Aether Suite 3.7.0 – Operation Eldhrimnir

Aether Suite v3.7.0

To finish out Christmas day, it’s my favourite part, the Aether Suite update. So hands up those of you who were starting to think I’d abandoned the Aether Suite. It’s been exactly 1 year since the last release. I’m sure some of you were getting worried. Worry not! Have I got an update for you!

The last year has seen me working on lots of little updates one by one for the AS, and by the time I realised I had enough ready for a release, it was nearly time for the Christmas rush of getting an update ready, so naturally, I just saved it all for Christmas, and made even more on top of that. Here’s the changelog:

  • Updated existing apartments to a character names system instead of numbering (as per the results of the poll I took a while back).
  • Updated Sasaki’s Aethernet Dash with switchable main area.
  • Updated May Queen with an expanded layout and new lighting to make it less useless for screenshooting.
  • Updated PI Office to bring it in line with more recent locations.
  • Added new room to the Blue Butterfly Hotel, next door to the existing room.
  • Added new side room to The Undergrind.
  • Added Boss’ Hideout, accessible from Ehlnofey’s Landing, near the north east exit.
  • Added storeroom, apartment, and bedroom to the Last Man Standing.
  • Added Yanabayashi Park, accessible from Ehlnofey’s Landing, south east exit (your GPU may need some preparation H for this one).
  • Added Warehouse, accessible from Ehlnofey’s Landing, north east exit.
  • Added Solitude’s Accord, accessible from Ehlnofey’s Landing, north exit.
  • Added House of Dibella – Solitude’s Accord, accessible from Solitude’s Accord.
  • Added Mountain Flower Apartments, Floor 16, and B1, accessible from Solitude’s Accord.
  • Added Club Accord, accessible from Solitude’s Accord (attractor field).
  • Added Iliac Ward – Side Street, accessible from Solitude’s Accord east exit.
  • Added Ramen Shop, and Ramen Shop Residence, accessible from Iliac Ward – Side Street.
  • Added Black Market – Accessible from Iliac Ward – Side Street, south exit.
  • Added The Lone Magician, accessible from Black Market.
  • Added “home”, accessible from ACC Club Building – Rainy, east exit.
  • Added new cell to the Hot Springs Hotel, accessible from the “rooms”.
  • Added Fudge’s Apartment – Accessible from Floor 16 of Mountain Flower Apartments.
  • Added Lesaile’s Apartment – Accessible from Floor B1 of Mountain Flower Apartments.
  • Added Imi’s Apartment, accessible from Apartment Block basement.
  • Added Eve – Accessible from Ramen Shop.
  • Added new inventory to House of Dibella (Green Emperor Ward).
  • Added (different) new inventory to House of Dibella (Solitude’s Accord).
  • Added new inventory to Town Vanguard.
  • Added new inventory to The Lone Magician.
  • Added new song tracks to all music playlists, particularly the ones used in apartments.
  • Other miscellaneous under the hood improvements and fixes.
  • So, hopefully it’s big enough to please everyone after this long absence! Reminder to everyone that “Attractor Field” locations can only be accessed after you flip on the Denwa Renji (Kakko Kari) in the Library Lab.

    Another note as well, remember that all clothing for the AS is female only and designed for the UNPCM body. Sorry to the people playing males.

    And a Merry Christmas to everyone!

      You know, this thing is quite interesting. You can make it lore friendly easily by making it an alternate reality of the real Tamriel. A futuristic type world, knowing how the God’s head and CHIM works. You can easily give a reason to this world exist. Can not be real but a “Posibility of many” in the reality of Nirn. Canonically speaking there are diferent dimensions and the spell you use can be a dimension transporter or something. You will be surprised but TES lore is Fantasy sure but has a lot Science Fiction stuff and mindfuck stuff like a base in one of the moons and mindcontrol larvas from a flying city. A lot of stuff is not known in the lore. I always wanted to see a futuristic version of tamriel, that would be cool.

        It is an AU. The story of Knox is based around a series of events happening after the Oblivion crisis where Jyggalag slowly begins to push his order across Nirn.

      Halo – hope you had a great Christmas and cheers for a great 2018! I know the answer will be a resounding “no” before I say this, but …damn…you make such fine looking models, it would be off the charts if you could include one of your models in each of their named apartments. Had to ask… Maybe a cool looking old guy making noodles in your Ramen shop as well…and some Studio Ghibli looking characters floating about – haha!

      • Halofarm December 30, 2017 9:42 am  Reply

        Well, it’s a resounding “no” anyway, but particularly since I know who owns the ramen shop, and it’s not an old guy. It’s a youngish heavily tattooed woman.

      Imagine my joy when, after three weeks away from Skyrim, I find this Christmas present. Great work as always Halo!

      I do have a stupid question though – Imi’s Apartment is in an Apartment Block basement, but which one?

      • Halofarm January 7, 2018 8:42 am  Reply

        Only one apartment block has a basement, and it’s the one “My Apartment” is in. I didn’t feel like checking the name because you literally just have to turn left out of your own apartment to get to it.

        • TJHammersmith January 8, 2018 10:31 am  Reply

          Thanks for that. I was off exploring the new bits, so I didn’t think the apartment would be in the place I started. :)

      Your new version is well used.
      But I have a problem. shoot in glass room [white, blue,shadow play2,shuttered]

      A transparent film appears around the character. It makes shooting difficult.

      • Halofarm January 9, 2018 6:22 pm  Reply

        That’s the refraction shaders on the glass. It makes the glass look more glassy, but it makes a halo around the character.

      Hello Halo!
      I’ve been making some things I’ve personally added to Aether Sutie and with your current update I’ve used the Angel Persona armor you’ve added to the town vanguard to make a follower/ spell for skyrim: I kinda stole Aloha’s nameyou can check it out here :

      My other mod with NPCs (summons) added to the Children of Talos for the player to choose:

      Thank you for your mods and the inspiration they’ve given me to learn how to mod! Your work is amazing!

      I’m also adding more NPCS to Aether Suite based on presets I’ve released on the Nexus too… I totally turned the Under Grind into a gay night club ahaha!
      If you don’t mind please release the lore for some of the characters we see on your site for instance What’s Aloha’s Bio and others featured in Aether Suite?

      Thanks for reading my super long comment and thank you note ;D

      • Halofarm January 15, 2018 10:37 pm  Reply

        Well, I usually add new clothes, and not new styles of existing ones. The only time I added new styles of existing stuff was recently since I added some Nisetanaka tee-shirts.

      • VValentour January 16, 2018 12:01 am  Reply


        You can always open up creation kit duplicate the armor addon for the hoodie and add a new texture yourself!

        I’ve used the Children of Talos church window textures to add more hoodies :)

        • Halofarm January 16, 2018 8:18 am  Reply

          That’s true. There are even psd base files in the original Oblivion mod that the hoodies came from.

      This is amazing! I had the slightly older version and fell [literally, I fell] in love with this mod. Like?? are you kidding me? I could gush over this all day!
      It’s also super inspiring? I want to make a mod as amazing as this and cyberpunk like, but… I’m not a modder. lol

      feel free to ignore this but, if it isn’t too much to ask, do you have any plans for npcs? It’s very barren in the world without other characters, but I still love it to pieces. <3

      Hi there Halo,
      So who is Boss and why is he hiding :o?

      So I decided to add some guards and some not so friendly guards in Knox and have them wear Mass Effect armors. Do you think this fits in with the theme of Knox.

      Previously I added angry ghostly children in the abandoned elementary school… I loosely created a quest through the holopads.

      @People asking for have you all met Blake yet he’s in the wave Radio station. Knox is a 3D world remember sometimes you can go up. Also there there is an underground area too.

      • Halofarm February 11, 2018 4:22 pm  Reply

        Well, I don’t know about any of that, but Boss is a female, and she is hiding because she’s an assassin.

    21. Kerosene February 19, 2018 2:47 am  Reply

      First off–this is the first time I’ve downloaded your map mod and I love it! Thank you for creating it.

