Hi, I'm using Calientes Female Body Mod Big Bottom Edition -CBBE- with
UNP BLESSED BODY- UNPB REDUX PROJECT and i am using the bbp option.
I am also using this armor mod:
Killer Keos Skimpy CBBE V2-V3 Armor Replacer -Work In Progress-
and it does not support bbp, nor, does the author intend to, as he/she has made this very clear,
So, I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to make me an in depth youtube video tutorial on how to convert killer keos armor mod to support the above mentioned body type.
and before you ask, yes, I have already thoroughly searched the web to see if a conversion was already available, (of which there is not) and looked for other tutorials on how to do so, all of which were extremely outdated, weren't for my specific need, or just plain weren't comprehensive and more complicated than they needed to be. Thanks in advance.

p.s. the above listed mods can be found at the following links:
Calientes Female Body Mod Big Bottom Edition -CBBE- :
http://skyrim.nexusm...com/mods/2666/?
UNP BLESSED BODY- UNPB REDUX PROJECT:
http://skyrim.nexusm...om/mods/37900/?
and of course the armor mod
Killer Keos Skimpy CBBE V2-V3 Armor Replacer -Work In Progress-
http://skyrim.nexusm...com/mods/3654/?

thanks again!

P.S. I am using CB++, but using CB++ Does not make the armors bbp compatible (by that i mean the
breasts won't bounce while wearing the armor, which is what i mean by bbp compatible) all cb++ does, is make the armor fit the body's
bust, which is not enough. if there is a way to do both with cb++ then let me know how, because i have tried and couldn't figure it out.

Adding BBP is a long and complicated process that involves complex editing tools and something known as weight painting. That you even have to ask means you probably won't be able to do it, but just google weight painting if you really want to get started.

i am fully aware of this, and already have the programs nifscope and blender, so if you could just show me how to do it
with those two programs, i would be much obliged.

You apparently lack reading comprehension as well. I cannot help you.

I remember finding a tutorial once for New Vegas that showed you how to add breast physics to a mesh without having to use weight painting. That was how I added BBP to my custom armors in New Vegas. Though I don't know if it'll work for Skyrim. In fact, I think I tried to do it for Skyrim and failed miserably. Then again, I still haven't been able to make an armor that's weight slider compatible, so it might've just been a mistake on my part.

 

You'll have to google it because I don't recall the specifics. I seem to remember you had to open a BBP body mesh in NifSkope and the armor you want to convert in another NifSkope window. Copy the "breast" nodes and paste them into the armor window. And either A) copy the armor and paste it onto the body, or B) copy the body and paste it onto the armor (I can't remember which it was). Whichever one it was, you then saved the file, loaded it into blender, do a bone weight copy onto the areas you want to ... jiggle, delete the body, import the BBP skeleton, etc.

 

I'm sorry I don't remember the details. I'm just trying to give you the gist of it so you'll know the tutorial if you find it. Again, I don't know if this method works for Skyrim.

 

Although, now that I think of it, I seem to recall I made BBP armor by simply doing bone weight copy without having to do all the hocus pocus in NifSkope first. It's been a while.

 

Good luck.

thank you claypidgeon162 for your civilized response, however, I am more of a visual learner, which is why i asked for a
video tutorial, none the less, thank you for your reply, it is much appreciated, NOW, TO the nasty troll who apparently didn't know any more about it then I did, which is why he took to criticizing, instead of helping.I have this to say, I never
said that I didn't know how to do it, as i have already heard the basics of how to do this as well as the process of
weight painting, unfortunately, (as i mentioned in my ORIGINAL POST) none of the tutorials that i found were
comprehensive and/or did not mention how to do this with nifscope and blender, and i don't want to buy expensive third
party editing software to do the same thing with freeware! ESPECIALLY when I know that it is possible to make armor bbp
compatible with nifscope and blender as
well as weight painting it and making it compatible with the weight slider! I know this because I have seen separate,
individual video tutorials on how to do so. (none of which showed how to do the other things that i want to do,
or how to make it compatible with skyrim after the fact.) so to recap, what I wanted is a "all in one" video tutorial on how to do all this with nifscope and blender, and then how to make the armor compatible with skyrim.
I AM PRETTY SURE THAT I HAD MADE ALL OF THIS PERFECTLY CLEAR IN MY ORIGINAL POST, SO I GUESS YOU'RE THE ONE WHO LACKS
READING COMPREHENSION, myztikrice! Oh, and just to let you know, THERE IS NEVER AN EXCUSE FOR BEING A DICK.

@myztikrice: BUUURN! haha  :laugh: 
@kakren2: Nice job, mate. Wanting to learn more and take the initiative so that bethesda will be a better place. Kudos, man.

Anyway, I want to know whether anyone made a solution a.k.a. mod on the follower named kamille shy and her lack of jiggliness (if you know what I mean).

Wow this is an older thread. Anyway, I'm gonna see if i can get blender working. I've been wanting to add some bounce to Blacktalon armor. I found a SeveNBase set, but no bbp.

 

Thread necromancy with nothing useful to add.
