This mod alters the (frankly terrible) holograms used in the cutscenes prior to boarding the Star Forge at the end of KOTOR to bring them more in to line with the style seen in the movies and TSL. For some unknown reason, Bioware decided to go with a weird texture-based approach that simultaneously looks both horrible and nothing like how Star Wars holograms are typically depicted.
Admiral Dodonna hologram model completely replaced with a new one based on her regular appearance. No longer has incorrect mirrored torso UVs. Dodonna model split into sub-meshes for optimal hierarchical occlusion. Vandar model given some mesh tweaks to remove some intersection issues. Models now use mesh-based transparency rather than additive texture blending. Custom keyframes added to animations to facilitate mesh-based alpha approach and added meshes. New animated textures for Vandar and Dodonna created based on their regular appearance textures. Minor alteration to one shot during the DS cutscene to prevent Dodonna leaping out of frame while Vandar is speaking. Known Issues:
Because meshes do not self-occlude, there are some artefacts during certain shots. For example, seeing the neck through the chin. Acknowledgements:

This mod adds Republic officer uniforms styled after Saul Karath’s appearance in the KOTOR comics, ported from TOR. Male and female officers get a generic uniform, while Admiral Dodonna gets an admiral outfit that matches the one used in the companion mod for TSL. Her hologram appearance also uses this outfit, with alterations to bring it in line with the appearance of holograms in the movies and TSL. Additionally, Master Vandar’s hologram gets a movie-style upgrade as well for the sake of visual consistency, as per the previously released Movie-Style Holograms for End Game Cutscenes mod.
With the switch of both danii-chi's Dodonna’s Transmission mod and this mod to module injection, install order should no longer be an issue. Acknowledgements:

This is something I fished out of my junk pile that I thought someone may find a use for. It is Mission's head model that has had the UVs adjusted to fit her face and lekku onto a single texture (because I am lazy, just her face and body texture side-by-side). This allows for DS transitions, which is not possible with the vanilla Mission head because it uses two different textures.
The model is supplied with placeholder textures (colour shifted to test DS transitions), temp portraits, and a full TSLPatcher setup. All it needs is some new textures/portraits and it is ready to go.
The revised version includes an optional head mesh with the lekku UVs scaled to make better use of the available UV space, including revised placeholder texture. UV templates are now included for both versions.
This mod changes the Dark Jedi appearance (male and female) from a skin tight jumpsuit to the TSL Knight robes (ported to K1 by JCarter). The hood and head of the original models have been retained, with the hood being worked into the torso mesh to make it a more natural looking extension of the cloak. Two extra masked head variants have also been added, ported from the TSL Dark Jedi/Assassins. The Dark Jedi you encounter throughout the game have had their appearances diversified between these three versions, along with swapping a few genders here and there. Additionally, the three Dark Jedi masters on the Star Forge have been given unique appearances.
This mod takes advantage of the port of TSL’s robes added by @JCarter426’s mod “JC's Fashion Line I: Cloaked Jedi Robes for K1”. As such, that mod is a prerequisite. You must at the very least install the supermodels from JC's mod (S_FemaleXX/S_MaleXX), as this mod will not function correctly without those.
As mentioned, the mod relies on JC's robes mod. As such, any other mod that alters the supermodels will not be compatible unless based on his supermodels. The mod changes the base vanilla appearances of the four male and one female Dark Jedi. It will not be compatible with any mods that alter those. The mod makes extensive module changes. Make sure that any mods that brute force MOD file installs, like NPC Overhaul or K1R, are installed first. Acknowledgements:

This mod replaces the model used for the Rakatan hologram to bring it more in-line with the style seen in the movies and TSL. It also now has lipsync, unlike the original model. Additionally, the placeable Rakatan holo statue has been changed, swapping the original 2D billboard for a 3D model, and again bringing the appearance in-line with other holograms.
As of v1.1, the hologram in the Elder's compound has now been moved above the computer to an added hologram projector rather than standing in the hallway, and the static camera reoriented to suit. Pre-emptively compatible with changes to this module coming in v1.8 of the K1 Community Patch.
To install, run TSLPatcher.exe. You can safely install if you already have v1.0 without removing any files. You will, however, need a save before entering the Elder's compound for the first time in order to see the changes take effect.
During testing a crash was discovered during the Kashyyyk Star Map sequence. I believe this has been completely resolved, but if you encounter any such issues then you may need to add the "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1" line under [Graphics Options] in swkotor.ini The original holo statue uses a billboard VFX which always faces the camera. As such, the directional facing of the placeable is irrelevant. The switch to a 3D model results in a static facing, I set this to match the facing of the placeables used in the South Beach Elder's compound, but if this placeable is used elsewhere it may end up facing the wrong direction. If anyone spots such a case, let me know in the comments. Acknowledgements:

