    Gecko's HQ Water Mod Pack

    Gecko's HQ Water Mod Pack



    Today i want to release all my Thief Water Mod packs!


    If you want to use the water textures from this pack for your own purposes,
    feel free to use it
    But it would be nice if you just mention my name in your credits




    The option "ani_rate" was adapted for each water mod in the .mtl files!

    Those look awesome! Too bad almost all are just too saturated to look realistic.

    Gecko, could you show me crystal lava mod just like crystal water mod? How can I use diffrent water mods? I would like to see wild water mod in rivers, crystal "lava" and natural water in pools. Is it possible to have 3 diffrent water mods in the same time?

    Update: "Wave Water Mod" - now is correct green color included [grin files]
    Update: "HD Silent Water Mod" - added new "shining blue" color
    Update: "Oil Water Mod" - added also "red" color


    THX @ clearing! But now you have to update all the download links on your "dark fate" site because they have changed. That happens automatically with google drive...sry!

    This is ALL for free ... and itīs work of many days ... after thousands of tests!

    Did you read that there are also different colors available on some mods?

    I can try to make some softer blue color versions (more dark) too.


    @ Mixthoor

    You can use also 3 different water mods for sure. For example in your own Fan Mission
    But the way you want it ... it does not work! I think you mean to use it on original missions right?

    that's why one should never link to google drive directly, and link the forum topic instead. I get 10+ share requests on old TFix versions a day, mostly from russian users (and unfortunately, it's not possible to create automatic responses for share requests).

    god knows how many rogue mirrors for old versions that people shouldn't be using are floating out there.

    Thanks!
    The Natural Color versions are actually what I was hoping for.

    I don't know if this a resource loading priority bug for NewDark or what the deal is but there are conflicts between water textures when loaded from an FM's own custom \fam\waterhw resources and if you specify one in your mod_path in cam_mod.ini. What happens is that you get like 4/5 frames from the mod_path textures and then 1/5 frames from the FM's custom resources. It looks really jarring. This is fixable by setting whatever water you want displayed as an uber_mod_path, as then you'll not see the FM's custom water textures pop in.

    didnt know how to activate the water mod in the folder even with edited cam_mod.ini.

    is there a special way to use these .png files?

    Right now, its standard. nothing is added in it.

    ########
    ...
    ; these are mod paths that override the active FM in the search order
    ;uber_mod_path mods\UpToDateOSMs+MyGemMod

    ; these are normal mod paths which are applied after the active FM in the search order
    ;mod_path MyBowMod+.\TexturePack

    water flicker

    Even using the tool, i still get the annoying water flicker problem where it plays the frames from 1 water type and then it plays some animation of another water type. Any odea how to fix this?

    that probably means Gecko forgot to specify the number of frames in the mtl file. as soon as that's corrected, it will work properly.

    That's true. But you can add this by yourself.

    Open up the .mtl file with notepad and add ani_frames + the number of water frames.

    For example if there are 83 "blin_" image files = ani_frames 83

    Hey Gecko when 1.0 releases will there be a similar video where you showcase the new look of all the levels as you did for Thief Gold HD. I actually didnīt use the HD mod for T1 but just enjoyed watching that video alone :P

    That must be the best looking water I've ever seen in a game without water physics! Kudos
