Posting to move this back to first page near release. It is an SO7 mod as well. The sticky only has SO6.

But that is still useful for the other graphics only mods.

I touched up three of the models. Very small things like varied the size of the two stars and slightly darkened the inner foreleg on two colors where shadowing would highlight it brightly (the engine still will, but it makes it less jarring when it does). If you re-download you should get the new ones.

I also added portraits that match the skins. This is not like SiriusChill's with multiple portraits per color. SO7 does not support that as of this post. But at least the one and only portrait for each color matches the coat color of the skins set and is real horse picture, sometimes retouched to make the markings match exactly and to unclutter background for such a small image. I also made them more headshots to match the other portraits included in SO7.

The go into your base Starters Orders 7 install folder, not mods. I am not sure where you installed it.

For the skins this is (install_directory)/3D/race/horses

For portraits this is (install_dir)/gfx/portraits
(do not use these with SiriusChill's, you do not need this for the skins to work) *

The zip files should already have the directory tree structure, so unzipping them into the base would work. Or to be safer, unzip into a folder you create somewhere to store downloads, then copy them to the base Starters Orders 7 folder. Then you can see which files I overwrite and make a back-up copy of the originals if you want. I generally do that with mods that over write files as re-copying the original files back is less annoying than reinstalling if I didn't like the mod.

\* I may make a version of their horse portrait mod, with colors sorted to match the my race skins. I did that for myself in SO6 but didn't release. But I put my portraits up for SO7 right before Mark added the ability to have more than one portrait for color, which is what SiriusChills's does.

Ive just overwrite the 3D folder is that ok? SiriusChill's Portraits now work with SO7 , will they be ok with your skin mod. Or is it the 2 portrait mods you cannot mix?

Just the two portraits. My skins are separate, and only touch 3D (in race colors).

Yes, that should now have the horses in races looking like the screenshots in the thread / descriptions first post.

I assume its is the horses folder I copy and paste into 3D > race for the skins ?

Can the skins be used with SO6 as well ?

Yes, they can.

Same caveat with the portraits though. Use these *or* the other one.
