Skyrim Ultra HD Texture Pack

Recommended Posts

https://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/35507

 

This a recently release compilation of all MysteryModder's textures + many more (as per the description). Apparently

 

All textures are of the highest quality the resolutions are up to 4k where needed but are kept as low as possible to still hold the detail and all have their own custom made normals. The textures have been made with an intention to keep them to look the same as or as near to the original vanilla design as possible but give them a much needed boost in quality and detail, some have been changed but made to be as lore friendly as possible.

Thought we were staying away from texture packs? We already include some of these, but this could be a source for new suggestions for the individual mods.

We do however use stuff like Skyrim HD etc.

 

This could be installed along with those big packs and then subsequently overwritten by better separate equivalents. That's a lot of testing and comparisons to do though...

 

P.S. I can't determine if this pack looks good, as I the screens in my office are pretty crap quality :/ Will have a proper look at home.

Aren't these textures mostly 4k? I'd bet that is overkill for most things in Skyrim and might be best served for something like Extreme STEP, if that ever became a separate addendum.

Well, not mostly 4k - according to skunky, only 4 textures are 4k sized. That being said, I've actually seen someone post wanting all 4k, 8k, and 16k sizes.

 

The amount of overkill on this would be attempting to kill a fly with 100 intercontential missles. At once. And nuking the place afterwards, because it's the only way to be sure.

 

Jeez, people are crazy...

Is that not how everyone kills flies?!

The overhauls aren't really "texture packs" and I would put Book of Silence in the overhaul category as well. This mod is a bunch of miscellaneous mods tossed together into one "pack" (most of which are already covered by other mods in STEP from what I can tell).

Well it could be considered as a "misc" overhaul.

From what I can see in MO the pack overrides (partially or not) "Realistic Mushrooms", "High Quality Food and Ingredients", "HD Misc", "Tobes Highres Textures", "HD Sacks Retexture", "Mystery Modders Shrines", "Septim HD", "Skyrim Redesigned" and of course "Bethesda Hi-Res DLC Optimized".

It also overrides "Langleys Wood Metal and Stones Textures Workshop" from Skyrim Revisited and "Better Bedrolls" (yes I kept it).

That is a LOT of conflicting files that is already a part of STEP. I still say use it as a reference for mods that aren't already covered by STEP (if there is one that it includes).

Realistic Mushrooms is already included in this mod, but I don't think it should be evaluated on its size, but rather on the quality of the work. If other mods in STEP are better just put it in the correct order, that's what the conflicting graphics section is for.

Texture size is in fact become a very important factor to consider with the 3GB memory limit that many have already experienced.

Ok, I've had a look at it last night (briefly, I'm still finishing my Skyrim install, again) and some textures that are presented in the screens look very nice, but some I don't like. If majority of those items are 4k then it's not worth it I think. But if it's mixed sizes, as SRB stated, we can just place in the predetermined slot in Conflicting Graphinc section.

 

Nevertheless, I still think it's worth making compare session, but it's a LONG session - and I myself am quite limited on time unfortunately being kept busy with RL stuff :/

 

I may do some compares next week, I'm off work for a few days, so I should have some spare time.

      SKSE plugin with customizable JSON configuration.
      QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.
      The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:
      What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.
      The following NPCs and situations are addressed:
      Disables collision while the player is in dialogue. Disables collision between the player and their allies. Disables collision between the player and their summons. Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons. Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).

      I'm assuming Qudix will drop the Alpha from the title at some point. I have pre-emptively done so for this topic title. This mod adds various UI fixes and tweaks:
      AddItemMenu alternative (basically an explorer of the items for your list of plugins that can be then added to your inventory if desired if I understand it right) Stay at the System Page fix The ability to add/remove buttons from the main menu Remove the Creation Club banner.
