Anya and Eriko

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.

Enjoy!

Aether Suite v0.2.5

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.

Aether Suite v0.2.5

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.

Sinestra

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.

Breezy

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.
