[K1] Chained Force Lightning
 
Chained Force Lightning mod released.

Two beam effects to choose from:
Download (lightning beam)
Download (shock beam)
(PCGM links down...)

Download from Lucasfiles.com

Have you ever thought Force Lightning and Force Storm were just a little too much alike? This mod makes Force Lightning behave significantly different. The lightning now chains from one enemy to another with diminishing power in each arc. It's most effective on groups of 3 or more enemies where you can get a "closed-circuit", causing multiple zaps.

Damage:
First arc: 1d6 per Jedi level of best Jedi class (max: 10d6)
Subsequent arcs: diminished by 1d6 for every arc after the 1st

Range:
17m per arc

This mod consists of just a single .ncs file: k_sp1_generic.ncs. Up until now, I don't think any other mod distributes that .ncs file (including AIOFPM). So it should be compatible with just about everything.

Screenshots available at the download site.

What else would you expect from someone with a Tesla avatar?

Brilliant! :D Definitely in my override!

Question. Since this affects the behavior of Force Lightning, will this take affect on characters that already have this power, or would I (we) need to start a new game? I assume it'll take affect once installed...but ya' never know ;)

everytime I look at your avatar tk, I have the sudden urge to :guiness: hehehe

RedHawke 01-08-2005 12:43 AM

Now that's just something pretty darned handy tk! :)

And EVIL too! :lightning

Very nice! :D

Tk@ Can we see it bounce between enemies, or does it just..Well..Appear between all of them?

tk102 01-08-2005 05:19 AM

@Chainz.2da: Yes, the effect is immediate.

@Piece of Metal: I put a 0.2 sec delay between the arcs and each has its own sound, so you should be able to see the bounce. Lightning is kind of a 'messy' beam effect, so it's not as distinct as say the ending of Raiders of the Lost Arc. :)

Thanks for the feedback! Let me know if you think it's under- or overpowered. I spent as much time trying to balance it as I did coding it.

Raiders of The Lost Arc....That movie was so cool!
Have'nt seen it in a while though...
Anyways TK I love the new lighting...It looks SO cool!

Nice Tk. This is how chain lightning should be I always knew you were a PNP RPG gamer at heart.

Too true. I owe a good portion of my vocabulary to TSR Inc. :p

EnderWiggin 01-08-2005 08:00 AM

Very Nice....

_EW_

P.S. Tesla was a very intelligent man...

shosey 01-08-2005 08:33 AM

Excellent idea tk! Reminds me good old Warcraft 3 and the chain lightning the far seer hero had.

Darth333 01-08-2005 12:17 PM

Hehe looks good...and evil :dev11:

Bimmerman 01-08-2005 12:24 PM

Very nice job! How would I modify the spells.2da table from the AIOFPM to allow my character to have both Force Lightning and Force Storm without overriding Lightning when leveling up?

Lorden Darkblade 01-08-2005 12:57 PM

Great work.
Keep em coming.

tk102 01-08-2005 12:59 PM

@Bimmerman850CSi:

1. Open up the override version of spells.2da in KotOR Tool.

2. Locate FORCE_POWER_FORCE_STORM on row 25.

3. Change forcehostile number to 33 (something no other force power uses).

4. Change prerequisites field to **** (might not be necessary).

5. Change pips field to 1.

Save. That should do it. Someone chime in if I'm mistaken.

T7nowhere 01-08-2005 02:35 PM

:eek: tk is makin KotOR mods again. ;)

looks cool I'll definately use it next time I dust off KotOR.

Bimmerman 01-08-2005 04:04 PM

Thanks a bunch tk102-that worked

Shrub91 01-08-2005 04:15 PM

Is this compatible with your other mods?

What about the "shock" effect, wouldn't that be "cleaner"?

Nice work all the same. :)

Mav 01-08-2005 06:23 PM

Not a bad idea Mono. I'll check that out. If it looks much better I'll re-release it that way. Thanks!

Mono_Giganto 01-09-2005 09:17 AM

Happy to help!

tk102 01-09-2005 09:25 AM

"Clean" (shock beam) version now available from PCGM.
