Dragon Armors - Remastered Mod

Greetings all, I decided to try my hand at some modding since I enjoy so many of them from the community.

This one can be considered an Alpha in its current state, and what I am providing today is a preview of the final product:

The dragon armors in both BG1 and BG2 (especially 2) have always bothered me, they just seemed lackluster for what they should be. I mean for crying out loud, we have an amazing dwarven smith crafting armor from the most fearsome beasts in faerun.. shouldn't they be a bit more.... spectacular?

The goal of this mod:

Cosmetic improvements - these armors should really shine, and cosmetically, that's what I will try to do with them. That being said, the cosmetic improvements are not going to be overly gaudy or flashy (by my standards, at least). My goal is subtle awesomeness that stands out, but isn't over the top.

Ability improvements and changes - I will be making changes to the abilities of these armors to be more in line of what I feel they should be based on the respective color of the dragon they came from, as well as removing some of what I consider bothersome abilities currently on these armors. I am not looking to make these armors overpowered or the end-be-all.

Weidu compatibility - I've never made a Weidu mod before, but I would like the end product to be so.


7-22-2019 Update:

V1.0 of this mod is finished! It is also in WeiDu format for better compatibility with other mods. You can download it below, and a screenshot:

For the cosmetic-only version of this mod, you can download it here:

For best compatibility this mod should be installed prior to other item mods, especially large ones like the G3 tweaks anthology.

I appreciate any feedback or pointers. Enjoy!
