Blog #72 - Looking for mods for Taris and Endar Spire

I'm looking for recommendations for great mods for KOTOR1's Taris and the Endar Spire - both texture mods and anything else that might enhance the experience of those two planets in particular. Asking for a friend.

Some additional information about this particular blog: this request is less about playing the game and more about using the game to make movies. That's the reason that the user would mostly need visual enhancements to the game. I hope that helps you out with making suggestions. ;)

45 page views and only Xuul has suggestions?  I am so disappointed in you all.  ::rolling eyes::

I was away from my PC for a while. Now that I'm back, might I suggest my K1 Gameplay Improvement mod: This is my personal pet projects I've been working on and it's currently a playable Demo with it updating whenever bugs need fixing or I have new content for the mod. As it is a highly incompatible Demo with major content mods like K1R it wouldn't be the ideal mod for this but if your friend wants to just visually improve scenes for his movies I'd suggest the improvement as my mod, especially for the Endar Spire, features an NPC Overhaul far superior to that of the NPC Overhaul mod available on Deadlystream.

 

A problem that may affect the movie, however, is that one Trask Ulgo has been replaced with a Twi'lek Jedi who acts as a commander to the Soldier/Scout/Scoundrel player, not as your Jedi Master like in the old Jedi From The Start mods. Second I've added a Blaster Reloaded style thing to the mod where players are unable to get feats like rapid shot instead blaster item's give the player those feats when wielded.

My suggestion would be a fresh install: Install my K1 Gameplay Improvement mod first, then any texture mods. 

 

My suggestions for that would be

 

High-Quality Star Field and Nebulas- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/491-kotor-high-quality-starfields-and-nebulas/

 

Endar Spire Complete Overhaul Taris Texture (You've used this texture on its own for your K1 Portrait mod in the past, you may want to direct your friend on how he could do the same)- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/570-endar-spire-complete-overhaul/

 

Ultimate Endar Spire (For the actual Endar Spire)- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/998-kotor-ultimate-20-endar-spire/

 

High-Quality Skyboxes- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/723-high-quality-skyboxes/

 

Ultimate Taris- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/1017-kotor-ultimate-2-0-taris-upper-city/

 

Alternate Carth Mod- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/905-alternative-carth-mod/

The reason for this mod is because in his movies (I'll assume I've seen his movies, I'm avoiding mentioning his name just in case) Carth has this reskin even though your friend claims he didn't use this mod. To keep with consistency with his movies and K1 I'd suggest he use this mod.

Thanks for getting this topic started Sith Holocron!

 

For those wondering this is for my planned K1 prequel series after I wrap up my final film. Basically, I want the entire game to have an entirely new feel and look to it. I'm very keen on using Jorak Uln's mods for the Endar Spire, Taris & Manaan, and so far have the 2012 mods by XediiXarwarz for Dantooine, Tatooine, Kashyyyyk, Unknown World & Star Forge. But I welcome any suggestions from complete planet reskins, to character reskins and small adjustments to the game. (For example: DarthParametric's Taris escape cutscene adjustment is on my list.)

 

Alternate Carth Mod- http://deadlystream.com/forum/files/file/905-alternative-carth-mod/

The only mod I have ever had installed for Carth is jinger's Admiralty Mod and its TSLRCM patch.

Perhaps Jinger's mod adds the Carth reskin. Regardless, if you want to have a Carth that matches the Carth in your movies my mod is the way to go.

Maybe. The only reason I'm hesitant on using that mod is because it makes Carth look a lot older. Makes sense for TSL, sure, but he'd look younger in the prequels. I'm considering maybe using the Carth HD mod (I can't find it right now otherwise I'd link to it) .Though any other suggestions for Carth would be more than appreciated by anyone.

Unless you plan to do a special edition remake of your movies with new techniques and HD mods I'd recommend not overdoing the HD mods with your K1 movie. Reason for this is because you don't want a super HD 4k Carth in the prequels and have the standard quality Carth in your Original Trilogy movies. 

 

My other suggestions for Carth and other NPCs are:

Hah. Loving the goatee Carth, he looks so suave. Though, don't know if I could take him seriously with that look.
