  1. The KOTOR 1 Community Patch actually already fixes that and gives you back your clothes while talking to the Tusken chieftan. I highly recommend it if you haven't used it before.
  2. Yes, you assume correctly. The main installation also patches all of those holes, the main feature of the compatibility version is the added forcefield.
  3. You are welcome, glad you like it! lsi_ehawk01a is the texture just for the glass/transparisteel in the cockpit windows, and it is still necessary. Since the vanilla texture has no detail and is just there to provide a reflection, I am assuming that reskin mods do not edit it, and therefore there would be no conflict. But please let me know if I have assumed incorrectly. Edit: On another topic, I completely missed that K1CP also had some minor fixes to the Dantooine landing pad, which my mod was overwriting. With @DarthParametric's permission and assistance, I have released an update to include K1CP's fixes.
  4. Looking forward to that when you release it. Yes, we’ll definitely have to coordinate on a patch when that happens. I don’t think so, it doesn’t look like the Github version of K1CP currently touches m26ad_01a.mdl/mdx. If you don’t already have a fix for that in progress, you are welcome to borrow the geometry from my version if you want.
  5. View File Transparent Cockpit Windows for TSL This mod edits the various landing pad areas so that you can see the through the Ebon Hawk's and Telos shuttles' cockpit windows, which should be a bit more interesting than the blacked-out windows in the vanilla game. It also adds more detail to the room which is visible through the hole in the side of the ship in the prologue. This mod includes some model fixes to the Telos hangars and Telos shuttle crash site developed by PapaZinos, which are included here with permission. I have also made the following area model improvements: - Added proper lightmaps and missing geometry to the Ebon Hawk on Malachor V (i.e. landing gear hatches, the exit ramp, and the entire port side). Also patched the chunk missing from the starboard side for better consistency with the prerendered cutscenes. - Fixed the flickering windows at the Citadel Station Entertainment Module's shuttle terminals. - Changed the texture for the base of the crane in the Telos Academy to one that doesn't look like concrete. - Added unique environment map reflections for the Ebon Hawk similar to KOTOR 1 ("Enhanced Reflections" version only). - Replaced the 512x512 vanilla Ebon Hawk texture with the 1024x1024 version from KOTOR 1 ("Enhanced Reflections" version only). Because mods that edit the same area models are incompatible by nature, I have included optional compatibility patches for use with other notable mods. Please see the "Compatibility" section below for further information. **IMPORTANT**: There are two versions of this mod: - Enhanced Reflections - Adds new area-specific reflections to the Ebon Hawk's exterior. Recommended if you do not use any mods that reskin/upscale the Ebon Hawk exterior (or if you do and are willing to do some extra work to make them compatible). - Reskin Friendly - More readily compatibility with reskins of the Ebon Hawk exterior. Does not include the new reflections.

  9. Is there any significant benefit to using an uncompressed TPC for a texture as opposed to a TGA with a TXI? I know compressed TPCs are typically used for space savings, but I have a specific case where the compression artifacts are too noticeable for my liking. Is the main benefit of TPC just the option of compression? If I go with uncompressed, does it just come down to organizational preference (i.e. one somewhat larger file vs two files), or are there other benefits?
  10. Splitting the model out into opaque and transparent components is an interesting idea (although that would probably mean the transparent projected components of the map would still disappear). Unfortunately, KOTOR 1 is severely limited in terms of adding new placeable models, as outlined in this thread: I gather that current modding practice is to avoid adding new placeables if at all possible for this reason, so unfortunately that probably wouldn't be a practical solution in this case. But thanks for the idea.
  11. Don't know for certain, but I suspect it would, unfortunately. My best guess is that it happens because the Star Map also uses mesh alpha transparency, which is required for the map portion to appear and disappear. It could be worse, the dark lighting on the sea floor makes it less obvious than it otherwise might have been. That's a possibility, is there enough interest to merit adding that as an additional option? It might also work to delete my mod's version of P_WaterSuit02.tpc, which will revert the environment map back to the vanilla CM_BareMetal. That looks somewhat less clear and more gold, as you can see in the screenshots for the TSL version.
  12. That's a fair point...but then I'd be missing the spacesuits for the regular option, so it's a no-win scenario. And "Transparent Diving and Pressure Suit Faceplates" just seems too long. Come to think of it, "Transparent Environment Suit Faceplates" is a decent catch-all name. I'm going ahead and updating the title. As long as no one minds that the readme will still say "spacesuit" until I release another update.
