Are you tired of being outdressed by the very peasants you’re trying to save? Do you like playing a bloodthirsty corpse-looter but don’t want to look like one? Then look no further, for I present to you:
Outdated, and should be unnecessary with the expansion. No plans for updating in the forseeable future. Feel free to mod/merge into your own work.
With this mod you can change the appearance of your gear. All visible equipment can be modified, although medals only have 5 or so different looks. As you can see in the image above, the looks of swords, maces, daggers, and also scepters and axes can be used on each other. You can also use this mod to take a look at the stats of high level items, like an ingame database.
So how does it work? To start, you need to go to the first bridge out of devil’s crossing where you will find a corpse. Loot it, pick up the crate and right click it. What happens next may be a bit odd, but spawning an npc from your inventory was slightly difficult (somehow they don’t like being your pet) and this gave me a laugh. Might be subject to change in the future.
Anyway, there should be a skeleton smith with lots of recipes for items. Even though you can see their stats, they are not real items, you only get an illusion potion that you must apply like an augmentation. When applied, your item will still be the same but look more sexy! Hell yeah!
This is still very much a work in progress but in this first version (v0.5) most items should be there and work. In the future I will try to add some element of progression, probably by unlocking items as you find them.
Please let me know if you find any bugs, missing/double items or anything else. Questions, suggestions or advice are also very welcome![/s]
- Illusion potions sometimes refuse to apply. Legs are especially notorious. Try putting the item in your inventory, or apply a different illusion first (may take a couple of tries).
- Special animations may require a new session to take effect. An example is the glow from the boots in the image.
- Due to the large amount of recipes the crafting menu will be slow. Minimizing open recipe lists will drastically improve performance and scrolling.
- After a while the illusion might wear off. Re-equipping the item will restore it. If you can pinpoint what triggers this, plz let me know.
For players: To play this mod, download the attached zip-file at the bottom of this post or here, and extract the contents to your mod folder, same as any other mod.
For modders: You can download the mod with unpacked archives and source files from the links below. Feel free to include this mod in your own mod and distribute it. You can choose to include only the visual effects by including only the records/items/transmogs folder and tags_transmog.txt. That way, no existing files are altered so it should be compatible with pretty much any mod. However, players will still need to access this mod seperately every now and then, to summon the smith and craft illusion potions.
