Disclaimer: I did not make this mod. I only made the FOMOD installer and pictures.
This mod is now defunct and I can not provide support for it.

Re-Release Description:
This re-release of the famous Better Bodies mod adds proper Nexus Mod Manager support including a customizable installer that provides you options for all three flavours. This removes the need to run a executable (.exe) and saves you time in both installing and reconfiguring.

Any updates to this file will be corrections to the installer and not new content.

Better Bodies v2.2
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


After running this installer, check "Better Bodies.esp" under Data Files.

Created by Psychodog Studios (http://www.psychodogstudios.net) [Dead]

This is version 2.2 of Better Bodies. It replaces both the males and
the females of all eight humanoid races in Morrowind. You do not need
to have Tribunal or Bloodmoon installed to use Better Bodies. The
meshes are now in their final states (really this time), so anybody who
wants to can make clothing or armor for these bodies.

What's New
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Version 2.2 is expected to be the final version, since there's little left
to change. New features include:

-Erstam's seamless fix, which prevents seams between body parts from being
visible under certain lighting conditions
-Fixed the hole in the armpit that some people were complaining about
-Improved textures for all races

Version 2.1 was mainly a bug fix, however there were several other changes:

-Improved textures for first-person hands
-Many vertex weighting mistakes were fixed which caused clipping with
various clothing mods
-Replaced the entire model for the third-person hands. It's better
looking now and doesn't have that "claw" look anymore.

Version 2.0 produced several significant changes to the body, some cosmetic
and some functional. New features include:

-First person hands
-Nude version and permanent-underwear version
-Peanut gallery version (for insecure adolescent boys)
-Eliminated errors showing up in the Warnings.txt file
-Eliminated neck seam and made many other seams less visible
-Vastly improved backwards compatibility with mods and original clothes
-Improved the shape of the neck, calves, and ankles
-Improved the skin textures
-Better Bodies is now an esp instead of an esm. This makes it so that
dirty mods no longer replace body parts on your character. It also
allows Better Bodies to work with translated versions of Morrowind.

What's Next? [Discontinued]

Now that Better Bodies is completed, our next goals are to create new
clothing and armor that works with these bodies. This project is
called Better Clothes, and anyone who would like to help is welcome to
join. For more details, check out our forums.

Better Bodies provides several features that enable modders making
clothing and armor to be more flexible as far as what they can make. The
primary one is new slots that don't replace anything. If you can use a
slot that replaces a part, please do so, as this cuts down on the total
number of polygons. However, if you can't or don't want to replace a body
part, we've made four new slots available with Better Bodies. These slots
are "Left Foot", "Left Ankle", "Left Knee", and "Left Upper Leg." The
following guidelines should be used when using these slots:

Left Foot - Used for sandals and anything else that covers the feet
Left Ankle - Used for shirts and anything else that covers the upper body
Left Upper Leg - Used for pants, skirts, or anything covering the lower body
Left Knee - Miscellaneous slot (jewelry, accessories, etc.)
Skirt - Miscellaneous slot

Please refer to our web site for more information on how to make clothing
and armor.

At this point most of the BB team has moved on to other things. Although we
may be around on the forums to answer questions, don't expect us to do
much more with these body models. If someone wants to learn about how to
mod, we'd be glad to help, but don't expect anyone to make a mod for you.

Before you contact us with problems or questions, please read the FAQ
at http://bb.psychodogstudios.net/about.htm. [Dead] This has a list of some
of the most common questions we are asked, and asking us one of them
will probably result in a link to this page anyway. If you have read
the page and you still have a question, then feel free to contact us.

If you need to contact us, the best way is to post on our forums, at
http://www.psychodogstudios.net/forums. [Dead] For the fastest response, PM
one of us there. If for some reason our site goes down and our forums
are no longer there, you can email me (Neuman) at [ tomoldani [at] bigfoot [dot] com ]. [Unverified]
This email address will work as long as I have internet access, but please
try to use the forums first.
