Er, no differnce. Apart from the axe.

fluffydelusions2208d ago

Yeah, it's a bit better but nothing like I was hoping to expect TBH.

ChrisW2208d ago

This is only a 1k texture improvement.

Skyrim HD (2k textures) on 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.

Darkfocus2208d ago

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.

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
- The Realistic Lighting mod
- The Realistic Water Textures mod
- The Skyrim Flora Overhaul mod
- The Skyrim Enhanced Shaders mod

I really think with the quality of some of these mods Bethesda should actively recruit the talent behind them.

Letros2208d ago

Yea, a waste of time for Bethesda, the modded textures are unreal in comparison.
