Please read before asking question, especially the FAQ at the bottom of the mod description. Thank you.

This is a non-lore friendly and skimpy armor mod. If that does not sound appealing to you, then please leave and just simply ignore this mod's existence. I do not want any unnecessary argument, trolling and banning of members here. I really do respect those people who want a lore-friendly and immersive experience in their Skyrim, but I completely detest those who shove their tastes down other people's throat.

***** IMPORTANT MESSAGES ******



For those who simply want to get the armor without having to craft them (testers and photo junkies), search for "Tera Barrel" and spawn it with the console command next to you. The barrel contains all the armor pieces in this mod.

How to do this step by step:
1) Open the Skyrim console command by pressing the tilde key "~", should be right next to your "1" key
2) Type in help "Tera barrel" 0 and then hit enter
3) The game will then give you a numerical code that correspond to the barrel, it might be something like 12584A5, the code will be different from person to person
4) Take note of that code and then type in player.placeatme XXXXXXXX and hit enter. Replace the XXXXXXX with the code that you just got
5) Close the console command by hitting the tilde key again. The barrel should spawn exactly where you stand.


All of the "Helmet" and "Hood" in this mod except for a handful are supposed to be invisible. You will not see anything show up when you equip these head gears. They are only there so you can get the armor bonus from perks.

I will NOT convert these armors to any other body (LB, UNBP, ADEC, etc.), so please do not ask. I am not interested in any other body variations beside UNP, and so I will not listen or respond to any request of such nature.

CBBE and 7base version of this mod can be found on the Nexus. Simply search for "Tera" and you'll find them easily

You MUST update your Skyrim to at least version 1.8 in order for these armors to show up in your game. There's no other way around it.

Please PM me for permission if you want to use any of this mod's assets for your own release. The only exceptions to this are when your release is simply a retexture or small mesh edit of the mod.






BACKGROUNDS

(skip if you're not interested)

As many of you may have already noticed, I am the second author of the popular TERA armor mod for UNP and UNBP body here on the Nexus. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's this mod

Silver0236, the original author of that mod was able to get permission from TERA's publisher to use their 3D models for Skyrim. You can read all about it over there since I'm not going to repeat it here. Basically, I believe this is safe and should not infringe any copyrights.

The original intent was that I would partner up with Silver0236 and work in conjunction with him to release TERA armors for both bodies (UNP and UNBP) simultaneously. However, I was a faster worker and was able to made much more armors than he could keep up. I posted a couple of teaser pictures on that mods for my almost-finished armors and many people wanted me to just release them instead of waiting for the UNBP conversion.

I decided to give in and now I'm releasing my TERA armor conversions as my own mod. I did not have a fall out with Silver0236 or anything. All of my meshes and textures released for this mod are still available for him and anyone to use. I simply want better control over my mods and I feel that releasing a bunch of armors for one body and not the other on the old mod page will confuse a lot of people, especially since I have no ability to upload images for the author's section of the mod for some reason...



WHAT THIS MOD CONTAINS



This mod will give you 64 armors from the game TERA Online (23 heavy, 28 light and 13 robes), converted for use in Skyrim with the UNP female body and the vanilla male body, all with balanced stats and smithing recipes. Some armors are on the weaker end while some are intended for end-game characters. Some higher level armors require appropriate smithing perks to be craftable, while some are available for you from the start

All of these armors come with four pieces each: body, gloves, boots and an invisible helmet. Yes, the helmets and hood are purely for the bonus armor rating from perks and are supposed to be invisible, so please do not ask questions about them in the comment section.

These armors can be found spread out across different vanilla smithing categories based on their stats. The robes can all be found in the MISC section. Some higher tier robes will require some light armor smithing perks to be craftable. All mage robes also come with a pre-enchanted version that can be crafted if you have the Arcane smithing perk.

The list of armors is as followed, ordered from weakest to strongest. The final "Eternal" armor sets for each respective category are the "ultimate" armors that can only be crafted when you complete the entire smithing perk tree.(check the image sections for previews of all the armors for both genders)

None at the moment




*These are not all of the armors planned for this mod, more armors will be added to the WIP section as the mod progresses, but currently, these are the ones that I have on my plate*



REQUIREMENTS



UNP Body


RECOMMENDED MOD



I recommend the following mods for a full experience:

Tera Weapon Collection by Iromizu. Iromizu was the generous modder who provided me with many of these Tera meshes and now he has outdone himself with this weapon mod. You got the Armor, why not get the weapon as well for a complete look? His mod is also very balanced and go perfectly with this mod. Do yourself a favor and get this.




KNOWN BUGS



- Currently, you cannot craft the enchanted version of the Nightwinder robe since it required the enchanted version to craft the enchanted version. So it's practically useless. If you want the robe with the enchantment, just get it from the console command. It should be the second "nightwinder robe" if you search for it
-Possible clippings can occur (this is inevitable)
-Some armors are not weighted very well (the White Mage Robe and Nightwinder Robe look kind of strange from the back while your character is moving - nothing too jarring though, judge for yourself.)


** Please report any additional bugs if you find them in the comment section (images attached with the reports are preferred).

**FAQ FAQ FAQ FAQ FAQ FAQ**


All your questions answered here - READ THESE BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS IN THE COMMENT PLEASE - YOUR QUESTION MAY HAVE ALREADY BEEN ANSWERED!!

