HDHQ - Textures/Lighting/Environment

Recommended Posts

Probably a silly question but is the Tasty 18.2 b5 lighting files need to be installed on server and client, or client side only? Many thanks to you Dust2Death, I used this mod in A17 and absolutely loved it! Cheers

Only just got back from a weekend trip.

 

You only need to install client side. :)

If you might find some time, the HDHQ Spotlight can't be crafted, as it can't be unlocked and doesn't unlock with the normal Spotlight.

 

And also the torch, if you pick it up, it's then still the old one :D

 

No rush, just so it won't be forgotten.

A18.1 b8 Lighting.

 

Get from Nexus.

 

https://www.nexusmods.com/7daystodie/mods/133?tab=files

 

Can anybody put this somewhere else? I don't have and don't want a nexus-account.

 

Is there any summary what works with 18.2 and/or what needs to be done to make this work with 18.2?

 

I tried installing the 17.4 2K version from the OP. The dedicated server throws some errors:

2019-12-12T19:06:34 18.180 ERR Block HDHQ_DesertSeedPrefab is found multiple times, overriding with latest definition!

2019-12-12T19:06:56 40.408 ERR XML loader: Loading and parsing 'loot.xml' failed
Exception: Item with name 'HDHQSchoolBusAccessories' not found!

 

The client gets stuck on the splash screen....

 

And can anybody tell me how this mod affects performance? Does it have just a little impact, huge impact, doesn't change performance but looks better, or even increase performance a little?

We have some players with not that good hardware specs and i don't want to make the game unplayable for them. Since it also requires mods on the server side i assume it does not only work on client side?

The main pack files will NOT work on 18.x.

 

They are for A17 only, client side, do not install them to the server. 18.x only has lighting files available.

 

The modlets all still work on A18, albeit with a warning or 2. I have not updated them yet, cause they work for the most part. I'll get to them eventually. When eventually is, thats a different question ;)

 

Performance impact of the textures @ 2K is basically non existant.

Use a biome pack and you will gain FPS cause they are heavily optimized compared to the vanilla trees.

 

modlets must be installed on client and server.

Hey DUST2DEATH. I am using Ravenhearst mod which by default uses your mod. I am seeing much more aliasing than in vanilla. Is this your issue? Also, can I somehow tone down the vibrance or are the textures like that?

A18.3 Lighting on Nexus, got tired of waiting for stable.

I dont think so. I dont notice any more or less aliasing using my lighting or vanilla.

As for the vibrance of the textures, make sure your gamma is set to default when using the lighting. The lighting side of the mod removes all the washout vanilla has :)

Incredible! Thx D2D, I've been wanting to play 18.3 with some nice lighting. Cheers for updating before 18.3 goes stable.

Man i know the chances of this are slim to none since its experimental but ive been playing on a laptop and 18.3 runs like a dream. 18.4 does not. Biggest difference is i dont have your lighting. Im here with my tin cup shaking it asking you to have mercy on my poor soul :D

 

had to take my shot at least :)

Yes. 18.4 crashes with the Alpha 18.3 b3 Lighting. The Biome Packs (modlets) appear to work fine though.

Any progress on updating the textures for A18? Everything about this just make the game look fantastic

 

Nope. Cant be done in any easy way to make it worthwhile doing.

Yeah, I really wish TFP would make it a bit easier to mod block textures

Hi everyone

 

I have fixed some bugs that I found:

Fixed a bug where the seeds could not be planted, they disappeared (jungleseed, desertseed, alpineseed, palmseed), corrected the icon folder, now if it shows them.

I currently use Baseline Biome Overhaul and Biome particles effects, A18.4 stable.

Thank you very much DUST2DEATH,your effort is greatly appreciated.

It's not the Biome Overhauls or the modlets (i.e. particles, wind etc.) that are the problem. They work fine. So does lighting. It's the textures that are the problem. I have a HUGE amount of time on my hands and would be willing - but DUST2DEATH says it's not worth it so I'll take him at his word.
