Nordic Carved Bikini for 7BO

Nordic Carved Bikini for 7BO

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.

And if you like this and you live under a rock and didn’t already know, you can find more like it by the master of bikini armor, nisetanaka

    Would you be open to someone converting this to CBBE HDT?

    • Halofarm April 14, 2016 8:22 am  Reply

      As the permissions in the readme say, you can do whatever you like.

          I’m very interested in seeing a cbbe version of this! If it wasn’t clear, are you the one that’s gonna be doing the conversion? And if so, would you mind giving a progress report? Sorry I come off a tad impatient, it’s just that I REALLY want it

          lol, I don’t think you need to ask to review my mods. At least, I think you’re only the first or second person who ever bothered asking.

          thank you for the link good sir

          • Porterhause April 21, 2016 11:16 pm 

            You’re welcome. There’s an issue with the BS files that I’m sure Kofman77 will fix

    Neat! Thanks for carrying on the Nise-legacy! Also super glad you picked 7BO, won’t look out of place with my bombshell bodies. Are there any plans for the other armors? Stalhrim, dwarven, ebony, etc…. just judging by how great this looks, you’d do them justice.

    Would also like to ask for a thrown-together replacer (too noob to figure out how to get that going), but I figure some kind anon will try their hand at it eventually.

    • Halofarm April 14, 2016 8:21 am  Reply

      No plans right now to make anything else at the moment. Maybe in future I might try something with chitin.

    Amazing work, this could very well be one of nise’s bikinis. Looks like it was fun to make too, I’m a little surprised you didn’t make it for unpcm..don’t want to be annoying but why? Is it made for a specific char that uses 7bo? Sorry just curious

    • Halofarm April 14, 2016 11:33 am  Reply

      Exactly that reason. I have a character that uses all of nise’s bikini armours. Those are all on 7BO. She is on a 7B based body. So when I made this for her (the character in all the images), I also made this on 7BO, to go with all the other bikini armours. If I make any more, those too will be on 7BO. I have no intention of porting them to UNPCM either. In my mind, it was made for the body I put it on. HOWEVER, others are completely welcome to port it.

    it may not be nisetanaka but DAMN you are good. I actually switched to 7Base to use this

    Can I lay replacer version (Nordic Carved armor DLC2) of you mode on nexus?

    • Halofarm April 16, 2016 8:37 am  Reply

      I don’t think so. I just made a bikini armor. I’ve never even spoken with nisetanaka.

  7. Raptor April 16, 2016 6:45 am  Reply

    Also – I don’t know what I’m doing – where is the readme for this mod, or how can I see what the item codes are?

    • Halofarm April 16, 2016 8:38 am  Reply

      In the archive, where readmes usually are.

      • Raptor April 17, 2016 12:53 am  Reply

        Thanks. I pretty only go to the nexus for mods

      • Raptor April 17, 2016 1:05 am  Reply

        I don’t see it in the archive. It would make sense to include the readme in the mod description, or include it as some sort of text file with the mod, but what do I know I’m not from here and I don’t mod. Oh well, on the Nexus I will stay

        • Halofarm April 17, 2016 8:38 am  Reply

          What “mod description”? There’s only a blog post. People include readmes in the archive on the nexus, too. A lot of the time the “mod description” you see is from the readme, or it used to be until people’s mod descriptions became a huge piles of images, gifs, and videos. I can’t make it any more obvious than “in the archive”. It’s right there in the folder.

    I think you’re selling yourself a bit short. For a first attempt (is that correct?) this is really good. Works pretty well. No shame in using nisentanaka’s configuration either. No point reinventing the wheel.
    I’m in the process of learning to mod myself, so far I’ve got as far as learning to extract and prepare files for use with the blender program (a learning curve in itself), but learning to actually design and make something is an entirely different kettle of fish. I’ve been combing through tutorial pages and videos, many of which are outdated with old links and whatnot, so that makes things a little bit harder
    I’m aspiring to make other bikini armours in the similar configuration you/nisentanaka have, mostly dwarven, orcish, ebony, etc. Armours that haven’t been done yet (unless someone beats me to it).

    Once again, great job!

    • Halofarm April 18, 2016 8:32 am  Reply

      Well, personally I just think it’d be pretty hard to come close to nise’s bikinis. Considering he calls his line of bikini armors “shitty”, they’re anything but. It’s a lot to try to live up to, lol.

