View Full Version : [KOTOR] WIP: Ep2 style Jedi robes


Prime
03-05-2004, 04:36 AM
I've been playing around with the skins and I decided to have a go at making some Jedi robes that are similar in appearance to those worn by Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. The skin is still in the early stages and I have a lot of tweaking left to do, mostly with folds and that sort of thing. Here are some preliminary screenshots:

Robes 1 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes1.jpg)
Robes 2 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes2.jpg)
Robes 3 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes3.jpg)

I am also planning on having some different colour schemes, as I find the traditional brown kind of boring. Unfortunately, the model isn't too close to these kinds of robes, but hopefully the skins will be similar enough. Comments are welcome :)

IT looks good. Are you going to put it as a new robe in-game or do you just intend to have it replace an exsisting robe.

the belt and back could use some work, but the front, especially the collar area, looks fantastic.

I haven't looked at what is involved with adding a new item to the game, but I assume that it isn't too hard.

Really, I've only gotten as far as getting my texture pieces applied. I still need to tweek them and add detail. What are you thinking in particular with the belt? Right now it is just the default belt that was a part of the original texture.

Frankly, this skin has been a pain in the ass. I have done several JO and JA skins, but this one has been by far the most tedious. The big problem that for certain parts a straight line in the texture does not end up as a straight line on the model. Aaargh! :)

And this makes me appreciate ModView a lot more. I sure miss being able to check my changes before putting it in the game.

Tell me about it.

I'm working on some samurai "inspired" jedi robes. Inspired since I can't change the models. Coming along nicely so far but working with different prints on the robes is tough because of the stretching involved.

Nice work though Prime.

Yeah, I'd figured as much. I was thinking something simpler (fewer buckle-type details) and lighter colored, although still darker than the robes.

Looking good, Prime!!!

I wondered why Bioware didn't do something like this to begin with.

I'll be waiting for this one.

Here are some updated screenshots for the basic Jedi robe skin. It is quite close to being done, although I still have to do the hands. I'm thinking of going with bare hands, although that means that I'll have to do a skin for both white and black characters.

Although these new screenshots aren't vastly different from the old ones, I have played around a lot with the minor details. I'm still not totaly satisfied with the back, but with all the stretching done with the texture, it is probably the best I am going to be able to do with out doing details pixel by pixel.

Once I finish the hands and probably tweek it a tiny bit more, I'll start doing some different colour schemes. I have in mind a black and gray combo which should look okay. Any other ones people want to see?

Anyway, here are the screenshots...

Robes 4 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes4.jpg)
Robes 5 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes5.jpg)
Robes 6 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes6.jpg)
Robes 7... in action (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes7.jpg)

By the way, does anyone know what the texture names are for the heads? I'd like to have a look at them to get a good feel for the skin colours...

Cheers :)

man, those robes are really cool, i hope you release them soon. i like the color a lot, maybe for some alternate styles have the inner robes a different color from the outter robe

however, i still refuse to abandon my dream for long, floor length hooded jedi cloaks, too cool for school. sigh... curse you bioware and your uncrackable models!

Heads as in player model heads? Those are all like PxHy0n(Dn).

x = F for female, M for male.
y = A for Asian, B for Black, C for Caucasian
n = 0 - 5 (for each of the five head choices per race per gender)

The (Dn) is for Dark side textures. As you go further down the dark path, the game will look for a file of the same name (say for example PFHC01) adding on a D1 for the first, D2 for the second, D3 for the third, and just a D (no number at all) for the "fully dark side" version.

Anyhoo.. if you meant something else, just holler. ;)

Thanks lads :)

I'm hoping to release them sometime next week. I have the skins more or less done, but I need to create some scripts to go with them, which I haven't looked into how to do (although it sounds as though it is easy). I'll probably give the option to either replace certain robes for the player and/or npcs or use it as a new item.

Here is a screenshot of the dark robes I am working on:

Dark Robes 1 (http://torch.cs.dal.ca/~mroger/pics/robes8.jpg)

The shot is a little bright, as the robes are a little darker, but it gives an idea of what they look like. I still have some tweeking to do on these, but it shouldn't take too long...

Just FYI Prime,

Scripts are actually (almost) totally unnecesary for items. The simplest way to make the items available as either a replacement or as a new item would be to look into the threads about both possibilities and offer two different downloads for each item.

One would simply overwrite some other item (Jedi robes, master robes, dark master robes - whichever you pick)

The other, would create a new robe entirely (still based on the same baseitem). You would then need a script (or more likely, need to alter an existing script someplace) in order to place the item in the game without having to use cheats.

Just wanted to point this out in case it helps you along at all. :)

Oh, and also the robes are looking really nice. Not sure yet if they're quite what I'm looking for myself yet or not.. but I never know that until I actually get to try 'em out and play around with 'em a bit. ;)

They aren't the best skins in the world, but they are about as good as I can get them with all the stretching the game does with the texture.

