RRA - Realistic Race Armours

IMPORTANT: Please put this mod at the bottom of your load list. I'm not really sure why but all of the problems any downloader has had has been solved by putting it at the bottom of the load list.

Aside from that note, this is RRA - Realistic Race Armours and has been in development for a very long time. The mod was previously avaliable on the Nexus from as early as September but have now decided to put on the Steam Workshop.

What the mod does is it fixes the Lore issue in game wherby NPCs would all wear the same Iron / Steel armour despite it not being native to their country. I Have fixed this by creating new varients of higher leveled armour with different names (such as Smashed for Glass, Rusty for Orcish and Damaged for Ebony) to try and make the more rarer armours still appear where they should. The ratings for these armours varies from Fur all the way to around Steel, and the value of these armours is significantly less than there higher tiered equivalents. (usually 90% less valuable)

If you have any questions, suggestions or just want to let me know something, theres always the comments below. Other than that, thanks for checking out my little mod!

P.S. The video has been made by Sam Vincent, he is an awesome guy, great video maker and an amazing modder, so you really should check him out!

How about a way to use the rusty/damaged armor to make the normal version for slightly cheaper(still requiring the specific smithing perk/perks)?

Can you also do the opposite with low leveled armour? Maybe add 'Honed' Iron Weapons and 'Supple' Hunting bows that appear at higher levels and are stronger?

Make it so Dark elves wear chitin and bonemold

@oj48 In the Lore of Skyrim it says that elves cannot wear iron as it corrupts their skin, and Orcs are expert miners and smithers, so for these 2 races wearing their own armour would make more sense.

I fail to see the issue with the lore? Bandits will wear what they can find, some may not be able to afford elven or orcish equipment. This mod doesn't make a lot of sense in my opinion, if I'm wrong, please correct me.
