Hi I have few mods installed but everything was fine until I started my Skyrim SE today. I realized that Serana and other vampires have black faces? Do you know what might cause this problem?

    This one sounds suspicious: Dark Face Fix [Dark Face Head Body Colour Mismatch Bug Fix], but honestly -- do you expect someone to iterate through the 50+ mods you've posted and figure out which one (or a combination, more likely) is causing this? May 14 at 23:13

    That being said, what troubleshooting have you attempted yourself? Is your mod load order optimized (eg. via LOOT or similar)? As Timmy Jim asked, have you attempted disabling mods? Have you attempted to find the problematic mod yourself? (A binary search is generally effective -- eg. disable the first 50%; did the problem go away? now you know the problem's in the first half of them ... otherwise it's in the second half. then disable half of the ones in the problematic group; rinse and repeat until you identify the culprit.)

  • Hi I don't expect someone to iterate through them but I think it is caused by some of that NPC graphic mods. Yes I tired LOOT to optimize my load order. But it seems it didn't work

I resolved the issue. I discovered that it was caused by these mods:

  • WSCO - Windsong Skyrim Character Overhaul SE [WSCO 1.1]
  • RaceMenu [RaceMenu Anniversary Edition v0-4-19-9]
3
  • How was it caused? What was their load order? How did you find out it was these mods that were causing the problem?

  • @Joachim Well I thought it was one of those NPC mods. As you can see I have had more of them and there were not compatibile with each other. I can paste there my load order if you want to to better understanding of the problem. Also I disabled that Dark Face Fix [Dark Face Head Body Colour Mismatch Bug Fix] as @Roddy of The frozen Peas mentoied - it seemed usless and not working. Also I am installing mods with Vortex and it gaves error messages it there are missing masters in mods ,not compatibile or if they are redundant and it always offers you solution. I also always use LOOT.

  • But you also really need to know what you're doing, which is something most users forget. With longer mod lists especially, it helps to be aware of what files are modified or overwritten. I'd still recommend Mod Organizer (but haven't used either in a while). LOOT can help, but doesn't spot all incompatibilities. Dark Face Fix was a temporary solution, for specific cases, so that doesn't say anything :)
