Fur Hoods HD



Warning: 1.4b fixes an important issue with 3d meshes in 1.4

NOW WITH HIGH DEFINITION TEXTURES (2048x2048) (Including custom Normal Maps, Specularity Maps and Alpha Transparencies)


Brave the harsh Skyrim weather with your trusty fur hood.

Available as regular(cloth), padded(light) and armored(heavy) versions, and in black, brown and white colors. Now upgradeable at a workbench and crafted from animal pelts. Default recipes can be found at the forge under Hide armor. Additional recipes will appear under Hide armor depending on the pelts available in the player's inventory. Recipes Work with pelts of all types (bear, cave bear, snow bear, deer, fox, snow fox, wolf, ice wolf, werewolf, sabre cat and snow sabre cat pelts)


The hood model used for this mod was originally unplayable due to possible clipping with various types of armor. You will have to decide for yourself what suits you. It works particularly well with Hide Armor, Studded Armor, Scaled (Horn) Armor, Iron Armor, Banded-Iron Armor, Wolf Armor, Steel Armor, Nightingale Armor, Shroud Armor and more!

A scarf-less version will be available in a future release.


- Scarf-less version and other custom meshes (hood-less scarf, nightingale hood)
