NotSoRocky European Map Theme

European version of my NotSoRocky Hills temperate Map Theme.

I always lacked good looking, realistic theme with less rocky cliffs. Aftere releasing the original NotSoRocky theme I thought european version would be nice to have. I didn't just want exactly the same theme so I changed a few textures. I hope you like this variation. If not, feel free to use Theme Mixer mod to mix textures from the temerate version or other themes.

Screenshots above were taken on my new european map I will be releasing soon.


NotSoRocky European Map Theme is... uhm... yes, you guessed it! It is european based map theme. I used a few custom, new textures with various levels of transparency to achieve effect I like.

The texture I focused most is of course cliff texture. It took me a couple hours to find good base images on the internet and create good looking, high resolution, seamless cliff texture with transparency which gave alpha blending that satisfied me. Thanks to this, mountain slopes are no more fully covered with rocky cliffs. Actual rock starts on steeper slopes, much higher than in default themes.

A few other textures has been changed and adjusted to achieve natural look. Some of you might find overlay of resources too bright or too dark, but I personally like more contrast and I just think it looks good. Feel free to test it and give feedback. I see no problems updating this theme as long as it remains satisfying to me.

Visual recommendations

I suggest using Daylight Classic mod by Bloody Penguin. It gives much more natural look to the game and I think most LUT and theme creators suggest using it. The theme is fully playable without it, but in my opinion it does not look as good as with this mod.

The other option is to use Relight mod which gives you more possibilities to tweak lighting ingame and comes with a pack of nice looking LUTs.

And finally, Ultimate Eyecandy mod for even more options to adjust visuals to whatever you like.

As for color correction LUT, you are free to go with whatever you like. A couple suggestions to check out are Definite Vision LUT by Captain Soap, Satellite by creativeDEX,
Overcast Natural by Catch22 and Clarity.

Enjoy! :-)
