    Hi folks! I've had a total modernization rework of KOTOR head models floating on my mind for years and thanks to the fantastic tools released on this site, I've been able to get a fully functioning prototype going with a few test cases. I'm starting this thread to document my progress with it and share with the community. First up, huge thanks to developers of KOTOR Tool, Kotormax and MDLops for making this possible. My goal is to build a universal head base that can be extrapolated to replace all the player and party head models with a much more modern standard - one that looks good, and is also very easy to adapt and modify. Hair will be handled as a separate mesh instead of something modeled as a fixed part of the head model, as is the solution in vanilla meshes, removing the need to do skinning cleanup for new heads. Texture layouts for heads are standardized as a result. Where I'm at right now: -New head geometry completed. -New teeth, tongue and eyes. -Eyelids are no longer separate geometry, instead the eyelid models have been converted to dummies and the eyelids on the head mesh are skinned to them, allowing for far more natural looking blinking. -Much more believable eyelashes have been integrated as a result. -Head is fully skinned for facial animation, though this is still a work in progress and needs a lot of testing and iteration. -Early tests for texturing and stylization are underway. First pass with vanilla eyelashes before I took the plunge to try the dummy skinning route, which ended up being a huge gamechanger. Skinned eyelids and eyelashes. Much more detailed teeth! Testing out eyelid skinning. To see how much I can get out of the new geometry I chose to start with a pretty major quick redesign of Juhani based on Cathar from SWTOR. If I have the stamina to see this project to full completion I'll probably also make a 'classic' version. This is probably going to be a pretty long project, but I'll try to keep updating once in a while. I plan to release a full resource pack of this even in the absence of a fully completed replacer mod. Thanks for stopping by! I'll be happy to answer any questions in the meantime.

    Hi everyone, I know it has been a long ..long time since I last posted here. I have been thinking about getting back into modding… Over the past few months I have been looking over the Revenge of Revan mod and seeing if I will return to it. Then came the new Kotor Level Editor (KLE).. which changed everything.. Also tweaked the story for the mod to help with the pacing. I decided to return to finish Revenge of Revan. The mod will be released in sections There will be no human VO till after the mod is fully complete. Using the KLE (Kotor level editor) to build the mod. Will be looking to build a team. I am looking for individuals to join the team - this would be for dialogue and quest writing. The writing team members will be using the dlgeditor. You will be adding your text in the dlg editor and once I have the file, I will add in the scripting to the dlg, for example jrl entries, LS/DS points, etc. If your interested in joining the writing team, send me a message 😃 Team members: Writer : N-DReW25 Art: Redrob41 Also included a video showing off the new kotor editor and showing how it will help in production.

    Hi everyone, I wanted to let you guys know we are hard at work on the mod. I have a tutorial video on the KLE ( kotor level editor ) , where I show you how I'm placing in npcs, the dlg and the animation. In the beginning of the video you will see the Hutt Lounge on Nar shaddaa fully populated and animated. The tutorial is for you guys to see the inner workings of building a mod like this. I hope the video is helpful for other modders, giving them a work flow using the KLE in their projects. Second tutorial video is on setting up a combat level using KLE and Fair Strides's NPC Auto-Leveller 1.0. Logan23

    HD PC Portraits for Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords v1.1 - 20200805 by ndix UR (DeadlyStream user) This modification adds high resolution (1K) portrait images for PCs. All 34 male and female vanilla player characters are provided, with all 3 light-dark variants, for a total of 102 new portraits. The 1K portraits have 64x the resolution of the 128x128 originals. The portraits are rendered to match the poses, colors, facial expressions, and lighting of the original images as closely as possible given the following constraints: Only vanilla textures (and my own additional maps based on same) are used While the textures are mostly crap, most of the work was in material setupusing a modern rendering engine, so even the vanilla textures still wind up looking much better than they have any right to. This is because of real lights, shading, and materials, of which the original diffuse textures are only a part. I didn't really redo geometry, beyond appropriate use of subdivision surface modifiers. See the included images in preview/ for an idea of how the portraits look.

