  1. For what little input I can suggest, my plan for Yavin 4 in Kotor in my head was to just use ported Dxun modules Thor110 provided and do the planet kinda in reverse. Using repurposed TSL modules in kotor as 'new' levels feels like the modern equivalent of just reskinning old Kotor modules. If you could get permission from the animator, you basically already have the Yavin IV Ebon Hawk animations made. IDK what you'd do for the temple hangar, here maybe get creative and imply it landed somewhere off screen like how it works for the Yavin Station in the vanilla game. You work your way from all the Mandalorian Base (abandoned military settlements around the temple), go through the two main jungle areas (remove the original TSL Ebon Hawk at the end of the first one), go the the temple exterior of Exar Kun (Freedon Nadd's modules) and fight a spirit of Exar Kun inside his (Nadd's) tomb or something. For some variety, the weapons caches could instead lead to a hidden modern Sith Base or something that's being used for... nefarious deeds or something. The Holocron toolset lets you create custom Sith bases, right? That could add some extra variety and more quests. This is just some brainstorming I had on a rainy day. I'm also a big fan of the cut Kotor modules, the cut Kashyyyk level and the cut Tatooine cave would work good for some kind of story relevance, the latter especially towards providing more hints about the Infinite Empire or Rakata If you include the weapons cache with the droids (it feels so out of place I'm almost convinced it's just a repurposed old Tatooine Anchorhead module), combining all Dxun modules, a new Sith base and those two cut modules, that's 8 or 9 modules, something like that. On par with planets like Kashyyyk and Malachor in terms of length maybe.
  2. I would absolutely love if this could be uploaded as a modders resource for either Kotor 1 or 2 Sithspector is making everything from scratch so this wouldn't be part of his mod. It would be a good module to tinker around with
  3. Those animated flags at the beginning must've been a pain to get right! Such a subtle detail but probably one of the most painstaking ones
  4. Yet another mod from WildKarrde that I never knew I needed, but will never remove from my override folder. well done, as always
  5. This is all so incredible, I never thought this would be possible. I'm curious, how well does the HK50 factory play now? I know I've seen old gameplay builds where cheats were used on XBOX to go to the cut HK50 Telos modules. They were mostly complete, just with text issues and missing dialogue strings, etc
  6. Thank you so much for editing the appearance of the Leviathan doors, the new unique variant you provided is miles better and helps make the area feel more original.
  7. I thought that particular bug was familiar thanks for the link!
  8. Very good point, I should've also mentioned that. Iirc years ago this problem was maybe more complex than the utc file and idk what I did to fix it, guess that's why I forgot to mention the need to use an older save anyway, not like it matters since its required anyway And yeah I don't even bother going through the proper steps with him anymore lol I just try to do whatever to help
  9. I swear this happened to me once. I think I fixed it, but it was a long time ago. Do you have any UTC files in your override with her name? Maybe try deleting it. Check to see if you have any files that are scripts named after "kor36", that's the module name for the Valley of the Dark Lords map you're in. Delete and backup anything that looks suspicious If you're not able to fix it, just take the L on this quest and load an older save prior to starting this quest, or just let her keep the holocron
  10. Have to say, this has been immensely convenient for me. I've been dabbing in the BOS modules in the Holocron Toolset and I suck at remembering the modules so I can load them in-game.
  11. If you use the brotherhood of Shadow mod, what happens if the keep Sera Degana with you all the way to meeting Bastilla on Lehon and add her to your party via the dark ending? Bastila and Sera use the same character select slot.

      Shouldn't she use Juhani's character slot? Or does this assume you've killed Bastila? Because in a Dark Side playthrough the chances of killing Bastila are lower than killing Juhani. Usually. Depending on what you are doing.

      To answer the question in regard to party slots, you cannot add an NPC to a slot that is already filled. The script will simply fail. If it was supposed to perform additional functions after trying to add the NPC, then those will probably break. One would hope that some failsafes were built into the script to avoid that, but you'd have to look at the source.

  12. IDK if this is what you're referring to, but I use ERFedit to open MOD files But besides that, couldn't all the warp codes for each Kotor module be found online?
  13. It's been a while since I did a full light side playthrough on Kotor 2, but I was wondering how feasible it would be to make a mod where the cutscene showing Traya being thrown into the Trayus pit would play at the end of the light side ending? IIRC it's only shown on the dark ending

    I always thought it was fitting for both endings.

