    Version 1.2.0


    Replaces the first black woman player character with Juhani from Kotor 1. This mod replaces the head, portrait, underwear model and underwear textures with Juhani's. In addition, the dancer outfit has been replaced by either a Kotor 1 style Jedi outfit or Juhani's default outfit, depending on the version. Since every female player character uses the same model for underwear and every black woman the same texture, this mod will affect all of those. The respective dark side textures were also replaced with Juhani's normal textures. JuhaniTSL_jedi_outfit.zip is the recommended version, which replaces the dancer outfit with her Jedi outfit. JuhaniTSL_default_outfit.zip uses the (still buggy) default outfit instead. The flap on her default outfit is a bit weird, so I'll try to fix that later. I'll also be fine-tuning whatever details I assuredly missed when messing with this stuff, as this is all still new to me. This mod was suggested by Bane_Ross, who is welcome to suggest alterations in case I misunderstood something.

    It's been a long time since I've made a WIP thread here on Deadlystream, usually I just make a mod in private and (if it is finished) I release it. This WIP thread isn't about a single mod, however. The release of my latest mod, Diverse Galaxy, marks the beginning of my NPC Overhaul series. The NPC Overhaul series shall be multiple mods which 'Overhaul' many of the NPCs within Kotor 1 (with the possibility of K2 versions of these mods being made at a later date). Kotor has a reputation of having a sort of 'clone' effect where you'll see the same set of generic heads in close proximity to each other in-game. the Diverse Galaxy mod will swap the appearances of over 150 NPCs to ensure that you'll encounter more variety in the game, this mod only changes the NPC's heads and will not affect the Lite NPCs. As the K1 Community Patch is REQUIRED for this mod to work the Lite NPC's will be upgraded by the K1CP mod anyway. As this is a series, more mods are planned to be made which do similar things for the game's NPCs, however, I am at a lost as to how the first few mods should be made. I wanted to release these mods separately so that users can install what they want, but I also have the option of simply adding these first few mods directly into the Diverse Galaxy mod as part of updates. The mod ideas are as follows: * Diverse Galaxy: Will diversify the heads and appearances of Kotor's NPCs. RELEASED! * Fashion of the Old Republic: Will diversify the clothing of Kotor's NPCs and will apply lore-friendly armor when applicable (This armor does not drop) RELEASED! * Lite of my Life: Will convert the generic NPCs who use the Lite appearances into standard generic NPCs, will use the heads, appearances and clothing style as DG and FotOR meaning this mod would be installed 3rd alongside them both. RELEASED! These mods will all use vanilla assets and won't really 'add' anything to the game other than swapping out appearances/clothing in the .MOD files, this would make it easy for me to add these 3 mods into one mod. I'm thinking of having 3 separate TSLPatcher installations with one being Diverse Galaxy, the other being Fashion of the Old Republic and 3rd being Lite of my Life. Feel free to leave your opinions and suggestions!

