About this mod

High-res and performance textures optimized for SSE, plus a cleaned plugin, for The Scarlett

Permissions and credits
Ld50365 made some really amazing mods and then retired from modding many years ago. I love these mods and want to see them stick around, and thus would like to do my best to modernize them. I'm starting with The Scarlett and Blackthorn and will see how it goes with these before I start on the others.

The original textures were mostly fairly low resolution and in old BC1 or BC3 compression.
I have upscaled them using chaiNNer and ESRGAN models, and re-compressed in modern BC7 format with full mipmaps to a max of 4K resolution.

I have also uploaded a new plugin, but all I've done so far is copied over all the water flow records from update.esm, and ran it through quick auto clean. I know that there are other issues with this mod, and I am interested in fixing the ones I can. Consider this an invitation to tell me what needs fixing, and I will do what I can. I don't know navmesh or scripting, but should be able to tackle most other issues.

Currently, requires the original mod

Performance Option for Potato PCs
Mipmaps and BC7 compression reduce VRAM usage, especially when the files are cleaned of compression artifacts.
For Potato PCs, I've uploaded a downscaled version where the diffuse texture files are larger than normal and environment map files, which are less visible in game. This reduces VRAM usage considerably while maintaining higher visual quality, using the Octagon config files posted on this mod, which I recommend using if you have a Potato PC.