You don't have to use a script you can easily just place as an item on an NPC that will join you or you could place them on an npc that you know you must kill. or you could add a simple giveitem scipt to an npc dialog. either way it is pretty easy to do( if you have the tools)

I always prefer newskins to be separate items,but the biege would be ok to replace the brown ones. :)

I'm pretty much finished the textures themselves. Now I just need to add them to the game. I'll try and put up some screenshots of the finished ones this weekend. They are pretty close to the previous screenshots though...

There seems to be several ways to go. I'm going to try and give players a few different options. I have downloaded a bunch of the tools floating around here. Is the kotor_tool all that I need, or is there another tool that would be helpful as well?

When useing Kotor Tool you should also have a gff editor in the same folder as KT so that you can still open unsupported GFF files(gff's are all the uti.utc,ect.)

To edit dialogs and scripts it is best to have Nwtoolset(you need NWN for that) If thats not an option you can still edit the .dlg files with the Gff editor(this is the hard way) to edit scripts you can use NWN Script Compiler( it's on the tools sticky under HazardX)

If you want to add items to NPC's then all you would have to is use KT to open a UTC(aka npc) and add the item to there iventory list, one problem with this is that for the items to be on the NPC the area must be new. By that I mean You can't have loaded that area so it may require the player to start a new game. :( :)

I probly forgetting something, but Im sure someone else will tell you what I didn't. Almost of the Games files can be extracted with KT so with that tool alone your 50% there. :D

Now all you have to do is decide how when an where the items will get into the game. there is one last option you could always make the uti for the retexture and get it in-game with the giveitem cheat. easyest way, but then the player has to cheat :cool:

Thanks for your enthusiasm though :) Don't worry, it won't be too long...

I've started to play around with putting the skins into the game, but I have run into some problems. I want to give the player some options with how the robes are added to the game. Below are some questions I have for each method and how to implement them. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. :)

1. Simply replace all the jedi robes with the new textures (whichever one the player wants)
This just involves replacing the required texture in the Override directory, which I have working fine.

2. Replace one of the Jedi robes but only when the player character wears them.
I haven't looked into this one too much, but I believe it involves editing the appearance.2da file. However, I don't know which entry I need to edit. Which entry is for the player character? Is that what I need to alter? The examples I have come across involve items that are already in the game.

3. Add a new item and then use the giveitem cheat to get them.
I have created a new .uti file called g_a_jedirobe07.uti which is a modified copy of the Qel-Droma robes (g_a_jedirobe06.uti). I have made these changes:
- removed the restriction for the light side alignment in the PropertiesList.
- changed Tag and TemplateResRef to have a value of "g_a_jedirobe07" (my texture and .uti name).
- changed TextureVar to "7"
- changed Description to "Robe7" (for now)
- changed DescIdentified to "Description" (for now)

After doing this, I have come across some issues:
- When I use the giveitem cheat I get the new robes added to my inventory, and all the stats and description is my updated version. However, when I equip these robes, it still uses the original default texture of the Qel-Droma robes. So I assume that something is still pointing to the real Qel-Droma robes. Does anyone know what I haven't changed properly?

4. Add them to an NPCs inventory.
I'm still thinking about it, but I'll probably add them to either Juhani's or Nemo's (?) inventory list. Can someone tell me which files I need to edit?

Thanks to anyone who can give me some help :D

T7nowhere
03-16-2004, 02:54 AM
1.You have this one covered.

2.you don't have to edit appeance.2da What you have to do is pretty much what you did for number 3. what ever robe you want to replace you just have to edit the template uti to point to your texture var. Thing with this is that you don't have very much leeway in how you name the texture for. the textures should be named PFBIxx.tga(female) and PMBIxx.tga(male) being the number for the texture Var(you want the # to be unique)

I wouldn't give the robe to juhani IMO it doesn't really make sense also a few people have already been using nemo to get there stuff in game. I would equipe the light color robe on Jolee and the dark one to one of the sith you encounter on tatooine or Kashykk. In the end it is up to you. :)

Last thing is if you have the textures named properly and the texture var set to the number of your texture. Then the only other reason that it might not be showing up is if your trying to use the texture for the male an a female character.
IF you still can't get it right you can send what you have to me and i'll see if I can find what if anything your doing wrong. Just PM me and i'll give you my email or I can help you out.

EDIT: oh ya I forgot to add say one thing when you make the Textures unique for a uti you will also have to edit a inventory icon or it will be a big white square.

shosey
03-16-2004, 03:48 AM
personally what I plan to do is just take the tga file and have my custom robes that I use in game now point to your texture. Thats the easiest and most convient for myself, but I can't speak for everybody :)

Prime
03-16-2004, 04:01 AM
Okay, so I got the robe working so that when you use the cheat code the robe is put in your inventory and you can equip it. Complete with the proper icon. So that's one down :)

I'm still unclear as to how I can make the new robe only appear when equiped by the player and not when NPCs use it. Is there a field I need to edit in the .uti file for the new robe? Is it possible with a new item? How would I do it with a regular item?

