I never liked how every single destruction staff in Skyrim looked identical to every other (barring the forsworn).
so I put together this little texture mod to give the staffs some more flavour.
All the Ice type staffs have the Ice texture, all the Fire type Staffs have the Fire texture, and all the Lightning
type Staffs have the Lightning texture, there are still 1 or 2 vanilla textured staffs in the game.
The Forsworn Staffs have also had a minor change in that now the crystal in the staff glows & is a little more fire like.
It's ONLY a texture change, the staffs function exactly the same as in Vanilla.
2K Version 1.10 also available at Steam
Also to end this now;
(countable and uncountable; plural staffs or staves or staff) A musical staff.
1. (plural staffs or staves) a long, straight stick, especially one used to assist in walking.
2. (music, plural staves) A series of horizontal lines on which musical notes are written.
3. (plural staff) The employees of a business.
4. (uncountable) A mixture of plaster and fibre used as a temporary exterior wall covering.

both "Staffs" and "Staves" can be used as a plural for "Staff". the only time it matters is in the 2nd definition, not in the 1st that this mod title means, I have chosen to use "Staffs".

Wiki Staff

Simply move the folders from the archive to your Skyrim data folder;
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data
Or extract directly to that location this is a first release and you should not need to overwrite anything.

Should work as far as I know. (I don't use it myself, I prefer Wrye Smash)

A few people have experienced a shudder on swapping over to a staff with the mod installed, I myself do not experience this and am unsure on how I can help their situation.

Added Glow map and small edit on crystal of Forsworn staff.

Added Lightning/Storm staff texture with Glow Map

Glow Map for Fire staff Fixed.

Initial Release

Thank you S.T.E.P. team for adding this mod to the S.T.E.P. Guide.

Thank you to Yuril for allowing me to Edit his Ice & snow textures.
I recommend both of the Mods he made that I have used textures from;
Real Ice
Alternative Snow

Thank you to Urwy for his tips in NifSkope.
