How do you...

I know you can weld pieces together in Nifscope, but how?

I didn't get an answer to this before; maybe no one noticed. I still need to know how to make two mesh pieces one.

I got no idea...didn't even know you could break out the arc welder and weld stuff together in Nifskope.

I never knew this was possible either.  I thought the easiest would be to just paste all of the pieces under a single branch, then you can copy and paste that branch.
I do all my welding in Blender with the join objects function Ctrl+J

That's probably it; I think you gave the answer last time I asked, I just can't find the post.

Yeah, I usually just stick them on the same branch. They won't go anywhere without one another.
Is there a difference? Would they do different things? Do you get to readjust mapping that way? I'm so curious.

What I want to do is put some inflated pig's bladders* on Male Jester's staff. I can't hook them to his hand because they don't stay on the staff that way.

Disgusting.
But yeah, you can even toss the one trishape onto the other trishape. I've done it before and it didn't seem to cause problems, but I dunno if I just lucked out or what.

It is disgusting, but it is tradition... although I wouldn't be surprised if sometime in the last few years a couple of rubber balloons had been substituted.

I'm apparently dong something wrong because they keep moving slightly off placement.

Hmmm, I dunno. If they don't have that skin instance info, I was under the impression they mostly go where you want them... Although I have had trouble with Ren's pieces in the past.
Sorry, I'm not knowledgeable enough to know what to tell you. Unless you wanted to send a copy to play with, but generally you are somebody that I turn to for help, ha ha.

I could take a look at things for you, but it wouldn't be until the weekend at the earliest.

But on the plus side, I have started the other project.  :D
