    noun; a particular place or position.
    I'm wondering if it's possible to make a mod-patch that changes several assets in-game to reflect the original 1.0 release of Ocarina of Time for the N64 in terms of removng censorship or otherwise misc changes from later revisions like:
    • The Gerudo symbols on blocks, switches, Mirror Shield and even in Dampé's Grave being changed to the Gerudo pirate symbol from Majora's Mask
    • The chanting in the Fire Temple which was removed in the 1.2 revision (apparently the actual version with said chanting was updated and left inside the game's coding, so that's a bonus)
    • Ganondorf's blood being colored green in later revisions instead of the original red blood
    • Princess Ruto's design change in this very remake to give a "fin-bra" look
    • The infamous "Tetraforce" design on the Hylian Shield which was permanently changed after OOT to remove the controversial fourth piece It turns out that this is still in effect on OOT:3D
    • Skull Kids designs changing to wooden skin and beaks in place of the original black skin and lips in OOT:3D
    ...and probably a few other things that have been missed. To be clear this wouldn't be asking for any significant change to the gameplay or adding in bugs from older revisions (because not only would that be a nightmare to code it's not really the point of this), just purely changes that were made simply because of controversial means.

    To be honest I was sure that at this time at least some die-hard Zelda fanboy or some "restoration" modder would've made something like this by now but to my surprise, there doesn't seem to be any mod out there of the sort. I don't imagine that to a modder this would be quite hard since it's mostly just texture changes and even the chanting music is already updated in the game itself, it's just not being used. (Not that I myself am a 3DS modder so don't take that statement too seriously if it's far from the truth.)

    I'm all in for the first 3 points, the rest I can live without.
    I actually like Ruto's new bra design, now I can actually tell it is a girl :lol:

    You mean you couldn't tell she's a girl already? :huh: They put the fin-bra in to cover up her suggestive design and she's called "Princess" Ruto.

    Calling it uncensored would be accurate to what your asking for. It was changed in the first place due to controversial issues therefore it was censored.

    Like this recent release of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus on steam. There is an Uncensored mod to remove the light effects and sparkles, then there is a nude mod to add additional textures for people's viewing pleasure.

    This shows a good representation of what the "tetraforce" is really, as it shows a 4th triforce piece at the base of the triangle, speculating of its existence. The other shields show how it was changed in later iterations of the Zelda games. It would be a nice addition if it was possible to change the model. (Idk if it is)

    So it turns out that the Tetraforce design on the Hylian Shield is still there for OOT:3D. Only just been playing through the game again and I find that out. Whoops. :P

    Still, those other points are as valid as before.

    Well yeah, it is a Princess, but to me the design from the N64 model seemed really androgynous, even with the slight bumps in her chest haha.
    In 3D, they did gave her a more feminine design, which to me is greatly appreciated.

    In any way, if we really want this I'd suggest to get a decrypted copy of the latest OoT 3D, and check the textures to begin with so that we can change the Mirror Shield, crates and flags to the original moon with star design, the sound for the Fire Temple comes after that. :P

    Honestly though, you'd think there would be more confusion in Shiek's gender than Ruto and she isn't even mentioned to be male or female for the duration of the disguise. At the very least, her redesign is a bit welcome here.:P

    I'm not sure if the textures for those switches, crates and shield (and Dampé's Grave) are even present in the game, but I do know that the Fire Temple 1.0 music is and has been updated. It's probably inevitable that we'd have to mock up our own textures for some of them, if not all.

    The textures are an easy one, we just need to find the files for those particular assets and edit them to remove the odd diamod-like shape and put in the Moon+Star symbol, as for the music, if it is indeed in the game already, them maybe overwriting the official Fire Temple song with the 1.0 song might do it. It would be like FireTemple.bcwav (new), FireTemple10.bcwav (old 1.0).

    Copy-paste FireTemple10.bcwav to FireTemple.bcwav, replacing/overwritting it.

    Just got around to giving the Skull Kid his Skull Mask and it hit me; in OOT:3D they've changed the skin of Skull Kids to a wooden texture in place of the black skin. Also, the lips were replaced with beaks. I'll add this to the points above.

    Umm... Has anyone made any advance with this? I would be just happy with the original fire temple music honestly, which it seems it's already on the files. I am bothered with Ganandorf's green blood, but I would be just happy with the music.
