View Full Version : [WIP][K1]Revans Choice - mod

Edit: Due to my other thread disappearing into the void, I decided to make another one. Most of you know I started a huge mod a few months ago, when I had little modding experience. So I put it on hold for a few weeks. Since then, I've help restore, 2 fairly big cut modules, learnt how to place NPC's, add VO's to conversations, add certain items to peoples inventories, and much more.

Anyways, onto the Mod content. So far, I have planned everything for the mod, I know what I'll be doing throughout it.

Mod Content:

-New recruitable NPC's
-New game long quests
-A Droid Army threatens to invade Tatooine
-Added characters
-VO's for all added characters and new party members
-Revan's epic tales of the Mandalorian Wars.

Storyline:

The Jedi Order have reprogrammed Revan's memory, making him a Jedi on the Republics side. He has taken up the identity of Reign, a Jedi Guardian in Bastila's party. An attack on the Endar Spire and on the Jedi party itself, has left Reign weakened.

Fortunately the PC shows up just in time to help Reign through a pretty big party of Sith. They finally get down to the planets surface of Taris, but the PC is hurt badly. Reign uses the Force to keep the PC alive enough to get him/her bandaged and healed.

From that moment on, Reign and the PC share a Force bond, along with Bastila. When Reign starts having dreams, he remembers the last part of his memory of being Revan. Revan's memory was never truly erased. Reign has been waiting for the right time to go back and find the Star Forge. And he has now decided to use the PC and Bastila to somehow get back to it.

New Characters:

Reign - A Jedi who was once and still is Darth Revan. He does not want to reveal he still remembers being Revan, after the Jedi Council tried to erase his memory.

Almerius - A Jedi Exile, a friend of Revan's from the Mandalorian Wars. He has been in Exile ever since the final battle at Malachor V. Almerius can provide a lot of wisdom and support. He also knows Reign's true identity. But keeps it from the party.

NPC's Throughout the Galaxy - Some important NPC's will be added that will give you side quests. The biggest of which is a siege on a new Droid Armies space station, which threatens to invade Tatooine. The PC and party must go into space and destroy the Droid Army by disabling the space stations control over the Droids.

Who is leading this new Droid Army? Is it a Sith? Or someone from the Republic...

New Items:

This mod will include a lot of new items, including:

-Weapons
-Saber hilts
-Jedi Robes (Click here for Almerius's Robe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GIUDuszft4))
-Clothes
-Quest datapads
-Revan's Lightsaber
-Revan's Jedi General Robes

Screenshots:

- Carth's Warning (http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h305/RosieJA/carth.jpg)
- The PC meets Reign (http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h305/RosieJA/reign-1.jpg)
- The Dark Jedi attack (http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h305/RosieJA/reign_2.jpg)

Public Releases:

- Endar Spire - Beta (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=186273)

Big thanks to DarthDingDong for making me the hilts and robes and to the Holowan Community for their great help, support and advice.

good idea, however, i have one question,
If you are a female, Carth will fall in love with you as well as Revan, will they fight each other at the temple for the main character?

looks interesting, do we're, uh, still the main character, but we're like the secondary character in the story?

I just realised while watching you vids that I never made an inventort icon for that Almerius robe!

I'll make one and send i tto you through msn later :D

That robe looks almost exactly as a Revan Robe that I designed for a mod that I haven't announced; Now that I have GIMP, I guess I'll make mine more refined than that.

Your mod sounds very cool, though. :thumbsup:

(Original Post Has Been Edited)

There will be a romance plot between Revan and the PC. Reign will fall in love with you, but if you choose the Light Side, he tells you that he wants you to be with Carth instead of him.

Sounds great but the darkside ending is pretty lame i dont want to play the whole story geting powerful just for reign/revan to kill me.

Light Side:

You confront Bastila as normal, she takes off, you head to the Star Forge. Reign follows you the whole way through it, until you hit the fight with Malak. Reign will tell you he wants to face Malak alone, thus when you enter the Module, you will become Reign, and face off with Malak.

Dark Side:

Reign wont let you take over Sith Lord, as he wants to take his rightful place as Darth Revan. You fight him, kill him and proceed to the Star Forge as normal.

looks interesting, do we're, uh, still the main character, but we're like the secondary character in the story?

You're still the main character, but throughout the game, you will become Reign in new Modules, etc.

DarthJebus05, I went through and pruned the posts that were, well now off topic as you deleted your posts. ;)

Also I want to say this project sounds quite interesting.

Wait you become Reign? Why would you want to do that? If your going to have Revan be a secondary character you could at least have your PC face against the antagonist. This mod now just seems so unfinished now. It would make more sense if Revan gets hurt or something and asks you to face against Malak. Or something.

