About this mod

This mod replaces the textures of town guards\' shields and hold banners with new, much more detailed versions.

Permissions and credits
The textures for the city guards' shields and the hold banners have been completely remade from scratch with much higher detail. They are now 4 times as big as the original ones.

Please take a look at the screenshots which show all the new textures.

Info update:
Better Banners will now be a separate project and they will no longer be included in this mod. So far, the banners project is on hold.

Update 29 November 2011:
Added worn-out version. Includes the worn-out textures for all the guard shields. Look for optional file under the downloads. Check out the screenshots too.

As of the current version 0.5, this mod improves the following textures:
Guard Shield - Solitude
Guard Shield - Pale
Guard Shield - Whiterun
Guard Shield - Windhelm
Guard Shield - Hjaalmarch
Guard Shield - Falkreath
Guard Shield - Markarth

Hold Banner - Solitude

In the upcoming versions, more hold banners will be improved.

Installation and removal instructions are included in the readame file in the mod's archive.

To get the best out of your visual gaming experience and of this mod, I highly reccomend you to try the Skyrim Enhaned Shaders mod, found here:
with "no bloom, high saturation" ini file.
