  1. Thank you, that's good to hear! If I understand your question correctly, LSF_EHawk01.tga and LSF_EHawk.txi should still be left in Override when you're done. They're the textures that reskin the Ebon Hawk on the Star Forge. The end goal is just to make an extra copy of the reskin that is appropriately named so that my new models will use it. There isn't anything special about LSF_EHawk01 versus the other planet-specific copies, I just chose it to have something concrete for the instructions.
  2. Thanks for jumping in, Thor110. This will probably be the cause and solution for the typical user with this issue. If you have been to Yavin previously, the game loads the old waypoints, placeables, etc. from the saved game rather than the updated ones in the module GIT. The original exit will still be there, too, so it shouldn't break the module. You just won't be able to get to the hangar before it sends you back to the Ebon Hawk. That would definitely do it. 🙂 Glad you were able to figure it out.
  3. Thanks for the feedback, the emitters definitely make it feel more like the vanilla forcefield doors. I like the end result (although the still screenshot doesn’t quite capture it), and I have updated the forcefield version with the emitters. I have also added a subtle plane of static similar to mydoor2. Instead of adding duplicate emitters, I actually increased their Y dimensions to fit the opening height. I also ended up tweaking a few parameters to suit the larger opening. (Side note, it looks like the emitters on mydoor2 are actually not symmetrical, although I can’t say that it’s noticeable in-game.)
  4. I actually already had the lights around the perimeter for that exact reason, might not have been clear in the screenshots. But I can also see how the full forcefield effect gives it a bit more punch.
  5. IIRC, I don't think any of the vanilla K1 or TSL hangars have visible forcefields, just lights around the perimeter to represent some kind of emitters. That's how the original trilogy handled it, too: DarthParametric added a visible forcefield to the Leviathan hangar for K1CP, which I did my best to emulate. Now that I've seen it in action, I have to admit that it's a pretty cool effect.
  6. Update: As suggested by DarthParametric (and reinforced by Sdub), I have added an option for a visible forcefield at the entrance to the hangar. If you've already installed version 1.0 and want to try the new effect, you can proceed straight to the "Add Visible Forcefield" part of the installation. Thanks a ton to Darth Parametric for providing an example forcefield that I could emulate!
  7. Thanks for the suggestion, DarthParametric. I'll take a look at adding an option for a visible forcefield. Edit: I have now added the option in version 1.1. Thanks for the suggestion and example!
  8. Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I actually never noticed the similarities either until I got the idea for this mod, and I started comparing the landing videos to see if an existing hangar might be close enough to reuse as a reskin. And then I got to Manaan and realized they were basically identical.
  9. View File Yavin Station Hangar In the vanilla game, Yavin Station is the only location that does not have a proper hangar where the player can walk to and from the Ebon Hawk. This mod adds one that generally matches the original landing/takeoff videos, although I have taken a few artistic liberties. You may notice that, as with the original videos, it looks remarkably similar to the Ahto City hangar on Manaan. I can only assume that the same architect worked on both projects. The hangar comes in two variants: with and without a visible forcefield effect over the hangar entrance. By default, the forcefield is invisible. To change between the visible and invisible forcefields, see the INSTALLATION instructions below. Aside from adding the new hangar, I have also made a few additional edits to the station: - Changed the stars to use a different, less-repetitive vanilla star texture. - Fixed some questionable geometry at the main observation window. - Edited the walkmesh by the observation window to correct a glitch where the player could teleport into space, originally documented by the KOTOR 1 Community Patch (K1CP). Please note that I have not reused any K1CP material for these edits. IMPORTANT: For everything to work right, you will need a save from before visiting Yavin Station for the first time. Thank you for downloading, and I hope you enjoy this mod! ------------------------------------------------------------------- INSTALLATION Run INSTALL.exe, and select the option "Main Installation" when prompted. If you are using "High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes" by Sithspecter, see below for additional instructions. By default, the forcefield at the hangar entrance is invisible. To add a visible forcefield effect, run INSTALL.exe again after finishing the main installation, and select "Optional: Add Visible Forcefield". If you change your mind and prefer the invisible forcefield, run INSTALL.exe a third time, and select "Optional: Revert to Invisible Forcefield". ------------------------------------------------------------------- COMPATIBILITY This mod is incompatible with any mods that alter the area geometry of Yavin Station. Reskins are technically compatible, but they might look strange with a few new textures that I have added. If you are using a reskin of the Ebon Hawk's exterior, see the instructions below. This mod has not been tested with the KOTOR 1 Community Patch (K1CP), the KOTOR 1 Restoration (K1R), or the K1 Yavin IV Planet Mod, but I do not expect any significant issues. For best results, install this mod after K1CP or K1R and before any other mods that alter Yavin Station. ------------------------------------------------------------------- HIGH QUALITY COCKPIT SKYBOXES If you are using "High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes" by Sithspecter (which I highly recommend), I have included compatible skybox textures matching my new hangar. After installing the cockpit skyboxes, perform the following steps: 1. Go to the folder "HQ Cockpit Skybox Textures". 2. Copy the TPC files corresponding to the desired quality into your Override folder. 3. If present, delete the following files from Override: - ebo_yab.tga - ebo_yaf.tga - ebo_yal.tga - ebo_yar.tga - ebo_yat.tga "High Quality Cockpit Skyboxes" may be found at https://deadlystream.com/files/file/938-high-quality-cockpit-skyboxes/ ------------------------------------------------------------------- EBON HAWK RESKINS To use a reskin of the Ebon Hawk's exterior with the new hangar, perform the following steps: 1. Make extra copies of "LSF_EHawk01.tga" and "LSF_EHawk01.txi" (if present) from the reskin, and rename them as "yvh_ehawk.tga" and "yvh_ehawk.txi", respectively. 2. If present, open the new "yvh_ehawk.txi" with a text editor, and change the entry after "envmaptexture" or "bumpyshinytexture" to "CM_WK_YAVHGR". 3. Copy both files into your Override folder. 4. Delete "yvh_ehawk.tpc" from your Override folder. ------------------------------------------------------------------- POTENTIAL BUGS During testing, I occasionally ran into issues of teleporting into space while walking between the hangar and the connecting corridor.
