Thief - Animated HD Vegetation Demo 2018 (4K):
This is not the Unreal Engine, no CryEngine or Unity. It's just the Dark Engine from 1998 with the latest NewDark Patch.
After a longer break the Thief 2 HD Mod v1.0 release comes closer.
What you see in this demo is the work of months. All was rendered with 3DS Max and with the help of a 16 core CPU. Hours and hours of rendering to get this quality. In this demo we show you eleven different types of vegetation. After the Thief 2 HD Mod is released we want to share all this stuff with all FM makers. Hopefully we will see some of this in some future FMs. We know that not all animations are perfect. But we did our best! Don't forget that we can only use 99 different frames on any animation. Let us know if you like it!
Thief 2 HD Mod v1.0 - Trail of Blood - Preview (4K):
This is a short preview of the Thief 2 Mission 'Trail of Blood'. All grass animations were created with a 3DS Max plugin by hand. We bought the 3DS Max plugin for a lot of money and it was a bunch of work to get this result of quality grass. The smooth wind animation fits better to the gaming atmosphere. All giant trees were replaced and it looks more realistic now. The new Thief 2 vegetation is finished to 90 % on all Thief 2 missions.
About the FPS problem in the video 'Trail of Blood' -> The problem is that the mission isn't good optimized at the moment. We will optimize the LOD settings before releasing it. So we are still working on it!
