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?

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
Am I right to unpack these into
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.

Edit: Been there, done that.

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!)
Here some screens from Kool Kave:
PS: I use the minemine cheat to make the screens because the robots will always kill the Photographer
or am I still to slow ???

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

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.
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
