RUSTIC DRAGONS - Special Edition (by Gamwich)

Recommended Posts

Compare of formID: 000FEA9B Alduin: Bellyache's (current STEP) > Rustic Dragons (RD)

Both are nice, RD is more muted in color, which I think is more compatible with the game. I couldn't see any difference at all between the 8k/4k versions in-game at this distance. I'm sure there would be a noticeable improvement very close up though.

 

Another consideration is that Bellyache's includes customized meshes and several other texture assets, whereas RD does not. RD is also not complete yet, so there may be more coming. In the end, it may be the better option, but for now I'd say to wait until it's complete or use it as an extension to (override) Bellyache's where they conflict.

I like the Rustic so i am keeping both mods and leting RD overwrite.

I agree with with both, although this is Paarthurnax or another dragon, not Alduin. Alduin is black.  ::P:

 

Rustic is more muted, as Z mentioned, and looks like it fits the environment/lighting better. My eyes can see the extra texture clearity from the RS compare, even on smaller highslide thumbnails. Bellyaches looks a bit more blurred, though this could just be the movement and timing of capture.

Corrected ... Yeah, believe it or not, I've never made it through the whole campaign even after hundreds of play hours over the years ... always get caught up in modding and improvements, and I resist completing the main quests in RPGs to extend the play time. When I finish the main quest, all else loses its luster.

I prefer the more muted tones of Rustic myself. I never really noticed how much bellyaches stick out until I switched.

Not that I don't tend to avoid dragon fights at this point :unsure:

      Starting a list for all the mods in the current STEP guide, which are in need to be updated (or already are) to work with the current game version 1.6.640. I'm listing only relevant mods in each category (please correct me if i missed anything).

      Hi,
      I'm using DynDOLOD Alpha99...
      In the past I was able to get my distance grass colors more balanced, looking similar, now the farthest distance out is a greener color, then the rest of the grass.
      Here's a screen shot of the grass I am referring to with red boxes around it, that appears greener than the rest...
      Green Grass — Freeimage.host
      I'm using Complex Grass... 
      To balance the colors, is this just playing around the TexGen Direct/Ambient?
      In DynDOLOD I've tried default settings and these settings for the complex grass.
      ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ; make bottom darker to fake shadowing ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 ComplexGrassBrightnessTopR=0.500 THANKS
