What started as very personal project to get a superhero game in VR for myself turned into a massive scale project  to create a massive superhero story within Skyrim, leveraging the world itself in a way that makes sense!

I scavenged the net for EVERY Super Hero mod I could find, and then only kept the cream of the crop.  For the past 4 months I have converted old mods, squashed bugs, fixed meshes, and merge portions into the Secret War mod.  Additionally i reached out to countless orginal authors- all of which were super helpful and can be seen in my permissions tab - show them some love!  This is a huge story driven adventure that begins after Thanos snapped his fingers.

Permissions have been obtained for all assets, full list below and in permissions section.  Thank you to all of the authors who allowed me to do so and make this possible.

Fully compatible with SE and VR

TL;DR: Super hero/Sci-Fi mod with Marvel, DC, Star Wars, TMNT, Terminator, Predator, Aliens.  All characters have their abilities attached to thier armors via script.  For example, pu ton Iron man armor and spells get added, take it off, they are removed.  90 heros, THOUSANDS OF VILLAINS (60 unique models, scaled at various difficulties), and a custom quest; vr: vr body patch and voice attack Friday/Jarvis.  Videos, prereq and DL links below

My voiceattack profile and a VRBody Patch can be found in optional files.  This allows you to use Friday/Jarvis as Iron Man (or any character).  She will respond to weapon names (for example when using dragonborn speaks naturally to equip items), provide quest information, and even crack a few jokes.  VR Body patch will allow full view of all armors in first person for VR.

I say Beta, but I've spent about 200 hours squashing bugs alone, so it's very close to a finished state.  A couple facegen files might be off, maybe a couple incompatibilities on some of the outfits on the bandits still.

Definitely check out the quest video using VoiceAttack TTS to act as Iron Man's Friday (voice assistant). She provides the quest as opposed to a book.


The mod adds:

Over 50 Super hero and other Sci Fi lore armors and abilities added to the game - the abilities are attached to the armors!  Meaning you put on the Spider-man suit and you gain the web sling (yes you heard correct and it's awesome), and shoot webs as well as use your spider sense.  Any of the Iron Man armors will give you the weapons and abilities of the suits, each iron man suit has different abilities!  When you remove the armor they are removed from your spell list, btw I highly recommend trying wolverine, the claws are a ton of fun, especially in vr!

Take it a step further with the Switch Hero spell.  Takes you to a modified race menu that will preserve your skills, perks and stats.  Choose from Kryptonian, various Mutants, Spider-Man, and several other races.  This is to further the role playing experience and customize your character and name to match whoever you are currently playing.  This function will be replaced by the fantastic Alternative Actors mod if it ever has a successful port to SE.

What do I get?

(30 Marvel, 25 DC, 35 TMNT/Star Wars/Terminator/Aliens/Predators)

  • Marvel characters are at Sjel Blad castle (your base of operations)
  • DC characters are split at the Fortress of Solitude and the Batcave
  • Spawn and Scorpion can be found in the sewers under Whiterun
  • The Ninja Turtles are in the Whiterun Sewers
  • Danger room to spawn up to 5 heroes, villains, and various other options to test your abilities and check out each character

All with proper powers/abilities/weapons, clothing, perks/skills!
Spells to conjure follower groups, i.e. Avengers Assemble spell will beam in the Avengers, the higher your conjuration the more heroes you can summon :)

Fight your way thorough packs of familiar villains.  Some will be in familiar groupings (Sinestro and Sinestro Core, Deathstroke with league of assassins ninjas, etc), others may have new shocking alliances (Dr Doom, Darth Vader and Zod with an army of Doom bots, sith and Storm Troopers)

62 unique villains across Marvel, DC
(25 Marvel, 12 DC, 25 TMNT/Star Wars/Terminator/Aliens/Predators)

  • All scaled differently with various, skills, perks, and difficulty
What I need (Prerequisite Mod Requirements)-
These are 100% required: Skyrim SE and DLC, FNIS, XPMSSE, Phendrix Magic Evolved, Apocalypse Magic, Sjel Blad Castle, Skyrim Sewers SE, OBIS, Predators Lost Tribes, Nuby's Star wars mod, Iceburgs Spiderman Suit.  See pre-requisites/requirements section for links.

That's it, put these above the secret war in your load order and you're good to go.  I have a picture of my load order in the screenshots section.

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST DELETE THE FACEGEN FILES from OBIS and SJEL BLED CASTLE or you will have issues with the bandits.  You also have to open the OBIS book and turn OBIS on if you are not using my save file.(In OBIS and SJEL BLED mods you must  delete: meshes\actors\character\facegendata\
and
textures\actors\character\facegendata\)

Secret War should be as close to the bottom of your load order as possible.

Please note, that since this is a beta release and the quest/suit crafting and placement is not completed yet, if you head to the living quarters at Sjel Blad castle you will find a large chest in the closet area next to 3 mannequins.  Inside is Dr Strange's Journal giving your quest objectives, as well as all the suits/armors, weapons, and non armor based spells (summon spells, flying config).  I have also included a save file placing you right in front of the appropriate chest.

