How to Nif

Postby Fenrir » Mon Dec 22, 2014 11:14 am

I've finally settled on a Power Armor mesh I like for New Vegas, but the shoulder pads are still ridiculously large. I'd like to just remove them altogether from the T45-D set. Instead of just mangling the armor trying to do it myself, could someone tell me how I might go about taking those off, or perhaps even making them smaller?

So I did find the power armor file and figure out how to remove the pauldrons, and saved the nif, but the save isn't seem to be translating to the game. I can't find any other mesh that would be what they use for the T45-D, so is there an extra step I'm missing to relay the change to the game's model?

Is it showing the default PA mesh or nothing at all? If it's the former, you should be able to just rename the mesh and have it overwrite what's in the bsa. If it's the later, then there's something wrong with the mesh.

The default. So rename the one it's using and add my edited one?

Oh. Good news, through all my messing about, I actually got another remesh to work, now my T51-B looks a lot better. I'll just use that.

Mmhm. Finally got it working after I figured out what was messed up. Now both sets of the good looking power armor are even better looking.
