This new Baldur's Gate 3 mod finally fixes Gale's beard and I'm genuinely relieved

By FileTrekker a month ago, last updated a month ago

You're a fan of Baldur’s Gate 3; that's why you're here - and I can bet that you've noticed that minor, curious visual quirk that disrupts the visual harmony of the game—facial hair, particularly on Gale. As characters move and their faces animate, beards can sometimes appear to shorten or even disappear in parts, creating an inconsistent and patchy appearance. 

This problem stems from the game's skin movement not fully synchronizing with the hair movement, a technical hiccup that breaks immersion for those striving for a seamless role-playing experience. Fortunately, modders are here to save the day, with Gale Edits from modder NoiraFayn, which provides a robust solution to this hairy situation. 

This mod ensures that Gale’s beard remains full and lustrous, regardless of his facial movements. It seamlessly integrates with the existing Piercing Improvement—Physics mod, another favourite that adds realistic movement to earrings, preventing them from remaining unnaturally fixed in place. Together, these mods enhance the visual fidelity of Baldur’s Gate 3, bringing a level of polish that makes them essential for those who nitpick fine details, like, well, me.

It’s important to note, however, that the Gale Edits mod exclusively fixes Gale’s beard and does not extend its magic to custom characters’ facial hair. Players crafting their unique heroes or adventurers will still face the same beard-clipping issues unless further mods or patches address this problem. There is some hope, though, with the upcoming Patch 7, which promises to add official mod support to Baldur’s Gate 3. With any luck we'll also get some more beard fixes.
