Permissions and credits

WHOOOO! We made it to top trending mods! Thank you all for your support <3

My Ruined book retexture refreshed and updated for SSE Enjoy :)

If you enjoy my work please endorse to let others know

Resolved detail HIiiiiii!
Clear, crispy, clean and inCredibly richly detailed retexturing work of the ruined books. Commonly found in dungeons and crypts
Bethesda created two different meshes, one has the full binding and the other has parts missing. (see images) The texture is used for both.
The paper seen in the images is a seperate retexture I have made which can be downloaded under "Optional"

The versions available are as follows:

-2018 4k diffuse with 2k normal 
-2018 2k diffuse with 2k normal 
-Oldrim 4k with 2k normal.
-Optional 4k Book paper 2k normal.
-Optional 2k Book paper 2k normal.

Not actually sure why this is a section...... Download and install through MO or NMM or place in Data folder.

Why I mod:
Back in 2012 I threw myself into the immersive mystical world that is Skyrim. yet as I played one thing began to irk me. The textures!
To put it plainly they suck. I tried to ignore it but over time it got to me so much that I literally forced myself to learn the art of creating textures just so I could fully immersive myself in glorious and copious amounts of detail.
Eventually I realised maybe other people would enjoy my creations. And so here I am sharing my many hours of trials and errors with this amazing community and if even one other person can enjoy them as I have I count that as a success!

Thank you to this amazing community of mod creators and users I am humbled to be counted as one of you.
Why I'm on Patreon:
As some of you may know or have guessed, modding take many hours, many more cups of tea and yet more cups of coffee. I do it because I love it and because I get excited to I share my creations with others who love it too.
That being said, if you shout me a coffee or a tea this will help me to cover my expenses like purchasing texture resources, my electricity bill and my sanity.

(Disclaimer: I will of course continue to create mods whether I receive support through patreon or not.)

Why are the colours so bright and saturated?
It's my personal enb settings. Depending on your setup the colour intensity will vary.
However when creating my retextures I aimed for a balanced level of saturation/brightness.

Can you add a version with this coloured feathers/wood/leather?
If there is enough interest

I hate your retextures!
Congratulations.You have an opinion. Feel free to not download my mod and move on 

There's no need to have 4k textures
What's the point of posting that?
