Thread: Dragon color modding made easy :)

  1. #1

    Default Dragon color modding made easy :)

    So I've made three packs of dragon mods for those uncomfortable with going through the files themselves and going through the process of renaming files and IDing which file is which in game.

    Just unzip the mod of your choice in the resources_override folder and launch the character creator to play with the new colors. The two dragon color mods cannot be used in conjunction with each other, but you can use either one in combination with the stripe mod safely. Please uninstall one before using the other. They will be in a folder by themselves so to uninstall, simply delete the DragonColorVerXX folder that is within your override folder.

    Keep in mind that only you will be able to see these colors! Everyone else sees the normal colors, so I suggest when actually making a character or during normal gameplay that you remove the mod. Otherwise you risk making a green dragon with red stripes when you meant to make a copper dragon with black stripes.

    The first one I tried to match close to the already in game dragon colors:
    The black is more of a black
    There are metallic versions of purple and blue
    A sky blue
    A nicer pink
    Silver instead of white
    A copper instead of the other yellow

    The second is a natural pack which includes much more browns, golds and two blues I found interesting but couldn't fit it in the other mod.

    The third file is a stripe mod. It changes the purple and teal stripes to "white" and umm... orange? I forget the other. these pictures do the mod no sense of justice, but are a decent preview of the differences.



    The first image is what an unmodded game head looks like. The second is the color mod and the last image is the natural colored mod.

    Here are the downloads. Enjoy

    Do these mods also work for dragons that are already created?

    Of course, but they mod all dragons with the color, not just your own.

    For kicks, I logged in my own characters with the mod on.I love Ricar's darker color and my girls got the shiny bodies. Durke just turned a nice orange Didn't include Keserith because aside from the stupid green spots that I can't get rid of, he didn't seem to change.

    Using the stripe mod, Shian's spots turn orange so you do get weird results with the dragons that have a combination that is just so.

    It might be little of-topic but I see you use the white colored horn and teeth mod, but that mod (atleast the one solitaire posted yesterday) doesn't seem to work for me. No one on that topic told me how, so how did you get it to work?

    Awesome mod, Shian ^^

    Curious though: Once you have it on and stuff...is there even a way to take it off? o_o;

    edit: nevermind, reread your post xD

    edit 2: I can't get the colorful mod to move it's butt outta the .rar folder. So I can't get it to work D8

    ooh I love the metal blue and purple..very nice. And that metally/darker red would prolly look nice on me too.

    I prolly won't mess with it cuz I don't care to see things "not as they are" to other people but awesome for you to share!

    You don't have to. It's suggested. So you can see what a silver dragon looks like even though everyone else sees a green dragon. It gives the ablility to play with colors that we as players don't get.

    The scale mood is cool and awesome, but not soo cool when You look at what it did to A poor Alph dragon - XD - Quiet funny though, to my opinion.

    <a href="http://imgur.com/b57nc"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/b57nc.jpg" title="Hosted by imgur.com" alt="" /></a>

    - I wonder if that picture would work, if not then I'll put it up in my album. -

    * laughs * I can't even stop laughing, with what Alphi looks like with the mood.

    Hmm not sure if it's the natural one or the other, but I've completely changed colour.
    Rawr!???
