Enhanced Lightning

Enhanced as in texture, that is!

High-Resolution Lightning
**********
A MOD FOR SWKOTOR2: TSL
BY TRIGGERGOD

**********

Contact me:
Email:
PM at LucasForums.com. Username is TriggerGod.

Information: While playing through TSL, I noticed how low-res some of the textures looked. I thought to myself "Well, I can make some of these textures better!" And so I did. I retextured the Lightning to be more high-quality.
When I finished making the lightning texture, I saw how bad the conjure texture looked next to it. Someday, I might end up retexturing that. But for now, I just plain got rid of it.

Credits:
Fred Tetra, for his amazing Kotor Tool

Installation:
Place the files into your Override folder. If you don't have an override folder, make one or update your game.

Uninstallation:
Remove files from your override folder. If you don't know how to do this, I reccommend you learn how to use the computer more.

If you want to use this mod in your own mod, contact me. I don't care how, I check messages and email regularly.

Legalese:
this mod isn't endorsed, sponsered, created, or any other big words i don't fully comprehend yet by LucasArts, Obsidian Entertainment, Bioware, or any other company in the world you can think of.

Mirror 1 (Mediafire)


Mirror 2 (Megaupload)

KFiles Link (will update when its uploaded)

NOTE: If you want to use this mod for K1, you don't have to change anything. Just drop the files into your override folder as if for TSL. Thanks to Kaall for testing this!

And here I was thinking that the force powers used models, and thus not much could be done with the textures. I did something similar with Force Drain, and surprisingly, It worked(though I did make the new texture after I saw this). Doesn't look to bad either.

Though if you wanted a "black" Force Lightning(with the black core and white glow), is that possible? I tried just having "Decal 1" in the txi, but the black core was still transparent.

I love this mod. Permanent edition to my Override folder. But quick question. Would it be a simple matter of renaming the textures to get this mod to work with KOTOR 1?

Both games use the same texture for the "electric" force powers, so you wouldn't even have to rename it.

If you wanted black lightning, you'd have to make your own alpha channel. Decal 1 makes all black in the texture transparent, so if you had a black core, it would make that transparent.

OMG this is purely awesome, it just looks like true lightning.

Definitly a must.



That was... a most delightful scream. I was enthralled by it. Nothing is more beautiful than a scream of death.

I just Checked using it into K1 and it works, so unless it is said somewhere you cannot do that, i guess you can go for it.

Its a completely custom texture, so there should be no problems.

Maybe if a mod could change the prefix from TSL to KOTOR/TSL..

I just tried, and its rather slow, and it seems to be stuck at the "Processing Download request" box.

Well, I just uploaded it to megaupload. It should work here.

Also, edited in Megaupload link to the first post.

Since it seems like my emails didn't go through properly to you people at kfiles (I accidentally sent one without the files attached... >.>), I'll just go through the usual submission.

Check your PM's -- j7

Cool Guy Hmm...

Looks like this is also applying to darkside power Force Chain Lighting of HIGH LEVEL FORCE POWERS mod, or it's just me in need of a brand new pair of glasses?

Well I'm certain that Chain Lightning used the original lightning texture, so it would've made that look hi res and awesome as well.

I would love to see a screen of it in action, as my TSL doesn't really work that much right now...
