Welcome to the Forums!


Well first you need Kotor Tool. Which you can get at the Tools page. Then you need to go to ERF's -- Texture Packs -- TPA -- and then go to the ship you want. Assuming you would want to retexture the Ebon Hawk, you would have to go into every single module Letter, IE: D -- DAN_xxx and look for the ebon hawk, you would have to do htis for each one.

What ship is it you watn to retexture?

The ship textures will not change what happens in CGI cutscenes, those are prerendered, So hte Leviathon, and Sith and Republic fighter are no go's. The republic cruiser you can do but it will only show up on Peragus.

AS for the ebon hawk, make sure you retexture it for every single module.

If you mean the Ebon hawk go to the Aurora Model and MDX section in the BIF -- Models section and Find ebon_01 i THINK and put them into a directory and use MDLOPS to make it an acsii model to open up in max, apply your texturre and your good.

I did this once (extracted the ebon hawk) to make a cgi cutscene. Works pretty well.

No, the ebon hawk is the only free model.
