I know I keep mentioning the followers, but to give something a little more concrete, I am going to be extremely busy for the next couple of weeks. However, my easter recess begins March 19th, so from then on, I’ll have around 2 weeks, in which I intend to release at least 1 follower a day, until I run out of followers to update/make.
Also, thanks to everyone who donated. It was an incredibly successful request, and the server is now paid for up until the 1st of June. You guys are awesome. Incidentally, I only get real names when I receive donations, so if anyone wishes to be mentioned, please let me know with the username you wish to be thanked by. I don’t want to just throw up people’s real names all over my blog.
Plenty of people will have noticed missing textures on the objects. I was in such a rush to get stuff released before bed, I forgot to include the textures in the poser.
Should be fixed now.
So, some more Aether Suite updating. Nothing big this time, but it is something some folks might have been waiting (or hoping?) for. It’s a small expansion to the academy.
Added the night classrooms. A couple of classrooms and also a reasonable sized relaxation room. They’re basically duplicates of the classrooms in the main school, except this time with interior lighting, which is important, k?
Added the societies building. 4 small rooms meant for groups too small to be clubs. They’re pretty cushy, but what do you expect when no one has to really pay for it?
They’re not a huge expansion, but I felt like it was a big enough update that people might want it, especially since it’s been over a year since I did anything to the academy except replace some of the crappy textures.
Something something donations for server.
P.S. I haven’t forgotten about the followers, but I’m struggling for time a bit at the moment, so it’s gonna take a bit longer than originally expected. Bear with me. I WILL get them all up eventually.
So this poser update isn’t a very big one, I just decided while I was releasing other minor updates, I’d release this too.
Mod is now standalone. One or two people have asked in the past how to make it standalone, and it’s only because I didn’t want to pack up the scripts from PP, but it doesn’t really hurt anyone if I do, so now you don’t actually need PP to use Halo’s Poser.
Changed the scripts to automatically disable FootIK when you do a pose. That means the feet with DO THE RIGHT THING now when you pose. For those of you who liked it when the legs did stupid stuff, just don’t install the updated scripts folder.
Added Halo’s Object Poser with 18 poses. 9 panties and 9 towels. These poses will work in varying degrees depending on things like body type, weight slider, and skeleton scales. They’re there for the possibility of use. Whether you have any success with them is another matter.
Added Halo’s Silly Poser with 9 poses. Silly poser is exactly what it says. Silly poses. It only has 9 poses right now though.
Added Halo’s Pairs 2 with 18 pair poses. All lewd.
Added 7 more poses to Halo’s Poser 8.
And again, for anyone who missed in the other posts, I’d appreciate donations so I can keep the server running this month.
Enjoy the poses!
Yeah, I know, it’s been ages and all I have to show for myself is 5 outfits, but hey, that more than doubles the previous 4! At least I chose some pretty popular ones this time.
Added to the pack are:
-Dark Brotherhood Shrouded Robes
-Dark Brotherhood Shrouded Armor
-Fur Armor/Bandit Armor 3 (Yeah, just 3. It was converted for Alvhilde, but obviously I’m adding it to the pack too!)
-Forsworn “Armor” (Optional addition, because I deleted those nasty looking feathers so it’s technically a remodel)

Also, I’m stoney broke and need to pay for the server, so I am begging for donations, if anyone has a septim to spare.
Well, I said I’d be updating old followers AND releasing some new ones, so here’s a 2-in-1 for you. Anya and Eriko.
Succubus sisters. They come as a pair. They’re both extremely pale, so they might just look flat and crap in your game, depending on your ENB. No special textures here, since they’re pretty standard stuff. Archive comes with optional dry textures for Eriko, if you’re not into the sweaty look.
Okay, so, after having some people test the new areas of the mod, I released it, and then this morning, one of my friends discovered some missing textures, which I assumed were corrupt somehow. Turns out they were, because BSA archives have a 2.1gb file size limit. Great.
FROM NOW ON THE AETHER SUITE WILL CONTAIN LOOSE FILES AND NOT A BSA. It’s just easier that way.
FOR ANYONE WHO DOWNLOADED YESTERDAY’S UPDATE, DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THIS ONE INSTEAD.
ANYONE UPDATING FROM ANY PREVIOUS VERSIONS, INCLUDING YESTERDAY’S RELEASE, BE SURE TO DELETE THE “AETHER SUITE.BSA” FILE FROM YOUR DATA FOLDER.
Here’s the download again: http://mod.dysintropi.me/mods/Skyrim/Aether%20SuiteC.7z
And my apologies for causing you guys trouble. I had no idea there was a bsa size limit.
