Today I'm introducing a new column which will not be focused on my own mods. As a tribute to some of my favorite modders I have decided to showcase the best items in my personal male armor and clothes collection.
I'm starting with one of the most honorable members of the Oblivion modding scene: Chakaru! She's always been a source of inspiration for me, her mods are pure magic! She's always pushed herself beyond the limits of Oblivion's engine, creating things I'd never imagine to see in game. Plus, she's very much likely a fan of steampunk stuff, which is something I love! I was in a bliss when I found out she's modding for the boys, too! If you want to learn more about her visit Chakaru's Hawkhaven, you won't regret it!
This is a male outfit ported to Oblivion from the game Gunslayer Legend. As a bonus, the download also includes a wig from Final Fantasy XIII, not showed here.
Belphe's Travelling Gear Male
This wonderful mash-up was originally made for female characters but Chakaru decided to make a male version as well (hurray!). Most pieces come from Skyrim and there are several props adorning it. These include a book, a sword, a quiver, potions and ingredients. It's really impressive!
A super secret outfit comes with the archive as a bonus!
Tera Highelf Male
Although Chakaru's videocard got fried, nothing could prevent her from modding. This outfit comes from Tera but it's still a WIP, infact the arms didn't show up properly in game. However a few changes in nifskope should be enough to fix the problem.
The second modder I want to pay homage to is Kiki. His Baron Armor had a great success years ago, and some time later he released the Sylvan Armor. His armors are based on original designs of his (or at least they are modeled from scratch, no ripped content from other games is involved) and always include both male and female variants. Today I'm showing you two of his most recent works.
This is a white heavy armor based on the Elvaan Paladin set from Final Fantasy XI Online. A shield is included and a tiara comes as a bonus.
This armor is modeled off the Haubergeon set from Final Fantasy XIV. It comes in two variations and includes an optional beltpack and flask. I very much like this armor! Its is tight-fitting and the textures are very well detailed.
