[FNV] Problem with Headmesh [solved] Empty
PostSubject: [FNV] Problem with Headmesh [solved]   [FNV] Problem with Headmesh [solved] EmptyFri Jul 21, 2017 6:14 pm

I want more Asari for my Sci-fi project and did some edits to the liara-headmesh from Isquall's Asari Project. I imported the .nif into 3ds and send the scene to mudbox and when I finished there I send it back to 3ds and saved from there as .nif, opened the .nif in NifSkope and exported the headmesh as an .obj, then I replaced the headmesh from the original liaramorph.nif with the edited one. Everything looks fine in Nifskope but in the GECK as well as in the game the head is messed up: parts are missing, the texture is weird and there's that plane-thing stretching away.
Spoiler:
 

The texture, which is from Eleonora Arcuri - elyhumanoid.deviantART.com, is definitely not what's causing the problem here.

In case anyone is wondering why I don't make those changes in the game - it seems one can't: when I try to change the shape in the race menu nothing happens and when I try to do the same in the GECK it instantly crashes.

Edit 1: Upon further testing I think the problem is related to the .egm and .tri files for the new headmesh. I tried using the Conformulator by setting as the .tri the one that comes with the above mentioned Asari-Project-Mod and as the .obj the according export of the new headmesh. Unfortunately the headmesh is still distorted - just differently:

Spoiler:
 

The odd thing about this is that when I set the preview-option in the GECk to head-only everything looks fine. But when I set it to the full-body or when I'm in game I get these ugly distortions.

Edit 2: When I export from Mudbox as .obj I don't get the distortions. Unfortunately something is wrong with the Materials, even though I also selected the Material before exporting. It is also the case that I don't get the .mtl-file, one normaly gets when for example exporting as .obj via Nifskope. The strange thing is that everything looks fine material-wise in Nifskope - the settings are the exact same; apart from the error message I get when importing.

Generally I strictly work with Blender for custom races, but one thing that could have happened between the obj exporting/importing was some of the verts may have become out of order. As for the infinity stretching mesh there, make sure everything is still weighted right. Seems like something isn't parented right.

However distortions like this I've noticed have been because of the EGM made by the conformulator. The ones generated from it will create some bizarre monstrosities. You can always create your own in Blender, but I would advise against it.

I helped a bit with this guide, and it's the most comprehensive for custom races in FNV: http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/62328/?

Thanks for trying to help!

I'm at the end of part 2 of the tutorial you linked and when trying to export with Blender as .nif I get error - float division

I followed the instructions meticulously and have no idea what that error-message is all about.

Sorry, I can't make much sense of Blender's error reports.

Can you send me the model you edited, and the original you based it off? I can find out what's wrong a lot faster than typing back and forth.

Sure and thanks!

I am in doubt though regarding the original - it's liaramorph.nif from Isquall's "Asari Project - Liara T'Soni"

Code:
http://lsquall.deviantart.com/art/Fallout-New-Vegas-MOD-Asari-Project-Liara-T-Soni-344570697

As far as I see it's still not clear what guidelines apply to his content:
Code:
http://www.gunetwork.org/t3180p20-leon-race-mod

My stuff is here:
Code:
deleted

Edit: As suggested I send you a PM.

"CMDmorph.nif" is the file with what I think - see Edit 2 in my first post - is an issue with the material.
"asari1.blend" came into being by exporting the headmesh from Mudbox as .obj and then following as far as part 2 the steps described in the tutorial you linked.
