Newbiemodder's Mods - TSL
 
Hello again.

Have a couple mods that am in the process of working on. Both are in the early stages, but since things have been kind of slow around here latel so I decided to put these out there.

I. Korriban Expansion Part II

For those who were kind enough to play my first mod, I thank you. This will be a little add-on to the first, not as extensive but will continue the story of Darth Poxus and his new apprentice...hopefully bring it to some kind of conclusion. He'll be seeking his revenge with the help of his new apprentice from the Kolto tank.

Here some screenies..

II. For lack of a better title...Return of Yuthura

This one will be a little more extensive. Going with the assumption that Yuthura Ban was redeemed in K1 and had already left Dantooine prior to its attack by Malak. Not sure if Yuthara's redemption is canon, but she is an interesting character whom I think people would like to see again. You will assist her as she completes her quest and battles the forces of the Dark Side.

Most of the story will allow us to further explore Onderon...get us out of the city of Iziz. The Beast Riders will be more involved during the quest as will a couple of other new characters.

As far a modules...mostly reskins, as well as at least one of Quanon's modules that he release...I will reskin that as well, and one of my own.

Screenies..

Yuthara has just a basic robe on here...but I plan to change that to something more unique.

That's all for now. Pretty vague I know, but more will come. Might not be for a while until I get some serious work done.

Phildevil 03-08-2011 08:57 PM

Glad someone's going to use the modules made by Quanon... it would be sad that they got wasted.

Salzella 03-09-2011 05:16 PM

lol 'newbie' modder. looking nice :D

Qui-Gon Glenn 03-09-2011 09:58 PM

Yeah.... not really a newbie by a long shot!!! You could ask stoffe to change your name to 'accomplishedmodder' or 'goodmodder' or just 'modder'.

Of course, that might put pressure on ya... a newbie's timeframe is more relaxed :)

Zhaboka 03-11-2011 12:11 AM

I'm excited! Every Yuthura mod I've seen has been underdeveloped, I'm glad you're bringin' something new to the table.

Viado Onasi 03-20-2011 02:53 AM

Great work on The Korriban mod! It was really fun, just need to it up.

Some tips/suggestions to improve it though. You could *POSSIBLE SPOILERS*

If you need any help on these, just ask me! (no moddeling or hex editing though, please.)

Just a little update. Here are a few pics of my new Onderon module. It's a reskin. This will be just another part of the city of Iziz to explore. Currently in the process of filling with characters, dialogs, etc.

Wonder if anyone would be interested in doing a store/merchant for me. You know coming up with the dialog, the goods, etc....I can do it, but just looking for a little time saver. PM me if you are interested. Thx

Slstoev 05-20-2011 12:06 AM

OMG! EPIC! Now this really looks like a capital city.

Zhaboka 05-20-2011 01:04 AM

A reskin of WHAT, exactly? That looks ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!

Marius Fett 05-20-2011 07:37 AM

Is it an M4-78 area by any chance?

Slstoev 05-20-2011 08:27 AM

At first I didn't know it was a reskin. Then by the post below my mine I conclude that that is M4-78.

Dak Drexl 05-20-2011 08:53 AM

Looks great!! Is this the Onderon expansion?

It's a reskin of 803dro from M478 yes....

Only part of it..

Ferc Kast 05-20-2011 09:17 AM

Looks like a good reskin of the module. :)

Sith Holocron 05-20-2011 10:53 PM

Is it just me or did you also adjust the light maps in your reskinned 803dro module?

No. I thought for sure I would have to, but I was lucky.


Thanks to Fallen Guardian who is going to do that merchant request for me.

M478. Specifically, the area which was originally going to be the HK Factory (before that got moved and later scrapped), and was later turned into the environmental section, if I'm right. But it's very hard to tell - even I took a while to work it out. Nicely done, newbiemodder. :D

harark1 05-22-2011 11:24 AM

Nice, now I see why you were woking with onderon textures. Looks great.

I've got a suggestion, a question, and a (perhaps odd) request. For your Yuthura Ban mod, would it not make the most sense if it was only open to folks that chose the backstory for a light sided Revan (either male of female)? It wouldn't make much sense if bad guy Revan redeemed her IMHO.

Will your mod acknowledge any of the things that happened in TimBob's The Redemption of Yuthura Ban mod?

I have an "out there" suggestion for whomever voices your Yuthura Ban. Suggest to her that she also redo all of the lines that were said by that character in K1 as well. Might be nice as a small bonus add-on to your mod package and it will also allow you to sidestep the folks that might complain that she doesn't sound just like the original voice actress. Bad idea?

Ah, my old friend Sith_Holocron....always trying to make me work more.

