Mod Rating: Advanced
Inyri Forge is, I hope, a modder who needs no introduction. This latest mod from one of the most prolific modellers to work on KotOR is the Deldrimor Sword from Guild Wars, which, since its introduction in April, has apparently become very popular. It's been a little while since Inyri's last release, and it's nice to see another mod by her uploaded here.
The model is, quite simply, excellent, and the texturing is also very, very good. While it is tempting to say that the mod is up to Inyri's usual high standard, this is not true - this mod exceeds even that, and it would be no exaggeration to say that this is probably the best model we've had in a good while. The accuracy of the model is as near to perfect as makes no odds, and the texture looks great. In-game it looks even better than in the shots, and it fits the aesthetic of the game well, particularly where Wookiees are involved.
The description is nice and to the point, reflecting the fantasy origins of the weapon, while the stats are based upon those of the weapon in Guild Wars. If there are criticisms to be made of the mod, some may view the stats (2-20 Physical Damage bonus, +3 Constitution) as a little overpowered and the description is not very Star Wars-y. The darker areas of the texture also do not show up especially well in-game, either.
However, the stats reflect those in Guild Wars, as the description refers to the mod's origin, and the texturing is actually quite visible; overall, these are minor quibbles regarding a nevertheless very cool mod.
NB: Please leave constructive criticism, particularly if you download and use this mod, as the download-counter isn't very informative.
*********************************** Knights of the Old Republic *********************************** TITLE: Deldrimor Sword AUTHOR: Inyri Forge E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org WEBSITE: http://inyri.flowinternet.net DATE RELEASED: 18 August 2008 CREDITS: Guild Wars, NCsoft, and ArenaNet for their original weapon design. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Copy the contents of the archive to your SWKOTOR Override directory. INCLUDED FILES: -deldrimor_sword.uti -ds-if.tga -ds-if.txi -iw_lngswrd_192.tga -w_lngswrd_192.mdx -w_lngswrd_192.mdl -This Read-me file UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the above named files from your override folder. DESCRIPTION: This sword, called the Deldrimor Sword, is a weapon best known from its appearance in Guild Wars. It was added to the game in April 2008 at which time it became exceptionally popular due to its pointy and otherwise sharp nature. I recommend having a Wookiee wield it, since it's understandably large (it's from a current-day fantasy role-playing game -- what did you expect?). The sword's bonuses are set to reflect the bonuses received for the Guild Wars unique version of this weapon, obtainable in the Prophecies end-game area. For (hopefully) obvious reasons, I did not place the weapon anywhere in the game. You will need to use the cheat console to give yourself the sword (giveitem deldrimor_sword).
