1.0 - Initial release
1.1 - ECE compatible
1.2 - Added MadCat221's fanged Harkon. Removed an unnecessary edit to the Nord Vampire race to ensure compatibility with another mod I may release.


Skyrim version 1.9.32.0.8 or later
Dawnguard DLC


This mod is meant to be a companion mod to my BVFE - Better Vampire Fangs and Eyes mod, though it is not required and both can run independent of each other. This mod is completely stand-alone, meaning no other mods are required. This also means you can choose any of the body types regardless of the body type you are using. Serana and Valerica are made over and are now full vampires. They include my fangs and your choice of glowing or normal eyes. Because Lord Harkon's script turns him back to Nord after his vampire lord transformation, I can't change too much. He only gets the eye changes, no fangs.

Warning:
Because I've changed Serana's race from Nord to NordVampire, I don't know how it will effect her if you "cure" her. So at this point I would recommend this mod only for those that plan on keeping Serana a vampire. If you do want to cure her, do so at your own risk!

Thanks to Hodilton for putting this video together!




The mod is available in three body flavors: CBBE, UNP and CNHF. Keep in mind however, that it is stand-alone so you are free to choose the body you want even if it doesn't match the one you personally use in game. If you use UNP, but you like how the Dread Huntress armor looks on her, choose CBBE. Each body type is available with glowing and non-glowing eyes for a total of 6 options:

BVFE Serana CBBE
BVFE Serana Glow CBBE
BVFE Serana UNP
BVFE Serana Glow UNP
BVFE Serana CNHF
BVFE Serana Glow CNHF


Pick your option and install with NMM, or download manually, unzip and drop in your data folder. If you decide you want to change options, just overwrite the files.

NOTE: If you are currently running hellosanta's SG Hair pack, you will be prompted to overwrite a few files. These files are identical to the ones in SG Hair pack so overwriting or skipping will produce the same results.

COMPATABILITY: This mod will conflict with any other mod that changes the appearance of Serana, Valerica or Harkon.

UPDATE: Version 1.1 should now be compatible with ECE. I admit that I don't have access to multiple ECE users for testing, but everything is working on the one tester I do have. If any ECE users are still having issues, let me know.


Uninstall with NMM, or if uninstalling manually uncheck BVFE_Serana in your mod list and delete the following files:

Data\Meshes\actors\character\facegendata\facegeom\Dawnguard.esm\00002b6c.nif
Data\Meshes\actors\character\facegendata\facegeom\Dawnguard.esm\00003b8b.nif
Data\Meshes\actors\character\facegendata\facegeom\Dawnguard.esm\00003ba7.nif
Textures\Actors\Character\facegendata\facetint\Dawnguard.esm\00002b6c.dds
Textures\Actors\Character\facegendata\facetint\Dawnguard.esm\00003b8b.dds

Any other files included in the ZIP will be ignored once the ESP is unchecked. If you like to keep your DATA folder clean, you can reference the files in the ZIP to delete any other files that are added. Again, if already using the SG Hair mod, don't delete files in either SG Hair directory.
