    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.

    Hello there, I'm kind of new here with this being my first post but I have had this account for some years now and I also did some modding to this game back in summer 2015. Now I have been messing around with the new tools and I was interested in KotorBlender to create new animations since that's the program I recently learned for modding Jedi Academy as well and I am quite comfortable with it now. So my intention was to create new facial animations but I wasn't sure of the capabilities this plugin offered. I was quite glad when I found out that it has been recently updated and it fully supports animations as well as other models properties. But when I imported a head I was quite surprised to see that the bones in this game are not really bones like Jedi Academy for example but objects that act like such. Thus, I couldn't attach them to the mesh to see how it deformed when trying to create an animation. So I tried creating a temporary bone rig in blender that you could use and attach each bone to each object so that when you move a bone the object also moves. This may seem like it's working on paper but I had so much trouble with transforms that I almost gave up. They are a real pain in the ass. First I tried animating the bones and the objects apparently move with them but in reality they are not changing their transforms. So I tried to copy and paste them from the bones and it seemed to work in the program but in game the face was a total mess. This was because the objects were taking the absolute transforms of the bones that were in a different position that the objects are. What appears to be working in the program has nothing to do with the game and viceversa. So I just parented them and even though the objects would jump to a weird location their transforms would remain untouched as you can see in a test animation I made here: So now how do I transfer the bone movements to the objects? I tried a thing in blender called Delta transforms. This are like offset transforms that only take into consideration the relative location and rotation of an object. This was very useful in a parent/child scenario like this because now I had the original objects location/rotation + the relative transforms of the bones. Unfortunately when I tried it in game it did nothing, probably because the plugin only reads the absolute transforms, the delta transforms are stored in a different field. So I couldn't use this approach. Can the KotorBlender plugin be updated to support delta transforms? It would be really useful and nobody would have to do what I'm about to say for it to work. I needed to somehow transfer those delta transforms to the absolute transforms so that the plugin could read them. There is a function in blender called "all transforms to deltas" that transfers all the absolute transforms to the delta fields and left the absolute ones to zero which is exactly the opposite of what I need. I need to transfer this absolute+relative transforms that I have in the delta fields to the absolute fields. Luckily I found a script that did exactly this but I had to this for every single keyframe which is extremely exhausting and time-consuming. If someone here knows how to code on python can you do a script that does this automatically? It wouldn't be that bad then. So after thousands headaches I finally got it to work in-game: You can also see that the model has those wrongly shaded faces around the jaw. Anybody knows how to fix that? I saw other people having the same issue but I'm not sure how to fix it. I decompiled and compiled the model with MDLOps 1.0.0 since MDLEdit was giving a lot of problems. The point of all these is that you can make a facial animation with a dummy mesh so you can see how it looks without having to load it every single time in game. But I don't know if this is a worth approach with all these problems, if you solve one of those two though then it really is at least for me. I just wanted to share this knowledge to people who may be interested in this or don't know the extension of this plugin. Now I just need to learn animated cameras for the machinima I'm trying to make, does anyone have any tips/tools/tutorials that I could use? Would be really appreciated. Sorry for the long post. And thanks for keeping this community alive!

    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:

