Good time of the say for all who reads this thread! To keep on this game content sharing, I decided to post here some HD (hi-resolution) textures for game models, both previously uploaded and still unextracted. Standard textures look poor and not so easily altered in graphic software as large maps, so I looked for available HD textures, and found them almost for everything in SoM.
Here are all hi-Res textures for character and weaponry which I could extract from that well-known HD pack for that game. If some of textures are missing for that character, it means there were no HD textures for him or her, as for two female heroines - Marwen and Eryn. For Eryn I found just hair textures. So if you have any textures for them, even standard ones, post here too to complete this set. If some folders do not have diffuse, normal, specular textures or have just Normal Map, these ones can be missing in the most of archives and so I missed them too, or there can be no HD diffuse textures at all. I noticed that sometimes missing diffuse textures can be found in one of all archives, and sometimes they seem to be absent in HD pack. Maybe, they made just HD normal maps for unimportant game items. Just look in your installed game archives for these items, you may find the rest of the maps there.
All textures come as DDS and were converted by me from original tex0 files with a script converter from Xentax forum, so they have original quality. They are 32-bit and quite large, sized from 1024 to 4096 px, diffuse, normal and specular (and sometimes other maps too) and named as standard game textures, so it’s easy to determine where to apply them.
If you want to extract other HD textures by yourself, you’ll have to use Arch05 Explorer to view the contents of archives and Luigi Auriemma’ BMS tool and his scripts for Shadow of Mordor to extract all Arch 05 archives to corresponding folders and then use the Python script to convert them from tex0 to dds. These tools are here -
Allows to view the contents of arch05 archives, for HD pack it shows instantly which textures it keeps within.
**Quick BMS **
For all large archives use quickbms_4gb_files.exe with new_fear.bms script, it works fine for all SoM archives at all. The program prompts what to do step-by-step. It’s better to extract each archive to its separate folder, then just press Y (yes) when it asks to choose between Y or N and then press any necessary letter to handle with unpacked files as you want (I press A and the magic performs).
This Python script requires installation of Python on your PC. I used Python 27, not sure about other version. When Python is installed, if you use Windows, just associate this .py extension file with Python.exe and double-click it to run the script. Then it opens the Python’s console and offers to write the path to the directory with tex0. files
(e.g C:\Unpacked\Outro) If the path is ended with \ , the script converts all subfolders automatically. Super-easy and super-fast.
Firstly, there are those textures, for which I have corresponding meshes, because for the most part I have no meshes so far. If you have extracted any missing meshes, please, upload them to this thread, they will be useful for game modders. For missing mesh I write it next to each texture link. For faster downloading from Mega I would recommend the portable mini-application MiPony, it grasps Mega links and downloads several links simultaneously and very fast.
As for all plenty of Talion skins from all DLCs - in that HD pack I found his main textures, the Beastmaster skin, the dark ranger skin (player_skin01), Bright Lord, Lithariel and Power of Shadow (Zainzadan) skins. I am not sure about Captain of the Watch, because I haven’t recognized it within the textures yet, maybe I don’t have it. Zainzadan’s skin is listed inder Black Captains, Bright Lord is under Celebrimbor, and Lithariel’s skin textures are collected in her archive. Else I found his cinematic eye textures in FX (special effects) folder and posted here too.
Talion’s Main Skin mesh is here - http://www.mediafire.com/download/deq44rbd81jahbl/Talion_FBX_and_Textures.zip
Talion Main Skin Textures
Talion Beast Master Skin - NO SPECIFIC MESH
Dark Talion Armor - NO SPECIFIC MESH
He appears in the original game as a wraith and honestly, his textures are far from perfection even in HD. The elvish form is only in the Bright Lord DLC as Talion’s skin, and I have no mesh for this skin, so both are below.
Celebrimbor’s mesh as wraith - http://www.mediafire.com/download/2kmhd9250s5kejs/Celebrimbor_FBX.zip
Celebrimbor Original Wraith Form Textures
Celebrimbor Bright Lord DLC (player skin 03) - NO MESH
This archive contains both original Lithariel’s textures and Talion’s skin (player 07), combined in one folder. NO MESH.
Sauron’s mesh - http://www.mediafire.com/download/ktosjv6chpu6llr/Sauron_FBX.zip

