Looking for a place to host your mod?


LucasFiles (http://www.lucasfiles.com): LucasFiles is another member of LFNetwork (just like StarWarsKnights.com) and it is the only officially endorsed site by LucasArts (http://www.lucasarts.com/press/releases/61.html) where you can upload/download mods.

Should you have any problems uploading your mods at LucasFiles, contact me.

Also, we will soon add a live list of the latest mods submitted to LucasFiles in the KotOR section on our webpage, StarWarsKnights.com (http://www.starwarsknights.com/) to give your KoTOR mods some more visibility. We strongly encourage modders to submit their mods, old and new, at LucasFiles.

LucasFiles will also host our Featured Mods files. The latest mods submitted to LucasFiles are now automatically listed on our main page: http://www.starwarsknights.com and on our featured mods page (http://www.starwarsknights.com/mod_week.php).

You are free to upload your mods where you want but it would be nice to keep a centralized place such as lucasfiles and pcgamemods where the majority of modders upload their mods so they are easily accessible. When you look for somehting, you know where to go.

Yeah I'm aware fileplanet tends to be slow but I have seen one mod there which is the dantooine aftermath. I figured this thread was here as a method of mentioning alternatives that were not listed above, which is what fileplanet is. Truth be told that is where I found out about this community for modding. Yet there is nothing really there.

Hmm, reviews and screenshots of KotOR Mods might not be a bad idea, but we're turning into JK3 modding boards with all these different locations. :D Don't want to go down that Dark Path, eh Skye?

I'll be sure to kill it from the list. No good hosting mods on it if you can't even do anything with the site ;)

There's also www.freewebtown.com - 1gb bandwidth/month, no ads, FTP access, 20mb space, no file size or type limits (other than the 20mb) and a lot of features as well. No PHP support though; they killed that after someone tried to take down their servers...

okay, 2 wee questions,

1) why can i post my mod on PCGM, it always comes up with file not found when i choose the section where i want the mod.

2) i've done everything for LucasFiles, sent the E-Mail with mod, got e-mail saying it will be up in 24 hours -------- waited and nothing, must i wait longer? or must i do it again??

i dont want my own site, becoz i like the fact that the majority use PCGM and LucasFiles so there would be no use. so im stuck for the moment.

1) For pcgamemods, a common made mistake (especially here recently) is using "special" characters in your mod .zip filename. Don't use commas, apostrophes or punctuation (except periods). Stick with letters & underscores if you can. It's mis-leading because you actually go through the whole process of 'uploading', but then *poof* File Not Found error shows it's nasty face (I've had this happen to me one too many times...hehe). Try re-uploading it with a different (more simple) name.

2) Lucasfiles can sometimes have lengthy waiting periods. My Juhani Dark Robe took almost 2 weeks for it to show. My guess is because it's an Official mods depot, each mod has to go through a 'screening'. Depending who and how many are on staff...and/or the legal consequences they could suffer for a 'mistake', I'm sure the mod gets examine head to toe. The good thing is, Lucasfiles traffic is pretty good and download tallies can shine almost as well as pcgamemods...

Hey all,
I was just wondering something. With TSL for the PC available in under 2 weeks, modding is going to eventually happen. For most of us, we each have our own sites to host our mods, BUT we all know the convenience of using pcgamemods as a central depot.

1) Is there going to be a TSL section at pcgamemods. I understand it's not a site maintained by Lucasforums, but was wondering if there has been "negotiation talks" or an arrangement (or hell, a desperate plea & good ole fashioned ass-kissing;) )

2) If not, are we to upload TSL related mods to the Kotor Section (I can see poblems developing here unless there's massive backwards compatibility). If we DO decide to upload mods there (in Kotor Section), should we at least agree to mark it in either the mod description or filename?

ie -

1) TSL_ChAiNzFeebleMod.zip

or in the description:

2) "This mod was developed for TSL. My mod description...blahblahblah"

Just wondering if anyone else has any ideas or thought of this?

Darkkender
01-25-2005, 03:26 PM
I would say as long as we mark our mods with big neon lights from now untill pcgamemods has a TSL section we probably won't have problems with people trying to load a TSL mod into KOTOR 1. However since we can't have a big flashing banner that says this is a TSL mod we may want to have about twenty different references in the mod title, description, mod name, and Readme. Otherwise our own personal sites and lucasfiles might be less of a headache.(One of the reasons I've been working hard on completing the development of my own site.)

