Hey Wastelanders, if any ya'll get down on some Skyrim, I have a few retextures up in that corner of the Nexus...

Detailing the Eldrich-Higher-Res Apocrypha
Detailing the Eldrich-Higher-Res Riekling Architecture

Disclaimer- I don't speak, read or write any form of chinese. The skill book was designed on a purely visual/ascetical basis. If this bothers you, you don't have to use it. Better yet, point me in the direction of appropriate text, and decent fonts so I could fix it.

Now Included for download is my Wasteland Survival Guide Retexture, which has 4 variations on the texture to choose from. Instructions are in the readme.

Hi-Res Books - Skill Book Pack

This is a complete, from the ground up, retexture of all skill books. This mod replaces the skill book textures with larger, more detailed
versions. I enlarged the textures and normal maps to 512x512. Some books retain the "feel" of the original, while being a completely overhauled texture,
while others are a complete re-imagining. All books have been weathered and aged, and some even have random spatterings of blood here and there.

This retexture is in no definitive stage, no alpha, or esoteric numbered version. That being said, things will
be tweaked and fixed as needed. Mainly I will need the input of others to let me know what I screwed up!

The only issue so far with the retexture is the way Bethesda made the texture conform to the mesh, there will be elements from the cover used for the very
edge or border of the books. I will include a picture to illustrate.

1. Extract the Data folder inside of the archive to your Fallout 3 root directory.

2.Edit your Fallout.ini file, located in your 'my games' folder, changing the binvalidateolderfilesvalue to 1 ( binvalidateolderfiles=1).

1. Delete the skill book textures in your clutter\junk folder.

2. Update your Archiveinvalidation text.

You may use these textures in mods, et cetera, just please credit me\or contact me.
