MOD: Fauxhawk Hairstyle for ME3



Note that this mod is PC only! You can't replace Meshes on the consoles.

Mesh replacement is still young, use at your own risk =)



This is the Female Hair PCC which includes the permanent replacement of the Mohawk Mesh only. Make sure you run AutoTOC in ME3Explorer after copying the PCC into your CookedPC folder. You will have to run texmod to apply the textures. TPF is also included in the download.


This .MOD will include the permanent replacement of the Mohawk Mesh only. This mod was created with SVN rev 466. It should return 2 updates after you run the job.
You will have to use Texmod to apply the textures. TPF is also included in the download.


Lastly, for those that would like to pick which mesh to replace themselves or that have issues installing via the above methods: I have also uploaded the UPK for manual replacement. Hair texture is also included in the download.


Installation


To use this hairstyle on Shepard, do not forget to edit the following values with Gibbed:

Mesh: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.Hair_Mohawk.HMF_HIR_Mhk_MDL
Hair_diff: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.Hair_Short02.HMF_HIR_PROShort_Diff
Hair_mask: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.Hair_Short02.HMF_HIR_PROShort_Diff

Troubleshooting


I have run the .MOD but I'm still seeing the old Mohawk mesh ingame.
a: Run the .MOD again. It will likely return with another AutoTOC update and work afterwards.

I have tried the .MOD but it causes my game to crash to desktop.
a: My advice would be to revert your BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.pcc to vanilla and try again. You can also try manually throwing away your modded PCC files and repair your install via Origin. This will force a redownload to revert your PCC's to vanilla state. Now overwrite your PCConsoleTOC.bin with your modded backup, then run the PCConsoleTOC.bin updater through ME3Explorer and try again. If you keep experiencing issues make sure you're using rev 473 or above, or consider the PCC release.

I have tried the PCC but it causes my game to crash to desktop.
a: Make sure you ran AutoTOC in ME3Explorer after having copied and replaced the PCC file. If you have, try overwriting your PCConsoleTOC.bin to your modded backup, then run AutoTOC through ME3Explorer. If you keep experiencing issues make sure you're using rev 473 or above, or consider the .MOD or UPK release.

I have tried the PCC but it causes my game to get stuck on loading.
a: This is most likely a PCConsoleTOC.bin error. Try overwriting your PCConsoleTOC.bin to your modded backup, then run AutoTOC through ME3Explorer.

I can load un-modded saves but modded saves crash to desktop.
a: This is likely a Gibbed save error. Make sure there are no extra spaces before or after the codes you have changed.

I have tried to replace a mesh with your upk but it causes my game to crash / does not work.
a: The UPK itself is tested and works. If you've watched the tutorial I linked above, and followed all steps to the letter I can not help you, visit the ME3Explorer forum and ask for help there.

My support begins and ends with the functionality of my mods. I do not cover the inner workings of the tools you'll need to get acquainted with to use mods beyond giving some general troubleshooting tips. Further problems with them are best discussed on their respective websites or support forums.
