i experienced the exell in everything. i made a nord, i started as a battle mage, and then ended up being an assassin, mage, battle mage, sword and shield warrior, and a light or heav armor user all at the same time.

Для Русских.
Этот мод типо очень рекомендуется(как и все остальные) ставить к первому естественно, чтобы создать более менее..ээм..правильного персонажа.
Не знаю как это перевести

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.

thanks a lot

@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.
tyre Nov 21, 2015 @ 9:57am 
so what does this do to the mod i was wondering if it made it compatible with other mods i haven't tested the mod normally with race mods so im not sure if its normally compatible

@Dardstar: You can download the chart here: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/download/85908

Great Mod keep up the good work
Syclonix  [author] Sep 13, 2015 @ 1:14am 
...??
BrushBristle Sep 12, 2015 @ 4:37pm 
Does this mod allow the player to choose any gender other than male or female?

thanks for replying
Syclonix  [author] Aug 25, 2015 @ 12:16pm 
@Mr. Worldwide: Stats are calculated per attribute equations used in Oblivion/Morrowind. In those games there were additional attributes (e.g. intelligence, speed) that Skryim cut out, which is why females are slightly underpowered. Keeping with TES lore, I did not deviate from those attribute calculations. That said, there are other less quantifiable benefit of playing a female character (e.g. appearance/looks) that are a trade-off.

The attributes make a difference, but not one that significantly gimps female characters.
Koseu Omes Aug 24, 2015 @ 10:15pm 
Is there any afvantage to playing a female character? It seems no matter the race Females always have less health/stamina but no increased magicka. Is this a calculation error or intended? Other than that loving the mod, can't play skrim without it.

Thanks Shadow! :)

Great Mods Syclonix makes the game much better
Syclonix  [author] Jun 24, 2015 @ 2:37pm 
Great. Glad to hear Buster :)
Buster Jun 24, 2015 @ 1:15pm 
Yeah my mods werent showing up on the skyrim data files thank you for the help much appreciated and this mod is a 10/10 in my opinion its just out right amazing, thank you for creating this mod and helping me access it.
Syclonix  [author] Jun 24, 2015 @ 1:00pm 
Hi Buster, after you subscribed are the files in your Skyrim Data Files? Here are some troubleshooting steps:

1. Go to Skyrim Launcher -> Data Files and check to see if Character Creation Overhaul.esp was downloaded. If not, wait for Steam to sync your subscribed mods.

2. Go to Skyrim Launcher -> Data Files. Make sure Character Creation Overhaul.esp is enabled (e.g. has a checkbox next to it)

3. Load a game and wait 10 seconds for the mod to activate. If you are starting a new game, wait 10 seconds after the character creation for the CCO menu to pop up.
Buster Jun 23, 2015 @ 8:17pm 
cant get this mod to work sadly :/ ive subscribed to all of the Character Creation Overhaul add-ons and it still wont work
Dan May 24, 2015 @ 8:18pm 
Thanks! I'll muck around with it. Also, great work on all of your stuff! I can't play without your Random Alternate Start mod.
Syclonix  [author] May 24, 2015 @ 7:11pm 
Hi Zargon, first let me say thank you for raising your concern in a respectful manner. I know a lot of people don't agree with the calculated stats and I appreciate you did not make it into a personal attack. Yes, you can edit the values yourself but you'll need to open up the Creation Kit and dig through the scripts. I've annotated them fairly well so you should be able to find and edit the values if you know your way around the kit. If you don't you can try asking someone over at the Bethesda forums as I no longer have Skyrim or the Creation Kit installed. Have a great day!
Dan May 24, 2015 @ 6:13pm 
Hey Syclonix, I'm super in to this mod! However it drives me crazy that most of the female variants are flat out worse than male variants. It's a huge bummer because I LOVE the idea of bringing gender specific's back. Is there any way I can edit these stats?
Syclonix  [author] Mar 21, 2015 @ 11:23am 
@gisarockstar: I really can't help you without further details about the problem. What seems to be the issue? What have you tried doing already?
Spooderman Mar 20, 2015 @ 3:42pm 
cant get it to work pls help
Syclonix  [author] Jan 3, 2015 @ 8:52pm 
Hi cepTrik, this is an optional module for CCO. You'll need CCO for this mod to work. Please see the description for what it does.
TrojanFlame Dec 31, 2014 @ 5:13am 
I'm sorry but what is the difference between this one and the regular Character Creation Overhaul?
regular wolf Dec 24, 2014 @ 9:20am 
thx
Syclonix  [author] Dec 23, 2014 @ 9:31pm 
@Regular Wolf: Sounds like you ran into the double menu bug, sorry about that. You'll need to reload a save prior to using CCO. Make sure you *do not* click the change race button in CCO and you should avoid the bug.
regular wolf Dec 23, 2014 @ 7:25pm 
this mod is way too over powered because i tried it but i started with level 1 but my smithing archer and one-handed was level 100
Acer Dec 9, 2014 @ 12:21pm 
OHHH ok thank you.
Syclonix  [author] Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:51pm 
Hi Acer, Diverse Races and Genders does not add new races and genders. What it does is have your race and gender affect your starting skill levels. Please see the chart in the screenshot to see the effect Diverse Races and Genders has. It is automatically applied to the game once it is activated in your Data Files. You do not need to do anything else for it to work.
Acer Dec 8, 2014 @ 2:06pm 
The datafile's have been complete also, It is "checked marked" in the Data file section, and says it has ben successfully installed.
Acer Dec 8, 2014 @ 2:04pm 
Hmm. It seems as though this mod doesnt work for me, i have Re-installed it, Restarted my Laptop, etc. and i DO have the required mod for this to work (Character Chreation Overhaul). The required mod works, however, the mods and gender do not. i tried the book in my inventory, and there were no new Races+Genders! thanks for reading my post -C
Syclonix  [author] Dec 2, 2014 @ 10:42am 
Does it show up in your Data Files and is it checked? Maybe Steam hasn't synced your subscribed mods yet in which case you need to launch the Skyrim Launcher -> click Data Files then wait for Steam to download.
|Ooze| Monstergirl Dec 2, 2014 @ 1:20am 
I have already done that. Yet. Nothing. I'm not entirely sure what the hell is going on.
Syclonix  [author] Dec 1, 2014 @ 2:33pm 
@Monstarella: Make sure you download the main mod: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=89896226

Diverse Races and Genders is a module for the main Character Creation Overhaul mod, you need to install that one first before this module will work.
|Ooze| Monstergirl Dec 1, 2014 @ 1:10pm 
This mod does NOT work for me for some reason.I installed it and POOF. Nothing. I'm very butthurt :C
John Matrix Oct 27, 2014 @ 7:58pm 
shoot I'm still scared about to download it
Syclonix  [author] Oct 21, 2014 @ 6:18pm 
Correct.
John Matrix Oct 18, 2014 @ 5:21pm 
ok so I dont have to restart if I down load this mod and want to use it
Cloud Sep 13, 2014 @ 9:53pm 
Come on, just restart a new character, that's fun and you must do it to enjoy Skyrim full potential. If you did the nord warrior, for example, just restart a new character with a female and different race, you could be focussing on magicka or bow, or whatever you think of. This mod is the ultimate motivation to restart a new character. 20 hours is nothing, really.
RvD Aug 3, 2014 @ 12:53pm 
Fuck where have been this mod been before i start the game and finish like 40% of the quests that took 20 hours. just fuck -.-
