Hi

I was just wondering has anyone done a mod or doing a mod that actually shows the corruption of the darkside when you meet Bastila on that Rakatan Temple Summit.

Weelll....I did that once, sort of. I was fooling around in photoshop awhile ago and made my own dark side Bastila. She has Sith eyes, darker lips, and paler skin. The only problem is I don't know enough about modding to make it so she only appears dark side at that part in the game.

Basically if you used the texture I made Bastila would look like a Sith Lord from the start of the game.

If your interested in using it though I'd be happy to send it to you.

I made one, but its rather over the top (black hair, inverted eyes, pale skin, etc.) and I made it compatible with only my current 2da files, so I'd rather not go through the hassle of making it compatible with everything else (I'm no good with stoffe's 2da patcher tool) but if you'd like to know Kavar, the way to make her look evil only at the temple and the starforge, is you rename your texture to the default and add an 'e' (for evil, or you can rename it whatever you want so long as you can remember it), then you'd open up a default heads.2da (or appearance.2da, can't remember which <.<) file (or one you are currently using like I did) and find Bastila's appearance row, then under "headtexve" (or something close to that) put in the name of your new texture, save, copy n paste into override and voila, whenever you see bastila with 25 or more ds points she will use that texture.

Have Fun ;)

Thanks for the advice The_Maker. I've been wanting to do this for my own personal mod use for awhile but was't sure where to start. I'll try your explination and see if I can't make a working mod out of it. ^_^

Thanks for the replys but sadly no modder I was just wondering but if you are able to do that it would be great.

Well you're in luck - After reading this thread DarthSaboteur was nice enough to use my DS Bastila texture and make a real working mod out of it. Just private message me your e-mail address and I'll send it to you.

That's interesting that this was brought up since I did do a mod like that myself. :)

Just out of curiosity whats your mod called shem that changes it and is it compatable with mods that change her apperance like the Bastila's Revelation Robes mod

Nice work though.Really? I like yours. I do like my eyes better, but I like what you did with the lips.


Just out of curiosity whats your mod called shem that changes it and is it compatable with mods that change her apperance like the Bastila's Revelation Robes modI've never released it. I did it for my personal use. I did what was mentioned in the thread, I changed the heads.2da file to give Bastila dark side transitions, and reskinned her head to give her Sith eyes and a more pale skin tone.

Hmm shame you did'nt release it with the reskin pack that you did.

Hmm shame you did'nt release it with the reskin pack that you did.I made this well after I did my most recent skin pack and during a time PCGM hasn't been quite the same.

Any Chance that you are going to release it in a future mod?

Damicles, what you can do it´s download the sith armada mod (you´ll find it in pcgamemods). Bastilla will be dark side corrupted in a more dark way (tatoo all over her face). But as she will be allways dark sided, you can install it once you have beaten the Leviathan. Otherwise I believe there are no mods for what you ask.

Thanks for the suggestion had a look at the sith armada mod but the darkside corruption is a bit overkill on her.

Yeah, I agree there. If you were to have the Sith Armada as a DS transition it'd only be perfect as the final one; since it's as you put it, overkill.

Not if you play from the beginning as DS with the characters changed woth the KSE.

As you may have noticed that I said it's possible for me to release my Bastila dark side transition mod publicly. I said that because I haven't checked out all of the kinks. I did tonight and I'm not going to after all.

The reason is because of how the game is set up in the Star Forge. Bastila's good and evil is at 50 in the Star Forge. That means he's neutral, not light or dark, so she'll look normal.

Now it would seem like it would be a simple .utc file change, but there's a problem. Bastila uses the same tag on the Deck 1 module as she does on the Deck 3 module (where you confront her and fight her) on the Star Forge. As some of you know, when you edit a .utc tag that has the same name in more than one module, one of them will get screwed up. I would have to know how to script, and I don't, so it's really not realistically worth it from my point of view. :(

I am considering just having it that her eyes turn Sith, and dump the pale skin. Then you can claim it as an Anakin Skywalker from ROTS where his eyes turned back and forth from normal to Sith colored. But that depends on the demand for it. If enough people want it like that, then I'll consider it.
