I'm not sure why (maybe because I got the game from Steam?) but my FO4 folder didn't come with Data/Meshes. I have the Data folder. And it has sub-directories like Textures and Materials but no Meshes.
At any rate, I've tried looking for xEdit but everything points to TES5Edit. Which I downloded but it only wants to see Skyrim. So did I get the correct program? If so, how do I make it look at FO4? If not, can you provide a link to the correct download page?
- You can simply manually create the "meshes" folder as a sub-directory in the "Data" folder - Once done, it's a good idea to at least create a second sub-directory in "Meshes" such as "My s*censored*y new armor mod" or some such - You could also put the "My s*censored*y new armor mod" directory in either "Armor" or "Clothing" or even "Custom" sub-directory to make them more compatible/familiar to the vanilla Fallout 4 directory structure.
You don't need to specify the "Data" part of the file structure when typing in filenames, as Fallout 4 already knows, and in fact will only look for meshes, in the "Meshes" directory or and subsequent sub-directories, (same with Textures and Materials)
- TES5Edit is the application often referred to as "xEdit". BUT ... You MUST rename the executable to FO4Edit in order for it to understand that you are editing Fallout 4 not Skyrim - Detailed Instructions on what and how to get it to work are written on the FO4Edit page here on the Nexus.
