Submod: Wook's Warband 2016 (Modern Graphics Overhaul)
« on: August 23, 2016, 11:36:15 PM »
Hey all,

This is a project I've been working on for a long time. This pack changes the textures of Warband, nothing PoP related, except the banners. However, it is designed to be used with PoP. The outdoor environment and all the interior design have been upgraded, as well as mundane things like clothing, walls, all the ground textures, flora, weapons, effects, and so on, down to the gritty details. I made a new world map with more realistic colors and contrast, a banner pack that's a bit different, and a lot of sky variety. I was tired of how dated the base game looked and decided to fix everything I could to modernize it. The Warband engine definitely has its limits though. Overall I wanted everything to look like it fit together in a cohesive theme, with rich and vibrant colors, while maintaining realism. Read the read-me in the folders and copy/paste the files. If you need help feel free to ask. It shouldn't affect performance very much on decent computers. However, if you are able to, it is much better to uncheck "load textures on demand" in the warband options. This is a very large texture pack and it will run more smoothly this way.

Make sure you back up your folders, in case of error. For those that are just upgrading the pack, just add the texture folders, everything else remains the same.
I will update the pack roughly once a week.
 
Updated: 10/13/16

- Continually adding more variety for all textures possible, and more accurately depending on conditions

Maybe a few FPS. However it will increase loading times. I would highly recommend disabling 'load textures on demand.' The initial wait to load the mod will be longer, but you will save much more time overall and with much less lag.

Very nice! You pimped my game. Although... the night sky seems way too bright. I love everything else though.

Looks great but it turned my qualis gems into green lettuces, there might be a few kinks to work out.

I have a bunch of strange white bushes in my game. On the overworld map it looks like every tree has a white fence inside it.

Fixed this issue. Hootman's submod is using different trees for the world map, mine is using standard. You can either use my module, or edit these lines in your module.ini :
"load_mod_resource = map_tree_meshes" to "load_resource = map_tree_meshes"

I had the same thing happen.  I think I overlaid Wook's changes on HootMan's polished landscapes.  I never really got to the bottom of it before moving on to something else.
