Bryn's SPF 42

Current version: 0.4b

Normalmap is for female nord by default.
Read installforraces.txt guide for easy installation on other race If desired.
Because of this, manual installation is recommended.
Textures are 2048x2048 resolution, compression is not possible due to artifacting.
I can upload 4096 or 8192 versions if they are desired. (for crazy monitor people or modders resource)
I changed my color texture maps on screenshots cause on my current enb settings intended patches of pigmentation instead appear to be dirt.

With rounded normalmaps, the dark/light areas of your face are still very strongly contrasted.
Under different lighting conditions, your face will look different, and sometimes you become ugly.

This normalmap aims to address this issue while remaining true to the human form. It controls how the light/dark regions change with the lighting conditions due to having more angular lines.

  • This is an all new original normalmap/spec map for your chars head.
  • It is not derived from other available existing normalmaps.
  • Baked at 8192x8192 resolution with hand sculpted highpoly head mesh.
  • Skinlike pore appearace you can see.(realistic small size of course)
  • More angular style of facial shape.
  • Painstakingly designed to improve the light/dark of your face as you are illuminated by lights from different angles.
  • Specular map based on combination of green channel of normalmap and blue channel of a tangent space normalmap baked from same meshes.
  • Neckseams prepatched with UNP texture blender library resource.
  • No neckseams.
  • No compatibility issues. (if you change your face texture, reinstall this mod)

Helmets not recommended.

Please adjust your makeup for best results.
