About XCE - Xenius Character Enhancement

XCE is a compilation of all my work on the enhancement of the characters in Skyrim.
The latest version also includes content based on the work of other authors.

What it does:

- Adds more detail to skin of faces and bodies
- Gets rid of angular shapes caused by compressed normal maps
- Adds a lot more detail to the eyes
- Makes the fingernails more visible
- Removes jagged edges from the lips
- Adds more detailed, healed scars
- Makes the warpaint look more weathered
- Makes the face dirt more detailed
- Adds high quality female feet
- Gets rid of neck seams

This mod is for you if:

- You like and use all of my work
- You hate to download a bucketload of separate files

This mod is not for you if:

- You don't like my work at all
- You only use a few of my mods

Other facts:

- This is an ongoing project
- Separate files will stay available
- New additions will be released separately
- Once the Creation Kit is available new content besides replacements will be possible as well

Currently integrated mods:

Detailed Faces
Detailed Bodies
Detailed Lips
No More Blocky Faces
High Quality Eyes
High Resolution Scars
Weathered Warpaint and Improved Dirt
High Res Face Maps for Men by Geonox (Edited to fit body skin color)
FemFeet by Phygit (Edited to fit body skin color)
Lashmaker Eyelash Alpha Resource by Mr Dave (Edited)

Optional:

Custom body patch*
Clean skin for females
Character normal maps (For those who do not use the official HD texture pack)

  • This will simply replace the face textures with slightly edited ones to make them compatible with any
    body replacer. This will only work properly if the custom body is compatible with Skyrim's original
    face textures.

It's possible that I will create new body textures in the future instead, but for now this will have to do.

Use the Curse client to install the mod.

Manual 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

Optional features have to be installed separately, same installation instructions apply. They can
be found in the "Optional" folder. Always install these after the main mod.

    Can you edit the characters once they are already made?

    For my computer there is no difference at all in performance. (Running a AMD PII 720BE X3 with 8 Gig 1600Mhz cas 7 mem and a XFX NVIDIA 285GTX)

    Its interesting, the only thing that stops me downloading this is wondering if it makes my game more graphic intensive. My lil puter has a hard enough time as it is with Skyrim.
