♡ DESCRIPTION ♡

Custom face model that replaces Female Face #014.
Edited version of the original game model.

May 2023 - Newest Update: "Eluvia"
Remade the entire model from the beginning, with some minor tweaks, in order to fix
weird issues with eyes, eyelashes, eyelids and teeth.
My old files and models were too messed up for any further updates - I had just started to learn Blender.
See changelogs and pictures.

Two animation options: Standard or Stiff
Standard has no changes to facial expressions and animations. Stiff version reduces them. 
Choose only one option.


♡ INSTALLATION ♡

Unzip .pak, .ucas, .utoc files here:
SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Hogwarts Legacy\Phoenix\Content\Paks\~mods
Remove files to uninstall

Troubleshooting
Try these steps if the mod does not show up:

⇢ Manually install mods if you use Vortex
⇢ Make sure you have all 3 file types in your folder: .pak, .ucas, .utoc
⇢ Check for conflicting mods
⇢ Change mod location: "Paks" folder instead of "~mods"
⇢ Change mod priority: Rename file name - first letter "z" to "a"


♡ FAQ AND HOW-TO ♡

1. Checking for compatibility and conflicting mods:
Incompatible mods can cause your game to crash, freeze, or not launch at all. Mods might not even show up.

All custom face models are compatible with any appearance altering mods
- like skin, complexion, hairstyles etc., with different Chunk IDs.

This mod is not compatible with:
Face models that replaces the same number, in this case #014
This includes other mods that in some way modifies the same assets - see their description.
Might conflict with: Female Player Face Fixes by BobG123

Not compatible with mods that uses the same Chunk ID, 214. See the following questions for a solution:

2. How can I check the Chunk ID of a mod?
Most mods will include this in their description or file name.
You can also use this PakChunk Checker by icouldifiwantedto

3. Your mod uses the same Chunk ID as another mod. Can you fix this?
Chunk ID Conflict Manager by icouldifiwantedto to fix any Chunk ID conflicts.

4. Can I change which face model this mod replaces?
No.

5. Can you add this mod as a non-replacer?
No.

6. What is the difference between standard or stiff animations? Which one should I choose?
Standard animations has no changes to your character's facial expressions, it is how the game intended them to be. 
Stiff version is for those who prefer reduced expressive facial animations - less smiling, eyebrow raise etc. 
(Choose one option).

When the game was released, female faces looked different than expected outside of character creation/menu/cutscenes.
In cutscenes and when talking, there were complaints about intense smiling and grinning. Both of this was patched March 8th 2023, 
but some people still prefer a stiff version compared to the original/standard animations. 

7. How can I change the appearance of an existing character?
Character Editor by nathdev (Requires Blueprint Apparate Modloader by Narknon)

8. Issue: My character turns invisible or glitches in cutscenes.

Most likely caused by this mod if you still have it: Curly Hair - Bellatrix Style by Kailiana
