Better Looking Garbs is a portrait overhaul mod combining portrait DLC and custom new material to add diversity in clothing and styles for many of the games cultures. The faces, clothing, hair and beard-styles of each source has been recombined to create new portraits.
These new portraits fill the holes still unserviced with cosmetic DLC and add gradations to the existing portrait sets.
In addition to the portraits there are updates to the army and councillor avatar models.
While based around the use of DLC assets these are not required, an installer will add dependent parts of the mod selectively.

The installer will selectively add DLC dependent files and compatibility add-ons to the mod based on your installation.
  1. Open Documents/Paradox Interactive/Crusader Kings II/mod/
  2. Extract only the file betterlookinggarbsinstall.exe (Windows) or (Linux/Mac).
  3. Run betterlookinggarbsinstall.exe or "bash".
  4. Repeat the installation when the mod is updated to a newer version.

If you use overhaul mods or want to customize BLG, you can find the add-on submods inside; Extract the pair of a .mod file and directory to use it.

@Jaime Lannister: Multiple portrait overhauls will be incompatible.
@benedu3095: I don't think there is a noticeable performance difference. The no disease effect submod removes the various effect graphics.

Hey man great mod. Quick questions: This mod doesn't decrease performance right? How can I remove the visual effects of traits such as depressed, stressed, etc.

Is this mod compatible with the Portrait Compilation Mod?

Thanks a lot.

In common/defines/zBLG.lua, remove the PORTRAIT_ADULT lines.

Is there a simple way to restore vanila's portraits of children?
G.Strategos 21 พ.ค. @ 3:39am 
Good to know. I haven't seen anything unit related in interface, so I though just deleting the gfx folder would suffice. But I'll recheck. I'm using another Unit submod, that's why I'm trying to eradicate any issues. Thanks for the quick reply!

The hungarian portraits are in interface/portraits_hungarian.gfx, you can change the non-headgear serbsouthslavic to ugric.
The unit changes are around interface too, unfortunately those don't have consistent names.

@Nendur I have 2 questions:
1)Could you please tell me how to revert vanilla portraits (faces) for Hungarians? it's kinda weird but unique, so I'd like to give them a go. Just for testing.
2) All the Unit pack changes you made are in gfx/models right? So if I want to remove them, I should only delete this specific folder ?

could you make the andals in the agot submod use the frankish gfx?
