THIS IS GOING TO BE A LENGTHY POST, SO BARE WITH ME PLEASE
Hey, I've been doing a lot of stuff recently; playing games, reading stories, writing fics, and I had an idea. Well, several, really. And since I'm still just mucking around with mods, and have no idea how to upload them for sharing, I'm stuck with having to suggest. And they're intended for KotOR one, but if you think they could go with KotOR II, knock yourself out.
I came across a mod once that went like this; you talk to Trask at the beginning of the game, and there is an extra bit of dialogue about what species you are (alien heads were included in the mod), and whatever you say you are, you get a feat for (if you select Duros, you get 'Duros', which gives some sort of boost).
Over the last few days, I've been assembling a mod suggestion based on that (had the idea, but built on it before posting. It's no use putting up a suggestion if it only gets 'what is this I don't even...?):
Now, I know what you'll think straight up; '*sigh* another one? Really?'
I know. Its a common idea, and not many people bother to try (as far as I know, the classes things is either hard coded or insanely difficult), but this isn't just a 'new classes thing; there are other things included, namely, powers, weapons, feats, and crystals.
Okay, here we go.
First, I'll start with the powers, since its a lead up to the class idea. Note: Unless otherwise specified, these are restricted by armor.
-Battle Meditation (Strictly K1. Instead of having it as a useless icon in Bastilla's power tab, I'd like to give it an application; activates all buff powers that she has (I use Bastilla as a party booster, so it seemed appropriate))

Right, like I said at the top, there was a mod where you got the species benefit through a feat. You could design access to these powers/classes as requiring the feat of the class.
But if you think you can add these classes for real, good luck to you.
Okay, here they are, descriptions and all.
First off, if you like the story feel, you could have a holocron in the temple or academy that will give them out, but please remember they are not available to every class, only two to each, though two classes can select the same class;
There are some born in the galaxy with the gift – or curse – of summoning dark and twisted things from the depths of the dark side itself. A Sith Sorcerer is typically one such being, trained to conjure that which gives the dark side of the Force its namesake, twisting and manipulating the now and future to their malevolent will. Due to this, however, they are restricted to wearing strictly robes.
Powers: (NOTE: This is optional; go crazy if you like)
Cloud the Force
The Jedi and Sith probe the future in combat, though for the Sith, their interest in the future ends there; they would rather manipulate or dominate the future. The Jedi see the future as what it is; an ever shifting thing, merciless in its ways of shattering plans. The Jedi Prophet is a rare individual, revered in the archives of the Jedi Order, able to probe not the immediate future, but what will be after the rise and fall of empires, even after the galaxies have turned around each other.
Calming Aura 1-2
The Mage is a practitioner of arcane arts and rituals inherited from the ancient Sith. As is inherent with their practices, their mentality is one of looking to the past to dominate the now. As they take a more active role on the field, they typically wear medium armor that, while durable, is still flexible enough for their various roles, and does not restrict the use of most Force powers.
Not all Jedi are active in the galaxy. Some remain in the libraries, studying the past histories of both the Jedi Order and the galaxy. Sadly, even these are required to put aside their roles as learners and step into the fray of war, dwindled as the Jedi ranks are. Though they are limited in the arts of combat, they have gleamed various secrets of the Force through their studies.
Sith alchemy is an area of study in the Sith that Relies heavily on the understanding of the flesh. Contradictory in nature, it focuses less on hindering the enemy and more on aiding one’s allies, though they are still perfectly capable of causing great damage. Wears medium or heavy armor.
Cloud the Force
The fragility of peace is defended by the tip of the sword. The pen is mightier than the sword. Actions speak louder than words. Those that keep the peace in the galaxy, smoothing differences between worlds and races, juggle these words endlessly, working tirelessly to preserve that which civilisation itself is built upon. As not all negotiations are non-aggressive, they typically wear medium or heavy armor.
The strongest Warriors of the Sith are trained to slay the strongest adversaries, and destroy the mightiest of Jedi. Though their training dictates they restrict themselves to the direct approach, they are fully able to take the more subtle path, armed with the arts of subterfuge and shadow. Prepared to lay waste to even the heaviest installations, they wear heavy armor at all times.
Sneak attack 1-10
Many padawans in the Order are chastised for expressing the opinion that the evils in the galaxy should be actively sought out. There are masters that embrace these thoughts. The Jedi Crusader is one who doesn’t wait for the dark side to wax full on the face of the galaxy, instead taking pre-emptive action against that which they find in the shadows they brave. In readiness for the challenges and adversities that inevitably face, they constantly wear the heaviest armor.
Calming Aura 1-2
No colors here, make those yourselves
Dathomir (+1dex, +3blaster deflect, +2will)
Kaas (1d6 Dark Side damage. If target fails save of DC=10+ wisdom modifier, they are paralyzed by fear)
YOu can make whatever ones you like; there's hundreds of designs
(base stats of lightsaber (including the deflect feature), but only upgradeable with energy projecter/vibration cell/alloy.
Alloy-----+3 Light Side damage
V.Cell----+5 base/max damage
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that's it. If you think you can do it, go ahead, but feel free to take bits and pieces (its not like I can claim plagiarism, since I've put the idea out there).
It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
