It’s been a while since one of these. This update’s a bit haphazard, but it’s pretty huge. Lots of new toys in lots of ways.
Here’s what’s been addeD:
Added and completed Halo’s Poser 18
Added and completed Halo’s Poser 19
Added and completed Halo’s Poser 20
Added and completed Halo’s Poser for Males
Added Halo’s Pair Poser 4 to half way (male/female)
Added and complete Halo’s Pair Poser 5
Added Halo’s Pair Poser 6 to 18 (9 pair poses)
Filled Halo’s Object Poser slots 66-77 (last 4 are still empty because they will be more panty poses in future)
Added Halo’s Object Poser 2 up to slot 31
Added Halo’s Beach Poser up to slot 59
Added a small few poses to Halo’s Silly Poser
There’s now a special Poser Hotkeys version of the mod in the archive
Overall, the new pose count is somewhere around 530. So lots of new stuff to play with. Things of actual note here, new male poses, after all that time. New object poses are attached to actual bones, and not the root, so they should work better for more customised body scales now. I’ve also updated some (not all yet) of the older object poses in the same way. On top of that, we’ve got some poses for crossbows, and some poses for magic.
Lastly, this will likely be the last poser update for a bit, because I want to see how things go with regards to SSE and modding it before choosing how to proceed with the future of Halo’s Poser. Or maybe that’s a lie and I’ll just keep updating as usual. Who knows? We’ll see what happens. With any luck, FNIS and Poser Hotkeys will get updated for SSE and it won’t matter which game I make the poses for as to if they’ll work. No promises in any directions though, things will be uncertain I’m sure, so please refrain from making “release it for SSE!” demands.
Another one? Yes. Another one. When you’re motivated, you just gotta keep going. It’s another pretty big one too. A lot of new stuff added. Some big, some small. Here’s the changelog:
Quadrupled the effective size of Ehlnofey’s Landing
Added Apartment 28-3
Added Apartment Block 92-A
Added Apartment 3-6
Added Apartment 4-9
Added May Queen Beep²
Added The Last Man Standing
Added The White Room
Added Unlocked Depository
Expanded the alpha attractor field
Optimised and overhauled various textures and meshes
Updated various locations to include some of the newer clutter
So lots of new bits and bobs to see this time. Some new unique locations again. In the interest of informing those of you who hadn’t realised what “expanded the alpha attractor field” actually means, it means that I’ve added new things or locations to the second world line. I’m not gonna tell you where or what they are, and you won’t find them on any of the maps. You have to do a little exploration to root them out. Just a little motivation for folks to really explore. Never know what you might find! I also did various optimisations and fixes again this time, so hopefully things are continuing to get easier on people’s GPUs (except Ehlnofey’s Landing, because it’s HUGE now, but actually my FPS there didn’t even change) and look better at the same time, since I’ve been replacing some of the older crappier textures and utilising different methods to provide better visual quality with lower res textures.
P.S. I’ve been trying not to go full beggar again but the next few months are gonna be serious money troubles for me, so if there are any kind souls out there who feel like donating to help pay for the server these next couple of months, I’d be mighty grateful. And a reminder, since I always like to mention it, donations or not, the site won’t go down and the mods won’t stop coming.
Also, please put in the comments if you’d like to be thanked, and if so, what you’d like me to call you by. No one ever notes it and I never know if people want to be thanked. I certainly don’t want to be thanking people by their real names!
It’s been a short time. Like a really short time. In fact, I checked the release history and this is the fastest AS update I’ve ever made. It’s not a small one either! What happened was that when I made the last AS release, I was kind of on a roll, so I just kept rolling figuring I’d have a little content already done for the next update, and I accidentally made a whole other update in record time. That’s a good thing though!
So here’s the changelog:
Added rainy day club building, accessed via rainy ACC
Expanded House of Dibella to finally include changing rooms, because I finally have curtains for that
Expanded the alpha attractor field
Added Ehlnofey’s Landing
Added Blue Butterfly Hotel Foyer
Added Blur Butterfly Floor 26 and Room 26-5
Added Apartment Block 75-B
Added Apartment 30-3
Added Apartment 33-2
Considerably expanded Town Vanguard’s inventory
Updated Redoran Ward to be slightly less empty
Relit Green Emperor Ward to try to fix the lighting glitches
Extensive tileset overhauls for Knox exteriors to fix long standing problems and optimise, so hopefully those of you with weaker machines will have less trouble in the exteriors now… hopefully
Updated the BGM in the lab
Various other major optimisations and fixes
I will say, a fair amount of the changes in this version are under the hood things, like the tileset optimisations, but I am hoping that folks running on older rigs will find Knox’s exteriors a little less crushing now, since between the new collision meshes and the mesh geometry optimisations, there should be less than half the geometry rendering on your screens now. I hope it’s meaningful enough to make a difference to people with weaker graphics cards.
And yeah, I thought it was about time for a new area, so we have Ehlnofey’s Landing. Check the updated maps for locations of new things.
