About this mod

A simple mod that replaces textures for characters during gameplay with textures from cutscenes.

Permissions and credits
Yakuza games use 2 different models for major characters, one for gameplay, with lower quality textures, and one for cutscenes, with higher quality textures. This mod basically merges cutscenes textures with gameplay models.

In general face textures and tattoos are improved for the major characters.
Textures themselves are 4 times bigger. They're taken straight from the game, so there should be no issues with inconsistent art style of textures, since they were made by the original game devs.

See pictures for comparison.

Download "Packaged" version, extract the file and copy the "data" folder over to game's folder, usually something like "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Yakuza 6 - The Song of Life"

On top of that, you can use Solidical's mod to force cutscene models for Kiryu in gameplay, which is available on Yakuza Modding Community Discord.
