About this mod

Replacing the low quality pixelated facetints used by NPCs (*all NPCs yes*) with 1K uncompressed variants, thus being actually high quality. Probably not good for potatoes.

Permissions and credits
This mod replaces the low quality pixelated 128/256 facetints used by NPCs with 1K uncompressed variants (as it should be, not saved in DXT1 or DXT5. That completely ruins it and puts out a greenish tint on the facetint, look at Unmasked Faces by AltheaR as an example). Includes a FSC and Mature Skin (basically an edited version of the lip texture by Maevan2 used with DomainWolf's VMHD) variant. Probably not good for potatoes. Uses assets from Vanilla Makeup HD - HD Racial Colors and Makeup for all Races and Genders by DomainWolf, Xenius Character Enhancement Complete by Xenius, Forsworn and Blackblood and Boethiah Tattoos 2K by evgirunslaad, and the eyeliner tintmask included in Dizona Body by Dizona and Khisartin/Letho00364. Didn't take any screenshots with Argonian and Khajiit because I don't have any decent texture replacers for them, and also I cannot see the difference so feel free to take pics. Maybe I'll update beast races. idk.

I will release 512-256 versions (and an SSE edition if you want) for people who like to save vram and own potatoes, all you have to do is ask. HUGE thanks to Nuukem for making SSE Creation Kit Fixes, as this would not even be remotely possible without it. Seriously. Give that person your firstborns. And a major thank you to the immensely talented and kind ShinglesCat for telling me it exists and saving me from a lifetime of dread.
