Hello!  Apologies for the "self promotion" but being a huge fan of STEP, I thought this could be of interest.

 

http://www.nexusmods...im/mods/58443/?

 

I made a new texture set from scratch, for all non-beast males, using vanilla as the strict baseline.  I tried to create the textures as if Bethesda released Skyrim in HD from the get-go.  I painstakingly drew every hair by hand, and on the "dirty" version put a lot of effort in to match similar patterns and markings as vanilla, including clumped body hairs.  There are 6 variations all together, the default being clean skin with body hair.

 

Have a look and let me know what you think!  Patches for popular body replacers are coming, but this was meant to be a "set it and forget it" mod for the vanilla game, without any additional fuss.

 

Thank you!

Looking forward to females so they will match. Really been disappointed in men and women looking for different.

These look really good. On watch until Better Males / SoS compatibility for me. :)

Why are there no Female Body Replacers in STEP? Just XCE?

I took the suggestion in the nexus forum thread and used True Daughters of Skyrim with this mod and they look great together. I usually always play with some type of face or elf replacer because I hate the ugly elves in skyrim. I'm going to try and use this and go without a replacer because this looks really great.

Thank you much, glad you like!  I tried to make the filesize as small as possible without sacrificing quality as well.  By contrast, True Daughters of Skyrim is completely uncompressed (all textures/normals/spec) and full 4K, so it weighs in at over 256MB for a single NPC (yikes! I had to make an optimized version for personal use.)  Mine is around 70 for 'Ultra', 30 for 'High'.

 

I'm still planning to make a matching female set.  Someone suggested the author of TDoS and I team up, but not sure about that; artistic visions are always hard to mesh!  But I digress!

 

Also, patches for Better Males / Better Male Feet / SoS are coming soon.

Because there aren't any that fit the vanilla female body. This is the reason for the STEP Female Overhaul.

What is the STEP female overhaul? Sorry, I've been away for a while. I'm still running a hybrid 2.2.8/2.2.9 install as well.

If I'm using STEP 2.2.9 and I wanted to use this mod, do I just swap this in for Better Males?

The download link is in the guide section of the forum, it's mostly based off of Mature Skin, I think.

Hm..can't seem to find it.

 

Also, if I want to use Skysight Skins, do I just put it in the same place as Better Males?
