About this mod

Properly smooths out the shape of one of the rougher shaped hats in the game.

Permissions and credits
So, lots of people hit the smoothing modifier and call it a day. This is how you get garbage or the "TWB - CBBE Vanilla HighPoly Overhaul" that made FO4 mod of the month earlier the year I initially wrote this mod page.

  • Step 1: Weld seams, apply smoothing groups (very important, can't do in Blender)
  • Step 2: Change the tris into quads. Basically removes the diagonal line from the squares that make up the mesh. Didn't work cleanly on the small part at the top but okay.
  • Step 3: Smooth, pushing the button that makes it pay attention to smoothing groups.
  • Step 4: ???
  • Step 5: Profi--wait no, Conformulator to make the EGM files. Then send the files to a few friends to try out and then forget you were going to share it with the general public (that's you, the person reading this).
  • Step 6 is wait for someone to make a good retexture that isn't completely uniform across the entire hat I guess?

Original: 673 vertices,   1,300 triangles,  23 KB,  not skinned
Mine:      1,429 1414 vertices, 2,228 2124 triangles, 145 142 KB, properly skinned and conformulated

No performance hit

Highly recommended: Heaviin's Desperado Hat Retextured
