Best used with my other mod: Companions Redone.

1. Default Skins:

  - uh_hed_dwfa_*.dds - dwarven, rough with some wrinkles
  - uh_hed_quna_*.dds - very rough, wrinkly, dark eyebags
  - uh_hed_olda_*.dds - old age, very wrinkly
  - uh_hed_sica_*.dds - generically sick, weird wrinkles from vanilla preserved
  - uh_hed_infa_*.dds - infected with the blight, open sores and bruising

  - Type 1 - full coverage
  - Type 2 - coarser and patchier
  - Type 3 - sparser with defined mustache

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Installation:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Extract the contents of dao_redone_default_replacements.rar to:
    \..\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\packages\core\override\
    
  Only use one of the default_brow&stubble_*.erf files found in the 'Default 
  Brow and Stubble Replacement' folder. Only use one of the default_eyes_*.erf
  files found in the 'Default Eyes' folder.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Custom Default Skins Installation:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  To pick and choose which replacement textures use the ErfEditor.exe in found
  in \..\Dragon Age\tools\ to open default_skins.erf. Delete any variant you 
  dislike, ensuring you delete all of it's textures ending in: 0d.dds, 0dl2.dds, 
  0dl3.dds, 0n.dds, 0nl2.dds and 0nl3.dds. To install just the skin_replacements
  simply delete the 'Default Makeup Replacement' folder.
  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Accessing Extra Skin Textures
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  To use the old age, sick and infected textures during character generation
  add the following to your chargenmorphcfg.xml under <skins>:
  
    <resource name="uh_hed_olda_0d" />
    <resource name="uh_hed_sica_0d" />
    <resource name="uh_hed_infa_0d" />
  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Uninstallation:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Delete either the folder 'Rose's DAO Redone' or the interior folders.
  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Known Issues:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  The shapeshifting models during the fade portion of the mage's tower may 
  appear glitched.
