About this mod

This is a replacer for Miranda's hair. This is currently for LE2 and LE3. LE3 is in ALPHA stage.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
So I decided I wanted to replace Miranda's hair with one of my  mixtures. I've made it into a DLC in case anyone else wants to use it. 

Thanks to ThaliaGraces this mod is now compatible with (ME2LE) No Headgear for Squadmates.  ThaliaGraces mod will be needed to remove the rest of the LE2 Normandy crew's helmets/visors/glasses. (ME2LE) No Headgear for Squadmates at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com)

Thanks to rondeeno this mod is now compatible with Casual Hubs. Casual Hubs must be installed first. Casual Hubs for LE2 at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com)

Thanks to Marcus22Khaar, beccatoria and their team for making the LE2 community patch and allowing for people to patch their mod with their files. Unofficial LE2 Patch at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com)

And thanks again to ThaliaGraces for taking the time and having the patience to teach me how to make patches. :)

ME3Tweaks Mod Manager is needed for installation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not click on Shepards Cheerleader, No visor, or Beautiful Dame at the same time. To have Shepards Cheerleader version of hair without the visor you must click on both Shepards Cheerleader and Shepards Cheerleader + No Visor. If you want Beautiful Dame version of hair without the visor you must click on both Beautiful Dame and Beautiful Dame + No Visor. 
If you just want the Classy Bun mixture then don't click on anything other than 'install mod.' If you want the Classy Bun mixture without the visor then only click on the 'No Visor' option.
This goes for the LE2 patch versions as well. If you want Classy bun which is Miranda + LE2 patch then click on it and nothing else. If you want the no visor option with LE2 patch then you must click Miranda + LE2 patch AND Miranda + LE2 patch no visor.
To install with Casual Hubs, Hubs needs to be installed first. Then click on the options + LE2 patch of this mod then + Hubs or + Hubs uniform and (optional) + LE2 patch no visor. In that order. 

UPDATE: Miranda Hair Replacers- LE3: This is extremely alpha because I haven't tested it. Not thoroughly enough. I didn't want to post this but with the amount of time I actually get to test my mods, even speeding through it, it'll be sitting there forever. So, for those of you willing to try this out make sure you are aware that you're basically testing this and I appreciate bug reports.

Also it's important to know that the LE3 version will conflict with any mods that replaces the following files. (This is vanilla version, not framework.):
BioD_CerMir_375Lab_vid
BioD_CerMir_550Miranda
BioD_CerMir_750Office
BioD_CitHub_DockP2
BioD_CitHub_Miranda
BioD_CitHub_MirandaT2
BioD_End001_436CRMiranda
BIOG_HMF_HIR_PRO
BioH_Exp3_Miranda_0
BioH_Miranda_CitSim

I have created a version that is compatible with Hair Additions at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com). But you need to install that mod after you've installed this one.

UPDATE: Miranda Hair Replacers- LE3 Framework: This is also extremely alpha. It does have extra hair options that the vanilla version won't be getting due to the fact that it has less files and because I would like to see that the vanilla version is working for people throughout the game. If it does work, then I will probably attempt to do this for that one. The two pictures I posted show what formal down and the down versions should look like (they are the same) and it's only for cheerleader and beautiful dame because I felt the MirandaClass worked fine with Miranda's default hair. If enough people think it would look better with something of my own making comment on it and I will think of making a new hair for it. :)

There is a Hair Additions at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com) that should be compatible but read the description on that first. I trashed Miranda's files so it wouldn't override the framework version. 

UPDATE 2.0 Miranda Hair Replacers- LE2: I have completely gutted this mod and replaced every file for each hairstyle. This shouldn't crash and I'm happy to announce that it works for Miranda's conversation with the illusive man now. I'm pretty certain I know what the issue was with it crashing for the suicide mission, and it simply couldn't be fixed any other way. Please report any bugs or issues. And this now has an option for the LE2 community patch.

Unofficial LE2 Patch at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com) It goes without saying that this should be installed before the + LE2 patch options of my mod as it uses the LE2 patch files.

UPDATE 2.2: Miranda Hair Replacers- LE2: This is now compatible with Casual Hubs. Special thanks to Rondeeno for allowing me to create the patch. :) Casual Hubs for LE2 at Mass Effect Legendary Edition Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com).  

If you have mods with the same files as the Miranda Hair Replacers one will overwrite the other and this one has so many options and files that making patches for it might be too time consuming for other Mod authors. That being said I fully support anyone wanting to patch their mod for this all I ask is that there be a link to the mod in the description and there aren't any problems with permissions and assets concerning your mod. 


To uninstall simply remove the file DLC_MOD_NPCHR from your LE2 DLC folder and DLC_MOD_NPCHAIR from your LE3 DLC folder. I don't think you can uninstall this with the framework. I didn't try it out so I'm not sure. If you use my hair additions mod though and try to remove it that'll make your game unplayable, and you will have to reinstall it.
