Review:
This is the mod I was using for my personal Guide. I think it's close enough to vanilla that it can be considered for STEP and is a large improvement to the children. It actually makes the children look like the fit into the game and could grow up to be the adults we're used to seeing. It will use whatever clothing, eye, and hair textures are installed, meaning they are the same as you'd see on the adult NPCs. Rustic Clothing is included in the Guide for their outfits. Finally, the most obvious thing is that this makes children more unique. No more potato-head copies of children running around! Obviously that comes with some necessary artistic deviation, however, this is the only mod that really feels like it got it "right".

There is a bug in the mod at the moment. It is simply an error that needs to be removed from the mod due to an USSEP update. Instructions for fixing it are not any more complicated that cleaning the master files...less so, actually. Else there is a mod available that patches it until the author returns to update the mod.

Is this the needed USSEP-patch?

Installed it as described on the mod page (without the patch linked above, but did the fix in xEdit)...

 

...and i must say i prefer this over Rustic Children i think. Looks very good indeed.

Rustic Children is just textures. This goes well beyond that. I've also never liked the look of RS Children (most popular children overhaul) because they always looked like they didn't quite fit the game. RS Children really only look okay if you make large changes to the adult NPCs too. It's not a vanilla-friendly mod. Simple Children seems to fill the gap nicely.

Works for me if you have already tested. Sounds like we add this and drop Rustic?

Yes, Rustic Children would be dropped as this mod provides the textures needed. Gamwich has recently said he needs to redo that mod so I'm assuming he's not completely happy with it.

Important with good instructions. I did as follow...

 

1. Install TK Children

2. Move the TKChildren.esp and TKChildren.esm to optional

3. Install Simple Children

4. Make this edit in xEdit: https://cptmcsplody....imple-children-

5. Install TK Children AIO Patch

 

Is this about right? Works ingame as far as i have tested.

Sounds right. The AIO patch will likely be incorporated into the STEP CR Patch (unless it's an ESL).

Got three light masters. FacegenForKids.esp, CRF_FacegenForKids.esp and FC_FacegenForKids.esp

Added compares to the OP. I don't think we really need a compare of the vanilla potato-heads, do we?

Prefer the Simple Children mod (we dont need to compare to vanilla potatoes).

In some cases i think Simple Children is abit to smooth and light skinned.

Probbelm with all face overhauls is that all characters seem to be sibblings.. but so does the vanilla.

Rustics heads are a bit to big in some cases.
