also using the high rez texture replacer on the blood and I agree on that, the blood looks legit in first and third person on the blades.

That straight-on axe shot is great. I love the nail or whatever it is stuck down into the top of the axe haft to keep the head on tighter! That's a really nice touch of realism. :-)

I know you're probably not too worried about item placement in Skyrim any more, but I came across this one and it was so...atmospheric...that I felt I would share it.

That was lying there in a shipwreck at the bottom of Lake Klinalth...talk about setting the atmosphere for "always having been part of the game"... 'Rock On!'

On the contrary I'm always interested in new information about how the mod plays in your games, so thanks for the photo! Hm...that makes me a bit uncomfortable, being in the ocean and not having rusted at all...maybe I'll increase the chances of old weapons, or make a new "worn" retexture to show a bit more wear and age. Thanks a lot for the shot though, very cool!

How I edited the leveled lists never makes it too clear to me "when" or "where" you'll see these things, the game calculates it all. Since I don't have enough time/experience to hand place anything yet. But I'm glad its working at least :).

hey guys, i loved this mod so damned much i decided to join up here at the forums and give y'all some feedback and offer my input and help :D....those imperials swords look absolutely fantastic dude, i love the slightly curved dagger, seems like the sorta thing the thieves guild would use :)...honestly superb work, and that armoured skeleton looks frickin badass :D:D not half as flimsy as the skynilla ones, i mean a strong gust of wind obliterates thems :P

oh and with the trying to create a unique feel with all the different weapons, you really have, the battleaxes feel so frickin brutal, i picked one up and the first few things i killed just got smashed :-D-) twas brutal 'Rock On!'

anyways keep up the great work guys :D

How does the marauder lord skeleton look when it falls apart? does the armor stay attached to each individual bone?

Can't spoil all the surprises. Take a look when you fight them in game ;)

As a side note, all the blades so far didnt have their normal maps activated... Modding for a new uncharted game causes all sorts of interesting issues :P. Here's an example:

This is how the Cawood Looks Now

This is the Cawood As Intended

If you notice the etching depth, along with the nicks and cuts showing more... I'm fixing it now, so it should look better when I update the mod soon.

hell normal maps make a mucho difference to things, mind you the games arbitary lighting isnt as bad as i thought it would be xD

normal map looks a bit strong in that image imo, dont wanna let the blades metal patterning shine through, best to make it solid colour, so its normal map makes it look flat, but retains the diff maps patterning so it doesnt look bland or too clean :)...but the notches and runes look brilliant with the new normal maps (Y)

great job man :D

Yeah the thing is, it was meant to be like this. I checked it in Oblivion and it actually looks just like this. But i'm thinking that I might make the worn version of weapons into the one without a normal map, and the new version the one with a normal map. They look drastically differently like this, and it'll fill in the gap between the weapons. Or maybe just make the non normal map one a different weapon altogether... Haven't decided yet.

If there's a person to thank though, definitely thank Waalx, his work is amazing, and its all his original creation. I really look up to the stuff he made, it's really incredible. The thing that amazes me most is how fast he got this stuff out for how much work he put in. I'm struggling just to get it in the game sometimes, and I dont even have to do as much :P.

As a side note here are some other pics from the upcoming Imperial module you guys might like.
