This mod is provided AS IS. I don't have the time to dedicate to improving it any further.
Is it my best mod? Not by a longshot (pun intended), but I don't have any plans to continue working on it. Take it or leave it. "Fixing" the tunics and gauntlets would require me to completely remake the mod (again), which is why the mod is no longer updating.

I have updated the mod with older-looking textures, and aimed to allow the player to dye the scarved to the color of their respective tunics, but unfortunately the mod became too large for Steam Workshop.
Please visit the Nexus Version[skyrim.nexusmods.com] for dyable scarves.

The biped hat mesh is by alteredtheBeast from his Link mod[skyrim.nexusmods.com]

While the ground version is by Tyen[skyrim.nexusmods.com]

The hats are now fixed and will appear normally on all races. They look a little funny on Argonians, but looking a little funny is better than clipping through head ridges.

Heavy Armor version

Additional tunics
Even more tunics


This mod is the result of a week's worth of texture work, building from scratch the textures of a set of armor based on Link's many tunics, while still keeping the realism of Skyrim.
There are still flaws, particularly in the mesh of the female tunics: the pant legs are too low and clip through nearly every boot in the game.

Now then, what's with the stupid scarf?

The Stormcloak armor mesh is designed for a scarf, and looks silly without one. Believe me, I tried. It looks even stupider, so please don't request that I get rid of it. I ca'n't.

Here's a video explaining how to find them!

The Kokiri Tunic (simply called Hero's Clothes) as well as the boots and gauntlets can be found in a chest in Bleak Falls Barrow, in the room with the word wall, on a bank of the creek that runs through the room.

The Zora Tunic can be found in a chest in Ustengrav, near the word wall, behind the waterfall.

The Goron Tunic can be found in a chest in Sky Haven Temple, in the room containing Dragonbane.

All three chests containing the tunics are locked with a Master level lock.
The Kokiri Tunic, Hero's cap and Hero's Gauntlets and Hero's Boots are equal to Elven armor. You can add gold trim to the Hero's cap by bringing it to a Tanning Rack and dying it with 4 Dragon's Tongue flowers.
The Zora Tunic is a little weaker, but allows the wearer to breathe under water. It also offers some resistance to frost magic. The hat also allows for waterbreathing.
The Goron Tunic is even weaker, but makes the wearer immune to flames.

The tunics and hats can be improved with Moonstone ingots (they all have a suit of chainmail under them made of moonstone), while the boots and gauntlets can be improved with leather. The Goron tunic also requires fire salts, while the Zora tunic requires Slaughterfish scales.

Thanks for liking the scarf. It may seem like a small thing, but I do appreciate it. When I released this a year and a half ago, that scarf was the focal point for quite a few negative comments.
And congratulations on finding the chest! Hidden in plain sight, as they say.

Dammit I can't find the chest!

I like the way it looks with the scarf. It fits the armor.

First, be sure you're looking in the right chest. The chest with the Kokiri Tunic is tucked away in Bleak Falls Barrow, and only contains the tunic and hat.
If you are looking in the right chest, then it might be best to disable the mod, save without it, and then enable it again.

What do I do if I can't find the kokiri tunic in the chest

well I certainly agree that the scarf could be slightly down sized I was actually thinking... if you used the model of the nightingale gloves for the shape of the gauntlets, and perhapse do something with the leather boots of skyrim it might look better, but these are just my thoughts. I know you said you weren't going to update this mod again so I don't expect a real response. still if you did do any of what I just said it would be awesome. :)

Unfortunately, the armor would look worse without the scarf. I made a version that allows the player to dye the scarf to make it less stupid-looking, but it was too large for the Workshop. I've stopped working on this mod, so no more updates will be happening.

I like the texture of the outfit but not the overall look. When my Argonian wore this she look like a nun. Also, my rig isn't as powerful to handle this mod (lag issues). When I didn't wear the outfit, my game ran smoothly. Weird. Anyways, I really liked the bracers. That's why I downloaded it in the first place. They were well made. Overall, I would say remove the white neck thingy or make it smaller and change the boots. The boots did not match well with the outfit at all. I think the boots with the 3 buttons on it is better.

If you're going to do a video; write a script first. This way you don't sound like you have no idea of what you're talking about.
