Overview of this article

In the introduction article of "RimWorld" the other day, we introduced mods that change gameplay in particular, but this time we will introduce mods related to hairstyles that greatly affect the appearance of pawns.

Vanilla hairstyle without Humanoid Alien Races (Frawnie). The left is the width of the Average face, and the right is Narrow. In Narrow, the width of the hairstyle is also shortened according to the width of the face.

Vanilla hairstyle with Humanoid Alien Races (Flounie). The left is the width of the Average face, and the right is Narrow. Even with Narrow, the width of the hairstyle does not change according to the width of the face, and there is something like a gap on the side of the face.

In addition, the hairstyle of "RimWorld" changes the width of the hairstyle according to the width of the face (Average / Narrow) in vanilla, but the mod "Humanoid Alien Races (HAR)" which is a prerequisite for adding a new alien race ”, this face-to-face hairstyle change is eliminated (unknown, but probably fixed to the width that fits the Average face). Therefore, examples of environments with and without HAR are also provided.

Rimsenal – Hair pack

"Rimsenal – Hair pack" is " RimsenalIt is one of the mod series that adds various equipment for battle, and it is a mod that adds many hairstyles for women with an atmosphere close to vanilla. Although it is one of the Mod series, it can be used alone. In addition, Japanese Submod " [1.3] Rimsenal – Rimhair Japanese translation added” is also available.

If this mod is used with HAR, the width of the hairstyle will remain Average even if it is a Narrow face, so basically the pawn will look better if used in an environment without HAR.

[SS] Lovely Hair Style

"[SS] Lovely Hair Style" is also a mod that adds many hairstyles for women. This is a hairstyle that is a little more detailed than vanilla. You can also see some (maybe all of them?) hairstyles that you have seen elsewhere.

Ponytail is Kawaii (Continued)

"Ponytail is Kawaii (Continued)" is a mod that adds a ponytail hairstyle. This is also drawn in detail. This mod was previously released and stopped updating " [Add hair][1.0]Ponytail is Kawaii”, another person has made it possible to use it even in the environment of the latest version. The author of "Ponytail is Kawaii (Continued)" seems to be working on many other reprints of mods that were previously released and stopped updating.

Gloomy Hair mk2

"Gloomy Hair mk2" is a mod that adds a beautiful hairstyle with fine details. There are also hairstyles with beards and eyepatch. The author is a mod " NewRatkinPlus " that adds a new race Ratkin with a cute appearance, and the mod " Gloomy Face mk2 " that replaces the pawn's face with an anime-style face (also used in the image above)” is also created.

Hairstyle of this mod without Humanoid Alien Races (GL Twin tailC). The left is the width of the Average face, and the right is Narrow. With Average, the outline of the face protrudes from the hairstyle, and with Narrow, the width of the hair shrinks and it looks cramped.

This mod is probably " Gloomy Face mk2", and when using without "Gloomy Face mk2", it is best to apply it to Narrow's face with HAR inserted.

FE3H Black Eagles Hair/Blue Lions Hair/Golden Deer Hair/Ashen Wolves Hair/Misc Hair

"FE3H Black Eagles Hair/Blue Lions Hair/Golden Deer Hair/Ashen Wolves Hair/Misc Hair" is a mod that adds hairstyles for characters in "Fire Emblem Fukasetsutsuki". All above " Gloomy Face mk2” is specified as a prerequisite mod, but it can be used only with hairstyles without using “Gloomy Face mk2”. However, the hairstyle is very detailed, so if you combine it with vanilla's plain face, it may feel a little strange.

"FE3H Black Eagles Hair" hairstyle without Humanoid Alien Races (FE3H Petra). The left is the width of the Average face, and the right is Narrow. In Average, the outline of her face protrudes from her hairstyle, and in Narrow, the width of her hair shrinks to fit her face, making her look cramped.

These 5 mods are " Gloomy Face mk2", but if you use it without "Gloomy Face mk2", you can use Narrow with HAR in the same way as "Gloomy Hair mk2". Applying it to the face is the most suitable condition.

There are so many hairstyle mods for "RimWorld", but I use the mod above. All of them are characteristic, and it is a good mod that emphasizes the individuality of pawns that tend to have similar appearances.
