The tools are surprisingly much easier to dink around with than any other editing tools I've ever used! However, I haven't really gone too far in-depth with them yet...
So, with that said... Allow myself to introduce..... myself...
I'm CeeKay, and I've been a KOTOR fan for all of 3 weeks now! I've beaten KOTOR I with a Sith character, and I'm working on a Jedi character. I've beaten KOTORII with a Sith character, and I'm working on a Cheater Jedi character (using cheats, experimentally)...
I have a HUGE project in mind (total rebuild), but I will need help, and lots of it.
Here's the synopsis of what I have so far...
Not sure of the plot or storyline, but I'm sure of some of the mods I wanna include...
This is all built on the KOTOR II engine, as IMO it was a finer-tuned version of the KOTOR I engine.
I want to build it so when you change the emitter on your Lightsaber, it changes the equipped model. I could also do a 3-style system that you could build at a workbench, so it would be like so:
Ultimate Fencing Emitter I
Ultimate Fencing Emitter II
Ultimate Fencing Emitter III
Also, I could tweak them to add teeny little buffs that won't be displayed in the describing text (adding a bit of mystery to it.
Also, I want to mix and match a few planets, and add a few...
I was thinking of running with:
Corruscant (It'll be the Peragus/Taris, but with less destruction and maybe re-visitable)
Tatooine (Mos Eisley instead of Anchorhead)
That planet that Cloud City was on...
The list needs to be gone through with a fine-tooth comb, but I don't even have a plot/storyline yet... I'm not the best writer, but I was thinking of a prequel to KOTOR I using a "Revan" character that wouldn't turn to "Darth Revan" until later in the game (Malak is too identifiable, what with his racing stripes on his head)...
Or, a sequel to KOTOR II that would follow the Exile
or the Exile's Force-sensitives from Onderon
going light/dark and rebuilding the Jedi/Sith, and your character learned from him/her and will either destroy the Sith/Jedi that the Exile
or force-sensitive from Onderon that was discussed above
created. (possible spoiler)
Those are two of my ideas for the storyline...
So, I'm going to need to remap (and build some from scratch), re-texture a few things, redesign ALL the characters and faces, design a gump that will let you edit hair color, piercings, scars, and other random aesthetics, etc... I'll have to re-record all the dialog and rewrite all the scripts. :\
The principles of the script and characters will all be the same as the other two games... A main character torn between good and evil, a pilot, two droids, some Jedi, a Mandalorian, a Wookiee, and one that's just SO ANNOYING YOU WANNA SHOOT THEM!!!
I'm also going to expand on the recognition between light side and dark side and male and female characters... (i.e. the dialogue that changes because you choose one sex or the other, or each allignment, etc...
Anyone got any good stories/fanfic? :P
All credits will be noted, and the whole game will be posted here as a few .iso files. It will be PC and English-version only, unless someone feels they wanna translate the whole thing...
Also, I'll need a good programmer. I don't know much about programming. :\
The remapping's hardest part will probably be modifying the maps... The addition of other worlds would be a simple replace-mod... Adding others would be a pain, but still not too terribly bad...
Welcome to CKOTOR! :P
So, what do ya think?