N.B.: THIS MOD IS A PATCH FOR THE “FIXED HOLOGRAM MODELS AND ADMIRALTY REDUX FOR TSLRCM” MOD. YOU MUST INSTALL THAT FIRST AS IT IS A PREREQUISITE FOR THIS MOD.
This mod adds Republic officer uniforms styled after Saul Karath’s appearance in the KOTOR comics, ported from the Old Republic MMO. Admirals Cede and Onasi both get uniforms that match the one used for Admiral Dodonna in the companion mod for K1, while male and female officers get generic uniforms.
Apparently some graphics cards may not render the hologram effect in conjunction with normal maps. I have added an optional patch which removes normal maps from the hologram models. If you experience this issue, download the "NM FIX" and copy the models and texture into your Override folder, overwriting when prompted. Acknowledgements:

This mod makes some minor changes to the forcefield in the Upper Shadowlands on Kashyyyk that gates access to the Lower Shadowlands. In the vanilla game, the forcefield is never actually disabled. Rather, the sound effect is simply turned off while the camera is pointed away from the forcefield, followed by an immediate area transition. It appears that Bioware did this due to issues with opening and closing doors via scripting. Additionally, there are no apparent controls for the forcefield, simply a frame and the field itself.
The level model containing the forcefield has been edited to add a computer panel, fix a gap above the forcefield via some adjustments to the frame geometry, move some vines out of camera shot during dialogue, and prevent grass planes from spawning too close to the ramp and clipping through. The dialogue that occurs when interacting with the field has had some scripts injected to play animations implying that the forcefield is being switched off via the control panel. Jolee will now approach the control panel when the dialogue starts, and will face it when disabling the field. The field itself is now shown shutting down before the party transitions to the Lower Shadowlands. Additionally, there appears to have been an error in leaving out a script on one of the nodes that would stop Jolee from saying "You aren't going to ask about it?" even if you had actually asked about it, which has been fixed.
The K1 Community Patch puts an edited version of the module's OnEnter script in the Override. After installing this mod, copy and paste k_pkas24aa_enter.ncs from the "K1CP Compatibility" folder into your Override folder, overwriting when prompted. K1CP's Tach gland fix is preserved in the provided compatibility file. If you are using a mod that forcibly overwrites MOD files (like NPC Overhaul), make sure you install that mod first. This mod will patch a pre-existing kas_m24aa.mod in the Modules folder. Not compatible with any other mod that replaces the same level model (m24aa_09a). Not compatible with any other mod that puts kas24_force_01.dlg in the Override folder (although such a case should be fixable with a compatibility patch). Known Issues:
In order to get the forcefield to close and function properly again after a level transition, it was necessary to resort to a hack function Bioware implemented for (presumably) the same issue they had with doors on the Yavin space station. In testing this has worked perfectly fine, however, the specifics of the hack are undocumented, so there may be edge cases I haven't encountered. If anyone experiences any issues with it, let me know. As you can see in the video, there's a subtitle error for one of Jolee's lines. Fixing it is better left to dedicated dialog.tlk overhaul. The mod doesn't touch the Lower Shadowlands module, so there's no active field or control panel on that side. Perhaps that could be an optional extra added in a future update. Acknowledgements:

This mod edits the models for the the female Class 7 (PFBF) and Class 9 (PFBH) armours. Along with Class 8 (PFBG), these three armours all feature a fabric collar. However, in the case of the F and H models this collar lacks any weighting to the neck bone, and due to its shape and height is prone to experiencing clipping of the neck with some head models. As the G armour apparently doesn't appear to suffer these issues, the collar from this armour (with some adjustment) was grafted onto the F/H bodies. The amount of clipping is somewhat variable depending on the head. It also seems far more prevalent on the small body size, but I have provided fixed models for all three body sizes.
The UVs of the armours are unchanged, so they are still fully compatible with all vanilla textures and any retexture mods that stick to that layout Obviously the mod will not be compatible with any other mod that replaces the same models Permissions:

