Vitruvia - (Crude) SAM Light Adaptation (LE/ SE) 1.0.0

   (0 reviews)

7 Screenshots

About This File

NB: I originally prepared this package for texture swapping function of SAM Morphs for Racemenu. So, the face (racial) normal maps are not included in this package itself. If you need Vitruvia's face normal map, please download (and endorse) the original package from Nexus.

 

Vitruvia - Skin texture overhaul for males by Mandragorasprouts (for LE/ for SE) has several point to note, though it's compatible neither with SAM nor with SAM Light.

  • 4K detailed face/ body diffuse (skin) texture (Normal maps are 2K, though)
  • One of the least chiselled muscles among many male mods
  • SoS support and AFAIK the most well-done way of hiding the seam between the body and the genital NiTriShape part in the Crotch Area. 
  • Almost complete (rough2 is missing) set of new complexion of male face.
  • Scarred skin as well as normal maps.
  • Its skin texture is not 100% (complete seam-free) compatible with other-vanilla like skins texures, but very versatile and can be used togeter with other vanilla-friendly skin re-textures like Skysight Skins,  at least in my very bad eyes (see also one of SSs posted).

 

In course of updating my other (crude) SAM Light adaptation package, Skysight Skins for SAM Light (w/ elder race normal), I found that the author was no longer active in mod making but she/he gave a permission to use his files as assets as long as with due credit. So, With Vitruvia I updated SAM light adaptation of Skysight Skins first. Then, I also prepared this package in order to use together with Skysight Skins for SAM Light ('s face texture). 

 

What is included in this package: 

  • Skin (Diffuse Maps): Face (4K DXT1 compressed), Body (4K DXT1 compressed: adapted from hairy version, made compatible with SAM High Poly Conversion's Toenails), Hands (1K DXT1 compressed, made compatible with SAM High Poly Conversion's Fingernails)
  • Normal Maps: Body (2K uncompressed for LE; BC7 compressed for SE: in fact, combining mainly Vitruvia original in the upper and SAM Light Texture Add-on in the lower body), Hands (2K uncompressed for LE; BC7 compressed for SE). Both are compatible with SAM High Poly Conversion. Face normal is not included (even for the Nords). 
  • Specular Maps: Same as Skysight Skins for SAM (2K/ 1K DXT1 compressed: Wet Skins based on CMO: Complete Male Overhaul by Mok Chaoticran
  • Subsurface Maps: due to my laziness, only black dots one (for LE non-ENB user) is included. If you don't like it, just delete them.
  • Face Complexions: a little tweaked from original. 1K Uncompressed.
  • Bonus: Scarred Body Skin/ Normal Maps. I include them in 'malebody_01.dds/ malebody_01_msn.dds'. You can assign these scarred textures to your PC's body from SAM textures menu with SAM Morphs for Racemenu. 

 

All the credits & endorsement should be given to the original authors (please also visit their original download site and endorse the original), not me.

Also sorry for my shitty SSs and clumsy English.

Thank you for your comment, but I'm not a texture artist myself (just can convert the original into SAM light's UV Map), what I wiil be able to tweak further is unfortunately fairly limited.

  • no chest hair: almost certainly possible (since the original author also provides hairless one) within a week.
  • 3d public hair / more hairs on the pudendum: ? This mod does not have  3d mesh for public hair. Which do you wish for pubes (more or less)? Or what do you mean the word 'pudendum' (possibly not the pubes?) 
  • I have some body hair photoshop files for male body, but I afraid that they don't much fine body hair of the original of this mod and I cannot draw the body hair by myself. This is the most conspicuous problem.

I saw you use Japanese 2-byte punctuation in the comment post, so if you prefer Japanese to English, just PM to me in Japanese from the [message] icon on the upper-right corner.

It's very kind of you,Thank you.

Apologize for my poor English and make you wonder. I mean:pubes(like the attached picture,but I hope it's darker, thicker and wider),no chest hairs but more hairs on belly、arm、calf .

I'm sorry to have caused you some troubles.

I can't speak Japanese.

Absolutely no problem, please don't worry.

I'm not sure, however, how much body hair on the belly you want to have (without reaching to the chest), and I also forgot to ask about the backside.