    This is a companion to my K1 Main Menu Widescreen Fix mod. In a similar manner, it adjusts the model file for K1's main menu so that it properly fills the full screen width of widescreen aspect ratios (i.e. 16:9, 16:10). It is designed to be used in conjunction with ndix UR’s KotOR High Resolution Menus mod (as pictured). But of course the major feature is that it swaps out Darth Malak for Darth Revan. There are four versions included: Version A uses the vanilla Revan N_DarthRevan01 texture, upscaled to 2048x2048. This texture will override the original and be used by the Revan stunt model (or flowing robes mods) during the game. Alternatively, the menu model will make use of any third party texture of the same name, should you prefer those. Version B uses a uniquely named texture, so it will not override the one used in-game, and the menu model will not make use of third party textures. Additionally, the envmap mask on this texture was adjusted to tone down the shininess of the chest and arms, as I found that a bit too overpowering. Version C uses a further modified version of B's texture to also adjust the colour of the helmet/mask visor to make it a little more apparent. Version D takes this a step further and adds a slight glow (self-illumination) to the visor. Because the original vanilla background texture is very low resolution, it looks pretty terrible when scaled up to fullscreen at 1080 (or above). I created a new, higher resolution background texture that approximates the same look. Obviously this mod will not be compatible with any other mod that also alters/replaces the menu model (including my own - although the replacement KOTOR logos are compatible). As mentioned, it is intended to be used with ndix UR’s UI mod, and serves no real purpose without that mod. N.B.: This is NOT a widescreen mod! This is just an addition for when you are already using a widescreen mod like UniWS. Installation Instructions Extract the archive, navigate to the folder that contains your desired version, copy and paste the files into your Override folder, overwriting if prompted. If you are using version A and wish to use someone else's texture, don't copy N_DarthRevan01.tpc. Known Issues The crossed over belts lack a proper animation, so they are basically static. Even scaled up the Revan model lacks the shoulder width of the Malak model, so crossing the arms was a bit difficult to replicate. Acknowledgements Thanks to @bead-v for MDLEdit and KOTORMax. Thanks to @ndix UR for TGA2TPC. Thanks to @ebmar for enquiring about the feasibility of the Malak/Revan swap, leading me down the rabbit hole of actually making the mod.

    Latest progress on cloaked party clothing robes: It's not readily apparent, but in addition to the cloak I upscaled her clothing texture and fixed some minor errors.

    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

    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.

    Hello DeadlyStreamers! To think all it took was a pandemic and an overly long SWTOR content update to get me to announce the 2018 Mod of the Year winners. And of course, keeping in tradition with my minimum effort work ethic, here they are: Best Texture Enhancement: Best Content Restoration / Addition Most Helpful Community Member @DarthParametric and of course Mod of the Year Each winner will receive their new Mod of the Year 2018 medals. Also due to the nature of the nature of the 2018 Mod of the Year winner, I'll be awarding two versions of the medal - one black and one gold! So what's the deal with Mod of the Year 2019? I don't know yet. Due to all this COVID-19 business, sounds like I'll have more time for DeadlyStream business. I think it'd simply be a matter of choosing the categories and then starting up nominations. We'll see.

    I've been doing some more modding to practise different areas and I have added a new Force Power to the game. It is based in the Retribution ability Anakin has in Battlefront 2 from EA. The Power doesn't check for any saving throws at the moment so it's kind of OP right now. It has a radius of 18 units and I don't know how much Force points it should consume yet. Here's a demo: As you can see, the Power has a custom animation, icon and sound. I have also modified the original choke animation to look closer to the one in Battlefront 2 when you are being affected by this Power. I also realised that we don't have a "multi" choke Power in the games since all three levels of choke are on one individual person, so this could cover that. But it has some inconveniences: · For some reason, the game uses the loop animation for the saber throw as the default cast anim, so I couldn't just make a new one and play it in the impact script because it would get overridden by this one. So this new animation replaces the saber throw loop animation. · Sometimes the enemies don't get affected if they are behind you or really far (but inside the Power radius). · For the new choke animation to play correctly, I had to change it from looping to fireforget. And that not might be ideal with the original one since it's really short. · If you move or kill the enemy you were targetting before the 9 seconds that the Power takes to cast, the animation of the player will get interrupted, just like with the vanilla Powers. Also you will not be able to attack again until the cast time expires. I will release this if someone thinks it is still worth it even with all of these little problems I mentioned. I will also include the source script in case someone is curious and wants to take a look at it. On another note, Ӄhrizby has finally contacted me and given me permission to use his Darth Nihilus animation fix. I have also managed to fix the icons so I have attached the two ports here just in case anyone wants them although I haven't been able to fix the character support problems so they don't have that. Type "giveitem darthnihilus_k1" without quotes for the Darth Nihilus robe item and "giveitem darthmalak_k2" for the Malak one. Also, I don't know what happened to Darth Malak. It's still pending approval. I assume if I did something wrong the admins would have told me or something. I wanted to release these two ports as well, but I want to solve any problems there are with Malak first, so that it won't happen again with these two. Anyway, hope you enjoy this.

