1,727 downloadsCustom skin textures I created for SAM Light for personal use. It's reached a point where I feel it's ready for everyone else to use. These textures are for human races only. Each texture set is custom made and meant to be used together. Hand and feet textures include fingernails/toenails and are meant to be used with hand/feet meshes from SAM High Poly Conversion. Face textures include high quality ears and no problematic seams commonly found in the back of the head. Requirements SAM Light Diffuse Maps created from various photo references slightly saturated and mainly tailored for Nords skin tone might be off for non-Nord races includes body hair options optional tanline body available in 2k (uncompressed) Normal Maps (_msn) baked from high poly models and blended with skin pores for extra details face maps use vanilla maps as base and blended to remove neck seams available in 4k and 2k (uncompressed) Specular Maps (_s) designed specifically to highlight fine skin pores while not being overly glossy available in 4k and 2k (compresed and uncompressed variants) Subsurface Maps (_sk) effect is subtle in Oldrim but much more noticeable in SE created from diffuse maps available in 1k (compressed and uncompressed variants) Face Complexion Maps custom-made complexion maps rough maps are freckles and age maps are sharper and appear younger than vanilla certain NPC's may look different due to age complexion available in 1k uncompressed (RGB 64:64:64) Installation If using a mod manager, just follow the installer. The quality 4k options are meant for screenarchery, but they're usable for general gameplay if you have a capable system. Manual Installation 00 Diffuse textures in _bodyBase, _hands, _head folders are required choose one body texture from _bodyDefault (normal body) or _bodyTan (tanline body) folders 01 Normal textures in _hands and _head folders are required. choose between 2k body (_body2k) or 4k body (_body4k) optionally install texture in _headCustom folder for custom head texture 02 Specular Quality: pick one body texture from _body2k or _body4k folder, then install all textures in _quality2k folder Performance: install all textures in the _performance2k folder 03 Subsurface Quality: install all textures in the _quality1k folder Performance: install all textures in the _performance1k folder 04 Face Detail optional for custom face complexion maps What about SAM (full)? Due to the vast amount of normal maps used, I decided to only support SAM Light since it uses only one set of normal maps. The other maps can be used for SAM, but some editing is needed if you want the genital textures. Please do not modify and share without my permission.

5,345 downloadsThis is a RaceMenu plugin that adds SAM morphs without using any of SAM's scripts. It's mainly intended to add SAM morphing features to SE, but a version for Oldrim is also provided. Using armor refits for SAM is highly recommended. For SE users, the refits must be converted to SE format using NIF Optimizer. RaceMenu SE 0.2.4+ requires .tri morphs to be using the newer format exported by Outfit Studio. Main Features Body Morphs for different body types Texture selection for custom textures Body hair overlays for extra body hair control BodyGen Morphs for diverse body types on all male NPC's based on class (optional) Body Morphs Samson/Samuel morphs with a toggle for skeleton scaling Genital morphs based on SAM genital bones scaling formula Foreskin morph to toggle foreskin Individual bone scaling used in Samson/Samuel morphs for finer tuning Genital skeleton scaling for compatiblity with genital accessories Texture Selection (SAM Light only, textures not included) Swap to different diffuse, normal, and specular maps for the body, hands, and feet* Requires refits with body parts correctly named for SAM (SAMBody, SAMHands, SAMFeet, SAMGenitals, SAMForeskin) Textures follow the naming convention BaseName_xx.dds (diffuse), BaseName_xx_msn.dds (normal), BaseName_xx_s.dds (specular) where xx ranges from 01 to 10 For example, base texture malebody_1.dds would be named malebody_01.dds, malebody_02.dds, malebody_03.dds, etc. Feet textures have the BaseName of MaleFeet (default races), ArgonianMaleFeet (Argonian), and FeetMale (Khajiit) *feet uses body texture by default Usage Three custom spells are automatically added under Powers. SAM Morphs (Self)* Opens a minimal version of RaceMenu on the player character SAM Morphs (Target)* Opens a minimal version of RaceMenu on the target character SAM Textures Config Configures setting for feet texture mode and resets texture overrides *requires UIExtensions Requirements SKSE / SKSE64 RaceMenu (Oldrim, SE) SAM Light* UIExtensions** (Oldrim, SE) *not required, but SAM assets are required in some type of setup (like SOS). SAM scripts/.esp/.dll are not used. **only required for editing morphs on NPC's Manual Installation 00 Textures for overlays 01 Base mod for either Oldrim or SE 02 BodyGen morphs (1 for basic setup, 2 for overrides from other mods) (optional) 03 Genital Morphs if not using SAM Light (optional) Notes Foreskin morph requires SAM Light "un-cut" option during installation. BodyGen for RaceMenu SE can make the game unstable based on individual setups. BodyGen morphs are saved in the SKSE co-save alongside the game save. NetImmerse Override Cleaner can be used to remove the morph data in Oldrim saves. I'm not aware of any equivalent tool for SE. Body hair overlay only applies to the main body mesh, not the genitals. This is due to how the overlay system was designed. RaceMenu for NPC's will show them in a T-pose during slider changes. This is intentional and required when updating skeleton scaling since the game is paused. NPC will resume animations once the menu is closed. Genital morphs don't use genital skeleton scaling and are intended for BodyGen randomization. If used alongside the full SAM, the morphs and scaling are not synchronized and will add on top of each other.

5,700 downloadsThis is a modified version of SAM that removes dependencies on scripts and .esp to allow the genitals to show when fully nude by resizing and placing the genital texture on the body texture layout. As a result, body morphs are not supported. It's a basic body replacer along the same lines as Better Males and SOS Light. Compatible with classic Skyrim and Special Edition. This mod is not an official release of SAM. Therefore, if you encounter any issues with it, please do not contact Vector about them. Difference between full SAM Lightweight due to no scripts or .esp used No body morphs* No dynamic body type and genital adjustments No dynamic body texture options Revealing armor with "SAMRevealing" node not supported Werewolf and Vampire Lord not supported *morph functionality can be added with SAM Morphs for RaceMenu Installation If using a mod manager, just follow the installer. Manual installation 00 and 01 are required for core functionality. 02 Genital Option - Select between Cut, Uncut, or Underwear (non-nude) version 03 Human Body Texture - Select one body texture for human races 04 Khajiit Body Texture - Select one body texture for Khajiit race Custom Textures If you'd like to use your own body textures, use the layout template to resize and align the genital correctly. Base texture 2k, resize genital texture to 256x256 Base texture 4k, resize genital texture to 512x512 Align genital texture in the green box, create selection mask with the green color, and delete the selection. Due to genital texture resizing, minor texture seams may be visible. Regarding Refits Armor refits are not required for basic functionality. They're only needed if you use SAM Morphs for RaceMenu and want the morph features. Credit goes to Vector for the creation of Shape Atlas for Men.
1 pointSo I decided to write this Quick tutorial on how to make a Custom race SAM compatiable. Note that this is only for the schlong and the body morphs to hopefully have full functionality. Hopefully this works out, in all honesty whenever I did this I just tested my way through and got a result in the end. How To Make a Custom race Sam Compatible.docx
