Skyrim - Natural Skin

This was made as a compilation of existing mods that contains meshes and textures for humans, khajiit, argonian, orcs and elf races. I used as a template Caliente Female Body, face maps for men by geonox, Beauty faces by necKros, Better females by Bella, Better elven faces by Siegrun and xce and Best beast races by Xenius

Update: Now support of briarheart and vampires (from DLC Dawnguard); some minor changes
You don't need Dawnguard, but if you use this DLC then: Load my mod after dawnguard.esm!

(1) Does this mod require CFB? NO, all is included inside the bsa archive. Mesh-files as follow:

meshes\actors\character\character assets female
__ skeletonbeast_female.nif - skeleton_female.nif - skeleton_female.hkx
meshes\actors\character\character assets
__ femalehands_0.nif - femalehands_1.nif
__ 1stpersonfemalehands_0.nif - 1stpersonfemalehands_1.nif
__ femalehead.nif - femalehead.tri, femalebody_0.nif - femalebody_1.nif
__ skeleton.nif - skeleton.hkx
__ malehead.nif - malehead.tri, malebody_0.nif - malebody_1.nif

(2) Orcs are supposed to be GREEN, not BROWN, etc. THAT is the problem.
Released an additional mod package Skyrim - Natural Skin (AddOn) which should solve this issue.

(3) .. you can never tell what a skin mod is going to do in this game, because the modders always use 4-5 different mods, .. So who knows?
Well.. Female meshes/textures are based in ''Caliente_Female_Body_Mod_BBE_v3.2'' ( option nevernude curvy ) have a look at Imperial females have Bella faces and for Men was taken the '''' from geonox as a template. For argonian/khajiit races goes my big thanks to Xenius and his mod ''Better beast races v2.0''. The skin colour of body textures (head, body and hands) I made with ''Paint.Net 3.51''. Nearly all the textures were resized and edited by myself with steady hand and hopefully eagle eyes.

(4) How to install this mod?
- Click on the green button +Subscribe (+Abonnieren)
- Start skyrim in online mode and let steam update all mods you subscribed (wait a bit because archive size)
- now Click on the the third entry ''datafiles'' in skyrim load screen (normally new mods are auto enabled and the last in modlist order) and check the load order of your mods
- Press 'Ok' button (if changed) or 'Cancel' to confirm your load order, Start the game..

If you cannot find menu entry datafiles then check your SkyrimPrefs.ini for the following:

(5) How to uninstall a steam mod?
- temporarly: start the game on Skyrim load screen click on ''datafiles'', in the modlist look for the steam mod name and disable the check mark in front of the name, That's all..
- permanently: Use the button ''delete files'' inside menu entry ''datafiles'' on skyrim load screen, highlight the mod-entry, click the delete button and make your choice twice, delete from your HD and unsubscribe on your steam workshop.

Credits go to Caliente, Xenius, geonox, Siegrun, necKros and Bella

''1K_DDS_NIF_NaturalSkin.esp'' is an empty file (the bsa-archive should have 86.748.396 bytes).

Thank you. This mod makes characters look so much better. My Bretone Dragonborn is now 5 years younger.

@R_U_Sirius1: You can do what you want. Do you have trouble with this mod? Uninstall, I described it above.

Finally found a hq texture mod

Should I unsub xce? Also, XCE is the one that simply makes vanilla faces look better, in terms of quality, right?

Im very sorry to report that this mod now causes CTDs for legendary edition. I tested several times with no other mods enabled, + clean install. The first CTDs occur during the main quest, upon trying to enter Whiterun after retrieving the Dragonstone from bleakfalls.

I installed CBBE after uninstalling Natural Skin*
ReDragon  [author] Oct 29, 2016 @ 10:32am 
@zephyr3000.0: I wrote in description, CBBE is not needed to install. All is included. If you want to run original body mod by caliente don't use together with this mod! My mod is standalone.

If you like to run mod CFB (Caliente Female BodyMod) version CBBE load this firstly and after that try my mod Natural Skin (AddOn) which consists of textures only.

I installed CBBE after Natural Skin because gives me problems, the animation spells and torches were not working, I mean the spell was shown, but not the hand using it, this problem only when i try to move with the spell
ReDragon  [author] Sep 8, 2016 @ 9:09am 
@zephyr3000.0: This mod is not intended to work with any kind of UNP body modification. It's CBBE as I wrote in description. I never had an issue with spells and/or torches and nobody has written about such mistake until now.
