Description
THIS IS FOR THE BASE/LEGACY VERSION OF THE GAME

This mod adds Twi'lek lekku (headtails) as a soldier hair option, along with a base head that allows extended skin colours. Includes a number of lekku pattern/tattoo options for both males and females, with additional headdress models for females styled after Mission Vao, Aayla Secura, and Hera Syndulla. In addition, several face tattoos are provided as facepaints.

Skin colour options are available via my SW Alien Head Pack Extra - Base Heads mod, which is a dependency for this mod.



Recommendation:
If you wish to further enhance your experience, you may wish to also download my SW Alien Voice Pack.

Notes:
The lekku use custom physics, so they move about in the same manner as hair like ponytails. I may need to adjust some of the values, as well as increase the subdivision of the lekku meshes in a future update. Note that they have no collision except with each other, so major clipping with the body, and weapons like swords and grenade launchers, can and will occur. I tried to implement collision with the body, but I couldn't get it to work. I've tried to keep the lekku far enough off the back to provide space for armour and limit the worst of it. Also, in some instances the lekku will jump up after certain transitions, like exiting the promotion/level up screen on return from a mission. It seems like this is caused by the physics being deactivated and then reinitiated. I'm not sure if that is avoidable or not. If anyone experienced with editing Physics Assets is interested in lending a hand to attempt resolving some of these issues, let me know (and there are some unused physics/meshes in the mod's assets UPK if you want to have a look).

I had wanted to have males not use any headdress, but it was impossible to get a seamless transition between the forehead of the base head and the lekku meshes. Thus I repurposed the headband prop to hide the join. I had planned on a Darth Talon option, but as she has no headgear that's a no-go at this stage. The only option would be to go the full custom-head-as-helmet route, which may not be great given my kindergarten-level skinning ability, but I will consider it for a future update.

The textures are a bit rough. The source textures for the lekku were only a dismal 512x512, so there wasn't much to work with. Aayla and Mission's headdress textures are custom ones made by me but are very simple, just some basic leather with a mild touch of wear.

Acknowledgements:
Original mesh and texture content derived from the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO (lekku meshes and skin/tattoo textures) and Knights of the Old Republic (Mission's headdress mesh). All rights belong to EA/Bioware and Disney.

I learned a lot by poking through the contents of other people’s mods, such as [GWJ] Kexx and Dor, to see how things worked, as well as reading various tutorials and forum/Reddit posts by the likes of E3245. Many thanks to them and the rest of the X2 modding community for their help, direct and indirect.

Enemies in some pictures are from DerBK's A Better ADVENT 2 mod. Content not included in this mod.

Background characters in some pictures feature elements of [GWJ] Kexx's various Mass Effect mods. Content not included in this mod.

The whim struck me, so a Hera lekku option has been added. Pic uploaded to the slideshow.

A Hera Syndulla hair option would be nice

@DrDCB Oh god thanks for letting me know that!

That's only the barebones option. The full content version with all the packages (enabled under betas) is over 50GB.

@DrDCB When I downloaded WOTC SDK it was only 1.5GB

Will you also do a togruta-head-pack? That would be amazing
DrDCB  [author] Aug 30, 2017 @ 9:25am 
No, all my mods will need separate WOTC versions. Seeing as that requires a whole other 50GB SDK, it will be a while.

Tell me, does it work with WOTC? I need my pretty twi'leks back in squad.
