Face Retexture Project - A Mod for Payday 2

11 Heisters' pretty face retextures

Spent some weeks working on these, it covers 11 characters, which I resculpted the faces, baked new normals, and retextured according to their respective actors the best I could, well, most of them at least.

The character list it covers goes as following:

  • Dallas
  • Houston
  • Chains
  • Wolf
  • Hoxton
  • Clover
  • Dragan
  • Jacket
  • Bodhi
  • Sokol 
  • Wick

Improvements:

The main improvements were getting rid of static lighting and reflections on their faces and improving the eyes shading. Making the faces look more natural.

It was like trying to polish not only a turd but an entire pile of shit, I've seen the original high-poly's of some of the characters and they're not bad at all, but it seems like something goes very wrong in the process of baking and final texturing those since they end up like these, Their UV's are quite stretchy all over, and doesn't allow for much fine detailing, motive why I had to use original hair in the great majority of them.

Between other problems, I noticed some of the base models doesn't even match the actor's face, or at least the'y were not intended to (you can hardly make Wick actually look like Keanu Reeves). But other than that it was a really fun project to work on, and I hope you like the outcome

Installing:

Simply drag the folder "FaceRetextures" into the "mod_overwrites" folder, located at "...\Steam\SteamApps\common\PAYDAY 2".

I'm not sure if ModBoy has compatibility with Payday 2 yet.

In case you don't like any of the retextures you can simply remove them by deleting the respective file, you'll find the files browsing deeper into the FaceRetextures folder. Note that hoxton goes for Houston while old_hoxton is the actual Hoxton.

    Do you plan on working on this project again? Because currently it's not just outdated, it doesn't work anymore because every heisters model has been overhauled, including the ones in this pack.

    There's barely any face retexture mods for payday 2 and this is THE most promising, I'd love to see more from this.

    Will this be updated for the latest Heisters and possibly even include police units?
    RED more than BLU

    While the texturing job is absolutely stunning, I can't say I agree with some of the design choices. Some of the heisters lost their bad ass and angry stare in the process of this, and Jacket kinda looks like off brand Adam Driver. Anyway, I'd love to all the heisters (especially Bonnie) added in the future, and keep up the good work!

    I like this a lot. But there's just one thing that bugs me.
    Do you by any chance plan on adding a old Hox with his burned face?
    That would make this pretty much perfect in my eyes.

    ls that so~?

    Edit: Well, turns out the page height caught up to the side bar moving it to its place, all we needed was this comment.
