Need Vanilla Textures
So I use skyrim mods alot, probably too much. I downloaded th 2K landscape textures a while back and I have now decided that the performance loss is not worth it, however the mod has decided to go all incognito on me and I cannot locate it in my mod lists or load order, I think this is because it has overwritten my vanilla textures.

So what I actually need from anyone who has the time, is to upload your texture folder from the data folder in the skyrim directory and upload it to google drive on public and send me a link. PLEASE DO NOT HAVE ANY TEXTURE MODS IN HERE or itll break my game. I understand most people will probably have texture mods of some kind but if you dont or have access to vanilla textures then please upload them, thanks.

1. Do not ask others to copy and share copyrighted content.

2. They are not in your load order, because they do not have ESP or ESM files. This is why we use mod managers like Nexus Mod Manager or Mod Organizer to install and remove files.

3. It is not possible for properly installed mods to overwrite anything. They are using Data folder that overrides the original content, without writing over the original content.

Search your ...SteamApps\Common\Data for .dds files. Those would be 2K textures files. They are stored in landscape and lod folders under textures folder.

Sorry, didnt think about copyrighted content being publically online.

I did use Mod organizer to install it and its just gone from there.

Also, I didnt realise that all the .dds was the mod files so thanks very much for solving my problem.

you never overwrite vanilla textures,they are stored in textures.bsa.
Skyrim just loads loose files 1st

For future reference, here's a list of files.

If you are having trouble with performance with 2K textures try this mod:

This is an optimized version of Bethesdas Hi Res Texture pack. You can also choose to use a 1024 version which will look better than vanilla, but not cause such a big performance hit.

Now that this is settled, there are - Omgwtfbbqkitten mentioned - ways to get more out of your computer. I am running the game with GTX 660 and 2K HD textures proved too much, for my rig and script heavy game.

I used MO (like you) and advices from this article to increase my game stability and get more out of my computer. Now I am running the game with 2K HD Lite textures and still with script heavy mod environment.

Have fun. :)

Delete your Textures folder. Then reinstall whatever textures you want. Some texture files do come with an .esp though so watch out for those. Probaby best to rename the textures folder first rather than delete until you've found them all.

Vanillla Skryim textures are all in the "Skyrim - Textures.bsa" file.

Actually, your default textures are stored in Textures.bsa. So what you have in the textures folder are overrides. So just delete the textures.

This was quite a while ago Spartanairsoft99, I have since gotten a new pc and have a very efficient way of modding the game using mod organizer. Although I very much appreciate you coming back almost a year to find this post :P
