[TSL] New Selectable PC - Reskinned Zherron Released!

New Selectable Player Character - Reskinned Zherron


Download it from PCGM

or

Insane Entertainment (My Site)

This mod has been sitting on my desktop for almost a month now. I finally decided to finish it up by making portraits and finishing the installer. I had actually planned on doing some vert changes on the head model, but it got complicated and I decided this wasn't the mod to do that on. So I'll save that for a futute mod... Anyways, I hope everybody likes the mod! Here's the readme:

Description:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
This mod adds a new playable character to TSL. The head is based on Zherron, the Khoonda militia leader. I have reskinned the head to make him appear younger, as well as made four Dark Side transitions from scratch. I have tried to make his fall to the Dark Side realistic, and I tried to stay away from the living undead DS transitions. There are 5 custom portraits included (1 normal, 4 DS).

List of Files:

Configuration Files:
appearance.2da - describes the appearance of the new PC
heads.2da - includes the new PC in the game
portraits.2da - includes the new portraits for the PC

DMHC01.tga - head texture
DMHC01d1.tga - DS transition 1 texture
DMHC01d2.tga - DS transition 2 texture
DMHC01d3.tga - DS transition 3 texture
DMHC01d4.tga - DS transition 4 texture

DMHC01.mdl - model file
DMHC01.mdx - model file

DMpo_HC01.tga - portrait file
DMpo_HC01d1.tga - portrait file
DMpo_HC01d2.tga - portrait file
DMpo_HC01d3.tga - portrait file
DMpo_HC01d4.tga - portrait file


Installation:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.If you haven't done so already, create a folder named "override" (without
quotes) in your KotOR II directory.

NOTE: this mod uses itemcreate.2da and itemcreatemira.2da files. If you are
already using such files, please read the disclaimer below. It's VERY
important that your .2da files aren't located within a sub-folder of your
override directory!


************************************************** *************************
IMPORTANT NOTE! The installer will NOT look for existing files within
sub-folders of the Override folder, just in the Override folder itself. If
you have modified versions of any of the above listed files sitting in
sub-folders, put them into into the main Override folder before running the
Installer.
************************************************** *************************

2. Next, run the installer application named "Install New PC-Reskinned Zherron.exe" that came with this mod. This will update the necessary game
files and install the Mod into your game. Make sure that there is a folder
named "tslpatchdata" present in the same folder the Installer application
is. This folder contains essential data files the installer needs.

NOTE: You have to run this installer for this mod to work. Simply copying
the files from TSLpatchdata doesn't work!


Uninstall:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Simply remove all files included in this mod from your override directory.


Known Issues:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are currently no known issues or problems with this mod. If you do
encounter any issues or problems, please alert me via the e-mail above. I
will try to fix them the best I can.
