By the same author who put out a nice-looking retexture of Dawnguard armors.  She had previously made this retexture of Skaal clothes for Dragonborn.  I thought the screenshots on the mod's Nexus page looked good, so I'm tagging this one for testing to be considered for testing and to get some compares.  I quickly installed the mod to look for conflicts and saw none with any STEP mod so the guide doesn't currently cover this.

This is a really excellent retexture, really love the look of the leather and fur here.  I absolutely cannot stand the belts though.  If you watch the video, 1:56 he does a screenwipe of old textures to new... everything else looks great but those belts (specifically the white stitching) just stand out like a sore thumb.  The vanilla texture, the belts looked busted up and worn - as you would imagine some hearty Solstheim wilderness folk's stuff would look.  In this retexture the belts look like they were just purchased at Sears.

Not sure I agree with you about the belts, Baron. Yes, the stitching could be slightly less white, but it's not the eyesore you make it out to be. Especially as compared to the original textures, there is no real comparison. I think the leather may be a little busy as a texture... just too many 'crinkles' in too small a space, almost like an over repeating texture... but even that is so far beyond the original that this seems a no-brainer to me.

Decidedly better than vanilla, and I'm not at all saying they should be passed up because of that detail.  Just that it sticks out to me.

I one issue with this mod is that the vanilla textures are notability worn, whereas with this mod the textures look like they're hot off the press. There is a place for these types of mods that make the cloths look brand new and never worn (screen archery and such), but I don't feel they are for STEP.

The lack of wear is particularly noticeable with all the belts and straps, but it is also present to a lesser extent on the rest of the armor.

      i have been having trouble with my skyrim mod list and the person helping me told me I should post my lootdebug log here.  I am not computer literate so I'm not very certain what this is for but was told to wait for an answer.  So thanks

      A cute little mod that translates the word walls, so you can actually read the lore written there. I have been using it for years and I find it very immersive. Just thought I'd put it out there.

      Removes the quiver when summoning and using Bound Bow.
       
      Honestly, this just makes sense to me. It's a magic spell so what's with the quiver and arrows? It makes more sense the arrows would be summoned as needed with magic, just like the bow was.
