The graphics engine uses a dynamic way of sharpening, this means when you see creatures in the hire creatures screen (where you see them from very close) they are sharpened to the max and look exactly the same (no matter the mod is installed or not). When you see creatures from a further distance they are sharpened less because that actually increases the visual quality. Otherwise you get the effect I mentioned in my earlier post. On CH a saw somebody already complaining about this when playing on 1024x768
The mod breaks up the system of dynamic sharpening and makes all creatures maximally sharpened in all situations. This can have a positive effect for people playing the game on low settings, because they probably never saw the creatures with such an high quality in the hire screen and when zooming in on the combat map. And so I didn't say it is a bad mod.
But you must realise that even if you sharpen all textures in the game you can never achieve the same graphics quality from high settings on low settings. Because you will again meet the quality-decrease when zooming and the settings also affect other visual effects like particles. People with high perfromance pc's can increase the quality even more with Anisotropic Filtering.
So that's why I say don't make mods using these textures because these mods will conflict with the way the engine is supposed to treat textures.

It certainly should do no harm, so give it a go. Usually the files don't move, imo.

hey, i have played TotE quite a lot lately and sort of think your mod is for specific ppl, fiur. I have played H3 before and have gotten used to having my hero small and having a big view on adv.map/battle/town/other 3D things. so when i zoom out into my big point of view, all the textures become pixelized caused by cropping. so i think this mod is for people who like to zoom in and look at the wonderful 3D envirement where the textures become normal, very sharp, and not blurry like the original.

OK this mod is something great but could you also create sharper texture for other things like terrain.It would be great to have the terrain with sharper texture.

Nice mod, but I think the game runs slower.

Hey Fiur,

Could you post a standalone mod with just all your retexturings and recolorings.

On my slow machine the sharper textures mod actually makes them look worse, but I do like your custom creature models...

Hi there,


Sorry for probable grave digging...but I can't help it..


@Fiur, any chance the greatest mod I've ever seen will come real? I mean if you make all the creatures the same way as you did Magma Dragon?

This is exactly what I was waiting for...perfect, just perfect!!

Thanks,

i.n.s.a.n.e