Without further talking of shit, here’s the download: Download
It’s been a long time. Like a really long time. I didn’t realise it’d been 8 months since my last AS update, so it’s a good job I had one good to go!
A lot has happened in the AS over the past few months. A lot of bits and bobs. A lot of “I’ll just make this one thing” locations. It took a while, but I suddenly realised I had enough content for probably TWO AS updates. I’d just been forgetting to release. Ultimately, my fanboy side took the reigns and you got an update fuelled by fanboy excitement.
Here’s the changelog:
Added rainy day Academy
Renovated the ACC – Swimming Pool
Massively overhauled Knox layout and naming schemes (see maps)
Added a set of maps! (in the download)
Added the Black Streets
Added Apartment Block 33-A
Added Apartment 7-5
Added Apartment 10-6
Added Apartment G-5
Added My Apartment
Added Lilim’s Aethernet Dash
Added Septim Public Library, Library Lab, Library Residence
Added Book Club Aethernet Dash
Added alpha attractor field. Made various levels of overhaul and under the hood alterations and improvements
That’s the shortlist. There’s more I haven’t mentioned. Quite a bit more, actually, but you’ll just have to find it for yourself.
Most importantly, I’ve added a set of maps in jpg format to the download, so for those of you who gave up on exploring Knox because you were getting lost, now you’ve got a map! The bad news is that older users who’ve been using Knox all along might have to use those maps too, because Knox’s layout has pretty radically changed with this release, since I wanted it to make geographical sense.
Second most importantly, you now have an apartment. It’s the new entrance point into Knox, and it’s linked up to the main hub (Red Robin Plaza) instead of half a mile down a wet alley. I know some people will appreciate not having to run half of Tamriel just to get to the rest of the city.
Regarding the bug you’ll sometimes get activating the Denwa Renji (Kakko Kari), I know about it. It’s not a problem I can fix. It’s a stupid thing with Skyrim’s engine that I have absolutely no workaround for. If you leave the room and come back, it’ll go away. It’s related to how the cell buffer works.
Lastly, due to how much I’ve changed in this release, you might get some oddities if you don’t clean install it. I’m not saying you have to, because it has worked fine for me without doing so, but if anything pops up, that’s the solution.
Now that I’m done waffling, here’s the download: Download
P.S. Cracked the 1gb download size this time as well. That’s a landmark. Maybe not a good one, but it’s a landmark.
I know I’m not nisetanaka, but his bikini armors are so damned good, it inspired me to take a crack at it myself. I hadn’t intended to release it publicly, but it ended up having about 3 times as many parts as I’d intended and I just kind of said “fuck it, I guess I’ll release it”.
You can see all the available options in the screenshots, and the readme tells you how to get it (or you can just use AddItemMenu like I know you all do). It was fun to make. Might make another.
And yes, I know I copied nisetanaka’s configuration. It was intentional. A respectful imitation of the best.
There are some alt cubemap options for people who don’t like the pure silver look, including vanilla style, if you prefer that vanilla dulled look.
Anyway, no more talking, have a download, also grab the recommended file for it to look like the pics.
Version 3? Yes. Version 3. I know I keep on releasing updates for these things and it’s awkward, but I keep noticing ways to improve them (the feet, that is). Like I noticed the messed up UV map on the seam, so I fixed that (mostly) and then I noticed the COMPLETE LACK OF ANKLES, so I fixed that too.
Also, I added 7BO support, so there’s that. Kicked the XPMSE versions because they were confusing people and honestly I’ve never seen anyone use the toe bones. All it did was make the weighting more awkward.
It’s my birthday today, and as such I decided to get YOU GUYS a present. It’s not much, but it’s the thought that counts.
Here’s what’s been added:
Added and completed Halo’s Poser 16 module.
Added and completed Halo’s Poser 17 module.
So that’s 162 new poses. HP16 is the usual sexy pose business, but HP17 is a little more special. HP17 is made up entirely, all 81 poses, by weapon poses. Some are left handed, some are right handed, some are dual wielding. I can’t guarantee they’ll all work perfectly with every sword, because all swords are designed differently, ESPECIALLY modded ones, but what I can say is there are plenty of poses to have a look through.
Oh, and I restored the old white panties texture I’d accidentally made black in the last release.
And it just wouldn’t be Christmas day without a poser update.
Here’s a list of what’s new:
Added and completed Halo’s Poser 15 module.
Added and completed Halo’s Pairs 3 module.
Added 7 new threesome poses. These ones, unlike the previous threesome poses, are not explicit.
Added a few new object poses to the object poser.
So that’s the basic list, but some of you will be happy to hear that a significant chunk of HP15 is made up of right handed/2 handed weapon poses, since I know there’s been a severe lack of weapon poses in my recent posers. There’ll be more poses to expect for other weapon types (well, mostly just dual wielding and left handed) in upcoming updates too.
And before I give you the download, just another quick reminder that if you want all your poses to actually work properly, you need to load Halo’s Poser AFTER xpmse.esp.
