Updated Ktera Mods 5/16/13

I decided to provide a new topic so people don't get confused about mods and which are the newest. So in this topic you will find the Elin and Castanic models updated to the current patch. If you use the older files you will not be able to see certain armors. At the same time I don't notice any difference in the other files for other classes for Ktera.

But I know these are the most popular in the first place no one wants an Elin with boyish boxers I like my Elin in cute panties. If de-censorship bothers you do not use this file. This will install to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\TERA  
by default if you changed the folder of your Tera install make sure you modify it to match or this will not work. Also back up the current files since each patch from NA with new armors will not properly patch into the Korean files this is a known problem and is part of the reason people have issues with patching. During new gear updates make sure to replace the Korean files temporarily so they patch correctly. I will try to update files when I get updates.

Tera Online Mods

Tera Online has gone overboard modifying the models in the game because of Censorship and this has been talked about on many different tera censorship articles and forum topics. I myself enjoy using the original models for armor of Elins because I recognize they are a fictional class in a mmorpg game and the original art was much better made then the censored art. You of course do not have to agree with me for this since that would be my opinion. If your interested in trying to mod your Tera Online files I have provided information below that explains how to modify different parts of the client and how to install them. I have also provided some installers which work for windows 64bit users.

If you find it difficult to add this patch yourself I have provided a installer version. Bunny Suit Fix

Custom Recolors:

Custom Recolor of Swimsuits
This replaces the current swimsuits to provide a cuter remodel of the swimsuit

Comes in all colors you can use the method of not replacing files by installing it into:

Its recommended that you backup files in-case something goes wrong or you want to go back to the original files in-case you do not want to keep these patches for some reason. But I have not seen any problems with the patches other then one small visual error with the Elin patch. Before character creation the Elin preview looks like the body is missing but this does not effect anything inside of the character creation or in game.

Another client-side change that was made was the modification of blood effects on the screen and also on the wall and floor in the game. Part of modifying this can be done by going to TERA\Client\S1Game\Config  and changing HITDECAL_INDEX=1  to  "HITDECAL_INDEX=2".

How to play Tera Online Free?

If you have not realized yet it is possible to play Tera Online free the method of doing this is quite simple compared to doing something that is illegal or cheating to try and scam your way into the game. To achieve your Tera Online for free first you need to buy the game. It does not matter if you buy it from a local store or buy Tera from the downloaded website. You just need to make sure the version of Tera Online that you buy comes with a free month's worth of game-play. 

To play Tera Online free you will be required to farm gold in game and buy what is called a Chrono Scroll in game. This can be accomplished a number of ways at lower levels you could farm dungeons for items to sell to make the money. Or at higher levels you can just kill monsters to get money as well keep in mind the amount of money given per monster is lower until you start hitting about level 50. If you actually level from 1 to 60 before your time runs out you would have enough gold from the quests to buy around 3 months of free game play.

If your buying Chrono Scrolls in game you would want to make sure that your getting a good deal buying them too expensive will cause the prices to continually increase as people believe others will buy one at inflated prices. Some times it's a good idea to buy one from the trade broker usually people looking for quick cash will sell them on trade broker to avoid the auction fees.

As long as you continue to buy more Chrono Scrolls your game play will continue to be totally free. Many people do this all the time since Tera Online is a subscription based game. You do not need a subscription to use a Chrono Scroll. And because it saves you money could could instead use the money on something better like a gaming headset like I did for playing with my guildies.

Are you that Tera Online gamer?

So you've logged into Tera Online for the first time and your playing it like a total noob. You do not use crystals, your gear is terrible you die to the most simple of normal monster fights. You struggle through the game. Or your level 60 and you never show up to a raid or dungeon prepared you do not know what the hell your doing in game people tell you that you suck. You que up for a battlegrounds you never wear proper pvp gear even when you have it the way you play your character is so bad you die every time you get in a fight. In the end you just completely suck at Tera Online.

If you fall under any of the above then chances are your guild hates you and your friends don't want to play with you and your own self esteem is low. I've found myself in this same situation in Tera Online mostly because when it comes to Tera the guide system's online are completely useless and trying to search the net to find good information or making friends that want to share their gaming secrets is nearly impossible. Chances are your at the point where your looking for an elite gamer guide. A gamer guide will make sure that you are playing Tera Online like a professional. Today i'll share a really valuable guide that I found which helped with my gaming it will be invaluable to you! You can pick up your copy by Clicking Here.

Do your friends and yourself a favor and learn to play like a professional and stop being the down syndrome case your friends run from.

Tera Online Private Servers

With Tera Online finally out many people wonder whether there are private servers seeing how Tera Online is a pay to play game. I actually did a good amount of research and found that there is some private server sources for Tera Online. But the quality of them is very poor. They are Russian and are written in the Java language which makes them horrible. But this seems to be the tread for all mmorpg's now a days.

Finding private servers of any kind can be a real challenge because of what is required to run it. And anyone looking to start a Tera Online private server should also be prepared for the large amount of money they will have to use to get it up and running. Since the source's are not in English you would first need to find someone to help you translate it so you knew what would have to be done to set it up.

After you get the language out of the way the next challenge would be whether programming would have to be done. Normally Tera Online developers have there own team so private server owners would need there own team of people who are qualified to work on it and know what they are doing so there are no problems. This can also be expensive since people usually will not work for free.

The next big part of running a Tera Online private server is trying to get hosting which will be high enough quality for you to be able to host it for the amount of people that you plan to have. And you also will need to figure out what you can make money from in the server to keep it running and make it worth it for others to want to play on it. They won't want to play it when they could play the better version from the Tera Online server.

After all the other aspects are done then you would need to promote your server. Tera Online itself has bad advertising not many know how good the game is. So trying to compete with Tera Online will be really hard.
Trying to open any private server requires far more dedication then most people have this is why many people realize later down the road that running a server is not for them.
