[size=+2]About this Mod[/size]

[size=+1]This mod offers lore- friendly high quality re-textures of the great Mavari and Contractor armours by ZeroFrost in a Ranger style and a standalone Shortsword based on a model by InsanitySorrow. The armors work with every female or male body replacer, since they show no skin.

This mod is highly modular, as you can either choose one of the the full packs, or - if you only want to use parts of this mod - the single items like "Mavari Gold Edition" or "Ranger Steel Shortsword".

The textures of the main version are quite big, but can be used without problems as all of my various testers have reported. I chose to keep the colour maps uncompressed for the best possible texture quality and look. A performance version will be added soon if required, but I really recommend to use the main uncompressed version.

About the looks of it images can say more than thousand words of mine - especially since I have the honour to have some of the greatest screenarchers on the Nexus as regular beta testers for my work. Be sure to check out their remarkable work in the gallery on this front page and in the image section of this mod. I also recommend to watch the fantastic video reviews that you see how they look and work ingame.[/size]

[size=+1]Skyrim 1.9+ is required for this mod to work. For the armour variants you also need the original mod by Zerofrost. The blade is completely standalone.[/size]


[size=+1]For the armours :

1. Install the Contractor and Mavari Armors by Zerofrost

2. Download one of the mod files and extract the file into your skyrim directory, e.g. C:Program Files (x86)SteamSteamAppscommonskyrimData and say "yes" when being asked to integrate and override.

You can choose only one armour option for the Mavari and the Contractor armor at the same time.

For the standalone blade :

Download the mod file and extract the file into your skyrim directory, e.g. C:Program Files (x86)SteamSteamAppscommonskyrimData and say "yes" when being asked to integrate and override.[/size]


[size=+1]Delete the file via NMM or manually by deleting the files contained in the mod folder within your Skyrim "Textures" folder.[/size]


[size=+1]The armour variants should be compatible with everything except other retextures of the same files. The blade is compatible with everything except the original mod by InsanitySorrow.[/size]

[size=+2]The Items and Variants[/size]

[size=+1]The Mavari Ranger Gold Edition is my main variant for the Mavari armour and provides a noble female ranger outfit which has been composed of several different leather types and steel and golden metal elements.

The leather is generally a tip darker than the Copper edition and has been optimized to allow mashups with gloves/bracers and boots from Cabal120's and brokefoot's fantastic armour sets.[/size]

by Yyna

[size=+1]The Mavari Ranger Copper Edition is the first alternate variant of the Mavari armor and sports a less shiny, more down-to-earth look, with slighly brighter leather types and a kind of experimental copper metal combined with steel.

If you want to try something different than the usual gold and silver/steel this may be the right thing for you.[/size]

[size=+1]The Contractor Ranger Armor features a complete overhaul of the Contractor armor, which provides a unique looking high quality gear for several types of male characters, which offers protection as well as versatility and some eye candy.

It is crafted with several composed types of leather with bronze and silver metal parts which give this male armor set a believable, unique and lore-friendly look.[/size]

[size=+1]The Ranger Steel Shortsword is the standlalone weapon which has been visually customized to be the perfect company for the armours. It is a re-textured version of InsanitySorrow's Oblivion based Cyrodiilic Steel Shortsword and can be crafted under the steel section at every forge.[/size]
