Welcome to deadlystream.com.

 

Today’s post will mostly be dealing with updates and information (That is what news is supposed to be, right?)

 

The first and most important update of the day has to do with one of our wonderful staff members here on the site. Modder and Administrator extraordinaire, Sith Holocron, is moving.

Since his travels will take him far (across an entire beautiful, magnificent and humble country) to Alaska he will be taking a break from his admin duties. You can read more about it in his post HERE.

 

To fill the void left by SH you can take up and administrator concerns with Acting Administrator Fair Strides or one of our other wonderful moderators.

 

In other news, the long Gamefront Saga appears to be finally over. Thanks in part to some quick (and legally questionable) actions by Nexusmods all of the files that could be found at the Gamefront archive are now available on Nexusmods. This is excellent news for anyone who was looking to find mods as the searching should in theory be both faster and more accurate now that it is being hosted on the Nexus servers. This means different things for different people.

 

 

For modders: you can reclaim your mods by following this link and contacting them as detailed at the bottom of their post

 

For users: You can find mods for KOTOR HERE and KOTOR 2 HERE

 

 

 

I have also gotten an update in regards to Kotor: Aperion, a project I spoke about in a previous news post.

Taylor Trotter, President and Game Director of Poem Studios responded to some emails I sent him a while back and had this to say in response to my article.

 

1)      [as of April 29th] I have had no contact with Disney or EA.

 

2)      The project will be released in a mod. It will require the original game and use the original voice and music files.

 

3)      [In regards to the mod looking “Un Kotor”]  If you want a shot by shot remake of KOTOR, then this is not your game and I am sorry but as artist (and I wholly believe that, video games are art and I am an artist above all) that I need to have creative liberties otherwise Apeiron becomes void, it becomes a tech project; a conversion modification where it sits as a footnote; and I cannot abide by that. I think the Old Republic definitely had a different aesthetic than the movies and exploring what that atheistic is and how people behaved is infinitely interesting. I will give you a very comical example put it proves my point. No where in KOTOR are there any toilets. Why? Who knows, maybe they didn't think of it, or maybe it was such a small thing it would have taken time and money to put in the game, but there are no toilets in KOTOR. There are in Apeiron and the reason is, is that we have the tech and the time to make KOTOR much more open and explorable. Now I'm sure most people will run past the restroom in the Taris Cantina and never think about it. But there are people who will say "Wait...toilets don't exist in Star Wars...its feels too...normal." And I get that, but (and I kid you not) there is a Wookieepedia article on toilets in Star Wars, and we have them because I'm using the same rule I've had for the past decade while playing DnD, if you can argue a point as why something works or why something is there 99% I'll allow it... We do not take artistic ethos lightly.

 

Thanks again for reading. Please stay tuned to my Youtube channel and deadlystream in the near future as I have some interesting projects in the work.

 

As always, have an excellent day.

Well, I can say that I like their artistic view on their project.

I came across the rescued Kotorfiles mods on Nexusmods recently, and I was so incredibly happy to see all the files I was searching for still being accessible.

 

Questionable or not, they've done a terrific job for all the players out there.

I'm pleased to have seen a page on there for the Reshade project that seems to be updated and with some impressive screenshots to match.

I've always said the worst problem with TSL's visuals is the lighting, and hopefully with this, we could be able to fix it. :)

Well I must say that in order to dl files larger than 2mb u must register for a "Free account" that cost... Their version of free isn't truly free!!!! another way to get files from filefront is to go to the "wayback machine" @ www.archives.org and search for files from a snapshot!!! :/

I'd have to agree with Lucy, I made a free profile on nexus mods and have downloaded around 1 gb in 2 weeks without a single problem.

Thank you FS for past and current modding help!

Just to verify, I have more unlimited downloads there than anywhere else. I use a fully free account, and my biggest concern is when I download too much to fit my Hard Drive.