This mod adds a new type of stimulant item that will remove status effects applied to the user. There is a bug with the game that in some instances causes effects such as Slow to be applied to the player/party (semi-)permanently, with no practical in-game way to remove them.
To use, simply add the "Cup of Caf" item (g_i_adrnaline025) to your inventory via KSE or console command. It will appear in the GUI alongside other stimulants like adrenals and is used in the same manner. Each item is single use and will remove ALL status effects currently applied to the user. This includes both positive and negative effects, so take care when you use it. It is intended as more of last resort bug fix item than for general use.
The droid-specifc companion mod, Droid Oil Bath, is available here.
Uses the "inject into thigh" animation like all stims/meds. I did attempt to disable that, but I suspect it is hardcoded. Acknowledgements:

This mod adds a new type of droid-only item that will remove any status effects applied to a droid. There is a bug with the game that in some instances causes negative effects such as Slow to be applied to party members (semi-)permanently, with no practical in-game way to remove them.
To use, simply add the "Droid Oil Bath" item (g_i_cmbtshot050) to your inventory via KSE or console command. When a droid is the active party member, the item will appear in the GUI slot for stimulants like adrenals and is used in the same manner. Each item is single use and will remove ALL status effects currently applied to the recipient. This includes both positive and negative effects, so take care when you use it. It is intended as more of last resort bug fix item than for general use.
The companion mod for meatbags, Cup of Caf, can be found here.
This mod makes some edits to the three scenes that occur during the escape from Taris sequence.
The first of these is the “Resume the bombardment” cutscene on the bridge of the Leviathan. During this scene, it’s possible that the player and party may spawn at the back of the bridge, being visible behind Malak. An edit to the module has been made to ensure that this doesn’t occur (technically they are still there, they have simply been moved out of sight). Additionally, two of the background crew NPCs appeared to be incorrectly positioned, so one of these was shunted sideways to better respect personal space.
The second is the “Incoming fighters!” cutscene in the Ebon Hawk’s cockpit, just prior to the turret mini-game. In the vanilla version of this cutscene, only Bastila and Carth were included. If your previous party included any members besides those two, they would just spawn in the hallway, possibly blocking the camera in the opening shot. This scene has been altered so that the entire party (at this point in the game) is now present in the cockpit. Mission and Canderous take the two passenger seats, with Zaalbar standing behind Mission and T3-M4 attending to astrogation duties.
The third scene is again in the Ebon Hawk’s cockpit, after the fighter mini-game. The order of pre-rendered cutscenes has been altered here. In the vanilla game, after destroying all the Sith fighters, you see a video of the Ebon Hawk doing a victory roll and then jumping to hyperspace, after which you have a conversation on the Ebon Hawk bridge with Bastila and Carth where it implies you have already landed on Dantooine. Yet following this conversation, you get a pre-rendered cutscene showing you approaching and landing on the planet. This was clearly done in order to mask the module loading in the background on the Xbox. The landing movie has now been moved in front of the conversation, and the skybox in the Ebon Hawk changed to Dantooine so that the sequence makes more logical sense. Additionally, Carth, Bastila, and the player all have any equipped weapons and masks/goggles hidden for the duration of the conversation.
STUNT_06 - Edited the module's IFO to offset the entry position and hide the player/party. STUNT_06 - Edited the module's GIT to offset the position of n_sithcomf001. Technically out of shot currently. STUNT_07 - Edited the module's onload script to spawn the entire party into the scene STUNT_07 - Created a scene-specific stunt animation for T3-M4 (computer use). STUNT_07 - Created a scene-specific stunt animation for Mission (sitting). STUNT_07 - Created a scene-specific stunt animation for Canderous (sitting). STUNT_07 - Created a scene-specific stunt animation for Zaalbar (standing/idle). STUNT_07 - Edited the scene-specific stunt animation for the player (m12aa_c07_char01.mdl/mdx) to make them run towards the turret ladder instead of past it. M12ab - Replaced the heartbeat and k_pebo_sthdeath2 - 7 scripts with modified versions to chain movies and switch Ebon Hawk skybox Override - Edited the Ebon Hawk cockpit model (m12aa_01p.mdl/mdx) to add an astromech-accessible panel below the galaxy map. Override - Edited ebo_bast_vision.dlg to change UnequipItems and UnequipHItem flags, and replace script k_ebn12_dantrans with a custom one. Override - Added custom script DP_TarisDanTran. Known Issues:
Bastila and Carth are still visibly "air typing". I did attempt to alter the camera animations to mask it, but this actually introduced more problems (stuttering camera moves and revealing previously hidden janky animations). This probably requires more extensive cockpit model alterations to address, but I'm unsure if that is worth the effort, or what effect this might have on other cutscenes. Alternatively, the stunt animations, primarily Bastila's, could be adjusted, but that probably requires someone more talented than me. The animations for Mission and Canderous aren't going to win any Oscars. Acknowledgements:

