HOLY SEVEN HELLS VALAYRIAN STEEL!
Valyrian steel is darker, guys. Last time you said you were going to correct this :S
Gonna need a source for it being darker than this.
It depends on the sword
It does depend on the sword...but in general, from the sword descriptions available, almost all are said to be black/ near-black/ dark gray/ quite dark in color. Multiple swords also have names referencing darkness or the night. Ned's own Ice - and by extension, Oathkeeper and Widow's Wail - could also fit into this, as it could be a play on the term "black ice."
These swords are dark gray. But they also have specular maps, making them look brighter than they are.
maybe you should make the specular maps weaker (?)
In the pictures is clear that the blades are pretty darker than plain steel. I'd say they look "dirty" rather than dark gray, but it's probably just due to the light reflection. I bet they look dark gray with a weaker light source.
Good job Cozur! That's the way...! ;)
The only description I keep remembering (aside from the vague "dark") is "smokey" but what the does that even mean?
I always pictured something like Damascus steel, myself.
Looks amazing, I believe they shouldn't be darker than they are GRRM said that they look like the damascus blades in the time hence the darkness comes from when compared to a normal steel. however The hilts could be a bit longer (Personal opinion) as many of them was used without the shield which makes me think that they are not arming swords, but a rather longsword where the user could use the weapon on one hand and may also strike and block using the second hand at the pommel
looking pretty good.
Quick question as I cannot seem to find anything about it... its been quite a while since I played this mod - are Valyrian weapons/armor in the mod?
currently you can obtain one if you finish the a quest started in the tavern of White Harbour

Would be lovely if they were but 1 point of swing-damage, 1 point of thrust-damage and 2 points of speed above masterwork castle steel. That way they're not overpowered, yet they feel worthwhile to get your hands on. Just because they're Valyrian doesn't mean you're obligated to make them into uber weapons. A slight edge over other swords would make it fun to work to obtain them.
These will be tournament rewards, similar to the Valyrian dagger we can get right now?
I was expecting Valyrian swords to be more ornate, these look like common swords...
As good as they look, I agree with you a bit. Very tempted to model and texture a few swords myself also as a donation of sorts for the fun I had with this mod.