Also, scaling is still a work in progress, you may want to increase your skills via console during the beta if you find it too difficult, although it seems spot on for the most part.  Additionally, if you prefer to just carry all the suits and weapons at once I recommend increasing your carry weight via console.

LORE/STORYCURRENLTY THIS IS A BOOK IN THE SBC LIVING QUARTERS CHEST (MORE INFO BELOW)

If you choose to play the quest there is an entire story from Iron Man's point of view beginning with an epic battle against Thanos resulting in his snap sending you and all the other universes mentioned above spiraling into Skyrim.  The story is heavily inspired by Marvel Secret Wars (both the classic and recent story line run in the comics). 
After Thanos snaps his fingers you are violently thrown into the strange new world of Tamriel.  With nothing but a broken suit your journey to find your way back to our universe begins, but it won't be easy. 

Time and Space are funny things and it appears the evil presence from our various universes arrived weeks prior to our hero, allowing them to infiltrate, overthrow, and enslave the residents of Tamriel.  Furthermore some of the more powerful foes have begun to form alliances, so you'll want to track down some of your allies quickly. 
To survive and get home you'll need to:

  • Craft suits using various items to give you the power and weapons you'll need to break out
    • Craft 20 different Iron Man suits with proper scaling.  Different suits will have different enchantments, and be helpful for different portions of your mission.  Suits that are more difficult to acquire, or come later in the game will have higher buffs.
  • Find your friends as well as new allies from other universes
  • Track down parallel versions of some our heroes in Tamriel, finding them will be critical in finding your way home.  Lucky for you they are in some fantastic locations.  In one case I'll give you a hint: fortress of sitting by yourself …

You will learn that Tamriel also has identical versions of each of the Infinity Stones, and leveraging FafnirEtherion's fantastic Infinity War mod you will need to find them all and assemble a gauntlet of your own if you ever hope to get home.
Additional bits:

  • Using the fantastic Sjel Blad Castle I have created replacers for the existing companions porting in our Heroes.  They are there awaiting you to pick them up as followers.  There is also a sparring pit in the barracks where you can instantly spawn and fight all heroes and villains for prizes
  • I have created additional custom NPC's, exclusive to this mod such as Hydra symbiote super soldiers, shown off in the video :D
  • Utilizing Obis, I built a replacer for ALL OBIS bandits with Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Terminator TMNT, and Mortal Kombat Villains.  Villains are scaled same as obis:
    • Low level bandits such as Hydra soldiers and League of Shadows ninjas
    • Mid level such as Mindless symbiote soldiers and doom bots
    • Boss's such as Dr. Doom, The Joker, Darth Vader, and much much more!
    • Bounty Bandits on Noticeboard (if you have noticeboard you can go get missions to hunt and kill Dr Doom, Darth Vader, etc)
  • VR EXCLUSIVE - There is an optional patch included for the fantastic VR Body mod.  It is absolutely awesome, however between the scripts in the SecretWar.esp and the ones in the VR body I have experienced occasional freezing (going to the steamvr screen) from script lag.  Not often, but worth keeping in mind.
  • Friday/Jarvis VOICEATTACK Profile- Designed to be paired with Dragonborn speaks naturally, specifically the favorites menu equip and unequip commands.  Please note that for the response to work properly you must remove the "equip" prefix and set it to blank, per the author's instructions in the Dragonborn Speaks INI, pre-programmed text to speech responses for common equip commands as well as some quest related information and hints.  Perfect for Iron Man, designed to be your own Friday or Jarvis.  Requires VoiceAttack and will use whatever text to speech voice you select.
  • WIP:
    • You and the rest of the Marvel heroes in an initial battle with Thanos where you lose and get transported to Skyrim.  This will take place in a CELL outside of Tamriel made to look like our world/the Marvel universe
    • Quest and quest objectives for once you retrieve each stone.  I.e. you have the space stone go see so and so
    • Skyrim versions of certain characters to enhance quest (I already have the NPC's with appropriate armors and abilities, just have to place them in the world and provide them the dialogue)
    • Rework crafting on all Super hero armors and weapons, especially Iron Man suits
    • Further tweak/scale spell impacts, attach spells to suits (i.e. Repulsor abilities and flight to Iron Man suits, Claws and Healing to Wolverine's outfit)

Can be used with all sorts of mods, I add tons of locations and quests - quests are fun as the different heroes

Just can't modify same worldspace as batcave, sjel blad, or fortress, also must be compatible with prerequisites, that’s it!

Thank you to everyone in the list below for allowing me to use your assets and make this possible.  I don't believe I did, but if I missed anyone whose assets I have used please reach out to me and give me an opportunity to correct it.  Again, I don't believe that's the case, and if so I apologize - the mod is just simply massive.
