Wearable Sith Uniforms



Lactose Intolerant returns with another mod for us to play with for the original Knights of the Old Republic game. This time he made it so you can wear those Sith Uniforms you see throughout the game. This idea has been done by Archer before, so it isn’t new, the approach is different than Archer’s however.

The author made changes to the appearance.2da file instead of having model changing files. It’s also the basic clothing class, which replaces all of the selectable PC’s and party members as seen in the screenshot. The idea behind this is to have you be able to wear those uniforms since you do at one point in K1 become a student at the Sith Academy on Korriban.

Even though the author made two wearable items with this mod, one labeled male and the other female, I don’t think it really makes a difference which one you wear anyway because your PC being either male or female will still look the same since it is an appearance.2da change. It also means that all default clothing will make you look like you’re wearing a Sith uniform. Also the author attempted to make the new clothing/uniform worth 7000 credits, but didn’t change the additional cost in the UTI files, so it will still be worth 1 credit.

This mod does use the TSL Patcher to make the changes to the appearance.2da file automatically and make this mod compatible with other mods you are using out there that use the appearance.2da file. Enjoy! :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.

1. Introduction
Don't you feel a little left out whenever you're in the Sith Academy on Korriban as one of the hopefuls, but you don't get to put on what the others are wearing? I've attempted to change this by creating this mod. Have fun using it! :)

2. Installation
Extract the folder "Wearable Sith Uniforms" to a suitable place (e.g. your Desktop), and then double-click TSLPatcher.exe. The rest is automatically done for you.

3. Included Files for the Override folder

4. Features
This mod will allow your party characters to wear the standard Sith Uniform (1st variation) when you get to Korriban and join the Sith Academy. Now you won't look out of place when you compete against the likes of Lashowe and Shaardan to become a full-fledged member of the Sith. :)

There are 3 sets of the Uniform for each gender, meaning you get 6 in total. All human characters will be able to wear it.

5. Usage
To get the Uniforms, just obtain them from the footlocker nearest to you after listening to Uthar when you get accepted into the Sith Academy.

If you don't mind cheating to get them, just access the console by pressing the ` button, then use the "giveitem" cheat for the .uti files mentioned in section 3.

For example, to get the male Uniform, type the following in the console:
giveitem sith_uniform

6. Issues
In order to do as little appearance.2da tweaking as possible, I've made the Uniform a disguise item, which will allow your characters to take on a guise specified in the aforementioned .2da file. However, this causes some issues...

a) Your human characters can wear BOTH male and female Uniforms, since there is no gender check available for equipment in this game. This means you can make Carth have the body of a lady (well worth a chucke) by equipping the female Uniform on him.

b) Headgear will not show up on your characters when the Uniforms are equipped. This might not be a bad thing, since many people have complained that the most of the headgear are aesthetically unpleasing.

c) The biggest problem of them all... Your characters will be headless(!) whenver they transition to a new area with the Uniforms equipped.
