Andromeda is so obsessed with Tamriel that over eras of time, floating in an incorporeal state above the planet, in devotion of study and worship of all things Nirn, she has developed a practice to conform her cosmic essence in the shape she believes to be tolerable enough to its populace that she can finally descend to experience its splendor up close. In Skyrim, Andromeda wields the power of the cosmos in further pursuit of fascinating wonders.
Take Andromeda along in your travels and you can share in a mutual appreciation for both Nirn and the Cosmos. The stronger you get together, the more adept Andromeda will become at wielding her astronomy upon unsuspecting foes. From shooting stars to black holes, she is nothing if not a spectacle!
Andromeda currently resides in the Sleeping Giant Inn. Begin your journey together!
There are two files you can download to play with Andromeda. The first is a stable release version, which is set as the main file. It is not nearly as ambitious as the in-work model, but it'll still be a fun spectacle. The second is a constantly updated test-build which has a lot of fun new features, but potentially a number of bugs and incomplete content. For the latter, you need to have SKSE and Skyui, but the former has no dependencies. The following is the patch notes for the Alpha builds:
Cumulative Alpha Test Build Patch Notes (currently 1.26.3)
-Andromeda now requires 1.9, skse, and SkyUI
-Added Mod Menu in Skyui used for Andromeda's uninstallation process. This menu will be expanded to a large assortment of other features in the future.
-New scripts implemented to govern Andromeda
Andromeda will gather information about enemies she is in combat with and choose spells appropriately. For example, she will use wormhole strike on distant enemies, nova if she is surrounded, or comet if the player is being attacked in melee.
-Andromeda now has her own animation path
She will float while doing out of combat moving
-Added forms. They can be alternated between using a power granted upon activation of the mod. -current spell list for each
*Aetherial Form - Offensive caster form
Shooting Star Volley
*Magne-Ge Form - Melee/tank form
*Plane form - Ranged Support
No functionality just yet
*Aurbis form - Ultimate Form
Andromeda dies after 20 seconds of using this form
-Added a summon/call spell. If Andromeda is dead, you can resurrect her with this spell, but it takes 5 minutes of real-time before you can. Otherwise, this spell will teleport her to you.
-Added new shaders
-Added new armors for Magne-Ge and Plane Forms
Andromeda is slightly bigger
Andromeda head decoration no longer physically connects to her but instead floats.
Gauntlets replaced with similar looking ornaments floating above her forearms.
Hand meshes are now claws
Reduced breast size
Increased shoulder width
reduced the glimmer overall of her golden outline
andromeda's underboob no longer shines
andromeda no longer has nipples of any kind
Gave andromeda a flat 50% damage reduction, since she wears no armor, therefore is very much lacking on survivability.
Damage of all abilities significantly reduced.
Bl3azy's "Power of the Stars" mod served as the greatest inspiration for this one. Bl3azy has not only been a good friend and advice-giver, but also lent me the use of the spells from his mod for the time-being. Please check it out; it's great work.
Thank you very kindly to Halo, best known for his pose collection mods.
Egocarib is my hero when it comes to scripts. He has patience in teaching of a saint, and this mod would be less without his wonderful advice.
Thanks a bunch to Glas, who did some texture work for me.
Haishao is a saint. She made the two custom armors for Star form and Galaxy form.
Thank you, braveheart101. You were equal parts motivator and assistant. Busy work is incredibly depressing, but you shouldered a good deal of that burden for me.