  9. Marcello April 18, 2016 5:11 pm  Reply

    When i saw the screenshots I immediately thought it was nisetanaqa back at it once more, so even though you’re not the bikini master I can see you did an outstanding mod. Why not post on nexus? you would get a lot more downloads there probably

    • Halofarm April 18, 2016 5:54 pm  Reply

      I don’t care about downloads. I keep my mods here because I don’t want to deal with the kind of drama you often get in nexus comments.

      • Marcello April 19, 2016 12:10 am  Reply

        im not familiar with that drama to be honest. I just think that it would be a good idea to draw attention to your mod so that other modders may be interesting in making a cbbe version…
        speaking of which, would you kindly make a cbbe version? I know i might be asking for a lot, but i’ve got to try

        • Halofarm April 19, 2016 8:33 am  Reply

          No, I would not. I am not kindly enough. Also there are a great many modders familiar with my blog.

          • marcello novella April 19, 2016 3:48 pm 

            all is well then. thank you for taking time to answer. when a cbbe version comes out, will the files be posted here in this mod page? i’m not very familiar with this site

          • Halofarm April 19, 2016 6:23 pm 

            They will most likely be posted wherever the person converting them feel like posting them. I don’t generally host files that aren’t mind except occasionally for friends, so I couldn’t say.

    This is amazing, just as good as Nisetanaka’s works, I might add. Don’t sell yourself short; you’ve done an amazing job with this set, and I’m hoping you continue the tradition.

    On that note, do you have a list of the Body Slots used by the pieces? I’m trying to figure something out for a different mod, and I wanna make sure nothing conflicts.

    • Halofarm April 22, 2016 8:52 am  Reply

      I mostly used the same slots as nisetanaka, unless I felt he was on crack when he chose a specific slot. I didn’t keep a list though. I’m afraid you’ll just have to check it in the files themselves, or in the esp.

    There is an ugly bug with the breasts in the CBBE version… Can anyone inform Kofman77?

    Hey, it’s me again. I wanted to ask you if you have any plans for the future of bikini armors, as in if you have planned on a new set or at least given that some thought. I really liked what you did with this mod after all, I would be more than thrilled to see any other such mods that you might make ;)

    • Halofarm April 24, 2016 11:02 pm  Reply

      I’ve mentioned that I’d like to do something with chitin, if I do any more, but it’s just an “if I do any more, that is what I’ll do” kind of a statement. I don’t have any actual plans to make more right now.

      • marcello novella April 27, 2016 11:42 pm  Reply

        Oh I see. Well in any case, I’m looking forward for when that happens!

    • Halofarm April 30, 2016 10:13 pm  Reply

      Can you take my name out of the title please? It’s okay to say it was made by me, but I don’t really want my name displayed like that on mods, particularly ones I didn’t upload myself.

        really sorry for that..

    Hi Halo. I was wondering about the leather around the legs. Is it part of the boots and thigh armor or is it independent of those two?

    I would just download it myself.. but I have to redownload the game.

    So.. I love this, but I’m having a problem.
    I installed it using Nexus and it seemed to go well. I got the book, and am able to create the pieces at my nearby forge. The problem comes when I try to give it to Lydia to wear. The game crashes immediately. I’m sure it’s something I’m doing wrong, but if someone has had this issue and knows how to fix it, I would appreciate some pointers. and yes. btw. I think you’re selling yourself short. This is amazing work, and I look forward to seeing Lydia traipsing around in it :)
    Thanks in advance

    hey, im horrible at reading posts, and whatnot, but i was wondering if you could make a light armor varien of this. if not i understand, i thought i would ask. have a blessed day

    • Halofarm June 25, 2017 2:49 pm  Reply

      Do you mean make the bikini light instead of heavy? Or are you asking me to make a whole other version? The first is a maybe, the second is a definite no. Either way it won’t be any time soon. I have a lot of other mods to work on at the moment.

      • Andrew Carr June 25, 2017 3:20 pm  Reply

        im sorry, i shouild have clarified, a light version of this mod. i love nordic carved armor look (vanilla and bikini) but i am a light armor person. and its no real rush to get you to convert it if you do.

    We really need more bikini armor mods… Lots of core sets are still missing like Daedric or Glass. This Carved Bikini mod is wonderful tho, thought it was nisetanaka himself to make it, nice job.
