It had to be updated eventually . . .


Here's my first very small mod. Updated. Yet again.


AUTHOR: Sith Holocron


GAMES: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords




The Galaxy Map texture of the Ebon Hawk was originally sized at 128x128. The texture is now sized to 512x512. In addition to the resolution bump, the actual texture is now animated. As the texture file is named the same in both KotOR games, the mod should be usable in both games.


However: I don't suggest using this with Knights of the Old Republic 2, if seeing planets only seen in Knights of the Old Republic 1 causes any measure of distress. (Use the KOTOR version instead found here. (http://deadlystream....ted-galaxy-map/)


There are now FOUR different versions that you can use!


Version 1: The original planets as laid out in the original un-modded game but animated and at higher resolution.


Version 2: In addition to the original planets, I've added Coruscant and M4-78 to the map.


Version 3: Mostly like Version 2 but with Cathalan added to the planet roster.


Version 4: This is the "April Fool's Version" of the Galaxy Map as described in this post. (http://deadlystream....oon/#entry44585)


Condensed Description for Version 4 as follows:


April Fools!


I still think the orange people in the Cathalan mod are ridiculous. My mockery for the Cathalan mod is on full display in this Galaxy Map. (See the News announcement for April 1st, 2016 for screenshots.)


Though [Version 4] is meant for Knights of the Old Republic 2 - as Cathalan was an awful mod made for K2 - this mod can and will work in KotOR1 if the installation instructions below are followed.




First, choose which of the four versions you want to use.


For Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2 - Extract the "LEH_scre03.tga" and the "LEH_scre03.txi" files into the SWKotOR2/Override folder.


For Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1 - Extract the "LEH_scre03.tga" and the "LEH_scre03.txi" files into the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic/Override folder.




Take them out again. ;)

What's New in Version 4.1 (See full changelog)


wow great improvement SH
THX! Is it compatible with TSL Galaxy Map fix (mod which repositions planets to be on precise canonical locations)?
i just installed it with the TSLRCM and it didn't work

It is ONLY the texture that you see before you click on the map. It is not the map where you choose the actual planets you go to.

If you look closely, it was actually made up of screen captures of the full sized KotOR2 Galaxy Map - cropped and resized. So folks looking closely for Manaan and Kashyyyk won't find them. And since I didn't have M4-78 installed - as I did this in 1.8.1, you can't see M4-78 on there either.

Darth Paulus: The positions of the planets follow the vanilla set up. I don't use that Galaxy Map fix mod so my screen captures wouldn't have used that line-up. I don't buy the positions that were used in that mod because the planets obviously aren't to scale, for one. Secondly, there are several different maps and who's to say that one is more "canon" than the other.
Sith Holocron: Thanks for the info. But I must disagree with the "canon" opinion. True, there were several different map layouts since 1995. And namely the map in Rebellion 1998 game was extremely different from today's canon. However, since that time the possitions of MAJORITY (including TSL planets) of the planets were solidified pretty well in the New Jedi Order book series or recently in The Essential Atlas, which is now the ultimate source. The Galaxy Map fix follows the set up of the post-1999 maps, which has the planets on thevery same locations, every time. It is HIGHLY improbable that they will change now after so many years. But, like I said it is your mod... ;-)
OK, I'll make you canon-obsessed folk a deal:

If the TSL Galaxy Map fix works with both the Coruscant Jedi Temple AND the M4-78 EP (and the are also compatible with each other and the TSLRCM 1.8 as well), then I will either update this Animated Map or just create a new thread to download it. Until then, no more canon discussion on this thread.


For the K1 folks, I won't make a new Animated Map specifically for K1 until disbeliever's Sleheyron reaches the general public.

(Bonus: I will even update the map for TSL when Darth InSidious' Rhen Var is available for download.)
Just tested it ingame. Great improvement! It stays in my override forever (or until you make new version).
Folks, I have been concentrating more on the suggestions than the compliments. That's unacceptable.

Thanks for your kind words, everyone.
A little update: I have just created a new version of the Galaxy Map that ...

A) has both M4-78 and Coruscant listed
B) doesn't have awkward with squares around any of the planets in the animation
C) uses the set up the planets as shown in Bead-V's mod

However, I won't be uploading the new TSL version until the M4-78 EP is released to the public.
Ahem. The new version is uploaded now.