Q: Is there a CBBE version of these armors?
Please make CBBE versions.
Can you please create CBBE versions for these as well?
I only use CBBE, can you please make these armors for them?
CBBE! or no download
etc. etc.


A: Read the Important messages section on top of the mod. It has a link to a CBBE version of this mod.


Q: How do you even install this mod?/ i installed the mod but when I wear the armors, my character's body disappeared?

A: There are two ways that you can install the mod: using NMM and manual install. I'll go over both

NMM install require that you first download and install Nexus mod manager (you can find it on the Nexus itself). After you installed the program, go to this mod page and look at the "files" tab. You'll see that there are two parts to this mod's main files. There should be a green "button" on each part that say "Download with NMM", click on that for both and the NMM program should launch and begin downloading the files.

Once it finished downloading. Go to the "plugin" tab on the NMM program and you should see the two parts of this mod there. Click on part 1 and then click on the isntall option on the NMM, let it install completely. Then, here's the important part, click on part 2 of the mod and install it, when asked if you would like to "update" the mod, pick "NO" and then continue install the mod


Manual install require you do download both parts manually. They will comes in .rar formats, so you will need winrar to extract both. When extracted, you're interested in the "meshes" and "textures" folders as well as the "TERAarmors".esm and .esp files. Go into your Skyrim directory (should be Steam/steamapp/skyrim/data" then move the newly extracted meshes, textures and esm, esp files from the two parts into the data folder, if any prompts came up, select yes to replace all. Then launch Skyrim once with the Skyrim launcher so the game will recognize and activate the mod.


Q: I can't make my followers wear the mage robes because they have 0 armor rating, can you please make them armors instead or at least add some armor to them?

A: I cannot make the mage robes have armor rating because I have classified them as "Cloth" in the CK. When an item is classified as such, no matter what armor rating value you put in will become 0 in the actual game. Also, I will not make them into armors because they are designed for mage players, whose perks depends on them having no armor.

It is recommended that you download the UFO - Ultimate follower overhaul mod since it has a "you could dress better" command that allows you to remove the follower's default outfit, so you can just remove that and give them a mage robe from this mod and they will wear it.


Q: How do you make your character's skin so shiny and "wet" - Glosstech can only make it look metallic instead of... you know... wet.

A: To make the character skin to look like my character in the screen shots, you need:

1) someting to make the skin shiny (edit the femalebody_s.dds, femalehead.dds, and femalehand.dds files in textures/actors/characters/female - just increase the brightness by about 20)
OR search for glosstech - however both of these will make the skin looks "metallic" and not "wet" - so you'll need....
2) an ENB file - ANY ENB would do but you need to go to:
[ENVIRONMENT] section in enbseries.ini and find these lines and change them accordingly
(these are the settings I use - the higher the number the more "wet" it will look - just play around with the numbers and see what works for you. You can see the effects better indoor right next to a light source)

SpecularAmountMultiplierDay=5.0
SpecularAmountMultiplierNight=5.0
SpecularAmountMultiplierInterior=5.0
SpecularPowerMultiplierDay=6.0
SpecularPowerMultiplierNight=6.0
SpecularPowerMultiplierInterior=6.0
(KEEP THESE TWO AT 0)
SpecularFromLightDay=0.0
SpecularFromLightNight=0.0



Also, for those who are curious I am using Project ENB - Realistic Setting.

Q: Are you planning on doing a CBBE/UNPB/LB/ADEC/ *insert body here* version?

A: No and... really no. I am only interested in the UNP body at the moment. The CBBE body has enough people working on armors for it. The LB body is too new and .. not really to my taste. As for the other bodies... not really my things.. sorry. However, you can freely convert this to any body you wish w/o needing my permission. Just remember the credit and we're good

Q: Will you be adding BBP support?
A: No, I don't think so. BBP never really interest me much because I generally see my character from the back, not the front. I didn't bother with BBP back in Oblivion, so it won't be any different here. However, if any of you want to add BBP support to my armors and release it as your own mod - go right ahead, just remember the credits and we'll be fine.

Q: Do you take request?
A: Depends really. Some armors does not really interest me, and some are just really painful to work with. Many of you who have no experience with this kind of works probably have no idea, but seriously, it's not exactly that exciting. If you have requests - post it in the comment section, but just know that I'll probably not get to it anytime soon.

Q: I have found a bug that involves this this and that
A: If you find a bug - post it in the comment section. If the bug involves weird behaviors with the armor meshes or texture - please post a picture with a title that said :ERROR - so that I can see it clearly and hopefully fix that in the next update.

Q: Why won't you respond to my PM? I reported a bug a couple of days ago, at least reply so that I know you'll look into it!
A: Look, many people report bugs on my mods in both the comment section and PM. I cannot answer every single one of them. If the bug is small, I usually ignore it. If it's a major bug, then I'll fix it in the next update and mention your name in either a comment or the change log, crediting you for your help. I do not bother with forum message unless it is absolutely necessary, so please understand and don't be angry when I do not reply to your message. Know that I read EVERY SINGLE bug report and comments that you guys posted and took many of them to heart when I'm updating the mods. If I don't reply, just assume that I'm busy taking your bug report to heart and working my butts off to fix that issue. If it's a cultural thing that demands me to reply to your comments in forum and I don't understand it, then I'm sorry.
