    Version 1.1


    Security spikes are disposable items that give the player a temporary boost to their Security skill when activated, helping them pick more difficult locks. At least, that's how it's supposed to be. That's how they work on the Xbox version, and in KOTOR 2, but security spikes don't actually do anything at all on the PC version of KOTOR 1. The cause seems to be some sort of bug in the GUI that prevents security spikes from ever appearing in their intended slot. So when interacting with a door, there isn't an option to scroll from the Security skill to security spikes, as there is in KOTOR 2. The GUI was changed for the port from Xbox to PC, and security spikes probably got left out due to oversight. I couldn't find any way to resolve the issue, though, so I came up with two alternative options. Option A Option A replicates the security spikes' intended function as best as I could manage. They’ve been given an activate item property and appear in the non-medical item slot (along with stimulants and shields). When a character activates a security spike, they receive a temporary boost to their Security skill and proceed to unlock the nearest door or container. Apart from the boost, the skill check for the lock is the same as usual: 1d20 + Security vs. the lock’s DC. Security spikes are single-use and discarded whether the character succeeds in picking the lock or not; however, they are not used up if the attempt was impossible – if there wasn’t anything in range or the lock required a special keycard, for example. Regular security tunnelers grant a +5 bonus and security spike tunnelers grant a +10 bonus. Option B Option B removes security spikes from the game, replacing them with credits. The value is equivalent to the most you could get from selling the original security spike items to a merchant. Mission’s ability to create security spikes on the Ebon Hawk is removed.

    I always get lost running Anchorhead, so I decided to try adding some signs to the buildings you can enter to make them easier to spot. I'm not much chop with sign designs though, so I am looking for someone to give me a hand with some better ones. Here's what I have so far: And here is a better look at the individual designs: The cantina sign is taken from the vanilla texture LTS_signs, and the sign frame is vanilla as well. The others use a sign frame from TOR, with the textures being various mishmashes of TOR textures. Although the Czerka one is just something I slapped together myself, and the swoop was taken from one of the vanilla loading screens. I've attached some templates if anyone wants to have a crack.

    This is correct. The compatibility patch lies within the EE mod itself. There isn't a standalone patch floating around anywhere. Sorry if I phrased that all weird. I certainly think it does. @danil-ch do you think this could be something that is doable? The patch worked fine with M4-78 1.2 but that's the latest version I got to work. And I looked for you. It still lists TSLRCM version 1.8.3.

    Thanks. <bashful> I just quit the Staff. I ain't leaving the site, folks. Easier to have less responsibilities so I can concentrate on assisting other mods - mainly by recruiting. It is more rewarding (for me) and I think I might appear less like a blowhard that way. You're not rid of me yet...

    To all my friends that I have made over the years on this site, I cannot begin to tell you how much your friendship has meant to me. Unfortunately, my activity on Deadly Stream will be ceasing to a halt (aside from the occasional download) due to having orders from the United States Navy. OCS here I come!

    It's been awhile, I know. Here's an idea I threw together for a new scoring system: Colors aren't set, that's just for an example. Middle semi-circle illuminates to whomever's turn it is; bars underneath illuminate per round won.

    Getting back in the swing of things after being gone a week on vacation. The street module is all walkmeshed, blocks cameras, has aurora lights, and a minimap. All that's left is the path file, which are still proving a bit finnicky. Most of those are dynamic things that are difficult to see in a screenshot, so I'll try to do a video in the next few weeks to showcase some of the improvements. Also I will try to add in NPCs and such before then. Next I will be switching gears, working on the Arena Hall/entrance area and attempting to setup some gladiator fights.

    Hey all, I know I haven't been exactly active in the modding community in years, but I was recently approached about my previous work on my HK-47 Melee/Saber Mod. It came to my attention that since the disappearance of LucasForums, my tutorial on how I did it is no longer accessible. However, I managed to dig up an old copy. Given how long it's been this information may be old news, but I figured I would repost it here in case it is of use to anybody else. This is the original instructions I made to create the HK-47 mod, it was a rather crude and experimental procedure for me at the time, so it can definitely be refined and improved. Feel free to reply with any updates or experiences. Without further ado, here is the original tutorial:

