About the mod:

After i first played the game, I decided to improve the graphics of this game, because I really like playing KotOR and the gameplay, but the, for our time now, bad graphics often prevented me from playing it.

So this modification improves all the graphics in-game, by replacing all textures, models and effects after i finished it.

Also the Cutscenes and Videos will be completely remade.
finally, when i´ve finished all the graphics, I may add some new Items.

Also find the mod on Facebook:


Tutorial - How to install KotOR mods added!


  • textures: 20%

  • Models: 1%
    released: 0%

Whats re-textured up to now?

  • Endar Spire
  • Taris
  • Dantooine
  • parts of Korriban
  • Manaan
  • Tatooine (WIP)
  • Sithbases
  • Ebon Hawk

Up to now this mod runs fine on Windows Xp and Win 7(the game only runs with fix below). Mod is tested on linux aswell and works. Also it works fine with the downloadable Steam version of the game.

Windows Vista/7 Fix:


Widescreen mode:



If you are able to remake textures with photoshop or can make 3d models, than you may can help me, i need it. Retexturing is hard work and it´s even more harder if you are just one person.
So if you can help me, or know someone who may could, then PM me!

Hey guys,

first of all, im glad of all your support, it´s nice to read all this positive recognition of all you!

Then of course, i promised you an update, it´s later then i suggested but here it is.
It will be online on sunday, and it will be a fully automated installer, where you just have to select the parts of the mod you want to install and there it goes.

It will include all the previous updates and releases as well as Tatooine HD WIP textures.
I wasn´t able to finish all the textures of Tatooine but i give u a little bit here. Lightsaber-Addon will up to now still remain as an extra-download, because i will focus on models when i finished most of the envoirmental textures of the game.

If you find any bugs in that new update when it´s released let me now and i will try to fix it as soon as possible.

In addition to that, i really look for some help, for one person it´s real hard to do all this work alone, so if you know someone, who may able to help me with modeling and or texturing or you might yourself able to do so, then please let me know, i take every little bit of help i can take.

Finally guys, some new screenshots, and specialy some before/after screens of every section that i retextured up to now will follow on sunday too.

Have a nice weekend folks :)

Yes it does. What I did was let it install into another folder, extracted Override from the finished install, then pasted it and merged it with the Override folder of the actual game. C:/Program files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps,common/swkotor/Override. Just paste the Override folder from the install to that and you're all set!

Which other folder exactly did you let it install into first before you added it to the Override folder?

So basically what you've got done so far is all of Taris, and the upper parts of Manaan?

Wow! This is amazing! Well done! I love Kotor, and this mod is really making me want to replay it! Great use of the installer, and well done on each of these textures! Now if only I could play in 1920x1080!

will you also be adding more than textures(like a cutscene or something to replace the evil black screen when this certain event happens)

Yes, I will replace all Cutscenes but not now, cause it´s enough work "just" to redo houndreds of textures. I´m also going to remodel everything in the future
