TOP Secret Project (Just kidding, it's all of the gritty details, or not)
 
Lately, I've noticed something. People around here decide to start a mod, and they detail all of the characters and the whole plot right at the beginning. While I admire all those folks' planning ahead, my friend Canderis and I disagree with this strategy. So, if you are reading this, and hoping to hear any details about this mod, then you had better try and find a different thread to read. Because this thread, this little corner of the Internet, will not share its secrets! It will take them to its grave (or wherever deleted threads go)!!!!

However, this is also a teaser thread, so prepare to be teased. I sure hope that you leave this thread more confused and curious than when you first opened it in your little browser. In fact, I hope that after reading all this, that your brain would lose some sense of exactly what modding is. I hope that you are inspired to be an astronaut, cosmonaut, or cosmetologist after viewing the teaser that is about to taze you. In fact, I hope that you devote all of your internet hacking skills away from the usual money-making schemes just to discover exactly what is going on here.

I guess the first thing that I should talk about is exactly what a mod is.

"Well, what is a mod?" You might ask.

Well, that is an excellent question. And I do not intend to answer it here. Because if you are here, then you should know exactly what a mod is, and you would not have the slightest inclination to ask "Well, what is a mod?".

But, if you were to ask, "Well, what is a mod?" I might answer you with a song.

To be sung to no particular tune:


-The Mod Song-


Oho-what-is-a-mod?

Is-it-a-clump-or-a-clod?

Of-course-it-is-not!

No-more-than-a-circle-is-a-dot!

That-would-be-like-likening

Science-to-astronomy!

No-a-mod-is-much-more-dear!

But-do-not-shed-a-tear!

And-do-never-fear!

For-a-mod-is-what-it-is!

There's-just-no-more-to-this!

It-will-be-done-when-it's-done!

(Except-for-total-conversion-mods!)

Which-will-be-done-only-if-logan23-says-so!



I hope that after hearing those special words, that you are brought to tears, and that your soul can rejoice at finding the true meaning of Mod.

But, lo, there are people to be teased! So let the SEVENTY-FOURTH-ANNUAL-HUNGER-GAMES-BEGIN!!!

Sorry, I meant:


But, lo, there are people to be teased! So let the GIZKA-INVASION-COMMENCE!



There's going to be lots, and lots, of GIZKA!!!! :eek:

That's a good question.

TWINKEYRUNAWAY 08-19-2012 02:14 AM

._. In all seriousness though, is this something for the first or 2nd kotor? or both??? Knowing both you and canderis..its going to be top notch and exciting.

Canderis 08-19-2012 02:15 AM

That, my friend, is a very, very good question. I would answer in song, but I'm a little busy.

Ah, I will answer that in song!

To be sung to Yankee Doodle Dandy

The TWINKEYRUNAWAY Song

TWINKEYRUNAWAY-went-to-Lucasforums-on-his-computer

TWINKEYRUNAWAY-does-it-matter?

Does-it-really-matter?

Mind-your-questions-in-this-thread-or-you'll-meet-the-mad-hatter!



I have one word for you.

GIZKAS WILL INVADE!

Mandalore5 08-19-2012 09:55 AM

OK, I've got something worked out from the images, but it's probably wrong: it's for K1, and based around Tatooine. How did I get there? The gun reskin looked like Swiss Cheese. Switzerland, famous for the Swiss Army Knife, used by military commandos. Gun, plus the Aston Martin logo, plus the Swiss reference made me think of James Bond, a secret agent. Add to that the Stormtrooper helmets, elite soldiers. Then you've got the Jedi warriors fighting in the shadow of the Second Death Star. There were no known Jedi fighting at that time, except Luke Skywalker. This suggests a secret team of Jedi commandos. Luke also made his first public appearance as a fully-fledged Jedi Knight in Jabba's Palace, which links to the Hutt-beanbag; also the stormtroopers being eaten links to the Rancor - the above points lead to Return of the Jedi. A secret team of Jedi commandos, one of which has returned to the Jedi - Revan, Bastila, Jolee, Juhani and the others. Plus the Hutts ang Gizka are all on Tatooine, as is Jabba's Palace. Am I right?

Sithspecter 08-19-2012 10:30 AM

That is an interesting observation. Let me answer that with a song.

To be sung to no particular tune:

The Mandalore5 Song

Oho-Mandalore5-is-wrong!

So-very-wrong!

Be-cause-he-has-failed-to-see

That-the-car-which-is-very-shiny

Is-actually-a-Corvette

And-not-at-all-an-Aston-Martin!

This-is-so-sad!

So-very-sad!

Be-cause-Mandalore5's-train-of-thought-was-good

But-it-got-derailed-at-the-boarding-station!




Thank you for playing! Would you like to try again?

Actually, I thought it was Spongebob Squarepants.

