Unreal Tournament HD textures 3.0 are here. This release is focused on completing all of the UT99 specific texture packages that were incomplete. UT99 is now HD from top to bottom!
Ver. 3 represents a fork in the road between the Unreal and UT99 offerings. The Ver. 1 and 2 releases were focused on completing the Unreal textures. The new UT99 pack now contains 82 .utx packages, while the Unreal version has 28. All of the textures in UT99 are now HD, including bonus pack 1-4 textures. The UT 2nd CD S3TC textures are not needed when using this pack.
Visit the project webpage to find the HD4K Extreme Resolution Edition v3 for the Direct X 11 renderer
HD skins for players, monsters, weapons, pickups, and decorations require a separate mod: The HD Skins mod By Lightning Hunter

Other optional versions of this HD pack are found there: HD4K Extreme Resolution Edition v3 for the Direct X 11 renderer
Also the S3TC Techdemo Betatextures, an HD pack that features all of the earliest HD textures by Epic and Diehard unaltered, many of which were replaced in the v2 and v3 pack. Any missing textures are now filled in from the v3 pack.
Installation \ Configuration
For UT99 be patched to 436 and use an updated renderer such as:
Warning- never use these textures on a server or when mapping.
In short, there are only 2 things needed to upgrade Unreal’s textures to HD. Overwrite the original .UTX files with the new ones.
Have “use S3TC=TRUE” in the renderer preferences. Download the version of these textures for Unreal227 or UT99 depending on what you are going to use. If you are not going to be playing on servers at all, the different versions are actually interchangeable. Having the right version installed is required by most servers however or you will get a version mismatch error. For Unreal 227 I also recommend turning on shadows in Preferences - Pawn Shadows - realtime, and decoration shadows.
Also in Advanced options set Rendering - VolumetricLighting to true for your renderer. This turns on fog effects (UT99 as well)
-Epic Games - they created a relatively small number of HD textures that came on UT99 disc 2. And of course all of the original textures...
-Diehard SCWS- created a huge number of textures included here.
-AHaigh01 -that's me.
-Lightning Hunter- For lots of advice and consultation throughout the creation process of this HD pack, and finding many errors. He also contributed his texturing skills to many textures, and made the HD skins mod.
-Krull0r - Also found many errors and gave many good suggestions
