About this mod

Lore-friendly true 8K Photoscanned textures for Skyrim's Mountains. 4K and a massive 16K as well

Permissions and credits
8K Nordic Mountains

So once again I was playing around with the mountain textures. I literally love these - I don't know why, I think it's just because I think they fit so, so well. I have never been really happy with any of the mountain textures I have uploaded and I continuously have been tweaking the mountains for years without getting it just right. I think I finally got it just right for my own play-through. They have detail without it being too distracting, and also it's pretty close to the vanilla texture's color and brightness. I also added a darker version for those that want it!

This mod is compatible with Majestic Mountains
If you would like to use all the great things Majestic Mountains adds to Skyrim, but you want to use these textures you can! Either have Nordic take priority or just manually drag and drop the files into MM. T4gtr34um3r was kind enough to allow me to tweak this mod to work with MM but after taking a look at the files I realized it already works haha. Either way thanks anyways to T4gtr34um3r!

 I wanted to add if you are using Obsidian Weather or Obsidian Mountain Fogs and you want the fogs on the mountains to show up farther away set fSkyCellRefFadeDistance=280000  in skyrimprefsini that is the maximum setting for the fog distance. So you will have fog show up far far away on the mountains and it just looks way better imo. I don't know if it is as effective with the vanilla fogs but you can use it for that too.
