Well, i admit i know very little of k/tsl modding, but i've seen a lot of re-skin mods that suffer from having the skin (and thus the creature wearing it) turn transparent in-game, as far as i know the cause is that the re-skin uses an alpha channel that wasn't in the original skin texture in order to give it metallic shine (mostly done to robe re-skins, but mandalorians in TSL also), but apparently if the texture does not allow for a cm_baremetal alpha channel in (i think) the appearance 2da file then it will definitely have transparent sections in-game (those with the alpha channel).

Hmm, that was a bit unclear perhaps, hope you get what i meant.