    *********************************** Knights of the Old Republic *********************************** TITLE: A Crashed Republic Cruiser on a Nameless World AUTHOR: LDR FILENAME: ldr_repshipunknownworld FILESIZE: 176 MB -------------------------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------- There are 2 available methods of installing A Crashed Republic Cruiser on a Nameless World. The standard installation method is done entirely though TSL Patcher, and doesn’t require you to do anything beyond simple button clicking. The manual installation is for those unable, for whatever reason, to use TSL Patcher, and involves the copying and pasting of files from folder to folder. NOTE: With the standard installation method, this mod is far more likely to work alongside any other mods you may currently have installed, which may not be the case should you use the manual installation method. I have attempted naming files in a way where there should be a minimum chance of mod conflicts, but you never know. This mod also contains an "Optional" folder meant to use in conjuction with either/both of SithSpecter's High Quality Blasters and Colored Loadscreens mods. To uninstall, remove the files from their respective folders in the SWKotOR directory. ------------------------------ » STANDARD INSTALLATION ------------------------------ 1) Double click TSLPatcher.exe. 2) Click the "Install Mod" button and select your SWKotOR game directory. 3) Sit back, relax, and wait for the installation to complete. ------------------------------ » MANUAL INSTALLATION ------------------------------ 1) Open up the tslpatchdata folder. 2) Copy all files with a .wav extension and paste into the streamwaves folder located in your SWKotOR directory. 3) Copy all files with a .mod extension and paste into the modules folder located in your SWKotOR directory. 4) Copy everything else (With exception to changes.ini and info.rtf) and paste into the override folder located in your SWKotOR directory (If there isn't one, create one). ------------------------------ » OPTIONAL INSTALLATION ------------------------------ If you wish to utilize any of the files in the "Optional" folder, simply copy and paste all the files into the override folder in your SWKotOR directory. (This is only recommended if you already have both of SithSpecter's mods installed for consistency's sake). --------------- Mod Permissions --------------- You may not use any assets of this mod in your own mod without first contacting me. ------------ DESCRIPTION ------------ This mod adds 6 new modules, 9 new items (3 equippable inventory, 4 datapads, 2 keycards) on the Unknown World, making the crashed Hammerhead explorable. You must have a save before setting foot on the Unknown World. ----- BUGS ----- Any mods that modify the unk_m41aa OnEnter script will be incompatible with this mod. "Frame Buffer Effects" turned off in the swkotor.ini results in audio logs without the blue camera effect. If you find any please post them in the comments or send me a direct message. I will address them as soon as I can. ------------------- » MODULE/ITEM NAMES ------------------- For this to work correctly in conjunction with your own mod, you must not use any within the following list as names for your custom module/item reskins. m41ae m41af 152unk 153unk m41ai m41aj LHC LHW Blaster Pistol template 020 Forearm Band template 019 Gauntlet template 019 ------------- Voice Acting ------------- DarthTyren as Medical Officer Audio Log Mellowtron11 as Engine Officer Audio Log Sith Holocron as Republic Captain Audio Log Zhaboka as Kolgrim ----------- Permissions ----------- Permission granted from Darth InSidious to use his alternative beach Hammerhead textures. Permission granted from DarthParametric to utilize his edited mdls from both his Endar Spire and Harbinger Hull Repair mods. Permission granted from SithSpecter to utilize integration for his High Quality Blasters for Modders resource and colored loadscreen templates mod. Permission granted from Thor110 to repurpose his ported K1 Harbinger modules. ------- Credits ------- - To the people who created the tools which have allowed me to create this mod. - Kotor Tool..........................Fred Tetra - K-GFF GFF Editor/DLGEditor..........tk102 - ERF Editor/TSLPatcher...............stoffe - MDLOps..............................cchargin/JDNoa - Lipsynch Editor.....................JDNoa - XVI32 Hex Editor....................Chmaas - CSLU Toolkit........................Oregon Health & Science University My beta testers: djh269, jc2, N-DReW25 and Zhaboka.

    HD NPC Portraits for Knights of the Old Republic 2 - The Sith Lords v1.1 - 20201004 - by ndix UR (DeadlyStream user) This modification adds 30 high resolution (1K) portrait images for NPCs. The 1K portraits have 64x the resolution of the 128x128 originals. The portraits are rendered to match the poses, colors, and lighting of the original images as closely as possible given the following constraints: Only vanilla textures (and my own additional maps based on same) are used While the textures are mostly crap, most of the work was in material setup using a modern rendering engine, so even the vanilla textures still wind up looking much better than they have any right to. This is because of real lights, shading, and materials, of which the original diffuse textures are only a part. I didn't really redo geometry, beyond appropriate use of edge split and subdivision surface modifiers. I did some amount of normalizing the gradients behind the characters. I think Disciple and Mira are the only ones with non-standard background gradients now. This package includes portrait for HK-50 and HK-51 units. They aren't used in any existing mods I'm aware of; I just put them in because they made sense to have. You can remove them if you wish. The Atris portrait is unused in the vanilla game but may be used by playable Atris mods. I only included it because it existed in the vanilla assets.

