Veteran Modder Helpful! 
And we're not mean people, modders I mean. If we see a feasible request, we do it. But so many requests are simply repeated or request things that can't be done.

"Can someone makes Revan's cape non-starchy?"

"Can someone make it so I can have 9 party members with me at all times?"

Here's a funny one a buddy provided:

"i want a lightsaber that can shoot knives, please PM me when its done kthnxbye"

I don't mind replying to people requests when they're new, but some of this is common sense. People should do a bit of reading before they make their requests, to get an idea of what can and cannot be done. It's common sense, I'll use the Revan cape as an example. This is such a universally wanted mod, that if it was possible, don't you think someone would have done it already?

As for telling me that I "had to," you replied to my explanation saying "you still haven't explained why my idea can't be done" which is a bit pushy IMO. What I guess I should say, is it can't be done well. For one, the shirt would have to be remodelled from scratch, as there's not shirt mesh beneath the jacket, if you remove it you won't have a shirt, you'll have holes in Atton's body where the jacket used to be. Body models are such a tricky thing. There's only two people who come here regularly that I know of who are experienced enough to remodel and keep the anims in the new shirt, and neither one of them would have the time to do this. One of them doesn't even look at the request thread/now-sub-forum. The repeat requests like the ones I've mentioned annoy him much more than they annoy me. Let alone Atton AND Mira. Then you need to find an appropriate baseitem for the new jacket, since the Kotor rule is One Baseitem = One Model. For armor anyway. The best choice for Atton would probably be the Dancer outfit, as it has the same base stats as clothing. (Nothing at all.) And there's not really anything for Atton there. As far as Mira is concerned, being female, she has NO extra columns in appearance.2da, so you'd have to replace something.

It's a shame D333 locked the thread when she did, I was editing my post, and I had a really funny mock-up of a forum rule involved too.
