Cloak Models:
1. Geralt Cloak (Original)
This is the original model that most closely resembles Dirty Black Cloak that is always worn by Geralt in cinematic trailer. Geralt swords & crossbow are more visible on this cloak model. This version also supports Cloak Recoloring. The problem is that the cloak clips through Geralt's shoulders. (I use this one in my game)

2. Geralt Cloak (Alternative Model)
Since there are so many people complaining about the cloak clipping through Geralt's shoulders in the original version, i added alternative Geralt Cloak model. This model doesn't clip through Geralt's shoulders, however the cape's position is more backward therefore Geralt's swords & crossbow are harder to see because they are covered by the it. This version is available only in Dark Black color & doesn't support Cloak Recoloring.

Cloak Recolor:
Don't like the Original Cloak color? This mod have 3 Cloak Recolor that you can downloads !
Brown Cloak
Dark Black Cloak
Light Gray Cloak

Just follow the steps below for "Cloak Recolor" installation:

1. Delete "modGeraltCloak" folder in (...\Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\mods)
2. Download "Cloak Recolor" and put all "mod..........." folder to (...\Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\mods)

- Use Witcher 3 Mod Manager, for easy installation.
- This mod might have conflicts with other mods, so use "Script Merger" to solve them.
- Hood color is red after installing (the problem comes from conflict with other texture mods), try to reinstall the mod or change the load order, giving this mod a priority.
- If having problems after updating to the newest version, toggle the cape and hood off, save and then reload that save game again to make it work properly.

Known Issues:

-The Cape doesn't 100% match the cloak from the trailer.
-The Cape clips through Geralt's shoulders, weapons, boat, and horse. (This issues can't be fix!)
