- Introduction :

After spending countless hours developing and updating my mods, I decided to take a break so I could breathe and enjoy the new creations of my fellow modders. Yes, the time had come to start a new game. Let's hurry to get out of that vault, I want to see and test all the new features I missed all this time. That's it, we are finally out of there. Wait, I forgot to adjust my character traits, let's load the last save in which I was still in the vault. Ok, now we are going to change some... WHAT THE HELL IS THAT RUSTY FACE OF YOURS?! That's been three years now and this is still an issue? Alright, f*ck this new game, I still have work to do.

The purpose of this mod is to fix a common bug that makes the player's and NPCs faces turn brown when reloading a savegame.

Question: Do I have to do something special once the mod is installed?
Answer: No, the mod is completely autonomous, you have nothing to take care of.

Question: Does it have an impact on performance?
Answer: No. The game will not even notice that the mod is installed. But you and your character will.

Question: Is this compatible with my other mods?
Answer: As long as you play as an humanoid, it should work with everything.

Question: What about the load order?
Answer: It doesn't matter at all, put it where you want.

Question: Does this fixes the issues with the Official HD Texture Pack (or custom face textures)?
Answer: No, this only fixes a 3 years old game engine bug that occurs when you reload your savegame.
Texture fixes can be found on the nexus.

Question: How does it work?
Answer: The ChangeHeadPart function is used each time a savegame is loaded to refresh the player's and NPCs neck part.
By doing so, the whole actor face is refreshed and the "rusty face effect" disappear.
