The aim of this mod is to make the Chitin armor from the Dragonborn DLC look better and more interesting. The resolution of the textures has been increased to 1024x1024 for the helms, boots, and gauntlets, and 2048x2048 for the cuirass. In addition, a forgeable blued version of the armor has been added.

Version 1.2 contains a retexture of the heavy and light Chitin amors, along with the Morag Tong armor. It also contains three extra craftable versions of the armor: blued, blackened, and golden, along with a new, rather mentally unstable follower, who can be found just outside Raven Rock- he has custom AI and a small amount of dialogue, along with a unique sword with it's own textures and enchantment.


More Variants of the armor, eventually with unique meshes.
More Weapons.
More Dialogue for the follower.
Improvements to the Heavy Chitin armor texture.
NPC integration, perhaps with certain npc's using their own, unique version.


Simple enough, just use NMM, or failing that, drop the files into your Skyrim directory and overwrite- be sure to make backups of the originals first though!


Feel free to modify this mod for personal use as you see fit- however, if you wish to release a mod using any resources etc from this one, make sure to message me telling me you are doing so first, and give credit where credit is due. The original textures I based these on are presumably property of Bethesda. Please do not upload this mod anywhere else without my permission.


This is the first mod I've released on the nexus, so it isn't exactly spectacular, but hopefully it's good enough for a first attempt. Feel free to send me any suggestions for improvements, new armor versions etc, but no pointless insults- constructive criticism only.

Also, please add any screenshots of the armor you wish.

And keep an eye out for my upcoming "Housecarl improvement" mod.
