Skyrim Hi-Rez Pack & Creation Kit

The Bethesda Blog announces the release of the promised Creation Kit for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, providing modification support for their RPG sequel. They also announce Steam now features a Skyrim High Resolution Texture Pack as free DLC, confirming indications that such a graphics upgrade was the "surprise" recently hinted at by Bethesda. Here's a tutorial video introducing the creation kit, and here's word:
Modders rejoice! We’re pleased to announce that the Skyrim Creation Kit is now available!

With the Creation Kit’s release, fans can now upload, download, and install custom content through the Skyrim Workshop on Steam. Get a crash course by reading level designer Joel Burgess’ blog post, and be sure to read up on our list of best practices for modding. Need more help? Don’t forget to to check out the official Wiki at www.CreationKit.com. In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be sharing tutorial videos for beginners and experts alike. Check out the first tutorial above, and visit the Bethesda Game Studios YouTube Channel for more.

In addition to releasing the Creation Kit and Skyrim Workshop, today we’re allowing players to experience Skyrim as you’ve never seen it before with the Skyrim High-Resolution Texture Pack. Before downloading it from Steam, make sure your system requirements exceed Skyrim’s recommended specs before attempting to install, including Windows Vista/7, a minimum of 4GB of system RAM, and a DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers.

LCD televisions will usually have their brightness settings maximized to blot out the sun to attract attention. Plasma and CRT televisions can't hit those same levels of brightness output regardless of what setting the manufacturer imposes. Showroom conditions are deceptive and made to sell televisions to uninformed consumers, you can't reliably judge a television based on the criteria observed there.

I'm glad you're happy with your purchases but it seems more that you don't like the idea of something superior existing than you are interested in talking about the best quality televisions.
So you're stating that a) I'm uninformed, and b) I chose to buy a more expensive TV because I couldn't accept that cheaper plasma TVs were better?

Dades wrote on Feb 9, 2012, 16:10:
If I bought a plasma tomorrow and a better LCD television came along I'd happily recommend it to people but the only competition going on there is usually at high end prices on the 50+ inch models.
As would I. Again, your barbed comment portrays me as someone unwilling to accept that better TVs exist / will come along, when I made an informed decision based upon direct comparison. I'm well aware that the brightness on LCD/LED TVs is cranked up and the colours are typically over-saturated to such a degree that you would never use them like that in an every-day situation. I have absolutely no loyalty to a particular technology - here I simply evaluated all the options and chose the models that I deemed to be the best from a quality perspective, not a value one. As soon as OLED / AMOLED displays cost a sensible amount, are available in a better selection and are readily accessible I will move over to them. But from personal experience with plasma I don't accept that they are better than LED.

I'm not trying to put you down or something but we're talking about a slightly broader scale than personal observation. Both LCD and plasma have their inherent limitations that personal opinion can't trump.
And here you go again, stating that my "personal opinion" is wrong because you say that plasma is better. Never mind that I've compared these monitors side-by-side - that the motion on plasma doesn't look as smooth, that the image isn't as sharp, that I tested different picture settings on the displays.

Honestly, I give up.
I'm sorry that I'm wrong.
I'm sorry that I paid more for a LED TV that is obviously inferior to a cheaper plasma one.
I'm sorry that I think the motion on plasma monitors isn't as smooth.
I'm sorry that I'm gullible and blindly bought into LED because it's brighter in store rooms.
I'm sorry that I chose the more energy efficient and dramatically lighter / slimeline LED technology.
Next time I'll buy the cheaper plasma technology and just tell people it's better.
