How To Bodyslide/UUNP!

Author: Robton | Posted: 04th November 2015 | Posted in: Skyrim, Tutorials

This is a short guide on how to use Bodyslide/UUNP to convert a supported armor set to your preferred bodymod.

Start by getting the latest version of Bodyslide 2/Outfit Studio

Then either use Bodyslide to make your own preset, or use the presets of preinstalled popular bodies, or download presets others have released like my TMB body or KW’s UNPFF body

If you download those you need to extract the presets to the right folder. IO inside the CalienteTools\BodySlide\SliderPresets folder.

Then download and install a Bodyslide/UUNP compatible armor set like KW’s files for the Dragonbone Barbarian or Gamefever’s Merta Black Rose (Note: the Bodyslide/UUNP files aren’t always localized on the same page as the armor itself)

Then select the first related item under the Outfit/Body Menu

Then select your preferred preset under the Preset Menu

Then press “Build”

Proceed to to this to all the related items under the Outfit/Body Menu.


NB! Some Bodyslide/UUNP slider files don’t give the desired results, the only way to deal with that is to do the work yourself in an more advanced 3D editor like 3DS Max or Blender. But this is an easy way for beginners to do it themselves.

    Hello Robton,

    first I wanna thank you for all your fantastic works. I changed the Body from 7B to TMB and I like it very much. I have downloaded all Armors and Clothes for this Body!
    Then I saw this TUT and I have done it like in the Pictures. The clothes looks great, but I have a problem now:
    There are gaps at the hands and feet’s.
    Do you know how I can fix this? It is the first time I use the outfitstudio!

    Greetings from Germany!

      Thanks, glad you like it. The bodyslide files for TMB is sadly quite outdated, I stated this in the “Warning” section on that mod page. If I’m not mistaken, the hands and feet for all weights are fitted to max weight. So if you are using anything under max on the weight slider, there’s gonna be a gap. Sorry about that, but I don’t know how to fix it :(

    • Angie says:

      Thanks for your fast reply!

      The problem is if I use the max in weightslider I have gaps, if I use 0 weight everything looks fine. That’s funny. :D
      Maybe you convert someday the JinhuaCat. ;) Now I uninstall all the converted Armors made by me and use only yours.
      Thank you anyway.
      I like the body, but it works only with my Customrace. Don’t know why. Do I need a sepcial Skeleton for the TMB?
      I use XPMS Skeleton a long time. First I thought that’s the issue. All my Races still uses the 7B..weird..

      Now I saw the warning! I have to say sorry..
      My english is not so good, I hope you understand what I wrote.

    • Robton Robton says:

      Duh, of course it was the 0 weight that was fine. I got those mixed up all the time since I don’t really use BS for skyrim myself.

      Hope it isn’t too much of a issue for you. I totally understand if you switch to another body mod who works better with BS. Who knows, maybe if the remaster won’t take my current mods as they are, there is a chance I will be dedicating some time to fix the Bs issue ;)

      TMB should work fine with xpms and xpmse, I use that myself.

    • Angie says:

      No, no!
      This is no problem for me. ;)
      As I said, it was the first time I had used the BS, and if it does not work with TMB, then not. I now use the conversions for TMB by you. And hope for new ones!

      Now I just need to find the fault why only my custom races have this body.

      Thanks again and have a nice weekend!

    I have a question, does this work if you install it with NMM? Is there a version for that? My mods are all on, but they are not showing up in bodyslide. Halp?

    • Robton Robton says:

      This is not the support thread for the mod, go to the mod page for Bodyslide, you’ll have better luck getting an answer there.

  • Deane says:

    Im confused.

    I tried to convert the Yennefer lingerie based on the slider set that was provided by the mod. Converting to TMB of course. So I got your bodyslide files.. install it and.. it didnt show up in BS. Confused, I tried downloading another body that offers body slides as well.. Install that and.. it shows up. Checked the folder.. your bodyslide files and that body files are in the same directory.. ../SliderPresets

    That test body was based on CBBE tho, if it matters.

  • rikten says:

    hello , i’ve a problem with the texture of the body , the nipples are under the breast , it’s ugly , anyone have a solution please ?

    • Robton Robton says:

      Sounds like you use CBBE textures for an UNP based body, or vise versa. You probably should check that out. Otherwise you should seek help on the Bodyslide mod page, or a forum. This is a guide, not support unfortunately.

    • rikten says:

      thx for your comment

  • Dee says:

    Thank you for another great tutorial!


  • sniperdoc says:

    Just for clarity, when you say “Done!” does that mean all the changes were automatically applied to the armors that are installed via NMM, e.g. the Ursine Armor Pack UNP HDT, with the Ursine Armor Pack for UUNP Bodyslide HDT files that have been installed. It has modified the existing UNP files, so when I uninstall the mod, I can literally take that archive and rename it to “Ursine Armor – TMB” for example?

    • Robton Robton says:

      Yes the UNP files were replaced, and the bodyslide files can be removed

  • sniperdoc says:

    Well, I got as far as “Then select the first related item under the Outfit/Body Menu” and I didn’t see the Ursine Armor Pack in there? My assumption was that where you said “download and install a Bodyslide/UUNP compatible armor set” meant I could use NMM to install the original Ursine Set (as listed on your download page for the Ursine set) then I installed your TMB modified set over that (it’s got a little bit of a glitch on the left bracer that I wanted to fix).

    However, when I open up Bodyslide, I don’t see the Ursine set in there. Stuck…? Sorry?

    • Robton Robton says:

      Go to the optional files and get the uunp sliders

    • sniperdoc says:

      The ones from the TMB archive right? I did that?

    • Robton Robton says:

      From the armor as well

    • sniperdoc says:

      I think have to restrict myself to only modifying UUNP armors that have the slides included? The Ursine Armors don’t come with sliders, unfortunately. You probably still have them from previously editing the files? Just a guess…? Thanks for helping in any case!

    • Robton Robton says:

      It’s not always on the same page no, but its still pretty easy to find:

      Or you could just get the one I made:

    • sniperdoc says:

      That’s so friggin’ weird. I actually looked for Ursine Armor UUNP on google and it didn’t come up with that page!?

      As far as using yours, I did mention in a previous comment that I was trying to edit yours since it had a clipping issue on the left bracer. ;)

      In any case, thanks AGAIN for helping. :) I’m adding the Ursine UUNP Bodyslide HDT package to NMM now, on top of the UNP original. I’ll see if I get stuck anymore. xD

  • sniperdoc says:

    Nothing short of awesomeness here! :) I’ll try it out asap.
