HD Mod

Hey guys,

I'm creating the Oni textureupdate, as you (maybe) know.
I have not managed much, but I would like to hear your opinions on this. (look at the screenshots) smile
The HD Mod uses "Fake Bumpmapping", "Fake Parallax" and adds new sings. I have not even finished the first level, but all console signs are done.

Every day I work on the texture update. And before I can upload it, some weeks will be elapsed.
The mod takes already more than 100MBs. I think, the texture update will take about 1 GB if its finished.
But please tell me, if you like it. smile

Sorry for the subtitles and the HUD.  neutral
In the post below are new screesnhots! I had to start again.


2nd Demo downloadable. A lot levels has been updated, but not finished. A lot of textures has been reworked and look even better now.

Download: ~ 108mb

Re: HD Mod

Very nice texturing! Fake bumpmapping and parallax looks great!

To get rid of the HUD, enable Dev Mode and in the console enter gs_show_ui = 0
For subtitles, go to the Options menu and uncheck the subtitles option.

Re: HD Mod

Thank you very much EdT! I'll disable the hud and the Subtitles in the next screenshots.
Tomorrow I'll carry on with it, and maybe I upload somewhere a demo version. (maybe 200 mbs big_smile)

@EdT

Yes, but I think, that the creator would not be very proud if I'm stealing his textures smile
I first wanted to download it and add this to my update, but I think I'm not allowed to do this, if I don't ask him.
Severed Textures are (very) good too, but I think I'm not allowed to steal it big_smile

Re: HD Mod

Venom3:  I was not suggesting you borrow/steal/use his textures smile I just wanted you to know that someone already done the training area in HD, in case you were planning on doing that.

Keep up the great work.  Maybe one day you can make HD textures for the characters.

Re: HD Mod

Oh, yes I knew already that someone made new textures... But thank you anyway smile

Sorry, but I don't think I can make HD textures of the characters, because I have to add more detail. I just resize textures and maybe add some scratches, and make some of them like parallax. Maybe I can upgrade the armor, but no faces or hands... Sorry big_smile

I'm upgading right now more textures and maybe I'll finish the first level today! wink And then I'll upload a demo version for you to try it out.

Edit.:

I'm done with the first level! Demo version is done with uploading! To download my demo version, look at the first post! I added a download link!

Re: HD Mod

Venom: Sorry for the late response.  I tested your mod, great work on the textures. 

Though, somehow on my system, the large textures caused major lag, so I had to scale them down to 256x256, but they still look good.

Which level are you going to try next?

Re: HD Mod

Thank you for testing smile

Of course I'm going to update the second level wink
You can see some of those textures in other levels too, so I don't have to update them twice smile
I started already with the second level, but I need some days. I don't want to work on the textures the whole day. I hope you understand this.

Why is it lagging? Is your system too weak for this? ( tongue ) Are the console signs working?
Thank you again for testing it.

Re: HD Mod

Hey guys!

A while ago, I had huge computer problems (virus). I had to reinstall my computer and lost a lot of work of my texture update.
Yesterday I reinstalled Oni too, and started updating more textures. I created a lot of new textures and they look a lot better than before.
I made some screens:

(No, the suit is not mine wink )
And sorry for the HUD, every time I open the console, the game crashes sad But I hope it's okay anyway smile

I just want to let you know, that I'm working again very hard on these textures. smile

It's looking great Venom, it's a shame that most of your previous work got destroyed, but it seems that you are undaunted by that fact. Keep up the good work, I can't wait to see the final product!

Re: HD Mod

Thanks wink I reinstalled my computer some months ago. I of course lost all of my bookmarks of my browser, and after some weeks, I remembered Oni and this community. Nice to see you guys again! smile big_smile

But I think It'll take a while before I can upload a second demo. And if I want to make my own textures I need up to 30 minutes to create one of those, so it'll take a long time. But I do what I can. I'll keep you informed smile

Re: HD Mod

Thanks for "Reputation +1" wink

In this screen, you can see that I created a new texture, not updated the old one. Do you think, this one is okay too? Or do you want that I update the old texture?
Tell me what you think smile

Re: HD Mod

Thanks for your answer.
The Problem is, I'm able to create simple textures. Computers and consoles are very hard to create, so I just size them up and add detail.
I'm not even done with the second level, but I search for some textures which I can create in the whole game: I've already updated the crack in level 14 at the start.
I hope I don't get this virus again... neutral

OK, I carry on with this.

Re: HD Mod

Hi guys,

I wrote nothing in here for a long time. But I hope you haven't thought that this mod was dead wink I took some new screens for you to show you my current progress.

I need a lot of more time to finish, but if you want me to upload a demo again, I can do it for you wink

Re: HD Mod

I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of all your work, but some of your stuff is pretty good. I love your concrete textures and carpet textures.

A few criticisms:
The concrete beam texture in TCTF has too much contrast. Make it blander to hide the fact that it repeats so much. Concrete in real life does not repeat like that, so you have to hide the fact that it is.
The walls in Airport are a little too dark. They also have the same problem as the concrete beam textures: too much shadowy splotches. For large stretches of repeated texture you do not want to have distinctive parts in the texture. One part should look roughly the same as any other.
The ramp texture in Airport is a bit too...blue, I guess. This might be a bit nitpicky, but lowering the saturation on it a tad bit may look better.

Re: HD Mod

Ok, thanks Gumby, I reworked this textures again, and you are right! The textures in the HQ are looking a lot better with less contrast.
I wanted the blue ramp texture more blue because... I like blue wink But I reduced it's saturation as you wanted and I hope you think it's good now.
I hope the Airport wall textures are ok too, so I took some screens again.

It would be great if you have more tips for me, even though if I have to rework my whole textureupdate again...

Re: HD Mod

Wow! Much better! As for the ramp, it's mostly a matter of personal taste. As long as it looks good in general its ok.

Next up: what's with the console things right in front of Konoko in the Airport screenshot? I don't think you used the right sort of texture for those. hmm Again, too detailed. Blander = better. In this case you are simulating shadows which don't exist. wink
