Enable HD Campaign Map Textures

With the new visual effects Rome 2 looks better than ever, but for some reason the textures of the campaign map are very simple and look somewhat old.
I have been using this mod with the new patch, and even though it says "obsolete" it works fine, and campaign map textures look AMAZING. The game looks a lot better now, and I was wondering if it would be possible to add these textures to the game by default or as a graphic option, with no need of using a mod.

You can see the difference here:

    If you ask me, this looks like the textures that are used in Attila.

    Agreed. First thought that I had when I first looked at the pics.

    I. Attila
    II. Rome II
    III. Napoleon

    They are indeed from Attila

    Summary:
    -Newer HD terrain textures
    -Attila environmental lighting for the campaign (easier on the eyes)
    -Attila Skybox (only noticable when you zoom in and look at the horizon)

    No chance for such a change in this update, I'm afraid.

    I guess I am the only one who doesn't really like what this update did to how the game looks now. I don't really have the best computer, but until now I was able to run R2 on medium settings with decent frame rates and it still looked fairly OK. But now it looks crappy AF, with textures not loading properly on campaign map or on the battlefield, much like with the Attila. Is there any way to turn this new "feature" off or to at least make the game look like before?

    While I am asking the coders about stuff. You can no longer load hi resolution textures mods,, fps goes down to 5 execept in a few areas where fps is smooth. Seems liike a texture streaming thing, that the program is being allowed to load all the hires textures into VRAM. Pl ease ask?

    Thanks in advance
