Superior Lore-Friendly Hair - HD textures (by skyrimaguas)

Superior Lore-Friendly Hair by skyrimaguas

New mod added today. It's a re-texture for the vanilla hair and on a quick look at the screenshot it looks pretty neat.

 

NOTICE: Preference is entirely subjective, and the poll results do not determine what we will use in STEP. We simply want to understand what the community likes in the event that we cannot decide between two or more options.

These look pretty nice, at least the screen shots.

 

The general effect seems to be to make the hair look cleaner and better groomed and less dirty and less greasy. Whether you like your Skyrim inhabitants looking clean or dingy will probably drive whether you think this is an improvement.

 

EDIT What's the resolution? 2k

 

Also seems to have download options for less shiny hair.

 

The comment that it is vanilla hair "Apachiified" makes sense.

2K Texture as stated in his file description.

 

I think its more then any current vanilla hair re-texture.

I'm not too keen to be honest. There is something... unnatural about them - and they also look too clean for me.

If this were used in a game set in a modern-day setting, with hair salons, then I can see the new retexture fitting. But Skyrim isn't set in modern day Earth, so... they stick out like a sore thumb. You could make a case for higher-class people to use these textures, but for everyone - it doesn't fit.

In game these look great. The hair doesn't look overly shiny etc.. You barely notice the difference unless you look for it. When you get closer it is more detailed and looks more like hair I think this is a must as now the NPCs have real looking hair that is not apachii but on the way with no loss to performance. It also makes AOF hair redundant.

 

As for the idea of salons, that is plain false - hair only needs to be washed with water and the natural oils that the head produces can produce nice shiny hair. Most people don't seem to know this though. I have a friend who hasn't washed his hair with anything but water for many years and you wouldn't know. Besides if you lived in a world where you never know when your going to bump into someone wearing an amulet of MARA and have to run off to get married it would probably pay to wash your hair in a nice clean stream on a regular basis.

Well, correct my mistaken initial impression. I, like most other people today, wash my hair with additional products, so it's easy to assume that if you don't use them, your hair will be in a very bad state.

 

But, still, AOF hair isn't the only hair mod used by STEP. There's also More Realistic Hair, which is more comprehensive. Does this mod completly overwrite that one?

No it doesn't completely overwrite it as it only provides 2 texture files the same ones that AOF uses they just seem to be better but still a matter of taste I guess, I have noticed better hair on some NPCs in the game since I tried it

 

Washing hair without product would at first make your hair worse but after a few days your hair would look better (I bet there is a lot of big business that wouldn't want that known, look at how much they spend on advertising) - again a matter of choice. But fairly sure the people of yore did not go around with horrible greasy hair if they didn't have to. Look at me giving hair care advice on here and I'm well shorn.

If there is no performance impact, and also a downscaled version (to 1k or 512) then I'ld give this mod a go. I never liked apachii hair styles at all, so a vanilla hair replacer is just what I've been looking for.

Superior Lore-Friendly Hair and AOF Hair only consist of 2 file which are Hairlong.dds and Hairlong_n.dds.

They both overwrite More Realistic Hair for these files but More Realistic Hair cover additional hair dds also.

 

So basicly the debate would be AOF Hair vs Superior Lore-Friendly Hair since they edit the same exact file.

AOF Hair have the same resolution as original Beth texture while Superior Lore-Friendly Hair is at 2K.

 

EDIT: The author also uploaded a 1K version today, 2K all the way though. :)

We'll have to evaluate the less saturated and less shiny versions for how they look like in game with and without ENB (This also refers to Skyrim Revisited - so get it going guys!)

 

I'll wait for a admin to make it official, but I'ld like to encourage you to test this mod for inclusion in STEP 2.2.6

In almost all cases, 1k is better for textures. Why? Because it doesn't use up that much VRAM. I'd use 2k mainly for textures used on large objects, like structure, or giant creatures.

Well, given I've been promoted to orange, your wish will be granted!

That's debatable depending on each setup. Of course, if you are tight on VRAM you wouldn't want to waste ressource on small thing like hair, clutter or any other minor stuff.
But, if there is no vram/ram issue,  2K textures for hair would definitely have a high position in my I want list.

... he said before crashing into the "3 GB RAM usage"-Wall of Death. Be aware that any further texture load can make Skyrim use that tiny bit more RAM that makes your Skyrim become a CTD-nightmare.

We're going to need screenshots of what is currently in STEP compared to the 1K and the 2K options of this mod. FRAPS is good for this and is free (though the paid version is worth every penny if you do a lot of capturing).

      QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.
      The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:
      What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.
      The following NPCs and situations are addressed:
      Disables collision while the player is in dialogue. Disables collision between the player and their allies. Disables collision between the player and their summons. Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons. Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).

      I recently installed the latest Wyre Bash update, 310 Beta 1. I installed it because whenever I would try to save my Bashed Patch esp for Fallout: New Vegas, I would get this particular error message, and the patch itself does not save.
      "< not supported between instances of 'nonetype' and 'int'".
      It would also not register the masters for the patch in the screen section  beside the load order. I have reinstalled Wyre Bash, I have also deleted the previous patch (Which also had the same error), and I don't know what else to do in this case. U have some coding knowledge, but I think it won't help here.
      What should I do? I have attached a screenshot below of the error messsage itself and how no masters show up in the section for them in the GUI.