Here I attach very crude test version: SAM Light Textures test for 76e.7z

you can check skin diffuse (both body and hands) 02 and matching normal map number 02 from SAM Morphs for Racemenu.

I am very appreciate your trying.If it's too much trouble, just convert the original author's hairless one.thank you

I find Tempered Skins for Males(https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/7902?tab=files)and Fried's Male Skin Textures(https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/23854?tab=files),it is real and natural.

Tempered Skins for Males has a Version for SOS Light,  Can I use its maps on sam light se?

Thank you very much for your information.

Hereby I attach hairless version of Vitruvia (malebody_03.dds) and scarred hairless one (malebody_04.dds).

Vitruvia SAM Light Hairless test for 76e v2.7z

 

As far as I remember, I suppose these two have little to none problem. 

 

Actually I also tried to convert Fried's Male Skin Textures for SAM Light before the latest update of Skysight Skins Sam Light as well as Vitruvia, but this conversion may have several problems, such as: 

  • possible seams in the side just upper the waist (especially while squatting down
  • I changed the color tones of the original to more vanilla and skysight-like, but this change may not be fine.
  • The skin tones as well as colors between Fried and Vitruvia (that I used to 'fill the missing part' in vanilla body replacer of Fried) are so different that it was difficult to harmonize with. 

I included this test version of Fried-color-tweaked plus Vitruvia for SAM Light as malebody_05.dds (body skin) and malehands_03.dds (hand skin) in the package above.

Credit should be given to: Fried's Male Skin Textures - 4k Male Skin Textures and Complexions

 

>Tempered Skins for Males has a Version for SOS Light,  Can I use its maps on sam light se?

I in fact know very little about the texture editing in a real sense. What I did and only can do is just like a jigsaw-puzzle to combine the texture for SAM Light, and it is not so easy to write a guidance for me, neither native in English nor proficient in graphic tools like Photoshop or gimp.

  • Have you heard about UV MAP of mesh? Or have you ever open any male body texture file with Photoshop or GIMP?
  • The UV MAP of SAM/ SAM Light (the difference of UV MAP between these two are slight and easy to convert each other, though the former have more diverse variants of the body textures) are actually much closer to that of vanilla male body than SoS or Better Males. On the other hand, SoS - Light has the most distant UVMap of the body mesh from SAM/ SAM Light. So, without some advanced skill of mesh/texture editing (that I don't have), it would be a bit difficult to convert Tempered Skins for Males to SAM Light. 
  • To combine/ assemble various body texture in accordance with SAM Light's UV Map (a kind of developing plan) and to adjust colors and tones of various 'parts' of skins are in principle what to do for converting the male body textures into SAM Light. Really sorry if these sounds like all Greek to you.

      Release Note for v 2.0.0+: Now this package is stand-alone All-in-One replacer for whole set of SAM - Light Textures (Skin = Diffuse Maps, Normal Maps, Specular Maps, Subsurface Maps for Head, Body, and Hands. Racial Face Normal Maps are also provided). 
      This all-in-package is also compatible with the optional finger- and toe- nails of SAM High Poly Conversion without any manual tweak.
       
      This was originally just my very quick and dirty edit of converting Fadingsignal's famous male body retexture mod, Skysight skin, to Kouleifoh's SAM Light, intended to use together with his new wonderful mod, SAM Morphs for Racemenu.  
      Then, I found out that the original author of Skysight skin, Fadingsignal, just changed his permission policy so that we can publish the modified version of his files without his explicit/ direct correspondence for individual matter (just with the credit and link), so I decided to upload this small 'mashed-up' package here (in accordance of SAM EULA) just in case anyone will be interested in. 
       
      While editing his original skin diffuse (making up for the blacked-out underwear part) was too difficult for me without touching technical/ DMCA problem,  I could convert the original body normal maps (muscles/ veins) in accordance with new SAM Light UV map, with help of some similar normal maps from other body textures. 
      I also include the matching wet skin specular (based on now hidden CMO resource (w open permission)) and edited subsurface for all the body part (head/ body/ hand) as well as original Skysight skin's hand normal map. 
      As an appendix, new body normal map for elder male is also incorporated into the package. 
       
      I hope this package works both for Skyrim LE and SE, but I haven't tested it with SE by myself.
