    Version 1.0


    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.

    Version 1.0


    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.

    Version 1.0.1


    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!

    This topic is designed to help you cope with transparency issues in certain droids, armors, as well as weapons in KotOR:TSL. The flaw is inherent in most laptop user’s gamplay, this is due to a insufficient VIDEO GRAPHICS CARD installed in the hardrive. This means that anything that is shiny or has a reflective surface will become clear and you will see right through them. Depending on how reflective the object is will determine how much of their actual form you will see, in short... On Laptops: more reflective = less solid. Other problems associated with the flaw are that you will not be able to see holograms or transmission in their regular translucent blue form; they will be solid and colored. Also, you will not be able to see active shields or the burst of speed effect, although they will be active, you will only see if they are working by the cyan arrows on your characters’ portraits. Another major drawback is you will never see from a camera / droid’s point of view (they are usually a hazy blue or red). The force sight ability will be also lost to you, meaning you will not be able to see a non playable character’s alignment (a shaded background with a bad red character, a good blue character, or a white neutral character). Unfortunately, if you have this dilemma you cannot upgrade your card because it is built into your particular model, and while you can change the card, it is highly recommended you do not, because you will need to take apart the laptop and remove the mother board in order to do so. You can also just buy a gaming laptop or a PC tower with the proper card installed, but chances are slim you want to spend that kind of money if only for this one game. This is a modder’s tip on how to inexpensively reduce the transparency issues only. I have chosen an HK-50 using a DC-15A Rifle mod as an example. If you have downloaded the ultimate appearance or just a particular reflective weapon mod, this will be much simpler, seeing as how I won’t go into how to extract the models, you’ll have to figure that out on your own. To edit the appearance you will need the GIMP painting program. NOTE: I must stress than you make duplicates of the files you plan to make changes to, in case you wish to undo the alterations. Once you have downloaded the GIMP program, go into the object’s destination folder and locate their .TGA file, it’s a good possibility that it will be easy to find, with the characters name in the title. After you have opened the .TGA, you will see the object’s skin on a flat 2d surface. From here, all you need to do is to click on the LAYERS tab on the top of the screen, and then again on the TRANSPARENCY tab, you must then select REMOVE ALPHA CHANNEL. This takes the checkerboard surface off the skin. Save the .TGA in the folder among the files it was originally found with. Enter your edited file, along with any other modifications you wish to go with the skin, into the OVERRIDE folder located within your KotOR:TSL destination folder, or just create one if not already there. NOTE: Please make sure your game is not active while doing this, as this may corrupt the system in unforeseen consequences. The scheme of the color and texture may seem unrealistic, even downgraded compared to other objects, but this is only in some cases, and most of the time the object will in fact look solid and well blended to the rest of the scene. The weapon and facial processes are exactly the same as the armor alterations, as I have already done the same steps with the rifle HK-50 is holding. Check your gameplay to view the results. Congratulations, you now have a solid character / weapon / armor for your laptop’s KotOR:TSL gameplay.

    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.

    FANTASTIC work my friend! I wasnt aware that it was possible to cancel out the huge filesize though. Btw, if going even further, the end-all-be-all would be a day night cycle simulated by linking different skyboxes to major events of the main quest...

    Version 1.1


    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.

    More progress: I was originally going to do Nar Shaddaa next but my idea of getting the buildings from SWTOR proved more complicated than expected/hoped. So instead I worked some more on Dxun. I remade big parts of its landscape, added bushes etc. There's still a lot to do but here's what I have: Then I also started working on Malachor. That one turned out really well so far. The clouds are still very much a placeholder but the terrain is pretty close to being done. The green glow on the ground comes from my attempts of having a low fog that's lit from below. That's partially working but the ground glowing green is an unintended sideeffect that's maybe impossible to get rid of. In that case I'll have to find another solution or just skip the green glow from below *insert spooky music here*

    You are absolutely right about that. The colours were still a bit off and Bioware's lighting on Taris is terrible^^ So I continued iterating over the lightmap for my 2d buildings and also the lightmaps for the 3d buildings to get everything to blend together. Once I was happy with that, I enabled all the clouds in TG and rendered the skybox again. That changed the lighting of the skybox so there was a mismatch once again. That meant tweaking the skybox lighting to get it closer to where it was before, followed by tweaking the lightmaps again. And finally, I rerendered the 2d buildings with more contrast and a better cubemap. Here's the result of all that: Much better if you ask me. What's left now is to rerender the cubemap (used both when rendering the backdrop buildings and ingame for reflections) at a higher resolution and then maybe do some additional tweaking. More importantly, I still need to do the same thing (changing all the lightmaps) for the Upper City South. But I'm getting there I also noticed that I had forgotten about one skybox when going through all the models and fixing them: Davik's Estate. That was changed and Davik has a nice view from his hangar now. I decided not to add additional backdrop buildings here since I figured that his estate was probably expensive and should thus stand a little more separated from the rest of the buildings.

    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.

    This mod is a small fix for a couple of wall panels in the entranceway of the Taris Upper City cantina. For some reason the mesh for this particular pair of panels was split off into a different model from the rest of the room. More importantly, it was assigned a lightmap that doesn't exist, thus it appears black in-game. To solve this, a duplicate of the adjoining panels was added to the entranceway room model in the appropriate position and the original mesh removed. To install, simply drop the MDL/MDX files into your Override. Compatibility: Won't be compatible with any other mods that edit those two room models, but the likelihood of that is low. Acknowledgements: Thanks to @bead-v for KOTORMax and MDLEdit Thanks to @ebmar for bringing the issue to my attention

    Amazing! At the first glance I hold off on using this mod because assuming I have Curtis 1973's "Stock Light Saber Retexture Pack" that do the magic already. And I proved wrong. This mod is awesome! I'm using those models inside this mod in conjunction with Curtis 1973's "Stock Light Saber Retexture Pack" and they work like they are the best pairing mods out there! Permanent spot in the Override folder has been filled. Nuff' said- Thank you VarsityPuppet and Fallen Guardian!
