Modding the new faction skins

Post by Robins » Sun Dec 03, 2017 6:55 pm

Hello! So the new faction related skins are a really great addition. However, it's annoying for people like myself who prefer using high-poly skin mods but unable to due faction restrictions to use specific skins. So, is there a way to mod the newly added skins? If so, how can we find their .txd and .dff in order to use our own models? Thank you!

It's impossible to find the skin you're looking for through this. Maybe there's a way to specify which is which?

Not sure exactly but I'm confident that you can use a TXD editor to recognize and find the right skin in the cache folder (mentioned above), once you find it, you may be able to mod it by using modloader, placing your modded FD skins in a new folder inside your install directory/modloader and renaming the txd/dff files accordingly with the names in the cache folder. If you replace the files directly in the cache folder they'll be re-downloaded when you log back in-game I'm sure.

You just have to find the .txd and .dff files through txd workshop.

Run the DFF checker. Good luck.

Why can't you just use any other skin if you're going to put a mod on it? :?

Prisons skins would be a must. At least 3-4 skins per race (White, Asian, Black & Hispanic) with default R* tattoo textures to blend it in with the environment.

Cause official factions prohibit the usage of the old skins.

Which skin files are you looking for? I'll have a look for you if you didn't already find them.

Nah, it’s okay, I’ve found them. I’m just explaining to him why he can’t just use other skins.

Bumping, anyone know what this skin is named?
I've looked in the whole folder but I can't find it.

Found a way to see what skin is what, but the .txd and .dff I replaced caused my game to say the skin was bugged, and it re-downloaded the original one. Suggestions?
