    So... exactly one year and one week after I picked up the rig I've been using since Nov '17, my video card fried. No surprise there, eh? It's under warranty, but I figured I'd just stick a newer one in... nope. Then I got hit with Win10 1803 and 1809. Every personal file... every single one vanished. I used shadow copy extracting software, but the entire shadow copy was corrupted. I didn't know this until I had extracted it all to my back up external, overwriting many of the original backups that worked. So I essentially lost a year of work on updating Bob's, along with a ton of commercial content. Around 158 items altogether.

    So I decided to do a reset... fancy that... the rig wasn't originally a Win10. It was a Win7, upgraded and repackaged to Win10. The reset bricked the computer with the infinite restart loop.

    I'll be on my phone until I can eBay off my personal possessions to get a computer that isn't a lie. Warranty or not, the only upgrade that computer is getting is 54 slugs from my attorney, Mr. Mossberg. It's a shame a lawsuit against M$ would never come to fruition.

    DSR COMPATIBILITY PATCH by Clevon

    If you want to port my content to Kingdom Come: Deliverance, please feel free to do so. Permission is granted, so no need to ask.
    I cannot afford the game at this time due to ongoing health issues which are preventing me from working, so I can't port it myself.

    For anyone in the middle East, can you please take a quick look at this video and see if the inscription at 6:20 makes sense to you?
    I believe it says Saka and may be a maker's name.

    FOR THE RECORD. I DO NOT HAVE ASSETS MADE BY OTHERS IN MY MODS, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE DAMNED PERMISSIONS KEEP SAYING. I MAKE MY OWN CONTENT, AND HAVE CHANGED THAT SETTING SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE YEARS, BECAUSE IT KEEPS GOING BACK TO LYING ABOUT ME USING OTHER FOLKS' WORK.

    Been offline for several months. Just got back on a few nights ago. I have a ton of messages to go through.
    I am currently upgrading from my abacus that I had wired to a Lite-Brite to an Enigma wired to a Rexophone. It has Windows 10, which is nothing more than one big phone app commercial.... then I come back on here to find that the site is also one big phone app. I'm on a PC for a reason. I am not a console kiddie and I don't waste my day spamming texts on a phone. But it seems everyone is hell bent on making me feel like I do. >:|

    Update 1m BETA is up.
    Haha I removed all of the older updates so it looks like a 6 year old beta now. :D
    I'll be adding images slowly. Click the left image arrow to see the new stuff.
    There is no update 1l due to the lower case l looking like | or l or I.

    There are many new fantasy weapons, including more bows.
    I added in cheese slices so that 1 and 3 bits of cheese glue can also be made.
    The new hats and helmets still aren't done. My hat scene went belly up and I managed to end up with nothing in it rigged anymore. Gotta skin them all over again.
    Also made a bunch more cube maps and variants of my existing cubemaps for more metallic variety.

    I left the bronze weapons in the mesh and texture folders. They are all denoted by the names damg`. They are not in game in this version, but will be in the next update.
    I originally created them for a team doing a Greek themed mod, but I fear they fizzled out, since I haven't heard from them in some time. There are bronze axes, maces, swords, bows and spears hidden in the meshes and textures folders.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that the correctly colored, historically accurate version of the bork will be in the next update. I totally forgot to put it into the previous update.

    Health crap.
    My left arm is shut down due to the nerve damage so all is going hella slow. I'm about as slow now as all my former employers, which is terribly demoralizing.
    Bean counters at disability just keep perpetuating their lies. First they claimed I hadn't worked enough to receive disability, even though I'm 51 and have paid into it since I was 15. Then they sent me to one of their quack doctors who was able, through means of magical divination, to determine that 3 specialists were wrong and I didn't have carpal tunnel... without ever examining me. He then went on to say, before any examination, that there was no way I had rheumatoid arthritis because men can't get it. Only women can get it. I informed SSI that he is a malpractice lawsuit waiting to happen. They sent me more paperwork to fill out. Oh yay, just what I need. f*** government.

    If you ever do get a new computer, I have a request/suggestion. It would be really great if this mod had an MCM menu where we could choose what weapons and armour we want toshow up in our game, since there are certain other mods out there that add the same items-Pirates of Skyrim, for instance, adds some of your armours, your rapier, and your maingauche. If there was an MCM menu for this mod, it would be so much more convenient. All the best to you.

      Sadly that won't happen. MCM requires SKSE, which I do not use, and would never make a mod which is dependent on it.

      Oh, I see. May I ask why you don't use SKSE? As far as I can see there is legitimately no reason not to.

