Female Muscle Mod for CBBE V3 and UNP - Version 2.1

I just happen to be a big fan of Tigersan's female muscle mod that was created for the vanilla Skyrim body. Unfortunately the mod was never updated to work with latest body meshes that many people use these days. Alternative mods for both the CBBE and UNP body types didn't give me the ripped look that I was looking for. So I made my own.

In both cases, the starting point was the body mesh, which was sculpted into a high-poly mesh using Blender. XNormal was used to generate the normal map, and some work was done in The Gimp to remove the alpha channel and create mipmaps.

Maps have been sized to 2048x2048 for the body/feet and 2048x1024 for the hands. I have not compressed the maps as it appears DXT* compression introduces some artifacts.

If the neck seam is an issue I recommend the Caliente texture blender tool.

Feel free to use this normal map. All I ask for is to be credited.
Please DO NOT upload this mod to any other site. The Steam Workshop has some particularly nasty verbiage in their terms and conditions that basically hands over all rights to Valve.
