Hiya everyone, first post here I think...been lurking on the forum for sometime now but thats not why Im posting this question here on SMN forum.

I have seen sometime before on another thread which I can't remember anymore about a dat file change for Garuda and Shiva summons which made them look more glowing and in higher defenition then before. So here is the question: Does anyone know where one could find such dat files? Or about a site with diffrent dat files to change the look a little for the avatars?

Just wanted to ask this out here since there is a high chance someone on this forum knows something about this. Always good to ask while looking myself. Any help would be great^^

Yeah I just did thank you very much^^ I found one for Shiva which is very nice. But I didn't see any Garuda which was my taste. Any other sites one could look at?

I think they cover the most and in best order. There are alternative places but their just boards where you post threads so you can't search very well on them. (And they seem to focus more on nudity than other things)

I also think glowing is hard coded so you can't get any other effect really. (The fairy spirit pack has some special graphic effects though, really good looking. Earth having leafs or something flowing out etc)

I've enjoyed Kamui's reskin of the celestial avatars. His can be found on FFXIdats.

http://ffxidats.com/page.php?al=alias7323

is his Garuda.

They look a lot better in game than they do on the photos. The colors are much more vibrant and the glows are better.

I've yet to find a decent Diabolos or Fenrir skin, and Carbuncle... is fine the way he is, IMHO. :P

I'm using Bahamut from FFX skin on Diabolos and it looks great. Sure it isn't diabolos, but he was never a favorite to me.

Fenrir is simply a recolor with more pink in it. Looks better somehow.

As for carbuncle, there are no good ones for that. Been thinking of tossing in Prishe but not sure I want to see her bellybutton each BP. (Would work better to replace a spirit, but it is rare that you keep those out. Not to mention the fairy spirit set is incredibly good looking)

Decided to try out Kamui's Fen and Carb in game.

Carbuncle looked iffy on the page, but in game, it really does look good. It isn't as green, but it's not a very strong white either, I'll have to get around to taking screens of all of Kamui's skins.

His/her Fenrir however... while it does help with the color factor on fenrir, it has no eyes, which really just bugs me, I'm tempted to use the pink and black fenrir XD

Diabolos I decided to try to find the FF8 Diabolos skin that's on FFXIdats, and even though the link to download it is semi broke, it's just a hyperlink error, and after searching a bit, realizing the website subdomains, etc, you can figure out that downloads/ is missing after blog/ :P

So yea, Mellowy, I'd suggest trying out Kamui's carby, it looks a lot better in game than it did on the pics.

My problem is actually more that I have 2 Shiva's I want to use, but only 1 summon! Almost tempting to put one of them on carby or something just to get both models into the game.

Not to mention I have an ice fairy that is cool too, and they all use shiva as base so 3 good models that only fit well on one dat swap, sigh.

I like the pic, but in game, I find it looks WAY unrealistic. Seriously XD

I like Kamui's better.

I recently swapped out the "Icy Shiva" dat (not made by Kamui) for Shiva from FFX (the one without the cape). I also swapped in Kamui's Carby and Fenrir... so far permanent :P

dunno.. looks pretty nice to me, no clue what you mean by unrealistic in a fantasy game, but to each their own

Not to necrobump or anything, but I'm looking for these dats, but cannot find them anywhere. This came up on Google, so I might as well give it a shot.

Lol. also i'm pretty sure ffxidats.com no longer exsists which is why they'd be hard to find.
