    Ever been bothered by the character sliders in the game reaching their max too early? Then this is for you.
    This a simple tool that lets you go beyond (or below) the regular slider limits in Blade & Soul, allowing you to truly fully customize your character. Supports all character sliders in the game.

    Proof below with the breast slider - max limit increased (1.0 (20) -> 2.0 (40))

    Download & Instructions
    Thanks to @tinker we now have access to an easy-to-use tool to modify the game's slider limits. v0.2 automatically detects the game too, meaning you no longer need to manually change that value every time the game is patched.

    Download
    BnS Slider Tool v0.2 >> [click me]

    Instructions

    Source: Blade & Soul Slider Mod - (Permanently) Increased Slider Limits

    Slider Tool vs. Manual xml.dat editing
    The BnS slider tool uses a memory/.dll injection to change (live update) the game's memory. This means that it may be flagged a hack by GameGuard at some point in the future. As of now, however, (Nov 2016) no one has to our knowledge been banned for using it.

    If you want to play it 100% safe regardless you can instead use the method we previously used ourselves: manually editing game's xml.dat file. This file, found within the \BnS\contents\Local\NCWEST\data folder, contains another file named characterdefvaluedata.xml, which contains the slider limits. With the help of the bnsdat tool you can extract this file, edit the slider values, and then recompile it back into the archive.

    For instructions see our guide on xml.dat editing here:
    [Guide] Blade & Soul: Increased Sliders & xml.dat modding | Undertow.


    Project History

    The quest for bigger breasts started when @aakamrua posted a preliminary method on how to go beyond the slider limits in the game using CE. The problem with this was that every time you swapped costumes, went into another area or did anything at all these values were reset, resulting in a complicated and lengthy if not slightly inconvenient process.

    Months later someone released a tool named bnsdat which allowed one to (de)compile the files with .dat and .bin extensions in the Blade & Soul folder, where all the modifiable data is stored. At this point I swooped in, made the 1+1, and, using bnsdat, found out which file contains the slider limits and how to edit it. Tinker and several other users then helped us in finding out exactly what value affected what body part, and the above guide was made.

    Yet later Tinker made a standalone tool for live updating the game's slider limits, which you (probably) downloaded above.

    Tips
    • Different values may look great or horrible depending on your race and the costume you are wearing. Some races/costumes simply have better polygon counts than others, and there is nothing we can do about this. Generally there are only so many increments you can do on something before it looks like crap.
    • Changes are only visible to you (client-side), but may also affect other characters on your screen.
    • It is advised to not use the in-game PrtScrn screenshot function as NC can track modded clients through that. Instead use a tool like Fraps or something.
    • Don't post screenshots of (obviously) modded content on the official forums or sites, or mentioning such content in places frequented by the NCSoft staff (e.g. BnS official forum, dojo, reddit) The idea is that the staff -generally- doesn't care about such "harmless" hacks, but if prompted with it directly they are obliged to take action.
    • Works really well with the [One-Click Costume Replacer] so I can definitely recommend that.

    Use steam instead if u have it. Use "add non-steam game", found client.exe that run Blade and Soul.

    Then add the following to launch option

    Code:
    /LaunchByLauncher /SessKey:"" /MacAddr:"" /UserNick:"" /CompanyID:"0" /ChannelGroupIndex:"-1" /ServerAddr:" " /StartGameID:"BNS" /RepositorySub:" " /GamePath:"" /LoginMode 2 -lang:English -region:1
    
    -region:1 is EU -region:0 is NA

    After you relaunch steam in admin, you can use steam overlay and bypass the launcher.

    You can make them as big as you want to, really. It's why I wrote that guide in the first place. Maybe above a certain value it's bound to cause client crashes. Don't know. Tested up to 6.0 myself and never had any issues.

    The reason why I went with 3.0 in the download file is because I found it to be the 'upper limit' of what still passes in terms of most costumes looking ok/decent. Beyond that point things go to crap real fast as you will start to see things like costumes not scaling properly, torpedo boobs and/or the boobs looking a bit too over-pixelated. See the pic below as example.

    But then again, this varies depending on the race and costume. Some just scale better than others.

    Can this be used to shrink them below the default minimums? I like flat girls and it is a real shame that even the smallest size boobs the game offers are still way too large.

    It definitely should be able to shrink them, although I don't think it'll be perfect. You'll have to mess around with the numbers.

    I had no joy trying to do it the manual way, where I could input the whatever size I wanted, but the part quoted above with the already edited version of the xml.dat download worked fine, but the breasts are too big for my liking, the middle option in the pictures above is about where I'd want them. could anyone please post a pre-edited xml.dat with a different size?

    @Manning
    The value I used for the middle screenshots is attached below.
    Put the .xml in your xml.dat.files\engine folder (yes to overwrite) and then re-compile using the bnsdat tool.

    It comes down to changing just a few lines in a 3kb file so re-upping the entire 44mb file is a bit redundant in my opinion.
    I have updated/clarified the editing guide to the best of my abilities so see that if any questions remain.

    This tutorial is awesome
    Since I increased the build to 2x, i increased breast size to 5x, to "balance" it out.
    Some newer costume, like the Halloween costume has a better polygon count at the chest so it is actually not bad, if you are into chubs.

    body-custom-max-20="2.00"
    body-custom-max-23="5.00"
    body-custom-max-24="5.00"
    body-custom-max-25="5.00"

    Is there any way you would be willing to share your version of the .xml data file via download link? I would love a copy of it and I am too lazy to make one of my own. Thanks!

    Upon trying to recompile. Anyone have an xml.dat with the bust slider at 5.00? I'd upload a bunch of modified .dat files with different sizes, but I've hit a wall with the above problem.

    I just compiled them real quickly, and there might be problems, including, but not limited to: multiple file having the same ratio.
    The tits are fat, use with caution.

    Important: With today's patch (27/1) the contents of xml.dat were slightly changed. If you try to run the game with an xml.dat file made before this date you'll see all sorts of dislocated text fragments and other stuff that looks out of place. I have updated the download in first post with a new version which should work.

    so if you ever encounter this 'problem' in the future you'll need to the following:
    - Backup any modified characterdefvaluedata.xml files from xml.dat versions you made before the patch and wish to save. (Optional)
    - Delete the current xml.dat.files folder, as well as any versions of xml.dat you made before the patch.
    - Run the NClauncher and let it update/repair to get the latest patch and with it the new xml.dat version.
    - Re-extract the new xml.dat and continue your work from there.

    You can re-insert a modified characterdefvaluedata.xml file you backed up beforehand into the \engine folder of the (new) xml.dat.files. Recompile & repeat for every 'preset' you wish to carry over.

    This solution should hold for any future patches which change the structure of xml.dat.
