Community Project: Holiday Mods
 
Hello fellow people of Holowan,

Sithspector has given me permission to host this community project, "Holiday Mods". Every 3 months or so, there is a major holiday, "Halloween -> Christmas" and during the three month time period [Or even less!] you guys have to send me as many textures, skins, models, or quests to add into the certain holiday mod we are focused on. This project will go on until December 25, 2013

Holidays: Easter, May the Forth [Star Wars holiday], Forth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

As I post this, the holiday mod we are focused on is, "EASTER" We only have until March 31st

Anything you guys send to me will be injected into the game, maybe needing minor changes. The top contributor will get a special edition of the focused mod, so hurry!

GOOD LUCK!!

So what are you doing for this project?

I'm doing the same as any other person participating, making skins, textures, etc. This is a community project so its not 100% up to me, its for the community to make/decide what to do.

L0ki194 03-15-2013 06:14 PM

Sooo, Holiday themed mods? Cool.
Question: For which game? KOTOR or TSL?

Sith Holocron 03-15-2013 06:46 PM

If it's your project, why the sudden deadline?

Read the first post, it is deadlined after each holiday so you dont play a new Easter mod during Christmastime. This is a Community Project, it doesnt really count as my personal project. After Easter, the new deadline will be May 4th, then 4th of July, October 31st, etc with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Ugh... *facepalm* My bad.... Somehow, I had missed that part. Heh, whoops!

Zhaboka 03-17-2013 08:42 PM

I will write and voice an in-universe Santa Claus if anyone wants to make a skin and an NPC .utc. Maybe make him a Hutt?

Fallen Guardian 03-17-2013 11:31 PM

If it's just making the character and getting him in game I'll do that for you Zhaboka.

Sith Holocron 03-17-2013 11:51 PM

Christmas? I hope you mean Life Day! ;)

Yeah, just making the skin and getting the couple files to put him somewhere humorous. Let's do it! But that'll be after summer, I suppose, because Christmas is soooo far away. We'll talk.

All righty then.

Scorge 03-18-2013 09:11 PM

Glad I got some participants, I might be able to make a module for the Santa, even children in line to see him.

Zhaboka 03-19-2013 01:31 AM

Haha, that would be truly comedic.

Sam Spain 03-19-2013 06:36 AM

Someone should replace the gizka with an Easter bunny.

Thats possible, though we only have until March 31st for the Easter Mod.

Scorge 03-29-2013 10:37 AM

Not any participation at all, I guess this project is dead, nice to know no one cares.....

LDR 03-29-2013 01:45 PM

I've abstained from modding for Lent. Sorry.

Well, to be fair, the Easter deadline was very tight. Only about 2 weeks, which isn't enough time to do almost anything but the most basic mods. Maybe you should try for a 4th of July or something with a little more of a realistic time frame.

Well I was warned that community projects don't go too well here, so I don't think it would make a difference.

Sith Holocron 03-30-2013 01:33 PM

In addition to what SS said, showing work that you have contributed shows your commitment to a project,it gives others a baseline on what you're looking for, and shows you're not entirely reliant of the work of others. But a lot lead time is need for a project of your scope.

In short, work on July 4th stuff now if you want this project to have a chance.

I certainly hope this doesn't come across as mean spirited as that's not my intention.

Scorge 04-08-2013 07:18 AM

For anyone contributing to the 4th of July Mod, I will be hosting a meeting at my chat box Friday 4-12-13 [American Date Layout]. So far we only have a few people so I need to know whose contributing or not, even if you haven't done anything yet, I have things to do for you.

Zhaboka 04-08-2013 05:12 PM

I don't know how one would do this, but having the guns in the game shoot fireworks instead of laser beams would be a cool 4th of July mod.

I will try that, but the idea will need to be changed a bit. I'm afraid
that some people will turn down the mod as some people here do not live in the U.S.A,
unless they have something in their culture with the same thing. If I find out,
I will add some stuff from other countries celebrating something just like the Fourth of July.

