About this mod

Tired of blurry whiterun textures? Try this texture pack out which contains redrawn textures up to 4 times the initial resolution while keeping the original game\'s art direction intact.

Permissions and credits
This is a high-quality texturing mod (currently for Whiterun). As you can see in the comparison pictures, i try to keep the same feel to the textures while having actual quality instead of bluriness. Some are actually redrawn at 4 times the resolution of the original file.

Textures are 2048x2048 and 1024x2048.

Here you can see a before/after comparison of different sections of the Whiterun Town (watch in 1080p):

Here's some articles about the mod:

Video feature (earlier version though) by MMOxReview:


1) Extract files
2) Copy Textures folder to Skyrim/Data folder
3) Play
4) Most likely you'll need the "allow 4gb ram usage" patch to allow skyrim to use more RAM otherwise you'll encounter purple textures/crashes -> you can find it here :


1) Go to your Skyrim/Data folder
2) Delete the Textures folder (not the big file, just making sure !)

Credits and distribution permission

That being said, it's a simple texture mod though, so there shouldn't be any issues.
