Varric Tethras: Inquisition Mesh

Ported Varric's unique headmesh from Dragon Age: Inquisition into Dragon Age 2 with fully functional bones, face animations, and unique face textures including emotions, eyes and hair.

This mod is totally independent of any other mods. All assets are straight from Bioware with the exception of some modifications to their DA2 emotion masks and norm map to fit to the Varric mesh. Varric's eye textures are from Ellise's Unique Companion Texture's Mod.

This mod uses a unique eye and hair mesh/textures for Varric and does not use any tints except for the hair and skin. Also, if you wish to change Varric's hair, it will have to be a hair specially made for this mesh as obviously, existing hairstyles will not fit.

The transfer of the mesh was not entirely seamless so there might be some tweaks that need to be made to account for certain animations.

Additionally, I have included a modified version of Varric's body texture as it will not match up with the new skin.


Open the attached .7z file and extract the file "Varric Inquisition Head - Default Textures" (or Ellise Version) to the following location:

C:\Users\[YOUR USER NAME]\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age 2\packages\core\override\

Only ONE of the two files provided can be used at a time!

(this is the default location, if you have it in a different place, put the file wherever you keep your override)

That's it!
