Yeah, I don't think theres been another mod like this, so I'm gonna take a crack at it. This one is gonna include some crazy scripting halp, so I'm gonna need a lot of help. Right now, theres gonna be 4 utcs. Heres my plan:
Start the Recruit [X]
Follow Darth333's Tut on making a character be recruited. []
Make Dialog []
Add Extra Stuff []
Release []
Make patches for bugs and stuff []
Wait for SS to make Cape and Belt for TSL []
Ask for use of mod in mine. []
Release again []
Check this page for Progress Reports :)

EDIT: There is one thing I need help with. I need someone to make a custom saber hilt for this recruit. The details I will send to you over PM, but I do want a Long Saber.

Sounds awesome!

Would this be a TSL mod considering you technically are Revan in KOTOR?

hmm this wouldn't make sense at all. one thing you don't have to worry about is people hounding you for voice overs since even in the cutscene where he talks to carth near the end of KOTOR1 he doesn't have a voice XD i notice little things like that.

No, this is a KOTOR1 mod [/sarcasm]
...
Yeah...
[/spam] :xp:
Anyways, I'm almost done with one of the utcs. By the end of the day, all the utcs will be done.

EDIT: Ok, I'm trying to edit the appearance.2da file so that Revan's head and body are locked, but the tutorial made by Redhawk says to find the Value and bitflag(?) columns, but I can't find them. Is there another way to do it?

NOBODY will download this mod unless............................................ you make some special force powers for Revan :xp:.
You can ask Stoffe for some FP he has integrated in the CSA version of Revan...
But SERIOUSLY!!! A big Darth with no special Force Powers??? And you can ask Revan- if enough influence (if that's possible)- to learn you those cool force powers...
And to make the game have sense, Revan should be recruited on Korriban ONLY if Korriban is the last planet Exile visits- well actually not last, cauze you should go to finish business on Dxun (Freedon Nadds tomb) and Onderon (the Civil War). But, there might be some problems. You know, you really need to make the rest of the party- especially Kreia- interact with Revan in the Ebon Hawk...
If I were Atton and if I was aboard of a ship with Revan, I would ask him a question every minute...
And then again, you should make the mod compatible with TSLRP, and you should do the mod, so the alter endings in TSLRP would match the fact that Revan is a party member and at Malachor...
Very hard project...

Yes, but I do not think this will be compatible with the TSLRP for the sole reason that its replacing an NPC in your party. The only way for it to be TSLRP compatible would be to make Revan a puppet of someone (Kreia would make the most sense)
As for the force power, I plan to put in some kind of force power in on a later release date (Like in a patch) for Revan. And I do plan to have the party speak with Revan every once in a while...

Lets see the places where I'm called TriggerGod and where I'm called BIOShazard:
Trigger: LucasArts, Infinite Empire, Canyon Workshops, Deadly Stream
BIOS: Team Gizka, Obsidian, LucasArts(Before the name change),

he could be a puppet of HK-47 lol. Some interesting dialogue could occur there.

Normally, I'd tell you this whenever at Canyon Workshops, but....


You might want to consider Swapping Krea for Reven, and Make Krea a party Puppet for him. Which you can kill. Because we all hate krea.

Use the last column, all the way to the right (equipslotslocked) with a value of 3.

If we're talking about people we hate, he should replace G0-T0 :P

On-Topic: I noticed you're making custom dialog too. Will it be VO'd? Because if it is, you'd need a male and female VO because @ the beginning of the game, you can choose whether or not to make Revan male/female...

Wedge Suron

I'm keeping an eye on this.

If you replace someone like Goto, you have to allow the dialog above Nar-Shaddaa to stay. Any physical replacements for Kreia 5 times out of ten will be removed in the battle with Sion. Your best bet for Kreia would be on Telos maybe. Remove Kreia and put Revan in her place then.

TriggerGod
07-01-2008, 03:14 PM
I am not replacing Kreia, as she is too integrated into the plot. I'm not experienced enough to replace her :xp:
Anyways, thx Zero, and I can continue the mod. The nature of the mod will be to ellimenate the dialog Mira/Hanharr says about GOTO (and anyone else, particularly HK) and making a script that'll make Korriban the second planet you visit. Maybe third...

Unless I can get someone to do it for me at another site, then, under those circumstances, yes.

You may wish to give Revan a Sith-Assasin voice over.

The files are already in-game.

TriggerGod
07-01-2008, 08:39 PM
Hmm... yeah. I remember what they sound like, so it might work. (I know Nihilus uses it, and DAP: Holowan Consortium has an assassin on Dantooine using that soundset.)