    Even if it's rapidly decaying, there would still be normal street traffic of people driving to work or something. But I will add far less traffic than on Coruscant or Nar Shaddaa the latter of which you can see in this video btw:

    After looking around on the forums, I realized that editing the GUI of KotOR (and possibly TSL) is quite painful and most people use K-GFF (very great tool, but not visual). I then found xoreos-tools (part of xoreos - a very cool open source project). So this weekend, I started up making my own version of a tool which should help a lot with the process of laying out things nicely. The project is not fully complete, but it is ready for some beta testing! A few features so far - Visual display of all images (I think) + bounding boxes - Supports drag + drop / resize - Nested view for only what you care about (cleaner than K-GFF) - Cross-platform - works on linux / windows / mac (with caveats) - Light / Dark Mode for all of you who look at too many bright things (like I do) Getting Started Guide: https://github.com/amcolash/kotor-gui-editor/blob/master/README.md Release Page: https://github.com/amcolash/kotor-gui-editor/releases Source Code: https://github.com/amcolash/kotor-gui-editor Changelog 0.0.4 (9/17/2020): First Public Release

    I'm currently working on the turret minigame in KotOR I. My goals in order of priority are: Make the game more challenging Scale the challenge of the minigame with your difficulty setting Improve graphics, effects, and audio Diverse enemy types Remove "random" encounters and make it so the battles occur: Once when leaving Taris Once when arriving per planet Once when leaving per planet Once when escaping the Leviathan Once when approaching the Star Forge Optional challenges Unique stages - not always be six interceptors flying the same loops around you, but different numbers and types of ship, different skybox and eyecandy, different movement for the Ebon Hawk, different objectives (escape, survive, destroy x many fighters in a certain amount of time) Persistent health - don't take too much damage, or it will be there next time you fight! You must go to a specific location to receive ship repairs, or leverage your own (or companions) repair skill to "heal" the ship Experience gains for destroying fighters A questline with T3-M4 that allows you to upgrade the ship's health A vendor to install more powerful and unique-looking turrets on your ship While all of these goals are achievable based on what I've observed by going over the data, I know that it's easy to over-promise and under-deliver. Therefore these are mentioned as "possibles". Those in bold above are almost complete. I mention the other goals because I'd like to describe how these could be achieved if my other commitments make it impossible for me. So, I will go over the more ambitious goals in case future modders are interested in how to implement the changes. Remove "random" encounters and make it so unique battles occur This one is pretty easy. At the moment all minigame encounters use exactly the same module: M12ab. Even the battle that occurs over Taris, with it's unique skybox and background Leviathan is still just M12ab. What is actually happening is some scripting that occurs when the encounter is being loaded. When going in to the minigame, KotOR is evaluating your global variables to determine what skybox and audio cues to use (or in the case of the HK-47 practice, whether to apply the holographic visual effect) - in the case of the Taris escape, an animation is actually playing on a loop around you that gives the appearance of the starfield, Taris in the distance, and the Leviathan hovering nearby. This animation can be found in m12ab_01a.mdl/mdx. I've cut out a section of the animation to show you the awesome model that comes in the mdl: In order to create unique encounters, my thoughts are to either create new modules from copies of M12ab, or to use expanded scripting to make the existing module more flexible. I haven't yet tried duplicating the module and seeing how it would effect things, but that's next on my list. If you wanted to go very basic though, you could just use MDLedit to modify m12ab_01a.mdl, and change the LSP_planettari01 texture mentioned in it to some other planet texture. I'm completely new to modelling and haven't animated a thing, so just how far I am able to go with this and how much I can learn is anyone's guess. However if there are any talented animators out there who wanted to create a unique animation for a space battle encounter that takes place prior to boarding the Star Forge, you can find an *awesome* Hammerhead model from KotOR II in 104PERg.mdl: Unique Stages This would come down to scripting. It's possible to decompile all scripts apart from the heatbeat script (thanks to Thor110 for decompiling all the others). Inside the scripts, you can play around a lot with when the encounter ends and under what conditions. Even in the M12ab.are file, it is possible to do a lot with the nature of the encounter. To give you some examples of what is definitely possible: Spawn fewer enemy fighters - this is a simple matter of deleting the enemy structures in the .are: Make the Ebon Hawk fly around - this can be done by changing the track listed under the player structure. You could "hijack" the track of an enemy structure, or create your own custom one in Blender. I've had an absolute blast give the Hawk the m12ab_mgt06 track, making it progress at 1/4 speed, and playing the turret game in a moving ship, with interceptors flying all around me Make the enemies faster This can be done by editing the enemy tracks in blender - just shrink down the animation to play over a fewer number of frames. At the moment, the interceptors in my modded game are flying around 33% faster, and boy oh boy does it make the game better GIve enemies more hp, more powerful weapons, more rapid-firing weapons, or unique models Again, just a matter of making changes to the .are. At the moment, I have 4 normal fighters and 2 "elite" fighters that are colored the same red as the Sith heavy troopers. The elite fighters absolutely rip you apart - they deal +33% damage, fire twice as fast, and have double the hp, so I'm having to actually think in the game and prioritise targets. Make the enemies chase you while the Ebon Hawk performs evasive manoeuvres This is just a matter of editing those tracks. I'm no animator/modeller but this would appear to be the most achievable change to make to the game even as an amateur (though it does require that unique copies of M12ab can be created and function, something I have not tested). What you could do for example is create a simple track that would float up and down and side to side, then copy that and move the track back and to the side by a certain distance, maybe give it an additional keyframe at the start so that it gives the illusion of following your ship movement rather than mirroring it. Naturally if the interceptors were behind you the whole time they would rip you to pieces - at this point I am playing around with the possibility of scripting to adjust the frequency of their shots. Inaccuracy is a good variable to adjust - it is a percentage chance to miss you, so this would make prolonged fire from interceptors survivable. Rate of fire is another that would work in this type of situation, it is something like number of shots per second - however in a tail pursuit this may make the fighters shooting you seem a bit odd if they are either constantly rapid-firing or firing on a precision perfect shoot-wait x seconds-shoot-wait x seconds pattern. There's a lot more I want to say about modding this minigame but I've just looked at the clock so it will have to wait. Suffice to say that there is a LOT of unused potential in KotOR from this game, that was very likely left on the wayside by BioWare due to time constraints.

