This mod retextures the Stalhrim armour and weapons from the Dragonborn DLC. The aim of this mod was to make the Stalhrim more pleasant to look at, and for it to be more reminisce of actual ice. To do this, I have darkened the leather for contrast, then greyed out the blue and added a reflective cubemap for proper iciness.
All pieces of equipment have been retextured (heavy, light, shield, weapons) and it works for both genders. The textures are the same size as the official HD texture pack (Mostly 2K).

Ore Update: Makes the Stalhrim ore and ore deposits outlandish, since I forgot to do them. Recommended to install!
Better Shaped Weapons Patch: Adds compatibility with LeanWolf's Better Shaped Weapons mod. The swords will be more realistically shaped and retain the altered rendering values introduced in this mod.
Closer Quivers and Longer Arrows Patch: Tweaks the Stalhrim arrows and quiver from EvilDeadAsh34's Closer Quivers and Longer Arrows mod to have the same rendering values as the ones in this mod.
Heavy Armoury Patch: Tweaks the new Stalhrim weapons added in PrivateEye's Heavy Armoury mod to have the same rendering values as the ones included in this mod.
Katana Crafting Patch: Tweaks the new Stalhrim weapons in Lautasantenni's Katana Crafting mod to have the same rendering values as the rest of these weapons.
Stalhrim Extra Crafting Patch: Tweaks the new Stalhrim meshes in Lautasantenni's Stalhrim Extra Crafting mod to have the same rendering values as the ones in this mod.
Stalhrim Helmet Replacer Patch: Tweaks the Stalhrim helmets in Arcticia's Stalhrim Helmet Replacer mod to have the same rendering values and similar textures as this mod.
Standalone version called Ice Stalhrim by ntn9713c.
Blue Cubemap: Makes the Stalhrim much more blue, as it was in the vanilla game.
Pink Cubemap: Make your Stalhrim look like frosted strawberry icecream! Just for kicks and giggles.
Will be compatible with any mods that alter Stalhrim stats or the like, as this mod only replaces the meshes and textures.
Should be mostly compatible with mods that change the armour meshes, however the lighting may be off slightly.
Stalhrim weapon mods are compatible, but they will look different to the ones in this mod. Mods that add Stalhrim weapons will probably require a patch, as the meshes in this mod were heavily altered to appear much more reflective, and other mods may not do the same.
Mods which replace the glacierice_e.dds cubemap will be overwritten. You can choose not to overwrite this file, but the equipment will look much different.
Copy the contents of the archive folder to your Skyrim\Data folder. That's it! Alternatively, you can download with NMM and activate it through that.
Please don't redistribute this mod. If you wish to use these textures in your own mod, please let me know beforehand.
