Imperial Stormtroopers



When we watch the original Star Wars Trilogy, the one of the things you won’t forget is the Stormtrooper uniform. What if you had the chance to use the Stormtrooper armor and helmet to wear with your characters? How about having the Sith Soldiers where the Stormtrooper armor? Prime brings this for the original Knights of the Old Republic game.

With the help of Hapslash for the model originally used for Jedi Academy and textures, Bneezy for helping with importing Hapslash’s head model into the game, and other members of Holowan Labs and their help and advice (credits in the readme portion), Prime makes it possible for us to be like or have your enemies be like Stormtroopers. I really love have this turned out and I must say that I know many people will be happy with having the feel of the Star Wars movies in their KOTOR game.

The game uses appearance.2da and heads.2da file portions. If you are using those particular files, you will need to do some editing in order to make this compatible with your other mods. Enjoy the mod! :D

KOTOR Imperial Stormtrooper Mod

Version: 1.1

Skinner: Prime

Importer: Bneezy

This mod adds Imperial stormtroopers to Knights of the Old Republic.  There are 
two options for altering the game.  Either or both options can be used as one time. 

OPTION 1: Player Wearable Stormtrooper Armour
This adds stormtrooper armour that is wearable by players and party NPCs.  The mod 
includes both the body armour suit and a helmet, and they can be equiped independently 
of each other. Along with altering the characters appearance, the stormtrooper armour 
provides the following bonuses to the player characters:

Body Armour:
Defense +10
Max Dexterity Bonus +0
Limited environmental protection

Awareness +2

Files for Option 1:
PMBH15.tga - texture for the stormtrooper armour suit
helmet.tga - texture for the stormtrooper helmet
ia_class9_015.tga - inventorty icon for the armour suit
ii_mask_099.tga - inventory icon for the helmet
i_mask_099.mdl - helmet model mdl file
i_mask_099.mdx - helmet model mdx file
helmet.txi - texture reflectiveness specification
storm_armour.uti - armour suit parameters and specifications
storm_helmet.uti - helmet parameters and specifications
lev40_armlock001.utp - item placement to add new equipment to the game as "treasure"

OPTION 2: Sith Trooper Replacement
This replaces all the Sith troopers (the guys with the shiny metalic armour) with
Imperial stormtroopers.  All other features and behaviors of the Sith troopers will
remain the same, with only their appearance altered.  This also alters the Sith 
disquise as well.

Files for Option 2:
PMBH01.tga - texture for the stormtrooper armour suit
helmet.tga - texture for the stormtrooper helmet (this is the same file as for Option 1)
STHA04.mdl - helmet model mdl file
STHA04.mdx - helmet model mdx file
heads.2da - adds the helmet as a new head for the Sith troopers
appearance.2da - adds the armour for the Sith troopers to wear


1. Extract all the files listed under Option 1 above into the Override folder in the 
Knights of the Old Republic directory.  This allows the armour to be found during 
the course of the game.  

2. Using the "giveitem" cheat command (OPTIONAL!)
This method will add the armour and helmet to the player character's inventory.
To enable cheats, in your game directory edit swkotor.ini and under [Game Options] 
add EnableCheats=1.  Start the game then when playing press ' to bring down the console
prompt, which appears as a ">" in the upper left corner.

At the console prompt, type "giveitem storm_armour" to add the armour suit to the
inventory.  To add the helmet, type "giveitem storm_helmet".  These can then be equiped
by the player from the inventory screen.


Extract all the files listed under Option 2 above into the Override folder in the 
Knights of the Old Republic directory.  Note that the helmet.tga file is the same for
both options.  The Sith troopers will automatically be replaced.


Extract all the files into the Override folder in the Knights of the Old Republic 
directory.  The player wearable armour can still be added using the cheat commands
explained above.

Simply remove the files from the Override directory.

Known Issues:
Version 1.1 fixes the issue of certain Sith troopers on the Star Forge not having an 
armour texture.  It also fixes the issue of the Jedi Nemo having a faulty robe texture. 

When the Sith troopers are replaced with the stormtroopers, they loose their head 
animations.  The result is their necks appear "stiff".  This shouldn't be
too noticable though.

If you use the Sith trooper replacement option, one of the heavy armour skins will be
replaced by the stormtrooper skin.

If you encounter other issues, please report them to the email address specified above.
We will do what we can to correct them.

NOTE: if you already have a modified appearance.2da or heads.2da file in your Override
directory, DO NOT replace those with the versions included in this mod.  This will
have undesirable affects on the other mods.  You will have to choose which mod you
want to use.

There are lots of people to thank for helping make this mod a reality.  Thanks to 
Hapslash for allowing us to use his awesome Jedi Academy stormtrooper helmet model and 
skins.  A MASSIVE thanks to Darth333 for her endless patience and help solving various 
scripting problems.  She is a fountain of good ideas and Without her the replacement 
portion would simply not exist. 

Thanks to Fred Tetra for creating the truly fantastic kotor editing tool.  Also 
a appreciative shout out to the many friendly folks at the Lucasforums' Holowan 
Laboratories board who have provided guidance and insight as well as answering 
numerous questions.  These include Xavier2, Achilles, Doom_Dealer, svösh, and of 
course T7nowhere (sorry about flooding your inbox with questions). 

Finally, thanks to Bioware for making a truly kick ass game...
