About this mod

A proof-of-concept texture and mesh mod for some of the heavy armours that now has environment masks enabled. Made with textures derived from the aMidianBorn Book of Silence.

Reflective Vanilla Armours
It's a proof-of-concept mod that enables environment masks for some of the heavy armours in Skyrim that did not have them. I derived the textures from the aMidianBorn Book of Silence (with express permission from CaBaL120 himself), and blackened out the parts that aren't subjectively supposed to have reflection enabled.

I have plans to extend this to other armours like Iron, Imperial, Ancient Nord (Draugr), Nordic Carved, Dragonplate and Dragonscale. However, given my lack of skill and time in making good textures, I hope that this inspires someone to make high-definition environment mask textures.

Environment mask maps are compressed.

Follows the Bethesda High Resolution Texture Pack resolution sizes. 

See uploaded images for the differences.
