About this mod

Revamps the weathered banners to have greater detail and a more realistic appearance of cloth, while maintaining their original style.

Permissions and credits


I've been working on this mod for a few weeks now, and every time I get close to a final edit I seem to think of some new technique to try out, leading to days of reworking and a whole new iteration. Even now I have some ideas I want to try out that might make for even more convincing wear and tear effects, but the run-up to Christmas has been suddenly very busy and I wanted to release this now to get some initial feedback before I get too carried away again.

It's still a work-in-progress, so please tell me what you think - I'm still tweaking the final look and will probably make a few overhauls before the next edition. I also have plans for a better-condition version with no tears or rips, and maybe even one with the tears and rips noticably sewn and repaired with patches.

WIP Thread


This mod revamps the banners in Skyrim to have greater detail and a more realistic appearance of cloth, while maintaining their original style. It uses the default game textures for their design and color, but I've added new fabric textures and weathering effects to give them more depth, and spent a long time redoing the alpha channels to improve the fraying pattern. Taking Bethesda's design as a guide, and considering that these banners have to endure years of constant snow, wind, rain, ice, civil wars, and dragon attacks, the banners now look as though they've weathered the harshest of Skyrim's climate.



This mod is a work in progress, and more banners will be added as the project continues. Also, because it's not just a simple resolution increase, I can't make these changes blindly and can thus only mod the banners which I've found in the game. If you happen across one of the ones I haven't covered yet, please let me know where it is!

Included so far:

- Whiterun city banner
- Solitude city banner
- Riften city banner
- Hjaalmarch (Morthal) city banner
- Winterhold city banner
- Falkreath city banner
- Dawnstar city banner
- Imperial legion camp banner
- Stormcloak camp banner
- Mara's temple banner (in Riften)

Still in progress:

- 5 generic color banners
- Potema's banner
- Arkay temple banner
- Mythic Dawn banner
- College of Winterhold banner
- Sovngarde banner
- High Hrothgar banners
- Dwarven ruin banner

Not yet found:

- Thief guild banner
- Summerset banner

Other banners (Windhelm, Markarth, and the Companions Hall) don't have that Swiss-cheese cutout pattern, so they don't really fall into the "tattered banner" category - however, I may revamp those too in a future update to match the look of all the banners.

Again, if you come across a banner that hasn't been covered, please let me know so I can add it to the mod. Thanks!

Thanks to Bethesda for their great art design of the base textures.
