Bloody Silverware Glow-in-the-Dark Blood Decal

Recommended Posts

While trying out Rustic Clutter Collection I discovered a minor issue with the Ruins Clutter Improved bloody silverware blood decal.

The bloody silverware (2 goblets and 1 jug) has a strange glow in the dark look to them, as can be seen here. With vanilla Skyrim + Ruins Clutter Improved only: here. They look mostly fine when illuminated. In case the images don't do it justice, basically in very dark lightning you see clear red rings that don't make sense.

 

Ruins Clutter Improved adds new meshes with a new blood decal to go with it and when I disable these meshes to properly try out Rustic Clutter Collection, which doesn't add new meshes and don't 100% fit the ruins clutter improved meshes, I discovered that Enhanced Blood Textures completely messes things up as can be seen here.

 

So removing the new meshes, with or without new textures, makes things worse imo and therefore isn't a viable resolution to the glow-in-the-dark look. I tried modifying the new meshes in NifSkope but that yielded only very modest improvements.

 

Does anyone know or have suggestions for how I can tweak the meshes or blood decal to reduce or eliminate the glow-in-the-dark blood?

Alternatively, a fix for the enhanced blood textures+vanilla meshes blood would also be appreciated because I can then use Rustic Clutter instead.

 

I should add that this is an accurate depiction of my nifskoping skills  :psyduck:

I can help with a personal fix, but a fix for everyone is going to take those mod authors making their stuff compatible. Do you have the meshes and textures for the mods? If so, just archive them and post a link. I will look at them if I have some time.

Awesome, I DMd you the link with what you requested along with some notes  ::D:

I've been able to partly fix vanilla with EBT by changing the blending on the alpha. However, the way the UV is mapped, you can see the blood "splatter" across the jug opening. RCI fixed on their meshes by this using black vertex colors across the hole. The same can be done for the goblets.

 

For the oversaturated RCI meshes, you can change the Base Color to some close to a blood color. That should fix the colors being too bright. Right now they're white, so that is likely what is making it stand out so much.

 

Either fix can be done. Fixing RCI would be faster and easier, but EBT looks better (texture wise). RCI should probably be reported to that author.

That did the trick! I changed the Emissive Color in NifSkope from pure white to a dark red, maroon kind of colour (#4c0000ff) and it looks much better already  :clap:

      Hello,
      Not too long ago I modded my game after following the current STEP guide for SSE. After that, over time I added a few more mods not included in the guide and one of the ENB presets suggested in the guide for Cathedral Weathers, namely A Cathedralist's ENB. I downloaded and installed the high-quality main file from here: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/25296?tab=files . I have been playing the game during weeks without game-breaking issues and the ENB has been working fine.
      Very recently, however, I have noticed that the brightness output level in-game has suddenly shrunk. I have started to see things darker while I am playing. I play in exclusive fullscreen mode. However, any changes in the in-game brightness slider do nothing while I am playing. But if I quit to the main menu, there the previously adjusted brightness level is apparent. In other words, any changes made to the in-game brightness only reflect themselves while in the main menu, not while I am playing. Is that normal? Does it happen because I have installed ENB 0.462 and the aforementioned preset? Of course, I can always adjust the brightness levels in the in-game ENB menus. But it puzzles me that any changes made to the vanilla brightness slider only are apparent once I quit to the main menu of the game.
      Thank you for reading me.

      Hello,
      I'm following the STEP guide for SSE.  I've gotten to the H segment of the Models & Textures section.  A couple of these have not had an ESP file.
      Do I need to have it ticked in the left window of MO2?  I'm up to 85 mods enabled now, just following the guide, and I'm concerned that I'll reach the 255 limit before I'm done.
      I've used the search function in the forums, but there are hundreds of results for "no esp".
      Thanks in advance.
