Is the HD tex pack (official one) worth it? I already have some texture packs, maybe a few flora/land ones and all armors redone. I think it might be more of a pain than its worth to install it over what I have.

Actually, if they are ESP, wouldn't my textures go over them? I dumped all my mods into the folders, very few actual ESPs are selected in my launcher.

It's not hard to edit the files. Takes like maybe 1 minute to do everything. This is from Xenius' Character Enhancement mod page
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=2356

Step-by-step guide on how to get texture replacements working with the official texture pack.

1. Disable the two .esp files HighResTexturePack01.esp and HighResTexturePack02.esp
2. Go to the Documents\My Games\Skyrim folder and open Skyrim.ini
3. Find the [Archive] section in the .ini file
4. Add the following two entries: HighResTexturePack01.bsa, HighResTexturePack02.bsa
5. Your .ini should look like this
6. Now you should be able to use texture replacements as usual

Are they worth it though? Not sure if they will just add a hit to my fps, and not really add any better visuals.

They don't, but you need to have them properly disabled to override their textures with your added ones.

Wait, so you're not supposed to re-enable them after you're done editing the configs ? ?

And there's two ini's you need to edit, you post above only mentioned one.

Nvm, I did more testing and I saw the Flora/Fauna mod working correctly,

And you can re-enable the bsp's once you do the edit, I was just checking.

I see the Flora/Fauna mod working correctly but I can't see a difference on textures with the official HD text pack from Bethesda enabled or disabled.

I even made a save staring at the same spot with multiple texture spots in view.

I think I remember hearing that they fixed the overwriting bug for the DLC in one of the latest patches. Maybe I'm crazy.
post #8229 of 12885
Hey anyone got any diea to fix this issue? I transfered a save from pc1 to pc2 but it wont show up in skyrim on pc2. Like all the other saves are these but i cannot see the one i transfered over.

if you have edited the .ini file and added the highres pack lines in, you dont need to tick those boxes.. if you have. the point of adding them in the .ini is not to disable them, its so the HighRes packs are always the first textures to load regardless of installed mods. then any mods you install are guaranteed to load after them.

which is why you can untick them from the list of data files, since they will automatically load first.
