In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.
The goal of this texture pack is to improve visual quality. 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 trees reddish. Dark valley is already touched by the same disease as Red Forest with everything looking rotten.
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.
The pack also includes new grass, tree and bush textures, sligtly different for each level to add some variety.
There are 3 different texture resolution options:
