This mod overhauls a large amount of characters from Kris Takahashi's Interesting NPCs. It includes all humanoid followers, spouses as well as many quest-related characters.
Apart from Interesting NPCs no mod is required to use this overhaul as all necessary assets are already included.
The NPCs are not using a custom skin texture, so you can use whatever body and skin mods you want.
A full list of overhauled NPCs can be found here.

The only hard requirement to use this mod is Interesting NPCs.
While not technically required, my sculpts are tailored for use with Expressive Facial Animation Male and Female Edition.


These are entirely optional, but I recommend using the following mods:

Female Skin
Bijin Skin or Unslaad Skin

Male Skin
Skysight Skins, Vitruvia or Dizona

Eye Reflections
llygaid Eye Improver or Fair Skin Complexion
Note: Fair Skin has a FOMOD installer, so you can pick just the mouth or eyes textures when installing, in case you don't like the skin.



This mod conflicts with vanilla hair replacers such as VHR, HMB and Shiva's and you will get blackfaces regardless of load order unless you create a patch. For more information on this, see here.

As children aren't covered by my mod, it's compatible with all overhauls out there. Load order does not matter in this case.

IMPORTANT: If you want to mix NPC overhauls, you absolutely must make sure your load order is correct. NPC overhauls are prone to breaking if you don't know what you're doing. I am not responsible for any bugs caused by combining overhauls without taking care of proper load order and compatibility.

My mod already covers a large amount of NPCs. In case you want to cover even more NPCs, I recommend installing Hott Interesting NPCs and let my mod overwrite it, so you get a mix of both.

You can also use smaller overhauls like Interesting NPCs - 3DNPC - Overhaul, Interesting NPCs Visual Overhaul (not really small), Zora Customizer or Amalee Customizer. These mods should be loaded after mine.
