View Full Version : [WIP] K1 Original Trilogy Enhancement Mod


Dak Drexl
07-12-2010, 12:46 AM
I love the Original Trilogy. Who doesn't? Let's be honest, you would not be here if you didn't! That's why I want to bring as much of the Orignal Trilogy as I can into the world of KotOR.

Essentially what this will be is a massive reskin mod which will change most major aspects of the game to have a more Original Trilogy feel to it. For example, here's what I have done so far:

Republic Soldiers > Rebel Soldiers (Thanks to Canderis)

Carth Onasi > Han Solo

Sith Soldiers > Stormtroopers

Fett Style Mandalorians (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/Fett_Style_Mandalorians_for_K1;109653)

Movie Style Saber Textures (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/MovieStyle_Retextures_for_Kotor_TSL;115609)

HK-47 > IG-88 (Thanks to Kyr'am Galaar)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsBwKKEXla8

Now, what I ask of the community is this:
If you have an idea for a change you would like to see, please pitch in. Also, if you have made or know of any good OT mods to include, let me know! The way I see it, this should be a massive collaboration of sorts like the Holowan Plugin. Character skins, weapons, armors, saber hilts... everything is needed and welcome in order to provide the best OT experience! I have already sent out several requests to use other people's mods, and allowing me to do so would be greatly appreciated.


Any comments, ideas, and criticisms are welcome :)

This looks really interesting, but you might want to work a bit more on Solo...

this is going to be great - i have a question - are you changing the story or are you just giving the game that look?

the flickering lightsaber blades mod would be great as well as the movie style hilts mod

Hondros
07-12-2010, 12:26 PM
I think you should try to model a custom lightsaber for all major characters (Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, etc.)
Here are some conversions I think that would do good:
Darth Nihilis - Darth Vader
Mira - Leia
That one other guy you get instead of handmaiden - Luke

That's all for me for now xD

Kyr'am Galaar
07-12-2010, 01:13 PM
Actually, Hondros, It's for KotOR. Not TSL.

LDR

I have a few ideas.

Ebon Hawk -> Millennium Falcon
Endar Spire -> Tantive IV
Star Forge -> Death Star
Bastila -> Leia
Zaalbar -> Chewbacca
T3-M4 -> R2-D2
HK-47 -> C-3P0?
Canderous -> Lando Calrissian
Trask -> Captain Raymus Antilles (Make him wear the Rebel outfit, only instead of blue, make it orange.)
Darth Malak -> Darth Vader
Darth Bandon -> Starkiller
Saul Karath -> Grand Moff Tarkin
Sith Masters -> Shadow Guards
Dark Jedi Masters -> Royal Guards
Calo Nord -> Boba Fett
Uthar Wynn -> Darth Maul
Yuthura Ban -> Assajj Ventress
Jorak Uln -> Dooku
Vandar -> Yoda
Vrook -> Mace Windu
Dorak -> Kit Fisto
Zhar -> Cin Drallig
Sith Elite Trooper -> Shadow Trooper
Sith Heavy Trooper -> EVO Trooper

Wow everyone, thanks for the responses and ideas! I'm on my iPhone so I can't really quote properly so I'll try to answer questions as best as possible...

@bryzz, it's funny you should ask about changing the story. This was actually the first mod I ever attempted - I successfully changed the story through loads of dialogue, but then the voice overs did not match the text so it was kind of silly.., a lot of work with a not so great result. As for the flickering blades, I'll try to get DJ's newest release. It's really good.

@Prudii, I'll see about getting those models. I've already asked Mono about using one of his, but I never realized how many awesome ones he has.

@LDR, I like all the ideas a lot; I actually had a bunch of those already too :)
I'll probably use most of them, but I'm trying to keep it strictly OT, so characters like Mace Windu will not be represented.

@Rinku, if I could pull off IG-88, I would be my hero :xp:
Killer idea.

LDR
07-13-2010, 01:01 AM
So, which ones are you not using?

redrob41
07-13-2010, 02:10 PM
that's a good start so far. Ben looks recognizable, but Han could use some work.

