Important Info for Nexus Files
All files are being uploaded again. They were repacked, so that you no longer need to rename anything. Unpack the part file (end in a number) and put them all in the same directory to unpack each mod (just decompress the file ending in .001 and it will automatically do the rest).

Whenever you have a problem opening any archive, use the program that created it. I have found rar files that will only decompress with winrar and 7zip files that only work with 7zip. When they fail to open with the other program it says they are corrupt when they are not. All my files are compressed with 7zip, so even Winzip may not work.



This is a collection of HiRes textures for Fallout 3. Most of the TexMesh textures were converted to HiRes. This means that you get the sharpened and more realistic textures of TexMesh but they now they will be even crisper and more detailed.

It is strongly suggested that you install either the TexMesh Filler Textures for HiRes (if you are going to use all the HiRes textures) or install TexMesh Textures first.
This will help you keep the the same look for all the textures regardless of being HiRes or Vanilla.

Since TexMesh Meshes only reduces the glossiness of all objects, with no additional load to your system, you should install it (at any time). It replaces all the Vanilla meshes with (mostly) toned down versions.

Since HiRes is a texture mod it does not require restarting the game, and will not wreck a saved game (ever).


Please visit my webpage for links to the files. All patches will be posted here for ease of access for you.

New File
A new file has been added to the HiRes links list (on my web page). It is the TexMesh Filler Textures for HiRes. This is for new users who are going to play with all the HiRes textures. Instead of having to download TexMesh Textures, you can download this much smaller pack and install it. This will give you all the files that were not converted to HiRes, and save you a lot of extra downloading. Hybrid Normals is necessary if you are using this Filler Pack since I left out normal maps to keep the file size so small (to help you download faster).

Hybrid Normals - There are a few normals in HiRes but these are better

Manual Patch
I just found out that my upload of HiRes has folder problems. Here is a manual patch from my website, which you may need to perform if you downloaded the HiRes pack (not armor & weapons) before Aug 30. It just involved copy and pasting about 6 directories, and is very easy. I apologize for the inconvenience.

All files are loose, as the BSA packer is corrupting even the files that are just Stored (no compression). This will make it easy to patch, and should give a small performance boost as the archive is not being decompressed during the game.
