Octolings - A Mod for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Updates

Release 1.8 1mo
  • Amendment Updated the Effect & UI files for the slot-specific Ink Coloring for proper compatibility with Smash's Sora Update.
Yeah, this is just an update for the ink coloring files. The main Octoling models, UI, voices, & weapon edits are all the same as when the mod was initially released. If you already choose not to use the included Ink Color files, you don't need to redownload this mod.
NOTE: THIS MOD IS ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH ARCROPOLIS 2.0.0 OR NEWER. IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ULTIMATE MOD MANAGER NOR EARLIER VERSIONS OF ARCROPOLIS.
THIS MOD REPLACES THE 5TH & 8TH INKLING SLOTS (c04 & c07.) THIS MOD WILL NOT WORK IF MOVED TO OTHER SLOTS.
Additionally, this mod is 100% Wi-fi safe. I also intend to provide resources to use for custom Smash Octoling mods at a later date, likely around the same time I add the other 6 alts I have planned for the mod. Please do NOT make any of your own edits to this mod until I provide the proper resources for it.

Well over 2 years in the making, the advent of full file unsharing with ARCropolis 2.0.0 Beta 5 has allowed me to release this long awaited mod without any compromises!

Currently, this mod changes the following things:

  • Octoling Female & Male models over 2 Inkling skins. These models have been newly made for Smash Ultimate to fit its art style while also maintaining consistency with Smash's Inkling models.
  • The specific slots I chose aren't used much by other skin mods, & also happen to be the same ones used in the Octoling spirit battles.
  • Due to Inklings having slot-specific texture filenames, this mod won't work over other slots until file addition is possible.
  • This mod also includes the Octolings' proper voices, Octopus forms in place of the Squid forms, modified weapon designs, & pre-made files for the ink effect/ui coloring. The ink effect/ui colors are in a separate mod folder so that they can easily be disabled/removed if needed (especially if an update to the game gets released that alters the files they use.)
  • The usual UI edits my mods include. The renders I used for this mod can be seen here.

At a later time, preferably after full file addition becomes possible, I plan to update this mod with the following features: 
  • 6 additional alts, each with their own outfits, ink colors, & skin/eye colors. This image shows my current plan for those alts.
  • Various tweaks/improvements to the models' various details, including reworked swing bones for the hair on both genders.
  • Modified results animations based on the ones the Octolings use in Splatoon 2 (and maybe an entry animation based on the way the Octo Expansion's levels begin.)
  • The ability to use the models + recolors on any of Inklings' color slots (including extra slots.)
  • Resources to make your own Smash Ultimate styled Octoling outfit/color sets (Please do not attempt to make your own edits of this mod until I release those resources.)

If you notice any issues that weren't already mentioned in this description (or in the mod's README.txt file,) feel free to let me know. And make sure to provide as much information as possible (since I can't really fix a problem if I don't truly know what's causing the problem.) 

Finally, I don't do mod requests. I prefer making mods based on my own personal interests, so please do not ask me to make any specific model imports for you.

  • This is so cool! I'd love to see this done with the full echo treatment with a separate slot. Thank you for the good work!

    Please update this mod for 13.0.
    Reporting that the Octoling UI effect layout.arc file removes Sora's Magic UI.
    Thank you!

  • The only problems is that it still has “inkling” written when you pick it I know you can’t mod the voice to say octoling so I’m fine with that

  • Had to make an account just to say I love this mod and I'm SO excited to see it move forward. Last time I was here it was still impossible, but now it gives me hope for one day adding Octolings as a full echo fighter with their own unique animations and maybe adjusted stats to match their weapons (like they probably would've been if Ultimate came out later and took anything from Splatoon 2). For now, this is a huge leap forward and the models look absolutely amazing. Can't wait to try them out!

  • I have other Inkling mods activated, is it normal for the octoling mod to overlap them? They end up replacing Inkling's sounds with the octoling's sounds as well as the squid model.