    Version v2


    ************************************** Knights of the Old Republic - The Sith Lords ************************************** TITLE: Effixian's Bao-Dur Reskins AUTHOR: Effix(ian) CONTACT: PM me on the forums or find me on Steam. ************* INSTALLATION ************* Unzip, copy the files from one of the folders to your override folder. ************ DESCRIPTION ************ This mod includes reskins of: - Bao-Dur's head - The lightning in his mechanical arm (more red) - His mechanical arm when wearing armor (red details) - His default clothing (a lot of black) - His Remote (and with it also other Sensor Balls). The Remote gets a more Imperial look. There's 3 variations included that you can choose from, version A has different looks for light side, half way dark and fully dark side. Version B is for the Darth Maul fans who want the look inspired by him from the start. Version C is based on the Nightbrothers from Dathomir. This mod is not compatible with other mods that change Bao-Dur's appearance. TSLRCM: A few files that change Bao-Dur's default clothing to a darker version are also included in TSLRCM, so you will need to overwrite those files if you're using TSLRCM. If you like you can make backups of those files before replacing them (P_Bao_DurA.tga, p_bao_dura.txi, P_Bao_DurAD01.tga, p_bao_durad01.txi). ***** BUGS ***** None. ************* UNINSTALLING ************* Remove the following files from your Override folder: C_SenBall01D.tga fx_Baodur.tga P_Bao_DurA.tga p_bao_dura.txi P_Bao_DurAD01.tga p_bao_durad01.txi P_Bao_DurH.tga P_Bao_DurHD1.tga P_Bao_DurHD2.tga P_BaoDur_Arm.tga PO_PBaoDur.tga po_pBaoDurd1.tga po_pBaoDurd2.tga ******************* DISTRIBUTION NOTES ******************* You may NOT: Use the material from this mod in your own mod without giving me credit, implying it was your creation.

