Any good CBBE skins?


Recommended Posts

As title says, anyone know any decent CBBE skins? I can't seem to find more than once or two different kinds yet at the same time they dont' seem to do much of a difference honestly. They look somewhat different but I'm not getting anything near the pics the author puts up.

 

 

So any suggestion?

Well there's always the issue of ENBs beautifying a picture above what the Mod is supposed to do, no?

 

I for one am using Fair Skin as a basis as well and then customize it via Racemenu-Overlays to customize it however i want. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/48705/?

Use the hands texture from the original CBBE texture. Face texture doesn't matter as long as it was designed with the original CBBE textures in mind. At the very least the normal maps get rid of those weird fat rolls on the feet that you see on almost every CBBE body.

 

And of course there is always this texture here, if you like veins that is. I don't so I don't use it. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/4686/?

 

 

And yeah, ENBs are pretty important to make skin look good, the most important setting here is the subsurface scattering. You can read more about it here: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/50835/?

 

Also, you should use gimp to play around and tweak any texture you come across. Increasing or decreasing things like brightness and saturation can make a huge difference on how the skin looks in the game.

Yes this is another issue as well. Finding a good ENB that compliments the looks as well. I just don't know what are people using to get those amazing shots. I've tried a few ENBs.. the one I'm using now is RealVision ENB. I'm not that big of a fan of it so I've been looking at others.

 

 

As for everyone's posts. I'll get back to you all! I've been trying a few but I rather reply once I've tried them all. Thanks again for the advice! If anyone knows of any others please feel free to post it! :D

Does anybody know how to make the skin oily like that? http://blog-imgs-66.fc2.com/e/i/h/eiheispot1/Leather_Clothes_UNPBO_1.jpg

 

increase glossiness of the meshes in nifskope, choose a sweaty specular map and you are done. There should be some tutorials floating around here on how to use nifskope to increase the gloss, as for sweaty specular maps, there are a couple one you can choose from.

 

like this one here http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/28946/?

 

SG female textures has a sweaty option as well. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/35267/?

Not sure if this is one you tried, but a popular one is

SG Textures Renewal

http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/35267/?

 

If you prefer a more real girl look, I would recommend conversion by Z0mBieP00Nani

If you read chinese or have 3dm account, I like the cbbe face/body skin collection used in

In terms of ENB to make skin look better, it depends what look you want to go for.  Personally, I like the brightness and how HRK ENB makes the skin of my characters/followers look

I haven't tried everything but I have tried a few so far, thank you everyone for your suggestions. I'm gonna be trying the rest tomorrow as this has already taken up a lot of my time to try the very few I did thanks to unexpected crashes that I had to figure out what was causing it. So what I've tried are these:

 

 

Mature Skin: It's an odd one.. I love the detail but I don't know if it's the look I'm going for. I'd love to give it to a single race if possible just so I see it around.

 

SG Texture Renewal: I'm liking this one so far, the skin detail is awesome. Still a little concern about some parts and how they are drawned. Nipples being one. The face is good but also does a mature look or at least appears mature on my character.

 

Fair skin: I had trouble trying to figure out what version/pack to use. The thread doesn't help much either. Also the pack I had downloaded only did the body and hands, not the face. So I'm at a lost with it. I'll have to look at it again. That crashing was really troubling for me.

 

Racemenu-Overlays: I have it installed I just don't know where to go to tweak and see the things it added. I'll have to look harder again.

 

This mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/4686/? Which really needs a better name than that. I've tried it but I'm not too thrilled about the veins, sadly.

 

navetsea's realistic female textures: Appears to be lore friendly? I don't know the snapshots didn't impress me so I didn't try it, sadly. I even look at the player pics that were posted and was still left undecided. It's a matter of taste I guess.

 

 

 

I know there are plenty of others I haven't tried yet. I'll save them for tomorrow. Not sure about that chinese site though, I haven't a clue what to do/get there. I'll have to look at that ENB too. The one I got is RealVision and I'm staring to dislike how bright it makes the world look and then how extra dark the nights are too. I understand needing a torch but with stars and a moon you should see more than that!

 

 

Anyway, thank you again everyone for your suggestions!
