Noun: A statement of the beliefs or aims that guide someone's actions: "he announced his credo in his first editorial"."
This thread is purely for my WIP, something I started some time ago, however at the time I did not have the knowledge to fulfil my ambitions. Now thanks to some of the kind and helpful people on the Nexus, but mostly due to the work of Nightasy and his brilliant Yourtube video tutorials, I have been able to realise some of the goals I had previously set my self.
This planned mod is an aesthetic overhaul, a re-interpretation of the lore of Tamriel. The vision and the work is my own, but that doesnt mean I would not appreciate suggestions and ideas.
The more research assistants I have the more inspiration I will gain, which will hasten my time spent on this mod. So please feel free to post photos/pictures, especially of Transitional Armour from the 14th century.
What is my Credo My ultimate goal is to replace 100% of the vanilla armours and weapons (at least). At least meaning that I may also go on to look at replacing common clothes as well. Clutter, Architecture, monsters, quests, items & gameplay will most likely be left untouched. Therefore ensuring this mods compatibility with as many other mods as possible, any mods that add armour or weaponry instead of replacing them will work fine with the finished article. As for the theme..
It has been pointed out that the armours currently on display fall into the aesthetic appearance of that in Europe in 1300's, why I am doing this is purely down to my own personal preference, oh and not to forget the abundance of stunning models CD Projekt RED has graciously allowed everyone to use from the Witcher 2.
This mod would not have been possible without the resources allowed yo us without CD Projekt RED..
I am not attempting to reduce the amount of fantasy within the cannon of Skyrim, merely inject more of what I perceive to be realism. To me "realism" does enrich a work of fiction.
As for my "re-interpretation of the Lore" well by this I mean that in my opinion I will just be changing the flavour, rather than changing the drink.. Maybe not explained all that well, but if you keep checking back I am sure the pictures will tell more then the words I can muster.
This has now become an open source project with various members of the modding community here on the Nexus taking the lead. The original project was abandoned by my self, however good work with a similar philosophy/Credo to what I had when undertaking this project is still being worked on...
Some of the work completed by my self has been uploaded to the Nexus, easily found by searching "Credo"
