This is original textures enlarged four times with Topaz A.I. Gigapixel neural network. In addition a special program has created for analysis and correct the edges of HD textures. The program corrected the necessary textures so the texture seams are much less visible.

Hi I'm trying to install this mod, and I cannot unpack the second archive. Whenever I try using WinRAR, I get an error message "unexpected end of archive" and "no files to extract". If I try with 7z, I get an error relating to Malkcigar.ttz, and the files again will not copy over.

Please help...I've seen this error pop up on here and there doesn't seem to have been any response. Thank you!

Keep getting this weird unlisted error when I try to extract part 1 "Error 0x8096002A: No error description available." wont unzip because of it. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? Maybe I'm just a noob and missed something simple?

Lights and street lights are black from using this. Appears some textures are just straight up bugged.

For those who would like to use this mod together with other mods, I think I've cooked up a bit of a solution. As is now known, the materials folder cannot exceed around 8.6GB or the game will almost certainly crash when you load into a new zone. For the time being, no one has produced a solution for this, so it means there has to be a bit of tradeoff in texture quality in order to reduce the size of the materials folder. I think I've found an easily achievable and mostly happy medium.

Many of the textures in the AI HD pack require a .vmt file that tells the engine the textures are 4x the expected size. Making such textures smaller would be extremely time-consuming and prone to human error as you'd have to regenerate a bunch of .vmt files. However, the textures used on modeled game objects rather than level geometry don't use a .vmt file. This is almost everything in the .\materials\models\scenery\* subfolders. As it happens, this is also one of the largest subfolders in the AI HD texture pack.

What I've done is used the tools in the Bloodlines SDK to take the 4x upscaled textures from this AI HD pack and reduced just the textures in the .\materials\models\scenery\* subfolders by half (still 2x the originals). Doing this takes the total size of the AI HD pack down to ~6GB and leaves plenty of room for several other texture mods.

I have NOT fully tested this with a complete playthrough of the game. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. However, early testing in the Santa Monica hub areas indicates that it's all working well.

So, without further ado, if you'd like to download it, here is (nearly) everything from the .\materials\models\scenery\* subfolders at 2x instead of 4x:
1drv.ms

Steps to use:
1. Install the Unofficial Patch
2. Install the VTMB A.I. HD Textures via its installer to your Unofficial_Patch folder
3. Download and unzip the file I've linked above
4. Copy the materials folder from my 2x pack on top of the materials folder in your Unofficial_Patch folder (overwrite all files when prompted)
5. Install other mods as you see fit.

Thanks a lot GammaLeak
I played an entire playthrough with this installed, I haven't noticed downgrade in textures visually except for the taxi cab that has it's color messed up, it reduced my materials folder size considerably, and it reduced amount of crashes, this texture downsize is a must have.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get the VTMB A.I. HD Textures to install? I keep getting error code 5, so cannot even attempt GammaLeak's fix.
