About this mod

Subtle adjustment to the male skeleton.nif file

Permissions and credits
Just a quick little mod. I always liked the idea of the Better Male Skeleton mod thats been out for ages but it was just too exaggerated to my
tastes. In a fit of experimentation, I sorted out how to adjust my own skeleton to be more in tune with what I wanted the male body to look

Honestly this hasn't been very thoroughly tested, but I figured I would release it while I am thinking about it, otherwise it will never see
the light of day.

The adjustments I made were to narrow the hips slightly, lengthen the legs a little, lengthen the arms and widen the shoulders a bit and
broaden the chest just a tad. The changes are fairly small but together they make for a much more interesting torso, in my mind.

Unless I run into something fantastically wrong with this setup, I will likely never touch this mod again, but with the dearth of male
related mods out there, I felt it was my duty to make available something that other folks may enjoy.

This mod is not compatible with any mod that alters the skeleton.nif file. If you have a mod that does and you want to use my skeleton as well, just post in the comments section and I will see what I can do.


Just drag and drop, if you have unpacked your .bsa files then you may be asked to overwrite the vanilla skeleton.nif,
just replace it and you're ready to rock

Just head to
meshes/actors/character/character assets/skeleton.nif
and delete that file to use the vanilla skeleton again.