    The K1 Community Patch (K1CP) is a compilation of previous bugfix mods and some new original fixes put together with the intention of resolving the many and various issues that KOTOR has. This includes some well-known game breaking bugs/softlocks, broken quests, inaccessible content, as well as lesser issues such as problems in conversations, visual inconsistencies, player annoyances, etc. The intention is for the changes to be as seamless as possible, fixing and improving things whilst still retaining the original developer intent. A huge thanks to all of the mod authors who created these mods, and allowed them to be included in this patch! Unfortunately, the individual list of changes has grown too long to be included in this post, however you can view a detailed breakdown of each author's contributions in the included readme file. List of Contributing Authors (alphabetical): A Future Pilot blennus danil-ch darthbdaman DarthParametric ebmar Gimmick5000 jc2 JCarter426 Kainzorus Prime Kexikus KOTOR 1 Restoration Team/Fair Strides Leilukin LiliArch Markus Ramikin N-DReW25 ndix UR R2-X2 Red Hessian Salk Thrak Farelle ZimmMaster Installation: Run INSTALL.exe and navigate to your K1 install folder. Generally speaking, this mod should be installed before anything else, except mods that do hard edits/overwrites of 2DA, TLK or MOD (module) files. Due to the size and complexity of the patch, installation may take a few minutes, depending on your system specs. Please be patient and allow it to finish. Compatibility/Known Issues: K1CP uses module injection in an attempt to remain as compatible as possible with other mods. This may result in issues with mods that simply put files in the Override folder. It is recommended that you consult the individual authors of any large scale mods, particularly those that edit DLGs and scripts, as to whether their work is compatible with K1CP. Some mods will likely require updates, some may need to be installed in a specific order, whilst others may be completely incompatible. At this time, the KOTOR 1 Restoration (K1R) mod has not been tested with K1CP v1.8. While prior versions were compatible, this is highly unlikely to still be the case with the numerous changes made in the current version. As such, using K1R is done so at your own risk. In future a compatibility patch may be developed (but no promises). These are the currently known bugs/issues with KOTOR (or K1CP itself) that are being worked on for the next release: https://github.com/KOTORCommunityPatches/K1_Community_Patch/issues If you find any others, especially with changes/additions K1CP makes, please report them so they can be fixed as soon as possible. Be sure to include as much information as possible, including a list of all the other mods you have installed and screenshots, if appropriate. Uninstallation: Given the complexity of this mod, a clean install of KOTOR is recommended. However, you can check through the installation log file if you wish to undo the changes made. Permissions: Due to this mod being a compilation from many different authors, please do not rehost/distribute it. Acknowledgements: All of the mod authors who have helped make this patch a reality. I can't say it enough - Thank you! Fred Tetra - For creating his awesome KOTOR Tool that makes us modders job a lot easier. Stoffe for TSLPatcher (with updates by Fair Strides) which enables such a complex mod to be installed while retaining some level of compatibility with other mods Snigaroo - For maintaining awesome mod lists on the /r/kotor subreddit, and for putting up with my many recommendations danil-ch - For the original info.rtf template Fair Strides - For bundling up his tools and making them available Many thanks to ebmar, Salk, and KnifeMaster for providing numerous bug reports THIS MODIFICATION IS PROVIDED AS-IS AND IS NOT SUPPORTED BY BIOWARE/OBSIDIAN ENTERTAINMENT, LUCASARTS, DISNEY OR ANY LICENSEES/SPONSORS OF THE MENTIONED COMPANIES.

    HD PC Portraits for Knights of the Old Republic v1.0 - 20190909 by ndix UR (DeadlyStream user) This modification adds high resolution (1K) portrait images for player characters (PCs). All 30 male and female vanilla player characters are provided, with all 5 light-dark variants, for a total of 150 new portraits. The 1K portraits have 256x the resolution of the 64x64 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 A couple face textures had the eye in the wrong place and had to be fixed I reduced the number of background gradients to a set of 4 standards. The originals are all over the place in terms of the gradients and I didn't have time to replicate every one. An effort was made to match each individual set of portraits to its appropriate set of background gradients. 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 subdivision surface modifiers. See the included images in preview/ for an idea of how the portraits look.

