Obiwan3001 brings us yet again more of those awesome changes for Knights of the old Republic 2 The Sith Lords as mentioned in the first review but with MORE upgrades and more of the awesomness that is the Weapons Rehaul mod. This one features bigger and better changes that will open up a whole new world of possiblities for the causual AND the insomniacs who play KOTOR 2. Some of the new features include upgraded stats on both weapons, robes, and armor plus it still has all of the feture you came to love in the first one! Now I usually like to give you all a chance to see the other review before I go into specifics so you all may see what this mod actually does, so here is the first review...
Obiwan3001 brings us another mod to play with that has lots of changes made, which obviously took a lot of time to do. I get to tell you some of the details of the changes he brings.
Let’s start with the lightsaber crystals. Some of them have been changed. Notably the crystal that bonds with you that you can get on Dantooine. He only modified two UTI files of that crystal, but there are a total of 36 possible outcomes with that crystal depending on which level you are at, your Force alignment, etc. Plus Kreia can make it more powerful as you get more powerful, which makes changes to a new UTI file. So the chances of getting the author’s modification is very slim. All of the color crystals give you bonuses, so those work to perfection.
The Zakkeg has been strengthen to give you more of a challenge. It now has 30 strength, 20 dexterity, and 31 constitution. It also has saving throw bonuses of 10 in fortitude, 9 in reflex, and 21 in will. He also made modifications to Kreia, Nihilus, and Sion UTC files. The problem with this is that he chose the wrong ones if he is planning on them being more powerful. I recommend the author to do some testing before releasing mods. That way he knows if they worked correctly.
In the balance folder you have the autobalance.2da file, which many areas have been modified. Lots of numbers have been decreases while others have been increased. I’ve never messed with that .2da file, so your guess is as good as mine as to what it will do since it isn’t described in the readme.
Fifteen pistols and thirteen rifles have been modified. Twenty-one melee weapons have been modified to be more powerful. Six headbands have been changed. Eighteen of the thirty Jedi robes have been changed. The author did take the time to make changes to all the possible default lightsabers in the game. He also modified the rockets that Mira used, but that shouldn’t give any damage bonuses. The author needs to do some modifications to the spells.2da file and some scripting to make them more powerful.
The author is new to modding and will eventually learn more about how to do some changes. I strongly suggest that he do more testing before he jumps the gun and releases mods. The potential is there. :D
Now as you all can see from the first review this mod has A LOT of cool stuff in it. This one like I said before features all of that stuff but with a HUGE boost to give it that extra push it needs to make it one of those mods that you just have to get. So I really hope you all enjoy this mod as I know I will and good job Obiwan3001 for making such an awesome mod THEN making it even better.;)
