About This File
This mod adds proper ears to male Twi'lek heads in KOTOR I.
In the vanilla game, male Twi'lek heads had no geometry for ears, leaving them as flat textures on the head. For every other head in the game that has ears, those ears stick out. After noticing this inconsistency, I decided to take a shot at fixing it. This mod makes an additional adjustment by fixing the eyelid origins, so that they no longer clip through the face when blinking.
It may be a small-scale change, but given the frequency of Twi'lek NPCs, it's a nice visual improvement that keeps consistency with other character models in the game.
There's also a KOTOR II version available here.

What's New in Version 1.2.1 See changelog
Made significant improvements to the UV mapping & geometry of ears, plus edited the origin of eyelids so they no longer clip through the face when blinking. Also removed the option for Twi'lek corpses to have ears because it was redundant.
Note that this mod never had a version 1.2.0 & this release is numbered 1.2.1 is to keep consistency with the TSL version of this mod.
