There are some hilarious and also irritating visual issues and glitches with various garments in the game. This is what I discovered so far.
I. The “arrow in the knee spot” problem
Item involved: Tight green hose
By some peculiar reason Henry has an odd “knee problem”: if he put on some specific clothes parts of his knee can be seen through those clothes. This includes even Henry’s default “Tight green hose” (!) he is wearing at the beginning of the game, as well as all other “tight” hose. Male NPCs wearing same clothes are affected with the same visual problems, by the way.
Is that a Skyrim easter egg, I wonder?
1 - Tight green hose: Henry’s knee, the inventory view
2 - Tight green hose: Henry’s knee, first person view
3 - Tight green hose: Henry’s knees, free camera
II. The plate chausses knee problem
- for example Nuremberg Plate Chausses
- and also almost every other leg plate armor in the game
It is basically the same problem as the one above, but with almost every leg plate armor in the game.
4 - Plate leg armor: Henry’s knee, the first person view.
III. Slit throat problem
- Brocade outer jacket
- and also almost every other jacket with high collar in the game
If Henry (or a male NPC) is wearing Brocade outer jacket it looks he has a slit throat.
5 - Brocade outer jacket: slit throat (look closer to the neck!), the inventory view
6 - Brocade outer jacket: slit throat, in dialogue view
7 - Brocade outer jacket slit throat: free camera view
IV. Noble’s Hood problem
- "Noble’s Yellow Hood"
- maybe other noble’s hoods too
Noble’s Yellow Hood is not correctly displayed as the outer garment, if you have any body plate armor on you.
9 - Noble’s Yellow Hood glitch: in the inventory view
10 - Noble’s Yellow Hood glitch: free camera view
V. Broken neck problem
- Fancy shirt
If you put on Fancy Shirt together with Decorated Caftan it will cause a vary hard deformation of Henry’s neck. On the other hand. putting on Fancy Shirt or Decorated Caftan on their own does not cause any deformation effect.
11 - Fancy shirt and Decorated caftan: broken neck (look closer!), the inventory view
12 - Fancy shirt and Decorated caftan: broken neck, in dialogue view
13 - Fancy shirt and Decorated caftan: broken neck, free camera view
VI. Invisible boots problem
- High Boots
- Leather Boots
- maybe some other boots too
The listed items are invisible on Henry’s feet.
14 - High Boots are invisible, the inventory view
15 - High Boots are invisible, first person view
Why this is a bug and/or a glitch:
Obviously all the garments in the game should look the proper way. The listed ones are not looking fine so far. So, please, fix their glitchy visual representation.
I am not sure I discovered all of the buggy clothes (and also their combinations) in the game. Would you be so kind to appoint some of your QA-testers for checking the subject at hand?
