[REL] Spring Flowers for Skyrim (mod resource)

Spring Flowers for Skyrim is now released on Skyrim Nexus :)                      (more pictures)
This contains 41 flowers of different types and colors, all function as grasses. The mod contains textures, nif files and a springflowerv1.esp. The flowers function as the grass does in Skyrim, it can only be placed in world associated with a land texture and will be animated like the grass would.

Update: 2012-10-13
As an optional file you can now also download the flowers as static objects, these can be placed in the cells like normal plants. No need to associate with a landscape texture like the grass variant.
The grass variant had a problem, not all of the texture showed when they where used as static objects. This is a problem in the original vanilla grass mesh I used. Ztree have fixed these for the MERP team and shared them with me, thank you!

Most of the flowers have 1024 resolution textures, and I will in a later update try to change this to 2048 to make it look better. I will also continue to make more flowers, and add re-textured grass, bushed ans trees as well. Then there is a need to make summer flowers, and water plants and so on :)

How to use this resource

A. With the Creation kit - add nifs manually
You can put the flowers in to your mod your self using the Creation kit.

1. Open the CK, load your mod as active and Skyrim.esm. The grasses are found in the Object window under WorldObjects/Grass/Landscape/Grass.

2. Double click on the original grass (snowgrass01 or tundragrassobj03), this will open the grass window. In ID write the name of the flower and click the Art file Edit, choose the flowers nif file. Click OK, now the CK will ask you if you want to create a new object, press Yes.
For most of the flowers use the snowgrass01 original grass, the exceptions are Alpine snowbell, Coltfoot, Lily of the valley, Pasque flowers and the white Winter Aconite, these use the tundragrass03 original grass.

B. With the Creation kit - duplicate from esp
You can make duplicates in the Creation kit.

1. Open the CK, load your mod as active, springflowersv1.esp and Skyrim.esm. The grasses are found in the Object window under WorldObjects/Grass/Landscape/Grass.

2. Right click on a flower you want to use, choose duplicate. You can choose to rename the copy after.

3. Use the duplicated version in your mod work.

    I've tried to keep the amount of flowers down to a reasonable amount, may do a summer version with crazy amounts of flowers sometime :)
