About This File
Each and every man or woman in FO4 now has a unique realistic body shape partly depending on their SPECIAL stats. Also a powerful tool to tweak the bodies of player and NPCs in game.
In short, it's a Body Shape Randomizer + In-Game Bodyslide for male and female players and NPCs.
How it works is every time you load a new area (go through load order, fast travel, etc), the mod will pick ten new (so Piper won't keep getting different boob-jobs in the same play-through, don't worry) male and female female NPCs to randomize their body shapes. This process is performance-friendly (it will take a couple of minutes in the background though) and is partly random and partly based on the NPC's base SPECIAL with 5 being the mid-point of each:
- High Strength: high muscle definition, wide chest, big arms etc (more powerlifter-like) - and vice versa
- High Endurance: generally more toned, more muscly lower body but not as dramatic as Strength and Agility (more marathon-runner-like) - and vice versa
- High Charisma: high chance of getting the generally-accepted attractive features (big tits, big ass, small waist, etc)
- High Agility: toned body and but lean, not bulky (acrobat-like) - and vice versa
- High Luck: big tits (well-endowed and all that lol)
- Strength: Bodybuilder-like
- Agility: Runner-like
The body will then automatically update and stay at that shape (unless you decide to do some manual tweaking yourself - see below). Every clothing the NPC wears will fit accordingly.
The result is an increase in realism and immersion because well, in real life, each person's body shape is different too. If you use Four-Play mods, it gives you another reason to be excited when a NPC strips and has sex - you get to see what's underneath.
You'll be given the "Ring of Diverse Bodies" when first installed the mod. Equip this to turn on the customization menu/ tweak player's body. Keep this equipped and talk to a NPC to tweak that NPC's body. There are 80 sliders to tweak the heck out of (i.e. all default BodySlide sliders except Pregnant Belly) for women, and 17 for males. From 2.0 onward, the old clunky message boxes for manual tweaking are no more, replaced by a control system using Numpad + and Numpad - (by default).
You can change the two hotkeys by
- set DB_Plus to #
- set DB_Minus to #
Recommended (not having those won't break the mod, but they expand the content available)
(For male features to work) Dongs of Fallout and its requirements. Diverse Bodies will take care of the body shapes and sizes (i.e. chest. biceps, calves etc), while Dongs of Fallout take care of the penis shape, size and erection.
(For vagina shape tweaking to work) Animated Fannies
Extract in Data folder or normally like any other mods with NMM or MO
That's it. You don't need to build anything manually or even install Bodyslide - everything is done by the mod in game.
For those using Unique Player / Unique Follower, you have to do a few simple extra steps (thanks to Jenartor for pointing these out).:
Copy FemaleBody.nif and FemaleBody.tri files from "Data\Meshes\Actors\Character\CharacterAssets" to "Fallout 4\Data\meshes\actors\character\PlayerCharacterAssets" or "Fallout 4\Data\meshes\actors\character\CaitBody" (repeat for the rest of the folders for the followers)
You can still use a specific Bodyslide preset with this. Just remember to tick "Build Morphs" when batch building.
- Diverse body textures
- 3D Body hair
- Expired for F4SE, LooksMenu and F4EE morphing system
- Caliente and Ousnius for Bodyslide, CBBE and the female sliders
- smorris2012 for Super Hero Body and the body sliders for males
What's New in Version 2.0
- 2.0 - Revamped the controls for manual tweaking the body - now using Numpad + and - to increase and decrease seamlessly after you select which slider to tweak
- 2.0 - offer vagina shape customizations by providing optional integration with Animated Fannies
- Now also randomizes and allow you to tweak male NPCs - requiring Dongs of Fallout for male features to work
- 2.0 - For the randomization, SPECIAL will account for much less dramatic impact on the body shapes so that you don't get most normal NPCs flat-chested because they have shit stats like before
