Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge
 
After many years of an almost constant development, I'm at last proud to present my greatest KoTOR Mod: Bikini Summer Par... I mean Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge!

For the time being, I have uploaded BoS:SR to a temporary host at megaupload until KOTORFiles is fixed. You can find the download link here.

You do NOT need to have the original BoS installed for BoS:SR to work. The original BoS is included within the BoS:SR package.

A collection of 70 BoS:SR release screenshots can be found on silveredge9.com. To go directly to them, click here.

For any moderators/administrators reading, could you please close both the [WIP] Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge thread in Holowan labs and the [KOTOR] Brotherhood of Shadow - Expansion Pack thread here in the Taris Upper City Emporium. I'd like to keep everything BoS related in this thread.

I'd also like to take a moment to announce my retirement from KoTOR modding. It's been a fun (and obsessive) hobby of mine over these past few years, but it's now time for me to move on. Though I'll still be supporting BoS:SR should the need for patches arise, and will be dropping in on Holowan Labs from time to time.

Feel free to discuss or post your BoS:SR impressions. Though please use the [HIDDEN] tags for spoilers so you don't ruin it for others!

I also strongly recommend that you read the read-me before installing or asking any questions in this thread. It's what it's there for.

And most importantly, enjoy the mod!

AUTHOR: Silveredge9
NAME: Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge
TYPE: Expansion Pack
VERSION: 1.0
SIZE: 645mb (ZIPPED) 1.4gb (UNZIPPED)
DATE RELEASED: 25/05/09
WEBSITE: www.silveredge9.com

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» DESCRIPTION
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon’s Revenge is a mod that provides a significant expansion of content to Bioware’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Boasting an epic storyline which encompasses new quests, new party members, new fully voiced characters, new items, and brand new areas, Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon’s Revenge adds many additional hours of gameplay to KoTOR.

Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon’s Revenge is split into multiple questlines, all of which can only be played after the Leviathan section of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has been completed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» MAIN QUESTS
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The quests which encompass the main storyline are as follows:

----------------------------------------------
» A FAVOUR FOR A RODIAN
----------------------------------------------
Drix Keliwt, the Rodian crew member of a ship named the Orion, is in need of your help. The newest and most ruthless of Exchange members Daemon Drexl is seeking to claim a mysterious merchandise, and you as Drix Keliwt’s representative, must ensure that never happens.

You can begin this quest by speaking with Drix Keliwt the Rodian, who can be found in the Dreshdae cantina on Korriban.

----------------------------------------------
» THE BROTHERHOOD OF SHADOW
----------------------------------------------
As the Orion’s last best hope, you must ensure the safe passage of the mysterious merchandise to the sanctuary of the Arroyo Sector, and not allow – under any circumstance – the ruthless Daemon Drexl to claim it for himself and his villainous criminal organisation the Exchange. On the way to Arroyo, you will face new foes, gain new allies, and relive your mysterious past as the Dark Lord of the Sith.

You can begin this quest by speaking with the Bith Ponda H'tiba in the Anchorhead Cantina on Tatooine after the quest "A Favour for a Rodian" has been completed.

----------------------------------------------
» THE BLACK ROBED MAN
----------------------------------------------
Travel with Shadow - Darth Revan’s personal assassin – as she investigates a great disturbance in the Force on Korriban. There you will uncover more of her mysterious past, including a fateful battle she fought at the Second Battle of Taris during the Mandalorian Wars.

The quest automatically begins when you enter the Ebon Hawk for the first time after the quest “The Brotherhood of Shadow” has been completed.

----------------------------------------------
» SOLOMON'S REVENGE
----------------------------------------------
Darius Solomon – the former Jedi Master of the mysterious Shadow, and a man thought dead in the Mandalorian Wars – has returned. Join Shadow as she journeys across the Korriban Wastes on a quest to confront the man who was once her mentor. On the way, you will encounter ancient evils, meet with new allies, and relive the epic finale of the Mandalorian Wars: the Battle of Malachor V.

You can begin this quest by speaking with Shadow after the quest “The Black Robed Man" has been completed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» SIDE QUESTS
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Side quests which not related to the main plot are also available for you to play through. They are as follows:

----------------------------------------------
» THE PROFESSIONAL
----------------------------------------------
Aid the Administrator of the Czerka Corporation Mining Facility as he attempts to restore Korriban’s Dreshdae colony to its former glories by assassinating the lives of those most responsible for its deterioration.

