So, my PSU blew up. I got back from 3 weeks away from home, tried to get things up and running, and it shit out on me.

Any donation help would be greatly appreciated. Kind of an emergency. Sorry to beg for money again so soon, but I’m broke and my PC’s dead. When I was asking for donations to cover the server, I sure didn’t see this one coming. I will be able to keep modding and shooting though, since I have a laptop. Some updates coming in the next few days, actually.

Aether Suite v2.8.0

This update is pretty all over the place. I haven’t made any one big thing, instead, I’ve made lots of little things. Well, okay, not so little, but they’ll probably seem little to anyone using the mod.

Here’s the changelog:

  • Made Arbelle’s apartment an entire living space, complete with sitting room, kitchen, and bathroom.
  • Created a new minor hub area called Redoran Ward. Accessed from Red Robin Plaza.
  • Added an abandoned school, accessed from Redoran Ward. Key found in Undergrind Office.
  • Added a club, The Undergrind, accessed from Redoran Ward. Try pressing the switch behind the bar. Might have to press it twice. It doesn’t usually work first time.
  • Added the House of Dibella on Main Street. HOD sells all the armor and weapons previously found in Finnegan’s, and lots of custom versions of Hepsy’s Basic Wears, plus panties and socks.
  • Various fixes minor fixes.
  • Quite a lot of work went into this one, but it doesn’t particularly show, due to the small amount of content it actually added.

    The Aether Suite now comes with 3 warnings. Trigger warning, for disturbing images or situations in the nightmare portion, for those of you with severe phobias. Flashing/strobing lights warning in the undergrind, for those of you with photosensitive epilepsy. NSFW warning in the undergrind, for those of you who are… I dunno, I just know there was technically no NSFW content until now.

    Here’s the download: Download

    Also, I know I seem to say “give me money” a lot lately, but anyone who might have a buck to spare, I’d appreciate it. My PSU broke down and my desktop is out of action, so I’m trying to get a new one ASAP. Just anyone who feels like helping, I’m grateful.

    Halo.

    EDIT: There were a couple of bugs in this release. The black jeans textures go to the original basic wears folder. If you don’t have basic wears, you’ll get missing textures. Also when you leave house of dibella you end up inside a window.

    Since I don’t release hotfixes, if you want to fix these issues, you’ll have to redownload the whole thing.

    HTools

    HTools

    Okay, so, I released HFeet a while back. It was PLAGUED with issues like odd sharp bits, and me forgetting to weight the feet to a normal, non-XPMSE skeleton. Also the first version didn’t work right for vanilla races.

    So now, I’ve completely remade the original HFeet foot types, I’ve added 3 new types, and I’ve combined HFeet with HTongues, and now we have HTools!

    Now, the thing to remember about HFeet, a small bug which a few folks have mentioned to me, in some lights, some of the foot types will look odd. This is not a problem with the feet meshes, or your textures. It’s related to how the engine handles the _msn texture applied to your feet. It’s not something that can be fixed, so I’m afraid you just have to put up with it.

    I won’t ramble any more, because I’ve got more mods to release, so here’s the DL: HTools

    Aether Suite v0.2.7.0

    Here we are again. The ever expanding Aether Suite has expanded some more, though this release isn’t just about expansion.

    There are a couple of big things about this release, and it was tough for me to actually decide which was actually of greater importance. Either way, it’s all important in the scheme of things!

    Here’s your changelog:

  • Added the nightmare. Accessed via a small apartment through one of the doors in the Red Robin Plaza.
  • Overhauled the main area of Arclite Community College, and partially overhauled the club building. Roughly 75% of the main area has been rebuilt from the ground up, using a newly made tileset.
  • Some small tweaks have been made in a few places in Knox.
  • Now I know, that doesn’t look like much. It’s only a list of 3 things. However, the nightmare is a linear series of cells, which I actually recommend you PLAY start to end before you think about using them to take any kind of pictures. It’s the only part of the Aether Suite so far with any kind of a linear drive to it. It’s about a 30 minute experience. Could be 20 if you’re lucky and also miss out on some stuff. Could be an hour, if you’re very unlucky. It’s very much inspired by some of my favourite horror game experiences. I don’t want to say too much about it, because I think too much foreknowledge might ruin the experience. What I will say though is don’t miss the torch. Some of you might have light spells or vanilla torches sitting around, but that torch is the best way to play it, preferably in first person, because third person seems to refuse to use torch anims, no matter what kind of crazy things I do to work around it.

    The school, on the other hand, if I’ve done my job right, no one should even think anything has changed, except for a subtle improvement in overall quality. I made a completely new tileset for the shell of the college. New walls. The old walls and the college in general was built when I was just starting to get to know the CK and its quirks. As a result it was plagued with little holes in the walls, floors, and ceilings, and some not very well made tiles, or tiles that didn’t even fit properly into the grid, such as the stairwells, which were bloody awful. The point of my overhaul was not to alter the school, but just to fix all of its inherent problems. I made completely new stairwells which are MUCH nicer. I optimised a lot of the way the building is designed. The new tiles all fit nicely into a 64 unit grid and slot together like lego, so there should be no tiny gaps in the walls, or under the windows, or next to the doors. All in all, it should just FEEL better to be in.

