About this mod

Realistic pine branches replacer. All types covered. 8K/16K versions. Billboards included.

Permissions and credits
Introduction
Vanilla pine branches just unnatural. So here is my take on them. I made these textures from photos of real spruce branches (Skyrim ''pines'' is definitely spruces for me). I believe that they are more realistic and quality. Screenshots displays 8K version and made with Silent Horizons ENB alongside vanilla lighting.

Take a look on best compatible pine shrubs.

Compatibility

Compatible with any other mod that uses vanilla pine branches.

Billboards

My textures works more or less acceptable with vanilla-like billboards. But for those who would make custom LOD, I decided to provide billboards. I didn't include .txt files so you still need them. This means that you should download Indistinguishable Billboards or SBT billboards (you probably have one of them already and combine my .dds' with their .txts. My billboards will only work with vanilla tree meshes. If you use different tree meshes you should make your own billboards (it's very easy) or create 3D tree LOD. I just can't provide billboards for every tree mod.

Q&A

  • Q: What did you do with (insert type) pines??? Awful!!!
     A: If you aren't satisfied and want just an upscale of vanilla textures take a look on this or this.

  • Q: Is everything ok with your head? Where is 4K version?
     A: It was a hard decision for me not to produce 4K version. But downscaling led to color artefacts and massive loss of quality. Many people would have download 4K version without any thoughts and get wrong impressions. So there probably won't be 4K version. Excuse me.
     
  • Q: Oldrim compatibility?
     A: No. BC7 is used. If you are desperate to convert this for LE, we will surely find agreement.