You can begin this quest by speaking with the Administrator after you have gained access to the Residential Level of the Mining Facility.

----------------------------------------------
» THE CAPTURED HUNTER
----------------------------------------------
Falsely accused of the murder of a Czerka employee, a Trandoshan bounty hunter has been imprisoned within Czerka Corporation’s Dreshdae Mining Facility. You must aid the captured Trandoshan by engineering his escape from his Force cage, and grant him the freedom that by all rights should be his already.

You can begin this quest by speaking with the Trandoshan prisoner in the Detention Room of the Czerka Corporation Mining Facility on Dreshdae.

----------------------------------------------
» SEARCHING FOR TRUTH
----------------------------------------------
Uncover the truth behind the mysterious incident which has quarantined the Residential Level from the rest of the Mining Facility, and allow the surviving Czerka Corporation miners to learn the fates of their fallen colleagues.

You can begin this quest by speaking with the Czerka Employee Berloc Lee on the Main Level of Czerka Corporation’s Dreshdae Mining Facility.

----------------------------------------------
» BACKWATER ENTERTAINMENT
----------------------------------------------
Aid the manager of Backwater Entertainment Nat Koh as he attempts to gain the favour of Czerka Corporation’s Dreshdae Leisure Officer in the hope that he will be granted the contract to provide entertainment for Dreshdae’s cantinas.

You can begin this quest by speaking with the Twi’lek Nat Koh in Mining Facility’s Employee Cantina.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» INSTALLATION
-----------------------------------------------------------------
There are 2 available methods of installing Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon’s Revenge. The standard installation method is done entirely though TSL Patcher, and doesn’t require you to do anything beyond simple button clicking. The manual installation is for those unable, for whatever reason, to use TSL Patcher, and involves the copying and pasting of files from folder to folder.

NOTE: With the standard installation method, BoS:SR is far more likely to work alongside any other mods you may currently have installed, which may not be the case should you use the manual installation method.

NOTE II: There is a save game included in the package for those unwilling to play through KoTOR yet wishing to play through the content added by BoS:SR. It is on the Ebon Hawk after the Leviathan section has been completed, and is automatically installed if you have chosen to use the standard installation method. The save game is named "BOS_SAVE".

NOTE III: If you currently have the original Brotherhood of Shadow installed and intend to use the standard installation method, you will need to do the following before you proceed:

1) Open up the Override folder located within your SWKoTOR directory.
2) Delete the file "global.jrl".

(Or if you have manually edited global.jrl to make it compatible with another mod which uses the file, open it up in K-GFF and delete the structs with the tags "drix_meeting", "ship", and "matilda".)

----------------------------------------------
» STANDARD INSTALLATION
----------------------------------------------
1) Double click BoSSR_1.0_install.exe.
2) Click the "Install Mod" button.
3) Sit back, relax, and wait for the installation to complete.

----------------------------------------------
» MANUAL INSTALLATION
----------------------------------------------
1) Open up the tslpatchdata folder.
2) Copy the files "msp_malachor.mp3" and "music_revan.mp3" and paste into the streammusic folder located in your SWKoTOR directory.
3) Copy all files with a .bik extension and paste into the movies folder located in your SWKoTOR directory.
4) Copy all files with a .mp3 extension (With exception to those listed in step2) and paste into the streamwaves folder located in your SWKoTOR directory.
5) Copy all files with a .wav extension and paste into the streamwaves folder located in your SWKoTOR directory.
6) Copy all files with a .mod extension and paste into the modules folder located in your SWKoTOR directory.
7) Copy everything else (With exception to nwnnsscomp.exe, nwscript.nss, GLOBALVARS.res, PARTYTABLE.res, SAVEGAME.sav, savenfo.res, and Screen.tga) and paste into the Override folder located in your SWKoTOR directory (If there isn't one, create one).
8) Open up the 2DAs & Journal folder.
9) Copy and paste its contents into the Override folder.

*Only repeat the following steps if you want to install the save game mentioned in NOTE II.

