WHAT THIS MOD DOES

This .MOD will permanently replace the Female Mohawk Mesh. You will have to use texmod to run the textures. The TPF is also included in the download.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Install the .MOD through ME3Explorer and run the .TPF through Texmod. Permanently applying the textures with ME3Explorer will break the transparency stranding.

To use this hairstyle on Shepard, do not forget to edit the following values with Gibbed:
Mesh: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.Hair_Mohawk.HMF_HIR_Mhk_MDL
Hair_diff: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.Hair_Short02.HMF_HIR_PROShort_Diff
Hair_mask: BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO.Hair_Short02.HMF_HIR_PROShort_Diff

If you are new to Gibbed, read ELE's guide on editing hair values here.
If you are new to using Texmod, please read my tutorial.
If you are new to using ME3Explorer, I've written a first time setup guide.
For more questions, visit the official ME3Explorer forums.

UPDATE NOTES

1.1: Fixed some parts of the mesh that were see-through from certain angles.

CREDIT

Much thanks to Apachii from the Skyrim Nexus (ApachiiSkyHair) for providing permission to use and share this hairstyle! =)
The hairmesh is slightly adapted from Apachii's original to fit around the scull and some strands duplicated/moved to fill in the ponytail some more, the texture was recreated using slightly downscaled and rewrapped ME3 hair textures, original alpha used.

OPTIONAL FILES

For those adept at using ME3Ecplorer's Mesh import tools:
I have added the UPK for manual mesh replacement for those that would rather pick which hairstyle to replace. As there are many more hairstyles available for Femshep it is possible to have several at the same time as long as they don't replace the same mesh. This is NOT for the average user and I do not extend support towards the use of UPK files.
