Missing prop skin

In Dead Rising 2 when an unmovable item is removed, a bright red and purple "missing prop" box is put in its place. The file is located at:

Dead Rising 2\data\models\special

under: missingprop.big and missingprop.tex

Rename these files and the missing prop box will no longer show up after you remove immovable items.

Off the Record

Use the same method found here: Mod:HUD#Removing the Guide arrow

Trivia[edit source]

  • In NPCs.big, changing Iszombifyable = false to Iszombifyable = true if the character does not have a zombie model will create a missing prop box.
  • Texmod list this item as

Gallery[edit source]

World without surrounding environment or missing props
