Original Review on Filefront:

 

Our benevolent overlord returns with an interesting addition to the planet Korriban. Remember the Sith Academy? Of course you do; it was in both games. ;) Well, it's only in the first Knights of the Old Republic game that you get to become a student of the academy, and more importantly (at least for this mod), meet other students. Currently, all of the students of the academy wear those uniforms that Sith officers wear. It's a little odd, because they're not supposed to be just normal Sith officers, but Dark Jedi. Even the two masters of the academy, Uthar Wyn and Yuthura Ban, wear regular uniforms.

 

So Shem has decided to give all of the students Dark Jedi robes. It's a nice addition, I think, and it means you might get a few extra robes for your party, and a few other nice items. But I'll explain that later. ;) In addition to having robes, some of the NPCs' appearances have been altered, to avoid repetition. Also, Master Uthar and his former master, Jorak Uln, each wear special armor.

 

Now, as if that wasn't enough, there are a few surprises here and there. But if you haven't played the game yet, you might want to stop reading. ;)

 

The main objective for Korriban is to find the Star Map in the Tomb of Naga Sadow. To get to that tomb, you have to gain enough prestige to be chosen to take the final trials. As I alluded to above, you'll be able to take some those Dark Jedi robes from for yourself; that's because you'll have the opportunity to terminate hostilities with some of your competition before you enter the tomb, and again afterwards.

 

There are several different endings for Korriban, depending on your choices in the Tomb of Naga Sadow. For best results (i.e. to get the most items) you should kill both Uthar and Yuthura. This will throw the Sith academy into a rebellion, and all of the students and teachers will become hostile. This is both a light side and dark side option, so you don't have to worry about that. But if you want some extra LS points, befriending Yuthura and helping her kill Uthar, then bringing her back to the light will get the same results, though you won't get any of Yuthura's items.

 

OK, you can keep reading now if you stopped before. ;)

 

This mod utilizes the TSL patcher to make the necessary appearance.2da changes, and there is an extra file included that will make the mod compatible with T7nowehere's Weapons of the Old Republic, for those of you who have that mod. The mod is also compatible with Prime's Jedi Model mod, so no worries if you have that as well. Enjoy the new Sith academy!

 

NOTE: Please leave comments or feedback for the author, especially if you download and use this mod; usually it's the only reward modders receive for their efforts.

I like this mod a lot but I had to go through each of the modified .utc because some of them have extremely rare drops like the Mantle of the Force and Heart of the Guardian (both x2!) which is something very undesirable from a gameplay standpoint.

 

Aesthetically excellent, though.

It has been a while since I last used this mod and TSLPatcher. Could anyone tell me how to properly install this mod again?

According to the readme, "Instructions: Use the TSL Patcher make the changes to the appearance.2da file and put the rest of 

the files manually into the override folder and enjoy the mod!" 
 
To clarify run the tslpatcher make sure to select the main KOTOR folder as the installed file that will patch up the appearance.2da file.
Once, that's done go back to the mod file, and copy the files from the "For Override" folder and paste them into the override inside your kotor main folder.
 
I'm not trying to patronize you, but you can learn a lot from reading the ReadMe's they often explain how to install.

Thank you for the reply, jc2. I did read the readme but I kept getting an error message with TSL Patcher. The 'Override' file in my GOG version of KOTOR does not have a appearance.2da file in it. I suppose I could use the backup version provided. I will see if that works.

You don't need a copy of appearance.2da in your Override folder. The mod is set up to supply a vanilla copy if there is no pre-existing one present.

Ah, you are both quite right. I was making a stupid oversight, not selecting the entire KOTOR file on my computer rather than just the 'Override' folder. :blush: Thanks for your assistance jc2 and DarthParametric.
