Morphs that change outfit and skin

How do you make those morphs that change outfit and skin?

You know...Like the Fel Orc one Blizzard used for the Netherwing questline, or the Broken one you use in Tempest Keep during the Karabor questline.

My attempts to create those morphs result in either:

1. A morph that doesn't wear player outfits or change skins to match the player's

2. A morph that has the player's skin and not the skin of the race I want to make a morph off.

 

For instance, If I want to make a Naga male morph that retains the player's armor. How would I do that?

1. use any characters model.

2. create a displayID for it in creaturedisplayinfo.dbc

3. create an extraID for it in creaturedisplayinfoextra.dbc, you'll likely want to create a naked model

4. switch #20 (1-based) value in creaturedisplayinfoextra.dbc to 1. Thats all.

This is the DBC. The problematic line in question is 25002. 25000 and 25001 works.

Here is 25000.

Note how the skin color changes depending on my skin, and it wears all my clothes.

 

Heres 25002:

The skin color does not change, and it's naked all the time. I have tried copying the exact same clothes to the Naga male as the female but it did nothing. I've been having this issue for years, I've never been able to learn how to make these morphs tick. Sometimes they magically work, most of the times, they don't. It's not the blp, it's not the displayid, I simply don't know.

Well, are you completely sure that it is not just a model-related issue? I have noticed you are using retro-ported models. I have no idea what makes character models character-ish so they can actually wear an equipment, but I'd say its a model/race DBC problem.

I tried removing the Cata Naga model, same thing, and then I tried with a normal Human female, same result. I'm missing something somewhere, but I have no idea where.

Now this is getting too odd. Do you even reffer to that creaturedisplayinfoextra entry in your creaturedisplayinfo entry?
https://wowdev.wiki/DB/CreatureDisplayInfo
field #4. It needs to contain ID of displayID's extra information row in creaturedisplayinfoextra.dbc. Thats probably the last idea I've got Oo.

Ofc I did, Like I said, it's a mystery. Perhaps I can PM you the prototype patch so you can look it over?
