1.
DESCRIPTION
===============

This mod replaces over 70 loading screens with the best suiting images I could find. Everything is wallpaper type material. Clean, high resolution screenshots with no HUD's or any text on screen. No skimpy imagery. The goal is maximum visual quality combined with lore.

The mod only replaces the .dds files without using an .esp therefore should be compatible with everything else.

ADDITIONAL INFO
==================

- The mod is very lore friendly!
- All pictures were properly cropped, and converted to 1920x1080 (HD Version). Optionally, the vanilla 1024x512 resolution is available.
- The old monitor screen foreground, glare and the brighten effects were removed.
- This took many hours. I've searched for the best pictures I could find.

CREDITS
==========

The 16:9 ratio that I'm forced to use on Fallout 3 does absolutely no justice to the original work.

=================

- Initial Release

Version 1.1
- Added 10 loading_goatslideXX.dds files

loading_army.dds
loading_gnr.dds
loading_goatslide01.dds
loading_goatslide03.dds
loading_radking01.dds
loading_radking02.dds
loading_screen_bethsoft.dds

Version 2.0
- Added HD version using native 1920x1080 resolution.
- Added a proper border around the screen **

** Bethesda made the slides scroll at a light angle, sometimes the left upper corner and right bottom corner don't cover the screen fully and it doesn't look right. The border around the screen visually looks similar to the edge of a slide and hides the aforementioned artifacts.
