Could You Be A Bit Clearer?

I Dont Understand Exactly What You Are Asking

You know how you can make your own type of armor with any retuxture you make? Well what i want to do is make a handmaidens robe to look like her exact clothing default(well not exactly b/c i want to use a reskin i made). I do not want it to be clothing(as in the menu screen it just says clothing, when u equip it to Bao-Dur it looks like Bao-Durs default clothing, when u equip it to the handmaiden it looks like the handmaidens default clothing). So basically i want to make a robe that looks like the handmidens default clothing, but is not clothing.

Im not even sure if its possible but ive been pondering it and i would like to know.
What do i use as the base item? Basic Clothing? if so how. ive tried changing the body variation and the texture variation but i just cant seem to get the handmaidens default clothing.

Any help would be apreciated.

From What You Just Said I Gather You Want To Make A Robe With Handmaidens Clothing Model With A Custom Skin Only Useable By Handmaiden?

First You Will Need To Make Your Item's UTI File With KotOR Tool

In The Model Variatoin Box You Will Need To Put A Number 50 For Example

Then You Need To Extract The MDL And MDX Files For Handmaidens Default Clothing And Rename Them As a_robe_50.mdl and a_robe_50.mdx

(Make Sure The .MDL Is Not An Ascii Though)

Now Hex Edit The MDL To Point At Your Custom Texture

Is That What You Needed?

If You Meant You Wanted To Make A Custom Skin Variation Of Handmaidens Clothing For All Party Members Let Me Know And I'll Do My Best To Help

Good Luck!


EDIT: Also Make Sure You Make Both Male AND Female Versions Of The Texture

Yes, If He Follows My Last Post He Can Set Wheather He Wants It As Clothing Or Robes In The UTI File

Sweet i think im getting the hang of it. Thanx.

Just a few things i still have unclear:

1) Does it matter what I use as my base item? Such as Jedi Robe or Clothing. This is just mere curiosity. I would think not but im not sure about that.

2) I need a hex editor. ok. Can i get one for free? If so where. If not, which one would you recomend?

3) What are the file names for the handmaidens .mdl and .mdx? KT and i arent that very good friends yet ;)

thanks in advance.

I'm Not Sure About The Base Item But Leave It As Clothes Just To Be Sure

As For The Hex Editor I'd Recommend XVI32 Which You Can Get Here (http://www.handshake.de/user/chmaas/delphi/download/xvi32_231.zip) It's Free And It's Awsome :D

Not Sure About The Model Names Though As I No Longer Have TSL Installed

It Won't Work! :cry8:

Good Luck With The Mod!
