SABRECATS OF SKYRIM - Hi-Res Texture Packs brings 2 sets of 2K replacement textures for the Bethesda vanilla sabrecats of Skyrim (or saber cat, if you prefer). There are two pelts to a pack, one for the standard sabrecat, and one for the snow sabrecat.
Version A has striped sabrecats, and version B has spotted sabrecats.
Now, the files are updated to version 1.1, with an enhanced, more dimensional texture. See if you don't see an improvement. Subtle, but I think it makes a visible difference.
The Bethesda high-resolution textures for two sabrecats are good quality, but they are rather bland in appearance. I thought the sabrecats should have textures that made them more distinct and impressive looking. Who wants bland textures? I've created 2 sets of textures (2 to a set), that allow a simple replacement of the default sabrecat textures. Just pick the set you like most and install it. This can be done with NMM, or manually.
I personally recommend manual installation, because that will allow you to mix a striped sabrecat with a spotted one if you wish. Just mix and match as you like, as long as the textures don't share the same designation (only one standard, and one snow).
I have also included an optional download of the sabrecatpelt files, so you can have matching pelt textures in your inventory menu. Again, they are separated into a spotted set, and a striped set. You can of course manually mix and match these textures also.
Be sure to check out the video section, where Muzzammil12 was kind enough to make a YouTube video of my Sabrecat retexture in action.
Installation: Use NMM, or to do manually, merely unzip the files and install them into your Data folder in your Skyrim game folder.
The file path is [C]Windows > Programs Files or Program Files (x86) > Steam > SteamApps > Common > Skyrim > Data > Textures > Actors > Sabrecat
Uninstall: Deactivate with NMM, or just manually delete (or overwrite) the sabrecat.dds, and sabrecatsnow.dds files.
For the sabrecat pelt files, the file path is [C]Windows > Programs Files or Program Files (x86) > Steam > SteamApps > Common > Skyrim > Data > Textures > Clutter > Sabrecatpelts
Uninstall: Deactivate with NMM, or just manually delete (or overwrite) the sabrecatpelt.dds, and sabrecatsnowpelt.dds files.
Credits: Thanks to Bethesda for creating Skyrim and making the high-resolution packs available, which these textures are based on.
