More Colorful Bug Jars
Author: Mentha
Version: 1.2
Release Date: November 9. 2018
Category: Models



More Colorful Bug Jars is the ninth installment of the More Colorful series. From critters to clothing, I have tried to make Skyrim more colorful. More Colorful Bug Jars replaces the vanilla bug jars with a little scenery jar. They are still in the same places they were before, they just look different. I made these jars to replace the bug jars in my mod More Colorful Critters, but decided to release the vanilla bug's jars separately. No more conspiracy of the letters on the corks.

The jars have been rebuilt in 3 DS Max and Nifskope and the esp rebuilt as well for the 32 bit engine. 
Any questions or problems, please contact me on Discord.