    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 sure many of us play the Kotor 1 Community Patch (K1CP), it's the 4th most downloaded mod on Deadlystream after all! And I'm sure many of us might also know that the K1CP isn't compatible with the Kotor 1 Restoration (K1R mod)... you might be wondering, why is that? K1R is similar to it's K2 cousin, TSLRCM, in that it restores cut content, fixes bugs in the vanilla game and it expects you to install it first and any other mods installed afterwards need to be made compatible with it. But K2 was rushed, Obsidian was forced to leave content unfinished and cut the rest to make way to make way for a release before the 2004 Christmas sales... this not only gutted much of the plot but it also left a plethora of bugs upon release. TSLRCM undoes all of this by restoring much of Obsidian's intended content for early 2005 and fixing many of the game breaking bugs. K1, on the other hand, wasn't like this. What was cut by Bioware was stuff that most players agree was *actually* cut for a good reason, and the bugs in the vanilla game weren't nearly as bad as they were in vanilla K2. In K1R's "prime" from its full release in 2015 until K1CP's first release in 2018, K1R competed with many mods that were incompatible with it such as Kainzorus Prime's NPC Overhaul Mod... and since all K1R had to offer was minor and controversial restored content and minor bug fixes many players, including myself, opted for the much better incompatible mods. With the release of K1R's 1.2 update, there have been a handful of critical bugs in the mod with some capable of breaking the game. This would normally be fixed by the Dev Team behind the mod, but one by one the original K1R Devs left the Kotor Community with only 2 K1R Devs remaining in the community. The mod's leader, ZM90, also vanished... without him, it's impossible to update K1R as he's the one who hosts it, more importantly, we can't obtain permission to update K1R or use assets from K1R. With K1R being seen as undesirable by many and with no hope of it ever being fixed, the developers of the newly emerging K1CP mod abandoned K1R compatibility... just over 5 years later and K1R has become a obsolete relic of the past whilst the K1CP has become the ultimate bug fix mod for K1 standing alongside TSLRCM in importance (Not anywhere near as close, TSLRCM is still King... but its far superior to K1R). Some modders might still make their mods K1R compatible, but I don't bother since K1R has those before mentioned game breaking bugs... why on earth would I put in the effort to make my mods K1R compatible if your game is guaranteed to break because you installed K1R? I'd much rather focus on K1CP compatibility as their dev team is active, are willing to fix bugs with their mod and are still working to this day to fix more vanilla bugs. So this creates a problem... many of us play K1CP, but we can't have Restored Content due to K1CP being incompatible with K1R, and no one can update K1R as the original K1R Devs have abandoned the community... so how do we update K1R? How do we get K1CP compatible with K1R if K1CP Devs refuse to do it? My answer: forget K1R... The K1 Community Patch has already taken the mantle of the "main Kotor mod" from K1R and we can't change that, but we can work with this! This thread is a WIP thread for an upcoming mod, one that you will install after the K1CP mod, one that will restore Kotor 1's cut content whilst having K1CP and it's many, many bug fixes installed! I present to you: Restored Content for the K1 Community Patch or RC-K1CP for short! Now we have to keep our expectations in check... this is currently a one man project, and I alone cannot recreate K1R in its entirety from scratch... though I can, however, restore much of the lesser restored content like impossible difficulty before working my way up to the big leagues like the Vulkar Sublevel. Much of what can be restored is limited to my own modding abilities, so if I can't restore the Vulkar Sublevel constantly requesting it won't make me restore it... it'll be restored when I'm able to restore it, and if that time is not now it'll be some time in the future. You might be wondering; won't this impact the development of my NPC Overhaul mod development? The answer is no... that is because the first release of the RC-K1CP Demo is ready for release! In the coming week or two, I'm planning on releasing some screenshots from the mod to demonstrate what the mod has thus far alongside a YouTube video of an ambitious restoration. Once these are posted here, I shall release the RC-K1CP Demo here on Deadlystream for you to try out! Updates for the RC-K1CP shall be done in two ways; they shall be done in either content updates which adds restorations and bug fix updates which fixes bugs with the mods. As with any other mods, I'd like for players to be ever vigilant for possible bugs and to report any if bugs do arise! RC-K1CP does not follow the same "rules" as K1R and TSLRCM did, so you might see some restored content K1R avoided or never knew existed... so keep that in mind! With release version 0.1.0, you shall enjoy the following restorations from the RC-K1CP. And lastly, there are some things you might consider 'cut content' which might be added to the RC-K1CP. If this cut content was found in pre-release screenshots between 2001-early 2003 before the games release it could be added to the K1 Pre-Release Pack instead and if it's from the XBOX version but was cut from the PC version it might be added to the Knights of the Old XBOX mod (which is due for an update anyway). What do we think? Do you have any suggestions or recommendations? Anything you dislike in K1R you don't want to see in RC-K1CP?

    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.
