[REL/WIP] Morroblivion-OCO2 Facelift v0.2

Morroblivion-OCO2 Facelift v0.2
(for Morroblivion v064)

This mod is a combination of two ESPs which were auto-generated by a TES4Edit reassignment script and some fine-tuning.  It randomly reassigns the 3000+ faces in Morroblivion with one of the custom faces that are stored in the OCO2 plugin.  This hopefully solves the problem of randomized facial features or customized faces which are not visually compatible with the OCO2 plugin.  IMO, the results are quite good and in some instances just stunning.  I went through some of the beginning NPCs and chose the best of faces out of the two ESPs which I generated.  In a couple cases, I vetoed the two reassignment choices and used the original face instead.

TODO:
Play the game thoroughly and make note of all NPCs which need manual correcting.  Please post screenshots of any NPCs (with their FormIDs) which you feel need correcting.  And feel free to share any screenshots of the OCO2 NPCs that you like.

REQUIREMENTS:
Morroblivion v064, Oblivion Character Overhaul v2 (OCO2) and Wrye Bash / Bashed Patch.

INSTALLATION:
This mod should NOT be activated as a regular mod -- otherwise you will be over-riding 3000+ NPC records!  You should use Wrye Bash to import the faces into a Bashed Patch.  Once the Bashed Patch is generated, there should be a purple green dot (with filename in purple font) in the check box for this plugin.  This means that it is working -- Do NOT put a check mark in the box.

CREDITS:
Forgot to thank nuska for the awesome OCO2 mod in the last version!!!  A big thank you to the TES4Edit developers and the script writer who came up with this OCO2 face reassignment script!  And of course, thank you to the Morroblivion developers for their years of hard work to bring Vvardenfel to the TES4 engine.

CHANGE LOG:
v0.1: first release

v0.2: tweaks for Meril Hlaano, Ranis Athrys, Medila Indaren, Ghoragdush, Dralval Andrano


Redguard Facelift: adjusts the base redguard race to be more Redguard-ish.  This will affect all redguard NPCs in the game.

I'm still packaging up a few before and after pictures but this one stood out so much that I was moved to post it early:

I just posted a Redguard

I just posted a Redguard Facelift ESP.  It makes Redguards look more Redguard-ish... or at least my interpretation of Redguards based on TES games, lore and artwork except for Oblivion.  It will work with OCO2 alone even without Morroblivion, but why would you be playing Oblivion without Morroblivion installed?

Where did you find the script

Where did you find the script to randomize faces using the OCO algorithms? I kind of want to do that for Integrated - The Lost Light's NPCs, but...that's a lot of people to manually adjust everything for. -.-

Can someone post more

Can someone post more detailed instructions for making a bash file? I've googled "how to make Oblivion Character Overhaul work with Morroblivion via bash file" but don't get anywhere. I have morroblivion installed and working, and have OCO sitting in a zip file ready to be added, but have no idea how to do it. Have Wyre Bash installed and load order done, like I said Morroblivion run fine, but don't want to get to far into the game if I can get OCO working, with these tweaks here too.

There are two separate

There are two separate installations involved.  First, you must successfully install Oblivion Character Overhaul 2 as a regular mod into Oblivion.  You will also need to install the Blockhead plugin.  Let me know if you are having trouble with this part.

The second installation is the compatibility patch which makes Morroblivion use the OCO2 faces.  To do this:

1. Install "morroblivion-oco2-facelift-v0.2.7z" as a regular mod with Wrye Bash. 
2. It puts "morroblivion-OCO2-facelift.esp" and "OCO2-redguard-facelift.esp" into your Oblivion\Data folder. 
3. From the Wrye Bash "Mods" Tab, drag these two files in your load order, so they are located above your "Bashed Patch.esp" file (it may be named slightly differently, like "Bashed Patch, 0.esp").
4. From the Wrye Bash "Mods" Tab, right-click on the "Bashed Patch.esp" file and select "Rebuild Bashed Patch".
5. You will probably get a popup asking you to disable mods to be merged or imported into Wrye Bash, click Yes or OK.
6. You will then see the Settings window for creating the Bashed Patch.  The default settings should be fine, so just click "Build Patch".
7. Wait for it to finish.  You may see a pop-up asking you to activate the Bashed Patch.  Click Yes.

There are many internet guides on "Building a Bashed Patch".  Just search google or youtube for that phrase.  Here is one that is short and clear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKyIPD4gO2g.  You do not need to follow his instructions, just use it as a visual reference for what you need to be clicking.  Let me know if you have any problems.

Followed your detailed instructions and wola it's working, and no crazy elf face. I didn't realise that "Install" tab was like a full on mod file manager.  I haven't played Oblivion or Skyrim for years, so I've forgotten alot on how to manage all this.  But boy I modded a ton when I did (can't belive nexus still has my mods up lol).

Thanks.

Congrats!  Your load order and bashed patch look good.  I recommend you check out Diana TES GotH'sMorroblivion Overhaul S.T.E.P. Guide: http://wiki.step-project.com/User_talk:Diana_TES_GotH/Morrob....

I'm out of town for a couple weeks so can't give more info right now.