    Anyway, enough with my rambling.

    Here’s the warning that the AS now comes with: THIS MOD CONTAINS IMAGES AND SITUATIONS WHICH SOME PLAYERS MAY FIND DISTURBING. IF YOU ARE EASILY UPSET OR HAVE SEVERE FORMS OF ANY COMMON PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGERS, PLEASE BEWARE OF THE NIGHTMARE PORTION OF THIS MOD.

    This warning is not a joke. I had to apologise to one of my testers because they had quite a severe reaction and couldn’t actually finish testing the mod. It goes as much for this mod as it does for any psychological horror game.

    And here’s the download link: Download

    Halo.

    P.S. A MASSIVE thank you to donators! The original donation request didn’t actually get much attention, so when I made my second one, I didn’t really keep track of its progress, but the response was massive! Not only did I get enough to cover the few summer months I was originally aiming for, there’s enough money in the server pot now to cover the next TEN months. The donation button will remain, but now anyone donating is basically just buying me ice cream (or games? Or a newer, less cruddy GPU?), so seriously, unless you really specifically want to donate, there’s no need.

    HFeet

    So we had HTongues, now it’s time for HFeet. I might not be able to make you poses which pose the toes, but I can damn sure give you a few pre-posed feet to have fun with!

    So what is this? It’s basically the same kind of thing as HTongues. Equippable stuff for screenshooting purposes. These are some cutely posed feet to equip when you’re doing a pose you think they’d look good in.

    There are 5 types to choose from, left foot, right foot, or both feet at once. Sadly, you can’t mix and match, because fuck Skyrim, that’s why. The mechanics of that turned out to be either impossible, or you’d end up stuck with about 60 equippable foot meshes. Sorry to say they’re FEMALE ONLY. So only waifus get cute toes.

    Anyway, you’ll find these in a little barrel on the sharpening wheel in QAsmoke. Happy toes!

    P.S. Blah blah donations server summer costs etc.

    High Poly Hands and Feet v2

    Ta-daaaa. So I’ve been working on these babies for a little while. There’s quite a lot in this update, so I’m gonna put it in handy bullet format for you.

  • Added compatibility for bombshell based 7B body types
  • Added XPMSE foot types, weighted to toe bones. These versions are generally weighted better, even if you don’t have animations which animate the toes. I recommend them over the non-XPMSE ones, as long as you have XPMSE installed.
  • Merged the nails on both the hands and feet. This is for compatibility with racemenu overlays, amongst other things.
  • Made the feet a little thinner at the front to appear slightly more feminine.
  • Reweighted non-XPMSE foot types as well, similarly to XPMSE types, but without the extra toes, so the weights are more basic.
  • Combined toenail resources into main file. IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE THEM, THEN DON’T USE THEM.
  • And with that, here’s the link. Enjoy your new feet!

    P.S. Begging for donations for server for the summer etc. etc.

    More UNPCM Stuff

    Okay, so, more UNPCM stuff for the UNPCM library. Couple of conversions, and something which I personally am pretty damn happy about porting from Fallout 3.

    The conversions are Emfy Cleric and Tembtra Thief. More of those awesome mashups from everybody’s favourite masher upper.

    The new thing though, the port is Backsteppo’s PE Dress from Fallout 3. I’ve been eying this one for porting for a long time, and someone reminded me about it the other day, so I immediately jumped on it. I didn’t just port it though. Aside from the fact that the main dress clips like mad which makes it hard for screenshooting, I figured there was potential here for some cool variations, so I made them. I added some red and red and black colour variations, a mini version of the dress, and a matching version of petrovich’s high heels, for a little more choice in the heels.

    P.S. Still begging for donations to cover the server for the summer months.

    Amulet of Stendarr

    Ran into this one the other day when I was transferring old stuff over to my new Skyrim install. It’s a high poly Amulet of Stendarr, with a nice texture mod by Eiries. Since it doesn’t really belong in any of my other mods, and it’s not meant for a specific body mod, I just figured I’d release it by itself.

    Also, it’s for BOTH genders. I know right? Me supporting males. Unbelievable.

    Conversions

    Okay, so this post is your run of the mill list of some new conversions.

    Added to the library this time, I’m pretty happy to announce we have a couple of the nsk13 mashups, which I think anybody would be happy to receive.

    Additions this time are:

  • nsk13’s Sotteta Necromancer Outfit
  • nsk13’s Merta Assassin Armor
  • Petrovich’s Simply Clothes (which I’ve been meaning to get done for MONTHS)
  • Sotteta: Download | Screenshots | Requirement