b) Hallas HD Textures (not all textures, has face, hair, and coat diffuse and normals, and only normal map for body)
c) Ioreth’s HD Textures
d) Ohtar NO MESH
This is some ranger’s outfit, cannot remember such character in the game. ?? What is that model?
e) Miscellanoius Rangers’ heads 01-07 POSSIBLY NOT ALL MESHES
Two random meshes for rangers and ranger women is here -http://www.mediafire.com/download/9xeqle2n2mrfvoy/Rangers_Male_and_Female.zip
But I have not found any specific ranger women’s textures as HD. But they must be in standard sets.

His mesh - http://www.mediafire.com/download/af9fk1aqn8k1444/Gollum_FBX_and_Textures.zip
Gollum’s HD textures -
Now all textures which have no corresponding meshes yet, but I extracted them for future use.
Hirgon NO MESH
- **Resistance Men Bodies, Hair and Armor **- NO MESHES
Slaves Bodies, Heads - NO MESHES
All slave-related textures -
Slave Corpse textures -
- **Eryn’s Hair **- NO MESH
Just her hair hi-res textures, hell knows where to look for the rest. She was available as NPC in the game, so I feel her textures should be in game archives.
- **Torvin **NO MESH
**II) Orcs and Orc Armor **
Archives contain all available textures for all orcs, who appear in the game. From all them I have only meshes for Archer and Berserker, if you need the rest, you’ll have to extract them by yourselves. Orcs’ outfits are mostly painted on their textures, though some helmets can be used separately and head are quite large and of a great variety. So if you need these lost textures for orcs, just find HD pack and check Intro, Outro, UDUN and Son archives. The main part of orcs has full set of maps.
Meshes are here - http://www.mediafire.com/download/leo8wy65918h7za/Orc_Archer_and_Berserker_FBX.zip
Orcs Heads, Hair and Torso -
**Orcs Wounds and Scars **
The contents of char\global folder for all wounded and killed orcs.
**Ratbag’s head **
I found his head only as separate HD, the body seems to be in common textures (I don’t know how it is exactly named in the game models).
**Orcs Armor, Characters, Helmets **are here -
III) Monsters Textures - NO MESHES
- **Caragors **(or wargs)

NO MESHES also, expect from the base Talion’s sword and dagger, posted above - http://en.file-upload.net/download-11847585/Blades.rar.html
- Talion’s weapons
All 6 texture sets for 3 swords and 3 daggers. the archives contain both mid-res and Hi-res textures, obviously with different UVs.
Celebrimbor’s elven bow, all textures
- **Blackhand Weapons **
Two swords and one mace of Black Captains
Lithariel’s Sword. Must be in that DLC with Lithariel’s skin, if I remember it right.
4)** Sauron’s Mace** - all textures
Rangers’ Weapons - 2 swords of rangers and the Normal map for sword of Hallas, maybe you find the rest in game main archives.
Resistance Weapons - one resistance sword and Hirgon’s sword.
Slaves’ equpment - a broom and a hammer.
- **Orcs Weapons **- all available orkish weapons, mostly with full sets of all texture maps, but you find missing diffuse, normal or whatever else, sorry for incomplete posting, I just have not so much time to test each archive folder. It’s the biggest set of game weapons, so it’s kinda hard to remember all missing maps.
And one more thing, game plants and flowers. Maybe they are unimportant but I love those original elvish names and textures looks nice. So here is that archive too.
Plants and Vegetation
The rest of the game pack was HD seamless textures of stone walls and ground and textures for props like table. Maybe later I can upload them too, but they need particular extracted meshes of architecture and props to determine what textures belong to any mesh, so I leave them in the rest so far. They are collected mostly in Udun and Son archives, in “materials” folders. Textures for props must be in Prefabs or in “details”. In any case, Arch05 explorer makes this search faster, so if you want to try your hand on these Hd pack too, just visit Xentax forum, there is a special thread for Shadow of Mordor and many guys, who understands this game hacking more better than me. I hope these textures will come handy to all who need them. Good luck and happy modding!