    Hello everyone! Recently, we at /r/kotor hosted a general survey about the games and posting habits on the subreddit. Most of these results aren't very interesting for Deadlystream and modding in general, but we also asked some specific questions about modding and modding habits which we restricted to only users on the subreddit which had previously installed a mod for either KOTOR or KOTOR 2. I think these results are both very interesting and quite relevant to Deadlystream, and so I thought to bring it to everyone's attention. The survey thread, which includes links to all the various sections of collated survey responses, can be found here. But, for those who just want to see what's relevant, we're most interested in the two modding sections--here and here. Now, there are some really interesting results in these two categories, including how frequently users on the subreddit mod each of the individual games, how many users have used the mod builds and the ways in which they choose to do so, and some feedback and usage statistics on K1R, TSLRCM, and M4-78; for anyone here with any fingers in those pies, it's worth taking a look at the results. There are two charts I really want to bring to everyone's attention, however, and I'll repost the first of these here: As you can see, these are the usage values for typical modding sites, with the one on the left representing usage for all users, and the one on the right excluding those who have only ever installed TSLRCM before (which we suspected granted the Steam Workshop disproportionate weight, and was largely borne out). These charts show clearly that Deadlystream sits in third place for all major modding sites, even the Steam Workshop, and even after excluding TSLRCM-only users. This means that the Workshop, which only hosts content for KOTOR 2 (and a very small selection at that), and which is only available to users who own the games via Steam, is beating out Deadlystream for usage on the subreddit. This is despite official subreddit resources like the mod builds utilizing Deadlystream; this is despite official and regular subreddit warnings about the Workshop's reliability; and this is despite our policy to link to mods on Deadlystream and recommend Deadlystream's usage whenever a user comes to us with a modding question. Now, if it was just a battle between the Workshop and Deadlystream that would be more understandable, as convenience can always win out against common-sense, and other responses to the survey showed that KOTOR 2 is by far the more modded game out of the two. But we have here the Nexus as well, which is also beating out DS on usage. It's very clear from these results that, despite the subreddit's partnership with Deadlystream and all our best efforts to encourage its use, DS is losing the race on convenience (the Workshop) and popular usage/word-of-mouth (Nexus). And this is on a site which is partnered with DS and where we do our best to support it; the prognosis for use outside reddit is likely more grim still. I bring this to everyone's attention not to be a doomsayer, but instead to illuminate the issue and open up a dialogue about how we can fix it. As everyone here knows, Deadlystream is now where the most (and the most-updated) mods are hosted; users who utilize the Workshop and Nexus not only deprive themselves of many mods, but also deprive themselves of stability due to the Workshop's poor architecture and the outdated nature of many of the mods on the Nexus. This, then, is not merely a perception problem affecting the userbase here--wherein users quite likely believe the KOTOR mod community anemic or even dead based off of perceptions surrounding the infrequent uploading and support of mods to the Workshop and Nexus--but also a usage problem, in that the end-user is being deprived of a stable game with maximum available content. I've already looped @Tyvokka into this discussion and we had a chat earlier today about wiki integration and how the subreddit (which is tied to reddit's very limited wiki functions at present) might migrate our entire wiki here in the future, which might well serve to encourage more cross-site traffic and familiarity. We also again discussed cross-site administration, events and support, and hopefully on the administrative level we can do some cooperative work to combat this trend. As has been mentioned before, at the very least when wiki support is added here and the mod builds are next updated I'll post them here, and begin dual-site support between reddit and DS. I don't want to understate the work that can be done on the level of the individual user here either, however. For example, let's take a look at the second chart, I spoke of earlier, an entirely more hopeful one: As you can see, about 50% of polled users would be potentially interested in making a KOTOR mod! The subreddit currently has a little over 37,000 subscribers, of which I'd estimate about 15,000 are still for accounts which are active on the site. I know this is a bit of guesswork, but let's just say that 75% of the "Maybe" category will eventually decide they don't want to make a mod or modding tools, and 85% of the remainder doesn't have the skills to do so and will never learn them. If you add them all up, that's still 450 users who would want to make a mod and would have the skills to do so. And I fully admit these are hypothetical approximations of skill, availability and dedication, but it's not a number to scoff at. Regardless of outcome, it's clear that there is potential here; a userbase which contains individuals who are at least willing to try their hand at modding for KOTOR, but have not as yet. I see the subreddit as a pool of potential resources for users on deadlystream, potentially containing not just users willing to do the gruntwork of testing mods, but also artists, users with modeling experience, and maybe even programmers with sufficient skill to make tools still desperately-needed by the modding community. Not everyone will agree with the need (or desirability) to look to the subreddit and its userbase for work which, in some modders' minds, is perhaps not even necessary; that's okay. I understand that considerations for mod development differ, both based on the mod and the user. But I point out this base of interest because, for those who do see potential in it, I want you to know it's there, and as subreddit staff, we're entirely on board with any efforts to harness it. We firmly believe that greater cooperation and collaboration between Deadlystream and the subreddit--which is certainly the largest KOTOR fan community on the internet now--will help drive the word-of-mouth which will help present Deadlystream as the principal KOTOR modding site, and in so doing reverse any false presumptions in the KOTOR fanbase at large that KOTOR modding is dead. Beyond that, with the recent announcement that a KOTOR movie is likely in the works, there's little better time to present a strong and vital face for the classic games than now, when interest in the series is revitalizing. Of course, the subreddit does not necessarily need to factor into this at all, beyond serving as the vehicle for bringing this issue to everyone's attention. I invite anyone reading here to share their thoughts, possible solutions, and even further concerns; we all use Deadlystream, and how frequently it's used for its intended purpose impacts all of us in one way or another. Anything that could help, even if it's impractical to implement at present (or at an administrative level), is worth mentioning. Thanks everyone for your time!

    Version 1.1


    This mod replaces the lightsaber blade textures. I've made new textures using Saber, a plug-in for After Effects made by visual effect artists who work on the actual films, which they released for free on VideoCopilot.net. The new textures are of higher quality (1024x1024 vs the original 128x128) and should be more accurate to the movie look, given that they were generated with a tool made by movie people. I've adjusted some of the blade colors; I mainly used math to choose them, placing them at even distributions along the color spectrum, and sticking with the plug-in's default setting for blue. In more practical terms, this means yellow is a bit yellower, while green and violet are closer to the blue end. Blue itself is much brighter than the original. I've included two install options for the Heart of the Guardian and Mantle of the Force colors. The default is my approximation of the original game textures, while the Alternate Textures folder has them changed to look more like standard lightsaber blades since I had to do them anyway for the K2 version. Heart becomes orange and Mantle becomes cyan, if you choose this option.

