Hey guys! R9-PE is a character in my mod: The New Jedi Order (http://sites.google.com/site/thenewjediordermod/home). I renamed him to C5-PE because C5 sounds better than R9. He is a sensor droid.

I originally had my character Helayna (http://sites.google.com/site/thenewjediordermod/characters/helayna), build him before either join your party. But, I thought that she was too similar to Bao-Dur. So I'm asking you all to give me a new, better way of acquiring him! :)

If the PC builds the droid you must create a purpose to why you would build a protocol droid since he does not have much for attack animations.

I like the idea of building the droid but i would have the finished droid = a move forward in the story or open the quest that allows the main plot to go forward or open a large sidequest that touches on the PC or the Jedi Order.

B1-D1 is the protocol droid. I knew that the protocol droid didn't have very good attack animations, so I decided to give him other abilities. But C5, is not a protocol droid. He is a sensor droid (as of right now, that may change). And C5 does play a decent part in the story.

I'd go with the party finds him damaged, and Helayna repairs him. :D

Thanks for voting, I like that idea also.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! :evil3::eek:

Perhaps C5 could replace that useless HK-50 droid you find on Telos?

I mean, you find a HK droid, get all exited when you find he can be fixed, only to find that he blows up?

The HK-50 droid was supposed to be foreshadowing. Note where he blows up - right in the vicinity of the door that should lead to the HK Factory

C5 is in my New Jedi Order (http://sites.google.com/site/thenewjediordermod/) mod so that scene won't happen in the game.

This is my idea. You should find him as a pile of scraps and have Helayna repair him. Although, she finds a few pieces that she just can't put together. So, if the PC's repair skill is high enough, he/she will have to repair him. But, you should also make it so, if the PC's repair isn't high enough, he/she can fail to repair him and he will have to sit there until a later date. When the PC's repair is high enough.

Pretty much like the HK repair thing in K1 then?

Helayna can put him together, but the PC has to finish his repairs?

Repairing HK was in TSL. ;)

Or you would have to buy some extra pieces from various merchants. But C5 has to be finished at some point in the game.

I have been thinking of a lot of things and problems with C5. Well C5 plays an important role, when the party is captured by a sith ship, C5 goes and shuts off the force cages. Not having him would have major issues.
I think that perhaps Helayna should be nothing more than a friend of C5, because I can't think of a reason that Helayna would join the party if your evil. I have an idea for a dark side character to replace her.

Actually, i meant the fact that you have to/can try repairing HKs memory core.

There is even a funny line in which HK cries out for a medic.

Oh Yea, I forgot about that! And when you install the Pacifist package in TSL. Priceless.

On TOPIC: I'm going to make C5 able to equip weapons and armor, so he is pretty useful.

I gotta go with found by the party JM. But you could script it to where if he was found, he would need some serious repair to work properly (In other words he would be functioning halfway when found). And of course the PC would need to find the parts for Helayna to totally repair him and so on.

As for one other reason to repair him to be fully functional: He could have the ability to tap-in or access a computer terminal (once he's operarating properly) on a ship or some planet that the PC goes or needs to go to in one mission, in order to obtain important info that is required for another mission . But you could possibly link that important reason to all the events in your mod together, the side missions, the main mission, the small quests, etc.


Anyway, just another idea for you. ;)
