  1. Since the release of v.0.1.6 this program has become my main tool for editing 2da files. It is simple, fast and effective. After using it extensively, I noticed one minor usability issue: the program allows to open several tabs and several copies of the program, also not closed in the previous session tabs are restored at startup. But there doesn't seem to be any way to see where the opened file is located on the hard drive. So, when I'm working with multiple versions of the file at the same time (vanilla, modified by me, version from another mod), it is very easy to get confused. Therefore, I would like to request an ability to see filepath of the currently opened file in the next update. For example, at the bottom of the window (where the word "Ready" is displayed) or via the context menu of the tab. Thanks for all your work, @VarsityPuppet!
  2. I've seen Attribute, class, alignment restrictions, feat requirements for items, but nothing about character level or exp requirements. I'm not knowledgeable enough about K1 modding, but even if it's really not possible to set min Character Level requirement, there are some alternate solutions (not elegant, but better than nothing). For example, 1. Create two versions of Darth Bandon's Fiber Armor, one with Mind-Affecting bonus and one without (this one will replace vanilla Bandon's armor). 2. Add a new dialog for T3-M4 about the modification of available armor. The current player's level will be checked in the conditional script of the dialog. 3. If player's level requirement is met, old Darth Bandon's Fiber Armor will be replaced with the new one (with Mind-Affecting bonus when using Mesh Underlay).
  3. To create upgrades, yes. For that you need to set the value of the row "level" in itemcreate.2da and itemcreatemira.2da files. Then upgrades will appear in the creation list of workbench only after reaching the required level of the character.
  4. Over the years, a large number of mods have been created for TSL. While most of the useful and/or still relevant mods are available in the Download sections of DeadlyStream and Nexus (currently most popular Kotor I-II modding resources as far as I know), some of them are not and thus have become lesser-known, rare or even obscure. I have seen many old mods of varying quality and made notes about interesting ones in the list-reminder. This list can be useful for people, who are tired of their builds and want to see something “new”. In the recent past, several mods have been rediscovered or recreated (Xcom's Grenades Mod, Blue GUI for TSL), so I won’t mention them. Also, I think mods like Ultimate Saber Mod (USM) or Dark Harbinger are fairly well known, so I’ll focus on more obscure works. 1. "TSL Improved Loading Screens" by SpaceAlex This mod is similar to Concept Loading Screens 1.1 mod by Darth InSidious, but unlike that mod, when there is no appropriate concept art, original loadscreen is replaced by processed high-resolution screenshot. I think these two mods will work best in tandem: some concept art loadscreens are present only in Darth InSidious work, while others are in SpaceAlex mod, some concept art looks better in the first mod, some looks sharper in the second. In particular, I can highlight load_105PER, load_205TEL, load_512OND, load_901MAL, load_EBO1, load_EBO3, load_EBO4, load_EBO5, load_EBO6. Note: you need to rename files load_EBO1.tga, load_EBO2.tga, …, load_EBO6.tga to load_001EBO.tga, load_002EBO.tga, …, load_006EBO.tga for them to work. Screenshots: Link: https://www.moddb.com/games/star-wars-knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/addons/tsl-improved-loading-screens 2. "Force Fashion I" and "Force Fashion II" by Jonathan7 These mods replace robes that use padawan model and add additional based on movie designs, KOTOR and Tales of the Jedi comics. They also give new robes to companions and jedi masters. It was stated that these mods are incompatible with TSLRCM, mainly due to party .dlg files for acquiring robes after they become jedi. But I guess, it should be possible to simply drop skin files to Override folder and obtain them via cheat codes (Jonathan7 kindly provided all item codes in readme file). There are many interesting robes to choose from; my favorites are Anakin RotS, Obi-Wan ANH, Luke RotJ, Nomi Sunrider, Malak’s Jedi Robe and Darth Sidious RotS robes. Note: item code for Brown Leather Robe (Sylvars Robe) is a_robe_25, not a_robe_55. Screenshots: More screenshots: https://web.archive.org/web/20110927123930/http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Force_Fashion_II;104261x#2124606 Links: https://www.gamefront.com/games/knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/file/force-fashion and https://www.fileplanet.com/archive/p-67260/Star-Wars-Knights-of-the-Old-Republic-II-Force-Fashion-II-Mod 3. "RGB 6 short robes pack" by RGB This may be one of rarest TSL mods (that are worth seeking), it seems to disappear completely from the Internet and unlike other RGB’s works, it wasn’t saved by wayback machine. Which is a shame, because these short tunics skins have a great design and are well made, plus they give interesting bonuses. However, thanks to the amazing community members the mod has been rediscovered. The readme file didn’t have any redistribution instructions, so if you need it, message me on DeadlyStream or Discord. Alternatively, there is Tunics for JS-ZS Armors mod by 90SK. Screenshots: More screenshots: http://web.archive.org/web/20060511130116/http://www.pcgamemods.com/mod/12805.html 4. "The Mandalorian Knights" by The Source (MacCorp.) Adds a small shop near Tienn Tubb on Nar-Shaddaa that sells good-looking shiny heavy armors. The shop is nicely decorated, although new merchant has only bare minimum of dialogs (so don’t hope for extensive backstory or sidequests there). A curious detail: from a certain angle, “The Mandalorian Infiltrators” female armors resemble costumes from Power Rangers movie (2017) for some reason. Screenshots: Link: https://www.gamefront.com/games/knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/file/the-mandalorian-knights 5. "Malachor V" texture mods by xediixarwarz and OriionZ There are plenty of mods that replace Telos and Harbinger textures with alternate versions, but I have not seen many works that reskin Trayus Academy. In fact, the only released packs I remember are Malachor V 2012 and Malachor V 2013. While some design choices are questionable (didn’t know that sith were fans of pink color), these packs offer a nice variety over boring grayness of vanilla textures. Screenshots: Links: https://www.moddb.com/games/star-wars-knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/addons/malachor-v and https://www.moddb.com/games/star-wars-knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/addons/malachor-v-2013 6. "Lonna Vash Mod" by Sikon With this mod, the player can meet Lonna Vash on Korriban and talk to her without having to visit M4-78. Listed as incompatible on TSLRCM page, but several users confirmed that in reality it just reverts Korriban to pre-TSLRCM state (no HK-50 encounter there and no few restored lines). Link: https://www.gamefront.com/games/knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/file/lonna-vash-mod 7. "Force Power For TSL: Lightsaber Floating" by Darth333 Most of Darth333 mods are available in the Download section on DeadlyStream, but not this one. It adds a new force power that allows to summon floating lightsabers like certain character. In V2.0 the force power upgrades automatically upon usage (although now you can only learn it on Korriban, this will probably happen quite late in the game). Note: Regarding v2.0, I read that due to a bug, only one lightsaber appears after upgrading force power, but there is an instruction from zbyl2: “The mod itself needs a small fix to work as intended though. First of all, install the mod as usual. Then open Spells.2da from your Override folder and find the lines FORCE_POWER_D3_SABER_1 to _3. Remember their line numbers or simply keep the 2da file open. Next, go to the d3_saber_source folder found in the mod file and copy the d3_saber_force.nss somewhere else to edit. (You can also edit the one in the source folder, but I prefer keeping the mod files intact.) Open it using Kotor Tool's text editor or any other editor of your choice and replace 997 with the row number of FORCE_POWER_D3_SABER_1, the two instances of 998 with the row number of FORCE_POWER_D3_SABER_2 and the two instances of 999 with the row number of FORCE_POWER_D3_SABER_3. Once that's done, compile the script and place it in your Override, replacing the script already there.” Screenshots: Links: https://deadlystream.com/topic/7174-request-tsl-floating-lightsaber-force-power/?do=findComment&comment=76772 and https://deadlystream.com/topic/7174-request-tsl-floating-lightsaber-force-power/?do=findComment&comment=77458 8. "Final Touch" by oldflash Calling Final Touch obscure might be inaccurate, but nowadays this mod is rarely mentioned, despite being very famous in the mid-2000s and almost winning the title “Mod of the Year” on LucasForums. Sure, some things from it don’t look as cool as they did 15 years ago, some just didn’t age well, and overall scale of the mod makes it incompatible with major modern projects. However, it can serve as good modder resource (for personal use). What I mean is that experienced user can find files with interesting elements and manually insert them into Override folder. For example, things like new model for remote (https://deadlystream.com/topic/4800-black-reskin-of-bao-durs-remote/?do=findComment&comment=49900), handmaiden model without hood (works with some retextures, Instruction here https://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?showtopic=5498592/#entry69250461), headgear, weapons or reskins of Visas robe (shroud will require manual recoloring if you wish it to match robe’s color). Screenshots: Link: https://www.gamefront.com/games/knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/file/final-touch 9. "Telos Polar Plateau Sidequest 1.2" by GeorgNihilus (aka FrantFire) Adds new sidequest that allows to return to Telos Polar Plateau and Atris’ academy. The mod is well-made: the story isn’t long, but has several possible conclusions, there is new location (though, it reuses existing module), NPCs have animations during dialogues. In version 1.2 the player can actually infiltrate and rob the academy, this would be a good opportunity to use invisibility belt and stealth gameplay, but this is not an option, sadly. There is no reliable info about compatibility with TSLRCM. Files ‘grenn.dlg’ (the dialog from 221TEL) and k_222area_enter.ncs script are likely to conflict with TSLRCM, but even then, they should undo only some changes to Battle of Telos modules (221TEL, 222TEL). Note: version 1.2 has a bug with missing NPC and westar pistol. Since original patch is no longer available, I made ‘custom’ fix. Before the installation of the “Telos Polar Plateau Sidequest 1.2 mod” copy files "changes.ini" and "ff_skeleton2.utp" from the fix into the folder "tslpatchdata" of the mod, replacing existent files. Then install mod as usual. Screenshots: Link: https://en.ds-servers.com/gf/ff-telospolarsidequest1-2-zip.html The unofficial fix is at the end of the post. If any of the mentioned mods are actually available in the Download section of DeadlyStream, then please post a link in the comments. ff_telossidequest1_2_fix.zip
  5. Very stylish and detailed portraits, I love them! Thank you for putting them in the mod! But @Sdub… 400 Mb file archive, 2K images size, seriously?! Even character model reskins are rarely more than 1024x1024, because bigger size is hardly noticeable and a waste of system resources. For example, “NPC Portraits for TSL” by Sith Holocron have 512x512 images and weigh only 23.75 Mb. Such nice 2K images would look great on posters or in the collection, but for a mod I have 2 suggestions: 1. Change images size to 512x512. Perhaps, you can make alternative lite version of the mod, available as separate download on this page. 2. Use better compression algorithm. I managed to compress archive to just 45 Mb with 7-Zip. 400 Mb vs 45 Mb. @DylanRPG all of this feedback can be applied to you too 👆
  6. Usually I use WhereAmI armband mod (you can find it on Gamefront) or Workbox by bead-v to get coordinates of the user's current location and then write custom script that spawns npc in the required location. This script can be inserted into onEnterScript of Module or attached to dialogs or interactions with items, etc.
  7. In KOTOR 2 it's actually possible to remove most of GUI elements (including names above NPCs and placeables) by deleting structures named "BORDERS", "CONTROLS", "EXTENT" from the file mipc28x6_p.gui. KOTOR I probably uses this or similarly named file for its GUI. But like La Ingobernable said, switching between combat styles, using grenades and Force powers without UI is impossible. Maybe you can use hotkeys for some actions, but I doubt. Here is reworked file from KOTOR 2 for reference. mipc28x6_p.gui
  8. I also didn't find that mod, so I created new one. It uses free model by Anthony Yanez licensed under CCA. The original texture has been changed to look better in game and I hope to improve it further in the future, hence "beta" status. DC-17 TCW (beta).7z
  9. No, but there is a version of Shem's Realistic Visual Effects for K2
  10. @djh269 Glad that I’m not the only one who thinks Poison damage type was seriously underused and could have been featured more prominently. Version 1.0 of the mod made poison weapons and upgrades available to the player’s party, next update will give poison weapons to some existent enemies. For example, it’ll make sense for thugs on Nar-Shaddaa to use poisoned daggers. Currently, I have no plans for K1 version, as that game already has poison weapons, and enemies, capable to poison the player, are more common. I’ll think about it after version 1.1.
  11. View File Poison weapons and upgrades "Poison weapons and upgrades" mod for Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords VERSION: 1.0 RELEASE DATE: October 11, 2021 AUTHOR: LoneWanderer --------------------- 1.Description --------------------- Adds 3 poison weapons (2 with new models) and 6 melee upgrades with custom icons. KOTOR I had several poisoned weapons, which were quite fun to use, but in TSL poison damage type was limited to mostly useless or rarely used grenades, mines and droid special weapons. The goal of this mod is to make gameplay more varied and interesting by adding new obtainable poison weapons and upgrades. Weapons: Naga Sadow's Poison Blade - inside Korriban's Academy Poison Short Sword - can be bought from Samhan Dobo on Telos Sith Poison Double-Bladed Spear - from Dark Jedi Apprentice inside Freedon Nadd's tomb Upgrades (can be created using a workbench): Mild Poisonious Edge - Poison, Mild Damage DC 15 (requres skill: Stealth 6) Average Poisonious Edge - Poison, Average Damage DC 25 (requres skill: Stealth 14) Severe Poisonious Edge - Poison, Virulent Damage DC 30 (requres skill: Stealth 22) Deadly Poisonious Edge - Poison, Deadly Damage DC 50 (requres skill: Stealth 32) Average Weakening Edge - Poison, Average Weakness DC 20 (requres skill: Awareness 10) Deadly Weakening Edge - Poison, Deadly Weakness DC 40 (requres skill: Awareness 28) Since level cap was raised from 20 to 50 in TSL and autobalance system increases the level of enemies to match the level of Main Character, this means that in the latter half of the game most enemies will have very high resistance to poison, which makes it ineffective. To counter this imbalance, 2 additional levels of poison damage were added: Deadly Damage and Deadly Weakness. Also, to increase the chance of poisoning enemies, you can try lowering their Fortitude using, for example, Force Scream. As a bonus Poison Short Sword and Sith Poison Double-Bladed Spear have new models (see License information in section 6.Credits). The correct shadow models were kindly created by DarthParametric.

