How would you mod it?
 
Depending on the capabilities that they give us to mod TFU4PC (if any), how would you mod it?
Don't think about any limits right now, just let the ideas run wild.
I would add General Grievous to the game:D

Demongo 07-30-2009 05:46 AM

Let the ideas run wild? You asked for it:D
I would add Grievous too, with 4 sabers and the same Force Powers what Starkiller has. I would also add these Characters from KotOR: Nihilus,Sion,Revan,Bastilla. And Urai Fen FoC. He doesn't have a saber but with Force Powers he would be unstoppable:D Okay what else. (Here comes the craziest idea) I would add some kind of "NPC spawn" system like in JA:D It would be really fun if you could just choose a map spawn a bunch of enemies and own them:D

SW01 07-30-2009 06:43 AM

- Make Vader playable for the rest of the game
- Add new hilts - lots of 'em
- Different (normal) lightsabre stances
- New sabre colours
- Increase Boss and enemy stats
- New skins/models - Roan Fel, Wilhuff Tarkin, Thrawn, etc.
- New clothing for 'Starkiller' - like an Imperial Knight uniform. And an Imperial Navy uniform. Maybe the Sith Master armour thing from KotOR.

That should do for starters! :lol:

I'd want to see lightsaber dismemberment implemented, if possible. Not the bloody type, but the in-universe type, i.e. seared, cauterized wounds.

I'd also like to see the fight with Kazdan Paratus resemble how it is described in the novel, if that is possible: make the Jedi Council "junk dummies" come to life and attack the player. On top of that, I would like to see Anakin Skywalker and Oni-Wan Kenobi added to the roster, as they are described as being included among the attackers that Galen must fight off in the novel.

Another thing I'd like to see would be for the fight with PROXY on Raxum Prime be rewritten so as to resemble the encounter in the novel: PROXY is possessed by the mechanized planet's collective consciousness, or the "core" as it's called. His eyes are red, his voice is deeper, and he speaks of power and destruction (I can't remember how the conversation went, but consult the book for details). I'd like for his "disguises" to include Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, as we read in the novel (I think he may have morphed into Mace Windu as well, but I can't quite remember for certain).

It would be neat if a thick cable attached to his back can be included as well (which Galen had to sever in order to free him), but that may be a little over-the-top and hard to do. It would probably look a bit silly as well, especially when PROXY morphs into the forms of other Force-wielders.

WraithPrince 07-30-2009 02:58 PM

Add a actrualy god mode cheat (this would have helped making finding the holocrons less of a chore)

increase the intelligence of the AI

Do a Starkiller must die difficulty mode where almost everything is lethal ae instead of taking like 10-30 shots you'd only take like maybe 5 and sabers kill you in 2-3 hits :p

Trench 07-30-2009 03:36 PM

What if we could add new maps?
I would add a Coruscant map, where you can explore the city itself. Jump from platforms, lurk through the under-levels. Pure awesome.

I think there is already a Coruscant map in the Ultimate Sith Edition but not sure. If we could map for TFU, I would put in Mandalore without a doubt:D

WraithPrince 07-30-2009 04:43 PM

That was the jedi temple it was dlc before sith edition.

Korriban may be number 1 on any list of desired new maps. After that...a Star Destroyer (to run around in, as you say. Maybe fight off some rebel scum! :lol:) Bastion? Yavin IV would be a nice change of scenery; a proper Coruscant (as you say)...

Trench 07-30-2009 06:57 PM

How about: Nar Shaddaa (better than the in-game level), Nal Hutta, Tatooine, Manaan, Naboo, Malachor V (you know you want it:p)... So many possibilities.

Demongo 07-30-2009 08:04 PM

Just check the map list at Wookiepedia:xp::D

Wasn't that supposed to be Bespin? See the confusion created when developers rush through stories...

But yes, Nar Shaddaa would be good too.

All good as well! Except for the canon problems of Malachor having been destroyed and that.

Alderaan deserves a look-in, seeing it has been so badly underused.

Rabish Bini 07-31-2009 08:46 AM

Convert the whole game into an original KotOR III game.

You said let your imagination run wild :D

WraithPrince 07-31-2009 10:19 AM

SW01 the wii and ps2 versions got nar shadaa instead of bespin for finding kota and got bespin for finding another senator right before the DS to add more levels.

JKAMaster 08-13-2009 04:07 AM

I would add characters like Luke, Leia, Han, Vader, etc for the player. Some soundpacks for each character. Then I would focus on making levels and worlds.

New maps you say....well Dagobah comes to my mind. There 's nothing like running through the jungle and shooting anything that moves to sharpen your senses.

Hmmm, the Dxun Moon and the Endor Moon would be good maps to make as well...now that I think about it.

Well, let's just hope we can mod the hell out of TFU when it does finally arrive for the PC.

jrrtoken 08-15-2009 09:31 AM

I'd remove/tone-down almost all Force powers, so that using your lightsaber would actually be necessary rather than simply throwing crap around.

I'd remove all of those banal QTEs, and I'd probably remove/alter most of the horribly-written parts (Romance :hor:)

Greatly increase difficulty, while modifying the levels to promote more non-linear gameplay.

Altogether, though, this is simply a pipe dream, with absolutely zero to 25% chance of coming to fruition. :(

Ah right - thanks!

That was an even more baffling move - messing about with diferent levels between games...

I agree completely with the idea of toning down the force powers (even though it's called 'Force Unleashed', PastramiX is right - sabre was almost unnecessary).

And Leia and Vader at least might be remotely possible - Luke too, with this Hoth thing (assuming it's going to be possible to access the game's model files...)

