The HD DLC  Diffuse textures for some textures such as female ghoul, are exactly the same resolution and file size as the vanilla diffuse textures. But the Normal map and Specular are both increased to 4k?? 

Is this Bethesda just f***ing with us or could they legitimately no give a larger diffuse cos they made the files during making the game a max of 2k and so only could increase the Normals and Speculars without seeing quality loss?

I am sure the bump detail of the skin and shininess will look better, but... I could do that myself. Was hoping for 4K diffuse textures. I am sure some diffuse texture in that pack might be 4K but sadly not the regular, non-feral female ghouls.

I run my PC through my 4k 55" TV - on 4k. So visual differences are really noticable.

 

I downloaded the "HD" DLC, And tbf.. I didnt notice any REAL difference wondering around the game apart from a noticable FPS drop in Boston central.

 

Absolute Garbage - I removed it straight away. The HD texture packs you can get through the mods are significantly better and nowhere near as GPU intensive.

yeah but most hd mods dont go into too much detail of what they do. I can find 4 k human skins sure, but only want the Ghoul male and female textures.

Heyas Oynlen - Yeah, it's really not much of a secret that Butthesda did a bad job with the DLC textures.  They totally did NOT allow the devs the chance to do them Right, or to optimize them for gaming.

Hate to say it, but total waste of money. [Edit] I stand corrected!  Thanks Orynlen, Gaela! [/Edit]  Especially since the modders know how to do it right, and don't throw a bill at you for it.

Isn't the official HD textures DLC for free? For the rest I only can agree with the other posters, the differences vanilla to vanilla HD are not worth it. I use a bunch of HD texture mods instead but mostly 2k, as I don't see so much gain from 4k. BTW I quite often find some HD even too sharp and detailed, so the world looks like a toy diorama when moving around. I tried some 4k skin textures but had ctds a lot, so I avoid them.

Thanks for the correction there, Orynlen and Gaela.  You guys are correct, through sources that can verify your ownership, you Can get it without having to whip out the electronic payment card.  I'm actually really surprised at Bethesda on that one.

I have read problems (and fixes) about 4k textures causing blackface bug because the skin tint is wrong resolution. Skin tint is only something used on NPCs with skin tones or extra textures like scars and make-up etc I think ..and of course player. My npcs are much simpler and use none of that. I found a site that up-scales PNG to twice it size and I cant see any quality loss, so I'll try that for the diffuse. I did find an online paid service that can upscale to huge wall print sizes without loss as well as remove compression caused artifacting.. or whatever its called.. Sounds impressive and rates were ok. $6.99 a moth for up to 999 images per month or a per image payment system.

Lets 16k every texture in the game. hahahaha

Ahhhhhhahahahahaha!!!!  *Evil Bad Guy Laugh*  Yes!  We must stress test the video card of every gaming rig in the world!!

Almost 1,000 pics at that kind of resolution for only 7 bucks isn't too bad of a deal!  Unless they try to wrangle you in with some kind of fees, or a recharge.  

Yeah, I can't even try to upscale a pic to 5k on this computer that I'm on now.  (craptop with 8gigs of Ram and a 2 gig shared memory video card).  If I do, Photoshop lags.  And lags.  And lags.  Dunno about on my other machine, haven't tried it on there.  But this one definitely doesn't like 4k jpgs.
