Steps to Download and Install Immersive Armors Mod in Skyrim

Downloading and Installing a mod to use in Skyrim is easy. Here is a step-by-step guide to get you through the downloading and installing process:

  • Save the game for good measure. Then, close the game.
  • Have the following applications downloaded beforehand for the smooth running of the mod: Nexus Mod Manager, Immersive Armor, Reproccer, and Reproccer Patches
  • Download the Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) from the Nexus Mods website. It is a loader that will configure your mod files to run smoothly with the game.
  • Allow the NMM to make changes for future mods.

  • In the NMM, files can be seen with a tick or cross before their names. They indicate whether a file is installed or not on your computer. If the file is not installed, simply click on the file name and then press the download button (Second puzzle piece icon on the top left) and it will be installed at the appropriate place.
  • Download the Immersive Armor (IA) mod files from the link above. Be sure to read the Readme file as well.
  • After that, download the Reproccer and Reproccer Patches in the same manner. Skyrim Reproccer embeds the mods into the game and makes the changes. Reproccer Patches modifies the mods once new patches are released. So players do not have to worry about finding the latest patch and replacing the old ones.
  • Now use NMM to install the downloaded files (Immersive Armor, Reporoccer, and Reproccer patches).
  • Upon complete installation, the Reproccer will open a checklist to ask which specific files of the mods to use in the game from the ones installed in your computer.
  • Select the mods you wish to play with and press next until the Finish button appears. Press Finish to finish the modding.
  • The console will ask for overwrite confirmation, to which you will press ‘Yes to all’.
  • Once the patches are fully installed, go to the main Skyrim Files, then to Data, and find the ‘Reproc Patch’ folder. Open it and run the executable file. Once it opens, press the patch button.
