BSA Replacer.  Uses "Ordenador - Texture Optimizer" program to limit vanilla SSE textures to 1024 and under.

ONLY changes textures over 1024; does not change textures less than 1024 (these vanilla SSE textures are left untouched).
-- Reduces textures 2048+ --> 1024.
-- DOES NOT alter vanilla textures under 1024
-- DOES NOT add compression to textures ; this mod only reduces the texture size.
-- Image quality should be somewhere between original Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition

================================================================================================
WHY?
-- BSA is easier to manage than Loose Files; BSA also overwritten by Loose Files.  BSA makes it easier to use other texture mods.
Simple BSA replacer I made in a few hours.  I wanted reduced textures since my computer is older and not the best for SSE (gain a few more FPS); but most Texture replacers used "Loose" files.  I thought a BSA replacer would arise, but since I haven't seen one I decided to create a quick and easy reduced textures mod that I use myself.
-- See image that shows differences in BSA file size.
-- Why not add compression? 
------> I tried this at first, but my textures came out "shiny"; so I decided to just reduce the texture size and not add further compression.  (if you know why this happened and how to fix I'm interested in knowing).
-- Not much reduction for Textures 6,7,8  (so not included)

================================================================================================
Mod provided AS IS ; I don't plan on making any updates (unless I do so for personal gain :D , which I will upload here).  I do think someone WILL make a better BSA replacer in the near future (Hopefully).  When that time comes, please use that mod instead.
-- If you experience any crashes; please uninstall and use something else.
================================================================================================
Add images if you want ; please post feedback for others users.
================================================================================================
Be sure to check out the other Textures replacers on Nexus.  Many of them add compression for even more optimization.
================================================================================================
Installation
-- Backup the vanilla texture BSAs (Skyrim - Textures0 --> Skyrim - Textures8).
-- Add my BSAs to Data folder, let them overwrite (since you have a vanilla backup copy).
Uninstall
-- Remove my BSAs; copy over your backup Texture-BSAs into Data folder.
================================================================================================
Other:
-- BSAs still contains a few files with sizes over 1024.  The way the Optimizer program works, when resizing it only reduces the file in half per run.  Thus I could run it again and get 100% compliance, but I figured there was a reason some of these textures were larger than most.
-- See README for list of these Large Textures.
================================================================================================
Permissions:
-- Do whatever you want.  This just takes vanilla SSE textures and modifies them to 1024 or below.
