NPC Diversity Pack [K1]
A Mod for Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic
Author: N-DReW25
0.8.0 Beta Release Date: 04.04.2024


Installation:
Please install the K1 Community Patch FIRST before this mod!

If you plan on using it, install the Unofficial K1CP Tweak Pack mod SECOND (This mod is optional and is NOT required for this mod to work)!

Simply click on this mod's TSLPatcher.exe and click install. Do know that this mod edits over 600 NPCs so feel free to get a snack as the mod installs :)


Description:
As with many modders, I have a vision for a comprehensive NPC Overhaul. This mod is currently in a BETA stage, whilst I don't expect bugs, I do expect player criticism/feedback alongside reports of possible mod conflicts with certain mods... updates will be released to fix any possible bugs, add popular player suggestions, possible hotfixes for incompatible mods and new content as they become possible.

What does this mod do?

This mod is comprised of several smaller mods that have been merged into one big mod, resulting in an immersive NPC Overhaul which is compatible with the K1 Community Patch.

This mod swaps the heads of hundreds of NPCs to prevent the 'clone' effect, it replaces the low poly Lite NPCs with actual NPC appearances, it diversifies the clothing, armor and weapons worn by NPCs without touching any of the NPC Loot drops, it modifies the .GIT files in some areas to remove duplicated NPCs, it swaps the soundsets of over 200 NPCs so that the enemies you fight have a truly random "death grunt" sound as they die and MORE! 


With this mod, over 600 NPCs will be affected (including NPCs which are commonly affected by other mods). It is HIGHLY advised to install this mod (AFTER the K1CP mod) BEFORE you install any new appearance mods.

For example, Galaxy of Faces is a mod which adds new appearances. Installing the NPC-DP BEFORE that mod will allow you to have GoF appearances alongside the NPC-DP's NPC Overhaul.


Known Bugs:
This mod shouldn't have bugs, but if there are feel free to report it to me on Deadlystream.


Incompatibilities:
Please report any incompatibilities!


Permissions:
Do NOT claim credit for this mod and do not use assets from this mod without my permission.

The NPC Diversity Pack alone shouldn't touch textures or models so it might be an incompatibility of some kind.

Of course. I've installed K1 Clothing Pack, Onderon Fashion, Smuggler Deluxe, and RC-K1CP.

Send me the file "danm14aa.mod" from your Modules folder and check if "N_CommF20", "N_CommFA20", "N_CommFB20", or "N_CommFC20" are in the Override. And if they are in the Override, please tell me whether they are a TPC or a TGA.

I'm thinking this issue might be with the K1 Clothing Pack and/or the RC-K1CP and not the NPC Overhaul itself.

The problem is RC-K1CP, a fix that was intended for the Czerka Protocol Officer was applied to the Tatooine White Commoner by mistake & as you can see in-game that fix is broken anyway.

 

Hope to have a fix for that out soon!

 

Off-topic, for the NPC Diversity Pack I am planning on merging some, or all, of the side installations of the mod into the main NPC Overhaul component. That means you'll get diversified NPCs, diversified soundsets, diversified weapons & GIT Tweak all at once.

 

Now, is there anyone opposed to this change before I start the merge?

Ever thought of using the Echani heads from redrob41's Playable Echani x6 mod? While I've heard it's difficult to get in contact with redrob41, he did allow SpaceAlex to use his assets in his own unfinished K1 Enhancement mod. It's under "NPC Modification Pack -> Bonus Content -> Echani(by redrob41). If he gave SpaceAlex permission to use his work, then he'd likely allow you to do the same as long as you give credit. That or SpaceAlex used those assets without permission. In that case, probably not a good idea to use them. 
 

Also, another thing I liked about SpaceAlex's mod is that the Black Vulkars and Hidden Beks have their own color schemes. Would you consider making that a future mod? It's supported by a line from Kandon Ark, "I see you're not wearing the Hidden Bek colors." This implies they wear different colors. 

Furthermore, I noticed that redrob41's "Specialized Combat Suits Modder's Resource," includes Black Vulkar and Davik Kang-themed combat suits. You could make Davik's guards Duros again and have them wear the purple Combat Suits. Human and Twi'lek NPCs could wear them as well. And the Republic Combat Suit could be used to reskin/remodel the "Republic Mod Armor."

The Echani aren't going to be added here, the goal of this mod is to simply use vanilla assets via the K1CP's .MOD files.

 

However, I do have plans for the Echani in particular and I can assure you that a reuse of RedRob's/SpaceAlex's work will be unnecessary for what I have planned. 😉

The Vulkar/Bek armors and color schemes will come in their own mod at some point.

 

The recent K1 Loot Overhaul was released so I may use it as a "base" for future weapons & armor mods. You don't HAVE to use the K1 Loot Overhaul, but any future use of the Combat Suit modder's resource will be based upon the loot drops of the K1 Loot Overhaul. This is to ensure that the Combat Suits are added in a balanced way in-game, the K1 Loot Overhaul didn't remove the Echani Fiber Armor on Taris so a Vulkar Combat Suit can replace it and make the player OP for no reason.

Fair enough. Oh and would Redrob's/SpaceAlex's Echani Mod be compatible with the NPC Diversity Pack?

RedRob's Echani Head mod, yes

 

Anything from SpaceAlex's K1 Enhancement Pack, unlikely

Thank you! Oh and are you planning on making an NPC Diversity Pack for TSL?

At some point... perhaps, though a TSL NPC Diversity Pack will require a lot of effort to make. The GIT Tweak feature in the K1 version only touches 5 modules or less for a few NPCs, a TSL version will need GIT Tweak for most of the modules with a major population of NPCs I'm afraid.

Is that why all your NPC diversity-type mods have been for K1 instead of K2? K1 does need it more, though. 

Oh and I'm planning on using Kainzorus Prime's NPC Overhaul with my playthrough of K2. I'm also planning to use TSLRCM and your Genoharadan Restoration. Are those compatible?
