For best effect, I suggest saving right after killing Davik and waiting until the next release before continuing.
SHAMELESS POSER KOTOR REMIX
Knights of the Old Republic is a great game, but it's hard to see that after you've played it long enough. I personally have had a lot of trouble getting back into it after playing KOTOR2, because even though the story is much better in the original and the game overall is more polished, KOTOR2 just had some wonderful bells and whistles that are very much missed on subsequent playthroughs. Just to give myself a reason to work my way through KOTOR again after a crash took out all of my savegames, I decided I'd get to work on a mod of my own. The Shameless Poser KOTOR Remix is a collection of different features and alterations made to the game in order to help revitalize gameplay a little bit.
-A new character, Sergeant Garon Tetra, is recruitable in the Undercity. He takes the place of the previous Endar Spire survivor, and joins your party if given the Rakghoul serum. He stays on until you get to Dantooine, at which point he leaves the party and is assigned to guard duty near the place where the Ebon Hawk docks. He plays a little like Canderous used to, but has Weapon Specialization in rifles rather than Heavy Weapons.
-Kirby, a robe salesman, is now on Dantooine.
-Juhani has her own lightsaber now.
WHAT THIS MOD DOES (OLD NEWS, OLD VERSIONS):
-T3-H8 is now recruitable. You can use him to enter the Sith Base on Taris as early as level two, but this is a self-correcting problem as the guards will turn you into hamburger before you get far enough to screw up anything. He doesn't have his portrait after literally hours of trying. If anyone can get some good portraits of T3-H8 and send me a working portraits.2da and p_t3h8.utc, I'd be very much obliged (and put your name in the credits).
-Soldiers now dress like soldiers.
-Republic Mod Armor is now found in the chest next to your bunk on the Endar Spire.
-Carth now wears a Republic officer's uniform. If you're a fan of his original duds, don't fret! His bomber jacket is now an item only he can wear, and provides minimal protection from the bad guys. It's upgradeable, too.
-Ever wonder why Bastila uses a double-bladed saber throughout the game, but always uses a single-bladed one in the movie scenes? I know I have. Check out the Endar Spire and you might find it...
-There are three other new lightsabers. You get one by recruiting Jolee Bindo, one by killing Darth Bandon, and one by killing Calo Nord. They don't have new models or textures (because I'm an idiot), but they do have their own strengths and weaknesses for you to explore. Expect many more of these in a later update.
-Jolee also has his own robe. Expect more of these character-specific outfits in a later update.
-New portraits for everyone but Trask.
-I've slowed down the force power progression so that you don't end up like I always do; taking powers you don't even want just because you have to. The shorter list is meant to benefit you as a player, not hinder you, and I think you'll find that things work smoother with fewer powers.
-All skills are now class skills for everyone. This allows the player character and the NPCs to be a little more versatile. The skill choices for the NPCs reflect this.
-All characters have had their attribute scores altered so they are on the same thirty point scale as the player's character. This means that Bastila has suffered a little, Canderous has had a slight boost, and the others have just had some minor changes.
-Most NPCs have seen their feat selections changed up a little bit. The biggest of these changes is that Canderous is now a capable attacker at any range, but there are subtle differences for almost every character.
-Much like in The Sith Lords, characters will now regenerate Vitality Points out of combat. Also, Force Point regeneration has been increased by 50%. This should reduce the period of time you spend just standing around waiting after a tough battle.
-Canderous now comes with an extra Prototype Vibroblade, so he can put his newfound melee abilities to use "out of the box."
What this mod will do in the future:
-After becoming a Jedi, train an apprentice!
-Actual decision making when creating your first lightsaber!
This mod has been done by Shameless Poser (Clayton Wick). His bare-bones writing site is at http://www.shamelessposer.4t.com

This mod would not have been possible without Fred Tetra's KOTOR Tool. KOTOR Tool takes an impossible task and turns it into something that's just staggeringly counterintuitive. In many ways, he's the backbone of the KOTOR and KOTOR2 modding community. Send all of your thanks, booze and hookers to http://kotortool.home.comcast.net/index.html
Also, the folks at Holowan Labs are some very nice people who have lots of very nice tutorials. They're at http://www.starwarsknights.com
