May I make some simple mod requests here?

Recommended Posts

I've spent all day searching for mods, and trying to figure out the modding tools but making no headway, and I'm about at my wit's end. I figure somebody more experienced with this sort of thing could probably make the things I want in a fraction of the time it would take for me to try to make them myself. The things I want don't sound terribly complex on paper, so hopefully they won't be complex in practice either. I would greatly appreciate if anybody could help! (I would also like it if any mods you provide me have all of the necessary files. I learned from my digging around that some mods dodn't have assist data, it seems.)


First off, if possible, I would like if somebody could provide me with all of the ingame costumes for some characters in the form of DLC. I would like to use the DLC Toolkit (which is the one thing I did sort of figure out how to use, kind of) to rearrange the order of these costumes so that I can play with them in story mode and fight against computer controlled enemies using my preferred costumes. The characters I want the costumes of are WoL, Firion, Onion Knight, CoD, Cecil, Kain, Bartz, Gilgamesh, Terra, Sephiroth, Tidus, and Jecht.

I would also appreciate it if somebody could provide me with a spreadsheet of the official DLC costumes and music. For some reason, I can't seem to get the toolkit to generate one. I might need it so that I can know which DLC slots are used by the official DLC, so that I don't make anything overlap by accident.


With that out of the way, on to the actual mods I would like to have.


Cecil's Alt 2 outfit with him using a sword in both regular form and EX Mode.

Cecil's DLC 1 outfit with him using a sword in both regular form and EX Mode.

Kain's Alt 1 outfit with the EX Mode outfit of his Normal costume.

Gilgamesh's Alt 2 outfit with the EX Mode outfit of his Normal costume.

Gabranth's Normal outfit with him wearing his helmet in both regular form and EX Mode.

Cecil's DLC 1 outfit with the hair of his Alt 2 outfit. (Swapping the heads might be all you need to do?)

Terra's Alt 2 outfit with green hair, and the EX Mode of her Normal outfit.

agl89's "Classic Terra" mod with the EX Mode of Terra's Normal outfit.

The mod for Bartz that turns him into Serge from Chrono Cross, with the assist files it appears to be missing. I've uploaded it here for ease of access:


EDIT: I would also like Sephiroth's Normal outfit with that weird pink and yellow thing under his coat removed, and the little line of beads hanging from his right bracelet removed.

EDIT 2: I would also like Cloud's Normal outfit, but with his clothes made more purple, to closer resemble what he looked like in FF7.


Moving away from costumes, I would like to replace a song in the game. I would like to replace Duodecim's character select theme "Heroes", with the original Dissidia's character select theme "Battle Preparations". I always thought it was a far more hype-inducing song. I don't know how difficult it is to outright replace songs in the game rather than just add more, but if it's not difficult, I may have more songs I would like replaced. But this is all for now.


Lastly, I don't know if something like this would be remotely possible or not, but would it be possible to make the cursor on the character select screen start on Warrior of Light instead of Lightning?


Thank you for reading, and I would greatly, hugely appreciate it if you can help me with these!

Sorry buddy, there's no one here who would even care about your requests and problems, let alone try to help you. If you're lucky someone will pop up and spout either nonsense or how you should do it all yourself without expecting any shred of decency or courtesy from the "experts" here. I mean, your post is standing proof of that. There's a 100% guarantee they've seen it, but wouldn't give half a shit about even dropping a reply to state a negative. But you know what's funny? Right now, if you spam some thread or anywhere else for that matter of fact, if you do something that doesn't sit well with their ethics, you can be damn sure that those very same self proclaimed "pros" would just pop up within half a day and just tell you off. That's fact.

As for the custom model imports, I don't do modding, just swapping pre-existing model imports in and out. So far in, I haven't come across the models you've mentioned/asked for, but I'll let you know if I find 'em. 

As for the character select screen, no sirree, there's no way to do that. At least, I wouldn't think so. Unless you could somehow alter the lines of codes themselves to change the selection screen accordingly.

While I do wish that guides had been properly archived from the old site (both gameplay and modding), that doesn't mean we have to trample on everyone that comes here.

Fun fact: complaining about modders (understandably, in my opinion) want to focus on their own thing doesn't really help the situation. I think people going "community is bad" does more harm than modders going "Okay, well I'm going to finish up my current thing first, then we'll see what happens." Sure it'd be better if there was a thread I could pin that just shows all the essential knowledge, I'm not going to deny that, but shooing away people isn't helping.

      I want to make my own music mod, so I tried using the software known as Goldwave
      Atrac3 codec to make a wav with Atrac3 attributes file
      GWAT3 to change the extension into .at3 in order to use it for making my own music mod
      using this method
      or using UMDGen
      but when I try save the mp3 file in the .wav format, I don't see the Atrac3 attributes, I installed the atrac3 driver, restarted my computer then installed GoldWave, it still didn't work, I then tried it the other way around and it still didn't show. What should I do to solve this problem?

      This has been long overdue but I feel it's better late than never

      I'm just copy pasting what I told another member on how to mod,  So some stuff may not match

      Things you need before starting
      - Noesis
      - Milkshape 3d (Preferably version 1.8.5)
      - GMOTool
      - PNG2GIM
      - Notepad++
      - The character GMOs
      Getting started

      Use Noesis to export the base character .gmo into .smd
      for example, if you're gonna use Lightning as a base, export her t-posed .gmo.

      Import the base model and the custom model in Milkshape.
      after importing the t-posed model, import the custom model you are gonna rig on. I'll be using Thanos and Exdeath as an example

      After that, go to tool > scale all (by %10000)

      Then delete the original model so that the custom model will be left

      Now, if you had any experience with rescaling, try to fit the model into the skeleton by rotating the vertices of his limbs and such
      And then you may proceed to rig the model.
      I lost the file for Thanos so I'm gonna use Nero instead for the rest of the tutorial

      Anyway, to rig, you just need to select the vertices of the bone you want to rig on
      Like for example, select all the vertices of the head and then assign it to the head bone

      After rigging, you need to resize it back to the original size,

      You can test the model's rigging by importing the animations into it,
      preferably .psa if you're using Milkshape

      It takes a long while to load

      click the anim button at the bottom right to view the animation

      When you're satisfied with the result, export the model to .smd
      the uvs will be flipped like this 

      Now export it again to .fbx while flip uvs is checked


      MDS Editing

      The final part of the tutorial is the .mds editing

      First you need to convert the .fbx to .mds using fbxconv

      Then the base .gmo to .mds using gmoconv

      Open both .mds in notepad++

      In your custom character's .mds, replace all of the "rootnode" with "root" and "png" with "gim"

      Go to your base character's .mds and go to model-0

      Below that, look for this bone (differs per character)

      then delete the blendoffset, blendbones, and drawpart, leaving behind only the ParentBone and Translate

      Do the same with the "wepx" bones (i.e. wep0, wep1, etc.) and the bones in model _000A

      Look for the trans_include bone inside model-0 and copy everything above it

      Then paste it over the trans_include bone inside your custom character's .mds

      Now go to the material section of your custom .mds and remove this bit from every material

      Now dont forget to convert your png textures to gim using png2gim
      you can only have 1 png at a time inside the folder or it wont convert properly

      Rename the new .gim to be the same as your png file

      After moving the .gims inside your GMOtool folder, use gmotool - to gmo 

      -s is a parameter to change the size of your model, (-s 0.8 means that the model size will be reduced by 80% and so on)

      Now you can try checking the .gmo in Noesis to see if the animations are properly working

      Please note your gmo size must not exceed 2.4mb
