Are there any...

Mods being done that change NPC behaviour based on their alignment? IE, when you are Darkside and corrupt the good NPCs they still react badly when you do evil things. I was thoroughly disapointed that corrupting them was really just an aesthetic thing.

That's one of the things that can't be editted, i believe...
It's H-A-R-D-C-O-D-E-D (dirty word)

It's kind of lame, i had an extremely evil Handmaiden that would still flip out if i'd kill any innocent people.

Arg! Well that bites. Isn't it odd to see these demon possessed characters getting worked up over a stolen medikit or nosy guard you have to silence ;p.

That is not hardcoded, however it would be a lot of work to do it in a believable way since you need to do a lot of dialog editing to alter their behavior consistantly.

And then there is the problem with voice-over. It would sound a bit bad if your party members no longer speaks when they are twisted to evil. Re-using existing voice-over would severely limit what you could make them say.

I really hate hearing handmaiden or Mira complain with dialog that is consistant with their original nature. You don't get any sense that they've been corrupted by the darkside other than their look, which only puts things at odds. I'd personally rather they said nothing at all, rather than berate me for what they shouldn't care about. Because of that I play exactly how I did in KOTOR 1, using only evil characters HK-47, and Canderous. As funny as it might be when you do something truely terrible and hear them complain it's just not very believeable. At least in KOTOR 2 there is Atton and Visas so you can have evil force users without mods. Ah well, probably another thing left untouched due to the rush of dev.