  13. While I can't speak for N-DReW25, he, probably, was thinking more about fixing this scene for male Exile. If you play as male, then Handmaidens won't appear in the Enclave. Instead, Brianna, the party member, takes Kreia to Telos. How did she get the ship on Dantooine if she was traveling with the Exile on the Ebon Hawk all this time? - this is a plot hole. At first I was also surprised by the Exile being taken to the Ebon Hawk. But it is assumed that the Exile was in Hibernation Trance from the shock/pain/effect of the force from the Council. In fact, in DS variant of the scene Kreia stabs herself (and hurt the Exile through their force bond) and says something like "Stay here and die, apprentice, among the wreckage of all that left of the Jedi" as she leaves, which suggests that the Exile is at the very least (mentally-)wounded. The description of Hibernation Trance says: "Hibernation trance was a control-based ability that slowed the user's metabolism and breathing to a standstill, causing the individual to only use one tenth of the air of a normal individual. To all outward appearances, the individual appears to be dead; only thorough testing would determine that they were alive... A hibernating Force-user would appear dead to all but another Force-user". The only non-novice force user in the party at this point is Visas, but she was trained as Sith, so I guess it's possible for her to not recognise Hibernation Trance. A valid point. "Atton in the cockpit on the ground in pain" should definitely be fixed in next update. About the Ebon Hawk I can suggest to not return the ship to Dantooine and leave it in space when the Exile returns to life. Like in the scene after Peragus, when Atton asks about the color of the Exile's lightsaber, you can see hyperspace through the cockpit. This will require changing the picture in the cockpit to hyperspace (or new picture with stars) and, perhaps, but not required, setting the position for Ebon Hawk on Galaxy Map. Hmm, but then it won't be possible to examine the Jedi Masters' bodies and completely explore the Enclave...
  14. So, I managed to port this sword model into TSL with GMax. The texture of blade seems to be more flat and looks worse than on the site. Guess, this is because I applied only diffuse texture to the model in GMax, when archive had diffuse, metallic, Normal_DirectX, roughness map textures. Sadly, no specular map. @Stormie97 said that game's engine supports normal maps, how to apply this Normal_DirectX map to the model? Also, is there any way to get anything useful from metallic and roughness maps? Enhancing diffuse texture with them or, perhaps, using metallic map instead of specular to produce an envmap mask? Do I even need environment map texture file? I'll write the process as I understood it. Correct me if I wrong. 1.Obtain specular map texture. Invert it. 2.In graphics editor convert specular map texture to alpha mask by adding alpha channels to pixels based on their color/brightness. 3.Add alpha mask from previous step as new layer to diffuse texture. Merge them. In result I'll get 1 new diffuse texture, which I'll apply to the model. One more thing about textures, when I applied the diffuse texture to the model, in the Odyssey Trimesh Params the value "#5" appeared in the field Ambient (in Material Editor only Diffuse is set), but standard game's models had "None" in the field. Regarding 'ignore_basepointer' object (triangle in the upper-left window and the line in the lower-left window): how far from the geometry of the sword (parallelepiped) should it come out?
  15. When existing mod is updated, no message about this appears on the “Activity” page or in the release topic. Usually the mod’s author has to write in Status Updates or manually create the post in the mod release topic to let people know about the fact. Currently, to view recently updated files, user has to open Downloads page, select the game and one of the subcategories, then open “sort by” menu and choose “Recently Updated” menu item. There is a “Follow” button on the mod page, but it’s not the same: if you “follow” the mod, then you will receive notifications about not only updates, but also about every new comment (<- I'm not sure that I remember correctly this one); also sometimes you may become interested in mod after update and sometimes you just want to quickly see which mods were updated recently. I have 2 suggestions about updated mods: It would be very useful if “Recently Updated” tab was added to the “File” section on the site’s main page (in the right part of the page). This way people will be able to switch between them with one click (like “First post/Latest post” in the preview window of topics). Make it so that the message appears on the page "Activity" when the mod is updated.
