[size=8]Are you tired of looking at Low-Res chests every time you loot them? If yes,then this mod is for you!!![/size]

Rich_1024 : Vibrant Rich Textures(Clean and Bright Skyrim, 1024x1024 texture maps)

About The New

This is the newest and final addition to this Detailed Chests Mod. It IS included in ALL versions. This texture does NOT have a WashedOut or Dirty version. It is a Clean and Rich texture as a High Chest should be. You will not find a snow covered version of this texture in this mod, as there is no snow covered texture for the in vanilla Skyrim.


I recommend WashedOut_Dirty 2048x2048 for best visual effect(I'm currently using this replacer)

If you have changed your settings, or added mods/texture replacers that brighten up or increase the saturation levels of the Skyrim world, I recommend using the original Rich or Rich_Dirty versions to blend better into your game.


1. Q: Will these textures affect the performance(FPS) of my Skyrim game?
A: It might, use the best version that suits your gaming pc. There are different size texture maps to choose from.(If you're running your game with High or Ultra settings without issues,2048x2048 texture maps are recommended. Pc's with lower performance should use the 1024x1024 texture maps)

2. Q: Are you going to make dirty scratched up versions of this mod?
A: I already did, you can find the new files in the download section.

3. Q: Can I use your textures in my own mod?
A: Maybe! PM me and we'll talk

4. Q: Can you make another version with bla..bla..bla..bla..or change bla..bla..bla?
A: NO, There are 8 versions of this mod already. You should be able to find one that suits your desired gaming preferences.
