i noticed from the screenshot :P ...it's clearly a overextimated first mod....daedric with rust is the real top/flop.... deadric=ebony, ebony=wood....why rust? on side note... i have the photo that the author overlayed above daedric in my reference stock...is from deviantart... just look for rusted steel there ...and probably you'll find it....
the worst thing is the lack or mess with normal maps... really discouraging.

this is actually wrong: https://uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Ebony

sorry...I wrote wood ... the intention was to write glass :/

Lots of updates today. Oblivion and Skyrim-style Daedric sets (I'm curious to see how they compare to the Daedric texture mod included in STEP which looks pretty amazing imo) as well as "fixed" normals. I'd like to hear CaBaL's thoughts regarding the new normals since he obviously knows what he's talking about. I think the textures look pretty great for the most part, but I'm also worried about the VRAM impact this mod could have... I mean it's like 800mb worth of files for everything!

do not worry about vram impact...since author is saving in dxt1... i can bet my last beer that all files are about 2mb for 2048x2048 res...including normals. worry about game rendering instead... since without specular maps everything will look extremely glossy ...including leather,wood,and everything supposed to be NOT glossy -.- in the meantime the true volumes of normal are lost...and the only thing that remain are the small details gimped from diffuse map (morrowind style). really i do not want to sound like a troll or such...honestly i'm not going to replace millenia textures or mine with this eyesore,so i do not really care if it gets hotfiles,fotm, nobel,oscar,a place in paradise at the right hand of god. but some things must be told...since are under the eyes ... but nobody see. also i do not think i have something to envy my problem is that this kind of things brings up "copycat killers".... tomorrow or so someone will think that this is texturing...and it's not...at all

Even though I kinda agree with you after looking at the textures myself, don't post anything like that on the Nexus. They can get a bit touchy with anything that is perceived as negative, true or not, and will most likely ban you.

Yeah, on the nexus being critical = ban. Why I rarely post there and post it all here! LOL

yep.... nexus is quite intolerant about criticism...everything is supposed to be trolling......so instaban... i do not think that somebody wants to be banned for this....or for trying to teach a noob a minimal knowledge of what he is doing.... i already left a comment... something like: "2 photos slapped on a vanilla texture" it's more than enough... the absence of criticism...and the teddy bear mood leads only to bad mods...and bad mods steal attention from the few good mods, which i think is what player want to see

And that's why I only ever post in the STEP thread unless I have questions/problems with a mod, and even then I always make sure to be extra nice.

must been said that this kind of rules bans and so...are somehow necessary for nexus... just imagine if anyone say whatever he want...or do whatever he want (not few ppl there). now... talking freely to stimulate an improvement in things is good (like saiyng... my friend...this mod is a ****....but can be improved i can tell you how )...but very few ppl talk for this reason... mostly ppl just say the first thing that comes to their mind . without heavy moderation nexus probably would not even exist for 10 -12 years as it do. so is somehow rightfull. nexus is for sharing....and find maybe few good artists (i do not particularry love the name"modder"thinking that some ppl do art sometimes)...and probably that's all. to frankly speach , mutual comparison and of course highter-level works are attribute of smaller communities. i'm glad that they exist :)

Well said, and that's what we're hoping to form with the STEP community.  It's amazing how many dedicated people are willing to contribute thoughtfully and discuss matters civilly given the right environment, and that's what will push STEP to be the best it can be.

When civility runs out there is always layer upon layer of dry humor and sarcasm. That is the life blood of long term relationships. It's hard to be angry when you're laughing.

I think it's pretty clear that the STEP team listens, unlike a number of high profile modders on Nexus, not to mention all the shitty ones.

Angry criticism is not always bad, at least not when it's not a leading opinion on your mod.

While I don't like being harsh, out of respect for someones work, the UHDWT package is... In my opinion... Worse than the HD DLC textures even.. Also can't hold a candle to Millenia's very limited work. It's a shame he's too big of a Fallout:NV fan to be bothered to continue working on project. To each there own I suppose.

I cant comment much on the technical details but I really do not prefer the actual look and feel of them at all. They stand out and break immersion.

I vote for taking a second (or third or fourth or whatever is up next, let give the man a chance - we where all nobs once) look at the mod on version 2.0 (while we wait for Cabal's release offcourse)
