Does anyone know of a good textures mod? I tried Vivid fallout but in doors textures still look bad take a look at this screenshot for example, my character is high resolution and detailed while the pillar behind is low texture resolution.

Textures can have an impact on performance.  Loose files can also impact performance. 

 

Check out this guide:  https://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/23556

There is an updated version being maintained by Cybedanz on Discord.  The files needed to optimize your original game textures and include other textures within those archives can be downloaded from this site. 

 

Texture mods I use (I have combined some of these with the original BA2s for efficiency and to reduce load times and increase performance)

https://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/37799  (again, great textures from this mod author)

https://www.nexusmod...out4/mods/34181  (all of his texture mods are top notch, check all of them out.  Don't be fooled by the AIO title, they are all broken down to several mods due to size and when created.

There are subjective qualities in all textures.  You may find some of them are conflicting because they touch the same assets, but not all of them.  You will need to pick and chose which ones you like and adjust your load order or create an archive with your favorite ones.  What I do is pick a spot with a particular textures that I may want to change, save the game and switch load orders until you get what you like. 

 

Also, check out this mod tutorial which includes many of the texture mods above and the load order the author believes will represent the best textures. 

 

Try not to overdo it as I have in the past.  I had a ton of texture mods and though many were archive files, not all of them were and it takes tome for the game engine and your PC to load them. 

 

As for 4k textures, unless you have a phenomenal system and monitor (and, in my opinion, even if you do) the difference between 2 K and 4 K is negligible and the tradeoff is performance, which, is not a good tradeoff. 

 

Of course, I am far from being an expert, my experience is based an mistakes and reading a lot from many many mod authors.  Create a test profile so that you can test these out and pick and chose what you like or look at the guides and use their recommendations and pick which ones you like.  It will take time.  

 

I have uploaded several settlement images on Nexus of my settlements using many of these textures so you can see if you like them. 

 

Good luck and don;t be like me and over-analyze and obsess over the perfect texture.

 

PS  Just thought of this, you may also be seeing a DOF issue, not sure.  personally, I turn that off as it is more distracting than I like.
