Spindrift Knight – hdt-SMP LE (BHUNP)
Vengeance Will Be Mine. A set of fantasy armor and weapon for female character made from scratch, inspired by Eula Lawrence from Genshin Impact. High definition model and 4k hand-painted texture, fruit of a month of work.
Vengeance shall me mine! Eula is one of my favorite characters from Genshin. I was so salty that I could not bring her home. So I said “fine, I’ll just make one in Todd’s 10 year old game”. Imagine if the costume of the Spindrift Knight is not a flat anime model. That is what this mod aims to capture. A layered costume for female character, featuring elegant and smart attire with a unique Claymore. Bodyslides are made only for Baka’s BHUNP LE. I am SE main so I have not tested this mod myself on LE, be warned.
This costume emphasizes layers of different clothing pieces that the Spindrift Knight Armor is consisted of. All of the pieces are modelled in high definition but still game-friendly. Texture is hand-painted in 4K, recapturing the modern PBR shader standard with special env mask technique. File is on a heavy side because of that, but I want to ensure the best possible quality!
Armor is layered, consisted of:
Undersuit (bodysuit) > torn version as alt texture
Pants > removable ornament
Belt > removable ornament
Tops > Sleeveless option
Gauntlets > are gauntlets
Necktie > SMP and non SMP options
Boots > modular thigh press
Vision Cape > xyz adjustable
Hair > xyz adjustable
Every piece is adjustable via bodyslide, with zapp options. Cape uses xyz adjustment instead of bodyslider, so you may want to adjust those separately from batch build. Hair is also xyz adjustable and comes in blue color and tintable version. Cape and necktie are built with hdt-SMP cloth physics, geared toward gameplay. They won’t get in your way when fighting!
The Song of Broken Pine is Eula’s top Claymore in Genshin. Its color scheme fits her so well. I took a lot of artistic liberty to reimagine how the greatsword would realistically look and came up with the idea of ice sword with glowing core.
The greatsword uses Ice refraction shader. Its ice enchantment comes with special frost effect.
Of course, you will need Stalhrim to upgrade it.
As a bonus and a tradition, the costume features a 2B theme alternate texture set (because we can never have enough 2B). This alt tex set was a repaint, not a mere recolor!
You probably already have this but you will need Dragonborn DLC
Always place any outfit mods after these in your load order
1) Install all the requirements and make sure they are up and running
2) Install via FOMOD with your mod manager of choice (MO2 is the correct answer)
3) Enable the mod in your load order
4) open bodyslide and select group
5) outfit is in the group [Caenarvon] Spindrift Knight
6) Batch build with your favorite bodyslide preset and exit
7) The armor is ready for your gameplay
Extra: you can open bodysilde while your game is running and adjust then rebuild the outfit in real time. I recommend you use this technique to adjust hair/cape.
The best lore-friendly excuse for this armor I came up with is Elisif being a secret cosplayer and I put the outfit and weapon in a wardrobe next to her bed in the Blue Palace. (look for LE version of the above)
