    Please read this and the mod description before posting or messaging me.

    I will be providing little to no support for this mod. The mod is pretty simple and should work fine out of the box. I encourage people to help each other in the comments though, if need be.

    FAQ:

    I'm having trouble downloading the file.
    The site is getting a lot of traffic. Give it some time, or maybe try downloading manually instead of using a mod manager.

    I don't see any difference.
    Make sure you have the files in the Data folder of your Skyrim Special Edition -- not the Data folder of your original Skyrim installation.

    I don't like it.
    Then you don't have to use it. Mods like this one are completely subjective.

    Can I use this with EEO/CCBE/etc.?
    Yes. You should install those mods over top of this one so they overwrite the files.

    Can you put this up for Xbox One or on Bethesdanet?
    A lot of the resources I've included are from modders who do not want their stuff uploaded anywhere but on the Nexus. So there will probably never be an Xbox One version of this particular compilation.

    What's that line on the neck?
    The body and head textures are separate files, and I haven't been able to completely eliminate the seams. I'm not exactly an expert though, so if someone else wants to try they'd be welcome to.

    The mod isn't showing up in the list in game.
    It won't. There isn't a plugin for the mod, it's just textures and a few meshes.

    This mod broke my game!
    That's highly unlikely, since it just replaces textures and a few meshes.

    My NPCs have black faces.
    This is not caused by TCM. It is caused by other mods that directly edit specific NPCs. Either that mod is missing the FaceGen meshes & textures for those NPCs, or you have another mod that is overwriting them.

    Can you make it look more/less ____?
    I did not make the textures in the first place, so no, I can't.

    This mod is dead! It needs an update!
    There is nothing to update. It works fine, and requires zero maintenance. Even when the game updates, this mod will still work.

    Question: Can I copy this mod files to the Legendary version of Skyrim (aka "Oldrim")? The Oldrim version seens to make some Orc and Dark Elf NPCs to have mismatched head and body colors, but for some reason this issue doesn't appear on the Special Edition version of this mod.

      Meshes (nif files) are not backwards compatible with LE. Also, SE allows for newer/better compression schemes in texture files. I don't know which compression format they used for these textures, but they also may not be backwards compatible.

      I use this mod as a base, so it loads higher in the order. It may catch a few NPCs that my other mods don't, but because it's only textures, etc, it's no biggie. Plus, although the author isn't around, this only effects vanilla characters and those haven't/won't change.

      What do you use on top of it?

      I do load TCM first and then I have some hair mods, diversity, eye mods, scars, brows... though it gets confusing as I don't know what mods just effect the player and what also effects NPC's and when Facegen is required, which I have never used.

      Sorry, K, I missed this somewhere along the way.

      Not counting all the tweak mods (such as all of Shiva's stuff), what I use to improve NPCs are these:
      -TCM (this mod)
      - Tempered Skins for Males
      - Distinct People
      - Distinct Husbands
      - Dames of Skyrim
      - The Bijin mods
      Then if I want certain people to carry over I use an xEdit patch.

    See my problem is this: "I will be providing little to no support for this mod".

    I will not be providing an endorsement then. You create a mod and say you pretty much refuse to help people if they have some trouble with it. Works out of the box? Hardly. I installed this, in the proper location and it's not in a protected directory like program files. It doesn't work for me. Everyone looks the same.

      I guess he'll just have to make do with the other 41,769 endorsements.

      Did you pay him for it? I'll wager not.

      In fact, I'll endorse him just because of your rudeness.

      Works fine for me BTW.

      Your not entitled to anything im afraid

      this mod only messes with textures and a few meshes there really is not much to it and its nearly impossible for it to possibly ruin your game. This mod works perfectly fine I have used it for a long time as it looks great with a body mod like cbbe/unp! its not like were dealing with scripts or overhauls here...

      Whenever someone takes time out of their day to use their skill to create or post a great mod like this instead of acting like spoiled ungrateful entitled children we should instead say thank you and be respectful! And should any problems arise we should simply be polite in asking for help and make sure it is not our own fault first or a mod conflict!

      please grow up and learn some manners bean town fan!

      Nothing wrong in people taking up for an author who created something using their talents and free time. Also nothing wrong with calling out entitled behavior.

      Or to see immature* idiots* who can't spell, “spell check” or recognize whining by another idiot* because iit is the Same behavior they would engage in.

      yo Pendragg0n, as a teacher I can honestly say that bad spelling is hardly an indication of stupidity or immaturity. One of my smartest kids this year is dyslexic; she can't spell to save her life but the girl is sharp as a tack. My stupidest students tend to be the ones who spend more time nitpicking about others and less time fixing their own issues. Proofread yourself before calling out someone else's bad spelling.

    So does this effect every single character in the game?

    Does anyone else use this with CBPC without issues? I'm not even sure TCM is the issue (unlikely). For some reason some of the bodies this mod edits don't have physics, while other generic vanilla NPCs and follower mods do? CBPC FAQ says an overhaul mod is conflicting with it so I'm pretty sure it's either TCM or one of the Bijiin mods I'm using. I don't think this alters body meshes though, right?

      Physics problems? I don't think so. It's true the mod contains a few meshes, but they're mostly for feet and hands. So there may be some obscure chance but I'm thinking it unlikely. Make sure this loads higher in your order than mods such as Bijin.

      Oh, and also keep in mind that some clothes and armor mods don't have physics, which is also true for some NPCs/follower mods.

      This mod is hosted right here on the Skyrim SPECIAL EDITION Nexus, take a guess.

    Fantastic mod, my only gripe is the fact that it doesn't remove the 'dirt' on the face of some NPC. Does anyone knows of a mod that does it?

      Yes. Just load Bijin after this mod (assuming you want the Bijin faces) and it should work.
