Banners of our Fatherlands HD-UHD


(4 customer reviews)

UPDATE!


Well, some folks reported to me that there is a “shimmering” on the banners, while they waving on the wind. I double-checked before to release the mod and I didn’t found any issues. Anyways, since there was the report, I re-saved all the files with the new BC compression format. That means, the new files can be used ONLY in Special Edition (the new files also contains meshes too). So, anybody suffers from “shimmering”, get the new files.

But generally, update to the new files since I included the meshes too. Its not so big  deal to get the meshes too, I just added Alpha channel to several flags to have proper transparency.


Most of the users (if not all) are using the notorious “Designs of the Nords” mod. Its a great mod, probably the best so far about the banners, in 1K resolution. But, I always wanted to make my own flags/banners, with my flavor, my style – and much more better resolution (at least 2K and perhaps even 4K).

Before the “genius” Nexus team decide to ban me from their site, I had  published a W.I.P. (Work-in-Progress) mod, an ambition mod covering ALL Skyrim’s banners/flags! Back then, I had released 2-3 banners… but realizing how much work I had to do (and too painful), I dropped the mod for that moment…

Few weeks ago – and since we are “locked-up” because  the pandemic virus – I thought myself “C’mon, now you have plenty time, lets work the banners”. So I did it, I managed and finished all game’s banners, DLCs including too!
I made the banners much more simpler than “Designs of the Nords”, because they are FLAGS, not… tattoo or textile/rag designs. That was always my “problem” with that mod – it had TOO MUCH elements and they didn’t look like flags. All flags, even the old centuries’ ones, the were much more simpler (focusing on the faction’s logo/icon).
I also made them very “Medieval”, with long stripes and such.

Except ONE TEXTURE which I borrowed (and improved it) from the mod “Sigils of Skyrim” (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/34176), all the rest are my designs. I was so tired to make these small shops’ flags in Windhelm and since I liked that texture from that mod, I borrowed it…

Enjoy the “Banners of our Fatherlands” and let me know if you want other mods’ flags.

lupus,
another great re-texture design-wise, man
however, i’m getting what appears to be some “moire” shimmering if I can describe it like that. it doesn’t look like a fully opaque textile banner because of the shimmering. any thoughts? thx

Which one?
I’ll try to solve it.

it’s on all of them! Even with ENB on or off, same results. only way to get rid of that shimmer is by getting nose to nose with the banner, where it looks great of course. but any further distance it begins to shimmer as it moves. almost seems like the shadows between each of the strands of the textile are causing this…? looks like tiger stripes, “moire”, shimmering effect, it’s very noticeable

Are you sure is not your card or your connection (VGA to monitor)?
I had the same issue long ago and it was the cable (HDMI). I switched it to the DisplayPort cable the that “effect” gone.

Check that I wrote you.
And I’ll try to re-save them in BC7 format.

Member

I was also wondering if BC7 format would help with this issue; also mip-mapping as well? I tried switching cables as well as a different monitor (TV) and unfortunately they all exhibited the same artifact, whether it’s DP, HDMI, monitor or TV. It’s the only texture in my game that I have noticed this effect, out of nearly half a terrayte of “mods” in my MO2 folder! But they do look great up close! Please figure the solution out; many of your textures are now essential in my 4K ULTRA MODDED setup!

Get the new files. I don’t believe you’ll have the same glitch now.

Btw… since I made a major PC update (last year) just for the Skyrim SE to handle a build full of 4Ks only, you don’t need the 4Ks!!!
If we’re talking about the Witcher 3 game and you own a 4K monitor, I wouldn’t say a word but “go on, enjoy the 4Ks”. In Skyrim SE (which is simply THE VERY SAME old LE version simply ported to 64bit!!!), using 4Ks is totally useless – unless if you place your character’s… nose on the tree bark’s surface, and taking super gorgeous screenshots!!! There is no other point to using 4Ks, I figured it out after 2-3 years of spending valuable VGA recurses.
Currently, with my PERFECT VISUAL combo I managed to do, I’m using 4Ks only for… dragons, mammoths, giants, statues, spiders (generally, for very large objects. The rest all are in 2Ks. Even the special NPCs or followers, are in 2K. The head/feet/hands in 1K, the body only in 2K. The eyes/brows/warpaints etc are in 1K or even less. The trees in 2K, the branches atlas only in 4K (since there are a lot branches and the mesh takes small pieces from here and there).

