Vigilant Armors and Weapons Retexture SE


The idea for this mod started after I played Vicn's Vigilant quest mod for the first time. It quickly became my favorite quest mod. I loved all of it, especially the last act. My only issue with this mod, was that some of the armor and weapon textures seemed a bit low-resolution and some of the colors looked a bit off to me. Since I've had a lot more free time lately, I decided I would try to retexture most of Vigilant's armor and weapons. This mod is just a personal project of mine, but since I haven't seen any mod on the nexus that retextures all of Vigilant's armors and weapons in one, I decided I would upload it here. I'm open to any suggestions, as long as it is constructive!

Version 4.0

 Version 4.0 is almost a brand new mod. Besides 2-3 sets, I redid everything from scratch. Vigilant's latest update (1.7) added many new armors and weapons and it also brought new higher resolution meshes and textures. I set out to retexture the new items, but quickly realized that my older retextures didn't look so good anymore. For this reason, I decided to ready them all (or almost all of them). I also deleted all .nif files besides the Laza of order helmet (to add the read "hair/feather") and the slave hunter coat to fix a bug where the wrists disappear if you wear gloves. Removing all the nif files means you will not need a patch for CBBE, HIMBO, 3BA, etc. If you were using the old CCBE patch, you can uninstall it. 


Simply choose your version and install. Load after Vigilant SE and the HI-res pack (if you use it)

Hi res: mix of 4k and 2k textures, for higher-end pc
Medium res: mix of 2k and 1k textures, for your average pc
Low res: Mix of 1k and 512 textures, for lower end pc


This mod Does not modify Vigilant's BSA and/or ESM/ESP, it is simply loose files, so it is safe to use with any version of Vigilant but was made to work with version 1.7+

Version 4.0 removed almost all mesh changes, so there is no need for a patch if you use bodyslides (CBBE, 3BA, HIMBO, etc.)


Thank you for giving this mod a chance! If you haven't tried Vigilant yet, I highly recommend it! Special thanks to Vicn for creating this amazing mod, to Aelarr for the amazing English voice Add-on and to everyone on the Owl Archives server for the constant support!  If you anyone has suggestions or requests, feel free to do so!
