    Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 : Expanded Galaxy Project - Beta Over all both releases contain everything necessary for KotOR and KotOR 2 in order to add every planet / missing module to each game and vice versa and I have plans to add an overall questline during the game for each area as well as an expansion to both games, currently every module can only be warped to with the cheats enabled in the swkotor.ini files for both games.

    Hello everyone! I just wanted to stop by and give everyone an update on the Community Patches. Although I've started to have a little bit more of a normal schedule these days, I'm still really busy and as much as I'd like to work on modding KOTOR, it always seems to slip further and further down my TODO list. However, there's still lots to do on the patches, and I don't want them to stagnate, so towards that end I'm giving @JCarter426 and @DarthParametric permission to update both of the community patches. They are both veteran modders who understand the spirit of the patches, and will take good care of it I'm sure! This doesn't mean I'm done working on them, just that I'm bringing in other people to the project for its own good I'll still work on it whenever I get the chance for sure! Thanks again for all your well wishes and support!!

    I like the idea of porting the modules between the games for further expansion. I would agree with what has been said, porting the entire story between either game would not be allowed with out specific permission from the publishers/developers/Disney. With that said, I am against blocking of all discussion on the matter, as I think that even if it is only for educational and research purposes it is a great subject to discuss and collaborate on.

    Uhm, what? No progress, sorry. The last thing I did with the mod was to send it out to my testers. They tested it and provided very helpful feedback but I have not yet implemented any of it. I haven't forgotten about the mod, it's just not on top of my priority list right now.

    I've got another small update. This time it's on the KotOR Forge Modding Suite. I took a break from coding over the holidays, so work has been a bit slow on the engine 😇. I had a bit of inspiration over the past couple of days and whipped up a visual lip sync editor. It's still early on, but It will be available for testing in the next release. As always I've thrown in a short video preview below of some of the things it can already do. Key Features List Timeline Editor for easy Keyframe scrubbing and editing Preview heads for visual aid Preview audio that tracks with the timeline Auto loads in audio from the game assets if the lip filename matches Let me know what you all think, and if something like this would be useful. 😃 I'm also thinking it should also be able to add .PHN support since someone seems to have uploaded a version to the site. I just can't get it to install properly on my windows 10 machine. Looks like i'm getting the same error as another person in the support thread for it. 😞 Edit: I was able to get CSLU Toolkit working after some help from @Ashton Scorpius. After referencing the conversion table in LipSyncEditor I was able to get PHN imports working yay! Oh and a little housekeeping.... I don't currently have any plans to do that atm. Thanks for the feedback!

    I'm still here. And after moving, handing in a thesis and working a lot I finally had some time to work on skyboxes again. Yeay I also just realised today that I can use a simple cylindricalk UVW map for lightmaps and don't have to use a multi-unwrap script followed by somehow projecting a cylindrical map and rendering that to a texture. With that roadblock out of the way I was able to get a lot of work done for Taris. The backdrop buildings are now lightmapped to blend with the skybox: For comparison. Here's the same without lightmaps: In that case one would of course change the color for the texture but you can also see the change in "lighting" in the lightmapped image from left to right. That would have been impossible with a single backdrop building texture and no lightmaps. Now I just need to figure out what those weird white rectangles floating around the upper city are and get rid of them. I might also tweak the lightmap some more, especially for the Upper City South. And I need to check if everything still looks good once I render the skybox with all clouds enabled. Apart from the lightmaps I also did something else today. I'll show it in a screenshot and for some reason I'm feeling like making a guessing game out of it. Please don't ask me why. I'll post some hints in spoiler tags below and if you don't feel like guessing, you can just open the answer-spoiler^^ Answer: That's it for now, so all that's left for this post is me wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    View File K1 Ported Alien VO Replacements This mod replaces the voice overs used for Nikto & Aqualish NPCs in KOTOR. In KOTOR I, Nikto & Aqualish NPCs use the same VOs meant for Twi'leks, Ithorians, & Rodians. Because KOTOR II adds in VOs specific to the two species, I figured hey, why not incorporate them back into the original game? The intention of this mod is to provide consistency between the two games, while keeping the affected dialogue true to its intended "feel". To the best of my ability, I've added diversity, avoided repitition, & also added in mouth animations for VOs that originally had none. A bonus side effect of this mod is that the aggressive Nikto VOs make the Black Vulkars seem like an actual threat. I've included compatibility patches for the Queedle Fix, KOTOR 1 Community Patch (which includes the Queedle Fix), & K1 NPC Overhaul mod. NOTE: If you already had v1.0.0 installed, please download the Bug Fix option as it makes it easier to upgrade. Installation & Uninstallation To install this mod, run TSLPatcher.exe & select the first option. In order to proceed, you must confirm that you also have KOTOR II installed (just to keep it safe when it comes to porting legality). If you have the KOTOR 1 Community Patch/Queedle Fix or the K1 NPC Overhaul mod installed, run the installer again & select the option(s) for the corresponding compatibility patch(es) you need. To uninstall this mod, delete the files from your game's Override and streamwaves folders (I've included a list of them in the readme.txt). If necessary, restore any files in "backup" to the Override folder. Compatibility Compatibility patches have been added for the mods already mentioned due to their common usage. This mod currently is not fully compatible with the K1 Restoration Mod. Known Issues Some of the Nikto VOs don't have perfectly matching mouth animations, which is because KOTOR II has some missing .LIP files. The placeholders I'm using are as close as I could find. Maybe I'll create my own one day, maybe I won't. Redros's mouth doesn't move for a couple of lines of dialogue. This bug happens regardless of this mod & only if his appearance is Nikto, so I felt it's a bug beyond this mod's scope. Please let me know of any other issues you find, or if you come across anything I missed! Credits Fred Tetra, Kotor Tool Fair Strides, KotOR Toolset tk102, DLG Editor Major thanks to the KOTOR community for the passion & dedication that keeps these games alive. Disclaimer This mod is not supported by LucasArts, BioWare, or Obsidian Entertainment. It is for personal usage only & intends no copyright infringement. As this mod ports files from KOTOR II to KOTOR I, it's intended for players who already own both games. I do not claim ownership of these ported files. Contact me on DeadlyStream or via Discord (listed on my DS profile) if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or the like. If you want to use this mod as a part of an external work, please reach out to me first to get permission! If you just want to use the included .WAV or .LIP files, you're better off extracting them yourself. Not only are they not my property, some of them are renamed duplicates or have been modified otherwise. Submitter Ashton Scorpius Submitted 01/04/2019 Category Mods K1R Compatible No

