TSL Restoration Project: Work in Progress

Recommended Posts

We'd like to announce that the TSL Restoration Project now has a shiny new website!

 

If you're not familiar with the project, we've been working on restoring the cut content for about a month now. Among other things, we're extending the ending, restoring the droid factory, and tweaking and restoring other fun dialogues and cutscenes.

 

Why? Because we enjoyed the game greatly and we'd like to see it in a more complete state. We think that it would benefit greatly from the return of many of the removed scenes and areas.

 

This is not an officially-sponsored project. We currently know of no other efforts to restore this missing content. The vast majority of the material we will be using will be just as it was intended to be as far as we can tell from developer notes. However, some sections have been tweaked and edited in order to form a more cohesive storyline.

 

Behold our shiny new forums!

Terrific stuff.

 

I can't wait to see the results.

 

The modding community continues to exceed my expectations, with the scale of its ambition.

Very nice site. Looks like excellent work so far.

 

Already bookmarked the site for future reference.

 

Thanks for making an effort for making the lost material available in some form when it sadly was not included in the game. Your efforts are appreciated.

 

Influence gained! :)

This looks absolutely awesome. I can't wait to see this when it's finished. o:) LA will be put to shame >_<


War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

--John Stewart Mill--

 

"Victory was for those willing to fight and die. Intellectuals could theorize until they sucked their thumbs right off their hands, but in the real world, power still flowed from the barrel of a gun.....you could send in your bleeding-heart do-gooders, you could hold hands and pray and sing hootenanny songs and invoke the great gods CNN and BBC, but the only way to finally open the roads to the big-eyed babies was to show up with more guns."

We're not able to post even a rough estimate yet - which isn't to say that this is going to take years and years, just that we're not sure of how long it'll all take yet and don't want to make false claims.

An eager thumbs up for this! :)

 

I've been away from the boards awhile, deep in meditation, to avoid succumbing to the dark side of depression and nurse my hope that something would be done. >_<

 

I eagerly anticipate this fan mod with baited breath!

Will we need to start a new game to enjoy this mod? Not that that's a bad thing... I'm sure I'm going to complete the game in a months's time! :)

Hi. I'm new here. Well, not new really--been lurking for quite a while...

 

Anyway, this project sounds really good. I've already beaten KoTOR II once, and from looking through the guide, it's obvious there's a lot that was cut and/or left out. Come to think of it, I wonder if the two guys who wrote the guide actually played the game, since the version they wrote about was the way it was supposed to be before the cuts.

 

Btw, Jellybelly asked a good question: Will we need to start a new game for these fixes to work correctly?

I will definitely start a new game when the mod is available, even if its not a requirement. I only have beaten the game for 1 time so far cause of the annoying ending. But it seems the mod will give some more sense to the choices the player makes in the game (different endings ect.)

 

I can't wait to reinstall the game - the "COMPLETED" game

;)

Most of the fixes will be transparent..they'll take immediate effect as soon as you start the game. However, if you've already played past that point in the game, you may miss something we've added. So an early save or new game is recommended to get the full effect. I'll be able to be more precise once we can list all the areas in the game we've worked on.

I would like to offer my talents to the effort. Since I have no talents, instead I will offer my support.

 

Nice work to everyone involved! I predict seeing The Restoration Project before we see an official patch.

Oh, just in general, I'd like to mention that it's fine to mention the site and project elsewhere: but pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase do not link to it from any high-traffic sites. Our bandwidth is not quite yet prepared for slashdotting.

 

edit: And ideally, we'd have the project out after the patch so that we don't have any conflicts between the mod and the patch.

So, in that case, we'll never get it, right? Also, hate to ask another question about the content but is the Challenging Darth Traya going to be part of it?

Looks great (w00t)

 

What are your release plans (not release dates) ?

 

Are you going to release it in parts as each self contained part of the project finishes, or are you going to release it as one big mod once you feel there is nothing more to be accomplished with it ?

 

(sort of hoping for releasing individual parts as they are finished :"> )
