Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Caliente Female Body Mod v3.0 Big Bottom Edition
File Info: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Caliente Female Body Mod v3.0 Big Bottom Edition
Description: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Caliente Female Body Mod v3.0 Big Bottom EditionThis is a Skyrim body replacer that replaces the base female body with one that is a little more curvacious. If you loved the HGEC bodies from oblivion, you will feel right at home with this one -- it is based on the proportions of that mod.
Original file can be found here.
The body mesh is a completely custom mesh, at more than double the resolution of version 0.1. Care was taken to maintain match between vanilla head, hands and feet to reduce seams as much as possible. Included is a completely custom texture and reworked normal map to fit the body. The seams are blended with the vanilla texture to reduce visibility of seams. Also redone are the mesh weights for animation, offering improved deformation in many poses.
Note the overall size of the model was maintained as much as possible, so armor and clothing replacers already built using this body should require less work to include this version. However, the result of redoing the UV's, Normalmap and Texture is slightly reduced visual quality until those are replaced
Two primary meshes are included, a 'light weight' mesh and a 'heavy' one -- the primary difference is the size of the breasts and butt. This allows the in-game weight slider can be used to control the size of your character's features. Note that the neck, wrists, and ankles body will also grow larger with larger weights -- this is primarily to avoid seam gaps between hand, head, and feet meshes.
To install, copy the included textures and meshes folder to your skyrim/data directory. Get in game and take off the nearest female's clothes!
Two optional mesh files are included:
-- cause breast size to be fixed at the minimum size (only the butt is affected by the weight slider). To install, copy the fixedbreast_small\meshes folder to your skyrim\data folder after the main package has been installed. Only one file will need to be overwritten.
-- cause breast size to be fixed at the maximum size (only the butt is affected by the weight slider). To install, copy the fixedbreast_big\meshes folder to your skyrim\data folder after the main package has been installed. Only one file will need to be overwritten.
Note: This mod will not affect the appearance of your character when wearing any form of armor! (Except for when said armor has been modded to conform to BBE's proportions.)
to change your weight you can use showracemenu on the console OR use player.setnpcweight 1-100 on the console.
armor will not show your new body until that armor has been modded to fit. Industrious modders are out there helping with that effort, and I'm slowly trying to as well.
MxR on Youtube featured this mod (V0.1) in his weekly youtube special on skyrim modding. Check it out:
-=-=-=-= v 0.2 Features: -=-=-=-=-=
- Higher Resolution mesh provides smoother curves and lighting
- Improved animation weighting provides somewhat better deformation during animation (still some ugliness from the animations themselves -- weights can only fix so much). Shoulders, thighs, and knees are greatly helped by this.
- New UVs, both a blessing and a curse, allows for more detail in certain areas. The downside: old textures and normal map will look strange.
- New Texture and Normal map created from scratch. Necessary to match the new UVs, the texture is a cleaner, softer looking one than the vanilla texture.
--=-=-=--=-Before you download, please read the following:-=-=-=--=-
--This is a new, higher resolution mesh. I've attempted to keep the proportions as similar as possible to the original version. The new mesh WILL NOT automatically appear as part of armor replacers using the body.
--New Normal Map and Textures will cause some problems with armor replacers. While armor replacers using CBBE will not adopt the new mesh automatically, they WILL adopt the new Normals and Texture map. This means that cleavage, nipples and revealing parts of fitted armor replacers will look weird until they update their mods. Don't download this new version if that is a problem for you, and encourage your favorite mod author to update. Side note -- updating armor mods are no more difficult than the first time around, and maybe easier, so it hopefully won't be hard to get everything updated.
I do not plan to redo UVs or normal maps in a significant way from now on, so it should be safe to assume that this will be the last time that this rework will need to be done. My apologies to those industrious mod creators.
-- Texture mods that fit the original CBBE will not fit this one. They're close -- likely only a small adjustment needed. Again, apologies for wasting other peoples hard work with this change.
OUTFITS that use this body mod (there might be more that I don't know about)
* The Nocturnal Dress (Fine clothes replacer), by me (v0.1)
The v0.2 install package contains two additional mesh files that can replace the original files to cause breast sizes to remain fixed to either the small size or the large size. See readme for details.
Caliente Body Slim Body Edition (optional file download) v0.2
This is a variant on the Caliente body where the breast size varies from small to medium. The slider effects the butt size (as per CBBE) and breast size. Due to small size of the breasts, a new normal map and textures were created, and are incpomatible with the standard CBBE textures.
Caliente Body NeverNude (optional file download (v0.2)
This is simply a version of the normal CBBE meshes with the Vanilla underwear fitted to them. To install you MUST install the standard CBBE or CBBE slim first, then install the NeverNude version. Note that if you install this over the Slim models, you will loose the smaller breasts until I am able to add underwear for those sizes as well. Currently, I haven't yet had the time to adapt the same process to the Slim models or the SillyHuge model, although I will soon.
Athletic Nude Women by Valstien0
Valstien was gracious enough to add a version of his fine athletic women textures that work with CBBE v0.2. Check them out for some greatly improved muscle tone: http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=563
Beast Race Beautiful skins were kindly adapted to this mod by watshisface: (Khajiit and argonian skin textures, as well as some textured underwear) (v 0.2)
-=-=-=-=-= Version 0.1 options: -=-=-=-=-=-=-
Caliente Body Standard Bottom Edition (optional file download) v0.1
This is a variant on the Caliente body where the body's bottom is fixed in size to the smallest. The sliders by default adjust breast size and arm size, but an included file allows the breast size to remain fixed at their largest size. This file can be used as a standalone version of the body, and replaces all files in the BBE edition.
Caliente Body Natural Big Bottom Edition (optional file download) v0.1
This is a testing variant of the BBE body where the waist has been increased in size to a more natural scale. The waist size remains fixed (no slider) but it is aimed at addressing the desires of many users for a slightly less skinny body. An option is included for larger arms (also fixed size), the normal BBE arms are approximately 46 % maximum vanilla beefiness --- with this option, the arms are set to their maximum beefiness. (muscular normal map option coming soon) This file can be used as a standalone version of the body, and replaces all files in the BBE edition.
Caliente Body Shaved Look (v 0.1)
A texture file that replaces the normal skin and gives the girls a nice fresh shave. Requires one of the Caliente Body mods to be installed first. (V0.2 note: the default texture for v0.2 is a shaved look)
A nice Kahjiit skin by Nalim666 that works nicely with this mod: (v 0.1)
Thank you to Thepal for the nice nude females texture. (v0.1)
Also thanks to raiar for the original HGEC body, and Exnem before him :)
- Improved mesh (more polygons for smoother surfaces and better animation/shadows and improved anatomy) [DONE!]
- Improved texture (may requires head/hand/feet texturing too...) [Partly DONE]
- Improved normal map (a few hard to spot bumps to smooth out and the nipple modeling is sort of silly) [Mostly DONE]
- More combinations of mesh variation (fixing shoulder size and c hanging breast size, etc.
- Armor replacements for at least some of the varieties
Thanks for trying my body mesh!
