I did this yesterday, $mart mate, in order to try and ascertain what would be involved for you, in respects to learning how to create an HD pack for "Wolf: ET". I wondered if it would be as complicated as my "RtCW" HD experience and the answer is, "Yes it definitely is." rolleye.gif .

Learning to re-texture things in this environment is very difficult at times and can really grind you down. Anyway, I chose one map, "Siwa Oasis", for a quick texture run-through and spent several hours replacing the old textures. Here's some screenshots, using "ET: Legacy". I'm using the vanilla renderer here, I can't find how to upscale this setting, for some reason I only have this option available in my "ET: Legacy" settings.














































I changed most of the textures, the props and the plants, but there's still much more to do. When I finish my "RtCW HD" pack I'll make one for "Wolf: ET" for you, amigo zwink.gif .
Ronboy
Nice work so far, Gman. respect.gif
daredevil
Looks kick ass to me!
Wolf Enstein
Thanks, lads thanks.gif . That was just the first texture pass, I've now updated it and changed just about everything, including the old ground textures which, although they were great for their time, looked very flat and featureless today. I've used a combination of 4 different sand textures to achieve the look I wanted.

Here's more screenshots:
































I've got a couple of small models to finish and that will be "Siwa Oasis" retextured.
Ronboy
Nice work once again, Gman. That truck model in particular looks amazing. respect.gif

The only remade texture that needs some work in my opinion is the tarp/sheet shown on the first screenshot of your last post.

Yep, you're right, mate, it looks too modern, so I changed for something more contemporary to that era:











Thanks for the feedback, Ron, I hope you like the new canvas version thanks.gif .

OMG! It is marvellous !

If it works like HD-ET, it means your work will fit also for other maps (original and/or custom) using the same "textures", example the same sand, the same trees etc … Is-it the case ?

If YES it is the right thing !

Thanks for your work but take your time, initially I just wanted to learn how-to make these things …. OOoooops

Yes, mate, you just put the ".pk3" file in your "etmain" folder and the HD textures will replace the original ones nicken.gif .

I'm glad you like the work so far, lads, I'll carry on with this and see what transpires zwink.gif .

A few new screenshots, this time from Goldrush and Seawall Battery nicken.gif :



















I've still got tons to do, especially on Goldrush, but things are taking shape now.
Ronboy
Keep up the remarkable work, Gman. respect.gif
Nico'x
That's actually nice, but some players doesn't like to download, so it would take quite time to download when you're connecting to a server...
Not arguing just saying.

$mart
No problem with that Nico, it will work like the HDET pack : just a big file in etmain folder thant WILL NOT BE DOWNLOADED by ETPlayers.
You and your teammates and regulars will have to download it separetely on wolffiles webiste if they want to.
No mandatory to play with it, no side-effect.

Remarkable work, Gman. My only suggestion is to improve the lighting on the Radar map, because it seems a little too bright.

That's better, but I recall that the original version of the map had fog, making it difficult to see in the distance.

You're right, that's what's missing, the fog isn't there now. The "Railgun" map is the same. I never removed the fog, I wouldn't even know how to remove it. I wonder why it's disappeared, mate gruebel.gif ?

Did you perhaps change the sky texture on either map to an HD texture? If so, that could be the reason, as a sky texture's shader file dictates the lighting/fog values. I don't know a lot about shaders myself, but I know a few facts about them. rolleye.gif

No, mate, I haven't touched those files. However, what I did do, was to add a lot of custom maps to my "Etmain" folder, so I removed them and the problem is gone nicken.gif .

Another update, this time a few more screenshots from "Würzburg Radar" and also "Caen 2" nicken.gif :

Understood and good news. Also, very nice screenshots of Goldrush, Caen2 and Radar.

Here's a few more screenshots from Goldrush, mostly of the bank nicken.gif :




















New soldier models. I've modified some of the faces, eyes and uniforms of the troops to make them look at least semi-realistic:

Wow, you're fast! schockiert.gif

Those texture improvements look great, but I can see a texture alignment error on the first Seawall Battery screenshot that you posted. The button is halfway shown on a piece of machinery.

Yes, that's the way the original Splash Damage crew used the texture, mate, having that effect occurring didn't seem to bother them. I'l look for a way around it and try and fix it.

nice work gman. Tell me when its ready for testing :)
Wolf Enstein
Thanks, Jay, I'll keep you posted nicken.gif .

Perhaps it's a bug that the Splash Damage testers overlooked or forgot to fix? rolleye.gif

No, it works for all maps, but the maps that will really improve are the ones without their own custom textures, Kate nicken.gif .
