This is an overlooked single retexture, worth including into the STEP Compilation by the author of Book Covers Skyrim.




A completely new replacement texture for the Map of Dragon Burials (000BBCD5) which you initially find on Delphine's table. This is original and created by hand.

In the vanilla game, the texture used on the map is only 512x256 and is understandably very fuzzy. The HRDLC increases that to 1024x512 which, while significantly sharper, still looks a little low quality. I took a piece of parchment from a stock image which I have permission to use, gave it a rubbing of what I assume is some kind of walnut stain (I tried to replicate the grey chalk of the original but was not satisfied with the result), masked the rubbing with the relief from the Dragonstone itself, added the charcoal outlines and then used red ink instead of the original red crayon. Once some dirt and further staining was applied to the edges, the result was a new and highly effective replacement for the Map of Dragon Burials.

I can't remember but I do think it is actually included in Book Covers Skyrim now. I don't have a Skyrim install to check however.


EDIT : Yes, checking the Changelog shows it was added to BCS in version 3.3.
