SAM High Poly Conversion 1.5

   (6 reviews)

6 Screenshots

About This File

This is a high poly conversion of SAM meshes.  The resulting meshes are smooth and contain around 4x the amount of vertices while still being usable for general gameplay.  It started out as something for my own personal use, but I decided to share it with everyone.  Compatible with SAM and SAM Light for both LE and SE.

High Poly Body Mesh

  • high poly body for both SAM and SAM Light variants
  • underwear was given high poly treatment
  • there are some minor sharp edges on certain poses due to weights
  • if you're on a low end system and worried about performance, stick with the default body mesh

High Poly Genital Mesh new

  • high poly genitals for both SAM and SAM Light
  • smoother edges are noticeable when zoomed in

High Poly Hand Mesh

  • high poly hands for playable human and beast races
  • new mesh is based on the vanilla HandMaleBig mesh
  • optional fingernail mesh to enhance details
  • hand mesh v2 requires manual texture editing for fingernail textures

High Poly Feet Mesh

  • symmetrical feet meshes (original mesh had a smaller right foot)
  • optional toenail mesh to enhance details even further
  • feet mesh v2 requires manual texture editing for toenail textures

High Poly Tail Mesh new

  • high poly tail meshes for Argonian and Khajiit races
  • vertex weights smoothed to look less blocky during movement

Refits

  • full vanilla refits made specifically for high poly SAM
  • minor clipping may occur during movement
  • currently does not include:  briarheart body mesh or USLEEP/USSEP changes

Fingernail/Toenail Mesh Texture

  • v1 mesh uses a separate texture for the fingernails/toenails.  Color won't change, but certain skin tones might make the nails look out of place.
  • v2 mesh requires the fingernail/toenail textures to be on the same texture as the hand/body.  This allows the use of the skin shader to change the color of the nails to match skin tone.  Use the provided texture resources to copy and paste the fingernails into the hand textures and the toenails into the body textures.

Installation

If using a mod manager, just follow the installer.

Manual Installation

  • 00 and 01 - high poly body + genital meshes, select between SAM or SAM Light (cut or uncut)
  • 02 - hand mesh, select between high poly hand with or without fingernail meshes
  • 03 - feet mesh, select between high poly feet with or without toenail meshes
  • 04 - high poly tail meshes for Argonian and Khajiit
  • 05 - refits, each subfolder covers a specific armor part (body, hand, feet), base folder covers all armor that does not include skin

That's a common server issue some users here face when trying to download large files.  There isn't much I can do about it.  I'd often have issues trying to even upload large files.

Could you maybe link it to an alternative download? google docs maybe?

If I use SAM outfits that have not been made specifically for this mod, will my game ctd?

No CTD or anything of that sort.  The body shapes are generally the same as the original SAM, but the body mesh itself just won't look consistent.

Me again, I found an issue in LE with the Barkeeper's clothes which resulted in a leg gap. It was caused by an extraneous amulet partition in the .nifs.

I got rid of it & repainted the calves partition, here are the files for anyone interested. Just drag and drop into Data and let it replace the old .nifs (or use NMM). Feel free to use them in the next update of your wonderful mod KouLeifoh. 😀

Hi!

Are there any tutorials on how to manually edit the toe nail and finger nail textures for v2?

Also, with the genital hot fix, if Im using MO2 and SAM Light LE. Do I just activate it after SAM High Poly Light LE

 

I really appreciate all your hard work

Grab the toenail/fingernail texture resources in the download, edit them however you want, and then paste them into your current body/hand textures.

The genital hotfix isn't needed for SAM Light.

Ok random question.  Does the high poly body for SAM Full work for beast races?  I'm asking because I don't see argonian and khajit hands, feet, genitals and 1st person hands.
