Yavin Station Hangar / Ebon Hawk Turret Model

12 December 2017 - 01:44 AM

This is relation to the New Landing and Take-Off Videos request that I posted for Kexikus. When noting items that they would need for redoing the videos, this came up. (Emphases are mine.)

I looked at the model again and I think you're right. The main problem I had with it in the past turned out to be some issue with the smoothing rendering properly, and once that's fixed it looks better. Touch ups would still be nice, of course, and a new turret model would be required for the Peragus departure. There isn't one in the game.
Another model that's not in the game is Ahto City. I did create one for new scenes (as seen here) but the quality was not great. The geometry of Ahto City is not that complicated, though, so I'm sure it would be no trouble for the modelers here.
Oh, we also don't have Yavin Station.

Might anyone want to recreate either the Yavin Station Hangar, the Ebon Hawk turret, or both?

New Landing and Take-Off Videos

09 December 2017 - 03:48 PM

I just watched the TSL landing/takeoff videos again, and wow the quality really is terrible. We must be to the point now where it's time to re-render all those as some sort of large group project. But in terms of the skybox, it's very orange.

The actual animation would not be terribly difficult per say, just time consuming.

I'd be up for pitching in with that sort of thing. The animation, anyway. But the game's Ebon Hawk model is of lower quality than the cinematic ones, so I'd say that would be needed before anything.

Well, the others are equally bad / low quality so I don't see the point in doing only some cutscenes. But let's not discuss this in this thread. If someone wants to start such a project, he/she now knows that there are others who'd help and can create a thread for it.

I've made a request for something like this before, albeit with a much smaller scopeThis request would be for all of the landing and take off scenes in the games. I've got a suggestion for readers of this thread: please leave this thread for the folks that'll actually be working on the landing and take off videos. I'm sure they'll ask for your input if and when they need it. Helpful things to mention would likely be what sort of expertise you could offer for such a project.

(Modders quoted above, let me know if I need to adjust the wording of this initial post. PM me with suggestions. Admins may make alterations to this post without asking.)

Disciple and the cut-content Holocron Quest!

03 December 2017 - 02:22 PM

Seeing as one of our newer members has posted about 11 requests in this section recently, I've decided to post one of my long time favorite requests now.  Even though this was a blog entry previously.  (You may as well just respond to this rather than the blog now though.)


Disciple and the Holocrons . . . that sounds like a bad KOTOR cover band, doesn't it? Anyway . . .


As most of you know, there's some cut content in The Sith Lords regrading "lost holocrons" and Disciple's quest to find them all. During the quest you'd find several of them - both Jedi Holocrons and Sith Holocrons. You could gain force powers from the holocrons. It was a shame that it was unreleased as it actually gave you something to actually do with Disciple - a character that racks low on the NPC character likability scale.


And yes, there are sound files for this.



I hereby present a challenge: Using some or all of the lines in the above video, create a feasible mission and dialogue tree that would enable the Disciple and your Exile to complete that cut quest.  And then, release a TSLRCM compatible mod.


May the Force be with you.

Matching decorations with Strongholds

In your opinion . . .

1) Which Stronghold matches the Voss decorations the best?

2) Which Stronghold matches Czerka decorations the best?

T3-M4 sounds like his KOTOR1 self in TSL

File Name: T3-M4 sounds like his KOTOR1 self in TSL

File Submitter: Sith Holocron

File Submitted: 22 Oct 2017

File Category: Mods

TSLRCM Compatible: Yes


Testing a theory . . .

I think a better mod would be to make him sound like T3-M4 from K1 tbh.


So you want T3-M4 to sound like he does in K1 when you're playing TSL? Hmmm. You could drop these in your Override folder and then at least he'll sound like he did when he's accompanying you. He'll sound the same as usual when engaging in conversation with you outside of combat.


That's about it.
