just an FYI to viewers: even full screen, this particular youtube embed won't go above 360 resolution, so you have to go to youtube to see it in full resolution and see the differences.

The improvements are barely noticeable. I was expecting a lot more

Yeah, just went to youtube to watch in 1080p. No difference. Seems like a lot of work went into this and not a whole lot came back out of it. There is a slight difference but if you were actually playing and not just standing there staring at the grass you would never notice.

It was fixed this morning. You should be able to switch to full screen and adjust video resolution.

Alot of the common textures like wood, rock, and many ground textures were replaced. It really was difficult to make them out at a quick glance, but once you know the textures and compare them you will notice quite a difference.

Things to keep in mind, the youtube videos are still very compress and the native resolution is actually a bunch of pixels below the selected resolution.. ie unless you choose the 1080p option, it will be hard to notice anything. Personally I thought skyrim did very well with its textures in the original release... and the update pack is simply a nice bonus for us pc users.

I think people were probably expecting the huge differences you usualy see with user made texture packs, without realizing that a) the new texture is a completely different source from the original and b) the performance drop on these megatextures is often huge and needs a poerful pc while a nominal pack like this one probably had no performance impact.

btw image verification sucks balls if it doesn't even work. I type whats i the image and it says it is wrong.

Most of the textures from this pack are only 1024x1024. It's only useful right now because modders are still working on retexturing everything.

Looks to me like all they've done is run a sharpen filter over the standard textures and some think those are HI-Res sorry but I've got 4k textures in some of the mods from Nexus if they can't compete with that then why bother
