and what if I'd like to make let's say miranda face texture but hq. she has it all painted (eyebrows etc.) how should i do this?

You could upscale it, then look for textures or brushes online that would do well for adding more texture and detail to the face ontop of the original (use layer styles like overlay etc). The eyebrows I would likely repaint or touch up by hand, but I’d recommend not trying that without a tablet personally. Make sure you also apply all changes on the diffuse alpha (or physical spec) and her normalmap.
I would avoid using sharpen filters or other filter passes for skin, a lot of HR mods will do this and personally I dislike the look a lot, especially for skin as it makes the pores look messy and unrealistically patterned. Highrezzing existing custom facial textures is in a way more complex than doing ones from scratch if you are looking to preserve and enhance the original look, not break from it.

Hi Ottemis, I'm unsure if you've seen it or not, but I ported over the ME2 Quarian Enviro-suits into ME3, and I'd like to do the Multiplayer models as well. Unfortunately, the visor is a separate material on the mesh, while the MP versions visor is built-in and assigned an area on the texture. Is there any way you would be able to help me with this? If not, just disregard this ask and have a nice day c:

MP armors are always set up differently from basegame as they include helmets and the likes on the same texture. I would assume the MP armor masks the visor on texture with the look directly controlled by the material. You could no doubt make it work by remapping the UV for your mesh to include the visor as well. If you use the same mats for the mesh as the MP armor originally does you should be ok. Obviously this is my best guess as i’d have to actually extract the textures to see what’s going on exactly. Don’t know if that was helpful.

how are you doing hq textures? do you use some program to make normal textures bigger?

I upscale the originals in Photoshop then retexture elements with a combination of using stock texture images and Photoshop brushes.
I also use a pen tablet which allows me to (re)paint certain parts by hand.

I use 3ds max to preview diffuse changes directly on the model, then create the spec and normalmap and test those out using texmod ingame.

what should I do with alpha layer then? it should be whole white?

Ah nevermind, apparently they have no separate transparency alpha. Then it’s probably on the RGB itself. Mass Effect can be a bit of a tit when it comes to dealing with midtones on masks, you gotta keep your lines pretty neat. I’d recommend upscaling if you have issues getting crisp edges.

Also make sure your lashes are not being cropped early by the wrap and they are positioned correctly compared to the originals.

it worked a little.... idea why they are thin as hell?

Prolly an issue with the alpha layer.

hello! can you help me? I'm trying to create eyelashes for femshep but when I make tpf it doesn't work in game. maybe I have wrong code? which are for femshep : eyelashes opac 1 or 2? and what's the code?

I would replace both HMF_HED_PROLash_Opac_M01 (0x7FDDE2BD) and HMF_HED_PROLash_Opac_M02 (0xBD675EF4).
I don’t know which does which top of my head either. If you want to make sure you’re replacing the right one, pull it with Texmod logging mode.
