As we all know this has been done by santa before and he isn't sharing, that's perfectly fine, but i don't accept that only he and his friends should have something that's freely available on the internet, so i'm requesting it.

Hair isn't the same. Anyway, short guide:


You'll need these programs.
1. The Sims 3 Workshop
2. S3pe Package Editor
3. If you only have .sims3packs, then you'll need Sims 3 Pack Multi-Extracter to extract the packages from the files.
4. The Conformulator
5. .tri head files to be used for The Conformulator


Step 1:
Run Sims 3 Pack Multi-Extracter. Select folder containing the .sims3packs you wish to extract, then select the destination. Finally, click extract. You will now have a .package file in the destination folder.

step1oy.jpg

Step 2:
Install and Run The TSR Worksop. Click on New Project.

step2op.jpg

Click on New Import. Click Next.

step22.jpg


Click on Browse. Locate folder with the package file you need. In the lower right hand corner, change file type to .package and select your package file. Then Click Next.

step23.jpg

Don't need to give a project names, since you're not saving anything, so click next.

step25.jpg

At the finished page, click OK.

step26p.jpg

Meshes will Load. Now click on the Mesh tab in the upper right hand corner.

step27.jpg

Make sure hair is set to Very high level of detail on the drop down menu, then select the export button to the right.

step28w.jpg

Make sure you save as a wavefront object. You now have the hair in a format that you can load into any 3d program for editing

step29.jpg

On the mesh tab, under the group 0, click on the ellipses
button on the ride sight on the materials section for handy information you may need later.

step292.jpg

step293.jpg

Step 3:
Install and run S3pe. Go to File -> Open, and select the package file needed.

step3n.jpg

Hit ctrl+A to select all files. Go to resource tab at the top --> Export --> to file... It is recommend you make a separate folder for organization. Choose destination path.

step31.jpg

You're going to be looking at the .dds files to find the diffuse and specular textures. The workshop has the information. More than likely you need to make new normals.

morestep.jpg

diffuse

step32.jpg

specular

step33.jpg

Rename/save the proper textures files for your convenience.


Step 4:
Import the .obj into your blender or max. I don't want to get into editing as it varies depending on what modeling program you use. When you're done, you to export the finished mesh as both a nif and obj for The Conformulator.

step4k.jpg

morestepp3.png

Run the Conformulator. For the first box, use the appropaite race .tri file provided by the file skyrim nexus. I use femalehead.tri for nord races.

step41m.jpg

Next, select the obj you exported from blender or max. Must have only one tri shape per obj.

step42.jpg


Set Tri options to Full, and click on conformulate.

step43.jpg

Grab the generated .tri and place it along side the .nif file you exported.

Step 5:
Assuming you want to use Apachii's method, you need to make a hairline for the hair as well. They will have different alpha properties. Just load up one of Apachii's and the hair you're working with in Nifskope.

For you hair.nif
1. set BS Num UV Sets to 4097 if they aren't already under nitrishape data

2. Change Has Vertex Colors value to yes if it isn't already.

morestep2.jpg

3. Go to BSDIsMemebrSkin block, expand the partition section, and chande body part number 131. Just click in the text box and type in 131.

sstep56.png

4. Remove BSshaderlightingproperties and stencil from the nif.
5. Copy and paste Apachii's BSshaderlightingproperties and Nialphaproperties to the hair.nif

sstep5.png

*6. I make a habit of facing normals of all trishapes and updating tangents afterwards. Right-click on each nitrishape --> Mesh --Face Normals.

sstep51.png

Click on Spells at the top. Then Batch --> Update All Tangent Spaces.

sstep52.png

5. If you to know what BSshader settings to use refer to the tsr workshop. The RGB values are out of 255 so 127 / 255 = .498.

sstep53.png

6.Load in the proper textures for your nif under BsShaderlightingproperties. Save nif.

