----------------
Possible issue if you are using Skyrim HD - 2K Textures (more precisely the "Skyrim HD v1_5 LITE - Misc" module)

The hi-res environment texture from this mod DIDNT work on the Eisen armor at all for some reason!
I had to delete textures/cubemaps/chitin_e_ebony.dds (the environment texture) to make the armor shine.

If you want higher res then the vanilla one,
You can also overwrite it with this mod HD Better Reflections For Armor and Weapons (download the optional purple fix too)
----------------
Please leave feedback and make suggestion at will !

Everything should be working as intended as of v2.1 and I will start working on my next companion (Jenassa).
==================
My other companion overhaul:
Unique Faendal
==================
!! REQUIRED !!
ApachiiSkyHair. Make sure to download, install and endorse it!

You have 8 .ESP to choose from (ONLY USE ONE):

UniqueLydia.esp
==================
Basic Version:

- Default outfit have 0 Armor Rating so you can easily make her equip all you want. A version with armor rating have been added to her inventory so make sure she equip it for combat (she should).
- New facegen based off Malena from Natural Characters and Companions, tweaked it a little.
- New hair from ApachiiSkyHair (REQUIRED: Download It!)
- New perk: LightFoot (she won't activate trap), Magic Resistance 30 (more resistant to magic), Fighting Stance (power attack cost less stamina).
- Level cap raised to 81.
- Proper gender animation.
- Younger and less annoying voice.

UniqueLydiaArmorNoOutfit.esp
==================
Same as UniqueLydia.esp but with NO OUTFIT:

This is mainly for Tradable Companion Gear compatibility.

UniqueLydiaArmor.esp
==================
Same as UniqueLydia.esp with whiterun themed armor:

- Default outfit is the Eisen Armor with the Steel re-texture (with yellowish leather), a yellow Sage Cloak and a custom whiterun heater shield based off The Witcher 2 shield pack mod.
Take notice:
Her default outfit have 0 Armor Rating so you can easily make her equip all you want but she will ALWAYS wear the cloak so if you don't want the cloak just use UniqueLydiaArmorNoCloak.esp.
A version of her armor with armor rating have been added to her inventory so make sure she equip it for combat (she should).

There's also an optional red variant if you prefer it over yellow.

UniqueLydiaArmorNoCloak.esp
==================
Same as UniqueLydiaArmor.esp but without the cloak:

The cloak is pretty cool but it also clip a lot and doesn't really fit the CBBE body.
Take this .esp if you don't want the cloak.

The "SF" version
==================

Use the SF .esp version if you want the Specialized Followers perk!!!!!!

Other mods used in screenshots AND RECOMMENDED:
==================
Natural Eyes
XCE with the Clean Skin optional.
