File Description

The Sith Academy on Korriban was a fun place to visit, but its members really didn't add to the experience with their horrific fashion sense. I was left wondering from my first playthrough why Dark Jedi were dressed as Sith officers rather than as, well, Dark Jedi.

This mod fixes that to a degree. Uthar, Yuthura, Jorak, and the four main Sith students (Lashowe, Mekel, Shardaan, Dustil) are now wearing Dark Jedi robes like the ones your character has. Uthar also has a suit of one of the game's blacker armors on, though I think the skintight pants make it look somewhat silly on him. Since he's been buffed to 150 HP, though, that makes up for it. :p

In addition, Adrenas has been turned into a Twi'lek because he speaks like one. BioWare's explanation for why he did was conceivable (he was raised on a world outside the Republic so the Republic's trade language wouldn't have been necessary for most people to know), but all that same it felt more like an excuse for them to not have to pay one of the voice actors to record some extra lines. :p

Note, however, that this mod has several bugs. The first of which is Yuthura showing up in her old outfit in the cantina - not game-ruining or anything, but annoying if you like things consistent. (She had time to change clothes between there and the academy how?) The other, while technically not a bug, is that the mod alters appearance.2da and doesn't use the TSLPatcher. This unfortunately makes it incompatible with an umber of other mods out there.

Note: Please remember to give the author of the mod feedback, as the download count isn't particularly verbose. Written comments tend to be much more useful and encouraging.

KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION

AUTHOR: Simon Beavis
EMAIL: SBeavis904@yahoo.com
NAME: Sith Academy tweaks
CREDITS: This was a solo operation, but special thanks to Darth Balatro from LucasForums for helping me figure out appearance.2da variables, and to Fred Tetra for the KOTOR Tool, and the GFFA.

DESCRIPTION: This alters the wardrobe of the specific Sith Academy members, the ones that have their own heads.

COMMENTS: This is my first mod. I had noticed from Shem's YouTube video that on his version of KOTOR, the Sith academy members have Dark Jedi robes instead of the gray dress uniform. Since I had not seen such a mod released, I thought I'd make one myself. So now Dustil, Shardaan, Mekel, and Lashowe are wearing Dark Jedi robes, and Uthar, Jorak, and Yuthura are wearing Dark Jedi Master robes. I also changed the appearance of Adrenas, the academy chamberlain. I thought it was weird seeing a human speaking Twileki, and a bit too much of a coincidence to have 2 of them doing it (the other being Tariga), so Adrenas is now a green Twi'lek. Uthar now has 150 vitality points (unless he is poisoned), so any upstart student is going to have a serious challenge.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Just drag everything into the Override folder. This mod requires the appearance.2da file. So if you have another mod using one, some editing is required. My 2da file has Bastila's envmap set to CM_Baremetal, I haven't changed it because Bastila mods seem to be popular, and lot of them need that setting. Here are the changes needed for the mod to work:

*human may also work

BUGS: From my experience, Yuthura doesn't wear the robes in the Cantina or the Academy, though she will wear them at Tomb of Naga Sadow.
