DLC
04-18-2006, 08:29 PM
I'm starting to get a bit bored of the same old stuff, so I would like some one to make me a few new planets like Coruscant or something, and ofc a few side quests in there, I do not have the skill nor time to mod my self so if anyone would do this for me I would highly appreciate it. Also about the side quests, I am giving free hands to the person who would create this mod for me(and for anyone else who would perhaps wish to use this mod).(I would prefer that the texts would be in english[no offense mean't to anyone])

Thank you in advance.

RedHawke made a mod like what you're asking a while back, here's the link: RedHawke's Ord Mandell Mod. (http://www.citlink.net/~redhawke/mods/RHORDMandellSetup.rar) You'll need WinRar to decompress the files. And a note of warning from the readme: Recommended Character level for planet is 14+, You will be in for some potentially tough, but really good fights. You have been warned!

Technically we cannot create new area designs, so RH's Ord Mantell mod has reused preexisting modules, which mostly worked.

DLC, the kind of mod you are asking for is one of the biggest mods you can take on. Many come around with ambitions but few actually get anything done. It just takes so long to do some of the things, not that it is overly-difficult it is just so time consuming. I could tell nightmare stories about the ORD Mandell placeables alone, not even including the NPC's. :eek:

Edit: I have been thinking of adding some content on to ORD Mandell but I'm not sure there are enough KotOR I players to make it worth while.

Mostly worked? I think not! It was sheer genious! :xp:

Also it is ORD Mandell not Mantell. ;)

@ DarthSaboteur, thanks! :D

Already have that mod I like it and it's good, but I just want more, and if it comes to that I might even actually try to mod it myself, but only time will show.

If you make it.. they will come :nod:

Don't think I wouldn't quit Oblivion for a few days to play ORD again.. I have a score to settle with those madalorians ;) hehehe...

I'd sure as shoot play it. I thought the ORD Mandell mod rocked, RedHawke. So nice to have a new place to go to in my favorite game. You should add new content. You'd have at least a download from me, anyway. :D

Thanks for the enthusiasm people. :)

If free-time and creativity permit this might happen, I just have to figure out what exact modules to add, and how I want to arrange things first. It is difficult to suspend disbelief when we have to use pre-existing modules to do things. But if I can give the illusion of travelling a great distance from the arid landing site to a more lush area I might be able to use some Dantooine modules, but I'll have to see if it feels ok. ;)

@ RH: why dont you make a Coruscant mod using Taris modules? im sure it's old hat for you :D
and BTW: check the SW Databanks on the official site, it's Ord Mantell

I always thought using sections of the leviathon would make a new area. It's one of those maps you just don't remember!

He knows. He made it Ord Mandell so it's not the same planet ;)

Oh, and I'm investigating making a small space station, but this is still in the viability-testing stage, so I might abandon it. At some point in the future I intend to release a Nar Shadaa mod for K1. At some point.

that would be cool. but how would you give it the seedy look Nar Shaddaa is famous for?

Some reskinning of the Taris Lower City ought to do that.

Hi everyone, I just joined this forum after many long hours enjoying the game and your many great mods (hats off to rehawke).

I'm playing KOTOR 1 on a mac (no jokes please) so I'm pretty much stuck forever in this game universe (no porting of KOTOR2 apparently...EVER!). Thanks to you guys, my blue Aayla Secura twi-lek can save Ord Mandell, solve Weebul's problems and visit the tomb of Exar Kun all while building new stuff with her spiffy new construction bench. Part of me doesn't want to find the Star Forge (again) and just cruise around the galaxy forever... or at least until the Jedi Exile comes to my mac...

I'm not a techy, but I did look into working on some of the mod tools but unfortunately that would mean using them on my pc at work and testing it on my mac at home. Until I become Super-Modder, may I suggest the following ideas/quests:

1 - Return of the Genoharadan - similar to the original, ie - people to kill on various planets

2 - Taris revisited - How about landing on Taris using the map for Davik's estate and then cruise around the lower and under city "doing stuff" (the upper city would be destroyed)? Possibilities could include rescuing people (Weebul's brother?), solving disputes, or just general fighting for fighting's sake.

3 - Khaashyyk - I really like this planet, shame there's no reason to ever return to it. How about a Trandoshan invasion in the shadowlands? Goddamn wookies can never take care of themselves it seems.