    CSLU Toolkit (No Online Licensing) View File Previous versions of the CSLU Toolkit could not be installed without an active licensing server. This was unavailable for almost two years. This program has been modified by myself and the original authors to allow for an installation without CSLU's servers being active. This program is required to create .phn files used for new .lip files. Instructions ------------ 1. Copy "CSLU Toolkit" folder to the following destination: "C:\Program Files (x86)\" 2. Open command prompt as administrator! 3. Change directory to "C:\Program Files (x86)\CSLU Toolkit" (command is: "CD C:\Program Files (x86)\CSLU Toolkit") 4.

    My next project is to make a K1 soundset for Lana Beniko. Yes, I know no one has extracted either of her two heads yet for use in K1 (or TSL) but it's only a matter of time, I suppose. I may as well be prepared. I've actually done a majority of her lines. However, you folks out there could help me in this endeavor. If Lana Beniko has even mentioned anything about the subjects listed below, please post a link to a YouTube video where she has said it, with a time stamp. By finding a relevant video, it cuts down my time extracting and converting unnecessary files. Keep in mind that it has to been said as if she's talking about herself, and not Lana talking to the player character. These subjects are listed from top priority to lowest priority. Regarding Mines (need 1 line for disarming them) Lana is poisoned (only need one good line but will accept more if you find them!) Using Stealth (need one good line but will accept more if you find them!) You find me a usable line, you're in the credits! PS: If you can't recall what she looked like, this should remind you. "Before" indicates Forged Alliances, Shadow of Revan, and Ziost sections. "After" is KOTFE and beyond. (Please don't quote lines from the Ossus storyline though. I don't have access to those lines yet.) By the way: Like in my other soundset replacement pack , I will not be replacing the injury sounds as one scream sounds very much like another.

    Signal the tower! To arms! Just don't talk about those plans here again, and keep on doing what you are doing. Edit your OP to not say that, and edit your funny and good post to keep it all good. This is unfortunately your best course of action. Increasingly the internet is composed of busybodies, crybabies and tattletales that will try to control you any way they can to satisfy strange needs. Ignore them as much as you can.

    Download : Downloads for my KotOR Modding Tutorial Series are available in the post below and on the ModDB pages. Update : Please let me know how you get on with these tutorials, if you have any problems or suggestions for how I could improve anything even grammar / formatting I would really appreciate it, I hope to construct a tutorial series that covers modding of both the Expanded Galaxy Project and both KotOR games from basic modifications to Total Conversion Modifications set in the Old Republic Era of the Star Wars Universe, anything beyond this would require more work on your part, I believe it would be possible to make some interesting stories using the Odyssey engine for Point & Click type games or RPGs in general, but I believe it is better suited towards the Star Wars Universe, more specifically the Old Republic Era due to the abundance of content available in both games, but it could also be re-purposed for other Star Wars Stories from any time. https://www.moddb.com/mods/expanded-galaxy-project-kotor-12/downloads/kotor-modding-tutorial-series I will be posting my tutorials on ModDB as well, here is my first link which is a rough tutorial and overview of the future tutorials I have planned, both mods pages on ModDB will also have files to go alongside each mod and help streamline the process of creating levels for both games in the KotOR series and for the Expanded Galaxy Project. https://www.moddb.com/mods/kotor-ii-tsl-expanded-galaxy/tutorials/streamlining-module-creation 01 - [TUTORIAL] - Creating a Module for TSL using a KotOR Map!

