  2. Once you have created an account, go to the NMM download page and click the “Download (Nexus Mod Manager)” button. This will download the NMM installer to your computer.
  3. Run the NMM installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install NMM. You may be prompted to install some additional software, such as the Microsoft .NET Framework. Make sure to install any required software.

Once you have installed NMM, you’re ready to start installing mods.

Downloading and Installing SexLab

The next step is to download and install SexLab itself. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to the SexLab page on the Nexus Mods website and click the “Download (NMM)” button. This will download the SexLab mod to your computer.
  2. Open NMM and click the “Add mod from file” button (it looks like a puzzle piece with a plus sign). Select the SexLab mod you just downloaded and click “Open”. NMM will then install the mod for you.
  3. Once the mod is installed, make sure it is activated by checking the “Mods” tab in NMM. If SexLab is not checked, click the checkbox next to it to activate it.

Congratulations, you have successfully installed SexLab with NMM! However, there are a few additional steps you may want to take to ensure SexLab is working correctly. We will cover these steps in the next section.

Configuring SexLab

Now that SexLab is installed, you may want to configure it to your liking. Here are a few things you can do:

  1. Open the SexLab MCM (Mod Configuration Menu) by pressing “Escape” and selecting “Mod Configuration” from the menu. From here, you can configure various settings related to SexLab, such as animation speed and the frequency of sex scenes.
  2. Install additional SexLab add-ons and animations. There are a variety of SexLab add-ons and animations available on the Nexus Mods website that can enhance your experience. To install these, simply download the add-on or animation and install it using NMM.
  3. Make sure you have the required mods installed. SexLab requires a few other mods to work correctly, such as SKSE (Skyrim Script Extender) and FNIS (Fore’s New Idles in Skyrim). Make sure these mods are installed and activated in NMM.

By configuring SexLab to your liking and installing additional add-ons and animations, you can enhance your experience and make your Skyrim game more immersive.

Troubleshooting Common Issues

Despite its popularity, SexLab can sometimes cause issues or conflicts with other mods. Here are a few common issues and how to troubleshoot them:

  1. SexLab animations not playing: Make sure you have installed the required mods (such as SKSE and FNIS) and that they are activated in NMM. Also, make sure you have installed any required animations for SexLab.
  2. CTD (Crash to Desktop) when starting the game: This can be caused by conflicts with other mods. Try disabling other mods and see if the issue persists. You can also try running LOOT (Load Order Optimization Tool) to ensure your mods are loaded in the correct order.
  3. SexLab animations playing too fast or too slow: Open the SexLab MCM and adjust the “Animation Speed” setting until you find a speed that works for you.

If you encounter other issues with SexLab, try searching the Nexus Mods forums for solutions or asking for help in the community. With a bit of troubleshooting, you can enjoy the full benefits of SexLab and enhance your Skyrim experience.
