The Universal Alternate Attire Unlock is a helper mod created by Caveman and friends that allows players to unlock alternate attires for any wrestler and modded wrestler in certain WWE 2k games. Typically, there is a maximum of 100 wrestlers that can have up to 10 Alternate Attires each unlocked in the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock (The attires are typically named ATTIRE 1 - ATTIRE 10 or WRESTLEMANIA-WRESTLEMANIA 10), but they can be changed. It is packaged exclusively with Data Editor which includes the Universal Alternate Attire Unlocker GUI to make changes easier using a graphical user Interface and includes an Attire Name Editor since the Data Editor for WWE 2k17. Note that the Universal Alteranate Attire Unlock's unlocked attires have nothing to do with CAW Alternate Attires created by the in-game Creation Suite and work independently of the latter. This means that CAW Attires also don't count toward the 100 wrestler/10 attire maximum and can be added on top of it.

History

The Universal Alternate Attire Unlock was first released by Caveman as a beta standalone version for the PC version of WWE 2k15 in 2015. It was then added exclusively to Caveman's Wrestler Information and Moveset Creator, the predecessor of the Data Editor, which included a Graphical User Interface that allowed the user to change which wrestlers had how many attires unlocked in the game.

In 2016, a version of the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock for the PC Version of WWE 2k16 was released as part of the newly renamed Data Editor for WWE 2k16. The feature set of the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock GUI remained the same.

In early 2017, a version of the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock for the PC Version of WWE 2k17 was released as part of Data Editor for WWE 2k17. The Universal Alternate Attire Unlocker GUI was tweaked and an Attire Name Editor added that allows the user to change the name of each attire by referencing a String in the String file.

In late 2017, a version of the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock for the PC Version of WWE 2k18 was released as part of Data Editor for WWE 2k18. The Universal Alternate Attire Unlocker GUI was overhauled to a more compact format that should allow it to be more flexible, more easily upgradable and easier to maintain in the future. Furthermore, the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock only comes with the game's default Unlocked Attires instead of the 100 pre-unlocked wrestlers for older games due to the ease of unlocking them themselves via the Universal Alternate Attire Unlocker GUI.

In fall 2018, a version of the Universal Alternate Attire Unlock for the PC Version of WWE 2k19 was released as part of the Data Editor for WWE 2k19. The Universal Alternate Attire Unlocker GUI is based on the version for WWE 2k18 and was tweaked some more compared to previous versions.

Limitations

In WWE 2k15, WWE 2k16, WWE 2k17, WWE 2k18 and WWE 2k19 the maximum amount of wrestlers that can have any amount of alternate attires unlocked is 100 and the amount of alternate attires any one wrestler can have unlocked is 10. The Universal Alternate Attire Unlocker does not work with Created Superstars in WWE 2k15, WWE 2k16, WWE 2k17, WWE 2k18 nor WWE 2k19.
