To get the best experience, combine this mod with Auto Hide Weapons for Cloaks, Accessory Slot Mod and Cheap dyes everywhere.

To use a dye, make sure to use it in the inventory and then apply it to the item you want. Drag and drop won't work because neither pocket slots nor accessory slots are compatible with this feature.

You can switch between hood-up and hood-down by pressing the keybind (see the optional step in installation section), or through the inventory menu. In the second case you just have to go in your inventory, select the slot with the equipped item, and press X on your keyboard or X on your Xbox controller (square on dualshock).

Huge thanks to Aeltoth, menschfeind13 and eNoodles for the scripts. The 3 first models I made are based on OakenSh's Ciri - Alternative look hood that I have adapted to Geralt and heavily edited. Huge thanks to Ding for teaching me redcloth making.

Thanks to edvin76, you can now use the hood switching feature for you own mod as long as Hoods is installed on your game! To do that, your item must have the tag "ToggleHood" and you must respect this naming convention:

  • your hood-up model can be anything: "Your Item Name"
  • your hood-down model must be identical + "Lowered" at the end: "Your Item Name Lowered" It can be used for any type of items like helmets with visor, or anything you want basically.
