To improve and expand on the first Photo Realistic Zone, my version, PRZ2 aims to cover the whole spectrum instead of structures and creatures. Each and every texture will be individually edited, not only sharpening them, but also improving their bumb and specular maps and creating whole new, higher resolution textures.

Introduction:

Hello fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S...

I want to take a moment of your precious hunting time to introduce my newest project, Photo Realistic Zone². Many of you know the original mod, made by Argus, and consisted of the "Structures" pack and the "Creatures" pack. I took both of these textures packs, with some other high resolution textures from Cromm Cruac and merged them all together, as a base for my mod.

 Now, I didn't take the textures from various packs, merged them and took credit for them. I followed various texturing tutorials,  recognizing different materials, usability of photo's, making my own  textures with various other textures, making seamless textures etc. etc.  I've come a far way, from making my very first weapon skins to my latest works.

    Some other tutorials I followed...

 "There is a lot more to texturing than you  think. You need to have a  keen  eye for shapes and design, you need to  know traditional art  theory, you  need to be great at observing and  picking apart things, and  you need to  know how to balance your shapes,  among many other skills." - racer455
 
So with that in mind, I'd like to welcome you to my newest  project, old followers, newcomers, everyone. Please, be sure to leave as  much feedback as possible so I can imrpove even more. I need you guys  in order to make a balanced texture pack, because I am sure most of you  guys wont agree on every new texture I make.

 So again, welcome both old and new, to the Photo Realistic Zone²

 Cheers,
 [TZP]LoNer1


Compatability:


Should be compatible with every mod.


Installation Procedure 1:

If you already have a gamedata installed, follow step 2. If not, follow step 1 :)

1. NON-modded stalker version:

If you've never used mods, go into your stalker dir, mine's

"C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl"

And open up:"FSgame.ltx"

Change the first line to this:

"$game_data$           = false|    true|    $fs_root$|        gamedata\"

Now the game will use data from the "gamedata" folder, instead of the .db (.database) files :)

Now, copy parts 1,2,3 into your directory, i've set it all up. If it asks to overwrite the current gamedata folder, just do so :)


Installation Procedure 2:

If you already have a gamedata with textures in it, don't mind the fsgame.ltx switch.

Backup your original files and overwrite the 3 parts in the textures folder :)