      Should be a simple script edit, though you may also need some DLG editing to have it make sense. Although from memory even in the DS ending the tossing her into the pit thing kind of comes out of nowhere.

  14. That's so nice of Trask to visit his Sith grandpa in the intergalactic Nursing home

    TSL MP3 Player

    Very cool idea and I'm definitely gonna use this, but I'm curious about something. Is there a particular reason for the 25 slot limit? Was it just out of personal preference or was there an actual limit you had to deal with when making this mod?
  16. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the future of AI generated voices can do for Kotor

     

  17. I thought all Kotor 1 player models were already included in Kotor 2, even if not used? Is that not the case?

      That's interesting, thanks for clarifying.

      The question popped up after seeing the latest topic about porting Juhani to TSL, I always thought those player models were already there.

      A bunch of heads got remodelled/re-uv'd, others just got outright replaced, so it's a bit of a mixed bag as to what remains. The most well known example is mullet man being turned into one of the Hispanic male heads.

  18. So you just want the model and texture edits in the NPC overhaul mod that change the Sith Officers, but not the rest of the stuff in the mod?
  19. calm down its alright nobody hates you here, we're just trying to figure out what you want Do you just want the Sith Officers with the new uniforms in multiple colors? Or do you want every single Sith Officer to have the new uniforms but only in white? Or do you want every single Sith Officer to have the new uniforms but only in white and with Saul Karath's head (the officer in the screenshot) The screenshots he provided are the preview pics on the K1 NPC overhaul mod page, they're not his. That certainly did add to the confusion at first, I'll admit.
  20. I'm so proud of what this community can come together to create
  21. That's really cool! I know we had a few custom Mass Effect weapon models made for Kotor, they fit quite well.
  22. You can either get Kotor 2 via Steam, which supports resolutions the original game did not have (including 1440p and 4K) or you can play it on the original release or the GOG release, both of which will require external software/modding to get it to support 1440p because games back then rarely even had 1080p resolution. For mods, the restored content mod is very straight forward. The hak pad mod should be installed after it. If you're using the Steam version of the game and those are the only 2 mods you're going to use, just turn on these mods via the Steam workshop, no involved installation needed. I believe the hak mod is on the Steam workshop. If you're using a version not from Steam, install the restored mod first, It's been a while but I believe the installer is very straight forward. As for the other mod, I think you just have to copy the files from that into the override folder in the Kotor 2 main folder.
  23. I think I found the inspiration for your mod nice lol
  24. Have you seen this yet? It replaces most* of the Sith Assassin's quarterstaffs with lightsaber pikes/staffs. I say most because, although its been a while since I used this, I believe there are some instances where it does not replace them. Or do you mean the Kotor 2 version of the Force Pike? Force Pikes can mean a lot of things in all of Star Wars canon, I've seen them as weapons with lightsaber blades at the end and some without.
  25. This is going to sound like a really dumb question, but does Kotor work the same on modern AMD GPUs compared to Nvidia ones? The games are really picky about which hardware they like, but I mostly remember that for older hardware giving me a hassle with AMD and Kotor when compared to Nvidia. Lots of visual bugs.

      Apologies for the late reply, but I took your advice and decided to wait a little bit longer. I'm getting a RTX 3060 TI for a roughly 20% discount which is... msrp lol but the normal price for these things is 500 and I'm paying 400 bucks 

      I went back and forth between thinking Kotor's incompatibilities would be worth the cheaper price with AMD, but then I remembered that the stealth effect is tied to Frame Buffer Effects and disabling that make stealth look beyond immersion breaking. I don't even use the Stealth skill and I hate it. One garbage texture issue all but sealed the deal.

      Well that and Nvidia's drivers just seem much better in the long run and I think it'll be a better long term investment. Thanks for your advice! I was also considering the A770, but that video and some additional research made me realize that Intel needs some more catching up to do that I don't want to be a part of.

      Just note that nVidia are deliberately holding off on releasing lower tier 4000 series cards in order to clear the backlog of 3000 inventory, so that 3060 will drop further in the coming months. I would definitely suggest holding off on any card purchase right now unless you absolutely require one.

      My free time is basically going to get cut in half in a few months if not weeks from now for work and school related reasons anyway so I'm trying to squeeze out what enjoyment I can get. Months from now, knowing I could've saved an extra $50 or even $100 bucks will sting slightly but it won't be a big deal. I just want time to use the thing.

      $400 was also the cheapest I could find this card anyway, so it's alright. The average price I'm seeing this right now is $500 and that price was already dropping a decent amount over the past few months.
