NEW Textures for D2X-XL by Irontower

Postby Irontower » Fri May 29, 2009 6:51 pm

Hi all,
the last days I made new textures, mostly from D3, just for fun ;-) Nothing special and not so professional as the existing ones, but I enjoy them and would share them with anyone who likes them to. I made all rocks, metal, ceilings and secret doors. If anyone will make more or better ones for this set, I will be happy ;-)
Ok, here some screenshots:

Don't forget to backup your originals !!!

Have fun ;-)

Very nice! :clap:

Are these intended to replace the Descent 2 textures? In that case, you can simply make a mod out of them and don't have to backup other textures.

Btw, there's a new, better hires reticle available on my website.

I can't say how much I hate Rapidshare. It's dead slow.

I use the textures as a generel replacement for all missions. At the moment I like it more as the many colorful rocks. But yes, a mod can also be done. I also searching and testing good Ice textures, but till now the results are not so good.
Sorry for rapidshare :-( But at the moment I'm testing a download with 380kb/sec. I didn't search for other free hosting. What is a better alternative?

Reticle updated :-) thank you.

You could try to upload to Mediafare or Sendspace.
Also this is a very nice service (the best i've used so far):

Would be nice if Google, or even MS or someone, would offer a "YouTube" of file-sharing sites. These third-party ones give abysmal service.

I suppose they have to work out how to stop people using them for copyright infringement, though, considering YouTube gets abused for that enough as-is.

About adding these files as a mod

As DFW's mod textures unpacked into

E:\Games\Descent2\mods\descent\textures

Am I right to unpack these into

E:\Games\Descent2\mods\descent2\textures

as the hog file is DESCENT2.HOG?

I think I 've answered my own question but I will still post this in case any one else needs to know.

Ice update

Postby Irontower » Tue Jun 02, 2009 6:14 pm

thank you Diedel for hosting them!
Here now the update for the Ice textures. Not exact what I want, but not so bad, I hope :-)
It replaces some rocks with two new textures, one secret door, and two metal files.
I also changed the color of the water a little bit. I used the default hires water tex, I hope this
is ok. If not, than my apologize for this and please remove it. This is my first attempt to
give D2x-xl an other look and wiill be a work in progress. I will update the tex from time to time.
The files can be downloaded from goaruna (thanks Pumo!)

Add -nobotai to d2x.ini to freeze the bots if you want shots with bots but no fights.

www.2shared.com is my favorite file hosting site. I like it much better than rapidshare!

I think that looks pretty cool - much better than the D2 ice textures. I will update the mod on my website with the new textures.

Edit:

Done. I found that I had put the mod's rar file in the wrong folder last time. Now it's in http://www.descent2.de/downloads/mods/descent2-mod.rar (~187 MB).

Hi,
the update is ready, and it's a huge update, because I reworked all textures, sorry for that. Added some special textures and reworked some for a better 3d-look. In the future only small updates will come for some special textures and doors. Most time I use Vertigo, Counterstrike, Enemy within, Anthology and Apocalyptic Factor xl for testing.
you can download from here - 245mb

got problems to find a working hoster for the 245mb file. Sorry if Filefactory is not your prefered. Testet download with 1.1mb/sec.
