Hello everyone! New to the forums, but I've been on the site downloading countless works over the years.

 

I've had some mod ideas for KotOR II for years now, but I lack the time and skill to produce something along the lines of quality I've seen from the artists on here. I've decided to make this post for any creators looking for something to make, but aren't sure what they want to do. If anyone wants to use some of these ideas, then please do it! No need to credit me or ask me anything, I just want to shoot out some ideas that I've had for years in hopes of maybe seeing them come up on the downloads page! :D

Without further ado, here are some ideas I have had for mods for the last 5 years:

 

Armor Ideas:

 

Luke Skywalker's Dark Empire Armor-  https://i.pinimg.com...2f3f454b177.jpg

 

Darth Krayt's Vong Coral Armor- https://i.pinimg.com...ayt-silence.jpg

 

Jedi Master's Blindfold- Similar to that which Rahm Kota wears in The Force Unleashed. https://vignette.wik...=20090709061639

 

Blaster Ideas:

 

DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol- https://cdnb.artstat....jpg?1486512974

 

DC-15s Blaster Rifle- https://vignette.wik...=20080525151615

 

Bryar Blaster Pistol- https://vignette1.wi...=20170103145331

 

Tenloss Disruptor Rifle- http://www.jediknigh...emy/weap_04.jpg

 

Lightsaber Hilts:

 

Kol Skywalker's lightsaber- https://vignette.wik...=20100318152901

 

Ven Zallow's Lightsaber- https://i.pinimg.com...98caa1814ba.jpg

 

Darth Krayt's Lightsaber- https://static.comic...krayt_saber.jpg

 

Kanan Jarrus's Lightsaber- https://cdn.thingive...ew_featured.jpg

 

 

Sorry for the length, but I hope someone finds these suggestions interesting in case they're looking for an idea!

DL-44 and DC-15 have been done. I think the Bryar as well.

The other stuff is decent ideas for modding; if you want them to come to life you may consider asking the mods to move this thread to Modding Requests.

How would I go about having it moved then?
To be fair, I should have posted in Requests to begin with.

Inyri Forge did a Bryar Pistol for K1 - http://deadlystream....by-inyri-forge/

I made a DL-44 aeons ago which was included as part of the KOTOR Weaponry Improvement Project - https://www.nexusmod.../kotor/mods/134 (although it looks pretty terrible, blech)

The various Clonetrooper mods include a DC-15. For example http://deadlystream....ne-wars-armors/ and http://deadlystream....ne-wars-armors/

Kol Skywalker's saber is just a poor man's Graflex knockoff. You can get by with an ANH/ESB Luke or ROTS Anakin hilt. I made a Luke ANH hilt at one point, but it doesn't seem I ever released it. Oldflash did an Anakin ROTS hilt - https://www.nexusmod...kotor/mods/220/

I'm actually familiar with some of these works, now that you mention it. Although I think most of them are Kotor I exclusive.
I was hoping if some of these had already been done or were inspired from here they'd turn up in TSL.

If you know how to use MDLops, there is no such thing as K1 or TSL exclusive. I have the same lightsaber models for both games.

You know, I've used it before to port over the Prequel Lightsaber pack from KotOR to TSL, but it usually turns into a repeat hassle with the model coming over but the textures failing to render. I don't know if it's because I'm using an older version of MDLops or if it's just because I'm an amateur.
Other than the blasters though, most of that list is stuff I haven't seen.
I'd really like to see a Kol Skywalker hilt though... And it's NOT a Graflex knockoff! xD I mean, it is, but you can't substitute something with the Graflex, it's not authentic then! Lol

The only version of MDLops that works with lightsabers is the 0.5. And I understand your wish to see some hilt models, I am a lightsaber hilt freak myself and use 25 different models in K1 and 50 in TSL and I still wish to see a mod with Ezra first lightsaber in it.

MDLEdit will handle sabers just fine. All it takes is a simple decompile and recompile to the other game version. There's no need for any of the complexities with the old MDLOps replacer routine any more.

I think I'm running 0.5, but I'm not sure. Usually I avoid using it because it takes so long for me to get the textures set and the model working.
I hear you though, I really wish that there were more variety of lightsaber mods out there. I have a mix and match of stuff that I've pulled off of Filefront before it went down, and also stuff from here.
Right now Armor mods and HAD retextures seem to be what's in on the site, and I have no complaints about that at all! I just wish we had a TSLRCM compatible Ultimate Saber Mod, or a Legacy era saber pack.
But I can't complain too much, the quality of work coming out now is beyond professional. That's why I continue to support the game!

Thank you! I'll have to try this out when I go to do another TSL play through after my semester ends.

I dug out my ye olde Luke ANH saber and slapped together an installer for it. Also provided a straight override for the vanilla turquoise hilt. Not Kol's perhaps, but why settle for anything less than a genuine Graflex™?

Wow! You didn't have to do that!
Lol, part of my obsession with Kol's non-graflex Graflex is that I have so many renditions of it in my Override, and it's one of the few I'm missing!
But this is also one I'm missing, so it'll soon find a home in my Override too! Thanks again!

I was poking through my scrap heap earlier and noticed I have an ESB version that never made it past the WIP render stage, circa 2008. I can throw that one together as well if you want.

Sure, whatever you have time for!
I don't want to seem pestering at all, but I'd really appreciate that!
Do you happen to have an Anakin AOTC saber as well? I know that there's one from USM, but I was wondering if anyone else has ever done one?

I did do an Anakin AOTC high poly hilt, but that is around 32K polys, not a practical game model. Here are a few KOTOR bits and pieces I could find.

An untextured Vader ANH hilt. It could probably also be converted to an Anakin AOTC hilt without too much drama.

The TOR concept/Ven Zallow hilt (very low quality):

The Starkiller/Force Unleashed hilt that I could never get to work properly with MDLOps (should be fine now with MDLEdit though, a mere 9 years later):

The Ki-Adi-Mundi hilt:

An untextured Revan's hilt (apparently?):

Thank you so much! If you have anything else you're working on, I'll gladly give it a permanent position in my Override!
