Earlier this month, modder ‘Kuzja80’ released a brand new version of his AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This pack uses AI techniques in order to enhance almost all of the textures of this classic TES game.
According to the modder, this latest version brings a new quality level to the game by improving the quality details of textures. It also packs a number of optimization techniques, and removes the pixel grain effect. Additionally, it fixes the left bottom corner pixel buffer, as well as issues with “medium settings normal maps artifacts.”
As Kuzja80 noted, this pack corrects the upscaled alpha channels and upscaled normal maps (no heights issues). This is an issue that apparently affected other HD Texture Packs for Oblivion. Moreover, it features real 4X normal maps. However, this pack does not upscale the game’s small 64×64 textures.
You can download the mod from here. Below you can also find some screenshots showcasing these overhauled textures.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
