NifSkope is a program that is a free NIF file editor. This format is used to store three-dimensional models and is well known to the creators of modifications for The Elder Scrolls series games (Skyrim, Oblivion, Morrowind). Also this format is used in Civilization IV, Freedom Force and some other games that use Gamebryo engine. The editor is completely free, does not contain advertising and can be used for commercial purposes.

With the help of this program you can open a model file, change its geometry, adjust material parameters and add new texture. The changes made are displayed directly in the editor window, so you don't have to start the game to view them. NifSkope allows you to play animation, add or remove a model object, change the skeleton and sweep. Unfortunately, the editor is not able to create models "from scratch", but only allows you to edit those that are already in the game. However, no one prevents you to take the existing model and make it into a completely new game subject. Besides, the functionality of the program can be expanded by means of third-party plugins.

NifSkope allows you to import not only model files, but also geometry files (OBJ). Changes made by the editor will be automatically saved in the above file. After installing the editor, you can associate NIF files with it to open them in the future by double-clicking on it.

NifSkope allows creators to modify existing 3D game models without starting the game, streamlining the process of game modification.

I have NIF files I needed to open. I downloaded NifSkope for Windows and it got the job done. It was so easy to install. It lets me edit and open Nif files. I can create my own games and 3D models in it. It offers so much. Best of all it's a free download. Definitely worth it to try it out.
