My first model mod in GTAV and my first public GTAV mod. I decided to port the “Demonlord Halberd” from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The mod will replace the hatchet melee weapon. Feedback is always welcome.
1. Make a backup of any file you modify or replace.
2. Download this mod
3. Install the latest Script Hook, ASI Loader and OpenIV
4. Run OpenIV and navigate to GTAV > update > x64 > dlcpacks > patchday3ng > dlc.rpf > x64 > models > cdimages > weapons.rpf
5. Switch to “Edit mode”
6. Replace w_me_hatchet.ytd, w_me_hatchet+hi.ytd and w_me_hatchet.ydr with the files from the downloaded package
Of course this mod is compatible with any other installation method you prefer (update.rpf addon, mod-folder etc).
Known bugs and limitations
No blood textures; will be added once I figure out how to do this
No bump or specular maps, since the source model doesn’t provide any
I was able to pull this off thanks to the model conversion guide by MrVicho13. Thanks for your effort!
Enjoy and feel free to request any MH4U weapon mods you’d like to see! Maybe there are some fellow hunters around. I’d love to do a multi-pack.