Exile007
07-01-2008, 09:15 PM
Nihilus has his own set of VO's. The Sith Assasins have a seperate one.

TriggerGod
07-01-2008, 10:50 PM
O. I thought they sounded similar :)
Anyways, I'm trying to decompile some scripts I made so I can double check my work. I set the file to open the .ncs as DeNCS, but it said it couldn't find the nwnnsscomp.exe, but it was where I specified it, so I couldn't open DeNCS. So I set the opener as nwnnsscomp but less then a second after I execute the operation, it closes out. What is the problem?

ohhhhhhhhhh, i have a idea, if possible, once done w/ this, you should make a recrutable male/ female exile for KotOR 1 and you could chose the gender by adding extra dioloug on the Endar Spire

That wouldn't work, as the Exile was wandering, and as I don't have K1, That essentially stops production there :)

PROGRESS REPORT:
Thanks to Ferc's new recruit script, I've decided to continue work. I have created dialog. You fight Revan with the talk - fight - talk sequence, and from there, you go on, and you recruit Revan, replacing a certain Astromech Droid.
And, just today, Marius Fett was asked to make a model of a Saber Hilt for me. He should be working on it.

If Marius is doing the saber, it'll be good... Can't wait for pics!

Be patient, Padawan.
And, I forgot to add something.
Ferc did a little part for the mod, not a generic thing like the script. He made a special portrait. Thx, again, Ferc ^_^

Ah, OK. You had me riled up for a minute there. Anyway, my Revan's flowing cape should go nicely with this. :)

If replacing G0T0, you will have to remove that cutscene on malachor and any other cutscenes involving G0T0...

TriggerGod

Well, I prolonged this mod as I had quite a bit on my plate, but I just want to let people know that I am still working on this mod
Here is what I've done so far:
Made the party utc for Revan.
Set up the scripts
Set up the dialog in which you meet Revan (which will be seperate from the Main Dialog, which I have not started yet)
Set up the Appearance.2da so that the Revan line has the body and mask areas locked off (I put 3, which is correct... right?)

What I need help with on:
So I use n_darthrevan for males and n_darthrevan002 for females? :confused:

How do I make a party member progress with you? (ie. if you have high influence, hes the same as you, but if you have low influence, you he goes the opposite way)

How do I make Revan disappear from the tomb (and into the Hawk later?)

So, I assume since Revan is replacing T3, The effects will happen immediately? (T3 is no longer on the Hawk)

I plan on making dialog during Nar Shaddaa if Revan has already been recruited (what I mean: The dialog Atton speaks after the Droid warehouse, I need a script that checks if Revan is a party member.)

And, one more spoiler involved one:
I want to spawn Revan on the Ravager. I want a cutscene to play when you open the door to the Bridge, that has Revan fighting Nihilus

(I also wanna remind Marius that hes making the saber.. >_>

:xp:)

Thx for the update Trigger, I really felt bad when I started thinking this is dead :(
Thank you again :D

I've not been able to model for a while, since my mouse broke AGAIN.

Since I can't model or texture using the pad on my laptop, i'll have to wait for my new mouse to arrive.

Which now that I think on it, should be today. ;)

I feel your pain. I used to have a wireless Logitech mouse. After 2-3 years of faithful service, it starts to freeze up randomly. So, I got this pimping new wired [Logitech] mouse, that looks like its war torn (from the many frustrations of gaming :p)

Eek, it didn't come. :(

They call it snail mail for a reason you know. :p

It should be here tommorrow, if it is, i'll have some renders by the afternoon.

*cough*
Well, looks like I'll do it.
Anyways, Marius did the making of the saber, while E-Varmint, aka Mysterious Stranger (he revealed it already, if you guys haven't already seen the post in his thread) UV Mapped it. I'm making requests for him to do, to see if there are any good textures in TSL that make the saber look good. Anyways, I has a render:

Still, If you don't cover how and why Revan is suddenly in your party, considering him/her is supposed to be somewhere in the outerim looking for "The true Sith" this may be a disaster... Although, if you do this right it may turn out great :D


I'm counting on you ;)

And you doubt me...
Because it isn't spoilers, I'll tell you the story:
Before Revan leaves Known Space (Keep in mind that this takes place after the power skirmish after Revan first left after defeating Malak, or, rather, after the academy become deserted.) Revan finds the tombs in the back of the Shyrak Caves, and cannot find the exit out of the caves. So, when he sees you, he disapates the vision next to him, and goes into combat with you. He kind of has the same mind-set Dustil was originally supposed to have in TSL. When you defeat him, he was smacked back into reality, and joins you.