And the Stormtrooper cereal is just a bunch of stormtrooper lego helmets thrown into a bowl of milk.

All of those images are spam and have no relevance in the thread other than to throw us off. (And you also placed them from largest to smallest, like an upside-down triangle.)

SS, you, my friend, are very clever, well done. Very cryptic as well.

And what do I think the mod will be? Well, I think something about those gizka that are on the Ebon Hawk.

Meh.

Sithspecter 08-19-2012 04:12 PM

That, my friend, is a very, very, excellent observation. I decline to answer you in song, but Canderis might if he feels like it.

I hope everyone is enjoying the shenanigans.

TWINKEYRUNAWAY 08-19-2012 04:45 PM

:p yeah.

Christos K 08-19-2012 04:48 PM

I think I'm onto this...

A) Its a mod...

OR

B) Its a diversion, from some horror they wish to unleash on us. Everyone make sure to monitor each and every other post that these two post...

OR

Z) Sleheyron?

I'm going to debunk that. This is not Sleheyron. A member named disbeliever still has a WIP on that. We are officially not a part of it. This is different.

And please do read the Mod Song. Or sing it.

Canderis 08-19-2012 04:56 PM

I am going to add one more SERIOUS post. This is a very real project. Not just spam.

Sith Holocron 08-19-2012 05:30 PM

Thankfully, I have an idea of what this is all about.

However, I can't say anything because I fear the Gizka invasion. Fear it!

Sithspecter 08-19-2012 05:56 PM

Haha, that's what you think...

Mandalore5 08-19-2012 06:13 PM

I looked at the badge, and thought an Aston - Corvettes aren't really seen in the UK.
I would indeed like to play again, but I'm going to go slower this time.

After reading The Mod Song again, I think it's a new planet. Am I right here?

Zhaboka 08-19-2012 06:18 PM

Ohhhhh, I get it, you guys are making KotOR IV... duh. It makes sense, considering Canderis' high regard for any and all TCs, plus it confirms my long-held suspicions about Sithspecter's cross-dressing... pure pazaak.

TWINKEYRUNAWAY 08-20-2012 06:06 PM

Graphic enhancement of kotor...or enhancement of the gizka in kotor.

oh what can it be - oh what can it be
must know now- or im going to pee
riddle me this-riddle me that
can you give us an actual pic soon- or should I play pazaak?

Christos K 08-20-2012 06:39 PM

I got IT, Canderis and Sithspecter are going to take the superspecialawesome Cheese LMGs into their brand new Corvette while eating super coolio Star Wars cereal as they enter battle with a Jedi vs Sith Civil War, only to end it by killing and stuffing Jabba the Hutt.

Do you guys plan on doing something extreme like going into KotOR's hardcoded files? (Either game) Things like level caps and what not.

Kyr'am Galaar 08-20-2012 07:14 PM

You WILL reveal ALL your secrets to my soul-piercing eyes. These. Here. Now: ಠ_ಠ

Disturbed205 08-21-2012 12:13 AM

There's a gun, and the upside down triangle is pointing straight to the gizka, so I hope it's a gizka shooting turret minigame.

That would be awesome. I hate those things.

CptPriceless 08-21-2012 12:57 AM

You TEASE. This project's straight up pole-dancing with one of those loose but not loose enough uniforms.

Mandalore5 08-21-2012 09:45 AM

OK, after reading Zhaboka's observation and thinking further, multiple new planets are involved. I still think Tatooine is involved somewhere, and there is definite reference to ROTJ, so I can see it pointing to K1. Is any of this right?

VarsityPuppet 08-21-2012 01:57 PM

Sing me a theme song, oh joyous bard!

I wish... Maybe I should make that as a side project though

Darth InSidious 08-21-2012 02:29 PM

So, it's full of cheesy action, it involves a corvette, it's got plenty of cannon fodder to mow down, loads of lightsaber fighting, and Hutts.

So I think it's an OT-based project in the same vein a [MECK] was, many moons ago.

(Also, astronomy is a science, and your song-writing... needs work. :p )

Ah, of course astronomy is a science! The song never exactly says that it's not. And yeah, my songs aren't the greatest. But, they are going to get better!

After all this singing and songing I believe your song writing skills shall be quite impecable.

Quite fitting actually, as I just reread J.R.R. Tolkien's, The Hobbit, in anticipation of Peter Jackson's film release. :thmbup1:

:eek: EPIPHANY.. Perhaps this mod entails an, "Unexpected Journey!"

Buzz, I'm in aswell on this mod; though I'll refrain from singing. I don't want peoples ears to bleed. x-D

I'll just leave this picture:

We shall release one (1) screenshot on September 10, 2012.

And who let Quanon in on this?!? :confused:
Did you, Canderis? I'm really confused.

Canderis 08-22-2012 01:04 PM
