About This File

Tera Elin Race

Skyrim Legendary Edition






[ LORE ]____________________


Building corporeal forms around tiny fragments of her own divine being, the goddess Elinu created the Elins. Their physical appearance reflected the youngest daughter of Arun's naive wish for beauty and peace.
Their queen governs both the Elins and the Poporis, with whom they share a history and a mission. The queen and her forces have proven their wisdom and diplomatic prowess in peace, and their tactical and fighting prowess in war.


The Elins have one driving goal: if it’s not good for nature, stop it. Older and wiser than they appear, they join with forces of nature and mortal races to sweep their enemies from the battlefield. Their speech is often dark, forthright, and otherworldly, and their sense of humor can border on vicious. Other races find the Elins' manner and behavior off-putting.


[ ABOUT ]____________________




Race Powers and Abilities
1) Race Power.
Circle of Elinu Protection.
Cast a protective circle that heals you and and your followers while negating damage by half. Must stay within the circle.


2) Race Ability.
Fortify Shouts.
Reduce shout charge time by 20% only during daytime.


3) Race Specific Shouts as Granted When Using the Summon Elin Ring.
Voice of the Elins (Normal).
This gathers the summon Elins to your location and slowly heals them. Range is limited.


Howl of Fear (Lycanthropy)
If your playable Elin character has the ability to transform into a werewolf, the Howl of Fear werewolf shout becomes the Voice of the Elins shout. Effects are the same as the Voice of the Elins (normal).


4) Race Specific Spells as Granted When Using the Summon Elin Ring.
Elin Ward (Adept Level Restoration).
Increases armor rating by 80 points and negates up to 80 points of spell damage and effects.


Elin Types
There are 2 sets of Elin ears and tails, HDT and non-HDT (ears are static, fox and cat tails use basic animations).
The non-HDT ears/tail sets are included with the default Elin hairs like from the game, Tera. These can be selected from the HAIR slider under the HAIRS category in the character creation menu (console command: showracemenu).


The HDT ears/tail sets are standalone and can be combined with any hairs. These can be selected from the ADDITIONS slider under the HAIRS category in the race creation menu. These ears/tail sets require HDT Physics Extension which are included with the main Elin packages.

[ FILES ]____________________


These mods are not required, but I recommend them because they provide enhancements and/or fixes when playing as an Elin.


1) MFG Console by Kapaer. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/44596
Adds eye-blinking and face expressions that was broken by the last official Skyrim patch.


2) Enhanced 3rd Person Camera. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/29990/?
Customizes the 3rd person camera to make it adjust to the Elin's height. Works with Enhanced Camera.


3) Enhanced Camera. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/57859/?
Fixes the bug with the camera being either too low or too high from the Elin's true POV. Works with Enhanced 3rd Person Camera because the mod uses the position of the 3rd-person view.


4) HDT Sitting Height Fix. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/53995
Fixes the Elins clipping into chairs, benches, and other areas where the game allows adult characters to sit down. Some minor clipping with the legs when sitting in large furnitures such as noble chairs.


I advise caution when using the Size Does Matter mod (http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/41304) as this removes the 'racetoscale' marker from many of the furnitures, bar counters, railings, forges, and crafting tables. This will cause the Elins to sink into, even below, beds and bedrolls and will increase clipping and misalignments with enchantment tables, alchemy tables, forges, and crafting tables.


None. The Elins do not require additional mods to be playable


If you are using RaceMenu, Enhanced Character Edit, with or without Dual-Sheath Redux, then XPMS Extended (http://www.loverslab.com/topic/25971-xp32-maximum-skeleton-extended/) is required.
For XPMS Extended, you will need to pre-install the required files before installing XPMS Extended.



If using RaceMenu

IMPORTANT - Regarding the RaceMenu mod.


RaceMenu will save your presets with all of your customizations, however, when loading an Elin preset, RaceMenu will fail to include the Elin ears and tail and certain face customizations.
Exporting the head and importing it will result in the same errors.
The main Elin packages include the PreCache Killer file; RaceMenu uses its own form of Precache Killer so the file I included is redundant and can be removed. Go to DATA > SKSE > PLUGINS and delete "showracemenu_precachekiller.dll".


If using Enhanced Character Edit



[ MAIN ]____________________
Elin Race Main Pachages
Description: Adds the Elin as a playable race. The Color-Match Edition contains the main files + Elin ears and tails that changes color to match the color you give to the Elin hair.


File: 2016Jan29_MAIN_ElinRace_v2.7z


File: 2016Jan29_MAIN_ElinRace_ColorMatchEdition_v2.7z


The main Elin packages also includes the basic Elin voice replacer which can be updated with the Elin Voice Complete mod (separate installation for now) to include dragon shouts from Dawnguard and Dragonborn.
Also included are HDT Physics Extension (for the HDT ears/tail and optionsl body), ShowRaceMenu PreCache Killer (too many custom hairs will cause lag and possible crashing when using the character creation menu), and SKSE Memory patch.


