I am working on a mod for TSL that gives you hoods to wear. I have the model in the game and working. Now to make other variants, one for each color jedi robe. I am working on fixing the clipping now.

Awesome! You got a "mask" item to export and such! Well done!

And the look is as awesome as ****!

Keep this going mate. This is great stuff!

Moving vertices. I just remodeled the hood, it looks more like Anakin's ROTS hood. Clipping fixed.

Looks good!

I've never played a hood mod before, so I need to ask: are they masks, or part of the robe, or what?

Anyway, keep up the good work!

They are masks.

UPDATE: New model. See first post.

Ha looks great ! =) but I would suggest maybe pulling the hood down a little in the front to almost cover the PC's forehead this could help it look even more realistic =) but very good job

Very nice Canderis. The hoods appear to have merged flawlessly into the jedi cloak.

are they stsationary or do they move and bend when you do?

Mask models move with the head, although the masks aren't exactly on top of your head, like this one is.

so it won't bend like a real hood will, but it will move with your head.

On the front, yes, back still a WIP.

Looks excellent. Hoods were one of the things missing in both KOTOR games.

Question: These are being added as masks (I do know that much) but are they going to have any bonuses?

I mean, you could have a set of masks that do nothing, but I think it would be cool to have some that give you some good bonuses. That way people like myself wouldn't have to choose between headband bonuses and awesome looking hoods.

Just a thought.

Canderis
07-20-2009, 10:14 PM
They give you a little bonus.

Did you model these after Avol's Hood mod? I use that mod and I love it.

Canderis
07-21-2009, 02:31 PM
At first I did, I wanted that mod to ,be back into circulation but then I decided to improve and this is the outcome.

I can see where your coming from there. As I can see room for improvement on Avol's mod. But seeing as how he's dissapeared and nobody can contact him. We can't tell him.

Improve you have, that first SS looks a lot better than the hoods in AVOL's mod.

UPDATE: I am getting the textures done for the other hoods as well as a few model tweaks. I am also looking for one beta tester. I am going to add a merchant on nar-shadda selling them so the beta tester should have a save before you get to that planet.

wait didn't someone already make this mod before

Canderis
07-25-2009, 08:30 PM
Yes. AVol and Kha made hood mods, but Kha's is quite small and only in a black-ish purple color and AVol's is hard to find. It is also not quite as good as it only uses the handmaiden hood.

The hoods look great!!!!

Will there be bonuses to your wisdom or another attribute?

I would love to see a pic where the PC is full dark side.

Yes there will be some minor bonuses. Nothing like super-powered.

I have started a V2 and I was wondering what you guys would want added. I will add some bonus to the hoods (so they are not just for looks) and fix the patcher. Anything else you guys want?

Darth Darkus
11-17-2009, 09:44 AM
I've been playing this mod for a while now and I feel like it would be really cool to wear regular masks under those hoods (for the sith guys hahaha) like the gas mask would look really cool or a modded sith mask... would you have to attach the hood to the robe for that or make a new version? I dunno... but I was thinking of a look pretty similar to that sith guy in the OLD REPUBLIC teaser...

Trench

Maybe a persuasion bonus, due to the intimidation factor.
