Yes, I realise that the MOAR project was mostly about meshes, but I can't figure out how to work with blender efficiently, so I thought I might give retexturing a try instead. So when/if the MOAR project relaunches some time, I might do some texture work. :) I'd gladly give these away for that project at least.

Did you make them entirely by yourself, or did you simply modify the originals? If you made them entirely yourself, you can do anything you want with them, even if they look similar to the originals. Bethesda has no say in the matter. On the other hand, if you simply modified what Bethesda made, the situation may be different. That's seems like a good reason NOT to modify Bethesda assets. Make new stuff. If your new stuff looks very similar to the original, that doesn't really matter. You made it, it's yours, and you can do what you want with it.

In the meantime I released all my MOAR assets here:

Don't know who uploaded the pictures on Moddb, but anyway:

While I'm flattered to see the pictures here and there and to read the comments, a comment on the moddb page makes me wonder if the "old/new" texture image should really be there.

Read HeinrichBhaal's comment here: http://www.moddb.com/engines/openmw/ima ... p-mapping2

So maybe the last two pictures could be removed and then add a description on the two screenshots, saying something like:

"This screenshot shows how normal + specular mapping looks in the OpenMW engine when shaders are enabled. Note that you need normal and specular mapped textures to use this feature. This particular image shows a texture not yet released, made by Lysol.

More info on shaders can be found here: https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title=TextureModding"

Btw, I'll make a new thread when I have more to show.