10) Open up the save folder and copy the "000376 - Game375" folder.
11) Open up the save folder in your SWKoTOR directory.
12) Paste the "000376 - Game375" folder.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» FAQ
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q - How long was Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge in development for?
A - Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge (As a whole, including the original BoS, which was released in its original form in September 2007) was in development from June 2006 to May 2009.

Q – Does BoS:SR replace the main storyline?
A – No, it does not. BoS:SR adds content on top of what is already in KOTOR.

Q – Do I need to have the original BoS installed to play this?
A – No, you do not. The original BoS is included in BoS:SR.

Q – When can I play through the content added by BoS:SR?
A – As soon as you complete the Leviathan section of the main game. Travel to Korriban and speak with the Rodian Drix Keliwt in the "Drunk Side" cantina.

Q – How can I attain the new items added by BoS:SR?
A – All are attainable at one point or another by simply playing the content added by BoS:SR.

Q – How difficult is the content added by BoS:SR?
A – The difficulty is comparable to the rest of the game. It isn’t too hard, yet it isn’t too easy.

Q – I have the mac version of KoTOR, will BoS:SR still work?
A – The short answer is no. This is because the mac version of KoTOR doesn't support custom modules of any kind.

Q - I currently have the original Brotherhood of Shadow installed, will this make a difference when I install BoS:SR?
A - Please read NOTE III under the INSTALLATION header for an answer to this question.

Q - I have found a bug, what do I do?
A - Firstly, replay the section in question a few times using an earlier save or autosave and see if the bug persists. If it still occurs, then we have a problem, and you should first read the section entitled KNOWN BUGS. If you cannot find the bug listed there, then you should read the section entitled BUG REPORTING to learn for to contact me.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» NEW EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a checklist for all equipable items added by BoS:SR. For plot reasons, a few items aren't featured in the list.

- Arkanian Utility Belt
- Czerka Miner Uniform
- Czerka Mining Band
- Czerka Muscle Suit
- Czerka Technician Uniform
- Daemon Drexl's Mask
- Darth Revan's Lightsaber
- Darth Revan's Mask
- Darth Revan's Robes
- Exchange Battle Armour
- Jedi Crusader Robe
- Jedi Seer Robe
- Kobayashi's Assault Rifle
- Kobayashi's Band
- Kobayashi's Exploration Garments
- Mandalore's Battle Armour
- Mandalore's Battle Axe
- Mandalore's Battle Axe
- Mandalore's Mask
- Mandalorian Crusader Armour
- Mandalorian Scout Armour
- Mandalorian Wars Robe (Black)
- Mandalorian Wars Robe (Blue)
- Mandalorian Wars Robe (Brown)
- Mandalorian Wars Robe (Red)
- Mandalorian Wars Robe (Yellow)
- Mec Han'ic's Stun Baton
- Replica Daemon Drexl Mask
- Replica Exchange Battle Armour
- Republic Commando Mask
- Shadow's Sith Uniform
- Sith Advisor Mask
- Sith Advisor Robe
- Sith Armour
- Telana's Robes
- Twi'lek Dancer Costume

-----------------------------------------------------------------
» KNOWN BUGS
-----------------------------------------------------------------
- When a female character equips Mandalore's Battle Armour, its appearance is identical to normal Heavy Battle Armour. This is because there is no female skin for that item, as it proved too difficult for me to replicate the male version to any degree of quality.

- If the player saves and then reloads whilst on Mandalore’s bridge, a strange bug can happen which removes Mandalore’s mask. This appears to be an issue with the engine itself, as I have encountered it in both K1 and K2. If you experience this bug, then my advice would be to load the autosave which was created when you entered Mandalore's bridge.

- There is a problem with the display of the minimap in the bos_sincan.mod module. Technically the issue shouldn't exist, yet it does regardless. This may or may not be fixed in future.

» COMPATIBILITY GUIDE FOR KOTOR MODDERS
-----------------------------------------------------------------
With a mod the size of BoS:SR, there is plenty of room for incompatibilities between BoS:SR and mods which both currently exist and have yet to be released. For the former, TSLPatcher should be the answer to the vast majority of these problems. For the latter, the following should provide all the necessary information to avoid any possible confliction with BoS:SR.

