MWSE Daleth's Book Jackets
 
Description
 
This is an MWSE implementation of Daleth's Book Jackets, using MWSE-lua to give each book a unique cover with no plugins required. This improves both performance and compatibility, plus frees up space in your load order.
 
The "00 Core" directory contains the MWSE-lua files that change the covers and icons of the game's books, along with the meshes, textures and icons from Daleth's Book Jackets (which are required for the mod to work). The fixed mesh for A Dance in Fire, Chapter 4 (that was included in "Book Jackets Alt" and "Book Jackets Fix") is included in the 00 Core directory.
 
Additionally, there are three optional directories with alternate versions of a few books:
 
Alt Special Flora of Tamriel: Contains alternate, more subtle, texture and icons for this book. From "Book Jackets Alt."
 
No Glow Mapping: Removes the glowmapping from the books The Book of Daedra and The Firmament. From "Book Jackets Alt."
 
Alt The Firmament: A more subtle version of this book that doesn't stand out so much. From "Book Jackets Fix" by Petethegoat.
 
Installation
 
Use a mod management tool such as Wrye Mash, or just copy the MWSE, Icons, Meshes and Textures directories to your Data Files directory, along with those from any of the optional sub-packages you want to install.
 
Do not use the original Book Jackets plugins along with this mod. That would defeat the purpose of using MWSE.
 
Requirements
 
This mod requires MGE XE and the latest version of MWSE 2.1. Just install MGE XE and run MWSE-Update.exe to download the latest build.
 
Recommendations
 
I highly recommend using Melchior's Magnificent Manuscripts, in particular the Book Jackets compatibility patch from that mod, which improves many of Daleth's meshes. Just install the Book Jackets patch from MMM after this mod.
 
Compatibility
 
This mod should be compatible with basically anything. It's more compatible than the original Book Jackets plugins; you can use any mod that changes books along with this one with no need for an object merger like tes3merge.
 
If you use a plugin that changes the meshes or icons of the affected books, those changes will be overridden by this mod.

Credits
 
This mod would obviously not exist without Daleth and the enormous amount of work he put into Book Jackets (Tribunal, Bloodmoon). The meshes, textures and icons in this mod are almost all Daleth's work.
 
Also included is the work of the unknown author of "Book Jackets Alt," who fixed the mesh for A Dance in Fire, Chapter 4, and also created the alternate version of Special Flora of Tamriel and the no glowmapping fix.
 
In addition, the alternate version of The Firmament (which I much prefer) is from Petethegoat's "Book Jackets Fix."

Usage
 
You can use the MWSE-lua code in this mod however you want. If you use any of the meshes, textures or icons, be sure to credit the original creators.
