Malachor Lightning


Replacement Texture for Lightning on Malachor V 1.2


Here's my third small mod.


Replacement Texture for Lightning on Malachor V


MOD AUTHOR: Sith Holocron


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


Did the low resolution lighting ever irritate you when walking along Malachor V's surface? Me too!
Once again, I've decided to do something about it.
The new texture uses captures from a real lighting strike.
Constructive criticism is welcome.


About The Update:
When the mod was originally released, Darth Sapiens requested a version that has a flare on the cloud the lightning would be emanating from. I made him a version like that as a thank you for his helping the original version. I think it should be available to everyone – so now’s your turn to try it out.




There are two versions of the lightning now: the original version and the publicly-unreleased-until-now “flare” version. Both versions have their own folder. Choose your version's folder and put the 2 files inside it into your Override folder. The "Original" version has a choice of DDS or TGA. In that particular case, choose either one you wish.




Take them out again.


Known Bugs:


None known at this time.


Thank You Section:
Zbyl2: For the original testing of this mod.
Darth_Sapiens: For creating an alpha channel that made the black background transparent.
Kexikus: For pointing out transparency issues in the "Original Version"
Darth Parametric: For adding in the missing alpha for the "Original Version", correcting dimensions to power of 4 (2048x2048), and including a DDS version for optimal compression!

What's New in Version 1.2 (See full changelog)

  • 1.2: Darth Parametric added in the missing alpha for the "Original Version" of the lightning texture, corrected the dimensions to power of 4 (2048x2048), and included a DDS version for optimal compression.

Wow, SH! I just read the Revan book about 2 weeks ago and my first thought when I saw the pic for this mod was: Dromund Kaas!

Does this also fix the annoying green glow as well?

Ooh! Awesome! I absolutly love texture improvements that make things higher quality!

i like em :) just a suggestion, the original texture had a bit of a flare near the clouds, maybe you could recreate a similar "flash effect".

Fair Strides: It's only the lightning changed.

Darth Sapiens: I might be able to arrange something like that but it wouldn't be a public release. Since you helped me however...

If users don't like it for any reason, please let me know how it might be improved.

is this good for the m4-78ep???

There isn't any lightning texture in the M4-78 Enhancement Project so there will be no conflict. My mod is compatible with the TSLRCM.

Updated . . .

I haven't checked this in-game yet ... but I've never seen this ... TEL_Lightning tga 20737 Kb size to 507 Kb size after 32 bits RLE compression with a .... software.

20737 to 507 ... never seen that rate of compression on a tga ...


oh, btw, thx a lot ... "again" ... gonna check that flare version ASAP always hated low-textured Malachor!
