About this mod

Replaces over 400 of Daggerfall's models and flats with new high quality models that are faithful to the original game.

Permissions and credits
This mod replaces models and 2d flats in Daggerfall with optimized high quality models with handpainted textures. I take great care in making the new models consistent with the original game. All of the design features from older models/textures is preserved where possible with some creative license taken to add more detail. The handpainted style is commonly used in video games, for example World of Warcraft, and I feel it fits in much better with Daggerfall's vibrant art style compared to photorealistic textures.

The mod also builds upon the original game by creating model variations that only show up in specific regions and seasons and fixes visual bugs such as floating objects wherever possible.

Current count (v2.10): 420 models 

Some of the older models are extremely low-poly with little or no distinctive texture work so it's very hard to make them both look good and true to the original but I always try my best to preserve as much of the model as I can for example:
