  1. If I said you'll get the 1.23.1 fix patch for K1GI within an hour that's now been changed to potentially within 24 hours or more due to my PC shutting off thanks to a black out.

  2. Minor spoilers for Jedi Fallen Order:

     

    Spoiler

    I have seen so many references to Kotor within Jedi Fallen Order from the Shadowlands, Tach, Mykal etc but I swear I think I've just found the remains of G0-T0 in a trash heap.

      No, that's the OT torture droid that G0-T0 was a ripoff of.

      So GOTO's descendant? Or latest edition? I mean GOTO was a Republic droid, and the empire evolved out of the Republic... 

  3. When it is approved, my in-dev mod pack will be available to download:

     

    Imagine the K1 Community Patch if ti was just my mods alone. That is the idea behind the Mini Mod Collection for TSL (Or MMC as I like to call it), every time I make a "mini fix" or "mini restoration" mod which does very little I will upload it to my MMC mod pack so that you, the player, can conveniently install them all at once instead of manually downloading a bunch of separate mods.

     

    Right now, it only contains a single restoration. I plan to post previews to upcoming updates in my WIP thread so that anyone who is interested will know what is coming soon:

     

  4. Should I even bother putting my two cents in on the K1CP drama?

      What drama happened now?

      @Mellowtron11As usual, the trigger was some guy asked "when is the mod coming out".

      The only involvement you should make in cases like that is to report the post.  Because that's spamming and it should be handled by the Staff.  Let the Staff deal with the headaches of enforcement.

  5. Me when I see people still using the 'Bao Dur's Fate: A TSLRCM Add-on' the 2018 April 1st Mod, to this very day and acting surprised as to why it is the way it is.

      @VarsityPuppetYep, I think it just got unapproved and got reapproved when the site updated back in June 2018.

       

      @jc2 I'll offer you the medical assistance I required, you need it more than I if you thought Bao Dur's fate was any good 😉

  6. After a week straight of no Wifi, I have got it back. It feels so good to be writing this out on a keyboard and not my Phone.

     

    Btw, for those waiting, K1 Gameplay Improvement 1.21.0 has been released with some highly requested features.

    1. Mellowtron11

      Mellowtron11

      Always preferred a real keyboard and not a touch screen one as well.

    2. jc2

      jc2

      Yeah, touch screen is less efficient, cannot navigate as quickly or do word searches as easily. The motion required for mouse use, even with low sensitivity is far less than the motion required for touching the screen. 

  7. Unfortunately for me, my Wifi at my house has broken which means my PC cannot connect to the internet.

     

    This may be bad for some of you because I havr an update for the K1 Gameplay Improvement ready to ship out (In the mean time, I will just be fixing whatever bugs I find in it so expect a long list of added/fixed features)

     

    My Steam has also logged me out meaning I can't access Kotor 2 at all (Kotor 1 is fine as I can use the exe for that) meaning that any Kotor 2 mods I was making will be put on hold.

      You can't pay in offline mode?

    3. N-DReW25

      N-DReW25

      @Sith HolocronI hope to have it fixed during this week, key word "hope".

       

      @HK-47No, Steam has forcibly logged me out and it can't connect to the Steam servers to log me back in. Hence, without the Steam menu to launch K2 I cannot continue my TSL mods for the time being.

       

      @Domino5555Without spoiling it, off the top of my head, expect bug fixes and new NPC variants for Kerriban and Dantooine, modified cutscenes on Dantooine, bug fixes on Taris, restored content on Dantooine, new robes, modifications to armors (stats and textures etc), possibly the last Leviathan module.

       

      For future updates, I am working on a heavily requested feature from K1R in the Upper City areas of Taris with a creative K1GI twist to it.

    4. Domino5555

      Domino5555

      I've got an idea for a mod for the Freedon Nadd's Tomb mission: basically, it's this mod 

       just in the Tomb of Freedon Nadd, so the dialogue options for whoever you chose for the party leader would fit the personality of said leader.

  8. Is someone able to make contact with "Danil-ch"? The modder who made the Extended Enclave Mod.

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      How long ago did you try to PM @danil-ch?

    3. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      He last visited on the 24th and he may not have the PMs set up go to his regular email.   All I can suggest is patience.

  9. After several years, and 19 updates, my K1 Gameplay Improvement mod now has over 1000 downloads. 

     

    And what a better way to celebrate with with version 1.20, complete with Taris bug fixes, new Twilek heads from K1EP and even a new Cameo on Korriban!

      @ebmar Thx! As for the Taris Duel Announcer: He is now an NPC you can interact with in the Cantina, kinda like in K1R. But, like with most other cut content I restore, it has my own twist to it.

       

      Occasionally, the camera will focus on the announcer instead of the arena and it will show the announcer actually doing his job. After each match, your fans will converse with you briefly.

      I like it, I will certainly check this mod out some time, but I know it will be some time before I run through kotor again, I still need to finish some modding projects. Congratz with reaching 1k!

    4. N-DReW25

      N-DReW25

      @jc2 By then they may even be more updates released, of course meaning new fun content! I'd recommend installing my mod into a fresh swkotor just so everything works. Feel free to PM me if you want to check compatibility with some mods.

  10. Everyone: We need more people to visit Deadlystream and encourage modding because more than 50% of users use Nexusmods or the Steam Workshop.

      The load times can still be pretty horrendous, that's for sure. But, the game itself has come a long way since its release. I wouldn't exactly call it "great", but I have fun playing the occasional Capital Supremacy and Heroes vs Villains modes on it.

    3. Mephiles550

      Mephiles550

      You know, I honestly think BF2 now is a really good game! I love playing it. The multiplayer is great, the instant action/customizable singleplayer fights are also really fun.

      The campaign story still sucks. But hey, so does the storyline for the new trilogy in general. 😧 Can't blame the game devs really for that.

    4. downloadman1

      downloadman1

      Fair enough dudes glad ya like it! I might have to pick it up for cheap and then force (persuade) my mate to buy it for online fun hha.

      Yeah that campaign looked bad though. Wouldn't touch that. Such a shame

  12. Remember when people used to download a hundred mods that aren't theirs and compile them into one big mod pack and claim it was all their own work?

    Well in 2019, people compile a list of up to 49 mods and upload it to the internet as a "Free to Use Master list" claiming you can use other peoples mods in your own mod as if they where a modders resource. And of course, this was found on the Nexus.

     

    https://www.nexusmods.com/kotor/mods/1266?tab=files

     

    Here is a list of the modders included in this list, keep in mind that there is a 90% chance more than one of your mods were listed:

      The mods used in the list are exclusive to the Nexusmods website which most likely reinforces DPs statement about Nexus users not even knowing what DS even is. In the Nexus' guidelines, is there is no way for anyone to link or mention DS to try to boost newcomers?

      In my credits, I always attribute Deadlystream.com for the community and hosting my mods, so there is a way to indirectly advertise, and, as you can see, nexusmods is not all that well monitered for its size, so we could probably get away with direct advertisement but I, personally, will not do as such.

      If DS wants more traffic then that's Tyvokka's job to resolve. It's not really up to modders to be going on a "recruitment drive".

      I don't see the problems, feels like a pretty good tribute to all those wonderful MS paint reskin mods we got back from around 2004-5. I almost feel nostalgic.

  15. GenoHaradan Legacy 1.0.1 is out!!!

     

    New features include:
    *Atton will always mention Revan whenever you talk to Atton about the GenoHaradan

    *Fixed the installation allowing you to hear Zez-Kai Ell's new restored lines

     

    *When the player is taken to the GenoHaradan base, on top of Atton contacting the player via comlink, Kreia can also telepathically talk to the player before the boss fight

     

    *Dessicus and his goons start off as invisible

     

    *The GenoHaradan secret base is always locked off like in vanilla. This is to prevent the player from entering before or after the big fight

     

    *Visas and Handmaiden/Disciple have been removed from the Ebon Hawk scene being replaced by Goto or Mira/Hanharr who all interact in the scene with some cut/unheard lines.

     

    *Fixed the descriptions of most GenoHaradan items

     

    *Restored an unused texture for the GenoHaradan Mesh Armor

     

    If you play 1.0.1 and you don't experience these new changes or they are bugged please report them as soon as you can!

      @Sith Holocron I'd say personal preferences for now. I don't actually think people have gotten up to the boss fight yet.