    Ive taken a break from modding for couple month to keep things fresh, however, there have been improvements for K2 that ive not shown yet. A lot of research regarding a noise - friendly Implementation of reflective surfaces has been done - now the "shinyness" of textures is not "in your face" anymore like in the k1 complete overhaul series but depending on the surface itself - e.g. shine on brushed metal spots that are visible through a worn, rusty texture can now be selected easily in most complex patterns & appearances. Secondly, with that development added to the repertoire i redid Peragus completely and applying the method to places like Nar Shaddaa as well. Due to model editing every area looks different but planetwise conform. I try also to maintain the original games color scheme when possible: Some screens from the reworked Peragus: New "Mustafar" wall concept: Nar Shaddaa is also receiving treatment: Before: after: New console: Before: After: Tell me what you think, also about the Peragus "Mustafar" walls.

    Thanks for all the comments everyone. I think I will go with style 1 so that the screenshot page does not become a chaotic blinking mess. However, I will also provide a link to some sort of comparison that allows a manual switch between the two shots. And there will of course also be normal screenshots without any comparison that show the new skyboxes in full. Apart from that I've been making good progress. The main Telos render is now finally done and I'm also making progress verifying that everything is working as intended.

    After a long fight against the Korriban wastes module I finally finished the last BoSSR skybox: That leaves two mod skyboxes to do. I think those shouldn't take long but then again I thought the same of the skybox above... I'll keep you updated. In the meantime I also changed my mind and added some traffic to all Coruscant skyboxes: I'll do the same for Nar Shaddaa and probably Taris as well to better sell the cityscape of those planets.

    Greetings, I'd like to share with you the project I've been working on since summer 2020. Some of you may already have heard of it, as the development was public from the beginning. reone is an open source reimplementation of the KotOR engine, similar to xoreos and KotOR.js, but with a number of key differences. It is developed with extensibility in mind, meaning that modding capabilities it aims to provide are on a whole other level compared to the vanilla engine. For example, the graphics have already been significantly improved with the addition of physically based rendering. Current state of the project is such that the most fundamental engine subsystems are either complete or at least partially implemented, i.e. resource management, rendering, audio, GUI, scripting, conversations, combat and more. Given the current pace of development, I intend to finish the project by the end of 2021. My short term goal is to make the first Endar Spire module fully completable - a milestone, that will hoperfully bring more attention to the engine. Technologically, reone is a custom engine based on SDL 2 and OpenGL 3.3, written in C++14. This alone makes it highly portable - reone is believed to be working on Windows, Linux and Mac OS. Some background on myself: I'm a professional software developer from Russia and a prior contibutor to the xoreos project, responsible for most of its recent progress on KotOR.

    If you update from version 1.0.x to 1.1 make sure to read the special instructions in the read-me! In order to update to 1.1.1 from any previous version, delete all 306nara.wok, 306narb.wok and 306nard.wok from your Override folder. If you had version 1.1 installed there is no need for anything else, otherwise follow the instructions in the read-me. ABOUT: This mod replaces every skybox and every planetary backdrop in the game with a new high resolution version made from scratch. This includes a replacement of every skybox model to fix all the glaring issues with the original. There are also some additional minor changes that either fix issues with the vanilla environments or serve to better blend ingame terrain and skybox. Other than that I recommend you just check out the screenshots as pictures say more than a thousand words or check the video to see the animated skyboxes. Click the following image to see additional interactive screenshot comparisons: There are also add-ons with new skyboxes for the following mods: M4-78 Enhancement Project Coruscant - Jedi Temple If you find any issues or have any other comments, please let me know and I'll see what can be done. INSTALLATION: For installation instructions check the read-me files of the individual downloads. You either have to run an installer or just drop files into your Override folder. For the mod to take full effect you need a savegame where you have not yet left Citadel Station. If you update from version 1.0.x to 1.1 make sure to read the special instructions. I also highly recommend to install the fog fix if you are using the latest Steam patch. COMPABILITY: This mod is not compatible with any mod that edits skyboxes in any way. This includes mods that only edit their models. There might also be rare incompabilities with mods that edit non-skybox area models if those models are also edited by this mod. PERMISSIONS: You may NOT redistribute any textures included in this archive without my explicit permission. You may however use all the models as long as you give me credit.