    Welp it's been a little over a year since I created this thread. Since then I built the LucasForums Archive Project to aid in my KotOR research. I thought I would share it here in case anyone is interested. It isn't anywhere near complete, but there is quite a lot included already. I may attempt to add more at some point in the future.

    So the trophy heads in Davik's estate on Taris. They are pretty dire, and I always mused about replacing them at some point. This is the vanilla room: The heads themselves are just stuck directly on the wall, with no obvious mounting/backing board like you normally see with hunting trophies. In addition, I never understood why they put the weird arch things in there, blocking the view. It's the only room that does that. So I had a look through what TOR had to offer. I couldn't replicate it 100%, since the vanilla heads are Rancor, Dewback, Wraid, Tuk'ata, Ronto, Kataarn, and Iriaz, but TOR doesn't have the last three species. Here's what I came up with: I got rid of the arches and plugged the gaps in the sides with some new lights, while moving the overhead lights up to the ceiling. The substitute heads are a Reek, a Nexu, and a Tauntaun. And since I know a lot of people don't like the TOR stuff, I also made a version that replaces the original heads with the ones from the regular vanilla creature models. Still low poly and terrible textures, but slightly less garbage than the originals. But they do at least match the same species types: The heads now match their actual creature size in the game (at least the vanilla species). The original versions were scaled down, the Rancor especially being comically small compared to the description Calo gives of bringing it down (big enough that he was able to perch on its shoulders). Although it is now so big (the size of the one you see in the sewers) that it can't actually fit on the back wall, so I had to come up with some struts to mount it out in free air. The wall lightmaps might need to be cleaned up, and I'm also not really feeling the mounting/backing boards. It just a chamfered cylinder with a procedural wood texture, since I wanted to keep it simple. I'm not sure what I should do about it. A different material/texture? Maybe more of a shield-type shape?

    As I mentioned last time, I was going to tweak the Tatooine skybox some more even though I had considered it almost done quite some time ago. The reason for that was that I had never been able to really match the skybox lighting and sand color to the ingame terrain. I had come closer with V2 than in my initial release but I wasn't really happy with it yet, so it had been on my agenda to go back and fix that. You can see that in the following image. As you can see the shadow parts of the dunes are way too dark so they don't blend with the foreground terrain at all. So I set out to fix that and now, approximately a hundred iterations later I finally arrived at a result I'm happy with. The lighting in the game is very cheaty with several different light sources creating that yellow-orange-ish light, making it impossible to replicate that with two suns and a uniform sandcolor as I had it in the skybox. I considered changing the ingame lighting for a while but that didn't turn out any good so in the end I just cheated myself. I added a third sun that lights only the ground and recolored individual parts of the sand dunes to get the correct colors in every direction. It took a lot of iterations but now I'm really happy with the result. While doing so I also realised that the skybox terrain didn't match the ingame one either. You can kinda see that on the screenshot above although it was more obvious in other places that the skybox dunes were just too small. So I widened those as well. That cause issues with the overcomplicated and unflexible way the terrain was set up. This was after all the very first terrain I ever created in Terragen and hasn't really changed much since then. So I basically rebuilt the terrain. You don't see that in the end result but it's working much better now. But I guess that's enough talk from me and you want to see some screenshots. So here you go: It's the same perspective as before but the terrain and skybox blend much better. And just for fun, here's another screenshot: That's another skybox checked off and thus almost finishing K1. Only Manaan underwater and a few fixes here and there remain.

