Better Beast Races
- by Xenius

>> Description

This mod gets rid of the angular shapes of the beast races (Argonian & Khajiit) caused by compressed object space normal maps.
The following object space normal maps will be replaced: head, mouth, hands, body.

For these races it was a lot harder to do than the human and elven races, due to
all the small details of fur and scales. I did my best to keep the loss of detail at a minimum.

The new updated version also adds more detailed diffuse- and specular maps.
Now this mod is like a combination of "No More Blocky Faces", "Detailed Faces"
and "Detailed Bodies" for the beast races.

>> Installation

Use 7zip or WinRar to extract the files.
Move the Data folder to your Skyrim folder.

You can find the Skyrim folder here: Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

To those who are new to using Elder Scrolls mods:

- You do not have to extract the .bsa archives. The folder provided by
this mod has the same structure as the inside of the .bsa archive, it will
override the textures that are included in the .bsa file.
- Do not worry about the Data folder that already exists, the folder provided
by this mod will be merged with the existing folder, it will not be overwritten.

>> Uninstallation
