Nox Dining Set Redux


Nox is probably my favourite dining set with its angular looks mixed with bright colours. It however was made with an early version of TSRW and needed to be remade to make it easier to update in the future. It gave me the opportunity to redo the textures and optimised some of the meshes as well. I removed some redundant styles and added some too. All-in-all I am very happy with this remake and will get more years of use out of it.


Some things you need to know:
  • These are completely new objects so although some of the file names are the same, they will not replace the originals if you have the 2 sets in different folders. 
  • Meshes optimised and new styles added to the tables and sideboard adding solid colours
  • Dining chair optimised styles
  • cleaner and nicer textures all-round
  • You will need to keep the short pendants in your mods folder to use the other heights as the textures are linked
Updates:
  • 13/12/2017: updated for the 12/12/17 patch that broke some surfaces

    1. Are you sure you have the latest version in your game and not an old version? The new version of the sideboard is a TV Stand which wasn't affected by the 12/12/17 patch. It is easy to tell them apart as the new versions of the tables and sideboard have solid colour options and the original didn't. You can have both versions ingame but i am no longer supporting the old version so it will remain broken. I would advise you to just double-check as a few people have reported similar issues with other sets but still had older files in their mods folder. I have updated for the tables though so they should no longer be a problem and i double-checked the uploaded files on SFS and everything is in order. Hopefully you can find out why your version is not working.
