NowGamer: "We check out Bethesda's surprise high-res texture pack that came alongside the Skyrim Creation Kit: but is the improvement noticeable?"
Er, no differnce. Apart from the axe.
Yeah, it's a bit better but nothing like I was hoping to expect TBH.
This is only a 1k texture improvement. Skyrim HD (2k textures) on skyrim.nexusmods.com looks better, but it doesn't include NPCs or enemies.
There are differences, but they're fairly minor. It's not a high-resolution texture pack so much as it is giving the vanilla PC game different (read: slightly better) textures than the console version.
it's actually a pretty big difference and looks a lot nicer in game(there's no more blatantly ugly textures) it's just that it's still the same textures their just less compressed.
This texture pack has no effect on terrain, only effects items, objects characters and a few rocks and stuff. The stuff they did change i would say has textures comparable to crysis on pc. IE mod texture packs almost never improve any of those things, so Im certain this texture pack was made to compliment texture modders.
It makes the arrows in knees look much better.
It makes'em sharper
Modders have done a way better job than this, pretty disappointing. For people interested in increasing their Skyrim visual experience, I recommend: - The Skyrim HD mod http://skyrim.nexusmods.com... - The Realistic Lighting mod http://skyrim.nexusmods.com... - The Realistic Water Textures mod http://skyrim.nexusmods.com... - The Skyrim Flora Overhaul mod http://skyrim.nexusmods.com... - The Skyrim Enhanced Shaders mod http://skyrim.nexusmods.com...
I really think with the quality of some of these mods Bethesda should actively recruit the talent behind them.
Yea, a waste of time for Bethesda, the modded textures are unreal in comparison.
ill stick with the modding community lol
