It’s update time. This time it’s the Dark Apprentice for the game Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, by The Source that has been updated with a little new content and bug fixes for this 2.0 release that has been finally completed and released to the public here on FileFront.
To summarize what you will get in this mod: You will get a chance to run into Bastila Shan on the planets of Telos and Dantooine. Mission Vao is mentioned, but not seen. Remember the legendary Nomi Sunrider? She was brought up once by Jolee Bindo in the first Knights of the Old Republic game. She makes an appearance on Nar Shaddaa.
Modules on Nar Shaddaa, especially the docks area have had a makeover done to them in terms of how they physically look. Bastila Shan will be a selectable head along with dark side transitions and will have new skin textures for her default style clothing.
There are some optional skins to install in this mod like dark side Bastila clothing and a younger looking version of Kreia in her Darth Traya colored clothing. Those are in the "You Choose" folder you will see once you have unzipped the contents of the mod.
The main objective to this mod is the fact that it adds a new story to it that begins just outside of the Ithorian complex on Telos. Other members who helped contribute or advised on this mod are Jae Onasi, Darth InSidious, Darth Reign, T7nowhere, Commas, Darth Moeller, Darth333, Stoffe, and ChAiNz.2da.
The biggest update this mod brings you is the convenience for non-modders; that is the TSL Patcher will be used to install it. There were other bugs fixed in this release that are listed on the readme file. Make sure you read it. Enjoy the updated version! :D
Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.
Dark Apprentice: Holowan Consortium (Vrs. 2.00.00) Developed By: The Source (MacLeodCorp), Jae Onasi, Darth InSidious, T7nowhere, Commas, Darth Moeller, & LucasForums Community Since nearly the beginning of their existence, the Jedi have battled some of the greatest enemies in the galaxy. Each Jedi follows a unique path which leads them to their fate. For thousands of years, they have followed a strict moral code. Now the Jedi Code hangs in the balance. Everything the Jedi know will be challenged, and they will face the ultimate evil. . ‘There is no emotion, there is only peace.” I. The Dark Apprentice: Holowan Consortium: (Vrs. 2.00.00) • The Dark Apprentice: Holowan Consortium is a content mod, which adds the following: side quests, robes, armor, lightsabers, merchants, one female darkside transition set, and non-player characters. When installed, Bastila can be played as a selectable player character and/or you can find her as a non-player character. • Side Quest #1 - #2 is based upon Bastila Shan, Mission Vao, and Nomi Sunrider. Five years ago, Bastila Shan went into exile. During her exile, two forces started to hunt her. One enemy is a previous companion who helped Revan and Bastila capture the Star Forge. Another enemy is from a deeper past, and this Jedi Master is seeking revenge. (Mission is not included, but she is a storyline focus.) • Side Quests #3 - #5 are based upon three bounties that are available through Bossk. As you interact with the various NPCs, you will be rewarded according to your responses with items such as Lighsabers, Robes, Darkside and Lightside Points, XP, etc… • Merchants – Two new merchants were added to the Nar Shaddaa Docks. While visiting these merchants, you will be able to purchase rare robes, armor, crystals, and HK-47 plot parts. While creating this mod, I also rearranged, edited, or added items to Telos (Residental & Medical Module 082), Dantooine (Khoonda & Khoonda Grounds), and Nar Shaddaa (Docks). See below for a brief rundown on changes.) (The story is inspired by RedHawke's: KotOR I: Make Mission a Jedi Mod.) (Please follow the installation instructions closely.) II.

(Now requires: KotOR TSL Patch 1.0b to be installed.) • TSLPatcher (‘DAPHC 2.00.00 Installer’): Just click on the installer and the files will be placed into their proper folders. No other changes need to take place. • You Choice(s) Folder: These files are based upon self preference. You have the option of choosing certain ‘other files’ to install, which do not directly affect overall mod functionality. (Don’t forget to choose a darkside robe for Bastila, or she will wear her lightside clothes on Dantooine.). (See Section: V. Installation Choices (‘You Choose’ Folder’)) In order to install, you must empty your choice from the ‘You Choose’ folder into KotOR II’s override folder. (Without the subfolders provided) (See under the section called: ‘Installation Choices’ for your options.) • BU 2DA Files:: These file are for non-modders. If you don’t have Fred’s KotORTool, there are certain files needed for this mod to work. Place the files within the ‘BU UnPatched’ folder into the ‘override’ folder, and then run the ‘DAPHC 1.00.35 Installer’. These need to be in the ‘override’ folder before you run the installer. VII. TROUBLESHOOTING: • In order to install this mod, you need an override folder in your Knights of The Old Republic II directory. If a folder does not exist, you need to create and label a new one. • In some cases, there may be similar elements used in another mod. If you have another mod with similar labeled items, this mod will override your existing files. Therefore, don't forget to backup your files. VIII.

JEDI MASTER NOMI SUNRIDER THEORY: • During my online research, I have made a conclusion about who is Jedi_Master_4h. As I looked at many resources, from pictures to descriptions, I have drawn the conclusion that the cut Jedi Master is Nomi Sunrider. According to www.StarWars.com’s Extended Universe, Bastila Shan was once called Vima Sunrider. At this point in the Knights of The Old Republic series, Vima would only be a Jedi Knight. As a last second change, Vima’s concept was taken out of the original Knights of The Old Republic. Now, there are many factors that support the Nomi Sunrider theory: 1. Nomi’s robe was designed in KotOR II style. If Nomi did not exist at the time, the robes would have been created in KotOR I format. 2. All pictures from comic books to novels show two important similarities between the head model and descriptions. First, her hair style and color is an exact match to the comic book. Second, her eye color is an exact match. Since Vima would have been a Jedi Knight at the time, I can only conclude that the Jedi_Master_4h model is Nomi Sunrider. 3. Nomi’s eye color matches her robe. Both the robes and eye color are green/hazel. I hope that this sheds some light on my conclusions. XIII. HOW TO UNINSTALL (ALL) VERSIONS: • The Dark Apprentice: HC (Vrs. 1.00.28 – 2.00.00) (Uninstall Instructions) - In order to prepare for the next version of DAP (The Dark Apprentice), you will have to uninstall some very important files. Even though I have added instructions in the original version, I thought I would make a special list of files to uninstall. Since an extensive amount of the original mod has been revised, I thought it would be wise to create this list. Suggestion: Open your ‘Override’ folder, and sort the directory listing by name.