The core changes should be compatible with most other mods. Odds are fairly low someone else has made the specific changes to the stunt and turret modules that would clash with this. Changes to ebo_bast_vision.dlg are injected into any pre-existing copy of the file found in the Override folder. For example, K1 Restoration puts a copy of this file in the Override folder, so as long as you install K1R first, this mod will patch that file. If you subsequently install another mod that directly overwrites this file (again, such as K1R), then the changes will be lost. If you see weapons and masks equipped during the aforementioned post-vision dialogue then you know this is the case. This is a minor aesthetic change and does not affect the core content of the mod. If you wish to use ndix UR’s “Ebon Hawk K1 Fixes” mod, make sure you install that first, as this mod will overwrite the model for the cockpit. The cockpit-specific fixes from ndix UR’s mod have been incorporated into this version. In the same vein, any other mod that uses a modified version of the Ebon Hawk cockpit model (m12aa_01p.mdl/mdx) will result in a clash.
This mod makes some alterations to the arena in the Taris Upper City cantina. The primary change is the removal of the original low quality crowd sprites. In the vanilla game these are VFX nodes. It appears that Bioware's original intention was for these to be animated, but that was likely disabled due to performance issues on the Xbox. Subsequently, most of the sprites are lacking arms. Another issue is the scaling. The sprites are completely out of scale with the rest of the game world, appearing to be about half the height of an average human. This was possibly an attempt to skew the perspective, an attempt to make the arena look bigger than it actually is. The original sprites have been completely removed in favour of better quality crowd sprites ported from The Old Republic. Additionally, the bays housing the crowd have been resized in order to fit proper human-sized figures. To comply with recent local ordinance changes, transparisteel safety screens have been fitted for the crowd’s protection. Other minor changes include some texture swaps on the roof section and a dummy door model to hide some unsightly fog on the original.
Additionally, players participating in duels should now correctly face their opponent, and give an alignment-specific emote when they are announced. Opponents will now politely wait until their name is announced before giving their little fist pump. After some complaints by their union about a lack of proper medical services, defeated opponents are now healed back to full health post-match rather than being left to limp around. The view screens in the cantina have been upgraded to have a dynamic display of the current arena rankings. These will change as the player progresses up the ranks. The placeable computer screens have all had their positions adjusted so that they properly contact the walls they are supposed to be mounted to, and to align them with one another. Ajuur the Hutt’s dialogue has also had some minor surgery performed on it, to better deal with player and party positioning. Carth should now properly face Ajuur and the player during his relevant interjections, and won't be replying from across the room.
N.B. - Because alterations are made to the module's GIT file, the mod requires a save before entering the Upper City cantina for the first time. It is thus best suited for a new game. If you load a save after having entered, none of the screens will line up properly with the computer placeables.
The initial v1.0 of the mod used a version of TSLPatcher with a bug that caused it to incorrectly repack the MOD file, losing some scripts. For anyone that installed that version, please download and install the additional patch. It is safe to use this patch even if you installed a later version over the top, as it only reinstates the missing vanilla scripts. During the beginning of a duel you may briefly see the PC in a frozen pose. I have not been able to figure out the cause, but it appears to be a direct consequence of the measures taken to force the proper facing. If you initiate a conversation with Ajuur while the party is standing in the corner with the medpac bin, you will likely see them jump out of frame as they are moved to their now scripted fixed positions directly in front of the Hutt. That's an unfortunate consequence of the way it was handled, but the camera angle should mask the transition from pretty much anywhere else. While opponents are now healed after a match, I forgot to edit the script for the initial cutscene match between Duncan and Gerlon, so Duncan won't be healed until the start of his match against the player. I'll fix that in a future update.

