SAM High Poly Conversion 1.5

   (12 reviews)

6 Screenshots

About This File

This is a high poly conversion of SAM meshes.  The resulting meshes are smooth and contain around 4x the amount of vertices while still being usable for general gameplay.  It started out as something for my own personal use, but I decided to share it with everyone.  Compatible with SAM and SAM Light for both LE and SE.

High Poly Body Mesh

  • high poly body for both SAM and SAM Light variants
  • underwear was given high poly treatment
  • there are some minor sharp edges on certain poses due to weights
  • if you're on a low end system and worried about performance, stick with the default body mesh

High Poly Genital Mesh new

  • high poly genitals for both SAM and SAM Light
  • smoother edges are noticeable when zoomed in

High Poly Hand Mesh

  • high poly hands for playable human and beast races
  • new mesh is based on the vanilla HandMaleBig mesh
  • optional fingernail mesh to enhance details
  • hand mesh v2 requires manual texture editing for fingernail textures

High Poly Feet Mesh

  • symmetrical feet meshes (original mesh had a smaller right foot)
  • optional toenail mesh to enhance details even further
  • feet mesh v2 requires manual texture editing for toenail textures

High Poly Tail Mesh new

  • high poly tail meshes for Argonian and Khajiit races
  • vertex weights smoothed to look less blocky during movement

Refits

  • full vanilla refits made specifically for high poly SAM
  • minor clipping may occur during movement
  • currently does not include:¬† briarheart body mesh or USLEEP/USSEP changes

Fingernail/Toenail Mesh Texture

  • v1 mesh uses a separate texture for the fingernails/toenails.¬† Color won't change, but certain skin tones might make the nails look out of place.
  • v2 mesh requires the fingernail/toenail textures to be on the same texture as the hand/body.¬† This allows the use of the skin shader to change the color of the nails to match skin tone.¬† Use the provided texture resources to copy and paste the fingernails into the hand textures and the toenails into the body textures.

Installation

If using a mod manager, just follow the installer.

Manual Installation

  • 00 and 01 - high poly body + genital meshes, select between SAM or SAM Light (cut or uncut)
  • 02 - hand mesh, select between high poly hand with or without fingernail meshes
  • 03 - feet mesh, select between high poly feet with or without toenail meshes
  • 04 - high poly tail meshes for Argonian and Khajiit
  • 05 - refits, each subfolder covers a specific armor part (body, hand, feet), base folder covers all armor that does not include skin

Took me a shamefully long time to realize that SAM and SAM Light use different texture mapping. Other than that this is absolutely vital.

Excellent! This was a great upgrade, ive disabled the body for the moment until its got HDT support but man what a great job you did on the whole thing, the hands and feet were the most in need of help but damn the body really became a lot better too with the extra virts.  Great job man. :)

It was good when it worked. Now when ever I take off my Argonians clothes the game crashes, does anyone know why that might be? Those are all the mods I have loaded, I didn't get this issue last time.

Works well. Though it's not clear that you need to remove SOS textures and meshes to use SAM Light texture addon

This is a great mod, with the texture add-on by the same author, and the patched tempered skins face, I have the males in my game looking just how I want. The higher polycount, and hands and feet with actual nails is a game-changer, finally putting males at the same level of detail females have with the likes of CBBE.

I have a question though: how do you get clothing texture variants to work? In my game, clothes like merchant clothes only show up in their brown variant, even when characters have the blue version equipped.

A major improvement on an already legendary body replacer! A perfect compliment to your High Poly Head mod! In both LE and SE and it's fantastic to have such finely detailed character to work with! Especially since I can use the same character in both LE and SE for the first time ever because of the compatibility! With a little converting here-and-there for other mods I used in LE. I never liked the bulky/muscular look of SoS, and always wanted something more boy-ish or Twink-like and this definitely helps. Muscular character look proper with large torsos and big arms, while lower-weight characters (like mine) enjoy a slimmer more toned athletic body. So I don't have to worry about Ulfric having a Twink body, despite him being this hardened warrior. All this without any editing to the mod or additional skeletons. This creates great diversity.

