Description:
N-DReW's Gameplay Improvement is an upcoming mod project that plans to cover the whole game by improving certain features in the game including NPC's, Party Members, Merchant Loot, Custom and Restored Content, Items, dialogue and much more. Future updates may yield content including small side quests! Please be aware this is only a DEMO and is incomplete but it does *plan* to span across the entire game and add new content!

1.24.0
Corspes in the Rift Station on Manaan have new appearances
The NPCs in the Rift Station modules have been revamped
Added "Republic" and "Sith" Selkath Variants from ROR
The surviving merc from the Rift Station will always go hostile, your player choices determine whether you gain DS Points, LS points or none at all (This is because he vanishes without a trace once you find the Star Map)
You can no longer return to Ahto City upon reaching the Rift Station until you've found the Star Map (This is because according to the merc the Sharks destroy any departing subs and the fact that Roland has no real dialogue for returning without any news)
The Dark Jedi Corspe is now a Republic Officer who now carries the Sonic Pistol used to kill the Firaxa (The original Footlockers now contain a Squad Recovery Stim and a Life Support Stim)
Modified Sami and Kono's dialogue and appearances
The scubba diver Merc now has matching VO in his death scene and normal dialogue
You can now destroy the Rift Harvesting machine without that hard puzzle (Light Side made easy)
The Tu'kata Queen and the Tu'kota Brutes now have brand new textures
The Shyrack Wyrms have a new texture and the Shyrack Raptors now have their cut content textures
Thalia May is now an Echani
Jorak Uln now has proper content and won't crash the game
The experimental Assassin Droid is now a HK-50 unit (placeholder)
Restored Bastila's Dantooine Crystal Lines
Dantooine Crystals now only give colour crystals instead of power crystals (Logically you shouldn't find naturally occuring Rubat Crystals when Rubat Crystals only naturally occur on Phemis according to Legends Canon)
Dantooine Crystals now have an inventory with a crystal like in TSL
Kinrath Eggs are no longer destroyable (Can be reverted if no one likes this)
Added an optional "Green Dantooine" reskin, no more odd yellow grass
Added an optional "Kotor 2 Pazaak" which turns the low res K1 Cards into the HD Cards from K2
Added Content for the Leviathan Hangar
BUG FIX: Fixed a game breaking bug which crashed the game when spawning Darth Bandon
BUG FIX: You can no longer "Insert your Lightsaber" into the Whimpering Locker in the Rift station if you aren't equipted with a Lightsaber (Locker dialogue also reworked)
BUG FIX: Restored the ability to talk to Firith Me
BUG FIX: The Slave in Davik's Estate now has a body texture
BUG FIX: Davik Kang no longer drops dead during his intro cutscene
BUG FIX: The Hangar Security Terminal which was once the normal Security Terminal and the Security Terminal which was once the Hangar Security Termina in Davik's estate and both been written and swapped back to their proper place
BUG FIX: Zhug Brother in Davik's Estate now has a Duro soundset instead of a 
BUG FIX: Tanis' droids are now fixed
BUG FIX: For the second time, Shaardan now properly spawns in Ajunta Pall's tomb
BUG FIX: The Selkath Sith Apprentices are now neutral instead of hostile, thus fixing them

For previous updates please check the update log

NPCs overhauled throughout all areas the mod covers
NPC Loot Drops overhauled
Merchant loot overhauled (Merchants now have lore friendly loot worth buying)
Item stats overhauled
Party Member and player stats overhauled
Movie Style Dark Side Transitions
Realistic Visual Effects
"Blasters Reloaded" style balance

Domino5555, it's not only you. I also have problems entering the Lower City Apartments. In fact it was the apartment near the entrance of the Lower City when we met Canderous for the first time. The other one, I enter without problems. I hope the modder see this and solve the problem, This mod is very good.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I'm receiving a CTD when trying to enter the Lower City Apartments.

I noticed that. There is also a crash in the Upper City Cantina. I think the Lower City Apartments (Matrik's Apartment specifically) crashes because I tried implementing Khriby's Bith Musician Instruments into the chest that usually has the Echani Armor but because that mod is OP I've decided to dissect the Bith Insutrments mod and implement it into this mod in a way that's balanced but since it hasn't been done yet it crashes and I think the Upper City Cantina crashes because I tried writing a script to give you Bendak Starkillers Armor from Ajuur but I guess I didn't write it correctly. I will fix that in a bug fix update.

