It doesn't really seem to clearly state this anywhere, but if I'm wrong please guide me to the answer!
With Sigma would it be possible to exchange the art and models with full 3D HD ones instead? basically I'm wondering if this will allow a complete graphical overhaul of the game? i think that's one of the biggest downsides to median in general is outdated graphics and i like to dream
thanks for any info
I seriously doubt that. It would require the whole engine to be re-written. And in that case you could just create a new game with a new engine. That would be less time-consuming.
But even if that was to be implemented, there'd probably nobody in the world who'd like to do something as extravagant as completely remodeling the whole game. As of now, there's one method to create the required templates. There are tools and guides for that on frozen keep. I once read on frozen keep, that there are less than 100 people in the whole world who are capable of using those tools to create new templates for diablo 2. One of them is this guy: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAfQko ... vYWHWR8GWw
But he does this only to get a profit from the already poor mod-makers, who mod as their hobby. If you're willing to pay him, sure we can get many new models. But just look at the time between his uploads. It'll take too much time to completely remodel everything.
But, I can be wrong of course, so don't take my words for granted.