Yo. I asked Sergio about this, and he gave it the big thumbs up, so look out for a KOTOR II section at PCGM soon!

Incidentally, the KOTOR section has been, in my view, the most friendly and easy to run section that PCGM has ever had by a mile. I'd like to take the chance to say what a good community this is, and how amazed I am by the helpfulness and deceny of its members. Its no surprise that Sergio would be happy to have a KOTOR II section really, the first was a big success for the site.

I'm retiring from my PCGM admining, I've emailed several people from the KOTOR community who have helped me out these past months, so hopefully you'll get some great new admins there. Appologies for monentarily hijacking this thread as a platform... but I'd like to thank everyone who has used the KOTOR section at PCGM for making it so enjoyable to admin. Finally, I'd like to say Sergio deserves a lot of credit for what he has done at PCGM, good on him. I now return you to your normal forums service, bye all :)

You're my hero Kengo! That's great news! Guess I'd better stock up on Chap-StickŪ huh? ;)

I'm sorry to hear that :(
Though the KotOR section and members here at Holowan will miss your "always there to the rescue" dedication, I'm sure you have your reasons. That doesn't mean you're going to be a stranger here is it?.... naaaahh that would be 'inconceivable' (we hope)
Finally, I'd like to say Sergio deserves a lot of credit for what he has done at PCGM, good on him. I now return you to your normal forums service, bye all :)
Indeed. Without the help of Sergio and pcgamemods, I know my site would be feeling the "brunt" of my mods traffic. Much thanks goes to him and what he's done for this Community.

Thanks Kengo for going to bat for us and getting this set up. We owe you alot! :D

PLease If your uploading TSL mods to the KotOR Section at PCGM use this [TSL] Tag. It will make My job of Moving all the TSL mods to the TSL section from the KotORsection Much easyer when that section is up. It will also prevent People looking for KotOR mods getting confused and Installing a TSL mod into KotOR.


btw: how come Most people are not uploading screenshots for reskins? :confused:

I do use that tag T7.:p

but I forgot to include the screenies for the segan jedi armors when I upload it I guess I should go do that.

I wasn't pointing fingers, Its Just that I came Back after being away for 2 days to find several TSL mods posted without TSL in the title, this can be confusing to some people so I added the TSL tag to those mods. It will also make moving the mods when the TSL section is up much easyer for me ;)

As for ScreenShots There is no rule that says you have to post them and in fact there are mods that don't need a screen But personally I think it does add professionalism to the mods. Also I won't even consider downloading a mod that has a visual change without first seeing a screenshot.

Pretty good if you just want your own website to update people about your mods and such but not very good for hosting due to low bandwith. But IMO better than Geocites

I wonder if that site is an actual "we get our paychecks with a picture of skywalker ranch on it real? or just a subsidary?

The reason I ask is I wonder if they will simply upload mods "for us" as filefront.com (or whatever that site was that kept stealin' our stuff :rolleyes: )

Not sure about the "legals"... but Lucasfiles is the 'sanctioned' to go for place for mods...

I've had very good relations with them in the past (Hornet is especially nice)... and have never had a problem with them..

When I wind up converting my mods over to an acceptable .zip format, I'll submit more of my TSL mods over there... (or just pack my .rar in a zip.. hehehe) :lol:

anywho, the "short" version is:

Lucasfiles = Good ;)

LucasFiles= us (It's ran by the same people who run LucasForums)

LucasFiles is part of LFNetwork (just as Starwarsknights.com, Holowan Labs and LucasForums ) which benefits from a special (and lenghty) agreement with LEC. LucasFiles is joint project of both LFNetwork and LEC :)

In fact, legally speaking, it's the safest place to upload your mods...and it's good for us too ;)

I made my mods before the kotor section was setup so that's why they're not there but I'll be uploading them as soon as I get time to polish them a bit more.

