    This mod adjusts the way the player acquires Jedi robes during their training on Dantooine. There are two parts, which can be installed individually or together: Apprentice Robes: The player will be equipped with Apprentice Robes as soon as they begin their training (in the montage). The Apprentice Robes look like brown Jedi Robes, but have the stats of Basic Clothing, so this is merely an aesthetic change. These robes have no prerequisites and can be worn by all humanoids in the party, regardless of Jedi class. Early Jedi Robes: Master Zhar will reward the player with Jedi Robes once they have chosen their Jedi class and constructed their lightsaber (i.e. as soon as they have the prerequisite to equip robes). Originally, he only granted them after all the trials were completed. The early access will allow you to wear robes in combat during the final trial.

    This turned out better than I expected: The video shows a test for an animated Malachor skybox and surprisingly it actually looks good. What you see are basically three layers: A skybox that has only terrain. A second skybox that shows the closest clouds including the "ceiling" and rotates around its axis. And a cylinder that has the distant clouds and rotates slower than the close clouds. And the video also shows my new lightning animation. The skybox is still not done though. I want to have more cloud contrast (all attempts for that were unsuccessful so far) which should also help with distinguishing the two cloud layers, the terrain color is not quite right and it needs to be lowered a bit as well. And then there are the lightning strikes coming directly from mountains that I need to move somewhere else. Oh and there's a rendering error where part of the terrain is cut off for some reason. Also not quite sure about the animation speed. I might have to make that faster. I might work on another skybox first though just to get a fresh perspective on Malachor afterwards.

    I noticed two issues regarding the Zhug attack in TSLRCM: Some of the appearances were wrong, so they were all clones of Azanti Zhug. More importantly, all the Zhugs were spawned as hostile. This would cause the cutscene to break if the AI for one of the party members spotted a Zhug and attacked. This had the unfortunate consequence of removing the choice to add a third party member to team up with Atton and Bao-Dur. This mod fixes both of those things. This mod requires TSLRCM version 1.8.5. It may not be compatible with earlier or later versions. Only 1.8.5 has been tested.

    I always liked how Luke was dressed in Return of the Jedi, I think it might fit well for a Grey Jedi kind of playthrough. For those who played Jedi Knight : Jedi Academy, Toshi made a really nice model of that particular outfit. Here's the one I mean, as it is in EA's Battlefront 2. Someone else made a thread about it a while ago and had the original modder's approval. I figured with the new rules and modding tools, this might be a good time to make a new request for it.

    So I'm working on a reflection for LME, should I make it a blog post? Or should I record footage of LME and talk about things? If you are not interested in LME at all, would you still give imput on which format you think would be better? Originally, I thought of doing a video and I started righting a script for it, but it's quickly devolved into a blog-like written article, so now I'm reconsidering what to do.

    Ah - so a mod has been submitted, and I hope it can be approved/released on time [May 4th] on that special day! Even though it wasn't -either sooner or later- it'll be OK, lol. Anyway, nothing fancy about the mod, here's a teaser of it: P.S. before guessing too far; it has nothing to do with making the [Taris UCN] area darker - so keep the expectations low. 😛 Update: it has been officially released! Many thanks to Admins/Mods for the approval - and May the 4th be with y'all!

    Very Nice! Load Screens for KotOR 1.1 by ajdrenter Description: This is a complete set of replacement load screens for high resolution UI scaled configurations. It includes compatibility patches for Jorak Uln's reskins, jc2's "Lehon Mandalorian Expansion", and Silveredge9's "Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge". So far there is a 16x9 version and 4x3 version. This mod requires a high resolution user interface mod such as "KotOR High Resolution Menus" by ndix UR. I also recommend "HD MENUS AND UI Assets" by JackInTheBox, who's mod provided the template for this mod. Installation: Just drag and drop from your desired folders to your override.

    I'm still alive: Not very impressive, I know but at least it's something^^ The models for Malachor are done as is the terrain pretty much. The clouds are still the same placeholders as before but with a different sun position which makes them look even worse. Next up is finishing the sky and then tune the terrain color. But I like where this is going already.

    This mod provides a work-around for those experiencing a problem with the grass on Dantooine where it becomes very glitchy. I believe you shouldn't have this problem with the latest versions of the game, but somehow I remember it happening in some cases. If you suffer from this problem then you can try this mod as an alternative to disabling grass completely whilst you play through Dantooine. What it does is make sure 'fast grass' is turned on for the 'high' graphical preset. The other presets are unaffected because that option is already enabled for them, but many of you will of course want to be able to switch to the 'high' graphics preset. Screenshots have now been included as of revision 1.01 and as you can tell it's very hard to notice a difference. To me it just looks slightly shorter in some spots with fast grass turned on. --Compatibility-- As far as I'm aware I'm the only one who uses this file so far and that was with Kotor 2 for my Reduced Graphics Mod. If you're ever asked to overwrite, say no and abort installation for now. --Installation-- Drop videoquality.2da into your Override folder. You should probably do this at the start of a new game. For everything else see the readme

    Option B has been working perfectly for me with no more security spikes throughout the whole game. To me option B makes more sense due to some problems with the level cap stopping you getting the full benefit from using skills. It's a very good solution to consistency problems in the game, and you can always go with option A to use your security spikes if you want to. No more annoyances about items you can't use and reminders of this being broken whilst you play the game. I found this to be a better playing experience because of that. Nice one!