This mod adjusts the model files for TSL's main menu so that they properly fill the full screen width of widescreen aspect ratios (i.e. 16:9, 16:10).
By default, the vanilla menus will have gaps in the background at each side of the screen. This is an inherent issue of the model being designed for 4:3 aspect ratios, so when a widescreen mod (or Aspyr's version) is used, areas of the model are exposed that were not anticipated by Obsidian. This mod addresses the issue by scaling the width of the background plane so that it spans the full width of the screen, and adding an additional VFX emitter to the bottom right of the screen so that the fog also spans the full width. Additionally, a minor correction is made to the Easter egg menu to properly apply the appropriate texture to the eyes, eyelids, teeth, and tongue of one of the Twi'leks, which are untextured in the vanilla version. See the attached pictures for an illustration of the changes.
I have edited all 6 menu models, but in practice only 4 of those are typically used in the game (although TSLRCM does also make use of the Easter egg menu). I've included them all to cover all/most eventualities.
Note that this mod primarily adjusts the menu models. No changes are made to the background texture, so any custom version of that texture will work with this mod as well. Per a user request, I have added adjusted logo images to address the stretching on those (they are not part of the model). Both vanilla and TSLRCM versions are included (permission to modify/redistribute the TSLRCM logo provided by zbyl2).
As of v1.2, I have added optional TOR-style logos. These are based on the one GOG created for K1.
Obviously this mod will not be compatible with any other mod that also alters/replaces the menu models like, for example, my own DS player menu mod (although that can be installed over the top of this mod). Any update for TSLRCM will presumably overwrite the Easter Egg menu and the logo.
N.B.: This is NOT a widescreen mod! This is just a fix for when you are already using a widescreen mod like UniWS or Aspyr's natively widescreen version.
Copy the MDL and MDX files from the "FOR OVERRIDE FOLDER" and paste them into your Override folder If you have TSLRCM, additionally copy the files from the FOR TSLRCM, overwriting when prompted in both cases If you wish to use the TOR-style logo, versions are supplied to fix stretching for those without a GUI fix, or unaltered if you use a GUI fix mod. Make sure you delete any existing KOTOR2Logo.tga in your Override. If you use Aspyr's version of TSL on Steam with TSLRCM installed from the Workshop, you'll need to use TSLRCM's Workshop folder Override folder instead. If you use M4-78, use its Override.

This is a companion to my TSL Main Menu Model Fix for Widescreen mod. In a similar manner, it adjusts the model file for K1's main menu so that it properly fills the full screen width of widescreen aspect ratios (i.e. 16:9, 16:10). It is designed to be used in conjunction with ndix UR’s KotOR High Resolution Menus mod (as pictured).
Because the original vanilla background texture is very low resolution, it looks pretty terrible when scaled up to fullscreen at 1080 (or above). I created a new, higher resolution background texture that approximates the same look.
As of v1.1, an optional replacement logo is provided. This is a TOR-style version of the logo, created by GOG. Two versions are provided, one of which is offset in order to better align using the current version of ndix UR's GUI mod. A centered version is also provided in the even that the GUI mod is updated. Note that I have only tested this at 1080. I have no idea how the image may be positioned at different resolutions.
Obviously this mod will not be compatible with any other mod that also alters/replaces the menu model. As mentioned, it is intended to be used with ndix UR’s UI mod, and serves no real purpose without that mod.
N.B.: This is NOT a widescreen mod! This is just an addition for when you are already using a widescreen mod like UniWS.
Extract the archive, copy the MDL, MDX, and TGA files, and paste them into your Override folder. If you also wish to use the TOR-style logo, copy the appropriate version to your Override folder as well. Acknowledgements

