Recruit Ferc Kast

I've started my first recruit mod...But, I've got the utc and appearance in hand. I already know one character that I'm ready to replace in either game. So, the choice is yours. More information will be coming as I progress. As I need other modders, I will update here.

To do: Create appearance line - 100% Done Make .UTCs - 100% Done Skin Head & Make DS Transitions - 100% Done Place in an in-game module - 100% Done Make scripts to recruit - 100% Done Create pre-recruitment dialog - 53% Done Create normal dialog - 0% Done Look for any bugs - 5% Done Set up with TSLPatcher to ensure compatibility with other mods - 0% Done

Total Percent Completed: 62.00%

Here is screens of him in-game:

TSL. Mainly because I don't have K1 installed. :lol:

I'm waiting on dialog until the poll is over. If anyone could make Bandon's face with an auburn goatee(or whatever you call his type of facial hair) and green eyes for me, I would appreciate it very much. (PM your try at it ASAP.) There is no need for voice acting as of yet. Although, I'll probably have beta dialog by next Friday for voice actors to record. Again, I'll have more details as they come.

My focus (until the poll is over) is to look for any bugs in his appearance line so far. Also, I'll be preparing the scripts to make him a party member. I'll also be creating more custom robes for him.

K1 maybe replacing T3

G0-T0!!! There is no other way that you cannot replace GOTO he is useless so replace him I don't know why they even made him a party character.

surprise me... I dont really care but even then this mod looks promising

Good luck creating a CNPC for TSL that doesn't involve it speaking all of the character replaced's lines.

K1. Maybe replacing Mission? Then it'd be compatible with Kay and the recruit i'm in the middle of! :D

Maker him for both, so nobody misses out :XP:.

K1: Juhani because you dont have to recruit her.
TSL: G0-T0 definately he had no point to the game and obsidion made a HUGE mistake there.

Everything is set up for his recruit (give or take the scripts that make him a party member.) I decided to go with only TSL; Though, I may go back eventually to implement him into K1.

Also, I have the dialog leading up to his recruitment ready; So, I am now looking for male voice-actors. If you're interested, contact me for the dialog.

01-31-2008, 08:27 PM
why not do both so not matter which game people use they can still use him!!

Ferc Kast

The thing is that it would take double the time, effort and work. Frankly, I don't have enough time to try to make it for both games at the moment. However, I do plan on making him for it for K1, just not as soon.

02-09-2008, 08:21 PM
I was just about to request that you implement him in TSL.

TSL is a good idea since mainly they have a lot more recruitment mods for Kotor 1 and not as many for TSL.But what party member are you going to overwrite and how are you going to meet them?

Ferc Kast
02-09-2008, 09:01 PM
I have an idea of where you will meet him...; Anyway, I was thinking Visas, G0-T0, T3-M4 or possibly Atton for the TSL release. The two I would probably end up debating over to replace are T3-M4 or G0-T0.

You're gonna have an elaborate side-quest or so I hope...I'll post another screen soon.

02-09-2008, 09:05 PM
Please get rid of G0-T0. I like T3-M4 for his hologram messeges of Bastila or Carth,

I agree, never liked G0-T0. This guy would be waay better.

I will make the TSL version first per popular vote. (I will make a K1 version...eventually.) I am starting on dialog now since I am almost done texturing his head (still need to re-adjust the darkside transitions), portraits, clothes, etc...So, I will need voice actors ASAP.

Here are some more screens to keep you occupied until my next update:

(Click on screens to see a bigger version)

I will make it so that you, the player, decide which NPC to replace during the dialog to recruit him. I have a general backstory planned out for him...I hope that it will be enjoyable when released.

Update: The textures are done, the appearance line is done, the UTC is done...All that remains is dialog and scripting.

In the near future, I will need a male voice actor. I would prefer them to volunteer sooner than later. In the meantime, enjoy the following two screens from the final DS transitions:

Side Note: I'd like to thank DDD for the saber hilt he created for me per request. (What a lifesaver you are, DDD!! :D)

(If you want to be the voice-actor, you can record the following line for auditioning to do voice-overs: "I guess that I'll just be--")

I say replace GoTo because you need t3 to even use the ebon hawk

03-29-2008, 05:59 PM
Yeah i say G0-T0 too he kinda sucks and is useless

BtW have you found eny actors yet..?

Ferc Kast

That's the general idea, Darth Riddick & memarik. I'm putting finishing touches on the pre-recruitment dialog. As I've been working on this, I came across 1 minor bug so far. So, here's my question to fix the bug: how I make it so that the game wouldn't try to play G0-T0's cutscenes on the Ebon Hawk after I have recruited him?

More Screenies:
LS party selection screen (http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g126/jcoolZombie/Recruit%20Ferc%20Kast/K2_00321.png)
DS transition 1 party selection screen (http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g126/jcoolZombie/Recruit%20Ferc%20Kast/K2_00322.png)
DS transition 2 party selection screen (http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g126/jcoolZombie/Recruit%20Ferc%20Kast/K2_00323.png)

(Note: I leveled him up after he became a party member; He starts as a level 12 Jedi Guardian)

Tell me, where did you find that robe skin in the texturepacks?

Tell me, where did you find that robe skin in the texturepacks?

I custom-made the two robe skins, based on the K1 style of robe. If you look at K1_PFBI01.tpc in swpc_tex_tpb.erf or swpc_tex_tpa.erf, you'll see that the K1 robe style is present in the unmodded version of TSL. Also, see Shem's post here (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/;76528x#1395883). (So, I'm not porting...if that's what you're thinking, DI.)

I'm actually hoping you could release those robes for both games as they are way better than the sith robes in K1, i wouldn't mind using those in TSL either.
