Swaping weapons parts(make unique weapons looks):


Hello,
So you make a build but it looks horrible? or you don't like the look of your weapon? or you want that male armor so badly on your female character? Install a custom mod on any armor you want? fear no more because now you can change the apparence of armors and weapons in the game use uplayable armors and much more.

Few notes:
This is a tool that will make it easier for you to model swap armors & weapon along with using unplayable armors.
It doesn't mess with anything else except copy and move the origianl files outside the chunk#.bin, so your game files and save should be safe.
The original game files are still intouched inside the chunk#.bin so you can revert changes without any change just by clicking delete all transmog in armors and weapons interface.
Only and only you can see the apparence you made from swaping models it mean that other players will see the original apparence that you are wearing.
You will also see peoples with the swaped parts if they wear or use them.
You don't need to run the tool each time you play the game and no need to save your game or worry about save corruption or game not launching.

In order for this tool to work you will need the extracted armors & weapons game files and to get them there is two ways:
1.Head to optional files and download Extracted Chunk armors & weapons this is the easiest way.
Due to some copyright infringement I can no longer provide you with the exracted weapons and armors folders on the nexus page, you will need to extract them yourself from your game, I made a video tutorial on how to do this using the second way bellow.
2.Head to this mod page download the tool and extract the chunk files follow the video tutorial for guidance.

Issues:
Sometimes armor recolor in the game doesn't work as intended.
Greatsword 12 also doesn't work.
Some armors and weapons are missing because they don't have dedicated files and are generated in the game.
If the weapon you are trying to change doesn't have a part then you can't give it a part.
If you switch your switchaxe skin with something like say a longsword and use the elemental discharge which would mount the monster, it instantly freezes and then crashes the game.


About custom armor mods:
This only work with new armors or unplayable armors it doesn't work with mods that do texture replacement(see bellow for textures replacement mods).
Downloaded mods need to be placed in the mods folder near the application *.exe(see the corresponding video for guide).
Each mod need to be placed in 1 folder and having the desired name.
You can make screenshot of each part of the armor and put them inside the downloaded mod folder to be able to preview the armor pieces in the tool.
The pictures need to be PNG format and named as following :
preview.png (for full armor preview)
helm.png
body.png
wst.png (waist)
leg.png
arm.png

Texture replacer mods:
Texture replacer mods should not be installed as custom armor mods, you will need to install them in the game folder.
I take an example this mod here is texture replacement it has only *.tex files and this mod is not texture replacement it has it own mod3 file.
In order to use the texture replacer mods with the tool you will need to put the files in the game directory not in the out folder and not in the mods folder.
Then with the tool all the armors that you will be replacing will have the texture applied to them because the mod3 files are coded to look for texture in the original folder.
For exemple if you using the texture replacer mod I mentioned the Vaal'hazak leggings, all the armor you are going to give them the vaal'hazak leggings skin will have that texture applied to them.
This will work for weapons retexture mods too.

Issues:
Sometimes armor recolor in the game doesn't work as intended.
Greatsword 12 also doesn't work.
Some armors and weapons are missing because they don't have dedicated files and are generated in the game.
If the weapon you are trying to change doesn't have a part then you can't give it a part.
If you switch your switchaxe skin with something like say a longsword and use the elemental discharge which would mount the monster, it instantly freezes and then crashes the game.

About the missing armors:
Some Alpha and Beta high rank armors are missing from the list it's because they don't have unique models they are just retextured models, but all theses armors have the low rank version and it looks the same as high rank Alpha or Beta with some difference in colors.

There is nothing I can do to fix this for now because it will require editing the armors files which is not my focus right now.

If you want to raplace the skin of an Alpha or Beta armor part and it doesn't have the Alpha or Beta version on the targeted list, just use the normal low rank version for exemple:

My character wear Odogaron Alpha helmet I want to replace it with Nergigante Beta helmet skin, in targeted armor select Odogaron, the skin will be applied to both Odogaron Low Rank and Odogaron Alpha armor.

The same apply for the armors that doesn't have Alpha and Beta for exemple replacing Jagras skin will replace all the Low rank and High rank Jagras armors.

How does it work and difference between other transmog tools:
All you can do with this tool you can do it by yourself without the tool because this tool only do model swaping as explained:
1.Take the file that have the skin you want.
2.Rename the file to the skin you want.
3.Put the file in the correct NativePC path.
4.Done.
I have put a list of all armors with their ID in articles so you can easily know which file is what armor if you don't want to use this tool, or want to mod an armor.

The other transmog tools on the nexus edit game memory and your save, there is possibilities of getting your save corrupted or getting flagged for using third party tools since MHW have an anticheat software running with the game, it will detect violation to the MHW memory space or even get detected as a trainer or cheating since it edit memory unless the anti cheat is bypassed.
Also since other peoples can see your skin (layered set) you are giving away information about in-existent layered armor set over the network, resulting in capcom already have a proof that you used third party software if they keep track of some logs containing layered armor you are using and there is high chance they do keep logs.
World Of Transmog only swap files, it doesn't mess with memory editing, it doesn't mess with your save, only you can see the change it's client side capcom don't have logs about you using custom layered sets, but still I will not guarantee you won't get banned or it's 100% safe swapping files by using this tool or any other mod on the nexus USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Translating help:
In order to translate the tool you will need Qt Linguist here, inside languages folder you find the files needed for translation.
Don't translate all the gear parts, translate only the main armor name I will auto edit the rest of the armors parts once you provide me with the translated files.
If the language isn't in the menu then translate the english or any file you want and I will add it once it's complete.
