Vivid Landscapes - Birthsigns by Aron

Recommended Posts

A retexture of Standing Stones, no explanation needed here, we all know VL series :)

 

Not sure if this will be included in the All In One VL pack, so creating separate thread.

 

Will need compares against Vanilla and current STEP (no mod in STEP mod to covers these currently, apart from a few moss dirt piles (SRO and Re-Defined Dungeons), but no actual stones). I will be able to make them early next week, Mon or Tue.

That guy is resourceful. I really like his work.

I am not sure why he didn't make it an update to Dungeons and ruins though. Of course there's no harm in releasing it separately, but...

The screenshots look awesome.

I'll volunteer to take these on today. I was going to do the farmhouses, but this looks like much less work. Will be up soon.

 

This was my plan for today + dragon claws and some other clutter, but the release at work didn't go so well and I'm still stuck in the office unfortunately :/

In the voice of a Mexican Soccer announcer: "SHADOW STRIPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

 

I forget how bad it can be in vanilla, but there is so much of it, and I think it has to do with the parallax textures. Anyways....

It can be hard to see the VL stones in vanilla lighting, they have a lot of shadow stripping and I really can't express enough in screenshots how bad it is. I'll try to play around with some stuff to improve it, but vanilla is vanilla.

You know, many times we are discounting parallax mods due to having to use vanilla only. Why is it that STEP hasn't recommended ENBoost + Shadows and Parallax Enabled only at least? It would alleviate said problems and doesn't come with a huge perf hit.
