I know I speak for many people when I talk about playing the Knights of the Old Republic games that I originally loved the idea because you get to be a Jedi and use the Force. Well, that would be a reason to play may Star Wars games, right? One of the things that the Knights of the Old Republic games brings is not only being a Jedi as your main character, but you have some party members that are too. The idea of Jedi working together really gives great appeal to this game. Sometimes the idea of having party members outside the Jedi class seems to be a turn off to the games, right?
HandoKinral returns to the modding scene with a mod that replaces T3-M4 with a Jedi named Ross. He’s a Jedi Watchmen and you will be able to pick him up on Peragus just like you do with T3-M4. In the first game, T3-M4 never really served much of a purpose for the most part. Once you open the door to the Sith Base on Taris, you never need to use him again. Then in Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, T3-M4 becomes more useful and you have some solo missions with him. Still, there are some people who just couldn’t get on board with this droid. If that is the case, then you may want to get this mod.
There are some bugs with this mod that are stated in the readme. From the author’s notes, he’s basically saying this mod is still playable. I’ve never experimented in changing party members like this in my personal modding experience, so I can’t tell you if there is some bugs outside of what the author mentions and I just don’t have the time to play through a whole game just to find out for you so use at your own risk. I would love to hear what people think and what they run into playing with it so I can keep those comments as notes for future references in future reviews of these types of mods. Enjoy! :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.

KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC II: THE SITH LORDS MODIFICATION Author: HandoKinral Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Name: Recruit Ross 1.0 Filename: RecruitRoss.zip File Size: 13.9 KB Date Released: 9/17/07 Description: This recruitment mod replaces T3M4 with a dead Jedi Watchmen named Ross. How to Install: Extract "t3m4.utc" and "t3m4.dlg" from the zip file and put them into your Override folder. How to UnInstall: Delete "T3M4.utc" and "T3M4.dlg" from your Override folder. Comments: My insperation came from DarthDementous. He makes great recruitment mods. Bugs: Some dialog on Peragus by Atton and Ross is seriously fast, so you cannot read it. I don't think this matters much because it isn't custom dialog and if you know what to do, it should be fine. If I find a way to fix this I will.