I'll look forward to seeing how you progress, and which characters you decide to do :)

Thanks! They both will be worked on more because the way I see it the party members are the most important because you see them the most, if you know what I mean.

Here's an improved Han:

And what I have so far of IG-88. I think it's okay, but I can't do anything more if I can't figure out how to UVWmap. Any volunteers or teachers in the house? :p

I think that since its the Empire Era and your gonna end up having to fight lots of Sith I think you should change them to these: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Shadowtrooper

and yes I know their kind of after the original but they are closest thing i can think of to replace dark jedi.

Edit: and you could always explain it was the Starforges doing :P

For the Shadow Guards, why don't you chop off a Mando's head, add it to a robe, and reskin?

Dak Drexl

That was the idea, but I have no clue how to chop off its head and make it wearable. I know just who to ask though.

Hoping that Prime lets me use his Stormtroopers and lets me edit them, there will be three variants of troopers you will confront. There is the standard stormtrooper, the EVO trooper (http://blog.makezine.com/upload/2008/11/starWars111208_3.jpg), and the shadow trooper. Here is what I hope to be the Shadow Trooper:

Here is the second variant of Stormtrooper, the EVO trooper. It will replace the Sith Elite Trooper and will wield this (http://knightsoftheoldrepublic.filefront.com/file/T21_Light_Repeating_Blaster;85231) bad boy if Inyri gives me the ok :)

Looks nice. But you might want to put something inside those holes, likely something that looks like the innards of the plating, like some of them might've had different levels of damage. Maybe making the holes a bit more scattered, and not so concentrated(unless you mean the armor to have been hit by something like a Repeating Blaster, then that would make sense).

That's actually what I had in mind (the repeating blaster thing). I love the idea about putting some plating behind the holes though - I'll give that a shot.

Thanks :thmbup1:

I've been away a little, but I haven't been completely idle. Prime recently approved both his Stormtrooper and his Imperial Officers, so count on both of those to be included!

I've recently started weapons placing - so far I've done the lightsabers, using oldflash's movie style hilts that are from the OT. I am replacing the standard blue, red, and green saber hilts. Also, Jolee gets his own saber (Obi-Wan's) as does Malak (Vader's). Next will hopefully come guns, but I have not recieved work from Mono_Giganto about using his models, so I'll have to wait.

Hilts (Excluding a couple):

I have a question for people. I am going to try make a few weapon models from the OT like Leia's blaster pistol, the Jawa ion rifle, scout trooper blaster pistol, etc. I know some will work out better than others, but my only question is:

Where should these weapons be found? I thought of either replacing certain vanilla models or making new merchants who would be like cameo appearances where you can buy them. Ideas? Thanks.

I've actually used this mod before and I just feel like something is missing from it :confused: I'm going to try to make my own Vader skin (probably much like that), mostly because I don't think Spartan is around anymore. If I can't pull it off then I'll try to ask for Spartan's permission to edit his if mine doesn't turn out so hot. That's a very good skin though.

Dak Drexl
08-08-2010, 04:48 PM
Ok, so lately I've been at work learning some 3d modeling - specifically guns. I've modeled a few guns from the OT that will be sold by either 1 or 2 merchants - I haven't decided yet. The thought is either to have 1 "lower level" weapon merchant on Taris and 1 "Higher" on Tatooine, or just increase the stats of the "lower" weapons and have them sold by the Tatooine merchant. I'm leaning towards one merchant, but I dunno. Either way, the merchant on Tatooine will be Thuku (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Thuku), who Kyr'am Galaar is working on.

And here are the models I've done so far. More ideas are welcome.

when it comes to droids.....
if i recall correctly in kotor there is one or two medical droids you see during the game. i was wondering if you might want to include in your mod a reskin of them to the 1b? medical droid that replaced Luke's hand at the end of chapter V the empire strikes back.

Unfortunately I just tried to revive this project and there were just too many files that could be organized again, so I got rid of all of them. It's unlikely that I'll revive this again, so please lock this thread. If I ever come back to it I'll get it unlocked.
