Question about KOTOR2 modding and balancig

So i decided to give Kotor 2 another run, as a jedi consular/sithlord. But the thing that worries me is how unbalanced the game is. Kotor 1, due to its not-so-powerful upgrading system and 20 level cap was easy, but still enjoyable experience. But in Kotor 2, after 20 level the game just get crazy when u didnt bulid your character right or repeteive if you did. Are there are any mods that try to balance Kotor 2? Also, is there a mod that allows you to get Mickel instead of Handmaiden as male?
And if the answers to these questions are no, is there a way to "strict" your player so he won't become so overpowered (like, stop leveling after 20 lvl, dont use force speed and workshop)
Also , are there any mods that fixes UI (like, not showing what effects are active on your character etc)

Current Game: Modding.. Wait is that a game?
Well if you want to make the game harder after level 20 try this mod. It's got a lot more difficulty settings. I have no clue about the Mickel mod sorry. If your looking to "rebalance" the entire game try this. if you want to just stop leveling up after level 20 use Kotor Tool (LINK) go to bifs----2ds's----xp.2da and delete all the lines after 20.
Once you delete all the lines after 20 put it in your override and enjoy.
Good luck- Supreme Kotor

Thank you very much for the response.
Will be there any downsides or problems after deleting all the lines so i won't level up anymore?
And also, sadly, i can't download anything from filefront

Hmmm that does complicate things. AFAIK no one that made the above mods are still around so Can't really ask them to host them somewhere else... I will set up a file that makes it so you can't go over level 20 (Can you download from mediafire?) I'm not at home right now though so give me a little but of time and I will post a download link on this thread.

Well im sorry but I very quickly found out it's impossible to make a level cap in TSL . I know this isn't exactly what your looking for but I was able to wip up a quick difficulty mod for you it's not much but it's better then nothing...? Download

Read-Me
Code:
Hey all!

Extra Special first warning: THIS MOD IS NOT INTENDED TO TAKE AWAY FROM ANY OF THE OTHER DIFFICULTY MODS I JUST MADE
THIS FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN'T DOWNLOAD FROM FILEFRONT. 

What this mod does:
Easy) Basicly halfs the difficulty of the original game.
Normal) Takes the game back to it's well... Normal settings
Hard) Almost doubles difficulty of the orginal game.
Harder) Just a little over double difficulty of the origionalgame
Hardest) It's well Hard I just made up some random numbers.... You will NEED to cheat to win.

Installation:
1)Copy whichever files of the difficulty you want.
2)Naviagte to your copy of Kotor:TSL
3)Pater the files into your Override folder (Dont have an Override folder? Go down to step 5) 
4)Play TSL and enjoy :).
(Stop Here if you have an Override folder)
5)Click New Folder (Upper right hand corner of scren usually)
6)Name it "Override" Woithout the quotes
7)Now paste the files you copied in step 1
8)Play TSL and enjoy :).

Credits:
Ummmm Fred Tetra for Kotor Tool. 

Usage and such:
Use in whatever you want even use the basic template to make your own mod I don't really care. 
Enjoy... Should be compatible with any mod that dosent use the following files: difficultyopt.2da & regeneration.2da even if sed mod does use these 
files it should still be fine. :).
(Im not responsible for damage and such not that there should be any) 

-Supreme Kotor
Just my own personal side note personnaly to add some variety I would do the following: Use hard difficulty and download High Level Force Powers by Stoffe. Download

-Supreme Kotor

Thank you, I will surely check it out, but what does it actually change?. I just installed aurora rebalancig mod and improved AI, and it's little crazy, since i just got a blaster that does 1-20 dmg on peragus and with Kreia spamming force due to improved AI fights are even easier. Btw, is the scene still alive, are worth while mod and skins still being made?

For Mical there's my Handmaiden 4 Females, Disciple 4 Males. Sadly, doesn't work yet with 1.8.2 or M4-78EP.

You asked a few different questions so I will have kinda a Q&A

Q: "what does it actually change?"

A: I understand overpowered wepons so I never even played with the wepons it strictly changes the enemy AI's damage scale nothing else.

Q: is the science still alive, are worth while mod and skins still being made?"

A: Short answer yes. Long awnser I can't vouch that any of these mods because there not actually out yet but some of the mods I'm excited for are: Logan and his team are making a Total conversion called Revenge of Revan. Fallen Gaurdian is making his Kotor 1 expansion Dantooine Tension. Vindikor is making his Kotor 1 expansion The Liberation of Mannan. And you know I have to add my own in I'm making a Kotor 2 expansion The Tomb of Ak-Rev. I'm not going I link to any of these though because they're all on the first page. Ps. Welcome to the forums.

Pss. I'm sure they're are more quality mods I'm missing this is not intended to insult anyone.

Oh it's a shame, any news on compatible patch?
So it's just increase the dmg that your enemies deal?

Exactly, increase they deal and decrease they take.

I actually think that the enemies can already deal high enough dmg (Like Kavar that destroyied my high con and def character in 2 turns, while i really wanted a long duel, like anakin vs skywalker). Is there a tutorial on what every entry in this .2da file means?

Yeah, you can find a tutorial here even IIRC about most .2da's. You should be able to not increase their damage but pump their health if the only problem is things dying too soon.

TSLRCM and M4-78EP updates have priority, but afterwards, it's topmost on my list
