Skyrim Academy v0.7


All right, so when I am working really hard on something, my estimates of time tend to be a little longer than things actually take, because I fail at taking breaks.

So here is Skyrim Academy v0.7, and this update is a pretty massive one.

Here’s a small list of SOME of the things that have been added with the 0.1 increase:

  • Added the bases for a couple of new areas. Nothing much yet, but the club building and the sports hall now exist.
  • This one should have been in the update notes for the last update, as well as this one, but added background music for all areas. Different areas have different tracks. I forgot to credit it in the readme, but all the music comes from the Persona 5 Fan OST.  If you like the tracks, you can listen to the whole massive compilation of music here:
  • FINISHED the main school building, including a main gate with some pretty LOD and some dirty little secrets which you can read about in the full changelog in the readme.
  • Did all kinds of optimisation, such as decreasing the number of shadow casters in the maps. This should pull some extra FPS for some, at the expense of a little realism.
  • Combined the .esp/.esm pair into one single .esp, and packed files into a compressed .bsa. This means the mod is now easier to install, and takes up 1/3 of the space on your hard drive. On top of that, I will be using the .bsa format from now on, so the mod will be simple to upgrade to future versions. HOWEVER, PLEASE READ THE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS. They’re important this time.
  • You now get a spell to take you to the school, and can fast travel out of the main building, so no more developer console like a beta tester.
  • Lots of other little fixes, improvements and just general better-than-the-last-version-ness.

I also just wanted to take a moment this time around to offer a thanks to Higeyoshi. I’m sure some of you have seen his classroom studio mod. It was that mod which, in part, inspired this mod.

Here’s the download link, and I hope you all enjoy the update:

I don’t know when the next update will be, since I intend to take a little break from all this modding, but you can expect it sooner, rather than later.

    Weirdly it still crashes my game.Are there any pre-requisites for this mod ? I’m on the latest version + dragonborn +unofficial patches.

      I fixed it after uninstall tera armors.Seems like the game had become too heavy.

    nevertheless, what mod do you reccomend for better face lighting for screenshots ? facelight doesn’t seem to always work as planned especially when posing.

      I actually don’t use a mod. I just find a nice spot and use the area lighting to my advantage. I often find, especially in exterior cells, the time of day and the direction you’re facing can make a huge difference.

      I use facelight a lot, but it does have a lot of issues when posing. If I require fill in light I usually spawn a copy of my character at my postion, equip that copy a torch and then setactoralpha 0

      Great work on these mods Halo, they make excellent environments for screenshots :) Many, many thanks :)

    Tried it out, and it was fun doing a lot of capping by using Pinup. Works best with Anano’s school uniform set (or for that matter, any themed uniform set; I have a customized retexture kit for that, but can’t upload due to Nexus Rules).

    Now if it were possible to convert 3D Custom Girl costumes for Skyrim…

    Nice Work!
    It looks like ‘artificial girl’ school :)
    Keep nice works please.

    Q. is there clothes in this update that you mentioned “Clothing and Armour”?

    • Halofarm March 12, 2013 10:17 pm  Reply

      No. The only clothing is the school swimsuit which has been in it all along. I was probably recommending something from my clothing download section.
