High Resolution Texture Pack (Free DLC)
I can't seem to get the texture pack downloaded onto my computer. It says "You already own Skyrim: High Resolution Texture Pack (Free DLC)" but does not have a download button anywhere. I've checked my "data files" and it's not there, as well as looking around steam to find a way to re-install it. Is there something I'm missing? I can't get it to work.

Right click on Skyrim in your library , open properties, and check the DLC tab if they are active.

It says it's there and installed. Does that mean it's active? I see my dragonborn DLC in the data files but no texture pack.

Have you waited for everything to download before you open the Data Folder in the launcher ?

It doesn't say it's downloading anything

Have you tried verifing game cache? ( if you do verify, ignore the "1 file missing" )

The High Resolution Pack is shown in your DLC-tab as installed. But is it also ticked on ? That will set it to install into your game, otherwise it is just installed on your computer.

It's installed and ticked. Even after waiting a while I don't see it in the files

In the DATA section of the spalsh screen are they there and ticked as well?

You can also look in the C\programfiles\steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\data to see if they are there.

Grimus, I've looked and waited and looked, but it won't show up there.

Grathagis, I've looked there. I think what you are referring to is "Skyrim - Animations," "Skyrim - Interface," "Skyrim - Meshes," "Skyrim - Misc," "Skyrim - Shaders," etc. I'm not sure if that's what you are talking about, but if it is, they are there.

I suggest not using the Official Bethesda Hi res texture pack and use the optimized mod version of the same texture pack instead. It uses the same textures, but they have been optimized. Some of the textures have been downsized to 1024 for performance, which are still twice the size of vanilla textures.

You can find it here if interested.

This mod version also allows you to use a full downsized 1024 version if your machine can't handle the 2K version.

If you have the DLCs ticked in the library, properties, DLC tab and the DATA section of the splash screen doesn't list them then I would try verifing game cache and see if that will trigger the download. (If you already haven't already tried this.)

Next I would try: (leave deleted files in Recycle bin in case you need to restore them, just to be extra safe.)
- Exit Steam.
- Go to your Steam folder, usually C:\Program Files (x86).
- Delete the folder named "appcache"
- Delete the files Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini. from Users>(user name)>My Documents>My Games>Skyrim folder. Depending on your folder options the extensions might not be visible.
- Restart computer and Steam.
- Verify game cache, ignore the "1 file missing" message.
- If you have made any changes to your .ini files you'll have to redo those changes.

In the Datafolder there should be a HighResTexturePack01, 02 and 03 , and their bsa files.

+1

Install this one instead of the official one,

then install Skyrim HD - 2K Textures [www.nexusmods.com].

Lite 2k files are far enough, use 4k only if you have a very high end conf.
