The one thing about playing both of the Knights of the Old Republic games is you always fight right-handed. No lefties exist in that world. Overall it was probably easier to make everybody right-handed since our world is more right-handed dominate; so why not the Star Wars Universe?
DarthDingDong brings us mod that will be the closest you’ll ever get in fighting left-handed in the first Knights of the Old Republic game. From what I’m reading in the author’s readme file, this is a result of a failed modeling attempt. He tried to convert an Inyri Forge model and it turned out to be a null (nothing there) model. Well, in case this will be useful information for the author if he wants to release a Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords version of this mod, he can get null models for each of the games from the KOTOR Tool to save the trouble. :p
How this mod works is you equip a invisible sword the author has provided and then you either equip another sword or a lightsaber and it almost looks like you’re fighting left-handed. Well, it’s like I said earlier; it’s the closest you’re ever going to get in these games. An advantage would be that you appear that you have a single weapon, but you will be given dual weapon damage bonuses. If you’re a lefty (like me), and you really want to have that left-handed look or as close to it as possible, you may want to check this out. Enjoy the mod! :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 MODIFICATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: DarthDingDong EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org NAME: Left-handed melee combat. CREDITS: InyriForge FILENAME: invisi_sword DATE RELEASED: 21/12/07 DESCRIPTION: Has anyone else apart from me noticed that EVERYONE in KotOR is right handed? I did and it kinda bugged me (sad I know). If anyone else noticed this and didn't like it then this mod is the answer. I give you the Invisi-Sword! Equip it in you're right hand and it's completely invisible, then equip a single bladed lightsaber/melee weapon and voila! Now it looks like you are only using you're left hand! (There technically is a weapon in the right hand, though since it's invisible it just looks like your PC/NPC is in a fencing stance. (Anyone who plays Soul Calibur may notice it looks a little like Raphael's fighting stance). To get it ingame type g_w_lngswrd032 into the cheat console along with the giveitem code. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Just drop the files into your KotOR Override directory. BUGS: None. NOTE: If you open the model in 3DSMax or GMax you'll notice the model is actually a Soul Edge model. This is because I was trying to port Inyri's Soul Edge model from JA over to KotOR. This mod was the result, so really I made this accidentally. I did try to duplicate the effect using a different model but was unsucessful. Inyri did give me permission to use the model a while ago so I did. Thanks Inyri! :-) PERMISSIONS: This mod may not be used without the explicit permission of the author. This mod may not be distributed on other sites without the express permission of the author.
