Original Duncan Valpole and
British Royal Navy officer outfits for Edward



Doreth (Daniel Wolf)


1.0 readme:

Disclaimer: I know someone already made a Duncan Valpole outfit on another site, but since I extracted the original texture myself, I can only credit the person who made me aware of RESOREP. Kudos forever... I would like to thank nfcintra as I first started to experiment with RESOREP after downloading some of his work, and understanding how those mods operate.
The brown hair, eyes, and beard mod visible on these pictures are available on this site as well. This mod only includes the clothes.

This mod replaces the Politican's outfit (you can buy that one for 12000 since the start) with either the original Duncan Valpole outfit, or with versions of something I tried to make out of it to resemble an actual British Royal Navy officer (lieutenant to be more precise) outfit. The navy ones have matching blue hoods aswell.
There are:
-Duncan Valpole outfit with original white belts.
-Duncan Valpole outfit new brown belt
-Royal Navy lieutenant with red sash (blue and red reminds me of later french colors....)
-Royal Navy lieutenant with bright blue sash
-Royal Navy lieutenant with blue sash.

if you would prefer the white belt for any Royal Navy outfits, just simply do not copy to your mod folder, so the game uses the stock white belt...

A bit of history lesson: while Redcoats stationed on land, or redcoats carried on British royal navy ships are accurate, British ships should contain BLUE uniform navy officers and sailors as well. ESPECIALLY those who are situated by or near the wheel of the vessels- as only the army, and the marines wore red- Royal navy officers were wearing blue. (mostly the common navy sailors as well, though they had no official uniform by that time)

Current issues:
Stock DXt1 .dds files for politican's outfit, original Duncan valpole outfit and similars, has it's transparency/alpha broken BY STOCK. (You can check this if you examine the red sash on Valpole, it has black lines where we should see trough the sash. The same when you wear it...) So making other parts of this outfit transparent for further modding is not possible until someone gives me an idea how to fix an -originally broken- alpha channel....
Otehrwise, it looks cool.


In the zip file I included all useful combinations of the files (folder name
tells you which one is which) decide which one you like, and copy all .dds files from THAT folder
to your RESOREP modded_textures_folder. (just the dds files themselves, not any folder...) If you do not have Resorep, please continue reading...

Resorep installation:

Others written guides before me, but I will do one aswell :

First you need Resorep.
download it from

1.: Now the recommended installation method for this is simply use it as
they tell you... But you need a java jre or java JDK installed for that:

For mod users:

Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (if you do not have already)
Download and install Windows x64 (!) version of Java Runtime
Environment from
Launch resorep.jar - double click it in Windows Explorer.
Make sure that your Windows user has write rights for game folder!
Click the "Add application" button in the "Applications to hook" section.
Choose the game executable. Not the game launcher but game itself.
[Optional] Change "Modded textures folder" path if you wish.
You may close the resorep.jar application now.
Find and download some mods for your game.
Unpack and copy modded textures into folder specified by "Modded_textures_folder" path.
Launch the game.

2.: A somewhat tricky secondary method to install Resorep, but you do not need java installed for this:

YOUR OWN Black Flag install path = change this part to your Black Flag install path- for example, mine is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\games\Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag
but most probable yours different!

Go to the folder:C:\Windows\System32\

Copy the fie"d3d11.dll" (System32\) paste it on you Black Flag main folder where .exe is and rename to "ori_d3d11.dll"

copy "dx11proxy64.dll" from the folder where you installed RESOREP and paste it inBlack Flag rootfolder with the bf exe, then rename "dx11proxy64.dll" to:

- Create a TXT file named: "dllsettings.txt" file in the main game folder as well.

- Put the following text inside the TXT file:

modded_textures_folder=YOUR OWN Black Flag install path\Modded
dll_log_file=YOUR OWN Black Flag install path\resorepDll.log
original_textures_folder=YOUR OWN Black Flag install path\ORIGINAL

Save and close dllsettings.txt file.
Change the dllsettings.txt file extension to dllsettings.ini
Start the game.
