    See title. It's between CBBE or UNP. Keep armor compatibility in mind. I'm going to only be using one set of face textures in my upcoming Skyrim ports, so it's going be final. No, I won't be porting the body itself. Rather, it'll be the deciding factor in armors and textures.

    Personally, I'd go with the UNP body over CBBE. The UNP body is more versatile than CBBE since there are more body armor mods that actually work with the UNP body alone, while also causing no issues with the default armor sets at all. On the other hand, the CBBE body usually requires replacing the default armor with CBBE compatible sets from what I've seen, and the body armor mods seem to consist of armor sets that are almost always specifically made for characters that somehow have breasts the size of a fucking zeppelin blimp.

    Agree. Any suggestions on a face/hands texture? So far I'm liking Fair Skin Complexion for UNP a lot.

    Edit:

    Here it is on a Ningeheim/Breton hybrid:

    I dont know these mods, but I'd go with the exact opposite of what looks like FakeFactory female models.

    Neither are realistic, but I prefer CBBE because of BodySlide, so I'd say CBBE.

    For now, I'm just finishing the head. The male head is going to come after this and some hairs/armors.

    As I mentioned before, Bodyslide won't even be used. This is about proportions and armor selection.

    If I could actually find the texture mod that I was using a while back with the UNP bodies, I'd link you to it. It seems like it may have been pulled from the Nexus though, so I'll see if I can find one of the other sets I was using.

    Considering that UNP/UNPB and CBBE are body mods for female characters, the two options presented are only limited to female bodies. There are male body replacers as well, but those are made by different people from what I can remember.

    UNP actually looks decent, and towards weight 0 looks quite realistic.

    I like CNHF myself it doesn't look overtly idealized, but it hasn't been massively adopted by the community so there's hardly any content for it.

    Go for both. The more customization, the merrier.

    UNP looks more realistic and the mesh topology isn't a complete fucking mess when it deforms like CBBE does.

    There's really no contest in the geometry department.

    skin
    Real girls real skin, pretty much no comparison in that department either.

    Something messed up when I saved the normal map, so the SSAO was acting up. Here's a screenshot from HLMV.



    Only problem are the 16mb normal maps. Sigh.

    Did you edit the diffuse or something? The leather looks like it's had its contrast jacked up and you have weird shit going on with the pants and arms

    No, it's ported directly from the DDS files of the original mod. I can send over the textures if you'd like to tweak it.

    Nah not necessary, I ported the armor months ago when I was learning Skyrim to Source. Can you post a shot of the diffuse from vtfedit?

    Dat metal shders, could you give me the vmt codes there?

    I support this, double it if you use Seranaholic face, also Selene Kate follower mod is another suggestion

    VMT Codes (requires alpha-masked metal and a decent normal map):

    Code:
    	"$phong" 1
    	"$phongboost" "4"
    	"$phongexponent" 45
    	"$phongtint" "[.85 .85 1]"
    	"$phongfresnelranges" "[.3 .65 30]"
    	"$halflambert" "0"
    	"$nocull" "1"
    	"$envmap" env_cubemap
    	"$envmaptint" "[0.3 0.3 0.3]"
            "$normalmapalphaenvmapmask" 1
    Also, sure, I'll merge in the Seranaholic face real quick.

    Edited:

    Update: Seranaholic face preset added as the 7th total, into the 6th slot.

    Alright, I'm not exactly sure how to tint hair files. However, I'll definitely do my best to replicate. I'm thinking a dark, dark brown?

    Perhaps less dessaturation would look more like it, but just a bit.

    Is it possible to use the standard hairstyle for Serana as well for a body/skingroup? I kind of like the original a bit better than that.

    7 presets is still decent, and Kate is in a BSA file I'm too lazy to extract. If you want to do so, feel free, and I'll merge her right in.

    There's a loose file (non bsa), and if you want I can extract the bsa for you.

    I would like if you could use this appearance:

    The meshes are in the BSA. Extract if you really want her as a preset.