    Description This mod aims to completely change Juhani's appearance and to bring it close to artist Corbin Hunter's redesign of the character. As a result, her head has been significantly reshaped and slightly retextured. An all-new body model was created and hand-painted from scratch. A new custom lightsaber has been created as well. As several aspects of Juhani have been changed, this mod has been divided into four editions to accomodate the final user's preferences: 1. An All-in-one edition which includes all the changes to bring her close to Corbin Hunter's vision of the character. 2. A head-only edition, which only includes Juhani's revamped head. 3. A body and lightsaber edition, which includes her new body model and lightsaber. 4. Finally, a head and lightsaber edition, which includes her new head model and lightsaber. Please refer to the included images in the 'Editions reference pictures' folder included in the archive to help you determine your preferred edition. Installation 1. Extract the archive's content somewhere on your computer. 2. Double-click the "Juhani Appearance Overhaul.exe" file. 3. Choose an edition to install. Refer to the images included in the 'Editions reference pictures' folder to determine which one you prefer. 4. Click on the "Install Now" button once you're ready. The installer will try to locate your game installation directory. If it can't find it on its own, direct the installer to the correct location. 5. The installer will proceed to install the mod's files into your Override folder. Once it's finished, you may exit the installer and launch the game. IMPORTANT If you choose an edition that includes Juhani's new body model and lightsaber: Juhani will have her new items only if you are using a save that is prior to the moment she joins your party right before leaving Daantoine. If you are past that point in your playthrough, she won't have her new items. You can get them using KSE or via entering the following commands in the in-game console: ⦁ giveitem j_juhsaber01 ⦁ giveitem j­­­_juhbody01 CREDITS Original design by Corbin Hunter: Artstation link This mod uses JC’s TSL Supermodel port in order to animate the skirt. SPECIAL THANKS to Artist Corbin Hunter for granting me permission to use this concept art @DarthParametric for his help and advice throughout the development process @bead-v for the incredible tools MDLEdit and KoTORMax

    Compatability Note: If you're using TSLRCM, Extended Enclave, or M4-78 EP mods, please install the optional Patch file matching your resolution after installing those other mods. The cutscenes were upscaled using Topaz Gigapixel AI, and interpolated to 60fps using SVP Pro 4. Black bars are used to maintain the aspect ratio of the content while bringing the videos to 16:9 overall. TO INSTALL: Make a backup of your "Movies" folder, which is in your main game directory. Download the main pack(s) that matches the resolution you play at. 1440p and 2160p are each broken into three packs. If using TSLRCM, download the matching Patch file as well. Extract/unzip the pack(s) you downloaded. Replace everything in your Movies folder with the extracted files. Do not place them in your Override folder. If you're using Aspyr's (Steam) version of the game, these should work "out of the box" without any tinkering. If you're using a different version, you can use UniWS to patch your game to the correct resolution. If this doesn't work on your version for whatever reason, you may need to use a hex editor to change some values in your game executable to get them to play correctly. Please refer to the following guide on how to do this, skipping the parts about upscaling the cutscenes: https://deadlystream.com/topic/4631-how-to-force-kotor-i-iis-bik-movies-to-play-in-any-resolution/ NOTE: Many cutscenes in KotOR 2 are in-engine recordings. These have be re-recorded at 4k60 rather than upscaled.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Even I have to do a tentative release date from time - if only to convince myself to finish it. Cast list subject to change or expansion.

    The cutscenes were upscaled using Topaz Gigapixel AI, and interpolated to 60fps using SVP Pro 4. Black bars are used to maintain the aspect ratio of the content while bringing the videos to 16:9 overall. TO INSTALL: Make a backup of your "Movies" folder, in your main game directory. Download the pack that matches the resolution you play at. (Available: 720p, 768p, 1080p, 1440p, 2160p) Extract/unzip the pack you downloaded. Replace everything in your Movies folder with the extracted files. Do not place them in your Override folder. From here, there are two options to get them to play properly: Use Universal Widescreen (UniWS) to patch your game to the desired resolution. Video tutorial. Using a HEX editor, change the a set of numbers in your game's executable. See below. If you're using the Steam version, you may need to get a replacement executable (which I can't provide here) to be able to open it with the HEX editor or UniWS. Other online guides may have a link to a suitable file. To edit your executable, follow one of these two guides (skipping the parts about upscaling the cutscenes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA5l6HVs4Y4&feature=youtu.be&t=548 https://deadlystream.com/topic/4631-how-to-force-kotor-i-iis-bik-movies-to-play-in-any-resolution/ You will need to change the first and last two values in this set in your exe: 80 02 00 00 75 15 81 3D D8 D1 78 00 E0 01 The new values you should use, per resolution, are: 720p: 00 05 00 00 75 15 81 3D D8 D1 78 00 D0 02 768p: 56 05 00 00 75 15 81 3D D8 D1 78 00 00 03 1080p: 80 07 00 00 75 15 81 3D D8 D1 78 00 38 04 1440p: 00 0A 00 00 75 15 81 3D D8 D1 78 00 A0 05 2160p: 00 0F 00 00 75 15 81 3D D8 D1 78 00 70 08

