Skyrim Ultra HD Texture Pack by Mystery Modder & Skunky123



DESCRIPTION



This pack contains all of Mystery Modders previously released miscellaneous texture mods and many more new textures. All textures are of high quality the resolutions are up to 4k where needed but are kept as low as possible to still hold the detail. Most will be 2k and 1k and they also have their own custom made normals.
The textures have been made with an intention to keep them to look the same as or as near to the original vanilla design as possible but give them a much needed boost in quality and detail, some have been changed but made to be as lore friendly as possible.

The main focus of this mod will be to re-texture many of the things other packs including the official hi res packs do not.

If you are already using any of Mystery Modders previous mods that are included in this pack and have them installed with NMM you should uninstall them first (A list of included mods is at the bottom of this page).

The only previously released mod that is not included in this pack is Mystery Modders Beautiful Whiterun. This is to big to add to the pack so if you want an ultra detailed vanilla looking whiterun head there and grab it.

This pack will be updated when more items have been completed and the update list info will be at the bottom of this page.

Constructive criticism and ideas or requests for this mod are welcome just leave a comment or PM Skunky123.


Please check out the images section for before and after screenshots i will make as many as i can. Most will be taken on high setting not ultra so would look much better in game if you use ultra settings.
All the before pictures are vanilla and are taken from the official high res texture pack if they were included in it. Most of the texture were not included in the official high res pack so they will be the original textures.

In the optional files section i will add whatever lower res textures i get of items that are already contained in the main file for those people who want them.


DON'T FORGET TO TRACK THIS MOD FOR FURTHER UPDATES THAT'S THE GREEN BUTTON TOP RIGHT OF PAGE

Thanks and positive feedback is always welcome so thanks to all who take a little moment of their time to comment, hope you enjoy the textures.


COMPATIBILITY



This pack should be compatible with any and all texture packs that keep to the vanilla style just overwrite when asked if you want to use all these textures.


REQUIREMENTS



None really although some of these textures are large and 1 GB of VRAM or more would be of an advantage 2 GB would be ideal.
Some textures are for DLCs but do not worry about installing this pack if you do not have the required DLC as the files will just not be used and do no harm.
Also please note that the game engine has limited memory resources being in the region of 3.1Gb RAM and when you step over that mark that's when your computer says NO, so pick and chose your favorite textures carefully if you don't have the memory.
If people are really struggling and would like a lower res version of some items some can be found by clicking the links of my previously uploaded mods,there you will find lower res versions in the optional section for most things.


INSTALLATION



Easy Installation:
Use NMM for easy install/uninstall.

Manual installation:
Just unzip the data folder into your steamsteamappscommonskyrim folder and merge the data folders and overwrite if asked. BE WARNED THERE IS NO EASY UNINSTALL IF YOU DO IT MANUALLY SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING.


USER INPUT YES THAT'S YOU!

SPECIAL THANKS



A special thanks goes to Sukhonali for allowing Mystery Modder to use his mammoth skull and rib cage textures to work on. These textures have been color changed so they match with other bones and have also had new normal maps made for them.

Tools and tips used in this pack by Mystery Modder



Corel Painter 13 = The best art software a must have. "And another lifetime to try it all out" you also need a pen & tablet.
With its hundreds of customizable brushes painter could easily achieve what all plugins could do.
With a brush draw sand, grit, moss, rust damage, carve into wood or metal for real looking embossed damage etc etc.
Offering much more flexibility, Painters Real Bristle technology replicates traditional art supplies more realistically than any other software,
paper textures and wet and dry media that look and feel just like the real thing!
Painter is also able to open & save PSD files so its cross with Photoshop and maintains layers.

for a quick overview how a brush can be used to texture a stone, click the link
http://www.digitalimagemagazine.com/blog/featured/tutorial-use-corel-painters-papers-for-texture/

The plugins recommended below will work with Corel painter or adobe Photoshop.

Flaming Pear plugins:
Lacquer = part used for visual enhancements on giants skin, bone,"falmer stuff" hagravens & the like
Super blade pro = i use for extra texturing
India ink = i use for creating extra detailed shading layers, then i select the black only, then undo back to original art, then paste as a new layer

Kpt6 plugins:
Gel = excellent for hand drawing metals, glass, illumination, etc.

If you are using both Photoshop and painter, then you need only install the plugins for one of the apps,
Then simply point say Photoshop plugins extra source directory to the painter plugins folder where you have just installed to, then close and restart Photoshop.

a favored work mode
1. open an image, click the select- menu button & choose color select, "color range in Photoshop" & use to make a selection
2. apply a filter, or do your edit
3. make a copy of it, look under' edit - copy
4. in the history window delete right back to the original color selection
5. now choose, edit - paste "that original color range selection puts it in the correct place as a new layer, then disappears"
6. repeat process, in the layers tab select bottom layer, select- color range, etc etc.

as you end with separate edits in their own layers you have stacks of flexibility, especially useful if you wish to compile bump maps and inverts from individual layers. As an extra you could also try setting layers to other than the standard normal.
