I apologize if this has been asked, but I'm brand new here & find the vast selection of mods somewhat bewildering. My question is...is there any mods for either KOTOR available now that completely, or to a large degree, change the storyline of the game?? More or less what I'm seeking is an expansion pack type thing.

I have noticed there appears to be a couple in production, like "The Darkness Within", but haven't found any that are in current use. I have played both games twice, using several content mods, such as different lightsabers, and am not yet ready to shelve the games. However, it takes alot of excitement out of them when you already pretty much know what the results of any decision are going to be.

I remember in the original Half-Life era there were literally dozens of these type mods available that added completely new rooms & storys to the game, some even added about as much to the game as what was initially in the box. It greatly extended the enjoyment of Half-Life.

Anything like that available for KOTOR?? Thanks.

Like I said...I'm new to this. I'm sure if it's in the wrong section, a Mod will move it to the right one for me.

Moving to Holowan Labs... the Taris Upper City Emporium is strictly for modders to post release threads for their mods and to get feedback on them.

Just an FYI. ;)

There is a mod called Reign Of The Sith by Gsccc that kind of made an 'expansion' after the end game for KotOR I. (Regrettably I haven't played it myself)

I have a planet mod I did called ORD Mandell, there is a Yavin IV Mod by Hulas (In Polish), and there are a handful of mods that add areas to the game, I have a Weebull & Utiinii's Emporium, Darkkender made a Tomb Mod, and I know there are some others, though I forget their names. But these mods are few and far between, as we do not have any official support to mod these games and can't currently create 'new' areas. The only 'new' content that can be added is re-using pre-existing game areas, and to do these requires a lot of work.

You can find the mods I mentioned at PCGameMods.com or mine you can get from my website (Link is in my sig). :D

Thanks Red. That was pretty much exactly the answrs I was seeking. The ROTS sounds interesting & I have yet been in these parts long enough to find it, so I'll go looking.

I also just found the site that has the guys working to restore all the lost content to KOTOR II, which would be nice.

Pity the game isn't as easily modded as Half-Life was. I remember adding mods to it that were just about as exciting & lengthy as the original game was. In my opinion, designing a game like that makes it much more marketable, since it keeps it in the lime-light much longer.

Hopefully though, we'll see a KOTOR III some day.
