SHTUP (System Shock 2 Texture Upgrade Project) is a mod for System Shock 2 which aims to increase the resolution of all the common (and quite a few of the not-so-common) object textures. A secondary objective of the mod is to correct all other graphical glitches, such as typos, continuity errors, texture alignment errors, and so on. All of this is to be done while sticking as closely as possible to the original art style. Simply put, our goal is to make SS2 look like a higher-res version of itself.

DESCRIPTION: The System Shock 2 Texture Upgrade Project (SHTUP) is an effort to increase the quality of SS2's textures by recreating them as faithfully as possible at a higher resolution. Most of the textures that SS2 shipped with were only 128x128 or lower. Secondary objectives of SHTUP include correcting typos and other graphical glitches, enhancing animations, and basically doing whatever can be done to pretty up the graphics. This project is far from complete. If you're a talented artist or 3D modeler, we'd be glad to accept any help you can offer. SHTUP is completely compatible with the Rebirth AI model upgrade mod.
