Cleaned Skyrim SE Textures (by Kartoffels)

Recommended Posts

On that image, you're seeing CSSET reintroducing the faking shadowing that was present in LE. It looks horrible in SE's lighting.


This mod is providing a few thousand unconflicted textures...so we're trying to judge based off a small set. Personally, I don't see any benefit of including this, however, on the flip side 90% of the "issues" are already overwritten by other mods in STEP...it's an odd and tough call.

I have to agree that it is a tough call for many reasons. I was trying to get my head around which textures will be used from this mod (that aren't overridden by other mods), but unfortunately Mod Organizer doesn't reveal the conflicts in BSAs yet and I'm not quite prepared to extract all BSAs to get a handle on it.

I think you are referring to the bush/vine behind Ria at Pelagia Farm in the third set of screenshots? This one stands out to me because the CSSET version seems significantly darker for some reason. If not, I'm confused... ;-)

I'd like to see the lone tree and the one behind Ria close up compares to determine if the mips are messed up in CSSET.


Agree with Tech though. I've lost a bit of faith in this mod, since it seems like it may have been created hastily using broad strokes (batch-file processed, BSAs packed incorrectly, identical-to-vanilla textures included, vanilla replacement BSAs). I suspect that all of the hard work of examining and verifying each texture in game has not been done (and I don't blame the MA for not doing if that's the case ... let the community nitpick to find the issues).

I just don't think this mod is worth it for the Guide. Of the ~4269 unconflicted textures, 4064 are terrain LOD textures that users are never going to see up-close because we're generating the ones that matter ourselves. That only leaves 205 textures that are not covered. Of these, I've looked at a few. Most the gradients still have artifacts and/or banding and some have new artifacts introduced from the "batch handling" of the files. I just don't think it's worth the massive download for ~200 textures.

      Embers XD by mindflux
      Wiki Link
      Install Lite version with the Lite beta update file. I also used the "High Quality" option for Embers XD rather than "Optimized"
      Use EmbersHD.esp plugin from main file (chose for compatibility in chaning from Enbers HD ... not sure if prudent) Set Embers XD.esp plugin from Lite beta update file as optional plugin in MO (It looks like Embers XD.esp (v2.2.3) = EmbersHD.esp (v2.2.1)) Install all add-ons (need screens for magic effect) Do not install any patches Place after Embers HD in load order (disable Embers HD and Inferno to match the Embers XD screens) NOTE: Embers XD is ENB compatible but performs nicely without ENB.
      Campfires: Inferno + Embers HD (Step) > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      Sconces: Inferno + Embers HD (Step) > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      Torches: Ultimate HD Torch (Step) > Inferno + Embers HD > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      NOTE: Torch flames for Ultimate HD Torch and Inferno + Embers HD lick very fast. Embers XD flames lick more slowly and behave more realistically.
      Forge: Inferno + Embers HD (Step) > Embers XD (orange/red flames)

      NOTE: FPS gain with Embers XD ... need someone to confirm.

      No Grass in Objects by meh321
      Wiki Link
      Accepted for next SE guide version (> 1.0.0)
      Prevents grass clipping through most objects.
      Mod performs a raycast in-game from each position where grass is located and if it detects a collision with another object then it doesn't place grass at that point.
      Needs .Net framework but that's already a requirement for MO2.
      OCD sufferers rejoice!

      Skyrim Remastered - Glaciers and Ice by gravos8890

      I believe this mod could be a better alternative to Just Ice in the STEP Guide since it provides textures to glaciers/ice on both DLC's for a more consistent look overall and LOD files are also avaible.
      I haven't had the time to test it but I think the mod is worth a look.
      Screens comparing Step (Just Ice, Cathedral Landscapes, SRO, others):
