Holy Moly Guacamole I am stoked to see this! Thank you so much @leeviathan!!
I have been reborn to want to "Play" (rather than code ElvUI backport all the time) TBC again now with this final piece of the missing puzzle. Thank you thank you!

PS: This is or isn't compatible with Bambay's mods?

Thank you so much for this Mod :) made my BC experience so much more enjoyable!
I seem to have FPS drops/ Stutters sometimes with this mod, cant figure out when it happens seems random but pretty often.
If i remove the mod all is fine (this is the only mod i'm using).

running 2.4.3 BC, Tauren Female character.

did anyone else report similar problems?

thank you again for your Mod <3 love it

oh and im getting like 120 FPS baseline in BC so i dont think/hope its not a hardware issue. i'm also running Legion fine on this PC

I seem to have FPS drops/ Stutters sometimes with this mod, cant figure out when it happens seems random but pretty often.

Thanks for the report, I'll have to investigate. I had similar issues myself, but figured it was because my computer is very old and stuttery anyway.

UPDATE: Something about the BC client itself seems to not jive with any patched-in character model (works fine with creature models). The stuttering thing even happens with the original low-poly character models ported down from WotLK or up from Classic, or even just switching M2s from the very same client; just renaming DraeneiFemale.m2 to BloodElfMale.m2 and placing it in the Character/BloodElf/Male/ directory causes the same hiccup to occur when the client loads BloodElfMale.m2. In fact, changing even 1-bit of superficial information in the hex code of any patched-in character .M2 file will cause the issue. Maybe it's a residual effect from anti-cheat mechanics?

UPDATE 2: Of course I'd figure out a solution 10 minutes after posting questions in every forum I could find. My solution, or hacky work-around, was to change the location of the character models from "Character\..." to "Creature\..." and update the CreatureModelData.DBC file to reflect this.

Thank you leeviathan :) I have played with the updated Patch for about a week and had no issues with stutter at all! works beautifully <3

I made a "race swap" based on your Patch and following this guide (got no experience with this stuff what so ever, im a 3d artist and not at all good with tecnical stuff.) https://www.ownedcore.com/forums/world-of-warcraft/world-of-warcraft-model-editing/wow-me-tools-guides/39999-guide-changing-only-player-characters.html

 Everything is still running and looking great after my "swap" :) super happy with my game!

have a great day and thank you again for your work

May I ask why you need WoWMe to run those? Cant client read the MPQ file as in vanilla or WotLK ?

Others have done it, but I don't know how to make the client read custom patches without WoWMe in TBC.

Download wowme.exe, place in wow directory. ( where the tbc normal wow.exe is located. for example mine is E:\World of Warcraft - The Burning Crusade 2.4.3.) Then download the .mpq file. place that in the same area, except now go into the data folder. ex: E:\World of Warcraft - The Burning Crusade 2.4.3\Data. launch wowme.exe and your good to go.

Thanks mate! I am a big fan of this kind of mods. Can't wait to test it.

It would be much better if you manage to make it work without wowme.

For sure will bookmark this thread and follow it. Keep it up.

Im trying to get the Model Editor exe working with my own custom launcher. It wont work unless I specifically start it from the folder its in. Do you know if it launches with extra arguements or commands?

Major update: just added a WotLK version with many improvements to the original mod including better facial textures and legion/bfa versions of helmets and shoulders. I will be updating the BC version and adding a CL version as soon as I can.

Post by: mikki0033 on December 28, 2018, 09:07:59 am
I tested your mod for wotlk and was incredibly surprised. NPC is almost the same as in the original wotlk client with only hd textures and no frills of the legion and bfa. You are a great lad who did this job.
I now have a question: in Northrend, all npc are replaced by hd or only a small part?
UPD: found a bug. Some sound emotions such as laughter, etc. are missing. at the Draenei and the Blood Elves.
Title: Re: [Release] WoD Character Models (CL, BC, LK)
Post by: leeviathan on January 04, 2019, 03:42:21 am
All Human, Orc, Dwarf, NightElf, Undead, Gnome, Tauren, Troll, BloodElf, and Draenei NPCs use the same HD character models as player characters.

