Default Re: Oblivion Fans - Qarl's Texture Pack III out!

WOW they look stunning - I would love to try them, but my 7600gt would say (if it could talk) 'your having a laugh'.

So what is a realistic minimum for this mod?..

A 512Mb video card would be a minimum IMO.

I don't know how well it'd run with less, but I'm guessing somewhere between "unplayable" and "not too good".

These textures MURDERED my framerate big time. It actually cut it in half outdoors but its fine indoors. Of course those with the fancy 8800 cards shouldn't have an issue.

Post Re: Oblivion Fans - Qarl's Texture Pack III out!

Fileplanet has 2 public servers on the west coast hosting this mod. I'm downloading @ 750kbs at the moment.

Hopefully my 7900GTX can hold it own with this texture pack. I only have the LOD texture mod installed.

I'll post if my video card decides to commit seppuku while running this texture pack.

ZOMG! They look good.

So if I have already downloaded a heap of texture packs, can I just apply these over the top? It'll just overwrite the mods of 'lesser' quality?

For the most part, yes. But read the readme file first. It mentions that some previous texture packs that used parallax maps had some meshes that didn't need to be there and actually cause some glitches. You'll probably want to delete the folders it mentions before installing the new pack.

That said, be warned... it definitely hurt my framerate going from the previous Qarl texture pack with parallax mapping.

Have no phear! I have an XFX!

It's at least equal to or about the same performance as your eVGA.

Downloading now... this thing is friggin huge... btw... can anybody point me in the direction of a decent mod for facial textures? I found one that looked pretty nice... but can't get the download to work (is corrupted)... I am going to replay through Oblivion again, but I can't stand the default faces at all.
