Is it safe to erase additional files for a Skin?

I've seen that a lot of Skins come with all of the cXX files. I know most of the times you only need the model.nut and the model,nud files to make a skin work (unless you want to add them as an additional one). Is it safe for me to erase the non .nut/.nud files if Im replacing an original skin? The reason why I'm asking it's because my mod pack it's almost reaching the 2GB and I have noticed it is taking some time to load and I was wondering if maybe by me deleting these files would reduce the pack size.

Thanks!

    You have the idea right. You only need the model.nud and model.nut if you want to replace an existing skin.

    You only need the extra files for making new slots, as well as any extra folders a character may have, i.e. peach's parasol, MK's cape and mantle, Samus' gun, etc.

    So it's safe to delete them to decrease your pack size, I'm not sure if it'll reduce load times though.

    Ok, I'll try do so, I'll update this thread if I find that it reduces load times. Thanks  :)

    I can tell you that when a folder is set to be packed, it packs "everything" that's inside the specific folder. As such, even if you only need the .nud and .nut files when replacing existing color slots, this won't have much of an impact on the packed folder's file size.
