Väterchen Frost - winter theme for Snowfall
features handmade realistic textures and normal maps for mountains, water, fertile soil, ruined and gravel.

- made with and for Winterlust map
- Hi-res textures and normal maps for a natural, realistic look.
- Water falls and wild water with spray and foam!
- Long grass/fertile soil and forests are colored to make the map more interesting
- Oil and ore are covered with snow, so no yellow snow like in the vanilla winter theme.
- Realistic sunsets based on alpine winter setting.

Looks best with LUTs like Realistic LUT V1.2 and Colorful Summer Day
Extra clear and cold winter atmosphere with Daylight Classic

Beta version
planned optimizations:
- Perfect scaling for cliff texture
- Normal map for Sand texture
- stronger Snow texture without losing fertile ground
- Ore and Oil texture, if I get them dark enough for being believable (light snow just makes everthing washed out).

VOTE if you like the theme.
If you have any questions or suggestions (ie. lowres variant), feel free to comment!

Why have they done this to us

they should of allowed Snow in the base game

Yes, Snowfall is required for this theme, since it's build as a winter theme, which is exclusive to the Snowfall DLC.

Yes, it works now! Quite beautiful, the two paired together!
Thank you!

@comatosedragon Sorry to hear that. Maybe the map has to be fixed. I'll check today, please try unsubscribing and subscribing the map again tomorrow and give me feedback, if it works.

It actually seems to be something with the map, not the theme, because I can load this theme with another map; although I can not load your map with any theme (other than vanilla)

I'm getting the problem Vinterthorn had. (CS tells me upon loading Winterlust, that Väterchen Frost is missing). I see you fixed A Natural Disasters bug, I don't have that DLC; is there a previous version available? (or is it something else entirely?) Looks awesome - would LOVE to try it

@MrMiyagi indeed, i switched at least 6 times between map theme and map to re-adjust the sun-intensity. These bars are far to sensitive and extreme.

Omg tell me about it. I sit there for hours fiddling with the water colors, moving the thing by micrometers. It's very sensitive. I've never done foam before but I'm gonna give it a try soon
