Unused skins model id found findable ?

#1 Unread post by Arceos V » Wed Oct 17, 2018 4:47 pm

Hi there

I went to your site to look at the category "unavailable".
I was wondering, how did you know there were all those skins out there? Are they in the database? And if so, how can I get their model id?

It would be nice ...
Example of what I am looking for:

You might want to explore the database using WoW Model Viewer: https://wowmodelviewer.net/wordpress/?page_id=27

(Go to the beta releases, ignore the old releases at the top).

You can see other skins that may be missing, in there, for the most part.

Okay I will try !

Do you know if I can get the model ID for my morph in play or use it to create a new npc with WMV?

Getting model IDs can be complicated, as the same model file can be used for different IDs used in the game. I don't know a way of doing that without datamining. Or did you mean NPC IDs?

I would need the displayid to add it to the database I have to create a npc with this appearance.

There probably isn't one. I don't think this was ever assigned a display ID.

I just checked up and there was definitely no display ID ever created for any of the gem skins on the frostsaber model. The skins are in the model folder but they have never been used on it.

You can see this in WoW Model Viewer. If you go to the frostsaber model (creature->frostsabre) and select the model, you can see a list of skins in the middle of the bottom panel. The ones that are in capitals are from official display IDs. The lower case ones are just other skins in the folder with no official display IDs.
