This exact mod idea has been done before. Not that it is a bad thing. In fact, it’s a good thing for those who can’t mod worth a lick and have trouble using tk102’s KSE. There are many people out there like that. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. That is why we modders are here. So, please be courteous when making comments about how easy it is for you to make. Just remember there is always someone else out there that is better than you at modding and could poke fun at the fact they can do something you can’t do and brag how easy it is for them to do what you can’t. ;) Also, there are people who will be interested in this.
JcoolZombie returns with a very interesting mod. What this does is make your start off as a Wookiee in the original Knights of the Old Republic game. Now, I did say this has been done before, but it was done for Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords last year. So if you were looking for this to be finally made for the original KOTOR game, it’s finally here! :)
Usually you start a new game by selecting a new head, and class, etc. Well, this time the author used the KSE and changed the character appearance into a Wookiee and also changed the portrait to a Zaalbar one and uploaded a saved game for you to use. Imagine your “PC” (don’t want to give away spoilers :p) as a Wookiee after going through it. Oh, and he named him Chewbacca just like the previous TSL version of the mod did. (Don’t read this part if you don’t want to be spoiled) It will be interesting to see how the revelation scene plays out with a Wookiee model. Hopefully it won’t crash it. I’m not going to play through the game to find out so use at your own risk. I would like to hear reports about it even if it works fine and even screenshots if possible as I know others would like to also know how it plays out.
One thing to know is that the author had to choose is a character class. So I opened my game to check out what he selected and it was a scout. I was guessing that because that is the class Zaalbar is. Hanharr in the sequel is also a scout, so I suppose it’s fitting to choose that class. :p
Now, bare in mind that this is a mod you do not put in your override folder; you put it in your saves folder. It’s possible it will override a previous save and it could be one you want to save. If so, move it somewhere else as a backup or this will override it if you have the same saved game name in there. Well, what can I say, you get to be a Wookiee if you download and play with this. 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.
====================================================== A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC MODIFICATION ====================================================== AUTHOR: jcoolZombie EMAIL: jcoolZombie@yahoo.com Requested by: viscen NAME: Wookie as PC CREDITS: Just myself involved with editing the savegame; But, I would like to thank Chainz.2DA for uploading some savegames on LucasForums as "a Modder's Resource". Also, I'd like to thank tk102 for his wonderful KSE program; which if I hadn't used my effort on this mod would have been in vain. FILENAME: [K1] Wookie as PC.zip FILE SIZE: 341 KB DATE RELEASED: 04/18/2007 DESCRIPTION: You will play as a Wookie with Zaalbar's portrait. This savegame is at the start of the game on the Endar Spire. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Extract the "000002 - Game1" folder from the .zip into your "saves" folder. If you have a folder with the same name in there, you should make a backup because this would override the contents of that folder. COMMENTS: This is my first requested mod to make. I tried replacing one of the PC characters with a wookie; but, that didn't work. So, I did the next best thing: make a save game at the beginning of the game with the PC character as a Wookie. BUGS: There should be no bugs; But if there are, please let me know so that I can fix it. PERMISSIONS: This mod may be used without the explicit permission of the author.
