Description
-----------
A very long time ago, a guy called Nur Ab Sal realised that the KotOR II loading screens were ugly, and decided to replace them with the concept art Obsidian drew up, instead.

He did so, but his mod disappeared when PCGameMods was destroyed, and so I decided to repeat the job myself, because I got bored of the normal loading screens. I couldn't get all the same concept art as Nur Ab Sal, and in a few places had to improvise - nevertheless, where his mod replaced around 28 of roughly 80 loading screens, this mod will replace around 40, and is therefore worthy of release.

Installation
------------
Put all the files in the "Loadscreens" folder into your Override folder.

Uninstallation
--------------
Take them all back out again.

some of the concept arts are already in another mod here , however, since this mod was released at pcgameworld, it's good to have another mod like yours Darth InSidious online again

You have some cool concept arts there, however, i don't like loading screen with the droids but i do like the Atris

Saw this posted earlier and I liked what I saw. My favorite screen is the artwork for interior of G0-T0's Yacht.

I wonder what art you couldn't acquire from the original loading screen mod. Perhaps if you let us know what you're looking for, attempts could made to find it for you. As you said elsewhere all of your work was directly sourced so you may not have wanted any of his material anyway.

Also, have you any plans to expand this mod to cover all of the loading screens?

I'm not sure that there's enough concept art to cover the whole game, but if there were, I'd be glad to do it.

As to the art: there were some shots of Korriban - the tomb and the interior of the Academy, as I recall, and a couple of bits on Dxun - a jungle shot, I think, that were unobtainable. Over all, not that much, but it's enough that I felt my mod wasn't quite the same. Thanks for the offer.

Have you considered using some of Darth_Sith44's Picture Of the Day shots from KOTORFiles? He (or she) has some interesting angles to fill in the blanks where concept art is missing.

I didn't think of that, but I'd rather stick as closely as possible to the concept art.

This looks so fantastic! I backup all the mods I use and was shocked to find the old mod was gone with my last game. Thank you so much for making this mod!

1.1 Patch
From the readme:
Quote:
[TSL] Concept Loading Screens 1.1 Patch
=======================================

By Darth InSidious
------------------

************************************************** *******************************************
UNDER _NO_ CIRCUMSTANCE IS THIS MOD, OR ANY DERIVATE OR PART THEREOF, OR ANY OF MY OTHER MODS
TO BE UPLOADED NOWHERE, AS PART OF A TORRENT OR AT ANY OTHER WEBSITE, FTP, SERVER ETC., EXCEPT BY MYSELF.
************************************************** *******************************************

Description
-----------
This is a small patch to my Concept Loading Screens mod, which changes three loadscreens, and adds another three.
Overall, now 43 out of 80-or-so loadscreens are replaced.

The loadscreen for 402DXN, the second Dxun jungle module, has been replaced with another piece of KotOR II concept art for Dxun.
The loadscreen for 702KOR, the Korriban Academy module, has been replaced with the KotOR II concept art for the area.
The loadscreen for 711KOR, the Hidden Tomb module, has also been replaced with the KotOR II concept art for the area.

The loadscreen for 403DXN, the Mandalorian Camp module, has been added, but in truth, it's the loadscreen I previously used for 402DXN.
The loadscreen for 404DXN, the Mandalorian Cache module, is a piece of concept art done originally for an apparently cut mineshaft on Dxun. That's how it's labelled, anyway.
The loadscreen for 410DXN, the Dxun Temple module, is the concept art done for this area by Obsidian.


Installation

Cool Guy really nice ...

Some of these are excellent IMHO ... liked specially the upper views of Korriban, the Ravager's (awesome!!) and the Harbinger's ... plus the Peragus' views. The less liked for me if u allow me ... Dxun's ... but that's just me.

thanks for making this available again DI
