Author's Comments:

This is a framework mod aiming to make Au Ra Female player characters' heads & faces asymmetrical.
It is part of a larger collection of similar mods.

It is intended to be used with asymmetrical face textures and, I hope, will lead users & creators to build their own custom faces including but not limited to scars/scarring, make-up, freckles, beauty spots etc

More races & genders will eventually be added overtime to this large-scale project.

This mod is FREE and is also accessible through Ko-Fi for those who wish to donate.

---------------------CONTENTS---------------------

Main installation includes a choice of modded teeth between
- Vanilla
- IllyBites
- LorFangs
- IllyLor Combo (LorFangs for top teeth, IllyBites for bottom teeth)
as well as texture choices between Vanilla, BW and NGRIJX color variants including Black Sclera options for Xaela faces

Download folder includes a variety of (free) addons for popular scale mods and some of their color variants, such as:
- Ruta Scales (vanilla/BW/NGRIJX)
- NB Scales (vanilla/BW)
- Petit Scorpion Scales (vanilla/BW/NGRIJX)
- MTF Horns (vanilla/BW/NGRIJX)

IMPORTANT NOTE : If using any other custom scale neckline than vanilla and encountering neck seam issues, make sure to install matching neckline textures on Face Material FAC_A prior to installing AsymFaces! (ie original NB faces on material A and AsymFaces NB faces on material B)

More addons (free or not) may be added in future updates.

---------------------TECHNICAL---------------------

This mod adds a new material for Faces (Material FAC_B) in order to support asymmetry & doesn't break Reaper Enshroud eyes.
It will take over any existing face 3D mods or any addons already present on FAC_B.
The 3D heads models do not reference the default Facial Material FAC_A, so it will not show up in Textools anymore upon installing this mod. However, this mod does NOT alter or remove the default facial Material A, nor the connectors for the neck models.
To make it reappear if you so wish, Disable the 3D Model edit temporarily in the Models tab.

Certain parts of the face models have been intentionally left symmetrical to prevent glitches or unsightly appearance, such as:
- irises
- eyebrows & eyelashes
- inside of the mouth
- tongue
- teeth (vanilla only)
They are mapped to the right hand side of the textures provided or to their default texture.

Every other part, including ears, horns or horn accessories is now mapped to be asymmetrical.

THIS MOD IS COMPATIBLE WITH EVERY EXISTING BODY MOD - as it does not affect body textures or models. However, users should make sure their body scales textures match with whatever variants they plan on using, ie NB Body for NB Faces, etc

---------------------KNOWN ISSUES---------------------

- slight seam across the middle of the faces

All issues that presented during development were stemming from vanilla issues and were unable to be resolved.
