  1. Version 1.0.1

    9,687 downloads

    Short story: Repeating blasters were originally intended to give the user an additional attack in every round of combat (like twin-blade melee weapons do). This mod implements that effect. I.e. a character without force speed would normally do 1 attack when using a repeater, 2 when using rapid shot as well. Now, 2 attacks will be done when using the default attack and 3 when using rapid shot. Long story: After investigating in 2015 what could be the reason for repeaters costing more (500 vs 300) credits while having a worse crit range (5% vs 10%) than blaster rifles while having no advantage whatsoever, I found out that repeaters were originally intended to give the user an additional attack per round, sort of making them the double-blades of the blasters. Sadly, this was never implemented, as one internal item comment even comments on. I didn't know enough about scripting back then and quickly lost interest in fixing this. But now, more than 3 years later, it's finally fixed via scripting, placing the required code in the k_ai_master script. Known issues: Due to hardcoded mechanics, power blast can never do more than 1 attack, and sniper shot never more than 2. Normal attack appears to usually only do 2, but may rarely do 3 when using force speed as well. Sadly, these cannot be changed without access to the game code. This information turned out to be incorrect, and the user Darg727 made a fix for this. However, this has a downside: It works by making power blast and sniper shot always shoot 4 shots regardless of how many attacks are available, which looks very strange because all shots that don't have a corresponding attack round are auto-misses. For example, using a sniper shot with a blaster rifle or single pistol will cause 4 shots to be fired simultaneously, like a shotgun blast, with 3 of the 4 automatically hitting the floor/ceiling/wall. Using knight speed would allow 2 of those 4 to hit and only 2 would be an auto-miss, etc.... As per Darg727's upload permissions, I have included the responsible file (weapondischarge.2da) as an optional mod in the download for additional visibility for those people that might want to use the feature but would not come across his modification otherwise. Compatible with any mod that does not edit the k_ai_master.ncs file, and incompatible with any that does. (However, it is easy for any modder to add the compatibility, source is included.) Note that this fix works for both the player and enemies! This can make some fights of the game slightly more challenging.
  2. Version 2.0

    In KotOR 1 there is an obvious balancing issue concerning weapons that is especially noticeable in the early game, ie: Taris. What is it? Ranged Weapons are utterly outclassed by melee wepons. Yes, i know a stun stick isn't more powerful than a heavy repeater but I'm addressing the general problem here - In almost all situations you'll be better off charging at an enemy using your vibroblade instead of firing a blaster rifle, even when it seems like using a blaster would be the best option. The developers at Obsidian noticed this and in KotOR 2 blasters are now a viable option as well. So this mod changes the base stats of ranged weapons (damage, criticals etc.) to be like the ones on K2. But that's not all - I've also modified the lightsabers as well. Basically, ranged weapons and lightsabers will be statistically equal to their K2 counterparts; except for some weaponry damage values that i've kept unaltered purposely - It doesn't make sense that, for example, a disruptor and an ion pistol would do the same damage against an organic target. So following that: Blaster Pistols now do 1-8 damage instead of 1-6; Disruptors' critical threat range is now 18-20x2 instead of 20-20x2; Ion blasters' critical multiplier is now x3 instead of x2; Regular lightsabers now deal 2-20 damage instead of 2-16 etc... ____________________________________________ Haven't tested mod for K1R compatibility.
  3. View File Mining Laser Consistency Fix -Description- Some of the mining lasers on Peragus do one less damage than the others, are missing part of their description or use different grammar. One thing that annoys me about Peragus is that blasters have different stats, with some of them doing one less damage than standard blasters. Based on the storyline, they should probably all do one less damage. This mod fixes that consistency problem by giving all of the mining lasers a damage penalty of 1, instead of just some of them. So now single handed mining lasers do 1-7 damage, advanced mining lasers does 1-11 damage, and heavy mining laser does 1-15 damage. It also fixes: Some of the blasters/rifles do not show that they can't be upgraded Inconsistent appunctuation in the "Not Upgradeable" lines -Install- Drop all files from the Override folder into your game Override folder. -Compatibility- The Heavy Mining Laser was changed so that you'll get the same consistency with TSLRCM as well. I don't know of any mods using the same files but if there is then it won't work together with that mod. You'll have to choose which mod you want. -Bugs- There shouldn't be any. Let me know if there are. -Permissions- If you want to use it in your own mod, go ahead. You can also change anything else about it you like, distribute it, and give others permission to distribute it. But do give me credit. -Credits- Made with Fred Tetras Kotor Tool.

    Marauder Fix Pack

    Version 1.0.5

    2,206 downloads

    Marauder Fix Pack for KotOR II: TSL There is a new version 1.0.5, make sure to grab the 1.0.5 version of the zip. -Description- A collection of my fixes to upgrade items that had wrong descriptions or properties. It combines all the fixes I have done for TSL. -Fixes (incomplete list)- Fixed the Mandalorian Chamber Mark III doing 3-17 damage instead of 2-16 as in the description. Barab Ore Ingot now correctly shows 2-12 fire damage in the description instead of 2-16. Targetting Scope Mark I was changed to show that it in fact has a slow effect like the others and not a stun effect. Corrected Ion Cell Mark II to show that it does Ion damage like the others instead of Bludgeoning damage. Birestorative underlay Mark III (u_a_unde_14) was missing the word "upgradeable." at the end of it's description. Hurrikaine Crystal description changed to mention the property On Hit: Knockdown DC 18 which was missing before. Firkrann Crystal changed to show that it does Ion damage vs droids instead of regular Ion damage which was missing before. Various whitespace fixes. Various missing colons after "Massive Criticals". Fix for Ostrine edge not showing the requirements to use it. Added missing return carriage for Solari crystal. Many robes were missing part of their descriptions that mark them as upgradeable. Droid Anatomy Description Fix is now included in main install -Installation- Just double-click MarauderFixPackK2.exe, confirm your choice then tell the installer where the game path is. -Compatibility- For now this is still not compatible with 90SK's TSL Loot & Immersion Upgrade, but this will probably happen in the next point release. This mod will not overwrite anything however, meaning you can safely use it and still get some of the fixes whilst using other mods. -Copying- You have permission to alter this mod and redistribute your modified versions. I'm happy for you to repackage it, include it in your own mods, or upload it anywhere you like. I only ask to be mentioned as the original author of the mod. -Credits- Made with Fred Tetra's Kotor Tool Uses TSL Patcher for installing the mod

    This mod changes the requirements for droids to equip the Energized Armor set. You can find and equip these high level armors before you've levelled your droids, so this changes that so they need the Droid Upgrade Class 3 feat (level 13). Use it however you like, just mention me when doing so.
