About this mod

A custom made water texture replacement for Skyrim - on par with Crysis level water

Permissions and credits

NOTE! Water updated to fix the "fast flow" problem and looks much better now =)
(to do this, I used the that came with skyrim, scaled it to my texture, and messed around with the opacity settings to get the desired effect) let me know what you all think in the comments section!

Welcome to my finished release for a high resolution water texture replacement for
Skyrim. The default water looks pretty good in Skyrim, but this small texture mod will
make it look borderline realistic. This texture is based on a very high resolution photography image, made into a seamless texture and then converted to DDS for use in skyrim.

Default texture size = 512x512
My texture size = 2048x2048

Videos - newest version - fixes some of the problems with the water - much more realistic (also features some unique footage of me jumping off the bridge leading to the college of winterhold!)

Simply extract the folder to your skyrim/data - if prompted to merge or replace
files/folders, click yes.


Simply delete the in skyrim\data\textures\water

Note: My version has smoother y-axis depth than others, and it has a small rippling
effect to simulate water on the surface.
