About this mod

Cleaned textures of Aetherium Armor and Weapons Compilation with optional files for better quality. Properly cleaned textures lets Skyrim use less memory loading it so means more FPS for you!

One of many mod textures I cleaned.

Comes with normal cleaned, 2x, and 4x though its recommend to use 2x or normal instead of 4x

Permissions and credits
For over 6 months I have been cleaning textures of mods I use because of Kartoffel's information stating that cleaned and properly compressed Skyrim textures uses less memory loading it in, so it means more FPS in Skyrim which I need because this gaming pc is old and need new parts sometime.

Did over 20 mods and growing though most of them are personal use so had the greatest thought of asking the mod authors who created the mods if I can upload the cleaned textures from their mods here for those who want more detail and more FPS. Ironically got permission from quite a bit of modders so expect lot of Cleaned textures from me!

My way is slightly different from Kartoffel's cleaning and upscaling way. They use models/files to make the textures higher in quality which changes the original texture slightly. What I do is clean and upscale the texture with the normal upscale model so it retains the original texture but is slightly smoother yet tad bit higher quality.

Love Kartoffel's work but me using tons of different models and choosing from thousands of different textures to use it on is a bit too much for me.

Because I do it this way I can do the texturing process faster.

You need this mod to use it with

Ironically this was actually from the Skyrim mod and not SSE because Special Edition did not have the mesh update for a long time until recently.

The mod's effects are also upscaled in the 2x and 4x versions so if something is acting weird with the effects let me know so I can either fix them or replace them with the regular cleaned effects.

Cube maps are not upscaled since Kartoffel informed me that it acts weird if you do.

Textures are Upscaled for more quality.

2x usually means that its upscaled twice the size which is true but this optional file has the size maxed at 2k though smaller files did get a bit bigger.

4x is the same thing but the 2k textures are now 4k and the smaller textures are much larger.

4x not recommended because it has very large textures and meant for screen shots!

2k is more of a quality and performance texture while cleaned because most of the textures are bigger than normal but do not go over 2048 size.

Might be hard to tell improvement so next time gonna take pictures of textures side by side during upscaling process.
