How the character creator works
Dragon Age character creator looks for the sources (skintones, eye colours, hairs, tresses colours, etc) in a xml called chargenmorphcfg.xml. The character creator will show you only the sources which can be listed in that xml file.
Most cosmetic mods add their own chargenmorphcfg.xml file that contains the vanilla respurces and the ones included by the mod. But, when there is multiple chargenmorphcfg.xml file inside Dragon Age override folder, the game don't understand what type is the right someone to be applied together with character creator won't work properly. That's the reason why, whenever installing more than one aesthetic mod, you're going to have to add the sources the newest mod increases the listings inside chargenmorphcfg.xml file which inside override folder.Notes * If you are setting up cosmetic mods that add resources employed by NPCs, and also you wouldn't like them for your personality, you don't have to edit the chargenmorphcfg.xml because file is only used by the smoothness creator. But, in the event that mod adds a new xml file, delete it or your personality creator will most likely wont act as you need it to.
You can even make use of the recently updated and improved: CharGenMorph Compiler, created by TerraEx, to mix the ".xml" files from numerous mods instantly. Additional information about any of it utility is available here: Using Dragon Age Mods for Dummies.
