A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION
FILE NAME: KotOR 1 Improved Party Outfits.zip
LATEST VERSION: 1.0.1
CONTACT: E-mail email@example.com, or message to Leilukin on Deadly Stream
This mod adds six new items with unique properties for each of the human and humanoid party members in KotOR 1, namely Bastila, Carth, Mission, Canderous, Juhani and Jolee. Said party members will automatically have these unique outfits equipped when they join your party. Each of these outfits also has its own custom inventory icon.
In addition, when Carth joins your party, he will equip two of his unique blaster pistols instead of just one of them and one regular blaster pistol.
If you want to see your party members appear in their default outfits and those outfits being more useful in combat throughout the course of the game, this mod is for you.
This mod was intended for the party members’ unique outfits to be usable in combat throughout the entire game. Therefore, the properties of these items may be overpowered, especially in the early game. I make no promises to make a “balanced” version of this mod, because I play the KotOR games for the story and characters and not combat. If gameplay and combat balance are very important to you, this mod is not for you.
This mod was inspired by jonathan7's Party Clothing mod. Party Clothing was also what inspired me to make my TSL Improved Party Outfits mod. I eventually decided to make my own version on the mod concept for KotOR 1 as well. I set up my mod to be installed via TSLPatcher to maximize compatibility with other mods.
2. USAGE NOTES:
For the best experience with this mod, it's recommended to have a completely new KotOR 1 playthrough.
If you want to add these improved party member outfits manually via the cheat console or KotOR Savegame Editor, here are the item codes:
- Bastila’s Robe - llk_bastrobe
- Canderous’s Jacket - llk_candjkt
- Carth’s Pilot Suit - llk_carthsuit
- Jolee’s Robe - llk_jolrobe
- Juhani’s Robe - llk_juhrobe
- Mission’s Jacket - llk_missjkt
Extract the KotOR 1 Improved Party Outfits.zip you downloaded to anywhere you like, as long as it is not within the KoOR directory. Run Install.exe, point the installer to your KotOR directory and let the installer do its magic.
NOTE: If you already have the .utc files of the human and humanoid party members in your Override folder (the file names are p_[party member name].utc), when you install this mod a new folder named "backup" will be created in the same folder as the installer. Do not delete the folder or any of the files within the folder if you are planning on uninstalling this mod.
Go to your Override folder, delete the .tga files starting from ia_cloths_201.tga to ia_cloths_206.tga and the .uti files with the "llk_" prefix (without the quotation marks).
If a "backup" folder was created when you installed this mod, go to the "backup" folder, cut and paste any .utc. file(s) from the folder and paste the file(s) in your Override folder. If no backup folder was created, simply delete p_bastilla.utc, p_cand.utc, p_carth.utc, p_jolee.utc, p_juhani.utc and p_mission.utc from your Override folder.
5. KNOWN ISSUES:
None currently known. If you find any other bugs or problems, please let me know.
6. MOD COMPATIBILITY:
This mod will likely conflict with any other mods that modify any of the following files, especially if the other mod also modifies the party members' starting armor:
If you want to use any other mods that modify the above files, AND the other mod is installed by putting any of the above files in Override folder, such as Weapons of the Old Republic (WotOR) or KotOR Saber Replacement (KSR) 2022, you need to install my mod AFTER the other mod.
If you are using KotOR 1 Community Patch (K1CP), you need to my mod AFTER K1CP.
If you want to use both KotOR 1 Restoration (K1R) and this mod, do not install the “Juhani and Jolee Original Clothes” add-on of K1R.
This mod is compatible with my Jolee in Unique Outfit Introduction as this mod does not affect Jolee’s introduction on Kashyyyk before he joins your party. I recommend installing both mods to maximize immersion.
This mod is not compatible with any other mod that modifies the party members' starting armor or clothing when they join your party.
This mod should be compatible with any reskin mods for the party member's default outfits, unless they edit the armor slot in aforementioned .utc files of the party members.
You may modify this mod for your personal use. However if you want to use any files from this mod for your own mod, please ask for my permission before releasing your mod. If I give you permission for it, I request that you credit me when you release your mod. Thank you.
