As my first mod I would like to make a 4 item set mod consiting of robe, gauntlet, belt and a special lightsaber. How could I do this and please can you explain in drooling monkey terms...

Gaunlets and Belts are simple .gff file editing. Just find the templates for one in Templates.bif > Item Blueprints, and edit them to your heart's content.

Lightsabers are a tad more difficult, but a full tutorial is here:

Robes are easy to .gff edit like the Gauntlets and Belts, but assuming that you want a custom appearance, you will also need to edit the correct .tpc files and if you want to model it, the .mdl and .mdx files aswel.

Sorry if the wording's a little too advanced. If this is so, just ask me to elaborate on what you don't understand.

Oh so you just want to edit stats ? If thats the case just download kotor tool (if you dont know what that is google it) and tinker with it abit untill you find .UTI files tree and then just find the name of the robe/gauntlet/armor/belt or lightsaber and extract it and open it with kotor tool. Kotor tool will open up along with another window in which you can change stats like damage, protection etc. After you are done just save the file (override it to the place where u extracted the first time) and then just move that file to the override folder in Kotor and ur done. Basically ull have changed the stats on some item that is already ingame. If you do not want to change stats of anything ingame then change the name of the "your_item.uti" to watever u like, however then u cant find that item ingame and u have to use cheats "giveitem your_item".
Sorry for bad explanation but if u cant understand it there is alot of wonderful tutorials in holowan laboratories that are noob friendly. Alternatively you can just request which items you would like made with what stats, and since you dont even want custom skin they can be done fairly quickly by some1 with no hassle at all.
