Hi there, just started modding a bit and have made a few nice adjustments such as changing the handmaidens robe to look like her default clothes (cant get enuf of the hood) but there is one thing i just cant crack and thats making kreia evil. I havent gotten very far so i dont know if she changes in the story but she looks awsome in the cutscene where sion pounds her into the grnd. Anyway ive managed to change the face and body textures to the evil form by taking the tgas and sticking them in the overdrive folder, however in game there is a lighting effect on the body that gives it a yellowy glow. If someone could explain how to remove this (if possible) i would realy appreciate it

I belive this was a problem with the model file for kriea, i had the EXACT same problem, after spending literally days trying to make the head clothes match the body clothes :p

There is a fixed model i think, i know theres a mod that adds a caboodle of robes.

Hope this was of some help :)

Welcome to the forums, RossAs (and Cactus Jack,too!)! :dmaul3:

I am only a nOOb to MODding, so I can't be much direct help - however, here are a couple of ideas for solving this:

1st- Cactus Jack gave you good advice on grabbing 'Kreia's Assorted Robes' MOD - by the great ChAiNz.2da (MODder AND modERATOR). This is definitely one of the top 5 MODs available for TSL, IMHO. Not only will this MOD allow Kreia's robes to switch to the more desirable colors of the standard robes, it also adds an all new sidequest and a whole new area (Medical Unit on Telos) - and some cool all-new dialog between the Exile and Kreia, culminating when the Exile completes the sidequest and presents Kreia with an item she thought was destroyed...there is also the inclusion of the MOD that allows you to ask Bao-Dur's Remote what your current influence over all your party members is. This one is a 'must-have' for ALL MOD fans- be sure to thank ChAiNz for his great work! :rock:

2nd- Have you heard of tk102's KSE (KotOR 1 and TSL savegame editor)? It is simply the #1 MOD/utility available for K1 and TSL! This one allows you to alter the appearance of ANY of your party members (along with about 1000 other cool options) - there is a plethora of different Kreia appearances, including the 'evil Kreia' you are trying for - simply open the savegame that you wish to alter (if you have more than 1 save), click the (+) next to NPCs and change it to a (-), this will create a drop-down 'tree' listing all your current NPC party members. Next, select Kreia - scroll to her Appearance and select it: now a huge menu of appearances (500+) appears to the right of the screen - scroll to Party NPCs and find the Kreia appearance you want (I believe it is 'evil Kreia') - select it - click the 'Apply Changes' button- check your NPC Kreia Appearance and make certain it shows as 'Evil Kreia' - once it is listing her new appearance, simply click the 'Commit Changes' button and you should get a confirmation box saying 'saved succesfully' - now when you re-load your saved game Kreia should have the 'Evil' look! :maul:

Here's where you can get KSE: www.StarWarsKnights.com/php.tools

3rd- <Shameless Plug!!!> Darkkender, one of the true Master MODders is beginning a MOD training class where this and all MOD subjects are going to be actively covered. I am already signed on, and I would encourage you, Cactus Jack, and all other nOOb MODders to join up! If you are interested here is the link to the MODders Basic Training thread:

I hope this has helped, and I hope to see you in class! :dsaber:

doh i didn't think of that lol, wud hav saved me a lot of time :P anyway using Kreia's Assorted Robes i simply copied the evil tga and pasted it ontop and it works - cudnt figure out what settings are applied to ChAiNz.2da's tgas but hey no more yellow glow! :D
