This mod, for me at least, started out as an idea back when I was discussing things like fumbling grenades and portable cover with Malkior. It re-surfaced when I stumbled upon and investigated the scripts the floating mines used. Then Khaledm99 on the KotOR Subreddit asked about a mod that would do something similar to what I had wondered about, so I decided to go ahead and give this a whirl.
What this mod does is allow you to build a "kit" at the workbenches. This is a one-time-use item that will create a floating mine droid that is friendly to you and hostile to your enemies, a welcome change. The droid can be talked to and given orders to follow you and you can determine how close an enemy can be before the mine will go to attack.
The settings are using the normal mine droid behavior as the defaults. The mine droid will not follow you (it will stay where it's spawned) and will target any enemy within 7 meters. You can talk to the droid and pick between three distances: 5 meters, 7 meters, and 10 meters.
In addition, if told to follow you, the droid will follow the current party member at all times and will stop following if you enter solo mode. Also the behaviors can be adjusted on a per-droid basis.
Lastly, two things: accessibility and damage. I've made it so you can't build the kits until you are level 12 AND have 15 or more points in the Repair skill (items do count towards this). As for the damage, first I'll show the vanilla damage calculations and then my own:
Vanilla: 1 to (
Modified: 1 to (
I've modified the damage to balance out the weakness of the mines and making the risk a bit more real compared to getting a mine in the face and only taking 1 point of damage...
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 have two choices to pick from when installing the mod. The first will simply install the mod and use my modified damage calculation. The second will apply the modified damage to the rest of the mines you'd normally encounter, just to be fair.
