    **UPDATED PERMISSIONS, AND FAREWELL!**



    Okay - I've had a lot of requests going way back about either finishing any of my incomplete mods for Skyrim, or changing permissions etc. For one reason or another I haven't gotten around to this at the time, & then Life Happens & I totally forget. Again. It's about time I just set aside a few minutes to get this done & let folks get on with what they need to do.

    Housekeeping - Permissions:

    ALL MY ARMOUR MESHES ARE NOW FREE FOR USE IN YOUR MODMAKING FOR SKYRIM AND/OR SKYRIM S.E. - YOU CAN ADD PART OR ALL OF THEM AS YOU NEED TO, AS LONG AS YOU CREDIT ME AND ANY OTHER AUTHORS/CONRIBUTORS NAMED.

    IF YOU USE ANY PART OF THE BODY MESHES INCLUDED IN ANY OF THESE ARMOURS, PLEASE GIVE THANKS TO THE CREATORS OF THE SEVENBASE BODY.

    YOU CAN PORT MY PRESETS MODS TO SKYRIM S.E.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO CLAIM MY WORK OR ANYONE ELSE'S AS YOUR OWN.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO UPLOAD MY MODS TO ANY OTHER SITE. EVER. NEXUSMODS ONLY.

    I AM UNABLE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT/TROUBLESHOOTING.

    HAVE AT IT!




    Done!

    ... now - how come this took me so long? Well... there's a story there...

    The last two mesh mods I was making really did my head in - no matter what I did, they broke. It was a technical glitch which I lacked the ability to fix. I got help - and even got things fixed by others, eventually. But every time I opened these things on my own machines they broke. So, I took a break to clear my head. A few weeks turned into months turned into... etc. etc. etc.

    ("I used to be a modder like you. Then I took a .nif file to the knee")

    Further down the track I'd moved on. In my free time I was doing a host of other fun things & especially spending way more time at the gym than I had which has been awesome. I always meant to get around to tinkering with things again & restarting modding for Skyrim, still had plenty of ideas & so-on. But I realised that had never even finished the game - I'd ended up spending more time trying to get mods to work together and then fix them again and again and again than I ever did actually playing the game. While I enjoy making mods, in this case it felt futile. And by that point in any case I had nothing like the free time I'd had when I started making all this stuff.

    I happened to have a free day today - and, finally, I actually remembered to stop by here & do this. For all those who over time have asked me to get this done I am really very sorry!

    I won't be modding another Bethesda game. After the amount of work needed to "fix" Skyrim, I just don't have the free time for a repeat. Plus, none of their other titles really grabbed my interest.

    I do play other games, and I am (slowly) learning Blender and DAZ3D, so I may in time make things for those and for other games I sometimes play - if I do, it will be under the same name whether here or elsewhere. So keep a look out, it'd be great to hear from y'all! Happy Gaming!

    **UPDATE! SEVENBASE UNDERWEAR
    by FastestDog and Vioxis! 3 Texture Options!
    LOCATED UNDER "UPDATES" IN THE FILES SECTION!**


    WOOHOO! UPDATE TIME!

    Okay, for any of those who have kept tabs on me (in a non-stalkerish way) and my various modding mishaps, you will know that underwear meshes for SeveNBase and UNPB are something I have repeatedly tried, and failed, to produce. WELL NO MORE! Here they are, at long last - and it is thanks to Vioxsis!

    (...no, that is not some kinda medication I suddenly started taking. Don't deny that's what you were thinking just now! )

    One of the problems that had confounded me in past attempts on this & other projects was that the meshes kept seeming to "split" or "crumple" when certain necessary effects were applied. The problem turned out to be the UVs - something which I had *NO* knowledge of how to fix despite several abortive attempts at it. Recently, Vioxsis showed me clearly & simply how to *FIX* all these problems step by step, and really went above & beyond in helping! Vioxsis gets joint credit for this release, as I consider this a shared project, for which I am very grateful indeed!

    Okay - what is included is basically a set of underwear-clad SeveNBase Cleavage meshes, on the Vanilla skeleton. This underwear is a new, higher-poly mash of the existing Vanilla underwear meshes. There are THREE texture variants you can choose from! Original Two-Tone, Brown Cloth, and Black Cloth - so you can try out all three & see which you like best! As always, let me know what you think!

    *I HIGHLY recommend Kobayashi's excellent "2x Clothing" texture mod with these. It's an oldie but a goodie. I use the "Standard Weave" & "Filthy Beggars" versions, and you can see the textures in, well, pretty much any pic I've ever posted which has clothing meshes displayed (unless otherwise labelled).

    *Pics posted at the moment are from my laptop, hence the low-res-ness. My desktop install has gone berserk...

    EDIT: Black Cloth version will now display properly - I had accidentally uploaded Brown here twice instead of Brown and Black. Sorry 'bout that!!

    Quick heads-up - I'm working on something new, which might interest some of you! New body mesh WIP. Head over to the pic & see what you think!



    *And yes, work on SeveNBase continues (just tinkering with some other things as well)!

      Well. To be honest, i'm all for realism. So this muscular female body isn't really my favorite. Although other people might appreciate it. And.. Tinkering is always good!

    Hey all, love this mod and the fantastic remodelling. I recently had to reset my game and for some reason the remodels aren't showing up. I'm using Mod Organizer, and when I right-click this mod and look under conflicts it says that it is in conflict with the USLEEP mod. I had them both active in my old game and it worked fine, but right now it doesn't seem to be. Does anyone know what the problem might be? I tried reinstalling the Fastest Dogs one, but no go, it's just showing the vanilla armours.
     
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Nice armors. What is the difference between these ones and these: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/7305/?tab=2&navtag=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nexusmods.com%2Fskyrim%2Fajax%2Fmodfiles%2F%3Fid%3D7305&pUp=1

    other than yours are obviously less, but more beautiful. Is there anything else? Can i just have the linked ones installed and on top yours to get all the benefits? Thanks in advance and Bravo for your armors man!

      The difference is that the ones here are for the SeveNBase body type while those in the mod you linked are for the UNP body type.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a dragonbone and dragonscale variant. Still, you've done an excellent job with everything thus far.

    Does anyone have any issues with MO and the underwear not appearing? I have Sevenbase installed and installed the underwear mod after it and it worked fine. I went to try a few other mods on a different profile that were unrelated to the textures and for some reason they are not appearing anymore.

    I don't know if it is because the vertex wheighting is off, it may even be an issue that arose from using the bounce and jiggles seven base hdt body (can not think why though) or maybe prison clothes are simply not converted to hdt yet, any way the character is max weight but rather nicely wrap around the body, the prison clothes are messed up, jagged and clipping heaps.

    I have the recommended skeleton installed and just moved it under your mod in mod organizer if that don't fix it I guess the prudent thing is to delete it and play the waiting game.

    Hey FastestDog, I'm a big fan of your work. I adore the proportioning of the SeveNBase Bombshell body, but I loathe the fact that all the compatible armor sets out there are scantified versions of the vanilla armors. Not that I don't care for skin, but fetishized heavy armor isn't my bag. You're a real hero for even taking this on as far as you have, so thank you. I look forward to more updates on this in the near future!