Currently I have not started working on the mod, I am organising all the ideas, story, etc.
To make life much more easier instead of having loads of people doing the same thing, I need modders for these sections,

1 or 2 Writer/s
2 or 3 Skinners/Texturers
1 Scripter
[Optional] 1 Modeler (Guns, Lightsabers)


Many think that this mod won't survive long, but I see potential. Everyday I look back at the popular mods
[RoR, TJM, EotF, BoS] and think wow, I want to make a mod as good as that! But I never get far enough
due to the community. I know I haven't posted any mods really, but there is a reason. Whenever I make a
mod I always think about the community, if you guys will like it. But I always look at other mods and know
that you guys won't like the mod I made, I'm confident about this mod, and I bet the community will be too!

Scorge 04-09-2013 07:23 AM

Hey guys,

I'm going to have to move the meeting to Saturday, 4-13-13.

The meeting will be held here.

Scorge 04-14-2013 11:02 AM

Well, I haven't seen anyone at the meeting yesterday, so I guess I will postpone it?

supreme kotor 04-26-2013 08:23 PM

I am here to tell you a story. The story starts out something like this: There was once a Kotor modder named Supreme Kotor who was very new to the lucasforums when he discovered the Community Project: Holiday Mods. Supreme Kotor liked the idea very much so much infact that he wanted to contribute, but alas Supreme Kotor did not have the experiance to make anything for the Easter Release this made him sad:(. Then a new day dawned the announcement of the summer release :D. Supreme Kotor was excited to make something for the project. Then Supreme Kotor saw Scorges post and was afraid no one else would make anything and Supreme Kotors Beloved Prjoect would die. Yet still he made something something called Summer Narsahdaa where there are kickable beachballs (That was a major pain) and there was sand on the ground. Wow that was a lot to type -_- bassicly I got some screenshots here of what im working on the Beachballs will come soon enough I can't release all the fun in one post ;).

Yeah those are kinda the best part. Glad you like it so far. :)

Scorge 04-29-2013 04:46 PM

I never mentioned a "summer release" but I'll just go with the flow and add that onto the Fourth of July mod.

Oops :p I will splash in some 4th colors so you can pass it off as 4th of July.

Update: I've been working on it never realized Nar had so many lightmaps but it's not a big deal just time consuming (that's the big reason I don't have more screens) also ran into some problems with beach balls:lol:

Ps. Has anybody ever used TimBobs populate function on custom placeables? Does it work? PM me if you have.

-Supreme Kotor

supreme kotor 05-05-2013 02:37 PM

Update and Question
 
Hey guys! :)

So this is less of an update and more of a question. I actuallt finished these Beach Balls early last week but was waiting to show them to you guys untill I actually put them in the game. So then I sat down at my computer launched TSL and started getting coordinates when I realized: "what if the community dosen't like them and I put them in the game for nothing". So heres pics of 2 of them in Gmax(The rest will stay a suprise) what do you guys think? Are they Kotor worthy?

Ball 1
Ball 2

Let me know what you guys think wether it's good or bad.

-Supreme Kotor

Scorge 05-05-2013 02:49 PM

They look awesome, could you edit the Red, white, and blue one with yellow stars? Makes a more 4th of July feel. I still need to wrap everything up, and organise all my ideas.

Zhaboka 05-05-2013 04:11 PM

They look great. Nice and garish. :)

Scorge 05-05-2013 09:41 PM

Well guys I finished the lightmaps today and come across a MAJOR problem :mad:. Unless SithSpector or Canderis (Im sure theres more I mention thoose to becuae of darker peraugus and mannan reskins) fealt like saving the day it will no longer be summer Nar it will have to be a diffrent planet. Thats all I have to say to most of you but if your intrested in the problem feel free to read on. :) Well it appers that the lightmaps dont effect every part of nar don't belive me? Have a look. So now that you know what I mean got a sulution?

PS. What should the new summer module be? (If no sulution is found because I really want to do Nar)
