Well here goes this is my first [WIP] mod...

Description

Okay the goal of my mod is to recreate certain key/big points in your past as revan... and make them playable visions. Right now I only have where bastila confronts you on the bridge of your flagship. But I plan on expanding it.

Modules (Current/Future)

-Revans (Sith) Flagship- (Reused Leviathan)

-Taris- (old/new modules)
Skybridge (New Modules)
Mandalorian Base(New Modules)

-Revans Flagship- (reused/new EndarSpire)

More to come

Future plans

I'm planning on incorporating this after you find out your revan. Then at certain points you have visions about your past... One thing I definetly want to do is add some parts about your role in the mandalorian wars... I mean come on who wouldn't want to play revan at that point... I know I would...

I know theres alot of bugs. But if you see any feel free to let me know. Also if you have any ideas you would like to voice feel free.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Silveredge has already done this and he is currently working on an expansion for his mod :)

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Silveredge has already done this and he is currently working on an expansion off his mod :)

Ya know I thought Silveredge had done something like this but i haven't had time to download/play his Brotherhood of Shadow mod so I wasn't sure. But hopefully I can make this mod my own and feel original... But if this is similar to Silveredge's mod i'm sorry and didn't intensionaly copy any work that he did.

[Edit]
By the way Silveredge if you see this and feel that it infringes on your mod I will take it down.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Silveredge has already done this and he is currently working on an expansion for his mod :)

The focus of the Brotherhood of Shadow mod was Silveredge's additional storyline, with the vision of Revan on his flagship expanded on in Silveredge's unique way and surrounded by a heavy backstory. I expect the focus of jamezy91's mod is the vision itself, which is welcome for those who just want to play through Revan's memories.

Don't worry jamezy91, as long as you stay away from making a merchant ship infested by ancient Sith spirits, a servant named "Matilda", and a lethan Twilek admiral you'll be fine.

How do you plan on making the star map location visions playable? Like what kind of stuff will you have to accomplish? Or am I asking too much?

I don't really understand the question.

But my whole goal to this is to just make a series of playable visions you have after you discover your revan. I haven't worked out all the details just yet but in the visions I realy just wanted to explore your (revan's) past. Just little tidbits. A few things that really interest me are the points between when you go off to fight the mandalorians... and maybe a few things of
discovering the starforge and junk...

What I meant is what you're going to do to make the visions playable. As in what sort of gameplay will you be putting into the vision quests. Such as; fighting a boss, working your way to the star map like in the normal KOTOR, etc.

One quick suggestion, IIRC, Revan had only one lightsaber during the flagship scene, and it was quite red. Other than that, awesome, looks like its going into my override :)

Well I don't think each one will be long enough to do an actual quest but... Ya never know. I was just planning on doing each vision as a boss fight but I do want them to be more than just more bosses in the game. I want it to feel as if you are actually remembering your past in small little tidbits. I might be able add a couple of longer ones for quests. but again I still have to work out a little outline of each one. And this one was easier cause there was alot more to go off of.

By the way if theres something you'd like to see in this feel free to let me know.

Yeah what the deal was with that is I already had a blue lightsaber in my left hand when I warped that time to take screens... And I will be working on a script to remove another lightsaber if equipped at the start.

Yeah it is. I was hoping someone would recognize it. And about the voiced dialog... Well I have been thinking about it. But I haven't got my story all lined out yet. But if there is enough unvoiced dialog then i'll most likely do voiced dialog... But it's still in the air right now.

Great work, now that I know what it is I had to look it up.

I guess your not done with the bottom of it here is a reference shot I found:
http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/9/99/Towerbottom.jpg

Will we be seeing anyone from the KoToR comics in the tower?

Maybe a younger Alec Squinwhatevahisnameisamus with hair?.

I doubt we'll actually see the bottom of it: there's only so much you can see over the walls.

jamezy91
07-22-2008, 10:37 PM
I guess your not done with the bottom.