----------------------------------------------
» GENERAL CONFLICTIONS
----------------------------------------------
The best and easiest way to determine if a file conflicts with one of BoS:SR's files is to attempt to copy it into your Override folder after you have installed BoS:SR. Should you be asked to replace an existing file, then you have a confliction, and will need to make alterations.

----------------------------------------------
» GLOBALS
----------------------------------------------
Brotherhood of Shadow: Solomon's Revenge uses a number of numerics at various points during the mod. To avoid conflictions which would create major bugs in both BoS:SR and your own mod, do not use the following numerics:

- Tar_ZelkaRm
- TAR_CALOBARFIGHT
- Tar_Gelrood
- Tar_PazNik
- Tar_Christya
- Tar_YunGend

----------------------------------------------
» PARTY MEMBER SLOTS
----------------------------------------------
For BoS:SR to work correctly in conjunction with your own mod, you must not use the Bastila slot at any point following the Leviathan section of the game, as this slot is needed for the Shadow party member.

----------------------------------------------
» BIK MOVIES
----------------------------------------------
BoS:SR uses the live_11, live_12, live_13, and legal rows in movies.2DA.

----------------------------------------------
» MODULE NAMES
----------------------------------------------
For BoS:SR to work correctly in conjunction with your own mod, you must not use any within the following list as names for your custom modules/module reskins.

- m60aa
- m65aa
- m80aa
- m80ab
- m80ac
- m80az
- m82aa
- m82ab
- m82ac
- m82ad
- m82af
- m82ag
- m82ak
- m82ar
- m82as
- m82at
- m82ba
- m82bb
- m82bd
- m82be
- m82bf
- m82bh
- m82bi
- m82bj
- m82bk
- m82bm
- m95aa

----------------------------------------------
» FILENAME PREFIXES
----------------------------------------------
To avoid conflictions between filenames in the override folder, it is strongly recommended that you use filename prefixes for all your mod's files. For example PREFIX_filename.utc.

The most commonly added prefixes to BoS:SR's files are listed below. Do not use them as prefixes for your own files.

- bos
- cir
- cz1
- cz3
- cz4
- ebo
- exc
- msp
- orn
- rsp
- sg1
- sg2
- sg3
- sg4
- sg5
- swr
- tem
- tmp
- tun
- wst

----------------------------------------------
» GLOBAL.JRL TAGS
----------------------------------------------
To avoid conflictions between BoS:SR's .jrl file and your mods .jrl file, do not use any of the words listed below as tags.

- admin
- berloc
- blackrobed
- dance
- drix_meeting
- ship
- solomon
- trando

----------------------------------------------
» OVERRIDE SCRIPTS
----------------------------------------------
It may be necessary for you to use a script that is also used by BoS:SR. The most common example would be an existing KoTOR module onenter script such as k_pkor_33arenter or k_ptat17_enter.nss. To allow you to create scripts which are compatible with both BoS:SR and your own mod, I have included in this package the .NSS files for all of BoS:SR's scripts. Find them in the "source scripts" folder.

OMG! I am putting all my projects on hold now, I MUST play this!!!!!! Can't believe its finally out!

DarthNandis 05-25-2009 10:41 AM

OH MY GOD!
It's released! Downloading.

P.S.: I need BoS to it work?

EDIT: I will download later, 645.39 MB :P

EDIT²: I will download now :)

Silveredge9 05-25-2009 10:50 AM

You don't need the original BoS to play BoS:SR. The original BoS is included in the BoS:SR package.

DarthSion399 05-25-2009 11:32 AM

Awsome
Now I can play Kotor again
I've been waiting about three months trying not to pplay until this mod is realesed

Marius Fett 05-25-2009 11:34 AM

I was lucky enough to play this before the release, as I was a beta tester for it. It really is a superb mod, well worth the large download.

The new area models are extremely well modelled by Quanon, and Silver has produced a lot of professional looking reskins for both areas, items and characters. The voice cast are fantastic, and did their job very well indeed. the inclusion of VO's really does put this mod far ahead of the original.

The content is well implemented, and the dialog is well written and 'full', unlike the linear dialogs you'll get in most mods. I really do look forward to reviewing this when I upload it to KotORFiles.

