*Special thanks to faeriexdecay for pointing these out to me!*

When I went to convert the raider armors to be Bodyslide compatibale, all the hoses and canisters mounted to the chest plates would skew horribly with even moderate adjustments.  Also, it really doesn't make sense to have hoses and tanks mounted to armor if they aren't actually serving a purpose.  With this thought in mind, I did a little mix'n'matching from other armor types (metal and leather) to give them a bit of diversity, but also give them a more "scrounged" feel.

1. Using your mod manager of choice, install the file
2. Run Bodyslide and apply your own style to the armors list shown in the pictures section
3. enjoy!

Known Issues:
- Certain adjustments will greatly skew/stretch/destroy the armor cohesion.  Long story short, Super large breasts and pregnant bellies don't go well with armors.

Anything that doesn't change the meshes for Raider armors.

Thanks to the following for doing such awesome work and inspiring me to release my own small edits:
Bethesda!  Seriously, We need more developers that are so mod friendly!
