Update 1.2.1: Trials Of the Sword Patch 1y
  • - Edited Flamebreaker boots to give flame resistance
  • - Edited Flamebreaker helmet to give heat resistance
Thanks for all the great feedback I've been getting recently! Big thanks to @Canarious for making the armor edits. 

Update 1.2: Better Armors Compatibility Patch 1y Update 1.1.1: Gerudo Armor Fix 1y Update 1.1: Now with Cloud Mod Compatibility Patch 1y

Changes almost every piece of Link's armor in BoTW

This mod changes all of Link's armor pieces. I designed this mod to be used with Cemu 1.15.2 and up using the graphics pack method. (Although should theoretically work with most versions of Cemu) 
The ABOVE PICTURES ARE NOT ALL OF THE ARMORS EDITED, just a few to show the variety of this mod. The Zora armor is to show how the armor will change as it levels up. Any ability that is not at level 3 means that it will only go to that certain level (like heat/cold resist at lvl. 2 or lightning guard at lvl. 1) This mod should work with Wii u but I don't know how to get that to work personally. If anyone wants a Wii u port though, comment below. I hope you guys enjoy the mod!


This mod should also work with any mod that changes the physical look of the armor, as long as the other mod doesn't change the .sbactorpack or actorinfo.sbyml files. If you are having issues, look at the mod's rules.txt and change it's fspriority. My mod will show if the fspriority is HIGHER than the other mod, while if you put the fspriority of another mod over mine, it's possible this mod will not work properly. PM if you need more help too.

Here are the overall changes: (organized by set bonus; ability shown is when the armor is at it's max level - 4 stars or for DLC armor no stars - anything without an ability next to it means it still has it's unique ability):

    After some digging around, I think I figured out what causes the issues this mod is having. It seems that in "ActorInfo.product.sbyml" the game's version number is wrong. I believe this is the case because when I try to install it using BCML or open ActorInfo it returns this error:  

    in __init__

        raise ValueError("Invalid version: %u-wiiu (expected 1-3)" % version)

    ValueError: Invalid version: 1-wiiu (expected 1-3)

    I would attempt to fix this myself, however as mentioned before I get this error when trying to open the file using the appropriate tools. I get no errors opening any other files in the mod so that's why I'm sure this is the only file causing issue. If anyone knows what to do to fix it let me know and I'll give it a try.

    May I make a request? Your mod is wonderful, but since I love to pair the Hylian hood with the soldier's armor, I find myself without an option for an attack buff. Could you possibly create a version of this mod that makes it so that on the Charge Attack Stamina Up (Royal Guard, Dark Link, Soldier, etc) sets, just like the Hylian set, the chest piece has the attack buff and the head has the buff that would normally have gone on the chest? It would allow much better mixing and matching without sacrificing offensive potential.

    I'm a bit confused with the wording of your description. Does the Zora armor ONLY give a boost to swim speed if you use it as a set now? I almost never wear sets, so while the boost to climbing speed is nice (I guess?), I basically never have a reason to wear the Zora armor now. Same for the Sheikah armor which now gives a boost to snow/sand speed instead of stealth unless you wear it as a set apparently. If this is indeed how it works, I will probably uninstall this and just use the parts that upgrade the DLC armors.

    Hey i was wondering if you could make a tutorial for how you did this. i've been having problems trying to do something similar. i'm trying to edit the cap of time to have ResistCold on it but anytime i change it i see no changes in game. It would be very much appreciated!
