Awesome! Thanks for the pm, iNTERBRED. I appreciate that.

As far as colors go, I recommend looking around and seeing what kinds of colors are out there - if you want to. I think you have accommodated the majority of beards out there with the two colors you have offered so far.

Keep up the great work. I look forward to future versions.

The Golden Rule: Do to others as you would have done to you.

Hey fantastic mod!

I have no idea how RV4 handles alpha channel, but is there a reason why you're not using it to create the effect of strands of hair? If RV4 does support alpha channel to be used on faces then you should definitely take advantage of it.

thanks man and the reason is because I hadnt thought of it :P

Added 7 minutes later:

right then to those who dont believe this is my work here are some of the WIP of the beard, now admittedly i have little imagination and just reproduced the beards that I saw in medal of honor, but at no point did i rip them
old 5 minute beard (started with this) http://gyazo.com/29850b1108312e7a06fada59be63a807
tidied the "bushiness" of the beard, halved it and beginning to sort the normals out http://gyazo.com/725808f1718fd71f561fef056a803534 starting to take shape smoothing it all out http://gyazo.com/46467241df3109743591be285c6fc63a http://gyazo.com/26b0df90d865f1e647a42e75860ad11e decided to remove most of the depth on the beard and just use normal maps, i also started the unwrap http://gyazo.com/897e8f2e718dc482e23839a90883a07e used the mirror technique and it now of course looks like a beard instead of a erm well i dont even know what that was before http://gyazo.com/73372d88b798a8ff95252514de36e4a4 using the armarig i lined it all up and made it a better shape http://gyazo.com/3b182b47f7f35bb34a7bcb253e8cd9a1 and then thats all i have on my pc although the rest might be on a memory stick somewhere...

An Alpha map will make it look a million times better.

This is an old page from Unreal on their beard creation process for Gears of War, but it's still very useful http://udn.epicgames.com/Three/CreatingHairUsingAlpha.html

I believe you have to set the .rvmat to properly make use of the alpha map.

This guy does hair in a similar way to that link on Gears of War hair does, at least as far as I can tell.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_ZmuKt_yp8

Dunno if that will help at all. I found that video a few weeks ago when I was inspired to get into 3d modelling after seeing your awsome beards. I've got a ways to go yet, I hope I can get up to your level mate. I wanna make some scruffy hairdoos too. Anyway, hope that link helps, if you haven't seen it already.

as shown in pictures, you need to make the wearable item for example the glasses into night vision.
