"K-9 Vision: Zone Artifacts" addresses an oft-overlooked aspect of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. modding. Specifically, it is a high-rez modifaction of all artifacts and related particle effects in CoP. If it is a texture relating to an artifact, it has been redone. Please note - this mod does not affect artifact behavior, spawn locations, or stats.
Since the initial mod announcement, six artifacts have been added and finalized. See below for a complete changelog:
1) Artifact "Stone Blood" - texture has been completely redone since the initial announcement. Old screenshots have been replaced with new ones to reflect the changes
2) Added Artifacts - "Moonlight", "Mama's Beads", "Goldfish", "Crystal", "Compass", "Bubble"
3) Particle Effects - a complete overhaul of all textures is now underway (videos may be added at a later time to better show the new effects)
Please see the Image Gallery for further details. Screenshots include close-up versions so you can see the new level of detail for each artifact.
