About this mod

A high-resolution, dark version of the Institute weapons.

Permissions and credits

A dark version of the Institute weapons, using Bethesda's High-Resolution pack.
Simply recolouring these textures didn't quite work so I had to draw over a lot of the diffuse and specular maps in order to get them to look exactly how I wanted, so this is more than a recolour, but not a full retexture.
I'm new to this, so if you find any problems or have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know.

One note: This is a replacer. I would love to make this into an optional skin change at a weapons workbench but I haven't found any documentation or videos on how to do so (yet). 

Recommended Mods:

My Dark Synth Uniform
This was my first mod and the reason I have now made this weapons mod. 

Doobot's AS Synth Armor Redone
A fantastic retexture of the Synth Armor with both light and dark version. I think the dark version compliments this mod very well. 

NEVERMOREPJM's Shades of Gradient - An Institute Retexture 4k
This is another mod which I believe does a really good job of adding to the darker aesthetic of the Institute. 

a1a3a6a9's IN-GAME ESP Explorer
The suit can be a little difficult to acquire in-game and this mod is the easiest way to add it to your inventory.

rad666a's Synth Uniform in Institute Lockers
While I haven't tested this myself yet, it seems like an excellent alternative to using the IN-GAME ESP Explorer or adding the uniform to your inventory with a console command. More immersive, too.
