High-Polygon Dragons Mod for Skyrim-2

This mod adds to Skyrim high-polygon dragons with 16K textures

Modder ‘Lucaoys’ has released a pretty cool mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. This mod adds to the game high-polygon dragons with 16K textures, allowing you to behold those creatures in their full glory.

Going into more details, the modder has increased the polycount of the dragons from 15.300 to almost 70.000. Moreover, he increased their textures by four times.

Do note though that the mod brings a cosmetic and stylistic change. Now, the dragons are less spiky and don’t look as cartoonish. Their heads will look more like real dinosaurs. The dragons have more teeth, bigger wings, and longer tails, making them look more elegant. They also have larger horns, thicker bodies, and more padding on their feet. Overall, the dragons look more like dinosaurs and appear more cinematic, rather than like lizards or iguanas.

To showcase the differences between the vanilla and the modded models, Lucaoys shared the following comparison screenshots. These will give you an idea of what you can expect from this mod.

I personally like these new 3D models for the dragons. After all, the modder was inspired by Jurassic Park and I’m a huge dino fan. So, these new high-polygon dragon models are up my alley.

Those interested can go ahead and download the mod from this link.
