Compatibility patch for UC and UPR with Enhanced Character Edit.
It's an Unique Character cumulative version, bodies+heads.
--- Special cases with NifSkope: head meshes, werewolf, and vampire lord. ---
Unique-DLCDawnguard.esp creates all meshes and textures paths for the heads, but to work the specular map (*_s.dds) in "unique" folders is required to redirect in mesh (*.nif).
* it’s the file name.
Skyrim by default has a werewolf mesh for male and female (malebodywerewolf_1.nif), logically using the same textures for both gender (for sample werewolfbody.dds).
I created a new posibility (femalebodywerewolf_1.nif), to customize male and female werewolf separately, this new mesh using texture names created by me (for sample werewolfbodyfemale.dds).
In UC my mesh (vanilla) allows to customize head and body textures for werewolf player in Unique folders, for eyes and mouth textures using vanilla paths.
In UPR my mesh (vanilla) allows to customize all textures in Unique folders, head, body (in two independent parts), eyes and mouth.
Dawnguard by default has both meshes (vampirelord.nif and vampirelordfemale.nif) using different textures for both gender (for sample vampirelord.dds and vampirelordfemale.dds).
In UC and UPR my meshes (vanilla) allow to customize body textures for vampire lord player in Unique folders, for eyes using vanilla paths.
vampirelord.nif and vampirelordfemale.nif contain a double mesh (body and eyes), in the vanilla meshes you can only to customize the body, so if you also want to customize the eyes you need a *fully customizable mesh.
*This Vampire Lord replacer (main file) has these features.
Additional information to modders and users about werewolf and vampire lord:
The case of werewolf and vampire lord are special, because the textures paths are embebbed in the mesh, so no file .esp or .esm are involved. If you use a non vanilla mesh take in account that mesh will redirect to its own textures path.
Obviously the decision is yours, you can direct in your mesh the texture paths to your custom path or to "unique" folders.
To modders with texture paths in "unique" folders:
The textures folder structure for werewolf and vampire lord into male and female folders is fully flexible, you can modify this folders structure according to your needs.
My advice to facilitate installation to users is stating in your mod about the needs of your new mesh, for example: if your mesh is using new texture folders structure, if using new textures, if there are new rename textures or unnecessary textures for your mesh in "unique" folders and can be deleted, etc.
I recommend respecting the male and female folders and stay within them with all body parts, so for users will be easier to install or uninstall the textures.
Unique Character-Player Races is a Nexus exclusive mod, it's not allowed to upload it to other site.
