CBBE SE Diffuse Map Options

Recommended Posts


Description :

CBBE Optional Body Skin textures (Diffuse Maps), plus matching hands, for clean or dirty skin, pubic hair variations, and nipple choices. All Diffuse map options in original 4k size, or now also in 2k size.

There are also Normal Map Options which are the same as on CBBE page, but in 2k size. So for different machine specifications you can mix them up to reduce VRAM usage .. 4k Diffuse + 4k Normal for the screen archers out there, 4k Diffuse + 2k Normal to conserve a bit of VRAM, or 2k Diffuse + 2k Normal to go back to vanilla Skyrim SE texture sizes. Personally I have 3gb VRAM so like the 4k Diffuse, but even though I can use the 4k normal aswell I prefer saving a bit and using the 2k normal .. In normal gameplay you will not really notice the very slight difference a 4k normal makes.

The textures in this mod are BC7 (Linear, Fine) format.
(They are not backwards compatible with Old Skyrim)

CBBE SE .psd Resources were used as the basis for making these textures in all cases.

If you also use the Normal Map Options, you can effectively produce many
more combinations of diversity with bump mapping of your choice ..
.. More defined Muscular, varying cleavage etc etc, giving a wide range of body definition.

Options included :

Requirements :

CBBE SE <- Install this first, then overwrite with the diffuse / normal maps of your choice.
Install order is important for this to work correctly.

Installation :

Manual installation - Use 7zip to extract the archive. Inside you will find a fomod folder with named images, which correspond with a named folder. Make your choice of folder, open it and then copy the texture folder ( and its contents ), then paste the textures folder into ..

~Path to game installation~ \ Skyrim Special Edition \ Data \  <-- In here

You are installing two files which replace the same files from CBBE SE, so you should be asked to overwrite, click Okay.

textures \ actors \ character \ female \ femalebody_1.dds
textures \ actors \ character \ female \ femalehands_1.dds

The hands file is of particular importance for the dirty skin options, to match at the wrist join.
CBBE SE (or its resource file) does not have its own matching dirty version of the hands texture.

If you also use the CBBE Normal Map Options 2k, there is just one additional file to install

textures \ actors \ character \ female \ femalebody_1_msn.dds.

Wrye Bash ( Wizard - Recommended ) - Place the zip in Bash Installers folder ( or drag and drop it onto the Wrye Bash Installers Tab ).
Right click the installer in Wrye Bash and choose Wizard, then follow the intructions and make choices.


Other Mod Managers ( Fomod scripted Installation ) - I believe it will install with Nexus Mod Manager, and the upcoming Vortex ( so long as it supports fomod scripted installers ). It will probably also install with MO aswell .. I cant test all possibilities because I do not use any of them.

Uninstallation :

Manual - Delete the two files ..

~Path to game~ \ skyrim special edition \ data \ textures \ actors \ character \ female \ femalebody_1.dds
~Path to game~ \ skyrim special edition \ data \ textures \ actors \ character \ female \ femalehands_1.dds

And if you used the Normal Map Options
~Path to game~ \ skyrim special edition \ data \ textures \ actors \ character \ female \ femalebody_1.dds

Then re-install the CBBE SE originals

Wrye Bash or other Mod Managers - Refer to their documentation on uninstalling your mods.

How do I get this topic labelled with Skyrim SE ?


I initially gave it Skyrim (Because Skyrim SE was not available from the drop down choice). Then after posting I edited the Tags, but that only resulted in adding an extra Skyrim tag, not a topic tag, then I re-edited to include Skyrim SE tag, but could not get rid of the previous Skyrim tag which is not a topic tag anymore ... Confused with forum tools :D

The description has been toned down somewhat for this forum, due to its adult content a lot of the images are missing here. To see more you need to log in at Nexus.
