Wich set have you planned for T2?

At the present time none, since T2 was really good looking comparing all other sets. I have something in mind from the new tiers but since i've step into some bugs i have postpone it a bit to find a workaround.

So i've been working a bit the weapons, since i've found some bugs for armors and trying to solve those, i finished weapons from Blackwing Lair. I also made an successful attempt from legion artifacts, since the have many particles its hard to make them work plus the new phys on them, for Benediction. I want to tell me if people agree for this change.

The idea is actually not to change all or none of the Blackwing Raid, since it had the best made items from whole raid trio. Tho still some aren't so good. Im down to leave changed Ashkandi, the 2 maces, the 2 field corn like staves and the 2 swords maladath & nightmare.

I read someone talking about porting the new water to vanilla, wow that would be awesome. I tried that myself like two years ago but never succeeded.

All of the new weapons look better than the original models. I say keep them all. People can delete the files they don't want.

I also suggest, if it is impossible to change only Dagon to reverse the change because Deepstriders are common and Dagon is just one quest.

I also think T2 generally looks great and isn't a high priority for replacement. If I had all the files, I would probably only replace warrior.

But Uthil, I am conflicted about one thing. You modified the WoW.exe to enable the new gear models. Let's suppose this is OK with respect to anti-cheating measures, but.. I already use a modified version that enables 256 sound channels (see this: https://forum.twinstar.cz/showthread.php/94969-Question-about-a-modified-exe?p=741649&viewfull=1#post741649 ) Can you modify this .exe instead?

Well some tests show that the behavior of the game didn't change at all with the 4gb patch, lets say tolerance was slightly up but no difference. If you suppress the game might crash with memory error no matter what. So keep the 256 sound channel, as i did ;). I removed the .exe file from the last update so not confuse people.

Hey,

great work Uthil.

I'm new to this so my question is: is it possible to keep T-Sets as they were?

Yes, if you dont use the armors patch when im gonna release it. The armors patch is an extra addition, if you want you use it, same as my main mod.

Question: Is it possible for the vanilla blood elf models (basically just night elf reskins) to be changed to the actual blood elf models from retail/tbc? If so, then how (since I do not want to ask someone to make a patch, unless they'd want to)? 

Just noting that I do love your work Uthil! Changes the way the game feels slightly to as if I'm almost playing retail, but a good version!

There is already one guy from my server that he actually port the blood elves from TBC to vanilla. And you can choose to replace a specific race  or all. Ill try find his topic and pm you.

Hey can you PM me it too, that sounds really interesting. Is it the old BE model or new one? Either way it sounds cool.

Do you still update this mod? If so do you think you can replace ghouls with the new ghoul models? Its currently in the 7.2 PTR

Uthil, may I suggest that you add a separate patch that contains the models that you worked on but haven't included in the main release (earth elemental, bat, chimaera)? They are still very nice, you could make it an optional installment.

By the way, I did some snooping around and found something. I wonder if you can confirm. Is it true that which weapons an NPC wields is determined 100% on the server side and cannot be edited? (unless on client side you change the looks of the model in every instance)

I ask because I am kind of bothered by Scalding Broodlings' pickaxes. This could be an error on server side, but maybe they are supposed to wear some particular pick-axe item for some unknown reason, in which case it's an "error" that the new model has the ability to hold weapons. I am thinking about asking the server admins to look into it, but I am not sure if this is how it works.

Another problem I've found with a model is that female nagas don't hold one-hand items (mace, dagger) properly. It's on the back of their hand, not in their hand:
