I'm completely new to this, and I have a few questions...please don't hurt me if they sound stupid.

1) How would I go about messing with attributes of in-game items, particularly ones that are player-specific? (For example, how would I alter Mira's rocket launcher armband so anyone could use it?)

2) How can I add custom items to the game? :blast5:

3) Mapping. How can I create new environments and stick them on a map?

Usually it's enough (and preferable) to add item properties to the UTI templates of the items you want to modify. This can be done fairly easily with KotorTool.

The Wrist Launcher item however has a feat requirement set, making only those who have the Weapon Proficiency: Wrist Mounted Rockets feat able to equip it. (Only Mira has that feat normally.)

If you don't want to give everyone that feat, you'll have to edit line 91 in baseitems.2da and change the value in the reqfeat0 column to ****. That will remove the feat requirement for the Wrist Launcher base item.

Those tutorials are quite old. You should really start with the stickies at the top of the forums and use the "Do you want to mod sw-kotor" thread only if you don't find what you are looking for in the tutorials posted at the top of the forums, which have been reviewed and completed at the time TSL was released.

Perhaps its time to change the name of that thread and remove the "Then start here" part. We now have more up to date and specialized areas of the forum. Your call Super Mod. ;)
