Oi, you folks. Have you ever felt that there was a Steel Plate Shield-shaped hole in your The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition experience? Are you a Steel Plate enthusiast but cannot bare to cope with the absence of a Steel Plate Shield in your The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition playthrough?
With Finally, A Steel Plate Shield For The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition (FASPSFTESVSSE), you can cure your Steel Plate Shield-deficiency with an actual Steel Plate Shield in your The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition video game.


Bethesda Game Studios intended to have a Steel Plate Shield in Skyrim, but they scrapped it, leaving its crafting and tempering recipes remaining in the game files. I presume they would have placed its quality between Dwarven and Orcish. After getting tired waiting for a modder to make a Steel Plate Shield, I took matters into my own hands and have modelled and textured one myself, matching the aesthetics of the Steel Plate style to the best of my amateur ability (though you are free to make your own texture if you wish).

FASPSFTESVSSE adds a Shield Plate Shield to the game, uses the existing vanilla crafting and tempering recipes (so blame Bethesda if you're unhappy with the crafting recipe), alters most of the shield levelled lists to include this shield and changes the inventories of three Steel Plate Armour-clad NPCs who wear shields (Kharjo, Salma and Gormlaith Golden-Hilt) to have this shield instead.

Because FASPSFTESVSSE changes most of the shield levelled lists, I recommend merging the levelled lists by making a bashed patch in Wrye Bash.

I recommend you install this using a mod manager of some kind or copy the contents of the zip file into your Data/ folder if you know what you’re doing.

Programs used: Blender, Skyrim Creation Kit, XEdit, SSE Nif Optimiser (for the Special Edition version) NifSkope, NifUtilsStuite, Adobe Photoshop (with Nvidia’s Normal Map Filter Addon)

My thanks to the makers of the above software and BGS, whose neglect resulted in me making this mod.
