This is just a texture replacer that doesn't need any .esp, you just copy the "texture" folder into your Oblivion/Data folder. The textures enhance and give repair hammers, lock picks and the skeleton key a better look. There are three different versions of the repair hammer: Gold, Silver, and Metal. You can only use one of them.
 Version History
- Enhanced textures and new alpha filter.
- Choices for hammer textures.
As I've said before, small mods like these are the ones I like to use. Smaller mods allow me to customize everything more easily. If I downloaded a huge texture replacer that replaced everything, I would have to pick and choose which textures I liked. With mods like this, I can pick and choose mods I like. Anyway, this mod retextures the tools (lockpicks, repair hammers, and the skeleton key). The new textures are a nice improvement on the originals, and don't stand out too much. Also, in version 1.1, you have a choice of three different materials for the repair hammer. I stuck with metal, personally. Now, in version 1.2, Ceano has enhanced the textures, making these tools look even better.
Once again I am with Galahaut in saying this is a nice small mod that should be gotten with the other small mods like VA's Better Gold mod.
