Blog #88 - What mods do you use for Tatooine?

Blog #88 - What mods do you use for Tatooine?

This post is part of a continuing series I've been doing for Darth Varkor's next movie.   He mention that other than using Xarwarz's skins for Dantooine, that he was pretty open to suggestions. The next area we'll be talking about possibly improving is Tatooine! When you set up your ideal Tatooine, what mods you do use?  Please list the mods that you use below for both the interiors, skyboxes, and the exteriors of this planet.  You can mix and match here so if there's parts that you like fr

Blog #87 - I want your TOP 10 issues with the M4-78 EP

I'll have to get working on the rest of the YouTube documentary eventually but I'm going to need your input in order to proceed. I'd like you to list which version you played, either version 1.2 or version 1.3. This is very important as some issues may have been fixed in 1.3 that were present in 1.2 !  (However, I still want to hear them as the documentary will cover each version in chronological order.) I'd like you to list where you acquired the mod. (Was it from here, MODDB, St

Blog #86 - What mods do you use for the Ebon Hawk?

I was asking DarthVarkor about skins he'd be using for his next movie.  He mention that other than using Xarwarz's skins for Dantooine, that he was pretty open to suggestions.  Let's tackle an area that we know that'll be in next movie . . . the Ebon Hawk.  When you set up your ideal Ebon Hawk, what mods you do use?  Please list the mods that you use below for both the interior and the exterior of our favorite star ship.  You can mix and match here so if there's parts that you like from one set

Blog #85 - So you need a soundtrack cover for KotOR I and/or II...

So you've ripped the tracks using one of the guides out there or you're just that clever with using Miles Sound Tools that you didn't even need one.  Congratulations!  You have that music to listen to to your hearts content. But what of the artwork that you probably want to track tag your MP3's with?  What ever shall you put in there?  Well, I have you covered.  (pun intended)  Here are two examples if nothing else comes to mind and . . .  a template if you have the picture and don't want t

Blog #84 - New version of a 10 year old video

This version of the content permanently replaces my old version.  It was 10 years old and it was showing it's age. It needed some work on it.  Hopefully the effort shows! A little background: To those that always wanted to see the cut romance ending to Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic for Dark Sided female characters, now you can. (Yes, I know Revan is canonically a male, but you have to play as a female to use this mod.)  Thanks again to JdNoa for creating this great mod.  T

Blog #83 - GUI elements from the Star Wars movies

In some mods I've seen, there has been a shift to use more modern looking elements for in-game lighting and advertisements.  Though pretty, they don't seem to accurately give the "feel" that the Star Wars movies do.  After all Mass Effect isn't Star Wars and vice versa.  Therefore, I've created this blog entry to simply show off what I think those computer interfaces should look like by using pictures from the movies (and the production studio that created them.)   These shots come fro

Blog #82 - VO should be done last in large projects

This blog post is actually for my own reference so I don't have to seek out which of the many posts I've mentioned it in. When folks mention their "big modding project" or their "huge overhaul" of either KotOR1 or KotOR2, here's what I used to quote...     If you actually wish to see if a large scale project will make it to release, see if they follow this advice.  If they don't, that project likely won't make it.  You may use the above quote to remind folks when "th

Blog #80 - Looking for a small voice part to be filled

I've been converting the Imperial Agent storyline into a audio drama.  From time to time, I need to have folks do the lines for droids and aliens because - as it's an audio drama - I can't rely on subtitles.  I'm looking for a someone to record the lines below  if they're interested.  British, Irish, Welsh, or Scottish accents preferred but I'll listen to all submissions.  Male or female voices welcome.  Mono or stereo.  MP3 or WAV. Lines: I request your attention.  I have an urgent me

Blog #78 - So much for Coruscant . . .

