HQ Paper by Anarin
Wiki Link 

Just found this mod. 

It covers a bit more than Realistic Paper that we currently use in STEP:

Books, notes, business ledgers, rolls of paper, scrolls, battle maps and the corresponding world objects (such as open books, notes on the wall, etc).

Worth comparing I think. 


Most textures are double the vanilla resolution (512^2 to 1024^2). The low-res images have been scaled up to 4x their original resolution (256^2 to 1024^).

Also including altered meshes. Now all notes have a unique texture + alpha channels. Journal pages are unique and now there are 7 book page textures, opposed to just 1.

      [*]Attempt to gather all the compares from the textures covered as possible.

Looks good. If a admin supports it, it'll be marked for testing.

I assume from the description that this mod uses an .esp? Regardless, I think this might be worth getting some comparison shots. If nothing else, there may be textures that we would want to use, while allowing other to get overwritten (does step include any mods that change the scroll texture?). Would also need comparisons with HQ Skyrim Map.

After doing some in-game comparisons between current STEP (Realistic Paper dark and HQ Skyrim Map) and HQ Paper this is definitely worth a review. Personally, I liked HQ Paper better than Realistic Paper for the books, but preferred HQ Skyrim Map over HQ Paper. I will get some comparison shots posted in next day or two unless someone else does before me.

Worth a compare I think and I would agree on the maps simply because the author does more than just change the paper texure by adding elements to the maps. EDIT: OP Updated with Mod Testing requirements.

Does anyone know where clutter/books/tornpagetext.dds might pop up? You probably wouldn't be able to read it in game, but the text on it is addressed to "PO Box [] San Rafael California 94913," dated "February [], 1958" and obviously the rest of the letter... kind of odd to throw on there.

Here are some comparisons of vanilla/current step/HQ Paper
HQ Paper does not have an esp, it is just textures/meshes.

HQ paper basically seems to be a higher res version of vanilla, I prefer current STEP mods for the look but if improved vanilla is what we are after then HQ paper is closest, from these screenies.

I agree with others that HQ paper is the closest to being an HD version of the vanilla paper textures.
