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.

This is one of the top 3 mods if you dont have an outdated GPU! Made this game look SO much better! I would had never imagined! Dynamic resolution mod + depth of field setting at 0 and this mod all together = WOW. Thank you!

mipmapping is necessary to produce a sense of depth, else near objects will look the same distance as far away objects. Anistrophic filtering sharpens the image when high levels of mipmapping blur the image. You need both. But thanks for unlocking anistrophic filtering.

you're magic!

One thing that made me have a brain fart is you have to actually have Anisotropy ON in the game settings for this to take affect, me dumb dumb. But oh do my roads look nice now.

I'm a bit confused. Is this mod broken or is it working? It's listed as broken in this thread:

does it works for DLC Industries ?

How do you enable this?