I will be doing what you'll see at any given time... Anyone familiar with the comics know that this is a huge module so i'll most likely have to do a lot of modeling for like if you were looking over the side to the tower.

I really want to capture the massiveness that I felt when I first played Taris for the first time.

Well I don't think I will to the interior. But there might be some references/appearances from ppl in the comics.

You must wait and see :xp:... But even if I do he'll still be bald.

Well it sure has been a while... You can blame that on my laptop dying while I've been away from home this summer. But anyway that's all another story.

... Well here we go. The story has been coming along very well. I've got a lot of it worked out. Plus a new love interest :D. It's really going to work into Revan's fall and be a big part of it. just fudging the cannon border lines a bit lol.

I've also got a photo update of another level I've been working on.

Well I was hopeing I wouldn't have this much trouble showing everyone I want to stay as far away from Silvers mod as I can. It does look bad when mods are placed around the same time period. But I guess what im gonna have to do is just play BOS so I can make sure that nothing looks like I just took his idea changed a few things and wala...

This looks great! I actually put up a mod request a few months ago that is similar to this, was hoping someone would basically reconstruct the bink videos using the actual gameplay for KOTOR 1. In TSL, someone took the bink video of Visas interacting with Nihilus and made it work with the in-game models, textures, etc. Seems like you're not quite doing that, but something very similar, perhaps when you're done you might be able to make that happen. I hate to impose on modders and their works, but you're doing alot of the footwork already. Anyway, again, this looks great, good luck.

Nope there not. I'm still on the fence if i'm going to be doing the interior of the Tower. If I do it will most likely just be a bonus. I wouldn't mind doing it. But still it's only me doing this and I don't want to overload myself :D. Even though this mod is already getting a little bigger than I planned :nut:... But thats okay with me.

I wouldn't worry about it, I'm sure Silver isn't bothered or threatened by your mod, and indeed would encourage you wit your efforts; my advice is make the mod as you want it; then release it, don't worry about anyone else and don't try to pander to what lots of different people want/suggest - but do take on board any constructive criticism you find useful. End of the day its a considerable amount of time and skill to create what your aiming for, and if its similar to what SE has done; so what? It's not as if Revan's past is wildly different, especially if your doing key points we know about about. Keep going as your going, and produce what you want, don't worry about anyone else, not least quite a few silly people who have very little modding ability thinking your too close to Silver projects. - My 2 cents - good luck with your project, is looking very promising so far :)

Eh? Given the mod has only partly been released as a Beta, and Jamie hasn't outlined fully the project, what kind of comment is that?

Please put more efforts into your comments, or don't bother posting - if you have a specific part of the Mandalorian Wars you want point it out - but don't come up with silly statements such as that - myself and several of the 'old guard' are rather distressed at what Holowan is slowly turning into -> namely a place with inane comments and a fair ammount of fanboy - "OMG that's amazing" pants [/End Rant].

Quality work so far Jamie - I am still look forward to what you have in store for us :)

No thats just a working version (though incomplete) of the fight on revan's flagship... Sorry:(.

A bonus? So we'll be just passing by through there?*If i'm understanding the question properly* Yes more or less... But right now my story dose not take the player inside the tower for any reason.

It may already have been said, so I might be whipping a dead horse but..

During the Bastila+2 Jedi vs. Revan vision.. There was an explosion that cut the fight short and knocked Revan out. Hence the loss of memory.

I could be wrong about the reason he lost memory, but that fight was cut short...

Yes I do realize that the fight in the vision/video version currently in the game dose not have a fight... but when I descided to include it it wouldn't be a playable vision if there wasn't anything to do than just watch the scene unfold...

I wanted to add a little more life to it... in my version you/revan will be able to reply to bastila then when you have finished then the fight begins and after that the vision procedes as it did in the game... -Jamezy91-

Hence the loss of memory.

Actually, the explosion just knocked him out. AFAIK, the Jedi Council were the ones who erased Revan's memory. But yes, the explosion did cut the fight short, but that doesn't mean they can't fight a little before the explosion.
