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).

y1m1w2: Two reasons, you have a mod loaded after this one or loose textures files, which overwrite textures I have packed into the bsa-archive. That's not my fault. The skin textures are blended smoothly for body, head and hands. It could also be possible your PC has not enough power to unpack the textures from bsa-archive during gameplay. Archive size is nearly 100 MB, unpacked textures and meshes have more than 220 MB, keep that in mind.

This mod would be awesome if it didn't make the skin and face not match.

This mod is good for most races but it turned the Dunmer in my game to looking like Bosmer.

About warpaints It's a bit like wrestling, at the begin of the match nice and clear, and after a while of fighting painting melts down.

@askarian: My last update (of this mod) is two years ago. I though why the hell have dunmer red eyes like vampires. So I decided to make blue eyes for that race. Whenever I find time and inspiration for an update, I'll remove eyes and warpaints from this mod and add all of that together with a cover khajiit skin to a new mod.

Mhm, yeah thats a good point if you prefere Dunmer with blue eyes, but could you make a second version of the mod, only difference (and so less work or problems) would be the eye-colour of the dunmer ;) PS: i have seen the "problem" with the warpaint too, they dont look so dark, more...realistic? just wanted to say.

Wackydj94: I don't play with warpaints, but for sure I'll look at the issue. Probably I fix that.
ReDragon  [author] Aug 15, 2015 @ 1:15pm 
@askarian: You're absolutely right, it makes characters "looks kind of friendly". And you forgot every race looks different. About dunmer I like the blue eyes very much, but who cares what I like.

Nice mod for having younger and good looking characters, but its not so ideal for making "Asshole" characters because everyone looks kind of friendly. And Dunmer look like shit (blue eyes, skin is too light...brrrrr). CONCLUSION: Nice Mod, but not for bad ones or dunmer ;)

the mod messes up the war paint. I must uninstall though I am very happy with it.
