This mod gets rid of the blocky faces, caused by compression artifacts on the normal maps.
These normal maps have been smoothed and saved using a lossless format.

It affects all characters of the following races:

Imperial
Nord
Breton
Redguard
Dark Elf
High Elf
Wood Elf
Orc

Use the Curse client to install the mod.

Manual installation:

Use 7zip or WinRar to extract the files.
Move the Data folder to your Skyrim folder.

You can find the Skyrim folder here: Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

To those who are new to using Elder Scrolls mods:

- You do not have to extract the .bsa archives. The folder provided by
this mod has the same structure as the inside of the .bsa archive, it will
override the textures that are included in the .bsa file.
- Do not worry about the Data folder that already exists, the folder provided
by this mod will be merged with the existing folder, it will not be overwritten.
