A 4K texture, does not require a 4K monitor. In short, the graphics pipeline for getting "pretty pictures" on a screen is, with some hand-waving to simplify things: You have a 3D model, that looks like a thing - e.g. "a tree" You have a texture, which is just a 2D image of colors The texture is mapped to the model, such that each point on the surface of ...

Alright, first you need to pick a starting location. Go here: www.uesp.net choose a location there, and copy the code to the location. This'll be your starting area. Eg, Valthume. Good alternate start as an adventurer who wandered in there for treasure. Now open Skyrim.ini (NOT SKYRIMPREFS!!!), this is usually here - C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\My ...

Yes. There are mods to completely remove Endermen and others that disable their ability to pick up blocks.

I can't comment as I do not have the necessary reputation, but I wanted to add on to Bilkokuya's excellent answer. Two of the main important factors regarding whether you can see a difference with higher-resolution textures is both your distance from the object (which Mixxiphoid pointed out), as well as the size of the object. IOW, how much area that ...

There's a built-in server command to stop the picking-up blocks portion. Type this in the server window, if you're running the server: gamerule mobGriefing false Or type this in the game chat window, if you're an op (or single-player, I believe): /gamerule mobGriefing false This will also stop Creeper explosions from damaging blocks. However, this ...

It is a Flux Rift, and part of the Thaumcraft mod: The Flux Rift is an immobile entity added by Thaumcraft 6. It spawns when Flux in the local chunk's aura exceeds 75% of the chunk's Vis cap. Flux Rifts are a source of Void Seeds, Primordial Pearls, and Taint. Be sure to move away from it, because Every 30 seconds, the rift will drain some Flux ...

There's a (free) mod called Live Another Life which gives you a number of starting options - one of which is to start as a bandit. This sounds like it'll be exactly what you are looking for. From the mod's readme: Outlaw in the Wilds You will begin as a member of a group of bandits. For the sake of variety, the group of bandits will be chosen at ...

To paraphrase Martin Sojka: No. The reason is that, unlike what Timelord suggested, minecraft mods don't alter assets. Most mods for games take the existing level data, or textures, or data files and change them in small ways. Minecraft mods on the other hand are entire pieces of new code that are run in the game, and while a game developer will keep the ...

If you installed the mod via NMM, simply deactivating it in the NMM interface should already restore the original file. NMM never deletes or overwrites existing files without backing them up first. If that is not the case, you - somehow - overwrote the existing file permanently, resulting in it being lost. However, if you run the game on steam, you can ...

To my knowledge there are no mods like this at all, and if there were any they would not be up to date with the 1.8 prereleases/snapshots. However there are a couple of tips to making easier use of the commands: Hitting Tab will automatically fill out the coordinates of the block you are looking at. This is a much faster way of filling out coordinates than ...

Short answer - no PS3 has a completely different hardware, different cpu architecture, different everything. Theoretically, you could emulate the PS3 hardware, but you would need an insane PC from the future and you'd also have to code the emulator, because no one in their right mind is going to bother with that in the nearest 10+ years. It's the reason ...

The problem is that Mojang changed the download locations for their files, and with the whole Forge team preparing for the 1.7.X version launch, they aren't able or willing to touch the "stable" 1.6.4 one. The fix involves editing your fml/fml.py file (located in the same folder as the install.cmd or install.sh file you're using to set it up). In line 1149,...

Yes, you can (even CS:S maps)! Downloading the appropriate files from here (click on 'Garry Content') as shown in this video will work (He'll show you where to place the files). It's just textures (and maps, if you need it) for use as an addon to Garry's Mod. This is completely legal because there is another [more complicated] method listed on the ...

No, the mods made for 32-bit Skyrim (original) will not work for the 64-bit Skyrim Special Edition. See here: Skyrim Special Edition makes the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit, rendering the original mods useless. Another issue is that there is no Script Extender for Skyrim SE at the moment, but it is currently being worked on. It's also worth noting that ...

