HQ Skyrim map
German Version can be found here! (2.0 Update! 21th Dec)
This mod replaces the old maps ( ...textures\dungeons\imperial\battlemap01.dds,battlemap02.dds&battlemap01_n.dds) of skyrim with a new, more detailed map. Old resolution was 512x512, the new one is 2048x2048 or 1024x1024.
The new maps in version 2.0 are done by Grace Darkling.
The colored map which shows only the regions was actually a work of her I found during some "skyrim map" googleing.
Originally she made a big Wallpaper on DeviantART which looked very cool.
I asked her if I could use it for my mod and if she had a source file where you can see more of skyrim than on the Wallpaper.
It turns out that she had already made some oblivion mods and would be happy to help me with my project.
At the end she not just made a totally new version of her wallpaper for the battlemap02 replacement, she also took a photo of her english map from the collectors edition and did some photoshop magic with it, so I could upload a new, better looking map with a doubled res compared to the old one I made of some leaked scan, translated and edited from the russian map.
simply extract with 7zip, move the textures folder to your ...Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\DATA and overwrite if prompted!
if you want to remove the textures, simply go to "...data/textures/dungeons/imperial/" and delete battlemap01, battlemap01_n and battlemap02.dds,
-Added 2.0: 3 New Files-> 1 Normalmap, 2 Maps of Skyrim. 2048 and 1024 Versions.

Thanks Charlie (Grace Darkling) for everything!
