New Beam Effects
=================
by Darth InSidious
==================

Description
-----------
This mod replaces the Force Drain, cold ray, ion, and neural pacifier beam effects with ones based on the unused Dxun Lava Fall texture, which has a bit more detail to it.
The mod also replaces the drain effect on enemies with one in a matching colour and slightly larger.
The mod does not replace the Death Field or Force Lightning effects effects. TriggerGod's "Enhanced Lightning" mod does, however, and that mod is recommended for use with this one.

Installation
------------
Just drop the files fx_beam01, fx_beam02, fx_beam03, Fx_Drain.tga and fx_tex_03.tga in this archive into your Override folder.

Uninstallation
--------------
Take the files out again. :)

I own none of the materials, and I'm not making any money out of this mod. It is to be distributed
as-is without alteration, unless by permission of the mod author. This mod is not to be distributed for profit, either.
Use it how you like, but if you're going to post it up somewhere, or make a derivate mod, or use it in another mod, you must
ask me first.

No. The textures used to make these are only in KotOR II.

Another DI mod added to the collection. Also added TG's enhanced lightning mod per reccomendation.
