[TSL] New Selectable PC - Reskinned Zherron Released!

New Selectable Player Character - Reskinned Zherron

Download it from PCGM


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:

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

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
************************************************** *************************

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!

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.

Thanks to Fred Tetra for his amazing Kotor Tool. Without it, none of this
would be possible.

Thanks for stoffe-mkb- for creating and providing use of her great TSL Patcher. Now, you donít have to worry about .2da compatibility and all that merging files business. Great job stoffe!

Thanks to T7nowhere, for giving me some great tips on portrait-making.

Thanks to all the folks at Holowan labs, for providing guidance and
encouragement along the way. You guys rule!

Conditions of Use:
You are free to use this mod for your own personal use. However, I must grant proper permission for you to include anything from this mod in a public mod. If I do grant permission, make sure to give me
proper credit in your readme and include this readme file with your mod.
