|Best way to convert a c2 norn to c3/ds?
So I found some norns that look great but are only for c2, I was wondering if there was a way to port them over to c3/ds as I'm way more familiar with that game. Even if the way is arbitrary and takes long I'd like to know because maybe I'll do it anyway and I'm curious. I don't really mind if the genetics don't transfer over, I'm more about the appearance.
I probably will not share when I'm done unless I get permission from the original creators though.
I hope that makes sense! Thanks for helping!
By Norns I assume you mean Norn breeds? You can definitely convert them and it's been done many times before. Your biggest hurdle is probably going to be body data. Hybrids of converted and normal breeds also tend to look pretty weird, and not in a good way, but that won't be too much of an issue since you can just breed them with other converted breeds.
Edit: Here's a guide to C3/DS breed making. This might be a good starting point for you.
How familiar are you with the Command Prompt?...
So I have a command line tool to convert breeds between games. YMMV
So you'll want to grab the tool here at the Breed-Util GitHub Releases page.
Its not that scary, I swear
People couldn't keep track of all the flags and options of the Command Line, so I simplified it.
Basically on windows you can double click it, and it will open a command line window, and it will ask you questions on how you want to convert the breed.
When it asks for a folder, or file, just drag and drop it onto the window.
!When it asks for images or body data, drag the folder over, not the individual files.
When it asks for a output genome file name, it tells you to drag it in, that is wrong. Type in just the name you want it to be when altered.
Hopefully its easy enough to follow.
If not find me on EemFoo's Discord @bedalton. I am almost never on CreaturesCaves.
You will need to alter the ATTs to look okay when crossed with C3DS breeds.
Here's a guide I wrote about using my ATT plugin for IntelliJ
IntelliJ is memory hungry, so if you have a constrained system, it might not be the best fit.
