Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):



Q: Makeup not working?
A: You either installed the Unique Tav version thinking it's for a non-Origin Tav - it's not. It's for UNIQUE TAV mod compatibility.
OR you installed it with the right intention but you did not do it correctly by:
(a) forgetting to install the Unique Tav .pak or (b) not having the right load order.
It's also possible you have Unique Tav installed and for some reason is using the first version of this mod.

Q: Wrinkles too wrinkly/small texture cut showing on cheek?
A: Install the Less Wrinkled Expression mod.

Q: Can I just use Vortex instead of BG3MM?
A: Yes but if you encounter issues, you might need to tweak the load order which needs the mod manager.

Q: Speak with the Dead VFX/other face effects not working?
A: Padme has made a patch for this and other head mods combined. Go download it and give her some kudos!

Q: Naked men showing up instead of character creation?
A: You did not install all required dependencies. You still need the mod fixer.
(If you haven't installed the mod fixer but has everything working, that means you have another mod that has a built-in mod fixer).

Q: Will I make these work for strong body type?
A: That would take some work, and I don't have plans for it right now.
In the meantime, check out my Strong Female Heads.

Q: Gith versions where?
A: Right here + some extra.

Q: What hair/horn/piercing did you use for the screenshots?
A: Check below.

Q: What do I download/what's the difference between versions?
A: Download the Unique Tav version ONLY if you are using Unique Tav Custom Appearance. Load it before Unique Tav.
The main files (non-replacers) will add NEW heads to CC; optional files (replacers) will replace vanilla heads.
You can use replacers and the non-replacer at the same time if you want.
PS I won't be updating replacer heads anymore, consider them UNSUPPORTED.

Q: Can't scroll through CC options/Mod doesn't work?
A: Please read the installation steps carefully and MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE REQUIREMENTS.
