This mod of Bethesda’s last Elder Scrolls release by Modder UniqueUses is called “Toon Skyrim”, and we are itching to try it out. Unfortunately, it’s still a work in progress:
“I’m basically making my own potato texture mod, with an enb [a visual mod] and weather that goes with it to help hide that ugly lod [level of detail],” said UniqueUses on reddit. “I like the potato texture style, but I think a lot of fixing up needs to be done for it to be playable. So I’m going to attempt to make things like signs and faces readable but still fit the potato style. For example, certain puzzles need to be seen, so I’m going to edit those.”
Basically, he’s looking to use a mod that gives a new visual feel to the game but doesn’t add all the extra stuff that slows down your FPS. If you’ve ever had to lower your visual quality to keep your framerates from making it impossible to play a game, you know what a lifesaver this can be.
Plus, it looks gorgeous.
Check it out pictures and a demo of the mod in action after the break.
