Flora Overhaul mod

Here's my first attempt

https://www.nexusmods.com/stalkershadowofchernobyl/mods/1035

* New grasses for the build_details .dds atlas
* 4K version
* My original work, not upscales of lower res grasses
* Unique grasses / plants for most levels (still being tweaked)

I'm currently playing Radiophobia 2 so the grasses are for now tweaked for those graphics (i don't use any shader or ENB either) - so rather bleak (though far less so than the grasses in Radiophobia which are basically all just 1 color in all levels).

It would be fun to add new meshes of trees, bushes etc but i'm betting this is a rather complicated process for STALKER?

Hi, glad to see you here vurt
i think adding new vegetations meshes in Stalker require to rebuild the maps, so yes, I bet it's a lot of work. Maybe you should considere trying replacing existing ones by others of better quality.
Looking forward your work, gl

Ah that sounds too difficult and time consuming.

Seems like 4K textures is making the game unstable, at least for me. I'm getting a lot of crashes and it seems like doing them in 2K fixes it.. well its progressing nicely other than that

4k textures will probably need 64bits binaries otherwise engine will ctd (when changing location ingame for example), because it ran out of memory. you can check Anomaly mod for example of 64bits engine

Thanks, yes it seems so.

Doesn't look that bad in 2K either so it's no big problem.

Gonna update the mod in a little while, there's now more variety in the levels, less copy/paste from previous ones so each one will have e.g a specific plant / flower that wasnt on the previous.
