Retexture of the draugrs.
 

 
 
AMB does not cover armor (surprisingly) nor hair. DRAUGR covers both for both male and females; thus, is a complete replacer.

Compares added to the OP.

 

Sorry about the position shifts. Not sure what happened there. Could have been Enhanced Camera, which I'm thinking about uninstalling. I used the 2K version to match the HRDLC. Hair is also 2K version, but there is an optional 1K version which can be installed (making it only twice the size of vanilla hair).

 

There are a few points I'd like to make:

  1. Color - the color of this mod is more true to vanilla by simply giving them an aged look. AMB changes the skin color to grey.
  2. Hair - this mod covers the draugr hair. AMB doesn't. This mod also makes the hair grey, but it still looks nice.
  3. Armor - this mod covers the armors. AMB, surprisingly, doesn't.

Thank you for these compares. I personally like the new Draugr better than the ones from Book of Silence. (You all will have probably already tested the Performance Textures by Gamwich, which also have 2k Draugr and Troll Retextures?)

No, we haven't. No one has ever added that mod to testing though I've seen it mentioned a lot. If it's going to be tested, it needs a "testing" tag added. We're going to quickly push out this release due to USLEEP so get it added and we'll test it for the next release.

My first reaction was that this one swaps the colors with Book of Silence (silver skin and red beard vs red skin and silver hair), but on a closer inspection I see that it restores some of the vanilla skin coloration and the gray beard seems somewhat more appropriate for Draugr. I'll see if I can find some time to check it out in the game.

I also prefer these Draugrs. When discussing the skeleton mod SRB mentioned that grey isn't a typical color for bones, and I like that this one uses more realistic colors plus has the armor.

I've been using all of Kajuan's mods and they are of better quality overall compared to the default STEP mods that is in use now.

Just need one more Mod or Tester, one more STEP Staff, or a few more community members vote for this one to be accepted.

From the compares, overall I like it the best out of these three, but it's not as clear-cut of a winner as some of the other Kajuan ones looked at recently.

I like the gray hair as it logically makes sense for a draugr. I also prefer a yellowish tinge to the skin over gray, although I do not think they got it quite right in this mod (perhaps it is just the contrast against the walls).

However, I do not like the eyes at all. The glow effect in vanilla is a bit over the top. I think it is about right in BoS (although I would have liked a slight touch more, notice the Draugr's left eye in the first compare (to the viewer's right). However look at the last set of compares...from a distance, the eye glow effect seems even more minimal in this mod.

But again, overall, I do like it the best out of these three.

In game the glow eyes is a good blend, in my opinion. Not too much, but enough. Really helps when exploring dark dungeons, one can jump up when a pair of eyes emerges, not often but still.

I'm torn. Overall I like the body texture for these a bit better but the armor seems slightly better in BoS (which makes a bit of sense). You have my somewhat reluctant vote.

Take the posted compared with a grain of salt where the eyes are concerned. These change so much depending on point of view and they can't be captured accurately when screenshots.

BoS does not cover these armors. I've stated that already. The armor is vanilla.

Gets my vote as well, looks more true to vanilla than AMB and I like the armor.
