Colourable Hair problem.

Post by Consequenz on Wed Aug 19, 2015 6:36 pm

Judging by the utter lack of male hair mods fallout3 and NV have to offer, i figured it was a good idea to port some skyrim mods into fallout (while giving credits of course)

porting was no problem at all, i'm just stuck at the colourable aspect of the hair.
i enabled "has vertex colors" in nifskope.
but i just don't understand the "_hl.dds"
I tried saving it to DXT3 and fiddling with photoshop to no avail

could anyone that understands help out?
it just stays this way:



just look at that fancy haircut though, that hair alone just mad fallout a hundred times better, it would be a shame if i didn't get it to work. Smile

Thanks in advance!

Make sure the hair doesn't have 'fixed color' checked in GECK, that the hair_hl texture has a proper alpha channel and that you're generating mipmaps when saving it.

And as a general heads up, if you plan on releasing/sharing this, make sure you get the permission of the original author first.

I agree that there ain't much hair mods for men. Hope that this gets done with proper permissions & all. Encountered same problem when making tweaks in Skyrim (numenume hairstyles). Tips by tesvixen is sound. Hope that a wig mod is in the offing as well.
