Legend/Anniversary Mesh Modding is here
 
A dozen of years later, Legend & Anniversary mesh modding is here. Me and TheIndra have been researching the games engine for months, and we finally got some results with mesh modding.

It is currently possible to model swap from existing models in the games (not all of them though). I was able to model swap Anniversary Lara to Legend Lara and vice versa. I was also able to make Amelia playable!

This is very exciting and this is just the beginning of Legend & Anniversary modding. I plan on writing a custom models exporter for Noesis, which will make us able to port custom models to the games.

Yass! How? Can you also use TRA Lara in next-gen? Wonderful! Does the ponytail work? I remember CD claiming that it was too glitchy.

Felix Kroft 12-06-21 22:19

Since the day that TR Legend got released , i've been dreaming to play as Flashback Classic Lara.
She would look good in Anniversary :D

Great News!

Yes, the ponytail works. And no, you can't use TRA Lara in next gen because the next gen version of the game uses whole different files with different formats.

Besides, I absolutely HATE how Legend looks in next-gen mode so do not hope for me to work on a custom model exporter for that format



Here's a video showcasing the mod.

Fantastic job as always! :cln::jmp::jmp:

Awesome work! Really exciting to see after all these years :)

Dying to see AOD Lara modded in one day :D

WoW!!!!!!!!

Seems The Great Chi was way ahead of you years ago, on mesh modding in Legend.

Is this just character changing only? or will it be possible to add multiple items and characters into a level, like helicopters and extra baddies as per The Great Chi's video...'Bolivian Danger'

It would be brilliant if we could mod Legend like that, we just do not have many modding tools for Legend at the moment, like we do have for earlier Tomb Raider games. But it seemed Chi had some way to do it ;)

Absolutely not. Chi just managed to spawn instances by editing the exe. In no way it is even near to the work me and Indra have done.

You can do the same thing by using Indra's TR7 Hook: https://github.com/TheIndra55/TRAE-menu-hook

So what are you offering us in the way of modding Legend, we need detail?

Can you read the main post again, please? Thanks.

Fixed hair collisions
 
We're doing more and more progress, day after day, and discovering a lot of things. I managed to find the files responsible for physics and collision, and I managed to port the original file from Legend to Anniversary and vice versa.

this file will probably also allow us to add more physics bones in the future

ThirteenCroft 19-06-21 15:38

It's incredible!!

I'm so glad to see people having interest in modding LAU games :jmp:

Boobandie 24-06-21 05:13

Does this mean Lara's hair can be fixed in the Bolivia cutscenes? In a few of them Lara's ponytail moves down to root itself at the base of her skull (perhaps a leftover position from the braid model?), it's quite noticeable in the cutscene where she meets Rutland.

Also could a recreation of beta Legend Lara be added now? What is probably her head was found in the Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition files Core were working from, and aside from adding the backpack straps from the outfit select's winter outfit preview, lengthening her sleeves, and adding the flares/flash grenades, the final model is basically identical.

I did not find the location of cutscenes animations yet, but when I do, yes we will probably be able to fix Lara's ponytail changing position. Yeah it's probably a leftover from the beta braid model, or maybe they were working on Anniversary too at the same time and made some mess, since that position is the same as Anniversary's braid bones.

A recreation of beta Legend Lara will be possible when a model exporter will be created, to export custom models to the mesh format

Playable Anaya

Looks great, it's kind of weird that Anaya wasn't an unlockable outfit for Peru. With the same model structure as Lara and Amanda it seems obvious.

turneraider 29-06-21 03:44

Words cannot express my excitement for this- :admles:

Dmitry 02-07-21 10:07

@LuckyEdge10 Fantastic work, well wait more information about progress, tools will be open source or not? Just a question.

P.S. Will be cool saw mesh editing for TR: Underworld too :D

ATombRaiderFan 03-07-21 09:33

It's great to see Legend/Anniversary mesh modding happening. Keep up the good work LuckyEdge10 and TheIndra :tmb:

Oh this reminds me that there's a AoD Lara model buried under the ground during the Peru flashback. Is it a playable model or just a mesh shape?

the buried model under the ground is part of the level geometry, not playable

Btw I've noticed that for now you're only modding Anniversary, is it because that's the easiest one to modify? Or do you just want to focus on that for now? :)

I'm just using the Anniversary outfit for tests, but it is very easy to port a custom model from an outfit to another. For example, the TR1 Lara mod was originally in the Anniversary outfit slot, then I moved it in the Classic slot when the mod was finished

AimlessThunder 11-07-21 14:49

Great job! AoD Lara is so gorgeous! :D

UroshUchiha 12-07-21 12:32

This looks fantastic! Amazing work!

AimlessThunder 12-07-21 17:42

Do you think that you will also be able to edit Underworld?:cln: TRU Lara is in desperate need of hands reductions.
Can you also add reboot Lara in TRL-TRA?

I have no intentions to research Tomb Raider Underworst. I hate that game.

We dont have the official model, we have a fanmade made by HenryArts but the Original Pre-Alpha Lara Model is lost :(

Zolee 25-07-21 20:02

I would love to play legend with that pre-alpha Lara version. We have the official texture of that hair and the braid, I can't believe we don't have the model either. Actually there are several XNA Lara mods that are very close to this Lara, isnt that possible to import those?
