Absolute Nature Texture Pack for SoC (1.3) - File Description  


Description:
The goal of this texture pack is to improve overall sharpness and texture quality in the game. All areas have unique look and feel with slightly different foliage textures for each of them.

For example Yantar is completely dead area, Agroprom institute surroundings are lush and green. Red forest trees have the strange genetic mutation or disease that makes the them reddish. Dark valley is already touched by the same disease as Red Forest
with everything looking rotten.

FEATURES

This texture pack contains edited vanilla textures of ground and foliage. It also contains few textures from Argus texture pack.

All the textures in the pack has been sharpened. This include gradual sharpening of separate MIP map levels in every texture. The benefit is that the usually blurred MIP maps are still sharp as they fade into distance. This results in overall sharpness of the image.

Ground texture MIP maps has been edited manually to add more features visible in the distance.

This texture pack also includes new grass textures, sligtly different for each level to add some variety. It also contains new tree and bush textures.

There are 3 different texture resolution options:

  • default (the same resolution as vanilla)

  • high (tree and bush textures are 1024x1024 and grass texture resolution is doubled

  • ultra (tree and bush textures are 2048x2048 and grass texture resolution is doubled)

| INSTALLATION & COMPABILITY |
+--------------------------------------------------------------+

1) In case you haven't installed any mods before, locate file
"fsgame.ltx" in the main S.T.A.L.K.E.R. directory, open with
Notepad and change both variables in this line to "true":
$game_data$ = true | true | $fs_root$ | gamedata

2) Run Absolute Nature SoC Setup and follow the
instructions.

NOTE: This texture pack is intended to work with the highest
object detail setting. If you are using lowered object detail
setting you could spot the distinction in texture quality at
certain distance.

Mod can be incompatible with other mods that change 'level'
files in gamedatalevels* folders.
The mod also changes gamedatatexturestextures.ltx used in
many mods. This file is not necessary for this texture pack. The
only change is a bump mapping added to one type of trees.

Mod tested on xRay 1.00004.

+--------------------------------------------------------------+
| DEINSTALLATION |

This is just beautiful, the higher the Res the better that's what I say, can you make them even bigger ?

Anyway, 10/10 Two Thumbs Up!

Thank's for your hard work, much appreciated. Pimp!

Is it compatible with stalker complete? (complete does have "levels" folders) How can we merge absolute with SOC complete?

As far as I recall 'Complete' does have 'levels' folders but doesn't change individual 'level' files (without extension). However It changes textures.ltx. Install ANTP to different folder and copy it to 'complete' gamedata overwriting everything except textures.ltx (you will loose nice texture on those twisted trees in Radar but nothing else). Make backup of your gamedata before doing that just in case.

thanks, I'll try that some day. i'm trying Oblivion lost 2010 pack; I'm not sure what textures it uses, but with same shaders the OL2010 bricks (for example) seem more 3D (parallax??). (I tested, copied yours instead of theirs, took screenshots).
I understand that you mostly used vanilla textures?

I personally think that tis mod is one of the best texture overhaul mods (it loses only to "Argus Texture Pack" also known as "Photorealistic Zone". If somone downvoted this mod he had to be highly frustrated about how profesioanlly it was made while all he can do is some nasty oversaturaded textures wannabies.

Also about pervious question. I didn't had any trouble while using this pack with SC2009 1.4.4. I just installed it via provided installer (which as i belive alters all necessary files including "textures.ltx" wihout any problem.

I also use Kingos64s Stalekr Shaders Max which not only boosts games visuals and has barely no hit on or even improves FPS count.

Of courseyou shouldn't forget SC2009 Weapon Realism addon. it makes this game even mor entertaining.
