It's time for the awaited arrival of my first Genshin Impact mod for MUA: Hu Tao, the 77th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor!BIOGRAPHYThough at first glance, one can only see an eccentric girl with a knack for mischief, that does not even begin to describe the truth of Hu Tao's existence. Proudly shouldering the thousand-years old legacy of her bloodline, historically known for its role in ridding Teyvat of rampant disease through the act of cremation, she oversees all operations of Liyue's Wangsheng funeral parlor, famous for its more than respectful and by-the-book ceremonies to send the dead off to the afterlife.
While the start of her career was the moment she began living at the parlor as a young child, her true initiation was when she was requested by her late grandfather, the 75th director, to conduct his funeral. And so she did, though not without things unsaid, thus leading her on a secret journey to a place unknown by the public, where she knew spirits who still have attachments to the world of the living linger, to see him one more time.
Days and nights Hu Tao spent in that place, with unshakeable determination to find her grandfather's spirit, against all forms of mortal emergencies such as hunger, until she realized that one such as him would not die with regrets. "Live in life, die in death. Follow your heart, do what you can.", he always said. With a relieved smile, she departed for home, only to find that she had been gifted a Vision upon returning, a gift of the gods proving their acknowledgement of humans, granting her the power to manipulate the elemental might of Pyro.
This mod includes:
-one skin: Classic
-a mechanic which causes a boost to empower her Xtreme and her second power
-a mechanic which causes her first boost to be the first power unlocked

This mod clashes with Fox456's Moondragon mod. Before you install this mod, please backup ui/models/mannequin/2501.igb, as well as textures/loading/2501.igb, 2502.igb and 2503.igb. Also, if Moondragon's in your roster, remove her before adding Hu Tao in. Failing or neglecting to do so WILL result in issues.

Happy gaming, people. I find this mod super fun (totally not biased as its creator), and I hope you do too. Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.
