File Description

Darth Moeller has sent us a new head model for us to use. It’s based on the Caucasian Male head number five in the original KOTOR game. Now this head model is available for KOTOR II: TSL. The change that is done on the skins that is different from the original version you see in K1 is the eye colors. The author made them baby blue. There are dark side transitions to this mod.

Again, the skin tons have not been changed from the original version, but the eye colors have been. Personally, I like the baby blue color in the eyes and sometimes just minor tweaking makes all the difference the appeal of a mod changed from the original version. This mod is an example of that.

The first two dark side transitions still stay true to the baby blue eye color. The final two have a fire color in the eyes. It sort of sends a message to opponents that you don’t want to mess with me if you catch my drift.

The author also made some brand new cool looking icons for each transition your PC is in. I must say, those were very well done. I’m definitely impressed with the work done in that area.

For those who are wondering about porting issues, these files that are originally in KOTOR, are also in TSL, so it’s perfectly legal.

This mod uses the appearance.2da file in it, but never fear. Darth Moeller put the TSL Patcher in the mod for installing it so that it will automatically update your file your appearance.2da file or give you one if you don’t use one currently. This is very useful for those who have no modding skills, especially if they have no skills in editing .2da files. Be sure to read the readme for instructions. And lastly, enjoy the new head option for TSL. :D

Note: Please leave the author feedback, especially if you download this mod and use it. It really helps encourage the author to make more mods in the future.

Installation:
---------------------------------------------------
1.If you haven't done so already, create a folder named "override" (without 
quotes) in your KotOR II directory.

NOTE: this mod uses itemcreate.2da and itemcreatemira.2da files. If you are 
already using such files, please read the disclaimer below. It's VERY 
important that your .2da files aren't located within a sub-folder of your 
override directory!


***************************************************
IMPORTANT NOTE! The installer will NOT look for existing files within 
sub-folders of the Override folder, just in the Override folder itself. If 
you have modified versions of any of the above listed files sitting in 
sub-folders, put them into into the main Override folder before running the 
Installer.
***************************************************

2. Next, run the installer application named "Install New PC-PMHC05.exe" 
that came with this mod. This will update the necessary game 
files and install the Mod into your game. Make sure that there is a folder 
named "tslpatchdata" present in the same folder the Installer application 
is. This folder contains essential data files the installer needs.

NOTE: You have to run this installer for this mod to work.  Simply copying 
the files from TSLpatchdata doesn't work!


Uninstall:
---------------------------------------------------
Simply remove all files included in this mod from your override directory.


Known Issues:
---------------------------------------------------
There are currently no known issues or problems with this mod.  If you do 
encounter any issues or problems, please alert me via the e-mail above. I 
will try to fix them the best I can.
