#62718 Game of Thrones ShowRunners to produce Star Wars Trilogy

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 07 February 2018 - 04:28 AM

But we've already got the trilogy where everything is horrible, nothing matters and happiness is illegal.

We're really not gonna rest until we've filed every last minor imperfection off of Lonna Vash's left earlobe, are we? :turned:

#62152 Improved Civilians Only

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 12 January 2018 - 06:29 AM

For TSL, the installation of the NPC Overhaul mod is extremely modular and customisable - I've homebrewed my own version of it to have different replacers. So it's fairly easy to make your own version of that for TSL, though the install proceedure is much longer since it has an install option for almost each and every module file in the game. That said, it's fairly simple to update or change a single module, instead of just reinstalling everything if you want to make a small change to the mod. It's really quite useful!


Sadly, the Kotor 1 doesn't have this setup in its install and I've always wanted a version with it, since I basically have to pay much more attention and think much more if I want to customise it; plus I can't just make a single change to one module either.


If you know what you're doing, it might be possible to rejig a version of the K1 NPC Overhaul mod's TSLPatcher and then customise off that to give you what you want, but my knowledge of the patcher isn't really extensive enough to start trying that myself.

It is. Meh.


A mess that has its moments and fundamentally doesn't understand Luke Skywalker. Has two climaxes; makes everything from the OT feel like even more of a waste of time than Ep 7 did.


Rian Johnsson just isn't as clever as Chris Avellone and is too focused on all plot twists all the time with little real coherence or sense to a lot of them. It's not awful, but it's just oh so tired. RotJ's title feels like a cmmplete joke now.


That said, some well-executed scenes in amongst it all and some fun lines. I've seen worse, but I don't really see anything compelling me to watch any more.


It's safe when it should be different and it's different when it should be safe. At the end of the day we're still stuck with the tired old Empire vs. Rebellion on the brink with all the Jedi dead but one and nothing has progressed since thirty years prior. I could have skipped this and missed nothing of importance. And that's weird.

#61318 Hide The Spoiler Thread From The Front Page

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 16 December 2017 - 11:10 AM

So, on Deadlystream's home page, there's a panel called "recently added posts" that gives a short preview of each post. Given that, with Episode 8 fresh in cinemas, the spoiler thread for it is getting a lot of posts - is it possible to please hide posts from that thread from showing up in the "recently added posts" panel? It's a bit purpose defeating otherwise, since it's on the home page, so anyone casually browsing the site could randomly be spoiled.

#60703 EA is in trouble.

The article does not seem aware that in addition to lowering the credit requirements, they also lowered the amount of credits you get from completing the campaign.

#57347 TSLRCM XP Hssiss Glitch Bug Restored

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 23 June 2017 - 03:11 AM

Cute. You can also, say, not use TSLRCM if you don't like it. I wont cry over it.

Who on earth would go to the trouble of removing a massive, full-game mod over one small glitch?

#55728 Knights of the Old Republic III Thread - Rumor Central

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 21 April 2017 - 03:04 AM

No it doesn't... TOR is not canon... just like K1 and K2... So they have the creative license to do whatever they want aslong as lucasfilms give them the green light... It would be more likely a K1 remake than a K3 IMO to make the story canon

Ugh. No. No more remakes. Please. If Disney wants to canonise KOTOR, it can canonise KOTOR. They don't even have the excuse of being worried about their new continuity since the KOTOR era is so far removed from anything in Disney's new verse.


Now, since SWTOR is... yaknow, still an ongoing thing, Disney is almost certainly going to want to capitalise on that by linking any new KOTOR to it... which sadly means it'd have to be chained to their absolute abomination of Revan, the Exile and related's treatment, unless they wanted to totally retool the entire setting. But I didn't exactly like any of Disney's other reboots of the various Star Wars eras, so that idea appeals to me possibly even less.


Basically, Disney's caused the situation where everything they touch in Star Wars fills me with ominous dread.

#55726 Knights of the Old Republic III Thread - Rumor Central

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 21 April 2017 - 01:10 AM

The problem I see is that a KOTOR 3... well, it now has to follow on from and/or incorporate SWTOR's take on it all. And, put bluntly, I hate SWTOR's treatment of the KOTOR material.


And on a related note, I've been substantially less than a fan of Disney's reboot. So, sadly, I feel a KOTOR 3 is now at the point where... well, it's simply too late in my opinion. I doubt I'd like it and I even suspect it'd end up infuriating me. :(

#51953 SWTOR-Style HK-47 for K1

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 11 January 2017 - 11:57 AM

The only difference between the HK-47/50 designs and the SWTOR/esque HK-51 is in the head if I recall correctly.


"Dear DarthParametric,


Would you be willing to hack off your HK-51 remodel's head and graft it onto the K1 HK-47 like the messed up psycho we all imagine you to be?







#50631 Looking for Effixian's Zeison Sha/Jal Shey Reskins

Well, by astonishing coincidence, Effix has just joined the site. So you may be able to get direct answer from him.


Welcome, good to have you aboard!

#50287 TSLRCM 1.5.6

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 22 November 2016 - 08:20 PM

Yeah, but TSLRCM is kind of a non-negotiable requirement for my K2 games at this point.

Easily one of the best things for the prequels. I'd be up for that.

#48050 Kotor Apeiron

Posted by sEcOnDbOuToFiNsAnItY on 10 August 2016 - 04:32 AM

Except that Galaxy in Turmoil would be competing with Battlefront, AFAIK there are no upcoming licensed SW RPGs that Apeiron would get in the way of.

Is it really competition if one of the 'competitors' is in fact devoid of many internal organs and limbs?
