Permissions and credits
Update/clarifications on requirements:

You need a UNPB body and a BBP (or HDT) skeleton.  (Without a suitable skeleton you will CTD.)

Currently (as of April 9th 2015) I use the 2.5.2Fix version from UNP Blessed Body Redux Project.

I use the XP32 Maximum Skeleton, Version: 2.5 (Groovtama's XPMS Extended).


This mod includes replacers for various armors using the UNPB-BBP body. Some are Semi-Skimpy (usually showing more than a little skin or semi-transparent chainmail, but still wearing more than a bikini) while others are Lore Friendly (very close to vanilla in style but accommodating the UNPB-BBP body).

Semi Skimpy includes:

*Stormcloaks (2 varieties),
*Guards (2 varieties),
*Thieves Guild and Variant,
*Elven Light,
*CaBaL's Thalmor and Steel Glass Variant and Lore_Variant,
*CaBaL's Silver-Ebony and Gold-Ebony Variants,
*Replacer for Steel Armor 13952 with Pantast Steel (Heavier) Chainmail (No change in stats, just appearance),
Replacer for Draugr Armor 18388 with Pantast Ancient (Lighter) Chainmail (No change in stats, just appearance),
*Dawnguard Armors (2 Heavy, 3 Light)
*Ancient Falmer (Light Ivory)
*Heavy Falmer
*Vampire Armor and Royal Vampire Armor
*Cultist Robes
*Nordic Carved Armor (UNPB but without BBP - does Nordic Steel jiggle?)
*Stahlrim Light & Heavy (UNPB but not BBP)
*Bonemold (Regular, Paldron (and Improved) and Guard) UNPB-BBP (It looks flexible.)

* = in the Collected SemiSkimpy File (3.5), individual files now in the Collected file can now be found in the "Optional" files segments for those who only want one or a few of the files.

Lore Friendly includes:

CaBaL's Thalmor and Steel Glass Variant and Lore_Variant for UNP,
*CaBaL's Basic Glass and Thalmor and Steel Glass Variant and Lore_Variant for UNPB-BBP,
CaBaL's Silver-Ebony and Gold-Ebony Variants for UNP
*CaBaL's Black Ebony, Silver-Ebony and Gold-Ebony Variants for UNPB-BBP
*Stormcloaks UNPB-BBP,
*Guards UNPB-BBP,
*Imperial Light & Imperial Studded UNPB-BBP

*Leather UNPB-BBP
*Ancient Nord (aka Draugr) Armor UNPB-BBP
*Thievesguild Armor (Thieves, Variant, Leader, Karliah) UNPB-BBP

* = in the Collected Lore Friendly File (3.4), individual files now in the Collected file can now be found in the "Optional" files segments for those who only want one or a few of the files.


The first Lore Friendly Glass and Ebony armors uploaded (7/1/13) were in fact UNP. I have uploaded the corrected Glass UNPB-BBP and Ebony UNPB-BBP. The main difference in the UNPB-BBP armors is a larger dynamic bust, especially on the higher weights.

Starting with 2.6 Armors are made around the UNPB 2.5 Body (but you can use 2.2 or 2.4 - it just has a slightly different profile.) The 2.5 body should have fewer issue with wrist or neck seems than the 2.4 did. See XP32's page for a fuller discussion of these issues. (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/37900)

UNPB and probably a BBP skeleton: See http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/20227.

The Lore Friendly Variants of CaBaL's and Modd3r's meshes require either or both of their mods (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/37487 or http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/36356) and Exeter's UNP/UNPB meshes (from http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/7305) - there is no difference that I could tell in his Ebony and Glass meshes between UNP and UNPB. I originally created these so that people installing Skyrim Revisited (over on the STEP website) would have the corresponding meshes required to attach CaBaL's texture's to Exeter-style UNP meshes.

The SemiSkimpy Variants of CaBaL's and Modd3r's meshes require either or both of their mods (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/37487 or http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/36356) and RoboNixons's UNPB meshes (from http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/34100).


This mod has replacers armor meshes (for cuirasses only) converted from other body types for UNPB-BBP:

There are three Chainmail replacers. The Pantast file contains two: a Steel Heavy Chainmail replacer for the Steel Light Cuirass (console command 13952) that includes chainmail upper arm defenses and a lighter Ancient Chainmail replacer for the Ancient Nord/Draugr cuirass which includes an ancient Nord hawk carved into the leather. These are both in the same Pantast Chainmail download file. The third one is the original Steel Chainmail replacer which also replaces the Steel light cuirass - you have to choose the Pantast one or the original one.

