Project 3 To 1
this mod is a weapon replacer mod in which you can replace an existing weapon to a new look of dark souls 3 featured weapons.
the list of weapon that is available are:

replace model
-Astora Greatsword
-Demon's Greataxe
-DragonSlayer Greataxe
-Farron Greatsword
-Fume Ultragreatsword
-Yhorm's Greatmachete

replace the texture(copy to dsfix tex_override folder)
-Dragonslayer Spear
-Ricards Rapier
-Astora Straight Sword
-Black Knight Sword
-Black Knight Greatsword

warning the DSMODT will replace the ingame file permanently, but you can restore your dark souls dvdbnd file again.
apperently an error could occur that some particles (including fog gate and enmy particles) on certain area will not appear in game or even have sound. 
the known place where this error occurs are: Undead asylum(also with stray demons fire), Valley of Drakes(no lightning on Drakes), New londo, Dukes Archive(also with the Channeler Soul Spear with no Sound), Crytal Cave(this is where it hurts. the prism stone will not appear, and so you cannot see the invisible bridge), Kiln of the First flame(this one is good for framerate whilst gwyn doesnt have fire sword. also including the brilliant light before soul vessel)

How to Install(model)
-first, you need to have a DSModt v0.4 or newer by Nyxojaele and run it, then wait till its workspace generated
-at the DSMODT you will find a list containing map change the selection to Weapons
-Pick the weapon you need to replace with. for better fixes read "Weapon Replacement"
-then click the Pencil icon to edit the name.
-pick the target of weapon that will be replaced(DO THIS ONLY IF YOU PICK THE FIRST DIFFERENT WEAPON AND THEN REPLACE IT TO THE NEXT TARGET, read "Weapon Replacement")
-Drag the model file(.dae) to DSMODT. pick a material, either a m4_stone(DSB) or m7_metal(DSB) or m7_metal(dsb)(edge)
-Drag the Texture. The name format of the Texture will be (Name)_(Type).png, example: FUG_D. Drag the (_D) to the Main box, Drag the (_N) to the Bump Box, Drag the (_S) to the Specular Box.
-Apply Change. and then Save to dark souls

this mod will allow you to pick whatever weapon you want to add in or not therefor if you didnot want to use the suggested weapon in the "Weapon Replacement", the icons of the weapon will be different
so in order to get a correct icon, edit the psd file in the icon folder.
there will also be pictures of the weapon, edit the pictures and place it in the psd file to the correct weapon that you want to replace with.
but if you're going to use the suggested weapon to be replaced then just copy '17c838c0.png' and '60a2c243.png' into the dsfix tex_override folder

How to Uninstall
-Click on 'Restore Dark Souls' in DSMODT 
-or copy the backup of dvdbnd file if you have any
Weapon Replacement
-For Astora Greatsword it is recommended to replace the claymore
-For Demon's Greataxe it is recommended to pick a first different weapon such as the golem axe and then replace it with the Demon's Greataxe(existing in  game weapon not the mod)
-For Dragonslayer Greataxe it is recommended to pick the first weapon Great Club and then Replace it with the Dragon King GreatAxe

Please Read
I made this mod to be shared for free use you can edit them all you want but please do not claim this as your own and do not use it for commercials usage. please give credits

i made the model my self but ripped the textures from dark souls 3 original asset.
some bug may occur with a dodgy hitbox and sometimes hitting some wall even though theres non. to avoid that, watch RavagerChris37 video about how to fix hitboxes in DSMODT
the weapon buff now work but will look weird on some weapon. i think the best fitting would be the astora greatsword
the weapon model will not increase or decrease hitbox, however after a lot of testing i find that doing the rolling attack on the FUG(thrusting for the range) i can hit an enemy using the weapons tip, even though we do know that the FUG is almost twice longer than the Dragon Greatsword. I might check more of this later.

put on this mod and enjoy
