SkyHunks - NPC Replacer


This mod changes the appearance of many Skyrim NPCs. The aim is to make them look a bit better ("better" is, of course, a matter of personal taste). A few female NPCs are also "converted" to male (the female housecarls). No stats were changed, no clothing, nothing else - except that I made Ralof and Hadvar potential followers and marryable. Do not attempt to get them to follow you, or marry them, before the civil war is complete, or your game will likely break!


This mod also includes the functionality of Masculinized Level Lists. This means that generic NPCs such as guards, soldiers, bandits, etc, will now all be male, and you don't need that mod if you use this.

NOTE: Files are now hosted on Dropbox, due to their size.
If you use other NPC overhauls/replacers, and want this to take precedence, place it lower in your load order. Also, if your other replacers are supplied loose, then you'll want the loose version of this, overwriting any existing files, or you'll get grey face.


Do not install this into a game in progress, or you are likely to get grey faces and/or neck seams on the changed NPCs. Similarly, updating the mod in a game in progress will result in some of the NPCs often looking ... very strange. See here for neck seam tips.


Can You Remove....?
Yes I could, but if I start doing that, soon there will be no end of customized versions. But, you can do it yourself, it isn't difficult!

  • Get TES5Edit and install it.
  • Download and install the loose version of this mod
  • Start TES5Edit.
  • When the list of mods opens, rt-click -> Select none. Then scroll till you find SkyHunks, put a checkmark beside it, click ok.
  • Wait for everything to load.
  • Click the + next to SkyHunks to expand it, then click Non-Player Character.
  • Find the NPC(s) you want to remove.
  • Make note of the form number to the left of the name (eg, Ahtar is 0001325F)
  • Right click -> Remove. Confirm that you want to.
  • Once you have removed all you want, close TES5Edit, and confirm you want to save changes.
  • Navigate to your Skyrim install.
  • ../Data/Meshes/actors/character/facegendata/facegeom/skyrim.esm - delete the NIF files with the same name as the form number you noted.
  • ../Data/Meshes/actors/character/facegendata/facetint/skyrim.esm - delete the dds and tga files with the same name as the form number you noted.
  • Done. If you had already "met" the character in-game, you'll likely end up with grey-face so you'll have to start a new game.

Change Log

  • 1.0 - Initial release
  • 1.1 - Fixed Lukas' voice ... duhhh
  • 1.2 - Fixed grey face for Heathfires housecarls; fixed opposite gender anims for a couple of housecarls.
  • 1.3 - Added all the male guards. Surprisingly few of them, so I added a few more, for more variety.
  • 1.4 New NPCs: Arnbjorn, Banning, Bolund, Brynjolf, Captain Aldis, Delvin Mallory, Dirge, Falk Firebeard, Garvey, Gorm, Harrald, Klimmek, Maul, Mercer Frey, Nazir, Onmund, Orgnar, Proventus Avenicci, Saerlund, Sigurd, Thonnir, Vekel
    Tweaked skin tone for Ulfberth.
  • 1.5 New NPCs: Jervar, Idolaf Battleborn, Hrongar, Balgruuf, Angrenor Once-Honored, Oengul War-Anvil, Rolff Stone-Fist, Orthus Endario
    Tweaked Omnund, Solaf; Removed the guards added in 1.3, since they broke Masculinized Level Lists.
  • 1.6: New NPCs: Erikur, Kust, Jorleif, Galmar Stone-Fist, Lortheim, Jod, Horik Halfhand, Captain Wayfinder, Thoring, Siddgeir
    Tweaked: Bolund, Benor

    New NPCs: Ataf, Beirand, Briehl, Dagur, Gloth, Heimvar, Mikael, Severio Pelagia.
    Added more "template" imperial and stormcloak solders for more variety.
    Now incorporates the functionality of Masculinized Level Lists, so you don't need that mod if you use this.
  • 2.1 New NPCs: Hod, Lod, Tsun, Sven, Alvor. Plus there were several guards who have unique faces rather than using the templated guards I had already done, so I did those I found.
  • 2.2 New NPC, GuardSolitudeImperialDayMaleGuard, which I overlooked last time (at least two instances of this NPC can be found at Solitude).
    More tweaks to: Ralof, Hadvar, Bolund, Mikael, Solaf
  • 2.2 (2016-09-12) Uploaded a version for USLEEP users (SkyHunks_2.2_USLEEP.rar). Requires USLEEP. Install on top of one of the regular versions of 2.2, as only the ESP is included in the download.

  • 2017-03-16 - updated download links.

Final Note
If lore friendliness is important to you, you probably won't like this, since the KS styles aren't "lore friendly".
