Fixed Facegen NPC Textures

Post by FiftyTifty » Tue Aug 18, 2020 11:30 pm

An issue that's plagued Fallout all the way back to the release of Fallout 3, is that the face textures are completely wonky. Dark-skinned characters are covered in blue and green facepaint, with lighter skinned characters covered in bleached skin. But, turns out that the fix has been nested away in the Oblivion Nexus. It was wholly compatible with Fallout 3 and New Vegas, so here we are. I've re-exported all the face textures for every character in TTW, so there are no more fucked up face textures.

Keep in mind that while the archive is only 40MB, uncompressed the .bsa files take up 1.8GB total.

Fixing it for the player character involves editing the Fallout - Meshes.bsa, which is something that should be rolled into TTW 3.3. So unfortunately, your player character is going to still have the weird face textures.

Would this work with normal New Vegas as well? I've already played TTW, and I'm trying to set up a run using another program so it's in VR. I'm using normal New Vegas for a wider selection of mods and stuff, and something like this seems like it would be nice to have.

Don't see why it wouldn't work.

Would you be able to post some before and after screenshots to get a better idea of what this fixes. I love me some before and after screenshots.

I assume the installation is copying over all the archived files into the Data folder and enabling the .esm?
I'm not alright, I'm an equal amount of left.

He posted some after images of popular characters in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=8294&start=30#p70410

I've got the fixed files installed and I'm shocked at how much better everyone looks.

Damn...did I miss something when installing this? I copied everything to the data folder, activated the esm which is at the bottom of the esm list in FOMM (by the way is it ok to clean? Looks like there's a lot of edits to the worldspace entries from what fnvedit shows) but Lucas Simms still seems to have some green tint around his eyes and mouth.
tp for my bunghole?

Check your ini files and makes sure you have bLoadFaceGenHeadEGTFiles set correctly.

The plugin itself can have every record inside it removed, I just forgot to do that as I just straight up archived the files I was working with. Make sure you have the latest JIP installed, as .bsa archives can only override each other with it.

Forgot to mention that it was already set to 1. Also made sure that I was using the latest NVSE version from the github page and I was. I've got the esm checked and at the bottom of the esm list if that matters. Would FOMM's archive invalidation have anything to do with it, or only when there's loose files that match filenames within the BSA?