    There's nothing fancy about it. I just copied the mesh from another module (Upper City South), positioned it in my Davik's Estate scene in 3ds Max and linked it to the skybox odysseybase. And since I'm lazy, I took a building mesh that already has a proper lightmap so I didn't have to add that one either. In other news: I now consider the skybox part of Taris final. I will probably go back and tweak the lightmaps some more in the future but that will be only tiny changes. And to celebrate this milestone there is the obligatory render: I also went back to the very first skybox I made when restarting this project almost two years ago: The Telos Polar Plateau. There was always something bothering me about its snow in particular, but that's now fixed. The trick was to get rid of the fancy snow shader (which had among other effects an actual displacement for piled up snow) and replace it with a very simple color shader instead. Then I lightened up the rock color to better match the ingame terrain and the skybox was done. Afterwards I just had to fix up the model and while doing that, I also added a skybox to the academy hangar similar to DarthParametrics standalone mod. And even though it's not exactly spectacular, here's a standalone render of that skybox:

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

    If this mod is truly dead (I really hope this is not the case, but many fans fear that the mod actually is dead), then please, at least, if Logan is reading this or You were actively involved in its development and still have the files You were working on, release the files with what You worked on so far! I understand it must be hard to let go, but let's face it: is it better for all the hard work to just "rot away", forgotten on some hard drive in an old PC, that is collecting dust in an attic, or would You prefer that people would be able to enjoy at least a part of Your hard work and creativity, with proper credit being given to Your effort! I am absolutely sure that all content made so far should be released, so that we could enjoy what has been made so far, and other young, dedicated modders could pick up the pace and continue Your excellent work! It could be uploaded to GitHub or even here and given "as is", and I bet lots of people would be much happier to play an incomplete mod than no mod at all! I know it must be hard to let years of work go, but it would be a pity to let pride completly lose and destroy the very work You spent so much of your youths on! Let's face it, it's been 10 years, it is a mod for a 15-year old game, it might not even run on the operating systems we will have 5-10 years from now :(( I know it is sad, but this is the reality, I am sure everyone will really appreciate being able to just play the mod as is right now, with all its missing content and bugs! Some of us are in their mid 30s to their 50s, we might not even live long enough to get to see the full mod released, if it ever gets finished...

    The eyes (and eyelashes) are effectively bones, so yes, any misnamed bone will not inherit animation. The eyeball trimeshes must be named eyeRA/eyeLA and the lashes trimeshes eyeRlid/eyeLlid.

    I am definitely interested in this, I will unpack my modded version of BF2 at some point and a fresh copy of it ( I was working on a little mod a while back that I set aside for a while ) and was also hoping to include a lot of other good mods for an end / ultimate build of the game just like I am for my current Expanded Galaxy TSL mod. What exactly does the mod do, my guess is it improves the AI / Bots, which would be good to see! Thor110

    View File Dxun Holocron Introduction This mod adds a new holocron to the game, which can be found on a corpse on Dxun. In addition to giving the player bonuses to their maximum Force Points, which unlock at levels 12, 14, and 16, the mod also gives the player the opportunity to learn three new Lightsaber forms: Sokan (Form VIII), Shi'en (Form IX), and Niman/Jar'Kai (Form X), which can be activated as non-medical abilities. (The vanilla lightsaber forms are hard-coded in the game). This derives from an unreleased mod of mine made in 2005, in which I made these three Lightsaber Forms work as passive Force Powers. These Lightsaber Forms become available at levels 13, 15, and 17. Their stats are as follows: Sokan: Attack +3 Damage Bonus +1 Reflex Saves +3 Defence Bonus 2 Defence Bonus vs. Piercing -2 (net bonus: 0) Shi'en: Attack +3 Damage Bonus +3 Defence Bonus -2 Blaster Deflect -2 Reflex Saves -2 Niman/Jar'Kai: Attack +2 Offhand attack bonus +3 Defence Bonus 1 Fortitude Saves -1 Installation Double click 'Install Dxun Holocron', and hit the 'Install mod' button.

If no such folder was created on install by the game, you can (probably) safely delete these two files as well. Known Bugs The new Lightsaber Forms won't appear in the same place as the vanilla forms do on the GUI, but in the non-medical items slot (with the shields, basically). There's not a lot I can do about this; the Lightsaber forms appear to be hard-coded.

Bart Lasiter, glovemaster, and everyone else who taught me and continues to teach me to script; to Darkkender, for his "Recruit Darkkender" mod, which I used to work out how to make the lightsaber forms work; to Holowan Labs, which was by far the best place to work on KotOR mods on the internet; and to Obsidian, Bioware, and LucasArts, for making both KotOR games.
