    Great textures but it appears this mod is using an old version of the TSL Patcher which is breaking the Missing Settlers quest on Dantooine
  2. Glad to see this was revived. I remembered waiting for years to see this mod come out. @Logan23Do you plan on implementing much of the original game mechanics you mentioned years ago or will this now be changed?
  3. I might be able to test it out on the train ride home from work today. I havent had any problems with any texture mods on android and my override is like 3gb. This would be a first
  4. I didn't think the film was THAT bad, although I am comparing it to TLJ and TFA so there is that.
  5. http://www.jumpstationz.com/ModsArchive/ it is the biggest archive of old mods on the net sadly, I downloaded all of the ones i still use time to time. Thanks for letting us know BTW!
  6. when is jumpstationz Closing? Looks like i will be downloading the mods archive in the next few days πŸ˜‚
  7. So I went to the premier in my country for free. Have to say it was better than TLJ. It wasnt a bad film but wasnt great. Very forgettable. Ian really made the film for me though. But there was alot of unexplained bs that they will probably leave to the extended canon to answer which was disappointing .
  8. if they break ToC, than maybe. Mods operate within a grey area at the best of times. Its just in Apeirons case, it crossed that grey area it was trying to proclaim it was apart off. Plus Apeiron drew far too much attention to itself.
  9. yep, even on redit, I see they are arguing disney is evil for doing this, than someone used bethesda as a good example πŸ˜• Bethesda have shut down their fare share of large mods aswell (normally further in development than this one aswell). It was only a few months ago, they stopped a total conversion of FO3 into the FO4 engine.
  10. I've been away for a week so was surprised to see it finally got a D&C πŸ˜‚Their own dev team admitted to me it was not a mod! Now they are claiming they seeked out legal advice and they said this? Would be interested to hear the Video Game Attorneys point of view on this claim made tbh because even claiming it is a mod doesn't really make it legal (even though it is clearly not a mod). Thinking about it more, using the sound files from the OG game is illegal because even if the game checked for the OG files (which would not be hard to get around, *SIDE RANT* you could also make an argument it would have encouraged more people to illegally download the OG kotor version for the files needed), they would still need to rip the sound files from the game and reuse them in their own version and engine which last time I checked, is against kotors TOS or whatever its called πŸ˜‚
  11. And this is why I pointed out the Dev teams hypocrisy a few months ago: "I've talked to legal console, and they stated that there would be a high chance of us winning the argument, since this is a mod, but the legal fight would take most likely a year(s) and cost around 100k. It's been our internal policy to end production in this scenario" Clearly lying to try and save face. Knew they would try and claim the morale high ground on whichever company D&C them first. IMO, a scumbag move to make. Just admit that you were in the wrong when you claimed it was a "mod" which made it safe in the first place. P.S For anyone claiming its a mod, let me show you the definition of a mod and a definition of a video game remake: MOD: "The term mod is derived from the act of modifying a game. To mod a game is to create custom levels, objects, characters, or even unique or stand-alone game from an existing game engine. Many games come with an editor that allow for easier modding. A person who mods a game is called a modder." WIKI DEFINITION OF MOD: "A mod (short for "modification") is an alteration by players or fans of a video game[1] that changes some aspects or one aspect of a video game, such as how it looks or behaves. Mods may range from small changes and tweaks to complete overhauls, and can extend the replay value and interest of the game". VIDEO GAME REMAKE: "A video game remake is a video game closely adapted from an earlier title, usually for the purpose of modernizing a game for newer hardware and contemporary audiences and is coded from scratch".
  12. Movies should not not rely on third sources to provide us with important information in general. That was always my biggest criticism of TPM aswell (A movie I personally enjoy). Saying "Because a comic showed us this isnt a plothole" doesnt make the movies story or writing any better.
  13. On Hoth, were they not sending 2 ships at a time to ensure one was getting through? Isnt that a sacrifice? Werent the speeders sent out to delay the ATATs so that the vessels could escape sacrificing their lives so the rest could make it? Didnt Han and Leia literally go on a suicide mission on endor? No sacrifices hah?
  14. It's nice to see one member of the team trying to address these persistent issues as no one else has even tried to. I have been blocked of off streams in the past questioning them about some of these details. I do feel that the website needs to be updated though. The amount of people claiming the project to be 100% legal or the people that say lucasarts gave them permission (even though lucasarts no longer exists 🀣) is ridiculous. I for one think sniggs idea is great and that your team should at the bare minimum have some dialogue with the fans of Kotor. Obviously this is not your fault @Minimpoun as you are new to the team. But the underlying issues are still present
  15. I havent really got any videos of what I mean but ill try my best. Ive always pictured Revan as having a very strong and powerful voice, like that of a leader. He speaks as though he always knows what hes doing, even if he does not. He inspires his allies and makes his enemies lose faith in the way he talks (sort of like Hux does when he uses their death planet thingy on TFA, just not as sinister) (This could honestly apply to both a male and female version). I think Revans voice has to sound more youthful, like 25-mid 30s) as for the accent, i am not overly sure. The exile however, he doesnt speak with that same ferocity as revan, his voice isnt very strong or powerful. Hes more careful about what he says and he isnt always overly sure of his actions, even if he believes he is. He's more of a follower than a leader. and the way he talks should reflect this. His voice doesnt have to inspire people because the connections he makes through the force allow him to do that (again, could apply to both itterations). The exiles voice sounds alot older, they have been through alot and their voice should reflect this, maybe 30-40s. Again, im unsure on the accent tbh. I think the accent is less important than the way their voices are portrayed I hope this helps I may look for some videos today if I have the time
  16. I mean apeiron anounced the project and only gave us some concept art. 2 years on and all we have seen is some of the environments in a semi completed state.
  17. The other big issue i see if a C&D is given is that instead of the fanbase blaming the devs for lying, they will rant on about how it was done illegally by EA/Lucasfilm/Disney
  18. IP laws are pretty clear. This is not a mod no matter what people insinuate as it is not a modification of the original game, but a new game that is using material from the old game. Saying it will need k1 to install is very dubious to say the least. And using this to say its 100% legal is even more dubious when the dev outright states they do it to give people hope. Other, similar projects have been shut down by lucasfilm/disney in the past 2 years because they considered these projects as competition to their own titles and may have had a chance of taking players away from their own ips.
  19. Ill post a link in here for those who wont see the post.
  20. I actually could not believe that one of Apeirons developers admitted that to me after they have spent the last year convincing people that it is 100% legal. Im sure they didnt expect me to take snippets of that and post it over here and on redit Edit: can mods merge this with the main apeiron chat
    The holograms look far better than their vanilla counterpart. A permanent keeper in the override file 😁
  21. 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 πŸ˜‚
  22. Agreed, I still getting used to the new layout of Deadlystream 🀣 However, change is good. Its good to see both the /r kotor community and DS community being integrated together.
