Default [Benchmark] Proof of concept mod for stormblood

Description
This is the sample "barbie doll" mod that is available on the VRS website sample list. I repacked it into an independant dat container and modified the index to use it.

This will not work on anything but the stormblood benchmark, if you try it on any other benchmark/the actual game, it will simply not load or crash at launch
(due to the fact replaces the existing index file instead of updating the one already there)

How to use:
  1. Open the zip and navigate to <benchmark folder>\game\sqpack\ffxiv>
  2. Extract and overwrite the files inside it
  3. Go to character creation and select any female race except lala
  4. It will apply for the following clothing sets:
    • Smallclothes (underwear/nude)
    • Cascadier
    • Cascadier (red)
  5. Create a character and select one of the cascadier sets
  6. Run benchmark
  7. ???
  8. Profit

How to uninstall:
  1. Replace 040000.win32.index2 with the original one in the benchmark
  2. Optional: delete 040000.win32.dat1

That means you'd be able to make an installer if naughtyweaver doesn't work with SB anymore?

That's the plan, initially I'll simply update the existing addon to make it work after the initial 4.0 patch, then we have much bigger plans.

Updating the addon will be very quick and easy, we have no solid timeframe for the latter however, only that it will be post launch.

I'd be very interested in the methodology for this, since both TexTools and ffxivexplorer can't open the benchmark files.

file explorer can, it simply doesn't keep a list of index 2 hashes <-> file names. You work with them the exact same way you would work with index2's in the main game: poorly

Textools can't simply because it hardcodes the locations of the item lists in the dats, it would simply be a matter of giving it the location of them as they're stored in the benchmark. Previous versions of textools did need updates because the main game moved them around in the past (due to them growing in size from patches)
