Readme File:
VA's Better Gold v2.0

An update to my original Better Gold, this one gives the Septim a new mesh - I added a texture to the edging of the coin and gave the mesh environment mapping so its shiny this time. The mod does nothing else other than replace the gold coin and its icon.


Self installer should have extracted everything to your Oblivion\Data folder - the folder paths are correct. If you are a cretin, however, and manage to balls it up somehow, here are the folder paths spelled out for you:






Nothing to do... just look out for better, shinier gold coins which should show up better in dark places.


The guys and gals of NifTools for making mesh importing possible in the first place.


If you wish to use the mesh and/or textures in any Oblivion mod release of your own, please first contact me for specific permission... chris@vagabondangel.com
The meshes and textures in their current format remain the property of Bethesda Softworks and as such are covered by their EULA. They must not be converted for use in other games, nor be used for financial gain.

And enjoy!

excellent idea, look and mod in general. however, you should change the wording on the back of the coin (it kinda makes no sense) it should read "praise be TO akatosh". miniscule really, but i laways find something to complain about, even with a mod as perfect as this. 9/10 from me, with the hopes of a grammar change wink
cheers and keep up the fine work Beer! Beer!
