One thing each party member had in the first Knights of the Old Republic game was their own set of personal clothing. It was the one thing they could wear that set them apart from the others. The other items such as armor and robes were all the same; meaning no matter who wore them, the look was exactly the same.
JCarter426 is back to the modding scene to make it so the three Jedi party members use their signature clothing style as Jedi Robes. He also made it so the coloring of the clothing items were the color matches to the color of robes you traditionally get by BioWare.
The author wanted to make it so when they wore a Jedi Robe; they had their clothing appearance, so he made some changes to the appearance.2da file and there is no TSL Patcher with this mod so it will require some .2da editing. The author does include instructions in the readme file on how to do it.
Personally I would have just edited some custom UTI files and have it set to the Base Item to Basic Clothing and then name the textures to their appropriate numbers and then set the Model Variations from 1 to 4 on four different UTI’s to prevent .2da editing and have them available for just the party members to wear them while giving the clothing items Jedi Robe stats. In any case, if you like the work the author did, you may want to download The KOTOR Tool and learn how to use it. Enjoy the new robe skins! :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.

INSTALLATION ____________________ Step 1: Extract the contents and open the PersonalRobes folder Step 2: Move all the enclosed files (except the readme) to your Override folder (if you do not have an Override folder, make one). If you have any mods that use the appearance.2da then you will need to do some editing. If not, just ignore steps 3-7. Step 3: Before you move the appearance.2da file to your Override folder, open it up with KOTOR Tool. Step 4: Copy the "modeli" and "texturei" entries from the P_Bastila, P_Jolee, and P_Juhani lines and paste them to a word processor. Step 5: Then open up the appearance.2da file that is already in your Override folder. Step 6: Replace the "modeli" and "texturei" entries from the P_Bastila, P_Jolee, and P_Juhani lines and replace them with the ones you just copied. Step 7: Save the appearance.2da file to your desktop or some other easily accessable place, and move it to your Override folder. When prompted, select "move and replace". Step 8: Enjoy! ____________________ 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. I never was all that fond of K1's Jedi robes, and I thought that some of the Jedi characters' default clothing looked better. So I reskinned the clothing textures of Bastila, Jolee, and Juhani, and used these new skins to replace the Jedi robes. So now each of your Jedi party members will have their own personal Jedi robes in four different colors--brown, black, red, and blue. There are no new items included in this mod; it simply changes the appearance of the Jedi robes that are already in the game. There is no need to start a new game; the changes will take place immediately. ____________________ 3.
