    NOTE: As of 5 December 2017, this thread is obsolete and will no longer be updated. The patcher should provide all necessary files and any future updates. If you're here hoping to fix rampant Human models everywhere on a Titanium install, know that Titanium is no longer supported and the only fix is for you to update to a Steam or Daybreak install.

    If you're playing Shards of Dalaya using modern EQ files, you most likely see broken NPC models everywhere in the form of naked male humans. The fix for this is simple and only requires a ~30 KB download.
    1. Download the attached New _chr Files.zip.
    2. Open the .zip.
    3. Drop all files from the .zip into your modern EQ directory, overwriting all when prompted.
    4. Log in (or /cm refresh) and enjoy working models!
    Please share any problems you run into here.

    NOTE: This restores ~98% of NPC models for Steam/Daybreak installs, but as I compiled these 154 files on my own "the old-fashioned way," a few zone/monster combinations have slipped past me. These will be fixed later on either through the SoD patcher or through an update to this post.

    When I logged in last night, I noted my wolf pet on my BST was a human in Athica, will this fix that issue also?

    For broken global models, you'll need SoD's GlobalLoad.txt and GlobalLoad_chr.txt. You should be able to get these via the patcher, but in case you can't, try downloading the attached .zip and dumping both files into your Resources subfolder within the EQ directory.

    Also note that GlobalLoad.txt in particular has some bloat that will likely be trimmed in the future, so your loading time between server select to char select might be a little slower than usual. GlobalLoad and GlobalLoad_chr.txt have zero impact on zone-to-zone loading times, thankfully.

    I just tried both of these attached files, and I'm still having the human models everywhere. I tried running with/without luclin models. repatching all from the launcher, deleting/reinstalling SoD and adding in the chr.txt files attached above.... I'm using an install from Titanium.

    The Titanium era install is no longer supported. You have to switch to the Steam install.
