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 modsreloaded.com/file1994.html. Imperial females have Bella faces and for Men was taken the ''malehead.dds'' 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).

Nevermind! I'm here for you to clarify. It's my way to use the steam workshop. Games are nice (to have / to play) but it's not the true world. Music is real emotion and passion, imho.;))

Oh no it's fine, I was just confused :)

@sharkturd11: I use my workshop as jukebox. It's music of my choice which you'll not listen to the radio every day. I'm sorry for your displeasure..

Why are there so many songs? I don't get it... ;m;

@shreew: Did you mean that your player avatar has a darker skin? Try my additional texture mod to solve your issue. I'm only able to fix things what I can see on my PC. The last time I'm working on papyrus scripts bugfixing, that needs a lot of time.

@brendensilly: YOU ARE BLOCKED !!!

My girl has darker skin and she looks orange in the light. I unsubscribed so can you fix that? Awsome mod by the way.

@skunk ghoti: SMIM is a very popular mod "Static Mesh IMprovment" by brumbek, that changed also textures. I'm not sure why, but the Skyrim engine dislike mesh-files of architecture which aren't vanilla in outdoor areas. It's my result of Skyrim playing. Normally bugs can be fixed, but if you get a CTD (crash to Desktop) without any crashlog it is nearly impossible to fix. That's life..

Yeah, much as I love Skyrim it's impossible to deny how buggy it is, especially with mods running too. One question though: what's SMIM?
ReDragon  [author] Oct 7 @ 7:44pm 
@skunk ghoti: It's ok.. this mod changes vanilla mesh-files which can lead to trouble ingame. I used SMIM and had to uninstall them. My experience with this game says: Whenever I solved a problem (scripts, npc modeling, mesh-file adjustment) I got at least one or more other issues. The documentation about game troubleshooting is not so good, almost trial and error.
