two k grass pack beta 01



[Update 24/11/18]


Beta available in addon section:

Stalker Two-K Grass Pack





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...

Very excited about the new vegetation mod. High quality vegetation is one of the biggest visual improvements for STALKER, and really ads to the overall atmosphere. Keep up the good work!

There are few mods that deal with skies, like eg skygod.
But I found out that after some tests that not resolution mater in skies but overall quality of sky images, and to find good sky textures is hard as hell not to mention that you need to have good transmission between time of day and weather... Also weather configuration it self can affect quality because bad lighting can make sky to look odd...

I tested many Textures Pack sky they keep 99% vanilla resolution they mostly change only colors or replaces cloud configs but still have 1 pixel per mile ;-)

well yeah, I mean quality of image it self is important as far as sky texture is at least 1024px not 512px :D

Would these current files work with 1.5 R7? One from Balath's Google Drive?

Those are just textures, they should work with anything.

I didnt bother yet to download R7 but I dont think that they changed totally structure of folders, not only because it would be stupid but because it would be... stupid?
They can clean config files/folders but touching textures or level folders would have no sense at all...
