Conversion of the Pure Steel Blade mod for Oblivion

Permissions and credits
Conversion of a great mod from Oblivion by EuGENIUS V:

Swords are sold by Eourlund, they can be crafted (steel category), improved and enchanted. The stats are similar to the skyforge greatsword.

Ver 1.0:
Initial release.
Ver 1.1:
Changed something after EuGENIUS sent me a PM with an improved .nif, what he changed:
"1. Added alpha to and My fault, it's not too important in Oblivion, but can give some weird specular lighting glitches in Skyrim.
2. Added * files for all textures (just blurred and a bit darkened alphas from corresponding * files). Not sure if it even do something, but... just in case.
3. Added textures\cubemaps\ and weapons\puresteel\bngsword\* to BSShaderTextureSet (may help with reflections\speculars)
4. Restored normalmapping - you forgot to re-create tangents and binormals."

Sorry about the normal maps, it was one of my firsts imports and i didn't really know what i was doing, and i didn't check it when i uploaded :). I reflected this improvements in all the swords, so now visual quality should be much better :).

I didn't make the models nor the textures. So making changes would be pretty difficult: i can model a bit, but this work is much more advanced than my own :).

Drop the Data folder in your Skyrim directory, then open the Skyrim launcher and click "Data
files". Be sure that the PureSteel.esp is checked, then activate "load loose files".
