Blog #55 - Retro Action Figure Space Station

I am an old man. I recall seeing this station work-project in one of my mother's magazines and feeling pangs of jealousy of those that had someone build it for them.           Reading the original article describing this station and downloading the building instructions can be found here.     I wonder if anyone on the site is handy enough to build it - as I certainly am not. There was a second time this magazine discussed play

Blog #54 - Possible Expansion to K1 Portrait Pack?

I'm considering doing an expansion pack for my NPC Portraits for KotOR 1 mod covering characters from Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge that would be released separately. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, I'll need some questions answered and perhaps a few save games. (1) Which characters in that mod can become temporary NPCs in your party and therefore have portraits that would be used in the game? I've found the following names . . . Akirakon (This is short

What I'm working on...

Oh, where to begin?   First of all, Happy 40th Birthday Star Wars. And what better way to celebrate than by finishing my current KotOR playthrough today. I've been recording this current playthrough(with obvious, redundant gaps and no movies), and all in all I have about 46 hours (256 GB) to sift through.   Why? Because I'm actually going to be using my YouTube Channel for something that'll keep my post-production skills sharp: Reviews and Analysis videos.   Now, there may be those of you

Entry #1: Legacy of the Sith - Theatrical Trailer

Hey everyone!   I'm new to this, so bare with me as I get used to the notion of blogging my updates on my films.   As of now, the third film in my series "Legacy of the Sith" stands at around 90% done, I'm currently working on filming/editing the final few scenes. I'm really happy with this film so far, I've been working on it since around April 2016 as I think it's my best work yet, it's the most exciting of the series so far, with some large action set pieces, and thanks to the help of Jen

Blog #53 - Help me name my next SWTOR Character

I have a number of characters that I've created on SWTOR but I think I probably should have made my Sith Inquisitor light sided as I found the Chapter 3 ending a better one when going light sided. I've decided to redo my Inquisitor using the same character design.     My legacy name is "Sev'n-ate" as a play on M4-78. (Har har.)   Any suggestions on a character name that breaks the original mold? Character List

Meet the Clan Leader!

Journal Entry 51 Burk'yc Prudii Two years and five months after Mandalore the Ultimate's demise at the hands of Revan.   This planet has become almost nostalgic. It reminds me of Dxun before the War, back when we trained Mando's in swamps, caves, and rivers. On Dxun some beasts were intelligent, others brainless. Here looks like a Republic recruiting holovid of the "outer rim." Looks can be deceiving, though. Herds of wild Rancor, sea serpents, and savage natives that eat the flesh of their en

Details on my Computer's Issue

As of a week ago, my home desktop has been getting serious hardware errors (bluescreen of death, specifically), and performance has degraded to nearly the point of programs flat-out freezing at some points.   Unfortunately, this is my only computer I can mod with, so I have to repair it in order to continue making the mods I already started.   I have only a very limited amount of experience in repairing computers, so I might need some one-on-one assistance in actually fixing it.   A

"Happy" Birthday...

The jury is decidely out on the "happy" part, but today is indeed my birthday. The grand 21 milestone, where most people would get drunk, do drugs, go to a strip club, or some combination of the three and more stuff.   I might drink, but won't try to get drunk, do not and have no intention of doing drugs, and I was walking past the strip club a day too early on the way to mini-golf with my brothers.   No, instead I was on the receiving end of a t-bone collision as a passenger at a very bad i

Blog #52 - Stormtrooper Tutorial

This original version of this tutorial I found ages ago on the Massassi Temple site. It was written by Tobbi Dala and the original version of the tutorial can be found through this link. What I've done here is to do some minor spelling corrections, add new pictures that show the tutorial using the most current version of Goldwave (the main program used in this tutorial) as of 20APR2017, and to provide new permanent links to 2 audio files needed for the tutorial.   After the large tutor

Blog #51 - Who wants to make HD versions of the trailers?

On the X-Box, the following trailers apparently played before the KOTOR games officially started. I've only ever played the game on PC so I've missed out on this factoid until recently. Here's the one for Knights of the Old Republic.     And here's the one of Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.           I was wondering if anyone has the KOTOR movie making chops to remake the video using highest resolution -

The Hidden Movie in KotOR II

Guys, i was looking in the Movies files, if there was something interresting (mainly because i searched for cutscenes, where the Visionary and Ravager was included). Now you can guess 20 times what it is, but no! I want to share it with you. The Movie is called "MalMov06.bik". But why talking, if i can show it you!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwa98oAE040&feature=youtu.be

Increasing the Polycount aka Dulling the blades

One thing that I think is an easy win in making KotOR more enjoyable is simply increasing the polycount on the different models. One click to tesselate the head model for the female NPC Twileks dulled the blade-like leeku on her head and made her look incredible. I hope to have a mod for it soon so everyone can enjoy this simple yet really effective mod in making KotOR a more modern looking game to be enjoyed by newcomers and old timers.

Future Plans for Shanilia?

List any bugs here, if you want.   Give any feedback here, if you want.   Insert any random comments here, if you want.   You get where this is going.....   So let's switch over to something new. Shanilia updates may happen after I patch whatever bugs arise. I didn't want to rush production and release more content to Shanila, without first making sure that everything is 100% straightened out. Wait what? You didn't test Shanilia out JC2? No, I did. But bugs can arise and feedback (hopefu

The premise is that you have up to 2,000 dollars of pretend money to spend. What sort of computer could I get for that? Assume I have a mouse and keyboard - everything else is up for grabs. It would also have to be able to play SWTOR on maximum settings. Have at it - and provide links and pictures if possible, please! Update: Instead of creating a whole new computer, I plan to rebuild my current computer. For reasons, I plan to stay with Windows 7 for the time being. Here are the parts

A Question on my Stream

Well it's been a little while, hasn't it? Mostly my fault, though. Been busy with school and working on the Toolset mostly, plus there's the usual fun with DnD every week.   I'm wanting to do another stream or two soon (I figure probably another US-and-then-EU session). I'm debating on continuing with the scripting because it's occurred to me that going anywhere from here requires and understanding of at the last the basic components of the game and the tools, so I might do a stream just on t

First list how I should be pronouncing your screen name if I wind up using your question in the documentary. 2. List your question/s.   Thanks for helping me provide you with a better quality documentary.
