Insane's HD Part Textures (C&C Update)

Unread postby Insanegrox » Sat Aug 25, 2018 1:43 pm

NOTICE: Development will be resumed after I re-install sporemodder and re-extract all the files, currently most changes made before my hard drive broke will not be salvagable, I might be able to retrieve the files at a later date...

:cc: Alright, so I've been teasing this mod for a while, but now I feel it's in a state that feels like I can release it to the public, This mod (in a nutshell) Replaces the part textures as well as the creature paint textures (well, most of em) with 512x512 variants, This is best used with the 4k creature texture patch/Graphics tweak, HD textures ingame, and any other graphical mods. :cc:

PS: Apparently attached files are a pain in the %&#

Side note: Please give me constructive criticism, You won't offend me, all you will be doing is helping out (seriousy If I'm doing something horribly wrong let me know so that I can fix it)

Roadmap (PERCENTAGES ARE COMPLETE GUESSES):
Spoiler: show
:spore: Every core spore part + Bumpmaps and tint maps : 30% (55% If just diffuse textures)
:ex: Exoskeleton parts : 10%
:cc: Creepy & Cute parts: 10%
:di: Dark Injections Parts: Not started
:ga: Galactic Adventures Captain Parts: 2%
:rp: Bot Parts: Possibly won't happen due to rarity

Other Spore Textures/Decals: Will be in seperate package (old hard drive broke)

Previews:
Spoiler: show
Direct Texture Preview: Left = Maxis, Right = Insane

Creature Previews: Left = Maxis, Right = Insane

This is definitely a beautiful texture mod, i'm viewing it as of now, and it's rather pleasing to the eyes. Wonderful job! :)

When the fish are plenty, our tribes don't enter war. However, when the fish are scarce, all out war ensues. Luckily for us, my tribe knows how to farm fish. :)

To be honest, the bumpmaps on the robot eye and foot of the Grox feel a bit out of place, it is smooth metal after all.
Just another fellow user.

It's possible to improve Spore's graphics using Reshade. I'm planning a V0.2 public release soon

Creepy & Cute/AO patch is a thing, might as well bump.

Why didn't this mod exist before?
P.S: I think you need to use RAR files instead of ZIP files, as they're a better method of file compression.
