Halo's Poser S 1.1

And the everyone’s been waiting for, it’s a poser update!

In case anyone was wondering, the reason this hasn’t been updated in so long is because I hurt my back quite badly, not long after coming back from the US, so I wasn’t really modding much for quite a while. However, this update is bigger than the usual, so hopefully I’ll be forgiven.

Here’s the changelog:

  • Completed Halo’s Poser 11 module
  • Added and completed Halo’s Poser 12 module
  • Added and completed Halo’s Poser 13 module
  • Added and completed Halo’s Poser 14 module
  • Completed Halo’s Pairs 2 Module
  • Added 24 new object poses to Halo’s Objects Poser module
  • The object poses have made the install quite a bit bigger than it used to be, BUT, on the plus side, if you have the Aether Suite, or the Crap Chute (or both) installed, then the assets are intentionally in the same place to save space on duplicate files across mods.

    Other notes about this update:

  • The object poses are all lore unfriendly, they also still require vanilla scales. I hadn’t originally intended to release them, since they were made for a specific use, but I changed my mind.
  • Some of the new pair poses are different from the old style. To line them up, the characters need to be placed in the same position on the X, Y, and Z axes, and rotated the same as well. This means they only work in TFC 1 mode, or SGTM 0.lotsofzeros1. I don’t apologise for this, because it makes lining characters up A LOT easier.
  • There are a lot of poses in this update made to form. For example, pole dancing poses, smoking poses, some BDSM poses, and poses meant for sitting or leaning on various pieces of furnite, so not all of them will work straight out of the box.
  • All of that rambling said, here’s the download, and enjoy!


    Aether Suite v3.0.0

    It’s been a while since the last update, but hopefully this update won’t disappoint.

    I won’t bother with a ramble, here’s the changelog:

  • Added Hot Springs Hotel – accessed from the main lobby
  • Added Lily’s Apartment and Aethernet Dash – Accessed from Redoran Ward, and the bedroom, respectively. The Aethernet Dash is a highly configurable studio room
  • Added PI Office – accessed via Redoran Ward
  • Added Lilim’s Bunker – Accessed via the end of the Redoran Ward street. A partial, and quite mediocre replica of a certain location in a certain game
  • Overhauled Apartment 184 – The apartment is now split into separate cells for better lighting, has light switches, and a bathroom, and some changes, both small and big
  • Overhauled Finnegan’s Bar and Board – A few additions, a few changes. There’s a jukebox now. It’s really ugly.
  • Massive music overhaul – A lot of the music previously used in the Aether Suite was copyrighted. Music in new areas is all creative commons or licensed, and all previously used copyrighted music has been replaced with legal alternatives. You can find the full details on any music you might like in the readme
  • Other minor changes including nicer bottles, collision fixes on the streets to allow followers to get onto paths, and removal of accidentally used SMIM apples, in lieu of vanilla apples. Lots of other little things I can’t even remember.
  • Hopefully the update will be to everyone’s liking. And just a quick note to anyone who wants to complain that Knox is growing based around my characters: What do you expect? It’s literally my Skyrim dollhouse. See release name.

    Have fun!


    PS: Why the shit do I always sign my name? Of course it’s Halo. There isn’t anyone else who posts on this blog!

    The Crap Chute

    As the name implies, the crap chute is a pile of crap. A few things which have accumulated on my hard drive but don’t have any particular relation to anything. Custom items or weapons made for various characters or followers. I decided to put them into a pack, and release them.

    The pack contains:

    A Noodle inspired Cat Mask – as worn by RAMEN
    A fedora which probably won’t fit – As worn by Ramus
    A pair of pretty nice glasses – As worn by a host of my characters
    Gutter – A dagger
    Scythe – Previously of the Insanity’s Servator mashup
    Baton – Previously of the Ilara follower
    Black Bonemold Bow – Previously of the Chelly follower
    Rapier – Previously of the Lilim follower
    Riding Crop – Previously of the Lilim follower
    Vitriol and Vitriol Dagger – Previously of the Lilim Follower
    Tenderizer – Warhammer seen being wielded by Ru


    Have fun!


    Backsteppo's French Maid

    First things first, hi, it’s been a long time since I’ve dropped anything here, but I didn’t die.

    The 4 year anniversary of Skyrim is here in a couple of days so I wanted to drop some mods to honour the occasion. Since on the day itself I’ll likely be playing Fallout 4 and not giving a damn about Skyrim, I thought I’d post them today, while I’m still part of the world.

    First up, a conversion of Backsteppo’s French Maid dress from Fallout 3. I know we have the Osare maid outfit and all, but I just happen to prefer the look of this one, and it was there.

    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


    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.



    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

    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.

    EDIT: A new, sturdy PSU is on its way. MUCH THANKS to all who donated. You helped me get this situation solved a lot quicker than it otherwise would have been.

    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.


    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


    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.


    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!
