About this mod

Genders in Skyrim serve no purpose. This is a simple mod that aims to change that in a non-intrusive, non-game-breaking, yet lore-friendly manner.

Genders Are Boringly Indistinct

Choice of gender does nothing beyond provide more options for aesthetics (hairstyle, bodyslide, etc.)
Gabi adds some minor tweaks based on gender as well as race to provide some additional diversity in characters. The goal is to provide meaningful distinction without adding game-breaking or over-powering abilities.

Gabi is not intended to (nor does it) encourage or prevent certain play styles. The bonuses are intentionally small for this reason.



Gabi applies its changes via a single perk. This perk is added to the character (following character creation) using a simple script that runs once and stops. NPCs receive the perk by way of SPID (Spell Perk Item Distributor). As such, SPID is a requirement in order for NPCs to receive the perk's benefits. No race records are altered to ensure maximum compatibility.

The perk will update if changes are made to the character (if RaceMenu is used to change race or gender the perk will adjust accordingly).
The bonus is not listed on the Active Effects menu to prevent additional clutter on that screen.
Vampire races are included.

Version 8+ Changes:
 - Concepts for bonuses were pulled directly from lore (see quotes).
 - Gender tweaks are primarily based on conditions within the concept, and differ only in magnitude rather than the bonus themselves for consistency.
 - Improving balance between both genders within each race as well as between races themselves was a major focus for v8.
 - Bonuses have also been adjusted with the goal of complementing any Race Overhaul (and compatibility) in mind.
 - In a couple cases (Imperial, Khajiit) the bonus is tweaked to not work on the same race to reconcile NPCs not directly benefitting from the bonus.

V8+ was designed with Race Overhauls in mind, and intended to compliment any currently available Race Overhaul.
