>.< Someone please help me with this... Iíve been trying to convert a hair from adult female to adult male. Itís all done except that the teen male version has weird problems around the hairline; itís as if the teen male scalp is mapped in a different way from the adult one.

There was a gap in front of the ear, and the neck and scalp textures didnít line up properly, even though they were fine for the Adult-Elder age groups. So I checked some EA TM hairs with scalp and face textures:

Same result :/ The area around the ear is distorted. I took out all my CC, but it didnít make any difference. Please could someone tell me: is the teen male hairline supposed to look like that?

Both teen and adult male scalps are uvmapped bad arround the ear and there is indeed a diffrence between the 2.....
You might want to edit the teen scalp lods and make a replacement identical to the adult?

Had a quick look at them and updated lod0 and lod1 from the teen, see if this fixes it.
They are identical as the adult now(arround the ear that is :) )

Wow. What have you given me?... It's two UV maps and I need to apply them to the TM scalp? Right, I'm off to learn about UV mapping, then :) Thanks, Bloom!

No, its the 2 teen scalp meshes with fixed uvmaps(lod0 and lod1)
Its a default replacement, put it in your packages folder.

When i checked the teen and adult i was already halfway.
So i extracted the adult uvmap and used it to update the very high and high detail teen scalp meshes.

Ah, I get it... OK, I've tried it out now and it hasn't done anything :/ The TM scalp looks exactly the same as it did before.
