A new way to experience KotOR II, The Sith Lords Massive Improvement Mod will reskin nearly the entire game, including characters, modules, dark side transitions, and 8000 pixel wide skyboxes. In addition, new visual effects, lightsaber hilts, menus, sound effects, and HUD are planned. Nearly every texture will be resized at least twice its original size, and most commoners will now have unique appearances.
Major new details about the coming coming within the next few weeks.
The reason for the lack of updates lately, to be honest, is that I hadn't actually done anything for quite a while. About a month. I know it's a bad excuse, but I just didn't "feel like it", and I've been busy with several other Star Wars projects, including a Knights of the Old Republic fanfilm titled Revelation - which is not done in the ordinary game-capture way. But this week I decided to just put my focus for now on this mod.
There's some new major plans as well. I'll be having new cinematics in the game, such as for the Devastation of Katarr and Atton's past as an assassin. I'll be using a combination of differenet elements for these, not just game captures. In the deleted Nihilus vs. Sion scene, for example, you will see bolts of lightning shooting through Sion when Nihilus sends Force lightning towards him as you saw happen to Mace Windu in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Not done through the game engine.
I have also set up a Livestream channel to have news, previews, live gameplay, and live modding for TSLMIM. Any previews and trailers will appear there for the first time. Expect a new video update soon.
Finally, do not expect the mod to be released until after a trailer is uploaded (to clarify, not just a preview, a trailer).
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Sith Lords Massive Improvement Mod. We love games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
