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. 😁

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.

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.

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:

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 ..

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.

 

For more examples check out my Insta account @illuvien.eviarson #illuvien (850+ mods, 450+ plugins)

works okayish. wish it was just a standalone replacer, because I don't have the skill to make it into one. One big problem is that there are flesh colored chunks missing out of eyebrows on elves, which sucks, because elves are all I play. Help please.

      This was my first upload ever a few days ago... ("This is my first upload ever, English is not my primary or native language, so please be patient and if you need to ask something, try to be concise and, please do not use slang on messages. Thanks!
      This is a refit of some vanilla heavy armors, with a esp as to be used as standalone. It will need to be downloaded as requirements: Complete Crafting Overhaul Remastered https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/28608?tab=files, and it's requirements (SKSE, USSEP, and WACCF) , aMidianBorn - Content Addon SSE https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/35390.
      In the near future I will add more refits to the stand alone file, and a different one as replacer").
      So, I'm done with this mod for now. Feel free to report any issue you find, I ask you to be sufficiently explanatory. I will not be upgrading the mod any time soon (real life stuff), so if you find anything that is not working as intended, please be patient. In the meantime, I hope you like my work. Have fun and be safe! 🙂

      English isn't my native language, so please excuse any mistakes.
      I apologize for the translation.
      All errors are fixed.
      Posted a new version of the mod for those players who did not download the mod and a new version of the ESP (ENG&RU) files for those who downloaded in the period from 12.10 to 14.10.

      My mod adds a follower named Ciel Greenstone to Skyrim. He is a warrior-mage. He has a house in Riverwood. The mod consists of two files. Mod in English (bsa&esp) and a separate ESP for the Russian language.
      Сiel Greenstone is a companion-mag with a small "dowry"- house in Riverwood.
      Ciel developed a powerful -a companion that does not need to be distracted during the game. He will heal himself, cover both you and himself, and as your hero or heroine develops, he will give a light to any of your enemies.
      At the start, he has level 65, but correctly holds himself (in battle, he uses spells 1, 2, 8).
      Yes, The he was created for playing with Requiem, legendary level, and/or playing with all sorts of additions and complications of the existence of a multi-stage Dovahkin.
      My "game cocktail" of Requiem, Michael's monsters and zombies his went well.

      So, what it can please you:
      - spells:
      1.Fireball - right hand
      2.Fireball - left hand
      3.Firestorm
      4.Stone flesh
      5.fast treatment
      6.The healing of wounds
      7.Substantial magic resistance (ability to)
      8.The revival of zombies
      9.restore health in battle
      10.Fireball enhanced (fire and stones) - available only at high levels of your hero
      11.treatment of neighbors
      12.Unsealed door
      13.Level 5 magic replenishment
      14.Candlelight
      - dowry:
      1. Оutfit .
      2. Enchanted armor.
      3. Weapon - the "Blazing" sword.
      4. House in the city))).
      In first battle (while your hero is "still small") he uses spells 1, 2, 8.
      Let's take a closer look.
      1. The outfit. Not enchanted. This is a substitute for the farmer's clothing. It will ONLY affect Ciel. All the other farmers in Skyrim are still sporting closed pants. Since the outfit has no enchantment, it can be easily replaced with any other armor or clothing.
      2. armor based on Regal Huntsman Armor v2-0 from DreamBurrow and a Hiking backpack from the Rogue Blade Armor mod from a Fan. I added a fit to Ciel's body, an enchantment to each item, and a hair to the hood. The armor is in the chest of Ciel's house. Along with a second set of Hiking backpack, DiBella's amulet, and a spare sword for you.
      3. The Sword "Blazing". Enchanted katana with serious damage. A gift for you - a second sword. It's in Ciel's trunk. (Repeat, sorry).
      Ciel won't change weapons if you take the sword from him. He'll just switch to magic.
      4. 10,000 gold in Ciel's inventory. He's not a greedy guy and will be happy to share it with you.
      5. Home. Separate). In Riverwood))).
      Now seriously.
      The house will allow you to catch your breath a little.

      Requirements:
      0. Legendary edition with all additions.
      1. HDT Physics Extensions - there is a place to be physics of intimate places.
      2. XP32 Maximum Skeleton Extended.
      Features:
      - if you find that the physiology behaves strangely when using SL - omit (rewrite) the HDT Physics Extensions MOD IS below the Ciel Greenstone mod.
      - the ivy, Cabinet and hanging shelf use vanilla textures and will look as laid out in your game.
      Recommendations: Ciel responds well to any companion management mod. If you are interested in changing the distance between your/your the main character and Ciel, use the Followers As Companions mod.
      Installation:Standard.
      Removal:
      1. Disable the mod in the launcher.2. Remove the ESP and BSA mod from the date.
      A little "chatter":
      Ciel has a complex personality. The combination of his relationship with Dovakin and mood will give a cocktail of grumbling, approval, and secret glances towards your/your main character.
      I think it's interesting.
