High Poly Head 1.2

   (16 reviews)

10 Screenshots

About This File

High poly heads for all playable vanilla races based on the vanilla head meshes (male and female).  A simple name for a not-so-simple mod.  Available for both LE and SE.

Features

  • smooth high poly male and female heads
  • complementary high poly brows, beards, and scars to fit new head shape
  • includes morphs for RaceMenu's extended sliders
  • compatible with vanilla-based head textures
  • compatible with existing presets for the vanilla male/female head meshes (excluding sculpt data)
  • optional support for Expressive Facial Animation

Requirements

  • RaceMenu (LE, SE)
  • Expressive Facial Animation Male Edition (LE, SE) [optional]
  • Expressive Facial Animation Female Edition (LE, SE) [optional]

Manual Installation

  • 00 - Base mod (required)
  • 01 - Loose files needed for FaceGen creation in the Creation Kit (optional)
  • 02 - adds Expressive Facial Animation Male edition (optional)
  • 03 - adds Expressive Facial Animation Female edition (optional)
  • 04 - remove sunken vampire face morphs (optional)
  • 05 - symmetrical eye sockets (female) (optional)
  • 06 - vampire head fix (optional)

Usage

  • For the player character, use the Face Part slider in RaceMenu to switch to the high poly head.  If the head turns dark, change the player weight to force the skin shader to update.  Don't forget to also change the vanilla brows/beard/scars to the included high poly versions.
  • For NPC/follower mods, add this mod as a master, swap the vanilla head parts with the high poly version, then generate new FaceGen data (Ctrl + F4) in the Creation Kit.

Known Issues

  • minor clipping with certain vanilla hair meshes
  • scars appear darker than vanilla in SE
  • changing to vampire race will reset the high poly head back to vanilla

What's New in Version 1.2   See changelog

Released

  • added high poly Khajiit head meshes (male and female)
  • added high poly Argonian head meshes (male and female)
  • added custom Head Shape preset slider (in the Head tab) for Argonian male
    • Head Shape preset 1 is based on Brutish Argonian Male
    • added vanilla male Argonian hair to fit this head shape
  • added optional vampire head fix to prevent high poly head from reverting back to vanilla when changing to a vampire race
  • made a minor adjustment to the male head High Elf race morph

Note: Skin shader values for high poly head meshes were copied from body meshes for consistency.  The argonian female high poly head is noticeably more shiny than the vanilla head mesh.

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 ..

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 ..

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:

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. 😁

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.
