About this mod

This is a simple replacer for the SteamVR Oculus Touch models which swaps the controller models for hands.

Permissions and credits
===========================================================================================================
DESCRIPTION:


This mod is an Oculus Touch model replacer which enables you to see virtual hands in SkyrimVR in place of the Oculus Touch models provided by SteamVR.

NOTE: This replaces the default Oculus Touch models for ALL SteamVR games so you may want to knock up a quick batch file to replace your models when you play Skyrim and then restore them when your done.

===============================================================================================================
INSTALLATION (OCULUS RIFT):
1. Backup the following folders in your Steam directory or rename them (Very Important):
  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\oculus_cv1_controller_left
  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\oculus_cv1_controller_right
2. Unpack Oculus_Touch_Hands_v1.0.zip
3. Delete the following folders (if you didn't rename them):
  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\oculus_cv1_controller_left
  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\oculus_cv1_controller_right
4. Copy the oculus_cv1_controller_left & oculus_cv1_controller_right folders to:
  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\
5. If you had SteamVR open, close it and then relaunch it.

SKIN TONES (OPTIONAL):
A optional skin tones pack can be downloaded from the downloads section. To install:

1. Unpack 'Idle_Hands_Skin_Tones.zip'

2. Open a skin tone folder, 1 = lightest - 4 = Darkest

3. Copy 'external_controller01_col.png' to both:

  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\oculus_cv1_controller_left
  • \Steam\steamapps\common\SteamVR\resources\rendermodels\oculus_cv1_controller_right
4. If you had SteamVR open, close it and then relaunch it. 

NOTE: You may want to try a few different skin tones in game as when the hands have lighting applied they may appear a different tone than in SteamVR. 

===============================================================================================================
INSTALLATION (WINDOWS MIXED REALITY):
  1. Head to the directory located below.
  2. %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\OpenVR

  3. There will be two folders. Both have a "_1" or a "_2" suffix, they are for the left and right controllers respectively. Drag and drop
  4. the contents of "oculus_cv1_controller_left" and
    "oculus_cv1_controller_right" into the correct folders.

  5. This is where a big issue comes in- every time SteamVR or OpenVR is loaded, the "controller.json" file gets overwritten each time.
  6. However, if it is set to read-only, it will not get overwritten. Delete
    the "controller.json" file and rename the
    "oculus_cv1_controller_left.json" and "oculus_cv1_controller_right.json"
    files to "controller.json."

  7. Set them to read-only by right clicking them, then clicking properties, checking the read-only box, and clicking apply.

  8. Load up SteamVR

Instructions removed due to reports of them not working correctly.

===============================================================================================================

I doubt this will work for Vive users as I think SteamVR uses one model for both controllers.
