Sharp Textures

This mod makes textures appear sharper by increasing anisotropy and decreasing mipmapping.

Settings can be adjusted in real time.

Anisotropy makes textures look better at grazing angles. The vanilla anisotropy varies between 0 and 8 for various textures.

Mipmapping makes textures lower resolution as you zoom out, this mod decreases this effect. Decreasing mipmapping may introduce noise / moiré patterns / aliasing problems.

Combining this with the dynamic resolution mod will make it look even better by improving clarity and countering the aliasing isssues.

FPS may get slightly lower depending on settings, this mod may put a bit more load on the gpu.

Thanks to TPB and boformer for basically creating the mod, and thanks to Tim The Terrible and jerenable for testing it out.

Wonderful. The idea is if starting a new map the game only loads game mechanics. All assets are not. Only those would which are enabled in the asset list. Question one: Is this possible? Two: Would that not save a lot of hardware ressources?

@ExplosiveBadass why you in here crying? Make your own mod if you're salty.

I don't know what's with some people flagging half the workshop as 'useless' or 'deprecated', this mod still works fine for me...

Good alternative if you don't wanna fiddle with RenderIt's numbers

Render it! is the successor.

Stupid question: Does this only or mostly affect the gpu as stated or also the amount of ram needed?

This needs updating for the latest game update

unsubscribe and take render it. This mod is useless.
