Character Creation Overhaul - Diverse Races and Genders

This is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED optional module for Character Creation Overhaul located at:

You must have the Character Creation Overhaul for this mod to work.

Vanilla Skyrim allowed any starting character, regardless of race or gender, to excel at virtually anything, taking out the fun, strategy, and role-playing aspects of previous Elder Scrolls games from the overall Skyrim experience. CCO makes races and genders diverse again, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, so that each play through will be noticeably different. For example, a male Orc will have more starting health and carrying capacity than a female High Elf, but the High Elf will have significantly more magicka. Starting health, magicka, stamina, and carry weight have all been carefully and formulaically derived from each race/gender's traditional attributes (e.g. Strength, Endurance, Intelligence, etc.) and then adjusted for balance in Skyrim. Additionally, (like in the previous Elder Scrolls game) all races' skills will start at level 5 before racial bonuses are applied. See the CCO Races chart for specifics.

Hi, the mod works well, I have a reason to actually think about what I am supposed to do in Skyrim. I liked the crusader class since morrowind, even when it was a new game on the market. Thus from that background I was sad when Skyrim had no class structure, making it hard to make alternate characters with meaning in the game. A crusader destroys evils while looting and raiding for a profit. Right now that evil is the Imperials, but because you have a class, it makes sense why you might join the Danwguard or stay in the Stormcloak ranks permenantly. That was what classes meant for me when I read them the first time.

@tyre, this is an optional module for my Character Creation Overhaul mod. It changes your starting attributes based on your race and gender (See the table above in screenshots). This mod is compatible with custom races, but it won't actually make any stat changes for custom races, it will just keep the vanilla stats.