There are two SemiSkimpy Stormcloak cuirasses (and Hold Guard armors). The first option is a conversion from UNP - Hmm What To Wear by Nightasy and Brokefoot (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/22168). Unlike the original mod the skirt and top are combined into one armor piece, but will show the appropriate guard textures.

The second SemiSkimpy Stormcloak/Guard option ("Alternative") is a conversion from a little sexy apparel replacer - for CBBE UNP ADEC - by Cotyounoyume (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/5564) by way of UNP Armor Replacer Package by MaddBomber83 (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/34102). These have a less substantial skirt and should pads but additional arm and thigh pieces.

The same Thieves Guild armor mesh is used for both the Thieves Guild and the Thieves Guild Variant armor. The main version uses the brown texture and the variant uses the gray texture. The top, skirt and leggings are all from Killer Keos Skimpy CBBE V2-V3 Armor Replacer -Work In Progress- by Killer Keo (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/3654).

The Dawnguard, Vampires and Falmer are also conversions to UNPB-BBP from Killer Keo's CBBE collection. Exeter (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/22033) has Dawnguard and Vampire boots for UNP/B bodies.

NB: The Vampire screen shots use Dawnguard Vampire Armors Retexture by Messias Mummo (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/28014) - very nice textures. Most armor screenshots use CaBaL's awesome Book of Silence retextures.

The Cultist Robes and Bonemold are also conversions to UNPB-BBP and Nordic Carved and Stahlrim Armor to UNPB from Killer Keo's CBBE collection. Exeter (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/22033) has boots, etc. for UNP/B bodies. (The illustrations of the Nordic Carved Armor uses CaBaL's excellent aMidianBorn textures.)

RoboNixon has a very nice collection of similar style meshes at Killer Keos Skimpy Armor Replacer - UNPB Version (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/34100). This mod grew out of an attempt to add a few personalizing touches and extensions to that mod. If you use the Semi-Skimpy Elven Light armor in this mod you should get his Elven armor for the standard and Gilded Elven Armors. If you use the meshes for Ebony or Glass variants from this mod you should download his Ebony or Glass meshes so that the standard Glass and Black Ebony will be in the same style.

UNP Female Armors by Exeter (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/7305) has a comprehensive collection of Lore Friendly UNPB armors. The Lore Friendly adaptations for CaBaL's Glass and Ebony variants use Exeter's meshes. You should consider downloading his UNPB meshes. I have converted some of these (Stormcloaks, Guards, Imperial Light, Imperial Studded, all 4 Bandit/Fur Armors, Hide, Studded, Scaled (x2), Leather, Draugr)to UNPB-BBP.

I may upload some more that I modify for use in my games that I can't find elsewhere. Let me know what you like or hate about it in the comments. If there is anything similar you want to see I might do it (but certainly can't promise to do so). Also I would appreciate any screenshots you might take using these armors. (As you can see mine are more than a bit uninspired.)

3.2 7/14 Added SemiSkimpy Bonemold Armor (all variants) UNPB-BBP.

You do not need my permission to do anything with these meshes, but you do need the original author's permissions. (See below.)

RoboNixon has a very nice collection of similar style meshes at Killer Keos Skimpy Armor Replacer - UNPB Version ( http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/34100 ). The Elven Light armor in this mod is a minor modification of his Elven version. The Semi-Skimpy meshes for CaBaL and Modd3r's Ebony and Glass variants come from here.

CaBal and Modd3R for their Glass (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/36356 ) and Ebony (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/37487) variant armors. All my mod does is port their Variant and Lore_Variants options to some UNPB-BBP meshes.

Exeter's UNPB meshes (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/7305) or modifications thereto are used for the Lore Friendly Glass and Ebony meshes and the SemiSkimpy Steel Chainmail as well as various Lore Friendly armors such as Stormcloaks, Guards, Imperial Light & Studded, Bandit/Fur, Hide, Studded, Scaled, Scaled Horn, Leather, Draugr & Theviesguild.

The chainmail meshes come from UNP Nord Chainmail Armor by johnwayne1930
