Proof Of Concept Release Upperbody Test Addon

During a conversation with dewshine on the Official BethSoft Forums the idea arose to “force” female Argonians to wear special adapted upperbody clothing as well, to give their chests a rather flat, reptilian style, look. The goal was to use the clothing meshes for HGEC AA-cup on female Argonians, when you’re using HGEC or Exnem already anyways.

I couldn’t resist and, due to the fact my scripts were originally intended for “universal application”, I quickly expanded them to control the upperbody also, switching to adapted clothing items if present, and compiled a little Proof-Of-Concept addon release to Scripted Argonian Feet. Due to the fact I don’t use Exnem or HGEC myself I didn’t have any proper meshes in my possession, so I simply made female Argonians use the nude variant of the TFF upperbody when naked (explicit content censored in the pictures) and made them wear the male meshes for the Sack Cloth Shirt.
Proof Of Concept: female Argonian nude upperbody, others still clothedProof Of Concept: nude upperbody also on Argonian NPCsProof Of Concept: flat-chested and normal shirt next to each other

As you can see my scripts are a really mighty resource, able to take total control of every body slot you want to show every custom bodypart one can think of. The only bottleneck is the fact that you need adapted meshes for all items, but that’s not a specific issue of my approach but of all possible approaches in general, due to the fact Oblivion clothing items include bodypart meshes and will replace any bodypart currently visible on equip.

The only work left to get dewshine’s idea working now would be to rename all upperbody clothing files from the HGEC AA-cup package to end on “_ABfeet.nif” according to my scheme and then simply move them into their respective folders to take their places alongside the normal Non-AA HGEC clothing items. It’s as easy as that.

This time this release is only available on TES Nexus due to the fact it’s just a Proof-Of-Concept and doesn’t have any real use without proper meshes. It’s simply my share to the conversation anyways.