hey lupus,
You did it man! The new meshes, textures, etc. have eliminated that “moire” shimmering effect. These banners are utterly superb: choice of textile, overall design, colours, etc. Conveys a richness and true artistry from both the Skyrim banner makers and the texture creator (you)! Keep up the great work!

Nice work on these, these are the best banners I’ve seen for Skyrim SE. I was initially using the same mod you linked in the description of this mod but this one far surpasses that one, the designs look better, and quite a few thoughtful design additions like adding the anchors to the ship banners was good as it separates it from other imperial banners, kind of gives it an Imperial Navy look as opposed to just another imperial banner with the same symbol on it, and the lines add a nice touch too. They looked very nice in-game.

Damnit now I have to remove all my texture mods from nexus that I spent hours installing and replace them with your ones. How dare they kick you out of nexus, all your mods are gems.

Thxs a lot for your kind words.

Man… its all about “political correct”. I never was “diplomatic” person, to crafting a “nice-to-all” persona and be loved by all. I always was a direct guy, speaking/writing hard and openly my opinion. That – in our modern times – NEVER been accepted. In Nexus, they (Nexus team) never liked me. I have so many mods published to their portal, at least the 1/3 of my mods were notorious and very famous and THEY (Nexus team) NEVER TOOK AN INTERVIEW from me, THEY NEVER PROMOTED ANY MOD OF MINE…
…when they always doing it, even in new mods from newbie modders that just came and joined Nexus community!!!

They accused me as “thief”, that I stolen 2-3 textures from other mods (and involved these stolen textures in my over 1000+ textures “Clutter Collection” mod of mine). I proved them that its a silly accusation because I’m a lore-friendly designer and my textures LOOKS SIMILAR with other mods’ textures, but like I said since I was NEVER “BELOVED” to Nexus team, they demanded to remove these 2-3 textures or ban me! So, I was pissed and I gave them the middle finger!

This mod is amazing, just what I was looking for. Even though “Designs of the Nords” is a high quality mod, I never liked what they did with the city sigils. Your mod has HQ banners and vanilla style sigils, which is perfect.

Have you ever considered retexturing the Stalhrim set? There are literally no good retextures of said set :/

Support

I don’t know.
Why are you saying there aren’t good textures for this armour/weapons? I’m using pretty good ones.

Member

Would you mind linking me?

Support

How so? Why are you asking this request?

Member

What? I was simply asking because I haven’t been able to find any good ones.

Support
19/05/2020

Yes, I understood; but why do you need linking for? I’m also simply asking, to understand.
Anyways, I don’t know how to do it, let me know.

Member

I was asking if you had a link to the good texture you were using.

Which specific you mean?

The Stalhrim ones you mentioned. Again sorry if I came off as a aggressive or otherwise.

These are amazing! Much better than Designs of the Nords, in my opinion.
I haven’t had issues with any of your mods so great work man.
Don’t know if you could fulfill a request but if you are up to it, could you please make a banner for the rest of the divines? Such as Dibella, Kynareth, Akatosh, Julianos, Stendarr, Zenithar, and Talos.

I don’t have these banner files. If you can share them, I’ll do them.
I made all the “vanilla” flags and every mods’ flags I’m using (for my personal use). These rest divines’ flags, I haven’t see them before.

What does MDCE mean?

Something like “Imperial Force Internal Rules” or so, I can’t remember.
I found a quote in Elder Scrolls’ Wiki and borrowed it.

I love the mod, but wouldn’t Winterhold banner have the crown as their symbol instead of making reference to the College, which is shunned by the Jarl himself?

Support

I just liked this version, without crowns. Crowns are the No1 icon they all use – and is boring.
