About the Mod
The Virtus Imperii project aims at providing a re-fined and more imperial look to the whole Vanilla Imperial gear. It will give them a more ancient Roman look while preserving all the symbols and characteristics of Tamriels Empire. This is the final cut of my work on the Imperial gear which includes all armours and weapons of my previously released Virtus Imperii mods + the re-mastered Penitus Oculatus and General Tullius armours.
Virtus Imperii provides lore friendly HD re-textures and re-colours of the vanilla Imperial armours and weapons which give them a more unique and visually pleasing look. It is compatible with all body conversions for UNP, CBBE etc. which do not alter textures.
All textures have been thoroughly compressed and are at about the size of the Beth HD DLC textures for maximum compatibility and performance.
About the looks of it images can say more than thousand words of mine - especially since I had the honour to be able to get some of the greatest screenarchers on the Nexus as beta testers for my work. Be sure to check out their remarkable work in the gallery on this front page and in the image section of this mod.
Although I call this a final version I still may work on the files and add some optional variants if there is enough interest.
Imperial Heavy Armour - complete for both genders
Imperial Studded Armour - complete for both genders
Imperial Light Armour - complete for both genders
Penitus Oculatus Armour - complete for both genders
General Tullius Armour - complete for both genders
Imperial Weapons - complete
Imperial Shields - complete

Delete the file via NMM or manually by deleting the files contained in the mod folder within your Skyrim "Textures" folder.
