I'm sorry if this is a crummy request, but I haven't managed to find anything like what I'm hoping for besides a green variant. I tried figuring out how to change the colors myself, but after poking at the construction set and nifskope for awhile I've realized most of this goes over my head... 

Anyways, I just wanted to ask if anyone would be willing to make a darker/black recolor of the Emperor's robe. Again, sorry if this is awful or anything, I'm pretty new to modding.

If you have image-editing tools you can easily do it yourself and convert the images using the DDS converter and BMP to DDS softwares.

I don't understand how to *do* that though. I have GIMP somewhere on my device but I don't know what I'm looking for or what to edit.

With the mention green variant in your initial post, I suppose you've seen both of these?

Opening it in GIMP is the easy part. All the tools you need are linked from the Construction Set wiki (https://cs.elderscro...tle=Retex_Guide) and in a few minutes... boom

Trouble is I'm not good enough in GIMP to really do this justice without it looking sloppy.  :confused:  I think you might be able to use Color Exchange on this but I'm not sure. Maybe if I'm bored to tomorrow I might give it a shot. That's a big maybe though.

 

Edit: Messing around with the Hue-Saturation tool a bit this morning. Still looks royal purple but it's darker.

Yes, I've seen those two (The green/silver one in particular I thought was very well done) and the other lacks a black version. I also tried one called "Emporium" which had some recolors of the outfit but only purple and green if I remember right.

 

I'm barely passable with GIMP myself, but I'll take a look at the guide and see if I can figure it out. Thank you for linking that guide.

Sure thing. I actually got the idea to mess around with the Hue Saturation tool from this tutorial over at TESAlliance. Complete with pictures to help. Seems like it can be pretty useful. I started attacking the saturation and got a more black look.

With some effort I was able to put together something I'm pretty happy with. Thanks again for the help.
