About this mod

Overhauls the textures of the ebony weapons to fit more with the current graphical standard.

"Ah, now that's a fine sword. Like a little sliver of midnight."

So many efforts have been made to retexture the iron, steel, dwarven, orcish, elven, glass and daedric weapons. Especially noteworthy are the textures made by Cabal130. However, there have been no real retextures for the ebony weapons that do not simply upscale the texture files. This mod aims to make the ebony weapons truly feel like a reward.

All vanilla ebony weapon textures have been replaced. Mods that use those textures as well will thus also be affected. I have not edited the blade of sacrifice and the ebony blade. I have made a completely new cubemap from scratch to bring the most out of this black metallic glass.

All-new floral designs akin to the amidianborn ebony armor have been added. The weapons are definitely less ornamental than their vanilla variants: they are meant for slashing and skull-crushing, after all.

The textures are 2048x2048 diffuse and normal, and 1024x1024 environment map masks. I deemed this fitting enough for these objects as they are close to the viewer and the textures are not repeated as often as landscape textures.

Mods that replace the ebony weapons textures are not compatible. Mods like crazylion's ebony weapon replacer are obviously not compatible either. This mod is compatible and tested with better shaped weapons and heavy armory.