Well done Silver! :D

sekan 05-25-2009 11:43 AM

Omg. It released on my birthday :D

Thanks for this lovlely present S9 :)

Downloadins now

DarthNandis 05-25-2009 11:46 AM

The download stopped at the middle <_<

I will download after school, btw :P

Canderis 05-25-2009 11:46 AM

Does this mod include a save right before the start point like the last one?

EDIT: 10 min till sweetness!

Queen of Night 05-25-2009 11:50 AM

Oh I downloadet this, the other BOS was very cool.

Silveredge9 05-25-2009 11:59 AM

I strongly recommend that you read the read-me before installing or asking any questions in this thread. Its what it's there for.

darth-me 05-25-2009 01:01 PM

Wow! It's actually out?!
Unfortunately, I recently played through both kotors, so I don't want to ruin the expierience by playing so soon afterwards. However, any bugs will hopefully be fixed by then, so it has good points!
On another note, it's sad to hear that you're leaving Silveredge. I've never had a chance to play BOS (I've been waiting for this to be realeased), but you're obviously one of the very top kotor modders around.
In the readme, it credits sithrevan for drath revan's robe. Does that mean you've got Revan's flowing robes in this mod?
Fantastic work completing such a huge project!

Demongo 05-25-2009 01:23 PM

Can't believe it's finally out! I will stop EVERY mod project just to play it! Even if it means downloading 645 Mb:p
Well done!:thmbup1:

EDIT: Yaaaaaaaaaaay downloaded!!!!:D

Chevron 7 locke 05-25-2009 01:25 PM

This looks amazing silveredge!

Daos300 05-25-2009 01:53 PM

Well I guess I know what I will be doing today. Playing through this long waited mod. :)

maugomale 05-25-2009 01:57 PM

Was randomly browsing through Lucasforums, saw the "Brotherhood of Shadow..." bit as the main topic in Taris Upper City and was like "It's probably the first one. I'd be a fool to think it's actually already out..."

Even so, I decided to check. When I saw the full topic title...

I'm gonna be honest with you...

I J***ED IN MY PANTS...

I'm off to download this beast. God, I can't believe it's actually out! Thanks for everything, Silveredge9!

EDIT: S9, do you foresee any compatibility problems with Shem's Super Enhanced Mod + Addon?

Lord of Hunger 05-25-2009 02:47 PM

Dear God...it's here!

Words cannot express how I feel right now. At last, the most professionally built mod for KOTOR1 is complete.

Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouth ankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!!!!!!

All hail Silveredge9! Here is a modder who not only creates an original idea for a mod, finishes the mod, and posts SEVEN patches to make it the best he can, he goes back to not only redo the mod but add a fully voiced sequel without bugs. Right now, Silveredge9, you are the greatest modder in KOTOR1.

And this is my talking when I haven't even played it. :D

It's very sad to see you go mate. If anything, I wish this would be the first in a long line of well-designed expansion mods (not necessarily related to the Brotherhood of Shadow) for both games, but you are probably exhausted from this great ordeal. I definitely hope to see you around occasionally (if not more frequently).

Again, thank you for this work of art.

Lord of Hunger

juansaman 05-25-2009 02:55 PM

Hohohohohoho!!!!! I've stoped all things for today just to try this so long waited mod! Thank you very much in advance for all the effort and work you've put on this, SIlver.
Downloading now!

Nope its not, your confusing mods here.

SithSpecter is working on a full animated robe model.
The robes included in BoS:SR are stiff as wooden plank :lol:

Anyway, just like Marius I was a lucky soul to play this as a beta.
I can tell you me and Marius found almost no bugs, it was pretty polished as a beta.

Though no doubt you people will find more conflicts and smaller faults :p

Well done Silver!

Jedi_Man 05-25-2009 03:27 PM

* Heavenly chorus sings in the background*
O...M...G...!!
I have played the original, and this is bound to be more awesome. I... We.... You... I can't... Find the words needed.

Qui-Gon Glenn 05-25-2009 03:29 PM

Fantastic!

This MegaUpload is MegaSlow :lol: but I am sure it will be worth the wait.

Congratulations on completing this enormous project! I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to make a small contribution, and am excited to see the fruits of your labors!

