Hello guys.

 

I've created a custom follower out of my character, and everything is great, except she doesn't have the character's body shape. The .npc file doesn't seem to work well, and I could not find any use for .jslot in this matter. I went throw some voodoo in BodySlide, created a separate mesh for her and tried to reshape it to look as original. It's... not the same thing, to say the least, and painfully time consuming.

 

Is there a better way to accomplish this and get the follower the precise body from your character?

I'll use Sofia as an example. Sofia has both the normal download and a bodyslide replacer version that allows applying other bodies to her. If I save the sliders I use to tweak my female player body into a special version, ie like modifying the sliders for CBBE curvy, then saving that as a version as "CBBE curvy my special variant", which I apply to my player, I can recall it using bodyslide studio and apply it to the Sofia bodyslide.  (much like fitting armor)

 

So yeah...but you need that special addon mod that allows applying different bodies to the follower, and tbh, I don't know how you create those. They aren't all that common in follower downloads. I've downloaded about three dozen followers and perhaps a half dozen of those have the capability. I have a hard time with some followers I've installed, trying to fit armor for that very reason. (Sha, Elwin, and several others...dunno how to fit armor for them because they have no bodyslide to work with, the key thing here being they have no bodyslide to work with.

Thank you for your reply. Though, saving the preset from Bodyslide sliders is not a problem, that's what I did, since I couldn't find another option. The problem is that my character was shaped in Racemenu, and I want that shape to give to the follower. So I'm wondering if there is a way.

I'm not exactly sure, how the sliders in Racemenu are applied to the body. But AFAIK, there is no way to export them for use on a follower. The only thing you can do:

 

1. Assign separate body meshes to your follower

2. Try to recreate the body shape you want in Bodyslide.

3. Build that body and copy it over to the folder where your follower's body meshes are.

Thank you for your reply. And yes, that's exactly what I am doing, I was hoping to find an easier and more precise alternative to that.

So I am trying to figure this same issue out. I made a follower from my player and the body isn't the same. There has to be a way to make the follower have the exact same body as the player. The player body was created in RaceMenu...the meshes were changed by RaceMenu for the body so I would like to think that somewhere...somehow there are meshes saved that RaceMenu caused by changing the original body with the sliders in Racemenu. Otherwise how would the meshes change in the characters body...

 

Any Thought or new info beings no posts in over a year?

I don't know if you found the answer to your question, but did you implement .npc file of your character in your mod?

Hey everyone,

 

im having a similar issue. I made a custom body for my character using body slider, and cant seem to figure out how to transfer it to racemenu. All of the other posts i have seen said to mark the racemenu morph box that is below the build button, but i dont have that on my build slide. Any advice?
