    [MOD TOOL REQUEST]:
    9/5/2017 UPDATE: Our [NLPP MULTI-TOOlS] have now been materialized
    but unfortunately are still missing a few basic functions to be fully functioning,
    we decided to publish the multi-tools in their current state and ask for people
    with the right knowledge to take a look and see if they can commit &
    contribute the coding required for the missing functions, thank you:
    LIST OF [KNOWN ISSUES] FOR [NLPP MULTI-TOOLS]:

    Converting a png to bclim:
    No support for ETC (ETC1/ETC1A...) image compression,
    files can not be converted back to bclim.

    Repacking a package:
    The ‘packer’ currently can not repack packages with smes files.
    If you need more info or would like to help contact Skype:LovePlusProject.

    Gambia, The
    The HD additions sound really great, the biggest problem might be tho, that the OLD 3DS might be too weak to handle the advanced graphics,
    (I already notice small lags in the normal game, didnt bother to see if there is an update).

    So most of these Effects would likely only run suitable on a NEW 3DS with max speed.

    Other than that, i would love to see even new Character models for Rinko, Manaka and Nene, kinda like those three girls from "Oshiete~ Gyalko-san!"

    some of these pictures are actual screen captures from the game, it might just be as "light" to the game processing as exporting the 3D skin picture files, altering them to gain more depth and injecting them back in again..or finding an entry to the Cel-Shading properties file and "pinning" one of the already existing game shades that are pictured there to perhaps "follow" the 3D models at all times..

    Interesting if this is just the normal models, together with the cel-shading effects from the camera added to them.
    That way even my old 3DS XL might have a chance to use these mods :wink:

    I would love to mess around with the models tho, is there any kind of documention available yet on how to modify or extracting them?

    gdkchan has provided us with an NEWLOVEPLUS UNPACKER, you can successfully unpack everything including the 3D models and view them in Ohana3DS, we just have to perhaps find a method to inject some edited '.texi' textures back in the 3D models and see how they show up in the game..

    I try to have a look at this stuff one of these days, and see how much I can mess around with this Game.

    I went through the img.bin files of NLP+ today and it's quite odd but there are complete Manaka and Nene 3D models from the 2009 game that are located within the img.bin files for some reason, you can check out a comparison here to see how very different they are:
    COMPARISON BETWEEN GAME AND EXTRACTED MODEL

    Anyway, so far from what I can tell the 2012/2014 3D models are separated in pieces and in different folders, Manaka's start from folder 00235, Nene's from 00895 and Rinko's from 01511...
    Rinko's face
    The 3D Model file extensions we get with the NLPUNPACKER are:
    Also found the shader files as well and I've uploaded them so people can have a look, they are .shbin files associated with 'Vertex Shaders'.. Here is a shader_aemstro_stdout of the files.

    this is a nice example of results that could be achieved:

    Here's are some [NLP+] Eye_Templates for the NEW girls, you can also alter their 'eye bubble' textures but that might require a bit more research understanding how their eye *.mot/animation works... Anyone interested can now create custom eye designs or anime contact Lenses for them using these templates, here are a few examples of basic color 'Contact_Lenses' MODs:
    NEW_CONTACT_LENSES

    Hope with this community NLP+ will get a 'revamped' feel. Hope this will be finished even if it takes eternity!
    I can't really help with anything since I'm a noob at programming and/or language, b-but I'll try to help however I can! \(>A<\)

    now that we have a better understanding of the files that exist inside the game I created A LIST OF MOD TOOLS THAT ARE REQUIRED(OUTDATED) so any tool developer that would like to help can perhaps have a guidance of what is needed to make the creation of MODs for this game a future possibility..

    Yep, as you can read on the list of requests by fan an uncensored MOD patch is part of the plans, all the file formats, 3D Model files and textures have been found and singled out we just need help to build the right tools to make these MOD patches a possibility.

    EDIT:
    Patch 1 is out now!, grab it while its hot!
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    Hey Fellas!,
    After some time messing with the LovePlus+ Files, I have some mods ready that I gonna release tommorow or so.

    What to expect:

    "Music Mods"
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    "Partial English Translation" (Atleast more than the last patch offers :D / needs NTR tho)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    "Background Mods" (gonna polish some of those muddy colours up a bit)
    (Warning Fullsize Images in Spoiler)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    And once I figure them out, I will start getting my hands dirty with some basic model editing!

    On a side note, this "english patch" is mostly just transliterated and NOT always accurate.
    Think of this as a means of enjoying the game, till the real translation team pushes a better patch out.

    Nice, Keep the creativity flowing guys!^__^

    oh, I located the banned 'towel body' within the 'NEW' 3D files:
    '3D MODEL : Towel body'
    The quite vanilla bath & shower scenes were heavily censored for some odd reason in the 3DS games(only sound/no visual) along with them coming out of the shower wrapped in a towel so nobody has seen them appear dressed in this since the NDS game, I wonder what would happen if we were to replace the 'School Uniform' , the 'PJs' or some other perhaps more identically shaped body files with these, hmm... lol.

    Edited the first post with all the material, tool links and instructions on how to go about when unpacking, editing and patching most of the targeted game files.

    Just braindumped the eShop only 'NEWラブプラスDEMO' & 'ラブプラスTOOLS' from my Japanese device and most of their file structure are quite similar/almost identical to the games so the 'UNPACKER' worked successfully for both their img.bin files... The 'TOOLS' are used to transfer your save file between the 'NEW' games and to read AR codes for live photography and the 'DEMO' holds extra code that allowed for a wider view and a 'bad response' when you would behave inappropriately that was deemed too controversial and seems to have been removed from the actual game while the wider view was minimized. That means that if we find, figure out and integrate/replace the correct files we could import some of these actions back into the game:
    EXAMPLE OF BAD BEHAVIOR RESPONSE IN 'NEWラブプラスDEMO'

    Also an interesting discovery, going through the 2012 and 2014 games' img.bin files I came across a lot of unused 'NEW' 3D model prototypes that are vastly different from the ones that finally made it into the game and could also be used for 3D model hybridizing or swapping experimentation. Here are a few samples of what they look like:
    'NEW' 3D MODEL PROTOTYPES

    After implementing this fix 「NEWラブプラス+」/「NEWLOVEPLUS+」 now runs with 3DS emulator CITRA, at the moment the game will only run with this unofficial build of CITRA, download the official version from the website and replace the original CITRA files. (This disclaimer will be deleted once the fix code will be implemented into the official CITRA release.) Member internetakias has also asked for the game's screen orientation to be added as a future option.
