    Who's excited for the mods that will be made with this? Are you going to play around with it yourself? I sure am going to!
    Also, the texture pack: are you going to use it?

    Edit: added video from Source. And why did there get so much space between the image and the quote...?

    I assume that if this officially mod makes the framerate on my PC go to crap, I can easily uninstall it, right?

    CPU: Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz (x64) SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1
    GPU: eVGA GeForce GTS 250 1GB GDDR3
    RAM: 3GB DDR2 SDRAM PC2 6400
    OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    (I use to have 4GB, but the other RAM module freaked out and caused the PC to lock up during the POST/Boot process).

    Weird. Just installed the mod, and the data files do indeed indicate that the mod is installed, but....I saw no drop in framerate. Does anyone know just what textures were affected, and how can I tell what changed?

    that place
    Personally, I think the official space pod mod is bigger news than this new texture pack.

    ...SPAAAAAAAAACE

    I would never have thought that a high-res texture pack would have been needed.

    Any insight on why this is happening to me, that is, why I can't see any improvements? I honestly don't see any changes.

    I still haven't installed it seeing as Skyrim is on my other pc, but the improvement seems pretty amazing from that pic. =O

    Shame on you! You should have at least a 20% overclock on that CPU. :P

    Weird..I do see a very perceptible difference in that picture alright...maybe I'm just not looking hard enough, but here's a video I captured using Bandicam (and I know that the fps in the video is low, but when I'm not recording in 720p, I get 50-60fps). Is the mod in effect or not?





    What, and cut the CPU's life in half? Fat chance. Besides, I only have the stock cooler (okay, I confess that don't know jack squat about overclocking safely). Plus I don't want to fry any of the motherboard components, as I'm trying to save up on on apartment and don't want to spend money on a new one.

    Oh, and I'm 100% convinced the bloody mod isn't working for me. Out of all the millions of people who have this game, I happen to be the only one who can't see a difference. My hardware isn't THAT bad to the point of not having it work. I have half the settings on High while the other is on Ultra.

    You won't cut an E8400's life in half by putting a slight overclock on it, trust me.

    Can you at least let me know why I can't see a difference with the mod (in the video)?

    Either way, I don't trust myself overclocking the CPU.

    I think it might be because of your CPU. I have that exact processor inside my old PC (Clocked to 3.6) and a AMD FX4100 inside another. There seems to be a differance to me between the two machines running the same game. You'll notice the Hi rez textures when you're inside more than you would just travelling outside with the E8400 it seems. I had a look at the game running on my other machine (FX 4100) and everything looked better, inside or out.

    Hehe! Running this will be no problem for my computer. So bethesda encourages players to create mods? Well, I salute them, for this epic insight.

    I read somewhere that not all textures have been res'd up, so that could be the problem.

    i can barely play the game stable on medium settings, installing the HD pack will only make the lag worse i would have thought.

    Well that would certainly explain it, as it sounds like it's a work in progress. At least could someone tell if the weapons/shields I showed in the video have been re-textured or not? Funny thing is, I can run the game at nearly 60fps with high/ultra settings. FSAA/FXAA and Anisotropic filtering kill the performance like there's no tomorrow.

    Edit 4:31PM - Apparently, the modified textures are just the originals (no new textures), but they are improved, yet more subtle to notice right away. Glad to know that my specs aren't that crappy.
