The PC Customization Pack I has been released!!

This mod will allow you to play with a red-haired female PC of your choice. It doesnt overwrite the existing PCs and it's COMPLETELY COMPATIBLE with all the other mods around!

This is the 1st part of a series of 4 Customization Packs: Red-haired females, red-haired males, blonde females and blonde males.

In itself it can be something pretty simple, but its one of a kind, as said before it's the 1st mod that guarantees compatibility, thanks to the KISS (Kotor Installer Script System) Installer allows to make changes to existing files like 2da using scripts. That way instead of putting all your own files overwriting existing ones, you make adjustments or additions to existing files instead, which allows mods to be installed next to eachother.
We encourage kotor modder's to make compatible mods! :thumb:

Please check this mod out, the rest of the Packs will be out soon as well. Thanks everybody at Holowan Labs, and a special thanks to Nequam for letting me edit his great female PC.

Good work Immortality, that is a nice collection of PCs :thumbsup: The KISS system seems to be very interesting, and modders here would be interested to know more about this system ;)

Thanks a lot, :)

Darth: yes, the tool seems promising... Theo did it right now without it, just his knowledge and programming skills, but has left the basis to build the tool, and even, the Customization Pack II will be made as only 1 biff! the Override folder would be as tidy as ever :)

Im guessing the KISS system works onlong the same sorts of lines as the weidu system.

Now it just needs to be made so a complete coding idiot like me can use it :D

This is really cool! I didn't know this could be done. Now you just have to make it so even the programmiing innept can use it ;) Very nice. If you guys can do that then there wouldn't be a need for my Holowan Plug-in. :)

I agree. Why you ask? Because I am one of those that happens to be programming inept.

Really cool. I hope this is the answer to the ever changing 2DA combination.

if its in vbasic, then i'm cool. if it's in c or java or another varient of c, then i'm way out of touch. if its all gui, then it'll be cool with everyone.

Heh, no, dont worry about difficulty, the good tool is the easy to use tool, and this will be a good tool :)

In theo's own words:

"The script language and structure will be easy enough, because it should be intuitive and easy to modify things. Since it's script driven, I didn't see the need for a gui so it's a commandline program, which only executes scripts during installation of a mod."

I took COBOL and C++ in junior college about a decade ago and learned absolutely nothing in both =)

I am amazed to see what other people are capable of. Can't wait to see what you've come up with Immortality.
