Okay then, if that's true, link me to all of the mods that would be equal to the Hi-Res texture pack with comparison screenshots showing that they are indeed better. Which, even if there is one and it is better, I doubt it'll match up to the ease of use of "Install DLC" and done.
Get the hi-res texture pack, and S.T.E.P. Done. Any textures not hit by S.T.E.P are still higher res than stock and it's ridiculously easy to install and debug in case of issues, people here are just complaining for the sake of it.

Unless of course you just want a few mods like me, all of which tend to work well together. Seriously, just because a few people don't want what could easily be an optional feature, why should it not be made at all?
