  1. View File Weapons & Armor, Uncut ...Expand your arsenal with the newly unearthed lost artifacts of the Old Republic... Welcome! I gladly present this mod which restores nearly all the equipable items cut from KotOR due to some reason or another. Most of them are pretty standard fare, but they no doubt bring even more variety to the game's inventory and are absolutely full of flavour, I'm sure you restoration afficionados out there will appreciate it. While the items themselves are official, come up by BioWare, their implementation was done at my discretion, though I did take care to follow developer notes wherever I could find them. Some small features have been brought over from Misc. Nitpicks (visit to see details) INSTALLING Run the TSLPatcher and choose between one of the two options, the default package or the "Plus" package. The latter includes some tasteful (disclaimer: bias) changes done by me and more restorations of items I deemed useless or redundant (ie: Teta's Royal Band). I should warn you to choose your option carefully because you'll only be able to switch it after uninstalling the previous one clean, which for most mods with module injections, if not done right away with the proper backups will turn from a tedious matter to a near impossible one. In most cases this can only be cleanly achieved though a reinstall of the game. I also recommend installing my own K1 Armor Nitpicks or JC's Mandalorian Armor for K1 (these are compatible with each other by the way) as they will compliment this mod well. All icons were designed to look good alongside vanilla ones and I won't be doing high resolution versions for them. If the authors of any HD icon packs want to include icons for this mod they're hereby allowed to, I'll link them here. Ignore any warnings about skipping files during installation, that's normal patcher procedure. Errors are not, however. COMPATIBILITY "Weapons & Armor, Uncut" is compatible with the K1 Community Patch but I wouldn't advise to install it alongside the Restoration Project due to overlaps. If using the "Plus" install then any mod that changes any .uti files inside this tslpatchdata folder will not be compatible as I went for hard overwrites. I can't vouch for virtually every mod in existence (were you expecting me to do that?) but all my other stuff is compatible. This mod only works with the English version of Knights of the Old Republic. I did not use string references anywhere, but if there is enough demand for localization support then I will redo it that way and leave the translation to the interested party.

  3. What's up people, just passing by to announce, to anyone that's interested, that I'm restoring all the equipable weapons, armor etc. that were cut from the final release for whatever reason (around 30 give or take). This isn't a grand or ambitious project by any means, I don't even think it warrants a WIP thread, but lately I haven't been feeling like modding kotor anymore. I do get sick of looking at those unfinished mod folders however, so by posting this here it's almost like a promise to keep. Planning to send this thing out this month! Also yay hype.

    Misc. Nitpicks

    Saul Karath and The One don't drop their npc-only weapons anymore. A bit counter nature for most to intentionally gimp themselves with this change, I know it's off putting, but it bothered me since they were obviously not supposed to drop.
  5. He runs his brother's shop if you arrest him @todevuch Can't say I'm qualified enough to tinker with the random loot system, but I could be able to do something about the salvager trader. Don't remember her selling any unique crystals though, the only ones that come to mind are the Hurrikaine and Qixoni.

    K2 Armor Nitpicks

    Many thanks StellarExile! Two sets of militia armor are currently obtainable when you gain access to the Khoonda building garage. The mando armor is a mix: the marine colored leather/mesh underlay is a heavily edited redrob's while the front light cyan pieces are purely his (edit: also the side purse). The rest was just me. I'm not sure I'm certain how it's pronounced either, my best bet is a series of *oinks*.

    K2 Armor Nitpicks

    I always differentiate when I'm doing something another modder has done before me, otherwise it would be redundant (not to mention sleazy on my behalf). I try to refrain from changing stuff too much, but the Yusanis shield icon was a tad overused. And the Beast-Rider flight armor, as you know, was just a lousy combat suit so I couldn't help it. You would be right. The .mod inclusion was just to be on the safe side, bandwidth not being too much of an issue these days I figured it was worth the trade off to have a bigger file size but being able to provide to users who don't use TSLRCM. Also, you *did* make those replacements (you would know after all), it was me that did a quick glance at it and just saw the docking bay guy. Interesting decision to involve the beast-riders into the Onderon conflict by the way, the beast handler change was the most tasteful one could possibly do to integrate them in. I think it would be pretty cool to have a mod to feature them more heavily, I really appreciated their faction in the ToJ comics. Perhaps have some inner conflict between them, some Beast-Riders taking the loyalist side since they're not particularly fans of the Sith. Well, they're not D-package like, I just restored two unused icons from CON 12 and 14 classes while also giving some much needed variety to others with leftover k1 icons. As for the militia armor I just went with the most hassle-free route to be honest. Oh there is one thing I forgot to change also, the Reinforced Fiber Armor and Echani Shield Suit are swapped in value, I'll leave that for the next update.