In regards to your suggestions: 1) The mod is based on the assumption that Revan helped redeem her...this topic will not be addressed in the mod. I don't know how I could restrict it to players. Don't forget this is for TSL not K1. 2) I have not played TB's Yuthura recruitment mod, so no. Shouldn't really matter, though, nothing from K1 will really be addressed. The backstory of Yuthura is really created by the players themselves. 3) Going back and redoing K1 Yuthura voice files = :loco:

And before you ask...yes it will be compatable with TSLRCM :)

When the player first meets Atton, you determine the gender and whether the playthrough of the fiurst game was LS or DS through conversational choices. If you click that Revan was dark sided, would it not make sense that you couldn't play your mod - concerning a redeemed Yuthura, at least.

That makes sense actually.....good call.

newbiemodder 06-30-2011 02:27 PM

Hey guys - Just a little update before the 4th of July holiday...this is for the Onderon Expansion/Yuthura mod. Making some pretty good progress, seems to be coming together nicely...

Here are some random pics:

For all those celebrating Independence Day this weekend, be safe and don't do anything stupid.

Salzella 06-30-2011 02:33 PM

Dude, your skins are unreal o.O

Snard 06-30-2011 02:49 PM

I think he merged the archive from dantooine into this. very good job. do you need any help with the mod?

Thanks. It's probably one of my favorite parts of modding...reskinning modules to make new areas. I don't know why though, it's a long boring tedious process especially if reskinning an entire module.

The picture you are referring to is the Hall of Records. I reskinned a couple of rooms from 852NIH. The shelves are custom placeables I made, but used the bookcase .tga from Dantooine for the skin.

Not at the current moment. However I may call for help when vo's need to be done or maybe some random small skin or something. Thanks for the offer.

LDR 06-30-2011 05:07 PM

If you need VO's, then I could help ya.

reivzje 07-01-2011 08:59 AM

I could do some VO aswell when you will need them :)

Zhaboka 07-01-2011 10:36 PM

Same about VOs, as always. That is some amazing skinning going on there. Your placeables are uncannily natural-looking in the context of the modules.

newbiemodder 07-01-2011 11:32 PM

Thanks to the vo volunteers...I'll let you know when I'm ready..

Exile007 07-03-2011 09:05 PM

Holy cow. Those are some pretty neat reskins, newbiemodder. Why is your name "newbiemodder"? You should request a name change to "ubermodder". :xp:

I especially like the new Jekk'Jekk Tarr module. Maybe it's because that module isn't the target of many reskin attempts. It looks much different. I couldn't even tell which module it was until I took a look at the minimap. Might even want to do some changes to the map to give it even more originality and REALLY sell it as a new module. ;)

Great progress! Keep up the good work and resolve! :thmbup1:

Sith Holocron 07-03-2011 11:38 PM

On Telos - IIRC - there was an Onderon Ambassador (or something like that) that was just hanging around in the Medical Labs. Perhaps you could re-purpose that fellow to be in your mod?

Wow, that is the Jekk'Jekk Tarr? I did'nt even realize. Nice reskin :thmbup1:

newbie confirms as one of my all-time favourite modders.

newbiemodder 08-17-2011 08:50 PM

Hey all, just a little update for you to let you know I am still working. Mod is progressing nicely. Must be getting better at this stuff because it doesn't nearly take as long as it used to. Currently stuck on some dialog parts, but will get them worked out.

Here are some pics.

Yuthura
http://www.lucasforums.com/picture.p...pictureid=8429

This part of the mod is part of the jungle, so I am reusing Dxun as many modders before me have. There is not a lot of options...so the best could do is turn off the rain, turn down the 'fog' effect, change the ambient color tones slightly, added a few trees..to try to give it a different feel. Not much of a 'wow' factor with these

Some other random pics:

This next module is one of Quanon's..not much done with it yet but will be shortly. I think it fits nicely into the jungle scene

http://www.lucasforums.com/picture.p...pictureid=8430


Will also be using a couple more of Quanon's donated modules. Those will require some work though. Plan on reskinning them and adding some stuff to make it less Korriban and more Onderon 'jungle'. That will definitely slow my progress down.

Thx

Zhaboka 08-17-2011 09:31 PM

Very nice! I'm excited for the use of Quanon's cache. You are very prepared to use them to their fullest.

newbiemodder 09-04-2011 11:29 AM

Just a little update.

I've started on some of the modules that Quanon so kindly donated to the community. I've included a small cutscene. This particular cutscene is the exterior of the Shatoon Monastery on Onderon. I found a small reference to it in Wookieapedia and thought Quanon's Exar Khun module could be used for it.

The wookeiapedia info can be found here:

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Shatoon_Monastery

I didn't have to reskin too much. Mainly the building itself and I changed the mud for the water to give it a more peaceful look. I also excluded some of Quanon's sith statues.

Hope you like.

Looks great! Although the lighting seems a bit off.
