Thumbs up Tomb Raider (2013) Modding Thread, Costumes & Texturing Discussion

I've decided to make this thread in order to make it possible for other Tomb raider fans to mod the game, whether your a pro at this or novice. I'm not an expert so team-work must be empathized. The game is amazing, but the default outfits are limited unlike previous games.

In order to use Texmod, as i've mentioned in another thread is force Directx11 to be directx9 cause lets face it, Texmod only works with dx9 and Forcing DirectX 9 mode results in an approximately 25% performance boost at a small loss of visual fidelity.

So, lets cut to the chase.
  1. Launch the Registry Editor (open the Start Screen/Start Menu, type regedit, hit Enter).
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crystal Dynamics\Tomb Raider\Graphics
  3. Modify RenderAPI value to 9.

Note: Revert to 0 for DX11, anything else will result in DX11 renderer with some DX11 features disabled.

You will now be able to use Texmod.
Another thing i must mention as i've experienced is that the game uses multiple textures, so a mod that mite work for 22% of the game mite not work further in progress. Another thing is that the hair consists of three files, one of which is the face texture also. From trying to mod, i managed to get the hair mod i created to work on the benchmarking but ingame, i've had issues. Where the ponytail will stay eg red and the main clump of hair with stay brown or vice versa. But sometimes the mod will work, but no in cutscenes, for me anyways.

This can also be said for her clothes, they use multiple textures.
Hopefully this will be figured out, I've seen other sites about modding tomb raider, but i've tried numerous mods and had trouble getting them working. Texmod has caused my game glitch a few times, s'ppose it's really my fault and when searching through the textures the game has frozen on me multiple times. So, it's a delicate process especially on cracked versions.

They can be useful, if you have extracted your own and simply wanted to do quick cop and paste. Which is a time saver. But image sizes can range in sizes and as i mentioned multiple textures. Just trying to mod the hair is driving me crazy.

I have 85 .dss files that contains Lara's skin, clothes etc.
It also contain other files, because they are not extracted by mesh or object.

The only problem is that the zip-file will be 108MB in size.

That image is huge, taking ages for it to load up.
You should really put a smaller one. Not everyone has a speedy broadband ^_^
And no, I don't think that texture is the game texture, It must be a texture extracted from the game or it won't work.
