I'm currectly studying AOD because I'm using some music from the game for my TRLE but I'm not here to talk about the game's bugs. Despite everything, the opening scene makes me feel it's a TR game. It was THE example of how to change the character Lara Croft but keep the roots. CD doesn't understand TR imo.

Anyway, the opening FMV fascinates me. Her backpack and hair is so important here. That backpack must give her some power or something lol. Idk, I kinda see what you all love about AOD now. In my own way I guess. I still consider this a classic and should be played because of its secrets. And not the registered ones in the games 1-6.

So is the cut silencer still somewhere in whatever way they store weapons Lara has equipped but on her back/holsters?

I deleted a Lara replacement mid-level and well, her model got a bit weird.

Yeah. All of the things Lara can equip are stored in her model, including the harpoon gun, the silencer, and the diving mask.

Yup. It's possible to get the mask to appear on to Lara's face, however the harpoon gun apparently has no code so despite the model being there you cant actually equip it.

Yeah I was just curious about the model.

I suppose its a bit like the body-groups function in Gmod.

This has been confusing me for awhile. On my last AoD playthrough, I came across a weird bug. I was on Tomb of Ancients, at the broken bridge. I jumped to the gargoyles as intended by the designers, but Lara immediately held the ledge and let go of it. After a few tries, I decided to jump, tap the Action button and let go of the button. This time Lara grabbed the ledge, but she did her ‘grip losing’ animation slow-mo and let go of the ledge again. I somehow fixed it, can’t recall how. Just wanted to share...

The thing about changing a character is that you need to have a solid, consistent base to work from.

AOD Lara, despite her abrasiveness, is still clearly Lara Croft. She's daring, she's witty, she's inquisitive, and she's got class. Compared to her earlier incarnations, she's much angrier and less patient - she's been through some s**t, and she's bloody furious about it. But you can see the through-line here. Like "Yes, this is probably how Lara would act if the baddies decided to make things personal."

Just curious, can anyone upload an image of Lara wearing the cut-face mask item? never seen it.

Also would it have just been cosmetic?, I recall its an item in INVENT but I can't see how it would have worked mechanically except just as an cosmetic item.

If you mean the goggles and/or the rebreather (I can't recall anything else on her face, besides the gas mask) for the diving suit, then check out thatnorskchick2's ' It's Lara Croft, bitch: Leftovers' video, at 1:45. ( I can't post the link, since it would break rules)

Interesting enough, it is visible when she's changing out of the diving suit.
