Description

This mod covers all 104 named  adults in Haagfingar Hold, which includes NPCs from the city of Solitude, Blue Palace, Castle Dour, Dragon Bridge, Solitude Stables and Sawmill, and Katla's farm.

(Do note that this mod excludes Serana. Her appearance is very subjective so I decided not to include her in this)

The vast majority of these NPCs were created using real life people as references which took a lot more time but I think gave really good results in the end. General Tullius was actually modeled off of his voice actor Michael Hogan.

Requirements

USSEP (Unofficial Skyrim SE Patch)
Expressive Facial Animation Female
Expressive Facial Animation Male

The mod was designed with the version of the High Poly Head that was made to work with Expressive Facial Animation. Using this mod without Expressive Facial Animations installed can cause issues such as mouth clipping or eyes looking odd. It's not a hard requirement but to avoid any issues you should have it installed.


A Few Things to Note

There is an optional version of the mod in the download section that removes female npcs already covered by other mods.

There are 8 NPCs that I removed head gear from, they are Horm, Greta, Katla, Fridrika, Aia, Silana, Angeline, and Michel Lylvieve. The vanilla hats and hoods are so poorly designed it just looks better to have the NPCs use hair instead. If your using this on a new game there are no issues. However, these characters will be naked if you install this on a game where you have already met these characters. To fix, walk up to the npc, open the console, click on the npc, type resetinventory then hit enter.

I've also changed any female characters that used male animations to use the female ones.

Mod Suggestions (to make it look like screenshots, they're not requirements)

I have left the faces, bodies, and eyes to use whatever textures you have (if any) installed because everyone's preference is different. That being said, for best results these are the mods the replacer was designed with and I highly recommend them.

Tempered Skins for Females (Screenshots us the Young Rough version) or alternatively Biijin Skin (for a younger more prestine look)
Skysight Skins (just the normal face textures, not younger option, and less veins body)
Superior Lore-friendly Hair (rough version)
Beards (retextures)
Brows (just for retextures)
Mild Complexions (I use the age 40 from this and age 50 from tempered skins)
Authentic Eyes (for all humans) and The Eyes of Beauty ( I only use the elf eyes from this)
Lamae's Gaze (for the vampire eyes)
