Description
===========

This adds some hairs converted from Oblivion to Fallout 3.

As any mod that modifies races is incompatible with other mods that modify the same races, I am only adding the hair meshes and textures and instructions on how to add these hairs to your favourite race using the GECK.

All hairs are fully colourable and are conformulated to fit any face shape, except Ren's and Coolsims hairs that are fully colourable but not conformulated.

******************************************************
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE "EXAMPLE ESP FILE":


As it has been requested multiple times, I have finally uploaded an esp file that adds the hairs to vanilla young races. It also adds Yoshikanota and Saram hairs. The example esp has also Throttlekitty eyelashes included as I use them So, all male, kids and old people use the default eyelashes textures (lucheyelashes) but young and mature female of all races use another texture (kaleyelashesseq_sil).
So, to see the eyelashes on females you have to copy the files kaleyelashesseq_sil.dds and kaleyelashesseq_n.dds to the folder Data\Textures\Characters\Eyelashes\

This esp file is not compatible with any other mod that modifies vanilla races. The esp does not contain Ren's, Coolsims or Room's hairs.
