I have desided to make an intro to my mod. after you create your character you will come in on your last trial. This will be limited interacable, because it will be mostly like a cutsceen. It will come in on the player and his master. The master talking to you saying that this is your final test test. and I got a suprise for the final test. I will post a screenshot in this reply in a short showing what I have in store :P

EDIT: Im either going with bellow or going to spawn something/someone for him to test his courage. If anyone has any suggestions I would like to hear them.

intro1: telling player what he has done already(Will make it later where you spawn in with padawan clothes and training saber)
http://www.playergamefiles.com/screens/master1.jpg
Intro2: There is a short bit of dialog not showing here between the first pic and the second.
A battle between master and apprentice - secretly passing or failing hehe the trial of courage

Great WIP mod.One advice if its prekotor.Let the player meet Revan.As player was his\her friend and later his general.So it would be wise to add revan in the mod and try to show that they are friend or that they will become friend in the mod.Oh and it is not necessary nor good to do a voice acting for Revan.

True, but it is 10 years before manalorian wars so player could have joined him.(This is not the player of kotor2) not sure. But good idea. I'll add revan(i'll do a lightside reskin) and malak(jedi Skin) but wont do a big plot around them just as if they where any other jedi in the mod. but one thing If I put a head on revan instead of the mask what head would I use lol cause when he was a jedi he didnt wear the mask just the robes but a light side color brownish or something

P.S. I just thought of something, Im going to add some jedi from the cave on korriban. the ones that when you first enter with vision Malak.

1. Cariaga Sin - Female jedi_asian_female_01
2. Talvon Esan - Male Jedi_white_male_02
3. Nisotsa - Female - Jedi_white_female_05
4. Xaset Terep Male - Jedi_black_Male_05

I will add these to the coruscant temple and maybe 1 or 2 on other plants that you run into on your missions.

Oh and one other thing I will be modifiying the comlink system where you can activate it and talk to your master or a council member when your done with a mission, etc..

This looks very interesting, maybe if it is possible after you beat this you continue on word to the beginning of TSL. On thing for the jedi aprentices maybe you should switch around the colors so they aren't all purple. And keep up the good work.

Hey whats up!

I like the setup of this Mod. It would be cool to see a plot around the events before the Mandalorian wars.

As for the head of Revan,
I would say you can have a vote for the top 3 heads for the male and female version of Revan.
Or you can have a room with Jedi and you are told to give Revan a message. You have to ask a Jedi master and he/she will say.....and then have all the options of the heads there. Then the Script can then bring in the male/female Revan with the Head which you selected. Ex. you choose the option (Jedi Master: Oh, Revan is the one with the goatie and bald head over in the corner.)

One problem with having Revan in the main plot is that, age. If this is 10 years before the mandalorian wars, would that not make Revan around 10-13 years old. You could skin a young character and bump into him/her. They mention that, padawan or youngling is Revan...etc

I don't know your main plot, but if you move it the 2 years just before the Mandalorian wars then you can have him in the game.

Good luck with the Mod!

Logan

Sounds like a good idea. but I have decided to have Malak at the temple and Revan on a mission. Sence Malak already has a jedi head It may be him I use and Revan is out on a mission. And I may have it where you talk to Malak and you pick revans sex and then possibly meet revan on one of your missions.

Logan

Actualy I was thinking of having it 4/5 years before like the other games (kotor 1 to 2 is 4/5 years apart) That way revan and Malak would still look about the same cause they are fairly youngish during kotor 1.

P.S. I am in the works getting my own starwars crawl text like in the begining where it says A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... then shows the starwars logo and says about the movie/game I got someone working on it right now and will be sending it to me tonight or tomarrow. Will add a good touch to my game. What Im going to do is do a script right after the movie Im going to attach another movie that will show The camera moving down and showing the planet of coruscant then cut to the intro game.

Edit: I didnt want to double post so I am editing this one. I have the starwars intro movie and here are the screenshots, I'm having the 10 years moved to 5 years. And I'm going to edit the starwars intro sound to it so it looks right and I may use a male voice actor to read the crawling text as it goes by to give it something extra, not sure yet.

I like the idea of making it around 4 years before Mandolorian wars, and having the conversation with malak on what Revan's sex and description is perfect!

I'm curious on why the tile is Jedi Academy....

Look forward to more updates!

because its like the game jedi academy where the students go off on missions but instead on being set in luke era its kotor era :)

Edit: More info: When you first start out your mission is to check out reports of sith attacks. All your missions will lead you to the most powerfull sith ever
it will take your entire team to stop him, wich means yes your entire team will be fighting not just 3 of you

P.s. I will be releasing a demo version of the game once i get the intro movie script working right, and finish the trials(Tutorial type) It will be coruscant and 1 planet Remember its a demo and not a completed project it has alot of work to be done to it. It will probably have small bugs, etc.

