Celtic Biomask -  Predator Skyrim Mod by Cathats
Celtic Biomask - Predator Skyrim Mod
This is the new Celtic Biomask in the "PREDATORS: The Lost Tribes" Skyrim Mod.   There is a new spine sash trophy under his arm, new gauntlets, updated shoulder cannon normal maps too - all part of a bunch of new content going into Version 114B of my Skyrim mod.

It was a long time in delaying this biomask because it's my absolute favorite design, and I wanted to do a decent job of it.

Hey, I have a question. Why is the Combi stick One-handed? It's usually shown being wielded Two-handed.

I initially tried it that way but Skyrim's 2 handed attack animations and way of gripping it (choices being 2handed sword, Axe or hammer) were way off, and I found using it as a one handed weapon from the center grip was more appropriate than constantly grabbing it by the blades.  The One handed attacks have great thrusts and stabs (one handed cinematic kills look better too as it grips it by the grip and holds it in a balanced manner)   In an ideal world I would redo the animations and make all new weapon appropriate attacks - But I find Skyrim's animation development pipeline a real mess, overly complicated and stay away from it.  Too easy to break things.

 
If its 2 handed weapons you like - I still have the heavy double bladed "Glaive" as a 2 handed weapon, and for the upcoming "V111a release" I've made a smoother, stubbier and thicker "War Spear" that looks good using the 2 handed attacks.  I also have as a heavy "cleaver great sword", and a Klingon styled Yautja "bat'hleth"  All of which finished final testing as of last night and will be in the next update.

I'm going to work on getting Yautja decapitation working - then I'll probably release the V111a for the holidays.  Working on V111b to add the rest of the V111 content "to do" list materials.

I see, I was curious because it's very OP for a one-handed weapon. Yautja weapons are some of the coolest parts of the mod. Have you considered the spear gun as a crossbow type weapon?

Yeah I've thought about doing the speargun time and time again, but it would have to be a separate add on patch since the crossbow code relies on people having "DawnGuard" DLC unlocked.  So that has kind of pushed it down in priority since there's still a lot to do with the CORE gameplay mechanics work of the predator mod.


I based the Damage for that Yautja weapon on what I see it doing in the movies - Punching through steel door and keep going, or sticking right into solid stone impaling somebody off of the ground.  I wanted it to have that kind of drama and Oo effect.  It's an alien/sci fi metal alloy and I figure the damage is offset by the fact that Yautja hunters in game wield them at you.

I forget if its V110B or my unpublished more recent V111 update - but the bad blood camp has more heavily armed and cloaked opponents now.  When Testing the new 2 handed weapons I strode in there by the Yautja temple, and on come the cloak shimmers with barely visible yellow eyes as the new bad blood crafter and others came at me with all manner of weapons.  If it wasn't for the red dots in the Compass I probably wouldn't know what direction they were coming at me from.
