A mod/tool to simplify process of item display placement for item/character developers.

General usage

Before start

You need to have an item display (default or character-specific), which you will edit and replace its values in code when you have done.

Enter editing scene

First of all, you need to enter special scene where everything happens. This can be done by pressing F2 (You need to be in the main menu).

Pick a model

You can search for a model by localized name, body object name or model object name. By default only models that are visible in logbook are included in list, but you can include everything from BodyCatalog by toggle Inlude all bodies from BodyCatalog.

Select DisplayRuleGroup to work with

You can search for an item/equipment by name.

Each item display can be enabled/disabled by clicking on corresponding checkbox. Only one equipment display can be enabled at a time, so if you enable new equipment old one will be disabled.

Click on a gear to start/end item display placement (All changes will be lost when you disable item display, so be careful with that).

  • Enable all - enable all item displays for current model (except equipment)
  • Disable all - enable all item displays for current model (inluding equipment)

Select ItemDisplayRule

Click on a row with item display prefab name to start edit it.

Edit ItemDisplayRule

You can type in values in corresponding fields to see how item display will look on a character.

Or you can use Unity-like item editing on the scene:



White circle will rotate object around to camera view axis.


Gray cube in center will scale all axes simultaneously.

Copy values

When you placed your item where you want you can copy values for that position by clicking Copy IDR values button to paste these values in your code.

You can change copy format by clicking on the gear icon next to Copy IDR values

Available formats

  • Block

Copied values will look something like that:

childName = "Head",
localPos = new Vector3(-0.0007F, 0.1699F, 0.028F),
localAngles = new Vector3(332.5399F, 359.8748F, 0.0883F),
localScale = new Vector3(0.7228F, 0.7228F, 0.7228F)
  • Inline

Copied values will look something like that:

"Head", new Vector3(-0.0007F, 0.1699F, 0.028F), new Vector3(332.5399F, 359.8748F, 0.0883F), new Vector3(0.7228F, 0.7228F, 0.7228F)
  • ForParsing

Copied values will look something like that:

  • Custom

You can make your own format by using placeholders to specify where values should be placed.
