~*~ H.orus T.exture O.verhaul P.roject ~*~

Version: Final Version
Note: Version 0.1 and Version 0.2 are included here

by Horus

Introduction:
This project aims at redoing all textures in CotN at higher resolution levels, resulting in better visuals and sharper textures ingame. I paid much attention not to destroy the "look" of the game and to make this as realistic as possible.

As in version 0.2, in order to change the way the textures are bound to the models, you must copy the dbcopgraphics.dat to your game folder. Doing so, we can have a much greater diversity ingame, for example giving shops different canopys or having more diverse vegetation.

Please not, that "----> ALL DONE" doesn't always mean that every single textures has been changed, f.e. some terrain textures were good enough and didn't need any changes. It just means that the work of H.T.O.P is done there.
I recommend to try it together with the Post Process Injector or the enb series available on my blog to make the game look even better.

You have to copy the "data"-folder from the zip.archive to your Children of the Nile game directory (Override all files) as it is said in the readme.
It is recommended to make a backup first, in case you don't like the new look of the game and want to go back to original graphics.
