HDHQ - Textures/Lighting/Environment

Recommended Posts

Excellent Dust2Death!!! I was wondering - is this client side only or available on servers? I'd love to pop this onto our group lol

 

Its all client side. The server doesnt need these files for the core HDHQ mod to work in MP.

 

So if one of your group for example couldnt/didnt want to run the mod, you still could and both can play together.

With the little nuance that the server has to have EAC off. Or only the non modded player can connect.

 

Cheers

Anyway, if all things go well today..

OK. Here is where Im at. Remember, this is a work in progress. I look forward to your feedback.

 

V0.1

Download size is 847.1MB Compressed.

 

Copy the 2 Data folders from the Parent HDHQ folder into your Game directory where the .exe is. Yes to Overwrite the 3 files. Profit.

EAC OFF.

Just tried this today and... wow. The game looks so much better. Thank you for creating this. The only comment I have is regarding the new steel texture. Here's a screenshot:

To me the "grooves" on the spikes look like they have a green tint. I think it would look a little bit better if the grooves were desaturated and grey/black. Everything else looks amazing.

What kind of performance hit you guys taking when trying this?

 

Not sure about everyone else, but I got just about no FPS hit at all, maybe 2-5 FPS at the worst.

Thanks. Im pleased you like :)

I have added that feedback to my list to adjust as well as a couple other minor things on that texture.

 

What kind of performance hit you guys taking when trying this?

 

Going to depend on res+cpu+settings

 

Total hit is between 10 - 15fps @ 3440x1440 on my system

 

4790K stock + GTX 1080, 16GB, SSD, Gsync.

 

BlockBundle has about a 5fps hit depending on area due to the grass changes. (more alpha, increased res from 512px to 1K).

TerrainBundle hit is really dependant on cpu seeing as its all 4K but in my testing was between 5 - 10fps.

 

these settings:

A lot of my testing was on uncompressed bundles, however I compressed for release to cut the download down.

Terrain Bundle is 1GB uncompressed compared to the ~450MB compressed.

I havent tested differences between compressed and uncompresssed at this end point. Earlier testing showed no noticeable difference to loading or framerates.

 

That may be different now I have it fully loaded up.

I found the video of this mod on YouTube.

Because of limited resolution in YouTube, its just 1080p, though worth watching for those who haven't tried this mod yet. :)

Very cool. Thank you very much for all your hard work.

One question.

I am limited to a 1920x1200 resolution when playing.

Will this benefit my setup, even though I don't have a 4k monitor?

Thanks!

This mod actually makes you forget that you're playing a voxel-based game... the only big difference is that it pretty much kills potatoes and bring my ok computer (16Gb ram, gtx 1080, i7 6770, ssd) to it's knees at times, could be my own mod making it, too (an sdx one) and if somebody wonders, then it's really simple to install it on a pure SDX mod which adds quite a lot - as long as you haven't modded the assets that were changed (and even if that's the case - then get your hands dirty, so to speak - and you're able to combine them).

 

Great mod! (was actually speaking of the .2 version, the only one I've been testing so far, .3 is still downloading) I assume it's even better!

Thanks Gup and Hratalvi.

 

Yep, the mod is demanding, no 2 ways about it, or around it. :)

 

Ive tested heavy loads in what I deem one of the heavier locations being the maple forest.

 

With 50 zoms on screen I can maintain ~30fps+ @3440x1440p

 

Bring on A17!!!