    This mod replaces the 2D billboard holograms used in the Twisted Rancor Trio puzzle in the Taris Lower City Apartments with full 3D holograms, coloured blue like in the movies (and TSL). Also fixes some missing sound effects that were intended to play when activating each hologram. You may also be interested in my Movie-Style Rakatan Holograms and Movie-Style Holograms for Endgame Cutscenes mods. Changes: Replaces Bith 2D sprite with four separate animated 3D Bith models, each with a different instrument Replaces singer 2D sprite with animated 3D model (two different anims) with semi-custom texture to look like the original Adds emitter VFX Only switch emitter light on when activated instead of always on Repairs broken activation sound effects Known Issues: Because meshes do not self-occlude, there are some artefacts when viewing from certain angles. Requires a save before entering the Taris Lower City Apartments (East) for the first time due to GIT changes. Acknowledgements: Thanks to @bead-v for KOTORMax and MDLEdit Thanks to @ndix UR for TGA2TPC Thanks to @CarthOnasty for the original idea, which I shamelessly stole (I did wait 2 years though)

    I just completed the last render for this project. Everything is now done! That does not mean the mod(s) will release today or even tomorrow or this week though. I still need to build the mod archives and installers, verify that everything is working as intended and make screenshots etc. None of that should take too long now that the bulk of the work is finally finished but I won't give a release date. It should be soon though. In the meantime, here's a screenshot of the last skybox I finished. It's for the Green Grass for Dantooine mod.

    Haven't posted here for a while, time for an update. Regarding my Ahsoka Tano mod I've posted about a few months ago, progress is good. The head is complete and working well in-game. I've also worked on her outfit of the S7 finale. While it is well under way, I need to finish painting the textures before moving on to skinning the model. Since the oufit seems to bear Mandalorian patterns, I think I'll make the outfit available in-game (probably technically working as a disguise) as a reward for completing the hand-to-hand combat challenge in the Mandalorian camp on Dxun or something like that. I don't want to release the head separately and then go back to update the file to include the outfit, but I'll drop a "beta" version of the mod containing just the head here. Feel free to report any bugs on this thread or by DM. Moving on, the other day I've posted a pic of a WIP model I'm working on. The idea behind it is to create all new models that'd replace the boring default commoner clothing for the PC. I'll create upgradable items with interesting stats to give the user an incentive to actually use the new clothing other than just the new aesthetic. While I've teased the male model the other day, the female version is actually pretty much done. I've literally spent dozens of hours working, scrapping and recreating the damn thing, but I've now come to something I'm very happy with. And here it is. But wait, you might be wondering.. ..and yes it do! Next step, finishing the male model! Ahsoka_beta.zip

    Hi everyone I know a few of you have been asking about the status of the KotOR Level Editor (KLE) project. I'm happy to announce that it's finally ready for a (very early alpha) release. I've made the KotOR Level Editor GitHub page public - please remember it's in early alpha. That said, hope some of you find it useful Find the repo at https://github.com/lachjames/NorthernLights/ My goal is to post this to DeadlyStream in the near future, but for now you'll need to download and install it via GitHub. If you'd like to try it out, please follow the instructions on the linked GitHub page's README. Feel free to DM me, reply to this post, add an issue, etc. if you have issues. For those who are new to KLE, you can find an introductory video listing the features of KLE on YouTube (included below). There is also a (work in progress) KLE guide, as well as a general KotOR/TSL modding guide, at https://github.com/lachjames/KotOR-Modding-Guide Thanks everyone for your help - hopefully this is just a taste of what is to come regarding both KLE and the Northern Lights project in general - with the amount of support I've received so far from you all, there is no doubt in my mind that this is the case.

    Big guns: I had to do an update for my Harbinger Hull Fixes mod. While I was at it, I figured I should probably address something that has always bothered me. So I hacked up the Harbinger's exterior model, made some new gun meshes, and plonked it on top of the bridge. And since the bridge is just a reskin of the Endar Spire's bridge, it will also slot straight into K1. I think I might add some actual mesh frames to the glass as well, give those dirt stains something to actually accumulate around. One drawback is that the guns now almost completely block the docking collar which I added previously. Oh well.

    I stepped away from my machinima for a bit to fulfill DP's request. It was easy peasy using the mapper function that KotorMax has, I just had to adjust some things and deal with some controller errors but this is what I got: -Both throwing grenade animations: -Using shields: At first I tried naming them cthrowgren/cthrowgren1 or throwgren/throwgren1 but they didn't play so I had to do the same as Selkath and convert the model to an F type. Then I renamed the rest of the animations to their humanoid counterparts. Let me know if they are any good and I'll submit them to the download section.

