This patch aims to fix a few bugs caused by the popular mod “Cloaks of Skyrim” made by Noodles, while using another popular and must have mod “Unofficial Skyrim Patch” made by the Unofficial Patch Project Team. The patch also adds one additional linen cloak to the collection.


  • Briar Heart body fix
  • Wild edits reversed
  • Some other minor fixes
  • A new Daedric linen cloak!

Because the Cloaks of Skyrim (CoS) hasn't been updated since March 2013, it isn't compatible with the Unofficial Skyrim Patch (USKP) any more. Which is sad, I personally can't imagine playing without one of those two mods. That's why I made myself a fix for CoS. I shared it in the comment section of CoS and then I got the question if I could upload it to the Nexus itself. So, here I am... The fix is here! If you play with both CoS and USKP without this fix, you'll probably find Briar Hearts with the wrong body and naked or even without torso at all! My little patch does fix the body problem and a bunch of other minor changes made by the more recent updated USKP. It makes CoS fully compatible with the most recent USKP once again.

This patch adds one additional Daedric linen cloak to the collection. I was messing around with CoS and made a new cloak with the Daedric character ‘O’ on it. I think it turned out well. The cloak is craft-able at the spinning wheel with one black linen cloak and a Daedra heart. I have also placed an enchanted version of the cloak somewhere for you to find. It grants you the power of muffling, good luck finding it! :)


Prerequisite: It should be obvious that you'll need both the Unofficial Skyrim Patch and Cloaks of Skyrim before installing this fix.

If you installed version 1.0 of the patch, please un-install it first before installing the new 1.1 update! Un-installing the old version is 100% harmless for your savegame.



Since I made the 1.1 version of the patch, I see several comments about that the installer does install the vanilla version instead one of the other versions. However, the installer works just fine I can assure you. The installer does rename the alternate version. For example, the file “Cloaks - USKP Patch - Dawnguard.esp” will be renamed to “Cloaks - USKP Patch.esp” by the installer to match the name of the BSA I included. I didn't know that this would lead to confusion for people. I'm sorry about that. I better would have the installer rename the BSA instead of the ESPs. The renaming is necessary because the names of the ESP and BSA files have to match to work correctly. I can't just simply choose which BSA an ESP uses in Creation Kit or something like that. I wish it worked like that. ;) Anyway, I tried the installer multiple times in both NMM Mod Manager and Mod Organizer to be sure and it installs fine everytime with each option. If you're still not sure if the installer did it's work correctly, you could always load the esp up in TES5Edit and see for yourself. Look at the header and you'll know enough.

  • Recommended: Install with a mod manager like the Nexus Mod Manager or even better: Mod Organizer (Recommended but not required)
  • Manual installation: Copy the BSA from the “/00 - BSA” folder of the mod to your Skyrim installation directory and ONE of the esp files in the 01, 02 and 03 folders. Don't copy multiple of them, you just need one. Rename the esp to “Cloaks - USKP Patch.esp” if it's one of the other files like “Cloaks - USKP Patch – Dawnguard.esp” for example

Choose only one of the main files to install. If you own Dawnguard, you don't need to have the non-Dawnguard version of the patch installed. Be sure that the patch loads after cloaks.esp in your loadorder!


  • Recommended: Uninstall from a mod manager like Nexus Mod Manager or Mod Organizer
  • Manual un-installation: Remove “Cloaks - USKP Patch.esp” and “Cloaks - USKP Patch.bsa” from your /data folder

The patch doesn't contain any scripts, so it's safe to install and uninstall.

Change Log:

  • Added the “No Imperial” and “Player Only” compatible versions. It was a bit silly that I didn't look at those versions of Cloaks of Skyrim before
  • The patch now has a NMM/Mod Organizer all-in-one installer! This makes manual installing a bit different, but it's still not recommended ofcourse
  • One little minor tweak

Known Issues:

There are no known issues with other mods (yet).

Don't try to edit my patch with the Creation Kit. It'll simply f*ck things up!

Thanks To:

  • The Unofficial Patch Project Team for making the Unofficial Skyrim and DLC patches. Without those patches, everyone would suffer from stupid vanilla bugs all the time.
  • Noodles for making the Cloaks of Skyrim mod. Awesome mod, it should have been in vanilla!
