Bethesda have announced that their creation kit and High Resolution Texture Pack are available on steam. They have also confirmed the requirements for the download.
Ohhh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah .... :D :D :D
3 Gigs of high res textures this is awesome man. Long live PC gaming.
Greenburg called, he wants to know why they didn't get this on Xbox 30 days ago. Who is going to break the bad news to him? Trolololol
People these days don't know sarcasm or a joke
i know right? :D
It's hard to convey sarcasm in words, because if that was-then it went right over my head.
you'll just have to guess ;)
can't wait to dig into this
Nice! Let the user created content begin!
downloading @ 50kbps on optic fibre :S
Does Steam usually slow down when there's high demand? Never downloaded anything -as announced- until now and I"m experiencing slow DL times too..
yeah, but when there is slow down, its probably absurdly high demand, i cant even begin to download it. Well considering how many people had been playing skyrim on steam the past couple of months, i cant say im surprised we managed to pretty much knock down the server
Downloading at 3.4 MB/s Eff yea.
Change locations, maybe there's an issue with your local server.
Pure epic :D I wish more devs supported modding in their games in such ways. Looking forward to some comparison shots on that texture pack.
Skyrim was made for the PC!! Let the modding begin..
Question: Are these High-Res Textures better than the "2K Textures" mod? like are they actually 4k?
No, not for the Textures that 2K replaces. However the Bethesda pack changes the little things that modders have left out... such as objects like meat, apple's etc.
Yea it seems that most of the high res textures added to the game are smaller objects, I guess they left the biggest stuff to modders.
The texture pack i believe only changes interactive objects, chairs, table, characters plants, so on. I dont think it changes turrain at all. Aside from dungeons, their pretty legit now.
Well I did notice that some of the rocks on the sides of walls in whiterun are actually much higher resolution now, and the wood on houses is also, but no terrain has changed at all.
Wow that's cool.
Download all the mods!
