This mod changes the KotOR 1 NPC Xor's appearance by making him a human with a unique look to make him different from other human NPCs.
This mod is a successor to my Human Xor Restoration mod, which restores Xor's original appearance as a human in the Xbox version of KotOR 1. Human Xor Restoration has been included in the KotOR 1 Community Patch (K1CP) with my permission.
I make mods to make Xor a human, because I have always found it jarring that Xor openly makes anti-alien comments despite being a nonhuman himself ("You Jedi act all prim and proper, but inside you must feel the same way I do about the lesser, nonhuman species"), not to mention later I found out that Xor was actually a human in the Xbox version of KotOR. I change Xor into a human, so it would be consistent with his in-game dialogue and anti-alien nature.
Human Xor Unique Look not only changes Xor into a human, but also make him have a unique look instead of a generic NPC look like his appearance in the Xbox version of KotOR 1 and Human Xor Restoration. Therefore, this mod is for players who believe it makes more sense for Xor to be a human, while also want Xor to have a unique look to stand out from the other human NPCs.
I made this unique look of Xor by utilizing some assets from SpaceAlex's K1 Enhancement Pack modder's resource. The pack contains a redesign for Xor, but I decided to create my own redesign of Xor, by reskinning one of the NPC textures from SpaceAlex's pack and using the male commoner head as the base for Xor's head model.
Extract the Human Xor Unique Look.zip you downloaded to anywhere you like, as long as it is not within the KotOR directory. Run Install.exe, point the installer to your KotOR directory, where swkotor.exe is located, and let the installer do its job.
I also provide am upscaled version of the texture as an optional installation. After installing the main part of this mod, go to the "Optional - Upscaled Texture" folder, drop the files into the Override folder in your directory and overwrite N_XorMiddlH.tpc when prompted.
NOTE: When you install this mod, a new folder named "backup" may be created by the installer in the same folder as the installer. Do not delete the folder or the file within the folder if you are planning on uninstalling this mod.
If no backup folder was created when you installed this mod, go to the Override folder in your KotOR directory, and delete the following files:
If a backup folder was created when you installed this mod, go to the backup folder, cut and paste any files from the folder and paste the file in the Override folder in your KotOR directory, then delete the rest of the aforementioned files that did not have a backup copy.
4. KNOWN ISSUES:
None currently known. If you find any bugs or problems, please let me know.
5. MOD COMPATIBILITY:
This mod is not compatible with any other mods that change or modify Xor's head.
If you want to use KotOR 1 Community Patch (K1CP) along with this mod, you must install this mod after K1CP to override K1CP's restoration of Xor's Xbox appearance.
This mod is compatible with KotOR 1 Restoration (K1R).
You may use this mod as you see fit, including showing it in screenshots or making it compatible with your mod. However, both SpaceAlex and I should be creadited accordingly, with SpaceAlex being credited for the original assets from K1 Enhancement Pack. Do not release your mods containing modified files from my mod without my permission. Thank you.