  13. Thank you! This picture should demonstrate. If you look closely, you can see that the part of the Star Map behind the helmet glass has disappeared. As I understand it, it's because the game engine uses shortcuts to decide rendering order, so you sometimes get glitches like this when a transparent object is incorrectly drawn before another object behind it. Sometimes there are ways to coax the game into drawing things correctly, but I haven't yet found one that works here. Fortunately, the Star Map is apparently the only placeable in this module that this happens to. I actually hadn't noticed that scripts.bif had source code for it. I saw that there was a version packaged in manm28ac.rim and jumped to the conclusion that I needed to decompile it to edit it (or, in this case, go to K1CP's repository for a pre-decompiled version). Now that you point that out, though, k_pman_airlock02.ncs in scripts.bif is definitely not the same as the one in manm28ac.rim. The compiled scripts are different sizes, and the decompiled code doesn't completely line up either. (Here's the decompiled version from manm28ac.rim for comparison: https://github.com/KOTORCommunityPatches/Vanilla_KOTOR_Script_Source/blob/master/K1/Modules/M28AC_Manaan_Hrakert_Kolto_Control_manm28ac/k_pman_airlock02.nss). All of the scripts work like they're supposed to, so the module version must take precedence. So...I meant to do that? One of the doors was disappearing behind the helmet glass just like the Star Map (only much more noticeably). I discovered that some of its properties didn't match the other doors, and changing them to match fixed the issue without any apparent adverse side-effects. @Nehua made a good case for it in the comments section of the file. It made sense to me, so I added it as an option. (I think real spacesuits have a reflective visor essentially for this reason.)
  14. Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, that reverses the problem and makes it so that the glass isn't drawn over the Star Map. With "blending additive": Without "blending additive" (published version): I also tried changing the alpha blending in the TPC, with no success. In my opinion, the disappearing Star Map is less obvious than the disappearing glass, so I'll keep it as-is for now. Interestingly, the Star Map is the only placeable on the sea floor that this happens to, and I think it's also the only one that uses mesh alpha. My guess is that the game always renders a character model with mesh alpha before a placeable with mesh alpha. If you're using that player head, the merc will instead have the "mullet man" head. I didn't convert any of the commoner heads to work with the suit, so to use one of them, you would need to process it with the included instructions for adding heads. Changing to a different player head would be much easier, since you would only need to change the normalhead/backuphead entries for "WK_WaterSuit_NPC_M" in appearance.2da. I didn't add anything special for his facial expression, but (a) the zoom-in is pretty fast and (b) the bottom of the helmet covers up his mouth, so his lack of reaction isn't very noticeable in-game. Sure, that logic makes sense to me. I have updated the mod with an installation option for just the diving suits.
  15. View File Transparent Spacesuit Faceplates for TSL This mod makes your spacesuit's faceplate transparent so that you can see the head of the character wearing it, as opposed to the opaque faceplate on the vanilla spacesuit. For plot-related reasons, the spacesuit's faceplate will still be opaque for the Jekk'Jekk Tarr sequence when Mira steals your spacesuit. I have also made the following edits to the suit model: - Adjusted texture UVs to hide texture regions that appear to be unfinished (judging by the white lines which look suspiciously like an exported UV map). - Added a bright texture to the squares on either side of the faceplate. (The vanilla model already has bright white untextured rectangles in these locations; I just assigned them the same texture that I used for the K1 version of this mod.) I have also included an option with less transparency transparency to the faceplate, if you would like some transparency but would prefer something closer to the mirrored visors on real spacesuits. This mod requires The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM). It has not been tested with an unaltered version of the game without TSLRCM. Please note that if you are using a non-vanilla player head, the spacesuit will default back to the vanilla-style opaque helmet. See the "Compatibility" section below for further information. Thank you for downloading, and I hope you enjoy this mod! ------------------------------------------------------------------- INSTALLATION Run INSTALL.exe and follow the prompts. If you would like to use the "Less Transparent Faceplates" option, copy the files from the corresponding folder into your game's "Override" folder after installation is complete. If you are using TSLRCM from the Steam Workshop, see this guide for how to combine installer-based mods with the Workshop: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=488641307 If you have other mods installed, it is normal to see warnings that some or all of the following files already exist and have been skipped: - appearance.2da - heads.2da - 201TEL.mod I recommend keeping copies of all of the NSS files that are saved to the folder "tslpatchdata\debug". You will need them later if you ever want to add non-vanilla head mods. ------------------------------------------------------------------- COMPATIBILITY This mod requires The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM). It is not compatible with any other mods which edit a_104per_enter.ncs. For best results, install this mod after TSLRCM and any other mods that make significant edits to: - The walk speed of the spacesuit - The Peragus spacewalk module - The Citadel Station dock module This mod is compatible with reskins and texture mods that affect vanilla heads. It will not conflict with mods that edit the MDL/MDX files of vanilla heads, but the changes to the head model will not carry over to the head seen inside the spacesuit. Due to the way this mod is implemented, non-vanilla player heads will still not be visible inside the spacesuit, and the game will default back to the vanilla-style opaque faceplate. If you would like to see a non-vanilla head in the spacesuit, I have included instructions for how to make the new head compatible with this mod. The process is fairly straightforward, but it does require some knowledge of using modding tools. For further information, please see the file "Instructions to Add New Heads.pdf". ------------------------------------------------------------------- CREDITS KotorBlender by seedhartha tpcview and tga2tpc by ndix UR NWNSSCOMP by Torlack, stoffe, and tk102 DeNCS by JdNoa and Dashus K-GFF by tk102 TSL Patcher by stoffe and Fair Strides ERFEdit by stoffe and Fair Strides Kotor Tool by Fred Tetra Thanks to Salk for suggesting an option for reduced transparency on the faceplate for the K1 version of this mod.
