Creator's Notes
________________________________

While creating my first recruit mod (not Telkka Zil), I found that if I used T3-M4 as the replaced NPC, then regular size NPC's would only appear from the knees up on the character sheet. While brainstorming for my next project it occured to me that I could create a Yoda-like NPC to replace T3-M4 without having to figure out how to get around the character sheet issue (call me picky).

I based his stats off of Zaalbar. It seemed perfectly reasonable that if Wookies were inherently strong and tough, then Mendah's race could be inherently wise and charasmatic (hence their apparent Force affinity). In other words, I took Zaalbar's stats and switched them around so that I had a super-powerful Jedi Consular rather than a super-strong Wookie.

You'll find Mendah in the Sith Base on Taris. To trigger his spawn script, negotiate a peaceful resolution with the receptionist when you enter the base. You will find him later in the level.

Major kudos and thanks to Colja. Not only did he make this terrific skin but he was gracious enough to let me use it.

Too funny! I should have one more LS in the next couple of days, then I plan on turning my attention to a few DS NPC ideas that I've had wandering around in the attic.

Unless the devs created a sand people clothing/sith armor model for Master Vandar, there isn't much I'm going to be able to do.

Thanks for pointing out the bug.

It isn't exactly a bug though, because both of those outfits are disguises, I bet if you put the Reven Redemtion Robes on him he would grow too.

You are right Mav! :D

It's definately not a bug, but it is how the game works. A disguise is using the actual model, animations, and skin of a particular NPC.

Looks awesome. Though you used the same outfit as Yoda I think and he looks too much like him. A diff outfit/skin color would be cool

But awesome work!
