The stand-alone mod S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Anomaly aims to be the most stable and customizable experience for fans of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. It's powered by the Monolith 64-bit engine, a custom fork of the X-Ray engine.
AI upscale of the original Anomaly Skybox textures (1Kx1K), - much more details, clean, sharp; - decreased blurriness/pixelation/CB. ------- READ THE DESCRIPTION for any UPDATES, and BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS. --------
ALL weathers/SKYboxes are included.
187 cubemap textures, 4GB --- packed into 1.32GB .DB0-2 --- further compressed into 1GB .7zip for upload.
In total, I've spent around 14-15 hours on purely editing all the Skybox cubemaps, (in addition to everything else that was required), in order to further improve the quality, and to minimize/remove any 'Color Banding' issues.
-- In the end, I consider the whole effort on these 187 textures - worthwhile, because now the vistas in Anomaly are truly breathtaking.
For 1.5 Final and the betas (RC15+), or Update4 Hotfix8.
This file default extracts the files in 'Anomaly\\db\mods'. -- And this works well for 1.5 F/b.
-- For U4H8, move the three .DB files to be in 'Anomaly\db\addons'
This is a part of the 'FIVE-PART' upscaled textures for Anomaly: SKY,WEAPONS,WORLD,MUTANTS,STALKERS.
( I am putting this as a clear info for those who are concerned about missing out anything important. )
"NOTE: this addon does NOT contain any configs/scripts, ONLY textures.
So, there should be no incompatibilities with other addons.
On average, expect a few GB of RAM (1-2) to be utilized more than usual.
FPS should remain without change, provided the above requirements are met.
Simply unpack into your main Anomaly folder. ( -- For U4H8, move the .DB files as instructed. )
