TERA: Uncensor Your Elin

As of recently, one of my guildies mentioned how easy it is to get the original K-TERA files of the uncensored Elin.  What?  Uncensored Elin?  When I say uncensored, I don’t mean naked, I just mean skimpier outfits.  The original outfits for the Elin race were skimpy.  Instead of wearing ugly, untextured booty shorts, they wore decorative panties with detail until the Americans complained during BETA that it was wrong for the Elin race to be wearing such skimpy outfits.  It made people feel like it was wrong and pedophilish.  But, if you do want the original K-TERA files for your Elin, here is how to get them.

..:: UPDATE – August 11, 2014 – Faces Are Showing Up Black ::..

We understand that most of you are experiencing some blacked out faces with the Uncensored Elin files. This is due to the Elin Reaper update from TERA. Elins now have new facial features available which will cause the face to be blacked out if you have the Uncensored files installed. As of right now, we have NO fix for this unless we can get our hands on some updated Uncensored Elin files. If anyone knows where to get them, we would be more than happy to look into it and update this post.

..:: UPDATE – June 1, 2014 ::..

Pixel Imperfect is away that our links were down for awhile due to our download source page being removed. We have verified a working link to the Uncensored K-TERA Elin files here ► Click HERE be redirected to the Uncensored Elin K-TERA files download page.


Keep in mind, no one else will be able to see your Elin in the uncensored version.  Only you will be able to see your Elin as well as everyone else’s Elins in the uncensored form.  You cannot be banned for this, as far as I know, since you’re just altering the files to change the appearance of a race and you’re not affecting any players by doing this since they cannot see your uncensored Elin unless they performed the Elin uncensored download file process.  You’re not cheating the game, therefore, this isn’t ban-able.

I also wanted to mention that I have set up a donation button at the end of the article.  This goes towards me being able to bring you fun, quality, and/or informative blogs.  Please click HERE to jump to the donation section of the page.

Here is a picture of uncensored Elins VS censored Elins.

Notice the detailed underwear and belly showing instead of belly being covered and just booty shorts.

Belly shows and detailed panties.

Midriff and panties.

Belly shows a little and bottom of outfit comes up higher.

A few things to keep in mind before replacing any files.

Some of the differences are very small, like instead of having black booty shorts, they have black panties on instead, so the differences might not always be apparent.  But for some of the outfits, you can tell that there is more detail in the bottom part of their outfit.  Another thing you should keep in mind before replacing the files is that there may be a few glitches.  For example, if you have the Maid outfit and you perform the e-mote, Kitchen Dance, it will not work!  Your Elin will literally stand still but her head will move around in a weird way.  So, if you still want to see your Elin as well as others perform the Kitchen Dance, then I advise that you do not do this.  Another problem that I noticed after replacing the files is that when you select the Elin class, she does not show up right.  She will most likely be shown as just a head with ears, a tail, and an invisible body, but 0nce you select the Elin to create her, everything should look normal and you should see the descensored version of your Elin in some of the clothes.  Note that not all of the Elin’s clothes are descensored, some will still be the same.  It’s mainly just the cloth-wearing Elins that have descensored items.

How to download and replace files.

If you’re positive you want to download the original K-TERA files, this is what you need to do.

  1. Go to this link and download the RAR file.
    Uncensored Elin RAR File Download
    If I gave you the link correctly, it should just pop up for you and ask you where to download it, or it will download it to whatever temporary downloads folder that you have automatically selected for your computer.  If the link brings you to a Media Fire page, you need to enter the Captcha code in the center of the screen to unlock the download to the file; but hopefully, I gave you the best link I could and it won’t make you do that.
  2. Once you download the RAR files, you need to extract the files so that you have the original kTERA files.  If you view the files that you just downloaded, you will notice that they will be labeled as Popori.  Do not fret!  This is normal since originally the Popori and Elin were all supposed to be one race, but later they decided to split them up by gender and name one Popori and the other Elin.  That is why they will be labeled as Popori instead of Elin.  I assure you, your Popori characters will not be affected in any way.
  3. Open your TERA folder.  I have a lot of people say that they have trouble finding the location of their TERA folder.  It is actually very hard to find because it’s not listed where you might think it would be listed.  So, the easiest way to locate your TERA file is go to your Desktop and right-click on the TERA Launcher desktop icon.  Select Properties and select the Shortcut tab if it’s not already selected by default.  There should be a button near the bottom of the window that says Open File Location, click on that.
  4. You should now be in your TERA folder.  This is what my path name says Computer > Local Disk (C:) >ProgramDataHappyCloud > Cache > TERA
     
