1. Description

***************************************************

The aim of this pack is to combine close range stunning
photographical detail of Qarl texture pack 2 with mid range
pleasant non-tiling effect of Captnkill landscape pack. In order
to achieve this mipmap levels have been manually and carefully
tweaked. This is an add-on for Qarl texture pack 2 (needed).

Full credits are reserved to Mikal33, who took care of the most
difficult part of the project, making mipmaps better tiling, for
the 1.1 version. without his precious work this mod would have
been updated very slowly.

2. Version History

***************************************************
V1.11 Minor update: terrainsnow01_n.dds has been tweaked because
was too flat

V1.1 Major update featuring over 70 textures, thank to great
Mikal33 contribution. This includes fixes for some normal maps
alignment in original Qarl pack (landscape and rocks folders).
Courtesy to Mikal33 who noticed the bug.

v1.0 initial release. Only grass textures are provided (19 files)

3. Installation

***************************************************

To extract this file you will need 7zip (www.7-zip.org).


To install the pack:

Be sure to have Qarl texture pack 2 installed.
Extract this package into Oblivion/Data folder.

To uninstall:

Re-install Qarl texture pack 2.

IMPORTANT: this package is and add-on for Qarl-texture pack 2.
Normal maps are not provided, so if you're planning to use this
package stand-alone or in combination with other landscape
texture replacers you'll have to retriev normal from Qarl pack.

4. Landscape LODs/Extra Modder Resource

***************************************************

Landscape LODs for this package are provided. You can find them
at the following links,

2048x2048:

4096x4096:

Extra Modder resource

Important for those who are planning to generate landscape LOD
textures for this pack through CS. The CS uses base textures to
generate LODs. For proper working you'll have to generate LODs
starting from higher mipmap levels. I provided a pack of small
128x128 textures (CS_LODs.7z). Here's the procedure:

Unpack CS_LODs.7z into your Oblivon/data folder.
Start the CS and generate LODs.
Reinstall the pack.

Remember, if you are planning to modify these texture's don't
give up or automatically regenerate mipmap levels, otherwise
you'll revert into Qarl pack.

5. File requirements/Compatibility

***************************************************

File requirements:

Qarl texture pack 2 (http://qarl.rpgmods2.com/Qindex.html)

Compatibility.

This package will overwrite other landscape texture packages.
For instance:

Jarrods Oblivion New texture Mod
CaptnKill non tiling textures.


And.....yes, it is compatible with OOO 1.3
