As you can see in the video below, the mod gives textures increased detail and sharpness, which also scale up to 4K resolution, with many of the high quality meshes being created from scratch. There's even an option to enable "E3 Novigrad Walls"! Don't mention the downgrade, don't mention the downgrade.
