My Kotor Machinimas

My Kotor Machinimas

Hello, it's been a while since the beginning of the year, but I finally finished the machinima I was working on and I just wanted to share it here. I spent 3+ years on this since I first started it soon after the covid hit the world. Obviously I didn't work every single month on it but still it took way longer than expected. It's a second part to another machinima I did back on summer 2015 when I first started modding Kotor. Since then I learned a lot about the game and really put to use th

Blog #113: Ebon Hawk Light Fixture

I've been working on something and talking about it in private channels. I thought I'd ramble about it a bit more publicly now.  As you've guessed from the blog's title, I'll be chatting about the Ebon Hawk light fixture. (Exciting, I know.) You most likely know which texture that I'm referring to but for clarity's sake, it's this one: BioWare back in day seemed to like to source their designs from real world things and I think I've figured out where they got this design from.

Blog #112: The KotOR1 Warp Code List

Originally, I cribbed the original form of this list from the internet.  However, after I made the The TSL Warp Code List, I know I would have to make a list for the KotOR1 warp codes.  I already had the BOS:SR codes but realized that the list would be compiled much faster with the community’s help. This list and the TSL list, are living lists: if new codes are found (or introduced by way of new mods), they can be added.  As with the TSL list, new codes will be attributed in the main post.

Blog #111: The TSL Warp Code List

Originally I cribbed this list from the internet to assist me when I was making my Loading Screen Mods for TSL.  However, after I made the Replacement Loading Screens for KotOR2: Add-On Pack for those new areas, I wound up adding those warp codes to my own list.  I was recently asked about Brotherhood of Shadow warp codes on Discord recently - yes, I know it's a different game - and it reminded me of my TSL Warp Code list. So now I post it here.  If you find errors, please let me know.  If you h

Sometimes the Best Solution Is the Simplest: KotOR Modding Edition

I just learned the hard way that the phrase "sometimes the best solution is the simplest" can apply to KotoR modding as well. After the initial release of my KotOR 1 No Gendered Dialogue from Male NPCs mod, I was planning on adding another installation option to remove Holdan and Tanis Venn from the game entirely. I had spent a considerable amount of time and energy to figure out how to do it without causing bugs, and I want those changes to be made by setting up TSLPatcher to patch relevan

Character Creation Screen

Somebody asked if adding this back in was possible. However unfortunately changing that entry in the appearance.2da results in regular clothing giving the appearance of whatever it has been changed to. So for the time being I am not sure if this is possible, but I may look into it again at some point. If anybody knows otherwise, feel free to drop me a message.

How to Access Juhani's Conversaion about Canderous without Restoration Mods

If you follow the modding scene of Knights of the Old Republic, you might be aware of a conversation with Juhani where the player asks her why she is hostile towards Canderous. It is a commonly assumed that it is cut content, because the condition to trigger said conversation is unknown by the KotOR community, and there are mods that aim to restore said conversation. After thorough investigation into the game files, I finally discovered that it is actually possible to access Juhani's conver

KOTOR Ship and Fighter models

I always wanted to import KOTOR ships like Leviathan, Endar Spider, Ebon Hawk or other fighter into Blender and I found a way I found a page in moddb which contains those ships. Those were .max files but I converted them into .fbx format and managed to import them into blender I also used Holocron Toolset to extract ebon hawk or other ships to use them in Blender as well. With space backgrounds I managed to render some good images with those ships

Assault Korriban Academy

Assault Korriban Academy

In early 2021, the concept of an aggressive and alternate path into the Korriban Academy was conceived.  What if you could charge in lightsabers ignited and guns blazing into Korriban? Especially Post Events of the Leviathan (PEL)!  CONCEPT QUESTIONS: What if there was a Darkside & Lightside routes of assault to Korriban Temple? Would you subjugate it as a Sith defeating Master Uthar and usurping his authority or would you recruit him as your pawn? This latter option led to th

List of Same-Gender Romance Mods for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Series

As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and a player and modder of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series, I would be remiss if I do not compile a list for the same-gender romance mods for the KotOR series throughout the games' modding history. Here is the list of same-gender romance mods for the KotOR series. The listed mods are categorized by which KotOR game the mods were made for, sorted by the mods' original release dates in chronological order. This list was compile

KotOR Modding Update: August 2022

While I have always logged into Deadly Stream and Nexus Mods regularly to check if my mods receive any new comment or bug report, July-August 2022 marks my busiest period in working on KotOR mods since developing and releasing my KotOR 2 same-gender romance mods in 2016-2017. (Having lots of free time certainly helps)   Throughout the past couple of weeks, the things I have done in modding KotOR include:   Updating my Kreia reskin mod by converting the files from TGA to TPC.
