Newbiemodder's Korriban Expansion - TSL
 
Since everyone and their brother seems to be doing a wip these days, I decided to throw my hat into the ring. I've been working on this mod for several months now and have decided to share a little with rest of you. Basically, it just allows us to explore Korriban a little more, fight a few more baddies, complete a couple of sidequests, etc. Hopefully, it will enhance re-playing of tsl.

Here are some images:

You won't be able to access the new area directly from the EH. You still will have to go to the old Academy to get access.

For the floor of the valley, I'm reskinning 902Mal.

The Trayus Acad from malachor will be a Secret Sith Academy run by a new Dark Lord. For the interior, I reskinned the Queen's castle.

We'll meet a couple of new characters along the way...here are some.

And maybe an old one too.

Here's a couple of other random shots as well.

This is a new area/room I created inspired by the work of Quanon and Disbeliever. I've never done any modeling before..the pillars, and buildings I took from dxun. Special thanks to Disbeliever and Magnusll for help getting it to work!!

No time frame yet for completion, I keep tweeking the story and quests, add new things, etc. Thanks guys. Try not to be too brutal.

Sith Holocron 01-21-2010 02:49 PM

Is this new Academy completely replacing the old Academy? If so, where will the Sion cutscenes occur? If not, how do you access it?

newbiemodder 01-21-2010 02:56 PM

No no. Completely separate from the old academy. You still will have go to ruined academy and fight and flee from Sion. The idea is a secret adacamy that has existed for furthering the expoloration of the dark side located down in the valley of the lords.

Darth Payne 01-21-2010 04:01 PM

Wow, so far i have to say that this looks pretty damn impressive.

disbeliever 01-21-2010 05:29 PM

Happy to help anytime I can. Looking good, keep it goin

ZimmMaster 01-21-2010 06:04 PM

This is really good. I just have one question though. Will there be voice overs?

Lord of Hunger 01-21-2010 06:34 PM

Excellent work! I love it when someone completely off the modding radar comes in with a brilliant project and has made significant progress.

Best of luck in finishing the project. If the quests and dialog are even half as good as I'm predicting, this will have a spot in my override.

newbiemodder's been here for awhile.

He was pulling a "True Sith" by waiting for the perfect time to strike! Or... well, to post a WIP

newbiemodder 01-21-2010 11:32 PM

Thanks for the kind words guys. Means alot. And yes, Zimm, there will be vo's.

Tobias Reiper 01-21-2010 11:45 PM

I probably won't download.
Why?
Because it may look really nice, but nobody can ever match the feel of the levels created by Bioware and Obsidian, and it makes me feel strange playing it.
Also, I highly doubt anyone here has studio grade equipment, so mics crackle, and voice actors are never the best.

Hey that's cool. Everyone has their favorite types of mods. Some love new robes, or new sabers. I like new areas and characters. I'm not promising the perfect most spectacular mod ever created. It will have flaws. It's just a labor of love and hope it adds to re-plays.

Good for you! I think, with that, we should fold up Holowan and TUCE and simply stop working... our modding projects will never be up to TR's standards :giveup:




I think the work is fantastic, NM! When I saw your WIP thread I looked with morbid curiosity, and to my happy surprise saw considerable skill and effort.

Keep at it, despite the village idiots...

And do you realize that he's re-using Obsidian-made modules for this project?

and some people do actually have high-quality mics. Not all sound have background noise and a tinny sound to it.


Anyways newbiemodder, I just wanted to comment on your WIP cuz I realized I didn't earlier. Ahem..

The reskinned Korriban Modules look pretty sweet, I gotta say! It has a Jedi Knight: DF2 feel to it sort of and I gotta say, I'm liking!

My only input would of course, be the existence of NPCs to talk to: Korriban at this point is presumably uninhabited, so I don't see why there would be anyone alive on the planet, y'know? But it is your mod, so you make the calls ;)

Te Darasuum Mandalor 01-22-2010 08:41 PM

I'm so downloading this, M4-78, HK factory, and cut content on Malachor for my next play through of TSL!

newbiemodder 01-23-2010 12:14 PM

I'm not sure if I have something new here or not..I couldn't find any previous solutions in the threads so here it is:

http://img17.imageshack.us/i/jettd.jpg/

I was able to get the child to hold a lightsaber. Let me know if it has been done before and if I just wasted a morning. Anyway, if I can I plan on making this young padawan a puppet for one of our characters. For those of you who know your history and recognize the name the boy is a great ancestor to the great Biggs Darklighter friend of Luke Skywalker who was shot down by Vader over the Death Star.

Slstoev 01-23-2010 01:17 PM

I think JuniorModder would really like this unless he has already done this.

You'll be waiting for awhile then. The new M4-78EP has a long ways to go, though on the bright side, the HK Factory is likely soon to be wrapped up.

