Before we start let me first make one thing clear:
This project started out of curiosity and the goal to make a guide that wasn’t made before anywhere. The mod (which inspired me to make this guide) is named “Yiffy Age of Skyrim”. You can find it on LoversLab. If you follow this guide and get to the point installing “Yiffy Age of Skyrim”, please leave a thumbs up! The mod turns all citizens (Yes .. all!) into anthropomorphic beings. Each race is displayed as a different breed!
I also want to add that I am not that much into the whole “Furry” thing, but on the other hand I have an open mind. Fact is that this really turns Skyrim into a complete different game and after many hours this is like some needed fresh air.
Goal of this guide is:
- Making your game look gorgeous!
- Adding a lot of more mature themed mods.
- Turn Skyrim into an anthropomorphic Wonderland!
For people who just want to have a beatiful game with a “normal” NPC overhaul and more, I made an extra “Graphics and Character Overhaul” Guide.
For people who never modded before or are new: Feel free to use the “Nexus Mod Manager”. If you already know how to use Mod Organizer 2, use that one instead! Vortex is at this point not recommended!
For the NMM users: Most of the time overwrite any existing mod! If NMM asks for an overwrite just press: “Yes to all”. The only mod that never should be overwritten is “Yiffy Age of Skyrim”! (Here you can press “No to Mod”!)
In the past I had bad experience posting links openly into Guides so if you are too lazy to Google for each mod I suggest you taking a look at my “Google-Docs”-Document, which can be found on my profile page info!
If you have questions feel free to write a comment below! Because I am just a normal human being some mistakes might happen. If you have tips or additions, or see any problems in my modlist, feel also free to let me know and I will fix them!
Part 1: Fixes and Tools
For this guide you need a “Nexus” account and a “Loverslab” account. I am going to censor some modnames for the fact that they are not appropriated for the Community. Please refer to the “Google Docs” Document (Where you can also find direct links!)
If you already read my other guide about graphic overhaul, you might notice that some parts here are pretty much copy&paste.

Part 5: Relationships
One of my critical points ingame is that most relationships ingame (either love interestes or just friendly interactions) feel so cold and unpleasen. I tried to add some mods that will enhance your game in these regards.
