I think even if we can get model swapping between the games to work, the skeletons are too different for animations to work properly. Animations and skeletons are interchangeable but the CTR versions of Crash and Coco do not contain the animations needed to actually make them playable in the N Sane Trilogy. I can post some pictures some time to demonstrate what I mean if you want because I'm not really sure how to explain the problem.

I'm curious to see if using the Switch assets in the PC version might lead to a performance increase. (While my desktop can maintain 1080p60 and usually hit 4K30, my laptop struggles to run the game at 480p30. Also, I'm curious if it could make my desktop run the game at 4K60.)

NST on PC, NST on Switch, NST on PS4, CTR on Switch and presumably all other versions of both games each use a slightly different format for the models and I'm not sure anyone understands them well enough yet to be able to convert properly so at the moment even swapping between two versions of the same game isn't possible. Some things like the motorbike are identical between NST and CTR when you look at the actual model data but there's a lot of other stuff in the files that complicates things. I'm not sure using Switch models on PC would make any difference anyway, using lower res textures and disabling fur etc might give more of a performance boost, or removing a lot of background stuff from levels... I mean you'd have to ask someone who knows something about PC gaming and specs etc.

Do you think you could release mods like playing as fake crash (there is one on Nexus but it doesn't use your method so it's lacking stuff like aku-aku working correctly) or maybe even playing as Tawna? I don't know if she has enough animations to make it possible?

Fake Crash, Biker Crash, Scuba Crash and all those other mods that remove Aku Aku, yes I can definitely make my own versions of those which don't do that so I'll add those to my to do list. I did once experiment with the idea of making a playable Tawna that used her animation from the Crash 1 intro as a spin attack but she doesn't really have any other animations so she wouldn't be able to walk around or do anything really, like most characters.

As I said before, people have figured out the format of animations so it's not out of the question that someone might be able to create custom animations at some point, and if that happens then stuff like Princess Coco in the N Sane Trilogy or a playable Tawna are more likely to happen. But for now the best I can do is probably Papu Papu...
