Vivid Landscapes - Cliffs and Creeks

is the third mod of my landscape series.

It adds a high quality texture which enhances the tundra & reach landscapes
with different details like plants, lichen, etc..
They are no "real" 3D-objects, but realized by detailed normal-mapping & parallax effect.

Both Main-textures are in 2048, the highmap in 1024,
means if you are already running HD-textures, you won't experience any performance impact.
The meshes are modified to improve their UV-mapping and to reduce stretching.


thanks to hodilton for the vid

about PARALLAX

In simple words, parallax is a advancement of normalmapping...
though the depth-information doesn't get simply "drawn" on the surface, it rather warps
the texture itself in the desired direction.
You can imagine the parallax-texture as kind of radar map like the NASA ones from Venus.
The depth effect can get triangulated out of it.
It is not as sophisticated as high end Tessellation and a much older technique, but still nice :)

ENB i not obligatory, but it enhances parallax with ambient occlusion.

Do get the same look like in the pictures combine this with:
NebuLa1's "Skyrim HD - 2K Textures" (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/607//?)

for the green grass textures use the file "FieldGrass02.dds" from "Skyrim Flora Overhaul"
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/141//?

or the one from "Natural Grass Texture Floor"
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/30164//?


special thanks to ewi65, for giving me permission to use his textures as a base.
