About this mod

This is set of male Imperial character presets for racemenu. These are .jslot files that will adjust your character creation sliders to match what I made. If you want to look exactly like the screenshots read the description for full mod list.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Update to version 1.1:

Added ECE presets for all three age groups of Quintus. See images for comparison.

Added a Breton version for Quintus-Young preset. See image for comparison.

Description:

These are .jslot files, meaning it will adjust the character creation sliders in Racemenu to recreate Quintus's appearance. Depending on what mods you have installed your Quintus may look different from mine. 

If you want to replicate exactly what you see in the screenshots you'll need to install Skyrim SE Script Extender, RaceMenu, and all the head part mods (hair, scars, eyes, etc.).

-Racemenu

I've included photos of Quintus with no ENB or reshade mods activated to show how he looks "naturally". I don't play Skyrim with ENBs turned on so this is more or less what to expect during regular game play.


Installation:

Manual Installation:

Drop the .jslot file into the following directory:

data>skse>plugins>chargen>presets

Mod Manager Installation:

Click the button and let it run.

Design Notes:

While I was creating Megdra I had the idea of making a set of presets for the same character, with each one representing a different age or stage of life. The idea was two fold: 1) more presets for you! (and much less time for me to make completely different faces), 2) added roleplay to artificially "age" your character. 

Unlike my other presets I don't have a hard idea for Quintus's background, other than that he joined the Imperial Legion and was/will be a veteran of many battles. You might envision his backstory changes depending on the age you decide to play with.

Young-Arrives in Skyrim eager to join the Legion.

Adult-A seasoned veteran, recently transferred to Solitude.

Elder-A captain with a long history of distinction serving in the Legion, and a veteran of the great war against the Aldmeri Dominion. Sent to Skryim to assist General Tulius to expunge the Stormcloaks once and for all.

I recommend using Alternate Start -LAL- to get the most out of roleplaying him.


FAQ:

Q. Is there an ECE versison?
A. I may, as time and energy permit, create ECE look-a-likes of my racemenu presets. If a particular preset interests you and no ECE version currently exists leave a request in the comments so I know.

Q. Why do the ECE and Racemenu presets look different?
A. The mods use different, head morphs, sliders, body parts, etc. Currently neither ECE or Racemenu support a "Face Export" feature: the ability to turn your character's head into a complete pre-packaged object that you can then stick on any other body. Because of this, I have to do my best to imitate in ECE what I created in Racemenu so it's impossible to create a true replica.

Q. Why use Racemenu over ECE?
A. Because I prefer it. In my opinion ECE "human-izes" the non-human races to the point that the non-human races loose the features that set them apart in the first place. Also, ECE screws around with race data leading to incompatibilities with numerous other mods that change or affect race abilities/stats.

Q. What happens if I don't have all your recommended mods installed?
A. Then nothing should load into those slots. Example: if you don't have KS Hairdos your character will have the same vanilla hair prior to loading the preset.

Q. The face complexion doesn't load with the preset. Why?
A. I don't know. It's a racemenu thing. The complexion isn't changed no matter what preset you load. You'll have to adjust it yourself.

Q. Your screenshots show a tattoo/body paint/body/head/hand/feet overlays but it isn't included in the preset. Why?
A. Because it's too easy for people to incorrectly install those overlays, leading to purple body parts due to missing textures. It's far easier for you (and me) to leave the overlays out of the preset altogether. If you want to use the same overlays as I, then download the relevant mods and have at it.

Q. I don't see any presets even though they are in the correct file path.
A. Try saving a preset yourself (e.g. on the preset tab press F5 and save whatever face you currently are using). This will then create the correct folder path using racemenu itself. Then try re-downloading my preset and see if it shows up.
