You guys are like awesome!!!! I just started modding by combining some pre-existing .2da files (don't worry I'm not posting them on the net or taking credits for them) and that took me like an hour and I still couldn't get it right. I don't know how you guys do it, but you just do it. You work your butt off like a :atat: or a :bdroid2: or a :deathstar or a :deathii: or a:fett:, sorry, got a little carried away there, (just wanted to try the icons :p ). I like to thank you for all the hard work you've done, you sacrificed your own time just to fulfill our enjoyments. I know this is probably nothing and theres nothing physical I can present to you, but I'd just like to dedicate this post to you guys. If I had a medal, you guys would get it!

BTW can you help me with a minor setback? I tried to combine Shioman's Bandon mod with a couple other mods but there seems to be something wrong with the appearance or head.2da files because no matter what I do I always get Uthar when I'm suppose to get Bandon. I copied everything exactly using the KOTOR tool, I still can't get it right, please help.
Much appreciated, Thanks in advance.

I wholeheartedly agree. There's some excellent modders here, and seeing what they have done has inspired me to try it myself.

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, consider yourselves flattered.

Hehehe...

Well, for what it's worth, you're welcome.

As to the mod combination problem... can you be a little more specific? What mod(s) are you trying to combine, and what exactly happens when you do?

Helps a lot if Ima fix sumfin if I know wha's broke. ;)

I agree, I've tried to do some small scale modding and found myself up to my eyeballs. The modders here do a very good job.

The ones I tried to combine was, Shimoan's bandon&uthar mod, Human mission mod, and nequam's new female face mod. so far i managed to combine all of them but for some reason i keep getting 2 Uthar heads instead of 1 Uthar and 1 Bandon head. I get a Uthar head with a Bandon portrait and it's really weird.

I know that skinning can be a pain in the ass in this game. There seems to be a lot of stretching and warping of the textures. Trying to get a straight line is a work of art in itself. :)
