I have finally finished all my Male NPC High Poly Head Overhauls. There are 11 installments, consisting of around 400 male NPCs all using High Poly Head. This baby is HUGE. I have completed all the guilds, holds, cities, towns, villages, mines, inns, Sovngarde, etc. Basically, almost all men with a name. There are no bandits, guards, Forsworn, etc. Basically, any generic male.
There are four main files to choose from, all of which are FOMODs. Choose from Loose Files in 4K or 1K (for those with lesser computers - you can't tell the difference that much), or BSA version in 4K or 1K (no loose files for space saving).
PLEASE CHOOSE ONLY ONE FILE
I created these men using Tempered Skins, so they will look best with this skin, but they look pretty good with SAM Light and SAM Light Texture Add-On too.
See Images to get an idea of what you're getting. There are too many NPCs to post every picture.
Some Important Things to Note:
There are NO skin textures attached to this mod. That means you will have to suffer atrocious vanilla skin textures if you download. The good news is, it will accept any skin mod you wish to use. Please be aware that your NPCs will look a bit different than mine using different skin textures. I also use Silent Horizons ENB and Cathedral Weathers, so your images may look different from mine.
I am using High Poly Head Version 4 and it requires Expressive Facegen Morphs and Expressive Facial Animation Male. Animations are not baked into the mod. With that said, some have used this mod without them with no problems. If you find beard clipping or weird eyes, install these mods. If not, you should be fine.
Please do not ask me to change appearances or remove tattoos, change hair, or ask me to remove NPCs. I created them the way I wanted them and they stay as is.
The BSA versions do NOT work with other NPC overhauls. If you use multiple male NPC overhauls, please put this one at the bottom of your load order and overwrite. If you do use other NPCs, the assets for them must be in the same order as the .esps. NPC overhauls are safe to put at the bottom of your load order and is recommended you do so.
If you use mods to change male NPC body shape/size, you could possibly end up with neck seams and floating heads. It's been recently reported they work with HIMBO.
Not all NPCs are young. I have tried to retain the age of most of them. No Elderly were reworked and the male orcs from the Orc holds were left off due to complications.
Cicero was not overhauled (bummed). Overhauls for him have to be created in LE then converted. I don't have LE.
Expressive Facegen Morphs (soft requirement)
Expressive Facial Animation Male (soft requirement)
