Gray-Face bug in Creation Kit
Working on a mod and realized that npcs would have off-colored faces. Is there a fix in the creation kit for this issue?

Yeah, it's a very common issue.

Bring up the actor in the object list...then click once on the actor to highlight it, then press:

ALT + F4.
CTRL + F4 (thanks for reminding me guys) prompt appears: ''Export face gen data?'', click OK to confirm. Should fix it with any luck :)

There is a way of saving the face gen data from in-game, using the console command: showracemenu

I did this when I made a Khajiit NPC of my Character for my Gf. I ran into trouble; the scars and stripes of the face gen data wasn't exporting to the NPC actor in-game. So I asked around and a friend showed me a link to a solution (unfortunately, I cannot find it at present)

As I can best recall what I did, was entered showracemenu in the console in game, Then made my face gen data, using the in-game presets. I SAVED this and I cannot for the life of me remember what I pressed to save it. This is where I forget what the procedure is....I will try to find it and report back unless you find out ok :)

Once I had named a few saved presets, I went back into Creation Kit, then there's a box on the FaceGen Data TAB that says 'IMPORT'. Click this, then open the file path to the saved data presets done in showracemenu.

click OK, and it will import the data with no more grey face. Silly Bethesda leaving broken software for us to have to sort out.. pshh! BOO!

Let's say somehow I can't properly use Ctrl-F4. Am I screwed or is there some obscure menu entry for me to access the same function?

Pinned topic Hints and Tips page 18 (50 posts per page) I have a fix in there, long read to find, it actually by Spewed a modder who has mods in nexus. Have to use Creation Kit to fix.
If you have Appachii hair on NCPs you have to change their set weight from 50 to set weight = 100 by console command.