Well if we get one :newbie: question a week I just asked it...lol

"Is it safe for us to host mods made by us with us."...ooh what a Maroon ;)

Those sites can be a valuable asset to the modders here, so Thank You for your efforts :)

Actually, jk3files isn't a KoTOR modding site. But kotor.filefront.com got a new staff, myself included, a couple of months ago, and we don't steal other modder's work off of other sites. In fact, I think JediKilla is preparing an apology to the modders who were offended by the previous staff's actions.

Have fun modding everyone :)

Get winrar or winzip, select your files, right click and select add to .zip or add to archive (winrar) :

(note that you can also open winzip or winrar first and then selecdt the files you want to add in as well as the compression method and more)

I use Kotorfiles.com, they have quick uploads, and the users can comment on and rate your files.

I tried lucasfiles.com once but they never uploaded my file :(. I must have done something wrong though, I'm sure they are a reliable site.

EDIT: Also, when conisdering places to upload, remember that if you upload to all of them you can get more users to download your mod.

@Darth333, Then why does it only have 31-KI and 16-TSL, if it's the only "Official" site then you'd think LA would've gone after PCGamemods?

@Gsccc, Actually I was originally just looking to share files back and forth for testing purposes, as my e-mail wouldn't do it. I used rapid share, and I don't have anything to compare it to, but I thought it was pretty good.

Because there have only been 31 K1 and 16 TSL files approved for downloading on the site. Also most people don't submit their mods to the website. If you look at the majority of release threads they either have "my site!" or "pcgamemods.com" links only. I wouldn't bother putting my mods on the website as it doesn't seem popular at all no matter the game while pcgamemods.com has a hell of a lot of mods (not all good but hey).

I think it was Rise of the Sith for Kotor 2, It could have been Reign of the Sith for K1 or A new foe beta for K1, but i am pretty sure, almost positive it was Rise of the sith, and it just never got put up. I think maybe they didnt approve of it because of file size.

Thanks to Visac and Darth333, all recent KotOR/TSL mods submitted to LucasFiles.com (http://www.lucasfiles.com) are now listed at the top of Starwarsknights.com's News Page (http://www.starwarsknights.com) and on the Featured Mods page (http://www.starwarsknights.com/mod_week.php).

With a bit more of his magic, Visac will soon turn this dynamic list into an RSS news feed. News of your mod will travel to millions of computers around the world so they can all see the pink lightsabers, the new romance mod, or the wicked Sith mask you've been working on. It's free publicity from the only download site officially endorsed by LucasArts. :thumbsup:

With the apparent loss of PCGM, KotORForce.com has taken the liberty of creating a mods database for KotOR and TSL. We also have a section for Tools and Tutorials. We're hoping to expand the database greatly over the next few weeks.

If you would like to upload your mods to our database, please feel free to do so. I would also like to request that everyone upload all the tutorials and tools they can.

The files that are already uploaded were present on the old KotOR.com mods site, and have simply been moved to a new and better server. If you see a file of yours there and would like it removed, contact myself via email, or PM me at either KotORForce.com or here at LucasForums.

That might be a bit hard to do, since clicking the "Downloads" button on that site only takes you to a page that says "No Categories Defined.", with no information or links about how to upload things. ;)

Seems to look differently now, so they apparently changed the page after I was looking at it.

I've mentioned it to Rasp. Here's what he said:

For now, guests will not be able to download. Perhaps in the future, though. I'm not worried about the downloads database drawing in members.
Sorry guys. I may be an SM, but I can't edit the permissions... it wouldn't be a good idea for me to do so anyway.

Edit: Time to thank Tarados Qeng. He's convinced Rasp. Guests can now view and download mods.

I know for a fact that I have never uploaded that mod to anywhere except for My Site, PCGM, LucasFiles & FileFront. And only *I* should be the one submitting my mods anywhere...

Not blaming you Doc, just wanted to make you aware that someone may have in the past submitted this without my knowledge (and definitely not with my permission) ;)

Also, I still can't view the mods without having to register...

08-18-2006, 12:00 AM
Doc, you should definitely bring up the issue about redistributing mods without other people's permission with the other people at that site. The previous staff of kotorfiles did that a while ago, and their name was Mud at Holowan. Even their apology thread had to be closed. Assuming that the staff at KotORForce is copying mods other than Chainz's, I would strongly recommend that you put a stop to it. While you'll probably get a lot of mods in the short term by doing that, it discourages modders from submitting files to your site. It could cause even more controversy with the statement I found at your site:

"The material you wish to access is proprietary. Please confirm that you will not make copies or distribute it to others without permission."

