Is there a way to hide equipped helmets in Sacred 2 ?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to 'hide' the equipped helmet, so that the normal head (hair included) remains visible?

I tried swapping the model data in the itemtype.txt, but (as far as I have understood it) that only allows changing the helmet appearance, not hiding it completely. I would gladly skip the texture-change to invisible textures, if possible.

I am thankful for any hints or other ideas.

Hi Khorath, im not really a modder, BUT...i do love a good investigation to see what ideas are out there in Ancaria for our merry band of adventurers!  :cow:

Have you tried modding the itemtype.txt  file to achieve a effect? As well, try swapping the model data for helmets with a blank or invisible model ( I know you posted you were against this buuuuuut.. this could be the most effective solution, and it may not work consistently for all helmet types :eek:

And what about using helmets that show most of the face when equipped ...could this suit your esthetic ?

What i REALLY think you're looking for, could be a member named Vishanka?

... her models are full face reveal, make up, the works... she has a topic here, in her own mod corner... if you post nicely she may appear and grant you an audience for her secrets

:D

Hi Gogo,

thanks a lot for your suggestions. Sadly I'm a rather inexperienced modder. Swapping one model for another (aesthetically more pleasing) one is easy to do and works great. I'have done that several times. The dryads helmets are giving me a bit of trouble though ... because all of the existing helmets for the dryad-model are covering either the face or the hair. Something I'd like to change. But swapping a helmet from the model of another character to the dryad seems to require some knowledge, I don't have (yet).

I will do as you suggested and try to ask for an audience with Vishanka. I have seen her works... the face-retextures and the grass-recoloring is beautiful... :wub: Maybe I get lucky and she is willing to help me.

I don't think you can hide it if you don't want to edit the textures/surface.txt.

I've done this and changed all full helmets so that they allow for the hair to show
