Pretty much what the title says. Metal textures in this game are horrible eyesores. You know what I am talking about, the rusty metal textures which abound in this worlds architecture. What surprises me is I can't find a single texture mod that addresses this. Plenty of mods deal with the landscape, but almost none with the architecture, and those who do always ignore most of the metallic textures. Literally everything else, wood, stone, asphalt... has good textures replacers, but somehow nobody has done a good retexture of something so large and plentiful in the game? What am I missing?

Which metal textures do you mean? Like vehicles or just metal on buildings like rebar and stuff. I know EWI made some metal rextures in his old pack.

@NaturalMineralWater Metal used in architecture in general, especially rusty metal looks pretty bad. You can see it in shacks, houses, towers... all sorts of things. Things like the boomer houses at Nellis (not the wooden ones, the ones made out of tin, Loyal's house, or the hospital) or the armory and some of the barracks at the Divide, the Helios One tower exterior (where you activate it after redirecting the power)... just metal textures in general. I realized neither Ojo Bueno nor NMC cover these, and I can't find a texture pack for it.

@Carbony1 There are many to retexture those things, I'm looking for one that retextures metal.

I know what you mean. For me I settled with NMCs texture pack plus Rudy ENB. Makes it a bit more bearable to me. It seems there's only so much that mods can do to improve the old textures which is unfortunate

Okay, you should try NMC's or EWI's packs. Maybe check FO3 texture categories https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/categories/66/ loads of good stuff in FO3 nexus and it works for FNV.

@NaturalMineralWater NMC doesn't cover most metal textures. I've checked. Neither does Ojo Bueno. They cover some, but plenty of the most awful eyesores are still there.

I've checked FO3 nexus, and found plenty of great stuff, mostly courtesy of id2301, but I can't find what I'm looking for. And that's what I mean, there's texture replacers for everything: landscape, light, sky, armors, weapons... but about those giant eyesores nobody seems to care. The only pack that I've seen is the one that uses AI upscaling to cover every single texture, but even then, the models are pretty bad.

I can't find anything about EWI. Do you have a link?

here's the link for the EWI pack. I hope you find what you're looking for. You could always watch a tutorial on how to re-texture something yourself.

@NaturalMineralWater Thanks for the link, man! I actually hadn't heard about this modder.

So, he does cover some metal textures, not all, but at the same time, at least there's less eye sore now. Also, there's quite a bit of good stuff I wasn't looking for but it's nice to have so that's a plus.

No worries glad I could partially help. EWI was an old school texture artist who was banned maybe 3/4 years ago and disappeared off the face of the earth sadly. He had a great style for FNV.
