IMPERIAL AFFAIRS
 

About the mod(s) and this thread

 

NOTE: The questline idea is currently cancelled due to lack of time I foresee. By the time I get some free time I think we'll be playing another Elder Scrolls game, but you never know.

Instead I am concentrating on putting real life hitorical weapons and armor from various nations in the the Roman period into Skyrim.

I will use this thread to update the steplan, collect ideas from people if any are put forth and to post concept art and screenshots.

 

Here is a quick step-plan. You can click on some of the entries to go to that mod's page.:

 

1. Roman Armor and Weapons [Status: released  (bugs to be fixed)] 
2. Imperial Followers Mod   [Status: released (bugs to be fixed) ]

3. Germanic Armor and Weapons [Status: Alpha released (bugs to be fixed) ]

4. Celtic Armor and Weapons [Status: Alpha released (bugs to be fixed) ]

5. Eastern type Armor and Weapons [Status: Not yet started ]
6. The secret ones main quest line  [Status: On hold/cancelled. Reason: no time]
7. Random unlimited side quests for the agency [Status: On hold/cancelled. Reason: no time]
8. A Roman house, perhaps as reward for the quest [Status: On hold. Reason: there is already a Roman house mod on Nexus]

 


Q: Will this be lore friendly?
A:
There is nothing particular that makes it not lore firendly, but I
decided recently that I will no longer go to length to be sensitive to
the lore. The time for that has passed anyway.

Q: When is everything expected to be done?
A:
I am a very slow human, I have very limited experience modding, I have a
full time job plus studies and there is no team behind me other than
Bethesda. No it will not be out in a few weeks, that's for sure. If you
like Skyrim enough and will come back to this game periodically (every
year or so) chances are I will have new stuff by then.

May have been carried away with working on concepts...just a tad.
uneven chrome surfaces are really hard to paint, did you know that?

Light Roman armor shaping up for an semi-alpha release this weekend. Easier to make than segmented armor, but distortions are more visible than with the small plates of uvmapped material like steel. The armor doesn't look too interesting but real life armor often didn't.

No joke! Many people are looking for just that :D Glad to see progress on this.

Fixing other released models, but never stopping to work on new stuff...or it quickly stops being fun.
I am planning a number of these daggers. Because the shape for these daggers is quite the same for most of them, I can keep using the same mesh and add a few retextures.

I'm hoping that your combo of mods will make NPC Legion more formidable. Vanilla Imperials are just so frakkin' wussy. In every (mod added) random battle between Stormcloaks and Imperials, the Imperials get their butts handed to them without your intervention. Every. Single. Time.
It kind of makes the whole Civil War plotline silly and unnecessary.

This is a really great idea for the Legion!:) If only someone could do this for the stormcloaks:/..unfortunately, compared to the legion, they have the weaker equipment.
