Brandon smith ss slinger

Close-up of custom slinger. I repurposed the base of the Kushala slinger because it has a layered look to it similar to her shoulder pads. I made the hook along the center myself to match better.

Brandon smith vertex color

Comparison of having and not having object-space vertex color on the model. The material uses this info to light the hair properly.

Brandon smith camilla lod

Like Camilla (reused image here), I put outline meshes in different stages of LOD to mimic camera-distance based line thickness.

Since collision is invisible, discovering functionality is done through practical knowledge and trial-and-error. Despite the starting sphere of the collision having the same setup as the end bone sphere, the starting sphere doesn't seem to have collision.

I found offsets by changing what seemed to be the Z axis. You can see the jigglebone on the front shoe flap moves forward in reaction to this offset.

My third Monster Hunter: World character port from Fire Emblem: Warriors. I used this model to research physics collision files and learned about how the hair material uses object-space vertex color. Special thanks to those in the modding community:
___________
+ AsteriskAmpersand for his Blender plugin, material editor, experience, and assistance for all my questions.
+ JodoZT for creating the nochunk tool and .tex-to-.dds converter.
+ Karbon for being the pioneer of mhw physics and collision files.
+ KuroKairaku for ripping the Lucina model.
