About this mod

An Automatic Variants Port. The author of the textures is chocolambot. Contents: 12 NEW textures: DragonPriest(1), Hagraven(1), Rabbit(6), Falmer(1), Slaughterfish(1), Frostbitespider(2). AV by Leviathan1753 makes it possible that when 6 rabbits are shown there is a change (depends on how the dices roll) that all six use a different texture.

Latest News:
Thursday 2012-08-02: Version 1.0 has been released. Added support for Nexus Mod Manager, Mod Organizer (untested by me but reported to work by a user) and Wrye Bash 299. I want to thank Arkangel for his help to get WB working.Textures are now compressed and are shown in the AV GUI.


This mod page contains a so called Automatic Variants Package (AVP) which is ONLY usable in combination with Automatic Variants by Leviathan1753.A better description would be Automatic Variants Port because I did not create the textures myself but I'm using textures created by real texture artists.

Information about Automatic Variants

  • A video found on youtube and created by Sounaipr (author of a few AV Packages ) shows AV in action using a few of the availabe AV packages:
  • Also this slideshow of pictures of AV-tized NPC's created by Leviathan1753 might give you a good impression.
  • More information about Automatic Variants and what it is can be found on my on my Nexus page called "Wolverines collection of Automatic Variants Ports tools and resources" .

That page will act as a central hub where amongst other things an overview of my collection of AV Ports is shown and links to the corresponding mod pages. This is also the reason that I have disabled the forum here, so all questions, remarks can be centralized.

I have contacted chocolambot and asked him if I could use his excellent textures for an AV Port and he give me permission, for which I'm grateful. This resulted in the creation of the AV Port shown below.

The way I see it, its not up to me to decide what textures users should use or like. This is also the opinion of the auhor of Automatic Variants. AV has a GUI which enables users to enable/disable specific textures for a NPC. It also has a .dds file viewer builtin which shows a flattened skin of a NPC. Hence users can create the Skyrim experience they prefer


Discussion forum

For questions, problems and genreal discussion visit my central hub. I had accidentily enabled the forum here, but it will (probably) be disabled in the future.

Testing of the AV Port

I have create a collection of bat files to spawn NPC's from the console. These can be found here.


Feedback

I would LOVE to receive information regarding the crediting of the authors, info about the contents, the readme files (clear or unreadable, up to date) etcetera. This would enable me to create better AV Ports and also faster.

Endorsements

If you download and use this AV Port I would highly appreciate it if you visit the homepage of the author who created the textures, do a manual download of the mods used in this AV Port AND endorse the author. In the 'Files' section at the top of any Nexus page there is a 'Download history' option which gives an overview of all the mods you have downloaded and its status (endorsed or not endorsed). Remark: Unless you have a Premium account the 'download history' will be reset at the beginning of a new month. The "endorsement/unique downloads" ratio for ALL mods on the Nexus is ridiculous low. My rule of thumb: If I download and use a mod I endorse. I would not mind if you endorse this mod as well. I have quite a lot of private AV Ports and endorsements would give me an incentive to create more public AV Ports. What can I say, I'm only human.....
