    Moved from the AA2 pre-release thread. I was messing with the game files to see how easy it would be to add additional slots for hair customization. We have A LOT of space available for additional hair and mods.

    As seen in AA! The elf ears have been ported over to AA2. Simply drag and drop the two pp files into your data folder. I recommend you backup the originals beforehand.
    The elf ears replace the Thin and thick rimmed glasses in the maker. You'll have to fiddle with the character skins to find a perfect color match with the elf ears. I've included a reference image with values to make this simpler.

    Enjoy.

      SviExTool Version 1.4 is out.

      SVIEX units of AA2 Trial can be decoded from a command line like this:
      Code:
      CMD> sviextool /decode jg2e04_00_00\A00_00_O_body.sviex > jg2e04_00_00\A00_00_O_body.sviex.txt
      Encoding example:
      Code:
      CMD> sviextool /encode jg2e04_00_00\A00_00_O_body.sviex < jg2e04_00_00\A00_00_O_body.sviex.txt
      If you have any questions about the tool or want to talk about SVIEX units please discuss here.

      Happy experimenting!

      Update
      1.41: FIX Overwriting an existing sviex file didn't correct the length of the file. Such corrupt sviex units can crash AA2Trial.


      An example for PPD after having deleted vertices from a mesh which is target of an SVIEX unit can be found here.

        It should be run in the CMD if I'm not mistaken
        Database now has an Artificial Academy 2 section!

          Like all my command line tools, the SviExTool must be started from the command line in a command prompt. You should have set command completion active and also have checked Quick Edit in the properties to allow drag 'n drop of files.

          You can integrate several* tools in SB3Utility like this:
          1. Select a unit for which you want to register an external tool.
            [ATTACH]256408[/ATTACH]

          2. Browse to the tool and select it.
            [ATTACH]256409[/ATTACH]
            Add the arguments you like. Those can be found in the release posts for the tools.

          3. Register the tool.

          4. Double Click the unit.
            [ATTACH]256410[/ATTACH]


          *) A few tools require special argument treatment.

            That image looks so clean and soft where as the models originally look a bit pixelated ( So to speak ), how did you make it so soft?

            PS. Pardon me if it's wrong to ask here.

                    Male body adjustment

                    First-ever HF mod release!


                    I adjusted the male body models to look more natural. This mostly amounted to narrowing the hips to match the torso (because guys don't have hips like that), but I also had to fix Shota-kun's chest to not just be the female model with breasts at 0. Not going to touch Debu-kun for now because, frankly, I have no idea where to start.

                    Updated to version 0.2:

                    Tweaked the meshes more, changed the pubic textures, fixed a few lazy mistakes on my part, and made an uncensor to avoid forcing users to to mod that, er, "part" in separately. This uncensor matches skin tone and changes head color based on the mosaic color selected. An uncensored Type 4 body is included, even though I didn't modify the body mesh itself.

                    Updated to version 0.3:
                    Cleaned up some more jagged edges, and updated the uncensor mesh for compatibility with my Cartoon Uncensor (sold separately). This version should also fix a certain issue that appears when using a modified tan texture as well.

                    Full mod details and excuse log included in the readme. Have fun!

                    Filename is in Wizzard format out of habit. Please install using SB3UGS or whatever instead. Advance warning that this cannot be used as-is with other mods that replace the four *.xx files used.

                      Looks like mods and assets from Artificial Academy (and any other Illusion game, really) will be simple enough to import in AA2. Here's a conversion of my eyepatch mod for AA1, and the horns from PPD converted for use in AA2.

                      Eyepatch replaces thick-rimmed glasses, horns replace full-rimmed glasses. Both mods work on male and female characters.

                        I didn't like some installations in the AA2Edit. And here my first changes.

                        Replace this file in the data folder. Don't forget to do backup copies.

                          Each male body size could have one (just one). Find an unanimated bone - or insert one if there is none - and rescale X and Y for another diameter, Z for a different length. In some positions it will miss the target.

                            Hmmm... I notice, if you replace for exsample the body texture, where it exceed the original size of 512x512, than you get a weird result. The half guy is black then.
                            Unfotunately I didin't managed it at the moment, that the penis is automatically matching with the bodys color.
                            In the characters pp (jg2e01_00_00) is the body texture an BMP and in the texture pp (jg2e03_00_00) is it a TGA. The same is also with the arm, nails and face textures and all these textures are black.
                            This will make the work on the female uncensor a bit difficult, to match the vagina texture with the body and also to create new SVIEX for the new body parts.
                            I try still some tests.

                              Male and Female Personalities in Portraits [V0.2]

                              Yay! My first ever "mod" to be released!


                              What this mod does: It changes the kanji in the character portraits into English. All of the personalities should have English to them. I made some choices when it came to the male personalities so some are subject to change.

                              Download: Mega

                              How to install:Put it into the wizard and use make mod. It should work, it it doesn't just leave a message.

                              Other Notes: These attachments do not reflect my taste in the females.

                              Update: I redid some of them to go with the most recently translated personalities and I threw in the pp file cause its just easier of an install if it is there.... Been a whilleeeeee but here is the next version .5.
