M4-78 Enhancement Project 1.2


1. Description:
This mod adds the planet of M4-78 to the game, where you can find Master Vash alive. The planet is only available after finishing Korriban. You will find a clue on how to get to M4-78 in Korriban's Sith Academy.


* Brand new planet consisting of seven new, unique locations!
* Over two hours of additional gameplay!
* Explore the mysterious Droid's Planet in a dialog-heavy adventure, with over 1000 lines of voiced dialogs!
* Your actions on M4-78 have impact on other planets, making it feel like a legitimate part of the game!
* Restored previously unavailable unique droid items for your party members!


Please note that for now, M4-78 Enhancement Project is ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH THE ENGLISH VERSION OF THE SITH LORDS!


2. Installation:
1. First, you will need to get the most up-to-date version of TSL Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM 1.8.4). It's available for download here: http://deadlystream....398-tslrcm-183/
Please note that M4-78EP will NOT work AT ALL without TSLRCM.
2. Follow TSLRCM's installation instructions.
3. Once TSLRCM is successfully installed, run M4-78EP.exe (or on Steam run the Workshop installation). Installer will ask you where you want to install the mod - it should figure out where TSLRCM is installed by itself, so you probably won't need to change that. If, for some reason, the installer shows an incorrect folder, make sure you change it to directory where KotOR 2 is installed (where swkotor2.exe is located, NOT any of subfolders), same as TSLRCM.
4. While we try our best to make this mod as bug-free as possible, with the many options of KOTOR2 and our small testing team it can happen that bugs, including critical ones, pass through. We will fix them, so check our site for any potential updates and patches.
5. Install any compatible mods you desire now.


3.1 1.2 Update fixlist:
* Fixed issue with Industrial Zone maintenance droid that allowed infinite experience.
* Fixed main quest breaking glitch involving T3's solo quest.
* Fixed being able to supply fuel by both Vogga and M4-78, rather than making the intended choice.
* Fixed journal being updated when you didn't find a part inside the cleaning droids rather than if you found a part.
* Removed many of the boxes near droid testing, allowed access to the loot of the remaining ones, updated loot tables of several 'containers' in that module to match TSLRCM's fixed lootscript.
* No longer reverts TSLRCM 1.8.4 fixes to the Hawk and Remote sound.
* Fixed certain console that has no VO not displaying dialogue with subtitles off.


3.2 1.1B Update fixlist:
* Fixed issue where "Data Transfer" could not be completed if acquired after meeting Kaah, but before visiting M4-78EP, or if you triggered the 'hidden' ending.
* After starting the 'Thrash' goal with IS-43 you can ask him again what you're supposed to do now, in case one might forget.
* Corrected wrong class-check in Black Market Droid conversation that could break the convo.
* Improved Telos Droid Assistance cutscene.
* Added VO that was missing from the installer.


3.3 Patch fixlist:
! Fixed "stuttering droid" bug.
! Additional content!
! Added 2 Easter Eggs. Go find them ;)
! Modified endgame sequences.
! Telos Attack and the Rebuild Academy are now properly updated like they should, as they were accidentally left out of the original installation.
! Various spelling and grammatical fixes throughout the mod.
! Updated several quest entries for added clarity.
! Changed learning "Niman" to "Juyo" for Sentinels, Assassins and Watchmasters.


* New sidequests "Elimination Required", "Global Infiltration" or "A Droid Too Many" will run together with the droid's solo quest to remove the radiation, and should provide some distraction from the walking. Finishing one of these quests will give the droid you control a small permanent boosts to their functionality.
* Several droids throughout the colony have more to say. And some brand new ones appeared!
* Killing Vash will no longer incorrectly increment 000_Jedi_Killed, which could lead to various issues.
* Fixed Vash appearing on M4-78 too soon when talking to T3 about the Jedi Masters.
* Fixed Vash appearing injured if it stated M4-78 and not dead when talking to T3.
* Changed hyperspace to look a little more like vanilla hopefully.
* The M4-78 landing and leaving movies now appear in the movies screen once seen ingame.
* M4-78's music can now be listened at from the 'music' tab after game completion.
* Changed learning "Niman" to "Juyo" for Sentinels, Assassins and Watchmasters, since Vash teaches Niman, and this could lead to gamebreaking issues if Vash wasn't the last Jedi Master the PC met using these classes.
* Grenn will acknowledge possessing M4-78 fuel during the Telos under Attack sequence.