This mod is a head edit for the Handmaiden that gives her shoulder-length hair. It started life as part of experiments in aid of this request thread - http://deadlystream.com/forum/topic/4335-handmaiden-appearance/
The hair mesh is a transplant from Kreia, with the braids chopped off. In order to accommodate DS transitions, which requires the face and hair to share a single texture, the UVs for both meshes were compressed 50% horizontally to fit side-by-side within 0 to 1 UV space. The Handmaiden and Kreia textures were then combined into a single 1024x512 texture. The versions bundled with the installer are DDS, but I have provided the TGA sources as an additional download for those that may wish to undertake retextures.
Additionally, the clothes models for Handmaiden’s hooded outfit have been modified. The vanilla bodies include the head mesh as part of the model (i.e. functionally speaking it is basically a disguise). Based on my experiments with removing the head and setting it up like a normal body model, it seems that there is an animation synchronisation issue that crops up between the head and the hood, which may be why Obsidian went the full body route. This mod changes the hood outfit models to use the new long haired head mesh. The hood has been enlarged to fit the Handmaiden's new larger hair mesh. Hopefully I've cured the most prominent clipping issues, but possibly in some extreme combat animations some might still occur.
This mod doesn't alter the portraits, so should be compatible with any custom portrait mods. It uses custom model and texture names, so it should be unaffected by simple overrides, like retextures. However, it won't be compatible with any mods that alter the Handmaiden's appearance.2da or heads.2da entries.
This mod attempts to address some of the issues with holograms in TSL. In the vanilla game, the majority of holograms have things like eyeballs and teeth being visible through the head. This is caused by the way the game handles transparency, in conjunction with the order in which it renders the individual meshes that a model is comprised of. By changing the hierarchy of the meshes within these models, certain elements can be occluded, resulting in less cases of “bug-eyed” holograms. This is not a perfect solution however. Because meshes do not self-occlude, visual glitches still remain during certain animations and camera angles, but this is likely the best that can be done without being able to make alterations the game engine itself.
Additionally, because their interactions are primarily via hologram, this mod includes a revised version of Jinger/Kreia’s Admiralty Mod, which changes the appearance of Admirals Cede and Onasi to give them outfits more fitting of their rank. And while I was at it, I also revised certain appearances with head swaps and custom model merges (hair, etc.) to try and reduce overuse of the same heads and make NPCs a little more distinct.
N.B.: TSLRCM is a requirement for this mod. It is not compatible with the vanilla version of the game.

This is not addressable by model edits. The problem is the way in which the engine renders overlapping transparency within a single mesh. The Republic soldier on the Harbinger has been replaced as of v1.3, however the helmet is still somewhat problematic. I'm not sure that is addressable without completely remodelling it, and perhaps not even then given its shape. Hair planes with alpha transparency don't function as intended as holograms, so typically look pretty terrible (e.g. Peragus Maintenance Officer). There's not much that can be done about those, other than completely remodelling the hair to rely on geometry rather than texture transparency. Dangly meshes used for hair bangs tend to look conspicuous due the requirement of placing them under the head mesh in the hierarchy. Particularly egregious examples may warrant having these elements being turned into skinned meshes in a future update. No doubt there are still a few holograms that need attention that I have missed. If anyone can provide a list of such cases, I may address it in a future update. Note that some holograms look fine in their vanilla state. I am only interested in hearing about ones with issues like those already addressed in this mod ("bug eyes", etc.). Compatibility:
I've edited UTCs to point to custom appearance.2da entries, so the mod should be compatible with any other mod that only edits the vanilla 2DA entries. However, it will not be compatible with any mod that forcibly overwrites the module files this mod edits, that outright replaces the UTCs in question, or that also edits the UTC appearance values. Install any such mods first, then this mod afterwards. To make it clear, do not use this in conjunction with Jinger/Kreia’s Admiralty Mod or Darth Hayze's TSLRCM Compatibility Patch for said mod. They are superseded by this mod. A separate patch is provided for M4-78 to handle its version of the Korriban academy module. After installing the main content of the mod, run the installer a second time and select the "Additional Patch" option from the drop down menu. Acknowledgements:
Thanks to Fair Strides for creating a customised version of TSLPatcher to handle filename clashes, which made this mod practical. Thanks to Jinger/Kreia for permission to release a revised version of the Admiralty mod's content, the textures from which (with modification) are used in this mod. Thanks to zbyl2 for permission to redistribute TSLRCM's module files to ensure compatibility for Steam Workshop users Thanks to JCarter426 for permission to use the female Republic soldier body model from "JC's Republic Soldier Fix for K2" and his adjusted N_CommM04 texture from "JC's Minor Fixes for K2". Thanks to bead-v for KOTORMax and MDLEdit, and ndix UR for MDLOps 2K18 Edition, all of which were required at various points to get this to work. Thanks to ndix UR for TGA2TPC Thanks to Malkior for providing the impetus for the mod via this thread. Thanks to L0ki194 for offering input on the case of the Harbinger's "Doctor" vs "Medical Officer".
Based on this request thread, this mod replaces the Jedi captive placeables used in the final confrontation with Darth Malak aboard the Star Forge. In the vanilla version of the game, these are all identical copies of the same male body using the PMHC04 (“Mullet Man”) head. New male and female versions of this placeable have been made, utilising a variety of heads from all three human races, and Twi’leks. All eight captives in the level are now unique and distinct from one another.
Additionally, the flavour pop-up text for when you interact with the captives has been altered to change the male pronouns into neutral ones, so they work regardless of the subject’s gender.
For those that wish it, an optional extra is included that adds these new Jedi as background NPCs to the Enclave on Dantooine (N.B. as of v1.1, the pictured sparring circle has been removed due to the placeables.2da row limit bug described below).
WARNING: A critical issue has been discovered with K1's placeables.2da, limiting the number of additional new entires that can be added to around 20 rows. This mod adds 8 rows. If you use multiple mods that add new rows to placeables.2da, you will likely encounter issues. In order for the sparring circle portion of the optional extra to take effect, you must use a save prior to leaving Taris. The courtyard portion will only take effect for saves prior to being allowed to exit the Academy. These additions are purely cosmetic, so their absence will have no material affect on the primary purpose of the mod. The core content of the mod will only work with a save prior to entering the final room on the Star Forge, but I assume most people aren't still installing mods that late in proceedings. If you use @JCarter426's "Fashion Line I - Cloaked Jedi Robes for K1" mod, there will be a texture incompatibility with the Twi'lek master on Dantooine. Download the supplied compatibility patch and copy the model files into your Override folder, overwriting when prompted. Compatibility:
The core content of the mod should be compatible with most other mods, as the changes are restricted to the second-last module in the game (STA_M45AD). The optional content makes changes to the Dantooine Enclave's landing pad (DANM13) and courtyard (DANM14AA) modules. If you are using any mod that overwrites those modules (like Kainzorus Prime's NPC Overhaul Mod), make sure you install that mod first. This mod will patch its changes into pre-existing module files, so should be installed last. Acknowledgements:

