Version 1.0
by ChiZ


This mod adds a set of armor restricted to Sten to the Chantry in Lothering. If Lothering has retired in your game, use the console intructions to obtain the set.

The purpose of this mod is to give Sten a foreign, and more exotic look, that lets him stand out as an individual from the other group members, much like Morrigan does with her unique "robe."
The armor is influenced by Turkish, Persian, and Norse designs, and in my mind fits Sten quite well.

If there are any problems with the mod, or any suggestions for changes, please let me know either through the comments, or message me through the Nexus.

I'd love to see screenshots of your Sten's in the armor, especially action shots! So remember to post your screenshots in the user images section.
P.S. - No "adult-only" content, please.

Version History

1.0 - Initial release.


Install it with DAupdater by following the steps below:

1. Unzip the .rar archive to a location you will remember.
2. Open the program daupdater.exe, which is in your Dragon Age\bin_ship folder.
3. Click "Select DAZIPs" and locate the "Sten_Armor.dazip" file or simply drag and drop the file into the dauptater window.
4. Select the dazip from the list and then press "Install Selected."
5. Launch the game and head to the Chantry in Lothering. The armor is in a chest beside the Revered Mother. If your Lothering has disappeared off the face of Ferelden, follow the instructions below to add it through the console.

Updating from an older version

To apply the update effects, it is recommended that you load a savegame from before you attained the set.

Another option is to uninstall the mod, make a forced load of your savegame, and then save again. Exit the game, install the new version, and return to find the armor again.

Alternately, you can use the console to give yourself the sets.

Follow these instructions to enable the console:
-Create yourself a new shortcut to the game, make the shortcut to the daorigins.exe file, then right click that file and open the Properties.
-In the target field, go to the very end of whats there, past the quotes, then insert “ -enabledeveloperconsole” (without the quotes). This enables the developer console.
-Run the game with that shortcut, and when in the game press the tilde (~/`) key on your keyboard to open the console.
NOTE: for some reason on my game the console is invisible! So I have to just type blindly. I don’t know what causes this or if it will do the same to you.
(-Guide written by John Vanderbeck)

In the console, type in these commands to give yourself the set:

runscript giveitem_stenarmor


To uninstall, delete the "Sten_Armor" folder from your AddIns folder.

In Windows XP it would be located in:
C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\AddIns

In Windows Vista/7:
C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\AddIns
