You can start with these tutorials: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=592

I recommend that you start with making a simple item edit :)

Yep, that's the best. But beware, if you save your file, it MUST end with a .utc ,if it doesn't, it wouldn't work.

Tools I would recommend are KotOR Tool a savegame editor and Gimp and do you know what (spesificly) you want to do?

I was thinking, like the others have already said, to start off with some basic items and maybe changing how thry look ad their stats

For that you want KotOR tol and Gimp like I said before Gimp is like photoshop but free and KotOR tool is a basic moding tool

EDIT:
Well you have to retrieve a file from kotor tool (the file you want to edit) it will end with .tga and open gimp the open that file in gimp and edit like you would in photoshop i no longer have the tools as i am retired from moding for now and if you need more in depth version of what i just said check the tutorials but if you have different questions ask away i cant send this as a PM apperantly you cant recieve them

I would also recommend reading some of the great tutorials on here and Kotor Files. You may wanna play around with KT and then read guides on whatever seems interesting. Welcome to the community!

the only .tga files i could find were lightmaps. Are those files for the itmes or something else? and if those are the files for the items how do i know which lightmap is which item?
