One of the many cool features when playing the Knights of the Old Republic games is the different head selections you can choose from. Let’s face it, the more choices the better. We all have our preferences on what we would like. Of course adding the ability to mod the game has really helped the value of the KOTOR games to add more choices to our personal preference. As for head selections, adding ability have more head selections is also a good thing.
Obtenebration makes his FileFront debut by adding an extra female head selection to the original Knights of the Old Republic game. This new head reminds me of the Handmaiden from Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords because of her white hair and it’s short. The reason for this change for this head selection is to resemble the Echani look. Also note that this new female Echani looking head selection does have dark side transitions. It’s not too drastic with the veins and decaying look that the KOTOR games gave, just an eye color change once you are really down the dark path, which I believe to be a good move on the author.
This mod does use the TSL Patcher for easy installation and possible file merging depending on your personal override, very handy for those with no modding skills, especially .2da editing skills. Enjoy the new head! :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.
**NOTE*** This is a replacement version that has the TSL Patcher Installer that was missing from the last upload!!!
====================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: mattz or obtenebration NAME: K1 Echani Female PC CREDITS: Kotor Tool, TSL Patcher, Paint.Net, and the great people who have anything to do with KOTOR mods – I’ve learned a lot from you. And of course LucasArts, Bioware, and Obsidian. FILENAME: K1_Echani_Female_PC.zip FILE SIZE: 2.58 MB including screenshots DATE RELEASED: 04-29-07 DESCRIPTION: This mod adds a selectable female PC head to Kotor 1. She is Echani-like. She is based upon the fourth Caucasian head – the one with the really short blond hair. I have changed her hair color to a light grey/white color, as well as changing her darkside transitions (as I am not a fan of the veins and drastic change from the original head textures). She is complete with her own portraits. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Install by running the Mod Installer program. Make sure you open it up in your swkotor folder and not your override folder. The program will find the override folder on its own. It should edit appearance.2da, heads.2da, and portraits.2da. If they are not present, it should create them. Other files it will add (or modify – hopefully not, if so, there might be a problem): PFHZ01.tga PFHZ01d1.tga PFHZ01d2.tga PFHZ01d3.tga PFHZ01d.tga pfhz01.mdl pfhz01.mdx PO_pfhz1.tga PO_pfhz1d1.tga PO_pfhz1d2.tga PO_pfhz1d3.tga PO_pfhz1d.tga If you don’t like darkside transitions, or mine , just delete files PFHZ01d1.tga, PFHZ01d2.tga, PFHZ01d3.tga, PFHZ01d.tga from your override folder after installing the mod. COMMENTS: I’ve spent quite some time haunting the message boards over at Holowan Labs. I finally decided to release a public mod after learning how to use the basics of TSLPatcher – should have a long time ago – and I figured this would be a more accessible mod if the user didn’t have to mess with 2da issues. I like Handmaiden and the other Echani in TSL, and I wanted to incorporate them in to K1. I noticed some resemblance between the Echani and the short-haired blond female PC. Also, to be noted, the screenshots were taken on my computer, which, sadly, has pretty poor graphics. BUGS: No known bugs, but please let me know if there are any found. PERMISSIONS: Please let me know if you would like to use it for anything, but just in case I become unreachable at Holowan (or otherwise), you can use it without. Please give me credit for my involvement, though. Thank you all for downloading and reading.
