About This File
This mod allows those playing as a female character to romance Bastila, an option available only for male player characters in the original release of the game. The female version of the romance will play out just as the male version, through talking to Bastila as your player gains experience and by choosing certain dialogue options. The romance can also be ended just as the male romance can, by choosing or avoiding certain dialogue options.
Lines will still vary depending on the player's gender; for example, Bastila will not call a female player a man, nor compare her to any man.
I have executed this by removing certain lines, or certain parts of lines, that lacked an alternate take for a female player, and in some cases voided the existing female versions in favor of the romance lines. I'm not entirely satisfied with all of these changes - in particular, the male version still has a lot more dialogue, and I don't think that's fair - but my priority was to make everything flow naturally, with minimal editing.
Also, this should not interfere with the Carth or Juhani romances; you should be able to go through those as well Bastila's if you so desire. The game does not take issue with it.
The romance system is surprisingly straightforward, compared to later BioWare games. As such, I may consider adding a bit of complexity in future updates.

This mod patches the following:
- k_hbas_dialog.dlg (Bastila's global dialogue)
This mod may not be compatible with any other mods that edit those files.
This mod also installs the following new VO:
This mod will not be compatible with any mods utilizing those names for WAV or LIP files.
This mod patches the modules lev_m40aa, unk_m44acd, and sta_m45ac and may not be compatible with other mods that affect those areas. TSLPatcher is utilized for better compatibility, but there's never any guarantee. This mod must be installed AFTER any non-TSLPatcher mods that edit those areas.
This mod includes bug fixes for Bastila's romance scripts on the Unknown World and the Star Forge. You should NOT install another mod to fix these problems, as that would override this mod's changes that remove the gender checks.