    This will be my first published mod, the aim of witch is to upscale all game UI elements. - all menus, the gameplay GUI, loading screens and icons. Personally, i always thought, that the terrible low resolution UI just doesn't work anymore and dates the game horribly. Ndix UR’s brilliant ui mod was a fantastic inspiration, but also all the HD work on this site. KOTOR was my favorite gaming experience, once upon a time. And it make me very happy to try and contribute to its continual enjoyment. Any feedback, thoughts, ideas, and perhaps slight assistance would be greatly welcomed. For one thing, can anyone point me to software, that allows for seamless viewing of KOTOR models and textures in a 3D frame with free camera?

    Version 1.0.0


    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

    Greetings, meatbags. Last time I posted in this blog was quite a while ago, so I thought I'd share what my recording space currently looks like in Texas. The rundown: It's a big ol' closet with moving blankets strung up on the walls and draped above me like a circus tent. The equipment: I've been slowly adding more and more to my space throughout my various moves. First off, the second most important instrument you have (after your voice). I've had three mics throughout my 6 or so years recording VO. I started off with the respectable Blue Yeti USB mic, moved on to the AT2020 and now have landed at the E-100S Condenser Microphone. This thing is good for me to help bring out the natural bass in my voice, but is not markedly better than the AT imo. If you're looking for a good starter mic of your own, I'd recommend the far more affordable AT. Next is the Audio Interface, which is necessary if you're using a non-USB microphone like I am. I use the Focusrite Scarlett Solo, which is a plug and play type setup and has never steered me wrong. The next most important part, is your recording software. Audacity is free and it's what I've always used. Extras: Music Stand to hold your copy (or script), mic stand, stool to place laptop on, LED clamp light to see copy, dog trainer clicker to mark mistakes with loud pops in recorded track. That's all there is to it. Til next time. - UC

    ///// 01. Two-Point-Oh ///// First off, thanks to everyone who’s downloaded and offered support through this process. I appreciate all of your comments, critiques and suggestions. Through the creative process, the gears started turning for future plans. Here’s loosely what I’m planning thus far: ///// 02. Planned Improvements ///// Remap the UVs. A lot of the patterns repeat, e.g. details on arms are also on feet, or also on base, etc. I know I wanted to remedy those first and foremost. I wanted the arms to have their own textures, the feet their own, etc. etc. etc. Progressive: Create a UV for each arm and leg, which would increase the work significantly because then we go from 2 pieces to 6. Overkill? Planet rotations. When the map opens and you see the location of each planet, they slowly (and very choppily(?) rotate. I’d really like to smooth that out a bit, as it’s just a hacked together animation. I think it has 9 frames right now? At a minimum, I’d go up to… 18 frames? Progressive: Each planet has its own custom shape and visual identifier. Right now, it’s random Aurebesh numbers (which technically didn’t exist as it does now, same with planet names), but we’ll see. Does it even need those I guess? Maybe it’s actually the type of planet referenced by the terminal, i.e. barren, arboreal, etc. More “Builder-esque”. Until ebmar pointed this out (and it should have seemed so obvious), this is a Rakata structure. I got the Aurebesh (see comment above) in there, but what else can I do to make this more “Builder”? I started looking around at a lot of source photos and ran around the Unknown World location a bit. I think I can change the rock? metal? country? to be a bit more… just “of that world”. Perhaps I made it too sleek in 1.0. While I have the texture itself pretty roughed it, it’d also make sense that some parts got chipped/rotted off here and there. Progressive: ebmar and I have been chatting about having a new sound for the opening of the maps. Dodecahedron. I really hate that thing. I want to make it a sphere or I dunno, just something different. I was so difficult to figure out how to reskin it before. There would be so much more I could do with a different shape. At the very least it’s been given a new UV map. Progressive: Play around with some transparency ideas. ///// 03. Planet Customizations ///// Let’s just go ahead and mark this whole section as “Progressive”. The idea would be to create a star map for every location, customized to that planet. The thing with that is there would need to be at least 4 more placeables created or they’d have to be built into the room itself. Hard to say what the route would be at this point, I mean, there are a limited number of placeables in the game. Anyway, the custom ideas: Dantooine This would just be the base model. Similar to what it is now, though with a violet glow. Tatooine Yellow glow. Sand-blown, sand in crevices and piled around base. Maybe throw some krayt scales in there? Like the dude was using it as a scratching post. Kashyyyk Green glow. This thing has been in a jungle for what, 10k years? Let’s thrown some moss, vines, etc. on there. It’d only make sense that the jungle would start taking it back. Moisture stains. Rust? I’m iffy on that one. Manaan Blue glow. Heavy algae growth. Coral, barnacles growing on it? Korriban Red glow. (durrr) I’m a little stuck on this one because it’s unexposed to the elements basically. I was thinking along the lines of blood splatters and saber burns. Thinking maybe someone fought in that room at some point. ///// 04. Recent Dev ///// The model has a completely new UV map. Every part has its own map to avoid pattern repetition. While I don’t know if I’ll recreate all 3 arms and all 3 legs still remains to be seen. Lots of reading about creating placeables and modding rooms. ///// 05. Future Dev ///// I really don’t care for the end animation of when you open the final star map. It seems so lackluster and very anticlimactic to me. I envision once the final map opens and the coordinates triangulate, you now have a large hud of the starforge. As of now there are just blue streaks and dinky animations (no offense Bioware). All of this really gets into some hardcore modeling and animation and that’s way, way, WAY over my head. I’m using Blender too, and well, it doesn’t like KotOR animations that much. ///// 06. Final ///// So that’s what’s going on at this point. Thanks again to everyone who’s download the mod, given their opinions and suggestions and more. This has been a fun project and I’m hoping it will continue to be so! If there’s anything you’d like to add to the above list or have anything else you’d like to share, by all means. Feel free to follow this post for updated now and then. Cheers, -CO

