  1. View File Spark Effect - Ebon Hawk Something's gone wrong with the Ebon Hawk. Not only are sparks flying out of its panels every which way, but those sparks look less like sparks and more like Pac-Man's power pellets. Most likely because the spark objects in the local geometry are not making use of the same effects technology the rest of the game's sparks are, namely motion blur for that streak look. This mod takes fixes up the sparks used in the game's prologue to use the same technology as the rest of the game, for a stronger look more consistent with the rest of the game, while retaining all of the same intention as the original ones. For clarity, this is not a texture mod, but a model one. It is compatible with any texture mods of your choice. Check out the included video below to see the differences. spkeff.mp4 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". You can open .7z files with programs like Archive Utility on macOS, or by downloading free programs like PeaZip on Windows and Linux. Uninstallation: Remove the folder "Spark_Effect_v1.0" from your override. Compatibility: Users should expect full compatibility with any other mods, so long as they do not modify/replace the files listed below. This mod is compatible with "Ultimate Ebon Hawk Repairs". You can also check out ShiningRedHD's "Ebon Hawk HD - 4x Upscaled Texture" on NexusMods for a high definition version of the exterior of the ship. Dark parts of the ship's map bothering you? Check out "TSL Ebon Hawk Downloadable Map" by Ashton Scorpius. Included Files: -001ebo17.mdl -001ebo17.mdx -002ebo.mdl -002ebo.mdx Acknowledgments: Thanks to Cortisol and Fred Tetra for making file extraction easy with the Holocron Toolset and KotORTool, respectively, and Symmetric, Purifier, Ndix UR, and seedhartha for making importing to Blender simple using KotORBlender. I would also like to give a big shout out to ConansHair for the idea for the mod, and for lending me his thoughts.

