    Q: How do I change Lincoln Clay to play as [insert any ped]?


    Q: How do I replace a texture mod?

    A: This is what I did for Zombie Lincoln Clay mod's head: I found a beat up/bloody male head model. I opened up the male head's sds file and saved all .dds file individually to a new folder on my desktop. Then I opened up "4238483006-he_basebody-b_scar" found in "auto_unique" and renamed all the male's head .dds files to lincoln's head files. DO NOT REPLACE the .dds files that have a black line in the texture previews! Keep the default .dss files that look like black lines or else the model will be unstable/buggy! After replacing .dds files, I clicked on "Save Archive" and got a new "4238483006-he_basebody-b_scar" file. I pasted it in "Mafia III/sds_retail/combinables/auto_unique" and was done.

    Tip: You should click on "Save Archive" every time you replace a .dds file since Mafia III Resource Explorer might crash sometimes.
