Upscaled Textures and Weapon Icons
« on: July 10, 2018, 02:27:30 AM »
Good day fellas. I've been spending some time looking into upscaling algorithms and have been using the textures in Turok 2 to mess around with.
Inevitably, I have scaled the textures up by 6 whole. These textures are absolutely lore friendly. The source of these textures are the original textures, so there will be no negative effect on the atmosphere. What can you expect from this?

-Textures that generally look better
-Masked and transparent textures have no aliasing, there are no longer any jagged edges
-The lot of the grass textures have been completely replaced with a set of color (palette) matched grass textures
-The blood splatter textures are now color matched to the blood and are thereby now lore friendly
-An attempt to emulate texture density (detail) with noise and some other tricks (This works particularly well on things like Joshua's textures)
-Longer loading times
-Greater performance impact
-The effect of the algorithm can be seen on some textures

Great! Where can I get it?

Textures 1.4GB OR 1GB
Version 1 (Less appealing) 1.4GB
Mediafire
Version 2 (Better alpha and masking, better textures) 1GB
Upload coming soon...

Awesome. You mind if I include these with my project? I may edit some of them if that's ok. Full credit will be given to you for your work.

Great. When will the full size texture pack be done? Is it currently uploading or something?

I'm fixing some issues. Expect it by tomorrow at the latest.

Though they've been considerably upscaled, they don't seem to offer much definition to the actual textures themselves which makes the the size a waste.

Is there not much of a difference? I'm waiting for the full size version.

Yeah when they're resolution was so low by default, it is incredibly difficult to use an algorithm to upscale them. The full-size version will look a bit better, and things like foliage will look much better because of a much more optimized upscaling concept I came out with. I'll update the thread soon.