The main Elin packages also includes the Summon Elin Ring which, when equipped, summons Elin warriors and mages. When equipped, you will see some menus which customizes the summoning:


Sets the level of the summoned Elin.


The health penalty you suffer when summoning the Elins and when they die in combat.
1 = minimum penalty.
100 = max penalty.


Select how many Elin you want to summon.
You must have a high level of health in order to summon the maximum amount. The summoning will ensure you will not dies if your health is low, but the result is fewer Elins will appear.

[ UPDATE ]____________________

CREDIT:  Krail3r for the idea and the voice files.


Description:  The new voice pack contains all of the dialogue and dragon shouts but, with options to replace the Throw Voice shout with animal sounds from the game.

The problem was that the taunts when using Throw Voice would not play (the 3 dragon words did).  So far I can't figure out how to fix this so I decided to replace the shout words with animal sounds based on Nature's Lure - Throw Voice Shout.  The result is rather amusing as well as more fitting than the original taunts.

Included is the Elin voice plugin which removes the subtitles for the taunts if it happens to show.  If you don't use subtitles than it would not matter. 

If you are perfectly fine with the original Throw Voice shout not playing the taunts then continue using version 2.0.


DOWNLOAD:  ElinRace_Option_VoiceReplacer_Complete_v2_1-20180502.7z





You must uninstall version 2.0 before installing version 2.1 because the update does not contain the voice files for the taunts.  I can't say for certain if the game will glitch and you'll hear both the animal voices and the taunts so it's best to remove the old then add the new.


Version 2 will add all of the dialogue and shout voice files automatically, you just need to pick one of the animal voice sounds for the Throw Voice shout.



Description: Upgrades the Elin voice pack that is included with both main packages. The upgrade adds additional voices for dragon shouts from Dawnguard and Dragonborn.


File: OPTION_ElinRace_Voice_Complete_v2-20170222.7z


Additional Information: http://www.loverslab.com/topic/20121-2017-jan-10-elin-voice-complete-skyrimdragonborndawnguard-tera-elin-race/?p=1823861


NOTE #1: The v2 upgrade uses a different plugin than what is included with the main packages. After installation, you MUST DELETE this file: ElinRaceVoice.esp
NOTE #2: The only dragon shout that does not play the associated voice file is Soul Tear. Why? I do not know.



[ OPTIONS ]____________________
Description: Angelwei modified the horse riding and idle animations from Skyrim Horses Renewal.  The modifications fixes the Elins clipping into horses


To download Angelwei's file + link to required mod, Skyrim Horses Renewal.  Screenshots included.


[OPTIONAL ALTERNATIVE]____________________

If you use the vanilla horses from Skyrim or the Convenient Horses mod, I moved Angelwei's files so that it replaces Skyrim's animation files.  The modified anims will now work with the vanilla horses or with mods that use the games original horse riding animations.


ElinRace_OPTION_Skyrim HorseRiding Animation Fix by Angelwei.7z



[ OPTIONS ]____________________
Description: Adds the Elin idle animation and select (Castanic) combat and non-combat animations used only by the Elins.


FNIS v6.3 or newer (http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/29624/?).


File: OPTION_ANIMATION_TeraElin_v2_0-20170720.7z


During installation, you will have the option to select 1 of 2 versions of the Elin idle animation. The 2nd option is to install the child sitting animation which reduces clipping into chairs and benches (there will still be some clipping).



  1. Install FNIS.
  2. Install Tera Elin Idle/Tera Animations Redone.
  3. Run the generator for users app (GenerateFNIS_for_Users.exe) located in DATA > TOOLS > GENERATE FNIS FOR USERS (folder).
  4. A pop-up window will appear. The bottom half contains patches and other required files; you only need the top 3 options which are the patches. Select the following:
    • GENDER Specific Animations
    • SKELETON Arm Fix
    • xp32 PC Exclusive Animations (PCEA)

[*]Click on the "Update FNIS Behavior" button to create the behavior files


Description: All-in-One (AIO) hair packs contain some of the mor popular Skyrim hair packs such as, Apachii and hairs by zzJay. The AIO, HDT hair pack contains hairs with physics and animation.


HDT Physics Extension (files are included with the Elin race main packages; a separate installation of HDT-PE is not necessary).


File: Elin-mods-mega-links-update-2016Nov15.txt


The file is a text file and not the actual hair packs. The hair packs are too large to be directly uploaded to Loverslab so the text file contains offsite links to the hair packs.
Avialable files:
2016Nov15 OPTION ElinRace AIO Hairpack v2.0.7z (BSA)
2015Oct27 OPTION Loose Files ElinRace AIO Hairpack v1.0.7z (loose files)


2015Oct29 OPTION BSA ElinRace AIO HDT HairPack v1.0.7z (BSA)
2015Oct29 OPTION LOOSE ElinRace AIO HDT HairPack v1.0.7z (loose files)

Description: The body replacer pack provides 2 type of bodies for CBBE or UNP, flat-chest and curvy, along with 3 texture options. The separate texture packs provides additional texture options for CBBE or UNP.


