I'm trying to port a character from another game as a custom race and need to fit the head-mesh's neck to the vanilla one.

Because of the latter utterly lacking any muscles around the neck and the way the vanilla-neck is cut, meaning that it isn't level - I'm having a hard time aligning the new one to it.
I've already tried snapping the vertices manually via proportional editing and applying a Shrinkwrap Modifier, but didn't succeed.

So, what's the trick?

First of all: Thanks for trying to help.

Second, the neck-seam, RGMage2 found so insufferable, has always been a nuisance in F3/F:NV. But it isn't the problem I have: mine is that I want to port a head-mesh from another game (like Isquall's Femshep mod), which of course doesn't initially fit to the neck-vertices in Fallout.
Third, what RGMage2 did could indeed be a solution albeit a rather lackluster one. One would plunge the new head into the neck as if the latter were a sheath. I find the new seam, which is rather a gap, quite unnerving, so I give this a pass. But it's an idea nevertheless.

@shadowshade How about ask dragbody if you can? He's made new head models or ported them from other games, I'm pretty sure he can help you.

Does anyone know how to get Blender (2.49b with NifScripts) to export an .egm file for a head mesh?
According to this tutorial:
Code:
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/62328/?
it should be enough to add 50 shapes of EGM SYM to the mesh. Which isn't the case. I made those shapes actually do something and Blender still does not give me an .egm file Hulk Angry
