Tired of that drab brown leather look when you're trying to sneak around in the shadows? Do you wish you could look like a sneaky rogue instead of a warrior? Dye that leather armor black (or gray) then and make all your dreams come true!
I was a bit tired of seeing brown leather on all of my stealth characters, as well as stealth NPCs, and couldn't find an existing mod like this. So, I simply desaturated and made the colors of the base leather armor a much darker color for my personal use, then uploaded it here cuz I'm sure there are others like me who want their thieves to look sneaky too. This mod requires no additional mods and, as it's simply modifying base files.
NOTE: Someone in the comments mentioned that this mod may affect any other mods which utilize parts of the vanilla studdedarmor files, which this modifies. Keep this in mind if you're running any of those.
This is a mod for both the male and female versions of the armor and helmets. Please note that this also REPLACES AND RECOLORS ALL instances of this armor, including the armor on NPCs.
EDIT: As of April 17th, I've updated and replaced the original folder to instead have two separate folders: one will make your armor deep black, and the other will make it gray, as well as making the colors more consistent between both sets. This will fix the original mod's issue of the female armor being black while the male's was more gray, as well as offering options to actually have gray for both sets. Better late then never, right?
