Sometimes after an author releases a mod, they then somehow get inspired to improve upon it. That’s why we have a lot of outdated mods on the site. I am surprised at the amount of downloads that some of the outdated mods do get so that is a reason why they are still here. Other times it’s to correct bugs that have happened.
Eagleracer38x makes an update to his New Work Bench Upgrades mod for the game Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. This 1.5 version now adds 19 Jedi and Sith robes to make at the workbench that are upgradable. This adds more variety to a mod that already has a lot to offer you that I know will be popular because the Knights of the Old Republic game revolve around the Jedi and Sith Order and helping to make adjustments to Jedi or Sith robes help the reply value of the game.
The TSL Patcher will install this mod to add lines to three different .2da files or add those files with changes in your personal override folder depending on what you use in there. This is very handy to those who never have opened the KOTOR Tool and messed around with the .2da editor. Enjoy the new 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 Work Bench Upgrades Author : Eagleracer38x email: firstname.lastname@example.org date: 09/13/07 V1.0, 9/24/07 V1.5 ==================================================== This is a package of 114 "new" upgrades for weapons, 3 new underlays that can be used on robes or armors and 19 new variations of Jedi and Dark Jedi robes. They are all createdable at the work bench, and right now the only other way to get them is to use KSE or 'giveitem' cheat. This mod started out with me always wanting a lightsaber that did most cold damage. Personally I found lightsabers in game lacking in functional variety. Then there are things like Jedi and other force uses imbueing weapons with the force, but nothing in game to reflect that. Lightsabers are suppose to be as unique as the person who carries it. So this mod is an attempt to create more of that variety and uniqueness in game. The upgrades are altered versions of prexisting in game upgrades, primarily changing the damage type to other types of damage. Everthing is based of the MKIII to MKIV or whatever the "top" lvl upgrade is called. I didn't do one for each of the weaker variations, beause that would make this mod substantially bigger, which would be a huge clutter in your 'override' folder and at your workbench in-game. Not to mention slow down the loadtime of your workbench. And you do have the few original upgrades to last you till you can make the new ones. The required skill levels are the same as the original in game item it is based off of or something that requires a simliar # of componets to create. I also made new lenses out of all the original in game upgrade crystals, because... well a crystal is a crystal regarless of it's shape, size or how it's cut... The force cares nothing for size, right? And it adds a lot of new diversisty, which is after all the whole point of this mod after all. In comparison to other lenses, they are pretty equal in power. New for version 1.5: There are 19 new variations of jedi and dark jedi robes that can be created at the workbench. The defense bonus varies from 1 to 10, and the robes are more and more upgradeable with underlays and overlays the heavier they get. But these additional bonuses of defense and upgradeablilty come at a cost to dexterity starting at def bonus of 6 and eventually an attack penalty starting at a def bonus of 9. There is a new "Verpine Robe" a spin off of the Norris Robe using the normal Jedi Robe apperenace just for fun. It protects against Ion damage. Also added vibroblades to the creation table, which I meant to do in version 1. Lightsabers where placed there as well in version 1, I just never mentioned it so it would be a surprise. :-P Also fixed the installer changes.ini file. All the icons are pre-existing ingame icons, because it avoids either overwriting in-game icons or adding new lines to the baseitems.2da. Note about damage types, 'Grey Side'damage is half dark side and half light side damage. Plasma should all be listed as Ion and Fire damage, which is primarily half and half as well. Installation Instructions: ----------------------------- 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 upgrade.2da, itemcreate.2da and itemcreatemira.2da 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: ----------------------------- Lightsaber Cells with Slashing, Cold, Light Side, Fire, Dark Side, Sonic, Ion, Plasma, Grey Side and Energy Damage Lightsaber Emitters with Slashing, Cold, Light Side, Electrical Fire, Dark Side, Sonic, Plasma, Grey Side and Ion Damage Lightsaber Lenses with Slashing, Cold, Light Side, Electrical Fire, Dark Side, Sonic, Plasma, Grey Side and Ion Damage Lens versions of all in-game upgrades crystals Melee cells and edges with Slashing, Light Side, Electrical Fire, Dark Side, Sonic, Ion, Plasma, Grey Side and Energy Damage Blaster chambers and power cells with Slashing, Cold, Light Side, Electrical Fire, Dark Side, Sonic, Plasma, Grey Side and Ion Damage Along with a few other parts that have other properties like stuns or defense bonuses and the like. Again, Plasma = 1/2 Ion + 1/2 Fire Grey Side = 1/2 Light Side + 1/2 Dark Side New robes with varying def bonuses and upgradeablility. Known Bugs and Issues: ----------------------------- This should work with any other upgrade mods out there. No known in-game bugs either. Giveitem Item Cheat Console Codes: --------------------------------------------------- Underlays: u_a_unde_301 -303 Lightsaber Power Cells: u_l_cell_301 -310, 314-323 Lightsaber Emiiters: u_l_emit_301 -310, 314-319 Lightsaber Lenses: Crystal Lenses- u_l_clen_01 -28 New Lenses- u_l_lens_301 -310 Melee Power Cells: u_m_cell_301 -310 Melee Blade Edges: u_m_edge_301 -310 Blaster Power Cells: u_r_powe_301 -310 Blaster Chambers: u_r_firi_301 -310 Robes: a_robe_300 -308, 329 -337, 358 If ya want to cheat, you get to count to find the one you want. ;-) The upgrade's # corisponds to the order they appear on the upgrades list in game. So lightsaber powercell 302 is the 2nd one on this list of new powercells, and #314 would be the 11th one on the list. And yes there are some numbers that are skipped, you can guess why....
