This script does not have faces included, you will have to download them, some examples of facepacks for newgens :
- Chilled_Moose Facepack : https://www.fmscout.com/a-chilled-moose-free-facepack-3d-faces-for-newgens.html (you have to go to his patreon for more faces)
- Old Chilled_Moose Facepack : https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm-regen-facepack-by-wtforkgaming.html
- PES Facepack : https://sortitoutsi.net/content/50063/pes-regen-faces-into-fm
- FIFA 21 Facepack + script + faces already sorted : https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm21-better-regen-faces-fifa-edition.html
You can use as many packs at the same time as you want.
The faces added to newgens works on all saves but the ethnicity will certainly corresponds only on the save you did.
The MAC script can have some fails due to I don't have a MAC, so please contact me on Discord Krysler#0067 if you see anything.
TUTORIAL HOW TO INSTALL THE SCRIPT AND ATTRIBUTE FACES
Download and install the script
First you have to download and extract the .rar file (with Winrar or TheUnarchiver) in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021, your Football Manager 2021 folder should look like this.
Install Python on your computer with the file "python-3.8.5.exe" (Windows) or "python-3.8.6-macosx10.9.pkg" (MAC) which was extracted in the last step.
Sorting the faces
The script will pick one face that corresponds to the ethnic group and/or hair colour of the player. For this you will need to have sorted faces, it will take some times to sort them but you won't have to do it again.
In Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\Faces ethnic script you must have ethnic folder (and hair colour folders in each ethnic folder), you have to put your regens faces in folder that corresponds, a face can corresponds to multiple folders, you just have to duplicate it.
Better look at ethnic groups
African : Just black african
East asian : Japan, Korea, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia
Indian : India, Pakistan, I don't think you will have many faces in this folder
Middle east : arabic countries, Algeria, Marocco, Egypt ...
Mixed : mixed between whites and blacks, can share many faces with african folder
North european : Scandinavia, Great Britain
South european : Mediterranean, east european
Faces don't have to be renamed, we don't care.
Warning : Make sure you have at least one face in each folder !!!

Apply the script
When we installed the script in the first step we also installed views, they are very important because they help to export the datas (Unique ID, skin tone, hair colour). So when you go in the screens Team squad, Staff search, Player search, Shortlist you will be able to import the Script Faces view that corresponds to your screen.
Now you can go in-game and select the players you want to add a face, you cant just select your squad, make a shortlist, juste take all the player search list ...
You have to apply the view "SCRIPT FACES ..." on your screen.
Select all the players of your list with CTRL + A
Do CTRL + P to print the screen and select "Text file" (third option)
Rename the file "Faces regens" and save it in the Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021 folder
You extracted the datas and you have now a "Faces regens.rtf" file in your FM21 folder
Now you have to launch the script "Script_faces.bat"
If you are on MAC you have to launch the "Script_faces_FOR_MAC.py"
The script will tell you if there is an error, you will have to recheck all the steps (apply the view, export the datas with text file), it will tell you if the player has already a face, if it added a face or if the player is a real player ...
Just return in game, clear cache and reload the skin. You should have faces attrbuted to your players selected ! Next time you want to add faces to players you will just have to remake the "Apply the script" part.
You can't publish this script on another website without my permission.
If you created a newgen facepack and want to do a version with the script and faces sorted, please contact me and we will work together.
You can contact me on Discord : Krysler#0067, but don't do it if you didn't really search by yourself and if you didn't read correctly the tutorial.

Any ideas on what might cause this?
But the fact that you only can update the faces of your team regens is a negative aspect. I personally dont like to have my players with a "type" of face, and the rest of the world with other. So, if you find a way of get all the players with the faces updated, that would be so great..!!
I have done exactly as the tutorial says and talked with the author of the script on Discord. He says that for some reason it only works on some Macbooks. I am on Macbook Pro and running macOS Big Sur. Wondering if anyone has found a fix?
Problem now is how to add pictures to players in my team, without mistakenly adding to the same real players again. Can I make a list with players I own?
Je viens d'utiliser Newgen faces script dans la recherche de joueur sous recrutement , cela a fonctionner mais pas pour tous les joueurs car ils restent des joueurs sans images générées par le jeu. J'aimerais savoir comment on procède pour mettre à jour l'ensemble de la base de données avec laquelle on joue. merci d'avance.
Everything is in the same folder, which is '/Users/garyholliday/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021'
Any idea where I've gone wrong?
Anyone who plays more than 3+ years in their games would quickly see the benefit of this.
