Well, it's been a while since my last mod, and this is going to be a somehow big project. Here it is:

There will be this chamber, with two pathways, in the left we will have men, and in the right, women. There will be 5 men and 5 women. What are you going to do with them?

Well , recruit them!!:p

For the first time (I believe), there will be a mod that can change completely all your party. There will be dialogues and stuff, and if some voice-actors post here that they'd like to voice-act, it'll be better!:D

I'll need beta-testers, so , if you're interested, please state it here!!

Party members stories and other stuff coming soon.:D

Oooh I like this mod. I guess I could help beta test since I have a lot of time on my hands. Though I only like to talk about the mod and such over MSN.

I could also help you write characters and character stories. Since that is more my specialty

This sounds like an intriguing mod.:D I like watching mods develop from idea-release. It is a fascinating process. I might opt-in on the beta testing if my schedule permits. Good luck!

It'll be the second. In 2004, Darth Straker made a TC-recruit mod called The Sith Armada.

Anyway, if you have any specific questions, send me a PM ;)

And as long as it's not for the next week, I'll beta for you if you'd like.

@zero Glad to hear that!:D

@canderis No, because if for example Kreia is replaced by, let's say, Weasel, then Weasel will have all the plot dialogues spoken by Kreia!;)

@DX Thanks, pal!:)

@Atris I'll wait for your PM.

Ok, I'm now making the first two party members, Savho and Lehah. Here is a small description of them:

Savho

Name: Savho
Species: Selkath
Class: Scout
How did he end up in the Recruitment chamber: Political refugee from Manaan.

The Selkath is rather young for his age compared to the other party members. He remains able to wield a blaster perfectly, after a vicious injury on his right hand. This renders him completely unable to wield longswords. Savho prefers to wield various forms of heavy weaponry and go headfirst into battle. On Manaan Savho began an early life at Bounty Hunting. Savho became a very famous Bounty Hunter before receiving a rather strange order, an assassination of a Sith. However, after he single-handedly dispatched the Sith, he noticed a few hundred Sith had surrounded him. Savho was forced to eliminate them, before being caught by the Manaan law enforcement. Savho made the choice to leave the planet to avoid death. During his battle with the Sith, Savho got shot in the right hand and received his wound that renders him incapable of wielding longswords.


Lehah

Name: Lehah
Species: Yoda species
Class: Jedi Guardian
How did he end up in the Recruitment chamber: He wanted to help the Exile.

Lehah is rather old for a Jedi Guardian. He rests somewhere in between 300 to 400 years old. After facing his Jedi Knight trials he decided to become a casual Jedi and stay in the Temple most of the time. He trained an apprentice by the name of “Bandon”. After training Bandon to Jedi Knight, his Padawan fell to the dark side of the Force during the battle of Malachor V. Bandon was trained by Darth Malak, a few years later, as his apprentice. Before Bandon was killed by Revan, he went to the Jedi temple on Yavin 4, and challenged Lehah in a duel. Lehah defeated his former apprentice easily, but hadn’t the courage to finish him off. After losing, Bandon taunted that Darth Malak would destroy the academy. Lehah managed to warn several Jedi and masters to leave. But he couldn’t stop the academy from being destroyed. Afterwards Lehah hid on various known worlds until he was drawn by the force aura the Jedi Exile gave off. He understood that the Exile was the only help for the Jedi Order, and went to the Recruitment chamber to meet him there.


Hope you like them! More are coming!;)

Species: Selkath


Species: Yoda species



Umm, not to burst your bubble, but I don't think those 2 species has combat animations...

The Selkath obviously have some, since they attack you in K1. They don't have force power animations, IIRC, but that's not a problem for Istorian as his character's a bounty hunter.

The Yoda species do have some animations, as Achilles made a recruitment mod, (Mendah, I believe) that featured one.

Selkath do not have force animations or sword animations. However if you read the description you would know that he is a bounty hunter and recieved a wound in his right hand. Which makes him incapable of wielding swords.

