Hey guys!
I have installed the Character Generator DLC for RPG Maker MZ. However, when I open the Character Generator, the new parts don't appear. Can anyone help me?

Do you use steam or stand-alone?
Which DLC pack is it(link)?
How did you "install" it?

Save and close your project close MZ. Confirm the DLC was download in steam under download updates.. if it hasn't, click download now(it may be pending).
If it has, just reopen MZ, open a project, and click the generator icon.

EDIT:
Confirm you purchased the pack.

Confirm parts by looking for appropriate section(male, female, kid)

Purchasing the DLC in Steam would probably not do anything to add it to your generator. You need to find where the files were installed (usually a DLC folder in the directory where you installed MZ) and copy them into the generator folder manually. This is because you may already have files in the generator with conflicting names, and Steam wouldn't have a way to handle that.

If you're not sure how to do that, there are bunches of threads on installing generator parts.

Steam automatically installs generator parts(only generator parts).. you wont find any image files in the DLC folder.. only a note saying they were automatically installed.

Huh...that's not the case for some stuff I have in MV. But maybe those packs had mixed asset types so were treated differently.

It happened roughly(from what I remember) around the time mz was released. They made changes to how generator parts are installed.

Yes, I think mixed asset packs may not install automatically.

Does anyone know if Yanfly's Ace scripts are still free for use in both commercial and noncommercial projects? Can't find much except for the wordpress Terms of Use, but not sure if it's not outdated.
I just realized two of My series are beginning to look virtually identical to one another in mechanics and general themes, I never had this problem before.

Juice FX is amazing... the portal in the middle is actually animated and moves thanks to Juice FX. so I edited part of a map I have and then drew the portal around it. threw it into Juice FX and now it's lively instead of static.
