Hey, Listen!

V3.5(.1) is Live!

For 2k, you have 3.5.1 which removes the duplicate .copy files. 
For 1k I removed the .copy files before uploading, so you're all good.

This update will replace the Rift Fall textures with some that are MUCH better. Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions
(Like, really frequently)

Q - Will you make a 1k version?
A - Yup! It's in the files section!

Q - Will there be a 4k version?
A - No. I made these in 2k. Upscaling to 4k would lose much of it's quality.

Q - Will you make a parallax version?
A - That is the plan once the whole set is done and I can find someone to make it

Q - I don't like loose file downloads, can you make a BSA please?
A - I tried and it didn't work for people. So I'm keeping it as a loose file download for now.

Q - Is this better than **** Texture pack?
A - I have no clue. It's totally up to you what you like and if it blends well with other mods you have.

Q - Will this work with **** mod?
A - Yes, it works with all mods. Just install Skyland and let it overwrite everything. If you don't like it, just uninstall and everything goes back to how it was before.

Q - Can I see how this compares to **** Texture Mod?
A - A video comparison will be uploaded shortly.

Q - This one thing doesn't look right. What's wrong with your pack? 
A - Nothing is wrong with it. I swear, if you turn the Skyland mod off and run vanilla textures, it will look just as bad. Welcome to Skyrim and Bethesda landscapes.
