SWS is a vast modification set in a lore inspired by the Warring States period of Japanese history. While many of the concepts are inspired by history, this mod is also heavily influenced by Japanese Pop Culture, and how it has portrayed this time in history. In order to better fit the Elder Scrolls universe, this mod will include fantastical elements such as magic, demons and other RPG staples.
Today we take a closer look at Mikua village, landscaping, and a way that Skyrim players can help make SWS look better by designing faces!

Recently, I've been focusing on fleshing out Mikua, the first village in our worldspace Miora. Below are a few pictures you may have already seen.
I know landscaping elements aren't the most exciting things when it comes to games, but they help to flesh out a living world. Here you can see a new grass texture, 'fine grass,' which will not have additional 3D grass models on top of it when the rest of the grass is working properly.
Please note that the above two images were taken within the Creation Kit.
As we've discussed before, followers in SWS are not like the ones you find in Skyrim. Followers will be functioning characters within the story, and will react to their environment both randomly and contextually. Those who chose to follow you into battle are not 'sworn to carry your burden,' but instead are individuals who's trust you have worked hard to earn. This doesn't mean you'll be playing a mini version of The Sims, talking and complementing your way into someone's heart, but simply that your choices will have a say in who is willing to do what for you.
You will also be able to gather more than one follower, forming a 'party,' as seen in many traditional RPGs. Your party members will react to one-another, and may not always get along so well. Choosing who to bring along on what adventure can be the difference between quick success and a long drawn out affair.
Are you a Skyrim player interested in helping out? Do you lack modding skills? Its ok! Here is something anyone can do to help out.
We need faces. Not faces pealed from the skulls of other living people (Sorry, put the knife down), but faces carefully crafted in Skyrim. More spesifically, we need Asian themed male faces. As you may know, the modding community is overflowing with mods to make your female characters look amazing, but not a single modified male-head mesh exists in all of the interwebs.
Due to this lack of resources, we will be using the default head mesh from Skyrim, at least until we can make our own. Here is what you need to do if you want to join in the fun:
Here you can see my failed attempt, with a nice sunset to make up for it.
