Description
THIS IS FOR THE WAR OF THE CHOSEN EXPANSION

This mod is a dependency for my Star Wars Alien Head Pack series, but is also free to use independently for anyone that requires blue/red/green/etc. skinned soldiers. It provides two sets of base heads with extended skin colours, one with bright colours and one with darker colours. It also includes invisible heads. The heads are available for both male and female, under Caucasian/Race 0.

This has been split out from my other mods so as to avoid including the same content in multiple mods.

Notes:
If you are importing characters from a pool that used the legacy/base game version of the mod, those customisations will be broken in this version of the mod. The two different versions of the game have necessitated unavoidable changes to part template names to avoid clashes when both versions of a mod are installed. You will have to remake your characters in the editor.

Warning - If you switch from one of the alien heads back to a regular head, it will likely turn black. This is caused by the game trying to reference a skin colour that no longer exists. If you select a new skin colour it will return to normal. This seems to be new behaviour in WOTC caused by various changes that have been made.

The bright colours versions use the eye colour palette to provide a suitable range of appropriate alien skin colours without forcing people to download a 3rd party skin colour mod or adding in my own. If you use an eye colour mod, that will propagate to the base head skin colour options. The dark colours versions use the hair colour palette, and will be similarly affected by any third party hair colour mod.

It should be noted that the eyebrows of both sexes and stubble on the male have been painted out. If you want versions that retain the eyebrows, you can enable these by uncommenting the C and D variants in the XComContent.ini file in the mod's Config folder (\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\1127146685\).

This mod incorporates invisible heads for both males and females. If you don't require these, or already have invisible heads from a different mod, you may wish to comment out their entries in \steamapps\workshop\content\268500\1127146685\Config\XComContent.ini

Chiss eyes for both males and females have been added under both Upper and Lower Face Props. You will likely want to enable the "hairy" head variants to use with them. You may also want to grab an eye colour palette extension mod to increase the available range of blue colourations.

Glowing (possibly a little too much) Psi eyes have also been added under both Upper and Lower Face Props.

Acknowledgements:
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.

Great mods btw :xcom2sharpshooter:

Can confirm that. Even now, I've just had someone wearing a full Killzone outfit with Clone Trooper parts sticking out. And just about every accessory you can think of.

All cosmetic mods still work. But you should disable them all while playing through the TLP missions, as you don't have any ability to edit appearances so the game will randomly load pieces creating a mess.

Is this mod working with TLP?

Got it now. Small bit, maybe make that bold or something for us idiots :)

As outlined in the description, it only works with Race 0, so make sure you have that selected.

I can not see to get this to work on the females. Am I doing something wrong?

There are no colour palette changes in any of my mods.

Just wondering, after finally getting this mod to work again, I noticed that lost brighter & weirder hair colour palettes. Not sure if it's this mod or another of the many I use. I will have to eliminate them one by one to find out. Just want to know if anybody else has the same problem.

Someone told me that my mods weren't working with the latest version of WOTC, so I updated them all. Turned out to be a false alarm though.
