Elven Weapon Retex Pack - TCS

Entire Collection

Quick Note: This readme was typed for SkyrimNexis, so there are likely things in here that are irrelevant to this site. I dont' care.

Hey, finally managed to get this retex pack done after six hours of texture editing,

screenshotting, and image editing. The majority of the work actually went into the
screenshotting and screenshot editing, lol..
If you like the mod, let me know in your comments.
Also, don't hesitate to endorse, because it really helps in getting more views in the long run.

NOTES

  • If you want more screenshots to convince you, download the Screenshot Package archive. Why? It has over 200 screenshots.
  • The textures no longer cause lag like in my sword retex beta (see below), as they are now 1024x1024, rather than 1536x1536. This cuts the size down by almost 1mb and improves the way the mod runs immensely.

Install

To install, extract the texture folder into:
Steam > SteamApps > Common > Skyrim > Data
If you are asked to merge the folder, say yes.

For the textures to take effect, you need to navigate to:
Skyrim > Data > textures > weapons > elven
In the "elven" folder are eight other folders, named after each weapon.
Go into each folder and remove the "colour name" from the file name.
So, for example, in the "swords" folder, if you want to use the "dark" texture, change "sword_d dark" to "sword_d"

!!!!YOU MUST DO THIS TO ALL WEAPONS FOR THE MOD TO WORK!!!!

If you wish to change textures to another one, add the text back into the file name of the currently used texture, and remove it from the one you want to use.

Disable

To temporarily disable the mod and revert back to the original textures, navigate to:
Skyrim > Data > textures > weapons > elven > (weapon folder)
In the weapon folders corresponding to the weapons you want to disable, rename the currently used texture (the one without a "colour name" at the end) so it is no longer one of the following:

elvenbattleaxe
bow
dagger_d
greatsword_d
handaxe
mace
sword_d
elvenwarhammer

If the file is no longer one of the above, the "texture path" will be broken, and the game will return to using the textures packaged in "textures.bsa"

Uninstall

To uninstall, navigate to:
Skyrim > Data > textures > weapons > elven > (weapon folder)
In each weapon folder, delete the following textures:
(note: there will always be a missing file in each folder, because you need to rename

one for it to be active (unless you copy it and then rename it..))

elvenbattleaxe blue
elvenbattleaxe dark
elvenbattleaxe golden
elvenbattleaxe light

Legal and Thanks

No one may use my textures without notifying me first. If they are used in screenshots, a note must be made on the screenshot description to say where to get the textures. Why? It's nice to show people where all the fancy mods on your screenshots came from.

If you wish to upload this to a site outside of skyrimnexus or skyrimforge, you MUST message me so we can sort something out.

Thanks to Bethesda for the great game and for the textures I edited to make this.

Tools used were Photoshop and 7zip
