Dead rabbits hanging by bonfires in hunters' camps, or near chimneys inside houses and huts, will never be the same with this high-quality model and texture replacer, which will add a touch of realism to any medieval kitchen in Skyrim.

This mod offers 2 new highly detailed models, 4k textures and 2k normal maps for Skyrim's vanilla 2 hanging dead rabbit variants, originally released in low quality models and using textures and normal maps with a very low resolution of 256 x 256, making the hanging dead rabbits ugly, dated and blurry (as seen in the comparative images in this description). Due to the poor quality of the models, a detailed re-texture of them was never possible, so I decided not only to bring new textures, but also to make completely new models, adapted to the current Skyrim modding standards.

This mod not only stays true to the original concept, but makes the hanging dead rabbits' appearance even better embedded in the overall Skyrim setting. The mod is completely .esp free, so just install the models and textures, and finally enjoy  high quality hanging dead rabbits in your game.

- High quality new detailed models, 4k textures and 2k normal maps replacer for the 2 vanilla hanging dead rabbit variants, 
world objects originally with textures with low resolution of 256 x 256 and very lowpoly models;

OBS- The original models do not have any type of rope or hook attaching them to the structures from which they are hung. I initially modeled a rope around the feet, and even kept the models with the rope in the mod files, but I didn't use them for a simple reason in the final version: the positioning of the vanilla rabbits is not perfect, with each model positioned hanging from a certain portion of the paws, therefore, it would be impossible to place the tied rope at the right height for all the models, without the need for me to create an .esp, and change the positioning of all the rabbits, which, if I remember correctly, are more than 700, which would be unfeasible. My rabbits are positioned almost the same as the vanilla ones, especially on their paws, from where they hang, so they touch objects in the same way that the vanilla ones touch, and, like them, in general, they give the impression of being hung by some kind of hook. However, some vanilla rabbits are poorly positioned, being a few inches from the object where they should be hanging from, so mine will be as well on these rare cases. There's not much you can do about it, and it's a problem that vanilla has too. Putting the rope, as I mentioned, would be impossible without first repositioning the rabbits, perhaps more than half of them, so that they are all tied at exactly the same height by the legs, and as for those that are a few inches from where they should be, the truth is that it basically goes unnoticed.

The mod is not compatible with other mods that modify the textures or model of vanilla hanging dead rabbits objects. If you have one installed, or think you might have one, put this mod below it/them in your load order. If 
you are asked about files overwriting those of other mods, press "Yes to all".

(OBS- If by chance when installing several of Mihail's mods at the same time you are asked about files overwriting those of other Mihail mods or other authors mods, don't worry because they are just the same files shared between mods. I recommend that on these occasions always give preference to the files contained in my mods, and among mine always give preference to the mod you are installing last.)

The Shards of Immersion saga brings small elements that add a touch of immersion and realism to the fantastic world of Skyrim, making it even more alive and dynamic, which seems to exist beyond the adventure of the Dragonborn.

Update on Deadlands development: unfortunately I will be postponing the release of the Project Deadlands first open alpha test to late January 2023. It was initially planned for late September 2022, and later postponed to mid-October of the same year, but circumstances have been delaying me, so instead of delaying it again by another month when October ends, and then by one more at the end of November, I prefer to put a more realistic date already. Unfortunately I have been facing personal, financial and mainly family problems (which end up becoming financial too) that prevent me from being able to dedicate full time to the project at this moment, so I will focus on these remaining 3 months of the year on faster and smaller jobs, so I will continue to be active, and I will not stop producing content, and then on January 1st, with everything more stabilized in my life, I will be able to dedicate myself fully to the project. As I've shared it several times, mainly on my server, I'm not only investing time and effort, but the project also costs money, and right now I can't afford it, nor can I dedicate full time to it. I work practically alone, I do almost everything myself, and it's not feasible for me to continue developing the project this year. Thank you for understanding, and unfortunately unforeseen events arise, and a sequence of them occurred to me in the second half of the year, so I need this end of year to balance things out first. You can check more info about the mod bellow.


New quest mod coming soon: The mod's first open alpha test release was initially planned for late September/2022 but was pushed back to end of January/2023 for better polish. The several hours long adventure takes place mostly in Oblivion, specially on the Deadlands, and is intended for the Champion of Mehrunes Dagon, however, several of the objectives include interaction with other realms and daedra, even in places outside of Oblivion itself: you will travel between dungeons, open areas, underground caves, towns, gigantic daedric towers, and much more.
In January/23 I will relese the first open alpha for community testing and bug finding, also as a show of respect to the users, since the project will take a full year yet to be completed, and i want people to know that the project is being developed, and also providing them a place to have fun while waiting, and at same time this will help me with bug finding, and with ideas for improvment. Quest has 30 acts, each new alpha will feature 3 new acts. Open Alpha Test 1 will feature only the first 3 acts, but already with several hours of content. I plan to release a total of 9 to 10 alphas before the finished release.

Oblivion Gate test

(First test made on testing cell with vanilla interior dungeon lightning, second test made on vanilla
dagon shrine with natural exterior world lightning. I was not happy with my first try (showcased on
the video of the first gate test I published time ago), so i came back and redone the oblivion gate
effects and sounds, and now i like them much more.)

Oblivion Gate test 2

(Final test just to see how daedra exiting the gate would look like. No daedra will come from this gate, but
later on the mod they will come from others, while already in oblivion, specially when travelling between
realms and/or pocket realms. Check the previous testing to see the full working mechanics of the
Oblivion Gates on the mod.)

Mythic Dawn Archvicar lines

(He is the second main NPC of the mod, with Agent Ragna being the first and the central npc of the introdutory
quest "The Sigils of Oblivion". After finishing it, you start the main one, "The Herald of the Second Coming",
and is the Archivar who introduces you to the adventure. (he is using right now my 4k re-texture of Mythic
Dawn Robes, but in the finished version he will receive unique "Mythic Dawn Priest Robes", although
they will not be featured yet on the first open alpha testing release))

Interaction with Dagon at Azrak'ath Ruins

(First communication with Dagon in the end of the introdutory quest "The Sigils of Oblivion". After you
collect the sigil stone you travel to his shrine to enter the gate to the Deadlands. (video is a bit outdated,
on current state the eyes of dagon glow in fire when you approach and he starts talking))

Azrak'ath Ruins boss fight (end of act 1 of 30)

(Final boss of the Azrak'ath Ruins. These ruins are underground Daedric ruins on Nirn, more specifically on the Reach. Here
you complete Act 1 of the mod, and most of the remaining 29 acts take place in Oblivion, about 80% of them in the Deadlands.
In act 1 the introductory quest The Sigils of Oblivion occurs, where you collect the Sigil Stone that will be used to open the Oblivion
Gate that I showed in previous videos. When you enter the gate the main quest The Herald of the Second Coming will then begin.)

Azrak'ath Ruins Mythic Dawn ghosts in the end of act 1

(At the end of Act 1, still on Nirn, in an underground daedric ruin, after you finish the dungeon and acquire the
ritualistic Sigil Stone, several Mythic Dawn ghosts who were killed in this ruin during the Oblivion Crisis,
during an attack by Vigilants of Stendarr, appear to motivate you to go ahead and carry out Dagon's plans,
which start with the Dragonborn opening a portal to Oblivion.)
