Normally aabicus is the expert when it comes to nude mods and what works best, but frankly I think nude mods work very well in Skyrim. It’s the sort of fantasy genre where you can just about imagine people running around naked. At least, some of them. But while installing a nude mod in Skyrim, there are caveats and things that can be improved. And how do we improve mods? With more mods, of course!
In today’s article, we’ll have a look at some mods that make the nude experience so much more enjoyable, while also giving you a little peace of mind. Funnily enough, some of these are also helpful if you spend to much time playing as a dragon. Because dragons are naked too.
Anyway, let’s get started.
No Naked Comments
In real life, I don’t think most people would actually tell you to put clothes on. They’d gasp and look away, but no one wants to deal with a naked person out in the open. In Skyrim however, people will not shut up about you being naked. Ever. The No Naked Comments mod very simply stops that from happening. Now you can run around and no one will bother you. After all, it’s your game, these NPCs shouldn’t be telling you what to do.
Skyrim – Enhanced Camera
What’s the point of being naked if you can’t see yourself being naked? While Skyrim DOES have the option to switch to third person view, it’s actually a bit cumbersome to use. Enhanced Camera though gives you a nice blend of both first person and third person, allowing you to see your body, while also preserving normal first person combat. There are other mods like this (for example Joy of Perspective) but Enhanced Camera is the mod I’ve had the least issues with.
Speaking of not being able to see things, I never understood why there’s absolutely nothing in terms of sleeping. You go to bed, see a menu and then black out. Then, when you wake up, you are standing exactly where you are. What? Does everyone sleep in armour or something? Immersive Beds fixes this issue by giving you a nice little sleeping animation. The same animation NPCs already use but Bethesda didn’t give to us.
Animations does the same thing that Immersive Beds does – allow you to see yourself doing things. Animations however adds, uh, animations to things like looting chests. This means you spend less time in first person seeing nothing and more time seeing your glorious ass picking flowers and picking locks. It’s a simple change but it does make you feel more immersed, rather than seeing things magically appear or disappear.
Clothe Dead NPCs
It’s always annoyed me that I’ve been leaving naked corpses around after looting dungeons. I always kinda felt bad. Sure, they’re bandits, but surely they deserve some dignity? Clothe Dead NPCs is a must-have mod for me that solves this very problem. I mean, you don’t want naked bodies everywhere, do you? And if you’re like me, you always have too much armour that you need to get rid of anyway, so you might as well put the armour on corpses. It’s less awkward than walking past a dungeon filled with naked bodies, at least.
UnderC is a mod actually aimed at people who use nude skins. Simply put, it allows you to switch between being able to take off underwear and not being able to take off underwear whenever you want. If you have a magic ring equipped, you can remove an NPC’s undergarments and make them completely nude. Otherwise they just have the default non-nude mesh with built in pants. This is great if you share games with someone but it’s also got a more immersive aspect as well – I mean, normally, when you strip corpses, you don’t take the underwear too, right? Of course not.
Dead Body Collision Fix
It always irked me that you can’t stand on top of a defeated dragon while it turns into bones. And that you can’t properly pile corpses up. Dead Body Collision Fix is a mod that fixes this issue, so you can pile up corpses as much as you like. What has this got to do with being naked? Nothing, really. But I know someone out there probably wants to pile up corpses, naked or otherwise, so here we are.
