Absolute Texture Packs for SoC discussion

The time has come to go back and re-play SoC. And not to my surprise I realized that the textures in this need improvements as well. So instead of playing (or rather before that) I've started to make ATP for SoC.

Nature pack in this version will not have optional seasons to choose from. Instead of that all areas will have distinct look and you will see different foliage textures there.
For example, Agroprom and Warehouses are lush and green. Garbage and Bar looks desolated and have the autumn feel. Red Forest trees have the strange genetic mutation or disease that makes them reddish. Dark Valley looks like the same disease already spreaded there with everything started to rot. And Yantar is almost completely dead area.

Here are some screenshots from 90% completed Absolute Nature Pack:

Well, you have most likely gotten your COP one and renamed the files and then made textures for the ones which you already haven't.... but good job anyway.

Mostly yes, but I had to create more grass textures as, to my surprise, SoC have more variations than CoP. I've also created more dead trees and some color variations of those from CoP.

But the real advantage of this pack is that the same tree doesn't have the same texture in all areas. They vary depending on the area. For example dead bushes in Cordon have more leaves than those in Garbage and those in Yantar where there are no leaves at all.

Ok, nice job.

Also, could you please check for me. The names of all the hardness levels for when you try and make a new game...

I know that the first is novice... but cant remember the others.. I cannot check myself cause the computer which I play the game on is fried and the computer I am using now has a broken CD drive -.-

Yeah, he has worked hard on this mod as textures are pretty hard to get right. The hardest part is getting the colours just right for each section of whatever you are texturing.

Definitely going to follow the progress made with this texture pack. I was going to replace textures at some point for my mod, and this texture pack might just be the ticket I'm after.
