About this mod

This mod restores Lara's UNUSED braid and also restores the CANCELLED Aqua tank top outfit. All the assets of this mod I found in the game files. The braid is compatible with all other mods and game outfits.

Permissions and credits
Let's talk about how I found all the assets of this mod. First I decided to check RotTR game files of X360 version and came across a deleted outfit. Its name  - Aqua tank top outfit. I also found some of its textures that are damaged in the PC version. However, there was a big minus - the resolution of Aqua tank top diffuse texture was negligible, only 512*512 pixels. I decided to fix it and increased the texture resolution to 4096*4096 using my photoshop skills. Here's the original texture below, if anyone is interested:

Now about the braid. I found it in the SotTR game files, its name is "lara_hair_braid_rig". I suspect it was only used for young Lara before. Here is a screenshot of that braid in Noeisis:

After finding all these assets, I decided to create a mod for RotTR.

· "Aqua tank top" mod replaces "Desert tank top" outfit.

· The braid replaces standard hair. In other words, for it to appear, you need to disable PureHair.

· This mod works on any graphics settings and on DirectX 12.

· The braid is compatible with any mods and game outfits.

How to install:
This mod is only compatible with the latest version of the game.
Before installing, just in case, make a backup copy of the "bigfile.update3.000.000.tiger" file.

First, extract the contents from the "rar" file to the game folder. Then just drag and drop "MOD Lara's braid" or "MOD Aqua tank top" folder onto "InstallMod.bat" file.
Note: installation may take a long time, don't worry, it's absolutely normal.
Press the "y" key, wait for a while, and when the command line stops, just close it. That's it, mod is installed! Now you can play the game!
To remove mods, just run "InstallMod.bat" by itself.