  5. From there, click the following: Client > S1 Game > CookedPC > Art_Data > Packages > CH > PC
  6. I highly recommend that you make a copy of your PC folder before the file transfer and place it in the Documents folder on your computer, or somewhere you will remember it and can keep it for safe-keeping.  You should do this in case you change your mind about the uncensoring files.  I did once I realized that the Kitchen Dance e-mote from the Maid pack wouldn’t work.  In my opinion, losing the Kitchen Dance e-mote wasn’t worth it since I did pay for it after all.
  7. Now that you’ve made your copy and placed it somewhere else, open the downloaded folder and keep clicking these folders De-Censor Elin v1.5 > Client > S1 Game > CookedPC > Art_Data > Packages > CH > PC.  Click on the PC folder and you should see around 10+ files in there, select all of those files and drag and drop them into your PC folder in your TERA files.  Select Copy and Replace for all files when the window pops up.
  8. If you did it right, you should be set and you can start testing to see if you did it right by going into character customization mode and creating a new Elin character.  I recommend a cloth wearing class like Mystic, Priest, or Sorcerer because there tends to be more detail in those outfits.  You should notice a difference, if not then you might have done something wrong in the downloading or copy and replacing process.  Or it’s very possible that I missed a step.

If you have any questions at all or feel as though I’ve missed a step, please ask away and leave a comment here or on our Facebook page.  Also, please let me know if the file download link has stopped working.  I do not have any sort of file hosting accounts, so I must go outside and use other people’s files.  Last I checked, the links I have here worked and are spy-ware free and virus free.  And if you do want to post a comment, please make sure that it isn’t rude or inappropriate or else it will be deleted from the website.

Troubleshooting

I have stopped playing TERA, so unfortunately, I can only help so much.  However, here are a few great comments that some of our readers left.  They may help you if your game keeps crashing or if you keep receiving game errors when you go to launch the game.

  • “SO perusing the original thread it looks like this was updated to 1.6 and replacing the .gkp files don’t work but apparently adding a _PC folder inside the CH folder works.” – Blair
  • “When you drag the files to the directory you have to pay attention to the texts. I was clicking ”ignore” everytime thinking that it would replace the files but it didn’t. I realized that then i tried again clicking in Move and Replace and it worked perfectly!” – kato2561

  1. Hi there Blair here again after awhile this time I have a simple fix for the black face In the main PC folder assuming you used the _PC method copy the following files into the _PC folder Popori_F_Head.gpk and the Popori_F_H/R/L_30/31.gpk. I noticedit was only face 1 that had the issue and yeah this should fix it ^^

  2. Hi, i know this might be a very very late reply, but im having trouble, i think its cuz of the new patch but, i follow the instruction very carefully but every time i start the game it gives me a Fatal Error message and does not load. I checked I make sure it is the correct file path and everything, but it gives me the same thing. It was downloaded by happy cloud. If you still active i would really appreciate the advice thank you.

    • If it is giving you a fatal error, we recommend that you put the original files back. We will probably have to wait until we can get some decent K-TERA files since the Elin Reaper patch is still considered fresh, even though it is a few months old now.

      • ok sure, but i finally got it to work, i read all the post 3 times up there and read to put the downloaded textures in the ” _PC ” folder. I just created the _PC folder in the inside the CH folder and placed the textures there. It worked very well, like people stated black faces appear on a few faces but the armors work fine from what ive seen. I really appreciate the reply though. Thank you again so much : D

  3. I tried the mod out but it didn’t work 100%? The faces are black except for the eyes even when I’m playing/fighting…. it only changes the mystics’ pants OTL I have a elin slayer and it didn’t get rid of the huge white bloomers and it made her faceless ;-; any idea how to fix this issue? >< Thanks!

    • Remove Popori_F_Head.gpk from the De-censor patch and use the official one. If you overwritten the original, you will have to ask a friend or maybe checkfiles/redownload.

  4. It looks like this link is dead, it tells me the account that hosted the Download has been suspended. Thanks anyway though!

    • Yes. I’m sorry. I’m going to do some research to see if I can find a working link. & I don’t play TERA anymore so I don’t have the I censored files. I was using gaming vixens link (I think that’s what their site is called) but I guess their file hosting page got suspended so I will try to find a new, working link. But I as told by another TERA gamer that supposedly, TERA is going to implement a patch update this April or May that’s would cause the uncensored ktera files to not work. I’ll still try to find a working link, but if this is true about the patch, then you would only be able to have an uncensored elin for a short time anyway :(

      • The big Reaper patch I would think would kill any de-censor patch because it adds in a new class with new armors most likely. Will have to wait for someone to release a new patch that includes the Reaper as well.