If your fellow staff members have been copying files, that statement might even be grounds for legal action.

The Doctor
08-18-2006, 12:06 AM
I'm on it right now actually, Devon. ;)

I'm removing all mods by modders I know (RedHawke, ChAiNz, Darth333, etc.), and I'm going to make a post or ten on KotORForce about posting mods. It'll work like this:

If someone wants to submit a mod, they have to send it to me personally first. I will contact the author of the mod myself, regardless whether I'm told they were contacted or not. Only once I'm sure permission has been given will I post the mod.

The bolded word above would be my wild prediction of the chances of success of this particular file repository given the current circumstances, unfortunately. Neither LucasFiles nor KotorFiles.com requires any forum registration just to access materials submitted by others. The apparent ambivalence of the site staff doesn't bode well for the longevity or reliability of the service either.

It does strike me as somewhat peculiar to go through the trouble of offering a service if you aren't really interested in people using it. Or to advertise it here if it's primarily intended as a service for the KF forum members. :)

PCGameMods is broken and has been for a long time. Given how long it has been broken with seemingly nothing done to fix it it's doubtful that it will return to working order any time soon. If you are looking for a particular file from it you can request it in this thread (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=167699). If you want to upload a mod, try LucasFiles (http://www.lucasfiles.com) or KotorFiles (http://www.kotorfiles.com) instead.

I'm with you and Prime on this DK.

Doc, I mean no offense as I'm sure your intentions are only good, with trying to provide another place to host mods since PCgamemods has been "unreliable" as of late, but I believe we had a problem a while back with a site hosting mods the creator didn't upload, I believe it was Kotorfiles actually... don't remember. Anyway, I was browsing the avaliable mods and some of the older modders stuff was in the Kotor section, people like gameunlimited and Talchia whom, granted I've been away a while, but I haven't heard from them in a while and I doubt they submitted the mods themselves, but if they did I apologize.

They were uploaded to mods.kotor.com around three years ago.

I'm afraid that some people seem to think that I have the capability or authority of changing the permissions myself. I don't. It's up to rasp. He's adament about users having to register in order to download a mod, in hopes that those members will post on the regular forums after they register.

We did (did being the key word)... since then, there has been new management and I've worked with them to re-establish a good relationship with them :)

Kotorfiles = FileFront (whenever I'm referencing it)... ;)

I've uploaded all of my mods over there as a show of faith and Shem, Jedikilla & InyriForge have been nothing short of superb at keeping the "new & improved" site under careful watch. I support them and Kotorfiles/FileFront fully now :)

Yeah. Most of the KotOR 1 files are now safely backed up, as are a vast majority of the TSL files.

As Stream said, working out how to distribute them again isn't important right now. The most important thing is, as he said, to back everything up safely.

Just a Question or two: are you breaking the whole distribution ethics sanctity deal by uploading mods you have to a password-for-download secure server?

I distribute my (haphazardly) archived mods personally via email address. Snag is I cannot go to storage, get discs, look through them (with thousands of files besides several hundred other mods) and distribute on every request I get. I know uploading them to an open place like kotorfiles is a nono without author's permission...but is there seriously no other way I can make it easier on myself to share old PCGM mods?

The 'capper' honestly is publicly linking to it out right. Pretty much the same no-no as uploading to Kotorfiles without permission.

If you want to make it easier, you can upload the files to your storage medium of preference, however you MUST keep the link(s) personal/private.

This is pretty much how I have my archive of mods up on JumpStationZ. However, to DL anything, you need to receive a PM/email by me giving you the proper link.

The understanding is... If I EVER catch a link to my archives posted elsewhere (publicly).. I will password the directories. Or be a real ass and take down the whole archive no matter the loss.

Leechers beware :devsmoke:

If this doesn't look appealing to you, unfortunately there's not really much choice left. If it's a burden to look up the mods/links.. you can give your archive link (privately) to a choice member(s) to help you watch over the requests thread. If you're not around to hand out the link, then your wing (wo)man can .. hehe.

I request an admin/mod add NexusMods (and Imgur) to the first post in this thread.