    Version 2.0


    New HD texture for Malek. Resolution of the texture of the head 1024X1024. Resolution of the body texture 2048x2048. The texture is made from scratch. You can choose between blue eyes and red. Really easy to install: copy all the files to your override. Look at the comparison picture to get a better idea:

    Ah, that is a skin weight issue then presumably. Probably either not enough or too many neck weights on a few verts. I'll have a look at it and see if I can spot it. Edit: Here's the problem. Two verts on either side have neck weights they shouldn't. I've updated the archive above. Redownload it and see if it is an improvement.

    This is more of an idea than a request. It might be cool to have a mod that adds the Yavin Station to KotOR 2, now that porting is allowed. I did some experiments myself, but there's a bunch of things that I wouldn't know how to fix. - lighting - door scripts, dialogue triggers - the module is referencing to K2 doors which do not fit the door openings m50aa.zip

    You need the version for the game you're porting to, so in this case K1. Everything else seems fine, so if that's still not working, it's possible MDLEdit requires you to convert to ASCII, then load the ASCII before compiling. I usually do manual adjustments with KOTORMax rather than a straight port so I don't remember the specifics on that. And if that is the case, then you would likely have to do manual adjustments as well, because MDLEdit & MDLOps don't always get the smoothing groups right when converting.

    Fantastic! Many thanks for the efficient-yet-rather-effective tutorial DarthParametric! I'm in progress on practicing this information now. I will attach the said tutorial in the first post to have the potential reader an easier access to its knowledge. Again, thanks! And very much appreciated. ____________________________________________ Anyways, I just found something that is quite "important" while ago; I surfed through the game files with the KotOR Tool and found a cubemap which labeled "CM_eh", and then leads me to assuming that it was linked to the Ebon Hawk's specularity. And yes it is; I opened the file using PS and there are E-Hawk's reflections init. So, I fiddled around with the vanilla EH's textures and have them all implemented with the said cubemap- assigning vanilla bump-map to the linked textures and later having this results: This is the entrance/exit passage of the Ebon Hawk. I haven't checked the bump-map inside this room model so as we can see there are no bump-map applied there; but more-or-less, this how the room looks with the "CM_eh" applied to the textures: This is the Hawk's dorm, and bump-map feature has been checked for this room. This one of the Hawk's alley'; no bump-map applied but "CM_eh" has been utilised on them textures. This is the intersection near the engine-room. The bump-map and "CM_eh" has been applied in this room model. This is the Swoop's room; I ended-up changing the alpha on the bike with the standard reflection because the vanilla alpha is not really effective, I mean; I am certain that BioWare wanted to give the impression that the Swoop was having an incident before, looks from the reflection it gave. It produces an inside-bump-and-dents-like reflection but I don't know, maybe the execution could be nicer, I think. This is the cabin whom Juhani used to chill. No bump-map applied yet in that room. This is the cockpit. Bump-map applied. This is too from the cockpit but from another point-of-view. This is not really vanilla because as we can see there are Sith Holocron's "KOTOR2 More Subtle Animated Ebon Hawk Monitors (still not including Galaxy Map)" and Fallen Guardian's "Ebon Hawk Texture Enhancement" computer panel featured there. Must haves! And this is the Hawk's center room. Bump-map applied. Edit: ndix UR's "Ebon Hawk K1 Fixes" are featured in the screenshots. ____________________________________________ To tell the truth, the primary motivation of this research was because of this screenshot of Ebon Hawk's interior from one of Apeiron's tweet while ago. I know, and it was obvious; different engine means different results. And even if with the same engine but with the wrong application of feature could leads to different results too. I only kind of curious about how optimal is this [IIRC] Odyssey Engine could be? Many thanks for taking your time here. Hope this finding kind of helps.

