In search of your feedback! DAP II

At the moment, I am adding two new merchants. Now, one of these stores will contain rare items, which are the hardest to come by. Within the other store, I will add things such as med packs, parts, etc... Here is where you can come in: While going through the game, there are items that are essential. If you know of any items, which you believe are important, please let me know.

how about certain plot items, say like the hk-47 parts, so you could have him in your party much sooner?

Yeah! Thats a cool idea!

Plot items that don't affect the main game play, but will be available earlier.. Nice idea!

Clone Wars Battle Armor that don't need a 2.da and actually work

Clone Wars Battle Armor belongs to another modder. I allready have three other robes and lightsabders, which were created by T7nowhere, Commas, and Darth Moeller. I have also created one new robe set and a new armour set. I will be adding the Bastilla Clothes. On top of all that, I have created special clothes for a KotOR I NPC. However, the NPC from KotOR I was never a playable character. The clothes I made for the new Jedi Master are available to also wear. If you add all that up, you will get a lot of items.

(See above for a revamped list of items.)

I don't think that was what he intended to mean, maybe he meant something along the lines of "All of those other great and fantastic mods by those great modders don't work on my computer, so I was wondering if you could make one that does :D" but hell I don't know him so *shrug* who knows

Quick update has been made!
(See main post for details.)

As of last weekend, I was able to finish the placement of the NPC, Placeables, and Merchants. I was also able to finish the designing of the new armor and robes. At the moment, the following items need to be complete:

1. New Icons
2. All dialogue. (For DAP II)
3. Very Little Scripting
4. Testing
5. Screens
6. See below, for you can help.
7. Fixing the inventory for the merchants.

Release date is still unknown. Since I want to design the mod right, I will be taking my time to finish it. Also, homework has been a bugger!!!

Release date is now set: October 22nd...
Dark Apprentice: Gold will be released on October 22nd. Since there are technical difficulties, because of the rain, I had to reschedulle the mod's release date. However, I will not be posting the mod under the name MacLeodCorp. I will send more details as final steps are made. I thank you all for putting up with my whining, moaning, and nonscense. I have been working hard to bring something new, and I hope you will all enjoy the new mod. If you are intrested in knowing what this mod involves, please feel free to go here:
http://www.lucasforums.com/showpost.php?p=1866968&postcount=1

I also have screen promotionals for the mod, which will also make their apperance upon its release.

I welcome all feedback. I also have been working on a final release date for the Telos: Billboards Set IV. When Dark Apprentice: Gold is released, I will also fill you in on the Billboards Set's release date. Because of class work, and job search, I have not been modding. I thank you all for your patience.

I have taken in all the feedback from version one, and changed the foilowing:
1. Finish the Story... hehehe
2. Reveal all Apperance.2da edits.
3. Create a more comprehensive readme.
4. Sith in one of the Khoonda rooms needs to be more noticeable.
5. Create maps, which come with the set, so people will know what changes were made.

I thank everyone for their time and patience... I also thank the creative people who made the tools necessary for modding the KotOR Series. Everyone has put a lot of time and energy in making this place fun.

cool mac, ive always liked your mods, i seem to remember a black dancers outfit in one of you telos billboard mods that would be awsome to get from bastila(sorry "The Dark Apprentice"). keep up the good works, while i havent released any official mods i have made a few stuff, mostly just the renaming of files. but i wouldnt mind testing your mod once through if ya still need a tester, if so just pm the proto type and ill take a look through.

Is this mod going to be compatible with the USM adn Holowan Plugin?

Is this mod going to be compatible with the USM and Holowan Plugin?

To be honest, I don't know if it will be compatible with Holowan. If I made the mod compatible for one mod, then someone will want me to make it compatible with another. Instead, what I did was create a small section in my readme file, which I pointed out what elements I changed in the Heads.2da and Apearance.2da. If I were to make this mod compatible with other mods, there would be so many changes. Since I like just about every mod here, I would be intended to make it compatible with all of them. So, I advertised my edits in the readme; therefore, people can make changes on their own. It was the best solution I could think of, and based upon the advice I got in the past, it was the best solution overall. T7Nowhere made a lightsaber, which is compadible with the USM. Therefore, the edits will be very minimal.

Okay...

Just wondered... What about an installer like what some of Chainz mods has? I'm really horrible with 2da editing, so that's why I'm asking. I think that uses one of Stoffe -mkb-'s tools.

Release Update:
Since I am having problems with seeing the mods over at pcgamemods.com, I will be releasing the mod at LucasFiles. It will be a LucasFiles Exclusive mod.

wolfshadow - An installer seems pretty cool. I downloaded an installer program. I will do some testing and see what happens... Nice Idea!

hiya MacLeodCorp
I like seeing new and different things in the game, Ala new mods. I liked your DAP, thou i cant say if i beat it finished it or what heh ). I liked how you did it, I liked how it looked I liked how it installed it gave me ideas on what can be done.

so heh if your asking ID rather see more of that, it seems adding new planets and the like is a total pain but working with areas we have in Fred's great KT. And just rehashing them isnt so bad. cant wait for the newer version of DAP and thank you again for your help in my scripting issues )

The one that I will be uploading tonight will be an extended version of the original. I added a better conlcusion and fixed many issue. In the main post, I made a small list of changes that I made.

After I get some feedback, from this upcoming version, I will think about a newer story. DAP II was assimulated into the original version.

Thanks for your kind comment! :)

Some other concepts I have been working on are tittled:

The Apprentice's Will
I have a sketchy idea about what is going to be in this one...

Night Club on Telos
This will not be a replacement, but an additional Cantina.

Before I do more work on the above, I am going to finish up Telos: Billboard Set IV...

The Apprentice's Will sounds like it'd cool...
I am kind's anxious to see the new billboard set too...
and the new cantina (night club) sounds interesting...

i'm not sure if someone has already mentioned or asked for this or not, but a mod (story) of some background on Kreia would be cool, before meeting her on Peragus 2... maybe incorperate some background story in there somewhere... maybe she could tell her story to the player character through-out the game... just an idea...

F.Y.I.
I will be opening a new website in a few weeks, so people will be able to see all the mods I have available. I will be uploading the new DAP at LucasFiles.com.

TheOssusKeeper - That Kreia idea sounds pretty cool! I will have to look up her past, and use some artistic license..

I don't think there is a lot known about her past, but you could take what we do know and fill in the blanks... it won't necessarily have to be 100% accurate, just really interesting... and you could place it in your apprentice's will mod...

At the moment, I am working on my last two mods. For a while anyway... I walked away from modding breifly, but I keep getting sucked back in. Fred is working on making a map for the 'Entertainment' sector on Telos, and I will be finishing off the Telos: Billboard Sets with a big bang. The series that brought me into modding and LucasForums will be my way of saying thank you to everyone. After my KotOR II high is over, I will be getting into 'Empire at War'. I know it is a little ways off... I thought it would be cool to mark my absence with Telos: Billboards Set: IV..

At the moment, I am also working on 'Apprentice's Will'...

I thank everyone for their patience. Tonight, I will be looking through all the feedback, which I have missed for the past four weeks. During the remainder of the week, I will be fixing some of my mods, and I have plans on a surprise release. I am also contructing a website, which will have a library of my KotOR II mods.

Before I start, if you have any requests, please let me know as soon as possible... Tweaks, completions, etc... Let me hear it...
