Hello Dovahkiins :D

A long time ago the Dwemer invented the automatons, fearless machines protecting the dwemer cities, but they constructed one machine different from the automatons, a machine which requires a humanoid to work. They created Hyperion! The Hyperion exoskeleton grants the wearer more speed and strength.



From version 4.0 this mod requires The Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE)
SKSE Download:


The Quest: Lost Technology

You can start the Quest by reading the Hyperion History in the Dwemer Museum in Markarth, to finish it you must have access to the Blackreach. The new dungeon is hard so be prepared, but the bonus content might help.
Tip: To enter a "special" part of my dungeon alive use the Become Ethereal shout, or equip your exoskeleton and have faith ;)


What’s inside:

-Hyperion exoskeleton (Light & Heavy)
-Hyperion Master exoskeleton (Light & Heavy)
-11 Mountable Weapons (Magical, One & Two Handed)
-The Lost Technology Quest
-New Dungeon with Skyrim records and Easter eggs :D
-Hyperion Regulator
-Bonus: Steam spell
-Bonus: Centuria Generator (Staff conjuring Centurions)
-Increased Jumps

The exoskeleton can be worn together with other armors or clothes. The exoskeleton raises the speed of the wearer, increases his carry weight and his stamina, but lowers his magic resistance and sneak ability. It's built from different dwemer artifacts and uses steam special effects. The exoskeleton is improvable and smithable under the dwarven section. The Hyperion Master increases the weapon skills as well, but decreases health. The increased heat of the overheated version causes 1 point damage to health when running and 5 points when sprinting.
After smithing the Dwemer Hyperion Regulator you can adjust the equipped Hyperion exoskeleton by clicking on the regulator. The regulator allows you to set up the exoskeletons, you can change the strength of the enchantments and the jump boost with six presets, you can change the weight, turn on and off the sound and visual effects. It allows you to set the smithing option for the mountable weapon to one or two handed versions. To smith the weapons you need to have the Mountable Weapons book in your inventory.

This mod uses vanilla textures, so every mod replacing the textures related to dwarven creatures and clutter, would change the textures of my mod too.
Now I made my own re-textures with Ebony, Steel, Gold and Silver material (original creature textures aren't changed). It's only a quick re-edit of the vanilla textures, but still a nice refresh :)

Little Warning:

When changing the exoskeleton settings, the improvement or enchantment made on that exoskeleton can be lost. When you select the same preset nothing will change and the switching from the enchantable version can be canceled, so nothing bad :)
If you have more than one exoskeleton in your inventory with the same setting, only one of these will be adjusted, but can't say which.

Known issue:

After adjusting the exoskeleton, the enchantments (or some of them) don't start, they activate after some action, like sprinting, weapon draw...
There is a compatibility issue with the ASIS mod, I can't do much with that, the fix must be done on the other mod, but thanks to Nathanj, here is a fix:
You need to put the name of the esp into the ASIS ini, or you could disable this mod, run ASIS patch and then re-enable it.

Possible compatibility issues:

After adding the mountable weapons I needed to expand the number of used slots and modify the races to make it visible in 1st person mode. So up version 3.0 it could have issues with mods which alters the vanilla races and uses the alternate armor slots 58, 59 and 60. So far I don't have any reports about incompatible mods, for these reasons.
The Exoskeleton is compatible with the Cloaks of Skyrim and Bandolier - Bags and Pouches :D


Use the Nexus Mod Manager or extract the files to your Skyrim/Data folder and select it in the Skyrim launcher.

It's recommend to unequip all mod items first. You can uninstall it like any other mod, via the nexus mod manager or by deleting the two mod related files.

The Re-texture replaces the bsa file, so when you want the original textures, you might need to re-install the main mod.
