Botw HD Textures

Breath of the wild has been released for over 2 years and the game looks beautiful today. However, the textures are anything but contemporary. Many have a low resolution and I find that they look very mushy especially nearby. Currently there are very good upscaling algorithms that not only smooth pixels, but also add details. This may make it easier to create multiple high-resolution textures without changing the style. Would someone take care of this project?

    According to my research botw is reluctant to accept higher resolution textures. That means its not impossible but its definitely not that urgent for modding community imho

    it's certainly doable but I wouldn't expect any 4K ultraresolution texture packs any time soon. It's tough to add higher resolution textures to sbfres files because it requires a bit of hex editing on a file-by-file basis. Luckily we have BCML now so the RSTB entries can be updated dynamically.

    2x resolution using ESRGAN or something similar should be feasible.
    I like puppies.