    Since TOR released a set of the Star Forge robes not too long back, I figured it might be a useful basis for a hybrid version with the vanilla cape and loincloth (the TOR version is only painted on) married to SS's flowing robes animations. At this point I've done the initial import, scale, and pose, and am now ready for the transfer to the KOTOR rig. Thanks to the Blender I/O script, I was also able to bake out the tinted textures, which is much easier than trying to approximate it manually as I have had to do in the past. Here's where it's at currently: I still need to fiddle with a few bits and pieces, and there will no doubt be plenty of tweaking to do once the rig transfer is done and I can test out animations. I also have some folded down hoods taken from other sets that I will try to marry to this torso for a hoodless/maskless version. But that will require a fair bit of massaging to get them to fit, so I'm saving that for later. Still not sure about the cape. I think having it white as well would be a bit too overpowering, but I'm not entirely sold on the brown. And I haven't done anything for the DS black version as yet. Since there's no TOR version of that colour scheme for this set, I'll have to cobble something together myself.

    ======================================================== KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II SOURCE FILE ======================================================== New_Lightsaber_Blade_Model_TSL_v1 ================================= Author: Crazy34 Contact: PM me on Deadlystream For: TSL Date: 03/02/2021 ================================= DESCRIPTION: The vanilla lightsaber blades in Kotor and TSL look bad in my opinion. So, I tried to improve them by adding a dynamic ambient light to the blade (environmental lightning), which works quite well. Since this is hard-coded in the model I also optimized the blade plane models to have a different UV layout inspired by Sithspecter's work. I also simplified their geometry and fixed the different brightness bug (different brightness of the blade when viewed from the front compared to the back). Additionally, I included 3D models for the core of the blade and the inner glow of the blade, which can now be used to create black core sabers as seen in SWTOR. The glow - as well as the models - are fully animated to work as the vanilla blades. The hilts are updated together with the blades including hilts from Kaidon Jorn's SLM 2.0 mod. Summary: - All saber hilts are updated with hilts from Kaidon Jorn SLM 2.0 mod (I love it!) All credits for the hilt models, textures and icons go fully to him! - Ambient light for lightsabers - 3D models for blade core and inner glow - Symmetric lightsaber blade planes with a modified version of Sithspecter's crossguard saber UV layout. (Compatible with his unstable textures also included with all credits going to Sithspecter.) - Black core sabers are possible - Homogeneous brightness of the blade (no more “brighter blades when viewed from the front” happening any more) - All sabers are fully upgradeable (added black core and unstable crystals as well as crossguard versions of them) How to use the new lightsabers: Get the black core, unstable and crossguard sabers or crystals by cheating them by using the giveitem command or use KSE to include them in your inventory. The item codes are organized as follows: Lightsaber and crystal follow the standard naming scheme: Black core: 51-60 Unstable: 21-30 Crossguard: 101-110 Crossguard, black core: 111-120 Crossguard, unstable: 91-100 For example: giveitem u_l_colo_51 (Blue, Black core crystal) giveitem u_l_colo_92 (Red, unstable crossguard crystal) giveitem g_w_lghtsbr118 (Viridian, crossguard unstable lightsaber) giveitem g_w_dblsbr025 (Purple, unstable double blade lightsaber) giveitem g_w_shortsbr53 (Green, black core short lightsaber) !!!! Important: If you put a crossguard crystal in either a short lightsaber or double blade lightsaber the crystal will be transformed into its normal non crossguard version! I HOPE that in the future some talented texture artist will create better looking blade textures using these new blade models. I plan to upload a Modders Resource explaining the blade system in detail. CREDITS: Kaidon Jorn: Lightsaber Hilts models and textures and icons are created by Kaidon Jorn and taken from his SLM 2.0 mod, which you can find here: https://deadlystream.com/files/file/551-schematic-lightsaber-mod-slm/ Thank you very much for the permission to use your models and hilts here. They are amazing and I enjoyed working with them. Sithspecter: The new layout for the lightsaber blades plane models are inspired by Sithspecter's animated Crossguard Lightsabers mod for KOTOR which can be found here: https://deadlystream.com/files/file/1314-crossguard-lightsabers/ Thank you very much for the permission to include your animated unstable blade texture and to modified them to include the new TSL colors. ___________________________________________________________ COMPATIBILITY: It should pretty much be compatible with any mod that doesn't use the same crystal and lightsaber model slots. This mod should be compatible with TSLRCM. However, please notify me in the release thread if any bugs do appear that are not listed below. ___________________________________________________________ INSTALLATION: Use the TSLPatcher multiple times. You can choose which lightsabers you want. So, for example say you are only interested in the normal saber update and the related crossguard sabers: Then install the standard saber first and second run the TSLpatcher again and install the crossguard sabers. The crossguard sabers require to have their related non-crossguard sabers installed first. The TSLPatcher is set up to only install a certain part of the mod and requires multiple runs to install all sabers. It should install everything correctly. UNINSTALL: Navigate to the backup folder and place the contents into the Override folder. Remove all files from the tslpatchdata folder of this mod from your override folder. ___________________________________________________________ BUGS: The tip of the blade has a spike which comes from a deformation of the lightsaber planes. This is also present in the original model. I was not able to find a fix. (Sorry about that.) The lightsaber hilts will clip through the blades. (Unfortunately, DarthParametric has said that it is not possible to fix this.) ___________________________________________________________ PERMISSIONS: You may use this mod as you see fit. Display it in screenshots, make it compatible with your mod. However, do please give credit where it's due, and DO NOT release it with any of your mods without my permission. If you have any ideas for improvements, or if you want to you can mod them yourselves and include them in the mod. Saves me time and I'll give you credit for what I put in. ___________________________________________________________ THANKS: Fred Tetra: All the thanks for KotOR Tool. TK102: All the thanks for K-GFF. ndix UR: All the thanks for the kotorblender plugin, which I used to create the blade 3d models. bead-v: All the thanks for Mdledit and constantly updating it. Without it this mod would not be possible. Thanks also for the comments on the ascii code. Kaidon Jorn: All the thanks for giving me the permission for using the hilts textures and icons. With these included this is a real mod. Thank you so much. Sithspecter: All the thanks for giving me the permission to include his animated blade textures and to modify them. Also i want to thank you for inspiring me to start modding KOTOR in the first place. Jorak Uln: All the thanks for the constant feedback, suggestions and beta testing of the preliminary versions of the mod. JCarter426: I want to thank him for providing information regarding lights in KOTOR and the documentation. DarthParametric: I want to thank him for answering all my questions and being so helpful when creating and tuning of the models. Sith Holocron: For minor proofreading of the mod documents. For the initial feedback on the ambient light, I want to thank: DarthVarkor, Stormie97, ebmar. Also, I want to thank all the modders out there whose work I've consistently studied and learned from. ___________________________________________________________ LEGAL: THIS MODIFICATION IS PROVIDED AS-IS AND IS NOT SUPPORTED BY BIOWARE/OBSIDIAN ENTERTAINMENT, LUCASARTS, DISNEY OR ANY LICENSERS/SPONSORS OF THE MENTIONED COMPANIES.

