100% working Dawnguard patch

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

you may have seen something like this on many mods that make you think that simple change of female human heads to vampire heads will fix this but does not really work the reason is that Dawnguard.bsa forces the heads back to the unly ducken head and color. what you may need to do is make a patch or a mod that will replace the dawnguard head with Custom body head Like cbbe Unpb,Unp or any custom body. this is a very techi like how to fix this but it long and hard. but may it into easy steps . with paths to follow. . oh should note that you USKP patches for the dawnguard and other dlc must be remove for this two work

 

. . not my english is not good sorry in advanced

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Alright let get start

 

 

 

---------------------------------------------------

update and fix

---------------------------------------------------

 

Step one .

 

Find a custom body like CBBE V3 Or UNPB tbbp body ...............any custom body will work long as it has custom head.

 

 

 

 

 

Once install your custom body. move on two step two of this how to

 

 

Step two

 

ready or not. once you have the body installed you need to go into folder and find the heads you need to delete/rename/replace.

 

you be looking for this path

 

Data\textures\actors\character\female

 

 

 

 

delete the following files if you found them
- femaleheadvampire.dds
- femaleheadvampire_msn.dds

then 'copy' the following files from the same folder
- femalehead.dds
- femalehead_msn.dds

then paste it on your desktop or a folder where you it is

then rename them from:
- femalehead.dds -> femaleheadvampire.dds
- femalehead_msn.dds -> femaleheadvampire_msn.dds

 

place them back into your custom body folder

 

Calientes Beautiful Bodies Edition -CBBE-\textures\actors\character or data\textures\actors\character\female

 

 

Step 3

 

this is the hard part of this how to fix thingy. about to get techi......

 

Let talk little about the following BSA. Dawnguard.bsa Has a folder with vampire heads . bsa is telling the game to force load the face gen from dawnguard.bsa giving youthe head with ugly duckly and the npc around you . there is a way around to fix this...

 

what you need to do is unpack the Dawnguard.bsa with an tool like BSAopt . once it download open the file.

 

 

from there you need to find the bsa in your data folder of skyrim

 

Data\Dawnguard.bsa

 

Now unpack the bsa make sure you unpack in a other folder where you can find. will take little bit of time to unpack Dawnguard. bsa

 

 

 

Dawnguard\Data\Textures\actors\character\female

 

 

Detete these

- femaleheadvampire.dds
- femaleheadvampire_msn.dds

 

Replace these with from your custom body path

 

Dawnguard\Data\Textures\actors\character\female

 

 

- femaleheadvampire.dds
- femaleheadvampire_msn.dds

 

(make sure you say Yes to so will be overwriten)

 

Step four! almost done.

 

 

 

 

 

you could detele other folders other then the ones you wanted to have . that way you could make a Dawnguard Patch out of the custom body heads. oh make sure you name like Unpb Dawnguard patch or CBBE Dawnguard patch

 

Dawnguard\Data\Textures\actors\character\female

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Step five! patch time!

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

once you have your new custom dawnguard patch folder you just made . you need to used program like winrar or Zip 7. to zip or packed back into a file you can use.

 

now you need mod manger like NMM or Mod Organizer or wirebash to install the new dawnguard patched . move the patch under Dawnguard.bsa

 

the Load order should be something like this

 

Dragonborn.bsa

Dawnguard.bsa

Heartfire.bsa

Calientes Beautiful Bodies Edition -CBBE- or any custom body mod

CBBE- Dawnguard patched

 

Lauch the game!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

you are now done!

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Step 6 optional not lored friendly

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

if you really want to make your npc and player look very sexy. you need few things to make them look better fisrt up you need VTF- Vampire Texture Framework . so you wont be getting neck seem. next up is Porcelain Pale Vampire Skin For Females and Males -Most Body Types Supported- make sure you get the body type texture you need

 

Now Installed VTF- Vampire Texture Framework. once your done with that you need to find the folder patch for VTF- Vampire Texture Framework

\Porcelain Skin- CBBE Basic\data\textures\actors\character\character assets\tintmasks\

\Porcelain Skin- CBBE Basic\data\textures\actors\character\female\

VTF- Vampire Texture Framework\data\textures\VTF\

 

after your done the folder path should look like this

 

VTF- Vampire Texture Framework\textures\actors\character\character assets

VTF- Vampire Texture Framework\textures\actors\character\female

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried to do this, but it didn´t. Using 7b with fair skin (+EEO and BWarmaidens). Well I saw some vampires with correct skins and others with a darker face color. BM probably overwrites something, I don't know. Skin textures works just great, until any of the npcs gets turned into a vampire. Starting to give up soon, would very much want to fix this, just don't know what to do. At least in CK everything should be correct, but still just doesn't seem to come out correct.

 

Any tips or ideas? Could always simply make the follower vampire from start. Though I don't know how to add the hair,eyes, brows etc for the face. CK says things are missing or some error about the face tri, so the preview isn't as it is in game. Would exporting still work as intended or would it screw up the face export?

 

edit: noticed I seemed to have necroed this thread a bit, still help would be much appreciated!
