I am leaving skyrim for fallout 4 and will no longer be supporting this mod.

I have a collection of racemenu/ece slot files I've accumulated over the years and decided to try making followers out of them. Everyone has particular taste and I modeled these followers based on my taste. If you don't like them, feel free to change them for your personal use (re-upload requires permission) or don't use them at all. If your racemenu/ece slot is used (and you didn't want me to use it), just let me know and I'll remove the follower.

Current version is standalone with hairs from Apachii, Crazy Hairs, and KS Hairdos Renewal.

1. Skyrim version has to be or higher
2. UNPB version requires an appropriate skeleton such as XP32 Maximum Skeleton Extended by Groovtama. If you use the UNP override file, you don't need the skeleton.

Although this mod is mostly "standalone" it does depend on the Eyes of Beauty cubemap, so make sure you have it or your eyes might look a bit different than screenshots. Also, this mod depends on the vanilla Skyrim head/face tri files and morphs. If you've customized them, these ladies might look a bit different.

All followers:
Race: Nord-based (created a custom race so I could use the UNPB body)
Body: UNPB with BBP (make sure you have a compatible skeleton)
Optional Bodies - UNPBO, UNP, 7B
Skin: SG Female Textures Renewal 2K (4K patch available in the optional downloads)
Rannah Skin: Fairskin
Location: Whiterun - Hall of the Dead
Level: 1 - No limit
All of them are set to essential.
All of them can be married.

[Installation Instructions]
NMM should install it for you. I don't use bain or Mod organizer, but I assume they will do it too.

Manual install/uninstall:

File structure:

I believe everything is custom and script-free, so it should be compatible with any other mod. I run a heavily modded Skyrim, so I can't really tell if there are any conflicts. Let me know if you find some.

Q: How quickly will you respond to comments and questions?
A: I'm not around much on the Nexus due to work, so it may be days before I respond to questions and/or comments. 

Q: Will you make separate esps for each heroine?
A: No. That's why I put them in Whiterun's Hall of the Dead where no one else puts followers. Just recruit who you want and leave the others there. If someone wants to make an installer, just let me know.

Q: Will you release a CBBE/UNP/etc body version or a version with alternate hairs/skin/etc?
A: Check the optional downloads or feel free to edit the files yourself.

Q: Where can I get the armor you use in the screenshots?
A: Most can be found around the Nexus (see below), but I've made UNPB/UNPBO versions of them. I'm working on permissions to add these as the default armors to the heroines.

Q: Can I change body/skin/etc?
A: If you know how, feel free to do so. Remember that I have sought permission to distribute this mod. If you make alternate versions and plan to post it somewhere, you must gain permission from those authors first.
