  1. View File SEM - Super Enhanced Mod Main Mod's Original Review on Filefront: [spoiler[Let me start out by saying this mod is not for the faint of heart. If you're not an experienced player, and by experienced I mean you're insanely good at the game, you won't want to get this mod. Why? You'll die a miserable death, likely early on in the game. Now that I've completely scared everyone off, let's get to the nitty gritty bits of this mod. It's got a lot of changes, and veteran players should really enjoy them. I can't go over all of them, because there are too many plus Shem wants to leave you with some surprises (they're good surprises, by the way), so here's an overview: Lightsabers: The basic premise of a lightsaber is it is a beam of energy that curves back on itself to create a blade. Now how could a blade of pure energy be less powerful than a slab of metal? Shem wondered the same thing. Sabers have been enhanced to do more realistic amounts of damage, plus they will add a +10 modifier to your blaster deflect skill. Base damages for both games are around 40-50. OMG UNBALANCED! No, not at all. As I go along you'll see why it's not unbalanced. Blasters: How often does a stormtrooper take six blaster bolts before going down? Never! They're down on one shot usually, aren't they? Blaster fire is now beefed up to be deadly. This is a good thing and a bad thing. Bad thing - if you get shot, you're in trouble. Good thing - the same is true vice versa, plus that +10 modifier to blaster deflect will make you a lean mean blaster blocking machine, and if you deflect those bolts back at your enemies they're still beefed up and will make for a quick and easy kill. Armor: The idea that wearing a heavy set of armor will block you from using the Force is rediculous. The Force extends beyond such silly physical limitations, and Shem agreed with this as well. As a result, armor will not longer restrict you from using the Force, regardless of what it is. Tired of being 'Forced' to wear those Jedi robes when you'd rather be off galavanting across the dune sea in Calo Nord's armor? No problem. Armor also doesn't penalize your dexterity any more, although I'm not quite sure that's more realistic than the way it originally was. This mod makes several changes to pieces of Shem's older mods, so if you are prompted to overwrite any parts of any of Shem's other mods you may feel free to do so without hesitation. If you're a hardcore player I'd definitely recommend giving this mod a try. Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future. ~Inyri Also you will need the Ultimate Sound Mod for this to work properly. Make sure that is installed first before you install this mod and let the baseitems.2da file from this mod overwrite the one from the Ultimate Sound Mod. If you're not interested in that mod, you will still need to download it and get the cb_ls_powerup.wav, cb_ls_powerup1.wav, cb_ls_powerup2.wav, cb_ls_powerdown.wav, cb_ls_powerdown1.wav, and cb_ls_powerdown2.wav files. That way the double-bladed and short lightsabers make a on/off sound. Addon's Original Review on Filefront: Malkior's Tweak pack (no Filefront review): An addon approved by Shem that tweaks the grenades, mines and most of the non-humanoid creatures in the game to be up to par with the rest of Shem's work...

  3. File Name: Darth Nihilus Robes File Submitter: Shem File Submitted: 05 Nov 2015 File Category: Mods TSLRCM Compatible: Yes Original Review on Filefront: Sith Lords are so cool, I love the way the game creators and movie directors make them. They are just so evil and awesome looking. A lot of them like Darth Sion, Darth Revan, and even Darth Vader (for the time that they created him in) had awesome looking clothing and were just SO immensely evil. That is the on thing the Jedi never had though, I mean they did look cool but not as cool as some of the Sith Lords. There also were other types of Sith Lords that just looked plain freaky; actually I should say there was one Sith Lord that took that part because really there was only one and that one Sith Lord was Darth Nihilus. He was just so freaky lookin� that he made you think he could beat you with one swipe of his saber, but we all know that is not true. Anyway though speaking of Darth Nihilus lets get into the review. To put it simple this mod that Shem made will let you get Darth Nihilus�s robes in game without having to type a long boring cheat or go through rigorous trials to get it. The robe will show up in the game twice, one on Korriban and once on Dxun. They both will be using a custom icon for these types of robes as an icon and both will have a Datapad which I don�t think will have anything to do with the mod. Needless to say though I am sure this will definitely be a preferred way to get these robes in game. I really have to say Shem this is a very simple but very awesome mod. So really good job. Now to all of you people out there just dying to get you hands on this one of a kind mod... enjoy. Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it.

