Normal maps to go with Morrowind Styled: https://www.nexusmods.com/morrowind/mods/46051
You can technically use these without installing Morrowind Styled, but I can't imagine why you'd ever want to do that; it would look awful.

The normal maps will give the appearance of impasto -- thick, layered paint, as opposed to the smooth watercolor effect you'd normally get. It's up to you whether this is an improvement or not (see screenshots and/or just try it out). I think it's nifty, if nothing else.

Brief instructions for how I generated the normal maps are in the articles tab, so you can make your own patches, add-ons, and
modifications.

To enable normal maps in OpenMW see: https://openmw.readthedocs.io/en/stable/reference/modding/convert_bump_mapped_mods.html#activating-normal-mapping-shaders-in-openmw

Note: Bodies  & faces are not included, because they look really bad. Like, seriously, I'm going to have nightmares about some of the faces.