This mod adds Mira from TSL as a player-selectable head for females in K1.
This version has had the additional “hair hat” meshes of the original model removed. If you have a burning desire to have those back, after you have installed the mod, copy and paste the MDL and MDX files in the OPTIONAL folder to the game’s Override folder, overwriting when prompted.
The textures and portraits are the original TPCs from TSL. If you want to use retextures in TGA format, make sure you delete the TPC versions from your Override folder.

Start as you mean to go on. For KOTOR, that apparently means leave lots of holes in your level geometry. This mod plugs some gaps in the hull of the Endar Spire, and fixes a few UV issues.
Plugs two strips that run along either side of the dead-end corridor on the Command Deck that are open to space. These are hard to see, but noticeable just above the windows in this section. Additionally, an alteration to the model's hierarchy was made so that the light strips now correctly animate. Removes an extraneous strip of mesh that was causing z-fighting issues (i.e. flickering) in the central corridor where the Jedi vs Sith fight occurs. Plugs two gaps in the room just before the escape pods in the Starboard Section. Additionally adjusts the lightmap UVs to remove a light bloom that occurred during baking due to the offset geometry. Fills some holes in the forked section of corridor in the Starboard Section just before the escape pod room. Also fixes some flipped UVs causing inverted wall trim textures in this area. Corrects some misaligned polys in an inset panel in the end wall of the escape pod room in the Starboard Section. Also adjusts the lightmap UVs of said polys to correct their baked lighting. Fixes some UVs causing inverted wall panel textures in a couple of corridor sections on both the Command Deck and Starboard Section. Installation:

The Harbinger is apparently the Swiss cheese of spacecraft. It has more holes in it than a damn sieve. This mod is a combination and extension of my previous separate mods fixing various geometry and model issues with the Harbinger. Geometry has been tweaked or added, UVs adjusted, model hierarchies re-ordered, etc. where appropriate to remove gaps, fix incorrect lightmaps, or address other problems.
The previous individual mods rolled into this mod:
Harbinger Escape Pod Room Hole Fix Harbinger Broom Closet Wall Lights Fix Harbinger Command Deck Corridor Wall Gaps Fix Those mods are now considered deprecated and have been removed from the site.
N.B. I recommend the use of @Kexikus' TSL Backdrop Improvements mod for an enhanced view out of the Harbinger's windows.
151HAR (Harbinger Command Deck) - Plugged a large gap in the wall of the escape pod room (151HAR09) 151HAR (Harbinger Command Deck) - Closes some small gaps in the exit airlock and inaccessible cutscene room that are visible during the hologram cutscenes (151HAR14, 151HAR17) 151HAR (Harbinger Command Deck) - Replaces the asteroid exterior visible through the windows with the more detailed version used during the space suit sequence (151HARSB) and tweaks its lightmap to fix a couple of visible shading errors (104pera_lm0) 152HAR (Harbinger Crew Deck) - Fixes the non-functional wall lights in the storage room (152HAR33) 152HAR (Harbinger Crew Deck) - Repositions an offset panel in one of the doorways outside the medbay (152HAR30) Compatibility:
Should be compatible with just about everything, but it won't be compatible with any mod that replaces the same room models, listed above Acknowledgements:

