Recruitable Kay is a mod that replaces Juhani with a young human Jedi Knight named Kay. She has been searching for information about the Czerka Corp on Tatooine as per her orders from the Jedi Council, however if you talk to her you’ll find out that she feels her mission is a waste of time and that she’s more than happy to join you on your mission to stop Malak and save the galaxy from the Sith threat.

Kay is a level 6 Jedi Sentinel when you are first able to pick her up on Tatooine. It is recommended that you kill Juhani on Dantooine if you’re concerned about everything meshing well together in the plot, otherwise Juhani will simply disappear. If you’re like me, though, you can just pretend that you stuffed her into one of the Ebon Hawk’s cargo compartments so you didn’t have to hear her complain anymore!

Kay has a fully-tiered dialogue set, just like Bastila, Carth, and the rest of your party. Each time you level up she will have new things to talk about, and eventually her dialogue will lead you into an in-depth multiple-planet quest. She will also express her feelings on various events as they occur throughout your travels, just as the rest of your party would, and she will accompany you to the Rakatan Temple on the Unknown World just as Juhani would have.


NOTE: YES, this mod is compatible with the popular Brotherhood of Shadow Mod. Install my mod first, then install BoS for greatest possible compatibility. Please see the installation section below for a list of files that are necessary for Recruitable Kay to work. Anything else you can safely allow BoS to overwrite.

.::TESTIMONIALS::.


The following testimonials are real comments from real players that were taken from the original download page’s comments as well as e-mails I’ve received over the years:

This mod is the best mod I have ever seen.


I’ve been playing your mod and enjoying the addition of Kay so far -- particularly the fact that she is voiced and interjects into events like the other npcs.


I’d just like to say that I downloaded your recruitable Kay mod for Starwars KOTOR and it’s amazing. I love the detail and the voices.


Just want to congratulate for your awesome mod (the best of this year from what I’ve tested), nice voice (it’s yours??) and very pretty Jedi hmm those eyes…


I’ve been wondering for years if someone could add a mod with real voices and now I’m really looking forward to Kay.


I didn’t know it could work with BoS too. I look forward to playing with all these but yours most of all because hey, brand new character with in-depth story and dialogue! Danke :)


Let me say that that I love you mod, it’s brilliant.

I just simply love this mod and now Juhani is permanently being replaced by Kay for my game.


Am I the only person hearing the choir of angels in the background? About the best mod of the year controversy, we have to look at the detail of this mod. This person is a WHOLE new character with quests, voice, character reaction.


Wow, stunning. *insta-download*


Oomph… Inyri! You have a sexy voice… ;) lol


Great mod. I’m happy at least somebody finally took the gamble and went with custom dialogue. It’s something I’ll be working with in the future for sure.


GREAT work Inyri your work is always amazing and I love the fact that you added custom voiced dialog you are truly phenomenal modder.


Merry Christmas to me! And everyone else who has been waiting for this I suppose. I am so glad you got this out and am downloading it now. I want your genius modding babies… lol


WOW, this recruitment mod is GREAT. True proof that taking your time to do something right pays off. Awesome work Inyri.


Muhaha, stayed up all night playing it. And damn Inyri, you do know how to make a awesome mod. Hope you do further projects in the future and have a safe happy Christmas.


I’ve been playing it for awhile now and as far as I’ve gotten I have to say this is easily one of the most well done mods of the year. This gave me a whole new reason to play through KotOR once again and I thank you for that. I’ll keep an eye out for your future mods. This easily gets a 10/10. Godlike.


What a wonderful enhancement for KOTR, and so nice that it has full voiced dialog, thanks so much for this gift.


Congratulations, you’ve made me want to play the first KotOR again. Damn you… *downloads* damn you and your awesomeness.


Amazing work its the best recruitment mod for KotOR ever made in my opinion good job Inyri you do amazing work!!!


Thanks to Inyri for this great mod, and that’s coming from a Juhani fan!


I just finished a playthrough with Kay! I loved how she and female Revan became friends. She quickly became a favorite companion. Did you do her eye recolor? Beautifully done! I wish I could get a green recolor for my PC that looked that pretty. Kay’s lightsaber hilt was great.



.::INSTALLATION::.


This mod uses the TSLPatcher for easy installation. After running TSLPatcher.exe simply follow the included instructions. NOTE: Three files are set to overwrite in the case that you have these files in your override folder already, as they are necessary for the plotline to progress. These three files are bastila.dlg, man26_sitharg.dlg and tat17_darkjedi01.dlgif you have mods that alter these files already please contact me and I will see if I can work with you to make the two mods compatible with each other!


The rest of the dialogue files included are either custom dialogues or are not necessary to the plot. If you have mods that alter those dialogues already and you would like to keep your old versions of the dialogues you may do so. Keep in mind, however, that if you choose not to install any of the included dialogues you will run the risk of hearing Juhani’s voice instead of Kay’s during that particular dialogue.


RECOMMENDATION: I recommend using a clean override folder for this. To keep your other mods, simply rename your current override folder (rename it override1, for instance) then make a new override folder and install the Recruitable Kay mod. Then add any additional mods you would like. This will make uninstallation as painless as possible, since you can then just delete the new override folder and rename the backup override folder and get all your old mods back! Make note that this is useful as well if you like to switch between mod setups often.



.::KNOWN BUGS::.


