Very good looking. I like the Nord tapestries in brownish colours a lot.

Other than thinking our mod has a little too much brown in terms of misc items and furniture already, these look like useful additions.

If you want, I can quickly review all the tapestries in Sky_Data and come up with a list of ones needing to be replaced/modified.

I will modify almost all of them, if only to give them a rougher surface. If there is any particular motif you want to get rid of, just let me know.

the other nord tapestries will retain some more color. But I have read people on the officials contrarily complaining about tapestry/rugs that were unfittingly vibrant aswell. I always try to keep both aspects in mind.

My thoughts on what to do with our tapestries


Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_01 - I like the swirling plant design - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_02 - Kind of bland and overly regal - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_03 - The tan color is nice - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_04 - I don't like this one at all. It reminds me of my mom's wallpaper - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_05 - A tad gawdy but I like the colors - Keep as is?

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_06 - Nice simple design - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_07 - Fitting for a mage interior - modify to be less ornate?

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_08 - Not sure about this one

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_09 - Nice design/color - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_10 - Nice design/color - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_11 - Yucky design/gawdy color mixing - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_12 - Decent enough - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_13 - Not a big fan - Replace with something using the same general colors

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_14 - A little too bright - Fade the texture/colors a bit and possibly remove the flowers

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_15 - Too bright and uses an ugly pinkish red color- Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_16 - Ugly mix of colors and too bright - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_17 - Design a little too ornate - Simplify the design but keep the colors and general pattern

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_18 - Rexture of 17 - Simplify the design but keep the colors and general pattern

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_19 - Too flowery - Modify to remove flower designs but keep general pattern/colors beneath.

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_01 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_02 - Colors a little bland

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_03 - Change the colors

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_04 - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_05 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_06 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_07 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_08 - Fitting for a mage interior - modify to be less ornate?

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_09 - Unsure

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_10 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_11 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_12 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_14 - Kind of bland - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_15 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_16 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_17 - Not a great design - Replace

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_18 - Modify to make less ornate?

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_19 - Modify to make less ornate?

Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_Large_20 - Keep as is


The ruined tapestries are all based on ones listed above and should be altered if their base designs are changed.


Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_01 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_02 - Maybe mute the colors a tad

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_08 - Mixes together too many colors

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_09 - Too much muted yellow

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_10 - Change the shade of red to be less pink

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_11 - Change color to something not red

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_12 - Keep as is

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_13 - Keep as is?

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_14 - Replace

Sky_Furn_Nord_Tapestry_15 - Remove middle design and it will fit

I should mention that I'm going to change each single rug to an extent that I will probably only keep the base color in most cases.

Other than that I have finished all of the small com-tapestries this morning, partly based on your input.

Well done for your hard work.

After a playtest with what i have so far, I would like to get rid of Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_17 and 18. They simply look wrong.

I will also change Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_05 and 08 into something different. The canvas structure looks flat and unnatural on them, no matter what i do. And they don't look right aswell.

Among the horizontal tapestries, I want to change sky_furn_com_tpl_05. To me that one destroys the already feeble skyrim atmosphere.

But all of the other ones are fine with me. I will probably change some of the other nord tapestries again though (the muted ones at the very right)

Edit: I'm also going to scrap Sky_Furn_Com_Tapestry_04 again to look for a more fitting pattern.

Sounds good to me. Excellent work on this so far.

So this is what the small com-tapestries look like now. I have adapted a couple of tapestry motifs from TR for this. In case there is a permission issue involved, let me know:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/223 ... y_new2.jpg
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/223 ... com_18.jpg

The big tapestries are 75% done aswell. Nord tapestries will follow later.

These are the first 6 rugs. I have taken orientation on the rugs mwgek made for P:C lately. these are explicitly supposed to be usable across skyrim in less imperialized homes aswell:

Nice. I love the rug you used in the room.

I like the texture feel of the tapestries really much, even the vibrant ones have a good feel to it.

Stunning work, Worsas. These look terrific. Will the rugs be of a higher solution? So that you can size them up more than 1.4-1.5, like those we have now, without the textures looking too stretched.

A couple of them have gotten a higher resolution so that you should be able to scale them up a bit more. But actually they all look more highres now since a lot of missing surface structure was added.

Hey Worsas, could you post a file of your work on these so far? Lestat will be updating Sky_Data soon.

I have posted the current files in my download section along with the fixed silver palms.

I'm actually quite far along with all of this. All com-tapestries, big and small, are finished. 16/25 rugs and 9/15 nord tapestries are done aswell.

I hope these look halfway decent now. The last two tapestries are by NZdawghaus. We have gotten permission from him to use them in Skyrim:

If noone has any objections about these, I can call our nord tapestries finished and move onto finishing the last remaining rugs.
