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!

Whats re-textured up to now?

  • Manaan
  • Tatooine (WIP)

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 :)

I have a question, will this work with any other mods that may be implemented? If so, say that the mod uses some textures that are custom obviously those won't be HD because here are no HD versions of those textures, but will the other textures that are used in the mod which are from the vanilla game, will the HD textures be applied to those as well?

Well so your question is if the mod also works with other mods which use the vanilla textures? I think if you install this mod as last it should replace the textures used in the other mods(of course only when I have already made hd versions of it)

Terrific Mod! I have found a problem though, unless its on my end somewhere. The file LRK_dor01 is messed up and makes it so the temple type doors are see through. I also noticed that there is a file with the same name with "temp" added to the end. Not sure if that effects anything. Anyway, i just removed that file from my override and am stuck with default texture for now. Thanks for any help!

i think its great kotor is not forgotten, its one of the top rpg games and defenetley one of the best star wars games

Why don't you join up with some other mods and make a grand kotor modification, that would be sick :)

-there are some good quality mods that add new planets to the game
-there are mods that restore or add qualty conent perhaps include them

-ALSO if someone has heard of something like this pls let me know if not i want to ask is it doable for kotor/kotor2 > making a mod that changes game camera to be in old school top view (bud doesnt effect dialogue camera) anyone heard?

oh all right :)
well there are much much more content mods for kotor2 the sith lords because it was a more ambitious priject and alot of content didnt make it to the game, there are some very awesome mods for it...

but if you meant kotor i can only say
-brotherhood of shadows: solomon's revenge
-ryloth planet mod (saw it right here)
-enchanced mercant
-force pack 2.0 (added both lightsaber stances and force)

there were many more mods for kotor 1 i would suggest (like the alien companion who had really rich dialogue subtitles (alen talk)) and a lot more but with the filefront and other sites shutting down dont rly know

-there are alot of good mods for kotor 2 which make it more complete and all

-there is even a fan-made unofficial sequel to the game
