A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION
High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes
Through the course of Knights of the Old Republic, the Ebon Hawk become's the player's home. Complete with a workbench, engine room, crew quarters, and racy swoop bike, the Ebon Hawk doesn't lack much. Except for a view, that is. Looking out the cockpit windows is less than inspiring, given the blurry and inaccurate view presented. After tjsase released his High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes for TSL, I knew the first game needed the same treatment.
This mod completely replaces the existing cockpit skybox with a newly modeled and textured skybox with HD textures. The skybox has been rendered to reasonably accurate perspective, and shows you a real, crisp view of the landing area.
Use of High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes is extremely easy: Put all the files in your Override folder and then play! That's it!
The new models and textures will automatically appear when you load up your last save. If the Ebon Hawk is taking too long to load, see "Texture Quality" below.
1. Open the .zip file for the mod
2. Open the folder labeled override
3. Extract all the files to your KotOR override folder
This mod should be compatible with any mod. I do not know of any other mods that alter the Ebon Hawk skybox, so it should be fine with any combination of mods.
Due to the way the skybox is set up and the massive file sizes used in this mod, the Ebon Hawk will take about 5-10 seconds longer to load each time.
There are four different size versions available on Nexus and Deadly Stream to suit different player needs. If the Ebon Hawk it taking too long to load, you can download smaller version to reduce load time somewhat:
- Extra Large: 2048 by 2048 textures, best quality, longest load time
- Large: 1536 by 1536 textures, great quality, long load time
- Medium: 1024 by 1024 textures, good quality, reduced load time
- Small: 512 by 512 textures, reduced quality, fastest load time
Credit goes to tjsase for inspiration from your TSL High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes and for giving me permission to do this mod.
Credit goes to Kexikus for the inspiration from your screenshots. They look fantastic so I modeled the screenshots for this mod after your High Definition Skyboxes mod.
