Reduces the extra force applied on ragdolls to a more reasonable level and replaces ragdolls so that they bend and twist realistically and fall at a faster velocity. Increase friction to fix ice-like ragdoll sliding.

----------------------------------------------
Ragdolls will conflict with other mods that change the skeleton.nif
You don't need to use the following patch if you already use xp32 skeletons or are not using other mods that change the skeleton.nif.

If you have conflicting skeleton.nif you need to allow the skeleton from the other mod to replace the one from this mod. This will allow those skeletons to be used while keeping the changed force values.

Check Custom Skeleton Replacers for compatibly with other skeleton.nif:

Realistically, arrows do not apply force on bodies and will crumple to the ground. Should be more satisfying and less cartoonish. Basic magic attacks also apply, such as getting hit with a lightning strike will fry you and not push you away. There is an optional file to apply a bit more force if you desire.

FAQ
-----------------
Q:Arms do not raise above their shoulders.
A:There will be some bad deforming of the shoulders if I allowed this.

Q:Can't lift bodies
A:It depends on what part of the body you grab usually the upper torso is where it's easy to lift bodies.

Q:Ice spike spell, I fly off into space when I'm hit by it.
A:You are using another mod that changes that spell I didn't change anything with magic. The default spell doesn't apply knockdown.

Q:More force for magic and less for arrows?
A:Magic and arrows share the same force value so I can't make one have more force than the other.

Q:Paralyzes spell on death cause ragdolls to become statues(stiff)
A:It's a vanilla bug with that spell. I'm not aware if that can be changed or not.
