Anybody know how to use the creation kit to change the height and weight of NPCs?
I made a mod that makes some alterations to Vilkas and Farkas. Most of the edits show up in game, like different default armor and hair, but the alterations I made to their heights and weights aren't working for some reason.

I am wondering if there might be a "hidden" step, like pushing ctrl + f4 to get npc face changes to work?

Theoretically, it should work.
But you can always do it in-game via setweight and setscale commands.

I am trying to do it with the CK because when I did it with the command console they would constantly reset and I got tired of having to continually readjust.

Create a script that changes it whenever it resets.

Okay. I'll do a google search to find out what that means. XD
Thanks for the advice.

If you have changed Aela and saved the changes, you should select her entry in the CK (the line turns blue) and press CTRL-F4 and follow the dialogues. With this you save your changes to an NPC. Otherwise all changes will be lost. After that you can create an archive file (.bsa) from the DDS file(s) found in the Data/Textures/Actors/Character/FaceGenData/FaceTint/ folder. Be sure to name the archive file the same as the ESP file (plugin) and put the .bsa in the Data folder. You don't have to do this if you are not uploading to Steam.