    Pretty much, what is says, the mod contains higher resolution versions for most of the item icons in KOTOR 1. Namely - Armor, Weapons, Headgear, Shields and other Usables, Droid Gear, Belts, Implants and other miscellaneous items. Feel free to modify and reuse. Giving Credit is appreciated. Would have liked to include crystals too, but oh well. Maybe next update. Needless to say this works best with stuff like: KotOR High Resolution Menus 1.4 by "ndix" - Cheers and Happy Playing!!!

    Hi everyone. Sorry to the mods for the double posting and I hope the screenshots are not to much. So before we start a short update: Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational batch station. So yeah I learned batch a little which helped producing the progress. In order to give an overview: All saber hilts are updated by hilts from @Kaidon Jorn SLM 2.0 mod (I love it!) All credits for the hilt models and textures and icons go fully to him! Update for Kaidon Jorn's: Revan's Tor Saber 1.1 to use the new blades Ambient light for lightsabers 3d models for blade core and inner glow symmetric lightsaber blade planes with a modifed version of @Sithspecter crossguard saber UV layout. (in principle compatible with his unstable textures) black core sabers are possible homogeneous brightness of the blade (no more brighter blades when viewed from the front) all sabers are fully upgradeable (added black core crystal) (Cross guard are updateable but don't have a unique crystal yet.) Now to the to do: Need permission from Sithspecter to use th UVs. I only modified them but he created them so I need his permission. I hope you are all right man! Need Icons for the crossguard saber Test: Someone to test the .uti with the english version of the game (I am only owning the german version) Test the K1 version at some point in the future Hope that some talented texture artist is willing to update my blade textures with good ones Possible update with a full set of unstable saber blades if Sithspecter gives the permission to also use his beautiful animated textures. Known 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. The lightsaber hilts will peak through the blades. (See some posts before. DarthParametric sad it is not possible to fix it.)

    Looking at that, the UVs are uneven, but they are roughly in the right place for the texture. Looks to me like your eye texture is rotated 90 degrees. K1_PFHB04_Eyes_UV_Fix.7z PFHC04 on the other hand is something I can't really fix. If someone else wants to take a crack at fixing the smoothing, be my guest: pfhc04-kotormax.mdl.ascii Otherwise, you'll have to live with the vanilla model for now. Come back in 6 months after bead-v has done his MDLEdit update THAT HE HAS NOW TOTALLY PUBLICLY COMMITTED TO DO WITH NO CHANCE TO BACK OUT OF IT. *cough*

    This mod is made by Pascal Gilcher, and it works on any game which has Depth Buffer access. The mod in the beta stage right now, and only available to patreon users, but it will be available for free for all once its done. This mod adds Ray Traced Global illumination to the screen space(depth buffer) to lit the scene. Global Illumination is consists of 2 things, Indirect shadows(ambient occlusion) and Indirect light. I will post bellow few comparison shots bellow, it worth mention that it is very option heavy, for example you can choose how long your shadows are, or how bright or dark indirect light are, and I choose setting which I felt are right for this game.

    And exactly one month later, Kashyyk is finally done. If I had not decided to add some fancy shenanigans that would've taken much shorter but I like the result even though you can't really see much of the skybox. And here's the entrance to the Wookiee village that you can actually see now (that's what was taking so long to get right). And finally, the usual render of just the skybox: Not sure what I'll work on next. The only big one still missing is Dxun and then there are some other skyboxes that still need little tweaks but I'm getting very close to actually finishing the vanilla skyboxes