From my testing, I can't download this mod anymore. HTTP error 403. Which simply means this download link isn't working properly. However I did use it before doing a clean restart. And I can say it's very well done, so I'll happily change my review once I can access it again. 

Edit: Resolved! For anyone else, try turning off your VPN. My internet is already slow, so that was just too extra causing it to fail. Guessing that has something to do with the security set up. Likely caused the 403 error as well. Either way not likely an issue most people have.

      Welcome to the Unofficial SAM "Full" User Guide
      ABOUT THIS GUIDE
      This is a simple guide intended for new users who are looking for a walkthrough of the basic functions of Shape Atlas for Men by Vectorplexus. It assumes that the user has successfully installed SAM and its components and is now seeking guidance in making use of SAM's main features.
      DISCLAIMER 1: I am just a long-term user who was in no way involved in making SAM or any of its assets and has no insight in SAM's coding. As such, some pieces of information might be slightly inaccurate. Corrections and suggestions are always welcome.
      DISCLAIMER 2: This guide is specifically for the original "SAM Full" release for the old 32-bit version of TESV: Skyrim. Later unofficial releases such as "SAM Light" for SSE/AE do not have the same functionality provided via the MCM.
       
      WHAT IS SAM?
      SAM is a male body replacer mod for the old 32-bit version of TESV: Skyrim and is meant to replace and go beyond the capabilities of its predecessor, Schlongs of Skyrim (aka SOS). It introduces a wide variety of body forms, also called morphs, that can be assigned directly or randomly to male characters in Skyrim. That way, it's possible that no two male NPCs will look exactly the same. This is achieved by introducing three basic body types:
      "Normal" - Similar to the vanilla body. Ranges from skinny to, well, normal.
      "Samson" -  Muscular, top heavy body. Wide shoulders, small hips. Adds muscle definition to the body.
      "Samuel" - Fat, almost pear-shaped body. Narrow shoulders, wide hips. Adds softness to the body.
      To create a virtually endless amount of body shapes, the Samson and/or Samuel morphs are "injected" into the normal body on a scale from 0 to 100. This will be explained in more detail in the "Actor" section further down below.
      Furthermore, SAM adds male genitals, lovingly called schlongs, that can be scaled and toggled on and off in-game, 5 different degrees of body hair, beast character support, werewolf support and 13 bodybuilder-inspired poses. Whew.
      As a caveat, all armor and clothes have to be refitted for all three body types in order to function as intended, which was, and still is, a large community effort. If you want to see more armor, clothing and other items for SAM, become active and support this little community!
      GETTING TO KNOW THE MCM MENU
      So, you have managed to get SAM up and running. Huzza! But wait a minute, where are the beefcakes, where are the bears? Everybody still looks more or less the same! That's not what we signed up for!
      Well, to get the most out of SAM, you have to get accustomed to and make use of the settings offered in its MCM menu. Let's take a look.

      The MCM menu is part of SkyUI, so if it's not in your game, check that SkyUI is installed correctly. If the MCM menu is there, but the SAM menu isn't, wait a few minutes and see if it pops up. If it doesn't, start a new game and see if it loads there. It is possible that SkyUI wouldn't load some MCM menus even though everything is set up correctly. That's a problem within SkyUI, not within SAM and it can happen to any mod with an MCM menu. Sorry.
      GENERAL SETTINGS

