Skyrim Special Edition Version


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.

NOTE: This mod has been abandoned, as I have moved on to Skyrim Special Edition. It has been further developed for that game and that game only, sorry.


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
Cleaned with SSEEdit, no ITMs, errors or base form deletes of any kind.

The Mod comes in three flavors:


Default children and clothes replacer ONLY


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?

- Includes everything from Episode One
- 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" children 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 girl vendor in Solitude that sells exclusively children items


Includes, updates and expands on Episodes One and Two. Ever notice how there are all these factions that have no method of reproducing themselves? They just spawn in replacements endlessly. Now you will see the missing bad kids of Skyrim - Forsworn, Bandits, Vampires, Witches, and Warlocks. And they hate you, just like their parents. This game is all about difficult moral choices, now you have a new one to deal with.

Also features new non-hostile wild encounters, runaway kids that are hunters and traders. The displaced farm family after a dragon attack has a child to worry about now.

Note: for those squeamish about child mortality in this version, the default download makes all children immortal (The Kids ARE Alright). I know, I know, even when mean they are too damn cute to kill. You have to download The Kids AREN'T Alright if you want the hostiles to be mortal. 


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. Note: I like clean mods! Everything is packed in a compressed archive! If you install other mods that have the default children extracted as loose files you will have issues, including CTD! I supply as an option the loose facegen files if you need a solution for this.
