Description
Nuska's Oblivion Character Overhaul is great. No more potato heads, but OCO still has those immersion breaking neckseams. This mod removes the neckseams that have plagued Oblivion and OCO for so long.


Installation Instructions
I've noticed many people are having trouble with Wrye Bash & satisfying all the requirements so I've made an all-in-1 "FOR IDIOTS" download that's in NMM format. If you're a normal person and not an idiot, use Method 2 instead.

Method 1
: For Idiots
1.
Install Nuska's Oblivion Character Overhaul v2, satisfying all its dependencies.
2. If you have Robert Male installed, uninstall it, completely, all of it. A seamless version will be installed for you.
3. Install the "Idiot" package from this mod's file section.
4. Activate Oblivion_Character_Overhaul.esp and the EVE plugins.

The "Idiot" package contains all stock armors and clothes for vanilla Oblivion + DLC (including Shivering Isles) for:
  • Robert Male v5.2 Muscular
  • HGEC EVE C-Cup Upperbody + Normal Lowerbody (non-BBB)
  • WARNING: Any body replacers and stock armors/clothes replacers you have installed will be overwritten.


Method 2: Recommended - You can customize body shapes
1. Install Nuska's Oblivion Character Overhaul v2, satisfying all its dependencies.
2. Install the BAIN package from this mod's file section.
3. Download and install seamless Male and Female body and equipment replacers.


Method 1 & 2 Common: Optional
Nuska made great head models for the beast races, but for some reason applied strange race presets to them -- like someone stepped on their heads. In order to make Argonians and Khajiits look cool again, go to my Seamless Khats & Args page and follow the instructions. Now with whiskers!


Incompatibilities
Gameplay wise, there shouldn't be any incompatibilities, but some things will cause neckseams, such as:

NPC Tex Tweak
: Unless you've setup your NPCs exactly like Nuska's, don't use NPC Tex Tweak. It will cause neckseams.
Self-Shadowing
: Self-Shadows draw a line between the head and body.

Third party Age-Maps: That add wrinkles, tattoos, facial scars, etc, that isn't overwritten by the textures here.
ini Settings: "bFaceGenTexturing=0" in Oblivion.ini will create neckseams. Make sure "bFaceGenTexturing=1".