      I’m having a problem a problem though, some of the textures appear to be missing (e.g. towels, unless they’re supposed to be blue) Is there a requirement for this mod or a previous version that needs to be downloaded?

      In any case, bookmarked and followed.

      • Halofarm February 19, 2018 8:09 am  Reply

        No, it’s a full download. That’s a very strange issue to be having. I’d assume I missed out on packing the textures, but I’m not sure how I managed to miss such a specific one.

      • Halofarm February 19, 2018 8:14 am  Reply

        Having checked the archive, the towel textures are exactly where they should be. What program did you use to extract the mod? If you did a manual install and used WinZip or WinRAR, both of those could have failed to extract some assets. 7-zip should always be used to extract .7z files. If that’s not the issue, I’m really not sure what would be.

        • Kerosene February 19, 2018 9:47 am  Reply

          Extracting with 7z fixed it, thank you! I ended up getting the wrong impression because I downloaded an earlier version out of curiosity (using WinRAR again) and actually had some textures fixed even though in the back of my head I knew it was illogical.

          But damn, now you’ve made me paranoid that WinRAR has been silently stabbing me in the back for years…I think I need to go sit down…

          • Halofarm February 19, 2018 2:12 pm  Reply

            It’s a very common problem I’ve had people report. Once the file goes over a certain size, WinZip and WinRAR don’t seem to handle the format properly.

      Great improvement of a wonderful mod! However I have two problems:
      – I cannot find the “Warehouse, accessible from Ehlnofey’s Landing, north east exit” – there are just Barracks.
      – I cannot access the “Club Accord” from Solitudes Accord – what is and where is the “attractor field”?

      • Halofarm February 28, 2018 6:53 pm  Reply

        1: The barracks are a warehouse.
        2: That information is literally in the post you’re commenting on.

      I seem to be getting some strange ghosting effect in the screenshotting rooms that is very distracting there but not present anywhere else. I tried removing the ENB but it still persisted, so it can’t be that.

        EDIT: This seems to occur in places like the Dark Room or Shadow Play where those transparent walls are present.

      • Halofarm May 10, 2018 3:41 pm  Reply

        Yes, I am well aware of this “bug”. It’s the refractive shader on the glass walls. It can’t be fixed without making the glass look like plastic instead of glass. I chose to keep the glassy look with the halos rather than having them look plastic without the halos.

        • Anonymous May 10, 2018 3:47 pm  Reply

          I see. It’s strange since I didn’t have this problem in the earlier versions. Is it possible to try one of them or they aren’t any different?

          If they are fine, I’d download one of them.

          • Halofarm May 10, 2018 10:31 pm  Reply

            The refraction shader is a new addition. I asked people’s opinions on whether to keep the glassy look and deal with the haloing, or use the old plasticy look without the halos. People chose the glassy look.

            The older versions didn’t have the glass refraction, so there was no haloing, but there are no older versions of the AS available. I do not archive old versions.

            • Anonymous May 10, 2018 11:38 pm 

              Is it possible to manually remove the shader from the meshes in Nifskope? If yes, which ones?

          • Halofarm May 11, 2018 6:45 am  Reply

            Yes, anything with glass in the name. You need to turn off a series of shader flags, such as refraction and subsurface, and delete one of the duplicate mesh parts for each. There are probably still some clutter meshes which I didn’t add refraction to that you can use to compare.

    27. Anonymous May 11, 2018 6:47 pm  Reply

      Thank you. Setting the refraction value to 0 on the floor glass panel alone got rid of most of the ghosting as it’s not nearly as noticable on the vertical walls.

      As for the nexus mod manger (NMM) and installing this mod you need to add the mod manually to the NMM:
      1. Click the folder icon at the top menu bar
      2. From the menu that appears click:
      “Open NMM’s Mods Folder”
      3. Drop the mod in there and close the NMM after the transfer completes
      4. reopen and activate :)

      Make a set of buildings that don’t follow logic, they should be arranged on sky, land etc in a manner that it should have a feel of crystal world of dystopia of Doctor Strange master bald woman in the movie with upside down gravity etc
