Description
Hello, this is my Full Texture Pack V4. The approach is different from V3, so it's more of an alternative than an update to that one.

For the updated content changes, take a look at the change notes. :)

If you want to use another mods water that also adds another beach terrain, check out my beach & rock mods. That way you can keep a better fitting beach together with that water!

Included are the following mods:
- The land pack V5
- The moving water pack V3
- The mines upgrade V4.5 (Stone mines are slightly darker now)
- The cliff upgrade V2
- The tree compilation

Update notes:
- optimized blending of dirt/grass textures
- most land textures are completely new or a completely new mix of older ones
- while I really liked my old deserts, I realized textures containing 'elevations' themselves don't look that good on elevations ingame. So this time desert is changed to a 'flat' texture. If you want to use my earlier deserts - tell me and I'll publish them seperatelly.

If you like an earlier version of one of the included mods more, you can easily subscribe to that seperate mod after this compilation for further using it.

Credits:

- Farms: based on Mike's Real Farms - V2 / based on Shayne's ST farm texture

Thanks for sharing all these great textures.

And also big thanks to borutb11 and Kataphraktos for their testing and feedback regarding the new terrain textures!
----------------------------

For a mod is never 'finished' - only published at some point - if you think a specific texture or elements of it should be further improved, changed (to an other), redone or simply doesn't satisfy you as much as the others - please tell me!

IF YOU WANT TO USE A VARIANT OF MY TEXTURES THAT ISN'T AVAILABLE UNTIL NOW - a Grid version of the newest land textures, another 'cold' version, a seperate dirt pack or something like that - JUST ASK!

Icons should not cause any conflicts.

V4 is a little more 'pixelated' in its sytle than my other terrain packs. It was actually my first one not using cut out pieces 'thrown together', but merged layers. Back then I actually aimed for a this look to make the merging easier and keep their look near the 'pixelated look' of the other graphics objects.
It might be the preview screens do look a little smoother than the actual content due to them beeing reduced in size when looking at them in steam (the original images are 1920x1080). When opening the mod in your browser, the image should be able to be enlargd to it's actual size (for this works in firefox).
So I assume the style is just too pixelated for your taste.
My later versions don't have this 'problem' as I aimed for smoothed out terrains in v6-v8.

Forgot to mention I'm also using a mod for classic food, gold and etc icons. I wonder if any of these mods can cause a conflict?
I'm looking at the preview screens and I'm 90% sure it doesn't look like that in my game. It's hard to explain (I'm not an English native speaker), but the grass and terrain looks awfully artificial and out of place in my game. Anyway, thank you for your time and the replies, I'm giving you a thumbs up just for that.

Well, there are two possibilities - either the mod didn't apply correctly. Then you can try to verify your game cache and then check if the mod is enabled properly in the workshop ingame manager.
Or it looks like on the preview screens and it's just not your taste.
In that case I'd be really interested in what you don't like about it as this kind of feedback is gold for improvements. Beside that there are tons of graphic mods out there from different authors, so I'm pretty sure you'll find your perfect one or create it from those myriads of seperate replacements also available out there. :)

I simply subscribed to the mod. I'm currently using a farm cosmetic mod and Lord of the Rings Soundtrack. Anyway, I'm not going to give you a thumbs down even if it didn't work.

What exactly did you do?
And what other mods do you use?
Montilla Sep 27 @ 6:54pm 
I must have done something wrong because my game looks awful with this mod.
Ozhara  [author] Aug 17 @ 6:28pm 
Yes it does. :)
