Vivid Landscapes - Imperial Forts

is an overhaul of the old castles and forts across Skyrim.
It adds a high quality texture package combined with UV improved meshes, enhanced with parallax effect.

It was my goal to improve the outdoor area, maybe I will add another mod for all the indoor stuff, not sure now, creating stone walls has become rather annoying.
Some of the textures like the moss and certain walls are also shown indoors.

If you install the same texture size you already use this mod won't affect your performance.

SparrowPrince's "Distant Decal Fix" is incorporated

ENB is not obligatory, it works also with Vanilla only...

If you are using a preset make sure "FixParallaxBugs=TRUE" is set.

Newer ENB's correct parallax-flaws pretty good, I've updated ll my heightmaps for better support.

I suggest to install "Vandr Presents - HD Imperial Tower" first

Special thanks to Dragens and gringo333 for their help and input :)
and of course as always to SparrowPrine for his great mesh improvements.

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 :)