RAGEQUIT!   Well, this project at least.   Here's what I wanted to do. The Landing Video would have covered all three areas of the mod preceded by an orbit shot.         The pan would have been quick but the EH green screen would have only shown up after the pan stopped moving.   (I even had a skybox set up for the fountain module - no one ever pointed out that there's a blue Dantooine sky above that room but I sure as hell

Blog #77 - The "LucytheAlien" Situation

Since many of you lack the intestinal fortitude to ask me directly why she was banned, allow me to illuminate you. Multiple times, she violated Rule 6 - the bumping rule. She was warned many times via PMs not to do this but she continued to do so. She even bragged about doing so here.   Let's not forget her continual complaints that folks weren't working non-stop about mods she put in requests for. Modders will work on mods at their own pace and badgering them about it i

Blog #76 - Using M4-78 EP with Snigaroo's KOTOR2 Mod Build

Blog #76 - Using M4-78 EP with Snigaroo's KOTOR2 Mod Build

Snigaroo - one of the administrators over at the KOTOR2 Subreddit - dislikes using M4-78 EP. That's his right. However, when I do my next play-through of KOTOR2, I want to use both the KOTOR2 mod build and the M4-78 EP. Might anyone have any suggestions what the install order would be in this particular situation? You should assume that I am using the 4CD version of KotOR2 and that I am playing on a Windows 7 computer.   I'm leaving this blog open as I have no idea when M4-78 EP will r

Blog #75 - Seeking questions for the M4-78 Documentary (covering the M4-78 EP!)

Are you familiar with the M4-78 documentary series that Xuul and I have done? If so, be aware that I'll eventually have to sit down and work on the next chapter. (A new chapter will be on its way to the sometime in the near future - have no fear.) The next chapter that's coming to the playlist covers Darth Stoney's version of M4-78. That means the one I'll have to start writing after that is the M4-78 Enhancement Project. If you've played the EP and had any head-scratching mo

Blog #73 - Mod Request (Battle of Khoonda videos)

I'm not promoting this on my Status Update this morning as I don't want to divert folks from my assistance to my other blog post where I've trying to get folks to assist a movie maker. In this instance, this request is coming straight from me.   Yes, I know I've asked about requesting folks to remake videos elsewhere. This is a narrower field of vision - and doesn't have to do with dealing with either landing or take-off videos.   I'd like the following videos remade by the t

Blog #71 - Wanna Have a Small Part in the Next M4-78 Documentary Chapter?

Hello everybody! I've previously had someone else record a fine version of the line below but as he's also playing a larger role in the chapter, I'd rather not have any viewer confused by one person playing multiple parts. Therefore, I'd like to open the smaller part to the general public. If you are interested, record the part below and I'll let you know once I've found what I've needed. This role is not gender specific so anyone can feasibly offer an attempt. It would probably be easiest to

Blog #70 - What did SH actually do as an Admin?

What I Did For The Community Last Year   Have you wondered . . . what does Sith Holocron do as an administrator on this site?  Wonder no longer!   I’ve summed up what I’ve done this year so you can have an overview. Keep in mind some entries might just list a start date for an ongoing event – or it might take up from an event that took place from last year. There are also other things that I can’t freely talk about such as advice, staff chats, and secret projects that I am no

Blog #69 - My Birthday (in 2017)

My birthday is on December 6th. I have an idea that will cost you nothing and may help the community. If you were leaning towards wishing me a happy birthday, I'd rather you invest your energy towards this concept instead.   Think of a mod you've download from this site. Anyone's mod. If you liked that mod - even a little - I'd love for you to go that mods page and leave a comprehensive review what you liked about that mod. Don't just leave a one sentence review - go into actual detail

Blog #68 - Order of the Flashpoints

I have mentioned in this blog that I've turned my class quests into a "SWTOR Audio Drama" as it keeps my mind focused elsewhere when I'm on my treadmill. I've decided to fill in the blanks in the Audio Drama by including the Flashpoints. However . . . some Flashpoints require a full group and some of them are only available in Veteran Mode (formerly known as Tactical Mode) or Master Mode (formerly known as Hard Mode). With the change of the mode names and other issues, it's been a bit

Blog #66 - New Landing and Take-Off Videos for M4-78?

I asked tjsase if he could redo his M4-78 landing and take-off videos but using the skyboxes from Stoney's original mod but he might not be able to do it for time reasons. Anyone up to the challenge of something on the level of tjsase's video? I can provide sound effects and the music used during the landing sequences.

Blog #65 - Lair of Shadows: Nar Shaddaa Stronghold

Previous topic title: A Celebration of Life Day! Yes, I'm early on this one but this will require planning. My thought was to celebrate Life Day by having one of my characters sing a Christmas song in my Nar Shaddaa Stronghold. Several rooms have a Life Day theme in them. I though it might be fun to have to make a cheesy video with Deadly Stream folks partying it up in my Stronghold ' "Emfour's Lair of Shadows" - drinking, dancing, and carrying on. I haven't found a song yet to si
