Complete Graphical Overhaul for Final Fantasy VII

New Barret model, he is no longer AC styled and is more suited to the game.
Diamond Weapon has had it's world map and battle model readjusted and fixed/updated
Ruby Weapon now has new textures and has been remodeled in BATTLE only (field to come!)
The Materia (blue was the trouble maker) has now been CORRECTED, no longer is it missing its textures (showing white) I apologize for this as I know it might have made a few people miss a materia pickup somewere in game!

Guard Scorpion has now had its textures fixed/updated
Added new models for the potion vials seen laying around the field (like the materia) with better textures!

COMING THIS UPDATE! (Date: 23/05/2014)

Models:Vincent's model has been updated, Vincent's Weapon models updated, Motorball battle model updated, Cloud's world model has been updated, Highwind has had a slight update in terms of textures

Minigame re-modeling: Motorball textures updated in minigame

Bonus: Updated textures of a few extra battle scenes!

General Bug Fixes: Limit break broken texture has been corrected, it is no longer white, Sorry!

SPECIAL: I've begun making a progress towards modding Summons! as of yet the MAJORITY of them have new high quality sound effects, all that remains is changing the models/textures for them, however I'm not sure when this will be completed.

love it so far, even if the animations look a bit janky at times, still worth it...But when i got Cid, nocited his field model has a black textureless mesh from his hips to his legs...doesnt look too good :S. Just wanted to let you know, in case you were still working on it, aside of that, this is really cool :D
