Remember Dustil? If you do, you may recall he is Carth Onasi’s son. If you got the Dustil side quest in the original KOTOR game, you may recall him as a Sith student at the Sith Academy on Korriban. You also may recall, if you chose a light path through out your game, you convinced Dustil to return to the light side of the Force and leave Korriban.
Princess Artemis has decided to bring Dustil (with the help of co-author Jiara) back from the original KOTOR game, and have him join you in your quest in KOTOR II: TSL. There is a catch though. You must have it set that Revan chose a light path from the previous game in order for Dustil to be available to be recruit from on Telos, which can be done when you first meet Atton and explain to him what happened to Revan. It doesn’t matter if Revan was a male or female, as long as he/she was a light sider. As you may recall, Carth’s home planet is Telos and Dustil mentions about going back there if you redeem him. So the author has him there ready to join you. As with all recruitment mods, it will replace a potential party member.
This mod will replace HK-47. “Ouch” some you maybe thinking to yourself since he is a fan favorite. However, that won’t stop you from being able to completely rebuilding HK-47 on the Ebon Hawk. In fact, you can rebuild him (get the experience points for doing it), and have him still on the Ebon Hawk through out the game. He just can’t join your party when you leave the ship. The assassin droid will still have his cut scenes on the Ebon Hawk that you usually see during game play once you rebuild him. If you still want to use HK-47 for a time being before getting Dustil, just don’t recruit him right away when you see him. He’ll join you later if you return to Telos. He’s not going anywhere until you ask him to join you. ;)
The mod uses the TSL Patcher to make it 100% compatible with other mods out there. Other people helped in making this mod possible. Read the readme to see who else helped out with this mod and how to install it. Enjoy having Dustil as an optional party member.
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.
====================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: THE SITH LORDS MODIFACATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: Princess Artemis and Jiara EMAIL: [email protected], [email protected] NAME: NPC Recruitable Dustil CREDITS: Princess Artemis and Jiara directly. cjt0202, stoffe -mkb-, tk102 helped either with custom scripts, tips on how to make them, or having scripts around Holowan Labs that I used parts to make new scripts. FILENAME: PA_K2_Dustil_Recruit.rar FILE SIZE: 1.77 MB DATE RELEASED: Sent to KotOR Files 8/3/2006 DESCRIPTION: Makes Dustil a potential NPC to recruit; he will replace HK-47. Includes dialogues, many cutscenes, and a few custom items. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Un-rar the mod into its own folder, then run TSLPatcher which will show a much more extensive and complete readme file prior to installation. While running TSLPatcher, read the file, click install, then navigate to your LucasArts\SWKotOR2 folder. COMMENTS: Inspiration? Someone at KFM suggested it would be neat to find out in TSL what Dustil was up to. A minor cameo recruit turned into this monster. BUGS: Some people report that Dustil comes out looking like Atton or with Atton's portrait. A fix is included for that. Other known issues are mainly cosmetic (Dustil floats on his status/level up screen, "learns" HK's assassination feats although they are never listed and are not useable.) For some reason, he might gain a rather large amount of XP between his leaving the party the first time and his permanent recruit.
