This mod extends the fantasy skintones available in Vanilla BG3 by adding both lighter and deeper tones to all Fantasy skintone color families featured in the game. It also adds a number of additional options.

22nd December 2023 Mod Content Update v1.1Added 223 skin tones

-⋆-

The following color families were expanded:
**Ice | Lichen | Dusk | Ash | Wisteria | Amethyst
Gold | Ochre | Olive | Sage

Moon | Wood | Vampire | Smoke
Sulphur | Chili | Red | Pink | Orchid | Purple

Violet | Azure | Storm | Aqua |Green | Lime
Dryad | Marid | Fey | Decay

Orcish Grey | Orcish Green**

The expansion includes 4-6 lighter and 4-6 deeper tones for each of the mentioned color families.*Lighter tones, deepest to lightest: pale, fair, faint, palest, barely, touch of
Deeper tones, lightest to deepest: deep, rich, vivid, deepest, potent, fully

*The amount of tones added per color family varies based on the vanilla tones already available & how the colors performed at lighter and deeper tones. For certain colors, further expansion was possible; for others, adding further tones might have severely skewed the color, created significant overlap with other shades, or resulted in (unintentionally) splotchy complexion.

Requirements

I recommend using Improved UI & BG3 Mod Fixer alongside this Mod.
I have not tested it without these mods, so I can't guarantee this mod will function as intended without them.

-⋆-

This mod functions normally alongside other mods that add more colors to CC.

Besides color mods, this mod should also function properly alongside others that modify CC, such as those that add new hair styles, faces, or tattoos. But I have not tested every mod like this out there - if you stumble across any compability issues, please let me know and I'll see what can be done.
