About this mod

This mod enhances the optical appearance of silver swords

Permissions and credits
Lore-friendly Silver Swords - Version 1.0 (2016-06-04)
LfSS is back, now including all silver swords of the game!

The books of Andrzej Sapkowski describe silver swords as very special and unique weapons. This mod aims to account for this by enhancing the optical appearance of silver swords, clearly destinguishing them from steel swords.

This mod alters the optics of silver swords to resemble the optical features of real silver like a chrome shine and partially golden reflections.
More specificly, it
  • Increases base specularity
  • Enhances light reflections
  • Slightly changes specularity color with variations between the different swords

Silver swords included:
  • Main Game (vanilla)
  • Wolf School Gear DLC
  • Hearts of Stone Expansion
  • Blood and Wine Expansion

The mod does not change the optical effects of runes.

If you update from a previous version of this mod, please delete the folders "modSilverShines" and/or "modFeelTheSteel" from your mod directory!
Unpack the downloaded archive and copy the package into the mod directory of your game: <...>/The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt/mods
If this folder does not exist, simply create it.

  • Compatible with any number of expansions/DLC. The mod only applies to the files actually installed.
  • Compatible with all other mods which do not change the model of any silver sword.
  • Compatible with any mod adding new silver sword models to the game. However, it will not apply to these swords.

Known Issues:
  • Many silver swords also received silver handles.
