Seamless Equipment Replacer for Robert Male Body v5.2 -- Bodies, Armors, & Clothes

NOTE: If you've come here directly, please visit the main "Seamless Equipment" page.




Wrye Bash - It's a requirement because it's the best... And I don't know how to make OBMM or NMM scripts...

BBB Enabled Skeleton - Despite males not needing this, you will end up installing it at some point. Don't be "That Guy" and complain about boobs stretching to infinity; these skeletons are better in every way and useful for more things than just BBB.


Description
This is the "Seamless Equipment" conversion of the one and only RobertMaleBodiesReplacerV52 [RMv52]. While I was sifting through the hundreds of files in RMv52, I realized the amount of time and effort that must've gone into making so many male body types and clothes and armor for each one... Suffice to say Robert2 is the master of modelling male anatomy.

Anyway, what this mod does is change the neckseam vertex normals on all the bodies, clothes, and armors contained in the original RMv52 to match those of seammended heads. For best results, you must use this mod with a custom race or race overhaul that comes with one of the seammended head meshes and textures. To learn more about seammended head meshes, go to:


To find more seamless equipment or learn what this seammending business is about, go to the "Seamless Equipment" main page.

Also check out "Setbody Reloaded": Thousands of high quality bodies of every shape & size with the ability to change and customize PC and NPC bodies on the fly or pre-assign them based on race or other criteria, all based on the same techniques to create these seamless heads and bodies. The tools and templates used to make these meshes seamless are also in Setbody's download section. You can make your own collection of clothes and armor seamless.


Installation Instructions

STEP 1:
Install Robert Male v5.2 CORE Files
1. Despite my praise and admiration of Robert's Males, if you use H06 Race Revolution or Seamless OCOv2, you must UNINSTALL the old version of RobertMaleBodiesReplacerV52 [RMv52].

2.
If you don't use H06RR or OCO, do the opposite and INSTALL RobertMaleBodiesReplacerV52 [RMv52].

3.
After you've [1]uninstalled or [2]installed RMv52, download and install the replacement in this mod's download section. Follow the instructions in the modified Wrye Bash Wizard carefully. The modified WizBAIN follows the same sequence as the original's minus a few steps that would be redundant or cause problems.

* If you have Seamless OCOv2 installed, use "SE- Robert Male v5.2 CORE for OCO" instead of the normal one. After installation, Make sure you don't have a file called "MaleBodyReplacerV5.esp" in your Oblivion/Data folder. If you have it, delete it.

4. If you think the male tails for beast races (Argonians & Khajiits) don't display properly, download the optional "TAILS" package and install the tails for the body type you chose. Note: This method uses the BLOCKHEAD BodyAssetOverrides mechanism. You must have BLOCKHEAD installed.


STEP 2: Install Robert Male v5.2 Replacers for Mods - Optional
Legacy mods such as OOO, MMM, Frans, etc, came with Robert Male v4 compatibility meshes, but they weren't updated to v5. Therefore I updated all the meshes where appropriate (skin exposed at seams) and also molded their shapes to be more like v5 Muscular Body. So there are two versions -- one is the MOLDED version; and the other has meshes modified only when skin was exposed at the seams. There may be some clipping issues with the MOLDED version so beware, I haven't tested them extensively.

1.
Install OOO(v1.36+), MMM, Frans, etc, satisfying all their requirements.

2. Download one of the "all-in-one" add-on packages in this mod's download section. Install by overwriting the old files with the new ones.

* As of v1.1, the original replacers have been bundled into the all-in-one BAINs. The instructions have been updated to reflect this change.



Uninstallation Instructions
Delete the files or overwrite them with files from the original Robert Male v5.2 or the original replacers listed above.