Also, where are the Jolee and Nemo (or any character's) inventory specified?

Thanks for your help and your patience. It is appreciated :)

P.S. Unfortunately I don't have a saved game which has other Jedi in my party to test the robe on NPCs. If anyone has one can they send it to me? (maroger@sympatico.ca) :p Or is there another way?

Jeez, Prime and his questions...

You can make the robe exclusive to the PC by making it Feat required Force Sensitive property. thats what i did for the DS mask I made.only the PC can have that feat normally.

edit: if you wanted to add it to jolee's equiped or inventory list you can find his template under BIFs->templates->character-> p_jolee.utc(the game uses this when he joins your party.

and you can find nemo's corpse under RIMs->modules->danm15_s.rim-> Placables->dan13_nemobody.utp

Jackel
03-16-2004, 04:43 AM
you can also have Jolee wearing the robe if you change the kas_something_jolee.uti files aswell

i made some new armour for Mission and put it on her for when you see her around and when she joins you

Again, thanks for your help. Hopefully it won't be long now before I get these out...

P.S. I haven't looked myself yet (I'm at work), but does anyone know what is the .uti file that specifies the attributes of the two super lightsaber crystals (Heart of the Guardian is one I think)?

Those would be g1_w_lghtsbr01 and g1_w_lghtsbr02 there are 34 properties that make the crystals what they are. if you want doulble or short there are g1_w_shortsbr01, g1_w_shortsbr02,g1_w_dblsbr001, g1_w_dblsbr002. there just lightsabers with different upgrade properties than the normal sabers.

Prime
03-16-2004, 03:32 PM
Thanks again,

Actually, I'm just interested in changing the saber blade colours of these. In hindsight, it is probably just easier to replace the textures in the Override folder...

T7nowhere
03-16-2004, 04:07 PM
Well it is easyer ,but if you hex edit a lightsaber mdl the color will be unique to one saber. :)

Prime
03-16-2004, 05:10 PM
I'm just looking to change them to the default blue colour. So I should just be able to extract the blue blade texture and rename it so that it replaces the teal colour in Override, correct?

T7nowhere
03-16-2004, 05:25 PM
yup. that'll work. OR you could extract the g1_w_lghtsbr01 and change the model Var to 1(which is the blue color) then save it to Override.

Either way is extremely easy :D

All I did was extract the the blue blade texture, make a copy, and renamed those two files to replace the turquoise and gold blades. I could probably make a little mod where I'll extract all the saber colours and put a readme showing what to rename the colour files to. Maybe I'll post that along with my skins. :)

1. A mod where the the black robes get replaced by my new dark robes, and the blue robes get replaced by my brown robes. In the readme I'll include steps to replace other robes if the player desires.
- I still have to write the readme, but the robes have been replaced.

2. A mod where the robes are added as new items accessable through the giveitem cheat.
- I have the robes added as new items. Now I just need to write the readme, write the robe descriptions and give them names, and create new robe icons.

3. A mod that adds the new robe items into the game without using cheats.
- Right now I am trying to decide where I want the robes to be found. I am going to use nemo for one (probably the brown robes). I'm not sure where I am going to put the dark robes, but probably in one of the tombs on Korriban. Does this sound reasonable? I'm open to suggestions. I don't have a saved game where NPCs join your party, so I am a little hesitant to do it that way because I can't really test it. Once this is done, I just have to write up the readme.

So I am pretty close to being finished :)

just an idea, since light side players will find the Qel-Droma robes on Korriban, but darksiders get no special robes until the star forge, perhaps add a few stats to "ajunta pall's robes" that would benefit a darkside player?? perhaps yet another (what are we up to, 50?) version so people can install the regular robes, or robes with qel-droma-esque stats

I have it so that the Dark robes, which have the same bonuses as the Qel-Droma robes, are found in the Ajunta Pall tomb. So the player can leave Korriban with Qel-Droma level robes for both sides of the Force :)

very nice prime - I was going to make my own robes with your textures and use the give cheat to get it, but I think I might play through withought cheating now - since you have a good location for the darkside robes :)

waiting with baited breathe :)

Prime : found out something interesting you might be interested in

the textures for the lightsaber in Jedi Outcast are the same size and bit rate as the ones in KotoR , so you could extract them out of JO and put them in KotoR

ive made the orange colour saber from JO my new gold colour saber texture , looks good

i personally think the KotoR saber colours look like halogen lightbulbs , they have a really bright core and a slightly fuzzy outside

I agree...the one on the left looks more menacing than the unmodified one

Finally, the robes are up. Just look for the Light and Dark Jedi Robes on my website here. (http://warped.prodns.tripod.com/games.html)

Also, I have posted a mod that allows you to change the lightsaber blade from one colour to another. So if you don't like the look of the turquoise or orange blades, you can change them. This mod can be found at the link above. They are under Lightsaber Blade Colour Replacement.

