HQ snow texture

The "look" of the environment of my Legendary version, already looking awesome! Currently, I'm subscribing GAMEPLAY or QUESTS mods, there are more important to me... But I think I fix it somehow, your snow looks now, in my game... Thxs.

For an imporved look I would recomend using the loose files from my SE version. They still work in normal skyrim. The reason is that hq snow texure is not updated for the latest changes in my nordic snow.

@lupus_hegemonia if you dont see the textures ingame then you probably have lose files in your /data/texure/ folder. An easy fix is to download my lose file from nexus and owerwrite everything.
lupus_hegemonia Dec 3, 2016 @ 1:30am 
No, nothing like that. Don't know, maybe is not... activated and didn't noticed!
Wahots Nov 30, 2016 @ 11:29am 
It IS a subtle mod, but it should improve the look a bit.
Wahots Nov 30, 2016 @ 11:29am 
@lupus_hegemonia: hmm, do you have your textures set to "high/ultra" in settings? Sounds silly, but...I do notice a difference. This makes the snow sparkle like real ice crystals on a sunny day.
lupus_hegemonia Nov 30, 2016 @ 7:04am 
I've downloaded (first) the official High-Res texture pack, while afterwards I ported this mod too.
To be honest, I don't see any much of difference, better snow or so...
lupus_hegemonia Nov 28, 2016 @ 2:24am 
Hello to all. Can you tell me, give me advice, which mod to use to improve ALL WEATHER textures/feel/look, not just the snow?

Regards to any answer.
Wahots Nov 13, 2016 @ 6:26pm 
@Forine yes, it will. Won't matter if you have a newer GPU, but if you have a laptop or older GPU, it will. You can use a program called "Fraps" as an FPS counter to see before/after framerates.

Does this affect performance at all?

When it comes out it will be named "Nordic Snow".
Erik1988  [author] Nov 1, 2016 @ 4:41am 
Yes, I will as soon as I get my hands on the creation kit.
Based Sarg Nov 1, 2016 @ 12:52am 
Think you could make a version for Xbox One?
Erik1988  [author] Oct 28, 2016 @ 7:25am 
There is a version for Special Edition available here (Nexus):

Make sure to check it out!
Wahots Sep 28, 2016 @ 7:15pm 
Oh, thank you!
Erik1988  [author] Sep 27, 2016 @ 11:32pm 
Im glad you liked it. I have done a retexture of riften and some of them are soil, but thats it.

I would recomend checking it out if you like the vanilla feel, but want better quality:
Wahots Sep 27, 2016 @ 2:52pm 
This is great! have you done any soil retextures?
locdog Jul 7, 2016 @ 2:29pm 
This snow is snowy. Brrr.
Erik1988  [author] Jun 16, 2016 @ 7:17am 
Yes you can!

ok i did getyour 1024 version and skyrim works just fine. and by the way everyone love the
Erik1988  [author] Dec 19, 2015 @ 3:19am 
@SHINING MOON the 1024 version is better in preformance compared to the 2048, if your computer crashees after intalling it I would think that you have to many other mods so that the ram is used up. This mod does not add much MB, so its very onlikely that this one alone causes your crash, beside its only textures.

If you are already strugeling with skyrim on the lowest settings, I would not recomend to install any mods that have higher textures than vanilla (512)
SHINING MOON Dec 18, 2015 @ 11:56pm 
no its not better for low-end computers it make them crash
"Merx" Oct 5, 2015 @ 2:16pm 
thnks :P
Erik1988  [author] Oct 5, 2015 @ 8:49am 
You can try the 1024 version. its better for low-end computers.
You can find it here:
"Merx" Oct 5, 2015 @ 5:15am 
It makes my game - very very slow - it lag! Where there is a lot of snow, it is impossible to play with? :S
Powerbutton2001 Jun 23, 2015 @ 5:15pm 
alright thanks!!!
Erik1988  [author] Jun 23, 2015 @ 5:05pm 
this texturepack have little impact on performance on most systems. However if you like a version of this that is better for low end systems, i would recomend to use the 1024 version at nexus.
Powerbutton2001 Jun 23, 2015 @ 4:36pm 
does anyone know if this lags your game at all
(s.i.e) May 27, 2015 @ 6:32am 
I've been using this mod for a good while now. I really appreciate the fine job you done here it makes a big difference in the game.

Many thanks!

PRIMALUS Apr 25, 2015 @ 11:50am 
Real ice is nice!
Pecetowiec Jan 6, 2015 @ 5:57am

r3dxfaction Jan 6, 2015 @ 2:16am

.: Sebadamus :. Dec 10, 2014 @ 5:59pm 
I have glitches with BDN, after disabling BDN... no more glitches. I also have SMIM... hope this helps some other gammer! thanks Erik great mod, I keep yours.
Heredom Nov 23, 2014 @ 4:11pm 
good job ! probably the best snow improvement for skyrim (i confirm : compatible with BDS)
Erik1988  [author] Oct 28, 2014 @ 11:47pm 
This works very well with Better Dynamic Snow, so you are probably using another mod that overwrites my textures. This is just textures, so it workes with everything. @Spazegamer thats just a steam error, try running it again a few times and it usually works.
Wampirzycaaaa Oct 27, 2014 @ 4:35pm 
It doesn't work with Better Dynamic Snow for me :/
Spazegamer Oct 13, 2014 @ 7:12am 
My launcher says it failed to get a file from this addon wtf????
kawaj Oct 2, 2014 @ 8:25am 
J'aime beucoup aussi.
N0rdic_DankSpanks Jul 16, 2014 @ 8:31am 
Nice no more white paint
L0N3_W0LF Jul 9, 2014 @ 11:13am 
looks great i like it a lot
daminwood Jun 11, 2014 @ 1:43am 
is it better than dynamic snow
Socrates_- May 29, 2014 @ 2:29am 
Thanks for the mod the snow looks beautiful.
n o h o m o b o i May 17, 2014 @ 12:54am 
what i like best about it is the falling snow *__*
JoraniusMinecraft May 8, 2014 @ 3:00pm 
Looked real enough on the pics and if better in game... I immediatly subbed, no doubts there, this is bloody awesome! Thanks for this mod :)
Aj Mar 10, 2014 @ 11:58am 
it looked real to me, good job
Erik1988  [author] Mar 10, 2014 @ 10:50am 
I named it High Quality (HQ) to emphasize that it's good quality not just High Definition/resolution (HD). To have textures that qualify as HD is really easy - you just need high resulotion. HQ is naturally more diffecult. I do belive mine are HQ, even tho this is ofc my subjective opinion. :)

I'm glad you liked it!