  3. Harbinger's Arrival Performance Enhancement for TSLRCM v1.1 is now available for download! The update improves the lighting for the cutscene, and now includes the same room model created for the new version of Ultimate Peragus Models Repair, so you don't need to install a separate mod for the lighting fixes. Install process is the same for those updating and first-timers.
  4. Version 1.3 is out! Lots of new fixes in this one -- I added the dormitory section to the list of modules to fix up, from gaps in geometry to texture and light mapping. Lots of light mapping fixes to the administration level and asteroid exterior as well, on top of one small fix for the fuel depot.
  5. Now available are some alternates for the TSL Ebon Hawk cockpit that use the K1 model exterior out the window. This creates TSL compatibility for K1 mods that offered higher resolution versions of the texture that K1 used, which previously could not be used in the second game because of the vastly different mapping.
  6. Version 1.0.1 is out! This adds new fixes to Zaalbar's model, including some fur on his legs that was missing texture on its backside, and an issue with a strange polygon on his back that ConansHair pointed out to me (so thank you to him).
  7. I have now added a No Animation version of Ultimate Ebon Hawk Repairs for K1, which removes the blinking light animations for the various monitor buttons around the ship. Compatible with the same number of texture mods -- feel free to follow the link to the original mod for more info.
  8. Version 2.0.0 is out! It is a pretty hefty update, bringing a lot of what I did for version 2.0.0 of TSL's Hawk to K1, 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 no longer large sections of 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. -- Functioning lights for characters have been added to the cargo hold and certain hallway lights where they were missing. -- A whole host of improvements have been made to the light mapping throughout the ship, all by adjusting the actual mapping itself. 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. As always, these mods are made for and tested on PC -- so if you are using them on another platform and experience any inconsistencies with how it looks on PC, feel free to shoot me a message and we'll sort it out.
  9. View File Party Model Fixes For K1, Part II Those of you familiar with Party Model Fixes by redrob41 know it is a cool mod that fixes up some of the game's models for your K1 party members. Cool enough that I figured it was time for a sequel -- we are going to do even more fixing up of our compatriots: Carth: His unique outfit has a holster which hung by some leather that was missing a texture on one side, rendering it invisible from certain angles. This fixes up that issue, alongside some bonus texture mapping fixes to his opposite pouch and jacket, including the collar fix that redrob41 worked on in their original mod. Zaalbar: Our wookiee friend had some hairs that went missing depending on the angle, again due to missing textures on the opposite sides of some geometry. This fixes that right up, alongside some other messy texture mapping for some of his fur. Jolee: Sometimes Jolee likes to just hang out in a swim suit, socks, and... some kind of bizarre ankle brace. I could not tell you what it does, but it is unlikely to be doing its job given that it disappears when viewed from the other side. This fixes up another classic case of one-sided texture syndrome, and makes some small improvements to texture mapping. Mission: Originally Mission was set to just use adult models when wearing various armors, likely due to time constraints. Therefore, I have made some alternate armor models more suitable for a kid to use. These are just edited versions of the vanilla models, with similar texture mapping, so it is all very vanilla-looking and compatible with any texture mods. This will add the new models to your game and set her appearance.2da row to use them. Her unique models in vanilla are fixed up less noticeably to reflect the changes, and include similar texture mapping fixes to the arms that redrob41 did. This mod is intended to be installed after redrob41's Party Model Fixes, but does not require it to work. All changes will be applied immediately, and do not require that you start a new game. Installation: Download the included .7z file and extract it anywhere of your choosing on your computer. You can unzip a .7z file with tools such as Archive Utility on MacOs, or by with free programs like PeaZip on Windows and Linux. Simply run this installer, directing it to the location of your main game folder with the executable. For Steam installations, this would be "Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor". The installer is an .exe file, which Windows can run natively. Mac and Linux users might consider checking out Cortisol's HoloPatcher -- a new tool that is meant as a cross-platform alternative to traditional KotOR mod installers. Alternatively, executable files can be run on Mac or Linux with programs using tools such as Wine. If you are having trouble with either of those options, I have included some instructions for manual installation in the download's "ReadMe" file. If you happened to have previously installed another mod which placed an appearance.2da file in your override folder, the installer will give you a warning reporting as much upon completion. This is of no concern -- so long as you get no other warnings or errors, the mod is installed correctly and ready-to-go. The mod will overwrite any conflicting model files (.mdl/.mdx) in your override folder, but not any appearance.2da file it finds there, merely edit the existing one. Be sure to back up anything you want to keep ahead of time. The Included Files list below contains all the files that will be installed to the override folder. Uninstallation: Delete all of the files listed below from your override folder. If you had an appearance.2da file in your override folder prior to installing, you can find a backup version in the mod's "backup" folder, which was automatically created during installation, and place that in your override. If you are unsure whether or not a previous mod had put that file there or not, it is better to make use of the backup. Included Files: Compatibility: This mod is fully compatible with any mod which does not replace any of the model files (.mdl/.mdx) listed above. Files that edit appearance.2da are compatible so long as they do not change Mission's armor model cells. If you intend to install Party Model Fixes by redrob41, I recommend doing so before installing this mod, or what you install here will be overwritten. Expect compatibility with most any texture/reskin mods -- so long as they do not replace models (.mdl/.mdx files) as well as textures, there should be no conflict. 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 Stoffe and Fair Strides for making inter-mod compatibility infinitely more feasible with TSLPatcher. Shout-out to ConansHair for pointing out that weird bright spot on Zaalbar's rump. This modification is not supported by Obsidian Entertainment, Lucasarts, Disney or any licensers/sponsors thereof. Use of this modification 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 this modification's usage.

  11. I'm always open to seeing what mod authors are willing to give permissions for a patch. Since svösh gives blanket permission, that would be pretty doable.
  12. 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 K1 - No Animation Edition -- Version 1.03 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 v2.0.0 changes. 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. LEH_EHawk01 for TSL - I added an alternate version of TSL's Ebon Hawk cockpit that uses the LEH_EHawk01 texture that the first game/prologue used. Compatibility options for the various animation options, and up-to-date with v2.0.2 of Ebon Hawk Repairs. This is primarily for people looking for compatibility options for texture mods that offer high resolution or otherwise retextured versions of LEH_EHawk01 but not LEH_EHawk02. If you are looking for a high resolution version of LEH_EHawk02, try tjsase's TSL HD Cockpit Skyboxes. 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.

  14. Great, the mod has been updated. Thanks for letting me know what you were experiencing.
  15. 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