      Most of the options here alter the way SAM assigns values to NPCs.
      Enable Automatic Race Settings: If enabled, SAM will assign values to NPCs according to their race. The default values for all races are set to 0 / medium hair, so it is highly recommended to define your own race adjustments in the "Races" tab.
      Class morph offsets: If enabled, SAM will also morph NPCs according to their class: warriors are more muscular, mages are leaner, etc.
      Weight Cap: If enabled, the Samuel and Samson values cannot exceed the overall weight of the NPC. For example, if an NPC has the weight 37, the Samuel and Samson values can only add up to 37.  If disabled, this rule no longer applies. Note: The weight of an NPC is usually set by the game when the NPC spawns and cannot be changed directly by the player.
      Variaton Range: The higher the value, the more varied and extreme the randomly assigned body morphs become. At lower values, SAM will adhere more closely to the values set in the "Races" tab.
      Enable schlongs: If enabled, all male characters will have genitals. If a character is dressed, the schlong will usually be hidden by their clothes (duh). To see what they're packing, you will have to find a way to undress them (e.g. Sexlab or similar mods) or install skimpy armor and clothes, which are available on this website. Skimpy armor that was made for SOS is not supported because it needs to be refitted first.
      If disabled, schlongs will be replaced by black underwear. WARNING: every now and then, schlongs might still peek through some characters' clothes, especially if they just spawned. That's because schlongs are enabled by default and hiding them is step 2 for the game's engine, which may take a moment to happen (I think). As a work-around, if you absolutely do not want even just the tip of a single dingeling to be seen anywhere at any moment in your game, rename/delete the schlong meshes in the SAM core file in addition to disabling them here.
      If you activated schlongs but guards still wear undies, that's most likely because you've installed Vector's Optional Legacy Skimpy armors. In which case, those undies are in fact their armor. They are very effective.
      Absolutely necessary and in no way superfluous visual aid for the schlong toggle:

      (Note: Game does not actually display eggplants. There's a schlong under there.)
      Overrides: this button resets the values SAM has assigned to all characters up to that point. Meant for trouble-shooting primarily.
      Export/Import settings: all your settings can be saved and loaded via these buttons. By pressing the Export button, a file called "SAM.json" containing your current settings will be created in your data folder. Pressing "Import" will read that file and apply its settings to your save file. Very useful if you start new games often.
      SCALING

      In this menu, you can chose which characters SAM should affect and customise the scaling of different body parts to your liking.
      Body Options
      Most of these options are fairly self-explanatory. However, the schlong options won't be present if schlongs are disabled in the general tab.
      NPC body scaling and NPC Schlong scaling are toggled off by default to save system resources. Enabling them means that the engine will assign moprhs to all male characters that get loaded into the game. This can stress the engine considerably as NPCs are loaded and unloaded constantly in the background.
      The Scale multiplier affects all male NPCs. It is set to a believable value by default. Use responsibly. Or be an insufferable size queen, it's your game and nobody is judging you (openly).
      Proportion Settings
      Here, you can adjust the proportions of the Samson and Samuel morphs to your liking. If things get too wild, the Original Values buttons reset your inputs in this menu.
      ACTORS

      In this menu, you can assign Samuel and Samson values as well as schlong options to your character and currently loaded male NPCs around you.
      Actor: Choose which currently loaded male actor you want to alter. Default is your character.
      Overrides: Same button as the one under the general tab.
      Body Options
      These options are probably the ones you will use the most. Here, the values SAM applies to the character that you chose in the Actor field are shown and can be adjusted to your liking. The weight slider is only available for the player character. Schlong options are hidden if schlongs are disabled in the general tab.
      Weight: Vanilla weight slider. Make the character broader or slimmer.
      Height: Make characters bigger or smaller. Adjust in small steps as even a change by 1 unit already makes a noticeable difference.
      Samson / Samuel slider: Choose how much of each body morph should be injected. Max combined value is 100 by default. See table below for visual aid.
      Texture: Choose between different texture sets. Available options are based on the character's race.
      By default, there are 5 degrees of hairiness for human and elf races. Khajiits have two texture options (smooth and striped), Argonians only have one default option. Body hair is black by default, which cannot be altered. For coloured body hair, choose the smooth option and use Racemenu overlays (i.e. tattoos) as a work-around.
      Here is a table of different combos of Weight, Samson and Samuel values at default scaling settings.