    File Name: Prequel Sabers File Submitter: Shem File Submitted: 05 Nov 2015 File Category: Mods TSLRCM Compatible: Yes Original Review on Filefront: Here we have a mod that will add the various colour lightsabers to the game. They come in blue, red, green, and purple, white and also just for the people here who download here at kotor2files.com some bonus colours! Now I wont disclose what the new colours are, hehe you'll just have to see for yourself I find the colours to be very much like the ones in the movies, more-so episodes One, Two and Three. The only colour I don't like is the yellow colour. I feel it should be a bit brighter to further extentuate it's power. But none the less these are very well made and add more variation to the defaults. You have a nice eye for detail. Keep up the great work. - JediKilla Click here to download this file

  7. File Name: Exile's Atris-style Robes File Submitter: Shem File Submitted: 05 Nov 2015 File Category: Mods TSLRCM Compatible: Yes Original Review on Filefront: Before we get into the review, we should all give a big hand to mjpb3 and Oldflash for making these robes possible. Now you're wanting to know what I'm talking about, I'm sure. This mod gives a set of playable Atris-style robes for the female Exile. That's right! Those same robes Atris wears. Well, not the same. These robes, a Jedi and Sith version, are brown and black respectively. They also have some very nice stats, but there are quite a few of them so I won't list them here. Just take my word for it that they're handy stats to have. You will receive these robes in normal gameplay when Kreia joins your party. Shem uses his usual wit to come up with a great way to have these puppies drop into your inventory as soon as she joins your party by placing them in Kreia's shield slots. Since this is an incompatible item for that slot, they simply "fall off" right into your inventory! Is that ingenius or what? So yes, you will receive both of these robes, relatively early on, without needing to use cheats. "But I've already started a game!" you might say. That's where cheats or the KotOR savegame editor will come in handy. To use cheats, simply type "giveitem exilef1" for the Sith robes, or "giveitem exilef2" for the Jedi robes. Shem has also made this mod compatible with his own Prequel Style Robes mod. One last goodie is that there are two versions of this mod: one for black females and another for asian/caucasion females, so you won't have to worry about having caucasian hands if you play one of the black female characters! This mod is a must have, as is the original by mjpb3, so if you're looking to spice up your TSL experience for your female character I strongly recommend it. No sense in letting Atris have those cool robes to herself, is there? Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future. ~Inyri Click here to download this file

  9. File Name: Prequel-style Robes File Submitter: Shem File Submitted: 05 Nov 2015 File Category: Mods TSLRCM Compatible: Yes Original Review on Filefront: Fans of the prequels should be happy with this very large set of prequel-inspired robes - 28 in all. There are various color combinations to choose from, and Shem has also gone as far as to include customized robes for each trainable (or Jedi) member of your party. Even Bao-Dur has a special "Jedi robe" (armor that acts as a robe, since he can not wear them). The robes have modified stats and come in a pretty wide variety of colors, though the colors seem restricted to something a Jedi might actually consider wearing. Sorry, no Hawaiian robes! Still asking yourself why you should download this mod? Each customized robe has some very good (but not unbalanced) stat bonuses and perks. They are-- Ha, you didn't think I was going to tell you, did you? Go play and find out for yourself! That's half the fun anyway . Just as a note, this is mod is best played starting from a new game if you want the greatest effect as quickly as possible with as few complications as possible. This also contains a fix for older versions for a bug concerning Bao Dur's robe. ~Inyri Click here to download this file

  11. View File Sith Lord Armor Uploader Edit: The mod has been corrected/fixed as of 4/7/2017. I made the installer and only stopped halfway through originally, so I apologize. I never realized it wasn't done, not amongst the other 40+ I had been doing. Original Review on Filefront: Shem breaks out with these functional and elegant robes. Who else could make them look so good? In particular, Atton, M!Exile, Brianna, and Mical look smoking hot. (The all blue on Mikey? Yeah, fits with his hard to corrupt alignment). The chest plate through abdomen looks like it's made of light metal, giving it a look of functional armor. The arms and legs are given full movement with the bodysuit underneath, and an ornamental cape drops off the hips. Just add a lightsaber and watch as the other patrons of the cantina give you a wide berth and the best seats. Again, the only payment a fan writer or artist gets is the feedback, good or ill for their efforts. Suggestions as to improvements will allow them to make more and better mods in the future. -Allronix Submitter Shem Submitted 11/05/2015 Category Mods TSLRCM Compatible

  15. File Name: Kreia's Hood Down File Submitter: Shem File Submitted: 05 Nov 2015 File Category: Mods TSLRCM Compatible: Yes Original Review on Filefront: Ah, Kreia. Wise teacher or corroded hag? Hate to love her or love to hate her, she is one of the most memorable parts of K2. And, as some of you have seen in the KOTOR2 Restoration project teaser, she is capable of removing her concealing hood and revealing herself. Shem's mod allows Kreia to take off that hood when she speaks to Exile, allowing her face to be seen. This will benefit fan writers and artists greatly as we can now get a solid look at her face and hair from various angles. As you can see, Atton may have been right - she is still rather striking. Once again, I do ask that you give feedback for this mod. It's the only payment a fan artist gets, and the more detailed it is, the better the mods we can make in the future.
