You need to add a new Lara object to your wad using wadmerger for instance. A tool which you will need to learn how to use.

If you are new to this, and level building in general, I suggest you worry less about how Lara looks, and concentrate on learning the basics first. :wink:

just in case : You can not change Lara's outfit in downloaded levels, only in Levels You build.

If it is about importing an outfit into the level You build, I think that is so easy, one may do so even as a beginner.
At www.trsearch.org, choose an outfit that has been reviewed already, and where those reviews say "no bugs found", then follow the link that is shown under each outfit over there that reads "Installing Custom Outfits (Tutorial)". That tutorial explains it really easy (don't try the one in spanish language though :lol: ) - only thing it does not tell : backup Your trle-folder before installing a new outfit, just in case.

If this is about creating a custom outfit yourself : that's hell. LOT of work with many different programs, each of wich will require loooong time to learn the usage of. That's just an amateur's impression.
(for a small glimpse of how many work involved You can have a look at another tutorial at trsearch.org. It is about how to apply textures to Lara's face in Photoshop, written by Jackie Wu/ Geckokid.)

For me personally, installing PoYu's NewStyleAdventurer outfit raised my motivation to deal with the trle.
Thou shall not mess with Lara's resting animation. NEVER. EVER!

Then I don't understand how you can think that you did everything you needed to do - obviously you didn't.

After you've modified a wad, remember to save it and convert the level.
