Skyrim: Hi res texture pack (free dlc) removal

Hey, i recently downloaded the hi res texture pack and noticed it took 3gb of my harddrive, to me that is not alot but im really picky about memory on things im not using and as i feel that 3gb isnt really worth what was offered i was wondering if i could remove the dlc completly, not just disable it, like a way to stop steam from downloading 3gb everytime i delete the files?

Probably not. As DLC it is now part of your download entirely.

TBH tht method should be changed for free misc things like texture packs, as ppl may not want to always use tht texture pack compared to a dlc like dead island where its part of the story, the dlc for dead island doesnt force you to play the dlc only which this dlc is sorta doing if u know what i mean

As said above, delete the files and turn off automatic updates for Skyrim.

You can uncheck it from the launcher according to the giant thread on the high res pack.

This solution worked for me in the short term, but I haven't allowed Steam to be online since I used the Skyrim launcher to delete the files. I'm afraid it may "helpfully" {ahem} reload the files for me. That would be unfortunate, as the HD Tex Pack causes nearly-instant, repeatable game crashes for me. I met all the system requirements, including "latest NVidia driver version", but I just barely met a couple, and it appears my system is just a little short of being able to do the tex pack reliably.

Here's hoping Steam will give us a way to back out of the DLC. I want updates but I don't want the HD texture pack.

Shouldn't have been DLC in the first place, should have been a steam workshop mod.

Agreed.

I DLed this, but I don't use it since it crashes my game every time.

They don't use 3 GB memory, they take up hard drive space.
