Classic armors skins

This mod is greatly inspired by Vanilla Armor Skins created by Kaliya which haven't been updated in a long time and feel a bit incomplete to me.
It has been created for a private server with my friends but fill free to use it if you want.

This mod add a craftable skin of all armors and shields from the base game and its DLCs.
The engrams for those skins are available at the same levels as the corresponding armor items (except for Tek which I've set to level 100). You don't need engram points to unlock them but you need to have already unlocked the corresponding armor item.

Every skin can be crafted in the player inventory and the crafting costs are really low.
The skins can be dyed the same way as theirs armor versions.
The pants skins also applies the sounds (crouching, proning and crawling) of its armor versions (only pants handle sounds in the base game).

Here's the list of items which are available as skins (and their crafting costs):
  • Cloth armor items (1x fiber)
  • Hide armor items (1x hide)
  • Fur armor items (1x pelt, hair or wool)
  • Desert cloth items (1x silk)
  • Ghillie armor items (1x organic polymer)
  • Chitin armor items (1x chitin)
  • Flak armor items (1x metal or scrap metal ingot)
  • Hazard suit items (1x blue gem or blue crystalized sap)
  • SCUBA armor items (1x silica pearl or silicate)
  • Riot armor items (1x silica pearl or silicate & 1x polymer or organic polymer)
  • Tek armor items (1x black pearl)
  • Gas mask (1x polymer or organic polymer)
  • Heavy miner's helmet (1x electronics)
  • Night vision goggles (1x angler gel)
  • Wood shield (1x wood or fungal wood)
  • Metal shield (1x metal or scrap metal ingot)
  • Riot shield (1x crystal)
  • Tek shield (1x black pearl)
  • Invisible skin set (1x absorbent substrate, make clothes invisible)

I was asking, if you could implant more compatibility for specific mods, or if i am allowed to do this myself with your mod. I have a mod that lets you craft upgraded Tek Armour, but cannot put the skins on them.

@rbbrBootz It's called skin for a reason. It's not called armor also for a reason.

Also, do the SCUBA fins make you swim faster?

This looks like a GREAT mod. Question for you, does the gas mask skin have the effects, both sound and protection?

Hey drakedwin, thanks for this mod love it to bits. Would it be possible at all to add achievement/event skins that work on tek armor or do you know of any other mod that does this that isnt massive in size please?

You can already use the vanilla INI options to change the crafting requirements or to hide an engram so I didn't add specific options for this mod.
For those who do not know how to use those options, there is now a topic in the discussions section which explains how it works.

I love that this mod exists and it amazing for normal modded servers but consider changing the crafting costs of everything to fiber since it is just skins or hopefully you have made its costs adjustable in the ini and Ingrams hideable for primitive and roleplay servers

I just release a new version which should fix the issue with tek skins.
I've also added a new set of skins that make armors invisible (has suggested by Rato; thx for the suggestion by the way).
Let me know if there is any issue.
