Detailed Faces

>> Description

This little mod increases the face detail of the human and elven races, male and female.

I made this for personal use, thought some of you might like it as well so decided to upload it here.

On the comparison pictures you see the old skin on the left, the new skin on the right.

On some of them it's a bit hard to notice due to the low light.

This mod affects the following races, male and female including

old characters:





Dark Elf

High Elf

Wood Elf


>> Updated to v2.0

Detail of the skin textures has been increased by using a seamless human skin

texture resource. I filled an 4096x4096 image with this resource, then

decreased the size to 2048x2048 and applied it to the original face textures.

More detail has been added to the lips, specular maps have been made less

glossy but more detailed.

>> Installation

Use 7zip or WinRar to extract the files.

Move the Data folder to your Skyrim folder.

You can find the Skyrim folder here: Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

To those who are new to using Elder Scrolls mods:

- You do not have to extract the .bsa archives. The folder provided by

this mod has the same structure as the inside of the .bsa archive, it will

override the textures that are included in the .bsa file.

- Do not worry about the Data folder that already exists, the folder provided

by this mod will be merged with the existing folder, it will not be overwritten.
