    Sticky
    Version 1.1 makes the carvings easier to see, with enhanced shading and ambient occlusion, so they should be more readable, even at lower resolutions. Some people thought the rustic nature of the textures made it harder to make out the carved figures, so this version should help alleviate that problem.

    The usual stuff... leave comments, queries, quips, and conundrums here. I'll try to read them all, and even respond to a few.

    Cheers,

      If you could make a retexture of stone stairs that would be truly AWESOME!

      You should do like an all-in-one "Gamwich's Immersive Textures of Rustic Immersiveness" or some such as we all have to install all of your stuff anyway. =p

    And I always wanted to see the DLC02 Standing Stones get retextures. Still can't believe how beautiful the Skyrim Stones are now.

    Will there be an all in one mod for all the Rustic Mods that change the textures of Stone, as long as there is a compatible version for the White City mod that changes Markarth and other Dwemer stonework?

      There will be no all-in-one mod..... I've said this many times before. It's not practical, and I don't make FOMOD installers anyway. You will just have to make your own.

    I did something silly, and for a change it worked out just fine. I unzipped all of Gamwichs Rustic mods and piled them into one Data folder, then rezipped (RARed actually) them together into a single package.
     
    No change in the look of these awesome mods, and now they only take up one line in my mod list
     
    P.S.: +1 on 4K lockpicks!

    Hmmm...I hoped the update would contain a 4K version...

    Sorry I couldn't refuse!

    These definitely look infinitely better than vanilla. However, is it possible to humbly request a less weathered/cracked version of them?

    I'm asking because while I agree with the sentiment that they should be old and weathered, sometimes it makes it rather hard to actually see the motif on the stone, which should otherwise be the center of attention. The carvings sort of drown in all the cracks and grooves.

    Or maybe it'd be possible to mark the motif more clearly, using color or shadow or something?

    This actually reminds me of the 5000 year old UNESCO site of rock carvings right here where I live

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_carvings_at_Alta

    Originally, the rock carvings weren't painted but only carved, since they were more clear back then, but when they were rediscovered in the 70's, they were colored bright red to stand out more clearly from the white stone.
    Now I'm not asking you to paint the standing stone carvings in bright red, but you get the idea =p

      I personally don't have any problem making out the images carved in the stone. You can certainly see them fine in my screenshots. I suppose that if your screen resolution isn't that high, or you have lighting the washes them out, that might not be the case for everyone.

      Could I add more dirt in the carvings to provide more contrast?..... I suppose I could. It would be logical if recessed areas got darker with trapped dirt and grime over time.

      I am running Skyrim on medium res yes. My game doesn't look too much different than your screens, and I can certainly see the images as well, they just seem more diffuse with all the cracks and weathering you added to the stones.

      As for lighting I don't have anything that alters outside lighting, apart from running Purity (and no ENB), but that shouldn't make a difference in daytime.

      Anyway, it's not that I cannot see the images, it is more that I wish they were a bit more bold against the background, stood out a bit more, so you notice them more.

      Much obliged if indeed you make a version with more contrasting carvings, that'd just be great!

    Hi there. I don't often comment as a rule (the probability that I'd say something I regret is high), but I have to not only endorse this mod with a click of the mouse, but also to praise the quality in the comment section. Every Standing Stone loading screen before I installed this wonderful mod was garish and bright, far, far too shiny for the amount of weather Skyrim deposits on them. You changed all that. I smile every time I see them: grungy, dull, weatherworn. Superb.
    This mod is a delight. Thank you.
    Thank you so much.

    Hello, I have a question for you - I installed this mod last night (along with a good portion of your other rustic mods) and for some reason all the standing stones in my game have disappeared entirely! Is this a mod conflict do you reckon, or should I try adjusting my load order?

      That's odd. I don't know of many replacers for the standing stones, so I don't know what mod conflict that would be. You could try loading my textures last and see if that makes a difference.

      Ah I found the problem! I didn't notice it before, but apparently this file shares data with the rustic alchemy and enchanting tables mod. After I uninstalled that this one worked

      It shouldn't. If it's that stupid "thumbs" file, then you can just overwrite it..... it serves no purpose.