I fixed that emote bug, I must have just grabbed the wrong file initially. Thanks for pointing it out.

Thank you for the great work! ;D I found this patch to work really well with Finsternis' creature model patches (if you delete/don't use his Patch-K) :) is there some way to add the goblins patch from another thread? there's a patch-C with a modified patch-K there

when i used the following mods in the following order: leeviathan's wod models, cata water, cata trees, goblin patch, finsternis' F and G patches, the modified patch-K that came with the goblin patch, the goblin models were perfectly working, but everything else was broken... when i deleted the patch-C and the patch-K, everything's good - i looked into the mpqs and i think these 2 patches could be working together because this wod model patch uses different dbc files (no creaturedisplayinfo) like in the patch-F or G

To make it all work:
1.) Delete your goblin patch
2.) Download this goblin patch (https://www.mediafire.com/file/65s9wu7tnxfxwsd/patch-GOBLINS.MPQ/file), rename the patch file so that it loads last
3.) Rename my WoD Character models patch file so that it loads second-to-last

Hello guys!

I love the mod, but I have one problem. I would like to use the WoWFOVFix.exe to automatically set the correct FOV in TBC, but that cannot run the WoWME.exe (I renamed it to WoW.exe, but it complains that it's not the correct one). Is there any solution for this mod to work with the FOV fix exe, or to work with the original exe?

Thanks!

I'm trying to get the WoD character models working and when i insert it into my data folder they load but there eyes are all missing and the faces are really distorted. The client I downloaded has patches patch,patch-2,patch-3 and patch-w. I've tried removing some or all of those in different order and it all results in the same glitch. Some help would be appreciated.

There are already FoV patched WoW.exe files on ownedcore, I used them without any problem with wowme.

also it's a good idea to use the 4GB patch on the fov fix exe to let the game use more ram

Patch-W is Warmane's WoD model patch - if you have both mods installed, they are conflicting. If I remember correctly they have another patch-W in the data/enUS folder, so that could cause glitches too.
Title: Re: [Release] WoD Character Models (CL, BC, LK)
Post by: nadszeg on January 17, 2019, 10:57:48 am
It's called patch-enUS-w.mpq I think. Delete that too and this mod will work. Or if you want to make sure everything works, go to Warmane's site and download the 'Wrath of the Lich King (old)' client.

Hi there

I have a proposal.  I have a Multi Race Patch (worgen, pandaren, goblin, tuskar, etc), with Broken WOD characters and NPC (Classic errors like the Jaw not working, etc).   

Would you fuse both works, and I could provide the files for both, patch, dbc, and core changes so everyone can have this?  A clean multirace patch with WOD characters and NPCs?

Hey, I am the guy who posted the Goblin patch, its cool to see it integrated here.

In what order should I load this + the goblins + finsternis┬┤ creature models?
Title: Re: [Release] WoD Character Models (CL, BC, LK)
Post by: Marulu on January 20, 2019, 04:50:37 pm
Ok, I got it working but it seems like male nightelve NPCs (not player characters) have the femal model with the male skin wrongly mapped to it.
Title: Re: [Release] WoD Character Models (CL, BC, LK)
Post by: Marulu on January 20, 2019, 04:55:01 pm
I also noticed this patch breaks certain models from the finsternis creature patch, like the fire elemental. The databases have to get merged together for it to work perfectly.
Title: Re: [Release] WoD Character Models (CL, BC, LK)
Post by: Marulu on January 20, 2019, 05:16:09 pm
Nevermind, changing the load order to be:

1.This patch
2.Goblin
3.Creaturepatch1
4.Creaturepatch2

Fixed all my issues.
