    Default PSO2 Mod Thread

    Disclaimer: This thread is to promote primarily aesthetic modifications. This is NOT about altering the way the game plays functionally.

    This stuff is NOT condoned by SEGA. I would avoid making your character names and player ID's known when posting related pictures on big JP sites. Someone I know got a 24 hour temp ban for an outfit swap. Posting here and Youtube is probably fine with IDs omitted, but this is just an FYI to everyone. I'm not responsible if something does happen for whatever reason.


    Take care to hide your ID if you post media publicly. Sega is NOT actively hunting people. If you keep your ID out of mod related media, you should be fine.
    Spoiler!


    Welcome to the PSO2 Mod thread! The primary focus of this thread will be to create a place to store mods people have made for this game and give others ready access to them. For more swift questions and answers, please refer to the discord server: https://discord.gg/Kds4V4Z
    I don't actively watch PSOW these days, but if I see something there I'll probably respond within a day at least.

    **Getting Started**
    You can now use the mod loader in this video which allows more things and the ability to toggle mods on and off while the game is on!


    Or you can use the old method if you prefer:
    Spoiler!


    **Mod files**
    Our main mod site will be here: https://gamebanana.com/games/6674
    As of this writing, many things are being transitioned over still, but this will be the main hub for future mod postings

    This site has some more mods, but is being phased out: http://pso2mod.com/
    Below, you can find a number of the earlier mods that were made.
    Spoiler!



    Do let me know if any file links die please.

    **FAQ**

    Q. Is this compatible with the English patch?
    A. Yes! If something overwrites some text, let me know, but test it with the English patch alone to make sure that it's not just the patch missing some text to start with.

    Q. Will these work with EP4's new graphics setting?
    A. I honestly don't know. At the very least, some mods may have to be upgraded to take advantage of it. I really have no idea as of right now though.
    Everything works more or less with ep4 overall. Of course, lighting changes can affect some things a bit.

    Q. Are these compatible with other regions of PSO2?
    A. These mods are for JP PSO2 for now, but if there's enough interest than I could add a section for SEA PSO2 mods and what not.

    Q. Will these permanently alter my game?
    A. The game checks with the official launcher for file irregularities at launch. This is why we need to launch the game without it. Thankfully, this also means that you should be safe from having to reinstall the game entirely if you ever do something dumb.

    Q. Will I get in trouble for using this?
    A. It's pretty rare that you would, but you shouldn't be found out just for playing with modified files. As long as you don't show off your names or player id when sharing screenshots or vids, you're pretty much guaranteed to be fine. Even then, on most English sites it's probably okay anyways.

    Q. These don't work for my game D:
    A. Be sure you've downloaded the checksum file provided above and applied it. The game will refuse to load mods without it. In addition, the game uses some files redundantly and so some area mods may not apply in all places the game can use them. This can potentially be corrected, but be aware of this for cutscenes and the like.

    Q. Can I make my own mods?
    A. Yes! And I've made a guide here:
    http://www.pso-world.com/forums/showthread.php?t=232836


    Use this guide and refer to the old one only if you like details.:
    http://www.pso-world.com/forums/show...g-Tutorial-2-0
    The old guide is mostly correct with minor inaccuracies I don't really want to go and fix right now.
    I'm willing to answer any questions, but I'll get back to you fastest in the mod discord: https://discord.gg/Kds4V4Z

    Q. Is there a list of what's what?
    A. We're working on one! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing You can find it here and comment if you have something to add. If you want to mess with it directly, please message Arredoval about that. Note that some things, like hair, need to be repacked to be swapped properly. Weapons and skyboxes seem to swap among each other very nicely though. There's also this list of filenames from the contents of every ICE archive up to the 4/27/16 patch for those who might find it useful: http://www.mediafire.com/download/48...7.16_patch.zip

    Q. Can I make and submit a music mod?
    A. Yes, but it's not a topic I've looked into and so I can't offer any advice for getting started with them to begin with. However as I recall, you do not need .ICE file tools to deal with these. There is a guide to working with them floating around somewhere if I recall correctly though.

    Q. I want to make a lewd dakimakura pillow camo! Can I submit that here? ;3
    A. ...PM me and I can see about putting explicit mods in another section of the file storage. Due to PSOW rulings, they will not be directly linked here.

    Q. X mod(s) suck!
    A. People make these in their spare time. Some, including me, *may* feel like improving them to fix issues and such at a point, if possible, but other things go on in our lives.

    Q. WOW UR RUINING TEH GAME AND NOT PLAYING IT HOW IT'S INTENDED
    A. This is not a question. Regardless, these only affect the people using them and do not alter gameplay. You're perfectly welcome to go about your day playing the way you like :^)

    Are we even allowed to post mod stuff on these forums? The only mods I want are higher res textures and a mod to remove the chat bubble sound though. :/

    We already have the Arks Mods Tool and Tweaker thread up for awhile.

    Fair enough.

    But seriously, if someone can get rid of that annoying chat sound I would love it. I'd do it myself but I don't have any of the tools required.

    No one will do it for you, but you can always ask for help.
    Since tools will become available as op said, it will be easy to track and modify any file. For the easiest modding ( which is texture edit) you can use the simplest tool like paint.net just make sure to maintain original format.
    You also want to download Noesis and use the plug in to view specific models. Be warned that some models will not open.

    An example, negro torimu.

    I already said I would have no problem doing it myself with the right tools, but I find it kinda hard to believe NO ONE would make a simple mod like that from a request unless the original sound file is impossible to find or something.

    I know how to edit files, but I don't have the tools to unpack and repack them. But if the OP is going to make a guide/make stuff available I can wait.

    Just please continue to not link the nude mod, and I think we'd be alright. As these are aesthetics vs actual game changing.

    Sounds good. As for nude mod and the like, I'll direct any such requests to PM/offsite discussion. No reason to link it here.

    @Kondibon
    It's a little more difficult than you might think to replace that sound file since trial and error is about the only way to test it. And there's no guarantee that the file containing it can be repacked since the program I fails on certain files.

    As for the guide, I'll give writing that up a go in the near future. I might modify the actual program a little so that it properly supports English windows locale before hand though. Currently, you need a JP windows locale and it's not the funnest thing to boot up a VM every time to change things. I'm somewhat debating releasing public links until after the Ep4 graphical update is live only because that would be their biggest time to change the formats, but we'll see how that goes. That aside, I don't think you'd want to be booting VMware or something like what I'm doing to compile these at the moment.

    Them ult areas look reeeeal nice.

    Always sorta kinda been interested in a HD mod - maybe if nobody's already got one going, when the guides are released we could make something of a community project out of it. It'd be a very large job, after all.