    Billy Dee was available (and willing) for VII, JJ just didn't care enough about Lando to add him in. Rian thought of Lando, but he "Had to be" DJ, and that wouldn't fit Lando, so Lando had to go (re-write you HACK!) It's pretty clear if Carrie Fisher was still around JJ wouldn't have called Billy Dee for IX, passing him before. He's just there to replace the carrot that passed away. Talk about insulting. For that reason alone no-one should watch IX. They have their mouth full with "diversity" and other nonsense, but they overlook Lando Calrissian and our interest and fandom of him ENTIRELY only bothering to add him once all others fall away. Again, it's insulting of the highest degree, and they expect us to praise them for it. No, no way in hell.

    Hey man thanks for your post. But I might be bias since I am a Kreia fan, but it's been sometime since I completed K2 and I've never completed it with the restored content mod, which is why I am replaying the game with the restored content. Anyway my point is I don't remember that quote but like I said it's been sometime since I completed the game. The reason why I remember what she says on the Ebon Hawk is because I just went through that conversation. But either way I think I picked an enemy old EU fans will like. I just can't see how Nihilus's hunger could skip an empire full of Force users.

    For Kotor One, I guess it would have to be Taris. The planet, in terms of modules, is so large and full of a vast array of NPCs to make it feel alive. All the characters on Taris were unique (even if you literally saw clones of them all over the place) due to their beautifully written story and VO acting. Every level you progress to is different just like how every character describes it as, from the rich Upper City, to the Poor and Crime Ridden Lower City and the frightening Under city. During my first play through, I felt almost exactly like the NPCs in the game feel in their levels: Upper City is a safe area to hang out in the shops and Duel Ring, the Lower City made you fear for your life as seemingly every corner had thugs ready to murder you and the Under city made me literally not want to leave the Village because I thought the Rakghouls were A: OP asf and B: I believed would get the Rakghoul disease. For Kotor Two: I'd have to put my money on Dantooine, whilst I wasn't as Naive back when I first played Kotor 1, I really felt the same atmosphere I felt with Taris but with Dantooine. The VO and writing cements the concept that this is a run-down, seen better days, poor, weak planet which has little to no law keeping the innocent Settlers and farmers safe from greedy Scavengers and blood thirsty Mercenaries, the plot of the planet is short yet still fun and interesting. Other planets like Onderon literally forces you to play both Dxun AND Onderon without any option of leaving before you finish your main quest WITHOUT Atton and once you do finish the quest you need to go back AGAIN to fight in the Battle of Onderon. Nar Shaddaa is slightly better but makes up for it with other minor flaws to ruin it, compared to other renditions of Nar Shaddaa in SW games this Nar Shaddaa is boring asf. When I do try to finish all of the bonus quest of Nar Shaddaa I ALWAYS get Attons bloody "We got this message on the Comlink. Looks like trouble" notification which blocks me from finishing any quests until you finish the planets main plot, here I usually just use the "warp" command to get to wherever I need to go just before I get that notification. Then you have Korriban, which is short and somewhat bland if you don't have M4-78 (Which just makes Korriban a necessary inconvenience just to get to M4-78). Fighting those Hississ' with that bland fighting music and those horrible sound sets, that noise will haunt my dreams.

