Hello everyone. If you don't recognize me already, lately I have been active on the PD forums showcasing my current undergoing which is a re-texturing of the entire Descent 2 texture archive in high resolutions to use with Diedel's D2X-W32. You can visit my Official Website HERE or this thread from the PD forums HERE.

I don't have an ETA on when it will be complete, but I can tell you I have been working on them.

Anyways, this was basically to get the news across the ENTIRE fanbase and to let everyone have something look forward to in the future. Having been working on this for a few weeks now already, I am STILL very excited just seeing them in the game. It really does liven up the game (even though it already was great ;) ) and intrigues me to play.

Hope everyone is well and hopefully soon I can give ya guys a texture or two every once and a while on this thread as I have been on the PD one.

I have no estimation on when I will be finished. To be honest with you all, I work on them when I am in the mood to. I can tell you that I will not dump this project, I will finish it to the end. This is something I have been waiting to do for a long time.

Sorry, I have been stagnant in my postings lately, just been busy with other things. I do have some textures to show though.

Here are a few in the works, the first one is actually completely done.

All texture sizes shown here have been reduced by 50%.

I assume you mainly use Photoshop or something similar for this work? The effects seem fairly similar.

Still, I'd be surprised if it doesn't take a lot of work to do each and every one of these, even with all its smarts... especially if you have to keep faithful to the original Descent 2 textures (which, as illustrated by the matcen textures, is happening quite nicely).

Yes, Photoshop is all I use to create the textures. And yes, I still have a whole lot ahead of me.

Thanks everyone for the support. :)

HOLY S**T! This looks awesome. It looks like a photography of some salt mineral. You should join forces with NovacroN if he wants you to so we can enjoy all these nice Hi-Res textures in D2X-W32 real soon :D The next thing would be a Hi-Poly version of our beloved Pyro if it's possible and maybe also a remake of the Robot textures *drool*

Looks nice man. It's a bit too glossy imo for what the original would most likely look like, but a good interpretation!

Still though... nice work! ;)

It looks kind of like someone slicked porridge down a wall. :/ I didn't recognise it, to be honest, although it shows a good understanding of Photoshop tools.

No, it looks like clean, water polished crystalline material. Very realistic, but too clean. Take away some gloss.

Looking at it, I can see how Sirius could see that. Still, nice job! Take away some of the gloss and it's perfect.

Hey all, just giving you guys a little update as to where I am. My music creation has taken over lately, and I choose to let it continue. That is the reason for inactivity in posting new textures.

I plan to release a couple screens showing parts of levels completely in hi-res. I will post them on the Descent Relived website.

Novacron,

mind updating the link on your Descent Relived page?

The new URL is http://www.descent2.de, and the project name has changed to D2X-XL.
