Truly light Glass Armor - Replacer
A GlassArmor a thieves, scout, and assassins could actually wear proudly. Female only.
Lore friendly, somehow sexy.
Textures are linked with the vanilla version (i.e. if you use a texture replacer it will affect also this armor),
while the under-armor leather suit has its own textures.


What is it? ______________________________________________________________
A replacer for the female vanilla glass armor.
Textures of the leather suit are especially made for this armor by OperatorCactus (the  seams are 100% original).

Armors of the same series:
Truly Light Elven armor (male)

Truly Light Elven Armor (female)

Why are you claiming this is truly light? _______________________________________
A light armor should be planned to be silent, light, and avoid to prevent movements; no matter if
some parts of the body are poorly covered. That is: rigid plates 
should not cover mobile parts
(prevents movements), no jingling parts like chain 
mail or glass skirt (noisy), caution with mobile
joints (could be noisy and/or 
prevents movements).

A heavy armor is planned to cover the body completely as it is needed for a field battle; no matter
if it is bulky, heavy, noisy, and prevents some movements. I's only goal is to bring you home alive.

Therefore, vanilla Glass Armor looks actually as a heavy armor while it should be light.

About the material ________________________________________________________
Gathering the information about the Glass, and considering the shape the Glass armor took in the Elder Scrolls, it seems a very light, shatterproof and hard material. It is very hard to model, expecially in large pieces, so Glass is often covered by metal keeping the smaller pieces toghether that, anyway, make the most of the material of the armor. The ability of making large Glass pieces is higher in Cirodiil than Skyrim and in Morrowind it is much lower. The sound of the large Glass-metal pieces could be quite dull.

The mod includes the textures of the leather suit only (by OperatorCactus), while points to the vanilla
textures for all the rest of the armor. Therefore, if you are using a mod replacing the glass armor textures
it will affect this mod too. Many of the pictures above are using different retextures mods.
In my personal opinion the Retexture [aMidianBorn Glass Armor (by Modd3r and CaBaL), Thalmor variant] is fully
within the spirit of this armor for scaut-rangers-assassins.

UUNP-bodyslide conversion by Diablio main REPLACER is needed (this one, and an adult one, are available outside

UUNP-bodyslide conversion of the NoPauldrones (body piece only) by HeavyDude main REPLACER is needed 
        UUNP install instructions by MystoganV for Bodyslide v3.6
          (if YOU know it works with higher versions, please Post it on this page. If it don't and you know how to make it work, please Post that procedure.)
1. Install TL-Glass from the main files section.
          2. Install the UUNP bodyslide file from the miscellaneous section. Select "merge files," not "Replace".
          3. Activate the file in left pane of MO.
          4. Open Bodyslide through MO.
          5. Verify the body (UNP/UNPNevernude/UNP Special) you prefer is selected in the top left tab of Bodyslide window.
          6. Make sure you have the Bodyslide preset (UNP, Sevenbase, Seraphim, etc) you desire is properly selected in the second from
              the top left-hand tab in Bodyslide window.
          7. Then go into the 'group filter' tab (Middle tab on very top of Bodyslide window)
          8. Scroll down to 'WTF Truly Light Glass Armor.' Make sure it is checked.
          9. Click Batch Build in the lower left corner of Bodyslide window. (Make sure you have 'racemenu morphs' checked if you are using
              them in conjunction with racemenu).
              When you click "batch build," you can hold down the 'shift' key while batch building and you can direct the new
              meshes to go to your MO Overwrite folder. That way you can make it "its own mod,' so to speak. Makes it easier if you
              want to change up presets later.

Questions and answers_____________________________________________________
Are you going to produce a male version? 
Well, this is not scheduled yet. If you will produce the mail version from this armor 
you are welcome 
(please cite this page, and for the leather textures ask permission to OperatorCactus). 

Conversions to other body types? 
- The armor is independent from the body type (only armor with visible skin are linked to UNP-type or CBBE-type).
- look at "related mods" Vanilla Outfits BodySlided (with HDT-PE) for CBBE

Preset of the wonderful green face lady
The wonderful lady with green stripes on the face was uploaded by snelss0, a preset is available here:

How about the scarf?
The pics of the scarf (and a Bodyslide conversion) are by OperatorCactus (my coauthor, the texturer), about the scarf he said:
The scarf is of Skyrim Scarves and Mufflers with my own personal tweaks to the colors. If that mod does not exist anymore, Keeping Warm uses the same models so making a red scarf in photoshop or gimp is easy peasy.
The red cape is from HDT capes and is easily found on the nexus.
Hope I've helped. 

The glass armor parts use vanilla texture paths so any retexture will also affect this armor.

For Modders_____________________________________________________________
I need someone able to build a simple quest for the "Dibella Relic Armor". The armor is nearly ready
(I'm at half work with the male version). A lore friendly 
story is ready (but negotiable), I can help as Papyrus
scripter. The idea to 
publish armor and quest nearly the same day with a link among them in the respective
Nexus pages. If you are a bit interested PM me, and I will send you the story.
