What's preferred and what's different???

Recommended Posts

I've always been really curious with two major questions. What's preferred by the community? KotOR 1 Restoration or K1 Community Patch? I know they aren't compatible anymore from what I've seen. But I've always been curious what the community prefers and why, plus why they don't prefer the other not chosen.

Secondly What are the differences between them? I've read both readme's extensively. And without playing the game through which each mod separately I'm just curious from a simple explanation what's different and why they aren't compatible anymore.

All the modders are amazing here and I love all the work put into this game so thank you all.

K1R, as its name suggests, is primarily focused on restoring content that was cut from the game. I think the primary examples are an additional level of the Black Vulkar base on Taris and the Pazaak tournament on Manaan. It does include some bug fixes, but that isn't why people use it.

K1CP, on the other hand, is exclusively focused on fixing bugs and other issues. It makes the occasional quality-of-life change, but for the most part it is intended to be fairly seamless and unobtrusive.

As K1CP has expanded, the scope of changes it makes to various modules mean that it is no longer considered safe to use with K1R. There are certain types of changes that can't be integrated with TSLPatcher. Hard conflicts like two mods overwriting the same script that would require manual merging. I'm sure with some effort they could be made compatible, but nobody has expressed any interest or volunteered to create such a patch that I am aware of.
