Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Glowing Ore Veins 300 Mod v2.00

This mod serves to make the game's ore veins much more visible, especially in darker environments. It accploshes this by adding glow maps to each of the individual ore vein textures. This gives them a subtle glow that appears brighter as the ambient lighting become darker.

Without the mod, ore veins are very difficult to see and really don't stand out much against the rocks around them. More information on how to install this mod below.

Mod Description

----------------------------------------------------------------

This mod serves to make the game's ore veins much more visible,

especially in darker environments. It accomplishes this by

replacing the cubemap textures used by ore veins. This gives

them a glow that appears brighter as the ambient lighting

becomes darker.

Without the mod, ore veins are very difficult to see and really

don't stand out much against the rocks around them.

The new version changes the meshes to use new cubemaps instead of

modifying the game's original cubemaps. So the ore veins are the

only things affected by this mod.
