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.

Render it! is the successor.

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

@Strelok-you don't need both.

Compatibility Report:
- This is succeeded by:
* [Steam ID 1794015399] Render It!
Workshop page:
- This is compatible with the current game version.
- This seems to be abandoned. Future updates are unlikely.
- No public source code found, making it hard to continue by another modder.
- While this mod increases sharpness, it may also introduce noise, moiré patterns and
aliasing problems. Especially on higher resolutions, you might not see the difference
between this mod active or not.