Feel free to post any feedback for these mods. And if you come across any bugs or issues, let me know.

Bon Appetit!

Finally! we all get to use these robes :) I am a little surprized that you didn't just make it look like there were gloves on the hands even Bioware didn't want to deal with that. I really like the the dark one :)

nice work.

Just to give a heads up, I've started a new thread for the saber colour change mod here. (http://66.90.64.18/showthread.php?s=&threadid=125758)

If you have any questions, please post them there :)

I've found something very strange. For some reason when I chose a black male and starting using the mod I had white hands... O_o

Prime
03-28-2004, 06:29 AM
If you are going to use a black male, you need to extract the PMBI07black.tga or PMBI08black.tga file into your override directory instead of the the PMBI07.tga or PMBI08.tga files. Once you extract either of these (along with the other files if necessary), remove the "black" part of the file name so that you will end up with either PMBI07.tga or PMBI08.tga.

I hope that made sense :)

What files do we put in if we want the tanned one?

Prime
03-30-2004, 12:00 AM
It should all be explained in the included readme, but the files for the brown robes are:

PMBI07.tga
g_a_jedirobe07.uti
dan13_nemobody.utp
ia_jedirobe_007.tga

Hi Prime, I sent you a PM question about the robes, did you receive it?

Prime
03-30-2004, 08:21 PM
I did now :)

I'll answer your question here in case others are wondering the same thing. You asked:

Hi Prime, I just wanted to say wonderful work on your KotOR robes and ask a question. I downloaded Loros' Anakin style robes but I don't use cheats or access stuff via console, since he lost all his work, he won't be able to put the robes ingame. Next best thing I could come up with is substituting one of the robes in your pack for the Ani ones so they appear ingame for me. Is this possible and would you know how I could do it? Thanks a lot and again excellent job on the robes, I like them a lot.To do this, you could take the Anakin robes' .tga file, and rename it to PMBI07.tga. This should replace the brown robes with the anakin robes in-game. If you want to replace the dark robes, rename Anakin's file to PMBI08.tga.

Archonon
03-30-2004, 08:51 PM
Thanks so much, I'll be examining the robes closely since I want to use your robes as well as the Anakin ones. I do like the brown robes though so I'll probably replace the red and blue robes with your version and Anakin's robe.

Thanks again for all your help, the robes are uber-cool.

Prime
03-31-2004, 01:57 AM
Another option would be to just replace one of the robes that comes with the game. You would to that in the same way, just alter the name to reflect the robe you want to replace:

PMBI01.tga = brown
PMBI02.tga = black
PMBI03.tga = red
PMBI04.tga = blue

Someone can correct me if I have the numbers wrong...

SUp Prime! First off, great job on the robes! I was wondering though, would you have any future plans on making the robes compatible with female PC's?:D :D :D All of my games thus far have been with female characters, and while the robes look do look pretty dope on Jolee, I think they'd look even better on my female PC:D Especially the dark one! That one on her would look soooooooo sweet , heheh.

peace

Prime
04-04-2004, 06:03 PM
I'll look into it. I have to judge how much work it takes to do a female version. Frankly, I am not keen about starting a female set from scratch. If it is a simple transfer, I'll probably do it... :)

numark79
04-05-2004, 05:18 AM
Oh ic, coo coo! I hope it's just a simple transfer, i take that something in the game makes the robes that come with the game interchangeable no matter what jedi they're on? Sorry, I am so mod illiterate LOL, I wish you luck if you do decide to make it happen ! ( Pleeeeeease?:D Yo I'd pay you to do it if it comes down to it, :D )

peace
btw, that saber mod is terrific as well! Having the turqoise MotF color throughout the game is going to be sweeeeet. =P

Actually, I was confused about this at first, since the textures appear to be exactly the same for both males and females, even though they are in different files. It seems that this works for the default skins because of the way the textures are layed out. Basically, the textures are warped differently depending on which model they are on. However, the areas that get warped differently are for the most part only areas that have folds and not more specific features. Since folds are pretty random anyway, these differences look fine and aren't noticable.

The problem with my skins are that some of these areas have more than just folds. There are areas which have "straight lines" which make the differences in warping much more obvious, to the point where the robe looks all wrong.

Bioware's way of doing this is actually very clever indeed. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for my custom robes. I'd have to do these parts of the robes over again to get everything lined up properly. :( Unfortunately I don't really have the time right now.
