File Description

This mod adds a new armor and dagger inspired by the Assassin's Creed's character outfit, and requested by Eion at the Elder Scrolls Forums, as well as two variations of it with different colors and details.

The original Hashshashin armor (white) is set up as something in the level of Mithril Armor, although a bit more durable, and quite more expensive. If you want to change this, you can do so in the Construction Set (DMAC subcategory in the Armor tree -> double click on the item you wish to change -> change the AR rating to something you'd like -> Save the mod). The new Dark Hashshashin and Crimson Death armors have higher ratings, based upon those of the regular Hashshashin Armor. Also included, are a dagger and a couple of scimitars to complete your assassin look. ;-)

There are a number of optional files to customize the look of the armor. Their use is described below.

As a bonus, I've included a simple replacer for the Dark Brotherhood's hood that I didn't think warranted a separate download. You can find it in the Extras folder.

**ATTENTION!**

Note that this mod has been made using available resources and doesn't include any new models made specifically to recreate that outfit, so if you find any inconsistencies with the original Assassin's Creed armor, that is the reason. I've done my best to achieve a look that resembles that of Assassin's Creed's character as closely as possible with what's available.

*****************************************************************

This mod adds a new armor and dagger inspired by the Assassin's Creed's character outfit, and requested by Eion at the Elder Scrolls Forums, as well as two variations of it with different colors and details.

     2. INSTALLING THE PLUGIN

*****************************************************************

To install the plugin, unpack the Meshes and Textures folders, and the DMACArmor.esp plugin in your Oblivion\Data folder, click Yes when prompted to overwrite, and then activate the DMACArmor.esp file in the Data Files option of Oblivion's splashscreen.


*****************************************************************

     3. CUSTOMIZING THE PLUGIN

*****************************************************************

I included a few ways to customize some aspects of the mod, mainly the look of the armor, in an Extras folder.

All the options described below are achieved by simply overwriting the original files with those from the folder of the option you want to use.

So let's take a look at what's included in the Extras folder:

- Alternative Two Pauldron Hashshashin Cuirass: In case you'd like the standard Hashshashin cuirass to have two pauldrons, like the Dark Hashshashin cuirass, just replace the original meshes with the ones in this folder.

- Alternative Skirt Textures: This is just nitpicking, but if you want chains with your white skirt, or leather straps with your black or red skirts, here are the textures to do so.

- DB Hood Replacer: This replaces the DB hood mesh with one like those of the Hashshashin armors. Just copy the meshes and textures folders into your Data folder and you're set. No need for an ArchiveInvalidation entry or esp.

- DB Shoulder Patch: For those that want to use the armor as an alternative to that of the Dark Brotherhood, here is a texture of the cuirass that includes the DB handprint on the pauldron, both for the white and black versions of the armor. 

- DB Style Hood: If you'd rather have the hoods look like those of the Dark Brotherhood, replace the original meshes with the ones in this folder.

- Loose Pants: If you'd like youur armored skirt to ahve loose pants that cover your boots, use this files

- No Pauldron Cuirass: An alternative cuirass mesh that doesn't have the shoulder pauldron. For the standard and the Dark Hashshashin armors.

- No Red Cloth: If for some reason you don't like the red piece of cloth around the waist in the (white) Hashshashin cuirass, replace the default textures with the ones in this folder. There are two options: the regular version, and the DB shoulder patch version, in case you opted to use the armor as an alternative to the Dark Brotherhood's.

     4. PLAYING THE PLUGIN

*****************************************************************

Standard Hashshashin Armor:
Go to Cheydinhal, and look for the new equipment in a place no one dares to tread...

Dark Hashshashin and Crimson Death Armors:
Wander a little to the north of Cheydinhal, and see what catches your eyes...

If you need more specific directions, refer the the Spoilers section below.


*****************************************************************

     5. SAVED GAMES & CONFLICTS

*****************************************************************

This plugin should not invalidate your old saved games. But it never hurts to backup your saved games files.
It shouldn't conflict with any other plugins, though there may be slight conflicts if other plugins modify any of the cells affected by this one.
If you want to get rid of it, just delete the relevant files, and uncheck the esp.

Special Note: The equipment isn't leveled, so it may be a bit too powerful for a starting character, or weak for a higher level one.


*****************************************************************

     6. KNOWN ISSUES & BUGS

*****************************************************************

The skirt/pants mesh is originally for males only so, while there isn't massive clipping or other important issues when the item is worn by a female character, it may not look particularly feminine. Even so, the skirt part of the mesh covers much of the legs, so you probably won't notice it unless you try. ;-)

The Crimson Death's gauntlets have a very slim gap between the wrist and the forearm. It's barely noticeable, but it's still there. There's nothing I can do about it.
Also, I had to use the male's gauntlet mesh for the female's Crimson Death gauntlets because the female mesh wouldn't show up in first person view.
Finally, the original Mythic Dawn gauntlets (the mesh I used for the Crimson Death gauntlets) don't have a proper ground mesh, so I used a retextured Daedric Gauntlets ground mesh for them.

*****************************************************************

     7. HISTORY OF CHANGES

*****************************************************************

- 1.0 - Initial Release

- 1.01 - Fixed a wrong reference to the female boots' world model. Thanks to MarkQuinn for the heads up!

- 1.1 - Changed the skirt mesh for one with tighter pants (thanks, AlienSlof!), changed the shoulder patch design for the Assassin's Creed symbol, added a couple of gauntlets options for those that don't feel comfortable with bracers, and a lot of customizing options (alternate esp, black version, cuirass without pauldron, skirt mesh alternative).

-1.2 - Changed the skirt mesh once again, added the black version of the armor as an independent suit instead of a replacer, added a two pauldron cuirass (thanks to XMarkTheSpot), a new red variation of the armor (Crimson Death armor), a couple of great looking scimitars, courtesy of Mr. Dave, and tweaked pretty much all the textures. A lot.

-1.21 - Fixed a wrong texture (nothing critical), and added a couple of Extras I had forgotten including before.


*****************************************************************

     8. SPOILERS

*****************************************************************

Standard Hashshashin Armor:
You can find it and the dagger in the Abandoned House, in Cheydinhal.

Dark Hashshashin and Crimson Death Armors:
A little to the north of Cheydinhal there's a burnt tree with a hanging corpse. Go there and you'll find the armors (I won't give any more spoilers than that! ;-)).

Yup, it's that easy. :-)
