If you are a fan of Fallout 4 and want to customize your character's appearance with different clothing options, you might be interested in using CBBE BodySlide.

If you want to use these outfits with CBBE BodySlide, you will need to convert them first. This process involves using another tool called Outfit Studio, which is included in the BodySlide download.
In this article, we will show you how to convert vanilla outfits for CBBE BodySlide in Fallout 4, using some examples from the Nexus Mods website. We will also explain how to install and use the converted outfits in your game.
What are vanilla outfits?
Vanilla outfits are the clothing items that come with the base game of Fallout 4, as well as the official DLCs. They are designed for the vanilla body type, which is the default body shape and texture that Bethesda created for the game. Vanilla outfits include things like vault suits, military uniforms, dresses, suits, and more.
Vanilla outfits have some advantages and disadvantages compared to CBBE BodySlide outfits. On one hand, they are lore-friendly, meaning they fit the style and theme of the game world. They also do not require any additional mods or tools to use. On the other hand, they are less customizable, meaning you cannot change their shape or fit to your liking. They also may look less realistic or appealing than CBBE BodySlide outfits, depending on your preference.
