This is an idea to have more armor pieces than just the basic chestplate, leggings, helmet, and boots. This idea would add more armor slots. I know that this has been requested before, but I believe that the specifics of this particular idea is different than any others.
There would be an armor slot for the Helmet (head), Chestplate (upper body), Plackart (middle body), Vambrace (upper arm), Gauntlet, (lower arm), Cuisse (upper leg), and Greave (lower leg). This would mainly be a mod to make geting armor more difficult, and adding a customization aspect.
