Further proof that Italians have suspect taste in games.

It's a HD texture pack for future generations, or something :P. Can't wait to test it out when I'll buy a brand new GTX 2080.

Or, alternatively, I'll wait for Cyberpunk 2077 :P

Oh I am so pissed off. Yes I know the game has been out forever, but I just started playing three days ago, and this is a mandatory Steam download. 55 gigs is a week on my connection.

And yes, I know I can trick it into playing without the update, but still pissed off.

It's mandatory ?  I had to fuck about to get it loaded....

But I have to say, if you're right then that's UBER shite.  Really, really bad idea there.

Mine has finished downloading, but that's gotta be up there in 'record size of patch'.  And I've been gaming now since the dawn of time.

Hell I don't know for sure, I didn't click on the update, since doing so typically screws up being able to play at all until it completes. Right now I can go to offline mode and play, or (probably) do a direct link to the executable. Of course, that hoses Steam achievements. Not that I care. Unless I'm blocked from getting them.

But maybe the update is just to provide the "stub" for the larger optional texture download.

Anybody know?

Oh, and the damn game looks great streamed to my 60 inch TV right now -- just how big a screen do people have to require this?

Or are we planning for VR here?

Update: Okay, crisis averted I was freaking out about nothing. The HD pack is a DLC, as it should be. The mandatory update is fairly small.

It runs fine with my Nvidia 970.  Some (just some) of the textures are noticeably better but most of it looks just the same unless you have some sort of super alien eagle eyes.  It's not really worth the space it takes up if you're short in that department.

Agreed.  I recently upgraded so I can run this, but as to noticeable differences ?  Meh.

Avoid it.

It's not mandatory, it's basically a free DLC, so just untick it's box and it won't download.

Posts I've seen say it runs fine on a 970, and looking at pics of it the differences with/without it are noticable, but not amazing. There's some screenshots and discussions in this thread.

Word of mouth is that the listed requirement of a 1080 is a bunch of baloney and it runs just fine on older cards like a 970.

Good to hear, I'll probably check it out - I admit some of the overly smudgy textures in the game do bug me. Yay unlimited data.

Tried out a new mod last night - working Motorcycle. It's pretty rough around the edges, but something that Survival mode has needed.

Working animations, your companion rides on the back. Can make a Sidecar for Dogmeat. Ran in to a bug where Piper would strip before getting on... Yeah.

Currently number 3 for Mods of the Month on Nexus.
