About this mod

These are men of Skyrim as I see them. This preset pack for Expired's RaceMenu contains 20 presets, two for each race in Skyrim. Take them, tweak them, reimagine them and make them uniquely yours. The only requirements are SKSE and RaceMenu.

Permissions and credits
Jannifer's Male Presets Version 1.4c

Update:  I have added  race and M to each preset so that you know what race to set for each preset.  I have also double-checked the file structure so that this will install smoothly the first time, because apparently I don't learn from my mistakes the first or the second time.  *sigh*

  RaceMenu by Expired6978
                       Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE)
                       no other mods required

Please note:
  This mod does NOT have an .esp file, so it will not show up in your load order.  This is as it should be.

Update:  I have made a few additional tweaks to three of these presets.

In response to popular demand (okay, three of my friends in the Nexus chatroom), here is my collection of male RaceMenu presets.  I have heavily tweaked and edited these presets since the first version, and I am much happier with them at this point.  In the screenshots, the smaller picture in the lower, left-hand corner is the "before" shot, and the larger picture is the after.  I did change my lighting and color settings a bit, which is why some of the skin tones look very different.  However, a couple of presets do have actual changes in the skin color.

RaceMenu's features have allowed me to create custom skin, hair and makeup colors; smooth the face and chin; make tiny adjustments to facial features and just generally create whomever I see in my head.  Take them, tweak them, make them truly yours.  They are only presets (the basic face shape and features), so they will work with any body, skin, hair or eye mod you care to use.  If you've created your own bit of awesomeness, post a screenshot.  I'd love to see what you do with my beginnings.

To install using Nexus Mod Manager (NMM):

  1. Use the Download (NMM) button.
  2. Highlight the mod in NMM.
  3. Click the activate icon, the second from the top on the left hand side of the window.
  4. Wait for NMM to finish.

To install manually:

  1. Use the Download (manual) button.
  2. Unzip the mod with your favorite archiving program.
  3. Drag and drop the files into the Steam\Steam Apps\Common\Skyrim\Data folder.
  4. Click "Yes" to allow the over-write.

To use the Presets:

You must have RaceMenu, or these presets will not work.

  1. With RaceMenu open, set the race for the preset you plan to use.
  2. Click on the Presets tab.
  3. Hit F9 to load a preset.
  4. Choose the preset you wish to load.  All my presets use my characters' names.
  5. Edit as you please to make my preset truly your character.

If you want your character to look exactly the way mine does, you will need the following mods:

1. SkySight Skins by fadingsignal  (I am using Version 1.5 and the young option.)
2. The Eyes of Beauty, including the Elves version, by LogRaam
3. ApachiiSkyHairs
4. Brows by Hvergelmir
5. Beards by Hvergelmir

For my Argonians, you will also need the following:

1. FAR -- Forgotten Argonian Roots by RedTox
2. Argonian Feather Hair by Kritta Kitty, now part of Hott Argonians by Kritta Kitty and Nerd of Prey

For my Khajiit, you will also need the following:

SC Khajiit Improvement by ShinglesCat

The presets for each race are as follows:

Altmer -- Telenn and Methryn
Argonian -- Stands Tall and Moves in Shadow
Bosmer -- Taliesen and Venahn
Breton -- Dafydd and Iain
Dunmer -- Drusahz and Inashind
Imperial -- Matthias and Julian
Khajiit -- J'zhimp and S'hazam
Nord -- Jan and Wilhem
Orc -- Rhetz gro Sed and Kahz gro Tesk
Redguard -- Alahemm and Kaleb

Future plans:

I will likely not be adding new presets.  However, it's very likely that I'll go back in and tweak these presets to refine them a bit.  I do that.  I can spend hours doing that.


If you use one of my presets for a follower mod, please drop me a note and credit me for the face.  It's only polite.

This mod is, and will remain, a Nexus exclusive.  Do not upload it anywhere else, period.


My  thanks to the modders whose work has enriched my own. 

My special thanks goes to the regulars of the Nexus chatroom, especially JustATaco, who kept saying, "You need to make another mod!".

And a callout to JustATaco and KunoMachi for testing my mod and finding out that I'd packaged it wrong.  *sigh*
