About this mod

Increases responsiveness/physics of Hairworks hair and increases LOD distance

Permissions and credits
It bothered me how bad the LOD for some of the Hairworks hairstyles was, so I increased it for all of them (including the beard), and modified the physics values to make it more responsive at higher framerates (60+FPS).

Please note: I did not make any changes to the graphical appearance of the hair. I increased the distance at which the game will load a lower-quality LOD for the hair and beard, and modified the physical parameters of the hair.

This mod increases responsiveness of Hairworks hair quite a bit. It might not be to everyone's liking.

Extract with winrar/winzip/7zip, and place "modHWHairPhysics60fpsFIX"  into your "mods" folder in your The Witcher 3 directory. To uninstall, simply delete it.

I noticed another error whereby the beard would disappear at long distances, for example in the Devil By The Well cutscene after investigating the bloodstains inside the house, and Geralt looks to the well. Took a quick look and increasing autoHideDistance to 99 seems to have fixed it.
Use the "Hairworks Beard LOD" file under the miscellaneous files section and install it alongside whichever other file of this mod you're using, and give the beard LOD fix priority over that file.
