In Steam go to Library -> Tools, it is listed as Creation Kit.

High res textures is available at Skyrim's Steam page (link)

HRT Pack is taking forever, I usually get around 5-7 mb/s but I'm only getting 2 mb/s right now.

I watched the first two Creation Kit videos and although I've never modded a game, the Kit looks extremely intuitive and user-friendly so far. I can't wait to see what people come up with and hope the variety of Steam's mods rival Skyrim Nexus.

Has anyone seen any examples of the high res pack in action?

God, why couldn't they just have the high res textures available in the first place?

Because it ran like shit and only used the first 2gb of ram. They fixed these issues in the last patch, then released this.

Let it begin...

And by "it," I mean both the crazy awesome modding made easier, and the 3 gig download for better textures.

Just when I thought I was done with Skyrim for awhile...

Here is a comparison.

''Also, since Skyrim was the only major release of 2011 without Nolan North in it, you should consider this mod a patch to fix that problem. You can now feel free to include Skyrim in the "Nolan North" section of your video game library, which is to say, your video game library.''
 
That was genuinely funny

Yup I certainly got a kick out of it too. Now excuse me while I try to break my game with some proper(-)ass mods!

Not saying that pre-creation kit stuff was bad, but now shit is for real, yo. I wonder how long it will take for a crazy person to do Morrowind.

It didn't hurt my performance. As long as you have a reasonable modern graphic card with at least 1GB VRAM it will probably run fine.

Change the server you connect to for downloading in the Steam options to a server in a timezone where they would be sleeping right now. For example, Russia.

Technically you're getting slower peak speeds vs a closer server, but with their server being mostly inactive currently, you get near max speeds instead of crappy speeds on our servers during peak hours.

GUYS.

The space core has unique lines specifically made for Skyrim...I won't spoil anything, just go download it NOW.

The High Res Texture pack is messing with some of my installed mods, like the weapons retexture pack, it's like the HRT Pack is overwriting thos files

That is expected and completely normal. Uninstall the weapon texture mod and wait for the dev to fix the compatibility.

Valve also acknowledges the lack of Nolan North in Skyrim as a problem:

To celebrate the opening of the Steam Workshop for Skyrim, Valve and Bethesda have teamed up to bring you the Portal 2 Space Core mod, which will let the aggressively space-centric little robot tag along on your adventures in Tamriel.
Also, since Skyrim was the only major release of 2011 without Nolan North in it, you should consider this mod a patch to fix that problem. You can now feel free to include Skyrim in the "Nolan North" section of your video game library, which is to say, your video game library.

Crap I ordered a physical copy of Skyrim cause it was $20 cheaper than on steam. But now I have to wait a week to play Skyrim with Nolan North in it. Damn you cruel world.

@gike987: It's surprising how bad they looked before.
