4k texture mods are more and more numerous on the Nexus.
But can we consider that 4k is a viable option for FNV? Is the old engine powerful enough to manage such a modification, even with the 4gb Patcher installed and a pretty good machine?
Answer me GUN.

I think the answer is no. Sorry, but game engine is just to old, and it will crash every 10-30 min.

The engine and skeletons should be the first thing to revise in FNV, before textures or anything else in my opinion. And honestly what a bunch of work!

The more textures you'll load, the heaviest 4k will simply saturate the memory faster and the game will crash or freeze. If you're lucky, (that's what is happening with Skyrim), you'll see some purple models in the environment, which means the textures are loaded sporadicly). So that's not a good idea to use such so big textures packs unless you perfectly know what you're doing and have clearly optimized your game at 100 % Wink

I was getting out of memory errors even with the 4gb patch and plenty of ram. From googling I finally found out that there's an ini setting, heap something I think, that gets overloaded, no matter your ram or the patch. You can raise it up in the ini, but only so far. I forget where the info online was...

Any re-textures that are out currently, are the best it's going to get so far as in optimization, the limitations of FNV make 4k an optimized piece of gameplay. An ENB and this pair very well, and remember, better *graphics* don't make the game a hundred times more enjoyable, but that's just my opinion. I'd rather save the space for an upcoming mod- *cough* *cough* Frontier- *cough* *cough* *cough*.