    Hey everyone! Back in late summer I made this thread as I needed help porting Toshi's Luke Jedi Robes model from Jedi Academy. Well, I kind of dropped the project for a while because of school but I really want to get this done soon, preferably before Christmas. The mod is actually near completion, but I wanted to make this seriously and so I took it a step further. Here's the progress so far : The original model has been scaled and reshaped where needed be, I used the hands from the PMBAM model as that method would make it easier for the skinning process. Speaking of which, skinning is done, or at least to at satisfactory level: there seems to be a fine line between looking good and OHMYGODWHYWOULDITBENDLIKETHAT. So there's still a bit of stretching going on in certain animations, but overall I think I wouldn't be able to make it much better. I also created an alternative robe item using textures from another mod (but I do think it needs some tweaks) Naturally, I used the only unoccupied spot for the item (PMBJM) and created two quick items with descriptions. Those are, however, kind of uninspired so if you have any ideas, feel free to throw them in. Here's the cool part. I wanted this mod to feel complete and that couldn't be possible if there was no female version for this. So I went ahead and completely remodeled the robes to fit the base female body model from TSL in Blender. It was finicky, tedious and frustrating, because I suck. But I came through, as you can see: I haven't finished the skinning process for the female model yet. So that's it for now. I still don't quite know how to put these items into the world though, so I might need a bit of help on that matter further down the line. This is my very first attempt at modding and there has been a steeeep learning curve to get here. I should add that I have complete permissions from the original authors of those files, I can provide screenshots if requested. Oh and as the title suggests, I have a few other ideas for models once this will be done, but I prefer to focus on the task at hand for now.

    This article on Kotaku - How Knights Of The Old Republic Pulled Off A Voice-Acting Triumph - is well worth the read. I'll likely be picking up the book that the article is an excerpt from.

    In an attempt to save this mod... here are some REAL instructions It's actually very easy so don't freak out Let me start by saying, the file that he calls "Part 10" is actually named "TELOS Extract Manually". Yes, the one without all caps is part 10 1) First up, you will need a program that the author clearly believes everyone should know about for some reason... I certainly hadn't heard about it until now Called XnView. Download it from here https://www.xnview.com/en/ We won't use it 'til the later steps, we're just getting this out of the way now. Don't worry, it's less steps now than the initial instructions make it seem. I assume thats for an older version 2) Download all RARs from here 3) Extract the two RARs called "EXTRACT MANUALLY" and "TELOS Extract Manually" (this second one is "part10") and manually copy or move all their contents into KotOR II's "Override" folder Yes, we're doing part 10 out of order. It's easier for us this way as these are the only two folders out of the bunch that we can handle like this. This is only because the author obviously forgot to add it in the initial upload 4) Now, Extract the contents of parts 1 through to part 11 (with part 10 missing obviously as we've already done that) INTO A SINGLE FOLDER! What I mean by that is, don't just make a folder with the folders inside for "TELOS Part 1", "TELOS Part 2" etc. All the contents from each RAR need to be in the same single folder. Note: For some reason, when doing this, there was a file or two that needed to be overwritten. I'm assuming this due to some sort of update the author made 5) Now we're moving on to the XnView stuff. Open any one of the extracted files i this new folder we've made with XnView For me, it opened full screen for some reason so if that happens for you, just press escape. You should now see all the files in the folder in a viewing window within XnView 6) Select all the files by pressing Ctrl+A 7) With all files selected, go to Tools > Batch Convert 8 ) Set the output folder to KotOR II's "Override" folder and press "Convert" on the bottom right of the window DONE. Enjoy! Avs

    Yup, that's already finished and will be my next release. It's a simple fix and won't touch actual gui-files (haven't figured them out yet), so textlines still cover the view a bit. 😁

    This mod replaces the Jedi robes worn by the player and many NPCs with a more iconic, cloaked one based on a model from K2. I've made some fixes to the model and made new textures both to improve the quality and fit into the game more smoothly. There are two texture options: 100% Brown or Brown-Red-Blue. The Brown-Red-Blue textures maintain the color scheme of the K1 Jedi Robes. The 100% Brown textures look more like K2 textures, with different (brown) designs for the Jedi robes instead of different colors. Dark Jedi robes, of course, are always black. Both styles come with or without gloves for your player character. If you choose a gloveless option, your hands will be bare and match your usual skin tone. NPCs will still wear gloves. I've included most of these assets as a mod resource that can be found here.

