I. Description

This mod came to be because I wanted to use both 'Greatsword sheaths and scabbards' and 'Skyrim Weapon De-LARP-ification Project'. Two mods that, unfortunately, couldn't be used together as they conflicted. Instead of waiting around for an unlikely compatibility patch, I decided to "get my hands dirty" and thus Greatsword Sheaths and Scabbards Redux was born.

Greatsword Sheaths and Scabbards Redux adds sheaths and scabbards to all the greatswords in Skyrim (DLC included) and makes their blades thinner (from 'Skyrim Weapon De-LARP-ification Project'). If you prefer, you can use vanilla weapon meshes. Just choose so in the NMM installer. You can now also choose between short sheaths and full-size scabbards.

Supports Dawnguard and Dragonborn DLCs.

The original 'Greatsword sheaths and scabbards' mod is not required.
If you are using 'Skyrim Weapon De-LARP-ification Project' make sure to install my mod after it.

II. Installation

Use NMM, or...

  • Choose between short sheaths with custom textures ('default' folders), short sheaths with a shared basic texture ('basic' folders) or full-size scabbards ('fullsize' folders) and extract/copy any subfolder(s) to your 'SkyrimData' directory.
  • Choose between default thinner meshes from the 'De-LARP-ification Project' (01, 02 and 03 folders) or vanilla meshes ('Vanilla' folders) and extract/copy any subfolder(s) to your 'SkyrimData' directory.
  • If you are using CaBaL120's "Book of Silence" copy the 'meshes' subfolder from '04 Skyforge Steel', '04 Skyforge Steel Fullsize' or '04 Skyforge Steel Vanilla' (see above) to your 'SkyrimData' directory.

If you are already using DoubleBrewski's 'Greatsword sheaths and scabbards' mod or MadCat221's 'Skyrim Weapon De-LARP-ification Project' it will ask to overwrite some files. You can safely do it.

IV. Conflicts

It's not compatible with any mod that also changes the greatswords' meshes.

It is however, perfectly compatible with any weapon re-texture mod.
