Description
"Texture Fiddling" Version 1.0
~ A Warband Mod by lucky lancer ~
2010-12-21

This is Open Source - use as you please. - Credit would be appreciated nevertheless.

DESCRIPTION:
As much as I always liked M&B, I always thought most of the vanilla M&B textures were too colorful, all too cheerful - in a land torn by war. Some others were just too plain, lacking quality, definition, sharpness.
Of course Warband brought a lot of textures a big step forward. But not enough for my taste - or at least not entirely into the right direction.
That's why I started to review, play around with and finally remix the color, saturation, brightness and contrast of numerous vanilla textures, one by one, to achieve a sharper, dirtier, darker, overall more "used" look - which in my eyes appears just a lot more REALISTIC and natural.
In other words: I tried to get the best out of the vanilla textures.
Of course this is a matter of personal taste and perspective.
If you share mine, then this might be the mod for you!

I altered almost every single armor, clothing, boots, gloves, hat, helmet, shield, body and weapon texture, along with some horse/horse armor and map icons, plains and steppe map textures.
I left out the Sarranid Mamluke Mail, because I never liked it and even removed it from my personal Native.

This is the first time I edited textures - so this modification is far from perfect. Some things might well be over-accentuated. But I believe it is well enough to share.


NO IMPACT ON GAME PERFORMANCE !
Since these are no new textures, but just reworked/remixed vanilla ones, there is NO impact on the game's performance! In fact, they are just the same size as before - or even smaller. Sometimes drastically smaller. That's because of saving procedures of the reworked .dds-files.


INSTALLATION:
Couldn't be easier!
Just put the texture files into your desired module's "Textures" folder.
Done and enjoy!


RECOMMENDATIONS:
This mod looks especially well with "Polished Landscapes" by Gutekfiutek!
