I modded back in FO3, but it was always stuff for myself. I was never confident enough to post anything.
Almost 15 years later and I finally get around to playing FO4. Yea, it is what it is.
Anyway, after playing all of 2 days I decided I wanted a piece that was not in the game.
I wanted a Horizontal Concrete Beam. I had seen vertical ones in-game so I figured it would be easy.
BTW, I'm a programmer by day, but have no 3D modeling resources.
I'm using NifSkope 2.0 Dev 8.
Playing FO4 vanilla with DLCs and minimum mods.
The issue I am having is what I assume would be the collision mesh. I'm not certain because I can't see those meshes in NifSkope,
and it's a bit out of my knowledge base to even know if I am on the correct track.
The symptom is although the floor piece will snap in place, AI won't walk on it and my toon sinks a little into it.
I have spent days scouring my nif and comparing it to unpacked files from the game and it looks right.
Again, I am assuming something broke in a mesh I do not know how to view/fix.
The original nif I had seen was \Data\Meshes\DLC02\SetDressing\Workshop\ConcreteWallsWorkshopConcreteWall03.nif
That is the vertical one. I want a horizontal one. And the length has to be adjusted to match the walls.
In full disclosure when I was trying to figure out how to change the length without a 3D app,
I did find a mod on Nexus that had that piece, horizontal and longer just like I wanted.
But that one is not correct either, some messy stuff in the nif and did not work as-is as a floor piece.
It works as a wall piece, but not a floor (AI won't use it).
So I took that nif since it was the correct size and started cleaning up the blocks/nodes/connectionpoints/etc. in NifSkope.
And I am stuck. Everything in NifSkope looks correct (to me at least), but it's no good as a floor.
Is there anyone willing to take the nif I have edited and take a quick look in a 3D app to see if the mesh is messed up?
Is that even possible since it is not the original model?
I'm not allowed to upload the nif so I would also need input on how to share it.
