Todd Howard said last summer they would release a High Res Pack, he also mentioned attempting to unfuck the PC user interface:

I think you're misinterpreting his statements. The PC version already has higher-res textures than the console versions if you run at the highest detail settings. Unfortunately, they're still relatively low-res compared to games like Witcher 2 and Metro 2033. And they did make some PC-centric changes to the UI. Namely, the presence of hotkeys and mouse support.

If they do actually release a genuinely high-res texture pack, I'll be pleasantly surprised. If they completely redo the UI, I'll be completely shocked. At this point, it's pretty redundant anyway, as I doubt they could do any better than what SkyUI has already done.

The game needs cats - and cats with laser eyes that shoot bees out of their mouths.

If Bethesda releases an HD texture pack for PC for free I will actually be pretty impressed with them.

IMO, any game that chews up 211 hours of gameplay, then suddenly reveals new castles I have not seen before? Pretty damn impressive.

Beth is like what id used to be... Loving the support they are throwing at the PC... Pretty much since FO3....

You see the same effect in "from scratch" textures as well. They're too high-frequency looking, too noisy, too contrasty, too repetitious, and the normals have overly sharp peaks/valleys. There's also several flat textures applied directly to the model without taking its shape into account at all. Texturing ain't trivial, that's why the game's artists are paid

There's still several good ones out there, but finding them is tricky considering the sheer volume of mods. Sorting by highest downloaded/rated doesn't really help that much.

Actually...I'd like to know what is with the horse aggression in this game.

These are the first horses I know who will run toward a pack of wolves. Are they just confused?

At this point, I'd like to request some horse armor DLC.

Cowardly horses mod (horses run away now instead of fighting everything)

Cowardly (or cautious, if you prefer) wolves, for wolf lovers like me who hate being forced to kill unnaturally aggressive/suicidal wolves all the time.

The game needs aggressive bees.... I mean, really... just grab them out of the air with your bare hands without getting stung? Sheeeeesh.

^D^

PS- the random crashing that I was having appears to have been due to an SKSE bug for the release made on the day that 1.4 went legit. The SKSE released today fixed the problem.

Apparently the rumor mill is going off and about that it's a high res texture pack for PC users.

That'd be off the fucking hook.

Prepare the hook you want to be off of....

Here's the Steam CDR listing for Skyrim I was talking about earlier, it showed up last week - http://i.imgur.com/oY2gO.png

Had to shorten the URL because the site thought they were too long.

There are a lot of those but there are some amazing ones too. The guy who did the Whiterun HD mod has been working on other stuff too and his work is jaw dropping when you see it in-game.

I'd rather have a full PC UI, like Morrowind, but improved... instead of this flash based menu crap.
Skyrim's UI may be far from perfect but it's a damn-sight better than the spreadsheet clusterfuck that was Morrowind.