I now have a pleasant diversion from work that seems, hmmm, less pressing now.... :)

Well, the amount of polish and testing BoS:SR went through has definitely paid off. With the original BoS, I believe the first 1.01 patch went online within at the very most a day after release. :P

I loaded up the save that was supplied with the download but the Galaxy map didn't work.

TriggerGod 05-25-2009 03:53 PM

Wow. This project looks amazing. Believe me, if I had K1, I would play it with only this mod installed. Nothing else.

Could you be more specific? I just loaded up that save and the galaxy map worked perfectly. Though because it is a really old save, there are remnants of old mods which did alter the galaxy map (For example, rh's Ord Mandell mod, which because none of those files are included for obvious reasons, shows up as a white square.).

after I instllaed the mod with the installer I put the save in the Saves folder ( I must've missed the part were the readme said the save was automatically put in the saves folder) and when it asked to overwrite a said yes since it was a fresh install of Kotor and I knew that they were the same save.

Thanks

It works properly for me only one little "bug":D
There's a white thing in the upper-right corner in the galaxy map what takes you to the Ebon Hawk:D

DarthSion399 05-25-2009 04:06 PM

I had that white thonk but when I opened the Galaxy map there was no planets and the white thing was selected for me I clicked it and it made me exit the galaxy map

I just started the SR part and only one bug. If you equipped "shadow" with regular clothes she ends up wearing Bastila's underwear. The metal one. It is so small and so easily fixed I doubt it will even be necessary to release a patch

Yay, its finally out!! I've been keeping my eye on this for a i don't know how long! but im just happy its finally out yipee!!!

Good, timing, S9. Finals have just started, now I have something to do in that time. >.>

Seriously, congratulations on a job well done. I won't have any time to play this wonderful mod for some time, but it will be one of the first things I do when I have some time available, and I'm confident it delivers what everyone expected.

It also saddens me to see one of the most talented and skillful modders of our community leave the modding scene. What you have accomplished can only mean an inspiration for other modders. There can be no doubt you deserve the rest. :thumbsup:

I reinstalled the mod and loaded up the supplied save and had the same problem ( no planets on the galaxy map an a whit square on the bottom right hand corner.)

The Mods I have installed are:
Shem's Ultimate Sound mod
Shem's super Enhanced mod and the Add-on
Prequal sabers (modifies the color of the lightsaber blades)
Republic Helmet (gives you a rebublic soldier helmet and uniform)
Bastilla's extra dialouge on Tattooine
Carth's Republic Uniform

Have you tried installing the mod without any mods installed and then testing to see if the galaxy map works?

I tried that and it worked
Thanks

I'm currently on the Orion and the re-written dialouge is awsome.
What one of the mods I had installed could have caused the problem

I want to first say thank you for not only creating an amazing Mod but also inspiring other modders to push the limits in them when it comes to modding. You have pushed me in my mod by showing it was possible to create a compelling story and characters that you can care about.

I have to say if it was not for the BOS mod I probably would not have taken the jump into Revenge of Revan. You showed it can be achieved and with professionalism.

I wish you would not give up modding but I also know that you have given so much to the community and that its time for you to get some rest.

Thank you,

Logan

I'm having a slight issue. For some reason my save is acting as if I've never originally did BoS, and Matilda(I think thats her name) is acting as if she's Bastila. She had a conversation with another character as Bastila when I exited the ship.

Is having a save AFTER I've completed BoS causing the problem, and do I need to replay the entire BoS, do all the flashback memories, then leave/exit the ship?

edit: My save is right after doing all the flashback memories and standing in front of Matilda by the way.

You do need to re-do everything because it is basically a new mod.
On another note aside from the clothing thing I have not found any other bugs however I am stuck on

Alright, so after I've redone everything again and re-enter the ebon hawk I'm good?

Thanks for the reply by the way.

I can't believe my luck... After losing track of this mod a few months ago, I randomly looked for it today and see it was released yesterday. YAY!
Same thing happened with Third Age for M2TW... The force is strong with me indeed. :D
I am downloading right now, so I can only judge from trailers so far.
But what I have seen and heard in those is awesome. :thmbup1:
I loved playing the original BoS and I am shure this addon (the term 'mod' seems insufficient) is kicking holy-crapness to an even higher level.
Thanks for all you have done for the KOTOR comunity.
May anything you do in future times go (or, at least, end) as well as this mod.
