I use this and have tested but didn't post the screens yet. I put my stamp of approval on it. Very nice makes the runes look like going for standard to high def.

EssArrBee, I don't cast the rune spells that much in games, often my only interaction involves stepping on them when going to get Nettlebane or clear Sarthal.

 

I discovered why I was triggering these magical traps all the time, my decal settings had been zeroed out in my ini files at some point (probably when I reset my files) and the runes were barely visible.

 

So, I got the runes back to where I could see them better in game and then later on when I found this mod, I couldn't resist.

This is another mod I like that I wanted to test and never did. This week's boredom had lead me to testing all weekend, so profit for everyone else.

I like these.. V2 has some very cool intricate patterns. Still, I think it could benefit from some shading or.. you know, something to make it blend better. As it is, it is not subtle at all and just seems like paint, imo. I'll try them in-game anyway.

Mixed feelings. For some, STEP wins, for some V1 and for others V2 :)

 

Like phr said, it could use better blending.

I find the STEP runes somewhat difficult to see, the V1 runes are nice improvement, the V2 show promise but seem a much currently. I'm going to give V1 a go.

These are prettier. Probably easier to see too. Which may or may not be an advantage, depending on how you like your game.

I always think of runes as magical traps.  Traps should be subtle and at least somewhat difficult to see.  While I like many of the new designs in V2, I can't imagine actually playing with them in game.  They stand out too much, and if the NPCs had an ounce of real intelligence they would simply see the rune and avoid it, which makes it rather immersion-breaking when they don't.

Yeah I agree. Now if someone came out with more detailed vanilla rune traps and maybe even some custom designed ones like this mod but made the runes a bit more transparent and/or have a pulsating glow that makes them fade in and out I'd quite possibly use it even if it had scripts.
