Firstly, the original texture is credited to Folixe and his '2K Pickaxe - Damn straight' retexture. Find it here >> http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/4830
It's a high quality retexture for the pickaxe but was a bit too saturated. Since it seems to be the only real standalone HD retexture for the pickaxe available on the nexus and was uploaded in Dec 2011 and hasn't been touched since then by the original author, I edited it to my own liking. I have tried to contact the author regarding permission to use his resources but it seems he has been inactive since Dec 2011 and I doubt he'll reply anytime soon.
This mod is just an improvement, variation based on his texture.
I do not mean to steal credit or resources, I just want to improve on an already good (but outdated) mod and share it for everyone's benefit.
I'm not gaining anything from this so moderators, please don't ban me!
Anyway, I thought I should share it with everyone here since I would like to give something back to the community that has given me so much.
This is my first mod (or mod of a mod, lol) ever. Hope to make more soon.
8 Variants for the pickaxe as follows:
A. Desaturated (Compared to the original): For those that play with sweetFX, FXAA or other saturation enhancing mods.
1. Dark (my personal favorite)
B. Saturated (Closer to the original): For those that play with lower color saturation values.
3. Light (closest to the original)
C. Bonus Vanilla Type Textures: For those that want Vanilla schemed textures.
1. Vanilla Color Handle (Only handle is changed to vanilla like color, metal part same as original)
2. Vanilla Color Scheme (Closest to vanilla, took me a LOT of time, trial and error to get right!! Hope someone likes it, lol)
All the packs have been provided separately and also together in an ALL-in-ONE pack, so download what you want and enjoy!
NOTE: All comparison shots have been taken with sweetFX and Climates of Tamriel active.
Please feel free to use these textures as long as you credit me and Folixe. If you do use them, I'd love to see what you've done.
Please notify me if you find any errors in the textures. This is just a color, brightness, sharpness edit so it shouldn't have any problems. I have already tested all of them anyway.
Thanks for coming to this mod and have a nice day!
