Hey Killaine, I think we narrowed it down! I will defenitely rework the pack with a "lite" version, so this issue will be hopefully solved with that! Thanks so much for the feedback and support!

Hey Killaine, thanks so much for your feedback regarding this issue, it's highly appreciated! I'm thinking maybe it is a problem with windows 32bit and in that case the engine not being able to adress enough RAM/VRAM or so so that some of the textures don't show up properly? Do zou have a 32bit or 64bit system? (I've got 64bit) Cheers!
oh and checking with the other mods did not cause prblems for me...

Another question - how much video-RAM do you have on your graphics-card?

Mr.Zz Nov 13 2014, 8:51pm replied:

Oh, but they are compressed although I have to keep some balance between best possible quality and compression (artifacting etc.)
Also the biggest environment textures in the game (Hoths Snowy-ground-textures and the canyon-wall-textures on Chandrilla) were 2048x2048 in the first place and looked horrible. So yeah to get them to look ok I had to replace them with such large versions.
And I thought about possible Engine-limitations too, so you have a point there. Strangely enough on my PC everything works fine, but I will create a "light" pack with reduced texture-sizes (stil better thatn the original of course) for those who have the same problems as you do!

It's really strange, missing textures in the outdoor regions is the only error with my pack, I'm still trying to figur out the reason for that - probably texturesize of more than 8000px x 8000px often Hoth and Taspir...

I always like to be close to textures, so that's no problem for me ;)
No, seriously thanks for the feedback, the tiling is always a big problem.
Sadly, if you stick much more detail on the same spot, tiling will be more obvious from far away because all of it gets repeated just a few steps next to it, but that's nothing i can change really - it's determined by the level itself and how it was textured originally - I only replace the textures and although I always triple check and repaint them to not have such obvious tiling it always occurs from far away since the engine doesn't support mipmapping... *sigh*

But I am a bit confused, did you refer to the pics in this news post or the ones in the gallery?

Cheers!

Ok, interesting... how much RAM does your graphics card have? maybe some of the textures were too big for the card... on my PC everything works fine.

Do you have any other mods installed which may override this one? you could try to add a "z" infront of the name of the .pk3 file. You did not exrtract the pk3 file, right? that would probably cause problems... just unpack the downloaded file so you get the .pk3 and dump that in 'your driv's name'\Program FIles\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base
Do you have the Jedi Academy update 1.01 installed?

Actually you are the first one I know of who has a problem with missing textures ingame... let's see. Do you have any other mods installed on your game? which are those? and do you have gtk radiant installed? when i had gtk radiant installed a texture on vjun went missing. i deinstalled gtk radiant and it was there again... strange. Does anybody else have Problems with the mod?

Well it took me about 10 hours to do that one level which has the smallest map in the whole game... I mean I had to figure some thing out and now the workflow will be better but yeah you are probably right.

I made a new Kyle version, hope you like it. The leg are nearly the same, I like them that way but the torso arms and head don't have that over-exposure any more.

well of course you guys are right in one thing: the textures are not real hdri images but i made an over-exposed version aswell as an under-exposed one of each image and combining these three created "sort-of-hdri" images. This creates an impression of a higher contrast range overall which in-game lets the lets the textures seem more real, it creates the illusion of depth. @Xav: thanks for your comment on Kyle I did not realize those mistakes, will do an update on that.
@TK-962/Syko: Do you think it does make everything looking worse or do you have a special texture you dislike?
Thanks for your comments guys, feedback is motivating!