Update: I changed the intro movie to non-sex because I was having problems with the script.
This gets me futher along. I will now have a demo version out sooner. Hopefully before September.
The first demo will be without voices or limited voices. and minor bugs probably. I have coruscant about 93% done and 1st planet dantooine about 15% done.

Things left to do:

Coruscant:
1. Modify the council's dialog & make them sit in the chairs
2. Edit the Merchant in the hallway with some crystals parts etc.
3. Make jedi's move around in the hallway like get a script that makes them walk to doors and exit and another will enter through a door and exit out another for realism
4. Waypoint problems waypoints dont want to work when i enter a door it takes me to the room start point instead of the wp.
5. edit the intro/begining beaf up the trials ( may not be in demo version)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dantooine (other side of planet at the Mandrell estate)

1. Add a group of dark jedi close to the entrance to the estate
2. add 2 dark jedi's at every map exit
3. Place rubble blockage at the bridge.
4. behind the building need to find some very large blockage/rubble (anyone know what?)
to limit area.
5. Add trigger on exit of ebon hawk that starts the dock robot dialog
6. Add the Mandrells inside the building + dialog and trigger for dialog
7. add trigger after talking to dock robot that triggers the comlink
8. add trigger after saving the mandrells and their dialog that triggers comlink
9. add dark jedi script before they attack you. That will trigger upon aproch ( just the ones at the house not the ones at the map exits) a dialog that your listing to them before they notice you then after they talk one of them notices you then attacks you.
10. on the after saving the mandrells and using comlink add dialog where the council sends you to your next mission at this point it will inform you that this is the end of the demo version.

Like i said above may or maynot be voiceovers in the demo version.
The Demo version will include:
1. Coruscant
2. Dantooine
3. Custom Intro movie
4. Custom Lauch background
5. All traces of The Sith Lords removed including the default load screen will be replaced.

I hope this helps yall, and gets you want this more and more :) Once the demo releases the full version will be released about 2-3 months after the demo depending mainly on how soon I can get voice actors. I have a couple people wanting to do it, but not sure if they fit the characters yet. I hope more will want to do it. The sooner I get all the spots filled the sooner it releases.

Hmm.... Just some things about the Comlink system.

Are you issued a new comlink for every "Mission"? If not, than you might want to play around with the conditional scripts for it to make it that there's more options when talking to the people instead of just having that single option....

I could be totally off-base with this considering that this is only a demo... but it bears saying.

No Its the same comlink with scripts to determine when what part is avaible and triggers through the game will use the comlink to trigger certin things in the comlin. and yes, I know about conditionals, infact I already have some.

Make sure you get someone to spellcheck that dialogue....
LOL it was a rush job to have a placeholder its not the final product. P.s. looking over it real quick i only see 1 misspelling.

I redited my intro movie and need suggestions feedback etc. to make it better before i finish it

About five years before the mandalorian wars,
the jedi temple on coruscant was filled with
promising students. During this time the
jedi knights often visited other worlds to
settle disputes and keep the peace.

At the Jedi temple, the jedi council started
reciving distress calls from all over the
galaxy. The best of the jedi were sent to
investigate.

Meanwhile, Master grayson is prepairing his
aprentice for knight hood. Will the aprentice
suceed or fail....

Things left to do:

Coruscant:
1. Modify the council's dialog, Make it sound good & make them sit in the chairs
3. Make jedi's move around in the hallway -- working on now

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

World/other:
1. Fix Galaxy map to show new planet Coruscant, remove Peragus & telos
On Onderon will lock the docking port and setup a dialog that says:
1. Goto the ebon hawk ( takes you inside the ebon hawk)
2. Step Away
Instead of showing the gwing. Or Possibly remove everyone from the first area
and find a model of ebon hawk and place it inside the first area.
not sure wich.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dantooine (other side of planet at the Mandrell estate) Still got to do these:

1. Add a group of dark jedi close to the entrance to the estate
2. add 2 dark jedi's at every map exit
3. Place rubble blockage at the bridge.
4. behind the building need to find some very large blockage/rubble (anyone know what?)

5. Add trigger on exit of ebon hawk that starts the dock robot dialog
6. Add the Mandrells inside the building + dialog and trigger for dialog

If you want to get the fonts correct for your trailer, use the following:

For the title: "The Jedi Academy", use the font named "Univers Light Ultra Condensed"

For the body of text, you'll want to use "ITC Franklin Gothic Demi Bold." According to an article I've read, they used 69 point with -30 tracking in the prequels for the crawls.

Going on to your proposed crawl text, I suggest the following spelling and grammatical changes.

About five years before the
MANDALORIAN WARS
the Jedi temple on Coruscant
was filled with promising
students. During this time the
Jedi Knights often visited other
worlds to settle disputes and
keep the peace.

At the Jedi temple, the Jedi
council started receiving
distress calls from all over the
galaxy. The best of the
Jedi were sent to investigate.

Meanwhile, MASTER GRAYSON
is preparing his apprentice for
knighthood. Will the apprentice
succeed or fail....
