Colors are nice. The more you can choose from, the better. Humans typically as they grow into fully developed people develop their person color preferences. Anytime we have a chance to choose from different color choices, we get happier for some reason.
In the case of lightsaber colors; despite what George Lucas has established as what colors are available in the Star Wars Universe, games outside of his storyline tend to go towards directions of multiple colors that are outside the traditional blue, red, green, and purple for Mace Windu. In the case of Knights of the Old Republic, it added yellow, orange (Heart of the Guardian), and cyan (Mantle of the Force). When Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords was made, silver and viridian were added to the possible colors to choose from. I know if I don’t cover it, somebody won’t be able to resist to let me know that I was wrong and try to point out that I didn’t include the bronze color in my review for TSL. Then I would have to say in return that the bronze and orange lightsabers use the same blade color, so I don’t count bronze since it’s not its own color. Okay, I got that out of the way.
Eagleracer38x sends us an updated file to his color crystal mod. In this mod includes some new color crystals with some new lightsaber colors to choose from that you can get in the Ebon Hawk near HK-47. This will give you more colors to choose from.
The reason for the update is because apparently for some people some of the items were not spawning so the author had to make some fixes to the scripts in hopes it will solve the problem. There are some new added options to this update that you will have to read up on in the readme file.
The TSL Patcher will help you install the mod for easy installation and patching up the upcrystals.2da file that needs some added lines so you can remove and add the new color crystals into the different types of lightsabers. Enjoy the update! :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.
====================================================== KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: THE SITH LORDS MODIFICATION ====================================================== NAME : New Lightsaber Color Crystals Author : Eagleracer38x email: firstname.lastname@example.org date: 08/28/07 V1.0 ==================================================== This is a package of custom saber colors along with adding the missing files for the Mantle of the Froce, Heart Of the Guardian and the Bronze color crystals. These crystals can be found in game on the Ebon Hawk in room you find HK-47 in or gotten by using the 'giveitem' cheat with the cheat console, the giveitem codes are listed at the bottom of the readme. All the sabers have the same properties as the standar in game sabers. And can be used as single, double or short blade lightsabers. Installation Instructions: ----------------------------- If you have Envida's smuggler's compartment mod, this mod uses the same 003_ebo_enter.ncs and 004_ebo_enter.ncs files, so if you get an error about copying those to the override folder it shouldn't be a problem. First, if you have not already done so, create a folder called "Override", without the quotes, in your KOTOR2 directory. Extract the contents of the zip to a temporary folder, run the Patcher EXE follow the instructions, and you should be good to go. Using the TSL Patcher this mod now will modify upcrystals.2da There are some optional TGA's and UTI files that you can copy and paste to your override. The UTI's add the color name to the lightsabers in the equip screen. TGA's are new color maps to replace the in game sabers, which may confict with other mods, and a set of Orange Icons to change them from the Heart of The Guardian icons. Uninstallation Instructions: ----------------------------- Simply delete these files from your override directory, and restore any necissary files from the backup directory the patcher makes in the temp folder you run the patcher from. This Item Package Contains: ----------------------------- New Blade colors are; Blue Green, Bright Pink, Ice Blue, Light Blue, Magenta, Pale Pink, Purple (differnt that violet), and Yellow Green Fixed in game colors are; Heart of the Guardian, Mantle of the Force and Bronze There are optional tga and uti files. The tga's are new texture maps for the in game colors to match the new colors added by this mod. And a set of Orange saber icons to replace the icons the orange sabers share with the Heart of the Guardian sabers. The optional uti files adds the color name for the in game sabers to the discription. (A blue lightsaber will now show up in the equip screen as "Blue Lightsaber" instead of just "Lightsaber") Known Bugs and Issues: ----------------------------- This mod doesn't confict with USM. It should work with Oldfash's replacements for the in game sabers, but you will have to choose what color maps to use for the blades. None of the saber numbers conflicted with any of the mods I was able to find still available. It also is compatable with Envidia's smuggler compartment mod When using the skip peragus mod, The Veridian sword shows up as an unfinished white saber in game until you go to the work bench, place another color crystal in, then replace the veridian crystal back in the saber and assymble it. I have no idea why, it was doing this even without the uti files I created in this override folder. This may be the case for all virdian sabers you find in game. You recieve two crystal of each color, both originals from in game and new ones, but at the work bench it shows two stacks of two of all the new crystals, but you really do only have two to place in sabers. If you place one in a saber, then you will see two "stacks" of one of each of the new crystals.
