Viera'ra 【A Female Viera Overhaul】Version 2.0 Update:
Added a (vanilla) Ear + Tail option as well as a Standalone Horn option!
This mod is a complete overhaul of Female Viera that makes them look, head to toe, like Female Au'ra!
This mod includes: Seemless Body and Face Scales, A Semi-Functional Tail, Interchangeable Horns via Ears, and 4 Scale colors!
This was a bit messier, and harder, then the Male version due to the amount of scavenging I had to do, otherwise this would've been out a day earlier. Nonetheless I think I came up with a good result! The Black and White scales were my own edit since I couldn't seem to find a set I liked【Requirements】
Ilusio Vitae Custom Skeleton (IVCS): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yo-ynhqH-gMTN7SQv55x2yzOe_V2II9dSAJE8FnEghE/edit
Bibo+ is needed so that the scales will work, and IVCS is needed so that the Tail will work. Otherwise without IVCS the tail will go stiff and move with the head!【Conflicts】
I tried my best to make this mod as friendly as possible with other types of mods, but of course I can only do so much with such a large project!
This mod conflicts with Ear Mods, Body Texture Mods, and Face Texture Mods【Compatibility】
Aside from the three I just stated, this mod does play well with Face Sculpts, Eye Textures, Eyebrow/Eyelash Mods, Facepaints, Hair Mods, Animation Mods, etc.
This time I was smart enough to save unmerged assets! (Mostly because I know better then to get between female character players and their makeup mods) Which I will release soon!【FAQ】
Q: "Is there a way to take a specific part of this mod, like the horns and tail or the scales, and use them exclusively without the rest?"
A: Yes! I made sure that the installer is very specific so you can completely customize what you want and don't want!
Q: "Do you have plans to update this with Vanilla Ear and Tail variations or new types of tails?"
A: I am curious about looking into alternate tails and even supplying a vanilla ear+tail option in the future but it is not at the top of my priority list, so the best I can give is a 'probably'
Q: "Can I commission you to do a custom face scale or custom ear/tail/horn combonation?"
A: I am open to doing commissions in the future but I'd like to get a bit more confident in my skills and acquire a few more materials to make the creation process easier! But rest assured I have considered it!
Q: "Will you do Male Viera?"
A: Already did! Check it out https://www.xivmodarchive.com/modid/58321
Q: "Will you do [Insert Race] as well?"
A: Uhh... Maybe? I am interested in doing a Miqo'te equivalent but that's very far down the road. As for the other races, especially Lalafell and Roegadyn, they will probably be pushed very far down so much so I'd honestly rather tell you they'd never come. Sorry!
Q: "The tail isn't working! It's stiff and clips through the body!"
A: As I stated prior, you require the IVCS mod in order to get the skeleton to work with the new tail bones.
Q: "Why no Black Eyes option?"
A: I considered it, however I didn't want to bloat the installer anymore then it already was lol. Additionally the idea is to keep both versions as close to Vanilla representations as possible! I figured after I release the resources those who are really hungry for that look can make the edit themselves!
Q: "The top of my hair has two holes!"
A: This is because Viera specific hairstyles do not account for "not" having the vanilla ears so a hole is usually created in the absence of ears. The best advice I can give is to use a modded hairstyle or shared hairstyle.
Q: "I have ICVS downloaded but the tail doesn't animate when idle or walking!"
A: This is because Viera do not have the animations to support a tail, however the issue is usually remedied by "shared" animations such as Weapon Drawn, and other none race specific animations such as dances.
Q: "Can I pose the tail in CMTool/Anamnesis"
A: Yes, absolutely! You simply need to locate the bone used by the tail in your respective program. In Anamnesis you can find it in the third bone tab listed under "Tail A-E"
Q: "Is this Gen3 Compatible?"
A: I... don't know? To be entirely honest I'm not sure how that works and didn't mod this with that knowledge in hand, so if any modders want to inform me or even make a Gen3 compatible port themselves, feel free!
Q: "Are au'ra or viera cuter?"
A: I will not be answering anymore questions, have a good day.【Permissions】
