Ruins Clutter Improvement by raiserfx

This mod has been added to the STEP Compilation.
 
Hello,

I just wanted to bring this mod to your attention. From reading the comments, seems that this mod does NOT conflict with SMIM or Re-Defined Dungeons WIP, both of which you have included in the STEP guide.

Dungeons puzzle pillars, the puzzle doors and random clutter have been updated and are vastly improved in my opinion.

Please review this mod for consideration to be added to the next iteration of the STEP guide.

Great catch! PS: Seems tailored for STEP since, as Drache pointed out, no mods still covers those textures, and the quality is okay. Definitely a must-have!

Make a savegame in a dungeon looking at each item. Now take screenshots with the standard step mods, now exit and install nordic ruins overwriting all and reload the savegames and take comparison screenshots.

An great example of what a dash of Wrye Bash and a bit of documentation can achieve ;)

That is one way to do it... :P

Isn't there an app to compare textures file too? Thanks...

You can Google the Comressonator for that. Very nice, however, you will not see it in proper context (i.e., wrapped around the mesh). I know that you can use NifScope and the CK to do this, but not sure if normal maps are rendered accurately in each of those.

That's a solid improvement. Those vanilla carved symbol textures in particular are dreadful.

Haven't tested this myself. Any word yet on which versions are better for the conflicts?

This one looks really good in game and should definetly be included. I actually just overwrote my other files with this one and I am happy with the results. So far the only change I am not crazy about is the candles but the rest is really nice work.

This mod is extremely well done and perfectly complementary with all the other STEP mods. This is because it was designed to work with 5 other STEP mods (Static Mesh Improvement Mod - SMIM by Brumbek, Re-Defined Dungeons WIP by Gizmo, Nordic ruins objects retexture by Mordimer, Ruins urn retexture by Mordimer, HD Linens by rivybeast ).
Highly recommended. Improved candles and HD Claws must be uninstalled before installing this (they have additional files that will conflict and look like crap), all other conflicts should be overwritten by this (should be installed after Redefined dungeons and skyrim redesigned). I recommend HD Claws and Improved Candles be removed from STEP.
