This... Is... AWESOME! :D

It's totally worth replaying TSL for. And that's not me bragging, that's a fact.
This is so nice.. I think.. *tears dropping from my eyes*

What modules did you use for the planet? I've never seen these modules before.

An Update: I've removed the arriving and leaving videos, the quality is embarasing and im going to keep trying on the "other" video to try and get it up to somewhat of a high standard. Im also toying with the idea of voice overs but the DLG files haven't been written yet (or is it wrote?) but if anyone is up for voice acting then they can post on here, the character is male and with very little to say, i will just use alien sounds for any others. Im still working on the cutscene and i hope to finish that today.

Thanks for reading, even if you didn't want to :D

Another update, i've taken a better look into the reskinning stage because i stated that i would be reskinning and all that i had done untill now was recolouring. I have some screenshots aswell:

You can compair them with the other screenshots to see what has changed.

EDIT:
Also the cutscene is finished, and so is the video but i cannot test that because my computer is terrible. I may ask someone to test that however, MZ has been asking so he'll be first on the list ;)

Updates!
Well i have finished the Cutscene and the MZ has been a life saver and offered to do the videos, and after seeing the completed "Arriving" video i can't wait for the others, Exellent work MZ ;) Also i am now at the stage of writing dialog files for the story. A small problem i have is that i want to have this introduced into the game rather than just there on the galaxy map. However you may need to play TSL through again to actually get the options to go to this planet. I am working on ways around this though.

Update:D
Update is that i have finished the storyline intoduction (not telling you what it is) and i have also done a bit more reskinning, screenshots aren't really nessesary because the changes are minor... I have cut the modules down and finished their minimaps, however the droid module maps don't exist so those will have to be blank unless i can sort summat out.

Well thats all now :D

Thanks Wolf ;)
Okay, an update... I have fixed the area transitions, so that if you go from one module to another and back again you don't end up at the start again. And i have done some more reskinning, ill get some screenshots later. I have added a tweakcolor to all the doors in the modules and i am going to be making some placeables soon :D

A sad update i am afraid.. :(
I am going on holiday for about a month to somewhere in france, im not sure about getting an internet connection there, i think i might from time to time unless i can miraculously find a wireless network. Seen as i am going to be in france, i can't drag the desktop with me for some 800 miles... :lol: And so modding for me is going to have to stop. However, i am taking my laptop, which cannot run kotor but does have 3ds max, in which i can make a construction of the modules and reskin them from there. Other than that i can't test anything else, i'll make a few weapons and anything else to pass the looong time i am going for.

Well, bye bye then! See you all in a month or so!

Brief update, My Laptop crashed in France and i've had to reformat the HDD so i've lost all the files, etc. on the computer.

This project is cancelled until further notice.

Oh the horror. I feel for you glovemaster, and am truly disappointed. Your mod was looking quite unique and excellent. If there can be a recovery of the mod, terrific. Otherwise, I just hope you keep modding KotOR :)
