Desciption: Calientes Female Body Mod Big Bottom Edition is a model and texture mod for Skyrim and was developed by Nexus user, Caliente.
Mod Developer: Caliente
This is a Skyrim body replacer that replaces the base female body with one that is a little more curvacious. If you loved the HGEC bodies from Oblivion, you will feel right at home with this one – it is based on the proportions of that mod.
The body mesh is a completely custom mesh, at more than double the resolution of the vanilla Skyrim body. Included is a completely custom texture and reworked normal map to fit the body. Also redone are the mesh weights for animation, offering improved deformation in many poses.
Note to modders: If you wish to create
armour/clothes for the 3.2 bodies, use the provided modders' resource meshes. These are identical to the 3.2 meshes, but have no BreastGravity applied; breast gravity on a clothed body looks bad, so don't use it.
CBBE comes with three main options for body shapes: Curvy, Slim, and Vanilla, and these also come in an optional 'nevernude' version. The nude textures are shaved, but there are mods and Caliente's Texture Blender for further options.
Curvy, known as 'standard', is based on the original CBBE, and comes with large breasts (D-H) and wider/fuller hips and bottom compared to the vanilla body.
Slim is a version of CBBE with smaller breasts (A-C) and hips. This can be found in the Options folder of the main download.
Vanilla is based on the Vanilla body, and made to work with CBBE textures. The breasts are lowered/reshaped to make them look more realistic, and go from C-E, while the waist is thicker than the other CBBE types, and the pelvic region shaped more 'typically'. This can be found in the Options folder.
Nevernude are the Curvy, Slim and Vanilla bodies that have underwear. These are found in the Options folder.
BodySlide An application that allows you to customise the body shape to have pretty much any proportions you want. This tool also has the Breast and Butt Physics option; if you wish to use T/BBP, you must install a T/BBP mod before you install any part of CBBE/BodySlide to prevent CTDs. Also for BodySlide is an 'Extra Presets' pack, which includes twenty presets where the shape is 80-90% identical to various Oblivion and Skyrim female body mods, such as HGEC, UNP, ADEC, etc.
CBBE Official Face Pack is for those who don't feel like searching for a decent face mod to go with the base CBBE textures. Also includes 'Eyebrows Match Hair' in two shades and three styles (six sets in total), and a 'dirt to beauty marks' option. This can be found in the Options folder in the main archive, and does not require the use of TexBend/TexBlendLite.

Visual Guides for Manual Installation
Nexus Mod Manager.
Download and install as you would any other NMM mod. This version comes with a FOMOD scripted installer to make it easier for you to install the body of your choice and the various options with the FacePack, should you also choose to use that. If you wish to fix seams with a non-CBBE face mod with TexBlendLite or use the BodySlide options, you will then need to use those tools separately after you installed the body.
Delete all the files you installed/use NMM to uninstall them. See 'Troubleshooting' for a list of what/where these files are. You may still need to uninstall files manually if you try uninstalling with NMM.
If you have an issue with TexBlendLite or BodySlide, reinstall and make sure you are running as admin/your Skyrim folder isn't 'read-only', and for BodySlide, ensure you have the latest version. If you still have issues, make sure you've run Skyrim through the Steam launcher at least once since installing, so that the game gets registered on your computer registry, which the utilities look to.
Skyrim/data/textures/actors/character/femalefolder and delete any femalehead_sk.dds files you find.
Skyrim/Data/meshes/actors/character/characterassets directory, and allow any overwrites.
If the mod appears not to be working, the most common cause is incorrectly placed files. Please ensure the files below are in the correct place. Also, if all else fails, try removing all other mods prior to installing CBBE. If it works, then you likely had a conflict of some kind with another mod. You can figure out which one by installing your mods one at a time and checking to see which one breaks CBBE.