       

      @JasonRyderThe finished mod though of course bug fixes, like the one I'm doing now, are still to be expected.

    4. jc2

      jc2

      Very neat! Will have to try this out sometime. 

  17. GenoHaradan Legacy has been released! Though it is far from final.

     

    In 2017, I set out to make Exile007's 2012 "The GenoHaradan" mod compatiable with TSLRCM with my own improvements. During my development, I wrote a new GH plot inside the Jekk Jekk Tarr so I dropped Exile007's mod to make my own.

     

    Recently, I figured if my planned GH mod will take so long to make but Exile007's won't why not finish my work on Exile007's mod and release that for the time being. Essentially, I've made Exile007's GenoHaradan mod compatible with TSLRCM fixing all major bugs and generally improving the mod.

     

    This mod is far from final, if any bugs are found I will release bug fixes and content patches in the coming months and when my own GenoHaradan mod is finished it shall be called "GenoHaradan Legacy Enhancement Project" or "GenoHaradan Legacy EP" (Yes, I went that there).

     

    Go ham with what has been unleashed and leave feedback, advice and criticism

      Oh of course I’ll play it (as soon as I wrap up M4-78EP 1.5 today or tomorrow FYI). I really meant I’ll contuine to follow its progress. After all our good friend here has probably come the closest to putting the GenoHaradan in the game. And since I obviously love Nar Shaddaa ;), this is an amazing development!

      Thanks @N-DReW25 !

      Thor110

      This is good to know, I was going to port all content between games in order to allow for incredibly diverse level creation, stories and Total Conversions set during the Old Republic era or in the Star Wars Universe.

      TheRealDarthRevan

      Impressive. Most Impressive...

  20. Just a reminder: Both my K1 Gameplay Improvement mod 1.15 as well as GenoHaradan Legacy Demo 1.5 has been updated.

  21. Anyone know when "'Mod of the Years" coming?

  22. How far-fetched does the "Zaalbar's *Fur Coat* Robe for TSL" sound?

    1. Show previous comments  1 more
    2. jc2

      jc2

      Sound extremely terrible on a moral/nostalgic level, and, not that great of an idea, on a more practical and lore idea. I don't recall any of star wars using Wookiee fur as coats, except mabye the trandoshans, which are a strange culture. But, it also sounds like a funny idea for a mod, albeit far-fetched. 

    3. N-DReW25

      N-DReW25

      @DarthParametric Does Mira enter the academy before the Exile? Why not make the Exile stumbled upon the Corpse of Hanhar and find the robes that way, though I must admit that doesn't really make much sense as fur coats do need to be *made* and all.

       

      @jc2 Yeah, this idea wasn't an actual Star Wars inspired thing but rather me randomly thinking of this idea and then immediately laughing out loud because of how dark yet funny it is and the fact that it could actually work as a mod. 

    4. Mephiles550

      Mephiles550

      It sounds like an incredible funny idea, but I don't think you could really implement it into the game all that well. A simple reskin of the jedi robe would just look mediocre no matter what, so probably a new model would be effective. I don't think anyone's up for it...

  23. So I am thinking of doing a blog series where I select a piece of cut content from either game that is NOT restored and detail what I believe, using evidence in the game files or my own hypothesis, would of happened in the cut content should it remained in the game. 

    The first blog is "Bao-Dur's return to the Citadel Station"- https://deadlystream.com/blogs/entry/300-bao-durs-return-to-citadel-station/

     

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      I wonder if it might work better as a video series?

    2. N-DReW25

      N-DReW25

      @Sith Holocron I imagine it actually would work as a video series though as these blogs would be somewhat short in a video perhaps I should make up a list of cut content and read all of them out in a video (A video which would obviously show as much cut content and allow the viewer to hear the cut lines of course)

  24. Bad news: My computer can no longer connect to wifi. Good news: every other device I own can connect to wifi and I can still mod Kotor using my PC. This might make updating/uploading mods and replying to PMs hard.

    1. N-DReW25

      N-DReW25

      HK-47

      I was gonna say, Windows is probably being stupid. Your phone should also have tethering capability, so you can use it's connection to the wi-fi and still be fine. I intended to post this when I saw yours, but I forgot about it.