Another Aether Suite update so soon? Why yes, yes it is. This update incorporates a project I worked on for a very long time but never ended up completing. Something that was quite important to me. I’d been working on and off making up Ayleid assets and recreating some of the tileset from Oblivion from scratch. The important part about it was that I was using the Ayleid textures created by Qarl.
I imagine a lot of you out there in the TES modding community only joined with Skyrim. For those of you who don’t know who Qarl was, he was incredibly well known in both the Morrowind and Oblivion modding communities for his mods, especially his texture overhauls. He created the biggest, and still in my opinion the best texture overhaul for Oblivion, and anyone getting into Oblivion today would likely be using his Qarl’s Texture Pack 3 mod. Qarl died in 2013, and when I found out I began work on a mod incorporating some of his textures. Originally it was to be a follower and quest mod which would have a long forgotten Ayleid ruin found on the Skyrim border as the final dungeon. As you can all tell, it was never released, but I still wanted to make use of the assets, and bring Qarl’s name into the Skyrim modding community, and this is how I decided to do it. I’d been planning to add a Knox undercity for some time, and when I thought about it, it just seemed to fit.
So what do you need to know about this update? Well, the important part is that anyone who might have mastered their own esp to the Aether Suite in the past will find it broken. Because I merged 2 mods into 1 here, the reference IDs were renumbered, and this will break any mods based on the Aether Suite. It will also send any saved games in the Aether Suite back to the Riverwood Inn. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE WHO HAS ANY FOLLOWERS SITUATED IN THE AETHER SUITE CLEAN THEIR SAVE GAMES OF THE OLD VERSION BEFORE UPDATING.
Other changes include the fact that the warrens doors are ALL locked now, and the keycard is now found inside Arbelle Ephienne’s desk, in her office. The undercity can be accessed via the newly created warrens block 3.
Here’s the download: http://mod.dysintropi.me/mods/Skyrim/Aether%20SuiteC.7z
Most importantly this release is dedicated to Qarl. I hope his name will carry on with the TES modding community, in one way or another, for years to come.
Enjoy the update.
So recently, I took down my character followers. I did it quietly, and without complaint, but apparently some other folks decided to make a big announcement about it. Reason was, I was pretty unhappy with how often they were getting downloaded just so people could take their textures, or other unique assets.
So I took them down, and had a good think about what to do regarding the matter, and originally I was just gonna leave them offline and that was gonna be that, but then I figured I could do something much better.
Instead of taking them permanently offline, I’ve begun updating them all to their current versions. They’re no longer packaged into bsa files, which makes it much easier for people to get any custom assets out of them they might want, and any follower with unique textures will also have a separate download specifically for their related texture pack, so you don’t need to go to the trouble of downloading the whole follower. They will come with low res textures as default, with optional high res ones in the same archive.
So over the next few weeks, they’ll be coming back one by one, as I update them with their relevant high poly heads, and I’ll also be adding some (not all, there are a couple I don’t want out in the wilds) of my newer characters as well. The only exception is Nala, who I don’t actually have on my PC any more, since I deleted her. I do have a backup of the old follower files sitting on here though, so if there’s demand for her, I can put her back up.
Also, the character followers page has been updated as well, since I’ve chosen a new presentation format for it, and the mods are now being hosted on my main modding domain.

Christmas day part 2! An Aether Suite update. Anyone who’s been keeping track of the numbers might guess it’s a pretty big one. We jumped from 0.1.6 to 0.2.0.
See below for the substantial list of changes, which I doubt anyone was expecting.
-Added area Red Robin Plaza
-Added area Children of Talos Chapel
-Added area Arbelle Ephienne’s Office
-Added area Apartment 184
-Added radio station Wave Radio
-Countless other small updates, upgrades, and fixes which are too small to mention.
WAVE RADIO. I don’t know how many of you played Fallout New Vegas, and I’m sure even less of you used my mod, but Wave Radio carries a legacy well past Skyrim.
A few instructions about Wave Radio, since I don’t think I put any in the readme.
-There area couple of radios in Knox which are separate from the main station and will only play within the cell you activate them.
-To activate Wave Radio, equip the mini-radio found in Apartment 184. To turn it off, unequip the radio.
-Wave Radio (the main station) replaces your background music, so if you have your in-game music turned down, you won’t be able to hear it.
Oh, and one other note. The apartment WILL crash for some people. I’ve had some folks test it. It doesn’t crash as all for some, it crashes occasionally for others, and a lot for others. I can’t pinpoint the cause, I’m afraid. Maybe try installing HDT memory patch? That fixed it for me.
That’s the skinny, and Christmas is over. Sorry I didn’t have more to deliver, but I am only one man, and I’m no Santa Clause.
Merry Christmas to everyone! And a big thanks to Chilliblitz who single handedly donated enough to cover my server this month.