There are only a couple of known bugs that I have not fixed. The biggest bug is after the fight with Malak you may trigger an incorrect dialogue. The reason for this is because BioWare gave two dialogues the same name. One of them I needed to alter, but since the dialogue then goes in the Override folder the game considers it an override for both dialogues. The dialogue in question is lev40_carth.dlg — this plays before the team is captured when Carth is talking on the Ebon Hawk as well as after you defeat Malak for the second time on the Leviathan. I have included a work-around — before facing Malak copy the lev40_carth.dlg file included in the “bug fix” folder to your override folder (overwrite the one that’s there). This will ensure that you trigger the correct dialogue.


The other bug is on the Unknown Planet when visiting The One’s encampment. The cameras are bugged, but it is a graphical bug only and will not impede gameplay. At this time no fix has been completed and will likely not be pursued


I am relatively certain there are probably some bugs I have not found, simply due to the scope of this mod. If you find any, please consult the “Report Bugs” section of this read-me near the bottom.



.::TIPS AND INFORMATION::.


***SPOILER ALERT***


THIS IS A WALKTHROUGH — DO NOT READ THIS SECTION IF YOU WANT TO FIGURE THINGS OUT FOR YOURSELF


Show »

This section is for those who want to get the most out of this mod and not miss anything. I labeled it a spoiler alert, but I really will try not to give away too much of the plot. It will simply list major locations and where to go, but I won’t tell you what happens.


WARNING: This mod is designed to function properly only if you have not already reached Dantooine. Certain characters will only spawn the first time you visit! If they do not spawn you can not properly finish the quest.


First of all, I recommend hitting Tatooine as soon as you are able to leave Dantooine. It doesn’t matter if you do that Star Map first, however you should at least pick up Kay so that she has plenty of time to level up so you can finish her quest line before the Leviathan. You must finish her quest before visiting the Leviathan or it can not be completed! It’s not a total bust if you don’t finish it, but you won’t get the XP for it and you won’t get the rewards. I’ve played through multiple times myself and, despite being paranoid, I’ve never had a problem finishing it in time.


Below is my recommended order of planets:

♦ Tatooine

♦ Kashyyyk

♦ Manaan

♦ Korriban


Don’t forget to speak to Kay each time you level up! She will have a new dialogue after each player level-up. If she doesn’t that means you’ve progressed far enough to start the quest. At this point go to Dantooine! When you first arrived at Dantooine you will notice that two new characters spawned with seemingly no purpose — a Jedi named Andamir and a Jedi Master named Lynara.


At this point you need to speak to Andamir with Kay in your party. They will have a short discussion at which point the quest is explained. Should you choose to do the quest (and let’s face it, that’s probably one of the reasons you downloaded the mod!) you are sent back to Tatooine in search of a Mandalorian. You may have noticed him earlier since he spawned before you even recruited Kay! He is located near the gate to the Dune Sea. You can now talk to him.


I won’t explain the rest of the quest, since the rest is very straightforward (you’re told exactly where to go). Just keep in mind that the last person you need to speak to is the Jedi Master I mentioned earlier. This should all be easily completable before getting the Manaan Star Map (or whichever world you elected to be your third Star Map). Just remember to return to Dantooine before you actually obtain that particular map.


Also if you feel the spoils for this quest are not good enough for all that effort you went to, please let me know your suggestions and I will consider them.



.::REPORTING BUGS AND SUGGESTIONS::.


I’m not naive. I’m certain there are still bugs in this mod, and I’m more than willing to correct them! If you find any you can contact me with any of the information listed below:


E-MAIL: admin@inyri.info

MSN: melissa@filefront.com

STEAM: inyriforge

WEBSITE: http://www.inyri.info


E-mailing me bug reports will be best so that I have a hard copy of the information, so if you wish to contact me via instant messenger you may want to do either of those as well. When you report a bug please format your e-mail or post as follows, so I don’t accidentally delete it as spam:


SUBJECT: Recruitable Kay Bug Report

BODY: Include your nickname, your preferred e-mail address and any other means of contact, as detailed a description of the bug as possible (description of the bug, when and where it occured, whether or not you could duplicate the bug, and the severity of the bug, such as whether or not it impeded gameplay), and if applicable some screenshots of the bug.


In addition to bug reports you can also send me suggestions for the mod if you like. I don’t guarantee I’ll implement them, but I’ll certainly take them under advisement and give them some consideration!



.::DISTRIBUTION AND USAGE NOTES::.


You may not distribute this archive to any other site. Because of the amount of time and effort that went into this mod, if you would like to use any part of it in your own mod I would appreciate it if you would contact me first. You may, however, use the source scripts in any way you like without my permission. You’re probably better off asking a real scripter for help, though.



.::CREDITS AND THANKS::.


I have various people to credit and thank for this. First I would like to thank everyone at Holowan Laboratories, where I received so much help (whether they knew it or not!). I would also like to thank the staff of KotORFiles.com for their unwavering support and input. Also thanks to all the other people that offered input and suggestions along the way. After a year and a half you are too many to name, but you all know who you are and you’re all special folks in my book!


I am, however, pleased to mention my beta testers by name. If you find any bugs, blame them.

1. INTRODUCTION

This is a mod I've been working on since roughly last summer (summer '06). That means it's well over a year since I started, and so a lot of blood, sweat, and tears have been put into this mod. It's been through multiple full-playthrough beta tests, has taken input from various testers, implemented features I never thought I'd be able to manage, and has actually made my gaming experience better... and I'm the modder! I always found Juhani to be a bland character, her plotline boring, and her model annoying and aesthetically unpleasing. I simply didn't like to look at her, listen to her, or work with her. Since she's one of the four Jedi in your party, and one of three including yourself at the end of the game, this caused problems since I didn't like to use her, but like to use only Jedi at the Star Forge. My solution? Create a new Jedi character to replace her that fit in with the story, had a more engaging personality, and was someone I might actually want tagging along with me.
