File Description

I always look forward to Star Admiral's mods as they are always well conceived, executed and useful. Here he returns with a modders resource, I shall quote SA to give you a good overview of what this does;

"I created this mod at the request of a fellow modder, and as such, this mod is meant as a modder's resource to assist designers with either testing a new module as well as with spawning placeables and NPCs, but players can make use of this mod as well. It adds two armbands to a metal box in the player's room on the Endar Spire. The OpenDoor Armband allows the player to automatically open or close the nearest door within 10 meters of themselves. The Orientation Armband outputs the player's orientation to the player's Feedback screen in three formats, as the whereami cheat only gives the current module and vector location of the player. One format is as degrees, best used in script spawning. The second is as two numbers in radians, best used for setting the orientation of NPCs within the module .git file. The last is as a bearing measured from due north, best used for setting the orientation of placeables and doors within the module .git file."

All in all this looks like a most helpful addition to the community.

Please leave the author praise and constructive criticism; which are often far more valuable than rating mod

K1 Utility Armbands

Version: 1.0

Developer: Star Admiral

Date: 01/27/09

What This Mod Does:
- This mod is intended as a modder’s resource, although they can be of some use for players.
- Adds two armbands to a metal box in the player’s room on the Endar Spire.
- The OpenDoor Armband allows the player to open or close the closest door within 10 meters of themselves.
- The Orientation Armband provides the orientation of the player in various forms in the Feedback section of the player’s journal, as the whereami cheat in K1 only specifies the module name and vector location of the player.
- The Angle Orientation provides the orientation as an angle in degrees, best used in scripts for spawning placeables and NPCs.
- The X and Y Orientations provide the orientation in radians as two numbers, best used when setting the orientation of NPCs within the module .git file.
- The Bearing Orientation provides the orientation as a bearing as measured from due north, best used when setting the orientation of placeables and doors within the module .git file.

Installation Instructions:
This mod uses the TSLPatcher for easy installation. Simply run the executable to install the mod. It will modify and/or replace any conflicting files in your Override folder and save the original files inside the backup folder. Do NOT simply copy the files from the tslpatchdata folder to your Override folder; the mod will not work.

Uninstallation Instructions:
To uninstall this mod, first go to the tslpatchdata folder and select all the files inside. Copy and paste the files into your Override folder, overwriting as needed. Without deselecting the selected files, delete them from your Override folder. Afterwards, go to the backup folder and copy all the files except for the dialog.tlk file back into your Override folder. Lastly, copy the dialog.tlk file back into the main directory of wherever you installed K1, NOT your Override folder.

Compatibility Issues:
This mod should be compatible with any mod out there, as I don’t think there are any that add items to the same room or modify Trask’s dialog. If you want to get the items without cheating, you’ll need to either start a new game or add the items into your inventory using KSE. Otherwise, use the item codes in the Cheat section below to cheat them into the game. If there is a major conflict with another popular mod, contact me and I’ll see if I can release a patch to make mine compatible. 

Bugs:
None that I know of.

Cheats:
Use the giveitem cheat to receive the following items.
- sa_ope_doo (OpenDoor Armband)
- sa_ori_arm (Orientation Armband)

Contact Information:
You can email me at staradmiral@hotmail.com or you can find me hanging out at the Holowan Labs at various times of the day under the user name Star Admiral. I’ll do my best to get back to you ASAP.

Credits:
A million thanks go out to all the people at the Holowan Labs who have graciously helped me with any modding problems I have had with KOTOR or TSL. Special thanks go out to DarthParametric, RedHawke, stoffe, ChAiNz.2da, TriggerGod, and Ferc Kast, without whom I could not have learned as much as I have in so short a time. For this mod, I must also thank HK-42 for prompting me to start this mod and for helping me test the various orientations for accuracy. Thanks again. =)

Terms of Use:
Naturally, you can modify these files for your personal use. You also may use them in any mod if you would like, but please give me credit. That's all I ask.
