  • Added safety checks to prevent smelting of equipped items.

Immersive Armors mod REQUIRES version 1.8+ of Skyrim

Immersive Armors

?Download Immersive Armors

Q1: BOSS says SPIKE.esm is not present or active

You’re using is out of date Boss version. SPIKE.esm is no longer required. Update BOSS to v2.2 (or better). BOSS v2.2.

Q2: WyreBash mentions some error with a helmet entry?

This is a false positive and should be ignored.

Q3: The Immersive Armors Configuration has Finished message appears repeatedly.

Your game and/or save are corrupt. Assuming you have SkSE, you can try:
– Load a save from before you installed IA_v7.
– Go to an interior cell (like a player home)
– In the Console enter: ClearInvalidRegistrations 1
– Then save your game.
– Try installing IA_v7 on that save.

Q4: Will you make X armor for me? I really want someone to make it for Skyrim!

I am a busy man! I no longer take requests, sorry.

Q5: Are you upgrading from version X to version Y. Anything I need to know?

No. I make installation a one-click process for your ease of use.

Q6: Will you make a CBBE patch?

Link in the 3rd sticky post.

Q7: I have the following NMM error:
Failure; A problem occurred during the install; …”system.outofmemoryexception”…; The mod was not installed

This error has nothing to do with my mod. This is an error thrown by NMM 32bit for all large files. For 32bit NMM users, I suggest a manual install. My mod is only 3 files. It is easy to keep track of.

Q8: The download for this file keeps stopping before it’s finished

Navigate to C: -> Games -> Skyrim -> mods -> downloads. Delete anything with the name hothtrooper44_ArmorCompilation found there. Also, do the same for the cache folder found under mods and try to download again.
