Hello everybody, I'm finally back with a new mod! this is a thing that should've been in Vanilla sm4sh because of how similar marth and lucina are.
Alright, so what does this mod do and what is it used for? This mod makes Marth and Lucina share the same slot (in this case it's marths slot) it changes lucinas hitboxes to match her original characters hitboxes, it changes her size, making her the same size as she originally was, it adds in her own battle portraits, stock icons, nameplate, announcer call and punchout text.
Application This mod can be used for creating a whole new character to replace lucinas original slot without actually losing lucina. We are going to be doing this in Brawl U to bring back another character in place of lucinas slot. this can also be used for having a decloned lucina in lucinas original slot. it all depends on your creativity
If you do want to put this in your own private modpack, there are a few files you need to change so nothing gets replaced, mainly ui_character_db, you have to change these values in order for everything to work, along with making marth have 16 slots
This will give lucina her nameplate and her own text in punchout, results screen and under the battle portrait.
You will also have to change these values in marths entry in ui_sound_call_voice_db This will give lucina her own announcer call when you select her on the css, unfortunately it doesn't work on the results screen.
!! Reminder, these are only if you have those files edited !!
there are also a few issues with mta on the results screen and their hands are a bit weird in the clapping animation, I'm gonna be looking into fixing them though (help is greatly appreciated) If you want to use it in a public modpack, ask for permission first or I'm gonna ask you to remove it
I really hope all of you can make good use of this and I hope to see more custom characters over lucina with this! Enjoy!
Ok I have a few ideas that need to be proven wrong
-Is it actually possible to put doc with Mario? Not asking you to do it, just curious -How does the rigging work? I know you can make lucina same height as marth, but does that mean that you can shrink young link and pichu to fit link and pikachu? -Can you have multiple clones of the same character (like putting marth, lucina and the Lyn for example) in the same slot -If you use mizumi's custom slot, can you have lucina's slot, math's and the a third one you can edit?
This is too confusing, but may change the sm4sh modding, so I thought it was worth mentioning
Just one question. If you use this method with the wolf and fox mod and then separate them with the sonicbrawler (mizumi) method, can you have both on separate slots? Sorry if I sound dumb, but I know nothing about modding and I'm not sure if this is actually possible
Wait so lemme get this straight. On Marth's slot, selecting the new "Lucina" slots just allows Lucina to be played? Not many changes from the original Lucina? Like, she still has the balanced sword damage?
This is awesome. I really wish they would've done this in the base game.
I am curious, though: 1. Did this work primarily because Marth and Lucina are already fairly similar to begin with? If not, then... 2. Would it be possible to to have any two characters share a slot on the CSS? If so, then... 3. Would there be problems in applying this to Little Mac, seeing as he already has 16 costumes?
