Description:

The goal of Project Atlas is to identify the most performance heavy areas of vanilla Morrowind and some popular mods and target high usage/strain meshes in those areas for atlasing. This effort involves reworking the UVs for those meshes and creating texture atlases to cover various sets.

Download the "Project Atlas" main file as well as the "Textures - MET" file.

For the One Day Modernization mod list: use the 00 Core, 01 Textures - MET, and 05 Wood Poles - Hi-Res Texture folders. Also delete these files (or move them to some outside folder):