      • @Kyuta, just how do you use that mod? I tried it and I can’t see my character in game.

      • Just run the installer and point it to where you installed TERA. It then backs-up the original files and copies the modded files. Not sure why it would cause you to not be able to see your character in game.

      • It’s the 1.3 download right? I’ll try it again just to make sure I didn’t install it to the wrong place.

      • It worked now! Thanks for the link, My lolicon inside wouldn’t play the game before.

  5. Oh my god i’m soo stupid…. Again, sorry for my bad english once i’m from a portuguese country. I want to warn everyone! When you drag the files to the directory you have to pay attention to the texts. I was clicking ”ignore” everytime thinking that it would replace the files but it didn’t. I realized that then i tried again clicking in Move and Replace and it worked perfectly! This tip may be useless to the majority of you guys because you have to be too stupid like me to make a mistake like that.

    Thanks for all the support you’re giving to the people, Lithiya!

  6. Lithiya, i did everything you said but nothing changes in my game. I already unnisntalled the game and did everything again but the visuals stills the same. I don’t know what do do anymore… Can you help me please? Sry for the bad english

    • Hmmm, it could just not be working for you. Some people are having problems and others are not and we’re not sure exactly why some people are having issues and others aren’t. I wish I could be of more help but I honestly don’t understand why it’s not working for some people now but other people aren’t having problems.

  7. I did all you told me too but it crashes right after I select my class for the Elins. It freezez then crashes and I dont know what do ):

    • Did you see this comment that one of our viewers made? “SO perusing the original thread it looks like this was updated to 1.6 and replacing the .gkp files don’t work but apparently adding a _PC folder inside the CH folder works.” This might be able to help with your situation. If not, the only thing I can say is replace your Elin files with the original files and you’ll just have to play the game normally. Some people seem to be having problems while others are not.

      • Could you do a new uncensor?? I’m asking this not because it stopped working, but because they will release the new exclusive elin class on april, and i’m sure this one won’t work anymore =/

        funny is that the costumes show a lot more than the normal items(uncensored)

      • just passing here to say that it’s still working even after the reaper patch, good job =3

      • to anyone who is using this mod and want still didn’t patch your game, first change the mod for the original files and after the end of the patch put the mod back.

      • Or to make it easier so you don’t have to worry about replacing and restoring files create a “_mod PC” folder in your TERA\Client\S1Game\CookedPC\Art_Data\Packages\CH folder and move all the uncensored mods into that folder while leaving the original files in the original PC folder. Works for me.

  8. Hey guys having a problem with updating the game after installing the mod. It says “source file is corrupted” or something like that, and I got no back up of previous non-mod edition. Does anyone know where I can download those files? Need it asap! xD

    • Unfortunately, since I don’t play the game anymore, I have no idea where you can find “non-corrupted” files. But people haven’t been having problems lately. The only thing I can suggest is uninstalling and reinstalling the game since you didn’t make a backup copy.

    • Although, here is something one of our commenters said and it seems to help a lot “SO perusing the original thread it looks like this was updated to 1.6 and replacing the .gkp files dont work but aparently adding a _PC folder inside the CH folder works”.

  9. SO perusing the original thread it looks like this was updated to 1.6 and replacing the .gkp files dont work but aparently adding a _PC folder inside the CH folder works

    • Ah! Sorry I couldn’t get back to your comment before trying to figure it out for you. I no longer play TERA so when people have questions about the elin files I need to look it up on forums. Since your comment was very helpful, I’m going to add a troubleshooting section to this blog.

      • Here is something one of our commenters said that was very helpful “SO perusing the original thread it looks like this was updated to 1.6 and replacing the .gkp files dont work but aparently adding a _PC folder inside the CH folder works”.

  10. I put the retexture, ad its crashing happy cloud download is in 89%, is it because of that ? I did everything perfectly

    • If the Decensored Elin files were put into the TERA folder incorrectly, then yes, it is definitely a possibility that it is crashing your Happy Cloud client. Most people aren’t having any issues as long as they downloaded the files and put them in the correct place in their TERA folder.

  11. Okay. I’m onto something…

    I can put in the files that are

    Popori_F_H/R/L with the allocated numbers of 19/20/21 files for each letter.

