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).

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.

@Brainstorm104: It depends what did you mean with look (and feel)? It's skin typo and eyes texture replacement. Female mesh-files are based on Caliente, male mesh-files are vanilla like. No armor or clothes included, except underwear.

does this work with any mods that changes the look of the male and females body? because i dont want this messing with my other mods

@Liam: I tried the third person view with shield raising, no trouble like you. Thanks for pointing that out. It could be a miss with other mods that change the *.hkx files. Had you the trouble for male and female characters?

who want his mod its just like glowing skin in the shadows

One issue I had was with shields in third person view. When I raise my shield, it doesn't look like I'm actually raising it, only that I'm just standing there. I'm not sure if this mod or the addon is causing it or if you've addressed this already, but I thought it was something to point out.

@Xeelus: That is a CK issue.

After you're done editing the NPC, select it in the Actors Tab and click Alt+F4.
That'll export the facial data manually like that:

meshes\actors\character\facegendata\facegeom\<your mod name>.esp

textures\actors\character\facegendata\facetint\<your mod name>.esp

Both files (*.nif, *.dds) have to be included to the archive <your mod name>.bsa

I think it may just be a problem with the game, because I've seen a lot of people who have made Dremora followers through CK with this problem. I don't think it's your mod. It's a great mod, by the way!

@Xeelus: I'm really surprised to hear from that. It looks like mesh trouble. I've never touched the texture of Dremora with this mod. Strange!
