  1. This (unfinished) armor port has been sitting in the backburner since 2017 πŸ™ƒ
  2. That's my Alexios character preset. The hair mesh was ported from ACO for personal use and the HPH head mesh was sculpted in 3DS Max to match Alexios' actual head mesh from the game. I don't remember what I was working on before life happened, but the skin textures are more than halfway done. I remade them all in 4k as a base and completely redid the skin pores.
  3. It's been awhile. The heatwave makes it difficult to do anything productive. πŸ™ƒ
  4. Testing custom eye meshes with tinted eyelashes to match hair color while also fixing the annoying transparent eyes bug with ENB under certain lighting.
  5. @HiroHaro ESL flagged mods are loaded differently from other mods in xEdit. The code I used in my script to detect load order will fail.
  6. @David Richard Correct. The same applies to all mods that rely on RaceMenu. @Billkwando It seems you're adamant on doing everything except the one thing I suggested: update the NPC records. As you have stated, that was created for the low poly head. It's telling the game that you're using the low poly head/brow meshes and, more importantly, the low poly head/brow morphs. The "beam" you keep seeing is the game trying to use the low poly head/brow morphs with my high poly head/brow meshes. They're not compatible.
  7. @HiroHaro The ESL flag is not supported. @dbrown39 @David Richard It's up to Expired to update RaceMenu (specifically its skee.dll plugin). While the source code for it is available on github, I don't know if it's updated nor do I want to touch it. @Billkwando When modifying an NPC's appearance, both the FaceGen data (.nif) and the NPC head part records (.esp) must match. Otherwise, there will be the infamous black face issue (invalid facetint) or mesh distortion (invalid morphs). It looks like you changed the FaceGen but didn't update the NPC records.
  8. SKSE is one thing, but RaceMenu would also need an update.
  9. @David Richard It looks like you're using a custom head morph/sculpt in your preset that isn't supported by my high poly head mod. @JUKIT My load order detection code doesn't support ESL flags. Also, never run the script on masters. The intent is to run it on a patch created by the user (copy NPC records as Overrides into a new .esp). @Billkwando Using the CK method won't work on custom NPCs that use a sculpted head mesh. The CK will only generate FaceGen based on head morphs. You'll have to manually sculpt it using Outfit Studio, Blender, or 3DS Max. @Neisa It's literally in the description of this mod.
  10. @KRou705 The genital/underwear option you pick during installation will be the default used in-game. @Asterios Aside from one texture option (default hybrid genital hair + smooth body), the rest are from the original SAM.
  11. I used the vanilla files as a base. It looks like a partition issue which can be easily fixed in 3DS Max. Before I went on hiatus, I finished adding support for Ethereal Elven Overhaul (not fully tested) and started converting the rest of the vanilla beards (1bit and unused) to high poly for consistency. It'll be awhile before the next update is ready.
  12. Due to the way I start the cloak effect for managing texture swapping, you need to use the SAM Morphs power to change textures instead of the full RaceMenu. Once that cloak effect is active, you can safely change player textures in the full RaceMenu. Keep in mind that if no texture slider is used for the player/NPC, the cloak effect will be removed for performance reasons. I'll change the logic and expand its functionality in a future update.
  13. I don't use a mod manager, but if replacing the textures installed in MO2 doesn't work, you may have to manually install them in the Skyrim folder.
  14. @burundio Those are added by the normal map texture (specifically for Breton race). There isn't much you can do other than manually editing the texture or using a different one entirely. Since you're using my SAM Light texture add-on, the next update will include different levels of vanilla normal map details for each race.
  15. I don't mind the overall head shape that much, but what bothers me the most is the eye shape. They look so alien compared to other medival-fantasy games. If you just want to make some minor edits, Outfit Studio has come a long way and can be used to quickly edit head .tri files. The eyes/mouth meshes do not have racial morphs. As a proof of concept, I merged the racial morphs for elves/nords (50% each) for each elven race while keeping the slim elven base head and ears (all done in 3DS Max). This is the resulting Dark Elf with some minor adjustments. The normal map is a blend of a smooth map with the vanilla map. On a side note, I managed to create functional 3D eyelashes while trying to decouple the eyelash hair cards from the eye mesh. They're not really practical for gameplay since they have nearly the same amount of vertices as the high poly head mesh. πŸ™ƒ
  16. @Raydonn I've already mentioned this elswhere, but there's no actual Male tag in the game. The Female tag exists and is used specifically for female NPCs. Males are determined by the inverse of the Female tag. This means that things like animals and creatures are considered to be Male. Using the Male keyword for BodyGen will also apply the morphs to every animal/creature. This can be easily checked in-game. One can argue that it's harmless since there is likely no associated morph for affected animals/creatures (all morph data are still saved in the skse co-save), but it's not a good programming/modding practice to modify things outside the scope of a mod. The reason I opted for manually defining morphs for each individual NPC was to follow the original SAM mod which used defined Samson/Samuel values based on class archetypes (warrior, mage, thief, etc). I created a custom xEdit script to auto generate the BodyGen entries for every male NPC in the game (over 2k). Don't use the Enable Scaling morph in BodyGen. It does nothing on its own. I use morphs to store certain values for each NPC to avoid bloating the main game save. Defining a range for a random morph value is valid, but the main reason I used rigid values was to keep them looking nice and clean when viewed in RaceMenu. There will be lots of numbers beyond 2 significant bits otherwise.
  17. They're similar to Shout abilities. Press the Shout key to use them.
  18. Testing Ethereal Elven Overhaul support for my high poly head mod. Despite numerous requests, I'm still not quite sold on it compared to EFM.
  19. HDT-BBB for SAM is not compatible with SavrenX SoSAM Light without some editing.
  20. It simply uses NiOverride to set the morph value on slider change and updates the target character to show the change. Samson/Samuel morphs use a 0-100 range to match the orignal SAM mod while the actual morph value is internally divided by 100. The texture sliders also use morph values to avoid bloating the main game save file (morphs are saved in the skse co-save and can be safely cleared). The source file isn't available since it's messy and I didn't want people stealing code. The code is long overdue for restructuring whenever I get around to updating it again.
  21. I've been seeing a lot of variants on Eivor lately from different folks and decided to give it a try. The high poly head mesh was reshaped in 3DS Max using Eivor's actual head mesh from ACV as reference.
  22. @SaiyanBroly Depending on how detailed the normal map is for the head, ENB SSAO and sharpening may make the shadows/wrinkles more noticeable. @TheOldManJock I plan to add support for it, but there's currently no ETA. It'll only affect the player and newly generated FaceGen for NPCs.
  23. @tate56 It needs to be said, but make sure you're running the script on your patch, not the CC content. It's the same method as patching vanilla NPCs. You create an override patch of those NPCs and then run the script on that patch, not Skyrim.esm. If it's the CC content itself that is causing load order issues, then temporarily remove the ESL flag from it. @DreamZoned I'm glad you were able to fix it before I even got around to it.
  24. @Lyzder During installation, pick either cut or uncut versions for SAM Light. The original SAM requires the underwear option. @LovinInDeep Make sure the hands (and morphs) are not being replaced by another mod. The morphs will fail if they don't match the mesh they're intended for. Also don't use LE meshes in SE since morphs do not work on LE meshes. @Hungustus I already posted a temporary Google Drive mirror here. @Nachtigall Miseme Load it after SAM Core since it'll replace the assets. It doesn't matter for XPMS since no skeleton is included.
