Since I have given up efforts in trying to make or modify meshes beyond minor tweaks with NifSkope, I am requesting some help. I would like to have armor variants of the various bolt quivers. Arrow quivers would be nice but not necessary.
The purpose of this is to separate the bolt quiver equipping with the crossbow. I will edit the standard quivers in NifSkope to only have the central arrow/bolt used in the drawing and firing animations. Its position will be tweaked to match up with the position of the armor quiver. Scripting will equip/unequip the armor bolt quiver whenever the actual ammo is equipped/unequipped.
I have tried using the quiver mesh in the armor addon and armor forms. While it appears and does not crash the game, it does not have the appropriate bone linking that it should. A bolt quiver on the belt should stay with the belt rather than pop up into the air when sneaking.
I am aware of the various mods out there that change the position of the bolts/arrows and that make the visible quiver selectable at install time. But none resolve the annoying re-positioning of bolt quivers between standing & sneaking short of making the entire quiver invisible and that results in a crossbow launching invisible ammo.
The only real solution is a different mesh tied to different points on the body/skeleton.
Desired bodies for the meshes to fit can be found in my mod Isharas Custom Player Body
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to assist.