    Good work, I would just like to point out one thing: "It's about the lines that reference that Kreia was there during Exiles trial, and more important that she was the one who asked for her/him to be exiled. Which doesn't fit at all, because she was presumed dead since Mandalorian Wars by the Jedi Order at that time, and becouse of that she couldn't have asked that of the Jedi Council when (as we see in dialogue between them near the end) they weren't even aware that she survived! This seems to be a remnant of some old plot version that was abandoned during the production." There are several scenes in the game, and I believe dialogue as well, starting the first time you visit the Polar Academy, where it is implied or stated that Kreia could 'erase' herself from peoples' perceptions if she didn't want them to know she was there, with some people not noticing her, or expressing surprise when she showed up, despite her being next to you the whole time. It's also heavily implied during the cut scene when she is spying on Disciple, and I believe outright stated when she confronts the Jedi Masters on Dantooine - all of whom are shocked to see her, even though she was with you for at least some of your meetings. Given that, it's perfectly plausible that she quietly manipulated the council way back when, without them knowing, and it would fit her character. In any case it's a minor note and since you can install individual components, doesn't affect the quality of the mod. 5 stars.

    Original Review on Filefront: "My my my, this is a unique mod we have today. Inyri gets definite kudos for thinking outside the box with it. In a time period where swords were brought back, why aren't there any shields? Pretty much every Sith or Republic trooper you runs into has a vibroblade on him, one would definitely come in handy. Well, now there are, and you'll get to use three different kinds of them. Stat-wise they're all useful, providing 15% resistance against melee damage and a +3 to defense. There's also some various attribute and Force-related bonuses that differ depending on the shield, but overall they're all about equally powerful so you can choose which one to use over simply aesthetics if you'd like. These items can also be found in-game on various planets, so now you won't have an excuse to cheat these onto your character while you're still on the Endar Spire. Remember to run the TSLPatcher once you've downloaded this, and enjoy! Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future. -Emperor Devon"

    It was (fortunately) somewhat less work than I feared. I was able to remap the Selkath body to a scaled up version of the Human rig (Selkath are freaking huge). I had to replace their giant hands with modified Human hands so they would animate properly with the new rig. I lopped off a couple of the fingers so it was the same configuration: I also got the UVs in the wrong spot, but that's easy enough to fix. Edit: Fixed, or at least approximated as close as possible based on a completely different unwrap: Here's some combat. I edited the UTCs to give them a mix of sabers and some appropriate melee feats like power attack, flurry, critical strike: The only real problem is their giant fish head is so enormous that they have a tendency to swing their weapons right through it. There's not much I can do about that. Here's some dialogue: Naturally using a completely different rig and supermodel, they no longer have the specific conversation animations of the regular Selkath, like the stroking of the mouth flap thing (cephalic lobes, if you want to get technical). The mouth is a bit stiff and flappy at the moment as it is only using head and jaw weights. I'll have to see if the original can be more closely mimicked by including some of the other face bones. The lobes no longer have bones and specific animations, so I was thinking maybe they could be cut off and changed to dangly meshes.

    Frequently Asked Questions What is the KotOR Toolset? The KotOR Toolset is the culmination of 8 months of work (started March 1st, 2015 and released the Public Beta December 25, 2015, with breaks in between) that started out as 15 minutes of planning. I hope that this toolset will one day replace KotOR Tool as the modding standard. What are the system requirements? That you have at least 500MB of RAM (I've seen it use up to 340MB myself) and at least one KotOR game installed on your computer. Beyond that, it's a pretty simple package: no 3D rendering, no texture-editing, and any necessary libraries are shipped with the tool. What makes it different from KotOR Tool? To be quite blunt about it, it's for newbs. Unlike KotOR Tool, the Toolset is centered around level-editing using a top-down display of the game's collision maps as the surface of the levels. The Toolset also has editors for almost every one of the games' formats (no models, textures, texture info, or path files), some of which were neglected or never done with KotOR Tool. Something else that's different is that the Toolset tries to teach you by explaining what most of the editable things in a file are, and giving examples of how it's used in-game. What inspired you to make this? Inspiration? I'd call it a prolonged bout of insanity! I was four days into a month-long break from modding and was going crazy, so over the span of 15 minutes, I thought of how I could render the collision maps and then use a bounding box to find the overall boundaries of the collision maps to get a good viewer for the levels. After that, everything just snowballed. With thanks from Malkior, I also was able to obtain a PDF manual on how to use the Neverwinter Nights 2 toolset, and drew inspiration from its layout and structure. What if my question isn't on here? Then I would ask that you PM me your question and I will do my best to add it here promptly.
