If your character is female and on the lower end of the weight triangle you might have noticed that the neck takes on a very concave shape.

I made this mod as an attempt to improve the neck shape and make it look more natural.

It is now a little wider at the base, wider in the middle and thinner/less bulgy where the neck meets the jaw.

WARNING: This mod might be redundant if your character has a high weight in the weight triangle, regardless of whether you're using a body replacer like CBBE or not. With high weight, the neck tends to take on a more normal shape.

REQUIRED MODS:
None.

INSTALLATION:
Use NMM to install it or drop the "Data" folder contained in the .zip-File right into your Fallout 4 game folder (usually ..Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4\)

Archive Invalidation needs to be turned on. See here if you don't know what that means: http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/4421/?

COMPATIBILITY ISSUES:
None. Unless you already have a mod that changes the head/neck mesh. (File is called: BaseFemaleHead_faceBones.nif)

PRESETS
If you want the presets to look the same you'll need the mods I listed below. Install "Natural Female Face" first and then overwrite with "Valkyr Female Face Textures". Also, as a tip: I recommend you download NifSkope or something and lower some of the Hairstyles of Commonwealth Cuts a bit to better fit on the head. Works out well for all characters and helps cover up the enormous forehead of the head mesh.
(Apply negative transforms to Z-Axis, start slow. Move, don't scale. Although you can scale too if needed.)
