Current Game: KOTOR I (BoH)
Exclamation Characters Of The Old Republic (COTOR)


PROJECT IS NOW RECRUITING MEMBERS!
NEEDED: Scripters, mappers/module editors, and more scripters and mappers!
CURRENT TEAM MEMBERS:
Creator: DarthDementous
Lead Scripter: None
Secondary Scripter: None
Mapper: None
Testers: None
RELEASE DATE:
April, 2009 (Goal)
PROGRESS:
Quests: 70%
NPC's: 80%
Sin (New Party Member): 90%
Reaver (Sasha replacement): 90%
This data is subject to change, of course.

___________________________________________
What is COTOR?
COTOR (Characters of the Old Republic) is an expansion pack for KOTOR 1. It focuses on what makes KOTOR great: the characters. Who needs new armor and weapons? Really, they're not important; CHARACTERS are! This expansion will add many new characters to the planets of the galaxy. You'll even get a new party member, if you choose to do so (replaces T3-M4). This new character will, of course, have her own sidequests, past, personality, and sense of humor--What's not to like?
What kind of characters will be added to the game?
Many different characters will be added such as bounty hunters who will send you on challenging missions, a replacement character for Sasha the stoweaway (he's probably the most hilarious character in the game, writing his dialog is just a blast!). Zaalbar's dialog is getting a huge upgrade, too. Many of you noticed that Zaalbar had relatively weak and short dialog. I intend to change this. I'll be adding more dialog for Zaalbar, new discussions, and maybe even a new side-quest. More characters are on the way!
So...this just adds new characters?
No. More features will be added including a 'Dynamic Conversation' system, which I will go into more detail later on, interaction commands (Split into 2 sections: Flirt and Insult). There will also be new bounty hunter weapons: The Tranquilizer Rifle, the Poison Dart Pistol, Holo-Guise (stealth-improving armor meant) and the Bio-Cannon (an anti-midichlorean rifle that renders targets almost useless and dead with one shot--But it won't kill them as well as it weakens their powers, however.). Also, more items will be added to the game such as Death Sticks (mentioned in Star Wars Episode 2; the SW equivalent of cigars), and more to come!
Just what is a Dynamic Conversation System?

It's a fancy name for something a bit less complex. COTOR characters will talk to you about your actions, whether they're apposed to them or in favor of them. You'll find that when you read a character's opinion of what you do in the game, you'll actually get to know them better. That is the goal of this mod: to make characters more likable.
Work-In-Progress Screenshots:


OPEN BETA - DOWNLOAD IT NOW
I've decided to release a beta because I lack the time to test every bit of my mod. Also, I'm posting this JUST in case my computer dies or other technical issues surface. Anyway, please, after playing the Beta tell me if you run in to any glitches or the like.
I've started another project, but it's top-secret for now. All I'll say is it's a KOTOR 1 mod and it's a full planet. That's all I'm saying.


This mod is a tribute to SithRevan and his impact on this community as a whole. I've named the main bounty hunter (who is not hostile) Cyth Revoln. I intended to make this just an easter-egg kind of thing for people to find out, but I've decided to reveal it now. There will also be other references to a character named 'SithRevan' throughout the mod's dialog.

Wow, this has piqued my interest now I'm regretting not getting my comp fixed I like the idea of having more dialog for Zaalbar, and I like the flirt or insult concept, which sort of reminds me of Fable

I like the inclusion of the Iridorian to the party (i've always liked his armor and badassness from the first game ). Also the female Twilek seems interesting.

Woah!! DD, I was worried. How've you been?

Deleted all off topic and general 'chat' type posts that happened after this one... Holowan Labs is not a place to "shoot the breeze" this thread is for discussing this topic, nothing else. If you want to 'chat' with each other there are other ways to do so, IM, Skype, PM's, etc.

If I have to do this again here I will hand out spam infractions. Sorry folks. -RH

Wait, so I understand everything except one little thing. Will you be able to flirt/insult/dynamic conversation everybody or just major characters and party members? Since it would be cool if you did it to everyone, but I can understand why if you didn't.

At the moment, those options are only available for characters I've added. Zaalbar, at the moment, can not be flirted with or insulted. Making everyone have those options would require me to edit almost every dialog file in the game. It would be cool, though.

This is a pretty cool mod, I have to say. DD, mind sharing the method you are replacing T3 with?


As of 3/14/10, TSL is restored. The Sith Lords Restored Content Modification by Stoney and Zbyl has been finished and can be downloaded here.

I like what you've got so far though sometimes it may be a bit "mature" like you say... Anyway, you don't get to see anything, luckily.

I love how you put Serj and Daron in it, maybe you could do something with Shavo and John as well.

Are you going to use TSLpatcher? I hope so, it should be compatible with most mods .

Also, the dialogue you used from BoS, did you get permission to use it? Just wanted to ask before it's too late.

Yes, I did have permission to use some content from BoS, but of course this is mainly just to make it compatible with it.

everything goes in the Override folder. You'll have to start a new game. You'll come across the characters while you explore each planet.

Are you able to do an Armor retexture mod?

It's in the Mod Requests forum.

http://www.lucasforums.com/showthrea...30#post2609330

This is probably going off topic, but it can be incorporated into this mod if you want. You can make the Jedi mentioned one of your chars.

I haven't even got that far. I'm having trouble getting through Endar Spire with it crashing.
