PLEASE READ BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS - ESPECIALLY THE FAQ'S AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS 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 TROLLING AND BANNING 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 ******



The Mage robes in this mod are classified as "cloth" but show up as "light armors" in game. This is not a glitch. They are "light armor" so that they could have some armor rating ingame but since they are classified as "cloth," they will only respond to mage and cloth perks, not armors. So they will not get any benefits from light or heavy armor perks, but you can still wear them and get the bonuses from spells such as Stone Flesh.

All of the "Helmet" and "Hood" in this mod except one 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. The only exception to this is the Elleon Light Armor, which comes with a hood.

DO NOT DROP THESE ARMORS FROM YOUR INVENTORY - these armors' world model are incomplete and will cause issues when they are dropped. If you need to get rid of them, sell these to a merchant or store them in a chest, but don't drop them.

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.

IF YOU WANT CBBE VERSIONS OF THESE ARMORS, GO HERE: Tera Armors Collection for Skyrim - CBBE

If you have a slow or unstable internet connection and can't download the big 400+ mb file in one go without it stopping halfway. Please check the optional file section for a text file that will give you alternate mediafire download links that are split into 5 small 100 mb parts. You will need to download all 5 parts to extract them successfully but they are essentially the same exact download as the one here. Also, you still need to download and install all the hotfixes

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. Even if it's just a simple texture, mesh or compilation edit.






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 47 armors from the game TERA Online (17 heavy, 19 light and 11 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. If you download the level list optional plugin, you can find them as rare loots around the world of Skyrim while you're out adventuring

*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*


- From v 1.3 onward, all of these armors will have weight slider supports and inventory menu models
- From v 1.4 onward, all robes will have two versions: an unenchanted normal cloth versions that's easy to craft and a pre-enchanted version that's more difficult to make. The enchanted robes have unique powerful effects and names.
- From v 1.5 onward, all heavy armors will be called "hauberk" and all light armors will be called "cuirass". For example: Atroscine Hauberk and Castanic Hunter Cuirass
- From v 1.7 onward, all of these armors will have supports for male characters.
- From v 1.75 onward, all of these armors will requires perks to be craftable. All mage robes will also have armor rating, but still works with all mage perks as though they are normal cloths.

MORE ARMORS WILL COME WITH SUBSEQUENT UPDATES! I currently have over 100 TERA armor meshes total and new ones provided by talented modders pop up each week. Track this mod for future updates with more awesome armors, because there's going to be a lot more that you haven't seen.


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



-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.)
-Yes, some of the robes have an armor table upgrade recipe even though you gain nothing from it (legendary robes will still have the armor rating of 0). I'm too lazy to take them out so just pretend they don't exist
-Some of the boots and armors are not very well-fitted to the body, so you'll see them as a little "fat." The most prominent ones are Viridinium, Blade Dancer, Elseworlder and Rubicite It's not too jarring though and will be fixed in the next update... at least to the best of my ability.
-DO NOT DROP THESE ARMORS FROM YOUR INVENTORY - these armors' world model is incomplete and will cause issues when they are dropped. If you need to get rid of them, sell these to a merchant or store them in a chest, but don't drop them.




** 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: What skin, head texture, hair/face, etc. do you use to make your character look like that?

A:
For the female character, I use the custom textures of the Yaksha race - but not from the original mod. The one I use are from the Companion Ria mod - UNP version
Just extract and look for the Riabody folder inside the mod - then copy ALL the dds files and paste them into the textures/actors/characters/female folder.

Of course, you'll need the Dimonized UNP Body first so the body will look right. It's one of the requirement for this mod, so do yourself a favor and get this first

You also need Ran's custom Head mesh - version D



Install all of them in this order: UNP body > Riabody texture > Rans Headmesh > Apachii Skyhair.


As for the male character, you'll need:

Better Males - I use the Faces - YoungerFacesMergedWithMenByGeonox for the face texture and the Underwear - slip variation for the body, but whatever one will works, nude or not (I personally don't want to see man dongs every time I loot a bandit, but that's just me)

You'll also need:
A bit more Feminine Face for male - so your male character can have perfect, silky smooth skin on his face

Finally,you need BFG - Better Face Gen - get the male version in that mod.

The hairstyles for both are from ApachiiSkyHair

Install in the order given above: Better Males > Feminine Face > Better Face Gen > ApachiiSkyhair


Obviously, to get your characters to look exactly like mine will require spending your times on the slider and finding the right ENB and angle to take a picture as well. No I will not post my character's save, you will not want it as it will crash your game immediately on load. Until there is a working Face transfer program that supports mods, this will not happen.


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.
