XPS Tutorial- Adding Heads to New Bodies by aydean XPS Tutorial- Adding Heads to New Bodies by aydean
[DOWNLOAD or FULLVIEW for best results!]

As requested by *drakl0r, learn how to attach a head to a different body in XPS! I kept the descriptions in this tutorial short and to the point since I've been over most of this stuff in previous tutorials. It really is the same basic process each time. ^^ Also, if you have any questions or issues, feel free to ask, and I'll try to help if I can.

XPS is a free program based off of Dusan's XNALara posing program.
XPS is coded by Dusan and XNAaraL.

Great tutorial, it's really easy to follow :)

One question though after I attach the head and save it and everything when I reload the model, under optional stuff her head if listed, is there any way to fix this?

Yes, if you get a program called Notepad++. Open the mesh's file in N++ and you're be able to rename to remove the (+) before the head's attached bone. Honestly, though, the fact that the head is shown with the (+) doesn't affect the model. The only reason you'd need to fix this is if it just annoys you personally.

Does this also apply to thighs/torsos?

Pretty much. The bones you attach with will change, obviously, but it's the same basic principles.

To do that, just follow this tutorial. You're basically going to tell XPS to hide the meshes you don't want to show by making those meshes "optional" and then having the program delete them. Follow the tutorial carefully, and it'll get you there. :] Be sure to reset all the posing before saving the models or else the meshmod won't work properly.

Tried to isolate Samus' head...
Everything went well, but after I saved it at a GenericItem and tried to add it into a scene an error message came up.

What's the error? Try saving it again without the textures (then copy the textures over manually). That usually fixes many of the possible problems.

So try saving without textures?
