Warning: This review may contain spoilers. If you have not played through KotOR II: TSL, I would not advise reading this review - some surprises may be lost.
One thing that the original KotOR lacked was enough items - and the community churned out mods to rectify this. When KotOR II came 'round, there were a lot more, but still not enough to satisfy our need for more equipment, more variations on item properties, and as many items have been released.
JCarter426 makes their KotORFiles debut with a new item pack that adds eight new items, most of which are specific to one party member or to the Exile themself. :D
Not only that, but all HK parts, lightsabre parts, lightsabre colour crystals and pazaak cards have been made available to the player on Telos.
All in all, an excellent first mod, and a great addition to KotORFiles. I for one greatly look forward to your next work, JCarter426. :)
NB: Please leave the author constructive feedback if you download and use this mod - the download counter isn't very informative.

INSTALLATION ____________________ Step 1: Extract the contents and open the CustomItems folder. Step 2: Move all the enclosed files to your Override folder (if you do not have an Override folder, make one). Step 3: Open the PlacedItems folder. Step 4: Move all the enclosed files to your Override folder. Now, there might be some compatibility issues, if you have any other mods installed that affect the various NPCs and placeables used in this mod. If so, then hit "cancel". While the items will not appear ingame, you can still use the giveitem cheat to add them to your inventory. Step 5: For best results, start a new game, or load a saved game from before Citadel Station. However, you will still be able to use the giveitem cheat to add any of these items to your inventory at any time. To uninstall: Simply remove all the items from your Override folder. I suggest you keep this ReadMe file so that you know which files to remove (see "4. File List" below). ____________________ 2. Description ____________________ This mod is basically a test, as I am new to modding for KOTOR. I am currently working on a comic adaptation of the games, and I'm hoping to take advantage of the ability to modify the game. For example, the Jedi General Armor and Jedi Exile's Armor are intended for use in the comics. So I began practicing with KOTOR Tool to see what I could do, and wound up with an assortment of items, which I am now sharing with you. ____________________ 3. What's Included ____________________ *All lightsaber and HK parts on Telos *All the pazaak cards you want *A lightsaber crystal of every color *Personal items for Atton, Bao-dur, Handmaiden, Mira, and the Exile *A new set of non-Force restricting armor *Three new implants ____________________ LIGHTSABER PARTS *All found on Citadel Station. One given to player by Chodo Habat/Jana Lorso, and the other two are in one of the apartments in Residential Module 082. *Dendis Dobo (one of the Duros merchants in Entertainment Module 081) now has in stock a crystal of every color. *So you should have all four parts required to build a lightsaber by the time you meet Bao -dur on the surface. *(A tip: if you get Samhan arrested by the TSF, Dendis will give you a discount, so I suggest you complete the Black Market side quest before purchasing any items from Dendis.) ____________________ HK-47 PARTS AND ITEMS *Vocabulator found on the HK-50 on Peragus, and the other three parts, and HK’s assortment of personal items, can be found in the Telos Military Base. So you should have all four parts to rebuild HK by the time you get the Ebon Hawk back. ____________________ PAZAAK CARDS *Dendis Dobo will now sell more useful pazaak cards, as opposed to ones that you already own. (Again, it is suggested that you complete the Black Market side quest before purchasing any items from Dendis.) ____________________ BAO-DUR'S TECH BELT (a_belt_baodur) *+2 Dexterity, +2 Strength, +3 Awareness, +6 Computer Use, +4 Demolitions, +6 Repair, +4 Security, +3 Treat Injury, Class Restriction: Tech Specialist. *Found on the corpse of the Twi’lek droid master. Little known fact: her class is tech specialist, which is why she has the belt. *Since Bao-dur is the only Tech Specialist in the game, only he can equip the belt, unless you modify your starting class (which is not recommended, so basically only Bao-dur can equip it). ____________________ MANDALORIAN STEALTH UNIT (a_belt_mand) *+4 Dexterity, Defense Bonus +1, +4 Stealth, Class Restriction: Scout *Found on dead Mandalorian on Dxun. *This is meant to be one of Mira’s personal items, since she’s a Mandalorian, and also a Scout. However, if Mira is not in your party, then it can be equipped by Hanharr, who is also a Scout. Again, if you modify your starting class, you will be able to equip it, but this is not recommended, so basically only Mira/Hanharr can equip the belt. ____________________ Jedi GENERAL ARMOR (a_jedi_general), JEDI EXILE'S ARMOR (a_exile_general) *Jedi General Armor: +3 Defense, Max Dexterity +4, +2 Charisma, +2 Wisdom, Regeneration 1, Regenerate FP 1 *Jedi Exile's Armor: +3 Defense, Max Dexterity +4, +2 Charisma, +2 Wisdom, Regeneration 1, Regenerate FP 1, Immunity: 5% vs. Energy, Useable by Player *Exile's Armor sold by Geeda on Nar Shaddaa, 3 regular sold by Kex on Dxun. ____________________ ECHANI TRAINING GLOVES (a_gloves_echani) *Attack Bonus +1, Dexterity +1, Defense Bonus +1 when unarmed, Damage Bonus: 5 Bludgeoning, On Hit: Knockdown DC 18, Useable by Handmaiden or Atton. *Found on Benok and Nahata (two Exchange thugs) once you kill them. ____________________ BIOTECH IMPLANT (not an original item, but one I find very useful) *Found on Luxa, Benok, and Nahata after you kill them (so make sure you kill Luxa). They all have them equipped, which means they regenerate VP, and it will make them slightly more difficult to kill (though since they’re easy to begin with, it probably won’t make much of a difference). ____________________ ADVANCED BIOTECH IMPLANT (e_imp3_biotech) *Regeneration 2, Regenerate FP 1, Attribute Restriction: Constitution >= 16 *1 sold by Geeda on Nar Shaddaa, 1 sold by Geg on Onderon, 2 sold by Kex on Dxun. ____________________ ULTIMATE BIOTECH IMPLANT (3_imp4_biotech) *Regeneration 3, Regenerate FP 2, Attribute Restriction: Constitution >= 18 *Found on Ludo Kresh ____________________ MANDALORIAN IMPLANT (e_imp4_mand) *Regeneration 2, Constitution +2, Strength +2, Dexterity +2, Immunity: Poison, Attribute Restriction: Constitution >= 18 *3 sold by Kex on Dxun, 1 found on dead Mandalorian on Dxun. ____________________ 4.

Bugs ____________________ I think that some of the placeables I used might not be unique. Thus, it's possible that some of these items may show up in places I have not listed. It's not a problem, though; I just thought I should point it out. ____________________ 6. Permissions ____________________ You may use this mod however you see fit--post it on your site, include it in your own mod, hand out pamphlets--whatever. Just be sure to include a link to the original mod, and credit me, JCarter426, in your ReadMe. ____________________ 7.