4 - Assasinate a Selkath judge - I think many people would like this if given the chance. You'd have to lead (or follow?) one of the judges somewhere where you can assasinate him/her/it safely and in secrecy (I know there are Metal Gear haters, but frankly I think the "stealth" skill is underused in quests)

In a perfect world, I'd like the game to not end after the star forge, but I think I've may have gone too far. Basically, to you modders, know that there are people out there that love you and your devotion to giving us new and exciting things to this already wonderful game. Also know that there are mac players' feelings to consider! Leaving KOTOR behind to play Jedi Academy is ok but....... :)

Until then, howdy again to you all and you can find me reading this forum, checking out pcgamemods every hour on the hour or signing the many online petitions to bring KOTOR 2 to the mac.

cya

Some interesting ideas there, and mostly very feasible, but you might like to post them in their own thread :)

A we bit off topic but where can I buy K2. I would totally play your mod RH.

Check your local gamestop, thats where I got mine.

Also, once I get the hang of editing modules and creating new characters, I'd like to redo parts of Manaan and piece together a Mon Calamari planet, that goals a long way off, but I believe it possible, I'm not so sure about redrawing models to be mon calamari though, there are already quarren. My idea is copyrighted btw.

I want to buy it at a cheaper place though (We don't have gamestop). If I knew how to make a quest where you could have a planet devoted to killing the fish guys on maanan. I know there is a mod where you can kill them already but I wanna add killing of the wookies too (they seemed weak, wookies were way under powered).

Well guys, thanks for the feedback, if I do proceed on this it won't be for a little while as I have to finish Morrowind, start and finish Oblivion, and at least try out EaW and X3.

But don't fret, I already have an idea of what I want to do, as I already have it written down from parts of my original ORD Mandell plans. :)

ORD Mandell is a mod for KotOR I. ;)

3 - Khaashyyk - I really like this planet, shame there's no reason to ever return to it. How about a Trandoshan invasion in the shadowlands? Goddamn wookies can never take care of themselves it seems.


I know the dialogue is in Polish, but "Project Yavin 4th" (http://pcgamemods.com/mod/10127.html) is worth trying. The Motor Squad did a really good job using Kashyyk as the moon of the big red marble. If for no other reason, their work can serve as a model of what is possible with some creative lateral thinking about mods.

The language barrier does require your character be really tough. It also makes it difficult to figure out the egress, or to discover the mod's full breadth, so save your game before entering. At any rate, it's worth the look-see as an example of really creative world making. The Trandoshans are there, too!

Also it is ORD Mandell not Mantell. ;)There is a planet named Ord Mantell, so it's easy to confuse. I originally thought that you were just spelling it wrong.

By the way... on ORD Mandell, the ship crew fight and the Mandalorian thieves fight took freaking forever. Longest fights of my life.

And people said that KotOR I was so easy! :xp: -RH

ANOTHER great challenge.. and a personal vendetta that reminds me of (damn lizards).. heheh is RedHawke's Weebul & Utiinii's Imporium (http://www.citlink.net/~redhawke/mods.html) mod...

Think the Mandalorians were tough? Try a miffed off Trandoshan that doesn't like your stink :devsmoke: ...Then try a mob of them .. :eek:

It's not exactly a new planet such as the thread's topic had asked.. but it IS 2 new areas, a sidequest, kewl new loot and several fight-for-your-life battles...

One of my personal favs :D

Boy don't we know it. Redhawke's Ord Mandell & Weebul & Utiinii's Imporium mods were an inspiration for me. When I made the Tomb of Jesset Dal'Kest mod. I'm still not certain to this day if the challenge rating of this mod quite compares to Redhawke's mods.

Wow.. nostalgia, until remembering the "good ole days" you never quite realize just how many new area mods there actually are :D

There's also deathdisco's Exar Kun's Tomb:

I was wondreing if someone could give Taris a moon that contained survivours of the bombing using parts from the leviathan, taris, mannan and characters like Zelka with a healing faclity and the outcasts and a abandoned sith military base.

That might be interesting. Just as a note Taris itself is still there and later was rebuilt somewhat. Take a look -> http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Taris

If I knew how to mod, I would deffinitely spend time on making a planet mod over the summer...

Sounds like TONS of work, and it would be most deffintely a summer project... I figure alot of mods may come out during this time too?