Also people mainly train their PC and not their party members. So if Reign is going to face against Malak as a lvl 10 and your PC at level 20 I think people would dread having to do it

;) Thanks for the post merge. I've always had a good imagination, just never the energy to make those ideas happen :lol: But now that I'm well into this mod, I don't see me pulling out of it.

Or Reign will stay and make sure Bastila isn't disturbed by any enemies?

Another idea would be that in the final battle with malak lets say his third in command would fight along side him so that bolth you and reign could fight and it wouldnt be terribly easy.

This mod is progressing faster than I anticipated. In the past few days I've almost completed the Droid Space Station, Taris's NPC's and conversations, a new saber (thanks DDD).

Got some new screenshots too:

-Some history of the PC revealed (http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h305/RosieJA/reign5.jpg)

Looks good although you might want to replace the texture on the "windows" to a space type back ground because atm it looks like you are on manaan.

Ive been speaking with Jebus and have managed to convince him to replace more party members. Jebus might include more information once he is finished scripting Taris and Dantoonie. Anyway from what he has told me Jebus is only planning on keeping Carth, Bastila, Hk-47 and T3-M4.

Considering three days ago you only had the first module you're doing really well!

Keep it up! :)

Vista isn't as bad as people make out...

My laptop is Vista and it runs games like KotOR and JA etc just fine...

TSL is the only one it has a problem with, and even then only occasionally.

It also works really well with Modding Tools.

Just download all the updates etc and you'll be fine.

:)

Good thing I offered to keep your backup files too eh?

Alright, since Photobucket is down, I wont be able to post any screenshots until tomorrow morning.

I've been doing a lot of solo work, and gotten pretty far into the mod. Current progress so far:

-I've almost finished editing and putting in new dialog on Taris
-Added a few NPC's which will reveal start some new side quests
-Complete VO's for Reign and the NPC's
-Finished adding the rest of the battle droids on the Battle Droid Space Station
-Complete dialog for the Space Station

Two more things:

1. How do I find the textures for the Manaan Sith base?

2. After I finished Taris completely, I'll be moving onto Dantooine. Which I think will be the hardest part of the mod.

Its a pain the *ss to get things uploaded.

It was really annoying :firemad:

I could only upload one picturea a time... and it was wonky still then.

Though that was yesterday for me. Perhaps they fixed it already.

To find the textures for manaan, find the Sith base module name (sorry I can't remember the name, and I don't have KOTOR anymore). Go to the Models section, take the module name and look for it in the models folder. Once you have found it, double click the models into a new folder or something(DOUBLE CLICK THEM, NO EXTRACTION!)

After which browse your folder, and then you should find your skybox! :D

There's probably an easier way to do this, but yeah I don't any. :xp:

I'll edit this post later tonight with screenshots, though I've an update:

Obviously I can't get this mod finished by the 7th of June, so what I'm going to do is release the mod in parts.

Part One: Endar Spire, Taris and Dantooine (probably the biggest part of the mod)
Part Two: Tatooine (includes droid space station), Kashyyyk and Korriban
Part Three: Leviathan, Manaan, Unknown Planet and Star Forge

Bonus Part: Gameplay after the end of the game

I've totally revamped Taris again, Sith soldiers will attack you if Reign is in your party. You will meet a lot of NPC's that are a vital part of the plot, and will give information about your PC's history. The best part about that? You get to choose your own. And it affects everything around you.

Example:

On Taris, say you accidentally injured a Jedi once, that Jedi will then appear on Dantooine or somewhere in the Galaxy. If you don't choose that option, the Jedi wont be spawned.

Hmmmm... looking great! I can't wait to try it.

One criticism is you might want to change the Sith Apprentices in your first post so they are a bit more diverse.

Just an update on the release of the mod:

The short teaser for part 1 has been sent into kotorfiles due to a cold delaying the last of the voice recordings. The trailer will be up 11th June approx. and the mod release around the 15th.

Looking really good.

Did you say that the first part will be available ~the 15th?

I want to play it, but I think I'll wait until all three parts are out.

Last update on part 1:

In beta testing now, sent the mod off to Marius Fett, and a few other people I can trust. I am still waiting on some female voice recordings, though if the nice girl whos doing them for me hasn't replied to my emails.

:EDIT: Ender is right, the mod will be done when it's done. But not to worry, it will be soon :)

(I feel like TimFX changing the release dates :lol:)

That's why you don't see many modders around here that use release dates. It's almost impossible to stick to them.

:wid: is the norm. ;)

Jebus has been banned and it looks permanent, so I don't think the mod is still in production.
