About This File

This mod edits the various landing pad areas so that you can see the through the Ebon Hawk's and Telos shuttles' cockpit windows, which should be a bit more interesting than the blacked-out windows in the vanilla game.  It also adds more detail to the room which is visible through the hole in the side of the ship in the prologue.

This mod includes some model fixes to the Telos hangars and Telos shuttle crash site developed by PapaZinos, which are included here with permission.  I have also made the following area model improvements:
- Added proper lightmaps and missing geometry to the Ebon Hawk on Malachor V (i.e. landing gear hatches, the exit ramp, and the entire port side).  Also patched the chunk missing from the starboard side for better consistency with the prerendered cutscenes.
- Fixed the flickering windows at the Citadel Station Entertainment Module's shuttle terminals.
- Changed the texture for the base of the crane in the Telos Academy to one that doesn't look like concrete.
- Added unique environment map reflections for the Ebon Hawk similar to KOTOR 1 ("Enhanced Reflections" version only).
- Replaced the 512x512 vanilla Ebon Hawk texture with the 1024x1024 version from KOTOR 1  ("Enhanced Reflections" version only).

Because mods that edit the same area models are incompatible by nature, I have included optional compatibility patches for use with other notable mods.  Please see the "Compatibility" section below for further information.

**IMPORTANT**:  There are two versions of this mod:
- Enhanced Reflections - Adds new area-specific reflections to the Ebon Hawk's exterior.  Recommended if you do not use any mods that reskin/upscale the Ebon Hawk exterior (or if you do and are willing to do some extra work to make them compatible).
- Reskin Friendly - More readily compatibility with reskins of the Ebon Hawk exterior.  Does not include the new reflections.

Thank you for downloading, and I hope you enjoy this mod!


If you are using one or more of the mods listed in the "Compatibility" section below, install them first.  Run "INSTALL.exe" and follow the prompts.  It is normal to see warnings that 202tel.mod and 222tel.mod already exist and have been skipped.  When installation is complete, copy the files from any required compatibility patches into your game's Override folder, overwriting when asked.  If you are using TSLRCM from the Steam Workshop, see this guide for how to combine installer-based mods with the Workshop:

For best results, I recommend using a save from before visiting the Citadel Station Entertainment Module for the first time.  However, this is not required.  If you continue from a later save, all you will miss are a couple of pilots for the Entertainment Module shuttles.

This mod is compatible with The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM).  For best results, install this mod after TSLRCM, any of the mods listed below, or any other mods which make significant edits to the Telos Entertainment Module.

Except as noted below, this mod is incompatible with any other mods that edit the same files.  The main installation is compatible with following mods:
- Ultimate Citadel Station Repairs by PapaZinos (
- Telos Model Repairs by PapaZinos (

I have also included compatibility patches for the following mods:

- KOTOR 2 Community Patch (K2CP) (
- M4-78 Enhancement Project (
- High Quality Skyboxes II for TSL by Kexikus (
- Realistic Nar Shaddaa Skybox by Sharen Thrawn (
- Telos Polar Academy Hangar Skybox by DarthParametric (
- Coruscant Jedi Temple by deathdisco (
- Nar Shaddaa Landing Pad Repair by PapaZinos (
- Spark Effect - Ebon Hawk by PapaZinos (

This mod is compatible with most reskins and texture mods.  If you use the "Enhanced Reflections" install package with a mod that reskins the exterior of the Ebon Hawk, the Telos military base, and/or the Telos polar academy, follow the steps below.

If you are using an Ebon Hawk reskin with the "Enhanced Reflections" version, perform the following steps:
1.  Make a copy of PER_EH1.tga/txi for each row in the table below, named to match the Texture Name column.
2.  Open each of the resulting TXI files in a text editor and change the envmaptexture or bumpyshinytexture parameter to the corresponding "EnvMap" in the table.
3.  Delete each corresponding TPC file from this mod, as well as kor_ehok.tpc.

Texture Name         EnvMap                               Notes:
wk_dan_eh1            WK_CM_DanPad
wk_dxn_eh1            WK_CM_DxnHawk
wk_nar_eh1             WK_CM_NarPad
wk_per_eh1             WK_CM_PerHang
wk_telac_eh1          WK_CM_TelAcad
wk_telcit_eh1          WK_CM_TelHang
wk_cor_eh1             WK_CM_CorPad                Only needed if using with Coruscant Jedi Temple by deathdisco
wk_m478_eh1        WK_CM_M478Pad            Only needed if using with M4-78

If the reskin includes any of the following files, open their TXIs and change the "envmaptexture" or "bumpyshinytexture" as follows.  Also delete the conflicting TPC file from this mod.

Texture Name           EnvMap
002_ebo_main1        WK_CM_PerSpace
002_ebo_main3        WK_CM_PerSpace
mal_ebo_main2        WK_CM_MalHawk

If you are using a reskin mod for the Telos military base and/or polar academy with the "Enhanced Reflections" version, I recommend doing the following:
1.  Make extra copies of tel_tr07.tga/txi and rename them to wk_telacadmtl.tga/txi.
2.  Open wk_telacadmtl.txi with a text editor and change the envmaptexture to WK_CM_TelAcad.
3.  Delete the version of wk_telacadmtl.tpc from this mod.
