I wanted to see if anyone could either:

 

A. Remove the gender restriction from the female-only items so males can also wear them. (most preferred)

 

or

 

B. Replace the texture/bump-map for the male bottom bandages for those of the Silk Lingerie. AND replace the Mummer's Wear texture and bump-map for those of the Flame Skirt.

 

I have a male character that I'd like to equip the Silk Lingerie to. I also think the female only rules seem a bit dumb. I'd love to be able to equip the Silk Lingerie and the Flame Skirt to my male character.

 

Thank you so much to anyone who can help here.

-Zac

A.) might not be possible as it could crash the game if I understand it right, but even if it is possible and involves no crashing, I think we also have to do B.) and additionally edit meshes as well for the female only clothing to fit well on male bodies. I only do retextures (for now) so might very well be wrong though and hope I am really. Anyway, I'll try and look into B.) and just edit the textures and see if it works at all this way.

 

UPDATE: Whelp, I've found the textures for the bandages and "merged" it with the texture of the Silk Lingerie. Looks promising but sadly I cannot test it in-game as my whole party consists of females... Thus I need you or someone with some spare time to test it for me.

 

So, attached is a file that must be merged with game_main.arc (to avoid conflicts with other mods, if any, that change this same file), found in: ...\Steam\steamapps\common\nativePC\rom\, which must be extracted first using the Arc Extractor and Repacker and Image Viewer tool.

The attached file goes here: \model\pl\m\m_leg_i\m_leg_i000\, within that extracted game_main.arc file. Also make backup of the original game_main.arc in case something went wrong.

I've done some digging, and here's what I've found:

 

The gender restriction isn't some arbitrary value slapped on to the model data, as I had originally thought - rather, the model data doesn't exist for the other gender e.g. the arc file for silk lingerie is f_w_leg1402.arc, but there is no m_w_leg1402.arc, which would be the male equivalent. For other items like Lady's Trek Wear there is an arc file for males with a matching ID but is used for something else entirely. To remove the restriction we'd have to put new model data in the files and tell the programming when to use it without breaking everything, which I think is beyond what can be done right now.

 

I tried swapping the male underwear with silk lingerie and got this:

Spoiler

So yeah it looks like we'd need to edit the mesh to fit better, I'm guessing something similar will happen for your other request too.

 

EDIT: AllenWalker, I'm guessing that file is meant to replace m_leg_i000_NUKI.tex but it's a different file extension? I renamed to .tex and added it, but it doesn't seem to have changed anything. EDIT UPDATE: I managed to get it working, the file needed to be merged with m_i_body0000.arc in rom/eq/i_body instead. It resulted in this:

@AllenWalkerHU, it looks like it's working-ish (by Proto325's update). I think we just need to edit the texture so the strings on the side line up.

'Tis more or less the same as I thought about option A) then. Thanks for the info.

 

Also thanks for taking the time and tested out my retexture. It's curious though, I didn't even touch that .arc file you mentioned. Oh well, at least it works (ish), was expecting more serious issues though... :laugh:

 

Anyway, made some more edits and I think I got the alignment right this time. I hope.

I've installed and tried this out! It worked pretty well :D Thank you!

 

Any chance we could try out this same texture replacement on the mummer's wear with the texture from the flame skirt?

It's strange, game_main and m_i_body0000 both seem to contain the same models and textures for male underwear but as far as I can tell the set in game_main isn't used anywhere.
 
I had a go at model swapping the flame skirt and mummers wear and it worked a lot better than I expected:

Spoiler

the only problem is the top of the mummer's wear is separate from the skirt part and I don't really know how to get rid of it., but here it is anyway: https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing - that file goes in (from the game folder) NativePC/rom/eq/a_body/m - don't forget to make a backup!

Could you upload the .arc file for the bandages -> silk lingerie replacer? The ARC tool is... baffling...
