I want to get to the point that I can make new PC heads, items, armor, etc. I have a little 3D experience with modeling in Blender. Beyond that, I know nothing about how modding in KOTOR works. I have read tutorials, but they seem to assume that you know something about the work flow. Can someone explain it to me?
How do I access the models?
How do I change them / create new ones?
How do I save and apply them?
What do I need to do each step?
Can I use Blender, or do I have to use Gmax?

Help would be much appreciated. I cannot wait to start modding away. :smash:
Thanks.

Welcome...

Slow down now... ok... re-read the tutorials... I thought the same thing you did, but I also ran through them really quickly. They really do help... but first off... make sure you have Kotor Tool.

First off, welcome to the forums :)

Second, yes you do need Gmax as it can be used with NWMax. You could also use 3DSMax though that would cost .

Thirdly, as Reuben said, slow down! Certain members here may make modding KotOR look easy but it's really not.....

Good luck!
