Yes I want to keep the NPCs as they are, just tweak their appearace using the provided options like when you make your own character. And will probably try it out, but if there's a better option I'd use that. The NPC editor says it doesn't make changes to the original files so that is a plus, I'll go ahead and get the Creation Kit too. Originally posted by bradenm1 :. Ah, in that case you will want to avoid using the CK.
I suggested that as a no-external-mods-used solution. You're creating your own mod when using the creation kit. Altering many actors in the CK will be a time consuming process if you don't have experience with the toolset. Yea I did do this but it was using the Skyrim Creation Kit instead. Originally posted by Gubernub :. It's just using Creation Kit, you make what changes you want to the npc, then there's some kind of generate or export option, or face gen data I forget exactly, but last time I tried this it was using the SSE and I ran into some bug, not sure how this works currently Last edited by Gubernub ; 11 Aug, pm.

Fortunately, there is a way to change your character's name and appearance later in the game by using the console. Read on to learn how. Note: You can also use this to change your sex if you want, just don't change your race! See the notes later on. You can only change your character's appearance and name if you have the PC version of the game.
Before we begin, don't forget the number one rule of modding: Always make a new save before making any changes to your character's appearance or name. The same applies to all console changes.Who is the Strongest Enemy in Skyrim?
This will allow you to revert to a working saved game if for some reason changing your character causes any problems. If you change your character's race, your stats will change as well. This is because each race in Skyrim has different strengths and weaknesses—these are reflected in the different starting levels of different skills. Therefore, changing your race should, in theory, change your skill levels because your old racial modifiers will be removed and your new racial modifiers will be applied.
However, this isn't the case. Instead, changing your race may result in the following:. What about changing your race without using showracemenu?
However, this has the unfortunate side effect of causing the game to forget where your head texture is located. The next time you load the game, your head will be missing! Therefore, there is no known way to permanently alter your character's race without causing a bug of some sort. The weight slider allows you to adjust your character's build, but it doesn't give you any control over the character's size.
If you want to make your character taller or shorter, therefore, you have to use the console. As always, use console commands at your own risk. Note: Don't go crazy with these settings because it's very easy to blow your character way out of proportion.
Unless, of course, that's what you want to do. Usually adjusting them by. If you make your character too small or too big, you may run into gameplay issues. For example, I set one character to 0.
In response to a number of requests, I've started uploading screenshots of the slider settings for various NPCs from Skyrim.

Well, I don't like the appearance of the female companion and want to know if there is a way to change her appearance. You will have to wait until construction set comes out. If you are playing the X-box version. I'm sorry no.
If it's anything like Oblivion you might be able to kill her off wait a few day's and she might get replaced by another. I cannot guarantee this will work.
I suggest saving before trying it. If you have the Pc then it's all in the Console Commands. Currently with the tool set out on the pc you cannot change there faces only gender.

But u can find various DDS converters which will make the file editable in whatever image editor u have. U can then edit the DDS texture file to make the character look younger, older, have scars, or whatever cosmetic changes u might want.
As far as editing the mesh, I have not gone that far yet as there are a lot more steps involved in editing meshes. But basically u have to extract the mesh and import it to a 3D modelling programme such as Blender or 3DS Max and then change the head shape and then export it back into the.

I'm confused whether you mean your own characters here, or the Non Player Characters NPCs with artificial intelligence that interact with your own character. The only way to change the appearance of NPC or replace it is mods. RaceMenu allows you to modify your characters with greater detail.

Most NPCs can be killed, but there may be consequences later. There are also many generic NPCs in the game, most of which are randomly generated. If one dies for whatever reason, the game will eventually generate a new random replacement. Various other humanoid enemies e.
Most console commands will accept only one of the two types of IDs: the BaseID is generally used in cases where you want to spawn a new copy of an object, whereas the RefID is generally used in cases where you want to interact with an existing copy of an object. The BaseID points or refers to the immutable prototype or template of an object; the RefID points or refers to the actual in-game working copy of the object.
Your clone may have the correct dialogues and appearance, but many quest updates triggered by Esbern will not be triggered by your clone. Therefore, when using the console with unique NPCs you should always avoid the placeatme command. For example, to move a missing NPC to your location, use:.