    Version 1.1


    A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION High Quality Blasters By Sithspecter Description: When Knights of the Old Republic won Game of the Year in 2004, none of the awards were for the blaster models. While the storyline and gameplay are top notch, the default weapons are sadly lacking in quality. Extremely low polygon models combined with 64 px by 64 px textures make them horrendous to look at. On my last playthrough of KotOR, I had enough of the ugly blasters. Who wants to pay thousands of credits for a terrible looking grey-ish blob that's supposed to be a top notch firearm? Nobody, that's who! So I sought out to fix this problem and provide high quality models and textures. This mod completely replaces the existing blasters with newly modeled firearms, complete with high quality textures. Special care was taken to retain the form and look of the original items, but in a high quality package. Each weapon was carefully textured based on close examination of its default counterpart. It's a much improved package that I hope will be a permanent addition to your KotOR override folder for years to come. Use: Use of High Quality Blasters is extremely easy. Put all the files in your Override folder, then play the game. That's it! The new models will automatically appear when you load up your last save. However, this mod does make a couple .uti changes to avoid doubling up on weapon textures. I've applied a new model and texture to a few items that share a model and texture in the default game. The following items are affected: Baragwin Assault Gun Baragwin Disruptor-X Weapon Baragwin Heavy Repeating Blaster Baragwin Ion-X Weapon Carth's Blaster Genoharadan Blaster What this means is that if you already have one of these items, it will still show up as high quality, but it will share a texture with another high quality item. If you re-acquire one of these through cheats or KSE, it will appear properly. If you start a new game, everything will appear properly. This will not negatively affect the gameplay in anyway. A note about the Sith Sniper Rifle: I discovered that the Sith Sniper Rifle is widely used as a blaster wielded by Sith Troopers. It looks somewhat comical used by them (predominantly fired from the hip). So, I have included something of a patch that allows the Sith Troopers to use a regular looking version of it with the new texture. The Sniper version can be found at Kebla Yurt's store in the Upper City North of Taris and in a container in the Sith Academy on Korriban. If you want to cheat more Sith Sniper Rifles that look like a sniper, use the following code: giveitem g_w_blstrrfl006 Installation: 1. Run "High Quality Blasters Installer.exe" in the zip file. 2. Follow the on screen instructions, and point the Installer to your game folder (not Override folder) 3. Profit Version 1.1: If you have installed High Quality Blasters previously, you can install this version over it and it will still be fine. However, if you want to fix the bug of the blaster randomly appearing under the Ebon Hawk on Tatooine, you must remove the following files (make sure of exact filenames): w_ionrfl_004.mdl (NOT w_ionrfl_04.mdl) w_ionrfl_004.mdx (NOT w_ionrfl_04.mdx) INCOMPATIBILITY: IF YOU HAVE TOASTY FRESH'S TOTAL WEAPON OVERHAUL OR FALLEN GUARDIAN'S WEAPON MODEL OVERHAUL TEXTURE REWORK, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO INSTALL THIS MOD OVER THOSE MODS WITHOUT AN ISSUE. HOWEVER: DO NOT INSTALL TOASTY FRESH'S TOTAL WEAPON OVERHAUL OR FALLEN GUARDIAN'S WEAPON MODEL OVERHAUL TEXTURE REWORK OVER THIS MOD. IT WILL LIKELY CAUSE THE TEXTURES TO BE WRONG. Bugs: Due to differences between the body models (especially female), the weapons will sometimes appear to clip the hands especially in the female off-hand). There is nothing I can do about this without introducing more issues, it is something that happens with the default weapons, and you will have to live with it. Changelog: Version 1.1: Fixed an issue where a blaster rifle randomly appeared under the Ebon Hawk on Tatooine. Fixed an issue where Bith instruments were replaced by pistols. Fixed the Assassin Droid and War Droid models to accept the high quality repeating blaster texture for their weapons.

