Crysis: Photorealistic surfaces due to Texture Pack
News from the Crysis modding frontier: User Ultimarage introduced the first samples of his forthcoming Texture Pack in the Crymod Forum.
Ultimarage announced in the Crymod Forum that he will release a small texture pack with 5 to 6 textures that are prepared for Parallax Occlusion Mapping (POM). POM is an enhanced version of Bump and Normal Mapping that simulates corrugations and immersions.
For the POM texture Ultimarage uses 3Dc /Normal/Height) and DXT1 (Diffuse) as a compression formate. The POM Maps are 512 x 512 pixels big. More information about the textures can be found in the Crymod Forum. In our gallery we show some of the detail textures like stones, leaves and roots, which we think to be really worth looking at. Furthermore we also have some POM textures from other modders. As soon as the Texture Pack is released, we will assemble some direct comparison pictures.
