NAME: NPC Auto-Leveller
TYPE: Modder's Resource
DATE RELEASED: July 2, 2017
A while back, Darth Tyren was asking me about how the KotOR 2 balances the enemies to make them tougher as you go on through the game. We then spent a few hours running some tests and digging through the files, with the end result being that the game seems to just upgrade the enemies' Hit Points and Force Points.
I then theorized that one could use the extra functions Obsidian added for modifying your skills, attributes, feats, and force powers to work up a framework for levelling up the NPCs without actually assigning them levels. This is the result of that work.
The heart of this modder's resource is the "fs_level.nss" #include file, where I've one main function called LevelUp and several support functions that will randomly assign feats, force powers, skill points (including support for cross-class skills), and attribute points at the appropriate times and in the appropriate amounts. I've scoured the various .2da files and the all of the default values and rules that the player has to obey are obeyed by the script as well.
Also, there are 750 .uti files included. There are 50 for each class, and each item handles the defense, saving throw, and attack modifier increases that a given class would get as they level. These items are not accessible or equippable in-game, as they use the hidden creature slots (specifically, slots 14 and 15).
I've shown how to use the #include file in the included "k_ai_master.nss" in the source folder. The compiled form is included in the installation.
An installation which involves the TSL Patcher has been made ready for your use and is the simplest and easiest way to carry out installation.
You don't have to use the installer if you're just using parts of this or adapting it, but it's an easy way to get it all set up and ready to go.
» KNOWN BUGS
Not exactly a bug, but the two slots I used may very well be used by animals like the Kinrath that have special properties to their attacks.

By FF97Hello everyone,
This is a modder's resource that is maybe useful for those who want to retexture Bao-Dur's arm and don't want to mess around to get the two seperate textures (P_bao_durA and P_baodur_arm) look the same. Now, the default model of Bao-Dur also uses the P_BaoDur_Arm texture for his arm.
By MagnetiiczThis contains UI elements that are found so far there are 25 PNG images.
By Thor110These are the files required to recreate the modules in the v0.4.0 Full Update Release of the K2 Expanded Galaxy Project.
Please do not re-distribute these files without permission, if you use them to create your own modules please strip them down to bear essentials for the modules in your project and do not re-distribute the templates without modification.
Per request, this is a modder's resource to fix unused models in TSL that had the "mouth cube" problem, AKA tongue tip dummies unintentionally set to render.
I have also included a model for Jedi Malak with his "mouth cube" fixed. Not to be confused with my Malak Mouth Fix mod, the model in this download has no further changes.

Atris (Darth Traya variant) (Full body): n_darthtraya.mdl/mdx

By SnigarooThis file is a hex-editable KOTOR executable for use in widescreen patching. The file was originally produced by Squ1zZy, and therefore DeadlyStream offers no technical support for the file or its use.
By JCarter426This is a template for the K2 style loadscreens. Included are a PNG overlay which you can place directly over your loadscreen background, as well as the PSD source. Note that the aspect ratio is 1:1, so the image will be stretched depending the display resolution. That's how the game's original loadscreens are.
NOTE TO ENDUSERS – THIS IS NOT INTENDED AS A PLAYABLE MOD!
This pack is a modder’s resource containing a custom Kel Dor head and modified body models with Kel Dor hands. This installer will perform a basic heads.2da and appearance.2da NPC row setup along with simple body variation UTCs for testing purposes. An on-enter script that spawns the UTCs next to the Ebon Hawk on Dantooine is provided in the TEST SCRIPT folder. Simply copy and paste the two NCS files into your Override folder.
Textures are provided with a basic placeholder diffuse for the head and a simple UV map for the hands. Because of the single texture requirement for variants, the hands have to share UV space with the body. This necessitated altering the UV layouts for all body models, compressing them 50% to make use of 1024x512 textures (original 512x512 body texture side-by-side with 512x512 hand texture). As such, the bodies are not compatible with third party textures/reskins. However, all models and textures use unique names, so there should be no conflicts/incompatibilities.
The head model has basic skin weights. The respirator mask has been weighted to the jaw to give it some movement during NPC dialogue, but possibly this may be a bit extreme. You may wish to experiment with your own adjustments to the skin weights, although it should be fine as-is for a player head, as they don't have any major jaw animation.
This is a modder's resource that adjusts the position of Bao-Dur's neck vertices so that they match the standard position of other heads. Bao-Dur's vanilla head will "float" if attached to standard bodies. This adjustment ensures the base of his neck will seat properly with the collars of standard body models, which is a necessity for potential future mods like Bao-Dur specific robes.
Here's another bit of scrap from my junk pile that someone may find a use for. A little while back I made some thigh-high boots for Bastila when Quanon was working on her Taris prisoner outfit. He didn't end up using them, so I tossed them into the abyss with my other rejects. The other day I was looking at the female Twi'lek body models for some reason, and I noticed that (the base version at least) has painted on thigh-high boots. On a whim, I imported my boot mesh and noted that, height-wise, they lined up almost perfectly. Even more interestingly, my UVs were very close in layout to the Twi'lek's legs, so much so that is was fairly trivial to rejig them to fit the existing textures. In practice I'm not sure how much purpose this serves, as from a distance it's basically impossible to tell the difference between painted on boots and my physically modelled boots, at least using vanilla textures, but I figured someone might find some use for it.
Because the vanilla female Twi'lek model has existing animations (dancing), I have provided a hex edited copy of the original which is now used as the supermodel. That way the booted variant is a simple Override drop-in with no 2DA editing required. Also included is a booted version of the Twi'lek assassin body. Additionally, I have also provided a version suitable for use as a player body that uses the regular S_Female03 supermodel.
I've supplied modified versions for those variation textures that don't have existing boot textures. There is also an optional variant of the base green variation which has black boots instead of red. The intent of course, given how terrible the vanilla textures are, is that someone will release a proper high quality retextured version, but the NPC portion is useable out of the box if people so desire.
As a side note for anyone using this directly rather than as a modder's resource, I would highly recommend the use of the optional alternate texture from RedRob41's Luxa Hair Fix mod. What can I say? I like hotpants. Only use the texture, mind, not the meshes.

