If I had to take a guess, I'd say it looks like the mod author used his MvCi model for the body.

I'd say you're right. It doesn't fit this game's graphics engine at all. Textures are overly flat and ridiculously oversaturated by comparison. I've criticized this game for having dull colors but making a mod that's literally saturation 100 doesn't work either. The colors have to be an approximation and the detail needs to be comparable. The "normal maps" (too long to explain what they are, it's essentially how the game renders smooth lighting/shadows onto the textures) may as well not exist either because he's got a flat sheen literally on everything. The DT form looks even worse, especially because the "trenchcoat/wings" have no physics (understandable, considering it's extremely time consuming to rig that s*** yourself and I can't criticise it too harshly, I wouldn't even know where to begin with 3D modelling/editing/rigging/etc.)
You can see where the textures wrap, as there are seams here and there as well, the most noticeable being the forearms. Also you can see right on the thumbnail that the chest is clipping through the trenchcoat.
The proportions are all over the place as well... observe:

The neck is bulging but the shoulders are tiny, while the legs look like balloons.
I'm absolutely sure making this stuff is hard, but if you already went through the trouble to port the model... at least push yourself a bit harder and make it look perfect before releasing. It's always disappointing to me when mods of costumes from past games show up and they just look bad.

I mean, really look at this:

Does that look like it fits DMC5 to you?

The original textures in DMC3 have more detail than this...

The DMC1, DMC2 mods looked a lot better. The guy just needs to fine tune it a little bit more

Seriously though, the cinematography and colour palette are so disappointing compared to DMC3. Like, that game was ridiculously vibrant and the camerawork (in cutscenes, not gameplay) was frequently gorgeous. Here, everything from Dante, Nero and Vergil's coats to the actual enemies is ridiculously bland. The only real splashes of colour come from Summoned Swords and King Cerberus, since even Devil Trigger is boring now.

I just don't understand the decision to keep the "wacky woohoo pizza man adventures" vibe, with all the crazy anime style action and shounen level spontaneous power boosts (*cough*Dante&Nero*cough*) and then present it with the style and colour of yet another Western gritty action thriller, probably starring Liam Neeson. It feels like a return to the brown-and-grey sludge era of the PS3.
Piano, turkey, Donald Trump's down-belows, Arkansas wardrobe, flagellation, polar bears - it's beans! Can we expect any nuclear fallout today, John? Certainly!

They managed to use the Monster Hunter DMC1 Dante recently. Looks alright.

f*** that costume looks good.

Capcom really out there missed out on free money. People would have ate these s*** up. The DMC1 orignal mod got an texture upgrade too

Yep.

Incidentally. Is anybody still eating up that bulls*** excuse that they have to use the clothes scanning tech to make more costumes?

Some people still do, the evidence is out there but i guess they can't be bothered to look it up.
