Lydia Facelift (no tattoo)

An alternate look for everyone's favorite Housecarl.

Version WITH tattoo:

Comments and suggestions are welcome! Hope you enjoy it and be sure to leave a rating if you do!

Also does the following:
- Replaces Lydia's default inventory with Fine Clothes and Boots for when she's in your house
- Adds a set of steel armor and greatsword as regular inventory items that can be traded
- Makes Lydia an essential npc so she takes a knee instead of dying
- Makes Lydia more proficient with two-handed weapons
- Sets her level cap to 81 so she'll always be the same level as you

---Lydia's level stuck at the default 50? Here's how to fix it.---

1. Dismiss Lydia from your service.
2. Open console (~) and click on Lydia so she's selected.
3. Type setlevel 1000,0,6,81 and hit enter.
4. Close the console (~) and reopen it. Lydia should still be selected, if not, select her again.
5. Type getlevel to confirm that she's now the same level as you.

---If you're curious what setlevel 1000,0,6,81 does...---
The first number is the NPC's level compared to yours in tenths of a percent (so 1000 * 0.1% = 100%).
The second number is how many levels to add to that (0 for no change or a +/- value to change).
The third number is the minimum level and the fourth number is the maximum level for the NPC.

If you part ways and she goes back home she'll be wearing her default outfit but will still have whatever armor and weapons you've given her in her inventory. When you ask her to follow you, trade with her to get her to equip her gear again.

Shown with:
Real Skin and Improved Chargen for Women

If Lydia's face and body color are mismatched or she doesn't appear to have changed at all, you probably have a conflict with another mod. This mod is likely to conflict with other mods which directly edit Lydia in any way, such as Essential Followers or Fixed Followers Light.

If you're having issues, try subscribing to this mod AFTER the other mods or adjusting the load order manually in Data Files from the launcher.

Um for some reason Lydia has a Skyforge Greatsword on her back. How do I fix that?

After looking around for Lydia mods here and Nexus, this is the best I found which does almost exactly what I wanted. I only wish you had given her better-looking clothes, those unisex "fine" clothes are ugly.

will Lydia do more house wife duties now?

Ok, so I'm a bit new to this whole workshop thing, do I just click "subscribe" or is there convoluted process I need to go through?

I appreciate this mod very much. Lydia is now able go from comfortable housewife to warrior at a moments notice.

May I request that you make a mod just like this for Jordis the Shield Maiden?

Thanks! Lyds now looks more like my kind of girl. Instead of a toots-up floozy.

Are you sure that it's this mod that's doing it? If you disable everything except Space Core does it work? If you disable everything except this mod and Space Core does it work?
