 DESCRIPTION
----------------------------------------

This mod is a high-resolution texture replacement for in-game all visible Moon phases.
Replacement Moon is much brighter, more like real Moon, and uses 1024x1024 texture size instead of vanilla 512x512.
Images for textures were taken from open-source space simulation program - Celestia.

 INSTALLATION
----------------------------------------

1. Unzip contents of the archive into Fallout 3 "Data" subfolder.

2. If you DON'T use Archive Invalidation Invalidated, step to point 3, else that's all.
