F-Grade WIPs: Feats, Remixes and More

Below is a list of the K1 projects my associate UnknownJedi and I have been working on in the recent past, and what we have in the works at the moment.


Content Pack 1

15 feats, in seperate 9 feat chains.
2 new force powers, in a single chain.
Edits some party members to include the new feats.

Status: Released.
Thread: Here.

Content Pack 2

Even more feats and powers.

Status: Concepting.
Download: Not yet.


Weapon Remix Redux

A complete rewrite and rebalance of all weapons in the game.

Status: Complete.
Download: Will be released alongside Realistic Drops.


Armour Remix

A complete rewrite and rebalance of all armours in the game.

Status: 50% complete.
Download: Not yet.


Supply And Demand

A remake of the merchant system to include licences, black markets, restocking, and a overhaul of merchants' inventories.

Status: Programmed but not yet implemented.
Download: Not yet.


Realistic Drops

A comprehensive and consistent drop system whereby all enemy equipment can be salavaged. Also includes more realistic loot within containers.

Status: Implemented up to the end of Taris.
Download: Not yet.


I'll be editing the list to keep it up-to-date in the future.

This looks really cool but I do have a question. As far as I know making new feats is impossible because last I heard it's Hard Coded. I have a mod I'm working on which I could make good use of new feats, so my question is how are you doing this?

Hey there TamerBill!

I remember some debate about the usefulness of scripted "feats". I wonder how you have scripted this, and how well tested it is in a heavily populated battle on a low-spec'd machine?

It does sound cool though, and I hope it works well... I may give it a fly.

I am very interested in these WIPs. They all sound well thought out. I hope the final releases are as nice as the WIPs sound.

No one's made one, but the idea has been floating around for awhile. The main issue stopping people is the major compatibility issues.

With compatibility issues aside, how would I go about making such a feat?

Most of them are actually hooked onto existing scripts, so there shouldn't be any noticeable slowdown. They're not done as onHeartbeats or anything; that would be woefully inefficient.

That's the party line, true, but it's only a half-truth. The combat styles, like Power Blast and Flurry, are very much hard-coded, there's nothing we can do there. Everything else, though, is just a matter of calling it from the right script.

Well I do want to several passive feats that boost several areas ranging from attributes to skills to Attack modifers to Damage to Attacks per round to damage to dark siders and dark sided creatures and there is plenty of ideas I want to implement as passive feats.

I'm interested in seeing how you implemented the new feats then.

Update:

Since the download link was being screwy for some, I've replaced it. Should work better now. Since some people didn't realise there was a download link, it's now highlighted in red.

Progress on the other components continues; once I've finished the last of the armours I'll release all the components up to the end of Taris as a taster.

"File not found."

So much for a non-screwy download link.



Thank you Gorgod.

The file's been removed from MegaUpload due to time limitations. Since it's had long enough in beta I've begun the process of release. A new thread with the release version will be up presently.

that is good because i want to review your work on Feats, TamerBill. I did look around a lot on KotorTool. I do have ideas. Ranging from Martial arts passives, to lightsaber passive to compliment how you fight. Double lightsaber defense: it does allow for Assured Hits while having good force resistance and damage reduction.

Okay, all discussion of Content Pack 1 can now move over to the release thread, found here. Next under development is a combo of Weapon Remix Redux, Armour Remix, Realistic Drops and Supply & Demand up to the end of Taris. Stay tuned.

Been playing your content pack 1 and I think its really great putting out more options for non-force users.

Since you're still conceptualizing content pack 2, may I suggest you give more melee feats/talents for single wielders? of both advanced melee and lightsabers. Right now dual wielding in my assessment is the optimum build, perhaps you can bring in feats to balance it.

In Saga Edition, the rulebooks force a dualwielder to take more talents to dual wielding thereby forgoing certain nifty talents/feats. Perhaps in your conceptualization, you can provide such options.

By the way, thanks for the content pack 1.
