Immersive Galaxy - Planet Variety, 2K

Description
Cloud mod REQUIRED







This mod contains all the texture in 2K format (2048x1024 px) in the traditional PDX format (DXT1 for diffuse and DXT5 for normals/specular).

I strongly advice using these textures, the difference with 4K is minimal unless you zoom on the planet.

Cloud mod is still required.



If your computer can't run these properly, I suggest you try out the LITE mod, which sacrifice a bit of variety for enhanced performance:



For any other information, please go to the cloud mod.










  • 2.1:
    Barren planet update:
    - 10 new barren planets
    - 10 new cold barren planets
  • 2.0:
    Major rework of the way the mod works :
    - Base has been renamed Clouds, still required for other planet variety mods to work, it is a shared dependency. (580 Mb)
    - "Uninhabitable pack" is now the "2K pack", contains ALL the textures for ALL planets in the 2K resolution. (1.62 Gb)
    - "Inhabitable pack" is now the "4K pack", contains ALL the textures for ALL planets in the 4K resolution. (2.96 Gb)
    - LITE has been reworked a bit and received the new normal maps. (650 Mb)
    - The modular packs are dropped.
    Bug fix :
    - ALL normal maps corrected (they were inverted due to openGL/Dx ♥♥♥♥ery).
    - Many specular reworked and fixed.
    - Many seams corrected.
    Optimization :
    - Removed normal maps for gas giants.
    New planets :
    - 5 new alpine planets
    - 5 new arctic planets
    - 5 new barren planets
    - 5 new desert planets
    - 5 new gaia planets
    - 15 new gas giants planets
    - 5 new molten planets
    - 5 new savannah planets
    - 5 new toxic planets
    - 5 new tundra planets
    - 4 new machine planets
    New clouds :
    - Final rework for the clouds, all of them have been hand drawn. No more procedural generation. Last time I have to do this hopefully.
  • 1.2:
    - New Toxic planets, 11 new planets added to the existing 4. (concern only uninhabitable)
    - New Shielded planets, 4 new planets added to unique one. (concern only uninhabitable)
  • 1.1:
    Optimization:
    - Clouds cut down to 4K for diffuse, 2K for normal, and 1K for shadows (was mistakenly in 8K, should greatly improve performance).
    - Clouds texture variety down, from 35 to 15.
    - Base mod size down to 210 Mo (from 1500 Mb).
    Various :
    - Clouds entirely redone, they're more aesthetically pleasing with more transparency.
    - Tomb world variety now 10 (was 6).
    - Made some planet packs standalone (barren, cold barren, molten, gas giant & tomb).
    - Renamed textures to enhance mod compatibility.
    - Save game enabler available, to put new texture on a old save.
    - Lite version released, half the textures for less powerful computers.

End up with a lot ot out of space because of too many textures issue? Is this due to size of the textures or just that there are way too many textures as a whole between this mod and all my other mods installed?

Please update to 2.3

Looked at the files and I think we are ok, but of course any new planet types will not be included.

I just hope no files get overwritten.

Should work, but the new planet type will only have the vanilla skins I think.
AstroCat Jun 4 @ 9:16am 
I wonder if this series of mods will work with new patch and new planet type.

Something went wrong with the textures of this frozen world, the only additional mod I use that affects planets is Guilli's Planetary modifiers, I have Nightfall, Bugfix and Nuclear fire installed.

do you still have the 1.9 version archived?

@Sandwich Predator
You can still download dependent mods. There's nothing preventing you from doing it.
