Body Editing

Postby sitew33 on Sun Dec 24, 2017 2:02 pm

I know most of the experienced modders know this already but I'll post how to edit shoulder with, arm length and body length.

Open png file with 7zip then drag the "appearance info.RDAT" to desktop
Edit the "Appearance info.RDAT" with Notepad++

For shoulder width look for "rightArm.ty":and "leftArm.ty" - Change both to same number
Most players are usually (17.99999999999,)
I think 15.5, has the best look but you can adjust to your liking.
*****Make sure there's always a (,) after your number Example (15.0,)******

For arm length look for "rightHand.ty": and "leftHand.ty" - Change both to same number
For short arms use (26.0,) and for very long arms (29.0,) but you can adjust to your liking

For body length look for "spine2.ty":
I think (12.75,) equates to about 50 -the middle measurement used by CAP.
Increasing the number shortens the torso and lengthens the legs. Decreasing the number lengthens the torso and shortens the legs

For neck length look for "head.ty":
Increasing or decreasing the values will change the neck length


Hit file then save. I then delete the the old "Appearance info.RDAT" from the open 7zip then drag the edited "Appearance info.RDAT" from desktop to open 7zip
Copy the edited png file into you modded folder and you changes should appear when you go to edit player.

Someone did already make a tutorial for this but your instructions are pretty clear and easy to follow.
I'm sure this will help some people out.

Yeah me being new to it all, I wondered if I should have put it in the other section. There is so much info you can go crossed eyed sometimes looking for stuff. Your info has been immensely helpful.

i'm late, but thanks for this. u said that 12.75 equates to about the default 50 for body length, how did u come to that conclusion?

there has to be some sort of equation that can be applied to the other lengths and widths as well to find the default 50 value. ill have to mess with it sometime.

Mostly trial and error. I played with different values and compared models to how they looked compared to CAP's that you can changed body parts. For longer arms I just usually go with 28.0 and go higher or lower from there until I'm satisfied with the look.

Is it possible to change player heights this way too? :oops:
(going above the 7'7 threshold that seems to be in place)

Are there any numbers for the wingspan that cannot be used. I tried 25.8 with JJ Barea but the game crashes when I load him in edit roster.

Tried out some other stuff as well. Game is always crashing :(

You have to use notepad++. If you use regular notepad the game will crash.

Ok cheers. Quick question: which files contain the arm textures like tattoos? Is it possible to swap them on another .png without problems (except maybe skin color matching).

Thanks guys. (Y)

I had a few people ask me about wingspans. You can use this thread for assistance, see the 1st post.
Also if the player appearance does not include the player proportions you can just copy them from another player