As Ender just said the Vandar model does have animations that work very well with this mod

I think the Yoda species model doesn't have blaster animations and either power attack or critical strike. (It's been a while since I've messed around with it)

yea the yoda species doesnt have combat animations for dual wield either. if u download the mod off of kotorfiles that gives u robes that make u lok like vandar kavar zezkaiell and vrook then u can see which animations vandar has by wearin his outfit

Thanks, EW!! once again, you made my day!:D

Now, I found out that there are animations for the Yoda Species, because I made a small module with Kavar and Vandar fighting, and Vandar had all combat animations!;) (And, he defeated and killed Kavar!!!:lol:)

So, when I have some free time, I will post the descriptions for two other party members!

And don't forget: Descriptions are made by one of the best FIC writers in LF: RakataDark!!:xp: Thank you, RakataDark, for the great descriptions!!:D

Rofl your very welcome Istorian.

Also to the question about story oriented party members. From what Istorian has told me is that the party member that you choose to replace will have all the story oriented text that the original party member had. (Albiet changed). But I still don't know how he is going to do this with droid party members and non jedis. (Especially if you want to replace a droid with Kreia. That would be odd during the Endgame)

Sadly, I am not going to be able to beta-test. I have mods underway for K1 and TSL which require that I keep my override folders cleared of all non-standard files (for debugging purposes).

On the subject of Vandar, he is hell with a lightsaber! It is hilarious to watch. I think Lehah will be a great character.

Two more party member descriptions. We have 1 male left, and 5 females, and we're done with the descriptions!:D

Archay

Name: RK (Archay)
Species: Droid
Class: Assassin droid
How did he end up in the Recruitment chamber: being sold by his owner

Archay is a unique droid, as the project of creating similar droids was
abandoned. Archay was built as a protocol droid and sold on various
worlds before landing on Tatooine. He was reprogrammed and pawned off as
an assassin droid to a wealthy Hutt crime lord. Under his tutelage, Archay
learned more about killing targets. At one point, he was considered the
best assassin droid on Tatooine. However much of his former protocols
still functioned. When he killed various targets inside his master's home
he would always clean up the mess and clean his frame. Thus, he became
less vicious than many other assassin droids and was eventually replaced.
Archay was sold to the owner of the recruitment chamber. Unlike other
assassin droids, Archay doesn't always kill most of his targets. He first
asks for reasons to kill the target. Or he compliments his master's
appearance if he can avoid killing.

Cypher

Name: Cypher
Species: Rakata
Class: Scoundrel
How did he end up in the Recruitment chamber: Lost his gang, was drawn to the Exile in a way to get revenge

Cypher was born on Lehon, or Rakata Prime, but he left the world soon after his parents died. He traveled to Nar Shadaa and started a very large swoop racing gang. Cypher had a son by the name of Culpos. After 2 years of leading the gang, Cypher's gang headquarters were attacked by the Exchange. Cypher barely managed to escape with his life as his entire gang died. Cypher lost his son, and he never saw him again. Cypher swore revenge against the Exchange, and he traveled in many planets to sabotage the Exchange's businesses. He was drawn to the Exile as he was looking for someone who could help him with his revenge. Like many other Rakata he is a Force sensitive. But he does not know how to wield the Force. Perhaps if he sides with the Exile, he can learn how to use the Force.

EW, first congratulations on 2,000 posts.

Now, yes you're right, I wanted to write tutelage....I'll fix that....and yes, Rakatan models exist in K2, I've already assembled every character.....Thanks for the support..

Well you haven't provided any info as to what the dialogue's like. I don't know about everyone else, but I like to have a little taste of the dialogue before I decide to spend my energy voicing a potentially poorly-written character. Not trying to suggest anything, but better safe than sorry.

If you're really looking for voice actors, include several sample lines of their dialogue to entice your would-be actors.

a Male Yoda Species
a Male Jedi
two female Jedi
a Female Tech Specialist
people to voice-over some new lines of the original party members of the game (Kreia, HK-47, Mandalore, Visas etc.)


Will be waiting!;)