    K2 Armor Nitpicks

    Hey thanks for the feedback! I was aware of most of those mods, there are some differences in how they are implemented however: Hassat Hunter restored the armband as-is and placed it in the Telos academy while I gave it a new vanilla-like icon and placed it on the Hawk hidden compartment. Both your mod and mine provide a partial restoration to the beast-rider suit as in appearance and descriptions were come up by ourselves and not Obsidian (And stats in my case). Besides the difference in where the suit is obtained, your mod also restores other items which I don't intend to and alters the Beast-Rider on the docking bay. Our choices for the d-package implant variations are different and I also restore and modify icons for other implant categories, and fix the cardio package and pheromone packages being swapped in usefulness (and price) as far as the loot and crafting systems are concerned. The militia armor can be found inside a new box in the Khoonda building garage and the pazaak card can be bought from Dendis Dobo on Telos. I originally wanted for it to be bought on Onderon (missable), but I couldn't find a way to place it that satisfied me without going into too much work just because of it, so I gave up on that for now. Might change it again later though...
  9. Being a restored content mod, the tslrcm crew saw fit to restore all the cut miner items, the heavy mining laser too. I won't comment on that decision. I checked again just to be sure and I didn't find a fixed zabrak grip or energy cell drops, besides the cheat plasteel cylinder. There's something going on with your install or mods because fully upgradeable short swords are neither vanilla or TSLRCM, guaranteed.
  10. Yes, it was about when I caught Aleema Keto's robes on sale that I decided to do something about it. Also a save is required before first talking to Dendis, you might add.

  13. I never played on Xbox, so I can only attest for the PC version. In vanilla you can find a vibroblade off a corpse in first the room after the medical bay, it has been replaced with the vibrocutter in TSLRCM. Short swords are only able to be upgraded at the hilt and edge with the cell slot greyed out, you can't even try to insert one. Random loot in Peragus is purposedly toned down, but I know JC confirmed that weapon upgrades of all types were dropped for some reason which he then removed it in his loot fixes. You can always find several droid items, a Bio-restorative Underlay Mk I, a Basic Ionite Edge and a pair of Insulated Gloves. I've been scoping the placeables and I can't find any mention of a Zabrak Grip and I only came across an Improved Energy Cell inside a cheat cylinder which doesn't spawn in the actual game.
  14. Those issues seem to be on your end, the short swords have always been upgradeable at the edge and grip only, and the miner's uniform only accepts robe upgrades even with TSLRCM. The vibrocutter is a mining tool, it can't be taken apart and upgraded with military-grade cells and stuff in the same way a mining laser can't be upgraded with power cells and gun chambers. They look like a vibroblade and blaster pistol respectively because noone bothered to make extra models for them. I'm sure a guidon beacon isn't supposed to be a quarterstaff either. Also any upgrades you aquire at Peragus are completely random.
  15. Getting work done aka not being a lazy bastard. feelsgoodman.

  16. It seems like my file's screenshots aren't being displayed by upload order anymore, as far as i could tell it always worked like this before. Something changed?

  19. If it's a different take on a concept someone else already made a mod for I guess you've got the green light if you do it all from scratch. For example I was thinking of applying a transparent mask to Ajunta Pall's vanilla appearance for those who want him to look more ghostly but still retain the original dark jedi model, and I would have never thought of it if silveredge and VP hadn't done it before. On this mod alone there have been others before this that changed Ajunta Pall's blades and N-Drew has fixes for the red and sapith crystals. I'm confident I can say those weren't supposed to drop just by taking a look at the labels, tags, properties and all other specific utis present in the same module and how they're used. You also get a feel for BioWare's naming conventions when you've inspected every single .uti in the files :P
  20. Never buy an acer laptop folks. Thought my buddy here was done for.

  21. Hey Salk thanks, I'm glad you appreciate it! I have more coming along, nearly finished, for a second there I thought they would never see the light of day after a scare I got yesterday with some faulty RAM. Why not release your stuff by the way? The One and Saul Karath don't drop their module specific weapons anymore, the latter being replaced by the general assassin pistol. Bandon's saber only drops in the Xbox version so I didn't need to do anything there.
  22. View File Honest Merchant (TSLRCM) Brothers Dendis and Samhan Dobo decided to set up shop on the Telos citadel station. While Samhan opted to aquire his merchandise from dubious channels, Dendis kept himself, his inventory, and his prices, modest and ethical. This is why after TSLRCM I find it hard to believe that Dendis Dobo runs an honest but struggling business when I check his wares and see top-of-the-line gear and belongings of famous Jedi on sale. This mod was quickly whipped up to revert his store to it's original state. It goes without saying you should install this only if you're using TSLRCM. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ KTool..........................................................Fred Tetra TSLPatcher.....................................................stoffe & Fair Strides DeNCS..........................................................JdNoa & Dashus Submitter TK-664 Submitted 06/13/2021 Category Mods TSLRCM Compatible Yes