    View and export Odyssey Engine proprietary texture formats. A lightweight, somewhat quick viewer for textures in TPC format, or the proprietary header DDS format used in Aurora and its descendants. Also provides a capability to export to TGA, which is useful when you find images that won't convert via any other tool. The viewer aspect is a bit of an afterthought, as for the longest time this was just where I tested my TPC=>TGA conversion code. However, over time, I found myself wanting a simple viewer that could preview a lot of images at once, so this happened. The application is cross-platform, available for macOS and Windows. The app is written in javascript, built on Electron using three.js. ============================================================ How do I set it up? Windows: Download the '-installer' file, unzip the 7z package, run tgaview Setup <version>.exe Mac: unzip the package, move tpcview.app to /Applications, run it * This is not a signed application, so you have to do whatever is required to run non-MAS applications on your MacOS version. The application provides file associations for TPC & DDS files. Hopefully the DDS association will not override any you may already have for non-proprietary DDS files. ============================================================ How do I use it? Viewing Drag files in. They should show up. The files you drag in fill the window in a list that generally resembles the file input order. They all show at once, so there's a moderate memory requirement around loading many files at once. For example, loading the 5210 TPC files from TSL takes 2.25G memory on my machine, your mileage will vary. Mouse over images to get info about them in the window's title bar. Click images to toggle scaling the image to fit the window and viewing the information about them in the info panel at the bottom of the window. Double click the background of the window to clear all loaded images. Exporting Use modifier keys while dragging in order to get Export as TGA functionality. A description of the export activity you are requesting shows up in the info panel at the bottom while you are dragging. Export will occur while the file is being loaded. You cannot export already open images without dragging them in again. Files are exported into same directory as original TPC files being dragged, THEY WILL OVERWRITE EXISTING TGA FILES WITHOUT WARNING. When a TPC file is exported to TGA, a TXI file will also be generated if the original TPC file contained such information. When adding alpha blending value to TXI output, only non-1.0 values will be added (as 1.0 is considered default). ============================================================ Features View TPC format 32bpp, 24bpp, and 8bpp compressed and uncompressed images View Aurora proprietary DDS format 32bpp and 24bpp compressed images Export to TGA Export TXI files containing the texture extension information from TPC files Export all detail levels (mipmaps) present in original image file (can help debugging image compressors) Add an alpha blending value from the TPC header into exported TXI file outputs, i.e. '# alphablending 0.67' File association for TPC and DDS formats with provided file type icons

    Well glad you like it! Things like wind & vegetation effects would be certainly cool but probably not possible... However, filling the skyboxes with numerous objects would simluate variety to some degree. Dantooine btw. is done with Naboo in mind: Mod: For the Crystal cave im still thinking about emulating the shimmering effect on the rocks here: Still WIP:

    DESCRIPTION This is an HD reskin of our cryptic mentor, Kreia! The textures for her body and head are now 2048x2048, and utilizes manually-upscaled edges and photographed textures. I consistently checked my work against the 3D model to ensure there were no texture seams. I even added an environment map to allow Kreia's metal braids and eyes to shine, similar to her incarnation the beta version of TSL. I made sure to remain as faithful to the original texture as possible while adding a few details of my own. INSTALLATION Drop the .tga and .txi files into the Override directory of you SWKotOR2 installation folder.

Feel free to include this mod in modpacks so long as you credit me and link back to the original download page.

    I just cannot stop myself from tweaking stuff. So while preparing skyboxes for and doing the final renders, I reworked K1 Korribans colors. Not because the old ones were bad but they strayed quite a bit from vanilla, making a seamless blend much harder. So I tuned them closer to vanilla and thus got a way better blend and overall look. Here's what it looks like now (final high quality renders and correct colors): And the old version with low quality test renders:

    And that's a wrap! (Or at least almost) So I started the final renders in full quality. The results are amazing if I may say so myself, but check for yourself (click on the images to see them in full size): Apart from doing all the render work, there are still some small things to fix and Telos to finish. For the latter I need to decide whether to go with the lightning or not and I also want to tweak the clouds some more. And then there are the mod skyboxes I want to create. Most of those should be pretty straightforward but a few will need more work. Among those is M4-78 which is also the one I started with. Here's what it currently looks like. The sky is working pretty well already but the buildings are obviously still missing. Let me know what you think.

    Jolee and Juhani done (barring possible future tweaks). Still Bastila's to go. I also should try a few different brown variations for compatibility with the 100% Brown option of the main cloaked robes mod, but I'm not sure what to do with those yet, might save it for a future update.
