About this mod

FRIK brings the full player body to life in VR! Inspired by VRIK from SkyrimVR FRIK aims to bring the same level of immersion of having your body visible to Fallout 4 VR. Full body Inverse Kinematics has been implemented to animate the arms and legs based on your controller and HMD position.

Permissions and credits
FRIK is currently in an alpha state!!!!   Expect frequent bug fixes and releases.  

Inspired by the wildly successful and immersive VRIK mod developed by prog I bring you FRIK - Full Player Body for Fallout 4 VR!

While not a straight port of VRIK the aim is to bring similar functionality into Fallout 4 VR that has been enjoyed for a while in Skyrim VR.   The arm and leg IK solver are heavily adapted from VRIK.

  • Full Body Inverse Kinematics including arm and walking animation
  • Pipboy wrist control on the left arm with touch on/off operation
  • Configuration holotape to calibrate height and move body around to taste
  • Papyrus support to add detection sphere events to bones on the player skeleton
  • Selfie Mode!
  • Arms only mode!  - This hides the body so only arms visible like in first person mode.    Useful for sitting play!
  • Left handed mode supported - Still in development but basic functionality is present.   

Development will continue with more features planned!

  • Install as normal through your mod manager and enable the esp
  • Recommended to not use during intro.   Enable after leaving the first vault after getting the Pipboy
  • You need to edit your Fallout4Custom.ini to add or amend the following lines to look like this (thanks u/JAPH):

sResourceStartUpArchiveList=Fallout4 - Startup.ba2, Fallout4 - Shaders.ba2, Fallout4 - Interface.ba2, Fallout4_VR - Shaders.ba2
sResourceIndexFileList=Fallout4 - Textures1.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures2.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures3.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures4.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures5.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures6.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures7.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures8.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures9.ba2, Fallout4_VR - Main.ba2, Fallout4_VR - Textures.ba2


  • Any mod that fundamentally changes the player skeleton.   CBBE has been tested and is fine
  • Idle hands - This basically replaces the functionality in idle hands
  • Smooth Movement - This is integrated directly into this mod so do not run alongside the standalone version

  • Check https://www.reddit.com/r/Fallout_VR for discussion and support
  • Similar to Idle hands I recommend wrist based pipboy with the following scale settings in Fallout4Prefs.ini.   Set the maxscale to taste

fPipboyMinScale = 0.0100

  • If anyone's using HUIDE_VR previously alongside Idle Hands, make sure to reinstall HUIDE_VR after disabling Idle Hands and choose Vanilla in the installer instead. Kept crashing until I did. ( thanks u/Zebrazilla !!)
  • Note that pipboy touch operation requires you to be looking at the screen and the screen to be facing your face to work.   
  • Do not save while in Power Armor.    Power Armor does some weird stuff to the skeleton so best to not do this.   If you do however just simply exit the Power armor, Save your game, and reload to fix any issues
  • I do recommend you play through the intro and get out of the vault after you have picked up the pipboy before turning this on for now

Mod Recommendations:
  • Virtual Chems - This mod by CylonSurfer works fantastically with the body to pull health and chem items off virtual pouches on your body
  • Virtual Holsters - This mod by CylonSurfer added realistic holstering and sheathing to the body using FRIK bonespheres!

Video Guides!

  • Moving diagonally can sometimes make steps look weird.  This is on my list to fix
  • I lose control of the body in menus so your body will look odd and not move.    This is on my list to fix
  • Some weapons are not set up in the hand that correctly.     If you run across anything that is especially bad let me know about it!
