The Redemption of Yuthura Ban

Finally!

The Redemption of Yuthura Ban -
A Recruitable Companion Mod for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic


Download it @ Filefront here. Thanks to Darth InSidious for the very nice review!

Edit:
Version 1.1 is available at Filefront. No drastic changes, just a few modifications to some of the robe skins and the addition of a Yuthura skin for Seprithro's Jedi Battle Armour. Note: The download link for the armour mod itself can be found at the end of this post. Highly recommended.

---------------------------------------

I started this mod three years ago after seeing T7nowhere's Yuthura sabers, and it's been pretty much done for all of that time. I just couldn't be bothered tackling stoffe's TSLPatcher for the first time (yeah, I'm lazy ).

About a month ago, I decided to polish it up and get it out the door. I went through a few more play-throughs just to make sure it was bug-free, and centenar was nice enough to playtest it for me. Thanks to him, a few more glitches and oversights were fixed.

Thanks again to T7nowhere for allowing his amazing saber models to be included. The originals can be found in his Weapons of the Old Republic mod, which is highly recommended.

New items included:

Yuthura's Resilience (Jedi lightsaber, violet blade)
Yuthura's Redemption (Former Sith lightsaber, reset with a green crystal)
Yuthura's Redemption Robes (uniquely skinned and upgradeable robes)
Yuthura's Gift (uniquely skinned robes for the PC. Also included is an alternate skin for use with PRIME and Xavier2's KOTOR Jedi Robe Model.)

Edit 12May2011:

New version (1.1) of the mod pending at Filefront. I added the updated skin for "Yuthura's Gift" as well as the Yuthura skin for "Seprithro's Jedi Battle Armor". I'll update the links above whenever the upload goes through.

Screenies:

Minor changes to "Yuthura's Gift". I wasn't particularly happy with the colour depth on the original, and I also changed the metal buckles to gold with a bit of an alpha channel.

Show spoiler



Seprithro's Jedi Battle Armor is one of his first mods, and can be hard to find. It's well worth the download though. Find it here.

For those who haven't seen it, here's a screenshot from starwarsknights.com:

Clicky!

Wow it looks really good! I've always entertained the idea of making Yuthura a party member

Hey Jimbo... far be it from a moron like me to question you but if you made the recruitment mod so that it's set before the redemption conversations, and then you made that her in-party chat and the ability to turn her either good or evil is the end of her 'quest' I dunno would that be possible? It might give her the same feeling the other party members have.

Well, here's the thing (I'm fairly sure everyone reading this has played through the game, but you never know ):

Show spoiler

Essentially, making her LS-only was a choice that I felt was in keeping with the existing game content.

Show spoiler
If it were done like that, she'd retain her DS appearance, and she'd come with her original T7 sabers rather than the reskinned green one. Maybe I'll add that option if and when I update the mod.

there must be a ds version of that mod, pleeeaaase!
or at least, maybe you can teach us how to do it? :}
oooor.... is there some cheat way to get her as companion?
i've played all korriban thru and at the end i've realised that i can't get her
that's just killing me, man :S btw i use yuthura to talon reskin, as the "dark" yuthura appearance, soooo... i guess it'll be awesome to have some "corruption of yuthura" you can tell her that nowadays sith's are lame and malak is weak so you should remove this pathetic "sith threat", and yuthura can be part of the new order, on the side of true strenght
i'm not some kickass moder but i can help you as much as possible, or someone can guide me and i'll try to do it all alone.

so?

i guess i'll try to merge this one with "yuthura to darth talon conversion". at first for personal use (cause i'm reeeeeeeeaaaly doubt i can make this to final stage), but if everything goes well, i'll be asking for permissions.

EVERYONE WHO ARE SURE IN HIS OR HER SKILLS AND INTERESTED, are welcome to do it before me! i'm kinda noob at that, all i did is some simple reskins.

I downloaded this mod recently and i think it is great other than there are some errors i have found. One of them is when she talks at certain times there is no voice. Also when you beat the game, sometimes it will turn her into wearing the Star Forge Robes. But shes better than juhani for sure. I especially like her lightsabers. I was wondering if a romance was included for her at all. Thanks.

@Latios6222:
Yeah, if she's speaking what are normally Juhani's lines, there won't be any VO. It's not a bug or an error - I chose not to add new voiceover for a few reasons:
1.) I don't know the voice actress personally
2.) I'm male, and couldn't be arsed trying to find a female who's a decent actress and willing to work on a mod for an 8 year-old game for free.
3.) Using a different voice would be (imo) a little jarring.

As far as the robe thing goes, I've never seen that before. I assume you mean in the cutscene at the temple?

@Shaggoth:
I haven't touched KotOR since finishing the mod, so it's unlikely that I'll revisit it just to add a DS recruit option. To be honest, I was on the fence about it anyway - the whole point is "redemption", not just "Yuthura replaces Juhani".

In order to add the option yourself, it would mostly be some minor scripting work, and maybe some DS reskinning if you were so inclined. A few changes to the post-fight dialogue ("Join me and we will overthrow Malak and rule the Galaxy together" or something equally Lucasian), and you're all set. All you'd need to do is add your recruit script to the end of that branch of the conversation.

As far as permissions go, I'd be ok with it if your mod was implemented as an add-on with a seamless install via TSLPatcher. As for bundling the whole thing together, I'd have to say no. What you're proposing is a fairly minor addition considering all the work that went into the original. Sorry.

If you wanted to do an add-on, you'd probably need to talk to T7nowhere about including his original Yuthura DS saber, since the green re-skin that I did wouldn't be appropriate for DS Yuthura. (I *think* he may have made his mods "public domain" (so to speak), but I'm not entirely sure.)

Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide. Everything you need is here - tutorials and tools. What I'd do is start a new playthrough with "Redemption" installed and save a few times right before the fight with Uthar. Use the mod manager to quickly enable/disable your mod during testing.

i cant get this mod to work i even deleted all my others to make sure nothing would be wrong. i put the mod in right when i got to korriban before i talked to yuthura but no matter how many times i do the light side she never comes with me. does the mod need to be put in before i get to korriban or before i talk to yuthura?

never mind about that last question i just did it over from the start with it in but it still doesn't work.

It's not a recruit mod, if you redeem her, she returns to the light, and you will see her at the Dantooine enclave before it's bombed (hint by the entrance you can use in TSL but is locked in K1).

To the folks that have played this mod: Does Yuthura Ban at least speak her new lines using the female Twi'leki (or Rylothean or Ryl, if you prefer) voice lines in the standard game? At least there would something to listen to - even if it isn't the original voice actress. (One would assume that Yuthura would be able to speak Twi'leki . . . )

@kirk1994: She doesn't come with you immediately after the fight on Korriban. You need to go back to Dantooine afterwards and speak with her there. As jonathan said, she's in the courtyard.

@Sith Holocron: No, other than a few lines that already had existing VO, she remains silent. It would've been easy enough to have her speaking Twi'leki, but I thought it'd be somewhat lame.


By the way, not sure what's going on at Filefront, but the new version of the mod which I uploaded in May never got posted.

If others agreed with me, would you reconsider?

Might I suggest Deadly Stream for your uploading needs?
