Aether Suite 3.5.0 – Operation Helheim

Aether Suite v3.5.0

Just when I thought I was done with the S;G naming references, someone gave me a whole other game’s worth of operation names.

So, this update is a little more minor than the previous ones, but it’s kind of not. To be more precise, I’ve only added a few new aethernet dashes, and 1 apartment in terms of new locations. However, I’ve also added a ton of new clothing and accessories in both House of Dibella and Town Vanguard.

  • Added Apartment 2-10
  • Added Alyssa’s Aethernet Dash
  • Added Kaori’s Aethernet Dash
  • Added Aloha’s Aethernet Dash
  • Added Lily’s Aethernet Dash 2
  • Added Faria’s Aethernet Dash
  • Added Senpai’s Aethernet Dash
  • Added Shiki’s Aethernet Dash
  • Added Sasaki’s Aethernet Dash
  • Extensively expanded House of Dibella’s inventory
  • Extensively expanded Town Vanguard’s inventory
  • Expanded the Alpha Attractor Field
  • So, most apartments now have an aethernet dash, basically. Not quite all, but most. For those of you who still haven’t found Town Vanguard, I’m feeling festive today, so I’ll tell you, it’s in the Wet Alley, just by the back entrance to the Red Robin, but only in the Alpha Attractor Field after you activate the Denwa Renji (Kakko Kari). Also, don’t forget to pick up your free Upa Backpack! If you can figure out how and where, that is.

    A quick reminder that all clothing in the Aether Suite is female only and for the UNPCM body type, because that’s what I make/port stuff for, because that’s what I use.

    Here’s the download: Download

      Noir vest mesh has an invalid texture path and no texture set is assigned to supersede it; this is not a complaint, just a report. Thanks for sharing.

      • Halofarm December 28, 2016 10:06 am  Reply

        It would be a valid complaint. lol. I just put a fix in the post. It’s such a small thing I’m not gonna make a big deal out of fixing it. You can either install that or it’ll just be fixed next release.

      Thanks for the additional work. When you mentioned that you were feeling “festive” – I was hoping that you might post some of your followers so we could shoot some holiday themed screens in your Aether Suite ;-)

        I don’t release followers any more, I’m afraid. Too many characters, too little time.

        • Ridell December 29, 2016 3:38 pm  Reply

          Actually the only one that I was looking for was Aloha – I tried to edit your Nim character as you said that was what you used for Aloha. However, I failed miserably on editing Nim’s custom eye parts to make them normal eyes. I was able to change everything else but the eyes with no prob using the CK. I tried several times as I like to be able to figure things out myself, but the last time I went to mess with the facegeom, nifskope etc it messed up characters in my game and I had to reinstall the whole damn thing :)

            I don’t intend to release her either. Nim’s facegen is out of date on the follower anyway. I’m not doing followers any more.

      Amazing mod, still on the previous version but will definitely check it out. Thanks for the tip to finding Town vangaurd, though im yet to find the Alpha attractor field, any clues?

      • Halofarm January 4, 2017 12:17 am  Reply

        It’s when you activate the Denwa Renji in the library lab.

        • Halp17 January 4, 2017 1:08 am  Reply

          Awesome, these areas are really detailed and look great with ENB. i really like how the story of knox is told though the finer details, though i wish the grander story was a bit more fleshed out… I must remind myself you are just 1 person :)

      • Hallodria January 26, 2017 5:45 pm  Reply

        Indeed, I also spent many hours unsuccessfully searching for a location by the name of Alpha Attractor Field. I wish the description would have been clear insofar as this is not an actual cell.

        • Halofarm January 26, 2017 6:21 pm  Reply

          It wouldn’t be a very good secret if I’d told you exactly how to get there…

    5. Halp17 January 4, 2017 1:27 am  Reply

      I activated the Denwa Renji, but other than unlock Town vangaurd I dont get how its related to the alpha attractor feild and the second world line?

      • Halofarm January 4, 2017 9:39 am  Reply

        A lot of things in Knox changed when you did that. Not just Town Vanguard. There are something like 5 or 6 new locations, some major aesthetic changes, and a few little easter eggs which only appear (or disappear) when you do that.

      Whoa…Hey Halo. Hope you had a good holiday.
      , I had tried to download your Aether suite Temp fix, but it failed, and told me that there was a virus detected… :/

        It’s not. Some things just flag 7z files from puush as such.

      Hey, great update as usual

      Would you mind telling me what is the location in the picture ? I can’t find it

      • Halofarm January 13, 2017 10:25 pm  Reply

        Carys’ Aethernet Dash, Library Lab.

        • Lewis January 14, 2017 7:53 am  Reply

          Well thanks, I had found it before you answered actually :)

          The thing is, I thought it was related to the ” Alpha Attractor Field ” which I’m still not able to find anywhere. It’s driving me crazy. I’ve looked every location even through the CK and there’s nothing I haven’t explored yet appart from the Substation Dashkor.

          I know you’ve said previously that you didn’t want to explain where it is. But can you at least tell me if it can be found using the CK or I’m wasting my time ? I can’t stand the idea of missing a location that you update everytime.

          Thanks :)

            I explained it here in these comments though. The alpha attractor field is what happens when you activate the Denwa Renji (Kakko Kari). A load of stuff in Knox changes. The stuff that appears is in the alpha attractor field.

      I just wanted to thank you for sharing the Aether Suite with us. My first trip around it had me picking up my jaw from the floor, as I had just been expecting a few rooms, or a street, and came a little late to the party.

      I’ve recently added a few NPCs in ‘modern’ clothes and those already in the mod to sandbox around, and a few Peacekeepers with guns to the occasional street corner. I don’t suppose you could recommend a ‘look’ for the Peacekeepers? The closest thing I could find to being suitable, looking at the posters, was the Crysis Nanosuit.

      • Halofarm January 29, 2017 11:26 pm  Reply

        Any generic full coverage black armour, I think would be about it, with some glowing parts for cyberpunk effect. Maybe some form of gas mask look on the helmet. Since I never planned to add them, because I’d have to make the armour by hand, I never got past a vaguely imagined outline.

      I have fully converted Aether Suite 3.5.0 to SSE but i might remove the Undercity area for copyright reasons if i upload it to the public.

        What? You have? aw dang, i hope halo gives you permission to upload it publicly

          Halofarm won’t be on SSE for awhile, so if you have any problems with it after i upload it to the public you will have to message me since he won’t be able to provide support for the SSE version.

        • MrReaperofDead February 7, 2017 5:41 am  Reply

          Hello Halo. :)
          Not sure if you’d do this or not, but for the t.v’s what would be cool, is if you made it so that it showed like a moving gif-like image, and gave out like a short broadcast or something if you were to turn them on or off.

          I just figure I’d throw that idea out there for you… :P

          • Halofarm February 7, 2017 9:51 am  Reply

            I could do that, but I won’t, because to make anything more than a few seconds would require a pretty massive texture with the way textures work in this game. At most, I could manage a second or two of a repeating image, which just doesn’t seem worth it.

            • MrReaperofDead February 8, 2017 4:57 am 

              Sure it does! :)
              What you could do is just simply have like one single image, then make the t.v. radiate, and have like sound or something come from it, like you do on Blake’s radio.
              Make the image as simplistic as possible, it wouldn’t have to be like a 4020 texture size.

      Halo, i cant believe how good Aether Suite is. Like seriously, tons, TONS of work, outfits, places, radio, sound, even a little horor game, damnit! It’s crazy how good this mod is. The level disign is exellent, and everything is polished and thinked of. Are you planning to fill it with NPC or something like that?

      • Halofarm March 2, 2017 12:14 am  Reply

        Nope, it’s just a screenshooting tool like any other, really.

        • Samu March 4, 2017 7:11 pm  Reply

          Actualy, if this place will be filled with NPC in appopriate clothing, this greatly help with posing, so players will not be forced to spawn and dress up NPC’s. You put so much lore in this plase. And “Undergrid” filled with dancing NPC and a sceleton bartender… oh my god, it’s a dream. All thoze characters you mention in the notes or in emails… they are real characters with backstory, and it will be awesome to see them, maybe just as follovers. This would have been so awesome to see Ivi or Senpai in their apartments. Well, maybe someone will make this, maybe as an expansion to your mod. Thnx again for it and all your other mods!

          P.s. Sorry if this sounded a little selfish, but my imagination is just shooting me with this images when i am exploring Aether Suite.

          P.p.s. And i am sorry for my bad english i am not a native speaker.

        I can’t say I’ve run into this issue. I’m sure it’s something to do with the first person meshes. I’ll look at it for the next update.

        In the meantime, are you using a custom race? It could be something to do with that as well. Custom races with incorrectly set armor slots/races sometimes make for weird results.

          I don’t use any custom race.

      just wanted to say I enjoy you're Aether suite and all its fancy little details.

      do you have a list of the music that is played in the background somewhere? its very enjoyable to listen to.

        Yes, the list is in the readme, with links. I had to turn up security because I was getting about 40 bots per day posting, since I don’t require sign up.

      • Halofarm March 20, 2017 10:16 am  Reply

        It’s in the wet alley. You need to make sure you activated the denwa renji in the library lab first. Then a lot of stuff about the world will change, and town vanguard will appear.

      Hey buddy, how’s it been going? :)
      I just had a little something I felt tjat I needed to possibly bring to your attention. Now i’ve been using and downloading your mods for a pretty long time. I love your style, the aether is a pretty cool place, so cool that even without npc, it’s very immersive.

      I also love the music that the wave radio plays, and Blake is a unique character, it has that whole ‘Fallout’ genre sound of music and stuff to it.
      However, this music comes from an old age and time, as ‘some’ of them tend to cling on to those ‘old’ ways of thinking. As in some are a tad bit racy.
      Some Caucasian singers bring up ‘mammie’ quite a few times actually, and ‘where the light folk and dark folk meet’ and hidey-hidey-hoo, most of these lines are being sung by white jazz singers.

      I have to state sadly that for me at least, who happen to be an African American, I get a little offended and off-putted by those lyrics. I’m sure there are a lot of other songs you can place in the game that bring the good vibe and don’t have those kind of lyrics, I am a huge old 1950s, even 1920s song listener and would be more than happy research a grand bit of suggestions, maybe even by the same singers, except they aren’t singing those ‘mammie’ lyrics in that song.
      :(

        I’m sorry, but there’s simply no way I’m going to change the track list on my radio station. It’s a completely optional element, so if it offends you, you can turn it off. There are plenty of things for people to be offended about in my mod. The sexualisation of women in the posters and artwork. The fact it has an entire section which plays on people’s fears. The fact it essentially has strip clubs. The complete lore-unfriendliness of it. I won’t change any of those parts either. This mod wasn’t made to be sensitive. It just is. Those songs were chosen because they’re catchy or melodic. I really don’t care about the lyrical content. Might not be the response you wanted, but that’s how it is.

    21. MrReaperofDead April 14, 2017 3:21 am  Reply

      I understand a little bit dude. :)
      As a writer and poet myself, i kinda invoke in touchy subjects, morality being one of them, and can relate on the situation of how others might not agree all the way with whst you create.
      It’s almost like the creaters of Family Guy (which my sister loves by the way 4 some reason).

      Not all may agree with that show, but some do, and enjoy the humor regardless.
      So both sides should be allowed to exercise that freedom of press amendment. It kinda is what it is.
