[K1] Exar Kun's Tomb

Well with Doom_Dealers new tutorial out, here's my stab at a new area.

http://www.pcgamemods.com/mod/6261.html

It's not finished yet, but I thought I'd give you a peek.
Don't go without your party members. It gets kinda hairy
Basically you meet Exar Kun's ghost and his minions in the ruins on Yavin IV. I haven't written the dialog yet for it, It's using the basic dialog from DD's tutorial. I won't release the robes in the screen shot for it until the new area is finished. Also I'll consider changing his appearance if there is a general consensus on what it should be(like say at least five people agree on a model). Keeping in mind it has to be a model that can equip a robe.

Edit:
It's finally finished! My first real mod

Update:
Slight tweak to robes.(nothing noticeable)
You can now skip through conversations.
Fixed moduel name in the area file, so savegames
now read "Tomb of Exar Kun"

From the Readme:

Quote:
---------------
Exar Kun's Tomb
---------------
This Mod Lets you visit Exar Kun's Tomb
on Yavin IV, where The ghost of Exar Kun
will try to seduce you to the darkside.

------------
Installation

Extract all the files in the modules folder to your 'modules' directory.

------
How-to
------
Travel to the Yavin spacestation. Upon returning to the Ebon Hawk you
will be presented with the option to travel to the ruins on Yavin IV.

or

Open console by pressing '~' and type "warp ekun".

-----
Notes
-----
To uninstall simply delete all the files extracted to your
Override/modules directory.

Thanks to:
Doom_Dealer for the New Area Creation tutorial.

What you got didn't take that long. The finished version was another matter. The most time consuming was putting together the scripts.
It took a coulple of days. It probably wouldn't of been that long if I actually knew the scripting language. I was going by trial and error. I'm Including the source files so hopefully they will help sombody else out.
Some of it is stuff all ready posted here and some I figured out on my own.
Let me know what you guys think about it.

OK I'll the new one a shot. I think I would like to enlist some help on a mod idea that has been burning inside ever since playing Kotor arena and Survival mods. They have some unlimted potential to be expanded on with all of the historic Dark Lords and Jedi Masters in the historical record. The matchup possibilities are countless. Exar Kun is a favorite.

Download Winrar. It's file compression software like Winzip.

http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar330.exe

Then you will be able to extract the files from the .rar archive.

You need to open the file with Winrar (link adove) and put the file in KOTOR\Modules folder

Well done deathdisco, for a gr8 module

and thanx Doom_dealer for giving a tutorial for area creation!! and i'm right in saying that " i'm Proud to Know Someone like you"

Well Done All!!


This is the Jedi Code a Supreme Jedi Master should follow:

There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no passion; there is serenity.
There is no death; there is the Force.

The .nss file is just the source to the .ncs file. You can delete it.

Unless you plan on modifying the scripts used in this mod, you do not need to extract anything in the nss folder.

Make sure you are extracting the files within the folders, not the folders themselves.

In your modules folder goes:

ekun.mod

In your override folder goes:

ekmod.ncs
ekun_armor.uti
g_i_mask25.uti
i_mask_025.mdl
i_mask_025.mdx
I_tetas_head3.tga
ia_revan_005.tga
ii_mask_025.tga
PMBJ05.tga
yavinarea.dlg
yavinarea.ncs
yavinarea.utd

I tried it out. That was awesome. When I saw Exar Kun I wanted to run. I couldn't get there without enabling cheats though. Glad I tried it out though. Exar Kun woulda kicked my butt. Thanks again deathdisco. See I got the name right.

Thanks for this mod. It was one of the first I ever installed, and was incredibly helpful in helping me learn how to make mods of my own.

I have written my own dialogue for the mod, with reactions from most of your party members, and would be glad to share it with your permission.
