Fallout 4 AI-Enhanced NeuraLOD Texture Pack Improves Level of Detail
A new Fallout 4 texture pack has been released recently, improving the game’s visual quality considerably.
The new Fallout 4 texture pack is an AI-enhanced texture pack called NeuraLOD. It introduces a big number of new textures which improve the level of detail of objects considerably with almost no impact on performance.
Fallout 4 NeuraLOD uses machine learning to upscale and enhance vanilla LOD so surface details “pop” better, increasing perceived fidelity of faraway objects (not landscape).
There are 2 versions:
- Main file – provides regenerated LOD for Fallout 4 Far Harbor, Nuka World and the Commonwealth with much higher texture resolution (8192×4096 atlas files replacing a 4096×2048 vanilla atlas). If you are using any mod that ships LOD itself (Greenery mods, landscape changes and so on) this is probably not the file for you. You want to regenerate LOD in this case.
- Resource file – provides only the upscaled LOD textures to fuel your own run of FO4LODGen with higher-quality assets. Read how to generate object LOD here.
Vanilla object LOD textures are mostly 256×256 in size. Fallout 4 NeuraLOD uses a neural network (which was trained to upscale photography) to upscale and denoise these files to 512×512 and then runs them through a pass of light sharpen filters for added crispiness.
Performance impact is not measurable on a GTX 980 (4GB). The VRAM usage increase should be around 50-100 MByte so if your system has less than 4 GB this is probably not for you.
You can download the new Fallout 4 texture pack by heading over to Nexus Mods.
Fallout 4 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in all regions.