* Fixed Lost Jedi not updating sometimes. (T3 hint)
* Fixed conversation break and no quest update with Disciple. (no Atton)
* Fixed Disciple vo/st mismatch.


M4-78 Landing path:
* Fixed exile appearing shortly before the interlude cut-scene.


M4-78 Cental Zone:
* Changed mechanics of the M4-78 door opening, preventing the door to open but an invisible wall still blocking you entrance in certain cases. Also fixed the door still being visibly floating above the building when open.
* Modified broken droid dialogue to make it slightly more obvious where to get the droid legs.
* If you kill Vash you will now also get a proper introduction to M4-78.
* The force field can no longer be bashed by a lightsaber (if so, why was Vash still there?)
* Fixed "hidden ending."
* Modified core-quest update script. It would return 'have 1' if you had 5 or more. Now it will always return you have enough (4) if that's the case.
* Fixed the maintenance droid not giving you 2 cores if you used a certain conversation options and then aborted the convo.


M4-78 Environmental Zone:
* Fixed HK not being re-added after HK-50 fight (missing file).
* Reduced hitpoints of boss droid
* Kaah's meeting will now give you a lightsaber (part) wheter he remains alive or dies.


M4-78 Industrial Zone:
* Fixed missing quest update from retrieving memory core from living astromech droids.
* Fixed all astromech droids once broken being able to give the part, not just the one who should have got it.
* Fixed IS-56 sometimes not talking about I0-01, blocking progress.
* Some Droid Designers were sent back to work, and will now use the computer animation instead of standing around doing nothing.
* Fixed medical vendor showing all stims twice in his inventory.
* You can now finish "Data Transfer" if you acquire the quest after completing the planet's storyline.


M4-78 Core:
* Fixed Kaah not properly appearing when leaving the mainframe in some cases.
* Kaah will no longer drop a lightsaber upon being killed.
* "M4-78: Recent History" will now close with a failure quest description if you enter the M4-78 core while it being rendered uncompletable.
* Reduced hitpoints of Vash


M4-78 flooded sections:
* IS-43 will now look the same during and after the radiation flood.


4. Uninstallation
Run uninstall program created in your game's main directory.


Q. Conversation breaks with error in the Korriban Academy.
A. M4-78EP is only for the english version of The Sith Lords. Other versions will not be able to start and complete the planet properly, sorry.


Q. M4-78 does not appear on the galaxy map.
A. Finish Korriban, and follow your quest instructions. Alternatively, another mod may conflict, please check our forums if this is the case.


Q. Slow performance in the Industrial Zone.
A. If you experience this, try turning down graphics for the duration of this map. Especially turning off (soft) shadows has noted a great increase in performance. Also make sure the Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1 fix is in your swkotor2.ini under [Graphics Options]!


Q. I can't finish "Recent history: M4-78"!
A. This quest requires you to very specifically interrogate droids and events around the world. It's intended to be only completable for the very thorough. Try to finish it if you can!
With the patch it will automatically fail if you don't, so it won't remain in your quest log for the entire game may you fail to do so.


Q. I am missing droids.
A. Make sure you have no incompatible mods running along M4-78EP.


Q. I can't find all 4 power cores for the puzzle
A. There are more than 4 cores to be found, so there are several options where you missed one or several. Check with every droid, and make sure to loot everything to find the ones you missed!

Will this work with saved games? Or Only fresh starts?


Also, I already have a handful of re-skin mods in my Override folder.. How would I go about installing this then?

This is what I have done so far:

  1. Installed the game
  2. installed TSLRCM 1.8.4
  3. Played half the game

Can I still get this to work? What if I made a back up of my Overide, then installed this and then copied my backup folder back into Override while not overwriting whatever M4-78 put in there? Would that work?

You'll need a save before you landed on Korriban.

As subtle as a brick through a window.

Please don't quote entire walls of text for no reason. It's really obnoxious. It just makes the thread difficult to navigate.
