This is a comprehensive, standalone children overhaul mod. I'm guessing from how the kids were implemented in Skyrim that Bethesda either 1) did NOT want to include children and were forced into it by popular demand, or 2) they just hate kids. As evidence, take a look at the meshes. They are built in the identical fashion as the monsters and beasts in the game! Small wonder they look like clones - they ARE clones! The goal for this mod was to make children that look like they would belong in a modern DX11 or 12 game, by pushing the boundaries within this old game engine.


Standalone children replacer mod - all children and clothing replaced, nothing else needed
Custom Racemenu face sculpts (sculpting tools were used, these are not from moving a few sliders around)
Custom (nevernude) doll-style body meshes and textures
Custom clothing reflecting the status of the children (Common x 5, Fine, Blacksmith, Merchant, Miner, Skaal)
USLEEP fixes incorporated
No potatoes

---------------------------- NEW VERSION 2 - A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS --------------------------------------

The battles in Skyrim have caused plenty of suffering, and was particularly hard on the children. The orphanage in Riften is overflowing. But the citizens of Skyrim have opened up their homes to orphaned children until they can find a permanent adopted home. Will you be a kind and loving adopted parent, or will you be an evil Count Olaf, after them for their (in some cases substantial) inheritance?

New Features

- Adds over 20 new children for you to discover in Skyrim
- New children have distinct daily routines through multiple ai packages per child
- New children races added (Boy/Girl - Dark Elf, High Elf, Wood Elf, Snow Elf, Orc, Khajiit, Argonian)
- Additional funny "Easter egg" race hidden away (it wouldn't be a TTR mod without them, would it?)
- Children are integrated into the game in various locations where it makes sense
- New clothing and armor that reflects the status and location of the children
- Stylishly dressed new vendor in Solitude that sells exclusively children items


I highly recommend using NMM. This mod should be last in you load order, or you risk getting dark heads. There are any number of mods out there that will overwrite the children and cause issues. If the children get dark heads from a conflicting mod, uninstall my mod and re-install again AFTER the conflicting mod, saying yes to overwrites. There are also some mods that alter the children clothing like I do, the fix is the same as the previous sentence.
