There were way too few hairstyles to offer any variety in NewGens in the game, and while this problem was significantly rectified with version 1 and 2 of this OLT Hairpack, version 3 brings even more (especially new afro hairs).
Released: 13 November 2012
Newgens will never look the same once you install this!
FeaturesIMPROVED THE OLD HAIRS:
Improved all the previously released hairs by removing all the white borders you'd get when using a dark skin. Also cleaned them up a bit and corrected some unrealistic colors for a more natural look to them.
Newgens previously looked like they had no bodies from the neck down. So adding some shirts to them to give them a hint of shoulders, worked out extremely well. The shirt style is a very basic grey colored t-shirt to prevent any colors that associate to any team.
MORE FACIAL HAIR:
Added more advanced facial hairs to give more "character" to the players. It was a tough thing to do, because the faces can be very different. However, after excessive testing it works absolutely wonderful, but occasionally (very rarely), you might find a player who looks a little bit weird.
MORE BALD STYLES:
Put in a bunch more bald hair styles as well. These would be bald headed players who's got some facial hair, or a hint of shaved down hairlines. Little things like this add a lot to the realism of the newgens.
NEW MIXED RACE CATEGORY:
The new mixed race category for hairs. Simply copied the entire afro folder for that. Apparently these hairs are for Afro/Caucasian mixed ethnic groups, and can be found in just about any nation. Sometimes these players are a little too pale skinned - so they look a little odd with the afro hairs.

- OLT Expanded Hair Pack v3 (No Shirt)
Only download this if you don't want shirts on the players
- OLT Default Replacements - Adds Shirts to the default hairs!
It looks kind of weird if only players with OLT Hair Pack get realistic shoulders, while the defaults still appear as heads on a stick. So make sure you get the default replacements as well!
Installation InstructionsExtract "olt hairpack" folder into the following directory:
\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2013\data\facegen\hair\
DO NOT OVERWRITE THE EXISTING ORIGINAL FOLDERS (afro, asian, euro, hispanic).
You should have the "olt hairpack" folder in this directory IN ADDITION to the other ones, or you will mess up your game.
Note: In the facegen\hair folder, you should notice four folders already (afro, asian, euro & hispanic). These are the default hairs for the game. You should add the "olt hairpack" folder to those four in there so you don't write over the original hair styles. So DO NOT extract the "afro", "asian", "euro" & "hispanic" folders from within the "olt hairpack" folder directly into the "facegen/hair" folder. Extract the actual folder "olt hairpack" into this directory.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE ALREADY INSTALLED A PREVIOUS VERSION:
Please delete the old "olt hairpack" folder before installing this one, to prevent any unwanted effects. All old hairstyles will still be there.
New hairstyles should take effect immediately upon loading up the game. But only newly generated regens after the install will appear with the new hairstyles.
- Regens sometimes change hairs upon installation of new updates, but as long as the hair folders remain the same, so will the hairs.
- Bald hairstyles are only used sporadically. More often than not, it uses no extra image for the balds, which means they'll wear no shirt.
- Rarely, some extreme featured faces may not align 100% with the hair image. Most notably with the bearded ones. But, 99% work just fine!
