Easier Lockpicking - Without Cheating - Nordic Retexture by Gamwich
QuoteThis mod retextures the locks in Skyrim to be more scratched and weathered looking. This gives more visual reference points to remember your lockpick placement. When a pick breaks, it's easier to find the spot you started from. It makes lockpicking easier, without really cheating... such as using a gradated lock measurement system.
My concept with this texture mod was to make it easier to deal with expert and master locks without resorting to obvious (and lore-breaking) cheats. There is simply more wear and scratches on the outer lock surface to use as visual reference points.
The textures are the default size, so anyone can use them, but I started with the hi-res files, so I packed as much detail as I could into the smaller size. My aim was to make a mod that anyone playing Skyrim on a PC could use.
I admit, this appeals to me. There's not enough scratches for reference points on the vanilla ones.
