HiRez Armors
Author: Saint Jiub

Mod Description (General)
A series of armor textures for Oblivion which, as the name would suggest, are much higher resolution than the originals, usually double the size. These aren't just upscaled vanilla textures with a sharpen filter though- this mod strives to add new detail that often completely changes the look of the armor, while retaining elements of the original. Designs are inspired by medieval armors primarily, as well a heavy dose of Morrowind and Skyrim, both of which are artistically much stronger than Oblivion as far as textures are concerned. That being said, I think Oblivion's armor models have a lot of untapped potential, which this mod aims to unleash.

Mod Description (Detail)
The Imperial Legion armor is, obviously, heavily inspired by the Morrowind rendition, but altered to look more attractive on the heavy plate the Cyrodiil legion favors. The color scheme is a little darker, in general, because I feel darker textures look better against the bright white of the Imperial city.

It's recommended that you use this with InsanitySorrow's Legion Shield Replacer (http://tesalliance.org/forums/index.php?/files/file/748-legion-shield-replacer/), as I didn't retexture the shield and his mod complements this one very nicely.

All files go in your Oblivion/Data folder. To uninstall, delete everything in the Data/Textures/Armor/Legion folder.

Please ask for my permission if you want to use this mod for something other than its original use. Or rather, feel free to do what you want with it for your own use, but please send me a PM on the Bethesda forums if you plan on sharing it.
