Modder ‘PraedythXVI’ has released an 8K Texture Pack for both Skyrim LE and Skyrim Special Edition that completely overhauls Castle Volkihar. As with most HD Texture Packs, this is a must-have for all Skyrim players.
Going into more details, Castle Volkihar HD’s roof has its own textures instead of using sky haven temple textures. The bridge also has its own textures instead of using imperial dungeon textures. Furthermore, the modder has re-textured the moondial and crests. Additionally, the glowing parts of each crest now use multi-layer parallax and glow.
It’s also worth noting that this HD Texture Pack comes in 1K, 2K and 4K versions. Thus, these packs will be perfect for those that can’t run the 8K version.
Speaking of Skyrim LE, you should be able to use it with this HD Texture Pack that overhauls all of the landscape textures. It should also work with the next-gen pseudo 3D world map mod. Similarly for Skyrim Special Edition, it should be compatible with the pack that overhauls all armors, actors & clutter. It should also work with the Dynamic Volumetric Lighting and Sun Shadows mod or with this mod that overhauls the textures of virtually all towns.
Below you can find some screenshots that showcase the new 8K 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.
