hmmm well it seems to involve Apachii hair and any mod that requires it
I have gone through each one, and anytime I activate the Apachii esm, NPCRedesign esp, or BBLSapachii esp (all together or all individually) the game will crash as soon as I move the gender selector over to female on any human or elf race, argonians and khajiits remain unaffected.....
This is not good............
However, one thing I did notice is that the Temptress race seems to keep the Apachii hairs even with Apachii.esm not selected (Temptress does not require Apachii according to NMM and Wyre Bash) and as another note, even when Temptressvixen.esp is de-selected the apachii mod and the ones that require it still crash the game as before, so I don't think Temptress has anything to do with it, its just weird that none of the other races retain the Apachii hair with the Apachii.esm deactivated.
as long as ApachiiHair.esm, NPC Redesign.esp, and BBLSapachii.esp are DE-selected, I can choose the female gender with no problems
EDIT: still on the hunt, I de-selected everything and ONLY selected ApachiiHair.esm and I could choose the female gender with it active..........some sort of conflict with another one of those 122 mods......oh joy
EDIT 2: ApachiiHair.esm + Extended Slider Colors.esp = Crash on female gender selection
EDIT 3: ApachiiHair.esm + Unique Region Names.esp + N_43 Hair Pack.esp = Crash on female gender selection (this one baffles me becasue the 3 have to be activated at the same time together for this to happen.....weird!)
Final EDIT: putting ApachiiHair and the Hair Pack together seems to make character selection of females unstable as I found that it definitely crashed with Unique Region Names added in the mix, but it also crashed when all other mods were selected (couldn't figure out the combo problem with that), but it seems that having those two together and a third of some sort (URN 100% of time) it makes it unstable. Also, after taking off only the Hair Pack and Extended Slider Colors, it was still a little unstable, I could choose female, but after a few slider changes here and there, the game would crash when I went to the menu 100% of time.
So be careful with (1) Apachii and Extended Slider Colors (100% crash on female selection), (2) Apachii, URN, and the Hair Pack (100% crash on female selection) and (3) Apachii, the Hair Pack, and some other mods (didn't find exact, but there was definitley still a conflict somewhere) (this one was a little buggy, as I could choose female, but sorting through other races with female selected eventually leaded to crash), and (4) Apachii with a S*** ton of other mods (because it did make the game unstable by crashing when trying to access the menu)
Lots of conflicts there, but after all that I found that simply de-selecting much of the unimportant mods just for the character selection portion is going to work. After character is selected I can re-enable all of them and play normally.....
