Make a new folder & call it DA morphs, or whatever you want. (It doesn't matter what it's called, or where it is.)
Start the toolset.
You can get it here www.fileplanet.com/archive/p-62608/Dragon-Age-Origins-Toolset since the Bioware link no longer works.
Then go File > New > Morph
Then click on [Choose base]
Then we'll go HF_UHM_BASa_0 HF_ for Human Female. And we'll have this young lady as a starting point.
You can hold down your scroll wheel or middle mouse button and drag her to view different angles.
Over on the right in the Object Inspector is were you spend hours playing with all the settings.
They're pretty much, suck it and see.
When your happy with your face, click on save, and save it to the folder you made earlier.
For now I'll save her as hf_cps_p01.mrh ( hf_ for Human Female, cps_ for Character PreSet, p01 for the first Human Female Preset.)
Because I want to use it as a Preset, it has to be exported as a .mop ( a .mop is just a .mor that is used as a Preset.)
So in the Object Inspector, go to the "Export settings" tab, & set "Export.mop file" to True
Then go up the top to Tools > Export > Post to local.
Down the bottom, amongst other things, it will say:
Successfully exported C:\Users\UserName\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\addins\DEMO\core\override\toolsetexport\hf_cps_p01.mop.
Start Dragon Age & under Installed Content, tick Demo Tutorial
Start a new game & pick the first Human female preset.
Then you can go Oh my God! go back into the Toolset and make a few small changes, save & Export to local & have another look.
If your happy with the way she looks, or your bold & want to throw her straight into the game without making her a preset and seeing her in game.
Then instead of saving her as hf_cps_p01 & exporting as a .mop.
Save her as hf_den220_alfstanna.mrh, Set "Export.mop file" to false. Then Tools> Export> Post to local (It will save it as hf_den220_alfstanna.mor) You'll see her in the Tavern before the Landsmeet.
If anyone has got this far & wants to know where to get the NPC names, or anything else, post and I'll add to it.
I wanted to keep it short so it wouldn't be daunting.
EDIT: I probably should have stuck this in the Dragon Age Modding and User Creations section. If a mod wants to move it, that would be nice.
