So nobody has come up with a workaround? I think 'we' are the ones that are slacking by not figuring out a way to show high rez textures.

Unfortunatly its been locked down at the engine level according to some digging that was done.

Umm, considering how even the .ini files were removed to prevent modifications, I don't see how we could do much. This is reasonable and understandable, but, if they do remove any possibilities for the users for mod something, they should make sure their own work is good enough and needs no mods in the first place.

Using high res mods on Skyrim blows away any game I can think of.
People seem to forget the beauty of games with mods is that the static version of the game only improves with the mods. And the high-res textures in Skyrim make pretty much the best comparison I can think of for gaming, bar none.
Relabeling future patches as Expansions, just like EA Louse said a year ago. Who got the last laugh?

I am not even asking for Hi Rez textures to be implemented. Just an explanation of WHY they are not but being advertised / marketed with them.

A simple statement of " hi rez textures make the client unstable, we are looking into it" or something along those lines will do for most people.

I guess I will add that to my sub cancelation question form.

Speak for yourself.
I'm having loads of fun in this game, so quitting over this not being resolved 3 weeks after the game launched is not an option for me.
I would love to have it fixed as soon as possible of course.