Updates usually come every Month. Reason it took so long with the newest update is because I couldn't mod for two weeks straight. But I can make an exception and hopefully push a bug fix update soon.

What changes did you make to 1.10.2?

I see I forgot to update the readme on the download page

 

Off the top of my head

 

I've added fire to the Endar Spire

Scouts and Scoundrels get a republic soldier helmtet

Soldiers get a republic commando mask from bossr

Rewrote Trask dialogue

Added Jedi general robes from bossr

Added new commoner clothing variants for male, female and fat

Added commoners wearing Scout clothing (WIP, More to come)

Changed all of the stats of weapons

Can you talk to Kainzorus Prime about making a version of dialog.tlk with PC Response Moderation included?
While I could do that I’d have to wait until the project is done because I edit the dialog.tlk file to modify the descriptions of feats while Kains mod simply changes the dialogue options of certain dialogues. I could instead modify said dialogues and give them Kain style dialogue choices instead of Biowarw ones, again once the project is in a finished state.

 

Also, Trask as a Jedi still doesn't seem to work.
What specifically doesn’t work? I need to know this so I can fix it.

Never mind, I just tested it with a new override (should've been first step) and it worked. I have no idea what's causing the issue, because there are no direct file conflicts, but the mod is fine. Sorry about that (happy new year BTW).

That sounds like a lot of work (then again so would compatibility editing the tlk), but would be awesome if so. Whether or not you do that, this'll definitely be super cool when finished.

I'm not going to lie I will still probably fix up things like punctuation and choice of wording for Trask at some point.

Cool indeed. As this is a Gameplay Improvement Mod I am not opposed to doing this for dialogues in the game.

N-DreW25 your mod is improving in each update.

 

I don't know if you solve or noted but some items aren't appearing the icons, like with the Sith Governor Robe or one Bith item in the Igear inventory. Could you solve those little things, please.

 

Thank you and have a good 2018 :)

Sorry N-DreW25, I found also another bug in which the lightsabers of Bastila and your first lightsaber in Dantooine appears with the wrong color description once you put them in the workbench. If you had an yellow lightsaber it appears as if it were a violet one. It seems an bug on the crystal, I don't know. I hope you can solve it.

 

Many thanks for this great mod.

"That's the point, Sergeant"

Sith Governor Robe icon will be fixed. If you've noticed I've fixed the Black Vulkar Combat Suit Icon in this recent update. As for the Bith Item, I will probably remove that from Igear's inventory and readd the Bith Instruments as fully functioning weapons later on in another location on Taris.

So yellow Lightsabers are appearing purple? Can you please tell me if all the Yellow Lightsabers are purple? (Double Bladed, Single Hilt, Short Hilt etc) and can you confirm if all the purple Lightsabers appear purple?

 

This was my fault as all Lightsabers now have new crystal properties meaning the Crystal upgrades have new stats now though I took the easy way of changing the stats of all Lightsabers and now this is the mistake I made.

Oh, thanks for the reply NDreW25. I use the KSE and I could see that the lightsabers and the doublelightsabers are with the colors all mixed. The short ones are ok, as far as I could see.

Something that I liked about your mod is how the increased difficulty is seamless integrated while we move forward in the game. Finally I can say that Taris is a great, major improvement. We can get an reasonable quality loot. To me this is something that should have on others mods as well.

 

I have one question, you removed the plus eight dexterity of the robes if I'm not mistaken. It's because you have in mind more unique robes in mind? That would be great if true.

 

Do you know the mods of curtis1973 in Nexus? He did an incredible job in bring all the npcs, player faces, robes, armors, lightsabers, etc to a higher resolution. If you didn't check it out. It has an tremendous value and quality.

That is a dexterity restriction: Normally you'd not get a plus 8 or more in a playthrough for the robes to restrict it so it's been removed, besides its a rob,  it shouldn't restrict at all. I also removed the Jedi Defense requirement so non-Jedi party members can wear the robes

I am familiar with his mods, though I will not seek to add his mods to my own. Reason for this is that the new armours and NPC's will look extremely low res compared to his work by default. Mods like his should be installed after mine if the user wants to use mods like that, that's what I'd do.

 

Also, I have a future plan to add more commoner NPC head variants into the mod at some point in the future so adding Curtis' mod into mine will definitely make these new commoners look low res.
