Q: Where can I find these hoods?
A: The same places you find the vanilla hoods, on people like mages or priests, containers like wardrobes, and in stores. You can also craft them at a tanning rack with 1 leather and 2 leather strips. You must also have the corresponding quests completed (i.e. Pieces of the Past for the Mythic Dawn and Taking Care of Business for the basic Thieves Guild hoods).
If you are using More Craftable Equipment and the patches for it, you can craft them at the looms added by that mod.

Q: What are the ids?
A: Open the console using ` and type: "help lowered".

Q: Is there clipping?
A: Some, about as much as vanilla hoods, the lowered mage hoods are the worst in this regard. The Karliah hood shows up on males but clips pretty horribly. The Chainmail hood with fur from the ACE patch also clips on males.

Q: Is there / will there be an Oldrim version?
A: Not from me most likely, however the permissions state that anyone can make one. If that person is you, send me a message and I'll add a link on the page.

  • More hoods: Thieves Guild, Mythic Dawn, Psijic - Done
  • ESL-ify/Flag as .esl - Done
  • Mod Support: WACCF, ACE, Wet and Cold - Done
  • Thalmor Hood - Done
  • Dumner Hoods - Done
  • Change Integration - Not really sure what to do here, the current integration works fine. Maybe move recipes to a tailoring bench if such a mod exists.

Practically everything. There are few additions to leveled lists but a bash patch should fix that. No bash tags are needed.
CasualKhajiit has made an Addon for Northborn Hoods - check it out.