      And here are the default hair textures (part of the default texture set in the download section of SAM after clicking the "Download this file" button):

      (Note: Khajiits and Argonians have their own texture sets not shown above. Body morph values used for this character are 100 weight, 40 Samson, 60 Samuel.)
      Schlong Options
      Note: To keep this guide SFW, there is no visual aid available for this section.
      Schlong Size: Alters the schlong's size, primarily its length.
      Schlong Taper: Makes the tip of the schlong narrower. 0= evenly wide, 100 = strongly tapered towards the tip. High values also shorten the schlong noticeably.
      Testicle Size: slider from -50 to +50, default is 0. Makes the testicles bigger or smaller.
      Cut: Toggle foreskin on and off.
       
      RACES

      This menu lets you define different base values for each race. If you want all your Orcs to be shaved bodybuilders with footlong schlongs and all Nords to be hairy uncut bears without having to adjust them all one by one, this is where you can make this happen. Settings made in this menu will only be applied if the "Enable Automatic Race Settings" option is toggled ON in the general tab.
      Note: Values entered here usually only affect NPCs that have never been loaded before by the game. NPCs you have encountered before will already have values assigned to them that persist within your save file.
      Most options work exactly like the options in the Actor tab. Options that behave differently are:
      Race: choose which race you want to alter.
      Texture Lock: Make all characters of the chosen race have that particular texture. If unticked, variations can occur based on the "Variation Range" setting in the general tab.
      Cut: In this tab, the cut option is a slider rather than a toggle on/off button. Sets the probability of characters of the chosen race being cut or uncut. 0= everyone is uncut, 100 = everyone is cut.
      Werewolf

      Options in this tab are fairly self-explanatory.
      IMPORTANT: Werewolf options can only be set when the character in question is currently in werewolf form. Vice versa, the values in the "Actors" tab can only be changed while the character is in its human form. Values from the "Actors" tab carry over for the character's werewolf form and adjustments made in this menu persist over transformations.
       
      Finally, let's talk about the features not accessible via MCM.
      SAM Poses and SOS console commands
      SAM contains 13 poses for your pleasure. FNIS is required to play them in-game. Important note: when running the FNIS tool, make sure to toggle the "Skeleton Arm Fix" option ON.
      To play the poses, open the console in-game and use one of the following commands. Note: console commands are not case-sensitive when entered into the console in-game. 
      player.SAE SAMPoseXX SAE SAMPoseXX The first version plays the pose for the player character, the second version plays the pose for the character selected in the console (left click on them while the console is open).
      Replace XX with a value from 01 to 13 to play the according pose.
      Alternatively, you can use mods such as Poser Hotkeys to access poses, be it from SAM or other poser mods.

       
      Also, some console commands carry over from SOS (Schlongs of Skyrim). These include:
      SAE SOSFlaccid //turn schlong flaccid SAE SOSFastErect //get erection quickly SAE SOSErect //get erection gradually SAE SOSBendXX //replace xx with value from -9 to 9 to adjust erection angle, default=0 Again, add player. before the command to target the player character. After entering these commands, the error message "The event was not processed by the graph" will be displayed; this is expected behaviour and can safely be ignored. The commands will be executed once you close the console.
       
      Thank you for reading the unofficial SAM User Guide.
      Thank you so much @Vector for making SAM and entertaining this forum, and thank you to all mods and active community members for making this a lively place.
      Thank you @Felio for providing some corrections and clarifications.
      Additions, corrections and suggestions are always welcome.
      Have fun with Skyrim and Shape Atlas for Men!
       
      Last note: Screenshots were taken by me. ENB preset is Rudy ENB (NLA version). Body textures are the default SAM HD textures. Beard is from Hirsute Beards.
