HD Environment Mod

Postby jafergon » Fri Oct 18, 2013 5:34 pm

Hi,

Someone last week asked a question about realistic dawn and dusk colors and that gave me an idea. The sky and the sea are perhaps the most important elements in VSF and in my opinion they needed to be updated after 4 years. I'll released the mod next week in two versions, HD for modern computers and Lite for old systems. The main features of this mod are the use of high resolution environmental textures, a new color map file and a new water normal map that changes the look of the oceans. This change in the normal map makes the ocean look more realistic and less flat. These are the changes included in this mod:


-1024px 32 bits low cloud tectures.
-2048px 32 bits High cloud textures.
-New stars (realistic size)
-New 1024 moon texture.
-New 2048 water spray texture (for wakes and whitecaps)
-New effect textures for rain, hail, bow splash, smoke and snow.
-HD lightning textures.
-New water normal map
-New color_map_txt that changes all environment colors.
-New sun texture
-New environment sounds


I will also include a second set of files with low clouds textures and color map for extreme bad weather.

Javier
