Hats have a hard-coded category of -95 (Hats.cs::Load)

Index Field Example Value
0 Name Trucker Hat
1 Description Mesh in the back to keep your head cool.
2 skipHairDraw false
3 ignoreHairstyleOffset true
4 Name (for language files other than English) Truckerhut

If skipHairDraw is "true", then the game will not change the character's hairstyle when they put on the hat. If set to "false", the player's hairstyle may change when they put on the hat.

If ignoreHairstyleOffset is set to "true", it means that the game will position the hat regardless of the hairstyle your character has. For instance, for a hat such as the Butterfly Bow, you will want to have it set to "false" so that the bow will adjust position to be attached to your character's chosen hairstyle. However, for something like the Eye Patch, that should be kept in the same position on your character's head no matter what hair you have chosen, so it should be set to "true".