    Version 1.2.0


    This mod was requested by @Spectrometer. This replaces part of the trio of Dark Jedi that ambush you on Tatooine and Kashyyyk with Sith Assassins from TSL. You have two options: 1) The two Dark Jedi by the sides are replaced with Sith Assassins 2) The leading Dark Jedi is replaced with a Sith Assassin Personally I would go with option #1 because in #2 the Sith Assassin will be the one speaking to you, while in #1 they will silently stand by the side. I doubt Sith Assassins would waste time on pointless conversations. But it's your choice, otherwise I wouldn't have made it Note: If you go with option #1, you will make the fight slightly easier. This is because one of the Dark Jedi had a Dark Jedi Knight robe, which I had to remove because it obviously looked weird with the new model. I might address this in the future. Installation: Run TSLPatcher.exe, choose which option you want from the dropdown menu, and select your main game folder. You will get 4 warnings if you install one of the versions when you already had the other installed. Uninstallation: Remove n_darkjh01.mdl/mdx, n_darkjlowm.mdl/mdx, tat17_darkjedi01-03, N_DarkJLowM01.tpc, and N_DarkJH01.tpc from your Override folder. Replace your appearance.2da and heads.2da with the backup that was generated. This is a port from TSL. I'm not sure if I have to clarify that, but just in-case. Compatible with any mod unless for some reason it uses the Sith Assassin TSL models/textures (n_darkjlowm.mdl/mdx, n_darkjh01.mdl/mdx, N_DarkJLowM01.tpc, and N_DarkJH01.tpc) Credits: Obsidian Entertainment (Sith Assassin model/texture) Bioware (KotOR) Fred Tetra (KotOR Tool) JCarter426 & Darth Parametric (helping me figure out porting between K1 and TSL) Spectrometer (original idea) bead-v (MDLedit) Stoffe (TSL patcher)

    Well, you're absolutely right. That scene will never feel the same without this mod installed! So lucky just barely get my feet wet in the Lower City on my current playthrough- and without second thought, I downloaded and install this awesome mod minutes after its release! Lol. All said and done- Permanent spot in the 'Override' folder has been filled.

    Version 1.0


    This is a fix for a number of issues present on the supermodels, the stock animations used for most characters in the game. When wielding dual melee weapons, male hands would clip through the weapons for some animations, notably the looping ready pose. The issue seemed to be that the fingers were gripping the weapon too tightly, so I loosened them up for the male models. If you think you've spotted any other issues, send me a picture so I can confirm what the problem is and whether it's an issue with the supermodels. If so, I'll add it to my to-do list.

    I know there are many here who love this glorious "mod" as the devs have been telling everyone for the past 2 years. So let me post a conversation that I had with a dev on their discord chat earlier today. For those that do not know, my discord name is Winter 😂

    Version 1.0


    This mod fixes two problems with the VO in the game. T3-M4 was missing some VO files. This would cause his lines to be skipped when these files were referenced in the original game. The files missing were his short question variants and I was able to edit together new ones using his medium and long variants as a source. Some of the Gand entries were misplaced; they were typed on the unused Gotal line rather than the Gand line. In this case, the VO did exist, but it wasn't being referenced properly in the 2DA file. I've adjusted the file to correct that. I don't recall if this presented any problems in the released game, but the affected VO files were the question and sad variants. I didn't remove them from the Gotal line in case that was actually used for Gand VO in the game. TSLRCM (as of the time of this mod's initial release, v1.8.5) does address the T3 issue, but it does this by replacing T3's VO with generic utility droid VO, which I really, really didn't like. So if you're using TSLRCM, this mod will revert that change.

    Tython - Jedi Temple The call had been vague, but that was not surprising. Vagueness was something Janek was dealing with on almost daily basis. What was curious though, was the location: Jedi usually cleaned up their own messes, so why would the presence of a spy be needed? The thought was not only confusing, but also unsettling - the Jedi breaking out of their habits could only mean something bad, right? Deep in this line of thought, Janek entered the Temple and stopped for a moment to take in the scenery (exits: check, ambush locations: check). Tython. Why it had to be Tython of all places? To say that the sheer amount of Force-users lurking around the halls was making Janek nervous would be an understatement; for someone with a lot to hide, the fact that anyone could dig into his innermost secrets without him even realizing was a living nightmare. And on top of that, the architecture itself was making him dizzy. That was not good. Focus, Janek told himself. Putting his hands into his pockets, he half-consciously started to calculate totals to twenty, and moved forward, trying to find the meeting location. Easier said than done. He was told to get to a meeting in Jedi Council chambers... but not how to get there. Perhaps nobody realized he wasn’t familiar with the location? As this was his first time visiting the Temple, he had no idea where he should be going. After taking a wrong turn for the twentieth time, Janek finally gave up and asked for directions, which did give him some sense of where he was going, at last. Afraid of being late of the meeting, he rushed forward, almost colliding with a group of Jedi walking on opposite direction, but finally found the correct door. Hopefully.

    There's probably a strong argument to keep it pre-rendered just because even if you could jam everything into a single module, there's no way to do the transitions in-engine. With that in mind, you should look into that camera track generator that I seem to recall @bead-v was working on at some point. That would allow you to do those same rotating shots around the star maps as in the original video.

    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.
