    Yes, it's me, crawling out of the woodwork to say that the reason I've been silent these past few years is because I lost all my modding files in a computer meltdown several years ago, and at this point I don't even remember HOW I made these mods, and the toolshave continued to evolve to the point where if I tried, I'd have to learn all over again.

    Alas, yes, this means the project with the Hair in the CC was never completed. Sorry.

    Since all the textures and meshes, etc, came from other modders, there is no need to ask me for permission to use them (track down the original author if you can and clear it with them.) I'd highly recommend waiting until AFTER Legendary Edition comes out, however, because God knows what that is going to do to our mods.

    Hello there!

    If you (like many others on this thread including myself) had difficulties installing due to an invisible Shepard who was stuck in the floor, there is a solution! I was tearing my hair out over this mod until a very kind and intelligent user a couple posts down pointed out the error located in the "BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO_HAIRMOD.Hair_PROCustomCute.HMF_HIR_PROCus tom_Cute_MDL" value that's meant to replace the head mesh.

    If you look closely, you'll note an extra space between "ProCus" and "tom_Cute" in the latter part of the value. This is due to a formatting error in the PDF instruction file. Just delete the space between (or copy this: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO_HAIRMOD.Hair_PROCustomCute.HMF_HIR_PROCustom_Cute_MDL) and your Shepard will have the hair of your choice with minimal frustration.

    Shoutout to user fgvbrt for noting this in the replies of zardon34's comment! I wanted to make the solution its own post so other frustrated users wouldn't have to scour the cracks and crevices of this forum for a solution.

    Hi! I know this mod is years old but I recently started using it and encountered some problems getting it to work properly and thought I'd mention how I resolved them in case anyone else still needs help!
    I had ALOT previously installed and this will not affect it or its textures

    BLACK NECK/FACE PATCHES:

    Go to Documents > Bioware > Mass Effect 3 > BioGame > Config
    Make a copy of 'GamerSettings' and change the name of the copy to something like 'GamerSetting_BackUp'
    Right click on the original file and select 'Properties'
    Uncheck the box that says 'Read-only' then 'Apply'
    Open the file and delete the following line
    TEXTUREGROUP_Character_Diff=(MinLODSize=512,MaxLODSize=4096,LODBias=0)
    Save, close the file and open 'Properties' up again
    Check 'Read-only' then 'Apply'
    IF THIS DOESN'T WORK - try deleting different lines beginning with 'TEXTUREGROUP'. Use the back up as a guide to replace deleted lines. DO NOT EDIT THE BACK UP ITSELF

    INVISIBLE/OUT OF BOUNDS SHEPARD:

    When installing via Gibbed Save Editor using the instructions in the PDF provided, there is a formatting error in the code you need to insert for 'Hair Mesh' as it creates a space in the text.
    For FemShep, the correct code is
    BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO_HAIRMOD.Hair_PROCustomCute.HMF_HIR_PROCustom_Cute_MDL
    For BroShep, the correct code is
    BIOG_HMM_HIR_PRO_R_HAIRMOD.Hair_FormalSpikes.HMM_HIR_Fsk_MDL

    Hope this helps! I've loved the mod ever since :)

      hi, you'll never see this because nexus doesn't send notifications like that but-- thank you! deleting the texturegroup_character_diff solved the problem I had with my hair mod (black neck, etc). honestly thank you for posting this comment, I'm immensely grateful to you.

      I don't think I have the same issue, but do you think you can figure out why my hair mod is giving some blood stains and grime on my body? The head looks perfect but my arm is injured like the ending of the game. Without the hair mod its fine.

    Can you do the braid from Legendary? If you could do that one hairstyle, I would not even play the Legendary but the Trilogy. Please.

    Anyone able to port this to Legendary edition? The author for this mod said they don't remember how to do it. We *need* more male hairstyles in the games.

      hi, you can't use ME mods for LEME! you'll have to wait until someone ports it or creates their own version for Legendary!

    Is there any way to get these hairs on the default, 'jane' shepard? When I go into the save editor nothing shows up under texture parameters.

    Just wanted to say Thank You So Much! 

    I detest the custom hairs and I've tried so many hair mods and none worked (mainly because I'm a noobie) but this worked wonderfully and my femShep looks *chef's kiss*

    I know I'm not likely to get a response here, but if anyone passing by happens to know why this is happening I'd appreciate it. Go to the link below:

    I started having this issue the mod hairs and even the regular default hairs. Even after a complete reinstall, this is still happening. Would anyone maybe know why? Thanks

    I had a couple of odd problems with the GPG mods. They've always worked for me before, but all at once, I don't see the hair. I just see a shaved head. I've checked my edits to Gibbed, and they're just what they should be. Do  you have any suggestions?
