The third outfit in the Cate Archer outfit collection is the winter outfit. It’s an orange, fuzzy coat with white boots, collar and gloves. She’s also wearing a turquoise sweater and a cute orange hat. The outfit uses heavily modified meshes and textures from NOLF, and Poison Ivy’s amazing skirt mesh, which folds like real fabric! Thank you for making it, it made this outfit so much better! The coat isn’t perfect, but I did my best in making it TRLE compatible. I hope you’ll like it, it took a long time to get the textures right (and they’re still not entirely perfect)! Still wondering how Cate manages to stay warm in such an open outfit though… :P NOTE: This is an old outfit; created some months ago, but has remained unreleased due to some issues making a new stretch mesh to make the coat better, plus various projects going on. I decided I’d release it now, though, so I hope you’ll like it!
Winter / Seasons
Originality: There are many Cate Archer outfits, but I just think that it will be unfair to give you less than 10 because you make best C.A. outfit line. Usability: It is usable for No One Lives Forever winter levels… It is usable for what is created ;) Quality: There are no bugs detected. I didn’t see any holes, or disappearing polys. Anyway, I hope you will work more with shadows… Textures: They may look little bit weird in Strpix, but when you open that outfit in game they will look fine. Hair is fine, as head (ok, I hope you will work more with eye-makeup). Coat textures are fantastic, they really looks good and realistic. The best things are knees textures, because they look somehow like real, lol! I like your textures! Meshes: MrNiceGuy, please don’t hate me, but I really think that there are better solution to make that coat. That skirt meshes from Poison Ivy are one of the best things released for trle, but I think they are not much usable this time, because bottom of coat looks funny. I’m not sure, but I think you have change bottom of it from original idea of that outfit, I have seen some screenshots and it’s not same. It would be better if you just add to hip-mesh rest of coat, if you understand me… Or you could use meshes from P.I. and make it little bit more shorter and more sexy, :P. Anyway head is as always fantastic (but I also hope you will change it little bit so that she looks more like from last version- more beautiful), shoes are also good, and I’m so sorry, but overall mesehs are not ten... Please don't kill me or revenge to me...:P Overall: You are one of the best builders, and I know you know that, and I hope you will forgive me that I didn’t give you maximum points for meshes :), and I know that you have said ‘’ The coat isn’t perfect, but I did my best in making it TRLE compatible’’ but I think you could do better. I truly hope you will continue with C.A. outfit line, and I hope next outfit will be some beautiful blue also winter outfit that I have seen somewhere, and I hope you will work on some things that I have mention. Good work! Don’t stop!

Original: I'm a big fan of NOLF and I'm always glad to see new Cate Archer outfits. It's very special and unique for TR so I'll give you the full score. Quality: Everything works but as White Tiger said the coat looks not very good at the lower end. All other parts of this outfit are perfect and bugless. 9 of 10 points because the coat. I'm sorry... Useable: Are you planing to infiltrate a russian base or take a winter holiday? With this outfit you must never freeze if you don't want to. The full score says everyhting! Custom textures: Just like the real Cate Archer. All is perfect placed and rotated. So full score again! Custom meshes: Almost everything is perfect but not her coat. That's why I can't give you the full score. 9 of 10 points. But after all it's still one the best outfits here. Just give it a try.
