Those look really nice. I've always liked the Mandalorian logo.

Wasn't the usage of the Star Forge symbol deliberate? I thought Ordo used them to honour the memory of Revan and his journey with him.

You seriously believe that isn't a retcon in the EU to explain Obsidian being rushed and not placing a Mandalorian logo on the banners? It makes absolutely no sense for the Mandalorians to adopt the Star Forge as a symbol, nor do I see how the symbol honours Revan (if as canon would force, he blew the thing up?).

Yes, I seriously believe that. Haven't you ever heard of warriors claiming the symbols of their defeated enemies as their own? And regarding Revan, the symbol is a shared experience and so it does make sense for them to have adopted it.

Ha! If that had been the intended reason for the Symbol being in game it would have been explained in KotOR 2, given the not finished and un-polished nature of the game I'm highly sceptical. and think the more logical explanation is that it is explained after and as sucj it's clearly a ret-con, whether you want to believe that or not...

If you want the original Star Forge Banners don't download the modification, so unless you have a technical criticism, I can only request that you don't clutter up my release thread with superfluous nonsense arguing for the Star Forge banners with those of us who don't think it makes any sense...

Heh, no need to get snippy. I think I might download the mod and try it out. And as for cluttering the thread, it's hardly overflowing with posts, now is it?

It's more a snippyness over KotOR (and TSL) having been utterly crapped all over (at least in my opinion) since, by the comics etc, Though bare in mind I only made it as it's something that irritated me...

No, but Holowan is a lot less busy these days, and it's hardly either a massive or earth shattering mod

Been looking for this mod for a while... don't know if it's a re-release or what.. but Hooray!


Though ARC Cody does bring up a good point... even though it does sound like a terrible retcon .
