Ported from the original Oldrim mod here: This update not only is an official port to Skyrim Special Edition but comes out of the box using Gamwich's Rustic Soul Gem textures as a basis. Additional color enhancements were done, such as flecks of green in the yellow Common Soul Gem.

Multilayer Parallaxing (or MLP for short, yes I know what else that stands for, it stopped being funny in this mod's dev period) is not Parallax Bump Mapping, but a different parallax effect.  To understand what it's doing, you should familiarize yourself with just what parallaxing is (

Multilayer Parallaxing adds a subsurface texture that appears to be "inside" the geometry, parallaxing back and forth as your viewpoint upon the geometry surface pans about.  Other effects like refracting and scaling are also options within the mesh's material settings.  If you play Dragon Age Inquisition, the frozen lakes and rivers and more prominently the Red Lyrium use a more advanced version of this material shader effect. If you played Assassin's Creed Odyssey, several ancient Isu panels (like the Ancient Steles) have this effect too.

It does NOT require ENBSeries to function correctly.  Parallax bump mapping is what is broken, not this.  Several meshes in-game already use this material shader effect, like the Frost Atronach and several frozen water masses like glacial ice or frozen marshes in Hjallmarch.

Unpack manually or using the mod manager of your choice into the Skyrim/Data directory.  Activate the accompanying module to enable an extra effect on the filled gems.


Gamwich, for the Rustic Soul Gems used as basis textures, adapted for MLP functionality. Textures used with permission.


Obviously, any other mod that alters soul gems in any way (especially appearance) will likely clash with this mod.
