Lost Alpha is a new episode of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series made by dezowave group for free!
Here is a short presentation video about the redesigned vegetation in Lost Alpha project. It wasn't an easy decision to remake all the vegetation at this stage of the development. We had to redesign many old models, or completely replace them, because no matter how cool they were, due to the boxy design and uv texturing errors, they simply were not acceptable for modern day standards... We tried to keep the old design as much as possible, but as you see, we enhanced not only the vegetation models, but the general objects, such as buildings, and small props. When we say "enhance" it does not mean we simply exchanged texture on them, but mostly remade the whole model. It wasn't simple and easy, but every single bit worth the time we put in it.
This video is part of an article, which you can read on our moddb blog, and main site:
P.S.: The new render is still w.i.p., so you might see strange things.
