Installing Custom Content This post will be divided into two sections, one section will detail the installation of custom patches, the second section will be reserved as a guide for installing Add-Ons. Contents: Installing patches Installing addons Note: Installing Custom Patches and Add-Ons runs the risk of damaging your client or causing you to crash. If you encounter a problematic patch or Add-On, get in touch with the author of the patch/add-on. Installing Patches Recommended Software: 7-zip Installing patches isn't overly difficult; but it can be a bit confusing on where to extract patch folders/files to. When downloading patches, be sure to look out for any readme .text files or install instructions on the patch download page for any special instructions laid out by the author. Step 1. Once you have downloaded a patch from the internet, navigate to the directory on your computer where it got downloaded to. Note: This is most commonly your downloads directory, located in Windows Explorer's Quick Access menu as shown below: Step 2. Once in your downloads directory, locate the downloaded file. This file could have any of the following file extensions: .zip, .rar, .7z, as displayed below: Example Patch Download Location Step 3. Right click on the downloaded file and in the context menu that appears, select: Open, or if you have 7zip installed, 7-zip->Open archive. Context menu for opening compressed archives. Step 4. Once you've clicked open or open with 7-zip you should find yourself inside the compressed archive, Take note of what folders are present within the archive. Left: Opening the .zip file within Windows Explorer. Right: Opening the .zip file with 7-zip. Within the opened archive should be folders with any of the following names: Character, Creature, Item, World, Spell, TILESET, dungeon, etc. If there is only one folder present within the archive and it does NOT match any of the folder names mentioned earlier, go into it and you should find the patch related folders there. Step 5. Keeping the archive open, open a new instance windows explorer, and navigate to where your EpsilonWoW directory is. e.g: C:\Games\EpsilonWoW, E:\Games\EpsilonWoW. Example Epsilon Directory Step 6. Position your EpsilonWoW directory, and the .zip or .rar archive window side-by-side, and highlight all the folders in the patch archive, Step 7. Drag the highlighted folders by holding down the left mouse button and moving the mouse across to your Epsilon directory. Once your mouse is within your EpsilonWoW directory, let go of the left mouse button. Note: Alternatively, with the folders highlighted, you can right click any of the highlighted folders->click copy, and paste into your root Epsilon directory as you would any other file. The folders will be copied to your Epsilon directory. When done, your Epsilon directory should contain patch folders such as: character, creature, item, world, tilesets, dungeon, sound etc. Example of a patched Epsilon directory. That's it, you can now launch your newly patched game.
We're all very aware how broken apart most, if not all, Kul Tiran objects are. A similar situation to some Zandalari-based objects. I wouldn't know, I haven't touched them (yet). Blizzard has taken a different step when it comes to the construction of buildings when BfA came around. As shown by the blank models littering the list of Kul Tiras objects, they have taken the route of: Lego Building. Basically scrapping the already made models. I have no idea what to even call it, bare with me. Essentially, they make a fuckton of smaller objects, maybe a few bigger ones (WMOs), and put them together. This makes almost every Kul Tiran building that exists unique. So here's a list of examples with a list of objects they use! Go wild! Impress others! Wow! May look smaller due to it being resized on retail.
