As you can see in this first screenshot, I have the advanced armors perk.

Advanced Armors

And as you can see from this second screenshot, I can't craft neither scaled nor plate armor. What am I doing wrong?

No Scaled or Plate Options

As added notes in case it helps, I'm playing on PC and I added the advanced armors perk to my character through the console.

Look under the Steel section. Can you see Scaled and Plate there? – IttyBrittyGirlGamer Nov 20 '11 at 14:44

Scaled and Plate armor will show up under the existing category Steel, as they do not require their own materials.

Scaled and Plate armor only show under Steel for me. Are there versions for the other makes that I am missing or do they require alternate perks? – Xantec Nov 20 '11 at 15:11
I thought I looked through all the categories, guess I didn't look hard enough. – Mr Smooth Nov 20 '11 at 15:33
@xantec I just didn't remember exactly where they showed up, so I wrote a vague answer. :P – LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 20 '11 at 16:29
@LessPop_MoreFizz They both come under steel, so I edited your answer. – Mr Smooth Nov 20 '11 at 23:56
