well, biowrae has made it pretty obvious they will be giving no tools or help towards modding this game to the mod community at all. so it is going to be up to some third party to develop any tools, or ways of doing this.
in fact modding this game cannot even be discussed on the bioware site, without the topic being locked.
so let's hope someone out there who has the desire to do any skinning or player models for this game also has the ability to create, or find ways of doing this. or knows someone who can.
