Texture and Mesh Not Being Found

Post by Delineator on Wed Oct 22, 2014 2:24 pm

I've been trying to port lsquall's Miranda Lawson race into a companion for Fallout 3 (for personal use just yet). Unfortunately, there have been several roadblocks in the way, and all but two have been resolved. Let me give you a little explanation on my, erm, hardships:

1. I'm using Linux Mint, and FOMM does not want to run on it, no matter what I do, which means I can't use its built-in TESNip function. The standalone TESNip doesn't want to work for me, either.
2. Manually copying entries from one mod to another in FO3edit because you can't copy them directly is a very tedious process.

The problem now is that I can't get her eyes or eyelashes to show up. The eye sockets are empty, and the eyelashes are coming up purple. I've checked the paths in the ESP file, and they are correct. The texture requested is not missing, which leads me to suspect that I'm looking at the wrong things. I've checked, and this still happens with no other mods enabled.

Here's a picture of what I'm getting:

Any idea what's going on here?

could it be it uses throttlekitty's eyelashes and you didn't check its specific path?

The "Race" section of the esp contains the paths to the eyelashes, hair, etc., and was one of the few I was able to copy directly over, so that shouldn't be an issue. That being said, I do believe it uses a modified version of throttlekitty's eyelashes, but the paths all look correct.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, her underwear was also having the rapidly-changing texture bug before I figured out how to get her armor to show up. Could that be related?

Another edit: I got eyelashes to work...somewhat.

Spoiler:

However, as in the image above, there is still a purple "missing texture" area occupying the space directly behind the working eyelashes. Note that the eyes themselves are still not showing up.

mouthmerged, vacuus, emtpytrans etc. are you really sure all the assets are in the right place? are both the nif files pointing to the right dds and the values on the esp? I would double check with FNVEdit, since there's nothing else that could causes that (excluding Archive Invalidation, but I really doubt it's your case)

I attach you a pic of the assets I'm referring, just to explain me better:

I know what you're talking about. There was a small typo in the address for her lashes, and typos in the addresses for the eye models, but those are fixed now, and they still don't show up in game. In fact, fixing those typos did absolutely nothing that I could see. I have checked the folders several times, and all of the necessary resources are there; I had ripped them straight from the BSA file used for her New Vegas race mod, so everything should be in the right spot, unless something is seriously messed up.

I also deactivated, then reactivated Archive Invalidation, just to be sure, and it did nothing.

EDIT: It seems the effects were delayed. I had to launch the game twice for the eyes and eyelashes to show up. Yeehaw! cowboy


Thanks for your help!

Now it seems that I messed something up with her ability to be added as a companion (this might have something to do with me turning the ESM into an ESP), and she still has the underwear texture bug, though. I don't know what's up with that. If I had to guess, I'd say it has to do with a body texture somewhere. I'll work on it. I could just use a nude body texture, but I'd rather give people a SFW mod, and let them make it NSFW on their own.