    Hi All - With all the rumors of a new KoTOR coming out, Deadlystream is in great need of a new theme for Deadlystream and a new Logo/Banner. What I am looking for is someone to do what is outlined below, this would be a paid project and anyone who can show some previous work is free to apply. I am particularly hoping someone from the community would like to do this work, as I believe someone with a passion for KoTOR and Star Wars would be better suited for this. This could all be done by one person or if you would prefer to do just the theme or just the logo that works too. Theme - Build a wireframe and/or a psd of a new theme for Deadlystream Design new icons for Deadlystream forums New design for the Forum section of Deadlystream New design for a News Section of Deadlystream New design for the download section of Deadlystream New design for the Gallery Section of Deadlystream Logo and Banner - New Logo that includes Deadlystream in the name New Banner that is Star Wars / KoTOR theme'd Logo can be layered over banner, and will be used at the header of Deadlystream Please reach out to me via PM if you are interested. Thank You, Tyvokka

    I've always been a little bothered by the sith war sword being a reskinned version of the vibro double-blade, so I'm working on an alternate model for it. :: UPDATE :: 11/22/2020 Still working on this, I've been getting sidetracked with other projects.

    Thank you all for the kind words! I'm glad you like these. I have since finished Yavin 4 and I'm really happy with the result: It's slightly less of a jungle than what we see in the movies so that it blends better with the modules usd in the mod. But I think that works really well too, so I'm fine with it. Now onto the last completely new skybox I want to create: Ord Mantell

    Things are getting pretty weird around here. BTW, if you have saves for M4-78 EP, I'd like to have them. Please note whether you used version 1.2, 1.3 (Steam), or 1.5. Also list which mods you used as well (with links). Finally, did you have a LS or DS gameplay-through. Thanks. I'd post this in the Game Saves section but let's be honest, - most people don't check that section.

    There is no irradiated skybox in the original M4-78 but I changed the models so that there is now. And yes, it will change once the radiation is cleared. Sure thing. Here's an example. You can also see some more screenshots in other posts I made over the last months or so. As to the questions of why I'm not releasing K1 yet. There's no specific reason for why I want to release them simultaneously, but that's the route I want to go. One reason is that I still need to make screenshots and stuff like that that will take some time and I'd rather focus on getting all skyboxes done first before I go down this rabbithole so that I can then make all screenshots for both games at the same time. Depending on how long finishing TSL takes I might decide to release K1 earlier but not before I've finished the add-ons like BOS:SR and I haven't even started those. With the exception of Taris that I mentioned before, they shouldn't take too long though. I'll keep you guys posted. We'll see how it goes. Rest assured though, it won't be long now (at least compared to the 3+ years this project has been in the work now... )

