5 Essential KOTOR 2 Mods
With Knights of the Old Republic 2 finally on Steam, you may have the urge to play through the classic title one more time — or, for the first time.
Whether you’re a veteran or a newcomer, your KOTOR 2 experience isn’t complete without mods. To help you out, we’ve assembled this list of five essential mods you shouldn’t play this game without.
that will enhance your experience. Note that this isn’t strictly a list of the best mods, but rather the mods that you shouldn’t do without.
5. 90SK’s SUPER Content Mod
What better way to kick off this list than with a content mod? Not just any content mod, mind you — a SUPER content mod. This massive content mod revamps the SWTOR 2′s armor and robes while also adding new encounters, merchants, items, character portraits, and more. Some of the new baddies are even fully-voiced, and the new dialogue is quality material. Look for new merchants on Nar Shadaa and Onderon.
4. Ultimate Saber Mod
No, I’m not just picking mods with the words “super” or “ultimate” in them. This saber mod adds 36 new lightsaber hilt models to the game, enhancing your saber customization options. All of the important Jedi and Sith NPC’s in the game will also be sporting the new lightsaber hilts.
3. Skip Peragus
Want to get to Telos in under 15 minutes? This mod allows you to skip through the vast majority of Peragus and even acquire a lightsaber, color crystals, and a pair of weak Jedi Robes — essential for second, third, of twelfth playthrough.
2. KOTOR and TSL Save Game Editor
Save game editors aren’t just for “cheating.” This one allows you to do so much more than alter your attributes, skills, feats, Force Powers, and equipment. You can do those things, of course, but you can also change your character’s name, your class, your appearance, the names, classes and appearance of your companions, and much, much more.
1. TSL Restored Content Mod
Apparently, a fair amount of content was cut from Knights of the Old Republic II, and this mod restores that missing content.
There are complete story arcs, each planet has some added content, you have party interaction, Dantooine is much more complete and the Battle is even more epic. There is also the much vaunted HK factory and new high quality voice-overs.
To quote from the trailer:
There was once a game. And it was released to the public incomplete, and left broken.
Now… it has been made whole.
