  1. View File PapaZinos' Alternates This page is a database of alternatives to some of my mods that I felt needed to be placed elsewhere than their normal page. Think of it as like a collection of some of your favorite snack brands, but only the flavors that most people don't buy. Few looking for cool ranch Doritos want to find themselves surrounded instead by the clam chowder, German potato, or Caribbean citrus jerk flavors, so those of you with more niche palettes can come here to find what you are looking for. Here you can find your clam chowder Doritos. These alternates may be created for several reasons, primarily by request. Thus this page may serve as a resource for other modders who feel these versions better suit their own mods. I will provide a brief description for each, any other pertinent info or instructions can be found on their original mod page as linked. For most people, I recommend using the versions of the mod found on those original pages, unless directed here by another mod you are using or you simply find the changes described below to your liking. Mods Available: Ultimate Ebon Hawk Repairs for TSL - No Animation Edition -- Version 1.1 of the parent mod offered a version of itself that removed all of the misaligned blinking animations from the models. Since version 2.0, these animations have been aligned to their textures, but anyone who got used to or simply prefers the ship without them can download a version here that removes them, and otherwise is up-to-date with v2.0.2 changes. Ultimate Harbinger Repairs - No Dirt Overlay -- Upon request, I have created an alternate version of the Harbinger mod that removes TSL's dirt overlay from every model on the ship. This may be beneficial to those using certain HD texture mods for the ill-fated cosmological hammerhead. These modifications are not supported by Obsidian Entertainment, Lucasarts, Disney or any licensers/sponsors thereof. Use of any of these modifications is at your own risk and neither the aforementioned companies nor the author may be held responsible for any damages caused to your computer via usage of any modifications found on this page.

  3. Great, the mod has been updated. Thanks for letting me know what you were experiencing.
  4. Both of these are solvable, yes. I believe I have found the issue with that light, but as before I do not have this issue in my game to begin with, so I will need you to let me know if this works for you. I have also included a fix here for Disciple's pathing. Simply extract the contents of the .7z file into your mod folder, overwriting the files in there already. If this solves your issue, I will make it the mod standard. v2.0.1 fix.7z
  5. View File Taris Undercity Repairs Taris' Undercity is home to the strangest of galactic life. Not rakghouls, but floating grass. Specifically, there is one little area by the front of the Undercity pod crash with a little walkmesh error, that creates some floating grass the player can float over. This mod just fixes that out for now, it may grow later if I find other things in the module that could use work. Installation: Download the 7z file and extract the contents of the "To Override" folder to your game's override folder, found in the same directory as your main game executable. For Steam installations, this would be "Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor". 7z files can be extracted with Archive Utility on macOS, or with programs like PeaZip on Windows and Linux. Uninstallation: Remove the files in the Included Files list below from your override. Included Files: Compatibility: Users should expect full compatibility with any other mods, so long as they do not modify/replace the above files. Texture mods do not typically create compatibility issues for mods like this. Acknowledgments: Thanks to Symmetric, Purifier, Ndix UR, and seedhartha for making importing to Blender simple using KotORBlender, and to Cortisol for making file extraction easy with the Holocron Toolset. This modification is not supported by Bioware, Lucasarts, Disney or any licensers/sponsors thereof.

  7. Version 2.0.0 is out! It is a pretty hefty update, so here is what's new: -- The Ebon Hawk's computer panels now have geometry cut to its actual textures, such that buttons blink, but not the walls around them. These new fixed animations are catered to the vanilla textures by default, and the mod also includes an even higher-quality version for users of the textures found in Animated Ebon Hawk Monitors (not including Galaxy Map) or More Subtle Animated Ebon Hawk Monitors (still not including Galaxy Map) by Sith Holocron, Dark Hope, Xarwarz, and ebmar, which I highly recommend. See the Installation section for details. -- Actual lights for characters have been added throughout the ship to areas in which they were missing. Most notably the cargo hold, storage compartment, and workbench in the garage. Major characters standing in and around those areas will no longer look dull or unilluminated even when standing right in front of light sources. Other light sources now cast actual light onto players as well. Performance should not be affected by this, in fact: -- Game performance improvements have been made throughout the ship by removing extraneous, performance-draining settings on most lights throughout the ship for effects that were not actually visible in-game. For users with low-end graphics cards that see frame drops when rendering shadows, for instance, your game will now run much smoother at no visual cost. If you experienced frame drops particularly in the port and starboard cabins, that should now be resolved for you. -- A whole host of improvements have been made to the light mapping throughout the ship, mostly by adjusting the actual mapping, though the mod includes some slightly adjusted light maps as well. Those light seams over the hallway lights are now a thing of the past, along many of the other lighting seams throughout the ship. -- A slew of new texture mapping improvements have been made to various computer panels, pipes, doorways, walls, floors, and ceilings throughout. -- The walkmesh has been loosened up where appropriate to decrease the number of invisible walls on the ship. You can now clean up that bit of your mini-map in the engine room. -- This mod now also has you covered with all of the above, as well as the typical geometry fixes, for the alternate version of the ship seen in the prologue. This will fix up that issue of the outside of the garage blinking in and out of existence due to a now-unnecessary box around the main hold, and also includes a new .VIS file so rooms don't disappear before your eyes when rounding corners.
  8. View File TSL Turrets Models Repair There are two kinds of turrets in the Star Wars galaxy: the up turrets and the down turrets. The up turrets have all the nice geometry a turret needs, while the down turrets eschew their lower geometry in favor of nice shadows, since their undersides are not actually visible to people. A harmonious balance -- or so we all thought. It turns out that there are many opportunities to see the bottoms of the down turrets, exposing their empty underbellies for everyone to see. Their shadows are also incomplete and janky-looking. Let's restore balance to this galaxy! If you have not checked out Khoonda Turrets Model Repair, I suggest you do that as well. That will set the turrets around Khoonda to the up models instead of the down models, as they were meant to be. That will mean that they have all the geometry they need without the extra model shadows, which look no good on the higher-up turrets. Installation: Download the 7z file and extract to your override folder, found in the same directory as your main game executable. For Steam installations, this would be "Steam\steamapps\common\Knights of the Old Republic II\override". 7z files can be extracted with Archive Utility on macOS, or with programs like PeaZip on Windows and Linux. Uninstallation: Remove the folder "TSL_Turrets_Models_Repair_v1.0" from your override. Included Files: Compatibility: Users should expect full compatibility with any other mods, so long as they do not modify/replace the above files. I highly recommend using this mod in conjunction with Khoonda Turrets Model Repair, of you have not checked that out already. This mod will fix the lack of geometry issue there as well, but that one will remove the nasty-looking shadow it has. Acknowledgments: Big thank-you to seedartha, Symmetric, Purifier, and Ndix UR for making importing to Blender simple using KotORBlender, and Cortisol for making file extraction convenient with the Holocron Toolset. This modification is not supported by Obsidian Entertainment, Lucasarts, Disney or any licensers/sponsors thereof.

