Another "has anyone done this?" topic:

A mod that creates a post-destruction Taris using only the undercity and sewers, and replaces the original Taris in the galaxy map.

Since only the surface was destroyed, the undercity should still be livable. I can easily create the new areas, but I have no idea how to script the galaxy map.

This sounds like a very good idea.

The quest that takes you there could be a rescue mission to see if any of the people you helped when you where there before are still alive.

This way it would work for both LS players as well as DS players.

Any survivors could be dropped of on Manaan. Due to the Kolto trade there.

How to put it on the galaxymap is explained in the tutorials sections. It's not that difficult. It's a great idea. It has already been hinted a lot of the Undercity "civilians" survived the bombing, together with a marginal portion of Lower City civilians. You could have a civil war between certain factions (Outcasts, remaining swoop gang members, others).

Hmmm, perhaps som Lower City Sith patrols survived as well?

Maybe a dark jedi is in charge of them?

Maybe you could make the outcasts Promised Land?

All kind of possibilities!

You've all just convinced me to go ahead with this regardless of whether it's been done before. I can get around having to learn how to script the galaxy map by triggering the mod from one of the other planets. This will also solve cutscene movie issues (there aren't any for Taris) and save me from having to devise a landing area.

I'll gladly help with any advice and encoragements i can.

Unfortunatly, this does not include the tech side of things.

Maybe if you managed to edit the clips correctly you could use Manaan as a post bombing Taris, as long as you cut the clip before you can see the city.

Thanks! If you want, you (or anyone else who wants to) can play around with this blank module:

Edit: Beta release can be found in the Taris Upper City Emporium.

The doors still lead back to the main game, and I've removed everything else except the placeables. I plan to connect the current sewer door with the new sewer levels, and the elevator door with a warp-back-to-the-trigger-planet script. My plan is to use this area, the two sewer areas and a modified tomb area from Koriban. I think that's about all I can take on.

Maybe if you managed to edit the clips correctly you could use Manaan as a post bombing Taris, as long as you cut the clip before you can see the city.

If I can make this work, I'll post a .wmv for comments.

ps. If you need a blank module for your other project, let me know. I'll be happy to make one.

Great! Like Danyael27, I'd gladly help with whatever I can.

I'll keep your offer in mind.

Your project looks very interesting so far.

Hmmm, just had a thought.

What if one of the medium sized rooms in your mod is a century old armory from the Taris Civil War. This adds potential for finding new and original items.

......Taris Civil War.

A great idea to employ in the tomb area!

Great! Like Danyael27, I'd gladly help with whatever I can.

Thanks!

I have collected several dialogs to use here and there, and will start adding "survivors" to the undercity. So far, I'm thinking Janice, one of the Hutts, the doctor, one of the merchants, and, of course, Deadeye. I'm also pretty sure the rancor from the original plot must have had a nest somewhere...........If there are any other suggestions for survivors, there's plenty of room! I'll attempt to get a fully-functioning version of this area ready by the end this weekend.

I have completed the Beta Release and posted it in the Emporium.
