    The purpose of this tutorial is for you to learn how to change the texture for each race

    First, you need to look for the python files in the directory below,

    C:\...\ICYDEMON 6_0\overrides\rules\race\*.py

    Second, open the python file of the race that you prefer to edit. This tutorial is only applicable to new subraces that has been added by Temple Plus.

    Note: This will not work with the generic races that ToEE has, as it has been internally set by the game. But you can change their texture path by editing the materials_ext.mes file in the Icy Demon directory.

    Third, here’s the reference list <see below> for new textures and generic textures. Just a reminder tread carefully when editing the .py file as it was very sensitive, any incorrect formatting, additional white spaces or typos will lead to CTD or crash to desktop, you have been warned!

    gray_elf raceSpec.material_offset = 26
    wild_elf raceSpec.material_offset = 29
    wood_elf raceSpec.material_offset = 43
    aqua_elf raceSpec.material_offset = 24
    drow_elf raceSpec.material_offset = 20
    eastern_texture raceSpec.material_offset = 8
    eastern_texture_dwarf raceSpec.material_offset = 6
    generic_human raceSpec.material_offset = 0
    generic_elf raceSpec.material_offset = 2
    generic_orc raceSpec.material_offset = 4

    Change the value of the raceSpec.material_offset and you are good to go! Also, I already added a seperate folder that contains all the unmodded .py of races, so all you need to do is edit them. :) (these folders will be in the next release 6.1)

    Why not host it on moddb? Didn't you already have a file there?

    Man, am I glad I read that: I've been trying to get Goodberries to stack without avail for a long time now. How did you discover what the problem was? I didn't see anything in either Goodberr.py or Protos.tab that seemed incorrect.

    Could we get this IcyDemon mod's features merged into a near future T+ release?

    Icydemon v 1 1 1 will be available after some time and supersedes old version uploads. Existing users will need to re-install their 'Temple plus' before installing the mod. The mod is now independent from Temple Plus, but still using the extenders. Temple plus is a requirement for this mod to work.

    Hi Sitra Achara, I hope you can issue a fix for this.

    [​IMG]

    Im sure this is not in your prior list, a minor stuff. But this issue lingered since TemplePlus-1.0-rc1. How do I know, I back track all previous releases on github and tested some of them (i.e., v1.0-rc1, v1.0.52, v1.0.54, and v1.0.55). Thanks!