I was having trouble since I had G&K but I solved it. I had to update a MainMenu.lua file in a different location than the one given above. Try to one at Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/sid meier civilization v/Civilization V : Gods & Kings/Contents/Home/assets/DLC/Expansion/UI/FrontEnd/MainMenu.lua When you get to the ...

No, Blizzard said they have no official support for modifying the game, and doing that yourself is against the Terms of Service and could lead to your account getting removed. In addition, because of the client-server nature of the game, there is a severe limitation on what one can change anyway.

This was a trick he did, he's simply hollowed out the area behind the portal and filled it with netherrack. If you watch the entirety of the clip you see a creeper spawn in the area, as it is still part of the overworld.

There isn't much to it really. Go into the multiplayer menu. (pro-tip, the master authorization server was taken down, so add the following two entries into your hosts file "/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts" 0.0.0.0 nw2master.bioware.com 0.0.0.0 nwn2.master.gamespy.com and instead of waiting 2 minutes for the time out, it will time out ...

I ran into this problem today, and I've come up with a few solutions. The root cause is that the default folder that Nexus Mod Manager wants to install into is not typically writable by normal users. They want you to install into a subfolder of C:\, and if you don't have administrator rights, chances are you can't create the "Games" folder you need (C:\...

Planets and moons are "on rails". You can not affect them or their orbits with the physics engine. However, you can change their orbits with the mod Hyperedit. You can also use this to put two planets on a collision course, but the result won't be what you would expect. The game engine is not designed to handle planetary collisions. The planets will just ...

The white diamond means that the game thinks this is the best item you own for it's slot (for armor this tends to be the item with the highest armor value). The yellow star is as you already figured out that you have the item favorited. The blue lightning bolt means it has some enchantment on it. As @gatherer818 mentioned there is also the possibility of a ...

This can be edited, but you don't need a mod to do so. This story can be found in a text file, found in assets/minecraft/texts/end.txt. Using a resource pack can change the appearance of it, but as far as I am aware, you can change the text to whatever you want simply by re-writing the file. The Technical Details on the wiki have a bit more information ...

Just use an energy condenser, and it will turn quite literally anything put into it into whatever is in the top left slot, including wood.

I recently got a copy on Steam and installed a Fallout FIXT mod (NMA thread). To my taste, it includes all I wanted, most notably: Crash fixes; Wasteland Ghost's Fallout 1 Restoration Project - adds content originally disabled/unfinished in F1; High resolution patch; sfall, a way to control game speed and use mouse wheel in inventory (sic!). Yes, once there ...

is there any Total Conversion that allows one to play the first two parts with the newest engine? No there isn't. However there are some patches/mods that can improve the old engine Thief 1 and 2 are using. The patches will improve some models and textures, increase the resolution and more. DDfix: patch (created by TimeSlip and updated by jermi) to allow ...

No. There's an important distinction between Multiplayer mods and Craftbukkit plugins. All SMP mods are automatically compatible with Singleplayer Minecraft and are installed in the same way, but Bukkit plugins are designed specifically for the custom server called Craftbukkit. Minecraft can only launch its own built-in server, so there's no way (I know of) ...

No, there is no way to use the Skyrim launcher to run SKSE. You can make a shortcut to skse_loader.exe to run it more conveniently.

NEI can be set to Recipe Mode. And if you think you'll still be too tempted to switch to cheat mode, open the file %appdata%\.minecraft\config\NEI.cfg and modify the following setting: lockmode=0 This will make it impossible to switch to another mode ingame. If you consider the ability to delete items (instead of having to burn them) no cheating, you ...

The most official list of mods you can get is maintained on the Minecraft forums in the Mods subforum, in the first pinned topic. The nice thing about using the forums is that you're going directly to the source – these forums are where the mod developers release their mods, so you're always sure to have the most up-to-date version publicly available ...
