  1. Almost ready with a new tutorial for my Recruit Function mod resource. Would people prefer it in a video format or written format? Or both?

      written format, annoying to rewind videos. 

    3. Sith Holocron

      Agree with JC2 here

      Reading is fine. But seeing the mod in action on video is also great. Looking forward to either option!

  2. Rewriting some old readme files at midnight was not my best idea. >_> Found at least one typo, so far, this morning.

      I usually have to rewrite my stuff immediately after I post it.  Something about me correcting everyone else's spelling makes me a target. ;)

      It kind of gives the feeling you can take it, SH. 🤔

      At least I correct it quickly.  ;)

  3. If anyone ever has their mod published on Steam without their permission, here's the link for Steam's DCMA takedown request form: https://steamcommunity.com/dmca/create/ Hope you don't need it; but if you do, you won't struggle as I did to find it since the report button there is apparently ignored.

  4. 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.

    1. Ferc Kast

      And uploaded. 😁

  5. Found 7 bugs while testing a mod. Glad to have found them before releasing said mod. :)

  6. Potentially lost all of my files for an old WIP mod, so may have to restart it from scratch.

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      That's really annoying.  I empathize.  :(

  7. 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.

      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.

    3. DarthParametric

      In that case I'd call it a tell then, rather than a watermark. The latter implies something plastered across the entire texture.

      Isn’t there some kind of technique called ”watermark” that’s essentially some data encoded in a pixel, or am I completely clueless here?

  8. Give or take making new portraits, I almost have a mod update ready with another close behind.

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

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      a) Which one was it?

      b) Is it fixed now?

    2. 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.

      ahaha! This is going to be me some day, I just know it!

  10. Reinstalled KotOR Tool for the first time in a while...

      Ahh, the recruit script creator! ^^

  11. Beginning work to revamp my modding site. Should look nicer than it currently does when done. :)

  12. My mod site / blog is running again. I did change domain extensions, so use the new link on my profile.

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

    1. Sithspecter

      Sithspecter

      Good to see you around again!

      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.

  14. Good thing I got TSL on Steam a while back. Will be fun to play in native 1080p. Next thing I'll have to do is figure out about this Steam Workshop thing.

  15. 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.

      The Steam overlay can cause issues too, I've found.

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

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      At least your new toon will be able to benefit from the items the others can make for him/her.

    2. 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

  17. Finally have a level 50 character on TOR ^_^

      I'm working my way to level 50 with my Knight, loving it so far.

      Don't forget to post pictures of your characters in the the thread in The Old Republic section.

  18. Observation: LucasForums and Deadly Stream down at the same time allegedly for "12 hrs." Conclusion: It's a trap!

  19. Everything's finally set up on my new laptop, including the KotOR series :)

  20. Replaced my laptop last night since my former one died last week.

    1. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      Best of luck getting everything running on the new one!

  21. Got the council scene implemented in-game. Just need to fix the camera's focus on each line. :)

    1. Hassat Hunter

      Hassat Hunter

      Council scene?

      For those of us out of the loop, care to explain more what this is?

    2. Ferc Kast

      For Echo of the Force, my main mod project.

  22. Reworking and enhancing the php Code running my site. :P

  23. EotF site v2 is now live at http://eotf.kasts-echo.info Hope you enjoy the new changes to the layout!!

  24. Echo of the Force's site v2 under construction. Will bring a more unified theme throughout #kasts_echo. http://pic.twitter.com/9Ch12f62

  25. Need a modder good at skinning before I can finish making the tool...

    1. Darth_Sapiens

      Darth_Sapiens

      skinning?

      skinning what?

      i skin, from scratch too.
