I don't see how anyone who isn't Bethesda could release a high-res texture pack, cos you'd need the original art assets. Unless the high-res textures were already in the game and this just unlocks them or something.

Or they made their own.

Make their own, and some of the results are outstanding.

Yeah I tried out the official one but the Skyrim HD 2K texture mod is waaaaayyy better.
the difference is only quite subtle when using the official one.

Skyrim Creation Kit and Kingdoms of Amalur come out about the same time - coincidence?
Obviously someone got their hands on SCK and created KOA :D

While I'm very busy and tired lately, too busy to go back to playing Skyrim, everything time I consider doing so I'm reminded how FPS just doesn't work for h2h combat, and how the combat system needed to be so much better.

Ubi got it right, but they missed the goal in Skyrim :(

I don't mind the first person view, but then I probably haven't played enough Skyrim yet to get sick of it, and I guess I'm mostly throwing fireballs and shooting arrows and only falling back on h2h as a last resort, so probably not noticing it as much.

I never got a chance to play Skyrim when it actually only came out, only really been getting into it this past week, which probably worked out well cos now theres a heap of mods out there that I installed before I started playing and its made the game even more awesome.
