Valve integrated new shaders in the Orange Box Engine,
I discovered these and tried to make it work in dod source.

SSBump is a shader, I will present it later,

now, let's talk about Ambient Occlusion Mapping.
It consists of light attenuation depending on surroundings configuration, therefore it is useful on bumpy materials, such as rocks, cobble, etc...

Here is my first try :
- texture by Fakefactory
- bumpmap, envmap, occlusion map by djibe89

Original ("Vanilla") argentan :

Original stone texture

djibe edit :

Dod_argentan stonewall Ambiant
Dod_argentan stonewall Ambiant

Vanilla Argentan

djibe edit

Dod_argentan stonewall Ambiant

I hope you can see the difference ;-). What do you think ?
See ya

totally agree, its at "very high" now, hope they add an "ultra high" with parallax and such to source :)

I'm not sure if this still works, or ever did work, in DoD:S, but there used to be a command for TF2 called mat_picmip -10, this would leave the textures uncompressed (or compressed very little) and thus less blurry than the normal game. Sadly it was unceremoniously removed in the last major update for TF2. (Very High is mat_picmip -1)

He's right, it's just a texture change with shading. Still looks good though.
