(WIP) Silvery Silver in Morrowind.

I have always hated the silver items' textures in Morrowind. The best of the bunch being the textures used for the Dukes Cuirass, and the Silver Cuirass.
So I have taken it upon myself to make it so that every thing in vanilla Morrowind that has Silver in the the name will be Shiny, and Silverish.
I will NOT be making any new Meshes, nor will I be making any new Textures, only Normal maps, and If necessary I will make gloss maps for them too. First off I will be working on the Silver Dishes, and the Silver Candle Sticks.
I created this thread because I wanted to let folks know that it is coming, and I wanted to give interested people a chance to volunteer for testing purposes.
That is to say that I am looking for a few folks to test my texture paths and let me know how they feel about the shininess, or the brightness of the meshes after they have had the reflection texture, and the normal map applied to them.
Screen shots will be coming as each part of the project nears completion.

Any one that wants to be a tester for each part of the project can sign up here in this thread.  (this way I do not accidentally throw away any PMs that are sent to me before sending out the test packets).

I was looking at the archive when I noticed that I had misplaced the Data Files folder inside the Textures folder when I packed it to send. I have rectified the mistake, and if any testers want the new archive instead of the one sent out, please let me know.

nah, I'm good.  I'll have time to fully enjoy this this evening, as our weekly NWN game has been canceled due to technical difficulties.

So I was playing some Morrowind, and I had to go to my temporary Home to take a Screen shot of the silver dishes. I will take more screens as I come across more dishes.

So um here is a screen shot:

More later when I find some more.

Drak, you should upload images directly to the board. That way they're made into thumbnails and will open up to full size when clicked on. The silver looks good, can't wait to get this in game.  :twothumbs:

thanks wolf. I really did not do anything besides making the reflection texture (which looks like the side of a black and white cow), and create the Normal maps, then apply them to the meshes.
They are still the vanilla meshes with the vanilla textures as a base to the shiny I just added..
But thanks any way Wolf.
And Elaura thanks for the screen shot. I am still looking for opinions from other testers to see what they think of the mod. Depending upon the findings they have I may be ready to release this one.

That' is all I took.  I was hopping to find more silver but all the loons in Mournhold like to lock up their silver.

Have/are you planning to do something with Silver Weapons?

Re: (WIP) Silvery Silver in Morrowind.

Wolf I have already started working on the silver weapons. I have the darts, arrows, bolts, and the silver staff to do yet, and then I have to fix the UV map Bethesda used on the blood moon silver weapons there is a texture seam in the middle of all of the silver blades in Blood moon, Also I will be introducing the Nordic Silver spears that Bethesda never implemented, but are included in the Bloodmoon BSA.
So there will be not really new weapon with that pack.
Last will be the silver Armors included in the game.

Um the status on the dishes is finished.
The weapons I have not gotten around to redoing (it was almost complete)
The statues on the armor is I have not started on that yet either.
Been distracted by other projects Jac.
I will get to it. No worries there. I just can not promise when it will be.
