So I had the wrong BSLighting

So I had the wrong BSLighting shader flag, which was set to environment instead of skin

So I fixed that, but now the arms come up as black.

I posted this issue on

I posted this issue on another forum, the solution is

"In the NiTriShapeData, change No. of UV sets to 1, Has Normals to No, and Has Vertex Colors to Yes"

I will have iron Armour done tonight, been stuck on this issue all day.

Good news is that the skin colour now changes appropriately with race.

EDIT: Updated OP, added Iron Armour

Took a break from converting

Took a break from converting armours, will get back to converting tomorrow.

Had some stuff in real life to sort out.

Thank you yazza2014 for your incredible work! Perhaps a development video could be made to increase awareness, contributors have uploaded footage to youtube already, perhaps some of that could be edited together? Just a suggestion :)

No, that wouldn’t work. The

No, that wouldn’t work. The mapping from Oblivion values to Skyrim values is not linear, so you can’t just say: If Exhibit A has got a Oblivion value that is x times the Oblivion value of Exhibit B, then the Skyrim value of A is also x times the one of B.

You rather have to interpolate the values (And you have to do an interpolation for heavy and light armor, for those values changed non-linear too, as well as for every Armour part). Else you would mix up Oblivion’s ordering. I’ve done that just now, and here you can see a big problem when you just give the Oblivion Armours that already exist in Skyrim the Skyrim values.

Oblivon has got three light Armours between Leather and Elven, with Elven being the second best light Armour. Skyrim one the other hand has no light Armours between Leather and Elven, but puts them between Elven and Glass. So when orientating on the Skyrim values, Leather, Chainmail, Mithril and Elven will only be very little steps, while Glass will be a huge one. So it would be advisable to drastically increase the armour rating of Elven armour.

If you want so, I can do you a list with Interpolation values for all Oblivion Armour.

It is too early to discuss this. Setting values in CK requires a single person and 1-2 hours, while everything else in this project requires joint effort of several people and months.

Well, when I finish my armour esp file, do you want to edit the values? You seem to have a better idea than I do about balancing armour stats.

My main effort is getting the actual 3D models converted

Another 3DS MAX update

Another 3DS MAX update

Orcish Armour

I've decided to convert all other male armour sets before I put them in-game. But I will post 3DS MAX screenshots to keep everyone updated.

I think there's another 7 sets of armour left.

Great! When I finish the ESP file, I'll send you a PM. That can be your contribution to Skyblivion.

@Zilav

Could you make an esp file with item entries for shields, clothes and other miscellaneous armour/clothes? would save me a lot of time.

Arena Light armour in 3DS MAX

Arena Light armour in 3DS MAX, most challenging armour to convert so far

In this armour, you can see the neck/throat. I wonder how this will turn out in-game? Because the vanilla head and body don't line up. Would they be attached together in-game?

Yes correct the head and body models do not fit in 3DsMax, but they magically fit in game without any issues. I have no idea why this is.

Once I finish the Arena

Once I finish the Arena armour (Only Arena Champion armour is left), I'll put them in-game, along with Orcish, shrouded armour, Elven and Fur armour.

Then I'll do the DLC armour and put them in-game, and after that it's the Miscellaneous Armours.

I'm not sure what you mean? The armours are scaled correctly.

Unless you're talking about the picture I posted, not showing the full body?

Great work yazza, don't

Great work yazza, don't listen to people (registered several days ago) giving advices on what and how to do. Not saying that particular advice is bad, or person is wrong or something like that. Advices in general don't help, only slow down or kill projects from my experience. I always prefer to have something working first, and do polishing later, than not having anything at all trying to achieve some ideal.

I haven't started yet, still doing armour sets.

Would be very convenient if you could convert clothes while I convert armour. Send me some of your work and I'll take a look at it. If you don't know what you're doing, or if you get stuck, let me know.

Do you know how to use the creation kit and assign slots?

I'm still waiting for Zilav to make an automated esp file for clothes, which would save us time from entering all those items manually.

I was thinking for clothes that we have separate greaves and tops? I don't know how well I could prevent clipping with different combinations though.

Otherwise the alternative is to come up with outfits that have both in one.

This probably isn't all that helpful, and won't make things that much quicker but I can help with all the Creation Kit stuff if given the nif files. I'd help with the 3D part, but I feel I lack the skill required to do so.

I was pretty sure that Zilav could automate it? This is just an esp for clothes that I want.

I have my nif files in different paths, so maybe that won't work....

I have it set up like

Cuirass_0

Cuirass_1

1stpersoncuirass_0

1stpersoncuirass_1

I might as well do it myself, as I have to put it in the creation kit to test in-game anyway.

 

On an unrelated note

Here is a screen cap of 3DS MAX showing the Dark Seducer male Armour

Hey you're doing a good job

Hey you're doing a good job with remaking the armours into the Skyrim engine. Just some input though. Maybe instead of completely duplicating the armours from Oblivion (They look exactly the same, which isn't necessarily bad), you could try "upgrading/changing" them (like Skywind has done), using the original armours on Oblivion as a base. Just a suggestion. Nice work :D

My armours are just a port,
My armours are just a port, and an optional addon for Skyblivion when released. I'm not a 3d modeller, like some people on the Skywind team. So to clarify, my armours are ports, they will be used as place holders for replacements (A new model, slightly different, like you said) and after that, it will become an optional mod for people that want completely original armours. So there will eventually be new armours based on the current ones.

I know I said that I'll post the Golden Saint Armour today, but I've been doing something else. I've been writing a tutorial on converting armour (Or clothes) from Oblivion to Skyrim.

So far I've written 2,000 words and done 40 pages. Maybe my tutorial will encourage people to convert armour or clothes? Who knows.

Not sure that it'll help right now with clothes, not enough people around capable to help at the moment unfortunately. But it'll definitely help in the long run when converting Oblivion mods with new armors.
