Tired of your character looking like a gorilla got gene-spliced with Bruce Willis? ME TOO.

Unfortunately, I can't perform miracles. However, through the power of Photoshop and contouring, we can at least get a step or two in the right direction!

This mod updates the basic textures of the human male player, including the normal map, ambient occlusion and roughness maps.

This is my first ever time making a Steam Workshop mod, so apologies if anything unexpected goes sideways. My hope is that because it's a fairly small cosmetic mod, there's fewer opportunities for errors, but hey technology loves being weird.

Based on other mods along this line, I'm going to recommend that you set this mod as the top of your list since it modifies the player pawn.


Update 1/23/19: Fixed a hair physics bug, weird white implant icon, and cleaned up the mod files


"I could make a mod like this WAY BETTER."
Oh gosh, PLEASE DO. Seriously. I only made this because I spent DAYS scouring the net for any sort of player model updating mod. Please, I would love to see someone with actual 3D modelling/mesh editing skills take a proper crack at the male faces.

To help out, if you'd like to try your hand at a better version of the mod, here are the TARGA images I created[], free with my blessing.

Thank you, I just saw this and I have been scouring the web as well and nada. It's really unbelievable that the Ark devs left out at least some choices in faces if not customization. Don't they play these games? lol

what this game needs is a sim character generator - true?

This looks awesome - I avoided playing male characters because they are ugly and look like blocked he-men - I would like to slillm them down to reality size with no blocked faces - tks for this mod - we can only hope it gets better with time and more mods

combine your mod with naturalism 2 would be more than perfect absolutely necessary since the 2 need priority, you should talk to the creator of naturalism 2 to create a mod so combining them and make the creation of the most acceptable character

Any thoughts on doing the rest of the skin textures? I mean, really, you would think that by the time you can build pipes and have plumbing these characters would grab a sea sponge and scrub the dirt off lol.

Works fine for me and it's AWESOME! No more gorilla-faced cavemen, no more cowering the ugliness with paint to make it at least somewhat bearable!

Anyone figure out why this mod will sometimes not work? It doesn't seem to work for me at all.
