Details
=======
A quick and basic texture replacement to make the crystal balls look less like plastic toys and more like something a mage would actually keep around on the desk. This mod will replace all instances of both varieties of the standard crystal ball objects in the game with my version.

Since the true appearance of glass or crystal requires refraction and reflection, which models in Oblivion largely lack, I went with a clouded crystal look, which fits with some kinds of real-life cut crystal I've seen. In any case, I think it's a big improvement over the originals.