Body Replacer
File: 2015Nov13_Option_NewElinBodies_BBP_TBBP_v3.7z


Extra Textures
File: 2013Oct30_Option_CBBE_NewBody_TexturePack_v2.7z
File: 2013Oct30_Option_UNP_NewBody_TexturePack_v2.7z



Each body option adds their own plugin. Make sure the plugin is low in the load order; the plugin needs to have higher priority over the Elin NPC replacer and Elin followers so that they use the same body and to prevent their own body overwriting the Elin body replacer.

Description: One mod is the ported Elin maid outfit, the other mod contains some of the Skyrim armors converted to the Tera Elin body.


NOTE #1: The maid outfit and the converted Skyrim armors are for the default Elin body. The Elin body is a port from the Tera game so it's neither CBBE nor UUNP/UNP and cannot use CBBE or UNP textures.


NOTE #2: The converted armors contain only the cuirass or body armor. You still need to use the original Skyrim boots and gloves.


The Tera Elin body which is installed with the main race files.


File: Armor_TeraBody_ElinMaidCostume.7z
File: Armor_TeraBody_ConvertedVanillaSets.7z
Description: Thanks to Skyramiel, this replaces the converted underwear set with a topless version.


Download: http://www.loverslab.com/topic/20121-2016sep07-redonereuploaded-part-2-elin-mage-followers-tera-elin-race/?p=1682818
Description: Replaces certain essential and generic NPCs. Adds new, generic NPCs to Whiterun and Winterhold College. Replaces some enemies and adds additional enemies to the leveled list.
Thanks to TDA, the Elin mage instructor at the Arcanaum will demonstrate elemental magic without inflicting harm and aggro'ing followers.


Hearthfires DLC (for the Falkreath housecarl replacer option).


File: Elin-mods-mega-links-update-2016Nov15.txt


Like the AIO hair packs, the Elin NPC and Enemies mod is too large to be uploaded directly to Loverslab. The text file contains an offsite link.
Available File:
2015Dec11 OPTION Elin NPC and Enemy Complete v3.2.1.7z




During installation you will have the option to install the Falkreath housecarl, Rayya, replacer. You need the Hearthfires DLC for Elin Rayya or else your game will crash.


NOTE: If you have the Elin CBBE or UNP body replacer installed, move the body replacer plugin after the Elin NPC and Enemies plugins so that they use the same body.

Description: They can be found in Whiterun at the Drunken Huntsman Inn. They use the Tera Elin body.


File: 2016Sep06_FOLLOWERS_MiYa_and_YiKa_v2.0r.7z




Additional Information: http://www.loverslab.com/topic/20121-update-2016-august-11-patch-for-elin-dance-idle-animation-summon-elin-ring-mayhem-update-tera-elin-race/?p=471043


They have no special installation other than install after the main race pack.


NOTE #1: Before entering the Drunken Huntsman, create a new game save. If they do not appear in the Drunken Huntsman or their dialogue options do not appear, reloading the last game save will fix those problems.


NOTE #2: Even though they come with the Tera Elin body, the Elin CBBE or UNP body replacer might overwrite it anyway. If you want them to continue using the Elin body then move the body replacer plugin before the followers plugin.

Description: Firelin, Icelin, and Thundelin, three elemental mages, can be found in the Arcanaeum at the Mage's College of Winterhold. They use the Tera Elin body.


File: 2016Sep07_FOLLOWERS_ElinMageFollowers_v1_Redone.7z

[ MISCELLANEOUS ]____________________
Description: CBBE and UUNP/UNP Flat-chest and Curvy Elin presets for bodyslide. Simple conversion templates to convert armors to the Elin body presets.



File: 2015Nov22_ElinBodyPresets_and_ConversionTemplates_for_ElinRace1-6.7z

  1. Install Bodyslide 2.
  2. Install Elin body replacer pack (CBBE or UNP).
  3. Extract the Elin presets/conversion templates archive and copy 'CalienteTools' folder and merge with the CalienteTools folder where you have Bodyslide 2 installed.

When building the Elin body/hands/feet meshes, bodyslide will save them in the original folder for vanilla races. The Elins use their own folders. What you need to do is press and hold the CTRL key when pressing the 'Build' button. This will make bodyslide save the new meshes in the same folder as the bodyslide executable (Bodyslide.exe or Bodyslide x64.exe). Move the new meshes to the Elin (CBBE or UNP body replacer) folder and allow overwriting of the original CBBE or UNP Elin body files.
The folder path for the Elin CBBE or UNP body meshes is the following: (MESHES > ACTORS > 2chElin BBP body fix).


Tutorials for using Outfit Studio to convert armors can be located from the Bodyslide 2 page at Nexus. When selecting the Elin templates, you need to choose the second option to locate the template files.

After selecting the template you want to use, proceed as normal with the remaining tutorial.
