I've been looking around at mods related to running the game as a grey force user and saw that it seems to be impossible to create new PrC's because force using classes are hardcoded. My question is would it be possable to change the requirements on the PrCs to open them up to grey jedi? This would either be reducing the neccesary DS or LS points needed to '0' or adding an aditionnal peramiter that less than 10% light and dark that would open up both set of PrCs to the player.

Is this doable and if so has it been done?

I ask because I saw someone else ask about changing the level that the PrC dialogue occurs in so I thought "Hey, if you can change the level can you change the alignment requirements?"

Since the prestige classes are handed out in a conversation with Kreia it should be possible to do by altering the call to the conditional script that determine when that dialog becomes available.

This should be pretty easy to do since the force alignment range is set by the second (P2) and third (P3) parameter when the c_pc_prestige conditional script is called by the dialog node (Entry 587 in kreia.dlg in my game). Those values are currently set to 25 and 75, meaning the character must be 25 or lower on the scale (0-100) towards the dark, or 75 or higher towards the Light. Setting both values to 50 should make the prestige classes available to all alignments.

However, in the case of the Sith Lord and Jedi Master classes it probably won't work flawlessly since they have a few feats and force powers that only work if the character's alignment remains true to the class. You'll no longer be able to use the Corruption powers if your Sith Lord turns to the Light Side for example. I don't remember if those turn off as soon as the character is no longer Dark / Light though, of just when they get to the opposite alignment.

Crush Oppositions (Sith Lord) and Inspire Followers (Jedi Master) won't work as soon as you go gray, these are the only alignment restricted force powers, as for the influence boosting feats (Dark Side Corruption and the other one) it's more difficult to say, i guess you'll have to check out k_inc_utilities.nss (the alignment routines should be there if i'm not mistaken) and see if any alignment check is actualy performed