WraithPrince 08-15-2009 11:07 AM

The saber was only necessary on enemys that force can't effect like dark troopers and those.. stormtroopers with forcefields, but even then all you would do was spam the lightning saber thing.

Neon 08-15-2009 11:58 AM

I would start a team, or join an existing one, to make an online mp version of it, basicly like Jedi Knight, choose your player model, your force powers, your lightsaber and your saber style.

JKAMaster 08-15-2009 07:06 PM

I disagree about toning down the force. I love the power this guy has in the game. It doesn't keep me from using the saber either, in fact I think the saber moves and combos are the best part of it.

Gamma097 09-20-2009 12:12 AM

I was somewhat disappointed at the PS2 version of the game. If SWTFU4PC is a similar disappointment, I'd try (and probably fail; skinning is all I'm good at.) to make it like the 360/PS3 version and probably reskin all the skins that I think don't match up with SW canon. (Again, skinning is all I'm good at.)

Darth Darkus 10-01-2009 05:49 AM

more planets and missions would be gr8! I haven't played the game before but I heard it's only about 9 hours of playtime... so more planets and missions would be the best thing to mod imo...

logan23 10-05-2009 10:09 PM

Hey,

There are a few ideas running through my mind.

It comes down to how much modding could be done to the game.

One is the idea of a Mandalorian Wars Chapter: A recount of a Jedi sneaking through the Manadlorian lines and must face the dangers alone with the Force.

Another for the Dark side person a Chapter in the hunt to kill the Jedi. This would be during the Jedi Purge between kotor1 and kotor2. You are a Jedi who was also influenced by Malachor V and you are sent to hunt down the last of the Order as they start to hide from the new Sith threat.

Another is another chapter in Starkiller's time and history.

Then there is always the forgotten records of the Jedi Exile and Revan. You play as them in the unknown regions facing the Sith Empire through records of their battles found in holocron chapters.

There are many more ideas but all would be geared to an action adventure based on the design of the force unleashes game mechanics and layout in showing a action game experience.

But first can it be modded? Has anyone been able to mod the Xbox 360 version with a modded xbox??

Its going to be fun to see what can be done.:)

Logan

Omeganian 10-06-2009 01:24 AM

A new Dark Forces Mod (along with the JK sequels)?

Zwier Zak 10-07-2009 04:30 PM

How would you make a DF mod if the only weapon in the game is a lightsaber?::

Demongo 11-05-2009 01:50 PM

Gentlemen, I am proud to present(or at least show because it is not mine:p) The very first mod:D

Kurgan 11-05-2009 11:07 PM

Congrats to this brave pioneer!

Dismemberment is key for me... I loath the "batsaber" in this game. And a little blood spray wouldn't hurt either (just a fine red mist like in Episode I).

It'd probably be next to impossible, but even a basic Multiplayer mode like the Wii version had, would greatly improve the replay value of this game.


PS: It'd be cool if somebody modified the "force burst" attack to make it red, so it'd look like Force Destruction. ;)

Zwier Zak 11-06-2009 06:24 AM

What we need is a way to open the resource files. If it can't be done there will be no real mods.

JKAMaster 11-06-2009 06:45 AM

We need to email lucasarts and request it.

Zwier Zak 11-06-2009 07:20 AM

I don't think they'll do that.

Still the texmod gives us some possibilities. I'd like to turn of those horrible green dot's. And if the black color is transparent I think I can pull that of.

onikrulz 11-13-2009 10:05 AM

Dismemberment = +1 from me. I miss Jedi Outcast. I hope LucasArts checks through this thread and helps the modding. After all, PC version backed up by a modding community makes a game long-lasting and replayable.

WraithPrince 11-13-2009 10:10 AM

Well atleast we can get something close to Revan with a Sith robe Reskin maybe.

Luxian 12-07-2009 08:45 AM

so.. how did you do it? ;)

Psyk0Sith 12-07-2009 06:22 PM

+1 for Dismemberment & blood.

jedimike2234 12-07-2009 07:05 PM

Would love to see the stances change, if you change to a different costume,say darth maul and be able to use the double saber,it kinda kills it to see maul, luke or all the rest use starkillers stance and blade behind his back.
With the dismemberment,if you see ,starkiller can cut the gonk droids in half and the edges are white hot ,and those sarlac hairs also cut,so its in there as it applies to droids and certain things but not to npcs or anything else,i guess if it was modable it would be to change those values to affect everything else?

WraithPrince 12-07-2009 08:49 PM

^ I think thats kinda of like a thing build into the bones for the droids like in jka you were able to cut the head off of a r2 unit with dismemberment off.

LordSerion 12-27-2009 06:18 PM

- First of all, I'd get rid of that annoying Star Destroyer scene (PC version, of course). I'd add a script asking 'Do you want to do the sequence manually or skip it?' If you choose no, you'd jump to the cutscene. I mean, seriously, it has taken an hour from me and I'm still stuck. Not funny. -_-

- Dismemberment.

- Force Lightning from the beginning. It's too much fun to use, I don't want to wait till the third level.

DarthSlinky 12-30-2009 10:36 AM

Let your ideas run wild? OK

Dismemberment, Episode 1 style blood
Customizable stances
JA/JO style multi player
A single player KOTOR
The ability to add custom models, maps, everything
Replace most of the music original John Williams music
Make it harder
but unless a miracle occurs and LucasArts blesses us with tools to mod it, nothing like this can every happen.

mrgreene32 07-24-2010 12:31 PM

Who would i want to fight...Shatner.

Seriously, I wanna see him fight Darth Bane, Luke, Yoda, and the Emperor.
