DG version = V4, just in case someone is wondering.
I missed the version slot and apparently it cannot be changed afterwards..
I hope people who have downloaded this mod are regularly checking for updates.

IMPORTANT! BEFORE INSTALLING V. 4, YOU MUST DO CLEAN SAVE, OTHERWISE ITS YOUR FAULT THAT YOUR SAVE BECOMES CORRUPTED.
I AM NOT GOING TO FIX PROBLEMS YOU CAUSED BY SKIPPING THESE NOTES.
You can do this by doing the following:
1. Go into safe location (no enemies and such)
2. place items added by this mod into container
3. Save & exit game
4. Disable old .esp, remove files. (this is easy if you used nmm)
5. Load save, save game and exit.
6. install new version
7. Go enjoy your new gear, however, upgrading requirements are higher now and you can't enchant the hat.

REMOVING V. 4
Before removing v.4 of my mod, you have to remove certain perk from your character.
What perk?
- Perk which was added by this mod, duh.
Open console by pressing ยง button. (or whatever button opens it on your pc)
type:
help nightfall
Search for "Nightfall Guardian"
Check the ID number/code next to it.
(it should be xx008d3d)
type in console:
player.removeperk xx008d3d (Remember to check that the id is correct when you type it in console)
And then you can freely uninstall my mod.
Remember to unequip gear, otherwise you will be stuck forever with the enchantments you've put on your armor.

1.
This mod adds vampire hunter themed armor sets and weapons in game.
At the moment it adds:
light and heavy set + additional cuirass for males
Two crossbows
Bow
Sword + unique variant
Arrow + bolt type
This mod is built by combining some vanilla assets and pieces from other mods + with retexturing

I suggest you backup your save JUST IN CASE EVERYTHING GOES HAYWIRE, YOUR PC BURSTS INTO FLAMES, AND FALMER EATS YOUR CHARRED BODY.


2.
How do I get these items?
You can craft them at the forge, under "misc" items.
Arrows and bolts are also craftable
Upgrading is more effective if you have Advanced Armors Smithing perk, because the armor rating is pretty high, and I wanted to balance the armor set a bit.
Unique sword is "hidden", and you have to find it. (You will probably find it when walking through areas added by dawnguard, its not that well hidden.)

Hints for armor set:
Clue 1. Look for ex-vampire hunter
Clue 2. SPOILER: Read book Immortal Blood
Total Spoiler:SPOILER: You can find it at Morvath's Lair, right next to his throne, on a mannequin

Hints for the sword; contains minor spoiler for dawnguard
Clue 1. Most beautiful area added by Dawnguard expansion
Clue 2. SPOILER: Your trusted friend told you about this place.
Clue 3. SPOILER: Clue 2. didn't make sense? Maybe you should ask your thrall about that
4. SPOILER: Moths, moths everywhere.

3.
Future Plans:
I've done pretty much everything I was planning when I started to work on this mod.
Probably some fixes/updates are coming out later, and other crazy stuff once I get cool ideas.

4.
IMPORTANT!
ALWAYS WHEN I DO BIGGER UPDATES, YOU SHOULD DO CLEAN SAVE. THIS CAN BE DONE BY FOLLOWING THESE STEPS:
1. Remove armor pieces from your inventory, most important, unequip them, otherwise enchantments you have put on them will be permanently on you. This is vanilla bug, so don't cry to me about fixing it.
2. Save
3. Exit
4. Remove all the files of previous mod. (Easy to do if you are using NMM installation)
5. Download new files, activate esp, enjoy your game.

I made the "Heavy" and "Light" variant so that you can easily change the look of light and heavy variant.
Navigate to: Steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/data/meshes/shadowjin/vampirehunter OR vampirehunterheavy
copy all the meshes
Go to the other folder (For example, first go to vampirehunter, copy everything, then go to "vampirehunterheavy")
Paste over
If you want to just change the female version, just take female meshes.
(Hint, there is "female" in every name which belongs to female version)
If you weren't successful, report in comments section so I can clarify my instructions.

5.
Bugs/clipping:
1. English is not my native language, so there is probably spelling errors in my description, gonna fix them later.
2. Light female armor is weird with other gloves than the ones added by my mod. I could probably fix this but for now it is buggy.
4. I know I forgot something.
5. I skipped 3.

6.
INCOMPATIBILITIES!
Weird things might happen if you are using mods which change movarth's lair.
Though I am not 100% sure if it causes any problems..
I haven't ever seen mod which changes the movarth's lair.

2. Don't be douchebag
3. Give me tips and ideas

Big thanks to Shadowmann who helped me in the beginning of my mod, his tips were really necessary!

Donation:
Liked the mod? Want to support me?
I don't want REAL money for my work. I usually make stuff for myself, and it then grows to a real mod after a while, and my mods aren't "professional" quality, but someone might still greatly enjoy my mods, and want to support me.
I've been thinking, donating Guild Wars 2 money sounds like good way to express your feelings.
My In-game-nick is "Archiemonde", (ID: Archie.2375), and there's no minimum size for the donations. Also, I am funny guy and my guild is always looking for great people, so give me a PM in-game if you are looking for guild!
