[Guide] Refitting for SAM - Shape Atlas for Men

Recommended Posts

The sharpness is inevitable with these kind of  low-poly meshes. The only way to minimize this is to avoid using the inflate tool as much as possible. Delete the vertices of the body which is being covered by the clothing, so that you wont need to inflate the clothing so much over the body. And maybe consider scaling the size of the clothing up too, to give a starting point with less clipping.

Second issue again, its inevitable. In outfit studio the body is fixed in 1 position and nothing is moving. but in game the character is moving around and they're in different positions all the time, even when idle. Because of that sometimes you wont see clipping in OS but will see it in game.. it just means you have to go back and compensate for that, either by inflating a bit more or deleting whatevers clipping through.

The third issue sounds like an issue with the weighting. Unfortunately that's quite advanced, its outside of the scope of my little guide here but I'm sure theres many guides on painting weights elsewhere if you would like to fix it.

Thanks for the reply. 

I was actually able to fix most if not all the issues after a few more hours of trial and error (That I know of), it was just a LOT of fine tweaking. Had to delete one of the Bands on the right arm because it was always clipping

I am not entirely sure if it looks good though? or if it's just me knowing the flaws of the armor already lol.

Great, I'm glad you figured it out :) It looks fine to me!

Thanks a ton for this guide! I haven't tried converting a mod armor yet but I was able to make changes to a couple of vanilla armors.

I feel so lucky! Thank you so much for the guide. This is my first time doing refitting and it worked like a charm!

 

I have a small issues when refitting with Schlong of SAM enabled where the schlong hangs out of the outfit. Is there any way for me to fix it? I assume it's because Schlong of SAM uses a separated NIF for the genital?

Thank you thank you again!

I think in this case it might help to add slot 52 to the outfit to hide the genitals. It would be done in the esp.

Hello! I just got back into Skyrim modding just recently, and I found this and wanted to refit some cool armors. I was able to follow most of the info to a T without much problem. However, the problem I did run into seems to be a big one: the Nif file. I can’t seem to find the correct one that I use in game...I searched but A little sunny is there any chance you could tell me where that it would possibly be it?

More so, I made the files for both and was able to convert it too male, (Im using a female armor.) but everything come up as a red !, even for the female version now

i think it happens when you haven't converted SE outfit to LE (maybe reverse too, not sure)

I'm not sure what you mean? What nif file?

This is what it's telling me, I believe it has something to do with the NPC root? And I included the Shorts, It's part of the Black Viper WIll Armor, I was just curious to see if I could. It's Modular so that also may be a problem

The version error means the nif isn't made for the game which your outfit studio is set to (for example using legendary edition nif while outfit studio's target game is set to special edition)

You have to change the target game or convert the mesh to whichever edition using nif optimizer tool.

Alright thank you! I'll give it a Try, I know I'm using the Special Edition for sure
