What's the purpose?

With this mod, Geralt will almost look the same from the beginning to end, not matter the swords, armour, boots, pants or gloves you equip as well as their stats and their icon.
This mod includes the starting equipment (+ worn glove), their upgraded counterpart, and imported equipment from Witcher 1. It contains only the XML files so you are free to mix different appearance or to edit them.
