About this mod

This is a modders resource that contains 324 new ground textures.

Permissions and credits
I have made 162 new ground textures for the Hoddminir project and I thought I would share it with you.
The resolution is 2048 px, and all textures are seamless and have normals. There are new grass, moss, leaves, sand and rock textures, with two different color variants of each, in total 324 textures.
Some of the textures will look good on larger areas, but others have details that make them a bit repetitive and probably work better as smaller details.
There are many different kinds of textures, some colorful and some more dull. All may not be useful for you, but hopefully some will be.

I also made a small world space, GroundTexture.esp, with all the textures painted so anyone can see how they look in game, COW in at coordinates 3,3, the worldspace is called Groundtexture.

I have added an Image Library of all textures as seen in game, and Snufkin made a Modders Catalogue of Hoddminir Textures that includes these ground textures.

Don't forget to endorse if you like the resource :)

You can do whatever you want with this mod but all I ask in return is that
you give me credit if you distribute any part of this mod.
If you want to use my textures for something else or change them that is OK.
I give permission to use these textures in mods that are being sold, for money, on Steam Workshop or other platforms
