Spacestation mod

Ever noticed how the galaxy map restricts how many planets you can add? If your an area modder you probably have. This mod is going to change that. It will add a new area you can go to (this will use the complicated way to add planets to the map to avoid compatibility issues). It will be a space station orbiting a planet. In the hanger bay there will be pilots who will take you to a new planet for a fee. There will be, included in the mod a way for modders can add a way to their planets. This mod is manly for Team Hssiss to add their areas and avoid compatibility issues. And now for everyone's favorite part.... Screenshots!

This mod will also be a platform for other mods we are planning on releasing, such as the Lost Ones by Yatsookey. We will include minor side-quests to also spice up this mod.

Will the station have BIK landing and take off movies?

The textures just look like desaturated versions of the originals... >_>
You might wanna work on that.

I think you could probably benefit from a new skybox too. Just a suggestion.

We'll probably add to the textures.

As for the skybox, that's new. However, the planet will be shrunk to be less pixilated.

NPCs will be introduced soon. It'll give the modules character.

Although I don't see a resemblance to Mannan's textures (then again, I haven't played the game in ages), I do see a slight seam in the floor texture. I know its not that big of a problem, but you told us to look hard at the screens.

Well then, your game is really messed up. They're just desaturated manann textures, as I just cheacked both KotOR and KotOR Tool.

You might want to redo your planet texture. There are a number of free ones around that are high enough res to look good in-game. Here is a sample of some that I've played around with in the past:



Sci-Fi 3D is a good place to start and you'll turn up others with a Google search.

They aren't, I should know, i made em, only the FLOOR is. And also i found new textures I am going to use.

And DP, the planet is a high def thing but the skybox stretched it a bit. But the ones you found are better.

Still looks like Manaan to me

Whatever or not re used Manaan textures, I'dd introduce some color back in.
Everything being grey is going to be rather boring looking.

I'dd look into where you could add some nice accents, by giving certain textures a fresh color. You don't need to step away from grey completely


Plus here's a cool link to a website with links on creating cool planets, starfields, nebulas.... etc for cool space scenes. ( full of cool today )

That'll save you the trouble from scavaveging others people low JPEG work, since its on the internet.

Creating planets in Photoshop/ Gimp is one of the easier things to do and its great fun !

I made this sky a week ago for a personal project, has a planet in it

I like the T-shaped pattern on the deck plates. Why not just create the deck plates using only that pattern instead of layering (Is that the right Photoshop terminology?) them on top of the original Manaan deck plates?

There appears to be some overlap on the texture on the bulkheads - the metal plates with the circles cut out of them. (See the edges of them on pictures 1 and 3.) I'm sure you'll get that adjusted though.

Last note: the symbol in the first picture - looks three claw marks through a cresent shape seems a bit off center. That might be intentional though as I haven't seen the symbol before.

Hmmm, I likeit. Loos less manann-ish. I suggust that you change the color of the floor to something more metallic. Looks too much like stone. Maby rusted/scuffed metal? That would be awsome.

@ Marius Fett: The sign in the second screenshot is a symbol Mandalorians use often.
But it may be Fett's personal symbol, as it's been spotted on Boba's shoulder plates.
@ Canderis: Looks like a pretty old station. Who built it?

I'm assuming he meant the backstory. I'm sure he knows full well that is Manaan, not a fully modeled area.

@taak: we are doing our best and expect to have some mods released soon

@canderis: i meant for those textures to be used for TLO's temple area but they seem to fit perfectly for the space station as well

and to all thanks for continuing to follow team hssiss's process it has been difficult considering how many mods we have been trying to work on at the same time and we are definatly hitting some roadblocks but you should expect many things from us to be released within the coming months


The balance is clear...the objective is not

Random thought, but rather than have a planet in the sky, how about something like a series of black holes or worm-holes instead? Physics aside (as to why the station is not sucked in by gravity, but that can easily be explained in-game) it would kind of enhance the idea that the space station can get you to faraway places.

@ xrefusex and DarthParametric: Thanks for the suggestions. Not that the skybox will be changed. We're not quite sure how yet but it will be changed.

@ TriggerGod: Correct. We're working on the backstory for this Station. I'm trying to also create some side-quests, and one of them may involve some gangs (like the Black Vulkars and Hidden Beks, but way more bad***.

@ Taak Farst: Thank you. We're rapidly gaining knowledge and experience.

That looks pretty good, nice idea!! I don't know how it works, but one thing I liked very much of the game was the Star Map. Is there any chance to create (maybe a bigger one) Star Map or a holographic Map with the location of the different worlds for you to select, then it opens the routine for landing to the selected world? Maybe it's a madness what I am saying.... Anyway, if there is going to be a control room, a holographic Map would be a nice detail.


What an amusing specimen of Jedi you are.