  10. Version 2.0 is out! For those of you who remember this mod as "Harbinger Bridge Repairs", I have now expanded this mod to cover about the entirety of the ship, with the goal of fixing up everything I could find. That includes missing/misplaced geometry, UV and lightmapping errors, broken animations, mis-layered objects, and more. Some reorganization of models has also allowed me to lower the number of submodules that need to be loaded in during certain critical scenes, which could improve game performance as well.
  11. I will contact Achilles about it, and if they are good with it, I can create a patch.
  12. I like this idea, I will look into it!
  13. Version 1.1 is now available! For fans of Movie-style Jedi Master robes, DeadMan was gracious enough to allow me to create a compatibility patch for the new version for anyone who would like to use that mod alongside this one.
  14. View File Robes With Shadows For TSL There is nothing more central to a Jedi's life than a cool outfit, except maybe a sweet saber to boot. So why put on robes with missing textures on their backsides when you could be impressing Sith Lords with your nice getup? Why settle for the shadow of a limberjack when a cool silhouette is half the reason you don the cloak? Let's fix up the game's robes! This mod will provide you with some fixed up versions of all the game's robe models -- that's both the thicker and thinner variants of the Jedi robe, the Jal Shey armor, Kreia's robe, and the Handmaiden's hooded robe. All models will have various issues fixed up, as well as fitting shadows. Any outfit that uses one of these models, regardless of texture/color, will be improved for you, and that includes any new robes from any other mods (just make sure they don't replace one of the listed models in the below Included Files). Fans of Movie-style Jedi Master robes by DeadMan should read the Compatibility section below for how to install the included patch that makes these mods work together. This mod also fixes the floating shadow head issue when dual-wielding melee weapons, as well as a minor game error caused by a mismatched model name. Installation: Download the 7z file and extract to your override folder, found in the same directory as your main game executable. For Steam installations, this would be "Steam\steamapps\common\Knights of the Old Republic II\override". 7z files can be extracted with Archive Utility on macOS, or with programs like PeaZip on Windows and Linux. Once in-game, I recommend turning on soft shadows if you have not already (OPTIONS->GRAPHICS->ADVANCED GRAPHICS->SOFT SHADOWS). If you have TSLRCM installed, check the Included Files section below for any file listed with an asterisk (*). These files are already in your override after installing TSLRCM, so you should delete those versions in order for the new ones to work. The new versions already include all the changes made in the base TSLRCM version, and I have included a folder labeled "TSLRCM backup" which contains those older versions should you need to back them up. If you installed TSLRCM via Steam, you can find the relevant files to delete in "Steam\steamapps\workshop\485537937\override". Uninstallation: Place the files included in the "TSLRCM backup" folder into your override if using TSLRCM, and then remove "Ultimate_Robes_Repair_For_TSL" from your override. Included Files: Compatibility: This mod is fully compatible with any mod which does not replace any of the files listed above. If a mod does include any such models, you will have to pick which version to use, and remove the other from your override. If using TSLRCM, make sure to install that mod first, and make sure that any files listed with an asterisk above are successfully replaced by this mod. See the Installation section for more details. Any texture mods that add new or alter robe skins are compatible with this mod. However, many robe mods will attempt to replace model files (.mdl/.mdx) as well, rather than just textures (.tga/.tpc), so keep an eye out for what files are included with other mods. For fans of Movie-style Jedi Master robes, DeadMan was gracious enough to allow me to create a compatibility patch for anyone who would like to use that mod alongside this one. Simply take the files included in the Compatibility Patch folder out into your override in place of the versions included in the main mod folder. Make sure these versions also replace the ones used in the Movie-style mod and TSLRCM. Compatible mods include Jedi Journeyman Robes by Stormie97, which uses a different model as its basis, and much of Effixian's work, such as Effixian's Lore Keeper's Robes, Strider Robes, and Handmaiden Clothing Reskin. Acknowledgments: Thanks to seedhartha, NdixUR, Symmetric, and Purifier for making importing to Blender simple using KotORBlender, and Cortisol for making file extraction easy with the Holocron Toolset. I would also like to thank DeadMan for allowing me to use his models to create a compatibility patch for this mod and his.
