Two-K Grass Pack Teaser

Feature 2 comments

two k grass pack beta 01



For past few months I was working on totally new grass mod, that not only will contain new textures, but also new, more complex models giving stalker more realistic feel.

Right now I made almost 70-80% of work that I wanted, I had some problem with optimization due to more complex meshes that grass now use, but I think I found some compromise in terms of look and performances.

Still of course people need to remember that such mod is seriously demanding for hardware, especially in game like Stalker, so some good hardware is needed to use it, but still just like with main Two-K texture pack I made is and test in mostly on my laptop, so if my laptop can handle it with just 6-8fps drops compared to current grass addon I have, its mean that its not that bad...


As you probably noticed, there is no download links. Its because this article is mostly teaser for this addon, and in the same time request for anyone who would like to test new grass, but I mean test it, not just download it and then write twitter-like opinion "its ok" or "its bad". I mean test, point out problems, bugs and most important: test performance. That mean posting your hardware, settings(especially r__detail), used mod, and screenshoots if needed...

Right now I have 13 maps ready to test:

Cordon, Zaton, Jupiter, Pripyat, Outskirts, Swamps, Agroprom, Dark Valley, Bar, Wild Territory, Army Warehouse, Yantar and Radar.

If you are seriously interested in testing, send me PM here on moddb. I could reply with some delay due to some personal time consuming issues, but I will send link to zip and info as soon as possible, but as I said I dont really look for payers who want to just get the link and play, I really need some external opinion and performance test with proper info...

And at the end few screenshots so this article will not look so empty :D

Most advanced graphic mod for Stalker. If you though that 2k or 4k have "Ultra Quality"... prepare for 8bit...

Thanks for adding the .ppe effector files for the 'apparitions' INSIDE Lab X-16! The atmosphere in X-16 was killed when the devs used the effect there. Not sure if 'psy_antenna.ppe. is supposed to work outside X-16 as there's still apparitions there. If you can remove the apparitions outside X-16 please!

Thanks so much for the work having a blast with your textures. I'm running on 'DX9 Enhanced' no issues with many hours of gameplay.

Other mods installed:

AO3
DoctorX Questlines
DRXCoCDynamicFactionRelations1.8
Smurths_Dynamic_Hud_for_CoCv.3.2.2.8
HD outfit models

Anyone have suggestions how i can add some vehicle textures?I tried adding vehicle textures from other mods but they don't work. Wish I could get that to work! Stalker is complicated for me!

Thanks!

I was off the grid(no internet) for past few weeks so I didnt update anything, but I can ensure you all that I still work on this mod, and for now almost half of new grass mod is ready, its still need some optimization but it work and look pretty good. Some of updates to textures and other small stuff that I made you can find in Anomaly mod: Moddb.com
Next update for Two-K will be probably in next two months(maybe...), first new grass addon and then update for main texture pack.
As for some of the request I gathered, I will make them but later in time. For example for now I will not split mod to two parts: nature and structure, I will make it later after few updates... sorry :/

If anyone have any suggestions or bugs related to textures feel free to write it here or via PM.

just to let you know lad, with AO3/STCoP + OA + HD Models even your TinyLittle version isn't well, tiny enough to stop the game from crashing due to memory errors. I know that there isn't too much you can do due to the engine being 32bit, but perhaps you could somehow make the texture size even smaller. The best thing about your mod isn't just the resolution of the textures, it is mainly the artstyle that looks so great. So perhaps you could lower the res of some textures. It's supposed to be a version for heavily modded stalker, but with heavily modded stalker it crashes.

Also, just a suggestion. You could make object/building textures and terrain/nature textures divided into two different files. This would be useful for people who can't run the mod with both the terrain and the buildings, but could run it with just the building textures (which look great).

The only way for one to achieve this right now is to install your entire mod and then replace the terrain with files from either vanilla game or Nature redux.

I'm installing in this order; AO3, AF3, HUD REWORKED, AN4, REPORTPRIPYAT 2016, TWO-K...

Game works perfectly fine until I add the TWO-K files to my game... Any suggestions? My Rig can surely not be the problem

Anything in mod that should be fixed or it was just installation problem?

Tried the Tiny version but same result. I guess the ram usage just exceeds 2GB which is why it won't work. The mod itself should be fine tho

RAM is self it not a problem, its more about Graphic memory.

I play, and actually made most of this mod on laptop with medicore Radeon that have just 2GB of VRAM, and I dont have problems.

Stalker for most of time is like Pandora Box, and you never know what make it crash or why it lag, but for most of time tweaking settings help.
It also depend on what mod/game you play and resolution, its sometimes better to lower resolution but set fancy graphic options higher(options like parallax, shadows or sun effects are mostly run by GPU and CPU, that can handle them without a problem, but when you set game resolution high your computer need to render 2x more pixels slowing down everything else and making lags..)

Tiny Little version when I tested it take about 980MB(average) of Video RAM and about 2.3GB of RAM,so its not really that much...

Varous wpn crosshair changes to suit my taste.

Thanks for the textures. Very refreshing and much appreciated
