This mod adds a new set of arctic armor and weapons sold by a new vendor.

Arctic Boots
Arctic Cuirass
Arctic Gloves
Arctic Leggins
Arctic Helmet
Arctic Hood
Arctic Bow
Arctic Arrows

The vendor keeps two sets of non-enchanted weapons and armor and will sell more over time. The quality of this armor is equivalent to Leather.
The vendor only has one set of enchanted weapons and armor that he will sell. The quality of this armor is equivalent to Mithril.

Each armor piece has this enchantment:
+2 Agility
+1 Marksmanship
+2 Sneak
+2 Resist Frost

The Arctic Bow has this enchantment:
+3 Absorb Marksmanship
+2 Absorb Sneak
+2 Frost Damage

The Arctic Arrow has this enchantment:
+1 Frost Damage
+2 Paralyze
+1 Weakness to Frost

When all armor pieces are worn together at the same time, you get the following bonuses:

Arctic Arrow Summons - A spell that can conjur 10 Arctic Arrows.
Arctic SnowFlake - A ranged frost attack for Novices.
Arctic SnowBall - A ranged frost attack for Apprentices.
Arctic SnowBoulder - A ranged frost attack for Journeymen.
Arctic SnowAvalanche - A ranged frost attack for Experts.

When the bonuses are granted, you will hear custom sound FX which lets you know the bonuses have been granted. The weather will also begin to snow.

You can buy the Arctic Fur set from a new vendor called Arctico at a shop called Nord Winds in Bruma.

This archive is distributed in 7-zip's .7z format which requires 7-zip (or other current archive utilities). The archive is what I call OMOD-Ready which simply means that it's a normal archive but with extra data contained in it to allow you to quickly convert it to an OMOD for use with Oblivion Mod Manager.

Pick which method you are going to use for installation:

Manual Installation
- = or = -
OBMM Installation

Manual Install
1. Extract this archive to any folder and then copy the contents to Oblivion's Data folder. You can ignore or delete the "omod conversion data" folder.
2. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, and enable the .esp file.

OBMM Install
Create the OMOD (Do this section only once)
1. Copy archive to (install folder)Oblivionobmmmods
2. Start Oblivion Mod Manager.
3. Click the Create button.
4. Click the Add Archive button, find and select the archive, then click Yes.
5. Click the Create omod button, then click OK when it finishes.

Install the mod using OBMM
1. Start Oblivion Mod Manager.
2. Double-click the name of the mod in the right-hand side of the OBMM screen. (icon should turn blue)

Pick which method you are going to use for uninstall based on how you installed it:

Manual Uninstall
- = or = -
OBMM Uninstall

Manual Uninstall
1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file.
2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod.

OblivionDataArctic Gear Improved.esp
OblivionDataArctic Gear Improved Readme.txt

OBMM Uninstall
1. Start Oblivion Mod Manager.
2. Double-click the name of the mod in the right-hand side of the OBMM screen, click Yes. (icon should turn green)

Upgrading from Arctic Gear Improved 2.0:
- Simply overwrite one with the new one.

Upgrading from Arctic Gear 1.0 or 1.1:
- Sell all your items.
- Save your game.
- Uninstall old version.
- Install new version.

None. The vendor and his items are all unique. The vendor NPC is added to an existing location so if any other mod adds something to the same location, there might be a problem, however it's unlikely and the last mod loaded will "win" over any conflicts.

Known Issues or Bugs
