Battle Dress Plugin
What does this add?
The Battle Dress Plugin adds one light, and one heavy Braided set of armor to the Best Defense, and matching weapons of all varieties to A Fighting Chance, both in the Market District of the Imperial City (Though these items have also been spotted in other shops throughout Cyrodiil). The light armor and the weapons are of quality equal to Elven, while the heavy armor set is of quality equal to ebony, though with some changes in weight and durability.
Also adds a Horse Armor retexture that replaces the Steel Horse armor. Requires the Official Horse Armor Plugin to work.
How to Install
Extract the entire contents of the .7z/.rar file into your Oblivion\Data\ folder, and everything should work. Don't forget to enable the .esp from the Data Files menu in your Oblivion launcher.
You can open .7z files in recent versions of WINRAR!
To install the horse armor, follow the above steps, then if you have an ArchiveInvalidation.txt already in your main Oblivion folder, add the following lines to it:
If you do not already have an ArchiveInvalidation.txt file, copy the one provided in this archive to your main Oblivion folder. If you already unzipped the contents of the archive into your Oblivion\Data\ folder, you will find your ArchiveInvalidation.txt there.
If you were running a version of Battledress prior to 0.8, you should delete the contents of all the "Braided" folders under both Oblivion\Data\textures and Oblivion\Data\meshes prior to installing 0.8 or later versions. This is to remove the previous meshes and textures that were causing some weapons to display as purple.

Known Bugs & Compatibility Issues
If you ran Battledress v0.3 and bought the outfit, you will now have to repurchase it with this version.
This is due to a change of the mod's filename, and should prevent something like this from happening again with future versions. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Should you discover any other issues, feel free to contact me either through my e-mail or at the official Oblivion Mod Forums.

|how do you get the armor on the horse is it a mod please respond |
Joined: June 12th, 2006
|To get the horse armor you need to purchase the actual horse armor plug-in. |
then this replaces the steel set which you can get from chestnut handy stables from the orc inside, when you get horse armor plug-in, you will get a note, activating the quest.
