Ever thought that the vanilla, banana-boat-meets-Noah's-arc ship models were
unrealistic or unbefitting of the ancient seafaring Nord culture? Ever
thought it strange that the trading ships or warships of different races
are nowhere to be found in Skyrim?  This model set aims to add
original, lore-friendly ship and boat models to Skyrim, designed to
replace and add to the variety of existing ship models.
I love TES lore as well as 3D ship design and modelling, but have little experience
texturing, coding, creating mods, etc. As such, this project started
off more as personal amusement.  However, as I've amassed about eleven
different ship models for Skyrim (Nord, Breton, Imperial, Aldmeri), I'm
releasing them onto the Nexus as a modders' resource for others to use
and implement in the game if they wish.

Here're a few Breton-flavoured vessels for you to enjoy!  More of a medieval European
style, in keeping with the general Breton aesthetic.
These assets are designed to be added to the Creation Kit under the Statics category (see "how-to" section in the readme file).

- 2.1 - "Breton Caravel." A small, tubby trading vessel meant for braving the treacherous seas around Tamriel's Northern
and Western coasts.  Design inspired mostly by 15th century Portuguese
Caravel/Nao ships. I really enjoyed making this.
- 2.2 - "Breton Carrack." A larger, even tubbier vessel. Why is it in Skyrim? Trade,
surely...?  A 15th Century European carrack in the style of the great
ships of France, Spain, or England.
- 2.3 - "Breton jollyboat."  A simple rowboat, similar to the Nordic one, but with some more Bretic flourishes.

PLEASE NOTE that these meshes incorporate both sailing and docked features and cannot be used straight away!!! You will need to create a couple of quick and easy texture sets (see how-to in readme).

I'm stoked to announce that these files have been completed in aid of
adding resources to the Beyond Skyrim: Iliac Bay project, where they
will be used in High Rock and around Skyrim.  Please note though that if
you see my models used there, some textures and mesh elements are
Beyond Skyrim-only (such as flags, shields, banners etc.), and as such
are not free for use, and not included here.

The contents of this pack are designed for anybody to use for their own
not-for-profit Skyrim and SkyrimSE mods.  You may use all or any parts
of these files in mods of your own, but ONLY with my permission. You may
not use these models if you do not credit me as author, or distribute
them (redirect here, please), or use them in any way for financial gain.

Feel free to check out VOLUME 1 over here -  This is in the process of
being converted and is not quite complete as of 21/04/2017. Check in for
further updates! Or, if you're good at uv-mapping and .nif work, feel
free to write in and offer to help me out in getting them in-game ;)

Also, keep your eyes peeled for more of my work across other Beyond Skyrim provinces!
