  1. I'd say treat a mod trailer like a videogame teaser rather than a (now defunct) E3 trailer. Show the best examples of what you've added and really use the opportunity to introduce the viewer to some of your characters or themes. Don't hype the viewer up with amazing music and pre-rendered videos when the final product won't look or sound anything like either. Don't show how you wish the mod will look, just show what it actually is.

    Does this also fix the walkmesh not matching the area geometry, where in certain places you would sink into the ground?
  3. Jedi Outcast remains one of my favorite games. I will definitely check this out.
  4. Wait, so the armor dexterity effect was capped at a maximum limit? What happens gameplay wise when you uncap it?
  5. I've honestly never had a site force me to leave so quickly.

    Yeah, originally I thought this was going to blow over, but I can't keep using a site that forces me to sign those kind of terms.

      They can prevent you deleting the page, but they can't stop you swapping out the mod files for a dummy archive with nothing in it. Supposedly it's about preventing people from screwing up their mod manager/installer API when using compilation mod lists, but doing that would be "sticking it to the man" I guess. Although I suspect that functionality is really only relevant for Elder Scrolls and Fallout mods.

      @jc2 Here's what you should do...

       

      * Find the mod you want to do a dummy archive with, and count how many files is in said mod and be sure to remember the exact names.

      * Then go to another folder, create a bunch of TXT files and rename them to the exact names of your mod files. If my theory is correct, these "mod files" would just break the game as their just renamed TXT files.

      *Delete the tslpatcher.exe with a "tslpatcher.mp3".


      What is "tslpatcher.mp3" you might ask?

      Well...

      Spoiler

       

       

      This way we can "stick it to the man" and "do a little trolling" at the same time. Of course, this is a monster dick move... but since it's Nexus should we really care though?

      It wouldn't even do anything even if it was a proper TSLPatcher mod, since Vortex can only manage basic Override installs anyway.

  6. Awesome. That is great to hear. Yeah, I must have missed the edit, but it's good to know everything's working.
  7. Alright. Thanks for the heads up. I will look into both of those mods and try to parse what's interfering. Hopefully it's an easy enough fix.
  8. Your reasons weren't my problem. This was my problem. Leaving a statement like this is dismissive and leaves no room for discussion. A patch could possibly be made in the near future. Things like that happen all of the time, we could even have a lengthy debate on the various issues that need to be addressed in a separate thread. If you had just said, "there are many issues with this version, so there should be a patch made in the near future" then there would be no harm done. However, this needs to be taken elsewhere. This page is for issues with the mod and I would like to abide by that, which is why I tried to move this to a PM.
  9. Downvoting is fine. Disputing a change that was made a long time ago and having that reflect on the older mod page is not. My implication was that you can just as easily vote your disagreements in a Profile Update or even the TSLRCM M478 EP Feedback page instead of the download page. If there are others who agree, then possible changes can be discussed without involving the download page. You could even list your litany of disagreements on its own dedicated blog for others to respond to. There are numerous other options you can choose. A totally reasonable criticism. I too was not a fan of that decision, but it's simple enough to have a discussion of such things instead of taking it out on the mod page. (I also wasn't too fond of the teleport droid, but it was simple enough to ignore) Noted. Still suggesting that people go offsite because of a specific gripe you have with the mod doesn't help matters. We all have strong opinions about this of which is understandable. However, such disagreements can be easily debated elsewhere. This will be the end of my discussion on this page. If you want to talk further about this, there are numerous places in which we can do so.
  10. So your solution is to downvote it then promote a pre-TSLRCM build because they did something that they had no idea you didn't like onto a thread last updated a year ago? Surely there are better ways to voice your discontent. There is a reason that Thread Necromancy is listed in the rules. If you keep bringing up old threads while the original posters are long gone and thus can't defend themselves, you paint their mod in a negative light and give new users an inaccurate impression.
  11. If you didn't like it, why didn't you post your concerns back when the changes were announced? Your account was created in 2016, well before all of these changes were implemented. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but the teleportation was optional based on when you talk to the Fast Travel droid. The only thing I can agree with is that the quest was awkwardly written, but to go out of your way to say that the earliest build from an alternate site is somehow better is frankly disingenuous.
  12. Hmm.. I think that the crest added some much needed color contrast to the suit. (The bright red looked good with the rest of the colors) However, I agree that the way it was added in Vanilla was completely wrong. Perhaps adding some bright reds into the arms, or adding some of the browns into the chest just to give some color variety so it looks less dark? I know this might sound odd, but the bright yellow seemed to look better. especially when put alongside that green. One way I think to solve issues you're having with the pauldrons would simply be to darken the arms (or at least the whitish stripe down the arms) so that the viewer's eye immediately goes to the pauldrons first. That's just my opinion, of course. They are starting to look a lot better than Vanilla, which in my mind is always a plus.
  13. The trouble is, as a modder you should eventually be able to create the content without support. Eventually you have to stop relying on others to tell you how to do these things and force yourself to learn with the tools at your disposal. This may require you to take some classes to learn C or watch tens of hours of Youtube tutorials. When it boils down to it, the one who determines whether a project is successful is you and you alone. I have abandoned many projects of my own because of my own lack of knowledge, and sometimes if you don't find the resources, that's just a reality of making content. I am aware I sound somewhat harsh, but to use hype to convince people to work on a project which you yourself are unwilling to learn is taking advantage of those very people, and this is something a majority of mod makers including myself do not stand for.
  14. No shame intended. Just a clarification of the rules and even some potential solutions so you can avoid bloating the site.
