Default Re: Skyrim graphics

Typically I'm not a big fan of texture packs. Developers put a lot of time into making sure each given texture will look good in every place and location it's used in, and I've found in the past once textures are replace they can look out of place in certain areas. One of the Skyrim examples I saw changed some of the rocky ground textures from a near black dark gray to a light brown color, and when I see textures making big changes to color and appearance I avoid them for the reasons above. I like to preserve the original art style. Some of the textures are looking pretty good though.
