MANAAN MERC OVERHAUL for Star WarsTM - Knights of the Old Republic
by garm343

Version: 1.0.0 completed 9/9/20

This mod makes changes to the appearance of the various mercenaries the player will encounter while on Manaan. It adds armor to the mercenaries who appear unarmored in the vanilla version of the game and changes the armor visible on each merc to one that is appropriate for that merc’s culture. For example, the Mandalorian merc will now wear Mandalorian armor and the Echani mercs will wear Echani armor. This mod also changes the faces and hair of the Echani mercs so that they now look like Echani (white hair, silvery eyes, and pale complexions). The stun baton carried by the Twi’lek merc in the underwater base is replaced with a heavy blaster instead. This mod does not alter the Iridorian merc’s appearance as he is already wearing his armor.

Double-click on the installer icon and when prompted direct it to your game folder (“swkotor”, in most cases). After selecting the folder, the mod will install automatically.

This mod is compatible with any other mod that does not share the same .utc, .tga, .mdl, and .mdx file names as those found in this mod’s tslpatchdata folder. If any such files are present in your Override folder, this mod will not install properly.

This mod is good garm343 but would it be possible to use the Echani head skins from this mod by redob41 Here in your mod instead ?

@MadMax4q2 I'm glad you liked the mod. I can certainly see the appeal of @redrob41 's Echani mod. It's certainly much more detailed and has more variety than my more basic one. However, as @StellarExile pointed out, I can't use another person's mod in one of my own without permission from that mod's author. If @redrob41 would like to collaborate on integrating his mod into mine, I would be willing to discuss the possibility, but otherwise I'm afraid it's out of the question. Sorry.

Good job! You have implemented an idea that, unfortunately, I did not have time to publish in a timely manner. I intended to borrow (with the permission of the author of the modification) the heads of the echani race, wearing them in light Echani armor. The Mandalorian was supposed to be wearing the appropriate helmet-less armor worn by Canderos in kotor 2. for this, the zabrak wanted to portate the altered head and body of Bao-Dur, and put a mask on it (for the original voice is muffled in the helmet).