    Now, I get a notice about insufficient memory. But I still have 800GB of space on my HDD….

    • I’ve gotten error messages like that from TERA before. All I had to do was restart the client and it would work for me. I’m sorry, but without physically being at your computer, I can’t tell what’s wrong. :(

    • You may have to go into your computer and uninstall it manually, which is by deleting the TERA & Happy Cloud Client files. That is odd that your computer isn’t allowing you to uninstall the program though. I was having problems with TERA even when I didn’t have the Elin files in and found out it was an actual TERA issue not my computer issue. What I recommend is completely getting rid of all of the Happy Cloud and TERA data if you cannot do so through the Control Panel in your computer and reinstall the game.

      This may help as well; a friendly reader wrote this comment in regards to this blog article and client crash issues:
      “The Elin DeCensor mod has always created problems with character creation. some things will not render properly during character creation, but they will render properly once you enter the game. Ive never personally had any issues with it crashing my client, but if you encounter that I would remove the files until the character is created then install the fix. – Jay”

  12. The Elin DeCensor mod has always created problems with character creation. some things will not render properly during character creation, but they will render properly once you enter the game. Ive never personally had any issues with it crashing my client, but if you encounter that I would remove the files until the character is created then install the fix.

  13. If the other players cannot see your texture mods, does that mean it’s okay to use Nude Textures for your Tera characters in game?

    • I have not done the research, but since you would be the only one seeing the mod and nobody else, then it shouldn’t be an issue. People normally get banned in games for “getting caught”, but since other people can’t see it, then there’s nothing to report. I hope this helps.

  14. Glad to see the original Author is still keeping an eye on this after all this time (thanks for your hard work)

    I’m running the European version as I live in the UK and this is not working for me. Could possibly be due to a patch that came out on the 21st of this month? I can create characters just fine but sadly they’re the western character models and not the originals. Any thoughts?

    • Since you have the UK version, that is most likely why the original KTera files aren’t working for you. When I got my hands on these files I was told they would NOT work at all for the UK addition. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find a UK version for the uncensored Elin bc the UK game files are way different than US & Korea.

  15. i have been clicking on the file that you said to download it do i haft to use the new one from the earliest comment some posted?

  16. Hello my error is that there is a lock on the pc file and when I try to move and replace the files it says I need permission.

    • That sounds like a setting on your computer. Are you on a computer with other users on it? You would need to be under an administrator account to make it work it sounds like.

    • Hmmm, that’s odd because I tested it out for my game and it worked for me. It did do the glitch where when you go to create a character, all that shows for the Elin is her head and her tail, but once I selected Elin everything was fine. Aaaah, maybe this is the problem; I re-downloaded the file to see what was up and this new file download downloads differently from the last one I had, so maybe this is what you need to do. Go in the downloaded “De-Censor Elin v1.5″ folder and keep clicking on the sub-folders until you reach “PC”, open the “PC” folder, highlight all the files in there, and drag and drop those files into your TERA folder under “PC” (“Client > S1 Game > CookedPC > Art_Data > Packages > CH > PC”). Then a window should pop up asking if you want to replace files, save both files, etc. select “Replace All Files” and it should work.

      • I tried this this – I can now get past the create a character screen, but when I select the class it crashes.

      • Hmmm that’s odd, it worked for me. Sometimes people mess up the transferring files process, try this process instead: Go in the downloaded “De-Censor Elin v1.5″ folder and keep clicking on the sub-folders until you reach “PC”, open the “PC” folder, highlight all the files in there, and drag and drop those files into your TERA folder under “PC” (“Client > S1 Game > CookedPC > Art_Data > Packages > CH > PC”). Then a window should pop up asking if you want to replace files, save both files, etc. select “Replace All Files” and it should work.

        If that doesn’t work then the only thing I can suggest is to put the original files back into TERA, make sure your game doesn’t crash when you start that up and if it crashes with the original files it means there’s probably a corrupted file somewhere. Not “corrupted” as in “virus” I mean “corrupted” as in “broken”.

  17. Does this still work even with recent NA TERA patch? I had to remove mine to download the patch.. looking for new/working one.

    • Yes it should still work as long as you’re on the North American version. The only thing you might have glitches with is the Kitchen Dance if you purchased the Twice Maid Bundle and the Elin that shows up when you go to select a class in character creation mode. I just confirmed with two of my guildies that these files still work for them. I personally don’t use them because they glitched out my Kitchen Dance and I didn’t like that.
