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.


"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


This mod will be compatible with every mod.


Sad news S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S.
22nd, Feb: Welcome. I am not pleased with the GF download service at all, and rest assure I didn't just sit around and did nothing. I've send an email at the staff regarding the issue and I hope to hear back from them soon.For now, grazegrabber has put up an alternative link to a torrent. Because my internet is slow, uploading takes half a day for me, so I can't spend the time uploading the parts to other sites. We just have to wait a bit. The zone's testing our patience.



In regard of the blocked countries, here is the list:

About the User.ltx

It's pretty simple to tweak the user.ltxMy user.ltx is linked here. Do mind that you can't directly use my config, because of the custom keybindings with my gaming mouse and resoltion. But, you can read this article on how to change your user.ltx (albeit ingame, or in notepad) and what line does what. I'd advise you not to go overboard :)And there are some handy tricks to doing the stuff in game, just type "r1" and use "TAB" to go through the commands!

I would advise you to remove this mod and check it, you have folders that do not work in Stalker SoC, most of the textures are original, textures that the game has unpacked, unmodified, I'm checking it right now, there is a lot of mess, there are modified textures mixed with original textures, and those that are modified are the same as the originals but have a different "color tone" nothing else, the quality is practically the same.

This mod really only has a few new textures that can be used, out of almost 800mb of textures there are less than 100mb usable, you need to get more organized my friend.

I do not advise anyone to use this mod until the problems are solved, the amount of 800mb is not justified and in many cases the textures simply have a different color tone nothing else, there are some new textures, but they are very few.

I appreciate the author's effort but he has to do better, it is not a question of doing it better, it is a question of doing it right, people will think that they are going to download 800mb of quality textures, and they will be wrong.

Advised to check the date, this was made in 2013 who knows if the creator is still around. I think back then this was considered good, Nowadays it's pretty terrible. The Structures Redux or 2k pack was good but the bump maps don't seem to work in SOC. The only pack that has working bump maps in SOC that I know of is TemplarGFX's Parallax Mod.

I'm currently playing through Shadow of Chernobyl. Would installing this mid play mess up my game?

Is it compatible with your absolute nature and structures addons, and if not which is better?

I could not make it work. The folder structure looks right, and the fsgame file also (as in the prints).

How do you install this exactly? Everything is in the gamedata folder and I've got gamedata set to true in the ltx file, but nothing happens in game
