Penguin Unit has made up a useful little mod for us here. The game's default robes may look a whole lot cooler to wear than light armor, but they're nowhere nearly as useful. Low defense bonuses, very few available upgrades... Bad combination for any character who likes to wade into swarms of enemies with their lightsabers blazing. But alas, such sacrifices must be made for fashion!
But this mod corrects this, and provides Jedi robes that offer more protection for your character than a paper bag. Rather than the normal defense bonus, there is one of five. Also included is a handy Force point regeneration bonus of 1.
A useful little change, in my opinion. Jedi characters can still look Jedi and have a decent enough defense, but it's not unbalanced to the point that it's more protective than heavy armor or lets you use upgrades that give 60% immunity to energy. Very handy for those of you who think Jedi robes are underpowered.
Penguin Unit has also stated he wishes to include a custom skin for his robe. Let's keep an eye out for the 2.0 version of his mod!
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.
Author: Penguin Unit Email: Sorry, I've gotten enough spam bots from sending a file to JK3 files. I'm ont putting it. I assume the staff can check the Email for my adress. If you want to say something about it, I'm fine with a comment below. Name: Penguin Unit's LightWeight Robe Credits: I was the only one involved. Thanks to Fred Tetra for his useful KotOR Tool. FileName: Penguins_Robe.zip File Size:1.03 KB Date Released: 05/14/07 Description: This is a very simple mod. All it actually does it enable a tougher Jedi Robe in the game for use. The robe has a higher defense bonus than the normal Jedi Robe, and it also has my name tagged onto it. I plan to, when I get better, change some more stuff with it, including an actual reskin. Installation Instructions: Go into the zip file and find a_robe_72.uti. Drag that into C\Program Files\Lucasarts\SWKotOR\Override. If you don't have an override folder, make one and put this inside it. When ingame, the code to receive the robe is "giveitem a_robe_72" without the quotes. Look in your inventory, and it should be there. If it isn't, it's either a mod problem or you installed to the wrong spot. Comments: This is my first mod, so it is not perfect. I wanted to make the tunic a slightly bluish color to make it look like it's made of a different type of fiber, but the skin didn't work very well. I'm not sure why. Until I can fix it, this will remain unchanged except for the stats and the name. Bugs: I couldn't get the texture to work, so it's still the default robe with a new name and higher defense bonus. Permissions: DO NOT release this anywhere else without letting me know in the comments. If you do, I'll get that website's staff to fry your butt.
