About this mod

SSE port of koiwe's excellent Botox for Skyrim from oldrim. Replaces every female NPC in the game using only meshes and textures, so no esp conflicts with other mods. Includes additional fixes to resolve the dark elf blackface bug.

Permissions and credits
VERSION 1.1 UPDATE:  Apologies for the 1.0 version which existed for about 5 minutes... there were issues with the BSA format in oldrim that I wasn't aware of.  Those issues are resolved.  This mod is now available as a BSA or as loose files.  There's no .esp at all for the loose files version, but install order will be important if you're using other replacer mods.  See the sticky Post for my recommendations on which one to use.


This is an SSE port of koiwe's excellent Botox for Skyrim from oldrim, with full permission from koiwe, and all credit for its development goes to him.  This is IMO one of the best replacers on all Nexus because of its unique virtues:  It cleans up and adds the excellent KS Hairdos hair to every vanilla female NPC in the game in an attractive, lore friendly and utterly compatible way.  The .esp does nothing except load the .bsa which contains nothing but meshes and textures.  No bloat or mission creep whatsoever, as most if not all other replacers seem to suffer from.  This makes it excellent for use as a base replacer over which you can overlay whatever other replacers you want, knowing you can do so without worrying about conflicts or ever running across hideous vanilla female faces and hairs again.

In addition, for this SSE version, I've included additional fixes to resolve the dark elf blackface bug.  Many thanks and credit to posters lightsourced and wheelchairwillie who did the hard work of figuring out *how* to fix the elf blackface bug and shared the method on the oldrim posts page.

The following is copied from koiwe's oldrim page, with no editing at all so links are to oldrim mods - don't try to run USLEEP with this!  While he still considers BFS beta, I've been running with it ever since its release and aside from the elf darkface bug which is fixed in this SSE version, I've encountered no other issues:



Careful, this mod is still buggy. For some players, random NPCs become invisible.

This mod replaces all female NPCs faces (1000+, including no-names, bandits and vampires) with autogenerated heads and KS hairdos hair.

Races included: Breton, Redguard, Imperials, Nord, HighElf, DarkElf, WoodElf and Orcs. They are autogenerated with custom morphs. Although the polycount on the hair has been reduced, it is still a load heavy mod and therefore not recommended for low-end PCs.

Botox - Textures (optional)

Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch

This mod is compatible with everything. The .esp is empty and only needed for .bsa loading.
It is possible to use this mod in combination with other head replacer mods if you want more variation.

Tested with NMM (Nexus Mod Manager)

Load Order:
If you use Botox in combination with other head replacers, place botox.esp above the other replacers in your load order. It is an empty plugin needed for BSA loading.
