Arrow Tomb Raider Animated Braid Mod

Few years ago i made braid mod with the help of croftyboy, Sardoc and The Great Chi from TRF. At that time it was not bad and really good to see Lara with braid. Unfortunately it was not animated because the engine didn't support it. But now thanks to Tomb1Main it's now possible to play Lara and implement her braid with animations. This mod fixes Lara's braid model add the braid in all the levels including Tomb Raider Unfinished Business. My good friend Croftyboy improved the braid mesh so that it could look like a braid Hope you like this mod and enjoy

How To Use The Mod:
After you download the mod from the link below. Extract the data folder inside the game and replace the files. (backup your files just in case) Then put Tomb1Main inside cfg folder and replace it. That's it. You can now play the game with animated braid.

Is there a reason for the .png and .pcx files to be here?
Also what are LEVEL1 (1).phd and Shrinking wedge.trmvb?

Looks great. Only problem is I can't get it to work for Unfinished business. Works fine in the main game... Not sure why

Thanks. I'm glad you like it.

@UroshUchiha actually there's no reason. I just uploaded the whole data folder.
LEVEL1 (1).phd and Shrinking wedge.trmvb are letfovers from the mod. You can delete them, i forgot to delete them before i uploaded the mod.

@tincheo It's interesting since i implemented the braid mod in UB levels as well. I'll look into it to find the problem.

Great idea and concept!

My *realism* senses are tingling though. Perhaps now that she has a free flowing braid here, perhaps her head mesh should be edited as - her hair showed so thick above the hair tie because it was meant to be, her hair bunched up. Looks a little strange, just my opinion! maybe the back end of her TR2/TR3 head mesh could be replaced over it while keeping her TR1 face and intact

Also probably a good idea to make sure the mod upload is clean, removing redundant files that arent needed.

Yes I agree. It's nice to finally see a free flowing braid in TR1, but of course the sloppy bun doesn't aesthetically lend itself at all to just tagging a braid on the end of it. The TR2 head + face retextured back to TR1's face would be absolutely and definitively perfect!

Yes i also agree with that. I may try it on TR2 Lara face to see how it looks first. Since Lara's in game model's hair is supposed to be bun it doesn't look natural i guess
