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! :)

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.

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. 😁

Truly awesome work! 

I thought I made pretty decent presets before, but OMG! This takes them to another level. Thanks so much for your hard work creating this for us, really appreciate it! 

I also found a helpful Youtube video showing you how to convert your existing presets that originally used the vanilla head mesh, over to use the high poly version instead. So credit to them for helping me move over some of my older presets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sL9_MZWxbC4

This is the first preset made from scratch that I have created using your amazing mod:

How to Add High Poly Heads to All NPCs in Skyrim

 

Youtube video I made, shows you how to use the x-edit scripts to add KL's high poly heads to all the NPCs in your game. I saw a couple people asking about it.

 

Obligatory,  I like the mod. 👌👌👌👌

 

The new hair update is excellent. That stuff is a PITA, so massive kudos.

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 ..

I LOVE this! I've literally used presets for years when creating my characters because trying to make them not look like garbage myself was just stressful and I just can't sculpt. Now I can finally actually make faces myself without the dread spiky chin. I know that in the description there's quick instructions on giving followers high-poly heads, but would anyone mind going more in depth? I'd love to give followers *cough* Vilja *cough* high-poly heads so they blend in with my character better. Thank you again, this mod has actually revived my love for the game.

this is the best mesh replacer out there...better than citrus, and now with symmetrical eyes it's practically complete. everyone should have this one in their load order. i can confirm it works with fairskin.

Very nice, high compatability to a lot of other facial overhaul related mods without destroying your existing save game face.

CoTR i.e. is incompatible to almost all existing mods adding make up, freckles, eye mods and eyebrows etc.

      Been a long time comin' huh?
      An equippable SAM body with an HDT enabled vagina.
      The body mesh is based on the High Poly SAM Body by @KouLeifoh, vagina from UUNP Special, mesh expertise by @Ulfberth.
      Works with both regular SAM and SAM Light (my personal pick).
      Obtain item through console or AddItemMenu.
      Requirements:
      SAM or SAM Light + HDT BBB (highly recommend the High Poly edition to eliminate seams)
      HDT Physics Extension (LE)/HDT Skinned Mesh Physics (SE)
      UUNP Special Physics XMLs from here (for LE only)
      XPMSE/XPMSSE
      This mod overrides the male skeleton nif with an edited version of XPMSE that adds vagina bones (I will try to keep it updated to the latest version).
      On LE it overrides the male hands meshes as well, to account for collision (hand mesh from High Poly SAM).
      It is not affected by SAM's body hair system as the mesh uses its own separate texture paths.
      Enjoy!

      View File Kreis' Armors of Oblivion #3 - Magician
      Preferring to use their extensive knowledge of all things magical, they wield a might more powerful than the sharpest blade.
      Most mages claim to study magic for its intellectual rewards, but they also often profit from its practical applications. Varying widely in temperament and motivation, mages share but one thing in common - an avid love of spellcasting.

      Description : 
      A set of craft-able clothing tailored to Men and Mer of Tamriel who pursues the path of the arcane arts. Comprises of comfortable layers of cotton and leather straps that accentuates their mysterious magical allure. 
      All pieces are of clothing to ensure your Mage Armor and other unarmored-related perk activates efficiently. They are consist of :
      Raiment [Slot 56] Boots Sleeves, or hand-armor/gloves Hat, offered in two size, small and large to avoid clipping issues.  Body "Armor", offered in cropped pants, thong, and cuisse (revealing). Only one can be worn at a time.  
      Since they are clothing, none of the pieces have armor rating. 
      As usual, they are HDT enabled. 
      Installation : 
      Install normally with your preferred mod manager. I personally use MO2.
      Permission : 
      If anyone wanted to convert, derive, modify; all I ask is that you share it with other people here also for everyone's benefit. 
      Footnotes : 
      If you like my works, feel free to subscribe to my Patreon and Ko-Fi. 
      Additionally, the Bodyslide files for this armor is available for download for my Patrons.
