I was planning to make a guide for my character's look once the newest BT Version drops also it was request by @asuma55555. Also i want to take the opportunity to invite you to share your own setup for fallout 4! For bodytalk or not, if you think ppl would like just do it! I think we can make a nice library of hot men with this.
My character's Lore: (Optional - share yours too) - WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD
This is not a lore discussion thread. I just added mine to give my character a background.
Btw, this mod helped me accomplishing this: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/35198
So to my character's look
Textures: I use a combination of textures so...
1- https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/37607 i'm using the diffuse map from this one and the Materials from it (BaseMaleBody_d.dds and all the .BGSM files) - The base texture
2- https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/18466?tab=files i'm using the specular from this one, i'm using the sweat version (BaseMaleBody_s.dds/ BaseMaleHands_s.dds and BaseMaleHead_s.dds) - to make it a bit more wet
3- https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/37875 i'm using the normal map from this one (BaseMaleBody_n.dds) - to get rid of body definition
Installing one after another won't work, you need to combine all the said files in a single mod so you won't overwrite things by mistake. Customizing your character is also about how to manage your files. Detailed explanation on how to combine body textures here:

Zex Skeleton Edits
I've applied some transforms to the zex skeleton bones (in other words i scaled them a bit), so i could get bigger shoulders and thicker neck to match bigger bodies more. Also i scaled the penis size to get 11% bigger.
Just install like any other mod and make sure to load it after the original zex skeleton. So ofc you want to have the ZEX skeleton installed already here: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/36702. I just did some personal edits, i don't have any credits over this file. mastercchris granted me permission to share these edits.
You can have my personal edits here:
Ulfberth's Zex Skeleton Tweaks.rar (NEW!!!) - Added CBP bones for physics and now optimized for masculine idle shared above
Note: If any important update comes out for zex skeleton, like NiO or something, you may want to roll back to the original skeleton to have any new features working right.
A true man must have a intimidating beard! I'm using modified beard for both my character and Longfellow you can get it here: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/10746
Once you have the beards installed, you can apply the looksmenu preset below and it'll automatically load the beard!
Bodytalk and Bodyslide Preset
Ofc i'm using bodytalk as body replacer, you can get it here: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/34208?tab=description, You want to load the bodytalk before the textures, cus there are some textures in there that could replace them.
Also you want to have my bodyslide project, cus i've made more tweaks to BTStomachFat to work better with my preset, bigger and more optimized balls, Tweaked shoulders and other things, also to make sure that you can select my preset in the preset selection:
Ulfberth's Bodyslide Body and Bodyslide Preset.rar (NEW!!!) - added support for latest bodytalk's CBP Physics integration, you need the newest Zex Skeleton, CBP (https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/39088?tab=files) and ZCBP (https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/39308)
🌑 just install using your mod manager like any other regular mod. Build the naked body tagged as TBOS-Bodytalk-V2 Ulfberth (For cut penis) or TBOS-Bodytalk-V2-Uncut Ulfberth (for uncut penis your choice) using the preset called "Big Bear".
Looksmenu Preset (you can share your looksmenu preset just if you want, its totally option, but at least share the values for the body)
I'm just sharing my personal character face cus i would like to see what people would do with him. Just please don't do anything that would break the role i assigned for him - See "My character's role" (remember, he's a BoS soldier, but it doesn't mean he can't abuse raiders and supermutants... or get abused by them ?). I've also included a preset for Longfellow (my most loyal friend, he's always guarding my back and taking advantage of it too why not hehe), Danse (another hot fuckbuddie) and Shaun (my son's hot lol).
*To load my preset just enter in console "slm 14" no quotations, then go to Preset then click on my "Ulfberth" to load my characters preset.
*If you want to load Shaun's preset on Shaun or my other bois, left click on them with the console opened... a id will show up, so type in the console "slm TheShowedUPIdHere" and load the desired preset
Ulfberth's Looksmenu Preset.rar
If you just want the body proportions open up your looskmenupresetnamehere.json (located in Data\F4SE\plugins\F4EE\Presets) using word pad and look for a string named '"Values" in the very bottom of the file then change them to this: "Values" : [ 0, 0.5, 1, 0.2000000029802322, 0.300000011920929 ] Like this
and the Weight triangle values are "Weight" : [ 0, 0.6120703220367432, 0.3879296481609345 ] as you can see in the image above. After changing the values just save the file and load it in Looksmenu.
Ulfberth and Longfellow had their clothing stolen on the night after hunting, so they had to come back to the sanctuary naked
Don't mind my son, he's always guarding my back.
