    Default PSO2 Modding Tutorial 2.0

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

    So clearly the last post like this was rather long and honestly we didn't really understand as much on this side of the community at the time. In fact there wasn't really a "we" at the time. I won't be covering searching for files here since we have a decent listing now so look at the last thread for that: http://www.pso-world.com/forums/show...dding-Tutorial

    If you want more direct help or to just generally chat about this stuff, you're welcome to join our public modding discord here: https://discord.gg/Kds4V4Z

    We now have a mod loader by the way with basic mods to enable and disable mods while the game runs! Check it out here!


    A basic video showing weapon modding can be found here:


    **Tools**

    *The hacked checksum: http://www.mediafire.com/download/7j...7abd1b61fb47cd
    Necessary to load mods. You can thank the English patch team for this one. Unlike nearly everything else in the game, this must be replaced while the game is not running. Yes, most files can be hotswapped in PSO2 safely.

    *PSO2 JP Current File Directory: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...IZjBGjTGEZSET4
    This isn't comprehensive, but it's a list of a lot of what my group has looked through. It should be a big help if you want to mess with things.

    *ICE Expansion Tool (unpacks and repacks PSO2 ICE archives): http://www.mediafire.com/file/ijuabz...r_ice_rev2.rar
    Unpacks and repacks files.

    **Explanation**

    So here's the basic idea. PSO2 uses ICE archive files for storing things. To a layman, they're basically PSO2 zips. PSO2 uses these for basically everything that's not a sound or video file in its win32 folder. Our unpacker and repacker for ICE files is somewhat flawed, but it *can* repack everything I've come across, with some toying on a few offenders. I'll highlight some of these issues later.

    **Basics**

    **Model Troubleshooting**

    **Miscellaneous Editing Notes**

    **File Extensions**

    I may eventually write more about importing models with bones like costumes, but for now this should help I hope.

    Feel free to post or PM for help if needed and I'll respond when I'm available.

    Double posting just to reserve some space and note that I added a link to a PSO2-Modding Discord chat, for those interested. A link can also be found here:

    Hmm I don't know if this is the right place to ask but how do you make a part of the costume translucent?

    Added a new version of the repacker to the post. This one *should* support the files from the SEA and Taiwanese PSO2 clients. http://www.mediafire.com/file/8km5pi...ce_28_7_17.zip

    Very late and I'm sure you got this answered elsewhere by now, but the modding discord is the best place to ask things. As for doing that though, it needs to be a costume that supports it, but you simply edit the transparency for the _d file. If it DOESN'T support it, nifl tool can change it to do that though I offer no guide on that at the moment.

    Is there a way to mod out the visibility of Aerial Mines?

    Is it possible to tweak a weapon/camo to make its colors change with your costume, like for example the Blue Heart sword/DS camo?

    I really like the Lux Frieden camo, but I'd like it much more if I could make it match my costumes.