@ Newbiemodder

Hells yeah! It's a Darklighter! No offense, but I can't imagine it would be terribly difficult to get a child model to hold a saber. But, I don't know..

How are the animations working? Does it have power attack, flurry, etc?

And to which character do you plan on making him a puppet to?

Dak Drexl 01-23-2010 10:54 PM

This looks really good. Great use of Malachor, IMO. It would feel weird playing in the same Korriban modules, so I think that was a very good idea. I look forward to seeing this progress

Mr. Shadow 01-24-2010 01:15 AM

It looks like it's coming along very nicely, can't wait to see more. BTW, if you ever need a tester or a dialogue writer, just tell me. Also, I can take screenshots in 1680x1050 (on max settings of course rofl) and some nice lag free HD videos. (Unless, of course, you can already do both xD)

Sith Holocron 01-24-2010 01:50 AM

Planning to use any of Disciple's cut lines for any holocrons the Exile might come across?

Quanon 01-24-2010 07:55 AM

Impressive, very impressive.

Taken by suprise, wow, some cool reskins in there. At first sight I didn't recognize the Onderon Palace. A ton of Kudos to you sir Newbiemodder.

And did I see glimpse of a self modelled area? In the game? :p

newbiemodder 01-24-2010 11:57 AM

I think the model has only the basic animations. I don't know. I'm not too familiar with how those work. But, he can fight and defend himself which is ok for a puppet.

No I don't know how to do any of those things. and yes I will keep you in mind. Thx.

I haven't had a chance to check them out yet. I didn't know anything about them, but thanks for the PM and I will be checking it out. There could be a place for it because it sounds like it could fit.

Yes. Inspired by yours and Disbelievers awesome wip threads.

Looks quiet nice, certainly for your first "try outs" in 3D. :)
I'll be keeping an eye out on this nice little thread.

Rinku 01-24-2010 12:22 PM

Very nice :D keep it up!!

If I can get TSL to work on my comp I will dl this when it comes out ;).

Exile007 01-24-2010 12:34 PM

I'll be watching this with great interest. :)

Show spoiler


Nevertheless, it looks very nice. :D

Queen of Night 01-24-2010 01:54 PM

That looks really good. Are you planning another planet to create Kotor2? That would be more appropriate for these nice pictures or modules.

Goto's yacht...specifially the audience chamber.

newbiemodder 02-11-2010 02:04 PM

Just a little update. Things are proceeding. I have all my modules laid out with placeables and npc's etc. Now the tedious task of working on dialogs and making things work. Lot of trial and error with the scripts.

Not going to share too much at this time..do not want to ruin any surprises, but I have decided to incorporate a tomb that I had created for another mod of mine..the secrets of dagobah(never released)...you will find it somewhere on Korriban. Here are some interior shots...a reskin of Telos living quarters.

Special thanks to Kha for letting me use his hood mod. Thanks.

Queen of Night 02-11-2010 03:07 PM

It looks really mad cool.

logan23 02-12-2010 09:41 AM

Hey,

The Mod looks great!

I'm loving the new pics:thmbup1:

I have a question on how did you darken the module?
From the pics it seems that you darken Telo station's original module.
What did you alter to get his more darker feel/mood.

Keep up the great work!!

Logan

Quanon 02-12-2010 11:23 AM

Wow, applause for that :p
If you wouldn't have said it was the Telos modules... I'dd still be guessing what you used.

That reskin job looks very decent.

newbiemodder 02-12-2010 11:50 AM

@logan23 ---I just darkened the lightmaps a touch. I used gimp and toned down the brightness of each lightmap. Saved it under its new name and then hex-edited my room .mdl model with the new lightmap name.

Salzella 02-12-2010 12:24 PM

damn, really nice work so far. i particularly love the re-skins, i love the modules you've used and if it hadn't been said, i wouldn't have known which was used for what. really nice! i also love the idea of a 'valley floor' module, really nice concept and a great excuse to hide all manner of Sith goodies i bet :D

keep it up!

I believe you have earned yourself an EPIC WIN with that reskinned module.

newbiemodder 02-13-2010 11:16 PM

Here's another little update pic. Hope you enjoy my jawa "in action"

http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/6748/750korjawa.jpg

Slstoev 02-14-2010 12:02 AM

LOL A jawa holding a lightsaber. EPIC WIN!!!

I know that the jawas are a misterious race.
But that is something i didn't except.

P.S. Is that the Peragus mining level reskinned?

Yep my jawa with full combat animations.
Yes, that is Peragus mining level.

Darth Payne 02-14-2010 05:37 PM

WOW, now that would've made them a more worthy fight in TFU USE.

Can't wait to try that fight myself.

logan23 02-14-2010 05:43 PM

I saw the Jawa,...Have you done anything with the Vandar model/yoda. I sure people would love to see and download that.

Keep up the great work.

Also thanks for the tip

Logan
