Baldur’s Gate 3 Ultimate Transmog Mod Allows Players to Customize Armor Appearance
Baldur’s Gate 3 is full of gorgeous armor sets, and it can be difficult to choose a favorite. Perhaps even tougher is having to come to terms with the fact that your most fashionable set of boots or gloves just don’t offer a good enough bonus to keep wearing them any more. Fortunately, there’s now a solution, in the form of a cosmetic armor mod that allows you to apply the look of any gear piece to another without overwriting its stats.
The Ultimate Transmog Mod
The Baldur’s Gate 3 Ultimate Transmog mod, created by ‘Wayden,’ takes its name from ‘transmogrify’ – a term commonly known among gaming circles for its use in Blizzard games such as World of Warcraft. Transmogrify refers to applying the appearance of one item to another while retaining the latter’s stats. With this mod, players can now take their favorite looks in the RPG game and apply them to their current gear, fully compatible with the most recent Baldur’s Gate 3 patch 3.
Unleash Your Fashionable Side
Baldur’s Gate 3 does offer one way to adjust your look in-game without affecting your stats – you can toggle on your ‘camp outfit’ and your regular armor still works. However, this only gives you two slots to work with, compared to the full set of armor that you wear normally. With the Ultimate Transmog mod, you can apply the look of any helmet, armor, boots, gloves, or cloak to another, meaning you can use the best Baldur’s Gate 3 builds and look good doing it.
How It Works
The process is relatively straightforward and uses an item called ‘The Appearance Extractor’ to do its dirty work. Players simply combine it with the item they want to use the appearance of, which creates an ‘appearance’ item. This item can then be combined with the item they want to apply the appearance to. Since it creates a new item, the original item that the appearance was extracted from is not lost, allowing players to use it again later.
If players already have an appearance applied and want to replace it, they’ll need to extract the old one first before applying the new look. Wayden, the mod’s creator, notes that “The mod is still in development, so some appearances could be missing, but most of them should be here.” They also mention considering adding support for weapons, shields, amulets, rings, and even camp equipment.
Where to Find the Mod
You can find the mod, along with full installation instructions including step-by-step image guidance, here. Unfortunately, the mod is not compatible with the popular ‘Basket full of Equipment’ mod, which adds extra armor types. The Basket mod multiplies the number of armors in the game to over 400,000, exceeding the game’s realistic handling capabilities.
Whether you’ve finished all the best Baldur’s Gate 3 quests or not, the Ultimate Transmog mod offers players the ability to customize their armor appearance without sacrificing stats. This exciting addition to the game allows players to express their fashion sense while maintaining optimal gameplay performance. With the mod’s continued development and potential expansion to include more equipment types, players can look forward to even greater customization options in the future.
