Lightsaber Forms for KOTOR1

This mod introduces Lightsaber forms for Knights of the Old Republic.
I have created armbands to represent the seven different Lightsaber forms.

Armbands presented the most feasible way to be able to switch between forms.
Unfortunately there are limitations to using armbands ie: you can't increase
or decrease damage (since it's not a weapon), or add a negative value to an attack
modifier. To compensate I did things like edit the strength attribute to adjust damage(+/-)
as a workaround.

Form I - Shii-Cho

The Determination Form, also known as Shii-Cho
or Form I, is the basic style taught to beginners.

Attack Bonus: +1
Defense Bonus +3
Feat Required: Jedi Defense

Form II - Makashi

The Contention Form, also known as Makashi or Form II,
was specifically developed to combat other lightsaber users.

Attack Bonus: +3
Strength: +4
Defense Bonus: -3
Bonus Feat: Critical Strike
Bonus Feat: Improved Critical Strike
Bonus Feat: Master Critical Strike
Bonus Feat: Dueling
Bonus Feat: Improved Dueling

Form III - Soresu

The Resilience Form, also known as Soresu or Form III,
is a non-aggressive defensive style developed by the Jedi
specifically to counter blaster weapons.

Defense Bonus: +5
Blaster Bolt Deflection: +5
Strength: -6
Feat Required: Jedi Defense

Form IV - Ataru

The Aggression Form, also known as Ataru or Form IV,
it is an acrobatic style.

Form V - Shien

The Perseverance Form,
also called Shien or Form V, is an aggressive form
that does not sacrifice protection from blaster fire.
It is most effective when facing blaster-wielding opponents.

Form VII - Juyo

The Ferocity Form, also known as Juyo or Form VII, is a
very precarious fighting style that borders on the Dark side.

Extract all the files in the override folder to your 'Override' directory.
All source scripts are included in the nss folder.

How to

On Dantooine, after completing the dialog with Master Zhar, the one that gives you the
quest to complete the Jedi trials (right after you build your Lightsaber) check your inventory.
You will have received the Form I armband and a Jedi Holocron that will instruct you in the
other Lightsaber forms.

On the Ebon Hawk is a new computer in the main hold of the ship (the holo projector in
the center of the ship is now accessible). You can use the computer to access the Holocron.

Forms are learned at certain levels:
Form VI - Level 10
Form III - Level 11
Form IV - Level 12
Form V - Level 13
Form II - Level 14
Form VII - Level 16 (Jedi Guardians Only)

This mod is intended for the Main PC only. You may equip unused armbands on your Jedi NPC's
if you like or you can use the cheat console to add more armbands to your inventory for your
NPC's to use.

The codes for the armbands are:



Any mods that us the "onenter" script for the Ebon Hawk will not be compatible with this one.
To uninstall simply delete the files extracted to your Override directory.

Neat idea. Well done. :)

Nice mod DeathDisco! This should be a popular mod.

Great ! I think this is a very cool mod, makes me play kotor1 one more time. Although the style that borders on the dark side is vaapad, isn't it? Nevertheless, I will hoave a lot of fun with that. ;)

Great Job DD! :thumbsup:

I think you may just rejuvenate some interest in KotOR I with this one.. (you have for me at least.. hehehe ;) )

Wow, thanks for the nice comments :)

...Although the style that borders on the dark side is vaapad, isn't it?
The descriptions are taken from TSL but yes, Form VII is also known as Vaapad.

Could you do something like this for kotor2? make an armband like these? Though, you would be able to like double-form...but still!

And vaapad is Juyo? I did not know that...Boy ya learn something new everyday...

Um.. Probably not, there's no real point to make this for TSL being that it all ready has Lightsaber forms built in.

I think Vaapad is what FormVII evolves into by the time of
Mace Windu's era but I could be wrong about that.

Well I just thought that it would be cool if you could have an ultimate form or something of that nature...

Can someone upload this on kotorfiles please

Just a general FYI to everyone but posts like this one will no longer be tolerated here in T.U.C.E. If you have a problem with where a mod is hosted this is something to do via a Private Message with the mod maker, not to spam threads with these sort of posts. Also as DK pointed out below we do have the mod link request thread (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=167699). Sorry folks, but no more of these ok.

Also deathdisco has in his sig two alternate download places for his mods, making this post seem a little more like spam. -RH

And why not simply post here (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=167699) for it?

I posted direct download links (http://www.lucasforums.com/showpost.php?p=2131785&postcount=33) to all my mods hosted at pcgamemods on the first page of the
"Mod Link Requests from PCGM and other Sites" thread.

Nevermind. There is no post here.

Oh, wait. I modified the dialogue so that there is an option to exit when you activate the computer rather than having to insert a crystal to be able to have an exit option.

Dunno if this will ever see and update or not, but if anyone happens to be interested, one exists.

Just so you guys and gals know, Deathdisco has sent this mod to FileFront. No worries now on where to find it anymore. :D

Links have been updated in light of Filefront's demise.
Thanks to Darth InSidious for uploading them to DeadlyStream.
