File Description

Oooh… my first review – it’s strangely exciting, what with all these buttons and all; I must say it’s all terribly confusing.

Lonna Vash is the Jedi Master that Obsidian Entertainment had slated for M4-78. The planet was cut shortly after the E3 demo of TSL and Master Vash along with it. What Sikon (a.k.a. ‘S’) has done is take what was left of Master Vash’s dialogue, trim it and create an entire new subplot for Korriban by removing Vash’s corpse from the academy and leaving a trail for the player to follow.

It’s surprisingly compelling and aside from the scripting and the effort to test the thing, Sikon will have had to crawl through the dialog.TLK file (a wonderful mess of dialogue strings… it’s not pretty, trust me) – which deserves a medal in itself – to reconstruct the shattered dialogue (scattered to the winds as it was and in eighteen different locations around the galaxy… it’s an epic in the telling… well, sort of… but not a glamorous one, anyway).

jonathan7 managed to grab a hold of this mod and submitted it for upload – so kudos to the finder, too. A cool mod that is seemingly bugless.

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.

P.S. The stylish screenshots are courtesy of Emperor Devon, who kindly and valiantly played through the mod to grab some when I announced to him - in a proud voice I might add - that I had nothing in the way of pictures. The look he fixed me with... or, well... the text he fixed me with... no, doesn't have the same ring... anyway, he did something that made me feel more than a little foolish and hurriedly rushed to press the 'PrtScn' button repeatedly.

BUGS: None that are known of at this time. The Author (Sikon) had fixed the below problems in versions 1.1 and 1.2;

Changes from 1.1 to 1.2

- Fixed a bug that sometimes made tomb doors invisible.
- Fixed an exploit that allowed Dark Side characters to gain many Light Side points from Vash.
- Fixed a bug that made Vash stand still after you picked the "exhausted" reply option, forcing you to click on her to reinitiate the conversation.
- Fixed USM compatibility issues, including the "Vash lies dead before you" bug.
- Fixed framebuffer effects: the "security camera" blue effect will no longer show up when talking to Vash, and the "clairvoyance/precognition" effect added to the Vash/door open scene after Revan's defeat.
- Tweaked the Shyrack Cave entrance, it will now once again show the transition popup.
- The unique Sith Assassin's lightsaber changed to single-bladed purple. Also, if USM is installed, he will wield and drop Vash's Harmony unique lightsaber.

Changes from 1.0 to 1.1

- Fixed a bug that could make you stuck in Ludo Kressh's tomb after defeating Revan.
- Fixed the broken (blank) journal entries.
- Removed the Force Push casting sound, it was not synchronized with the actual Force Push anyway.
- Vash's lightsaber color changed to silver from purple.
- Vash will now ignite her lightsaber when challenged by Sion.
- Music added: the Jedi theme is played when the player encounters Vash, Sion's theme is played when he enters the chamber, and the Sith theme is played after the player kills Vash.
- A few ways to get Light/Dark Side Points are introduced into the conversation with Vash.
- The Sith Assassin with the datapad (in the cave) now fights with a double-bladed blue lightsaber (Vash's original one).
- Reworded some text for Kaah's hologram, his and the Sith Assassin's datapads.
- Added a missing lipsync file for Sion's response to the male Exile in the Sith Academy. (I did most of the testing with a female Exile, maybe that explains...)
