Saw this at the NWN Forums, and noticed the glowing praise:

Yeah...so....

i was skeptical at first, and even after looking at the 1st few screenshots on the vault page... but then I started noticing real improvements on the ones after that.

It does look very, very pretty.

My only reservation is how it will affect the appearance of existing tiles that have placeables on them that depend on a base part of the tile... if the override changes or elikminates the base part, then the placeable would seem out of whack, I think... still might try it out just to see.

I do not add Overrides myself, so I thought the Builders and those with Techie skills might enjoy them.

Ooo, Elhanan, you should try them - overrides can make it like a whole new game! Just ask MannyJabrielle about the screenies I have of Alex ...

It's also pretty easy to do, so one doesn't necessarily need Techie skills to do so...

I know, but so many threads concerning fixes mention clearing of such files. I would rather avoid the problems, than have to ask for help all the time.

I've got to clear some space on my hard drives before I use these, but they do look phenomenal!

I got this tonite and all I can say is DAMN! It's amazing, love it, can't live without it (so far), lol. Took a small hit on fps but overall, simply stunning!

Truly, this package is highly recommended! From what I've seen, it makes every area look new again! I've got it on both machines - deleting those old games was well worth it! A must have!

Wow...It looks like Oblivion. It does look like brand new. My FPS did take a bit of a hit. Which is surprising since I have a pretty good Graphics Card. But I also play at 1680x1050 resolution... lol. Only have a few problems with it. Some tiles are way too bumpy. Its also really hard to see loot bags on the grass.

  • Oh and it's actually very easy to remove overrides with a little trick. Just reinstall the mod by Select-All from within the zip file and then drag-n-drop them into the overrides folder. Overwrite all. Then you'll notice that all the files are already selected for you then just right click one of the selected files and delete.

as far as overrides go, when I want to use a clean folder, I just rename the original, then create a new folder - BAM! [and yes, manny, I have been known to go override-less from time to time...Wink]

Yeah copying the Override is always a good idea. But seeing as how mine is over a Gb. I tend not to want to do that. I have Nwn on an older Western Digital Raptor. It's fast a hell but only 20Gb. Seeing how my Nwn is over 16Gb (Which is ridiculous for any game + mods) I have to use the space sparringly. Lol and I get the feeling you are lying about the override-less! I bet your Nwn folder is like 100Gbs!

Hiya! Just noticed that the original link in this thread is long gone, and that no one references this project by name - so I posted a new thread here to rectify the issue!
