Noob here (to modding and forums) so if I did something wrong (posted in the wrong area?) please let me know how to correct.
I use a circlet helms mod to get armor bonuses without ugly helms, which suits most of my needs (I have amazingly managed to fix one or two set bonus issues with it by blindly stumbling around the Creation Kit before.) However, it doesn't have every outfit (specifically, a Fur Circlet as an alternative to Fur Helmet.) What I'd like to do in the Creation Kit seems simple, but I've never actually modded before, so I don't know what to do and I'm a little scared of breaking something in my game.
I'd like to create a clone/copy of Fur Helmet with identical stats, replace the look of it (or do I have to do something else so the game knows its a light armor circlet and not a light armor helmet?) with a circlet (any of the default circlet's looks will do,) and make it a new light armor circlet. This should insure that it gets the set bonus for the armor yet not muck up my look. Is this simple enough for me to do on my own, or should I head over to the mod request forum? Also, it'd be nice to set the crafting recipe as requiring one Fur Helmet, but a no recipe add with console command method will suffice.
I would love a Step-By-Step explanation, but any help would certainly be appreciated.
