About This File

The K1 Community Patch (K1CP) is a compilation of previous bugfix mods and some new original fixes put together with the intention of resolving the many and various issues that KOTOR has. This includes some well-known game breaking bugs/softlocks, broken quests, inaccessible content, as well as lesser issues such as problems in conversations, visual inconsistencies, player annoyances, etc. The intention is for the changes to be as seamless as possible, fixing and improving things whilst still retaining the original developer intent.

A huge thanks to all of the mod authors who created these mods, and allowed them to be included in this patch! Unfortunately, the individual list of changes has grown too long to be included in this post, however you can view a detailed breakdown of each author's contributions in the included readme file.

Installation:

Run INSTALL.exe and navigate to your K1 install folder. Generally speaking, this mod should be installed before anything else, except mods that do hard edits/overwrites of 2DA, TLK or MOD (module) files. Due to the size and complexity of the patch, installation may take a few minutes, depending on your system specs. Please be patient and allow it to finish.

 

Compatibility/Known Issues:

K1CP uses module injection in an attempt to remain as compatible as possible with other mods. This may result in issues with mods that simply put files in the Override folder. It is recommended that you consult the individual authors of any large scale mods, particularly those that edit DLGs and scripts, as to whether their work is compatible with K1CP. Some mods will likely require updates, some may need to be installed in a specific order, whilst others may be completely incompatible.

At this time, the KOTOR 1 Restoration (K1R) mod has not been tested with K1CP v1.8. While prior versions were compatible, this is highly unlikely to still be the case with the numerous changes made in the current version. As such, using K1R is done so at your own risk. In future a compatibility patch may be developed (but no promises).

These are the currently known bugs/issues with KOTOR (or K1CP itself) that are being worked on for the next release:

https://github.com/KOTORCommunityPatches/K1_Community_Patch/issues

If you find any others, especially with changes/additions K1CP makes, please report them so they can be fixed as soon as possible. Be sure to include as much information as possible, including a list of all the other mods you have installed and screenshots, if appropriate.

 

Uninstallation:

Given the complexity of this mod, a clean install of KOTOR is recommended. However, you can check through the installation log file if you wish to undo the changes made.

 

Permissions:

Due to this mod being a compilation from many different authors, please do not rehost/distribute it.

This looks great. Me and many other KOTOR vets thank you for your service. Will you plan on doing a KOTOR 2 version of this?

 

Yes, after I take care of more of the "known bugs" list :)

This is very nice job. Fixes are always welcome. I'm wondering how will it run with my mods, gonna check this out. In a case of some bugs, I'll let you know.

This is most likely compatible with most mods. Just install this last and you should be good :) Definitely let me know though!

If I may ask, what makes this mod incompatible with K1R?

 

Edit:

I would highly recommend getting into contact with LordDeathRay to see if you could incorporate some of his KOTOR Improvement mod into your patch (https://www.nexusmods.com/kotor/mods/562).

It seems to cover a few of the bugs that you mention: (namely Shaardan with a sword, Czerka employees on Korriban).

As far as K1R compatibility, there are a number of .dlg files that replace the same field (and I haven't checked to verify whether or not the values that are replaced are the same, or which should be overridden). The other (and bigger) issue is that there are a number of script files that both mods modify. I'm delaying going through and checking them with a hex editor (or other means) until I consider this mod in a complete state so that I only have to do it once (and I make sure to get everything when I do).

Thanks for the link to that mod! Looking over it, although it does fix a few of the issues, it looks like there's a huge amount of changes made that I don't think fit in this patch. It will probably be easier for me to create the fixes on my own rather than cherry-pick them from that mod. However, when I get a chance I'll look over the mod and see how hard it would be to take what I need, and if it doesn't look too hard, I'll get in touch with the author about permission :) (Hard in terms of amount of work compared to doing it from scratch, not in terms of actual difficulty).

Yes, the latest version should fix all issues in the Shadowlands on Kashyyyk. If there are still any issues, PLEASE let me know! :)

When I've installed it (after BoS SR and after K1R) I've got 43 warnings,
Most of them:
• Warning: A file named k35_vic_torture5.ncs already exists in the Override folder. Skipping file...

Others like:
• Warning: A file named ebo_m40ad.mod already exists in the Modules folder. Skipping file...

Others like:
• Warning: A Field with the label "CameraID" already exists at "ReplyList\43\", skipping it...

And others like:
• Warning: No changes could be applied to GFF file man26_enter6.dlg.

