Overview

This is the fourth part of the tutorial on how to create an armour for Fallout 4.

Here I am going to explain some existing alternatives to the process explained in the main tutorial (Creating an armour for Fallout 4. Part 1, Creating an armour for Fallout 4. Part 2 and Creating an armour for Fallout 4. Part 3)

Alternatives

The main process explained previously consisted in the following steps:

Import process
Fallout 4 nif file -> 3ds Max -> Fallout 3 nif file -> Blender
Work in Blender
Create meshes
Create UV maps
Add weights to the meshes
Export process
Blender -> Fallout 3 nif file -> 3ds max -> Fallout 4 nif file -> NifSkope -> Fallout 4 nif file (fixed)

Instead of using 3ds max as a bridge between Blender and the game, there are two other alternatives, each one with its pros and cons.

Alternative 1 Alternative 2 Alternative 3
3ds max Outfit Studio Bethesda Nif Export Plugin
Pros Better weighting of the meshes
Allows high quality of meshes (full precision) Creates all required data
Cons
