Changing your appearance...

After the game has been started? Is there a way? Console code maybe? Or perhaps a way to edit the save game?

I find it unfortunate that the character creator has such a static light source. You character can look good there but as soon as you get in game with real lighting and shadows your character turns into a beast. Just hoping to avoid a 4th reroll cause my character is but ugly and I've gotten deceny far.

lol it was worse in mass effect, i made tons of characters that looked really cool in the creator but totally disgusting as soon as you saw them in game.

i think dragon age is better, my only complaint is that my guy looks really sad all the time. whenever anyone is talking about anything he is constantly crestfallen. poor man.

in response to your question i dont know, i doubt it

In Mass Effect, everyone I made, ever, looked so horrible confused about everything.

Well, except for Dex. But he was an exceedingly angry Japanese man.

Get the da toolset and use it's morph editor to make the face you want save it with a name you remember, then right click it and choose export to local, then use the toolset to open the save file of the character you want to alter. Go to the player character tab then the appearance tab. In the value box of the last entry (morph something or other) put in the name of the morph file with a prefix for race/gender (hm = human male, dm dwarf male, em = elf male, hf human female, etc.) so if the file was called, say, joe and it was a human male you'd put in hm_joe.

Awesome! You've saved people with OCD everywhere =P.

This is the first thread I've been able to find where someone had a solution.

Here's a handy shot of the save game file so you know where to input the file name as my explanation isn't the best:

Remember to save the file afterwards, and of course back up the save file you intend to use if you value it at all.
Also, don't name your new head morph something generic, it is saved into an override folder and might replace some in game NPC head if it has the wrong name, be warned.