    View File Larger Text Fonts for KOTOR 1! Have you tried playing KOTOR 1 at any resolution above 1080p? Then you have surely noticed that the text and font do NOT scale with higher resolution! As a result, text can look embarassingly small in the menu, dialogue, and HUD. Fortunately, this mod contains many sorts of font files that the game can use, sorted by size! Now you can play KOTOR in 4k resolution without needing to squint to see important text. These fonts were NOT my creation, they were found and extracted from the Russian version of the game which inexplicably has larger fonts with a variety of sizes (on top of being able to work in English as well). Hopefully everyone who wishes to play KOTOR in high resolution will get to have a more enjoyable experience, and one of the more common problems facing the community can be properly addressed. WARNING: This is NOT compatible with KOTOR 2 TSL. This only exclusively works with K1. As far as I know, there are no compatibility issues with other mods. However if you come across any errors or something that is not working as intended, please let me know here or via my Discord: Xela#6419 Submitter sovietshipgirl Submitted 05/19/2021 Category Knights of The Old Republic

    When fading, a portion of the screen fades out of sync with the rest of the screen while using widescreen resolutions. This is a simple fix to solve that issue. To use: 1. Download 2. Move the file from the folder that corresponds to your display resolution into your override folder.

    I've recently been able to do some work on combat animations. For a while now I've been trying to understand how the "fancy" melee on melee combat animations are triggered. This took me a while to figure out because I thought they were controlled by the combatanimations.2da. It appears that all other attacks are handled there except for this particular scenario. I believe this was hardcoded to act this way in the original game, and that is why they are not present in the combatanimations.2da. If the attacking creature is using a basic melee attack, and the target creature is using a melee weapon, and they are both directly attacking each other. Then the attacker and target uses a variation of c*a*, c*d*, and c*p* depending on if they were hit or parried. c*a1, c*a2, c*a3, c*a4, and c*a5 are for attacking (Attack Animation) c*d1, c*d2, c*d3, c*d4, and c*d5 are for damaged (Target Response Animation) c*p1, c*p2, c*p3, c*p4, and c*p5 are for parrying (Target Response Animation) When the attack is queued up a random number is rolled returning 1,2,3,4, or 5 and then proper attack animation is then chosen. Once the attack result is calculated the appropriate response animation is chosen for the target. Example Scenario: So if the the attacker is using a single one handed weapon, and the basic attack random animation number is 4, then the attacker will use the animation c2a4. If the attack hits, the target will use c2d4. If the attack misses, the target will use c2p4. Note: If you are confused by the naming convention for combat animation be sure to check out this post: (Analysis of the Combat Animations) by @JCarter426. Here is a video demonstration of it in action.

    This mod adds a Pureblood Sith head and underwear model from The Old Republic MMO, ported to K1 as a selectable player head for female characters. A few notes: A unique underwear model is included, but because of the different way TOR and KOTOR mate heads to bodies, I had to add a neck stump to the torso to elevate the head to the right height. That makes for a pretty nasty transition at the seam line, but it should mostly only be visible in dialogue. Try not to have too many conversations while naked I guess. By default, the underwear is a sports bra and panties. For those wanting something a little more chaste, there’s an alternative modesty patch that provides a pair of shorts/hot pants instead. After running this installer, simply copy and paste the TPCs from the OPTIONAL folder to your Override folder, overwriting when prompted. Odyssey’s lack of proper specularity, much less the advanced (by comparison) graphical features of TOR, means you should expect that the textures will look pretty flat in KOTOR compared to how the originals look in TOR. KOTOR has a maximum bone limit per mesh of 17. This creates a problem for TOR meshes, as adding the eyelids to the face bone array pushes that to 18. I had to drop 2 bones to make it work. I chose the two nose corner bones, as they seemed the least important. I don't know what effect this may have on various facial animations, but probably nothing significant for mute player characters. Differences between how TOR and KOTOR handle animations mean that some of the bone weights are probably too strong, so expect some bad deformation occasionally. Especially when the game uses stunt animations in certain cutscenes. An example of this is the opening cutscene on the Endar Spire, where the eyelashes and eyebrows get a bit carried away. If you notice anything particularly egregious, post a comment with some notes of the specifics and a screenshot/video and I'll see if it can be mitigated. Dark Side transitions are included, but they are relatively mild. I'm not a big fan of the zombie look.

    It's been a while since the last update but progress has been going well. The main thing still left is to render all the skyboxes. There are not many left but Telos is currently taking a long time (200+ render hours already and not done yet). After that the rest should be much faster though. And I also started assembling and collecting the final files for the releases as well as checking all modules again to see if there are any issues that need fixing. At the same time I prepared the screenshots for all locations. This also includes comparison screenshots and that's where this post comes in. I could use some opinions on which type of comparison you prepare, so here is the same scene in three different comparison style. I do have a pretty clear favorite but I'm still open about changing my mind. Style 1: Style 2: Style 3: Let me know what you think!
