  1. I'm hoping to... I'm slowly creating while making my way through the NightasyTutorials. No problems about the skinflag thing. It's a mystery! That's partly why I started from scratch. I'm hoping I can figure out how it all comes together if I actually make it all myself. P.S. This is where I'm at right now:
  2. It looks pretty awesome!
  3. So yeah, I've been working starting with just a plain ol' cylinder for the past few hours and this is what I have so far... Loosely based off of this idea:
  4. I think I'm going to try starting over from the beginning...
  5. But I added the skinned settings back in and it's invisible... *sigh*
  6. Yeah, I was going to say... that worked for the cradle. (Yay!) But not the backpack (when worn).
  7. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAY! Thank you! SO. MUCH! :-D
  8. OMG I MAY HAVE JUST FIGURED IT OUT! About to test... ...nevermind... Still didn't work.
  9. Thanks for the encouragement. Weird about the 7z... it opened fine for me. Well, here, I just did a plain zip file of it:
  10. Thank you so much for your patience and help. I'm sorry for being so dense. I really try to fix things myself instead of being one of those people that doesn't try to learn and just has everyone else fix their stuff, but I'm just not figuring this out. I just worked on it for like another 4 hours. Still no luck. I even tried using Chesko's backpack (from Campfire- since I know his stuff is all done right), changing the fields to match, and pasting them in to create a whole new file. That one doesn't show up at all. I just wish I knew what I was doing wrong and understood better what each field does and what the codes and numbers all mean. I can guess at some things, but most of it is greek to me, so I'm just groping in the dark, trying to change things I don't understand. Here's the whole mess (The file that I seemed to make the most progress with in babyinbagsleeping.nif That's the one that shows up in CK, but not the game.): AttemptsatWarBabies.7z P.S. I haven't made final changes to the baby yet because I want to get the mesh showing up first and figure out what I'm doing wrong. :-) Don't worry- I do plan to take your advice and change the aesthetics before releasing anything officially.
  11. shows up in CK's preview window now, but doesn't show up in Skyrim. I'm getting 2 BSLighting error messages in the CK though, so I'm guessing I'm still missing something. Oh well, more playing with it tomorrow. At least I'm making progress, right? :-)
  12. Thanks! :-) I wanted a baby that would fit better with "The Kids Are Alright" mod and MakeHuman seems like a pretty good tool to do that. It's not perfect yet, but it at least looks like a human baby lol. (AND there are tools to make pointy ears and such so possibly mer babies in the future too!) Yes, I will have it in the bag better. (I may totally end up redoing the bag altogether.) I stopped to try and get it in the creation kit while it was still in a rough form because I wanted to make sure it would work before I went much further. I redid the n_maps last night and they work now. :-)
  13. Will do. Organization isn't my strong point lol. You don't want to see my desktop, trust me. :-D I'm apparently using NifSkope 2.0.0 PreAlpha 6
  14. I was going to have it a bit more securely tucked into the bag/sling... but really? I didn't even really think about that since it's not anatomically correct or gender specific. That will be my next puzzle then... trying to make clothing for it. MakeHuman only has very modern clothing options. OH! That was so helpful! Thanks! I had no idea. Now that I know that, I at least have a place to start looking for the problem. :-D Well, I just got the baby to show up in the crib mesh... but not the crib. *facepalm* Then, I tried just plopping the baby on the original (unaltered) crib in NifSkope and merging those files and that shows up just fine. So... it's some problem with the crib I edited the blanket on. I'm going to have to look at it tomorrow. My eyes are too tired lol. I have been comparing files and tweaking for hours. That said, I wanted to make sure I thanked you tonight, because you are really awesome and this is the second time you have helped me out! You rock!
  15. In case you're still having an issue with this, I used this tutorial and it worked wonderfully for me because I could actually watch the video and follow step by step.
