Real Mountains

This is a hi-res retexture of the mountains in Skyrim. The files are 2048x2048 in resolution, which is twice that of the old mountain textures. There should be no performance hit with this mod, also keep in mind that these textures may look odd with the dynamic snow in the game. Please leave a comment and rating if you like the mod.

Also on the nexus with a lower res version. -

I am being a really big nit-picky nerd on this, more contrast and more lines does not equal more real looking rocks (they look more like a crinkled paperbag)... Rocks have jointing and weakness due to the materials they are made of, so like a limestone would have joints that are often 45 and 90 degrees, or have wavey-ness near fossils, can get a slow rounding from weathering, spotting, and staining. Sandstones often have banding, which can often switch directions, Granites, are made of a mixture of minerals some weaker than others such as the micas weather out faster than the quartz and so you end up with round bulbs. And lets not go into bedding orientations often changed due to upthrust.... I know I am being super silly about this, some like their water to look real I just want some rocks designed that look like real rocks.

Great mod I use this one all the time now the odsidian rock mod is one of the most attractive but the contrast with snow looks gritty..I use real mountains & dynamic snow the screen shots dont do this mod justice.Great work Osmodis.

I don't have the reference material to make 4k/8k versions. You could get the UV Mesh fix mod for the mountains and rocks, makes the texture less stretched out therefore increasing the sharpness.

The free official high def dlc does not include mountain textures. I just released a much better mountain texture mod yesterday, you can see it on my profile. It is called 4k Dark Gritty Mountains.
