Next-Gen Characters In Skyrim - Female Models Show "Subsurface Scattering" Tech Being Used (NSFW)

DSOGaming writes: "Our reader ‘Unreal’ has shared with us two videos, showing some WIP female models for Skyrim. Therefore, we decided to do a research and present you some more characters that look beyond what gamers would expect from this old title. And while almost all of these characters are based on Krista’s old version of Female Body Replacer, Krista shared some new images from the latest version of it, in which the modder has been experimenting with Subsurface Scattering."

Wow, impressive. I hope our current-gen consoles will eventually be able to render these graphics. I'm not shelling out $1000+ for a PC.

It's doable with an R9 270 and Skyrim's engine allocates VRAM poorly and has a hard 3.1GB block cap before crashing. It isn't unreasonable for the PS4 to reach graphics like this at all. I'm not sure if anyone other than first party developers would take the time to optimize it enough...

(Though I will say it doesn't take a $1000+ PC to do this, $600 should do it.)

@StockpileTom:

Skyrim originally had a 3.1GB system ram limit but that was increased to 4GB in the most recent official patch. The Vram limit is 6GB. Luckily Skyrim is mostly Vram dependent. Even with all 4k textures, it isn't really all that hard to run as long as you have enough Vram.

@Dasteru

Really? Awesome to know that.

@Stockpile Tom

You have no idea what you are talking about stop deceiving people. Lol if you think that a 270 and a low power 1.8GHz 8 core CPU will be able to handle visuals like this. That's a joke. Even a 780 struggles with all of these mods. The amount of AA alone would be too much for the PS4 to handle. Give me a break.

MRMagoo1231072d ago

@stockpile

I agree its doable on the ps4 if the customers dont mind playing at 1fps but I dont think that will fly.

Ka7be1072d ago

It could be possible your. But anyway, Skyrim is nothing but an overrated game, They give Distiny low scores. But they give a game like Skyrim with terrible hit direction and terrible combat system, high scores lol.

AndrewLB1072d ago

Sam- That's what mods are for. All those things you mention have fixes.

StockpileTom- Umm... right. If you really think that, then I'm a wealthy Nigerian businessman who needs your help. Please send...

uncharted 4 looks much better than this.

Maddens Raiders1072d ago

Damn. This was definitely worth the click. Great post.

ThunderPulse1072d ago

Wow your hate for consoles isn't obvious.

KidBroSweets21071d ago

These really do look great but in all honesty, is anyone else wondering why these mods always have to be so pervy???

As for these skyrim mods...I've tried them (got a monster PC, need it for work) and modders did AMAZING JOB but stil chars feel empty and without the "soul" unlike Ryse characters ( I mean..look at 3rd gif!). They just seem very stiff, doll like. I'd take more joints anyday over 4k textures. Animation is what really makes chars come to life.

@e-p-ayeaH

Uncharted 4 isn't a large open world game like Skyrim and we haven't seen gameplay yet, just a short in-engine cutscene.

oh my, this looks too damn good...sooo good, ahhh :)

CertifiedGamer1072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

That is a single model standing alone in the game usually pc gamers take pictures in angles that make this look better than it should but whats the point of having an one amazing avatar in the game when the rest like wolves, beast, building, etc... can match that one avatar. I know PC can make it but the developers of the game would have to invest in developement to make a game that looks completely like this instead of one character mod. I am not trying to knock it because it does look amazing and it shows what is pc is already capable of doing.

Tsar4ever011072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

Subsurface Scattering, Didn't Mark Carney mentioned this tech at the Feb/20 PS4 unveiling when he demo the Unreal engine 4 on the PS4 Dev-kits, Not that I assume the PS4 could match This height of fidelity, but I think the ps4 could do this too.

abstractel1071d ago (Edited 1071d ago )

Games have been using sub surface scattering since PS3/Xbox360. It's the quality of the implementation that's rising these days.

I'm a huge PC gamer and will play most new-gen games on PC, but this is a mod made mostly by amateurs so this still doesn't look as good as Uncharted 4 that's completely optimized for a specific hardware. People still don't seem to get that with PC gaming.

PC gamers (myself included) should be happy that console generations exist and keep coming out every ~7-8 years because it's the consoles that really drive this industry.

PCpower1071d ago

Guess what?? Graphics quality is SUBJECTIVE. There is no scientific way to prove that the Uncharted games have better graphics. Sorry pal, but science is the truth, and no method has been established to define what is the best graphics. No cigar for you.........

I have a PC capable of running these... But I'm to lazy to set up the SKSE and mods for it... *Sigh*

StockpileTom1072d ago

SKSE isn't much of an issue unless you are talking about activating and configuring the built in memory allocation fix. Cleaning the mods and optimizing the textures is tedious as hell though.

NovusTerminus1072d ago

SKSE isn't hard, I have had that before It's just the rest of it... WAY to lazy... lol

...maybe one day...

MRMagoo1231072d ago

If I could run them with my PC I would be inviting friends around to have a look lol.

irokster1072d ago

If I had these mods on Skyrim, I'd have a real hard time holding myself back from rubbing one out every 2 hours... :p

Tundra1072d ago

Well...

At least he's honest lol.

ONESHOTV21072d ago

if there were no mods like this in skyrim i don't think i could have put more than 50 hrs in ........... now with mods it over 1k hrs of game place this is why i love pc gaming.

Agent_hitman1072d ago

Wow look at that photo with a hot woman.. amazing Skyrim mod
