A Mod for Star Wars Knights of The Old Republic
1.0.0 Release Date: 23.01.2023
Please install the K1 Community Patch FIRST before this mod!
Simply click on the TSLPatcher.exe, click install and sit back and watch the TSLPatcher do its magic.
Kotor 2 has a few popular heads which were cut from the final game, they include: Saedhe's unique head, Hussef's unique head and the "Jedi Master 4" head which was used for Kaevee.
Whilst these heads were restored in TSLRCM, no such restoration of unused heads exists for K1... until now!
This mod will present up to 5 restored faces which you will see across the Kotor galaxy, they include:
1) "Sith Apprentice 1 Head": In-game, the armored Sith Apprentice's use the 2nd Sith Apprentice Head variant whilst the 1st head variant is neglected.
As only a texture exists for this head, I had to modify this head's texture to hide the mapping for the scar which is present for the 2nd Sith Apprentice Head
but not this one. This new Sith Apprentice head is used by the Taris Sith Govenor, the Dark Jedi in the Manaan Hangar, the Dark Jedi Master trio in the Leviathan Command Deck
and the Lehon Sith Master.
2) "Dirty Commoner Head Variant Male": This head is a variant of the classic Batu-Rem generic head with a dirty, scratched up reskin.
This head will be used by the Infected Outcasts who you can cure in the Undercity.
3) "Dirty Commoner Head Variant Female": This head is a variant of the generic head used by Sarna with a dirty, scratched up reskin to match the male variant.
This skin is special as it was never included in either the PC or the XBOX versions of Kotor, so how did I get my hands on this texture?
When Aspyr released Kotor for the Nintendo Switch, they accidentally replaced the generic blonde white female head with this dirty head variant instead, resulting in
characters like Ice using this head texture instead of their usual blonde head. To restore this head for it's intended purpose (as a dirty head variant), I had the texture ripped
from the Switch and ported to PC.
From my observation, the Nintendo Switch version of Kotor uses an upscaled version of the XBOX textures upgrading their textures from 256x256 (the standard XBOX quality)
to 1024x1024 resolution (This is why the graphics on the Nintendo Switch look so strange).
The skin included in this mod has been downsized to 256x256 to match the texture quality of the male head variant which WAS included in the PC game files.
This head will be used by the Infected Outcasts who you can
cure in the Undercity.
4) "Asian Commoner Head Variant Male": This head is listed in the game files amongst the other generic commoner heads, it can be assumed this head was scrapped and it's model became the basis
of the PHMA01 player head. As of right now, this head will be used by Tanis Venn!
Why Tanis? Well, his unique appearance isn't really that 'unique'. His vanilla appearance uses the generic Tatooine Asian male head with a smuggler's jacket, by giving Tanis this previously unused
head it makes Tanis' appearance a proper 'unique' appearance.
5) "Asian Commoner Head Variant Female": This head is listed in the game files amongst the other generic commoner heads, it can be assumed this head was scrapped and it's model became the basis
of the PHFA02 player head. As of right now, this head will be used by the Czerka Protocol Officer!
Why the Czerka Protocol Officer? Well, her unique appearance isn't really that 'unique'. Her vanilla appearance uses the generic Tatooine Asian female head with the Czerka clothing texture
locked in by default, by giving the Czerka Protocol Officer this previously unused head it makes her appearance a proper 'unique' appearance.
Please refer to the screenshots on this mod's Deadlystream download page for a visual reference.
This mod shouldn't have bugs but if there is Just PM me on Deadlystream.
The Sith Apprentice head might have a minor graphical error on it's right cheek, with the original texture this minor graphical error appears much worse and my modifications to the texture
was done to make this error less noticable. You can't really notice any graphical error unless you really keep your eyes peeled for it so you probably won't even notice it.
Please report any incompatibilities!
Will be incompatible with any mod which adds "N_SithAppren01_H.tga" or "N_SithAppren01_H.tpc".
If you installed a mod which has "N_SithAppren01_H.tga", even if it's an AI Upscale, it will most likely restore the previously fixed graphical error on the Sith Apprentice's cheek.
Do NOT claim credit for this mod and do not use assets from this mod without my permission.
SpaceAlex: For modifying the "N_SithAppren01_H" texture in his K1 Enhancement Pack mod, this mod was a basis for my own fixed texture!
Jacqylfrost: For porting the infamous female dirty commoner head texture from the Nintendo Switch, without his work this component wouldn't have been possible!

Aspyr: For including the female dirty commoner head texture on the Nintendo Switch!
Fred Tetra: For Kotor Tool!
