If your saying you wish to take atris' mdl and mdx files and remake them into a new character right?

You'd have to do the editing in heads, portraits, appearances.2da's, then you'll need (or at least I always do) to use a HEX editing program like HEXworkshop to replace atris' entries contained within her model to the new name you will be using. Then save the file. rename both the mdl and mdx to the new character's name and that should work.

I'd highly recommend using Stoffe~mkb~'s TSLpatcher to make an installer for it as it will eliminate conflicts in the .2da files themselves.

Hope that lil' bit of info was what you were needin' :thumbsup:

Ooh also make sure you rename the textures too. ;) If it was originally called atris_body.tga and is specific to her it will replace both the new character and atris' as well.

You'll need to find the atris_body.tga or whatever it's called in it's mdl with a hex editor and change it to the new name.

Try to keep the character length to the exact same number. Like this:


that way you won't override sections of hex code that's meant for other things. ;)

and the atris_body was of course an example. I can't recall off the top of my head what her real textures are called.
