In this Article, I show how to create your own mods in Skyrim from items that are already in there but inaccessible to the player. (You can also download the mod here.)

How to use the Greybeard's Robes in Skyrim SpecialEdition

If you ever played Skyrim (or the Special Edition), you might know the greybeard's robes. Those are (in my opinion) the most epic piece of clothing you can have in Skyrim and this is also the biggest problem about them. You can't have them (usually).

If you just want to wear them, easy thing. Just use player.additem and player.equipitem with the ids: 36a44, 36a45, 36a46.

The problem with this is: You can't see the items in your inventory and the NPCs will think you are running around naked.

To solve this, you have to create your own mod from the clothes. You only need to have Skyrim purchased for this to work! Here's how to do that:

  1. Go to Bethesda and download their launcher
  2. Install the Skyrim Creation Kit
  3. Open the Creation Kit and load the Skyrim.esm file.
  4. In the TreeView you see in one of the windows, navigate to Armor>GrayBeards
  5. Right-click on each item (Hood, Boots and the Robe) and select Edit:
    5.1. Change the ItemID (!!!)
    5.2. Save the Item. You'll be asked if you want to create a new form, select yes!
  6. You'll now have three new items in the section. Edit each of them:
    6.1. Select Playable
    6.2. For the robe, right-click the "Keywords" section, select Add and add the Keyword ClothesBody.
  7. Click "Save" and save the mod file in your steamapps/common/Skyrim Special Edition/Data folder.
  8. Launch Skyrim, in the main menu go to "Mods" and press T to open the load order. Now make your Mod active.
  9. Congrats, you can now search for your items using help <First Word Of Name>. If you need to scroll in the console, use PgUp and PgDn.

If you don't want to do this because you're lazy or something, take the file I created. The stuff is called "Lia's [Robes, Hood, Boots]". Just type help Lia into the console and scroll up a bit.
