Tired of dry, lanky Cyberpunk 2077 hair? Wish you, too, could look full of life and vigor?
If that’s you, then Cyberpunk modder MJ_Eshan has the mod for you.
MJ_Eshan created a Cyberpunk 2077 hair mod that alters how light interacts with hair to create a more realistic and certainly more vibrant hairstyle for every character.
After MJ_Eshan did some digging in the game’s files, they discovered CD Projekt RED had actually created the hairs to be 40% darker than normal.
It’s uncertain why the developers did this, but the result is something MJ believed looked far too dank and flat.
Cyberpunk 2077 Hair Mod Gives Everyone a Shiny Makeover
Here’s how they describe the mod and their findings:
"There is another problem with hair material. They only diffuse and/or absorb light and don't reflect it specularly. Why? Again, the dev decided to set hair roughness to 1 which means every specular reflection turns into diffuse reflection.
So I tweaked Roughness factors as well, Based on Blender3D Cycles render "Principled Hair BSDF" default values. And the third change? Well, I honestly don't know why, But I feel like it's better to tweak MultiScatter Shader a little bit as well."
The result is hair that admittedly looks like a perfect fit for Cyberpunk 2077's world — shiny and luxe, with just a touch of the futuristic.
The Cyberpunk 2077 hair mod is available on NexusMods.
