Samples of Io's halberd on the Longsword and Insect Glaive. The insect glaive glow changes color depending on what kinsect you have equipped.

Brandon smith ss durability

Mantles deteriorate over time during use. I show this deterioration using 4 stages of light breathing. As the mantle gets weaker, it flashes faster.

My fourth Monster Hunter: World character port, from Code Vein. This was my most ambitious project: I made a new slinger model, two versions of her, mantle replacements with working deterioration, weapon replacements, physics, and the first mhw mod with a complete face rig. She had to be almost completely re-weighted... Special thanks to those in the modding community:
___________
+ AsteriskAmpersand for his Blender plugins, material editor, experience, and assistance for all my questions.
+ Crimson for the mantle breathing particle effects.
+ JodoZT for creating the nochunk tool and .tex-to-.dds converter.
+ Karbon for being the pioneer of mhw physics and collision files.
+ Gatomiau for ripping the Io models for me.
