Yeah, they do, others don't seem to mind, but in my case, they seem to nearly double my character's chest size which I don't like. That's one of the reasons I prefer the old textures, as they're actually closer to her in game model, so hopefully future updates (that hopefully we won't have to buy again...) will give more options for that kinda thing.

Ya that is what is annoying me at the min about it. I like the new model for it ... but I wish it respected the actual slider :( And indeed hopefully he will add options for this in future but until then old textures likewise :)

It may also be worth posting he did post this earlier on Twitter.

So I went ahead and bought it, 5$ is okay with me.
I do like the new breast shape and installer. I think if he adds more options like models and textures it'd be really nice. Better yet if he lets us easily use our own textures and models it'd be a really good buy. Someone should really suggest making his mod more of a tool to do that, it would justify purchase quite a bit. I sent an email but I think he responds to twitter more.

The major flaws so far are that the large areola seems to have an open seam around the breast so you can see through your character. And for whatever reason his textures are really muddy and and artifacted again. I really wish he'd figure that out! (you can see texture in my screenshot)

Either way I do think he's made an effort this time so I don't mind buying, I will definitely be making a round of new textures once he adjusts the breasts again. He said he would be on his twitter. Because of the model changes old texture mods will not align properly, so if he's going to make adjustments I want to see what they are before I start making textures.



This is much larger than normal via cheat engine.
While testing sizes smaller/larger than default slider parameters I noticed the breast to deform oddly, not because of the amount of polygons like previous version, but because of where the sizes start to change on the body. Basically it needs to be smoothed out around the edges where changes start to take place on the model. I doubt that will ever be fixed though since not a lot of people abuse the min/max slider with cheat engine? Either way until we see revised version of the breast we won't know how it is. I will say that making the breasts larger this time around has a nicer shape than before, way less blocky. When making them smaller than normal it can have a really nice perky shape, but you can't flatten them too much because of the issue I mentioned earlier.

Though the ".npdat" file extension seems to be proprietary to NaughtyPatch and might be similarly encrypted or obfuscated.
If this isn't possible, then at least this new patch is almost worth buying, just for the model / texture improvements.
A quick test says no, and based on how stringent he was with things this time around, I'm pretty sure he changed the encryption keys for the data.

The 000000.npauth file writes some computer-specific data to it (Other than the path), so you can't simply share it with other people.

First of all, I think it's totally valid for him to charge for is work. Even at $10-$15, you are getting the foundation by which all other textures were able to be built from. Something to consider also is that the donation function does not work for him due to where he lives (I'm a little skeptical in that tbh...). But yeah, valid charge.

Anyways, I'm having an issue and would like you guys to test this out:

The Emperor's New Boots are making my character's feet invisible! I tried returning the original files and reinstalled the mods, but the same issue persists. I sent him an email too, but a tweet might work better.

I'm playing as a miqo'te, but this might affect other races as well as other parts of the Emperor's set.

So if you guys could, give the Emperor's set a test and see if you are also getting those issues, cheers!

(Oh, and if you already found a fix, please share with the class )

I very much doubt this. I have friends in Japan and China who have both sent and accepted donations for various work. To be honest, if he does live in Japan, it's more dangerous for him to charge for this mod than accept donations, since it probably infringes on Square's copyright.

I asked him where he lived on that Tweet and he never responded.

I like the new feet models/textures. Sadly it looks like the lalafell feet still look the same as before. Anyone know if the feet will be updated/changed to look like the nicer new ones?

Default Cake and eat it?

So I have been trying out the new 2.1.1 version and I must say I am impressed.

I love the much higher res textures and the vastly improved feet but most of all the superbly modelled vagina and anus.

The only thing I don't like is the new breasts, I just can't get on with them. They just look odd on my character and I much prefer the older ones. So this got me thinking, can I have everything from the new but the breasts from the old.

It seems the answer is yes, you can. Though with one tiny issue that should easily be solved. Putting this here so people can try if they interested.

Process for Miqo/Hyur Midlander:
  • Firstly, I started with clean '040000' files.
  • Then I installed 'FF14ARRnaughtyPatch1.3.1' but in theory the free version could be used. This is of course to get the old breasts model.
  • Then I ran the 'NaughtyPatch2.1.1' installer and changed the settings as per the attached image. Essentially applying all changes except both the Hyur bodies, so it will keep the breasts from the first one.

This all worked fine, gave me newer lower body and old top body but with one obvious issue. Due to the fact the breasts have changed shape, the nipples on the new texture are in the wrong place.

So I loaded up TexTools2 and exported the new body to DDS as normal, from the looks, it should just be a case of moving the nipple to the correct position and importing back in. Assuming they map fine to the old nipple height, worst case would be to cut an old style nipple and put on new texture.

This is where I fall down as I can't seem to be able to save the DDS in the correct format for it to be successfully imported back into the DAT. I either get a flat out rejection error message or the texture ends up all messed up.

What program and settings are people using to save the DDS correctly so they can be imported? If someone here knows, let me know but I can also post this in the other DAT threads if not.

Bearing in mind, I only had a quick look and though I didn't see any other issues, I can't guarantee that once the nipples have been moved that everything will look perfect but it's certainly worth a try.

I might be to tired and mis-reading this but if you are trying to get the old breast models working - he has released that in the latest update.

First install everything from NpBasicF and then install what you want from NpBasicMod(old) and it will replace it. There are zip files in the download that you got to extract to make it work.

I did see and try the 'NpBasicMod(old)' in there but that's not what I am after, it is just the standard old one.

There is another one in there 'NpBasicBodyF(1.0)' which does seem to do what I am after. Not the most intuitive naming standard, thanks for that.

Unfortunately it looks damn awful though.



Nipples are in the right place but the texture now looks horrible as if the breasts had deflated with crazy artifacts now.

I suppose its early days and it could well be fixed in time.

It honestly didn't fix a thing about the shadows.
This is something present since early patches aswell. just go to a place well illuminated and zoom out the camera enough.

EDIT: adding furthermore evidence.

EDIT II: adding another glitchy problem.

EDIT III: I should be a damn patch tester.
