[Official] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Information and Discussion Thread - Page 882

post #8811 of 12887
Ive just been playing with the High Res Texture pack that I downloaded on Steam. Ive got to get a couple other mods though, looking through the screenshot thread has got me wanting more. Im looking for world mods, grass, plants, rocks, buildings. Any suggestions would be awesome. Im not really wanting to run 20 mods or anything, just a couple.

The only one Im pretty sure Im going to get is Skyrim Flora Overhaul 1.5, unless you guys know of a better one.

The 2K Textures are a nicer, more crisp alternative to the official HD Textures. Flora Overhaul with Lush Trees and Lush Grass turn out quite nicely IMO. There's also an 8K rock texture mod, but I forgot the name. Searching "8K" at Nexus should get you the link to it though.

I would sent you the links, but I'm on my phone. frown.gif

Looks good, Ill check it out some more. Last night when I was messing with it I installed the HD 2k textures.

I'm having some trouble here.

got a brand new system, just built, 7970 Ghz Edition/3570K/8GB RAM. turned off all overclocks.

i went through the STEP Guide up to the interface tweaks section, and followed all recommendations, including choosing a lot of 1024 textures instead of 2k or 4k
Skyrim is still pretty damn jittery for me...i thought the 7970 would be able to handle this.

what should i check first?

Handle this?? The 7970 should be dominating that. I use 2K and 4K textures on just about everything and my 660Ti takes it like a boss.

Yea, from my experience with Skyrim it's more about VRAM than raw horsepower for the most part (rare exceptions, but it takes quite a bit). Most mid- to high-range cards have the power to handle the game and mods easily, it's the VRAM that gets eaten up - like my card has only 1GB, so as long as I stay below that, I run ~30fps using an ENB, and hit a steady 50 or more without ENB and max settings (besides MSAA).

I made a couple of cute petite Breton twins called Alessa and Tessa. I put them at 40% weight and 0.9 scale. biggrin.gif
