Improved clothing, textures, and vending machine branding - modders are already tweaking Shenmue I & II

What would you change?

They've only been out a few days, but already mods are popping up for Shenmue I & II on PC.

While Sega remained faithful to the original presentation of the 2000 and 2001 classic Dreamcast games, there's been a few tweaks and improvements, most notably to scale the graphics with screen resolutions, provide a choice of modern and classic controls, and update the user interface.

But if you're looking to boost the look of Shenmue even further, the modders are already hard at work (thanks, DSOG, via PC Gamer).

Before and after.

Ranging from the brilliant to the bizarre, there's already a modest selection of mods to choose from, including one to enhance environmental textures including the grass and trees, and another to sharpen the images on Ryo's iconic HD leather jacket and jeans, the "alternative" look of which improves the "ass area".

And if you're still reeling from the replacement of the Coca-Cola brand machines with no-brand impostors, this too can now be rectified.

Naturally, many of these mods are still in early development and remain works-in-progress, but all are available to try now.

Shenmue I & II is out now on PC.
