Hi all, I'm new here and I don't actually have Oblivion on my PC. My 9800pro is damaged, causing major artifacts in 3d applications. I did manage to install Oblivion on my dads computer and it runs fine on medium detail. I ordered a 7900GT and new motherboard today so I should be able to play Oblivion in the next few weeks.

I am new to the Elder Scrolls series and love Oblivion. I noticed you can spend a lot of time creating your character at the start. I have a program installed called FaceGen Modeller 3.1.2 and I understand this program was used to create the faces in Oblivion... am I correct?

I have made many faces in FaceGen (purely for learning purposes) such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and many random male faces I found on Google. I am quite impressed with FaceGen, it is really a clever peice of software. Now my question... I can save faces I created in FaceGen as .fg files but is it possible to import these into Oblivion? If so, how would I do this?

Thanks for reading and thanks for any help! :)

I don't know the answer but it would be cool if you can do that. If you find out you can do it, you'll have to post the faces you've collected. That would be fun to play around with.

As of right now, you cannot import facegen files into Oblivion. The best you can do is compare the sliders and make them about the same. The sliders in both programs are almost exactly the same so I'm sure you can get them close. I'm sure in the future we will see some type of mod for this though.

Have you tried using the construction set ? It uses a much better point and click interface to adjust the facial features rather than the sliders. I remeber there was a method to open savegames inside the editor but I might be wrong

Sure I'll share the faces I made with you all if I can get this to work with Oblivion, no problem :)

Oh really? Adjusting each slider would take ages but if this is the only way, then so be it. Could someone make a mod for this? I know there are some very skilled people here.

I only have FaceGen modeller, I dont have the contruction set. Can you give me a free download link for it? Or maybe you have it yourself and you would be so kind to send me a copy?

I don't know if anyone knows how to do this but what is the best way to edit the sliders in the Oblivion Construction Set? I can't seem to find my way around this thing?

There was some huge thread in the mod section at the official forums about it a while back. I know someone came up with a way to do it pretty damn accurately, but I can't recall how easy it was to pull off. I'd search the mod forum section over there.

There is a way to do it, I have a friend who did a few and posted them for DL, but you still have to do a bit of tweaking with the sliders, I dont remember everything though, you would have to go digging up on the forums.

There is a way, or was, because It hasn't worked for me with the last patch. It's called Focon (http://www.tessource.net/files/file.php?id=4158). I know it worked for me after patching the game, but now it doesn't. Still, you should give it a try.

It is possible because I have done it with emperor Palpitine's head, just can't remember how exactly, I think you import the head into a head.nif file, then load that into Construction Set.
Might need to use Max or Blender, I just can't remember because I did it a long time ago, just as a test to make sure lip-sync worked, and it did. So don't listen to anyone who says it's impossible because it's actually very easy. Sorry couldn't be more help.

Maybe these websites have the answer:

- "...save the generated face as an FG file. Then, using Zennorious' FaceGen to Oblivion Converter, apply the FaceGen file to an existing Oblivion save game. It's also useful to have Oblivion Face Exchange Lite so you can edit the hair style, transfer faces from one save game to another, and so forth."
