I look forward to what the devs come up with to accompany traits and what homebrew props modders can come up with. Imagine Emperor Heinrich wearing sackcloth (trait: penitent, for those humbling themselves to have excommunication removed) at Canossa. The crusader trait should give your character a white tabard with a red cross.

Another more general suggestion for the devs would be to include a sort of mannequin image so that it will be easy to size any objects we modders create on our own without having to load up the game, see that the ducal hat I just made is too big or covers the eyes then open my editing programs again and adjust things, save changes, then open CK2 again, rinse and repeat. I am really excited about the possibilities. You guys rock.

This seems great!!!! BUT! I somehow understood this guide (I think) But I can't find out where to edit it in, to change a specefic character (Made myself) or did I just miss that??? This is what I have done
I've made my own dynasty. I don't think the appereancess is going to be put un that folder
and this is how I made my character, but this is all I've done, and I can't figure out where to edit in things so I can have him look the way I want him to (well, at least more similar to what I want)

I saw that one a little earlier, but with what stands in this guide and the one at that page just didn't make any real sence to me, and I just got confused and mindfucked, possibly I didn't understand or can't remember what he said in the guide, but when I try to read it once again I'm still mindfucked D:
