A personalized view on the texture work of the game STALKER: Shadow Of Chernobyl. Updates are inbound since I've got time to work on this again, after a very long hiatus. Duplicates / unfinished work will be fixed in 2.2!

I got off my *** and cleaned up quite a bit. There's no need for:

Duplicate textures,
Source files,
.pdn / .psd files (which are usually 3 to 4 times as big as the completed texture)

And I went ahead and manually saved all non-transparent textures in DXT1. It's not 100% lossless, but cuts down on size considerably. I've shaved a good 350MB's off the mod with just this.

And thanks! Shader package soon, hopefully

by addons you mean just a shader mod? and where are the act textures. something is wrong over here.

This is purely a structural overhaul mod as of now. The /act folder was full of textures I didn't feel like they were up to quality. I might go back with my current texturing knowledge and go at it once more, but creating creatures skins is a whole other task than environment tiled textures.

I could always re-upload them seperately if the demand is high, but upon close inspection, I didn't like the textures a lot.

Swartzy (from Radium) is going to cooperate in creating a new Shader Addon (shader mod specifically made for PRZ2) which will hopefully be released soon.

Cheers

Yes, it's a modular mod that works with any SoC mod since it only changes textures :)

Are you sure? OGSE 693 is a whole different beast than its earlier entries. Like a whole standalone game with different file structure and packaging methods.

Great looking mod dude, one major problem though...
I simply can't enter Agroprom with the shaders you included without crashing with an error stating "Your video card doesn't meet game requirements, Pixel Shaders v1.1 or higher required" (I'm on a GTX 970/i7 4770K with 16 gigs of RAM so my rig is definitely capable).
Playing without the shaders and it works just fine.
I checked the log and this was the error:

"Loading shaders...
error is SkyGRAPHICS_options.cfg(66): warning X1519: 'SSAO_QUALITY' : macro redefinition
common.h(198): warning X3083: Truncating 4-vector to size 1
water.ps(105): error X3003: redefinition of 'Fc'

Can't compile shader water_soft"

Other mods in use:
ZRP 1.07 R5
Absolute Structures 1.0.7
Absolute Nature 1.3.7

Pretty basic, so there shouldn't be any mods that interfere with each other as far as I know.

Any clues how to solve this? Much appriciated!

(One thing to note, while familiar with modding in general, it's actually the first time I'm modding STALKER, so I'm sorry if I'm missing something completely obvious, haha.)

>500+ files with CoP/AN/otherwise-not-SoC-friendly filepaths
>no \levels or textures.ltx redirects to make them work

I'm open to the possibility that I just have brain problems but this doesn't seem correct.

It's indeed a brain problem.

But it's one on my end. Fug. I am planning on making the mod "universal" (so to speak), so I already merged some of the AN / CoP paths with my own gamedata for the CoP version but left these in. I am a complete idiot when it comes to file structures and/or sorting of my **** so it tends to get heavily mixed up. Could've easily shaved off a couple 100Mb more with a thorough cleanup.

Thanks for mentioning it TK. I'll get to it