This is an incomplete mod. I have uploaded it for someone to finish it or use its parts and do their own thing with it. This installer will set up what was finished. After installation, you can load a save from before going to Nar Shaddaa, find a Twi'lek there who will sell you a swoop bike, then race with it on Telos and Nar Shaddaa. The swoop bike will appear on your ship, and you can access the the Upgrade Screen. However, upgrades are unobtainable. To acquire them, cheat or mod them into the game.
To stop the Twi'lek from appearing, delete the following file from your override folder:
To completely remove the files installed by this installer, check the tslpatchdata folder and delete all the corresponding files in the override and Modules folders inside your game folder. Then take all the files from backup and put them back where they belong (.mod files go to Modules, everything else to override).

By InSidiousNot really a mod, more of a modding resource. Here I've gathered the 7 most useful
'lost' modules for KotOR 1 - that is, modules that had no .rim files, and were essentially
just room models in the game files. Why do I say 'most useful'? There are a few more -
one of which is a slice of corridor, and several bits of the Unknown World temple-top,
but none of these are much different or much more useful than the already existing modules,
or the ones I have packaged here. Neither are they particularly exemplary.
And so, here they are. I would guess that the modules' functions would be:
In 2006-7, I found a variety of 'lost' modules in KotOR I, which I released as a pack.
This consisted mainly of areas for which area models, walkmesh and lightmaps existed
in the game files, but no module file. I complied these for use.
Shortly aftewards I found around three others for TSL, which I intended to release
around the time of my release of another mod of mine. The mod got delayed, and I
forgot about the lost modules for a long time, until reminded by VarsityPuppet.
Unlike the KotOR I set, these don't appear to have been made for areas which were
then unused, but were probably for test effects, or similar purposes. They are:
000test - Empty, box-shaped room. The camera clips through the walls, like it
does in most custom modules.
000trl - Small, empty area with a foggy floor. Perhaps has something to do with
the main menu, when completed by a character with the Sith Lord prestige
999dia - Very large, flat plane, with walkmesh and lighting. Perhaps a test?
Usage and credit
I make no claim over usage - you may create and upload your own versions of this mod
however and wherever you like - but please credit me appropriately.
Please also do not upload or claim credit for an unmodified version of this mod elsewhere.
It's just rude.
This is a new mesh made from scratch to replicate the I-Wing shuttle/freighter from K1, the model for which was not included in TSL's files. It was made with the intention to replace the GWing shuttle that the Mandalorians use to take you to Onderon, but it could be used in other ways. It currently includes no texture, just a UV map, so you'll need to make your own texture to make much use of it. Includes ASCII and binary model and walkmesh/collision files.
Free for anyone to use and include in their own mod releases, but you must acknowledge the source. The mesh may not be released by itself or otherwise rehosted elsewhere.
By newbiemodder"Let the wookie win."-- C-3PO
Here is a new placeable I created for one of my own mods. I just took a standard table from the game and replaced the table top with a dejarik game top texture. There is a separate model file for the game pieces.
The .zip file contains all the necessary files. Just unpack and follow the ReadMe.
Hope you can use it.
This is a 3D model of the Harbinger that I extracted from KotOR II. Only half of it was present (as you only see half at Peragus) so I mirrored and stitched the model symmetrically.
This package also contains an alternate model of the Harbinger, in which I bent or removed some of the turrets to make it look like it has been war-torn.
Besides the models, I've included the original .tga texture as well as some alternate textures I made to make the ship look war-torn. This includes a color map, and incandescent map, a bump map, and a specularity map.
Any one is free to use this resource in their products. Enjoy!