7. Load one of Apachii's Hairline nifs. Remove the the BS and Niaplha blocks from your hair nif again and replace them with appachii's. Replace the gloss, specular, and textures settings to with the proper ones. Save as hairLine.nif.

sstep54.png

sstep55.png

Step 6:
Go to your mesh folder, and make a copy of the .tri file generated earlier.

sstep6.png

Rename the new .tri to match your hairline nif.

sstep61.png

Step 7:
Load up the creation Kit. If your making a new plugin, then only load skyrim.esm. Head over to head parts section under character.

sstep7.png

Create a new or edit an existing hair for main hair. Basic settings for main Hair part.

sstep71.png

Create a new or edit an exist hair for hairline. Basic settings for all extra hair parts. Make sure is extra part is checked and type is Misc.

sstep72.png

All extra parts must added to main hair. Go back and edit main hair record. Right click in the empty space in the Extra Parts section and select New.

sstep73.png

Select All extra parts the go with the hair.

sstep74.png

When you're done click ok.

sstep75.png

Do a File ---> Save to save your plugin. Give it a name if it is a new plugin.

sstep76.png

Step 8:
Enable plugin. Test in-game.

I don't remember if bsshaders have double sided flag enabled for hair. I use it all time the time but it can mess up some hairs, so turn off the flag for all nifs if the hair looks messed up.

Thanks Endiness' date=' trying to find all the info i needed proved to be more annoying than i thought it would, and also for the normal map. :D

I tried to set the hair so it sits on top of armour but that kind of depends on the armour :s

 

Report any changes/fixes that need doing.

 

 

Looking good. :)

 

Thanks :cool:

Amazing Tutorial Endiness :),

im trying to convert one hair but it wont appear in game,i guess im screwing something in my .tri file , i used the FemaleheadSkinnyMorphOnly.tri in the conformulator, could be this the problem? you said to use the respective race .tri file, but my race dont have any, and when i try using the femalehead.tri it wont let me generate the file :s

Is biped slot 131 for hair in nifskope?. I just set the number in max now' date=' so maybe It's something I need to mention. Please read this page again to make sure you have everything set up properly for the conformulator.

 

Thanks for answering, when you ask if i biped the slot 131, you are refering changing it in the dismemberskininstance right? if it is, yes i did. I am using blender, maybe there's something when exporting the obj i need to change, but i dont have any ideia wath it could be.

Maybe im fucking something while messing with the mesh in blender, there's a way to know if its my nif file or the .tri file the problem?

it is possible that someone can help, try lowering the programs that appear in the mini guide but I can not download them all because I have no the games (oblivion) and I am too lazy to install it just for this. and, i dont understand this programs

 

It would be too much to ask that someone could get this hairstyle, in black,

Thanks for this, though since you didn't include an esp that led me to try and figure out to add the hair myself in the CK. I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong, got it to show up in game but it doesn't have any textures. I've got no clue what to do from here, searched for nearly an hour and found nothing. :\ Could anyone enlighten me?

oh my bad, i forgot to add sub folders, add a subfolder called peggyhair on both textures and meshes then put the files there.

If it still dont show any texture, try editing both nif files under "BSshadertextureset" and change it to the right path.

Yep changing the folders around got the texture! Thanks! I completely forgot that's how textures are actually put on something.. lol I've completely forgotten everything I knew about modding :P Only thing I've noticed is that it's kind of transparent on the right side? Not that big of an issue, it's more visible in certain lights/angles, but just figured I should say so, in case I somehow did something. Thanks for the hair!

I know there's some cliping on the back side, but nothing to do with transparence.

Strange, it seens to be a hairline problem, did you configure the hairline correctly in the ck? see if someone else have the same problem.

Along with forgetting how to mod it appears I've forgotten how to read, I had read the peggyhairHl as peggyhairHi, I had assumed it was like a version of the hair that was raised a little to reduce clipping or something. :P Realised it was the hairline and got everything together shortly after! It works perfectly now, thank you again! :D
