And I need it bad.

Here's the deal. For the first time, the devs at FFXI decided to make male and female taru attire different, namely the AF3 Savant set. There's a little skirt attached to the body piece and little lacy shorts for the legs.

AND IT'S JUST WRONG. WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS.

I figured out how to switch the DAT for the legs, so my female Taru is wearing the pants.

But I can't figure out how to get the skirt off the body (story of my life, but we won't dwell on that here). There's only one DAT for the body, and I'm guessing the gender flags whether the skirt gets shown or not somehow.

My question is, how do I get rid of the skirt, or have my female Taru flag as male without changing the way she looks?

I know I could just use Plasticsurgeon, but I want to do it the hard way.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

TIA

Wumy

Are the male and female bodies in two different dat files? Can you just make a copy of malebody.dat and name it femalebody.dat (replacing the original female version)?

changed the legs just using the model viewer i assume?

try changing the body instead of the legs because the skirt is most likely a sprite attached to the female ver of the body dat.

I'd look into it for you but I lost all my dat tools/ffxi when I reinstalled my windows and accidentally formatted my 2nd hdd in the process with all my backups on it.

Thanks for the replies.

There is a single DAT file for the body, and two DAT files for the legs, a male and a female version. I didn't have any trouble swapping around the leg file DATs.

Is the sprite part of the body DAT or a second file that's flagged depending on the gender of the PC?

I shall poke around on the net more and see if I can figure it out.

I looked in the alanta viewer and both the taru male and female did not have skirts.

I know. But my taru in game is wearing pants with a skirt over top of it, lol. It looks weird.

I swapped the DAT for the pants. The skirt is part of the body and I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

There's only one DAT file for the body. Hence my problem.