      Because I used MWSE back in the day and it was a broken nightmare. Ever since then I've avoided any script extender for TES games. Over the past 7 years around 200 of the people I've helped have had issues with it. And someone whose mod I used to use failed to mention on one of their updates that they changed to SKSE dependency. My game is still broken from that update even though I wiped their mod and everything that went with it. So I get to rebuild a game that's running 246 mods along with 176 merged mods. Yay.

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I've been using this mod for 3 years now and it is one of the best armory mods that I've enjoyed in Skyrim
    I'm sorry for all that happened to you, I hope you are doing better by now
    Your work brought me unlimited hours of fun as I leave and return to Skyrim all over again
    For all the entertainment I had and still have with this mod, and all your hard work THANK YOU SIR ^^

    Hey sorry to hear about your rig getting screwed.  If its any help saved my old hard drive from way way back when and might still have some models you sent me from your old bobs morrowind.  I'll dig around and see if I can slave the drive to my rig and see if I can pull them out to send some back to you.  I think they were the Rus helmets and the norman conical you had named "pointy helmet".

      Sweet! I think one of the versions for morrowind is here on nexus. Someone on reddit had it and I asked him to upload it. I think it's 1, not 2 or elvenwear.

      I found a folder on a very old external that said 'video rescue'. It has half a dozen CDs worth of morrowind content, so it may have all of them. I just need to go through them lol.

      Got the letter for the last interview with SSI, so that should be wrapped up soon. lawyers are optimistic. I'm not.

      There is a link to the nif optimizer for SE. You will need to run that on the meshes. It doesn't take long.
      I just installed the esp as is and haven't had any issues at all. But you can save it through the beth.net CS if you want. I had someone save it for me through that early on and all it did was crash over and over. So I used this esp and it worked perfectly.

      There are still a few of my normal maps that I made smaller and saved as ARGB8X32. These might cause issues in Riften. Something to do with Bethesda's port of the game through the updated engine. It started with their first big patch for Fallout 4. Yep, another patch introduced bug. And of course it carried over to SSE.
      My uncompressed eye normal map fix causes it to crash in Riften too, so I made an SSE version.

      In the main description there is a link to nif optimizer. That needs to be run on the meshes. The mod works in SSE as it is. It's just the meshes that need updated.

      I cannot upload an SSE version because I cannot use the SSE construction set that is on Bethesda.net due to being locked out of the site since I am stuck n a Vista computer again.

    Dear Mr. Dave,
    Thank you ever so much for a great job done! I hope some day you'll create more oriental armor and clothes - it is awesome! I wish there were color variants for turban and other beautiful things, but I will not dare to ask, I understand you have a lot of things to do...

      I had a fairly big handful of other items made, but Micro$oft and their damned updates 1803 and 1809 bricked and obliterated my new rig. I used recovery software to save everything on it, but every single file was corrupted in the shadow copy after the updates had deleted it. So I've been trying to salvage out and rebuild items from my last backup in October last year

      Turban colors are actually easy. You can open the turban texture in Photoshop and change it, then save it right back out.
      Download Photoshop CS2 for free from Adobe.
      Download the DDS tools from nVidia and install them. for Photoshop.
      Open or drag and drop the turban texture and hit the following in Photoshop.
      Image-> adjustments-> variations at the bottom of the rollout.
      Click around on the various shades until you have the color you want.
      Save as DDS as DXT1RGB with Mipmaps set to all by default.

      If you are wanting to do a shemag pattern on it, you can copy and paste CTRL A, CTRL C, CTRL V, another image onto the turban pattern and change the blending mode found in the right tool column where it says Layer, the dropdown that says Normal, to soft light, or overlay, or lighten, darken or color. Which ever makes it look "believable".

      I'm pretty much stuck on a phone right now. :( Back to using my abacus wired to a Lite-Brite.

      Dear Mr. Dave,
      Sorry to hear about the rig. I hope you'll overcome the hardships soon.
      Thank you for so detailed explanation about the turbans! Now I'll try to create an interesting wardrobe for my Rayya, a skilled warrior, but a modest lady representing unique Redguard culture. Your weapons and armor are inspiring me greatly to do it!

    Can you add this for special edition please? I'm not a modder so I can't re texture, but for you should be easy to re upload this for special edition as well right? XD

    I do have to say that and I have a ton of weapons mods, that compared to all of them including Jsus I find the B armoury to be the best and most usefull for most of the characters I play as really one of the most essential weapons Mods for me, already endorsed but would do it again thank you for the work you put in it is really outstanding
