So we already have mods like Grey Wardens of Ferelden or the Unofficial Remaster that use model ports from DAI to DAO.

 

And right now the only things missing for a complete DAI experience is the DAI chantry robes!

 

The only mod that tries to achieve this is the Viva la Orlais mod, which has UTC files for npcs but doesn't work properly. all of the outfits are distorts from a distance

(I think the models are missing proper LOD2 files or at least that what I figured after downloading the mod and trying it out)

 

If someone with more knowledge than me can help fix those models (like making LOD2 files for tham? not sure how that works) and utcs- i would be forever grateful!

Is the issue faulty UTC files or missing LODs?

Hi thanks for the reply!  :laugh:
 

i think it's missing LOD files.
 

in the original viva la orlais the chantry files has only "0" versions of mnh and phy, but no 2 and 3, which are the missing LOD files right? (lol my knowledge is very limited on the subject) 

 

i actually tried duplicating the mnhs and phys, adding 2 and 3 at the ends and editing their names in the toolset but i think the problem is in the model itself? maybe what's needed is to reduce the polygons in Eshme's Max script? tried doing it but it's wayyyy beyond my skills lol

So there's actually nothing wrong with the UTC files... the NPCs are equipping the items?

 

If that's the case, then yes, someone would have to create reduced poly LOD2/3 models, and 3D modeling is not in my wheelhouse. Fixing UTC files? That I could do...

yeah the items looks good up close, and get distorted from a distance.
WELL THEN, WHO CAN HELP US? PRETTY PLEASE?
