  1. Has anyone here ever used this mod?  Could I get some details on differences between this mod and the TSLRCM? And finally, are there any videos of this mod out there?

  2. Hi there all.  I've made three new blogs recently.  Check them out and post if you have relevant insights to share. Likes also accepted. ;)

    Blog #96 - What do you HATE about the M4-78 EP?
    Blog #95 - What do you LIKE or LOVE about M4-78 EP?

    Blog #94 - The Problem with Master Vash

      I can't say I've tried out the M4-78 mod; I may have to check it out.

  3. Do either the Manaan or Tatooine cantinas have official (or unofficial) names? 

    1. Ferc Kast

      I don't remember if there is a name for the one on Manaan. But, the Tatooine cantina is the Anchorhead Cantina.

  4. Has your mod been used without either attribution or permission? Don't be so sure.  Check this Reddit thread first. (I removed the link as to not exacerbate a resolved situation. Hopefully, others will remove their links to it as well.)

      Just my Playable Twileks mod. I managed to find their DCMA reporting page earlier, thanks to the Steam Community forum, and it’s finally down! 😁

      Only on Steam Workshop. Which unfortunately has still not been resolved by Valve after 6+ months since I reported it. *sigh*

  6. Hoping to upload a mod while prepping for family to come in for the weekend. Seemingly worked out the bugs I initially had when setting up the patcher.

      And uploaded. 😁

  7. Some more robe progress:

    LBQmVNk.png

    There are ten texture variants for the K2 version. Half are done, and the other half is on the way. I've finished the basic recreation of them all, but that was only the first step. A lot of them need additional fine-tuning. For example, the Dark Jedi Knight robe was misaligned; part of the robe was shifted up a few pixels, compared to the other variants. I also thought the cloaks on a few textures looked washed out, so I fiddled with the levels to give them better contrast. But the biggest changes I've had to make were for Jolee's robe because the original just did not look like Jolee at all.

    Fortunately, the rest don't have to be replaced almost from scratch like that one. Jolee's robe is the only unique robe that uses that model rather than the master robe model. Just little changes - the fine tuning - are needed for the final five textures. The only thing slowing me down is my motivation. That's the sort of thing I can spend forever fussing over, and in fact I'm still not totally happy with the Jolee texture and might go back to it later. Anyway, the K2 version is coming... eventually.

      Looks nice. 👍 Never made sense to me why the original didn't look more like Jolee's outfit despite being named after him.

  8. Considering to watermark any texture-based mods I make going forward after finding someone uploaded one of my mods onto Steam Workshop without my permission. Already reported said mod on Steam this morning.

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      If I did, I wouldn't make visible enough for the end user to ruin their experience using it. More or less, it'd only be for my benefit if I couldn't tell if it was a re-upload or not. In this case, I had to pull up the textures side by side to tell.

  9. That awkward moment finding that I broke the installer to one of my mods almost exactly 3 years ago without realizing it.

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      It was my Playable Brunette mod for KOTOR 2, which I had only hosted on my site. I did manage to fix it.

  10. So... has anyone have new mods going to be released soon?

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      Not currently, though I do intend to return to modding soon.

  11. Starting to get my mod website back online. Luckily, I had made backups of my databases. :)

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      Not actively making any mods, but after finding my site down a couple weeks ago, I figured the least I could do is get it back up.

  12. Trying to figure out why my steam copy of KotOR II keeps crashing after the creation screen. #firstworldproblems

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      Oh; guess I just had to disable the frame buffer.

  13. With 4 level 57+ toons left to get to 60, I decided to make a fresh toon on a different server.

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      My new one is on a different server from my other 8 toons; although, I'm keeping my Cybertech up-to-date on my new one with credits I would have spent on training :P

  16. Dear Disney, please let Obsidian make their Star Wars Episode 3.5 game. Kthxbai

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      Perhaps instead Obsidian could do a game between Episode VI and the upcoming Episode VII. :P

  17. Potentially fun new tool starting to be developed...

      If all goes according to plan, it'll be something that is related to something released last year. xD

  19. It seems your maintenance opened the floodgates! Good thing I was able to report all the spam. Oh wait, no I wasn't. Why is reporting a blocked feature?..

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      That is a good question, since that would potentially help get rid of the spam faster.

  20. Starting to upload some old mods here on DS. :)

  22. Is anyone interested in Drewton releasing his mods?

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      There are definitely a few of his mods that I'd like to see released.

  23. just out of a curiosity, if i completely uninstalled kotor2 and everything, and then reinstalled it, would i still need to install the 1.0b patch before putting TSLRCM 1.8 and then my mods?

    1. Ferc Kast

      Ferc Kast

      Unless you're using the copy of KotOR 2 from the recent bundle pack, you would need to manually install the 1.0b patch before installing TSLRCM 1.8
