Hello. this mod is pretty amazing.  Unfortunately, it seems as though i cannot use high poly head alongside 3BBB BHUNP body. is that not supposed to happen, or is it a problem on my end only? if so, how can i fix this!?!?    (For Exemple:  When i select high poly face part in racemenu, the breast can glitch out and the physics stops working properly).

Thank you!

Excellent addition to the High Poly body!! You just created what was missing. Even a Vanilla NPC now looks awesome! I use your method to convert my NPC and the xEdit scripts are helping a lot.

I do have a glitch though when I try to export from the CK a Khajiit or Argonian Head. I revewed the changes made by the script and they look correct in xEdit, I guess I'm missing a mod in the CK because I have the typical Red sign when I try to visualize it in the CK. The result is a black face in game.

Are there pre-requisites for non humanoid to load other than expessive face morphs?

Thank you

Thank you very much for such a great mod!. I got the update to the Anniversary Edition and, unfortunately, it has stopped to work. I am getting a CTD as soon as the initial logo of the game appears, which otherwise functions correctly when I disable the mod in MO2. Could you please update it for the Anniversary Edition?

Finallly after a fully modded quality Skyrim you can now have a character face blend in like it is supposed to be and have the looks of a finished modded revamped game. Thank you, thanks a lot!

I only have one issue with the enb and eye lashes, when you move the camera the eyes become light an the eye lashes do too (you then see a sharp edge of light near the lashes).
I use a ultra wide screen and I think ENB works worse on that so it might be something most of you won't even see this.

This mod is just an absolute blessing. Impressive total piece of fine art!

The last version (v1.3 on 07/30/20) allows even compatibility to Expressive Facegen Morphs... it's just crazy good.

Coupled with SAM/3BA, good skins, and so on... it's incedible.
Your work deserves to be EVEN more known. For every people involved in this, KouLeiFoh, Niroku, and every others that I'm not aware of : Kisses! Many mannnnnyyy kisses! :)

I simply cannot play WITHOUT this mod (if it is a mod rather than the most beautiful thing ever for creators, artists, modders and gamers alike) As an artist myself I spend an insane amount of hours into my characters making them perfect, adjusting and tweaking every little face (and body) detail. I've always had issues with the human head in Skyrim, untill I found your mod, and I have to say.. THANK YOU for what you did for us and gave us this amazing tool/add-on for us to create the characters we've always wanted. This mod will never leave my load order.

That being said, I might be the only one but I only have one issue with this mod installed ~ (I run on 16 GB of ram, an i5 8600k and a Asus Vega 64 8GB OC) My game is stable af (while having a tone of mods installed, my load order and optimization is extremely well made with care ~ modding since 2016, I don't have crashes or other issues whatsoever).. so when I run the sculpt editor in my game (in racemenu) it lags and stutters A LOT, I simply struggle to make anything, and when I save the head sculpt (or preset) of my character and then load it at the same time Racemenu freezes no matter what (I am forced to save the game and exit, then load it back up to continue without forcing tasking manager my Skyrim). Now I know it might be only on my end, and besides this issue, I have the patience to make anything I want and I did after a lot of hours in there. That won't stop me from using this amazing mod (but wanted to let you know), again THANK YOU my friend for everything! 

Cheers!!

I just love this head meshes.. Been using it for a short time , and thought very few Presets for it  ( Cause I am lazy to sculpt a face myself ) I manage to use one and make my personal changes for it ..

ScreenShot139.thumb.jpg.dc9f7d033ed2630b648af2a9c9bdc0dd.jpg

However there is a slight step back for me and my Mods installed , I use Wet Function Redux  

Wet Function Redux Mod

And apparently the Wet function doesn't work with High Poly heads...At least that I know of .. If so and someone could share the Mod that makes it compatible please tell me ..

 

I will not change this Mod for another face so far cause its brilliant and flawless..so far no match for it ..

 

Thanks for the work ..

These meshes are simply unbelievable, they make your character creation 100x better and easier right off the bat. My character that I'd started before look like someone had used a chisel on her poor chin haha, this fixed that and fast. 😁

It's been a YEAR since i tried to install this mod. Never, never. I haven't manage to success once. Is this a curse? why.
I did change my face part to 3"High poly head.esm (00KLH_MaleHeadNord)". 
I reinstall the whole game downgrade, upgrade, patches.
I have total of 5 active mods in MO2 such as
RaceMenu se

Expressive Facegen Morph se

Expressive Facial Animation Female

Expressive Facial Animation Male

And High poly head 1.4 se

So why, it is still not working.

And after this comment i'll probably go post this somewhere too. Sometimes if you can't fix it yourself, you just got to seek other's help.
Also i rated this as 5 star because i still have faith in this mod, atleast for me.

      View File BodySlide Slider Sets for SAM Refits
      BodySlide Slider Sets for SAM Refitting
      This download contains tools you can use to help you create refits for SAM. 
      These files are meant for creating refits only. They are not meant to generate a male body to use for your game.
      Instructions:
      - Download BodySlide and Outfit Studio ( version 4.8.0 is the version I used to write the tutorial, but you can try using the latest version, it will probably work fine)
      - Download Caliente Tools Legendary or Caliente Tools Special depending on which version of skyrim you are making refits for. 
      - Drag the tools to your BodySlide install folder.
       
      The goal was to even further simplify the refit process so that anyone can do it easily. I have included sets for both the high poly body and the low poly body, and each has hdt and non-hdt options too. I was recommended to post this as a download so that people can see it easier, so that's why I'm doing it.
       
      I made a guide on how to use these to do your refits. You can find it here:
       
      There are some optional files included, courtesy of @ kreiste. If you use these files and find them useful, please go and thank him for all his hard work. 👍
      Weight 1 to 0 slider set, you might find this useful when you are refitting an outfit and having a difficult time, especially with the armpits and underarms. Merged References slider set, contains more varieties of body parts and combinations for you to work with. Images and details of these are below.   
       
      Credits:
      VectorPlexus & others for SAM
      KouLeifoh for SAM Light and HDT BBB for SAM
      Caliente for BS/OS
      Kreiste for making the additional slider sets, and Ulfberto for sharing his knowledge on that