Well, I've started a new playthrough and almost complete the Spiral of Endar without problems. After that I used a Savegame included with BoS SR (saved
Inside the Ebon Hawk in Korriban, which permits initiate the main quest of the BoS SR in very little time) and has worked with no problems the few minuts
I've been playing following the quest (including changing planets twice, talks and combats). I hope it runs so well with a real and complete playthrough of K1

Absolutely is not a deep testing work but, at least, now I know that it "could" work...

I was under the impression that K1R and BoS:SR weren't compatible with each other, but I may be wrong lol.

Those warnings should be safe to ignore, although it's possible using the BoS:SR save could cause problems (just cause using saves that didn't have mods installed when you DO have mods installed will generally cause issues).

Definitely let us know how it goes though, and thanks for testing! :)

The posts and info at the page of BoS:SR says that they're compatible ALWAYS that you install FIRST BoS:SR and AFTER K1R (in fact, I did the same process mentioned in my previus post before install the Community Patch).

 

I agree with the comment about the save, I had in my mind, but I wanted to try it.

Really useful mod!

It's great to see someone managed to merge blennus' and danil's patches together finally in addition to all the other fixes added.

I had a question though... A few of the changes made to character appearances are not to my liking and I would prefer them to go back to being default.

Specifically, I'm not a fan of the changes that N-DReW25 made to Vrook and Zhar's robes, and I don't like the change from Sith Uniforms to Dark Jedi Robes for the Sith Academy Students and Faculty (Uthar, Yuthura, Jorak, Shardan, Lashowe, Mekel, etc.) in JCarter426's portion.

Is there any easy way to revert these NPC's back to their default appearances? Is it a matter of just deleting the corresponding .UTC files or would that cause complications? I'm familiar with editing .UTC files myself, so any help or a nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

My changes to Vrook and Zhar was done merely because the "Revelation" cutscene on the Leviathan depicted them with opposite robes than what they had in Vanilla. I do believe deleting files "dan13_vrook.utc" and "dan13_zhar.utc" from the override will remove my mod. 

 

To A Future Pilot: Perhaps make these two mods optional, or at least JCarter's mod as his mod is far bigger than my own.

Thanks for the rapid response Drew, I had seen your reasoning when I looked at your mod when I was updating my mod folder last October. I'm just used to their old look. Love the rest of your additions here though and already had them individually downloaded.

With that part answered, hopefully someone else will know if I can somehow fix JCarter's portion to my liking, because there's a lot of good changes in there and I'd hate to lose the whole thing.

The changes you're talking about are not part of the Community Patch.

Also, you're wrong. [Force Persuade] You do like them and their original uniforms are terrible.

I...I'm wrong...I do like th... Now wait just a minute!

So, the description was rather vague, what parts of your mod were included then?

Just various other fixes. I posted the specifics somewhere but I forget where, so, the stuff I remember is some appearance corrections (Bandon's entourage being but not looking like Dark Jedi, for example), gender corrections (NPCs meant to be female but looking male, and vice versa, some with restored dialogue), some issues with NPCs that would loop animations but do a stupid spinning thing if you talked to them, and I think Shaardan missing his lightsaber in one area. Oh, and Dak's inventory being wrong in one area.

Ah, that's great then. I read your changelog for Back in Black and I was hoping the Bandon's Dark Jedi part was one of the changes that carried over, that's a great idea since it was weird not seeing any proper Dark Jedi on Korriban. The rest was all stuff I agreed with, so I'll just have to fiddle with Shardan's inventory since I made a mod that added an Eralam crystal to it, making it available to LS characters.

Looks like JC and N-DreW have already got you covered :) I included all of the adjustements and fixes in JC's mod, except for making the students and Uthar/Yuthura wear jedi robes. (Since as much as I like that, it doesn't fit in a patch). Deleting the files N-DreW mentioned will remove those adjustements, however just make sure no other mods have edited those files. If they have, you can remove them from the K1CP by editing the changes.ini file in the Part 1 folder in tslpatchdata. Remove the lines File22=dan13_zhar.utc and File21=dan13_vrook.utc from the [GFFList] section. Then remove any sections that begin with [gff_dan13_vrook...] or [gff_dan13_zhar...] from the rest of the file (remove the header and everything beneath it until you reach the next header). I hope that helps, and I'm glad you like the patch!

Thanks for the advice. I started the process of modernizing my mod collection last October so I'm fairly confident none of my other mods mess with Vrook or Zhar so all should be well. This patch really is a dream come true and will massively clean up my folder once all is said and done. Cheers.