This mod adds a new fat commoner male model, ported from The Old Republic MMO. It replaces the generic appearance used by Handon Guld on Dantooine, who, judging by the dialogue he is involved with, was originally intended to be an overweight character.
Additionally, there are several other changes that have been made to the Calder Nettic murder investigation sequence:
Handon now sports an injured idle animation to conform to dialogue mentioning he is holding his injured side Two erroneous fades to black in penultimate dialogue lines have been removed When the player solely accuses either Handon or Rickard, the other will now run off after being given permission to leave rather than standing around Master Bolook has had his appearance changed to a green Twi’lek to match one of Rickard’s lines of dialogue referring to him as a “green-skinned nerfherder” (apparently he was green in the original Xbox version, but was changed to orange for the PC version)
N.B. - You will need to load a save prior to entering the Dantooine Grove for the first time in order for this mod to take full effect.

This mod addresses an issue with the vanilla Zeison Sha armour model for males (PMBMM). It appears something happened during its creation by Obsidian that results in the left hand being unable to reach far enough across the body to properly perform a two-handed grip during weapon animations. The model was also undersized compared to the other male models.
Scaled the model 102% to bring it in line with the height/size of other medium male models Adjusted some hand and wrist skin weights to minimise bad deformation Swapped to the PMBNM rig to alleviate left arm position/rotation issues Known Issues:
It seems like swapping to the PMBNM rig may have traded one set of issues for another. There appear to be some deformation problems with the right hand that aren't present when using the original rig. I may swap to a third rig at some point to see if I can find a better solution. The dual melee wielding animations still suffer from the vanilla bug of the off-hand clipping through the hilt. Download @JCarter426's Supermodel Fix for K2. Installation:

This mod is a small fix for a couple of wall panels in the entranceway of the Taris Upper City cantina. For some reason the mesh for this particular pair of panels was split off into a different model from the rest of the room. More importantly, it was assigned a lightmap that doesn't exist, thus it appears black in-game. To solve this, a duplicate of the adjoining panels was added to the entranceway room model in the appropriate position and the original mesh removed.
To install, simply drop the MDL/MDX files into your Override.
Won't be compatible with any other mods that edit those two room models, but the likelihood of that is low. Acknowledgements:

For those that crave an identity crisis, this mod adds the head model of the “Jedi Entity” AKA the Jedi Exile AKA Meetra Surik from The Old Republic MMO, ported to K1 as a selectable player head for female characters.

A few notes:
While aligned as closely as possible, the neckline probably won't match perfectly. Expect some visible gaps on body models that don't hide the join. The TOR head models use separate textures for the face, eyes, and hair. In order to allow for DS transitions, these had to be merged together (and the UVs adjusted to match). The eyes are the big loser in this. They went from having their own dedicated 256x256 texture to being shrunk down to a corner where they could be squeezed in. An additional consequence of the texture merge is no normal maps, due to the hair requiring alpha masking. TOR heavily relies on tint mapping textures for variation - skin tone, hair colour, eye colour, etc. Unfortunately, while the tint colours are available in the material files, the specifics of their shaders are currently unknown to me, so the best I can do is experiment with various blend modes to approximate the look. It may require some further experimentation and kludging. Not even having specularity, much less the advanced (by comparison) graphical features of TOR, expect textures to look pretty flat by comparison to the originals. KOTOR has a maximum bone limit per mesh of 16. This creates a problem for TOR meshes, as adding the eyelids to the face bone array pushes that to 18. I had to drop 2 bones to make it work. I chose the two nose corner bones, as they seemed the least important. I don't know what effect this may have on various facial animations though. The hair meshes are currently completely rigid. Possibly I may add a danglymesh version in a future update. Dark Side transitions are included, but they are relatively mild. I'm not a big fan of the zombie look. In an act of ultimate laziness, the mod currently uses all the same portraits as the TSL mod. I might eventually update them to make them more K1-like. Acknowledgements:
